Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Come disconnect from it all and stay in a REAL log home! We added a deck and a fire pit in 2016 on the ground floor to enjoy the outdoors even more! We also 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 3 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 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 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 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 added a 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 60" 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,a chest of drawers and a Wii for the kids to play.

The master bedroom/bathroom suite and loft are located on the 3rd level of the home. The master suite has a 42" 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 Railroad Grade (~1 mile away) , canoe (New River ~1 mile away), hike, cave, zipline, and do white water rafting. In the summer come and drift down our river with inner tubes (3 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 during the Winter months. 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.

A perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in the mountains of NC yet close to a lovely college town.

We wish we could've stayed longer to enjoy the quiet and beauty.

2017 Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our family retreat in this beautiful, clean, and well equipped log cabin. It had everything we needed especially the kitchen and accommodated our family very well. The log cabin is in a great location. You are in up in the mountains, but at the same time, easy to get to Boone if you needed any personal items. We are very appreciative to the Pelayo's for sharing their home with us. As you entered the home, it felt so inviting and gave a "warm welcome" to you . Todd, NC is a beautiful area and we enjoyed exploring in the area. Thank you again for sharing your beautiful home and giving us an opportunity to make precious memories there. God bless you and your family.

Couldnt have found a better place to stay! Abosolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Best rental you can find for a perfect mountain getaway! The cabin was very clean, well decorated, and the scenery was breathtaking! My party of five was amazed by the beauty of the home.

Driving to the cabin is a great adventure! Grab your driving gloves and get ready for a beautiful journey with winding roads and turns. I personally loved making the drive. It is a straight shot from the main road to the cabin. It was really easy to navigate around town and there was no shortage of places to go. If you head to downtown Boone be prepared to pay for parking. There are meters that take cash or card and parking ran around a dollar per hour. Oh! And be sure to park with the direction of traffic. I barely avoided a ticket for that, but lesson learned! lol

The kitchen was stocked with everything you need to prepare a home-cooked meal. My husband loved the gas grill that had a direct line attached. The Master Bedroom is very roomy and the Master Bath is a treat on its own. There is a spacious playroom on the first floor with direct access to the lovely sitting area outside. It was raining and a little cool during our visit, but I would love to plan a trip here when it is a little warmer to take advantage of that space. My two year old loved the 3/4 wraparound porch, so he could get his daily run in!

We didnt have good cell service, but the wifi provided offsets the need.

There are many more things I wish we could have done, but our visit was just too short. More the reason for us to keep this on our list of destinations to revisit.

The owner was very responsive to my questions prior to renting and after we have made it to our destination. I will be recommending this as a great vacation spot to my friends and we will most definitely be back.

spring break vacation

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this cabin, it had everything and more. The pictures do not do it justice. The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We were looking for a snowy Spring break vacation and certainly got it. The house is in a great location, easy to find with the directions provided by the owner and our GPS. There is market about 10 minutes Lowe's where we picked up groceries. Love the store, has a bar...you can sip a beer and shop. Every place we visited was within 30 minutes or less driving time. The owners have taken the time to provide brochures of nearby attractions and restaurants. The house is very comfortable and you don't feel crowded in. The process of booking, getting our deposit back and communicating was easy. Mr. Pelayo responded very quickly to our inquiries. We are looking forward to traveling in the fall to explore and hike. During our vacation, the weather didn't allow much for that but there was still plenty to do around the Boone area. I highly recommend this cabin, it is a beautiful place that is well cared for and the owners take pride in their property. We had one of our best vacations ever. Until next time

Beautiful cabin.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful, clean, and only 30 min from stores, gas etc. The owners are very nice, and respond back very quickly. We had a wonderful time, and will be back again hopefully in the summer. Thank you for a very nice mini vacation.
