Grand Opening of North Carolina Vacation Resort, The Cottages Of Glowing Hearth.

June 1997 - The Cottages Of Glowing Hearth in Valle Crucis, North Carolina opened last Fall and has been welcoming a steady stream of Guests from Miami to Chicago. This is an example of the new trend in accommodations in the North Carolina mountains. Previously, lodging in these mountains was simple and sparse. "Roughing It" was a term vacationers grew accustomed to. If you wanted luxurious lodging in the mountains, you went West to the Rockies.

Today, city dwellers are finding the great natural beauty of the mountains more and more appealing. But, they don't want to give up "creature comforts" in order to vacation there. The Cottages of Glowing Hearth has seen to it that Guests are treated to every luxury amenity.

These vacation homes are a very spacious 1500 square feet. The pine ceilings are 18 feet high and cathedral windows soar up to meet them. Stone fireplaces and long, covered front porches with screen doors enhance the country flavor here. While, cable TV, VCR, air-conditioning, icemaker, E-mail and Internet access, FAX machine, concierge service, and huge Jacuzzi, assure Guests that every modern need is met.

The 2 bedroom, 2 bath interiors have been professionally designed with massive, overstuffed upholstery and woodcarved armoires and beds, more reminiscent of a Country Estate than a vacation rental.

The Cottages are nestled on 40 acres of lush forest and gently sloping pastures. Guests hike through the woods and climb rock formations right on the property. Picnic sites and bar-be-que grills dot the landscape. Views from this 3700 foot elevation are spectacular.

While honeymooners find the Cottages of Glowing Hearth filled with romance, families appreciate the playground, barnyard filled with animals, tree-climbing area and wide-open spaces great for keeping children happily occupied.

"We have a large number of Guests from Atlanta, Georgia and Washington D.C., " observe the owners who live on the grounds. " In just a few hours by car, they can leave the city and visit an entirely different world. These are often high-powered business people who really need to unwind. Here, they can relax in the awesome natural beauty of this area and still enjoy luxurious accommodations. They have the perfect opportunity to refresh both mind and body in this setting."

The Cottages of Glowing Hearth is located in the historic village of Valle Crucis, North Carolina, in the Blowing Rock/Boone area. For further information call 704-963-8800 or E-mail at : You can find our Web Page at:
