Valle Crucis Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Large Loft + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Enjoy fresh mountain air and peaceful atmosphere at Bear Tree Cabin! Cute as a button, it's nestled on the margin of a forest and gets its nickname from an unusual natural formation on a tree in the yard that looks like a bear is hugging it.

Less than a mile from the Watauga River, the cabin is situated near a rural farming neighborhood. Fishing, canoeing or swimming in the Watauga River is less than a mile away. Bring your mountain bike and enjoy the gentle grade of the Watauga River Road ... or for a little more adventure, let our resident mountain bike expert recommend a nearby trail that fits your abilities ... And if road biking is your passion, find out why Lance Armstrong said of our area '...I'd say it's the best area for training in the whole of the United States.' (Cycle Sport June 1998).

Shopping at the historic Mast General Store is only 3 miles away.

Restaurants of all types are in nearby Banner Elk, Boone and Blowing Rock as well as a few in the village of Valle Crucis itself. Hiking trails are available onsite or within a short drive.

And during the winter months ... Three ski resorts are within a 30 to 40 min. drive. Cross country skiing onsite is available if snow conditions are right. Snow tubing is an option for the non-skier at some ski resorts nearby. At the end of the day, come 'home' to a relaxing hot tub.

A resident of Watauga county for most of his life, owner Jim Henson has traveled around the world climbing mountains including Kilimanjaro, Mt. Elbrus, and Mt. Ranier. He is an avid mountain biker and enjoys playing tennis. He grows Christmas trees on part of his farm, but the vast majority of his 250 acres is woodlands and he has donated a conservation easement on more than half of his land to the Blue Ridge Conservancy. If you call for more info you will likely speak with Jim's assistant, Angela (a veritable wealth of knowledge).

After owning the 250-acre farm for nearly 40 years, Jim decided to build a cabin in 2006 for friends and family to share in the beauty of the location. Valle Crucis is centrally located to Banner Elk, Boone and Blowing Rock.

Bear Tree cabin gets its name from an unusual natural formation on a tree near the cabin. The wooded surroundings allow for the discovery of many of Mother Nature's wonders! An extensive network of mountain bike trails is not far away.

PERFECT GETAWAY IN VALLE CRUSIS

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Bear Tree for the first time this weekend and had a fantastic time. This cabin had all we needed, including peace, quiet and seclusion. All the amenities were there and the place was immaculate.

HIDE-AWAY IN THE HILLS

  • 5 of 5
Bear Tree Cabin is all and more the description said it would be. It was easy to find(w/o a GPS :) ) Accessible, but at the same time secluded and quiet. It is a wonderful spot close to many activities, even though we only fished. You are within an hour of some top rate fly fishing streams and the Watauga River is a stone's throw from the cabin. This is by far one of the best places I have stayed in the Boone area at any price. If you visit, please take care of it; it is a treasure!

PEACEFUL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We decided to get away to the mountains this Christmas and stayed at the Bear Tree Cabin. We were not disappointed. It was everything this site claimed and more. It took me a while to take it all in. The cabin itself is beautiful, well-kept and includes more than enough for what is needed. The bonus is the surrounding nature as far as the eye can see-just breathtaking. We are planning other family getaways to the Bear tree cabin in the future. Angela was pleasant and accommodating in every detail of our stay. Thank you for a great stay!!

HIDDEN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
I took my wife, daughters, grand children and of course son in law's up for a tree cutting at Circle C Tree Farm and it was our second trip. We hope to make this an annual event and you could not ask for a better location for peace and quiet. The host and hostess are both incredibly nice and the cabin is clean and has everything you could ask for. Give this place a try and I promise you will be coming back. Great location, great hot tub, great privacy and perfect for your get away.

VERY RELAXING STAY IN A WONDERFUL COTTAGE IN THE WOODS!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this wonderful cabin for two nights. The cabin was cozy, well-maintained, clean, and had all the necessities that were needed. It was located up in the woods, and secluded so that you had privacy. It was cool and comfortable, especially at night, and you will not miss the air-conditioning. We loved the hot tub and it is lit up at night. We spent time rocking in the rocking chairs on the front porch and eating our meals outside on the cute little table on the back porch. The area around Valle Crucis is very beautiful and it all made for one of the most relaxing vacations trips for both of us. The owner was so helpful and there are a lot of special touches at the cabin for your use. Make sure that you visit Mast General Store which is a short drive away. We also went into Boone and Blowing Rock and there is an Ingles Grocery store in about a 10 minute drive. T his cabin would be wonderful for a family too because there is an area upstairs with twin beds, a couch, fooseball, and TV area. There are also books and games for the kids. There were just two of us, but we slept on the King bed upstairs and with the windows open and the cool mountain air - you will sleep like a baby!!! It was so relaxing, stress free, and just a "picture-perfect" cabin in the woods. We would recommend the cabin to anyone - couples, family etc. - it has plenty of room and there was not anything that we did not enjoy about the cabin and our trip to Valle Crucis. We are already planning our next trip there soon!!!!
