This secluded property is roughly 5 miles from Boone and App State and 7 from Grandfather Mountain, 3 ski resorts, and Blowing Rock.
Our 90-year old Carriage House was completely restored in Feb 2017. Each floor of the house is a stand-alone residence, with private entrances and full kitchens.
Former guests proclaim, "Gorgeous, romantic, perfect location". "a porch that alone makes the stay worthwhile". "Would recommend the location, place, and host!". "Best Airbnb stay I've had to date."
Located in historic Valle Crucis (between Boone and Banner Elk), this residence is the entire upper floor of our newly renovated Carriage House. Access to the floor is via a private staircase at the front of the building. The staircase can be locked at the bottom or the top. No one else lives in the Carriage House; however, our family lives in the historic farm house nearby and is available as needed.
Most of the furniture in the residence is original to the property or the area circa 1928. At 1,200 sq ft this two bedroom, one bathroom features two queen beds and one queen sized sofa bed. It has a fully stocked kitchen including Keurig coffee machine, stove, oven, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, and kitchen basics for six. The private outdoor deck is shielded from the rain and snow; however, provides a tranquil atmosphere ideal for reading a favorite book or enjoying a delicious cup of coffee.
Relax in the hammock and listen to the birds or watch the fireflies in the forest. Or feel free to borrow a couple of our inflatable tubes and float the Watauga River.
Additionally, the residence has a 70 inch flat screen television in the main living area. With the attached AppleTV, you can access your movie or music libraries via your Netflix, Amazon, or other related account.
You will have access to the entire Shull's Farm, including river front access to the Watauga River... just a short 5 min walk away. Explore the granite cliffs overlooking the river and valley or enjoy tranquil walks through the pine and spruce forest.
If you ride a motorcycle, we can accommodate two bikes in the garage. We can easily accommodate three cars.
Interaction with guests
We live on the property and are available as quickly as you need us. We'd also love to tell you about the area, give dining recommendations, or things only locals know. However, if you prefer solitude, we provide keyless entry to the unit... just message us if you need us.
