Relaxing private vacation for a couple, a small family, or good friends...Or, Blue Ridge Trail Riding Vacation with your own horses! Living quarters are on one level that has only one step onto the deck (handicapped friendly, with a little help). Located on 16 mountain acres, Rolllin' N the Hay is the perfect equestrian set up: 4 riders enjoy the cypress sided two bedrooms and 4 horses enjoy the four box stalls below. Leatherwood Mountain Resort boasts 75+ miles of mountain horse trails that traverse directly through this 16 acre property. A captivating vacation: relaxing long soaks in the hot tub after a long trail ride, unobstructed mountain views from the raised deck chairs, brilliant star lit nights from the open deck (no light pollution here!); cherished moments await in the peace and solitude of this secluded mountain barn.
But don't let the horse facilities deter non-horsemen! Rollin' N the Hay is also a wonderful place for couples, small families, honeymooner's, anniversaries, or friends to get away from 'IT ALL'! Private, beautiful views, nature right outside the door, in the middle of wilderness, hiking trails, pool, tennis, fishing, and tubing are for everyone to enjoy.
Rollin N the Hay is located just off Tin Horn Road (1.8 miles from the Leatherwood Mountains security gate) and about 1/4 mile down graveled Flag Branch Road; while trailer parking is ample, the steep grade and tight turning requires a 'he-man' truck (not a wimpy truck or long rig)! Nightly board is $20 per horse, bring required shavings, hay and feed; a current health certificate from out of state horses and negative coggins for all horses is required to be shown at the Leatherwood Stables Office (closes at 5PM) in the Saddlebrook Restaurant Building at the entrance to Leatherwood. Rollin' N the Hay welcomes your other furry family members as well (pets up to 35 pounds) for a per pet fee of $50.
Rollin' N the Hay feels like stepping into an 'old shoe'. Warm cypress wood, stained glass panels, Frederick Remington cowboy prints, nature collections, your horses just below, and of course modern 'must haves' WiFi and digital television; who could ask for more to get away from the hustle and bustle of the 'real world'? Ask about partnering Rollin' N the Hay with the owner's close by log cabin, Hemlock Point and its two stall barn, to create a unique Equestrian compound for large groups of up to 10-12 guests and 6-8 horses (10% off rental rate for both homes on the same contract).

There is Leatherwood Mountains horse trailer parking near the stables at the base of the mountain (within 2 miles of Rollin' N the Hay cabin/barn). Call with instructions for longer horse trailers.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Love the quote by an unknown author: 'The Human Spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man.' Scott and Mary Helen Ellis; we love the rural life! Our passions range from the oldest town in NC on the Pamlico River to the northern NC Blue Ridge Mountains. We love all things nature: woods, wildlife, Celtic music, boating, hiking, horseback riding, crafting, gardening...and all things old: antiques, genealogy, NC's oldest town, and old legends. Give us the views across rivers, oceans and mountains to the most sophisticated views across the grand cities of the world. We wonder at the remarkable beauty and elegance in a bevy of butterflies sunning on a rock in a bold mountain stream...as opposed to the brush strokes of someone hanging on a wall, lit by a bulb, in a stuffy building...Our fervent belief is that nothing mankind can do is ever on par with what our Creator did!
Why the Owner Chose Boone: Every year of our 30+ years of marriage, we have ventured to the NC mountains. In 1997 we made the leap of faith to purchase our property at Leatherwood Mountains Resort, appreciating the concept of stewardship in creating a human presence but maintaining the wilderness for all generations.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Our Concept: seclusion, just you and your family/friends, your horses, the beautiful wilderness all around, the long range views of the glorious mountains, peace...
