Idle Spur Cabin at Leatherwood Mountains is a beautiful rental cabin located in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Boone and Blowing Rock, NC. Leatherwood Mountains is a private, gated comuunity well known to horse lovers as one of the premier equestrian resorts in the Southeast. At our cabin you will find peace and quiet, jaw-dropping panoramic mountain views from our rocking chair deck, a premier equine facility, miles of horse and hiking trails, fishing, creeks, along with swimming and tennis.
Sit in the outdoor hot-tub while you sip your favorite beverage and enjoy the beautiful sunset mountain views of Grandfather Mountain (you can even see the swinging bridge on a clear day), Blowing Rock, Boone, and Deep Gap. Enjoy the LACK of noise, crowds, or pretensions. Bring your own horses and ride the trails! You can also rent horses as well. 'Civilization' is 30 minutes away (Boone, Blowing Rock, Wilkesboro, and Lenoir, North Carolina). Once you visit and enjoy the cool mountain breeze you will not want to leave!
We built this cabin on a dream with little money and a lot of sweat-equity.....in the days when Leatherwood had no bans against noise on the weekends! Started the foundation in May, 1993 and finished in December, 1993! Truly a labor of love! We have pictures of this process in a photo book on the coffee table. Our cabin holds so many precious memories for our family and friends. You'll be hard pressed to find a better view as you sit on our deck---the reason the original developer ear-marked this property as his own. Peaceful, charming, gorgeous views....all tucked away in privacy. Come enjoy our labor-of-love.....and leave your worries behind!
