Boone Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2br 2b , Large Open Kitchen And Family Room With Views Mountain Views F

After shutting down the cabin for a week to make needed changes, I am happy to announce I have a brand new cleaning crew of 3 wonderful competent ladies, and a maintenance man!

Let our elegant mountain top cabin surround you with majestic views, peace and tranquility. The 'Catbird Seat' is our beautiful custom cedar home in exclusive Leatherwood Mountians, 'sitting pretty' on the top of a ridge with 270 degree views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Breathtaking sunsets, morning mists, autumn colors and milky way nights can be seen from the hot tub on the front covered porch.

2BR/2B ; Large Family Room/Kitchen Area, wood floors, tongue and groove walls & Cathedral ceiling make this home very inviting . On cool nights you can sit in front of the gas fireplace and get toasty warm. It's 25,000 BTU's warm up the entire house.

The kitchen has beautiful stone tiles and solid pine cabinets.

Washer/Dryer has it's own niche , behind bi-fold doors.

Master Bedroom has a king size bed and adjoining full bath; Guest room has a Queen bed across the hall from another full bath.

Numerous windows allow natural light to come in, along with views of wildlife and nature.

On almost 5,000 acres and 100 miles of private trails, Leatherwood Mountains is the perfect getaway for trail riders and hikers who enjoy packing a lunch and heading up the mountain to enjoy the rushing water of the creeks, the views, and the serenity.

Horse boarding available; Guided trails rides can be arranged.

Hiking can be done starting right out the front door. There are over 100 miles of hiking trails in this development of 2,000 acres. Also available: Kayaking, rafting, fishing, restaurants.

My husband and I fell in love with horses and mountains on a family vacation to Montana. To get away from the Arizona summer heat, we went every summer.

After my son started college we decided to buy our first horses. What a disaster ! Eventually we did find 2 well broke Tennessee Walkers that we rode in the Arizona mountains, across rivers no less! We were so new to all this, trusting our new friends with their horses , we felt no fear crossing rushing water waist deep. NOW, 20 years later? You would not be able to get me to do that for love or money!

We relocated to the southeast with our 2 horses, dogs, and kitties and set up Morningstar Farms.

Suddenly, finding myself on 40 acres, instead of a postage stamp, my horse collection grew!

We enjoyed 10 years of breeding and raising Tennessee Walkers; getting involved with rescue organizations , and trail riding with friends.

Elizabeth purchased this cabin in 2010

Our dream was to find a place in the mountains with trails right outside our door. Loading up horses in the trailer and driving hours was no longer do-able.

We found our 'Catbird Seat' , as my husband has named our beautiful home on top of the mountain surrounded by nature's beauty.

With retirement still a few years off, we enjoy our cabin on occasional weekends. I want to share the peaceful feeling of these mountains with others. When my guests arrive home after a few days, or week in these tranquil surroundings, they can pass that feeling onto their family and friends. It will make the world a better place.

Beautiful Little Piece of Quiet

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in the Cat Bird Seat over a long weekend for our anniversary. It was absolutely perfect! The cabin is warm and inviting. Liz has lots of amenities set up, including a small library of books, games, and toys to keep people entertained. Not that we used any of it. With a stunning vista on either side of the house, our choices were mainly "grill out while gazing at beautiful mountains" or "sit in the hot tub while gazing at beautiful mountains."

The best part about this cabin is its privacy. It is part of a neighborhood that's wrapped around the mountain. However, it's no cheap camp ground with cabins lined up in a row. They are spread out, and the foliage is dense enough to completely obscure your view of anybody else. We could not see the road from our cabin or our cabin from the road. It was far more secluded than most of the other cabins on the mountain.

At the base of the mountain is a little restaurant and horse ranch. The cabin is not affiliated with them, but they are very friendly and inviting. We wandered around on their trails and rented a couple horses for a tour, and the whole experience was wonderful. The scenery is truly idyllic, with rocky mountain streams babbling around every corner.

We will definitely recommend this place to others. From my limited experience, it's hard to find a rental cabin that isn't part of a cookie cutter chain. This is definitely out of that mold, and for anybody trying to get away from the world for a bit, it's exactly what you need.

Extended weekend trip

  • 4 of 5
Had a nice time during our stay. The cabin is very comfortable with just about everything you need. Nice views from the front and back porch areas. Hot tub is a great feature as well. About a 30 minute drive or so to restaurants/attractions so not bad at all. Overall a nice escape for my wife and I and would recommend to any couples needing a quiet and relaxing trip.

Filth Beyond Belief, this is the formal complaint made on behalf of myself and husband.

  • 1 of 5
Due to the limit of information i can post this is all I am able to provide. But I promise it just kept gett8ing worse and correspondence became verbally abusive, but I will not back down. 50% refund just to be talked down to..... Heed this warning. This home was described as the finest accommodations and elegant, in which this home did not live up to the definition of either of these words. The floors were dirty, and seemed to have not been swept. As well as all carpeted areas of the house. Upon checking the bedding in both the master bedroom and guest bedroom, it became apparent that the bedding in the guest room has not been changed. The linens were littered with hair, dirt and lent. The sheets were also still imprinted into the mattress where it was obvious that someone had recently slept in that bed. The couch and chair in the living room were also stained and very badly soiled. At that time I attempted to contact the person listed in on an informational sheet in the home. I left a message on both her home and cell number and never received a return call from her. I then called the home owner regarding our findings. Because of the time of the evening, I took it upon myself to wash the linens in the guest room since that was the room my 7yr old daughter was to be sleeping. I also proceeded to clean the rest of the house until 1am. All rooms needed to be vacuumed, swept and hardwood and tile surfaces needed to be mopped, however there was no cleaning chemicals to mop the floors with. I did forward pictures to the home owner that evening to show proof of our findings. She emailed me back the next morning apologizing for the condition in the house was found and gave the excuse that her cleaning lady had been having personal issues. She at that time asked for my address so that she could send a partial refund.
At this time we assumed the rest of our stay would go smoothly. However through out the next day the house HVAC system seemed to be having some trouble keeping the house cool. When we checked the room temperature to the set temp. of the thermostat the room temp. was 80, and the thermostat was set to 73. Being a homeowner myself I checked the return air vent to see if there was a blockage present. It was at that time discovered that the filter had not been changed in what I estimated to be months. The filter was caked with dust, dirt, debris, animal hair, moths and other insects. That I had to change myself!!

Owner's Response: I do my best to provide excellent accommodations for my guests.Unfortunately I am at the mercy of the people working for me.I was very appreciative and thankful for the "heads up" my guest gave me and told her repeatedly. I was also horrified that I did not see my housekeeper slipping. I am guilty for not letting her go sooner.
You got me by phone immediately & also called the housekeeper saying you would not "step foot" in the cabin until you knew if there were stains on the furniture. On the AC, I will gladly provide invoices to show the unit was serviced the day before your arrival.Because the housekeeper didn't keep up with her duties, the vent wasn't changed, causing damage to the unit, leaving guest without AC for 12 hours the night before check out.Thankfully it was 62 degrees & breezy that very night.The AC repair man was at the cabin at 8:30 AM to fix the problem. I am guilty for not realizing the microfiber sheets were such a problem! Although they were laundered and clean, every bit of lint from the towels got embedded in the fibers.I thought because of their softness and non staining feature that my guests would like them. But they are not like cotton sheets that look flat & taunt against a mattress pad. I am always looking for ways to improve a guest's stay.When I was notified of the problem of the dirty floor and sheets, I told the guest she would be getting a refund, & asked if there was anything else I could do to make this up to her, she wanted a free day in addition, which I agreed to, not knowing that she was expecting a FULL refund of her 4 day stay. She already got a large Military discount!

All of the communication between the guest & I during her stay was friendly & helpful. If it had been so bad, why didn't they leave the cabin immediately and collect a FULL refund?

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5
"Romantic Getaway!" was just what we were looking for. The home and the setting were perfect for relaxing and unplugging. We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the rocking chairs and the ability to cook a great meal both nights. Also appreciated the ipod sound system- with it's pretty incredible play lists! Enjoyed that especially. We would definetly recomend this home to anyone looking to leave it all behind for a few days! Thank you for the opportunity.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the playlist! That was a project my husband took on a few years ago. When we are relaxing, we like hearing songs from the 50's and 60's..and thinking back to those care free days!

We really enjoyed our stay at this cute cottage. The wide front porch with comfy rocking chairs to the inviting hot tub were so nice to be in while looking out over the mountain view was absolutely gorgeous. The bed was comfortable and the cottage it self was warm and inviting. I would recommend this if you are wanting seclusion, peace and quiet. Looking forward to coming back and taking a hike or two and a possible horse trail ride.

Owner's Response: Greg & Stacey,
Thank you for your lovely review. You will enjoy the trail riding here whether you have a horse to bring, or rent one from the barn. The horses here are so well trained, you will have a delightful time seeing scenery that you cannot see otherwise, and having lunch on a mountain ridge with the riders from your group.
Looking forward to hearing from you in the near future!

The cabin is truly beautiful, but when we arrived the cabin had not been cleaned yet and the cleaning lady did not show up until that night. After driving all night to get to this cabin when we arrived we wanted to take a nap, so we had to clean the cabin ourselves. The guest that stayed before us had a dog and hair was everywhere. We tried calling the owners and the manager multiple times to try to get help with this issue and no one ever returned our call. We did enjoy our stay and the cabin had everything we needed.

Owner's Response: Victoria,
I was happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay despite the terrible scheduling mix up!
As I recall, I received your call immediately ( I was home that night,)
and we spoke on the phone. There was no prior message.? I was able to remedy the situation quickly and do recall that the housekeeper did have the
cabin cleaned up within 90 min of your arrival,
And you received a refund for that night.
Unfortunately things do not always go smoothly; illnesses , unexpected emergencies, not too mention family tragedies.
We are not immune to these things because I am a private individual, not a "hotel' with employees that are available on the premises 24/7.

I will state confidently that I will attend to any calamity as soon as I am made aware, and fix it to my ability..and then some.
