Seven Devils House Rental Photos and Description
Mountain Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8) Excellent Mountain Views

Our second home, Lynn's Mountain Lodge, is a beautifully maintained three bedroom chalet that is a true mountain get-a-way at a 4,500 foot elevation. Enjoy the fresh mountain air, share the quiet joy of a spectacular sunrise or sunset over Grandfather Mountain, and revel in the peace and tranquility of our cozy second home. Enjoy all of the activities available throughout the High Country (all within a 15 mile or less radius) or simply relax and enjoy the solitude of the mountains from this spectacular location.

The home is entered from a front porch into a cozy yet spacious great room with cathedral ceilings (dining room/living room/ kitchen) that is well furnished with mountain d├ęcor and a large Oriental rug. The large wall-to-wall sliding glass doors and cathedral windows along the back side of the house offer panoramic views of the surrounding Appalachian mountains, including Grandfather Mountain. It almost serves to bring the outdoors indoors. During cold nights, guests can enjoy large the gas logs in the stone fireplace in the great room, watch movies, or play games together. On warm nights family and friends can congregate on the oversized deck, enjoy the view, and possibly grill out.

The well-equipped kitchen (where you will find everything you need to whip up a quick dinner or prepare a gourmet feast for your family and friends) and dining room open to the living room, adding to the spaciousness of this large home. This large room also contains access to a washer and dryer which is hidden behind folding doors and a wet bar which is also hidden behind another set of folding doors. The large couch in this room is a queen size sofa sleeper.

Also located on the main floor is the master bedroom, which is beautifully appointed with a queen size bed, a comfortable chaise lounge, and has a dressing area with a walk-in closet and the master bath. Sliding glass doors offer private access to the back deck which stretches for the length of the house. You can lie in bed and look out at Grandfather Mountain.

On the other side of the house are 2 additional bedrooms and another full bathroom. The front bedroom contains an antique double bed and has been dubbed 'the blue room' because of the cozy decor. The back bedroom is charmingly decorated with a full size antique bed and bedroom set and contains a sliding glass door that opens onto the back deck of the house and provides a breathtaking view of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Guests will not be disappointed with the overall charming feel of our home away from home.

I am a retired educator. I taught high school and middle school English and Government 14 years and then became a college professor after earning my doctorate in Education from Baylor University in Waco, Texas (Sic 'Em Bears!!!) (Special shout out to RGIII and Brittany Griner as well!). I then taught students how to become teachers and then taught for the next 15 years at Texas Tech University, Lynchburg College in Virginia, Presbyterian College in South Carolina, and finally here at Appalachian State University. My husband grew up on Seven Devils and attended Appalachian State University and graduate school at NC State University. We live in the Valle Crucis area and are usually available to try to meet your needs.

Dr. Lynn C. Presnell purchased this house in 1986

This home was built by my mother-in-law and my husband lived in the home until he graduated from ASU. When his mother passed away we simply could not bear to part with the property (and all its special memories for us) and decided to turn it into a vacation rental property. By doing so, we can occasionally enjoy the home ourselves and share our love of the area and the fabulous views with others. There is no place quite like life in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The pace is slower, people are kinder, and the views, well, in my opinion they simply restore something gentle and wondrous in your soul. After years of living here I can honestly say that I find a quiet joy in simply enjoying the view as I drive to and from the grocery store.

Our second home is a true oasis that you and your family and/or friends will find homey and simply relaxing. It is close to all of the High Country's various activities...you can virtually get to any part of Boone, Banner Elk, Blowing Rock, Grandfather Mountain, the Blue Ridge Parkway within 20 minutes. One of the great perks about the location of the house is the fabulous view from the deck that extends across the entire back of the house. My husband and I have sat there many a late afternoon and evening and simply soaked in the view while enjoying each others company.

Our stay at Lynn's Lodge was wonderful. They supplied all the little necessities we needed, which was really nice. Our favorite spot was the deck from where we watched wildlife. We actually saw a doe nursing her fawns. It was very quiet while we were there. The home is spacious and beautifully decorated. We had books and movies and games to pick from to entertain us. We hope to return someday again.

Wonderful weekend w/family

We loved staying here! I had been once before w/my girlfriends last year. This time, I was with my parents, brother and sister-in-law and my hubby and two kiddos. Again, it was perfect and we were supplied with more than we needed. I knew not to worry about anything because if I had left it, it would probably be there. My family LOVED Lynn's Cabin. The deck was definitely the highlight because of the view, space and relaxation! The house was cozy, yet spacious for all of us! Since I was there last time, Lynn has added larger beds so that there is room for more people. The location is great because you can get to Boone, Blowing Rock, Sugar Mtn, etc in no time. Again, the house was immaculate when we arrived and we just really felt relaxed after staying here. Thanks Lynn! I will be back w/some girlfriends in a month and a half! We cannot wait!!!!

Girls Weekend in Seven Devils was Amazing Despite All the Rain!

We loved our weekend at Lynn's cabin. The place was immaculate and had everything we needed so we didn't worry about leaving anything at home. This was my first time staying here as well as the other five girls. We are all moms and needed a break away and boy did we get it! The cabin was cozy, but spacious enough for all of us. Despite it raining the whole weekend, we enjoyed the warm fireplace, comfortable beds and found everything we wanted such as shopping and restaurants right close by. We were able to get to Blowing Rock and Boone in little time despite school being in session at ASU and loved just being able to kick back, have some girl talk and relax in a beautiful, cozy home! Thanks Lynn!
We will definitely be back!!!!

I loved my stay at Lynn's and found the helpful photos to prepare me for exactly what to expect. Cute fully furnished bedrooms; every kind of dish and kitchen item we could possibly need as well as DVDs and a full library of books. I came to relax and not do too much; I enjoyed eating every meal and snack out on the deck. But I also loved that I could walk right out the door and do a gentle hike through the woods behind the house when I wanted to get some exercise. THe owners were very nice, knew the local area, recommended some restaurants that were good, and overall very helpful.

This is a great place when you want some peace and quiet and to just work puzzles, watch DVDs, read and relax. I plan to come back next summer for sure.

Restful respite

A friend and I met and spent 4 wonderful days relaxing at Lynn's Mountain Lodge. We explored the surrounding area on foot (lovely walks) and ventured into town for some fun 'charity shops' exploring and found great buys and kind, warm-hearted people. The food in town was pretty fabulous, too. We enjoyed coffee and conversation, as well as dining on the balcony with Grandfather Mountain in full view. It was a wonderful respite and get away from our otherwise very busy lives, and I look forward to a return visit. Soon. I would love to see the fall foliage.....

Beautiful home/ amazing views !!

My husbands, myself and 2 other couples rented this beautiful home for 5 days and couldn't have been more pleased. It was clean, roomy, gorgeous views and close enough to shopping and dining, but far enough away that you felt you had really escaped ;) My only criticism would be to have ceiling fans installed in all bedrooms, not just the master. With no AC, it is a must. Also, the TV in the living room is in desperate need of an upgrade to a flat screen. But overall, it was awesome and we will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We appreciate the wonderful things you said about our home. In response to your concerns, my husband is going to install ceiling fans in the other 2 bedrooms before our next guests arrive on Saturday. We are searching for a HD flat screen that will fit the entertainment center we have. Additionally we also just purchased 2 rocking chairs for the back deck. We are glad you had a good time at the house and we really do hope you come back.
