  • Beech cycling

    "Property was in near new condition, clean, comfortable, and great views. Since unit is at parking lot level, no stairs to deal with. Convenient location to Boone, Beech, and Blowing Rock."

  • Another Wonderful Visit to Sunyata

    "We had the pleasure of a return visit to the cabin this past April and it was even more wonderful than the first time. It is hard to adequately describe the relaxation and contentment that the views from the deck evoke. Seemingly endless views stretch to the horizon, hawks circle above the tree line riding thermals, and the wind moves through the high branches with whispers and roars. We were once again there for a music festival but find the cabin so compelling that we are just as inclined to hang out, pick tunes, and drink some cold beers there! We had the added pleasure of meeting Leslie and some friends this year. She is truly a delight and we look forward to renting from her in years to come. It is a wonderful and healing place. Don't forget the AWD for your vehicle. It is a steep but fun drive up!"

  • Romantic Weekend Away

    "My husband and I had a wonderful weekend staying in this cabin!! It was Sept but the fireplace was nice and the cabin was the perfect size and the furnishings were beautiful!! I enjoyed a long soak in the jacuzzi tub! Great location just mins from downtown Blowing Rock and hiking. Owner was great at suggesting restaurants and hiking trails. The Gamekeeper restaurant (basically right across the street) was delicious and the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary! Would highly recommend the cabin and the restaurant!!"

  • Plenty of Beech Mtn Options...BUT THIS IS WHERE YOU WANT TO BE !!!

    "So our family (myself, wife, 2 kids) went into this last minute trip totally blind...literally emailing, calling, filling out online contact forms, etc while on the road and in route. Had a 5 hour window to find a place to stay and truth be told, at the time we weren't too concerned about the quality of accommodations...more-so about 1) finding a place and 2) not limiting ourselves to one particular area...Sugar Mtn, Ski Beech, Hawksnest, etc, all having things we wanted to check out. From the start Heavenly Cabins stood out. Responded not only quickly but the level of courtesy, hospitality, knowledge-level, and overall great nature of this owner was unprecedented. We ended up basing our final decision on this factor alone. Having initiated numerous communications with close to 50 owners, we eventually lost track of who owned what/where, eventually wasn't even sure which of the 50 we were booking. All we knew was the price was great, the person we were talking to was great, and already felt taken care even prior to commitment/payment. Then we arrived...WOW!!! Flat out breathtaking. Everything had happened so fast, the wife and I sat over the next mornings coffee wondering "if we found this on such short notice / amazing price...what else is out there”. Kinda turned into a silly game of “who can point out a better house” as we drove around, lol. Didn’t take long to realize we simply hit the jackpot. THIS AMAZING HOME SURPASSED EVERY EXPECTATIONS BY LEAPS AND BOUNDS!!! 3 stories of beauty, comfort, pure awe! As for our initial "centralized location" priority...everything was so close we hit each multiple times each day. Would grab tickets from one, go play at another while we waited, then jump into our session. In fact, Beech and Sugar especially were so close we actually drove right past them our first time out. So be sure to GPS them before you leave the house. No joke…I was just following road signs while my wife pulled up directions on iPhone…by the time she hit “start route” it had us making a U-Turn. Last thing I feel I should point out that this place is truly a 5 out of 5 star location (literally). If you look closely, the only reason it is listed on this site as a "4.8" is because of user error...low star rating but their comments being nothing but praises. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND STOP STRESSING OVER WHERE TO STAY. THIS IS THE ONE!!! Only negative is…we’re forever spoiled!!"

Blue Ridge Mountains Travel Tips

Named for the bluish color they exhibit from a distance, the Blue Ridge Mountains are a part of the Appalachians, and in North Carolina, they are certainly a sight to see. The area is ideal for an outdoor getaway complete with plenty of hiking, skiing, fishing, kayaking, biking and other exciting activities.

The Blue Ridge Mountains allow you to step back and take a deep breath full of crisp, mountain air. Tensions will ease and you can enjoy visiting local wineries to take a tour and sample their best reds and whites, check out fun events like music festivals, visit museums and galleries or feast on Southern homestyle cooking.

In the fall you can witness the stunning beauty as the leaves of the forests change to their brilliant shades of red, orange and yellow, or come in the winter when the snow begins to fall and creates a winter wonderland. In the spring and summer, temperatures warm up and the beautiful flowers begin to bloom once again.

Things to Do in Blue Ridge Mountains

- Blowing Rock: North Carolina’s oldest attraction is not one to be missed. Blowing Rock is a cliff 4,000 feet above sea level overhanging the Johns River Gorge that provides a wonderfully scenic experience with a waterfall, lush gardens and an observation deck where you can take in the sights. This spot is said to be a magical place where star-crossed lovers - a Cherokee brave and a Chickasaw maiden - fell in love, so bring your sweetie here and feel the sparks fly.

- Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site: Step back in time to experience The Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site, which preserves the residence of the famous American writer and poet. Connemara, the 264-acre farm, was purchased by Sandburg is 1945 when he sought out peace and solitude for his writing. Today, you can visit the farm to learn about the three-time Pulitzer Prize winner and his work. You can also see three remaining breeds of Mrs. Sandburg’s champion dairy goats that are cared for on the grounds. In addition to touring the home and farm, you can stroll down 5 miles of trails that cover the property, taking you past lakes, woods, pastures, flower and vegetable gardens and an apple orchard.

- Blue Ridge Parkway: Blue Ridge Parkway is one of America’s most visited national parks and offers an amazing drive down 469 miles that connect Great Smoky Mountains National Park to Shenandoah National Park. Blue Ridge Parkway delivers leafy green forests, towering mountain peaks and picturesque landscapes surrounding exciting hiking trails and picnic areas where you can stop and enjoy a quick meal.

- Apple Hill Orchard & Cider Mill: If you enjoy the tasty crunch of freshly picked apples, be sure to make a stop at Apple Hill Orchard & Cider Mill. Since 1930, this apple farm has been ripe for visitors to pick their favorite fruit after taking a wagon tour of the orchard. Sip some delicious homemade cider as you browse the country store for fruit butters, cheese, jam, fudge, preserves, apples and apple-themed gifts.

- The Biltmore Estate: Experience America’s largest home with a trip to The Biltmore Estate. This 250-room house (which looks more like a castle) features century-old gardens and looks out across Blue Ridge Mountains. Enjoy a variety of activities like horseback riding or rafting after stopping at the Antler Village and Winery for a free tasting. This massive home is still owned by one of the America's wealthiest families - the Vanderbilts, so you can bet there will be decadence at every turn.
