The cabin features three bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The master bath has a Jacuzzi and separate shower. Upstairs in the master loft is a queen-size, Shaker-style, canopy bed and day bed. Downstairs offers a queen, double, single-size beds, as well as a queen-size, pull-out sofa. These sleeping accommodations provide ample room for eight people. NEW, INTERNET!

The chalet has a 2 side wrap-around deck with a lovely view of the surrounding mountains; a trail to the Fleetwood Falls is just across the street. A lake for swimming and fishing is within a short walk. The New River flows serenely by at the base of the mountain for canoing and tubing at the base of this mountain resort.

Some of the south's best golf courses are just a few minutes away, and ski resorts conveniently located within a short distance. Near Grandfather and Blowing Rock Mtn.

About Patti Weaver

I am the original owner of the Gingerbread House. My family and I bought the lot and built the home in 1996 as a vacation home. We live in Florida, but love to escape to the cabin for all of the beautiful seasons the mountains offer. It is quite simply "my happy place", and I'm delighted to share it with others!

Patti Weaver purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Patti Weaver chose Blue Ridge Mountains

I chose the area of Fleetwood Falls to build a cabin because it is not a high tourist traffic area. Rather, it's charm is all the nature that abounds for hiking, biking, fishing, tubing, or just plain relaxing. It is also very near Boone and Blowing Rock and West Jefferson, 3 unique towns that have much to offer.

What makes this cabin unique

We are so excited to announce we have just completed renovating part of the basement to include a great additional living area and full bathroom! The Gingerbread House has been built with love and care, and many happy memories have been made there from honeymoons, family times, Girl's shopping trips, Bachelor getaways, ski and golf trips, the list goes on and on. The unique location is close enough to larger towns, but far enough away to feel a sense of peace and relaxation. I love there are so many fun things to do and see, but I can also enjoy the splendor of quiet nature if I choose to do so.

The cabin was beautiful, homey, and clean.

  • 5 of 5

There were ample towels and paper products and everything else you could need. There were only two bedrooms but lots of room for sleeping with the upstairs loft. There is a newly redone almost its own apartment downstairs if you wanted to bring a blowup mattress. The bathroom down there is gorgeous. The only thing I can say in the least negative is that it's a little difficult to maneuver the Three point turn if you have a large vehicle. I would suggest using the upper driveway if you do that.

Gingerbread was a hit!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 2 kids loved our long weekend get away to the mountains and the Gingerbread House. This was my Children's first trip ever the mountains. We were super busy/on the go being tourists but wish we could have spent more time chilling at the cabin. It was sooo peaceful, quiet and comfortable. The kids make themselves right at home. The remodeled basement was a hit with my 11 year old and my 9 year old loved the bunk room. Hubby and I could have lived on the deck on the rocking chairs. Scenery in Fleetwood and neighboring area of Todd was gorgeous...very quaint...loved all the Christmas tree farms. Hope we can come back. Definitely recommend a 4WD..roads and driveway are very steep...we just had a minivan:)

Amazing weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I spent the weekend at the gingerbread house. It is in a tucked away location right off the new river. We enjoyed the house so much! Patti has everything you could possibly need. Very quiet nice neighborhood with equally nice neighbors. We have already discussed plans to make a trip out there next summer! Thank you Patti!!!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful time staying here with my daughter and a friend. Everything was as described. My GPS actually did get me there without taking me the wrong way on one way roads. The map to the property could be changed a bit to make it easier to read and mark where it is located a bit more and maybe some landmarks. The instructions had said not to follow GPS (and probably some would get you lost). It was challenging to see the print on the map, even just looking at it inside. But the home was lovely and had everything that we needed.
