Blowing Rock cabin description

Just 3 miles outside of Blowing Rock, nestled in a bowl, sits A Cabin in the Woods. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath cedar log cabin with vaulted ceiling & spacious loft has a gameroom with ping pong & foosball, gas log fireplace, jetted bath, & much more. Relax on the covered porch & listen to the creek, while you soak up the solitude on this 22 acre tract of wooded forest, or take a hike on the trails & investigate the mountains & streams in your own private little park. An interesting mix of rustic & modern, you will be sure to enjoy the log cabin feel, while enjoying all the modern conveniences.

You'll be pleasantly surprised at the abundance of activities throughout the year. Located just minutes away, you will find Blowing Rock, which offers some of the finest dining, unique shops, & beautiful parks with tennis courts, playground, and riding stables. Located outside of Blowing Rock on your way to Boone, is the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway and longtime favorite, Tweetsie Railroad.


Surrounding Area: With its many overlooks, picnic areas, and hiking trails, cruising the Blueridge Parkway is a popular way to spend your day. Boone enjoys many year round cultural events sponsored by Appalachian State University. Take State Road 105 out towards Linville to find one of the most unique biospheres in the world, Grandfather Mountain. You can hike, see native animals, and walk across the mile high swinging bridge. Everything from skiing to white water rafting is within close proximity to A Cabin in the Woods.

Local Skiing: A Cabin in the Woods is located within an hour's drive to Beech Mtn., Sugar Mtn, and Appalachian Ski Mtn. Our favorite, Appalachian is only 5.3 miles from the cabin. Very family friendly with great Swiss Ski Instructors.

                                    The very secluded cabin was great. Glass window view was awesome. Moon light at night great, sunshine in the morning was perfect. Woke up in the morning with deer down in the hollow by the creek. Heard turkey down calling down by the creek. Lady bugs every where! Great fire pit and downstairs games for the whole crew. Excellent cabin, can't wait to stay again.

                                    We found this great, spacious cabin to be very cozy and suited our family perfectly. Our Border Collie (we crate her in the house at home too) loved the woods and the creek below. We hiked all over and found future surprises that the owner was building. The kitchen was well-prepared, the beds large and comfortable and the basement had ping pong, Wii and foosball. Bring your Wii games! No worries about firewood unless you want to use the firepit outside as the fireplace inside is gas / remote! Blowing Rock is convenient with great dining and Appalachian Ski is 15 min away. We were going to Ski Sugar the last day but opted to just relax and enjoy the cabin. The hosts were great and responsive and since there is a lockbox, leaving is as simple as running the dishes and start the sheets in the washer- simple. There is satellite and wireless internet as well as a good library of videos,books, and games. We found that next time, we could share it with another family with plenty of room.

                                    Recommended for: Families with teenagers, sightseeing, pet owners, romantic getaway, age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, adventure seekers.

                                    What an amazing weekend for our family. Our children range form 17-23....all girls and they had a blast. We loved the cabin and all the ammenities. We laughed for hours around the fire and made so many awesome memories. Kim and I have always come up by ourselves, and decided to invite the girls. BEST decesion we ever made. Loved walking in the woods and the cabin and the fire and the sleeping arrangements. We brought all the food and did not want to leave. We look forward to coming again next year! Thanks Bob & Beth for a great weekend! P.S......the dogs did NOT want to leave :) We would move in tomorrow and never leave......

                                    We spent a wonderful week at A Cabin in the Woods and it was just plain awesome. My husband and our two dogs had a great time! We saw turkeys on the first and second days and a deer on our last evening at the cabin. The dogs LOVED running around on the 22-acre grounds! The cabin had everything we needed and was in great proximity to Blowing Rock and the Blue Ridge Pkwy. which made it easy to go out for a day of hiking. Sitting on the porch and hearing the stream below was so relaxing...so was the fire pit. It was so calm being secluded but yet so close to conveniences and local stores. We definitly will make this an annual trip! We hated to leave but cannot wait to return! Thanks Beth and Bob, your hospitality was wonderful and we can't wait to see you next year!!

                                    We spent the most wonderful month in "The Cabin in the Woods". The comfort and location provided a perfect spot to escape the heat of July. The owners were extremely helpful and gracious. Our dog was a welcomed guest and he found "the dog within"while running through the creek and the woods. We hated to leave this lovely spot and certainly would return at a moment's notice. I would recommend this home to anyone who wants to enjoy the peace and quiet of this beautiful area.

                                    My daughter and I and our two rescued dogs stayed at A Cabin in the Woods the last week of June 2010. It was just what we hoped for and we had a wonderful stay and can't wait to return. The cabin is just beautiful and secluded yet close to Blowing Rock and Boone. Bob Vonnegut was kind enough to drop in on us the first day and took us on a mini hike of the property. He could not have been nicer. This is truly a special place and we feel lucky to have found it.

                                    Excellent property. Loved the trails and the creek on the property. Sitting around the campfire every night was a family favorite. Kids enjoyed the ping pong and the foosball and had plenty of room in the loft. Adults enjoyed relaxing on the porch. Kitchen not as well stocked as I would have liked, but it had essentials. Owners extremely helpful and friendly. Canyons restaurant in Blowing Rock was fun and the food was good. The view there was awesome.

                                    We stayed at the cabin over the first weekend in October and really enjoyed our stay. The cabin is very secluded and very nice with all the amenties of home. The owners are very nice and very accomodating. We would highly recommend staying here as we plan to come back again! Thanks!

                                  About the owner: My husband and I lived in the Florida Keys, but had been coming up to the mountains each summer to hike. Each time we came up, it seemed like we stayed longer and longer! We began looking for property, thinking that we would like to have a summer home. After a few years, we found a beautiful 22 acre piece of property just outside of the town of Blowing Rock and built a log cabin. We have since then moved up here to the nearby city of Lenoir. We love the four seasons and all of the different activities that each season offers. Our cabin is nestled in the woods and gives us a feeling of calm serenity.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Blowing Rock:
                                  We chose to purchase a vacation rental in this location because of the many and varied, wonderful activities that this area has to offer.
