About Jeffrey And Patricia VanHoose

Family owned business since year 2000.

Why Jeffrey And Patricia VanHoose chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

This is a great property. Peaceful setting. Overlooking fishing pond. Great for Christmas, Thanksgiving any Holidays. We are 2.5 miles from Boone and 10 minutes from Blowing Rock NC. Just minutes from town.

What makes this cabin unique

Great Location, but just minutes away from Boone. Very peaceful sitting on the deck overlooking fishing pond. Listening to the locust at night along with the bull frogs from pond. Also campfire pit at pond is relaxing and fun for the kids.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful cabin! Everything was perfect! We went to Boone for shopping at the Mast General Store & Amex. The snow tubing at Jonas Ridge and everyone had a blast. Bummed there was no snow but had fun hiking to Linville Falls.

Thank you Again!

Quiet and Relaxing with Modern Conveniences

  • 5 of 5

Overall, I highly recommend renting the Mountaineer Cabin. It is isolated and quiet but it is close to the city conveniences of Boone (10 minute drive) and Blowing Rock (20-25 minute drive). It is also close to the Blue Ridge Parkway (entrance off US 421). You will hear many sounds of nature here but not much in the way of city noises. The cabin was roomy and everything worked well. There is plenty of room for 6 to 8 people. The hot tub was relaxing and the Wi Fi connection was excellent. The road to the private drive is paved and though the private drive is gravel, it was in good shape. The gas fireplace worked well. The fishing pond is a short walk and is good for largemouth bass fishing. There are some large catfish in the pond and some fat blue gills as well. We also made some new friends at the pond, Elvis and Little Elvis, two ducks who live at the pond. Elvis will come right to you looking for food. Little Elvis is a smaller duck and more skittish but you can feed him (from a bit of a distance) as well. We saw several deer around the cabin each day we were there. The owners were very helpful with all of the questions we had. Again, I highly recommend renting this cabin.

Relaxing stay in the Mountains!

  • 5 of 5

Me and 3 co-workers spent the weekend in this beautiful cabin. It was very relaxing and we enjoyed our much needed time away! The cabin was very roomy and very comfortable. It included everything we needed. One thing I found very nice to find was discount cards for local stores, that's very considerate. We found the pond to be very beautiful and peaceful. The cabin isn't located to far from anything you would want to see or do in Boone or Blowing Rock. We mostly shopped! We really wanted to get in the Hot Tub it was so warm, clean, and inviting but the wind was blowing so very bad that weekend we didn't. We would highly recommend this Rental!
