Boomer Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 BDR/2BA with spectacular mountain views plus privacy. COMPARE OUR RATES !!

'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 [check it out, just 1/4 mile away down Sweetwater Rd.]

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!

About Chuck Andrews

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

Why Chuck Andrews chose North Carolina

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!

What makes this cabin unique

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!

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Robert, for your thoughtful review. This is exactly what we recommend for people like yourself who want a getaway from the everyday (think cell phones, although they do work fine there) while still being close enough to other places to go if the urge strikes. Please feel free to recommend us to friends and family who might be similarly inclined!

Peace and quiet are hard to find with our increasing population, however, this cabin rental provides plenty of quiet for the weary workers of the twenty-first century. The peaceful view of the valley, the fresh mountain air escorted in by gentle breezes, the privacy of a gated community, and only one distant neighbor are all wonderful factors for selecting this cabin. The deciding factor for us was the quietness of being "unplugged" from the internet and from satellite tv for a week. Our minds were truly able to get some needed rest in order to be better prepared for the work world upon our return. It was a refreshing change, and we welcome another visit without hesitation.

My fiancé and I were blown away from this VRBO. Collectively, we have stayed in a lot of places, VRBO and AirBnb related, and this is by far the best and most comforting house we have come across yet! It had EVERYTHING you needed - you can tell them have put a lot of work and love into making this cabin the perfect getaway. The drive, the view, the serenity, the amenities - an all around amazing experience. We look forward to returning to this VRBO and it will be the first place we recommend to family and friends!

Beautiful property with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved every minute of staying at the leap of faith! The property was nice and clean. The owners have thought of everything that will make your stay feel like your home away from home even though there is no television or internet connection. We actually liked that fact because it lead to great conversations and quality time spent with one another. We will definitely be returning!!

A perfectly secluded cabin. So cozy and yet spacious at the same time! We spent as much time outside on that amazing deck as we did inside. Thanks so much!!

Breathtaking View

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Hi Amy, We are so glad you and your husband chose to stay at 'LOF' and that you had a superlative stay. Of course, this is what we aim for and are always appreciative when our guests enjoy the same simple delights that we do. We can't thank you adequately for your kind words. Please keep us in mind for a return stay and recommend us to friends and family!

Car: recommended

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.
