BROWN BEAR RETREAT - 5 BEDROOMS, TWO FIREPLACES, VIEW & HOTTUB

Boone Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Come across the walkway on to the front porch with five rocking chairs, open the door and the first thing you notice through the doors at the end of the family room is the view. The magnificent 180 degrees of layered blue mountains is exactly what you would hope to see in a mountain home. You will be drawn to pass through the great room on to the expansive upper deck to marvel at the view before you even begin to examine the house which is another wonderful experience.

Main Floor Once back into the great room you will notice the 20 foot ceiling with tongue and groove southern pine. The centerpiece of the room is a floor to ceiling stacked stone fireplace with gas logs. In addition to the great room there are two bedrooms, dining room and kitchen on this floor. Like the great room the master bedroom also has a 20 foot ceiling with double doors going out to the deck. The expansive bathroom has two separate granite counter top sinks, a glass enclosed tile shower with two heads and a whirlpool tub. The other bedroom on this floor has beamed ceilings, a queen sized bed and its own bathroom with a shower. The dining room table seats eight and there are three bar stools at one of the two granite islands. This is a kitchen any chief would love to cook and entertain in. There is an abundance of counter space, and the well stocked kitchen has all the cookware, appliances, and serving pieces needed to prepare the finest of meals. There is additional seating for eight on the deck.

Upper Floor The upper floor has a beautiful bedroom with a king size bed. There is an antique desk in front of the dormer window with long range views should anyone need to do work on their computer. A sitting room in the loft with a spectacular expanse of view separates the second bedroom on this level which has twin beds with a kids motif. There is a pack and play available as well as other baby needs.

Lower Level The lower level is also magnificent with 11 foot beamed ceilings with its own floor to ceiling stacked stone wood burning fireplace. The fifth bedroom which is on this floor has a queen sized bed and opens to the lower deck. The large family room opens to its own private kitchen with coffee, dishwasher and refrigerator. There is a walk in wine cellar to store all the wine you have brought with you as well as a jacuzzi hot tub to drink the wine with amazing views of the sun setting over the mountains.

Decks and porches. The house has over 1200 feet of deck and porch space to truly enjoy an outdoor experience. There is plenty of high quality furniture to eat and relax on. A gas grill is available and there is a large jacuzzi hot tub to relax and gaze at the clear starlit nights. You can see the sun rise from the front deck and set in the back.

Our Holiday rates are slightly higher than posted.

We always wanted to build a log home,and when you see this house we hope you will appreciate the time and effort we spent planning, designing and furnishing it. Its a two hour drive from our home in Charlotte, which makes it very accessible for a weekend getaway. It's a wonderful retreat.

Exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway, hiking along hundreds of miles of trails, fly fishing,shoping in nearby Boone, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk. The area has a multitude of really good restaurants. Football games at ASU in the fall are not to be missed. Craft fairs, art shows, plays and concerts abound throughout the surrounding towns and countryside throughout the summer and fall. When cold weather arrives sitting in front of the fireplace reading a book, or for the adventurous skiing at three nearby slopes. The changing of the seasons, especially spring and fall are dramatic. This is truly a four season area, with unlimited adventures awaiting its visitors.

We stayed a weekend at Brown Bear and loved it. It is an amazing house. We went with a group of friends and our kids (ages 2-6). The hot tub was awesome. We want to make it am annual trip and would most certainly chose Brown Bear again

We took our children and grandchildren (12 of us) to Boone for a long weekend to snow tube, etc. Brown Bear had everything we needed! It is such a beautiful house with outstanding views. It snowed and the roads froze every night but were cleared first thing each morning so we were not stuck there which was a big plus. The house is laid out very nicely and there was plenty of room for a multi-generational family like ours with lots of comfortable furniture. Very close to stores and restaurants also. We will certainly be back! Thank you for a great weekend!

Beautiful House for Large Family Gatherings!

My extended family gathered from 3 states to meet at Brown Bear over the Christmas holiday. There was ample room for all of us, and our favorite thing was the glorious open kitchen with two large islands. My family members are all foodies, so we enjoyed cooking together and eating at the long dining room table, as well as playing games in the extra downstairs living area. The house was decorated for Christmas, so all we had to do was bring our gifts. Best of all, we were just minutes away from the grocery stores and movie theatres of Boone. This is a lovely property, with beautiful veiws of the surrounding blue ridge mountatins. We recommend it highly to others who want a special mountain getaway.

Perfect House

I stayed in this house with my parents and 10 of my friends for a long weekend in February for my birthday. When you walk into the house it is breath taking! The interior is beautiful and the wooded walls and high ceilings really make you feel like you are in the mountains. The location is so easy to get to! You don't have to drive up the side of a mountain and you still have INCREDIBLE views. The house has plenty of space. The kitchen (with 2 ISLANDS) had PLENTY of room to be filled with food for everyone. Also, you are only 10 minutes from Boone, 5 minutes from a grocery store, and 20 minutes from sugar mountain!! I would recommend this house to anyone. I don't know why you would want to stay anywhere else because it has absolutely everything. I hope to come back some time soon.

Stunning, comfy and luxurious

Brown Bear lodge now ranks as one of my family's favorite spots in the US. Our group consisted of different generations, and everyone had something to do and their own comfortable space to do it in. The grandparents appreciated the luxuriously appointed room on the first floor, the kiddies loved the bunk beds, and the master suite for the grown-ups were awesome. The view is great. In short, the cabin is finely decorated, the kitchen is modern and fully equipped, everything was spotlessly clean...wonderful. I would highly recommend it.
