                                The cabin was a wonderful retreat for our week-end. The kids loved the board games, bears and Boone. Great trip to Blowing Rock and Mast General. The view of Grandfather Mountain was majestic! Thanks for sharing your home with our families.

                                We loved our stay at the cabin. The space was great, and we loved the natural wood. We had so much fun and plenty of space to play indoors and outdoors. It was so close to snow tubing which was fun. We will definitely be back! Thank you for your hospitality.

                                This was our second year spending a family vacation in this cabin. Last year we were able to ignore the paper-thin walls and floors since everything else was enjoyable. This year, not so much. The storm windows were not lowered and so we had to go around "winterizing" the cabins very old windows. The doors had such bad weather stripping that you could see large gaps of light around them. And to top it off, the thermostat was "touchy" and refused to work properly during a very cold spell (-10 windchill!). We had 3 very small children in the house and yet the owner did not return our call or text about the thermostat. The only warm spot for the kids was sitting close to the fire. Bedtimes were a nightmare due to the cold. She needs to put a little maintenance and effort into the cabin to make it comfortable again. I would only recommend this cabin in the warmer months and to groups with no young children.

                                Owner response: I am sorry this guest did not have an enjoyable time at the cabin. They were there when the outside temperature dipped to a low of 7 below zero, unusually and extremely cold - setting local records. I did respond to their call regarding the thermostat and did get it working properly. The bedrooms are very warm if the heat vents are opened and by choice they had a fire in the fireplace most of the time. I was not informed of the cold bedroom problem. I appreciate the concerns expressed and am making every effort to make the cabin a more cozy place to stay - even in the coldest of times.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2005

                              About the owner: I am a retired school teacher and college administrator in love with the western North Carolina mountain communities around Boone. I spent my childhood in Ohio, raised my family of 5 children in Michigan and lived and worked in Chicago for 20 years before retirement. As a mid-westerner I especially enjoy our wonderful mountain climate; warmer in Winter, cooler in Summer and so so beautiful in Spring and Fall.

                              Why the Owner Chose Boone:
                              I have always been attracted to older homes, with large trees on the property, and enjoy returning them to their intended grace and beauty. We bought this tired, older log cabin in 2005 and spent 3 years restoring it to its current condition. I love being an Inn Keeper and sharing my home and its beautiful setting with our guests and my family when they can come for a visit. In addition to the upper cabin with its 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, etc, there is a separate apartment on the lowest level which is where I live when I am not traveling.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                              This property used to be a Christmas tree farm - the trees now tower over 70 feet and provide a year round green buffer from the local roads that make getting to points of interest easy and convenient. I like sitting on the hill next to the cabin and looking at the profile of Grandfather Mountain. It's a great way to start the day with a cup of coffee and an even better way to unwind after a busy day of mountain activity or just sightseeing our beautiful mountain area.
