Property description

Situated on 2 acres on the western slopes of the North Carolina Appalachian Mountains, Fern Hill Overlook offers magnificent mountain views, lots of privacy, and is conveniently accessible to local attractions and activities.

Curve up the driveway between rock ledges and rhododendron to a rustic cabin which is not easily visible from the road. A large carved bear greets your sight as you round the bend in the driveway.

Park under the deck and walk up the stone steps. At the top of the steps, there is a bench big enough for two and a stone patio. It's a great spot for quiet reflection. Go through the house or follow the deck to the front porch for BREATHTAKING mountain views and a glimpse of the river in winter. No other cabins are between you and the river. Put the two rocking chairs together and share nature's beauty and majesty with someone special. Or, soak in the hot tub on the deck and enjoy the scenic views and forest setting. Be sure to keep an eye out for deer passing by but please respect this property as a sanctuary for the native flora and fauna.

This cabin has many amenities including full length windows, an updated kitchen and open floor plan. It is nicely furnished with rustic style furniture and accents. The master bedroom with a reading area takes full advantage of the windows and views. Firewood is provided for the wood burning stove which keeps the cabin cozy in even the coldest weather.

For quick supplies, there's a grocery and gas station just around the bend. Located only 20 minutes from Boone or Blowing Rock, it's a short ride for shopping, touring, or skiing. Head in the other direction and you can spend the day in Tennessee at Watauga Lake! Browse the collection of books in the cabin for reading on a rainy day.

Bear images and figures are included in the decor. Count the bears in and around the cabin and turn in your total to confirm whether you found all of them. Further details are available from the property manager.

Fern Hill Overlook is accessible year round but four wheel drive or chains are recommended for this property in winter months due to the significant slope of the driveway.

Enjoy majestic mountain views, the crisp tang of the air, the abundance of wildlife, the splendor of the leaves in fall, the sound of the river after a rain, and the character of this mountain community! In this very private setting, the hot tub on the deck is a great way to relax while you enjoy the view.

It's a short drive to Valle Crucis. Be sure to visit the Mast General Store and Annex there. Music in the Valle features local musicians in the community park on Friday nights during the summer. For “downtown” shopping, it is about 20 minutes from Boone. There’s a great grocery right around the corner from the cabin for any necessities. Ski resorts in the area provide sporting activity in the winter. For warmer weather, there are opportunities for horseback riding, kayaking, canoeing and whitewater rafting.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

Why Valle Crucis:
In May 2006 we found this permanent private rustic vacation cabin which is perfect for us. It is a truly special spot that has a feeling of seclusion on 2 acres, an awesome view of the mountains and seasonal views of the Watauga River.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Hot tub for relaxation. Rocking chair front porch. Close to the river. Wooded. For necessities, there is a nearby grocery, deli and gas station. We consider this property a refuge for the wildlife and the people who visit. Please respect our desire to maintain this property as a sanctuary for everything within its boundaries. We hope that your stay here will be an experience to store in your chest of treasured memories.
