Boone Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath cottage on mountain stream

Creekside Cottage is a distinctive guesthouse known for its congenial atmosphere offering a cozy and comfortable mountain getaway. Our family's mountain cottage is furbished with Ralph Lauren bedding and bath robes for your comfort. A perfect location in a very peaceful mountain setting close to all area attractions, downtown Blowing Rock and Boone. A bold stream runs under rear deck and hot tub and around property providing a reassuring and restful presence to these serene surroundings.

Relax in the private hot tub on the deck right outside the back door after a long day on the numerous hiking trails winding through the Blue Ridge Mountains. A short hike from the cottage, through the woods and a boulder field, connects to The Mountain-to-Sea Trail. Soaking in the hot tub under the bright stars on a clear night is a soothing conclusion to an exhilarating day on the slopes.

Nearby ski mountains are Appalachian Ski Mountain (4 miles), Sugar Mountain (22 miles) and Beech Mountain (28 miles). Everyone enjoys snow tubing at Hawksnest (19 miles).

Shopping and gourmet dining in the Village of Blowing Rock is a short five minute drive. Additional shopping and dining available in Boone, only ten minutes from your front door. Area ski resorts and golf courses are only 3 miles from Creekside Cottage.

Lodging for fewer than required minimums will be considered if inquiry is less than 5 days before arrival date. One-night lodging is not available at any time.

About Eddie Walters

Our family resides in the small coastal town of Sunset Beach, NC. Eddie and Carol are vacation rental managers and real estate brokers. We have two daughters residing in Raleigh and Chapel Hill.

Eddie Walters purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Eddie Walters chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

While attending Appalachian State University, I fell in love with the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Our family enjoys the many hiking, rafting, skiing and sightseeing opportunities. We enjoy occasional breaks from the coastal summers to enjoy cooler days and nights at this elevation.

What makes this cottage unique

I found this cottage on VRBO several years ago and brought my family on a winter vacation to see snow! Living on the coast, this was a rare treat for my daughters. We enjoyed the fantastic location, great stream and rustic, cozy feel of the cottage so much, we decided to buy it! We hope you enjoy your visit as much as our family does.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Enjoyed our stay for fall break with our college kids! Peak leaf season was a treat despite some clouds and rain. We were cozy and comfortable and enjoyed your cute cabin in the woods!

Very comfortable Cottage in the Mountains

  • 4 of 5

This property was a perfect get away for our long weekend in the mountains. It is very conveniently located to the Blowing Rock and Boone areas and sits very near the Blue Ridge Parkway. The hot tub was a welcome addition after long hikes. The cottage was rustic and tastefully decorated on the inside. It was well kept and clean. We would totally recommend this place and hope to stay here again in the future.

Best Fall vacation ever !!!!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible vacation! The cabin was perfect and had everything we could possibly need. We really enjoyed being in a perfect location to many sites and activities. Relaxing in the hot tub or just sitting on the deck in the evening was a perfect way to end a day.

The cabin was so peaceful and private. Making reservations and getting information was so easy and the owners were most helpful.

We would stay here over and over again. Thanks for everything!

We loved our stay at Creekside Cottage. My Husband and I stayed for four nights. The owners have thought of everything to make it cozy!! We were there for our youngest Son's Wedding. We relaxed and grilled and spent time in the hot tub! I even baked apple pies and two cobblers for the reception! We definitely plan on returning for another visit!

I am so glad for the telephone in the cabin. We had to communicate with others in the Wedding Party and our cell phone had such poor reception!! So the landline was a life saver!!!

Thanks for everything!!

this is a good place to relax

  • 4 of 5

We rented this place in june, and we liked it so much we returned in august. It really has me thinking about getting a hot tub for home use. The facilities are great. The only thing wrong about the place is that we couldn't shut and lock the front door. There is a stream that runs right behind the house that you can hear clearly when outdoors. The kitchen was super. So were the bathrooms. I recommend this to anyone.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cabin with our 5 year old & 2.5 year old. It was perfect! Our daughters slept downstairs and with a fan running were great. The upstairs with ac unit was perfect. We loved the hot tub at night when the kids went to bed. The kids loved playing in the creek and we loved its sound! We even did smores one night in the fire pit! We live in Atlanta so it was great to escape the oppressive heat! My husband loves to cycle and loved being able to ride out of the cabin and be on the blue ridge parkway. What a great location! We highly recommend it and we would stay again! Thank you!!!

We really enjoyed our stay. The hot tub was exceptionally great. The stream running just behind the deck was another feature we appreciated, as well as the heavily wooded area surrounding the cabin. No AC wasn't a problem, but it would've been if we'd stayed during hotter days. The main problem we had was that on our last night, the front door wouldn't open. We had to go get help from a neighbor, who climbed in an unlocked window to let us get in. That was pretty much blind luck; otherwise we were left in the lurch.

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Creekside Cottage. The mild summer climate and high elevation make central a/c unnecessary on all but a few extreme days of the year. The wall unit upstairs does a great job of removing the humidity and cooling our home when needed. Even summer nights drop into the low to mid 60's! I'm glad our neighbor was able to assist with your lock out and apologize for the inconvenience. Please know I'm only a phone call, text or email away and always have my phone in my pocket. We have a spare key in the lock box on the front porch for such emergencies. We welcome you back to Creekside Cottage on your next mountain vacation! Eddie and Carol Walters
