Overview

High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2400 sqft, Sleeps 10, 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, firepit, private river community

Welcome to BEAR Foot Hideaway! Country charm and comfort is what you get at Bear Foot Hideaway. Located in a FAMILY oriented community in BOONE, a short stroll from the meandering New River, this ONE+ ACRE authentic log cabin has all the conveniences you could ask for, complete with a rustic atmosphere and adorable country bear theme. Bring the kids and swim and tube on our river, hike our trails and bike our railroad grade roads alongside the New River. The cabin is striking with vaulted pine LOG WALLS and exposed-beam CATHEDRAL CEILINGS. Comfy seating and gorgeous mountain views through the huge windows and doors. Enjoy the STONE WOOD-BURNING FIREPLACE or play pool, ping pong or darts. The fully-equipped kitchen has a large breakfast bar and dining area. 2 WRAPAROUND DECKS for dining & grilling, Adirondack chairs and gliders with plenty of seating to enjoy the sounds of the river and drink in the mountain views. Bird-watching is a favorite activity from the decks. All 4 bedrooms are charming and spacious.

A PRIVATE sunken SPA is located on the lower deck for you to enjoy after a day of hiking, skiing and mountain activities. Have a real outdoor campfire or cookout in the FIREPIT.

Very private community, but close to all activities.

River Community: Bearfoot Hideaway is in a private FAMILY oriented river community with river access, and maintained river walks. We are NOT in Zionville, there is another cabin very UNLIKE ours in Zionville. Please do not get us confused.

Nature at its best: Relax and enjoy the gorgeous views or watch the birds and woodland animals from one of our huge wrap around decks, or while soaking in our sunken hot tub. Then dry off and warm yourself by our outdoor firepit, or our stone fireplace.

if you are so inclined, please feed the birds and hummingbirds with the food we have in the cabin.

Underground Power lines: Bearfoot Hideaway is located in a community with underground power lines! The benefit if which is that the cabin does not have power outages when the weather is inclement, as other homes in the area experience frequently. During the blizzard of '09 when 88% of Watauga county was powerless, (some for more than 4 days), Bearfoot Hideaway did not experience even one split second of power loss.

We also provide free long distance calling and trash pickup which is something you will NOT find in most cabins in the mountains.

*Please note, valid phone number and email required for all inquiries. Please check your entries before submitting. A credit card will be required for security deposit. A person 25 years of age or older must be the responsible party and must be in attendance in the cabin.

About Trish

As 2 business professionals, we never had time to destress, until we purchased our cabin 'Bear Foot Hideaway'. I am an avid gardener and birdwatcher, and my husband loves to hike. The crisp clean mountain air and nature sounds from the woods around our cabin make us feel as if we escaped the world. The starlit sky at night is only overshadowed by the June fireflies or the roaring fire we build in our outdoor firepit. Bear Foot Hideaway is our piece of heaven in the Blue Ridge Mountains!

Trish purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Trish chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

We fell in love with our log cabin the moment we walked onto the deck. The mountain views and authentic log construction was exactly what we were looking for.

What makes this cabin unique

We love mountain biking and hiking along the Blue Ridge. Summer is a great time for tubing on our very own New River. Living far away, it is not so easy staying on top of it, but I take TLC of my garden whenever we get a chance to be there, and the flowers are absolutely GORGEOUS! The Autumn is also a favorite time of year to be in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The changing leaves of Fall, along with the cooler temperatures makes for a heavenly getaway. From the time the first snowflake falls, until late March skiing, Boone is a winter wonderland. There are Arts & Crafts Festivals all year long.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks again for sharing your beautiful cabin with our family. The cabin was extremely clean and well-stocked. The location was also great. It was somewhat secluded while still being close enough to shopping/activities. There was so little traffic by the house that our children were able to sled in the roadway by the house.



We would definitely rent this house again!



Thanks,

Rebecca and Family

Wonderful location for a weekend with family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bearfoot Hideaway for my nephew's graduation weekend from Appalachian State. The cabin gave each family a separate living area and there was plenty of room for our family game nights! The cabin is very close to Boone and the university. We loved our experience!

Inaccurate Description

  • 1 of 5

When our family searched for a mountain home we were specifically looking for a property and location where we would have river access.

We assumed that we would be able to fish, walk and play in the river since the owner advertised the property with direct river access and river trails to walk. The property is not on the river. There are other homes in the neighborhood that are on the river, however, there is not any common area in the neighborhood where someone who is renting this home can safely walk down to the river. We met several neighbors who were very nice and gave us directions to other locations where we could drive to fish and go tubing. While they were quite helpful, we did not want to drive to other locations to enjoy the river.

We were very disappointed. In addition, there was dog hair on the floor and dishes in the cabinets that were dirty. I would not recommend this property.

Owner's Response: I'm not surprised by this false review. I had to contact this guest for missing items and exploding fireworks inside our home. I had to charge her for damages. Our description does not claim direct river access. There is a short walk to the river. I explained to this guests mother a few times that the river access is aside the bridge. I was very clear. I would never have this guest or family in my property again.

Our family get away

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is everything you see on the site, it's cozy, clean and we all felt very comfortable there. The owners keep in touch via texting and were accommodating with our requests. We enjoyed the beautiful views, quite area and the surrounding attractions. We visited blue ridge park and did some amazing hiking and went snow tubing at sugar mountain. Great eating in the town of Boone as well. We recommend this vacation to all who enjoy the mountains and the outdoors

Awesome!! We Cannot Wait To Rent Again!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cabin for a friends weekend getaway! There for 8 adults and 6 children ages 4 and under. After booking we thought we were crazy and would never have enough room.... However we were far from right!! Barefoot Hideaway has 4 spacious bedrooms, a nice sized living room and great sized basement. Although we were there with other families we still had our own personal space within our rooms which was very appealing. The decks were nice and big and the kitchen was well stocked. We cooked at the cabin each meal and had enough room at the dinner table and bar for everyone to fit. The location was convenient but far enough away that you feel complete serenity. Trish was so helpful, quick to respond and available by phone if needed. We cannot wait to go back and have already planned to make this an annual friends getaway!!
