Overview

Boone House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Brooks Bend Farm is a quaint farmhouse located in a beautiful North Carolina valley just seven miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway and fifteen minutes to Boone. The house is tucked in a cove on two and one-half acres surrounded by mountains on one thousand feet of a state stocked trout stream which is one of the cleanest in the state. Trout season opens April 7, 2012.

You will have endless entertainment possibilities fishing, swimming, hiking, roasting marshmallows in the fire pit, playing croquet, swinging in the swings, napping in the hammock by the creek or simply relaxing in the front porch rockers as the tranquil sound of the creek soothes your spirits.

If exploring the High Country is high on your priority list, an abundance of local activities is available for your enjoyment. The charming village of Blowing Rock is just an enjoyable twenty minute drive south on the Parkway. Grandfather Mountain, Tweetsie Railroad, North Carolina ski resorts, the Mast General Store , and Moses Cone Estate are all within a few minutes drive as well as restaurants and shopping.

When you have exhausted yourself and your family with outdoor and local activities, come home to the farmhouse where you can enjoy three bedrooms (sleeps six), two and one-half baths all furnished with high quality linens. Cook your favorite meals in the very well-equipped kitchen or outside on the charcoal grill.

Enjoy the many amenities such as two cast iron stoves, whole-house water filtration system, zoned air conditioning and heating, wireless Internet, unlimited long distance calling, HD satellite television with movie channels, CD player and family games and puzzles. Ample parking is provided with easy access. And safety is a priority with new smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors throughout the house.

Make this your next vacation destination. Brooks Bend Farm is our cherished home. Now you can make it yours as well.

Come home to Brooks Bend Farm.

Lovely mountain getaway complete with stream

  • 5 of 5
Our family would definitely recommend Brooks Bend Farm! We spent a great Fall weekend there, and were able to visit Boone and Grandfather Mountain as well. The house is meticulous and comfortable; we especially enjoyed the porches and the lovely yard next to a mountain stream, where we sketched. And our family dog enjoyed her stay as well. We'd recommend this rental to everyone.

The Digh Family

  • 5 of 5
My family absolutely loved this beautiul home. This place has it all and the creek was gorgeous. We probably caught 50 sucker fish, my two little boys "discovered" your waterfall, and we caught a handful of crawdads. The firepit was wonderful and the beds were very comfortable. Can't wait to come back next year. Only 4 miles from turtle mountain preserve. Thanks again.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased that you had such an enjoyable visit at Brooks Bend Farm. Beautiful Elk Creek, which runs the length of the property, is very special as you now know. We had a guest there a week ago who said he wanted to fish while in the area and told a guide he met that there were probably no fish in Elk Creek. The guide told him he was totally wrong, and in fact the state had just stocked the creek (at both ends of our property) the day before. The guest then sat on the large rock in the middle of the creek just beyond the deck and threw corn in the water. He said he was amazed at all the fish that suddenly appeared in a feeding frenzy. Neighbors who fish there have enjoyed trout for dinner! And all the guests enjoy the fire pit beside the creek which we continue to improve each year. It is always interesting to realize that Turtle Island Preserve, home of Eustace Conway, made famous by the television series Mountain Men, is nearby. We do hope you will return again and again. There is always much to enjoy in the entire area around Brooks Bend Farm.

Very relaxing weekend...

  • 5 of 5
LOVE the creek! It's so clean that we could watch the trout swimming around! Love the sound of the water! Love that every single room has a view of the creek! Love the flat, grassy yard for the dogs. Loved that the porch wrapped on two sides of the house so you could always find some shade. The king size bed in the master was very comfortable and the sheets were nice! Everything you could possibly want in a kitchen was there! Very clean. We ate all our meals out on the deck. Wifi was good. TV was sufficient. It was smaller than we are used to but it didn't bother me at all. The proximity to the Parkway, to Boone, and to Blowing Rock was great! Elk Creek Road was fun to drive on. Very windy. It's close to the road but because there are so few cars, you feel like you are the only ones in the world. Very relaxing! Wish we had seen some more wildlife but we did see the trout and a heron that landed in the creek one morning. They even had toilet paper and paper towels there when we arrived. The rocker recliners were comfy and so were the rockers on the front porch. No regrets. Went motorcycle riding on the Parkway one day and horseback riding the next. Always came back by mid afternoon so we could enjoy the farmhouse and the creek.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was amazing!! We hadn't been on vacation as a family in several years and really needed this break from life! It was so quiet and we loved being alongside the beautiful creek! We loved sitting on the porch in the morning and watching the creek, going on hikes, having bon fires, just enjoying the peace and quiet. The home had everything we needed and then some! Beautifully decorated. The owners really thought of everything. It really was perfect. Very highly recommend.

Amazing Christmas!

  • 5 of 5
Thanks to the owners for allowing us to spend a few days in their cozy home . We were planning to go to a place that could offer a peaceful and home-like environment for this Christmas, and we found the right place at this beautiful home. I have to mention the owner called us right after our arrival to make sure we were ok...... that's tell you a lot about how much they care for the guests .
First, let me start disclosing that I am not someone who usually takes the time to write reviews, but after staying at this house I feel I have to. This farmhouse is SO CLEAN and VERY WELL MAINTAINED, and you can easily find ANYTHING you may need if planning to cook.... something you should do, since you really feel you are at home and the open layout of the kitchen- including a small island- is an invitation to spend time fixing something to eat and share.
The rest of the interiors in the house are already very well described by other reviewers, so let me comment on the outdoors: the river along the back porche, the campfire place and barn nearby make of the outdoors a MUST to have a walk, take breathtaking pictures and just BE THERE. Eventhough outside was cold in the 30's, you just feel so peaceful and "disconnected" from the world.....something we were really looking for. Finally, we read some reviewers commenting on the "tricky" road to get to the house from the main avenue, but we actually think it was very fun and exciting - and part of the adventure - to drive through it....very safe to drive, and no need for a 4 wheeler ! like many other places require in the mountains.
We hope to be back in the future.
