This cabin is centrally located for visiting Blowing Rock, Boone, Lenoir & Leatherwood, plus many NC waterfalls, parks, hiking, biking and many other activities! Your own home away from home cabin to come home to from a day of sight-seeing!
This home is a joy for families & pets alike! Spacious & homey, with pine paneling throughout. Parents with small children LOVE the deck, as do dog owners.
The Cabin is situated in the Deer Crossing Community, just off of state road Sampson, on Little White Rock Mountain. Rain or shine, the views from the cabin are incredible, in the fall or when the mist moves over the treetops.
The distance from the home to the Blue Ridge Parkway is 7 mi, 9 mi to Blowing Rock, 13.5 miles to Boone, 13.5 mi to App Skiing, 13.1 miles to Kilwins for ice cream, 15.5 miles to great food at Daniel Boone Inn and a visit to App State, Mystery Hill 13.5, Tanger Outlets shopping 12.2, 6.1 miles to horseback riding or fly fishing at Leatherwood (Ferguson)!
Our guests do spelunking at Linville Caverns, hike & boat at Julian Price Lake along the Parkway, white water raft at Wahoo, bike on Railroad Grade rd then tube at Todd while others do some fly fishing & horseback riding at Leatherwood. Some guests have found Wilson Creek to be well suited for canoeing and hiking. There are directions to these locations in the binder just inside the home. You can take one of the pages out, go on your adventure then return the page to the binder for the next visitor. The Blue Ridge Parkway area has many Birding sites. One is located at Julian Price Memorial Park and another is located at Elk Knob near Todd. Check out North Carolina Birding Trail org for more info!
There are wonderful long range layered mountain views from the deck, upstairs balcony and from inside the living room.
We have 4 bedrooms, 2 upstairs come with two double beds that share one bathroom, the master and basement bedrooms have a queen bed and ensuite bathroom.
You will enjoy preparing meals in the well equipped kitchen and grilling on the huge gas grill. Everything you need is at hand! For those not helping in the meal preparation, there is WIFI, PC games & loads of things to check out on the internet. If you find something new & different, like looking for precious stones, print the location directions on the printer to take with you. We hear western NC is a fabulous place for that kind of thing. Good luck mining!
Later, watch TV, get on the internet or watch a movie. For that romantic touch, turn on the fireplace with the remote, watch the flames & pulsating embers, while enjoying the long range layered mountain views.
After a day of hiking, you may want to wash your duds, then play a rousing game of Pool or Foosball. For the family that enjoys various activities, we have 3 DVD players, 2 TVs, & a large basement with space for games. Some of the guests have named the basement 'The Kid Zone'.
The home is great for reading & relaxing. It is so quiet & peaceful. Or just sit & do nothing on one of the 4 swings on the covered & gated, wrap around deck. So many things to enjoy!
This lovely home has features for everyone! Fabulous views, wonderful breezes with a balcony for each upstairs bedroom. The home is very welcoming, decorated with horse prints, photos of Italy & includes some of the photography of a local artist Margaret Denny. We have several antiques in the home that you will enjoy. The antique dining table has several leaves, allowing it to seat 1-8 comfortably. Check out the coffee table, read the inside! There is also an antique book that is fun to page through.
Outside the home, you'll find a reflection bench, a swing surrounded by daffodils in season with long range views. The pond has a soothing waterfall. There is a fenced dog run for your favorite pooches, but can accommodate 2 horses (that get along well).
Bring your cycling, canoeing or fishing gear, the pull through drive way accommodates 5 or more cars, or car & trailer (motorcycle, canoe, horse or 4 wheeler).
There are multiple bird feeders next to the home, come watch the birds! A small supply of bird seed is provided in a black can on the deck, or bring your own. We also have sugar to make food for the two Hummingbird feeders (during the summer)!
This secluded home has irises, daffodils, mountain laurel & rhododendrons. The night time views are spectacular, with the stars so close you think you can touch them. We have a star book to help you identify constellations, plus a pair of binoculars.
Use the drive to the home to enjoy the beautiful scenery, look for wild turkeys & expect deer to be munching along the road. During the recent rains, a waterfall has appeared along Sampson, so look to see if there is water there. Have the kids count the craggy rock locations. Just off the parkway, the kids will enjoy Tow-Mater in Coffeytown. It's fun to see that character where you'd never expect it!
You will love your day trip to laid back Blowing Rock, Kilwins ice cream shop is a must do, as is Tweetsie for the kids. Boone is famous for App state & Mast General Store, plus, Daniel Boone! They say the food at Daniel Boone Inn is terrific! We like to stop in at Earth Fare for organic or other health foods. Don't worry, buy what you want & protect it in one of the Styrofoam coolers. Or, take one with you on a day trip to keep sandwiches & drinks cool.
There are guide books at the home to find the less-traveled hiking paths along the Blue Ridge Parkway and the locations of waterfalls in the area.
This is truly THE place to unplug from the hustle and bustle of life! Just you & nature & your loved ones!
We have granite countertops now, hardwood flooring, new carpeting & flooring in the basement. You and your party are very important to us, so we try to make the home comfy & inviting with everything you need!
My husband is an avid cyclist and I love to ride my paint horse. We love our family and friends and love to entertain them and have fun! This is a vacation home, our main residence is in Pleasant Garden, NC.
We were relocated to NC from Illinois, where we both grew up. I'm originally from Sandy Springs GA. We met over a pitcher of beer after a softball game and have been together now for over 24 years. My husband is so much fun to be with and we love it here in NC. My son and his wife live in Oregon, Wisconsin, a very long distance for a mom to endure! We love our visitors and will go to the nth degree to make your stay wonderful!
We chose this property because it accommodated both our interests! For my husband, the proximity to the Blue Ridge Parkway and all the cycling opportunities it offered, the cooler temps of the mountains and the ability to keep my horse at the property and sometimes trailer the 6.1 miles to Leatherwood for a day of riding. Plus we really love the mountain area. The photo shown here is of a day trip we took to Elk Knob. Elk Knob has a 1.9 mile hiking path to the heavens with heavenly views!
The biggest benefit of this home is that it is very quiet. It has wonderful mountain views, is spacious enough for the whole family so that everyone can do what they please without impacting the others. Proximity to Leatherwood is a real plus! 10$ and a coggins gets you a full day of trail riding! Another sensational feature of the home is the gated wrap around deck. There are 4 swings that allow you to take in the views, the breezes and the pond with waterfall. A favorite is the upstairs bedrooms with private decking. Sit and read or gaze out at the long range views from the back bedroom, or listen to the waterfall below from the front bedroom. The main floor master has access to the deck and has an ensuite bathroom. The basement bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, yet is private. Home includes washer and dryer. The views can be shared from the living room with a french door leading to the deck. With all the windows open, there is rarely a day you need to turn on the AC, but it is at the ready. The home has a wonderful wood stove in the basement and a wall heater, plus an extra refrigerator for those times you have guests for meals. The fenced in paddock will accommodate a horse or your favorite pooch! Also, featuring photography and music by VividPeace.com (Margaret Denny and Jim Pearson) See their site for photos.
