High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4 or 6 with pull out sofa)

The Cabin is a charming spot for a respite from the 'civilized' world.

Two bedrooms each with a queen bed.

Soak in the claw foot tub.

Sit on the deck and see miles and miles of the rolling Blue Ridge Mountains.

Marvel at the number of stars and fireflies you can see at night.

Spend your days relaxing and letting your dog run on the 21 acres, or mosey down the mountain for the many many nearby activities. There will be something for everyone.

Spend your evenings snuggled inside by a fire in the fireplace built from stone gathered on the property or gather around the outdoor firepit to roast marshmallows, make smores, and tell ghost stories.

The Cabin was built in 1963. We have updated it just a bit for comfort but we treasure the place so we believe we have maintained its charm. We think you'll agree.

About The Owner

After I bought The Cabin in 1998, my husband became a mountain lover too. Being in the mountains reminds me of the old Native American, Nesmuk, who is credited with saying, 'We don't come out here to rough it. We come out here to smooth it. Things are rough enough in town.' Just driving up the road to the place creates a feeling of serenity we don't find anywhere else. We're sure you'll agree.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1998

Why The Owner chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

The location is perfect because it is isolated yet close to everything you need.

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cabin for 2 nights with my family, including 2 young children, and it was perfect! The cabin was very clean and welcoming and had just enough modern touch to make it seem very nice while still being a bit rustic. The location is great, and the walks around the cabin itself are very nice. Peg made the rental process very easy and we definitely will be returning!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent 4 nights at The Cabin in Mid-October, 2015. It was absolutely wonderful, and perfect for us! Peg made the reservation process very simple, and was readily available for any questions or concerns. The directions to The Cabin are easy to follow, and the road to it is well-maintained. It is a lovely drive, and although it appears to be out in the middle of nowhere, it is really very close to groceries and restaurants in Newland, if necessary. The view from the secluded property is beautiful.

We enjoyed spending time in and around The Cabin. The hike on the property occupied our family for a day. It is a nice little adventure. We go to the NC mountains every mid-October. Since we had already experienced and enjoyed the "tourist stuff" in years past (Tweetsie, Wooly Worm Festival, Valle Crucis Festival, Grandfather etc.), we have learned to stay outside of the main roads into the Boone/Blowing Rock area during that weekend to avoid the traffic congestion in mid-October. If going to the High Country at peak tourist time is your thing, then The Cabin is still close to the attractions, but you are in a place where you have the option to avoid the congested areas if you choose.

We enjoyed grilling out at night and hanging out around the fire pit. Backpacking with a packed picnic through part of Linville Falls and into the Gorge was awesome. Another day we went to Roan Mountain and hiked part of the Appalachian Trail at Carvers Gap. On the way home, Table Rock near Linville was close and we hiked an afternoon there.

One thing that needs mentioning is that the stairs leading to the upstairs bedroom are very narrow and steep. If you have very small children or problems with stairs and climbing, this is not for you. Our kids are older and did fine with it, but if they had been toddlers, it would have been too dangerous for them.

All of the other good reviews for The Cabin are true. Believe them. Thanks, Peg!

Perfect Mountain Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A ten minute drive from downtown Newland and you are worlds away! The convenient location is just one of the attributes of this perfectly adorable cabin. The cabin is clean, comfortable, cozy, and charming. The kitchen is well appointed and the entire cabin has been furnished and decorated with your comfort in mind. The view is spectacular and when hiking on the surrounding property, it seems as if you have the entire woods to yourself. We enjoyed both breakfast and dinner at Fabio's Italian Restaurant in Newland - great food and friendly service. However, the cabin is so perfect we wished we had brought more food to prepare on site so that we could dine "at home" and enjoy the incredible views. The kitchen is so nicely stocked that you need not pack anything other than food. My husband and I only stayed for a long weekend, but the cabin would be great for a longer rental.

I will be back!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a "girls only" weekend getaway with my daughter at The Cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I look forward to returning again in the future with my husband. I know he would love it, as well. If you're looking for cozy, rustic charm, this place has it. The cabin was immaculate and stocked with everything we needed, including campfire forks for toasting my marshmallows (thanks!) The view from the cabin is lovely and I especially enjoyed sitting on the deck in the morning with my coffee watching the fog move through the valley below. I really liked that the cabin is located by itself at the end of the road with no neighbors anywhere near. If you like quiet solitude, you get it here. We enjoyed a hike up the hill behind the cabin and walked along the ridge to the edge of a Christmas tree farm where it opened up to gorgeous views. The following day we drove to Roan Mountain and hiked the balds (Round, Jane and Grassy Ridge) at Carvers Gap, which offer spectacular mountain views, and is an easy drive from The Cabin (about 30 minutes). I highly recommend this hike if you've never been (5 miles round trip). After a long day of hiking (and hitting some nearby antique shops!), I was eager to get back to our comfy cabin. That evening we made a nice meal (the kitchen is well-stocked with dishes, utensils, pots/pans, spices, etc.) and we relaxed on the deck with a bottle of wine and a game of Scrabble. Later we enjoyed a campfire. Ahhhh, does it get any better than this? Not for me! When can I return?

Incredible Escape!

  • 5 of 5

All the previous reviews of The Cabin are true!

I sought a secluded and peaceful respite from the busy city life for a relaxing weekend and was so very lucky to have found The Cabin. Supremely secluded and serene yet still very convenient to town/groceries and all area attractions and activities. Even so, The Cabin is clean, updated and very comfortable and the views are so incredible you won't want to leave! There's nothing like sipping coffee and reading a book in the morning while taking in the cool breeze and miles of mountains in the distance! In addition, many quiet hiking trails abound directly behind The Cabin offering both spectacular vistas and cool, canopied paths. Fianlly, with plenty of property around the home and no neighbors in view, it felt like the mountain was mine alone!

Peg was quite hospitable, very responsive and made my visit perfectly seamless and easy. All in all it was an incredibly relaxing weekend and can't wait to return!

Great Getaway Weekend with Friends

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed a fun and relaxing girls getaway weekend at the cabin. The cabin was adorable, clean, and inviting. We especially enjoyed the beautiful outdoor areas and spent a couple nights around the campfire and looking at the stars from the deck. Dave and Peg are very helpful and easy to get in touch with if needed. Thanks for a great weekend!

The cabin is on 21 acres where your dog will love to run. We live on the same acreage, but you can't see one home from the other although you could walk from one to the other.

Appalachian State University in Boone which offers a fabulous summer festival of entertainment, Blowing Rock has a live theater company, Linville Gorge the 'Grand Canyon of the East' offers hiking and fly fishing in the Linville River, numerous fly fishing spots all around, the Appalachian Trail and Blue Ridge Parkway also offer spectacular hikes as does Grandfather Mountain which also offers a zoo of rescued animals including owls and bears! And don't forget the Zip Line!

There is more to do than you'll have time to do!
