The large lawn is perfect for children to play, group games, and picnics.

ReviewsWrite a review
Spent Labor Day Weekend at this property with family from age 8 to 82. Great, great house for so many people. Plenty of space inside and outside. Loved the old porch swing. Found all the various nooks and crannies throughout the house provided great places for conversation. The yard and fun climbing trees kept the you and young-at-heart occupied. We hope to return next year for another reunion.

About the owner: We are a family of five that work in Asia. We love to travel the world, eat exotic foods, watch movies and play games together. We love helping other people and seeing their standards of living increase as God gives us the chance to serve others around the world.
Why the Owner Chose Boone:
We consider Boone, NC as our second home. We absolutely love the mountains of this area and find instant peace as our car rounds the bend and we see our home in view. Because we live in a more difficult part of the world, this home is truly our 'Dream House' and where we find the chance to re-group, rest, and eat great food.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Sitting on the porch in one of the red rocking chairs and listening/watching the river; Sitting by the fireplace on cold nights; Driving around our neighborhood at sunset and counting deer and other wildlife; soaking in the hot tub, especially in the winter; watching college football games on the huge screen tv's.; Exploring the quaint towns that surround us; Cheering for the ASU football team
