Overview

High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains Cabin Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

Come disconnect from it all and stay in a REAL log home! We just added a new deck on the ground floor to enjoy the outdoors even more! We also just updated our Master Bath vanity and installed Granite counter tops. Our Log home is close to The New River (1 mile), Boone (9 miles), and not too far from West Jefferson (12 miles) . We are about 1.0 mile from the Todd General Store, River Girl Fishing Co., Railroad Grade and The New River. The cabin comes with 4 bikes to ride along the river & Railroad Grade. The cabin is furnished with all upscale furniture, appliances, linens, and TV's. This home away from home will be the best get away you have ever had. Just bring your suitcase and tooth brush, everything else is provided. We also have done several upgrades since completing the cabin. We recently, paved our entire driveway, added a lower deck, made the basement shower bigger, and put in full slab granite on the kitchen counter top and top of the line kitchen faucet.

Our log home has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, a Pack N Play for the little one to sleep and play in, a toddler bed if requested, a feeding chair and 2 gates to keep your little one safe. Each level of the home has a full bathroom. The wraparound porch with direct pipe gas bar-b-q and porch swing will let you and your family enjoy the breathtaking mountain views and mountain fresh air.

In the finished walk out basement there is a full size futon that sleeps 2 and a day bed with trundle that also sleeps 2 with a full bathroom. The laundry room is located also in the basement with top of the line HE washer and dryer. You will also find the play room in the basement with a ping pong table, an electronic Dart board, and a foosball table. The different games will supply your family with hours of entertainment. Next to the play room there is a bistro table that sits 4. We call this area the 'Wine Sipping Area'. This area is perfect for adults to disconnect from it all and have a good time with family and friends. Once you step out of the basement we recently added a new deck on the ground level.

The spiral staircase takes you up to the main level of the house (gate for the little one not to go downstairs provided) where you will find 2 full bedrooms, a full bathroom, a dining room that sits up to 10 people, living room, and recently updated granite counter kitchen with top of the line stainless steel appliances. In the living room you'll find a real wood burning fireplace as the main attraction and a 42' plasma TV and DVD player with surround sound. The first bedroom in the main level has a queen size bed, dresser and night stand. The second bedroom room has a 2 twin size beds and a chest of drawers.

The master bedroom/bathroom suite and loft are located on the 3rd level of the home. The master suite has a 26' flat screen TV and a king size bed. The master bathroom has a claw foot tub, his and her sinks, and a shower with 2 shower heads. One shower head comes from the ceiling like a cool mountain rain shower. The loft has a mission style desk with WiFi available, and a convertible twin sleeper. All linens are supplied and are all bleached and sanitized after every renter!

Come and enjoy everything that our area has to offer. We have all 4 seasons!! In the spring come and bike (3 bikes provides to bike on Railroad grade that's .5 mile away) , canoe (New River .5 mile away), hike, cave, zipline, and do white water rafting. In the summer come and drift down our river with inner tubes (4 provided in the home). In the Fall come see our spectacular Fall colors. In the winter you'll enjoy all the winter sports, such as.. skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, ice skating and snow shoeing in any of the four local ski resorts that are near by. (1) bundle of wood supplied at check-in. More available if desired @ $4.00 a bundle. Come see the incredible views on Grandfather mountain or do some shopping in Beautiful Blowing Rock, Boone, Banner Elk and West Jefferson.

About The Owner

My wife and I live in Miami, and our daughter lives in Todd NC. We visit her often, so we decided to build a Log cabin also to be close to her.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2009

Why The Owner chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

Because of the four seasons and the mountain views.

What makes this cabin unique

Relaxation when needed and all amenities (skiing, hiking, canoeing, caving, shopping, etc.) when relaxation is not needed.

Perfect Luxurious Cabin and Top Notch Owners

  • 5 of 5

We just had a mountain perfect weekend with our friends, and even had snow! (In April!) This was my second stay and was even better. The cabin is rustic and modern at the same time, all upscale appliances, decor, bathrooms. The many small touches of special in this home are purely reflective of the amazing owners who pour their love into this place. This is not your average cabin! They are constantly updating and keeping this place perfect! The customer service is UNREAL! Upon arrival we realized there wasn't a Keurig, (as there had been my first stay in Oct). After a quick email, Michelle brought one over within 10 minutes!!!! Saved us a trip back to town for regular coffee, since we only brought k-cups! The cabin has so much to do, for families or couples. Since it was super blustery and snowy, we stayed inside mostly, playing cards & enjoying the basement game room. We had an amzing Star Wars movie night on the home theater in living room. This cabin is a no fuss, guaranteed fun and relaxing time!

Wonderful, Authentic Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my friends and I have rented this cabin and it is always a wonderful stay. It's a real log cabin but is updated on the inside so it feels authentic but clean and modern as well. There's not too much to do around the area but everything is within driving distance. My friends and I enjoyed hanging out in the living room with the fire going. There are multiple places to sleep in the cabin which is one of the reasons we continue to come back. We are slowly expanding the amount of people that attend our trip so having multiple beds and pull out couches is a must! It's a very clean and well kept cabin and we are never worried that we're walking into a nightmare rental. The Pelayos are wonderful to communicate with and are very attentive to emails or questions. It was another wonderful trip and we'll be back!

Cozy Weekend

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this cabin for a weekend get away out of Charlotte. We had a good time, Boone and Blowing Rock are a little bit of a drive but not bad. The cabin is very homey and cozey, we spent most of our time either hiking, shopping, sight seeing. I would recommend the cabin to anyone looking for a mountain retreat. Only downside was the neighbors are much closer than the pictures show. The neighbor houses are pretty close.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and I am glad you enjoyed our cabin. We take great pride on the cleanliness and amenities that we offer to our renters as we are the owners and not a rental company. I am sorry that you were under the assumption that the our cabin was secluded. Our cabin is in a subdivision (that comes in handy when when we have snow storms and the subdivision tractor cleans our roads and driveways). Every home (2 plus ours on our road) in our subdivision are on at least on an acre. I am sorry you though we were little far, we are exactly 9.5 miles to New Market Center in Boone where you can find a Lowes food, the movie theater and a couple of places to eat. Downtown Boone Main street is a mile from there. Being 9.5 miles away is great because we are close to town but at the same time away enough to not be in the hustle and bustle of Boone. Not sure if you were able to go the New River, Todd Mercantile, Todd General Store, River Girl, Todd Bakery and Downtown Todd. That is only 1.5 miles from the cabin. Thank you

Perfect even in a snow storm!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was more beautiful than the pictures. Tons of space and plenty to do. We had planned to go snow tubing and shopping Saturday, but got snowed in by Winter Storm 2016. No problem, though! We used the sleds the owner provided, as well as playing ping pong and foosball in the game room, and we actually had more fun being snowed in than we would have had if the weather had been nicer. We all want to return for a stay in this cabin during each season, to enjoy everything it has to offer.

Just to mention a couple more of the amenities we enjoyed, my girls and I LOVED the clawfoot bathtub in the master bath, the kitchen was very well equipped with dishes, pots/pans, dishwasher, toaster oven, etc., there was a small stack of DVD's with something for everyone, board games in a main level closet, super comfortable beds, never-ending hot water...I could go on and on.

Also, the owner was very available to answer questions and give advice as the trip got closer and we realized the weather was going to get bad. Mike was wonderful to work with!

Family Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful. Very homey and inviting. There was sufficient room for all of us. Cabin was equipped with all the conveniences of home including two coffee makers!!! We built fires in the indoor and outdoor fireplaces and had a lovely family Thanksgiving. It is close to lots of activities including shopping in Boone, NC as well as hiking and sightseeing at Grandfather Mountain. Will definitely keep this place in mind for the future.
