Cone Manor, NC

On a search for the brightest fall leaves, my mother and I stumbled upon this beautiful estate.  When we stepped out of our car, I was instantly stunned by how wonderful the trees smelled. All the foliage was lush and vibrant. Cone Manor was built during the Gilded Age by Moses Cone.This beautiful mansion is located on the Blue Ridge Parkway, just outside of Blowing Rock, North Carolina. I’m so happy I found it so I can share it with you all.

The views from the porch are stunning. Mountains and a lake can be seen on the horizon. This is a perfect space to sit back and enjoy the scenery. So often we spend our days running around, wanting to be entertained, but this place makes you stop and just take in the sights.

The estate sits atop 3,500 acres. There are hiking trails, horseback riding, and horse-drawn carriages. One of the reasons I love North Carolina so much is because you are always surrounded by nature. I’ll never not be impressed by how green the trees are that cover every mountain. I would highly suggest you spend some time wandering the trails while you’re here.

If you know me personally, then you know I’m a sucker for white pillars and wrap-around porches. And this place has both! I honestly couldn’t take enough photos.

Cone Manor is a hidden gem in the mountains of North Carolina. If you’re in the area, I would highly recommend visiting. It’s a fun, free activity that allows you to soak up the beautiful outdoors. The views are simply stunning. You won’t be sorry!
