Nestled in nature, this 3bd/2ba log cabin ranch home is the perfect combination of modern convenience with old world charm. The majestic long range view is breathtaking! Relax and enjoy family and friends from the wrap around deck complete with rockers, chairs, and a picnic table for serving dinner and drinks.
The massive wood burning stone fireplace in the den creates an atmosphere of relaxed family times. Remember when you enjoyed evenings with the family playing board games or cards? We have those for your use to reconnect with those times and make new memories. Of course , the new 42' flatscreen TV with expanded cable and DVD remind us that modern conveniences are great, too.

Our cabin is located on the last road on Sugar Mountain facing Beech Mountain. The land below is undeveloped and the only home you see behind the property is the little farm (complete with red barn) at the base of the mountain. Remember when you could hear the birds and the wind when you walked outside without other man made sounds? You will find that here. If you hear a car, it will be coming down the driveway !
We are convenient to all of the restaurants and attractions in Banner Elk, Blowing Rock and Boone. There are always so many things to do in the Highlands that you could stay for weeks and never repeat your activities!!!

Carole Blocker purchased this cabin in 1999
Always vacationed in the area when the kids were growing up. One of our sons was on scholarship as a baseball player at Appalacian State University. We purchased this with the intent of selling it after his career at ASU. That was 12 years ago and I doubt we would ever sell our cabin. It is used by our whole family and many friends as their vacation rental. Many use it repeatedly.
We go as often as we can. It is perfect for family gatherings or when my wife and I just want to get away. After all these years we still get excited about our time here. This is where you can totally relax, unwind, read a book, enjoy fabulous restaurants, take a nature walk, shop, antique, visit the Mast General Store, go horseback riding, ride the Blue Ridge Parkway, picnic, hike, fish, ski, play golf, play tennis, listen to bluegrass, eat barbeque at Woodlands Barbeque and enjoy the nightly music, see a play, browse art shops, go to Kelwin's for ice cream and fudge, look for furniture, drive to see the Bristol 500, go to craft shows, shop the pottery shops, go to the outlet mall, etc., etc., etc.
Bedrooms were good size and overall accommodations were great...would recommend
My friends and I wanted a nice cabin for a three night stay to relax and enjoy each other. We enjoyed cooking, drinking wine, and sitting by the fire sharing stories and playing games. The cabin had everything we needed to prepare our meals and enjoy ourselves. It was just a short drive down the mountain to get groceries or enjoy a nice dinner at a local restaurant. We also had a great time at the local adventure place call the edge of the world where we went whitewater rafting and spent another day hiking trails nearby. Great place in a great town and location on the mountain! Can see myself taking my family next time!
My friends put me in charge of finding a cabin with a view for our weekend getaway... And after staying at Carole's cabin, they were so happy that they decided to put me in charge every time! Very happy customers! Gorgeous views, private and peaceful atmosphere, comfortable accommodations, responsive owner. We hope to be back!
Property was tucked away nicely on top of Sugar. The views from the porch were breath taking. Will definitely be back with the family.
Carole's cabin was well-kept, clean, and ideally located for skiing/snowboarding on Sugar Mountain. Carole was very helpful and available by cell phone. The cabin is stocked with all the essentials. We only had to purchase firewood at a local grocery store. Four-wheel drive and snow chains/tires are needed if you plan to stay during snow months. We highly recommend choosing this cabin for your stay.
