About John and Dianne Purifoy

We live in the Inner Banks of N.C. on the Pamlico River near Belhaven, N.C. We love going from the coast to the mountains for a change of scenery. We love sailing, paddle boarding and kayaking. We also enjoy the beautiful walks at the condo and all the different places to go.

John and Dianne Purifoy purchased this condo in 2014

Why John and Dianne Purifoy chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

Because you can be in Blowing Rock in 20 to 25 mins, in Boone in 20 mins, Banner Elk in 15 min, Linville in 25 mins and Beech Mountain in 25 mins. You can't find a better centrally located location in a beautiful setting! Also, Otter Falls hike is just 1/2 mile up the road, zip lining and snow tubing is a little over a mile up the road, and Grandfather Winery is about a quarter mile to the left on 105 towards Boone. Lots of opportunity for hiking nearby and beautiful walks just outside the door of the condo!

Clean, quiet, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this condo was great. It was clean, quiet, and relaxing. After a short drive (20 min), we tried out a few breweries in the Boone area. We also hiked grandfather mountain, Linville falls, rough ridge, and saw Linville caverns which were all close by. Would definitely come back!

Beautiful Vista!

  • 5 of 5

The condo had everything that we needed. Adequately clean, as well Furnished with durable items so I wasn't worried that my pre-teen might harm anything. The electric wall heaters took a bit of trial and error to adjust since the writing on the dials had mostly worn off. We did not lack for heat. Overall, enjoyed! Thanks,

Beautiful location. Quiet area and very close to near by towns.Condo could use a thorough cleaning. Out dated heating thermostats. Only one closet. Inside it had (towels sheets blankets etc....and vacuum cleaner) the other closet had a stackable washer and dryer and the other one had a pad lock on it. If you have 3 or 4 guest staying, this is not feasible. This should be stated on the website. Sponges and hot pads for the kitchen were dirty. White chair in living room was very dirty on the arms. Fire place pilot light kept going out. When you wait all year to enjoy a vacation you want the place you choose to be something to remember. Maybe put more emphasis on updating the inside ..the senery is beautiful.

Owner's Response: Kathy L, We are glad you enjoyed the location and view from our condo and are sorry the closet space did not meet your needs. Those needs vary from guest to guest ie. A couple stayed in the condo for five weeks this summer and loved it. The closet space was fine for them. The closet with the miniature lock is used by the cleaning people. We appreciate the heads up on the dirty sponge and pot holder. They should not have been there. They are being replaced as necessary by the cleaning people. The chair is somewhat worn and has been a concern of ours. It is being replaced in December. Although the type of thermostats in our condo are still used in the majority of condos in the area you make a good point. We will be replacing the bedroom and living room thermostats with updated models in December. Thank you for being our guest and the helpful feedback. John

Older property with good disposition, great views and beautiful area.

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a quiet place to get away, enjoy the majesty of creation and celebrate our Silver Anniversary. This cozy condo provided nicely for that experience. We are used to a kingsize bed sleeping experience, so the queen was an adjustment :) The condo has been modestly updated, good wifi, microwave, fridge, stove and all associated amenities...we were going for an affordable, clean place for us to relax after our daily adventures and this place met that across the board. Great view of Grandfather Mtn, easy, close access to the Blue Ridge Parkway and all the beautiful surrounding towns!

Peaceful view and stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the condo. It's a quiet time of year so there was little activity which made for a peaceful and relaxing stay. The owners' instructions got us there and into the unit without any difficulty. The condo was equipped with everything we needed for cooking dinner in during our three night stay. It's perfectly located for day trips to Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk and Valle Cruces as well as local wineries. Would highly recommend.

Nice condo with an amazing view!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed staying at this condo when we came up from SW Florida for the Miami/App. State football game. Fit our needs perfectly. The view from the balcony at Grandfather mountain is awesome. The unit is a little dated but Bed was comfy and everything was nice and clean and did not see a single bug while we were there. Drive up to the condo is steep and may be an issue in the winter months. Overall I would recommend staying here as it's only 20 minutes from Boone and very close to Blue ridge Parkway, Grandfather mountain and Miles of hiking trails !!
