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.
In keeping with the peaceful setting of The Cabin and the surrounding acreage, the discharging of any firearms is strictly forbidden on the property. We appreciate your cooperation.

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 location is perfect because it is isolated yet close to everything you need.
Absolutely loved our Labor Day weekend here. Beautiful property and views! Will definitely come back.
The cabin is an excellent place to stay for a vacation. Relaxing, quiet, and secluded with all the necessities and a large amount of charm as well. The view is just lovely- you'll never want to leave the porch. Peg is super-responsive, gives very clear instructions and offers helpful information.
This place was amazing. Rented for three nights for myself and two teenage sons. The cabin was the perfect size for the three of us. My youngest enjoyed the sofa and the two bedrooms were very nice. The loft stairs are a bit steep, so take your time and use the handrail. We enjoyed having the windows up and hearing the rain drip off the roof. We used the AC only briefly and the temperatures stayed in the low 70's the entire time with a nice breeze. Having the washer/dryer was a bonus too. The firepit was so nice and we had a nice campfire each night and were able to sit outside with no mosquitos bothering us. It was perfect. We enjoyed the trails behind the cabin and got a nice workout. The last section of the road is a bit steep, but is graveled and if you use low gear and maintain speed it is no issue. It gets easier each time you go up. One thing to note, when you first enter the path off the main road and get to the single wide, keep going up the path. It kinda looks like it ends at the single wide, but bear slightly right and keep going. This is the nicest place we ever stayed and plan to be back next year. The owners live very close by and are always a text or call away. Thanks to Peg for making things so easy. Oh, the view off the front deck is something to be seen. We will be back!!!!!
This is a charming cabin in a perfect spot. All the other reviews were true. The cabin is small and efficient, tastefully decorated, thoughtfully appointed with an unbelievable view and spacious setting. Our two dogs loved the cool mornings and evenings, hikes and freedom to be off-leash! We had so much fun hiking the property, hiking Linville Falls, swimming in the river at Valle Crucis community park and lunch from the Ham Shoppe, barbecue from Old Hampton, wine tastings at Linville Falls winery, exploring the local ski areas, Beech and Sugar Mountain and nearby towns, Boone, Banner Elk, Blowing Rock, and so much more. And each evening we sipped wine on the deck, watching the clouds roll over the mountains while our exhausted dogs slept. The owner's info was so helpful and spot on. We had a perfect visit and getaway from the DC heat. Thanks Peg!
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!
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!
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!
