About the property

2500 sqft, Sleeps 10, 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, firepit, private river community

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 Foosball, 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.

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. Because I do not take a security deposit, a credit card will be required for security authorization before check in. The owner will contact you for that directly. 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!

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!

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

Bearfoot Hideaway is truly our home away from home! My family and I have used this cabin as our own personal refuge for years and our favorite family memories have taken place between those walls. Trish (the owner) is a delight to work with and is very accommodating. There is a whole floor full of fun for the kiddos, and a nice relaxing large main floor for the adults. The best of both worlds. Oh, and don't forget about the hot tub with mountain views. Although, many might only think of Boone to be a place to visit in the Wintertime, this cabin and area have SO much to offer every season of the year. We love it so much our daughter plans on getting married in area this Fall! Thankfully, we have our go-to home away from home to accommodate us that weekend!

Beautiful Views Inside and Out!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with some friends and we absolutely loved it, it was close to the center of town yet still had that log cabin isolated feel. The house was in pristine condition and the owners were very accessible and courteous when ever we had any questions. Highly recommend staying here and I am looking forward to renting the cabin again!

All the comforts of home. very charming and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay and found this cabin very clean and nicely decorated. The kitchen had all we could need. There were lots of games, books and activities to keep our family busy even on a rainy day. The teenagers loved the foosball table. The adults loved the fire pit and fireplace as well as large screen tvs with NFL Sunday ticket. We would recommend this cabin and found the owner very responsive.

Lovely Weekend Getaway at this beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We love this cabin! It is our second time renting it and we have always been very pleased! It is a very clean, non-smoking, cabin that we took our whole family to (7) for a birthday celebration. We love that it is still close to cities like Blowing Rock and Boone, but yet feels out of the way of those cities to enjoy quietness. The game room was a hit with our children! We are looking forward to coming back and visiting the Bearfoot Hideaway again!

Unbelievable Experience

  • 5 of 5

The best thing about this experience was that what you see in the pictures is what you get. It is so disappointing to book a place expecting one thing and then getting there and realizing that the place is a dump. The cabin was very well kept and clean. I stayed there for a week with a few family members and we did not want to leave. I still miss drinking my coffee on the patio every morning. We all made a promise to make this place part of our family vacations. We cannot wait to go back.
