Our house likes to travel. We love the existing west, the beach, nowhere Ridge and Smoky Mountains and historic sites for example Mount Vernon and Independence Hall. Our family owns an apartment at Chetola Resort in Blowing Rock, New york on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It's been a family group get-a-way for years so we never tire from the beauty of the lake, the slow pace and also the amenities the location has to offer. From your quaint little town of Blowing Rock using its shops and restaurants to Linville Falls and Caverns and Biltmore House to activities like riding, skiing, whitewater rafting and hiking.Mount Vernon Condo
In May of 2009 i was offered a friend's condo to get a week in Bradenton, Fl. Excited to look, all the preparations had been made. As it turns out, the week was not available all things considered and we thought our trip will be canceled. We could have chosen to remain in a hotel, but that would not very comfortable for 5 people. Therefore we started brainstorming. When we were going to use someone's condo for that week, maybe we could trade a week at our condo for a week in Florida. We started emailing other owners of rental properties of comparable size and value. After about 6 or 7 attempts with it doesn't help we found an enjoyable 2 bedroom house in St. Petersburg, Fl. empyrean.net Their ad on a holiday rental site read "would consider swapping", therefore we emailed the owner and two days later we'd a contract. We would head to St. Petersburg in June as well as the other owner would stay weekly at our place in Blowing Rock in November. Our condo just isn't usually booked much in November so that it would be a win-win for both people.
As it turns out not on the beach was obviously a blessing even as visited 6 different beaches. Nothing altered so no taxes were required. With all the savings over a rental or hotel we had been able to visit 2 theme parks. We spent one day at Busch Gardens and one at Seaworld.
