Why Kitty Hild chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

Seldom does a destination offer so much to do year-round. We never run out of things to entertain us when we are at our cabin, whether it is events in the area or fun family and friend activity at the cabin itself. We LOVE this escape from our otherwise hectic lives!

Great family stay!

Our family really enjoyed our stay at the Life is Good cabin! The cabin was very clean & we had everything we needed. We greatly enjoyed the hot tub after long days of hiking. Great location, centrally located to many tourist attractions. We will return!

Beautiful, well stocked, kid friendly cabin close to everything

My wife, 3 boys, and I loved our trip. The boys loved all of the games, pool table, and the hot tub! We stayed in all weekend and never got bored or cabin fever. The cabin is well stocked with nearly everything you need. Great cabin, great experience, lots of memories!

Queen Family Sugar Mountain Ski Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in this cabin. We spent Friday evening snow tubing and Saturday skiing and snowboarding on Sugar Mountain. The cabin was perfect for our group. The young adults enjoyed the pool table downstairs and we took advantage of the grill cooking out steaks after our long day skiing on Saturday. We even manged to get three four-wheel drive vehicles strategically parked without blocking drive !

Enjoyable Stay, great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend in the mountains! Kitty was great to work with, and we knew exactly what to expect when we got there thanks to her helpful emails. I only wish we had booked a longer stay. We will definitely be coming back soon!

Great location and size

We enjoyed our stay! The property was convenient to all ski slopes and restaurants and very close to downtown Boone. The kids loved the hot tub and pool table. The beds were comfortable and was stocked with all extras to make our stay worry free. We would certainly stay here again!
