About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This quaint log cabin is a once in a 'Blue Moon' mountain experience! (View virtual tour link at bottom of listing for more and larger photography) Blue Moon Cabin is located in the 'Lakes' log home neighborhood, in Seven Devils, conveniently situated off Hwy. 105 in the Heart of the High Country - just 15 minutes to Boone & App State University, Grandfather Mountain, Linville, Sugar Mountain & Banner Elk and a 25 minute drive to beautiful downtown Blowing Rock - via Shulls Mill Road - one of the most scenic local drives on the mountain. Just over one mile from Blue Moon is Hawksnest Resort where you can enjoy winter snow tubing, and the Hawksnest's zipline course in the spring-autumn months. There are several small lakes within Seven Devils for you to explore & hike to right from the cabin - and within a short distance - there are many hiking trails, fly fishing streams, golf courses, gem mining, and numerous outdoor activities for all seasons! A variety of local restaurants are within 10-20 minutes away.

Cabin Features

Blue Moon is situated on a quiet street and features a friendly rocking chair front porch where you will find yourself gravitating too. Enjoy the surrounding lush native woodlands and beautiful boulder rock formations across the street. There is a circular driveway for ease in parking & a safe (for children) and expansive yard to enjoy. The Town of Seven Devils provides winter snow plowing throughout the mountain for your convenience.

The main living area exemplifies mountain rustic elegance with plush, comfortable furnishings, a soaring 2-story wood-burning stone fireplace, exposed hand-hewn beams, custom-crafted wood shutters, beautiful wood floors with decorative area rugs and a pine farm table for casual dining. This cabin is newly appointed with brand new carpeting, linens and bedding and special mountain decorative touches throughout - all which are updated for the season. There is a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel sink if you choose to stay in - or feel free to fire up the gas grill on the back deck. The cozy back porch sun room features a comfortable sofa, television, and hand-painted bistro table for lingering with your morning coffee - and is the perfect spot for a quiet escape with your favorite book. After a long day of hiking, shopping or just relaxing, you'll love retreating to the charming first floor master bedroom.

Upstairs: There's plenty of room to stretch out in the spacious upstairs bedroom & loft suite, painted in maple leaf red, featuring a luxurious queen bed with chandelier overhead, and a sitting room with a full size futon sofa, overstuffed chair and ottoman, TV, VCR & DVD player - as well as its own private bath.

Relax and enjoy the serenity and authentic mountain charm of Blue Moon Cabin - we know you will love its central location to everything and hope you will come back and experience each of the glorious seasons that the Blue Ridge Mountains have to offer. We look forward to welcoming you back time and time again!

About Mike and Marianne

Our family has been coming to the mountains for years - and have all enjoyed some of our fondest memories in the High Country. There is so much to do in each of the four seasons as far as outdoor activities - and we have also grown to appreciate the great music, concerts and plays, fun restaurants, shopping, ASU football games and the many festivals throughout the year. It is our favorite place to get away from city life and enjoy nature and breathe the beautiful mountain air as well as slow down and RELAX....spending quality time with our family and friends. We hope you cherish your time at Blue Moon Cabin as much as we do with our friends and family!

Mike and Marianne purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Mike and Marianne chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

They say you are either 'mountain' people or 'beach' people - and although we enjoy both - we love and adore the Blue Ridge Mountains. After renting for years all over the surrounding area, we narrowed our search down to the Seven Devils area of the High Country - specifically due to its central location to all the unique and quaint mountain towns close by. Boone and Appalachian State University are 15 minutes up Hwy 105, Sugar Mountain Banner Elk, and Beech are just 10-20 minutes away, Grandfather Mountain and Linville are 10-15 minutes away - and the charming town of Blowing Rock is 20-25 minutes away via Shulls Mill Drive - one of the most scenic mountain drives in the High Country! Since the ski slope has closed, Seven Devils is now home to one of the largest Snow Tubing Resorts and Zipline courses on the East Coast - which is located 1.5 miles away at Hawksnest. Many folks drive up and buy their tickets for a time slot - and then go back and relax at the cabin until then.

What makes this cabin unique

You will enjoy the mountain rustic elegance of the cabin which is updated for each season. Relax in big, overstuffed, comfortable furniture. The great room features a wood-burning, 2-story fireplace, exposed hand-hewn beams, custom crafted wood shutters and wood floors. The cabin has been appointed with brand new linens and Pottery Barn comforters, as well as new carpet in the bedrooms. The main great room is the perfect gathering spot for families and the sun room offers a quiet little escape to relax and renew. Everyone loves the large rocking chair front porch with comfy seating for six. The property sits in a picturesque wooded setting on a quiet circle culdesac of charming log homes. There is parkland across the street with huge boulder rock formations where children love to play while parents can watch from the front porch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We can't thank you enough for sharing your beautiful cabin with us - especially since you had to change your own plans to accomodate us after our original date got "iced out". What family memories we have made - snow tubing at Hawksnest was a blast! Then it was on to Sugar Mountain for snow boarding - the kids couldn't wipe the smile off there faces! Sunday was spent by the fireplace playing board games - we nearly made our goal of playing every game in your cabinet! We've used VRBO for years, and have always had positive experiences, but this experience rises well above the rest! Blue Moon Cabin is in a fantastic location, is so beautifully decorated - and generously well-stocked. You have thought of everything to make your guests feel so welcome. We're already talking about our next trip back.

Exactly as described quiet and peaceful our idea of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We rated this 5 stars but the app wants to show this as 3 or 4. We had a wonderful week at blue moon cabin, it felt like home right away. Everything we could possibly need was provided. The owners recomendations for food and sightseeing were spot on. We would highly recomend this property.

"Relaxing, Comfortable and Quiet...a nice getaway!"

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is beautifully decorated inside & out with top-notch furniture and wonderful antiques!

We checked out all of the antiques since we are collectors too. We found the beds and living room furniture very comfortable.

The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of glassware, pots & pans and spices. It had everything we needed for what little cooking we did.

We loved sitting out on the porch enjoying our morning coffee, enjoying our novels in the afternoon, or finishing the evening with a glass of wine!

The only reason we gave our review 4 stars is because we found the cabin to be very dark even with all the shutters open and the sun shining!

The lamps all seemed to have low wattage bulbs and even the overhead ceiling light was dim. One ceiling light did not work. The dining room light was bright but glaring.

We also found that all of the lights in the master bedroom were extremely dim.

The nightstand lights held small Christmas bulbs and the overhead ceiling light was very dim. The lights in the master bathroom were perfect and I was thankful when applying my makeup.

My husband & I went out to the grocery store and purchased a 3-way bulb for the lamp in the living room so we could at least read on our novels in the evening. It was too cool to sit out on the porch and read by the natural light.

Also, we found an iron in the closet and wondered if there was an ironing board anywhere? We looked but couldn't find one. We usually take our own iron when we travel and have grown accustomed to ironing things on the bed.

All in all, we have a very relaxing and enjoyable trip trying some new restaurants like Stonewalls and Sorrento's in Banner Elk, Café Portofino in Boone, Peddling Pig, and always Grandfather Winery.

We also had fun antiquing around Boone & Blowing Rock, shopping at the Tangier's Outlet Mall, plus visiting Mast General Store, The Little Red School House and their Annex Store.

The Dog & Cat Store in Foscoe was a great find and we had to purchase some treats to take home to our wonderful puppy, Chloe who just celebrated her 1 year birthday!

The owners were excellent to work with in all manners with their prompt and friendly communications, the apps provided were very helpful and we would definitely recommend this cabin to all visitors.

We would definitely come back again if the lighting situation was improved!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the candid review, and for being such lovely guests...We very much enjoyed all of our email correspondence with you. While we have not had any previous guests mention the lighting situation, we take your comments to heart. In fact, my wife and I are heading to the cabin next weekend to upgrade the bulbs in all the lamps, and provide a new stash of extra bulbs (with the location clearing marked). We are very grateful for your honest feedback, and view this as an opportunity to improve the overall guest experience for all future guests. We hope you have a wonderful summer, and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Have a Very Blessed Day......Mike & Marianne

wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Blue Moon Cabin is perfect! The cabin is very-well maintained, clean, comfortable and quiet. We were a family of 2 parents, a toddler and an infant and had no problems. I chose it because its not on a busy road and because you could easily plan outside. The cabin came with very nice sheets, towels, and dishes, and is close enough to the grocery store and restaurants that you can easily pop out if you need something. The owners were easy to work with and flexible with our check-in time as we had kids who needed to nap. I would highly recommend and would return to this beautiful cabin and area!
