About management

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 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 naive; We trusted the advice of other horsemen, and had a great time. 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.

management purchased this cabin in 2010

Why management chose Boone

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' on top of the mountain surrounded by nature's beauty. Vacationing in the mountains has always seemed the ultimate in relaxation. In it's casual setting, our cabin is easy to feel relaxed and laid back in.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Peaceful get-away on Leatherwood Mountain

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is beautiful and the view from the front porch is magnificent. I was looking for a quiet and peaceful weekend get-away, and your cabin was the perfect place. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub.... we grilled steaks and seafood on the grill... had a little wine... even danced to some great music provided on an iPod at the cabin. Fantastic! I will definitely recommend this place to others!

Mountain cabin

  • 2 of 5

Beautiful home, very quiet and peaceful. However the cabin needs a good cleaning from top to bottom. Curtains are coated with gray dust. Doors are very dusty.

Awesome few days!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our week up in Leatherwood! It was gorgeous and the place was perfect! It was a nice refuge from our busy lives. We loved spending the evenings in the hot tub and relaxing on the porch. Place was very clean and comforting. The only issue we had was our GPS leading us on some crazy roads to the parkway. If it tells you to take Jake's Mountain Rd., find another route. It's a one lane, dirt road up the mountain hahaha. All in all, a great time! Thanks for the opportunity and God Bless!

Owner's Response: Yes, the GPS information can be very frustrating. One of my guests insisted on using it when checking in and could not understand why they were sent to a "one way" street that was going to shred their tires if they took it! I am very happy to hear you had a wonderful time!

Perfect 25th Wedding Anniversary!!!

  • 5 of 5

I could not have asked for more. My husband and I stayed at the cabin for a week to celebrate our 25th and it was just what the Dr ordered. We had a wonderful time and are already ready to go back. The cabin was so cozy and so nicely decorated. Even the hot tub was crystal clean. We enjoyed the views every minute we could. Dealing with the owner was so smooth. Liz was always so accommodating and patient with all my questions. We can't wait for our next visit.

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.
