North Carolina Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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

Lazy K is a beautiful log style cabin perched on the side of a mountain overlooking wonderful layered views of the Blue Ridge Mountains! You will feel totally relaxed and at peace in our cozy cabin looking out the french doors down the valley from the great room with the fire burning in the fireplace or enjoying coffee and hot chocolate on the huge back deck watching the sun rise over the valley, often with morning mist below you.

This is a great house for 1 large family or two smaller families with two master bedrooms with queen beds (one on the main level and one downstairs) and a fun kids bunkroom with one bunk bed and 2 twins downstairs (4 twin beds total). The den downstairs is a great place for the kids to play or watch tv or a dvd while parents enjoy some quiet time upstairs in the great room, on the large back deck with outdoor speakers or on the covered front porch.

The Cabin is within close driving distance to many North Carolina ski and tubing areas - Beech Mountain, Sugar Mountain, Ski Hawksnest and Appalachian! The community of Valle Crucis with the original Mast General Store and great Valle Crucis community park along the Watauga River are a short drive down the valley for summer time swimming in the Watauga River. Banner Elk, Tyne Castle, Foscoe and Boone are all within 25 minutes of the cabin.

You are close to many fabulous activities such as horse back riding, trout fishing, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Tweetsie Railroad, skiing, tubing and hiking!



We welcome you to our Cabin and are excited about your sharing this beautiful place with us. Come stay a while!

About Sandy Kritzinger

My Husband and I have been visiting this area of the Blue Ridge mountains for over 11 years and decided to build a second home in this peaceful yet activity rich area. We have two young children and love to bring them here to enjoy nature and taking part in activities like skiing, snow tubing, sledding, trout fishing and hiking! We look forward to making lots of great memories with our family and friends at the cabin!

Sandy Kritzinger purchased this cabin in 2010

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from this awesome home! It was plenty of room for 4 adults and 4 kids. We had the best time sledding, skiing, and tubing. It is a short drive to all activities...but when you are at the cabin with the gorgeous views and immaculate décor, you won't want to leave!!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Lazy K is a beautiful cabin with everything you need for a nice, relaxing vacation. It had snowed prior to our arrival and the views were amazing! The kitchen had everything we needed. The entertainment center was impressive with Bluetooth capability and speakers outside where we could listen to music and spend time on the deck while we cooked a low country boil. It was not far from Sugar Mountain where we enjoyed a full day of skiing. We would love to return someday and would recommend to anyone looking for a nice mountain getaway!

Excellent Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had the best trip to the Lazy K. Our two family group of 8 had plenty of room. The cabin is equipped with two den areas which was perfect for settling down the kids with a movie while the adults enjoyed some football in the main living area. The dive up to the cabin is rugged so heed the owners warning about needing 4wd in the winter months. The pay off when you get to the top is a fabulous view that I doubt can be beat anywhere else in the area. I would definitely recommend the Lazy K for a great mountain getaway!

Amazing mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Lazy K twice over the past couple of years and have had wonderful visits both times. The cabin is incredibly comfortable with all the amenities you'd ever need - from toys for kids to gourmet kitchen supplies to surround sound speakers. The views from the deck are stunning and, while you feel surrounded by pristine nature, you're not too far from all the wonderful things to do in Valle Crucis and the surrounding towns. I can't recommend this place highly enough!
