About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 2 den areas, loft, 3 decks in woods with brook

BrookView is an aptly named, enchanting log cabin atop a lovely brook. Set in the woods in Fair Mountain Acres and surrounded by rhododendron, but less than 5 miles from downtown Blowing Rock. This large 2,400 square foot, air-conditioned home provides three outside porches (all furnished with comfortable seating and tables for dining). The top back porch is screened and overlooks the brook. Along with the brook, the secluded one acre lot includes a hammock, tire swing, and fire pit with a wood pile for cooking hot dogs or smores with the family.

As you enter BrookView you will find a great room with living area with a two story fireplace, a kitchen and dining area. The living area has a large stone 2-story fireplace with gas logs and a brand new 60” HDTV with a Blu-Ray player and surround sound. The master bedroom is on the main level and comes with a king bed, 50” HDTV, and private bathroom. Upstairs you have the open loft that has a queen bed and overlooks the great room. Also, you will find an upstairs bedroom with a king bed, TV, and another bathroom. Downstairs has four full size beds set up as bunks, a den area, foosball table and full bathroom.

This is a perfect location with easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Grandfather Mountain, Appalachian Ski Mountain, the town of Blowing Rock, the Blowing Rock Equestrian Preserve, Bass & Trout Lakes, Linville Caverns, Tweetsie Railroad, the Westglow Resort & Spa, the Tanger Shoppes on the Parkway, and much much more!

About John Lewis

My wife and I are originally from Kingsport, TN and Winston-Salem, NC, respectively. I attended the University of Tennessee in Knoxville while my wife attended Appalachian State University right down the road in Boone, NC. I think we have always loved the mountains. Therefore, in 2004 we designed and built this authentic log cabin for not only our family, but for your family, to enjoy. We have made many great family memories in this cabin. We have also enjoyed bringing both friends and family to Brookview. There are so many wonderful and varied things to do in this area. This is also the place just to sit by the fire or sit out on the porch.

Why John Lewis chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

One of the reasons we selected this property is because of its great location. It is so easy to get to from any direction, rain or shine. Everything you wish to do in this area is in close proximity to our cabin. The property itself is beautiful with the stream, the woods, and the rhododendron.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin has been professionally decorated to make you feel like you have stepped directly in a home, rather than a rental. Many of the headboards, tables, nightstands, etc. have been handcrafted with wood directly from the property.

Not only is the cozy inside of the cabin so appealing, but also everything that is available right outside the front door. You can relax in the hammock, sit around the fire pit, play in the brook, or adventure out through the woods. If this is too much activity for you, rest in one of the rockers or swings on the porches and watch everyone else enjoy their outside adventures.

Beautiful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time. The cabin was very clean and decorated nicely. It's a perfect location. Close to town but still feels secluded. Loved the screened in porch. We are a family of four and could have easily and comfortably stayed with another family of four. We will definitely be back!

Very peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home. Everything you want from relaxing outdoor fixtures to indoor comfort. We especially loved the back porch setting in the mornings when there always seemed to be a cool breeze. The inside was very clean. The master bed was comfy cozy!

And if that wasn't enough, the owner, John, was very hospitable, responsive, and patient to these two weary Florida travelers.

John, we appreciate the extra mile you went to accommodate our last minute and late reservation. We would love to come back and stay in your lovely home - we promise to give you more notice!

Thank you again.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at beautiful Brookview!

  • 5 of 5

Brookview was impeccibly decorated and the furnishings were comfortable. Our family loved relaxing on the screened in porch, listening to the birds chirp. The proximity to downtown Blocking Rock is a huge plus, as well as to gorgeous views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and various hiking trails. The info book with restaurant, shopping, and local attraction recommendations was very helpful. We loved our week at Brookview and hope to return!

Great place to make memories

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous trip with 10 people ranging from 11 to 45. The fire pit is awesome. The best part, for most of us, is the huge screened porch where you can sip a cup of coffee or read a book and relax in the mtn air and sounds of nature. Convenient to most everything. Very nice stay.

Pictures don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

This should be a six star! BrookView is a beautiful home! It felt more like a home than a rental cabin. Thank you, John, for sharing it with us. Our family visited Tweetsie Railroad and the park in Blowing Rock. BrookView was the perfect place for our stay - very convenient to downtown restaurants, grocery store. The cabin was so spacious and relaxing. The bedrooms are on different levels, so there was enough privacy but yet we could all be together. We enjoyed the screened in porch and swing. We made wonderful memories and all agreed we would love to return. We have rented through VRBO in the past. Working with John was an easy process. He responded quickly to my communications. We will definitely stay here again!

Our family had an absolutely amazing time! The cabin was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were amazing. Comfy and well appointed. We have even gone so far as to try to recreate the ambience of the screen porch at our home since our littlest one fell asleep so easy there! Would love to stay here again at some point in the future!

Brookview was established with leisure, mountain living in mind. It was designed to allow you to get away from it all and relax. Brookview is a new cedar log cabin with its own brook in the woods. The cabin is in a private setting and is surrounded by rhododendron. Much thought went into your comfort during your stay. You will find yourself just minutes from Main Street Blowing Rock, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and Grandfather Mountain. Price Lake (on the Blue Ridge Parkway) is less than a 1/2 mile hike directly from the cabin.

$175/Night for same-day stay with a 2 night minimum.

Rates are subject to change until reservation is confirmed. I would strongly recommend purchasing the $59 PDP versus the $1,500 deposit because by the time the credit card fees are taken out for both the payment and return of the deposit you end up paying more than $59.
