About the property

Log Cabin - 4 Bedrooms + Sleeper Sofa bed - 3 Baths - (Sleeps 8-10)

Air conditioning (A/C) was just installed in March of 2017 in case we have another heat wave this year.

Unwind and enjoy the wonderful views while rocking on the covered wrap around deck. You can also take in the views while relaxing in the hot tub, then warm up in front front of the cozy wood-burning fireplace in the family room. The kitchen has been stocked with everything you need, whether you're preparing a large group meal or a romantic dinner for two. Take in those great views from the dining table while you eat!

The cabin features a 60' Plasma big screen TV with Blue Ray/DVD player in the basement/rec room. Plus each bedroom has a 40" Flat Panel LED Smart TV's and another one in the family room. I also have three other DVD players setup with some of the TV's. Free secure internet access is available for your laptops and mobile devices.

Snuggle up with your favorite book on the upper level loft (and maybe catch a nap) in a cozy overstuffed chair or just sit back, relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the Blue Ridge Mountains in this tastefully decorated Log Cabin.

Experience: Whether you want a weekend getaway or an extended stay, tranquility and/or excitement can be found here. At an elevation close to 4000 feet the temperature rarely get's above 80 degrees, but we do have air conditioning if needed, so come beat the heat or visit in the winter and enjoy the snow activities.

Most of all come experience why our guests return time and time again to our High Country Hide-Away.

Nearby Area Attractions: Hike to the highest peak in the Blue Ridge Mountains or drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway, which un-spools like a ribbon along the ridge lines of the Appalachians in the North Carolina High Country. The region’s largest town is Boone, which is home to Appalachian State University and its three-time division I-AA national champion football team. The area offers ample opportunities for enjoying the outdoors by hiking, zip line, canoeing, whitewater rafting, skiing, and even picnicking! Heritage and culture are portrayed in a myriad of musical offerings, events, and attractions like Horn in the West, the Music Fest in Sugar Grove, Tweetsie Railroad, the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games, Merle Fest, Concerts on the Lawn, square dances at the Todd Mercantile, and back-porch bluegrass jams at the Original Mast Store in Valle Crucis

About Ken Bloch

For the last 21 years I have been a full-time Realtor, currently with Keller Williams Realty in Charlotte, NC. Specializing in the Lake Norman area about 20 miles north of Charlotte. Over the years I have learn location, location location are the 3 most important words in real estate. I strongly feel that I have a great central location to all the activities you will want to do on your visit to the High Country. Come spend sometime at my cabin and find out for yourself!

Ken Bloch purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Ken Bloch chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

Being a Realtor I know that LOCATION is key when buying Real Estate. I spent several years looking for the perfect cabin in the perfect location and I finally found it. The Crystal Mountain neighborhood is well hidden but easy to get to yet it's conveniently located 6-7 miles from Blowing Rock, Boone, Valle Crucis (home of the Original Mast General Store) and many other nearby amenities including Boone Golf Course, which is open to the public, numerous great places to hike, Grandfather Mountain, Tweetsie Railroad, and Banner Elk.

What makes this cabin unique

Peace and quite, beautiful views, nature (a good chance you will see deer or turkeys) all of the great amenities I have added to the cabin including pool table, hot tub, 60 inch Plasma TV to watch your favorite sports team or Blue Ray for movies. Plus each bedroom has a 40" Flat Panel LED Smart TV's and another one in the family room. I also have three other DVD players setup with some of the TV's. You won't be roughing it here.

Great property, great location

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 6 nights with 3 grandchildren at Ken and Lisa`s property. Cabin was found to be very clean and well maintained. The cabin was as pictured, road was well maintained and not difficult. Location was right off Blue Ridge Parkway almost between Boone and Blowing Rock. Correspondence with owners was great as is with all HomeAway experiences I have had. Directions were easy to follow and local information provided was very helpful. Hope to rent again when possible.

We stay every year up in the mountain. It's a long drive for us since we live in Florida. We were glad to stay here, this cabin was roomy and private since it's gated. You can tell Ken pays alot of attention to detail and does a great job communicating with you. We loved that everything is a short drive away. It is right in the middle of every thing. Short drive to the falls, the caves, skiing and the city of boone. Thanks again Ken for sharing your cabin with us.
