Hi there!  We're so glad that you're checking out our cabin - Hemlock Hill Cabin in gorgeous Blowing Rock, North Carolina.  We're a husband and wife host/managing team. 

Hemlock Hill was established in 2020, during Covid-19!  It was a lucky Zillow find and completely meant to be.  We purchased sight unseen and were under contract for two weeks before seeing the cabin in person.   The cabin was destined to be a rental property, we worked very hard to prepare, decorate and furnish the cabin so that we could accept our first guests within two weeks of closing.  We've been loving every minute of hosting Hemlock Hill ever since! 


Hemlock Hill Cabin is constantly evolving as we are always making home improvements and adjustments to make your stay as special as possible.  For the first 1.5 years of hosting, we lived 6.5+ hours away in Washington, DC and one of us is at the cabin at least once a month taking on DIY projects.  We have yet to hire a handyman or landscaping crew.  Now that we live in Charlotte, NC, we can be even more hands on and spend less precious hours in the car. 

Rachel was born in neighboring Ashe County and was raised just down the road in Boone, NC.  As a young person Boone, Blowing Rock and surrounding communities all blended together, so Blowing Rock feels as much like home to Rachel as Boone!  Peter was born in Italy and moved to Waynesville, NC (just outside of Asheville) at a young age.  Even though we are not mountain local anymore, we still have the NC mountains in our hearts and souls.

Our family can't wait to welcome you and yours!
