About Carol

Carol and Rich love their home away from home. They welcome friends and guests at their cabin and hope that guests love the cabin as much as they do. Having family from all over the East coast, it is a great middle spot for all to enjoy.

Carol purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Carol chose Vilas

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 with beautiful views and peace & quiet.

What makes this cabin unique

The mountain views, 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 mountains, looking down at the rhododendrons plants 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.

Plenty of Room in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Had a girls weekend with 10 people and we had plenty of room! Cozy fireplace in the living room provided a great place to relax and catch up. The view from the porch and hot tub is beautiful. House is located close to Boone and Blowing Rock and we popped into town for dinner with ease.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place. Close to Boone and far enough up the mountain to get the full "cabin in the woods" experience. Place is laid out perfectly. We had two families stay (9 people total) and there was plenty of room for everyone. Between the gas fireplaces inside and the fire pit outside we stayed warm even on one of the coldest times of year. Loved that the whole place, walls, ceilings and floors were all wood. Gave it that true cabin feel. Carol, the owner, was great to communicate with through email and the VRBO app. If we get a chance to visit this area again in the future we'll be looking into renting this place again for sure.

The cabin is lovely. Our families of 8 adults & 5 children had excellent accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our family reunion. Room for everyone & all the comforts of home. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is amazingly equipped with everything one needs to cook at home. We all enjoyed the hot tub and the view is awesome.

The house is beautifully decorated and everything the owners say would be provided actually was. We wanted for nothing. In addition the house was extremely clean & all appliances were in working order.

Absolutely no complaints and will definitely plan to rent again.
