Why Carol Hemphill chose Mill Ridge
We love this area for its scenic beauty and array of recreational, educational, and cultural activities and events. From the peaks of Grandfather Mountain, to the depths of Linville Gorge and Caverns, there's just no place like it on Earth. Come find out for yourselves.
What makes this House unique
We enjoy the quiet majesty of the mountains in a community setting. The neighborhood hiking trail, swimming pool, and tennis court are a stone's throw from our driveway. The best ski slopes in NC are 10 minutes away. The first stay at our house was Thanksgiving 2011. The greatest thing about our house is it provides one place for such a large group, which gave us all the chance for more family time. Parents with little children don't have to go back to their hotel room and stay with the little ones. We had 17 and this was the first year we all got to stay in one location. The kitchen works great, with one range and one cook top, enough 'eyes' for our short order breakfasts. Toaster and toaster oven producing bagels and toast. while the Keurig and a 14 cup coffee maker woke us all up. The three 80 gallon water heaters made sure there were no cold showers. The cousins that don't get to spend as much together time as we did when we were little really got some quality time together. So what makes our house so unique isn't even there. It is in all the cars that pull up and unload your family. Then the most wonderful family experience begins!

Awesome location at home there were 24 of us for a week and we had hot water the whole time housekeeping could’ve been better but we had no problems whatsoever we went to return thanks so much
We arrived to a great clean house. There are a few things that need to be repaired but minor in nature.
The fire ring and new gas girl we great for outdoor relaxing. Close grocery store was also a plus
Great home, lots of space
We went up for our daughters college graduation and wanted to stay close with a large group. The home was convenient to Boone, in a beautiful area and neighborhood. Plenty of room for a large group. Thanks
House was clean and comfortable. Our church retreat had an amazing time and lots of room to gather together for devotional and worship time.
Absolutely loved this house! It was perfect for our large family. We didn’t feel crowded even with 23 people! We can’t wait to return!
Great stay for a large group
House is much better than pictures on the listing!
