About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

This cabin was built in 2009 and is very cute - tucked on a hillside with a fabulous ridge view yet only 3 minutes from downtown Boone and ASU. This cabin is on a hillside so there is an incline and you will need 4WD or AWD if there is of snow. I do keep it plowed when there is significant snow. This rustic/contemporary cabin has all new appliances and the kitchen is fully equipped with cookware and dishes, etc. We provide basic Cable TV from Skyline in the living room and bedrooms, cabin has WiFi. Both bedrooms have queen beds, dressers, closets, color TV's with cable, and private bathrooms. There are ceiling fans in every room. Both bedrooms have electric heaters to assist the main gas "wall mounted" fireplace in the living room. Both bedrooms have a view of the mountains. The living room has a queen size pull out sofa.

I've just added a comfortable recliner in the living room and a new DVD player with a couple dozen family and children type movies as of 7/27/2015.

We strive to give our guests a relaxing and worry-free respite without charging excessive fees. What you see is what you get on the rates, there are no hidden fees.

The cabin is located on a quiet side street and you will have complete privacy. Sit on the deck and watch the leaves turn, the snow fall, or the sun shine, or all of the above :) Be careful when you visit, you may want to stay.

About Andrea Byrd

I have been renting vacation cabins for 3 years and I strive to provide a worry free respite for my guests.

i fell into this business by accident when my daughter moved out and I found myself with extra space I stumbled across VRBO online and thought what do I have to lose. We currently rent out two of our properties as vacation rentals and I do enjoy meeting new people.

Andrea Byrd purchased this cabin in 2009

Perfect for Cozy Weekend Getaway!

My husband and I booked the cabin for a weekend getaway trip. Small, cozy and exactly what we needed. Perfect location to downtown Boone! Beds were comfortable and all the amenities we needed. Definitely perfect for 2-4 people.

Roomy for 2 Bedrooms

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our 3 night stay for 4 people. Great size bedrooms and bathrooms. Good size kitchen for cooking. Very convenient to skiing at Appalachian and Sugar Mtn. Was very thankful there was no snow, driveway could be precarious otherwise. Cute cabin set in residential neighborhood.

Clean, good beds, good appliances.

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable and folksy. Pillows old and thin. Bulbs in lamps low wattage making it difficult to read. Couch low and soft. Kitchen table has hard wooden chairs; cushions would be nice. Toilet paper thin and commercial.

Owner's Response: Pillow have been replaced. I am not sure what this reviewer was referring to as low wattage. I do have one bear lamp that takes a 40 watt bulb but all of other lamps have at least standard 60 watt bulbs and some 75 watt and the floor lamp is a 3 way that goes up to 100 watts plus overhead lights in every room.

Nice and cozy

  • 5 of 5

My little family went to Boone to celebrate my birthday and to go cheer on my Mountaineers. The cabin was the perfect size for us and offered a great place for a long weekend stay. The location puts you minutes from the activities around town and on campus, yet away from the hordes of college town traffic. The Appalcart stop is also very close, which connects you to bus stops all around Boone. It really is a wonderful little place to stay with a great view from the deck that allows for some nice star gazing. We will definitely be looking forward to a return trip!

Great location. Close to the 105 but not sitting on it. Inside set up was done quite well. Drive way was different but very navigable. Elevation was good; especially from the deck (front of the cabin) giving a good view.

Adorable cabin

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay for an ASU football weekend. We were 2 couples and absolutely loved the cabin and location. The cabin cost less than hotels in the area. It was clean and convenient. Very quiet and amazing views! Thank you for allowing us to stay! We will be back!!!
