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.

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

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.

WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME!

  • 5 of 5
The Gathering Place certainly was the best place for 6 cousins to spend a few days together catching up, laughing and eating. The cabin was so comfortable that I started referring to it as 'home' during this vacation. It was exactly as described. It was secure, clean, quiet (when 6 of us weren't talking at the same time), close to a grocery store, and the owners were just a phone call away if we ever needed them. A very pleasant vacation.

Owner's Response: Peggy: what a great review . Much appreciated. Glad you cousins had a great time. No better place for six cousins to enjoy the quiet and tranquility of our mountain home.. I am sure y:all enjoyed each other, just as I do when i spend time with all my cousins. At our age it so much fun getting together and just sharing all the latest about our children and grand children.
Truly our cabin does feel like home away from home with the warmth and love that has filled each room with all our guest that have visited.

Please know you cousins are always welcome. You cousins have a great summer and stay in touch.

Blessings

EVERYTHING WE EXPECTED - AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5
The Gathering Place was everything we expected and then some! Sometimes it is hard to tell about a property based on the photos but this cozy little cabin did not disappoint in any way. It is remote enough to be "away from it all", but still within convenient driving distance of Boone and West Jefferson, NC for shopping, meals, and groceries. The free unlimited long distance phone service with phones throughout the cabin is a nice amenity, as is the free WiFi. One feature we really liked was the near proximity to the Blue Ridge Parkway. We enjoyed preparing some meals in the well-equipped kitchen and went out for others. Our favorite dining venues were the Daniel Boone Inn and Macado's in Boone. You will NOT go away hungry from either place. The Madison Mud Pie at Macados is not to be missed! Order one and ask for a spoon for everyone at the table. It is HUGE! All in all, very pleased with our stay and looking forward to a repeat sometime in the (hopefully) not too distant future! ~Ed and Melissa

Owner's Response: Ed & Melissa:

Thanks for the great review for Thee gathering Place. We much appreciate the kind remarks.
Glad everyone had a great time. , and enjoyed their stay. Yes: our cabin is very close in distance to the Blue ride pwky., less than a mile.

The restaurants you mentioned are great places to eat. Another great restaurant to dine at is Shatley Springs, it is great. There are great restaurants and shopping just a short distance from our cabin.. , which y:all found. However we try to make sure that our kitchen is well equipped for our guest that like to cook, and enjoy eating out on the deck or the front porch, which I think y:all did .

Yes : Cell phones do not always work on the mountain, that is why we have unlimited long distance for our guest. and wi . These things are important to our guest.

Sorry about the a/c unit. Thanks for being patient with us. It has been fixed and cooling well.

Just know y"all are always welcome at Thee gathering Place.

WONDERFUL CABIN, EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this beautiful home to accommodate my nieces and nephews for a family weekend. They and their children fell in love with the place! We had so much fun playing games on the deck, grilling and making s'mores. It had everything we needed, including lots to do for the kids. They all asked "when can we come back again?" Close to all, easy to get to, and lots of room to relax and enjoy. I will come again soon. Highly recommend this home! Thanks Peggy!

This cabin was very clean . We had about 10 people that stayed with us for an App State graduation. We had plenty of room and had no problems with showers or places to sleep! We grilled out and played cornhole . It was a great place to just relax and have an awesome time. I had left some clothing and jewerly up there and Dana the clean up lady met me out there at 8 am one morning in the pouring down rain to pick it up. Everything was there and she was so sweet to take time out of her day to do that for me. Couldn't ask for a better place to vacation! Great Cabin and Great People to Rent From!!! Thanks Peggy and Dana!!!!
