Bailey Camp Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms with large loft / 2 full bathrooms / Gameroom / sleeps up to 8

Just 3 miles outside of Blowing Rock, nestled in a bowl, sits A Cabin in the Woods. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath cedar log cabin with vaulted ceiling & spacious loft has a gameroom with ping pong & foosball, gas log fireplace, jetted bath, & much more. Relax on the covered porch & listen to the creek, while you soak up the solitude on this 22 acre tract of wooded forest, or take a hike on the trails & investigate the mountains & streams in your own private little park. An interesting mix of rustic & modern, you will be sure to enjoy the log cabin feel, while enjoying all the modern conveniences.

You'll be pleasantly surprised at the abundance of activities throughout the year. Located just minutes away, you will find Blowing Rock, which offers some of the finest dining, unique shops, & beautiful parks with tennis courts, playground, and riding stables. Located outside of Blowing Rock on your way to Boone, is the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway and longtime favorite, Tweetsie Railroad.

Surrounding Area: With its many overlooks, picnic areas, and hiking trails, cruising the Blueridge Parkway is a popular way to spend your day. Boone enjoys many year round cultural events sponsored by Appalachian State University. Take State Road 105 out towards Linville to find one of the most unique biospheres in the world, Grandfather Mountain. You can hike, see native animals, and walk across the mile high swinging bridge. Everything from skiing to white water rafting is within close proximity to A Cabin in the Woods.

Local Skiing: A Cabin in the Woods is located within an hour's drive to Beech Mtn., Sugar Mtn, and Appalachian Ski Mtn. Our favorite, Appalachian is only 5.3 miles from the cabin. Very family friendly with great Swiss Ski Instructors.

About Beth Vonnegut

My husband and I lived in the Florida Keys, but had been coming up to the mountains each summer to hike. Each time we came up, it seemed like we stayed longer and longer! We began looking for property, thinking that we would like to have a summer home. After a few years, we found a beautiful 22 acre piece of property just outside of the town of Blowing Rock and built a log cabin. We have since then moved up here to the nearby city of Lenoir. We love the four seasons and all of the different activities that each season offers. Our cabin is nestled in the woods and gives us a feeling of calm serenity.

Beth Vonnegut purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Beth Vonnegut chose North Carolina

We chose to purchase a vacation rental in this location because of the many and varied, wonderful activities that this area has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This has been the best vacation we've ever had! We love the cabin and everything it has to offer. The kids learned so much here and had so much fun doing it, we have memories from here that are priceless! Thank you for sharing your cabin. I wish I could tell you our favorite part, but everyday was as good or better than the day before.

Fall Colors with Lady Bugs

  • 5 of 5

The very secluded cabin was great. Glass window view was awesome. Moon light at night great, sunshine in the morning was perfect. Woke up in the morning with deer down in the hollow by the creek. Heard turkey down calling down by the creek. Lady bugs every where! Great fire pit and downstairs games for the whole crew. Excellent cabin, can't wait to stay again.

Exactly as described!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving break at the Cabin in the Woods. It had all we needed! The stream was a huge hit with our dogs and kids. We were able to wear them all out without even leaving the cabin grounds. We will be returning again!!

Cozy Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family LOVED this cabin! It was so nice to spend time with our 4 children playing games, exploring the woods and cuddling by the fire. We had some serious games of foosball and ping pong and will have to go back again for a rematch! :) The cabin was clean and cozy and had everything we needed. And Beth was great! She answered all my questions and was so helpful.

Clean, Cozy and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our 2 dogs enjoyed a very relaxing long weekend at the cabin. Upon arriving we found the cabin to be very clean, cozy and ready for us to settle in. It certainly was secluded and the property was beautiful! Our dogs loved running around the property and we spent a lot of time sitting on the porch enjoying the peace and tranquility and listening to the creek. We left at the end of the weekend feeling refreshed and relaxed. I would highly recommend this cabin and I know that we will be visiting again soon!

Our new spot...

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful, secluded. The images are accurate. We had a lovely stay and would definitely return and recommend this cabin to our friends and family. The owners are responsive and easy to work with. The location is very convenient to Blowing Rock. We absolutely LOVED our stay and it was PERFECT for our anniversary get away. That being said, if you are considering this cabin for your vacation spot, please note a few things to consider to help set your expectations off right. (1) If you are traveling in from out of town, plan on arriving during the day. The directions are accurate; however, there are no road signs and the entries are not lit, so finding the turn in off 321 at night can definitely be challenging. Our GPS was not a big help given it kept taking us to another turnoff (Don't go down Ivan's Way, little scary!). We got there, but arriving in the daylight would have definitely saved us some turnarounds. (2) Recommend an all wheel drive vehicle. We flew in and rented a car. All the information stated no special requirements for vehicle passage. The car rental was running low on vehicles, so just happened to upgrade us. I am not saying that we could not have made a 2 wheel drive work, but I was VERY thankful we did not have to attempt it. The drive is very steep, narrow with some challenging turns--for those who are frequents of driving this terrain, it is probably a breeze. If snow or ice, I would recommend parking at the top and walking down. It is a bit of a hike, but better than getting stuck! (3) If you are packing a full house and planning on a lot of cooking, the kitchen is a bit small and maneuvering the refrigerator is awkward. It is a stocked kitchen with all the important basics and was perfect for 2-4 people. If you are planning a larger group, take full advantage of the grill and try to minimize your kitchen activities. Hopefully none of these items deter your decision to stay at the Cabin in the Woods. It is a beautiful place with lots of trails and we cannot wait to go back!!!
