About the property

2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath cabin with grassy yard by the creek, waterfall, and views!

This cozy, newly renovated, A-frame cabin with an open floor plan and 3 porches will be a great choice for your family! A creek runs nearly 180 degrees around the property with large porch on the back and grassy yard, giving you a peaceful retreat. Large windows full of views of the sights and sounds of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The property is tucked under the rhododendrons in a little habitat for birds, chipmunks, and all types of wildlife that enjoy the creek. You'll feel totally tucked away, but just a short 5-10 minute drive to all you need from groceries to restaurants, hiking, skiing, leaf watching, and so much more! Just perfect for a single family, romantic getaway, or 4-6 adults who want to get away together.

The interior has been recently renovated with an open floor plan, hardwood flooring and new carpet in the bedroom and loft. The iron stove has gas logs for ambiance and warmth in the winter. The leather sofa and recliner offer comfy places to relax and no worries with kids! 2 flat-screen TVs with cable and BlueRay player will keep you entertained when you can't enjoy the outdoors. Cable and WIFI included.

The Master bedroom had a King Bed, the Loft & bedroom upstairs will sleep 4 on twin beds, and Living Room has a Queen sleeper sofa. One full bath on the main level, with one half bath in the loft. The covered deck on the back keeps you dry while you listen to the babbling creek and waterfall, watch the birds feeding in the many feeders just off the deck, and enjoy the privacy of the trees and the blooms of the mountain laurels.

The Sunburst Cabin is perfect for a romantic getaway or a small family's vacation. Equipped with a 'Reading Nook', books and toys for kids, and gates at the top and bottom of the stairs to keep kids safe, it's great for young families as well.

Not available for wedding or event rental. 2-night minimum, longer for holidays. Keywords: Cabin, creek, private, cozy, romantic, getaway, fishing, rustic

About JD Ross

Hi, we're JD & Meredith! We bought the Sunburst Cabin with Meredith's parents as a getaway and mountain retreat and have recently renovated the entire house. We love this cabin like our home and want to share it with others since we can't use it full-time. Our 2 daughters love the flat back yard, the creek that runs across the property behind the house, and watching the birds flutter around all the bird feeders on the back deck.

JD Ross purchased this cabin in 2015

Why JD Ross chose Boone

We chose this property for its secluded feeling, while still being a short drive to all the amenities of the High Country. Minutes from Boone, Blowing Rock, Valle Crucis, Banner Elk, the Blue Ridge Parkway, ski resorts, hiking, fishing, and's really in the perfect location. It has a creek that nearly circles the back of the cabin with trout darting in out of the shadows, and a small waterfall that constantly plays a soundtrack that lets you know you're in the mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

Sitting in the Sunburst Cabin, you look out every window and see nothing but trees, rhododendron, birds, and the hills surrounding the house. Meredith says it's "like being inside a terrarium". There are other homes around and you can even see a few through the trees, but it still feels like you're all alone.

Tranquil and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a lovely few days at the Sunburst Cabin. We came up for a respite filled and relaxing vacation with few plans. The house was ideal. Close to town but also felt very private and tranquil. The house was clean, well stocked, beautifully decorated, and had a very comfortable bed and linens. The creek was serene and we spent most of our time on the deck and in the yard reading and relaxing. We visited without our children but would love to return with them when they are older as they would love the loft and the creek in the summer.

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at the cabin. We found it super charming and convenient to just about everything in the area! We’d like to return in he summer to enjoy the creek! Perfect for a single family (2 adults and 3 kids). Loved all the pottery accents too!!

Amazing Cabin for Family Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cabin over Christmas, and our 3 children loved the cabin. They really enjoyed having their own space in the loft. Perfect location, close to Boone, but you feel like you are out on your own. Highly recommend staying at the Sunburst cabin.

Amazing secret little hideaway close to downtown!

  • 5 of 5

We had an AMAZING weekend exploring in and around this adorable mountain cabin! The place was immaculate with all needed items in the kitchen. We loved dining outside on the deck & our boys stomped in the creek collecting rocks & catching a few crawdads! So close to downtown and groceries and restaurants, truly a hidden gem!! We will certainly be back again!

Car: necessary

Sunburst Cabin is the perfect location to venture out to Downtown Boone (10 min), Downtown Blowing Rock (15 min), Grandfather Mountain, Ski Resorts (Appalachian, Sugar Mtn, Ski Beech, Hawksnest), Valle Crucis (15 min), Hiking, Fly Fishing, Shopping, Leaf Watching, and Mountain Biking.

Our favorite family-friendly things to do include Tweetsie Railroad, the "Tot-Lot" Playground and Greenway Trails in Boone, the Watauga Aquatic Center (especially when it's cold outside), the Valle Crucis Community Park (playground, walking path, river to splash in), Mast General Stores in Boone and Valle Crucis, and the park in Downtown Blowing Rock.

For fun nights out, our favorites include CoBo Sushi, The Local, and Lost Province Brewing Co (and wood-fired pizza!), all in Boone. Bistro Roca is our favorite in Blowing Rock. And close to the cabin, The Gamekeeper is an excellent, unique restaurant featuring different game meats. Appalachian Mountain Brewery has great beer and live music on weekends.

For shopping, Blowing Rock has an excellent Outlet Mall (Tanger Outlets) and lots of clothing, antique, and accessory boutiques Downtown. Downtown Boone has pottery studios, outdoor clothing/gear outfitters (Mast General Store, Footsloggers), Appalachian State Univ fan merchandise, bike shops, and Antique Stores (Farmer's Hardware and Antiques on Howard).
