Our names are Dell & Ina Bolick. We have been married for 52 years and have lived on this property where Dell was raised for 45 years. We have 6 children, 11 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. We are both semi-retired, Dell being a crane operator and I am a potter. We both enjoy spending time with our family. Dell is a hunter and I enjoy working in my flowers.
Ina Bolick purchased this cabin in 2006
The older part of this cabin was first used as a barn. Built in Montgomery County NC, it is believed to have been in the late
1800’s to very early 1900’s.
My daddy, M.L. Owens bought the barn from a family member of the original owner in the late 1970’s. He took it down and moved it to his and mama’s property at Owens Pottery in Seagrove, NC and rebuilt it there. After his death in 2003 my brothers and sisters gave us the cabin. We numbered each log as we took it down and moved it here in 2004. We began rebuilding it in 2006 with a new addition. After five years of hard but loving work, we completed the cabin restoration in August of 2011.
The land that it stands on was given to us by Dell’s dad and mama, Vernon and Macie Bolick. All of the land surrounding us here has been in the Bolick family for many generations. We are proud of our heritage.
The name “Viola’s Cabin” is in Loving Memory of my sister Viola Owens Brady, who’s dream was to have a mountain cabin. Viola passed away in 1989 before that dream was possible. We wanted to share her dream with others who love the mountains as much as we do.
We are located just 3 short miles from shopping, restaurants, skiing and many other area attractions so no matter what you choose to do on your vacation, you won't have to travel too far. I enjoy the peace and quiet of the morning on my front porch with a cup of coffee. Listening the the crickets at night and going for a walk in the evening.
All of the previous reviews are completely accurate. I write this on the front porch of the cabin as the rooster crows and the chickens walk by. Living and working in the hustle and bustle of the city this property is such a breath of literally fresh air. Walking into the cabin is like going back to the simple life. So clean and comfy. Craftsmanship of cabin unique.
History of property such a great story. Location is very close to Main Street Blowing Rock. One of my best vacation locations ever to disconnect from day to day life.
My husband and I just returned from our mountain vacation. The cabin was so nice. It was very clean and just felt like home. The owner was very nice and worked hard to ensure that we were comfortable. It is located on the outskirts of town. It takes about 10 mins to get to Blowing Rock, but the short drive is well worth the peacefulness you feel when you return after a long day out exploring the beautiful mountains.
This little cabin is so amazing. My wife and I stayed here for a weekend for our anniversary and couldn't have asked for anything better. The cabin was perfect, the location was perfect and the owner was so polite. I would recommend anyone to stay here, and we cannot wait to be able to come back. Thank you so much for having us.
My wife, 2 daughters and I stayed here for a couple of nights as we visited Tweetsie and Boone. We enjoyed every minute of it. This was remote enough to feel like your were back in the 1920's yet had modern amemnities and easy access to Blowing Rock and Boone. My girls loved the roosters, goats and cows. Both mornings we were greeted by a different wandering dog that just wanted to hangout for 20 minutes and then moved on to another visit. Can't wait to get back. Thanks for making this gem available to us. God bless you.
My husband and I stayed in this lovely cabin for three nights. Our plan was to relax a little in the cabin and do a lot of sightseeing and eating in Blowing Rock and surrounding towns. When we realized we would actually be snowed in for our entire trip, we packed a cooler full of groceries and prepared to be snowed in. This is THE perfect cabin to be snowed in. Despite, the -6 windchill, we were so warm and cozy! We read a lot of books and went sledding. We were so relaxed and peaceful. The views were perfect. Ina called and offered to pick up groceries for us and when it was time for us to leave, two very sweet teenage boys helped us get our car unstuck from the snow so we could make it home. The hospitality shown really impressed us. Do yourself a favor and stay here. It was so clean and cozy.
Hello, Had a wonderful girls weekend with my mother and sister. We spent three nights at this wonderful cabin. When you walk in you can just feel the love. It reminds you of going to grandmas. The mountain view from the porch is very nice. We even had a momma deer and 2 fawns come up in the yard. Sitting in the swing watching the goats and chickens took us back to our childhood. Mrs. Ina the owner is the sweetest thing. Enjoyed talking with her and her sister over at the pottery shop across the street. Love my soup bowls I bought. Looking forward to going back.
