Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom 3 Bath w/Mountain Views, Loft & Gameroom

*** PRISTINE HOME !! ***

Come enjoy some time away in this luxury home - beautifully constructed with post & beam architecture and wrapped in poplar bark siding.

Walk into the tile foyer, drop your gear and catch your breath as you notice log railings, unique timber architecture, 2-story vaulted tongue in groove wood ceiling, and open living areas. Head right out the back doors onto the secluded top deck to take in the gorgeous mountain view.

When you step back into the house, check out our fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops, stainless appliances, and a window to the world. The farm house table seats 10+ and there are 4 rustic bar stools at the counter. Fresh mountain air will invite you outside to eat at the huge picnic table.

In the den, imagine yourself snuggling into the generous sectional couch with a good book, or grabbing a remote and watching something on the included Netflix subscription (Roku included on all TVs!).

Walk behind the 2 story stacked stone fireplace to get to the first master bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, beautiful king sized, white pine bed, and private access to the deck. The master bath has everything you need including a Jacuzzi tub, double sinks, granite counter, tile floors and natural stone tile walk-in shower.

The second bedroom on the main level has a queen sized bed and a private entrance to a full bathroom--finished with granite and a tiled shower/bath combination.

When you look up to the vaulted ceiling, the log railing will invite you to check out the loft playroom. Here the kids will love the TV (Netflix and xBox included) and play space next to the bunk room furnished with 4 twin beds.

When you are ready, head downstairs to find the second master, another bedroom and the game room all with access to the expansive lower deck. This king master has a private sitting area and en-suite bathroom with a brushed stone tile shower and granite counters for the sink and vanity table. The other huge bedroom on this floor has 2 queen sized log beds and a flat screen TV.

The game room is made for hours of fun and includes a full-size air hockey table ready for your tournament! Prefer a sit-down game? How about cards at the poker table? Maybe you brought DVDs, or you'd like to watch a movie on Netflix (don't forget it's included!)?

Make sure to save time for outdoor living. We have over 1,400 square feet of deck space where you will love being outdoors relaxing in the hammock, having a picnic or grilling your dinner. Don't forget to head down into the back yard, where you will find benches and a fire pit - perfect for making s’mores!

Where ever you go in our home you are going to feel welcomed, relaxed and pampered. No need to head to the store the minute you arrive--your beds are made, your towels are ready and we've got paper products and basic supplies there for you.

Note, the walkway from the driveway to the front door has only 3 stairs, so with two of the bedrooms on that main level it is ideal for people with limited mobility.

This is a small neighborhood with a large 2+ acre property which provides full privacy from neighbors without feeling isolated.

Our home is conveniently located off Hwy 105 and 4 miles to Boone, 7 miles to Blowing Rock, 6 miles to Appalachian Ski Mountain, 7 miles to Tweetsie Railroad, 12 miles to Hawksnest and about 15 miles to both Beech and Sugar Mountain with easy highway access to all. While 4WD is always recommended during winter months, it is not required for access to this home.

About 5 Boys Mt. Retreat

With 5 boys between 2 families who couldn't resist buying some mountain property? Our 2 families purchased this home in April 2012 and we've really enjoyed making this home a relaxing destination with lots of special touches. We love getting away to 5 Boys Retreat and we are sure you will too!

5 Boys Mt. Retreat purchased this cabin in 2012

Why 5 Boys Mt. Retreat chose Boone

When we drove just a few minutes from downtown Boone, and found this unique post and beam home nestled in the trees, we knew right away this was the place for us! We wanted a place that let us spread out a little, but also gave us a place to gather. We like to cook for our crowd, so we needed a big kitchen. We were looking for nature, so appreciated the mountain view and deck that feels like a tree house. This home had it all. At the same time, we also have fun wandering around Blowing Rock, skiing at Sugar Mountain, or doing the zipline at Hawk's Nest.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5 Boys made our 3 families sooo happy. Your home is perfect for vacation, especially Christmas. The views are spectacular and the house is warm and cozy. We can't thank you enough for sharing your family home with our families.

Best girl’s weekend ever!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at the cabin. In total we had 13 ladies who attended the Beth Moore conference. We had plenty of room and no one felt like they were on top of each other. We could have used another shower simply because some of us had to go through bedrooms when girls were sleeping to get to bathroom, but other than that everything was great. The decor is beautiful and you definitely get that cabin feel as soon as you walk in. We made a fire one night and had s’mores. Plus we cooked in one night and the kitchen had everything we needed. The owners responded immediately when we had any questions. Thanks for a wonderful stay! We hope to return again next year.

An amazing home

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about 5 Boys. Everything was exactly as pictured/ described. The views were amazing, the beds were so comfortable, and it was such a great place to have a girls weekend getaway. 10 minutes to downtown Boone and so much great hiking nearby. In particular, we were impressed with how well stocked the kitchen was. I'd gladly come back every year!

Great cabin for large group!

  • 5 of 5

We visited with multiple families. The house had plenty of space, was very well kept and the kids loved all the air hockey and the tv setup in the loft.

Fantastic ladies weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing home. It is tastefully decorated, and is warm and inviting. It was perfect for 10 of my closest girlfriends and I for the weekend. The beds and bedding were great, the kitchen has everything you could ever want and it's easily accessible to Boone and the surrounding area. I highly recommend a stay here - it will definitely be memorable!

Excellent location and well thought out

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice time here over the new year holiday. It was very close to everything you could need and a very short drive to Blowing Rock. Roads were not as treacherous as other cabins we've stayed at. The house was well appointed and thoughtfully stocked. There were blankets by the fire place and kitchen had all amenities. It was really well set out for our family, which included small children. There were even toys and books to keep our kids entertained when they had tired of the cool air hockey table and card games at the card table. The use of Netflix was not something I would have considered important but given the temperatures and the fact that we stayed in a few days, it was excellent!

Beautiful home and view

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 14 stayed at 5 Boys Retreat for Christmas week. Everything in the house was perfect. We cooked all dinners in and were never short of cooking supplies. Then kitchen was well stocked of all the dishes, pots, pans you could want. The quality of furnishings were top notch as well. Because we are all family, the three bathrooms was never a big deal. It might be if it were 5 couples. Everyone in our party was pleased with the house. We will return!
