Bedrooms 3
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

Mountain View Log Cabin, Woods, Hot Tub, Fireplace - 3 Bedroom/3 Bath (Sleeps 6)

In search of a beautiful, quiet mountain log cabin, private yet close to everything? You will find all this and more waiting just 'Around the Bend'.

Around the Bend Cabin, constructed with authentic western red cedar logs, features cathedral ceilings and a stone fireplace inside, and a wrap-around porch to take in the view of the surrounding mountains & woods outside. Sharing a private road with only two other cabins, the prime Valle Crucis location is just minutes from most attractions.

Our sunny cabin features three bedrooms plus a children’s loft and three bathrooms. The master suite, has a king bed and a bathroom with Jacuzzi tub. Children love the loft area, with their own TV, where they can play games on the Gamecube, or unfold the sleeper and take in a movie. The main level has two additional bedrooms, one with queen bed and private bath with a walk-in shower; the second bedroom with two twin beds. The third bathroom is located on this level as well.

Step outside onto the wraparound porch, the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee, or take a moonlight dip in the hot tub. Go hiking on the property's wooded acreage, then relax inside while you snuggle into the sofa and recliners, and enjoy our HDTV. There are 4 cable TV's, and VHS and DVD players as well. Bring your laptops & gadgets and take advantage of the high speed wireless internet!

The open floor plan of the main level is perfect for family interaction, and the large windows and cathedral ceilings keep our home bright and sunny. There are toys, games, books and video's for the whole family to enjoy. Take the chill off in winter with a crackling fire in the stone fireplace. The cabin is centrally heated as well.

If you enjoy cooking, then you will find our kitchen fully stocked with all modern appliances including a dishwasher. The barbeque chef of the family will want to throw some steaks on the gas grill. Our cabin comes with fresh linens, towels and toiletries. You will feel pampered by our fluffy, hypo-allergenic pillowtops on all new mattresses. We also accommodate you with a brand new washer/dryer. In the winter months we provide firewood, and, though it's not needed too much in our cool mountain elevation, you may enjoy our central air conditioning on a warm summer day.

When you are ready to leave the comforts of our cozy log cabin, you will find the famous Mast General Store less than 2 miles away! Within minutes are Boone, Blowing Rock, Tweetsie Railroad, ASU, the Blue Ridge Parkway, four ski resorts and countless other attractions. Conveniently, supermarkets and restaurants are very close. Golfers, bring your clubs; the Willow Valley course is just 1 mile down the road. Fishing is just a short walk or drive to the Watauga River. The wonderful thing about our cabin is the privacy, and yet you are just 3 miles from downtown Boone.

We strive to keep our cabin hypo-allergenic, and do not allow pets or smoking anywhere on the property, sorry.

Around the Bend has paved access all the way to the cabin driveway. While we are about 3000 ft. up, 4-wheel drive is not needed here, even in winter! So come, relax, and experience a little bit of’s all just “Around the Bend!” ^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^

REGULAR RATES: $135 to $185. HOLIDAYS: 5-7 NIGHT MINIMUM unless there is a gap in calendar. For Holidays, large families, or cabin sharing, rates may be higher. SORRY NO PETS/NO SMOKING anywhere on the property.


2 NIGHT RESERVATIONS are NOT ACCEPTED UNLESS IT'S THE SAME WEEK! We accept credit cards w/ PayPal, Bank Transfers, checks. Add tax, cleaning fee, refundable security deposit. Additional guest fee may apply.

Dear Russotto Family,

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! This is our first getaway for the two of us since our son was born 2 years ago. We are enjoying everything, especially the fireplace and the hot tub! We've had great food too! Our favorites included Creekside Deli, Roca's Antler Bar in Blowing Rock, and Daniel Boone Inn. Thanks for making our "getaway" relaxing and fun. Wishing you God's richest blessings,

Nicole & Kevin Davis

Amazing location for a girl's weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed at this lovely, lovely cabin the first weekend of December 2016. We wanted a rustic, lowkey location in the mountains adjacent to the great vineyards of Banner Elk and surrounding area. We had the most amazing time in Around the Bend. It has everything you need - fireplace, fully stocked kitchen, deck, seclusion, hot tub, and LOCATION. Carol was a joy to work with and you can tell the family takes a lot of pride in their property. Some highlights from our trip: Grandfather Vineyard, Linville Falls Winery, and Banner Elk Winery were the vineyards we chose and were great. We couldn't go on the Mile High Swinging Bridge due to high winds that day, but I'd suggest doing it if you can. We ate wonderful food at Over Yonder and Vidalia, and cooked in other nights. Overall, this cabin was absolutely perfect.

Everything you need for a weeks stay in the mountains. This is the ideal home in the ideal location. Hot tub, WIFI, firewood and a fully equipped kitchen. Close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Boone, Blowing Rock, and even Damascus Virginia for the riding the Creeper Trail. Had a great time and hope to be back again in the future.

Enjoyable 3 bedroom, close to Boone

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Around the Bend. The cabin is close enough to town to quickly get groceries or find a restaurant. The area is absolutely wonderful for sightseeing, hiking, fishing etc.

The rural setting is just far enough away from town to let you feel like you are in the country.

Owners were very accommodating.

Awesome family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family summer vacation was amazing. Thank you for letting us stay in your cabin. The location was perfect and the house was exactly as described and pictured. The owners are great as well, as my daughter left a stuffed animal that has sentimental value and they quickly shipped it back to us. Thanks again!!

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

My husband myself and 3 other adults rented the cabin for a full week. Had a great time. The cabin is close to lots of shopping, we enjoyed waterfalls, hiking and dining out. Coming home to the cabin for a dinner at home and a relaxing dip in the hot tub was a bonus. Around the Bend is well stocked and furnished. The owners were easy to work with. Loved watching the Hummingbirds come in for a landing on the feeder. Lots of piece and quiet on the deck for a good book or taking in the sounds of nature. We had a great day at Hawks Nest Zip Lining not far away. I really recommend it. Enjoyed our experience hope you do to..
