About Walter McCarty

Middle age couple that enjoys the outdoors. We both work and truly enjoy getting away when we can to relax in the mountains.

Walter McCarty purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Walter McCarty chose Fleetwood

My wife and I enjoy the mountains and visiting the Boone, Blowing Rock and West Jefferson areas. We had rented a cabin in the area and found that this cabin was for sale. It did not take long for us to make a decision, finalize an agreement and purchase the cabin. We look forward each year to having our family gather for the Thanksgiving Day holiday where we cut our own Christmas tree and take it home. It has become a tradition and one we intend to follow for many years to come.It is a wonderful and relaxing area to visit.

What makes this cabin unique

Very quite and relaxing. Convenient to Boone, Blowing Rock, West Jefferson and all of the attractions that are in the area. We have added a large floor to ceiling stone fireplace to enjoy quiet evenings around the fire.

Absolutely Loved this cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to get away for the weekend and this cozy little cabin was the perfect place to sit back and relax! Everything was very clean and accommodating. The cabin is secluded to feel like you are miles and miles away but yet not too far of a drive to the surrounding towns. The views were amazing, nothing was better than waking up with a cup of coffee swinging on the porch swing listening to the wild turkeys. I would highly recommend visiting blowing rock and grandfather mountain while your in the area it was absolutely beautiful! Would definitely love to stay at this cabin again!

Great little cabin off in the woods!

  • 4 of 5

We spent the weekend here for a short ski trip. Cabin was clean, cozy and had great WiFi. Close enough to town but not so close that you were in the hussle. Owner was helpful via email, text and phone with any questions. Would stay here again!!

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin. My husband and I took our two small boys and we had a great time. There did happen to be a "snowstorm" while we were there and they got up to over a foot of snow. We ended up having to park down the mountain but the neighbors there were amazing with helping us get to the cabin. Wally also made sure that the correct people had been notified for scraping the roads. I would recommend if you are going during the winter season to take a four wheel or all wheel drive vehicle. The cabin and the views are beautiful. It is a short drive to anywhere you want to go, it is between Boone and West Jefferson. We love both towns and were excited to be close to both. The loft of the cabin was perfect for our boys, there were two beds and even a bathroom for them. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful log cabin, we absolutely loved it and felt like it was our own!

  • 5 of 5

My boys and I loved our vacation at the cabin, we didn’t do much exploring of the property because it was very cold for us Florida folks. However inside there was a beautiful gas fireplace which we enjoyed immensely! We were there 5 days and we spent a lot of time in the mountains and exploring Boone and walking the ASU area. We went skiing on Christmas Day at Appalachian mountain and had a great time!

I would highly recommend this rental and hope to make it a new tradition! Spring summer and especially Fall would be a beautiful time to visit also!

You couldn’t ask for nicer landlords, I can honestly say I’ve never rented from nicer or more efficient people. He greeted us with a welcoming Phone Call and assured us that at anything we needed anytime day or night to call, even on Christmas Day if necessary!

I would highly recommend this cabin!

Patti and her boys
