Boone cabin description

Appalachian Retreat was completed in May 2008. It has been furnished exclusively at the Hickory Furniture Mart with top of the line leather mountain style furnishings. The house is log sided, with a red tin roof, two porches and three levels.

Each level has its own private bath and sitting area. The main level and lower level master suite each have a TV with DirecTV. The main level has a stereo system that is MP3 compatible, so bring your iPod! The kitchen has granite counters, stainless steel appliances, great dishes, serving pieces, wine glasses, cooking utensils. The owners outfitted this house not as a rental home, but as if they would use it full time.

This cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains has beautiful mountain views and is ideally located for visits to Boone and ASU, West Jefferson and the New River. The Blue Ridge Parkway entrance is five minutes away with great biking. Mountain biking and bicycle rentals are all close by. The owners have left travel brochures and biking guides to be used by the guests.

This cabin is in a great location to be able to have a quiet romantic getaway and then go into town for a great dinner. Blowing Rock and nearby Appalachian Ski Mountain is only 30 minutes away and the ski slopes of Beech and Sugar Mountains are about an hours drive. This cabin was purchased not just for its amazing looks, but for its fabulous location.

                          Our 'Appalachian Retreat' is located equally between Boone and West Jefferson in the town of Fleetwood. Great location for MerleFest, ASU football games and arts festivals, fishing, kayaking, biking, skiing, hiking,and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Ashe County has become a vibrant vacation area with the charming small town feel and great access to the larger town of Boone. Great restaurants, shopping and outdoor activities are all nearby. This cabin is fantastic year round and especially for leaf viewing as it is sitting up high on a very wooded lot.

                          This brand new cabin is a real gem with each bedroom* having its own level and unique features. The game table is perfect for chess, backgammon, checkers, cards, puzzles and scrabble. The Foosball table is ready for a friendly game and a beer! The 2-sided gas fireplace sets a beautiful backdrop for having an evening glass of wine on the porch while listening to and watching the wildlife.

                          Other Activities: river floating, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, winery tours

                          Ski: Approxiamtely 30 minutes to Appalachian Ski Resort and around 45 to Beech and Sugar. Hawlsnest Tubing and Zip line ius around 30 minutes as well.

                          *Bedrooms are private, sitting area is outside each room.

                          Keep in mind you will be visiting the mountains of North Carolina, the road up to the house is gravel, so keep that in mind with your rental car choice! Hope to have you visit our wonderful gem!

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About: We live all over the place but the North Carolina mountains have always had a special pull for us. We love to bike ride and we love hiking and exploring the outdoors. This home has given us a great place to come together and relax to enjoy all that North Carolina has to offer us. Every trip up to our retreat is another opportunity to explore and visit our favorite places, new and old.

                          Why Boone:
                          We fell in love with the area when we were kids and went to summer camp near Asheville. We knew we had to buy a home in the mountains. After one of us went to Appalachian State University we all spent enough time in the area to know that Northwest NC was the place. We searched all the surrounding areas and were lucky to find this new home in a perfect location. Our home is secluded yet we can get to Boone, Blowing Rock and West Jefferson in no time. We love being secluded, but having the ability to go ride Railroad Grade Rd and Kayak or float the New River. Our favorite night time adventure is driving the 25 minutes to Grassy Creek, NC to the River House for a fantastic Dinner and great company. We have furnished this house so that we never feel like we are in a rental, but that we are in our home. It is top notch and our little best kept secret. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
