Overview

Boone Cabin Rental Photos and Description

BREATHTAKING BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAIN VIEWS: WOW! LOG CABIN ON THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE

WE INVITE YOU TO RELAX AND REJUVENATE AT THE CABIN AT KILKELLYS!

Perched high on a finger ridge of the Eastern Continental Divide, in a gorgeous pristene area of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Kilkelly's luxurious CABIN provides amazing long-range views, fully comparable to those seen from nearby Blue Ridge Parkway overlooks. In this unique 22-acre setting, you are surrounded by tall mountains and deep valleys, while privately nestled among flowers and gardens. Privacy was key in locating the CABIN. It is several hundred yards down the ridge from the Main House, out of sight and sound. And there are no other buildings or dwellings within sight or sound.

The remarkable long-range and layered views from the CABIN are seen from a high and vaulted prospective, extending over 100 miles across natural, undisturbed woodlands and fields! Sunrises and sunsets are varied and magnificent. It's also a perfect place to experience dramatic weather changes and cloud formations -- above you and below! And at night, it's a star gazer's dream! With no city lights, the stars are bright and plentiful (we furnish binoculars). And there are no highways nearby, or traffic noise to interfere with orchestral sounds of nature. And WOW, we have NO MOSQUITOES! Kind of a mountain paradise.

The CABIN itself is a custom 1600 SF, upscale cedar log home. It has two King bedroom suites, two pull-out sofas, two full baths, a fully appointed and stocked kitchen, a large gas grill, comfortable dining for six (inside and out), fine living room couches and swivel-rocker chairs, and a stone gas fireplace. There is a small pantry, lots of cabinet space, a game room with an indoor shuffleboard, and four wide-screen HD TVs with DVRs and DVDs (one with 3D). On the outside is a covered front porch, and open deck wrap around to an elevated attached gazebo, a lower patio with a 6-person Jacuzzi, lounge chairs, hammocks, and swings. We also have outdoor play areas and equipment for children and adults, including a 45-foot rope swing, a geo-dome, a standard swing set, a regulation horse shoe pit, and a stone fire pit. And of course, many adjacent and nearby walking trails, streams, and cascades.

The Blue Ridge Parkway entrance at Bamboo Gap is only 1/3 mile from the CABIN, and Boone and Blowing Rock are just minutes away. Mileage distances: Boone downtown 5mi.; Blowing Rock downtown 8mi.; Appalachian Ski Mtn. 6mi.; Hawksnest Tubing & Zip Line Resort 18mi.; dSugar Mtn. Ski Resort 22mi.; Beech Mtn. Ski Resort 28mi; Banner Elk 22mi.; Grandfather Mtn. 19mi.; Linville Gorge Falls 34mi.; Mt. Mitchell 71mi.; Asheville 100mi.; West Jefferson 26mi.; Charlotte 100mi.; and HEAVEN -- 0mi.!

Our goal is to share this remarkable natural setting with our guests by providing private, warm and luxurious accommodations, and a memorable visit to the Blue Ridge Mountains.

WE WOULD LOVE TO WELCOME YOU TO THE CABIN AT KILKELLYS.

Your Innkeepers,

Joanie and Gary Kilkelly

About Joanie & Gary Kilkelly

We are grateful to able to share this beauty with others. We want to provide a unique vacation destination, centered around the solitude, serenity, and majesty of this special place in the oldest mountain range on our continent.

Joanie & Gary Kilkelly purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Joanie & Gary Kilkelly chose Boone

We are fortunate to live on a beautiful ridge that joins the Blue Ridge Parkway, midway between Blowing Rock and Boone. Wanting to share with others our magnificent year-round views of the mountains, we designed and built the CABIN on a private bluff further out our ridge and well apart from our Main House.

Our mission is to provide our visitors with a rare combination of luxurious surroundings in the midst of some of the most rugged mountain beauty in the Appalachians.

WE SUGGEST READING THE REVIEWS SUBMITTED BY OUR GUESTS. ALL REVIEWS AND GUEST COMMENTS ARE INCLUDED HERE AND ACCURATELY QUOTED.

Beautiful Cabin in the Moutains

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 5 nights at this little piece of paradise! The cabin is everything we hoped it would be and more. We came to the came to rest and relax and we got what we asked for. Joanie and Gary were great at making recommendations for the surrounding area - we loved Boone and Blowing Rock. The nice shops in Blowing Rock were my fav! We will definately be back!

Beyond Expectations!

  • 5 of 5
We came to The Cabin for rest & relaxation and got just what we were looking for. Boone & Blowing Rock are great communities to wander around, the Blue Ridge Parkway is literally right around the corner, and then there's the Cabin. I have never visited a more perfect spot to unwind and relax. The furnishings are top notch; the kitchen has everything you could want, as far as appliances for making meals; there are board games, shuffleboard, and outside activities, too. I can honestly say that this was our best holiday ever since we were at the Cabin the week before Christmas and came home to less stress & worry! Perfect way to begin the new year. Thank you, Joanie & Gary, for providing guests such a wonderful stay!

Incredible Cabin, Incredible Views--We'll return soonest

Incredible Cabin, Incredible Views--We'll return soonest
  • 5 of 5
Was the listing description accurate regarding the location? It was. I thought it may be just slightly more remote than it was. It's not a far drive from Boone, NC at all which was good. The porch faces east and you will get an incredible sunrise from the swinging bench. It was great to wake up for 10 minutes, watch the sunrise, then head back to sleep for awhile.

Did the listing photos accurately reflect the rental's appearance and amenities? It did and then some. The owners have spared no expense with high end appliances (down to a really nice waffle maker and coffee grinder). They also have a shuffleboard table which was great entertainment. One would be hard pressed to find as many amenities offered for a similar price especially in a mainstream hotel.

Was the property clean and well-maintained? It's spotless. Pristine. Never stayed in a cleaner place.

Was the owner helpful in answering your questions or concerns? Absolutely.

Would you recommend this property to a friend or relative? Already have and we will return next chance we get.

What nearby activities, attractions and restaurants would you recommend? Hiking Grandfather Mountain and the surrounding area...or you could just hold up in the cabin for a few days and be just fine.

This is our third trip to the Kilkelly property. This place is perfect. Gary and Joanie are great hosts. The cabin is great for families, as well as the couple looking for a quiet get away. The views are breath taking and the grounds are meticulously maintained. Many people have their favorite vacation spot...we have now found ours.
