After shutting down the cabin for a week to make needed changes, I am happy to announce I have a brand new cleaning crew of 3 wonderful competent ladies, and a maintenance man!
The 'Catbird Seat' is our beautiful custom cedar home in exclusive Leatherwood Mountians, 'sitting pretty' on the top of a ridge with 270 degree views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Breathtaking sunsets, morning mists, autumn colors and milky way nights can be seen from the hot tub on the front covered porch. We have updated the kitchen with all new appliances and huge sink giving everything a sleek look.
2BR/2B ; Large Family Room/Kitchen Area, wood floors, tongue and groove walls & Cathedral ceiling make this home very inviting . On cool nights you can sit in front of the gas fireplace and get toasty warm. It's 23,000 BTU's warm up the entire house. The kitchen has beautiful stone tiles and solid pine cabinets. Washer/Dryer has it's own niche , behind bi-fold doors. Master Bedroom has a king size bed and adjoining full bath; Guest room has a Queen bed across the hall from another full bath. Numerous windows allow natural light to come in, along with views of wildlife and nature. On almost 5,000 acres and 100 miles of private trails, Leatherwood Mountains is the perfect getaway for trail riders and hikers who enjoy packing a lunch and heading up the mountain to enjoy the rushing water of the creeks, the views, and the serenity. Horse boarding available; Guided trails rides can be arranged. Hiking can be done starting right out the front door. There are over 100 miles of hiking trails in this development of 2,000 acres. Also available: Kayaking, rafting, fishing, restaurants. 18 miles from Boone, Blowing Rock, and all the ski resorts; you will have your days filled. Or, you just might want to spend the time in the hot tub with that special someone enjoying a romantic, secluded getaway. A perfect laid back experience,. If you are looking for a more 'polished' Ritz-Carlton type accommodations I can recommend outstanding properties, mine is just not one of them. I do not want to disappoint anyone. Some guests get distressed over bugs.While my outdoorsy guests think nothing about sweeping up a few bugs that squeezed thru the front door, laying there dead to greet them. It is not a modern hotel with air tight seams. Moths and bugs do get in. We are not in the wilderness, like some cabins, where you have to deal with the bear getting into your trash, or personal items. But a cabin in the mountains will have upsets from time to time. Know that before you book. Experience the spontaneity in a safe environment . Do here what you would do at home if you had to fix something; if the supplies are in the closet, use them. Change the light bulbs if they burn out, use more anti-foam in the hot tub if needed, use the extra sheets that are in the closet if need be. Unfortunately,there is no button on my phone that says 'housekeeping'. Serious negative reviews about things mentioned above not only hurt me, but potential guests as well. They want to know HOW problems were handled. I cannot fix something if I do not know about; And I would hate reading about a problem that spoiled your vacation in a REVIEW that could have been fixed so easily had the guest been willing to call or email me.

About the owner: My husband and I fell in love with horses and mountains on a family vacation to Montana. To get away from the Arizona summer heat, we went every summer.
After my son started college we decided to buy horses. What a disaster ! Eventually we did find 2 well broke Tennessee Walkers that we rode in the Arizona mountains, across rivers no less! We were naive; We trusted the advice of other horsemen, and had a great time. We felt no fear crossing rushing water waist deep. NOW, 20 years later? You would not be able to get me to do that for love or money!
We relocated to the Southeast with our 2 horses, dogs, and kitties and set up Morningstar Farms.
Suddenly, finding myself on 40 acres, instead of a postage stamp, my horse collection grew!
We enjoyed 10 years of breeding and raising Tennessee Walkers; getting involved with rescue organizations , and trail riding with friends.
Why the Owner Chose Boone: Our dream was to find a place in the mountains with trails right outside our door. Loading up horses in the trailer and driving hours was no longer do-able.
We found our 'Catbird Seat' on top of the mountain surrounded by nature's beauty. Vacationing in the mountains has always seemed the ultimate in relaxation. In it's casual setting, our cabin is easy to feel relaxed and laid back in.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: With retirement still a few years off, we enjoy our cabin on occasional weekends. I want to share the peaceful feeling of these mountains with others. When my guests arrive home after a few days, or week in these tranquil surroundings, they can pass that feeling onto their family and friends. It will make the world a better place.
