Why Richard Wavell chose Newland
This property is spacious with an open floor plan and Cathedral ceilings throughout on the main floor. It has great mountain views off the main and lower decks. The elevation at 4000 ft keeps temperatures cool throughout the summer.

Great value and good location.
Cabin was clean and had everything that we needed. Great views from upper deck. The cabin is a short drive from Banner Elk, Boone and Blowing Rock. We needed a cabin with easy access and a bedroom and bath on the main level. This place was perfect for that. Richard was quick to respond to any questions and concerns that we had.
Great to have you as a guest. Please consider returning next year!
Excellent value, responsive owner, good location
The home was perfect for us (2 adults, 3 kids ages 5-12). Owner was quick to respond. It was my first time using VRBO, so I was concerned about scams. Asked owner for local references, which he provided. Newland is a bit off the beaten path but only a short drive to Boone/Blowing Rock/Banner Elk.
House is easy to find using an iPhone’s map. Well-appointed. TV with satellite. Awesome balcony overlooking sloping, wooded area with mountains in the distance. Plenty of towels/silverware/dishes/etc. Parking right outside the front door.
I will say that Newland is something of a sad, little southern town. I’m from the South and have seen many, so it didn’t really bother us. In addition, the drive up to the cabin takes you past a few shabby trailers, so we had some initial concerns about the area. However, we didn’t have any issues and enjoyed the home, which has nice views of the mountains in the distance.
If you understand what you’re getting (value, central location to all the popular area attractions), I think you’ll be pleased. We were...
I am glad you enjoyed your stay! Just to clarify the TV is cable with Spectrum, as is the 40 MBit/sec wireless connection. To defend Newland a little, although it only has about 700 residents, it is the Avery County seat and has the largest supermarket in the county just down the street. It also houses the county library and courthouse and all county support agencies. There is a free historical museum at the jailhouse. Downtown there is a river walk which has been setup as a park and dog walk at the confluence of several rivers. There are also at least a dozen restaurants in town.
Easy booking and central to our hiking
We booked last minute. It was quick easy and the home was well appointed with all we needed. Close to elk falls. Banner elk Linville and parkway. Clean and comfortable. Would rent again
So glad you enjoyed your stay! Come again next year!
Great View! Very Relaxing.
Great view of the valley from the upper-deck. Stayed here for the long holiday weekend. The Rhododendron's where blooming around the property and looked wonderful. It was a great location so near all the national parks and little towns we wanted to visit. A relaxing getaway tucked away in the cool mountains, looking forward to going back soon.
Glad you enjoyed your visit! Plz come again next year!
