If you are looking for a unique and rustic cabin to relax and recharge in a beautiful mountain setting, you've found it! Private, yet convenient to all the High Country has to offer. Come and experience the charm of a 'real' pioneer log cabin. Enjoy the simple pleasure of nature's beauty and early Americana bundled into one. Take a deep breath, now...exhale!

Sleepy Creek is made from the logs of two authentic 1800's log cabins (from Kentucky and West Virginia) that were re-assembled and joined to make a very unique and comfortable vacation get away. This cabin is constructed of beautiful antique hand hewn poplar and oak logs, wonderful stonework, complete with a cedar shake roof. It is located on over 4 acres of wooded land with a beautiful stream running past the cabin through the entire acreage.

The interior features large rooms with (2) bedrooms and (2) bathrooms. The master is located on main floor (queen) and has a small private bathroom. Black walnut plank flooring, antique knotty pine paneling and soap stone block fireplace blend with newer components to set the stage for this cozy retreat. The second bedroom encompasses the entire upstairs (one double and two single beds) with vaulted ceiling and ceiling fans.

The rustic farm house style kitchen is fully equipped, features all new appliances, but maintains it's country charm with period pieces, including an authentic turn of the century Hoosier Cabinet. There is also a separate laundry room. A 2nd bathroom is located downstairs. But the best part is the covered front porch. Relax to the view of the very noisy creek and the many hummingbirds that frequent the cabin in the summer. Don't forget to enjoy a picnic or nap by the creek - benches,picnic table and hammock provided. Sleepy Creek provides the perfect setting for your relaxation, comfort and enjoyment.



Sleepy Creek can accommodate a max. party of (4) people or less and is conveniently located to Boone, Blowing Rock, Todd/New River, W. Jefferson and access to the Blue Ridge Parkway is just over our ridge.

About The Owner

Choosing the perfect vacation home is so incredibly difficult and personal. We knew we wanted to restore an antique log cabin, with all the trimmings that come along with the simple, unique craftsmanship of our early pioneer heritage. Twenty years of dreaming, off and on again searching, found us in what we believe is an incredibly beautiful section of the N.C. Mountains. Located in a quiet valley setting, with a cold noisy mountain stream to lull us to sleep, yet within convenient proximity to nearby towns, and Parkway access just a hop, skip and jump away - we were home! A few years, and a lot of hard work later, Sleepy Creek was created, and has become a very special place for us to unwind, enjoy simple pleasures, and make special memories with family and friends. We hope you will visit and enjoy the cabin and area as much as our family.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1997

Wow, what a cabin! My parents, son and I couldn't have asked for more, especially for my dad's birthday. The cabin was very comfortable and clean but needed better reading light. We loved hiking in the woods and playing in the stream. I would recommend this cabin anytime.

Relaxing and comfortable, in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for me and my son and daughter to start our vacation! The home is amazing, immaculately clean, and very inviting in every other way. But the setting in which it was built is incredible. The little stream can be heard from inside the cabin, and was, for me, the most relaxing feature of the property. We enjoyed exploring a cave while in the area, and trying the different restaurants in Boone, but it was always wonderful to return to the cabin after our adventures. I recommend this property very highly!

Amazing cabin and property

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this place justice. It is absolutely beautiful. It looks like something out of a magazine. The landscaping and creek are stunning. Creek access is very easy. We enjoyed our stay with two little dogs and two teenaged boys (15 & 18). We had so much fun tossing the football, grilling out, playing with the dogs in the yard and creek. Quality family time. Enjoyed coffee on the porch watching the hummingbirds and incredible amount of butterflies. There was a nest of baby birds in one of the ferns and we enjoyed watching the parents bringing them worms. They would stay off to the side and make clicking noises until we moved inside so they could feed them. So cute. The cabin was very comfortable and rustic. We had everything we needed from kitchen items to toilet paper and towels. Plenty of cleaning supplies as well. I was a little worried when I realized there was no air conditioning but it wasn't a big issue. The house is in a very shady pocket with a canopy of trees. We opened the windows and turned on the fans. Actually got a little cool at times! Kathe was so wonderful to work with and gave us lots of information and tips. I forgot to call her to check in when we arrived (sorry, I was excited!) but she called to welcome us and make sure we had what we needed (thanks!). One thing I wanted to mention if you are leaving on Sunday. The landfill doesn't open until 1pm. That doesn't work for a 10am checkout. So if you will have more than one kitchen bag of trash, take some off the day before. We didn't realize this until Sunday morning. Riding with stinky trash until you find a dumpster is not preferred (ha!). Read and re-read the rental agreement and guest package. It was very helpful and we kept it with us in the car for directions also. The cabin is very convenient to Boone and West Jefferson. We went to both. Also very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and lots of hiking trails. We went to Price Lake and rented kayaks one morning. We wouldn't hesitate to rent this cabin again. It is well loved and felt like home. We couldn't wait to return every afternoon to just hang out after our morning adventures. Highly recommend.

Private, peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was restful and quite rejuvenating. The atmosphere outdoors is beautiful and the cabin is well-outfitted. Drifting off to sleep with the songs of nature presented a welcomed change for us.

Beautiful and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful and welcoming in every way. Definitely use the owner's directions and not your GPS! The yard, woods, and stream in front made for a perfect setting. Everything was very clean and very well appointed. Kathe was great to work with during the rental process and called to welcome us to her cabin. We would highly recommend this property and hope to go back in the future.

Once you catch your breath, go have some fun! Boone is just a short drive away. Visit the wonderful downtown shops, catch one of the many concerts, plays or cultural events at Appalachian University. Make time to explore Blowing Rock , great shopping and really good 'eating' places. The kids would enjoy a trip to Tweetsie Railroad, local gem mines and Grandfather Mountain's Swinging Bridge and Natural Habitat Zoo. In the opposite direction towards W. Jefferson, grab your golf bag and head to Mountain Aire Golf Club and enjoy a 18 hole public course in a beautiful mountain setting. Make sure you visit Historic Todd, there you can rent inner-tubes, canoes and kayaks to float down the New River or sit back and enjoy music and story telling events held in the park during the summer.

So, come and enjoy... go as fast or as slow as you want. There is always so much to experience close by in our lovely NC mountains.
