Boone Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths (Sleeps 10}

Family and friends gather together at “Thee Gathering Place.” This home away from home has the warmth and love for everyone to enjoy the peace and quiet of a mountain get-away. The log home is nestled on the back roads of beautiful Ashe County, yet it is year around accessible. There is a lot of room for walking, hiking, bike riding, or four-wheeling. Enjoy rocking and swinging on the front porch…enjoy cooking out on the back deck, overlooking the rim of the Blue Ridge, all while enjoying all the sounds of the birds, crickets, even a wild turkey, or deer stopping by to graze in the yard. On cold nights enjoy the warmth of the gas logs from the stone fireplace, while watching direct TV, surfing the Internet on your lap top, or just talking to a family member back home on the unlimited long distance. (No international calls please.)

Year Purchased: 2007

On the way to West Jefferson, veer off and stop by the famous Todd Store, located in Todd. It’s approximately five miles from the cabin. Spend a summer Friday night listening to mountain Bluegrass music. A different band every Friday night – call the store for weekly band line-up. If you like water sports, you must visit the New River at Todd. The river offers great canoeing, white water rafting, tubing, swimming, or fly fishing. Get out and explore the Blue Ridge…There are some great golf courses in the area, horseback riding, or just sightseeing on the famous Blue Ridge Parkway.

About Owner ralph & Peggy Murray

Living on the south east coast of North Carolina, we have always loved the mountains. Our family vacations have always been either in the Blue Ridge or Great Smokey Mountains. We enjoy traveling through the back roads and stumbling upon the quaint small towns throughout Ashe, Watagua, Wilkes and Avery counties. We are so blessed to have had the opportunity to acquire Thee Gathering Place to continue our family vacations and to share with our guests. We welcome you to our mountain home and pray God's blessings to all who visit Thee Gathering Place - Ralph & Peggy

Owner ralph & Peggy Murray purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Owner ralph & Peggy Murray chose Boone

We chose ashe county, because of the quaint little town of west Jefferson and all that it has to offer, because it is truly a a step back into time with all the things to do and see. It has great places to eat. New river has so much to offer for the entire family.,,canoeing, fishing, tubing, white water rafting, etc. All the back roads to explore, ride bikes, four wheeling, hiking or just looking at all the views. Very relaxed area with out all the noise and a great place to avoid crowds., and enjoy God:s beauty.

Golf course in a beautiful mountain setting.

Lots of area for horse back riding.

Blue Ridge just a few miles away, not to mention the great color in the fall with the cool mountain breezes at night.

Christmas tree farms to choose and cut that perfect tree.

We looked at a lot of counties but Ashe County and West Jefferson are just a great place to call home away from home.

Our cabin is located on one of the beautiful back roads,yet has year around access, very quiet, lots of back roads for hiking, riding bikes or just relaxing on the front porch enjoying the sounds of nature.

25th Reunion with college buddies

  • 5 of 5
This is our second year renting the Gathering Place for our annual reunion with friends from Appalachain State University. This is without a doubt the BEST place we have rented for this event and Peggy Murray is a dream to work with in setting up our plans!

The cabin is delightful and great for our group (this year 4 couples). Plenty of room for all; kitchen well stocked with crock pot and every other appliance you might need. Plenty of dishes.
Bathrooms great; plenty of towels. Washer/dryer great too (we had been traveling for 2 weeks prior to arriving). Great deck and the weather was perfect for sitting outside.

The colors on the trees on the mountain got better each day we were there; it was beautiful.

Our check-out day turned into a semi-disaster for us - our rental car keys got lost (found after one couple got home 2 1/2 hrs after leaving, necessitating a return trip by them). The phone in the cabin was invaluable for that experience trying to figure out what we were going to do etc. Luckily we got out after our friends returned with the keys!!

Peggy was helpful when the TV/dish wasn't fully working when we arrived; it was fixed within an hour.

We will definitely return next year. We'll call Peggy, as soon as we have our dates!!!

Thank you for a beautiful place to unite with our friends.

Leaves really do change colors in 48 Hours

  • 5 of 5
The Gathering Place was just what we needed for a couple days rest for our family of 5. To watch as the kids explored the place and played around the property was memorable. They enjoyed roasting marshmallows around the fire pit and playing cowboys and indians after spending the day at Tweetsie. The location of your cabin allowed us to drive by a couple of beautiful horses which made my wife's stay that much more amazing. She was able to pet them and feed them as they would come to her from across the pasture.

I want to thank you for the ease and simplicity of working with you on our stay. I received many comments from friends who saw wonderful photos posted during our stay. Many of whom have already asked about TGP.

It was amazing to see how the leaves really changed over the two day visit. Looking forward to our next stay at TGP. By the way, it was very easy to find and easy access to Boone and attractions. Cannot say enough.

Thanks

Our October Stay at The Gathering Place

  • of 5
We were absolutely blown away by the Cabin when we arrived. It is incredibly clean & cozy. The landscape and yard has been kept up nice.

Peggy has been so helpful on giving us additional info on the area.
We have 3 children, and we created such great memories here on our stay.

Tonight is our last night here before we check out, and our kids do not want to leave! Thanks for you hospitality Peggy!

We definitely recommend this Cabin to everyone ~ We will be back soon!

Wonderful Cabin

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our mountain vacation and had a wonderful time staying at The Gathering Place. The cabin is very roomy and big. The beds were extremely comfortable. We loved the front porch with the swing. We could hang out there for hours. The showers were great too with plenty of hot water. Cell phone coverage was in and out, but wifi connection was impeccable. Thanks Peggy for everything. We will definitely be back.
