About Robin Bumgarner

Our oldest daughter went to ASU and we fell in love with Boone. We purchased the property and have been enjoying it with our children and grandchildren ever since. Unfortunately, we cannot make it to the house as much as we would like to, so we have decided to share it with others who have fell in love with Boone.

Robin Bumgarner purchased this house in 2008

Why Robin Bumgarner chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

Spectacular view, lots of privacy, gated community and 5 minutes from Boone.

What makes this house unique

This house has a backporch that you can sit and admire the view for days.

NOT CLEANED prior to arrival: unusable for hours

  • 2 of 5

After a long day, my family arrived at 6:30 to find a pile of dirty towels, rumpled sheets/unmade beds. The cabin had clearly not been cleaned after prior renters. Phoned owner who nicely apologized for mistake. We were not able to unpack or shower in the rental. (She offered use of shower in owner's personal unit downstairs, but this was inconvenient.)

We asked about storing our bicycles before we returned to town (to allow housekeeper time to arrive/clean). She said we could store our bikes in shed, but I opened and discovered it was unusable/stuffed with items (including bags of garbage from renters). She again apologized, stating that she/spouse would be there in an hour. I received a message at 9:05 pm saying housekeeper would be finished in fifteen minutes. Upon return, everything was ship-shape.

Owner is very kind and offered to refund a night's stay, but we did not want to take money from her business/livelihood. (She also proffered staying an extra night, but we had to return to our jobs).

I slept poorly the first night due to ambivalence about leaving a negative review (as accolades from prior reviewers are accurate and owner was responsive). I have never left a negative review. But...I ultimately opted to be a good steward of this forum and provide authentic accounting of problem.

Especially disappointing: this was our only vacation (just 2 nights) all year with our son from college. We have experienced multiple recent family tragedies and are caring for two terminally-ill relatives and were greatly anticipating this brief respite. Thus, we were especially disappointed when arriving at a cabin in unacceptable condition.

Owner's Response: We try very hard to provide a wonderful experience to our guests who choose to stay at our mountain home in Boone. We enjoy spending time in our mountain home and our guests do as well, as evidenced by our many, many great reviews. Unfortunately, in this case, the housekeeper that cleans our home before guests arrive made a mistake in her calendar. As soon as we received a phone call from our guest that the house had not been cleaned, we contacted our housekeeper and she was at the house within 30 minutes. She apologized profusely, as did we, for the schedule mix up. The house was totally cleaned and ready for occupancy within an hour and a half. To make our guests as comfortable as possible, we offered them the use of our “mother-in-law” apartment (in the bottom floor of the house which we do not rent out and is never occupied while the house is rented) while the house was being cleaned. Our guest actually commented that our housekeeper did a great job in cleaning the house. We regret any inconvenience to our guests. But we wanted to make them comfortable and get the house ready for them as soon as possible. Again, our apologies, and we hope our guests come again. Sincerely, Robin and Gary

Outstanding views!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great property. Great views from the deck and easy to get to. Exactly filled our purpose of enjoying Boone and the surrounding towns like Blowing Rock, hiking off the Blue Ridge Parkway and our visit to Grandfather Mountain. I personally want to thank the owners and especially Robin for making sure everything was great for us while stating at this property. This was the first time I used Home Away and was extremely grateful that I found this house to rent.

Perfect location amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing, perfect view and very relaxing. The beds were extremely comfortable. Very close to downtown Boone about at $15 Uber drive. We saw lots of deer in the neighborhood multiple times. There was a slim selection of DVDs in the house but we just stopped by a red box. Robin was a very considerate host and kept us updated on checkin time availability and somethings going on in the neighborhood. We would definitely stay again and have already talked the house up to multiple friends!!! Thank you so much!!

Great cabin for stay with kids

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and smelled great but the back door stuck and toilet seat was broken. Great place to stay for a short trip with kids.

We enjoyed our stay here. Beautiful view and very close to so many area attractions. It was nice and peaceful. If I had a complaint about the house it would be the bed was too high (I am a shortie) so we switched to the smaller room. However, that would vary person to person and is in no way a negative comment. The owners were very nice to work with. It was a great honeymoon!

We loved our stay. The view was breathtaking. Everything that we needed was provided and more. We will be coming back. It was the perfect home away from home.
