'Leap of Faith' is a beautiful North Carolina log home located in lovely Boomer NC, just outside of North Wilkesboro.
Just 30-45 min. to Boone/Blowing Rock area!! COMPARE our prices and you will be even more amazed!
This wonderful log home is in a private, secluded & gated community with gorgeous panoramic views of the NC mountains. There are numerous hiking trails as well as a community center overlooking a creek with waterfall!
This lovingly decorated home is your own private retreat with top quality bedding in two large bedrooms including a private loft with views. Gourmet kitchen, cozy living areas, jetted tub, all surrounded by expansive porches and deck with a view to captivate and relax you. You'll never want to leave your rocking chair! Brand new stone gas fireplace.
PLEASE BE AWARE, there is no TV or internet -- by design! Cell reception is fine.
Also, we do not normally recommend our cabin for smaller children, primarily for safety reasons although we can make exceptions. [Please let us know ages. This is because of the way the cabin is situated on a steep hill and we wouldn't want to endanger the young ones.]
38 miles to Blowing Rock & Boone NC
Wilkesboro NC is approximately 12 miles away.
12 miles to Merlefest - Wilkes Community College
86 miles to Charlotte NC
55 miles to Winston-Salem NC
Near the Blue Ridge Parkway, Boone & Blowing rock (art galleries, restaurants, and ski resorts) or just about any other activity you desire. Great opportunities for day trips nearby, while being able to get away from it all too!
We are a typical 'late middle-age' couple fortunate enough to have made the dream of a home in the mountains a reality. We are both NC natives and live on the outskirts of Charlotte NC and wanted to be able to get away from it all. This home fulfilled that dream and so much more. We'd like to share that dream with others like ourselves. We didn't just buy it -- we BUILT it! We truly treasure our property and know that if you stay here, you will treat it with the same care that we do.[Directions and access codes are sent prior to arrival so you can find us!]
Chuck Andrews purchased this cabin in 2010
We enjoy the Boone / Blowing Rock area but wanted to get away from the city. Wilkesboro provided the perfect setting, just 30-45 min.away yet with a rural feel. If you are looking for that special place to unwind, look no further. We chose NO TV or Internet for just that reason. This is the place to get back into nature and revitalize. Turn off the gadgets and relax!
This is what you love about the mountains -- miles and miles of unobstructed views to bring back those memories of 'going to the mountains' from childhood! We love children -- however, we recommend our cabin only for adults but can make exceptions. Please contact us for details.
Note: Snow is not common in Boomer since we are at a lower elevation than Boone/Blowing Rock, but ONLY if it snows in winter (rare in Boomer) is 4-wheel drive needed.
When the leaves are out, there is still a fantastic view but the feel is akin to being in a treehouse. We love trees too!
Cabin was perfect for our time away , great location,quiet, and comfortable beds. Owner's were very easy to work with. We will return. As for the drive to and from places like Grandfather mountain, and some nice wineries it does take thirty to sixty minutes, but it's a beautiful drive on some beautiful mountain roads.If your looking for a cabin with great views, this is the one.
Upon arriving at this beautiful log cabin and walking up the stairs we rounded the corner and were met with the most amazing, breathtaking view. We entered the cabin and were met again by beautiful surroundings, the most comfortable furniture, and fantastically comfortable beds. We spent every day rocking on the deck and gazing at the most beautiful scenery and the wonderful sounds of wind chimes, and nature sounds. We stayed at the cabin during our entire stay as it was so beautiful, comfortable, and enjoyable place we didn't want to leave. We ate every meal outside and enjoyed the views while listening to classical music that was supplied and was so beautiful and peaceful to listen to. We truly appreciated the disconnect from technology and enjoyed our own private paradise. We never saw another person during our stay and we enjoyed living in this beautiful cabin. My husband and I truly had amazing conversations, played games, and loved sitting in the comfortable rocking chairs and watching hawks and butterflies, and the occasional bat at night. Everything was supplied in the amazing kitchen, wonderful jetted tub was a nice surprise, and enjoyed the fantastic night's sleep in the most comfortable bed. This was a vacation that will never be forgotten. We could not recommend anyplace more than this beautiful cabin to disconnect from our hectic lives and enjoy a technology free zone that was so needed and we also can't say enough kind words for the owners. Their patience and flexibility was greatly appreciated and their concern for our enjoyment was top notch.
The property was just what was pictured online. It is situated with a gorgeous view as you awake each morning. The house was cozy and relaxing with no distractions like TV/Wifi. It was wonderfully refreshing! We enjoyed coffee on the deck and evenings by the fireplace. Everything was tidy and new looking, not worn out and stained. We would definitely book a stay here again! My one and only small complaint was the jetted tub upstairs took over an hour to fill. But, it worked!! LOVE this property!!!!!!!!
This was my third stay at "Leap of Faith", and now it is just beginning to feel like a home away from home. Chuck and Bennie have simply thought of everything ... everything that is, to enable one to have a relaxing escape weekend free from the chaos of the world. Whether it's listening to the classical greats of Beethoven, Bach, or Chopin, or kicking back with a good book next to the beautiful stone fireplace; this little piece of heaven has it all. The décor is modern yet very comfortable, and everything is kept so clean and neat. There is literally no wear and tear on any of the furniture in any of the rooms. The kitchen is just perfect, with granite countertops and all of the necessities (an certainly some extras) for cooking throughout you stay. If there is a self-proclaimed chef in your family, they will truly be delighted upon arrival. Of course, my review would not be complete without mentioned the entire reason I go there ... the view. This is why I call this beautiful home a little piece of heaven. When you sit on the back deck in one of their cushioned rocking chairs, and simply gaze out over the mountain scape, something special happens. You are engulfed in a feeling that nothing else matters at that moment. Any worries, frustrations, or work deadlines simply wash away. It's a special place, and their 180 degree view of the Blue Ridge Mountains is extraordinary. So very peaceful, and so very relaxing. Something we could all use a lot more of in our lives. And I hope to be up there again for a fourth visit again soon. Thank you Chuck and Bennie for sharing your beautiful home with all of us who can see how special Leap of Faith truly is.
Perfection in everything, from the stunning views to the thoughtfully and comfortably furnished cabin! I particularly enjoyed having my morning coffee while taking in the beauty of the mountainside and the changing leaves. Love the wind chimes too! We highly recommend this luxurious retreat and hope to return.

We arrived at the cabin at 5:30pm from coastal Virginia to find a couple already in the cabin. After contacting the owner who contacted VRBO he found us a cabin in the same location for two nights ( we had booked 6) and then had to move to another locale. We loved the cabin we were moved to for the first 2 nights but we were very disappointed with the next cabin so much so that we left a day early. we wanted sunrises or sunsets and stars. We were in a valley with no sunrise, sunset or stars. Plenty of cobwebs and a busy road with traffic that began 5:30am. The original cabin looked wonderful (the honeymooning couple let me use the restroom) and I would have been very happy staying there. So my grumble is withVRBO not the cabin or owner. There was no offer of anything to compensate for their double booking.
Just 30-45 minutes to the Boone and Blowing Rock area, but far enough away to be completely secluded. Nestled in the Brushy Mountains in Boomer, NC (GPS it!). Also close to all the amenities in Wilkesboro.
