To give you a glimpse into this blissfully comfortable and inspiring world, we’ve compiled a list of eight reasons to love living at Blue Ridge Mountain Club (and there are many more)!
1. The perfect location of the Blue Ridge Mountain Club
With Boone and Blowing Rock just up the road, you can be hiking a mountain on a whim. And the Blue Ridge Parkway is just minutes from the BRMC gates. This location gives you easy access to one of the most scenic roads in the entire country. Once on the Parkway you’re only 30 minutes drive from Grandfather Mountain and the Linn Cove Viaduct. Cascades waterfall and a plethora of other natural landmarks are thirty minutes drive in the other direction. Not to mention the rich cultural scene and outstanding shopping and dining. When friends and family visit, take them to the Tweetsie Railroad, Doc’s Rocks Gem Mine and Blowing Rock Art and History Museum. Everyone wants to come and visit when you live at the BRMC.
