About 116 Globe Road

Springhaven Inn, from around 1889 or earlier, is redolent with history. In the late 19th century, it stood on the corner of Globe Road and what is now Main Street, Blowing Rock where it was a stagecoach turn station. It was a place where the horses were watered, fed and often changed on the way to the next destination, Linville. Globe Road was the only access from Lenoir, at foot of the mountains to the mountaintop villages. Since its beginnings, the cottage has been offering hospitality to Blue Ridge travelers from around world. The cottage has been a boarding house, a bed and breakfast, a popular restaurant in the 1960s and a residence at one time to the Spring family. For the past several years, Springhaven has operated as a rental property. Now, Springhaven seeks a new destiny. The cottage was moved long ago from the front to the foot of the sloping grassy lot. It is next door to the BRAHM museum and close to the Rumple and St. Mary's churches, The tract is zoned central business district which permits multiple uses. Renovate the cottage into a charming residence or turn it back into a restaurant. Build elegant condominiums on the front of the lot. The tract's zoning flexibility allows your vision to soar. Springhaven has evolved over time from simple rustic lodging and dining into a six-bedroom, 6.5-bath cottage. It is eclectic and charmingly funky as it has been renovated with the times using a variety of heating and cooling systems, plumbing and kitchen updates. The square footage of the main level is 1,925 square feet. The second floor is 1468 square feet, but the ceilings are under 8 feet high. The ceiling height disallows it from being counted in the total square footage of 3,433 square feet. This rare property is the most desirable tract available in the central business district. Blowing Rock continues to be a magnet for visitors worldwide. This historic property has incredible possibilities with only your imagination as the limit.
