Boone lodge description

Be one of the first to experience this private family retreat offered for the first time as a vacation opportunity for you! Luxury awaits with this 6 bedroom 5 and 1/2 bath, 6,000 square foot home located in a gated community 3200 feet high on a ridge with magnificent long range views from every window. Comfortably accommodate 19-22 of your family and friends. Reservations limited to 5 families please. Very open floor plan with two story vaulted family room.

Entertainment for all is included with a large, fully equipped kitchen with double convection ovens perfect for holiday cooking and seating for 14. A game room including a full size pool table, skee ball, foose ball,dart board and ping pong. A cabin inspired movie/tv viewing room with plenty of seating and a flat screen tv/blue ray DVD player. Direct TV Satellite service is available in most bedrooms. The children will be excited about their own 'bunk room' with a safer bed arrangement than the traditional bunk bed with 4 twin beds with pull out trundles, a train table (after a day at Tweetsie Railroad), children's nature books, play kitchen and assorted toys.

Custom decorator touches abound throughout the home, the master boasts a heated tile floor, glass vessel sinks on a granite counter top and a pebble shower floor. Contemporary country furnishings with a tasteful touch of mountain inspired themes (no mountain home is complete without a wood carved bear) and soothing colors add to your 'ahhhh.'

Step outside to relax on the stone patio or deck or to walk the community roads and hiking trails. Grab a fishing rod to 'catch' in any of the four ponds on the property.

                            We were three families with 9 children and I can say this was the best cabin we have ever stayed at. The game room kept the children entertained and the slopes and hills surrounding the cabin were always a great place to take a stroll or sled when the snow arrived. The rooms were very comfortable and the children's combined room gave them a sense of a sleep over because you could sleep 8 children in one room. Kitchen was magnificent and we easy to use. Views were stunning. I would recommend this cabin to anyone. I look forward to retiring soon and possibly in summer.

                            We had around 18 people and a fine time was had by all! We liked about every feature of the home: game room, bar/kitchen area, back porch area, bedrooms. (The downstairs bedroom with the two twins was super cozy). Nice little trail around the area, so we all had a fun little hike. Around 20 min from Boone. We went into town one time for B-B-Q and it wasn't that far. Visited the Mast General Store and Valle Crucis. ABSOLUTELY gorgeous sunset views from the house. It's a pretty great place, and we would definitely return. Great value for the bucks. Blessings :-)

                            This house was perfect for a large group. We spent most of the weekend cooking and gathering either in the main room or the game room. Plenty of space with gorgeous views. The house was also well stocked with everything you would need. Beautifully decorated with lots of character.

                            Our visit to this amazing mountain house was for a weekend with lots of good friends that were in Boone/Mountain City for a wedding. We had 18 people and it was PERFECT! The house is very sturdy and very well maintained. The setting is beautiful! The pix do give a good idea of what you will enjoy when you get there! We had guests from 3 months to 65 years and everyone was comfortable. Boone is a cute mountain town with lots of good restaurants and shops but we really enjoyed just being at the house. It is close to the Blue Ridge Parkway if you like for hiking. I have rented many houses and this one met all our expectations. Its peaceful setting gave us all a great place to hang out and enjoy each others company. If that is what you are interested in- this house is perfect!

                            What a great weekend with friends at this very special property! The large common space was perfect for meals and enjoying each other's company. The design of the home and the attention to detail in creating a mountain retreat was remarkable, from the bear claw design on the arms of a chair to lamps made of antlers and so forth. Our boys enjoyed the games on the lower level.The beautiful view was icing on the cake. Thanks for a great stay.

                            This is a great house for large families and groups getting away for the weekend. The house was well stocked and had gorgeous views in every direction. We enjoyed making a large fire and were able to cook all meals in the house with seats for everyone to eat. People had originally planned on doing more site seeing, but then ended up staying at the house to enjoy its amenities, walk in the neighborhood and enjoy the views!

                            Great house and excellent communication with owners! We were two families with children and had more than enough space to enjoy the gorgeous views. There was plenty of entertainment for kids (they watched movies, played skeetball, etc) . The kitchen amenities allowed us to easily cook three homemade meals a day for 11 people. When it got cold we enjoyed sitting by the roaring fire while the kids enjoyed the game room downstairs. All in all a great experience.

                            Seven Bears Lodge is simply beautiful (as gorgeous as the pictures are- it's even better in person- especially the views!). There are gorgeous views from every window, plenty of space for our three families, lovely, well-maintained, decor, a warm and inviting living room with a wood burning fire place, and many more wonderful amenities! Our children loved playing ski ball and sledding on the nearby hills. They especially loved that they could share a room with their cousins- it is huge and filled with toys! The kitchen had plenty of room for multiple "family chefs" and everything was very accessible. The road leading up to the house was icy for a few days while we were there (we slid even with four wheel drive-but once we put chains on we were fine). The owner was very kind, provided clear instructions, helpful information about the area, and even had firewood waiting for us when we arrived. We have so many wonderful memories from our stay at Seven Bears and HIGHLY recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in the area.

                            Granddad, Grandma,three children and spouses, and seven grandchildren had a perfect Thanksgiving at Seven Bears. All agreed we wanted to go back. There was plenty of room for everyone. The floor plan was truely open and freeing. There was room for all the adults to eat at the dining room table while all the kids sat at the long kitchen bar. We kept a roaring fire in the large fireplace with a raised hearth that was great for sitting on and warming up. The kids and adults enjoyed the nice gameroom. The smaller kids who usually get left out loved the Skee Ball machine. THE VIEWS WERE WONDERFULL. You could not look in any direction with out a breath taking view. There were alot of windows and glass to help enjoy those views. At first I thought the lack of window shades or curtains was going to be an issue but soon got used to it and was glad to have things opened up and to be able to see out.

                          About the owner: Coming to ski while in high school from Winston-Salem, I could have never imagined owning my own home in this incredible area! Now our family of five kids gets to enjoy everything the High Country has to offer. We are hopeful you will bring your kids to enjoy it as well.

                          Why the Owner Chose Boone:
                          When family friends decided to build a home here we found the perfect lot ourselves. We have entertained countless friends and family here for holidays, graduations, Music Fest and casual weekends - it has truly been a blessing.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
                          Very few vacation homes can accommodate 22 people with long range mountain views and luxury features.
