Boone cottage description
Twisted Laurel is a convenient yet secluded mountainside retreat located between Boone and Blowing Rock off Hwy 321. Enjoy picturesque views of the mountains while dining inside or while sitting in the hot tub on your back deck. Stay cozy by the wood burning fireplace or get outside to nearby slopes or hiking trails and enjoy the outdoors. The cottage is convenient to Blowing Rock and Boone for excellent dining and shopping.
The house has a roomy master bedroom, and a second bedroom with queen size beds. A third bedroom is equipped with a set of bunk beds. The home is ideal for a family or two couples. A full kitchen is available for eating in and linens and towels are provided for convenience. There are two living areas and a dining room with a mountain view. A large, secluded deck with hot tub can be accessed from the dining area and the master bedroom. We have just added a 42 inch flat screen TV in the family room and a 3rd TV in the second bedroom.
We are located 1 mile north of Tweetsie Railroad off HWY 321. ASU is about 4 miles from the house. The Blue Ridge Parkway can be accessed about 4 miles south on HWY 321. Other area attractions include Grandfather Mountain, Moses Cone Manor, Mast General Store in Valle Crucis, and Westglow Spa. Enjoy skiing, tubing and snowboarding in the winter or hiking and staying cool in the summer months.
4-wheel drive or chains are required to reach this property during the winter season. An SUV or larger car is recommended during non-winter months.

The home is very spacious and cozy. The location between Boone and Blowing Rock is great. The kitchen has everthing you would need and the dining room has a beautiful view during dinner.. We all loved the hot tub. The renters could not been any nicer or easier to work with in being responsive and providing helpful informaiton. We had a great vacation and we hope to come back.

Our family of four had a very nice time in this mountain home. Lots of space to spread out. The house feels detached from the rest of the world, but you are close to pretty much everything.

Our family enjoyed this secluded-yet-close-to-everything home. We enjoyed the convenience of being right in between Blowing Rock and Boone. The week of our visit, the mountain weather was experiencing much warmer temperatures than is typical. We were thankful this house had air conditioning on this particular week! The rental homes we have had in the past did not have a/c. Enjoying the hot tub on the porch and watching the sun go down behind the mountains was a wonderful way for our family to end each day. The owners were in constant contact with us throughout the week making sure we knew we could contact them if there was an issue or question (there wasn't). The house was very spacious and clean with three flat screen TVs in case of rain! On the sunny days we enjoyed reading on the back porch and listening to the occasional Tweetsie whistle! We are looking forward to a return visit!

Awesome Relaxing Vacation

What a cute home to vacation in. Upon our arrival we were surprised to see the beds already made and the house was very clean. There was absolutely nothing missing in this home, we only had to bring ourselves! We so enjoyed every minute we were here, from sunsets, few rain showers, the hot tub and windows open in July! The only downfall was going home and maybe the unpaved bumpy road at the last before the driveway but....that is nothing! We even had a friend, Spot visit with us while we were vacationing. If you are looking for a getaway that has it all, this is your stop. The owners made sure we arrived ok and if the house was ok and if there was anything we needed. For the cost, you can't beat this home. We could even hear tweetsie in the distance! Can't say anything but great things. Congrats on making this a home away from home!

I, first overlooked the fact that the house was "pet friendly". Nothing was mentioned in the description of the house but it was noted with the "paw print". Unfortunatley my wife and I have allergies to cats and dogs. I was hoping that dog/cat hair would have been exclusively on the floor but it wasn't. We did notice hair in the linens and on the comforter and most furniture. It is possible that the linens were put on the floor before being placed on the bed, so we spent our first half day cleaning some of the home and washing sheets. The home is somewhat older, no ice maker with fridge and a couple of outlets in dining room area didn't worked. Found out when my phone and computer were dead next morning after leaving them to charge over night. Also the home phone rang alot while we were there, probably telemarketers, so we ended up unplugging the phone. However, the home did have several nice features including the location. House was very private and close to everything, great view and the jacuzzi was exceptional. The owners were always quick to respond with e-mails/phone calls and maintained good comunication. After speaking with the owners on the cleaning issue they were very kind in re-imbursing the cleaning fee since it wasn't to our expectations and they seemed eager to make things right, which meant alot. Eventhough, we may not go back due to the "animal friendly" aspect, we would recommend this place to our friends who have animals and don't have issues with allergies.

Owner response: We were certainly very sorry you experienced difficulties during your stay. We encourage our guests to contact us if issues such as these arise at anytime during their stay. We have a caretaker in the area and we are also reasonably close to handle our guests' concerns. Despite our efforts to maintain good communication, the first we heard of these issues was through this review and we were unable to address them during the visit.
We stayed here for 3 weeks to escape the Florida heat, and we were rewarded with pleasant days and cool nights. No AC needed!! The location is perfect for easy access to Blowing Rock OR Boone, although the peacefulness and privacy at the house almost makes you not want to leave! The pictures on the website are very representative of the actual house- no suprises. The owners obviously take pride in the property, and it is well furnished with everything we needed to eat, sleep and live very comfortably. The doggies loved it too. We hiked the local trails every day, Moses Cone carriage trails being our favorite. Hawksnest Zipline was a great experience too, as well as Grandfather Mountain mile high bridge and wild animal habitats. Thank you for sharing your house!

The house is less than a mile off the highway, yet very secluded. There is a beautiful view of the sunset off the back deck. There is plenty of space inside the house for the entire family.

We had a lovely weekend at Twisted Laurel to celebrate graduation. The house was plenty roomy with two sitting areas in addition to the spacious dining area over looking the mountain. We enjoyed lovely sunsets both evenings as well as all the necessary utensils to make a full breakfast and cook dinner. The beds and linens were exceptionally comfy and CLEAN! Hope to return for a longer visit!
