Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath, 3 Levels, 2 Expansive Decks, Game Room & Loft, Large Jacuzzi

Welcome to Starry Nights Lodge, a new Boone log cabin, perched high atop a hill with magnificent long-range views, landscaped with stacked-stone terraces, and a circular driveway with plenty of room for parking. Best of all, you are just 30 minutes to the ski resorts and only 10 minutes from historic downtown Boone and Valle Crucis.

This Tahoe style house has lots of room to spread out. There are three levels of indoor living space and two levels of large decks. The main level of the house features an open floor plan with dining and living areas and a fully equipped kitchen. One wall contains plenty of large windows leading out to a wide upper deck and looks upon the rolling hills and mountains beyond. On the deck, you will find an oversized picnic table, custom rockers with lumbar support, and an outdoor grill. Back inside, the first level is assembled in an Arts and Crafts style, with hardwood flooring and natural finished tongue-and-groove paneling in the cathedral ceiling. The living area contains a stone fireplace with remotely controlled gas logs and features Van Earp lamps, leather sofas and armchair. The dining area comfortably seats eight. Beyond the living area is the master bedroom with three windows set into warmly paneled walls, a king bed piled with pillows, 19' flatscreen TV and a master bath.

Meticulously crafted stairs and banisters in naturally finished pine lead from the main floor to the loft above, containing a futon and a 46 inch television, perfect for a movie, curling up with a good book, or practicing yoga.

A game room on the lower level is equipped with a Foosball table, a chess table and 36' flat screen television. Just off the game-room is a bedroom with queen sized bed, a full bath, and an additional bedroom with 1 full bed and one queen bed and private bath. The deck on this level, has a large swing chair and a seven-person hot tub with lifter bar for easy access. Just wait till the stars come out!

Down in the valley, is our new, Stonehenge-inspired natural firepit. So romantic.

Starry Nights Lodge offers something for everyone in the family, with mountain views from every room, game tables and more, all in a lovely setting that is peaceful and still convenient to area attractions and events.

**If your group is larger, consider also renting Blue Moon Lodge, just up the hill (see: vrbo.com/1060962).

About Kathryn

After living abroad, we settled in the temperate region of Charlotte, NC and found ourselves constantly drawn to the beauty of the mountains, just 2 hours away. There were so many activities in every changing season; hiking , biking, skiing & snowboarding, canoeing and kayaking. We couldn't get it all in in a weekend! So we decided to buy a special place with everything we loved. We hope you too will enjoy Starry Nights Lodge.

Kathryn purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Kathryn chose North Carolina

We spent a year looking at houses that were never quite right, we finally found this place and knew our search was over. We were immediately drawn out to the deck overlooking the valley and couldn't leave it. It was fall and the area still smelled of wild flowers and sweet grass. My daughter said, 'Can you just imagine this place on a starry night?' And that's how Starry Nights Lodge was born.

What makes this cabin unique

This house pleases everyone. There is enough room for all to spread out. You won't look out at any neighbors, just deers playing in the valley below, or listen for an an owl calling his mate. In the magical winter, the fireplace is warm and cozy and children can sled right from the front door. If you are lucky enough to be here on a warm spring night, the air is lit with hundreds of fireflies- all seen from the hot tub and decks.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As the weather changed on our trek up to this mountainous Shangri-La, so did our attitudes. Left behind was the hustle and bustle of our lives, replaced by the aura of the ever-changing leaves. The surrounding nature changed our souls as we watched deer graze in the spacious wonder below us. Thank you for sharing your mountain oasis.

Awesome!

I hate that I'm just now leaving a review for this place. I stayed here in November with my friends for my bachelorette weekend and this cabin is beautiful and perfect! They were very thoughtful and even left a bottle of wine for us. Thank you so much!!

By far the Best!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in plenty of vrbo rentals in the mountains and the beach, and this cabin was by far the best! It's set back from the road, surrounded by rolling hills and mountains, very quiet and calm. We saw deer, wild turkey, lots of birds and we think we heard a bobcat! The hot tub (huge) was delicious and we made a nice fire down in the firepit, under a star covered sky. All this, and we were just a short drive to Boone. The cabin is spacious, well decorated and clean and the owner was wonderful to work with. What more could you want?? We will be back! T.S. Raleigh

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at Starry Nights Lodge. Everything was clean and ready for us upon our late night arrival. The snow moon shown beautifully above the mountain ridge. The deer grazed in the valley just below the house. We felt welcomed and at home in your lovely home. The beds were comfortable for all of us, the kitchen was well appointed, and the hot tub was ready for us to enjoy, which we did as we shared funny anecdotes! The fireplace was a terrific addition to the warm ambiance of Starry Nights Lodge. We enjoyed an early morning walk to the top of the ridge while others slept in. The Foosball table provided for a preemptive tourney to a board game night filled with strategic plans for victory! We skied at Sugar in the 56 degree weather - truly unbelievable for February!

We hope to return and we would most certainly recommend Starry Nights to all!

Thank you for such a wondrous weekend!

Wonderful Cabin! Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I had a large group of nine friends and we stayed at the Starry Nights cabin. The cabin was as good or better than advertised. We had a wonderful weekend and the cabin came equipped with everything you need to cook at the cabin so there is no need to dine out. The cabin is located about 10 minutes from Boone so the location is very convenient and easy to find. The whole cabin is very clean including the hot tub. There is a foosball table table and plenty of room to enjoy in the main living area. There is a very nice fire pit outside and two decks with rocking chairs to enjoy the views. We really enjoyed our weekend trip in this very nice cabin.

Enjoy skiing at Sugar & Beech mountains, hiking and picnicking along the Blue Ridge Pkwy, Moses Cone Mansion, & Julian Price Park. Biking year round on the 17-mile Virginia Creeper trail. Fishing, rafting, canoeing & kayaking in the area's many cold water streams. Kids enjoy panning for gold, Tweetsie Railroad, spelunking and zipline adventures nearby. Adults can hunt for original artwork in elegant Blowing Rock and find creative shops and organic restaurants in Boone. Or, do nothing at all, sit back and rock on the deck and breathe in the view. At night- just wait for the stars to come out. Or better yet, enjoy them after the sun sets from the jacuzzi.
