Guestbook comments from the owner


Thanks again for your hospitality, we had a terrific trip! Your cabin was wonderful and extraordinarily well equipped, far exceeding our expectations. It was a Christmas the kids will never forget.

We're already looking at our calendars next year to see when we can return!

Perfect Escape

  • 5 of 5

What a great escape! Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 young children) had a wonderful time staying in this charming, well-stocked and centrally located cabin. The layout was perfect and the home had everything we needed for an easy, relaxing time. Kitchen was great and had everything we could have ever needed to prepare all of our meals and bedrooms were clean and well appointed with plenty of space. The main living area was cozy and we enjoyed the fireplace in the evening to wind down. Kids had a blast in the basement playroom. The cabin was minutes from both App Ski Mountain and grocery stores in town, as well as other points of interest in Blowing Rock and Boone. The hot tub was a great way to end a day on the slopes. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back again next year!

Great Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cabin from 11/17/16 to 11/27/16. The cabin and amenities are exactly as described. The kitchen is well stocked with quality utensils and appliances. The location is secluded yet only minutes from downtown Boone. The cabin was exceptionally clean and everything in working order. Laura was on top of all communications and responded to our request for information extremely promptly. The access and parking were outstanding. Thank you for a memorable trip.

Spacious, relaxing cabin!

Verified Stay

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Alpine Escape! So much room to spread out and relax! The cabin is well stocked with kitchen supplies, games, puzzles, linens, etc. Blowing Rock, Boone and Valle Crucis were only a short drive away! I only wish we could have stayed longer!!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The cabin was conveniently located to Blowing Rock and Boone, but nicely tucked away for a peaceful retreat. It is nicely furnished and extremely comfortable. The kids loved the front porch hammock and the game room(basement). The cabin is also stocked with board games and toys to entertain the entire family. I preferred to spent my time relaxing on the deck swing.

The beds were comfortable and the rooms provided adequate storage. The bathroom in the basement was a plus. I liked the layout and use of space on the main level and every amenity was provided. This is definitely a higher end cabin that provides a welcoming feel and comfort.

I really appreciated all the details Laura provided with the rental. Locating the property, tourist information and basically every answer to any question you might have about the rental and the the surrounding area.

Fabulous Cabin In Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, mother, 15mo old son and I stayed at Alpine Escape over Labor Day weekend. We loved the location as it was a very short drive to both Boone and Blowing Rock. We could even hear the Tweetsie train from the deck!

The cabin exceeded expectations. It was plenty spacious, but maintained a very cozy vibe. The beds were comfy and the kitchen was impressively stocked. It is perfect for families traveling with small children --- high chair, baby gates, stroller, toys, books are all included.

Laura was a pleasure to communicate with and, by far, one of the most flexible owners, I have ever rented from. We usually love to stay at different houses throughout the High Country when we go on our mountain getaways, but we will definitely be returning to Alpine Escape. It's perfect!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your detailed and very kind review! It really does mean a lot to me, as I too have stayed in many rentals and am usually fine with them but pretty disappointed in the amenities supplied. We started traveling to the mountains before kids, sometimes with friends, sometimes with family but eventually we added 3 little people to the mix and understood the hassle in trying to bring everything along. We always welcome feedback so we can continue to get better and provide a wonderful and relaxing experience for our guests. Thank you again, we certainly do hope you all can come back in the future!

The property is located in a very private, relaxing setting and was very clean. The owner's provided excellent customer service and thoughtful communication throughout our entire stay. Their attention to detail is absolutely amazing as we have never been to a vacation property that provided so many amenities to make your stay memorable.

This was our first trip to the area; we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon. I would absolutely recommend this property to both relatives and friends.

While the house is not deemed handicapped accessible -- there are two small steps from the drive into the main level of the house which includes the master, kitchen, laundry, deck and all other necessities. The master shower has a small seat and does not require you to step over the side. The house is very family friendly but not necessarily child proof. We do have gates on the stairs and we provide a high chair, pack-n-play and BOB SUS jogger for our guests to use. We love well-behaved dogs and welcome you to bring them along! Please let us know if you have any questions!
