Overview

About the property

Cottage, Studio + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Beautifully decorated mountain cottage in Yonahlossee. Before your arrival, housekeeping will have the lights on for you, thermostat set, and one final check to make sure we have done our part right. This is the perfect cottage for couples during short visits to the high country. The pillow top king bed, private setting, and on-site fine dining will add to the enjoyment of your stay.

Downtown Blowing Rock is a 5 minute drive at 35 mph. along Shulls Mill Road. Don't worry, you won't pass any abandoned school buses or anything like that. Shulls Mill Rd. is a beautiful drive through National Park (Moses Cone) property with pockets of privately owned gorgeous homes.

Ample paved level parking and level entry.

About Mark Eckhart

Our family of 4 loves to come up from Charlotte, NC for quick getaways to the Blue Ridge Mountains. We enjoy spending the entire day outside hiking, fishing, and also 'tipping around' the village of Blowing Rock. We always look forward to dinner time as dining options are endless. We've been exploring Blowing Rock / Boone for roughly 8 years now and still find trails, restaurants, and unique shops that we've overlooked previously.

Mark Eckhart purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Mark Eckhart chose Boone

We chose to buy our cottage in Yonahlossee for a couple of reasons. First we found ourselves traveling up to Blowing Rock so frequently that buying just made financial sense and eliminated the hassle of pricey, overbooked hotel rooms. Second, we were not interested in buying 'just another cabin in the woods'. We chose Yonahlossee Resort and Club because of the beautiful protected setting located so close to the village of Blowing Rock. With our management staff, we make one call and are assured that upon our arrival, we have fresh linens, the lights are turned on, and our property has been inspected one last time to make sure it conforms to the high standards of the resort. No worries or surprises.

What makes this cottage unique

Location, Location, Location. Quiet, peaceful nights, and everything the Blowing Rock area has to offer in the daytime. We often leave the sliding glass doors open at night in the spring, summer, and fall to enjoy the cool breezes and nature's melodies.

Wonderful Stay At The Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking to get away from our busy lives for the holidays, and we are so glad we booked this place. We stayed the week after Christmas and we were able to relax and get the feel of a quiet cabin in the mountains. The cabin was really clean and cozy. The location was perfect, wooded and plenty of wildlife but also just a short drive to historic downtown Blowing Rock, groceries, the outlets etc. On one of the days that we were there, we decided to stay in for the entire day and were never bored at all because the cabin had everything that we needed. There is a gym nearby (less than a minute walk away from the cabin door, literally) if you want to work out any time of the day, there are restaurants as well near by if you don’t feel like going all the way downtown. If you are looking for activities without going for a drive, there are hiking trails, fishing, etc. Best of all, we chose this place because it is pet-friendly. We had our dog with us - schnauzer, and there is a lot of areas where we can walk him for exercise. The people that we met in the neighborhood were all very nice and pet owners/dog lovers as well. The owner, Mark was very easy to communicate with, answered all my questions, gave very clear instructions and useful suggestions. We will definitely stay here again.

Romantic Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend staying in this cabin!! It was Sept but the fireplace was nice and the cabin was the perfect size and the furnishings were beautiful!! I enjoyed a long soak in the jacuzzi tub! Great location just mins from downtown Blowing Rock and hiking. Owner was great at suggesting restaurants and hiking trails. The Gamekeeper restaurant (basically right across the street) was delicious and the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary! Would highly recommend the cabin and the restaurant!!

Perfect Mountain Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend in July and LOVED this place. It is clean, comfortable and quiet. The unit itself is very cozy, just perfect for a romantic getaway. The king bed is very comfortable, the bathroom is very roomy (two sinks) and the shower/water pressure is great, there's a functional kitchen area with a sink and small refrigerator for keeping your snacks and drinks cold. The location is perfect for exploring the Blowing Rock, Boone, Grandfather Mountainarea. Minutes to each of those areas and of course all the beautiful scenery and hiking trails. Great restaurants nearby (Gamekeeper across the street). Great amenities on site such as an indoor pool, indoor and outdoor tennis courts and just beautiful scenery. After staying there we loved it so much we wanted to come back the following weekend but it was already booked but we'll definitely come here again. The owner, Mark, was also great to work with and he spent a lot of time via both emails and phone calls answering all my questions and giving us great recommendations for things to do in the area. I've rented a lot of VRBO places around the country and this is one of the best!

Great escape for two! And you can bring your dog!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in this cottage for 6 days and 5 nights and didn't want to leave! And we were even able to bring our dog!

The cottage is adorable (much larger than we expected), bed is comfortable, and there is even a tree that the back porch is built around which we thought was neat. The fireplace was amazing on the cooler days and nights during our stay. With the curtains drawn, the cottage stays very dark in the early morning and this was perfect for sleeping in which was exactly what we were looking for on this relaxing trip.

There are lots of hiking trails within a short drive from the cottage and downtown Boone is less than 5-6 miles. We ate at the Gamekeeper which was an amazingly delicious meal and located very close to the cottage.

Working with the owner was easy and he answered all of our questions and emails immediately. We would come back again.

Perfect way to spend Valentine's Day and Birthday!!

  • 5 of 5

Spent three nights at Paradise to celebrate Valentine's Day and my birthday. We enjoyed it so much, that we convinced my family to drive up and stay in the neighboring unit for a night. The drive through Moses Cone was gorgeous and we spotted several deer. Yonahlossee staff was extremely helpful in suggesting restaurants and attractions. We came to go skiing and were lucky to have snow two days, but ended up enjoying sitting by the fire in the cabin, so never made it to the slopes! Blowing Rock was a quick drive, so we explored the town and boutiques and made several trips to the candy shop :-). Knights was a hearty breakfast and Gamekeeper had great ambience.

We are looking forward to our next trip and definitely plan to stay in Mark's cabin. This definitely beats staying in a hotel; more privacy and so much more cozy. Bathroom was spacious, bed extremely comfortable and everything you would need in the kitchen (if you don't need a stove). We would like to come back in the summer for hiking and take advantage of the resort's ammenities.

It was a perfect celebration weekend and can't wait to return!!
