Overview

High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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 (Price Lake is less than a 1/2 mile hike directly from the cabin), 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great weekend in John's 'BrookeView' cabin!! We invited a another family (6 including nanny) along with our family of four and it was the perfect size. We hung out, skied/snowboarded and watched our Panthers win! The cabin had everything we needed to make it a great weekend!!

Perfect for a long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This property is spacious, well-decorated, and warm (we stayed in February). The kitchen and living room are perfect gathering spots for game night or a movie. The beds were very comfortable. The location is perfect and tucked away, but not too far from town.

Will book this cabin again! The host was easy to work with and accomodating.

Great front porch and screened-in back porch were an added bonus.

The Perfect Log Cabin Experience

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a last minute 2 day getaway to enjoy the mountains with my family. It was exactly what we hoped for in a home. The Brookview cabin is close to a lot. We took advantage of tubing and the town of Blowing Rock. The cabin was extremely clean, cozy and beautifully decorated... a perfect place to relax while it was snowing outside. Our kids loved the wooded area and creek out back. We will definitely come back and enjoy Brookview in the spring and summer seasons. Also want to thank John for being so helpful and responsive during our trip! You can't ask for a more cooperative owner.

Our stay at Brookview

  • 5 of 5

The Brookview was amazing! We stayed there with our three children and enjoyed a weekend being rained in together! The house was so comfortable and welcoming and plenty of room for the seven of us. We could have fit another family as well! The house was beautifully decorated and the property the cabin sits on was perfect for the kids to explore! The porches that overlooked the creek and the beautiful landscape was our favorite spot! We plan to make it a yearly trip!

Luxury Mountain Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Brookview exceeded our expectations of a mountain "cabin." It was spacious, beautifully decorated, immaculate, & well-equipped. The bedrooms were particularly comfortable. The large, screened in back deck afforded a space for day & nighttime activities. We had a great long weekend there with our children & grandchildren.

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.
