Excerpt from:
The 6 Best Locations For A Summer Home
June 26, 2014 by Hadley Henriette

“2. Blowing Rock, North Carolina
Home to Blowing Rock, a huge cliff over 4,000 feet above sea level, this North Carolina town is genuinely Miami north thanks to a few key developers and a steady buying of homes by Miamians with fond memories of summer camp. The town is quaint, the summers are cool an there are endless outdoor activities that require no Louboutins.”

Firethorn Subdivision
“Deep in the High Country of western North Carolina and shaded by the magnificent Blue Ridge Mountains is Firethorn, named after the jewel red berries of the indigenous firethorn plant.

Located between the pioneering town of Boone and the historic resort village of Blowing Rock, Firethorn is just off US Highway 321. The Blue Ridge Parkway forms the southern boundary of the community and the Middle Fork of the New River is the northern boundary. Firethorn is easily accessible by the major interstates of I‑40 to the South, I‑81 to the West and I‑77 to the East. Access to Firethorn is convenient as it is approximately two hours from the prominent North Carolina cities of Charlotte, Winston Salem, Greensboro, and Asheville.

Firethorn is an unsurpassed gated mountain retreat with breathtaking views of Grandfather Mountain and Flat Top, rising to a 4000 ft. peak at its highest ridge line near Thunder Hill. Hiking trails have been sculpted through the woodlands, and gently carved around the cliffs, streams and meadow neighborhoods that owners share with deer and wild turkey. These neighborhoods are connected by a network of common areas and roads that wind unobtrusively through the carefully preserved hardwood forests, wildflowers, trout ponds and rock formations that form the perfect backdrop for custom building on the 150 acres of Firethorn.”
