The Best of Both Worlds

All of our members have “heard the Call” to Blue Ridge Mountain Club. And it varies for each member. The beauty of BRMC is that it truly offers something for everyone. For Susannah and John DuPuy, it was the sheer natural beauty of the property, coupled with the fact that it was just a short drive from their Charlotte home. And with two small children (Jack 10 and Meghan 7) who are immersed in school, sports, and daily activities, that was a major deciding factor for the DuPuy family.

A short drive, yet worlds away

John and Susannah are both busy attorneys in Charlotte. Like many young families, they strive to balance work, kids, obligations, extracurricular activities, and family time. They wanted a vacation home that would fit their busy lives. “The challenge,” says John, “was to find a family retreat that was a short drive away so we could make the soccer or baseball games on Saturday mornings, and still have time to escape for the weekend. Blue Ridge Mountain Club gives us that perfect, best-of-both-worlds opportunity.”

Fun For The Whole Family

Susannah and John wanted a family retreat that not only appealed to them, but to their children as well. It was important that they find a second home that offered activities and fun for all four of them. BRMC gives them just that. “Both of our kids love it up here,” John says. “It is very gratifying to know that there is a place — just two hours away — that we can always come to that not only promotes nature and outdoor recreation, but gives us a chance to really connect as a family. It’s something we’ll enjoy for a lifetime.”
