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 Bailey Camp

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

There are puzzles, books, flat screened tv with a variety of DVD's and various other games in the bookcase next to the ping pong table. Plenty to do on those rainy days!

                                                                Fall Colors with Lady Bugs

                                                                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.

                                                                A great secluded get away!

                                                                We had a really enjoyable thanksgiving getaway with our two sons who are away at college. We spent the daylight hours exploring the many sights nearby, and our nights were spent around the awesome fire pit outside. They have everything you could ever need. The house was clean and well kept. We would highly recommend this house to anyone!!

                                                                Oh, and for those concerned about the review left about the driveway. We made multiple daily trips up and down the driveway in our cars. No problem on any of them, take your time and you will be fine.

                                                                Great property as described

                                                                Norman W.

                                                                The property was as described, which we appreciated. Totally secluded, but only 5 minutes to Blowing Rock. Interior was well maintained. Fire pit and creek were nice bonuses.

                                                                What a great weekend away with friends. The cabin was large enough for 8 of us...plus kids! :) Great location and super quiet...loved waking up in the morning to the fog...thank you!

                                                                A Cabin in the woods is exactly that!

                                                                Wendy S.

                                                                The driveway was a bit difficult to find and first time down & up was a bit intimidating, but each time got better and better. We loved the cabin and it was in a great location for our trip. We would definitely book again if the opportunity arose.

                                                                The cabin is pristine & in an idyllic setting but the road to/from the cabin was harrowing.

                                                                I want to give a 5 star rating because the cabin is truly gorgeous-great spatial layout/super clean & tastefully decorated with lots of fun amenities in a truly beautiful setting. Unfortunately, I can't give a higher rating, because the property description didn't include references to the driving conditions prior to booking. It is only about a quarter of a mile from the main road to the cabin, but it is an extremely steep descent/ascent on a narrow gravel road with multiple hairpin turns & no guardrail. While the trip down was nerve wracking, the ascent was so treacherous (particularly in the rain) that we made a conscious decision to only leave the cabin 1x daily and to return before dark each evening. In the property description, I believe a 4WD vehicle should be recommended (regardless of season) & drivers unfamiliar with mountain driving, should be cautioned about the "switchbacks" and advised not to arrive after dark on the first day. I hate to leave a poor review, because the cabin really was lovely, but unfortunately the drive to the main road hindered our ability to come and go freely throughout the weekend. If you are comfortable with the drive, you will love your time in this beautiful cabin.

                                                                Hi Margaret,

                                                                Thank you for your kind words regarding our cabin. We always love our time there and have tried to make it as comfortable and well-equipped as possible. We are aware that sometimes guests from Florida are a little nervous driving in and out to the cabin. We have provided some techniques in our confirmation letter that make driving on mountain gravel roads a lot easier for our guests. Put your car in low gear, swing wide on the switchbacks, and keep a steady rate. When guests experience problems, we can usually look at the road and see that they have hugged close to the inside turns and gunned it (which means they are spinning on turned tires). We have several family members, along with our cleaning service, who do not have 4wd and have no problems getting in and out. Guests who follow those driving guidelines never have any problems with the road. (Please see our last guest comment.) Our suggestion to you would be to request a property off of a paved road, which will make driving easier and less stressful for you.
