Eco-friendly now w/solar panels! If you are looking to be close to Boone, but be on a river & feel like you are in the country, this is the house!! We offer something for everyone. There is river tubing, kayaking, fishing, biking, hiking, horseback riding, skiing & so much more. With river frontage & scenic mountains, The New River Ramble is located in the Historical District of Todd, North Carolina. You feel as if you are away from everything with the quietness of the river in the mist of the fields & mountains, but you are still within 10 miles of downtown Boone and Appalachian State University & 15 miles from Blowing Rock. Other areas of interest, within just a short drive, include Grandfather Mountain, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Banner Elk, Valle Crucis, & Linville Falls. Appalachia...Eco-friendly now w/solar panels!

We also offer several bikes to ride on the Railroad Grade Road. 10 miles of flat, paved road that runs along the banks of the river offering hours of bike riding fun. The front porch that runs along the entire front of the house is a wonderful place to relax in a rocker or the porch swing as you sip on your morning coffee. It also offers a peaceful, pastoral/mountain view & you can enjoy watching early morning cyclists & runners passing by. The driveway is paved w/ plenty of parking & has a basketball goal. ** Although this property is located on a level lot, 4WD or chains are always recommended when visiting the mountains in winter. **You must be 25 yrs old to rentMore
