About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Lewdog Lodge is located in a rhododendron forest close to Grandfather Mtn. and the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is very private & peaceful surrounded by large hardwoods, rhododendrons & mountain laurel. Everything you need to have a wonderful time is right here at the cabin. Our cabin has been recently renovated inside and out.

We are conveniently located to local attractions such as: Grandfather Mountain, Linville Caverns, Linville Falls, Linville Gorge, Tweetsie Railroad, Blue Ridge Parkway, Beech Mtn., Sugar Mtn., Southern Highland Craft Guild Shop on the Parkway, etc. There are lots of great hiking trails close by. We are also within a 15 minute drive to Banner Elk, 30 minute drive to Blowing Rock or Boone, 20 minutes from Valle Crucis. Ski resorts are 15 minutes away.

On the weekends in the summer & fall especially, there are arts & craft and bluegrass festivals close by. Excellent restaurants from expensive to McDonalds are within 5 to 15 minutes away. There are lots to do including just hanging out on the deck and watching the changing weather on Grandfather Mtn. Grocery stores are less than 10 minutes in either direction. There is a hospital and YMCA across the highway.

About Judy Jones

We have been coming to the mountains of North Carolina for many years. We love to hike and there are many great trails right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. When we found our cabin we were so excited. It is just what we wanted.

Judy Jones purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Judy Jones chose Alpendorf

It is the prettiest area in the North Carolina Mountains. Close to all the Blue Ridge Mountains & the Smoky Mountains have to offer, quaint mountain towns of Linville, Banner Elk, Blowing Rock & Boone, ski slopes nearby, good hiking trails, wonderful restaurants, great shopping, etc.

What makes this cabin unique

Our pretty view of Grandfather Mountain; it is constantly changing depending on the weather. Because we are at an elevation of approximately 3800 feet, it rarely gets above 80 degrees in the summer. In the mornings & evenings you frequently need a sweater. We live in a warm climate that is very hot in the summer and rarely snows in the winter. This location affords us a break from the heat in the summer and lots of snow in the winter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for such a relaxing weekend. It is so peaceful here and I know why you love it so. We hiked to Linville Falls and it was beautiful. God bless you both!

Loved Lewdog Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay at the cabin over pre-July 4th weekend.

The cabin is very comfortable and well equipped with just about everything we needed for our stay. We have two children, aged 11 and 9, who slept in the downstairs area – great cool factor in having their own space and bathroom down the ladder stairs (and my 9 year old loved comparing her hands to the Mommy poster above the top bunk!)

There are many homey touches throughout the cabin, art of local attractions, and lovely family pictures. It’s clear the owner has put thought into making it comfortable – thank you. There are screens on most of the windows, and we had every one of those open at night keeping the cabin at a nice cool temperature. There are windows around three quarters of the cabin and the views are beautiful. Thank you for having binoculars there, we were really excited to realize we could see the swinging bridge. And watching the sunrise over Grandfather Mountain from the couch our last morning was a true treat.

The kitchen is well equipped and has a new looking quiet dishwasher. The washing machine is convenient. Good water pressure in the shower. Comfy couch and chairs round a pretty coffee table for game night. Didn’t turn the TV on, but it looked good! Wi-Fi was a big help for getting directions. Great dining table surrounded by nice family pictures (would love to know where the mountain views were with the very blue/green lake?)

Can’t say enough good things about this place. Thank you!!

Peaceful mountain cabin with beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is very peaceful and cozy. The view from the deck is beautiful. The lower level is accessed via a very steep and narrow ladder-type staircase. Anyone with mobility issues or of larger size would have difficulty getting up and down the stairs. The lower level is well-suited as a sleeping area for children and young adults. If you arrive after dark for check-in, I would highly recommend a flashlight. The entrance to the cabin is on a wooded gravel path that leads down to a set of slate steps that are difficult to navigate in the dark especially with standard rolling luggage. There is, however, a motion activated floodlight that can be turned on once you access the cabin for the first time. Overall, it is a lovely well-appointed cabin with beautiful views.

Great way to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

Mountain-side cabin with great views. My kids loved having their own level and bathroom. They went up and down the steps 100 times. We ate dinner on the deck for dinner. We went to Grandfather Mountain (15 min) and Roan Mountain (25 min) and had a wonderful time experiencing nature and fresh air. Make sure you get there in the daylight. It would be tough to find otherwise, the roads up the hill are small and not well marked. The view is totally worth it once you find it. The owner was very helpful and easy to contact.
