"My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed a week at the cabin and recommend it without reservation to those who want quietude and a home base for exploration of the NC mountains, sights and sounds in the area.
Kathe was easy to contact when we had questions getting oriented to the place and space. She provided lots of information upon our booking that helped us script our plans for traveling to near areas.
The layout of the cabin was as stated in the advertising. The cabin can easily accommodate four individuals, but more than that might get tight. There are wall unit ACs downstairs in the main room and master bedroom and they worked well when utilized. One suggestion: Put an wall AC in the roomy loft as it did get a bit warm for two guests who joined us for two nights.
The cabin is very comfortable and clean. It is situated well off the proverbial "beaten path" and that appealed to us. More on that in a bit.
The cabin furnishings were nice, rustic and attractive. The kitchen is fully furnished and appliances are top-notch. This is an overall beautiful home and location. The cabin sits at the end of a road surrounded by lovely natural woods and a very well-maintained yard.....full of beautiful flowers in July.
Our morning hikes up and down the several access roads to the cabin acclimated us to the altitude and to the hilly terrain that dominates this area of North Carolina.
While the cabin is off the beaten path from Boone (about 10 miles or so), we still had easy drives to Boone, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk going back to the southwest from the Boone area.
Had the cabin not been where it was, we would not have discovered West Jefferson, Mount Jefferson State Park and most impressively, New River State Park. All of these locales are to the north or northeast/west of the cabin and an easy drive.
Hence this is a fine, affordable and private location for exploring many of the sights, sounds and tastes (especially the many brewpubs, restaurants and microbreweries, IMO) nearby. Location, location, location !!!!!
Thanks to Kathe for a fine visit and her courteous consideration from start to finish.
