About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This attractive and nicely furnished log home is centrally located in historic Valle Crucis, North Carolina; convenient to shopping in Blowing Rock, skiing in Banner Elk, and other attractions around the beautiful Boone, NC area.

With three bedrooms (King, Queen, 2 twins,and twin daybed with trundle-sleeps 2(loft)), two and a half baths and loft area, this cabin will be a favorite of every guest. Large covered porches and wrap-around deck - a great place to kick back, cook-out, and enjoy the mountain views. Don’t forget to relax in the hot tub... it has a private location off the deck.

Enjoy the views from the many large windows in the open and spacious great room and kitchen. The great room includes a large stone fireplace. The master bedroom is on the main floor with a private bath, 2 bedrooms upstairs with full bath and a twin trundle bed in the loft.

Legends cabin is less than a couple miles from the heart of Valle Crucis. It is situated in a beautiful cabin community with large wooded lots. Decorated with a theme of NC High Country and American Legends, we continue to update and maintain our cabin with new carpet, furniture, bedding, pots and pans, anything we find is needed or adds to our theme. We enjoy the many positive comments that we receive from our guests; if we cannot be there ourselves we want it to be completely enjoyed by others.

Come spend time at Legends cabin and while you are in the Valle Crucis area check out the nearby attractions. The Valle Community Park has a paved walking trail that runs along the Watauga River, picnic tables, playground equipment and spacious fields for playing games. This park is located behind the Annex and just down the road from the original Mast Store. Of course the Mast Store and Annex are a must while in the area. There are several Stables with Trail Rides in the area and historic sites like The Episcopal Mission and St. Johns Church.

While most of our guests come for a weekend or week we are open to longer rental periods during certain times of the year and are happy to discuss those options. The high country is a great location to explore, train for a bike race, write a book, or gather for a family reunion or other event.

About The Owner

We have owned Legends for several years and consider it our home away from home, which we share with others visiting the High Country.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2000

Why The Owner chose Sugar Grove

We have been visiting the HIgh Country for years. We love Valle Crucis because it is centrally located and convenient to everything, while offering a beautiful, scenic and laid-back atmosphere. The historic sites, rural setting and watauga river are all things we love. This location is great for peacefulness, family fun and scenic valley views with easy access to Boone(15min) and Blowing Rock(30min)for additional amenities.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin is cozy, but has an open airy feel that I enjoy. The large picture windows bring nature inside the cabin! If the weather is cold and snowing I can be a part of it while being cozy and warm inside by the fire. The porches are used by us year round with covered and uncovered areas. Being outdoors in this area with lush greenery all around is pretty special. The Hot Tub is a relaxing treat after a long day of hiking, fly fishing or skiing.

Guestbook comments from the manager

For the second time we have had the pleasure of enjoying your comfy and beautiful Legends Cabin. We really had a good time-the only thing we have not seen is snow. Okay. Probably next year we will come again and see some snow, but anyway with or without snow we really enjoy it. We wish you a very nice 2013- alot of blessings and thank you!

A great place to bond with families!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the Christmas break in the Legends cabin. It was cozy and well-maintained. The kitchen is fully stocked and made cooking easy . There is plenty of space to stretch out and it even snowed while we were there . There’s tons to do outdoors and were visited by a few freindly pups from down the road 🐶?. Overall, we really enjoyed staying at legends cabin and will definitely return ! Thank you for sharing it with us 😀?

Not bad but also not worth the final $$$

  • 3 of 5

internet advertised per night charge is reasonable for rental sq ft and location - however, be mindful that vendor will add various addition charges that might actually exceed what you'll see on the internet. Our 'internet' price was a certain $$ per night but will all the additional charges it ended up being almost twice as much $$. The cabin is beautiful inside but overall defiantly wasn't worth what we ended having to spend. Additionally, the property photos are very clever but this rental is completely surrounded on all sides by other cabins in close proximity.

Owner's Response: This is to clarify points made in the review to assist future travelers. Property rates, taxes and fees for services are displayed on all properties listed on HomeAway/VRBO in the NC High Country. We provide a detailed quote to each traveler in advance of the reservation and payment process. Pricing is also detailed in the property listing. We understand that some travelers are only able to visit for a couple days or a weekend and we honor stays as short as 2 nights. A fee for something like cleaning/housekeeping will seem higher to a traveler who is staying 2-3 nights versus someone spending a week at the property. We believe Legends Cabin represents an excellent value, especially considering the quality of the property, as well as the furnishings and other amenities. Legends sits on large lot (1+ acre) in a prime location, which we describe as semi-private. Our feedback over time has been that travelers like the location and do not want to be secluded or at properties with accessibility issues, especially in Winter months. We always welcome any dialogue and questions so we can ensure Legends Cabin is a great fit for you and your party and would point to all of our other reviewers as indicators of desirability.

Lovely legends

  • 5 of 5

This home was so comfortable that I wanted to buy it or at least transport it home to Pennsylvania! Everything was just right from the decor to the very comfy bed on the first floor! I even wrote down the mattress type for future purchase. It was very quiet and serene here. With valle crucis and Boone so close going out for dinner was so easy, although we cooked many nights in the better to enjoy relaxing on the great porch after a day of hiking. I would definitely recommend staying at this house!

Great Family Cabin - wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this cabin twice in the last year (one in fall and now in the summer). Cabin is located in a real good area, great porch, great for our dogs and well kept. Excellent kitchen for cooking meals at the cabin, nice showers as well as a nice hot tub. Nice to relax in under the trees and stars. There is so much to do in this area for young kids as well as teens. Our family enjoyed - Tweetsie Railroad & High Gravity, just 25 minutes away, the wonderful town of Boone (just 15 minutes away) - do try Mysterium, the children's museum play house for under 5's, as well as local eats (to numerous to include - but our favorite is the Mellow Mushroom Pizza, Lindville Falls (do go hike down to the falls) about 40 minutes away as well as the caverns and Grandfather Mountain, about 30 minutes away. Don't be scared of the 4,800 foot high suspension bridge! Just down from the cabin is the Mast general store (just awesome) and the Valle Crucis city park (play area as well as the Watauga stream access).

Owner's Response: We are very glad you enjoyed your stay at Legends Cabin! We share a lot of the same favorite places! Next time you visit you might like hiking and boulder hopping at the Hebron Rock Colony. When we are feeling adventurous, that's one of our favorite trails. Best Wishes!

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The property is gorgeous, easy to access, and a perfect layout for our family. Boone is only 15 minutes away which is where we spent the majority of our time. The beds were very comfortable and the fireplace was enjoyable. Hot tub was a hit for all!!!
