About the property

2 Bedrooms,1 Full Bathrooms,living room,Kitchen,Washer Dryer, Sleeps 5

Experience the authenticity of Mammaw and Pappaw Darnell’s home place ½ miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway and across the street from the Raccoon Holler Campground lake. The beautiful lake is right in front of the home place. Used to about 5 years ago, there was no water or bathroom in this cabin. After Mammaw passed away, it was our dream to restore the home and leave the rooms as Mammaw had them in order to share the love of the cabin with others. Now complete with granite counter tops, hardwood floors, and whirlpool tub with it has all the modern day luxuries. You will really enjoy your time here – two bedrooms (i.e., three full beds as two are upstairs in one room), full bathtub, separate shower, washer dryer, dishwasher microwave, hardwood floors, natural beams etched with pine hardwood to provide the rustic cabin feel yet with the modern day appliances of comfort including flat screen cable television.

This property also has RV hookup. If you have RV, you can connect it all here

Sit on the front porch and look at the lake, view the lake from the kitchen, living room and upstairs bedroom. This home place offers authenticity and comfort. Convenient to Jefferson and West Jefferson, 22 miles out the Blue Ridge Parkway to Boone and a mile from the famous Northwest Trading Post, right off the Blue Ridge Parkway, 15 miles from Wilkesboro, come home to Raccoon Holler

Why Denver Severt chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

This property is far from the madding crowd, and an exquisite getaway in any season. Very accessible in all seasons with state maintained roads. It is close to the parkway, minutes away from all the attractions. FREE WIFI But why did I buy the property. Well I tell all my students about this in my Service Management Courses at the University of Central Florida Rosen College where I am a professor. I grew up a mile away and my Pappaw and Mammaw Darnell lived here and when I came to visit, though they had no water and no bathroom and an outhouse, they gave me a beyond a Ritz Carlton Experience, a Raccoon Holler Experience. I know the love is still in the walls. Completely made 'sexy' and remodeled in the modern day form with great rooms and amenities, the cabin has the same likeness as it did when I stay all those weekend with my grandparents. At noon, they argued over who woke me up - Pappaw got the chamber pot ready so I did not have to go to the outhouse - the smell of Pine cleaner emanated from that pot - they kept everything immaculate. After the morning bathroom visit, Mammaw had breakfast on the table. The two of them loved me and never said a negative word to me - to be welcome by them was to never forget it. I hope you have such a time there.

Not to mention, my amazing Mother, Wanda, the caretaker was raised here and has her own stories to tell from the Holler.

Come join the Raccoon Holler family and stay. It will capture your heart and soul and make you feel rejuvenated head to toe.

QUAINT!

Verified Stay

We loved this clean cozy cabin! It was the perfect space for my husband and I downstairs, and our daughter and granddaughter with their own space upstairs. Great kitchen to cook meals every day and dine in the spacious dining room. Very close to Blueridge Parkway and local attractions. Serene lake in front where we enjoyed our coffee on the porch every morning. Relaxing inside hot tub to wind down true vacation style. We hung out and relaxed at night by the cozy fireplace. Thank you for the great memories made!

Beautiful view - Severt's are wonderful people

The cabin was perfect for a pre-Christmas holiday! It is not too far from a grocery store in the town of Jefferson (15 minutes), has a great view as you can see in the pictures and it also has a great open layout floor plan. I loved the gas fireplace in the living room which made it very cozy on the chilly December nights. The Severt's (Denver and his mom, Wanda) were very caring with great customer service! I would recommend and we will visit again.

Thanksgiving Getaway

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

My husband and I ditched the traditional family Thanksgiving and took a mini vacation of our own. We stayed for two nights and it was great! The cabin was very cute and cozy. There was plenty of room for more people, but we enjoyed having it to ourselves. It's close enough to Boone, Blowing Rock, and Linville for day trips. The cabin was pretty clean, especially the bathroom and kitchen. And the bed in the master bedroom was SUPER comfortable. The Cabin came equipped with all the fixings of home (even candles!) The lake view was phenomenal! We wish we could have stayed longer, but we hope to book it for Thanksgiving next year!

Best Christmas Ever!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

My husband, myself, & our three children spent 6 nights here for our 2015 Christmas vacation. It was hands down the best Christmas ever! The cabin made it perfect! It was very clean, cozy, & just beautiful. My kids loved the staircase & the upstairs loft. From the kitchen to the bathroom to the laundry room, it has everything u need! We loved it so much, we tried to book it again this year...but didn't get to it in time. :( The price was awesome, just what we needed....so we could still afford Christmas gifts for three kids! Lol :) We brought a tree & the kids were so excited to celebrate Christmas in the mountains. It was very private & peaceful, couldn't have asked for a more perfect place. :)
