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.

                                  Year Purchased: 2001

                                  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.
