About Carol

Carol is a Realtor in Virginia. She and her husband, Rich, welcome friends and guests at their cabin. They trust that you will love their cabin as much as they do

Carol purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Carol chose North Carolina

After years of visiting the High Country at different times of the year, they decided to buy a vacation home for that year round enjoyment of the great mountain outdoors. There is something here for everyone and for all different ages! This cabin has a perfect location to the ski hills, to the towns, and the hiking trails and all the other places that the High Country has to offer.....while it is up on the mountain side away from it all.

What makes this cabin unique

The privacy, the fire pit, the hot tub, and the peaceful setting of this cabin just makes this cabin special. Having coffee on the deck looking over the rhododendrons plants and the trees in the morning is Carol's favorite...for the savoring moments of watching and listening to the mountain scenery. This is truly something that you do not get at home.

Nice, but a challenge to find in the dark for first time guests.

  • 4 of 5

This place worked fine for my family as we celebrated my Dad's​ 80th birthday... Only wish we had warmer weather and more time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review and I hope next time you are able to come and stay a week in the later spring or summer to get that warmer weather and longer stay in the mountains. We do have flood lights all around the cabin and lights on the driveway that are solar powered. However, I agree it might be better to plan your arrival the first day during some lighted hours since street lights are not typical on the mountain roads.

The house is good size for a big group and very nice on the inside everything was very clean and plenty of things supplied for the trip to start you off . It's a beautiful area for vacation . Only small complaint which is more like a suggestion the owner a lot of good games at the house but there is things missing from everyone of them .

Got to see snow . My son loved running around outside we made a few fires and everyone loved it !!

Great time !! Would definitely go again !!

This property is wonderful. Very large home with all amenities.

  • 4 of 5

We planned a trip with 4 other couples to celebrate our anniversaries in the mountains. We couldn't be happier with our choice to rent this beautiful home. From the porch it had views of the mountain. The hottub was great as well. It was close to all the local entertainment and ski lodges. Unfortunately our plans to ski and snow tubing were cut short by the weather but we did get to zip line at Hawksnest which was a blast. The seller was so helpful and was very quick to answer any questions we had. I would recommend this home for anyone wanting to stay in the banner elk or Boone area. Thank you Carol.

Owner's Response: It is wonderful that we have many area things to do so that if it doesn't snow enough for skiing that you are able to find other activities to do. Our cabin is centrally located to get to most all activities whether in Boone, Banner Elk, or Blowing Rock, etc. Hope to hear from you for a future visit!

Weekend in the Mountains

  • 4 of 5

What a great weekend. Two families come together for a traditional Christmas Tree weekend. The cabin was perfect except the fireplaces ran out of gas. DO NOT GO TO TAYLOR TREE FARM. Trees are seriously overgrown and the place is on it's last leg. All in all the cabin is a great place to gather a large group of people. Very quiet with all the amenities. We will be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review and we do hope that you return for a future stay. The gas fireplaces did not run out of gas; the pilot light may have gone out. We wished that you would have called us, so that we may assist you. We do provide information to our guests prior to arrival so that they may print helpful information for their stay; we provide detailed directions on the use of the fireplace at the cabin, and we provide our phone number for guests so that they may call us in case of questions that they may have on working anything at the cabin, especially the fireplace since some guests do not have experience with a gas fireplace. We love that you all had a nice time and I am sure that next time will be great too. We are not affiliated with any Christmas tree farm.
