I am a graduate of Appalachian State University and was fortunate enough to secure a career in the Boone/Blowing Rock area after graduation. Within time, I became a small land developer/realtor and obtained my General Contractors license. Although I still actively work in the Boone and Blowing Rock area, my job has me in other areas quite often. I purchased this cottage so that I would have a place to spend time with friends and family. However, I am not spending as much time in the area as I once did. Because of this, I have chosen to rent my home when I am not using it.

Mark Lavin purchased this cottage in 2007

The location of the property was the key reason why I chose it. You can be in downtown Blowing Rock in 13 minutes, Downtown Boone in 12 minutes, and in downtown Banner Elk in 20 minutes. There are several hiking trails within walking distance or a very short drive. Only 4 miles from the nearest entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Perfect size cabin for the 3 of us and a couple of dogs.
The kitchen is well laid out and stocked with plenty of cookware, dishes, and glasses.
Everything was clean, well maintained, and the furniture was comfy.
The owner was easy to work with as well.
The location is great - 10 minutes from Boone or Blowing Rock restaurants or 15 minutes to skiing or tubing.
We'll certainly see if this property is available next time we are heading back to the area.

I too don't leave reviews, this is the first one. I stayed in this lovely property for 3 nights at the beginning of the 'leaf season', and it was perfect. Surrounded by beautiful trees and rhododendron bushes. Very private and secluded, and off a well maintained gravel road. The drive up is nice from the road, you feel like you are getting away from it all, but it is convenient to Blowing Rock and Boone. The rental had all that was described by Mark. Clean, comfy, welcoming,,, nice in every way. I will stay here again.

Normally, I don't write reviews, but this is an exception. My husband and I spent the weekend 15-19 Feb 2012. We choose this property because we have rented from this owner before and the previous rental property was gorgeous, loved it!!
When we arrived the patio area outside was nice. Inside the kitchen had modern decor, with nice cabinetry and counter tops, as well as, all the amenities ( cookware, utensils, plates, condiments) you would have at home. The living room was small but had a comfortable leather sofa and chairs.The location of this property is great close to Boone, Blowing Rock, Blue Ridge Pwy!
There are Several disappointing reasons that we will not return are:
1. Entertainment, well there are only about 15 available channels (shopping network, Christian network, PBSkids, Diy, HGTV, food network, national geographic, rest pay per view with direct tv), so if you want to sit back and relax and watch a movie forget it, and there's not even a news channel available, bring your own DVD or entertainment. There are no game systems either. Great wifi though!
2. We used the bedroom down stairs, because the loft bedroom would get to hot because of the heat rising from down stairs in the living room. The bedroom down stairs was small there was no place to put our clothes, because the 3/4 dresser drawers was full of bed linens. Inside the closet, stored on floor was the, vacuum cleaner, fans, boxes etc, and on the closet shelves, pillows and board games stored. The bed was firm, but the smell of some one else's BODY ODOR on the sheets was horrible, it definitely killed the mood. The comforter was dirty, something had been soiled on the small portion at the foot of the bed. The bathroom counter top was small and cramped / no storage room at all (not on the counter top or underneath), I think the grout was suppose to be white or gray but it was so dirty, I don't know?? If your a lady you know how important light is when applying your makeup, I could get more light from travel size make up .We only had, two regular size towels, two hand towels to use for four days, there was no other towels available. Talk about not feeling clean and fresh. To add to the bathroom disaster, there was a, limited supply of hot water, ladies shampoo your hair and shave your legs quick or your man will take a cold shower! Do your self a favor, pick another property or book yourself a room in a new hotel in Boone. For the HARD EARNED MONEY paid paid this is a sor
Owner's Response: It is quite disappointing to read a review like this since all of my other reviews have always been a 5 out-of-5. It is my goal to make sure that all of my guest's have the best time possible while staying at my home. I first would like to thank you for the condition that you left my home
upon check-out. The home looked as if nobody had even been there. I also appreciate your kind words about the kitchen, amenities, and living room furniture. The kitchen seems to be a hit with most of my guests. I have Direct TV. I do not have Pay Channels, but I have all of the local network channels (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX), HNL (Headline News Network) and a variety of movie channels. I do not have a Game System, nor did I indicate so on my amenity list. The dresser drawer in the downstairs bedroom does have additional sheets (4 sets) in 1 of 5 of the dresser drawers. These additional sheets are in case you need fresh sheets during the stay and if anyone needs to use the Aero Bed. The closet does have Vacuum cleaners in it, and additional pillows and blankets for our guests pleasure. There is plenty of room in the 7' wide closet for clothes to hang. I do not understand the comment about someone else's body odor since those sheets were laundered and put on that bed by myself the day prior to your arrival. The comforter is not dirty. It does have a small spot at the edge of the bedspread that is discolored. I had accidentally spilled about 1/4 cut of bleach at the bedspread and immediately rinsed it to help prevent it
totally bleaching out. It is slightly discolored, but NOT dirty. The bathrooms in the home are a little small. I place two bath towels, two wash clothes, and one hand towel in each bathroom. The downstairs bathroom has an additional set-up in the vanity, and the upstairs bedroom has an
additional 7 bath towels, 5 hand towels and 6 wash clothes. Again, I apologize if your stay was anything less than perfect. I emailed you and tried to call two times to check in on you during your stay, but received no response. I did, however receive the following email from your husband though... He seemed to have had a good time:

Hi Mark,
We have enjoyed our stay at your place and a great time. We got here late Wednesday night and the house was easy to find. I will take care of everything on the list. Sorry for the late response. I kept my phone off until tonight trying to avoid the office. Thanks for a great stay! Jason

Absolutely Wonderful - Nov 22 - 27, 2011

The Cottage in the Woods-Shulls Mill Area greatly exceeded my expectations. What a wonderful place! Nestled in the woods, the cottage was quiet and peaceful, yet Boone and Blowing Rock were minutes away. The cottage had every amenity we could possibly want and at every corner we were pleasantly surprised. The owner is so nice and such a pleasure to work with. We are looking forward to staying at the cottage again and again!

July Trip up from Florida

Spent 4 nights with my daughter and wife visiting Boone and surrounding areas. The cabin was great! We had everything we needed including necessary items to cook on site vs eating out every night. I did grill some chicken one evening and would suggest replacing the grill, we were still able to get it done.
One thing to know is that just a mile or so away is a hike to Hebron Falls and until we hiked over there on our last day, didn't realize how beautiful! I would have spent more time there had I known sooner.
Anyway - the home is very clean, very comfortable and Mark was great as far as handling the details of billing and such, he also called while we were there to check in - nice touch.
An avid roadie, I brought my road bike along and didn't realize the cabin is up a gravel road so that is only an issue if you ride a road bike because you will have to shuttle about a mile or so to a paved road...not an issue if you're a mountain biker!
The location works well as you can easily get to Blowing Rock in one direction and easily get to Boone, Banner Elk and Grandfather Mountain in the opposite direction.
A great value for the amenities - Highly recommend!
