About The Owner

I grew up just outside of Wilmington, NC and I have lived in Charlotte, Raleigh, and Boone, where I attended Appalachian State. I fell in love with the area when I was there and kept visiting as much as possible. Finally, I decided to buy my own cabin instead of always renting. After about two years of renovations, I finally was able to get it up for rent. I now live in Texas and I try to get back there as much as I can.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2007

Why The Owner chose North Carolina

When I arrive at this cabin, I can just feel the stress of everyday life go away. And like many of the guests that have stayed here, I never want to leave. Please read through some of the comments that they have left and I think you will feel confident in choosing this cabin. It is priced right and the pictures do not do it justice.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

Rodney the owner was very easy to talk too. Seem like a very nice person, you can feel the warmth of his personality thru his emails. He was very kind and patient with all our questions.

We chose the this cabin primarily for its location. We were looking for something that is not too far up in the mountain and easy to get too. And this one just fit the bill. The cabin was in perfect location, easy to find, very close to hawknest, and blowing rock. We are a group of 2 couples with 5 kids with us. The 3 bedroom & 3 bathroom was perfect. Again all the bathrooms were immaculately clean. The adults can have privacy with the 2 master bedrooms; nobody felt crowded. The cabin was spotlessly clean. The drawers were labeled so things are easy to find. We enjoyed the porch and the swing. We wish there was a hot tub 😊Though. But for the price we paid it was just perfect!

Maybe more light in the kitchen/dining area? It just felt kind of dark for me.

Overall we had a wonderful stay, and made fond memories. Thank you so much Rodney!

Perfect for our visit to the region - visit Appalachian State & do some hiking in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

The owner Rodney went above and beyond to help us make some adjustments on the fly on a short fuse. The house was well appointed and met the hopes and needs of our family of 5. Big enough to spread out but still cozy. Just a few miles out of Boone so easy to get to the Blue Ridge Parkway, restaurants, and nearby sights.

Beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our quick trip to the mountains. We had two families and having a room with 2 double beds for the kids and 2 master bedrooms was perfect. The beds were very comfortable and the house had everything we needed for cooking in for two nights.

Wonderful little gem....

  • 5 of 5

Cute little cottage in a serene environment. Great location near Blowing rock, Boone and Banner Elk. Close to 105 highway so you avoid the small winding roads. Close to restaurants and shopping areas, 20-25 min to sugar, beech mountains. Family friendly comfortably accommodated 4 adults and 4 kids.

Thanksgiving Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Five of us were flying in to celebrate Thanksgiving with 9 family members who live in/near Boone. The house was wonderful - very clean, in an excellent location, and very comfortable. We loved the open floor-plan with kitchen, living room (fireplace was great!), and dining table. We had plenty of room to cook our dinner, set up a buffet, and for all 14 of us to eat comfortably. We have rented many cabins in the area over previous years but this one was really great. We will definitely be back and may even make this our NC Thanksgiving cabin! Oh...and we loved the porch overlooking the Christmas tree farm and the many goats on the farm across the street.

Mini cabin vacation

  • 5 of 5

We arrived with a family of 7 at night. Cabin was easy to get to by GPS. Close to everything and near Boone and Blowing Rock. It was 2 couples and 3 kids ages 6-8 years old. They had so much fun. Cabin was extremely clean and had all essentials. It accommodated all of us comfortably. My only complaint was the queen bed downstairs was not very comfortable. I believe the mattress might need replacement. Felt as if the mattress was slanted therefore feeling like your head was lower then your legs. Also there was a dining room chair that was quite loose and felt like it might break soon. But otherwise everything else was perfect! Kids played 3 hours of Monopoly which was fun sine it was their first time playing a board game. Parents jumped in and we all had some family fun. It was a fun experience for all. Reason we stayed only 2 days was because we were road tripping.

Owner's Response: The dining room chair had a couple of loose bolts. They have been tightened. As for the bed, it was not balanced. Handyman is taking care of that now. Mattress is only 3 years old and was not a cheap one. However, if the problem is not solved, I will replace it.
