Relaxing private vacation for a couple, a small family, or good friends...Or, Blue Ridge Trail Riding Vacation with your own horses! Living quarters are on one level that has only one step onto the deck (handicapped friendly, with a little help). Located on 16 mountain acres, Rolllin' N the Hay is the perfect equestrian set up: 4 riders enjoy the cypress sided two bedrooms and 4 horses enjoy the four box stalls below. Leatherwood Mountain Resort boasts 75+ miles of mountain horse trails that traverse directly through this 16 acre property. A captivating vacation: relaxing long soaks in the hot tub after a long trail ride, unobstructed mountain views from the raised deck chairs, brilliant star lit nights from the open deck (no light pollution here!); cherished moments await in the peace and solitude of this secluded mountain barn.
But don't let the horse facilities deter non-horsemen! Rollin' N the Hay is also a wonderful place for couples, small families, honeymooner's, anniversaries, or friends to get away from 'IT ALL'! Private, beautiful views, nature right outside the door, in the middle of wilderness, hiking trails, pool, tennis, fishing, and tubing are for everyone to enjoy.
Rollin N the Hay is located just off Tin Horn Road (1.8 miles from the Leatherwood Mountains security gate) and about 1/4 mile down graveled Flag Branch Road; while trailer parking is ample, the steep grade and tight turning requires a 'he-man' truck (not a wimpy truck or long rig)! Nightly board is $20 per horse, bring required shavings, hay and feed; a current health certificate from out of state horses and negative coggins for all horses is required to be shown at the Leatherwood Stables Office (closes at 5PM) in the Saddlebrook Restaurant Building at the entrance to Leatherwood. Rollin' N the Hay welcomes your other furry family members as well (pets up to 35 pounds) for a per pet fee of $50.
Rollin' N the Hay feels like stepping into an 'old shoe'. Warm cypress wood, stained glass panels, Frederick Remington cowboy prints, nature collections, your horses just below, and of course modern 'must haves' WiFi and digital television; who could ask for more to get away from the hustle and bustle of the 'real world'? Ask about partnering Rollin' N the Hay with the owner's close by log cabin, Hemlock Point and its two stall barn, to create a unique Equestrian compound for large groups of up to 10-12 guests and 6-8 horses (10% off rental rate for both homes on the same contract).

Love the quote by an unknown author: 'The Human Spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man.' Scott and Mary Helen Ellis; we love the rural life! Our passions range from the oldest town in NC on the Pamlico River to the northern NC Blue Ridge Mountains. We love all things nature: woods, wildlife, Celtic music, boating, hiking, horseback riding, crafting, gardening...and all things old: antiques, genealogy, NC's oldest town, and old legends. Give us the views across rivers, oceans and mountains to the most sophisticated views across the grand cities of the world. We wonder at the remarkable beauty and elegance in a bevy of butterflies sunning on a rock in a bold mountain stream...as opposed to the brush strokes of someone hanging on a wall, lit by a bulb, in a stuffy building...Our fervent belief is that nothing mankind can do is ever on par with what our Creator did!
Mary Helen Ellis purchased this cabin in 2007
Every year of our 30+ years of marriage, we have ventured to the NC mountains. In 1997 we made the leap of faith to purchase our property at Leatherwood Mountains Resort, appreciating the concept of stewardship in creating a human presence but maintaining the wilderness for all generations.
Our Concept: seclusion, just you and your family/friends, your horses, the beautiful wilderness all around, the long range views of the glorious mountains, peace...
Everything about the house/cabin was perfect. We will be back- and next time we are going to stay at Rollin in the Hay again- it was perfect! Thanks for a wonderful vacation!!!
We wanted to find a quiet place away from the world for a weekend, and this definitely met everything that we were looking for. It was beautiful and had everything that we could have needed if we had forgotten to bring something along. The Morning Sunrise was perfect, we even had deer playing in the yard. We got to watch the beautiful night sky from the hot tub. I think we will definitely be making this our little getaway! Thank you for letting us stay!
My wife and I have stayed at many places booked on VRBO, but this was our best experience yet. We decided last minute to get away for Thanksgiving with the kids. We called the day of travel and the owners were great to work with. Upon arrival everything was as promised in the add. The place is the perfect getaway for a couple or small family. The grounds and view are beautiful. Not only that, but the house itself had everything you would imagine having at your own home.
The only "hickup" we had was with the hot tub, but there was nothing the owners could have done about it. A part was not working right. Upon speaking to them on the phone and getting a work around we were able to make it work for our short stay. Even though we did not complain and we were still beyond happy with everything, the owners gave us a small refund for our trouble. I can honestly say that I have never experienced that kind of kindness in the form of customer service. I did not ask for anything, but they felt bad about a minor inconvenience. I highly recommend staying at places that are owned and operated but people lie this!
What an awesome place to stay. We wanted a private location to relax with our 2 dogs and this cabin delivered. The whole experience was great and hassle free. The cabin has great views of the mountain and fun hiking paths. We will definitely be back!
My wife and I decided to try out the mountains and we loved it. Was very private and peaceful. Was located convenient to Blowing Rock and Boone so we made a day trip out of it. Highly recommend.
Although I have stayed in this amazing property multiple times, I always have a marvelous time at Rollin' in the Hay! Due to the weather, we did not get to ride our horses as much as we'd planned; however, we went exploring and discovered a wonderful cafe in Buffalo Cove! As always, our horses loved the large, padded stalls and enjoyed hanging out with their humans whenever we went downstairs! Thank you for building such an awesome property and for making it available to grateful vistors like me! We will be back soon!! Peace and Blessings to you both!

If you are bringing horses, there is an extra liability form for all riders to be completed. Due to truck and trailer navigation on the drive around the barn, only a 2 horse trailer is allowed. There is Leatherwood Mountains horse trailer parking near the stables at the base of the mountain (within 2 miles of Rollin' N the Hay cabin/barn). Call with instructions for longer horse trailers.
