Boone cabin description

We welcome you to a time of refreshment and adventure at the River House. Resting upon 5 acres of beautiful property along the New River, this is a place for you and your friends or family to come, to be refreshed, to relax, and to play.

As you arrive, you will round a small curve and the gentle, bubbling, New River comes into view on the right side of the road. To the left side of the road is a large rolling lawn of apple trees, blueberry bushes, a grape arbor, and the River House.

This five bedroom, three bath, 3-story house is set-up off the quiet road. There are two levels of deck with your choice of outdoor entertainment options, including hot tub, grill, ping pong, outdoors fire place, rocking chairs, fishing, etc.

The top deck contains dining tables and chairs, rocking chairs, grill, sofa, chimenea, storage of the life vests & paddles for the canoes, etc. The bottom deck is made of beautiful stone pavers with a hot tub, picnic table, and table and chairs. The large lawn is perfect for children to play, group games, and picnics.

As you enter the house, you will appreciate the 25 foot cathedral ceilings and large two story windows. The kitchen is spacious and open, including a long bar area with Tibetan wood stools for chatting with the cook or gazing out the windows to the river and woods below. The kitchen opens into the dining area and living area with a large stone fireplace as the centerpiece of this room. This room is furnished in a dark leather sofa set and a 42 inch plasma HD flat screen TV.

The romantic master bedroom suite is on the main floor. The bedroom is accessed through French Doors and has large French doors exiting to a small private deck looking out to the forest and river. There is also a full bathroom, walk-in closet and a TV with DVD player.

The first floor comprises a second large family room with a 50 inch flat screen TV, two separate sitting areas, a game table, and futon sleeper couch. There are two bedrooms with queen beds, bathroom, and laundry area. The large double glass doors lead out to the hot tub deck area and lawn.

The top floor has two bedrooms and a shared bathroom. One bedroom has dark woods giving it a log cabin feel. This romantic bedroom has a pillow-top mattress queen bed, TV/DVD and sitting area. The other is the loft area has four twin beds. There is also a TV and DVD player in this bedroom. It is decorated in a log-cabin style with beautiful quilts and wooden tables.

We invite you to come and enjoy this mountain air oasis. Close to the home is an entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway. You will also be near Grandfather Mountain, Tweetsie Railroad, and 30 minutes from the ski resorts. Nearby are the charming towns of Blowing Rock, Banner Elk, Valle Crucis and others.

So come rock on the deck, sit by the fire, or relax in the hot tub and let the fresh mountain air and soothing river renew your mind and spirit.

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About: 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 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
