About Rick or Dana Cox

Moved to the awesome NC mountains from FL in 2003. We enjoy sharing our cabin in the woods.

Rick or Dana Cox purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Rick or Dana Cox chose Todd

The Boone/Todd area is probably one of the most beautiful areas in the USA. After living in Alabama and South Florida and traveling this great nation, I have come to love not only the scenery, but the friendliest people in the country.

What makes this cabin unique

3 acre lake with fishing, swimming and pedal boat rental on property. Three Top Creek is located on property and is a North Carolina stocked trout stream.

Venice Beach

Quiet and peaceful getaway. Perfect place to get back to nature and relax

  • 5 of 5

I truly enjoyed my time at the Windwalker Cabin. It was remote enough that I couldn't see another home from the cabin which gave me the peace and quiet I was looking for. The cabin itself had everything I needed from, comfortable bed and linens, to a kitchen will all the cookware needed to prepare my own meals, and a nice outdoor space to soak in the sounds of nature and take in the starry nights. And it had what I didn't need/want as well. No cell service, no tv shows (tv with DVD player available if you must watch something), and no internet in the cabin (but wi-fi provided at Rick and Dana's house so I could check in when need be) The weather was perfect, didn't need AC or heat. Just left the windows open and ceiling fans spinning. Wish I could have stayed longer and can't wait to make it back there.

Looks nice...wrong STATE... we live in Washington state thousands of miles away

  • 5 of 5

We live in Washington state and for some reason vrbo showed us places in North Carolina and we booked it thinking it was in Washington and the address was just where the owners lived. Hopefully the owners are willing to issue a refund.

Quiet Mountain Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was great! Quiet, cozy, and rustic! Perfect for a fall mountain retreat! No tv, no land line phone, cell service was pretty good (we were wise enough to tell everybody it wasn't so no phone calls)! Native American decor was a great touch! Only draw back was that the heater didn't respond to the thermostat so had to operate manually, a very, very, MINOR problem that Rick said he would take care of right away! If you're looking for a low-tech getaway this is the cabin for you!

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay very much. Private, relaxing and perfect for the two of us and our furbaby. The only negative is the road in.. potholes are horrendous.

Just what the doctor ordered!

  • 3 of 5

It was perfect for our needs -- neat, tidy, remote, well-stocked. It had everything we needed for our meals and our pup was very happy to wander outside, but not too far. The location was great -- accessible to Boone and West Jefferson. And there are innumerable hikes in the area -- of all levels, lengths and types (water, mountains, flat, steep climbs, easy, challenging). The road in is treacherous, though, and we are hoping that can be repaired -- it dampens the experience of returning to our cozy cabin after a beautiful day enjoying Creation.

Owner's Response: We're glad the cabin was perfect for you. We're not sure why you submitted a 3 star review for a place that you liked so much. Yes the road is gravel and that is what make our place so remote. It is accessible for all vehicles in the summer. Road is bumpy, but only for about a 1/4 mile. We would hope that this adds to the enjoyment of the country setting and not hinder it. Thanks again for staying with us.
