Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

This cottage is on a paved and state maintained level road so a good place if we do get some snow. It is about 8-18 miles from all ski resorts in the area. An authentic mountain cabin, built in 1929, just restored and modernized with a brand new inside, this cabin maintains the character of the 1930's reminiscent of simpler quieter times, only with new plumbing and higher ceilings. It is located only 3 minutes from the Boone courthouse and ASU, yet it sits on a quiet side street where you can get peace and quiet. Some of the residents have lived there since the 1930's. Sit on the deck out back and listen to the babbling brook or play in the big yard.

Both of the bedrooms have ceiling fans and color TV's with cable. The queen bedroom has a euro top mattress from Sealy which is very comforable and the twin beds have new quality mattresses as well. The living room boasts a stone fireplace that covers one wall, it has vaulted ceilings, lots of lights, and it open to the kitchen.

There is easy access with off street parking and no steps. Great for people who might not like steps.

Escape the heat and come to Boone...this cottage stays cool all day long, but there is a window A/C unit for your comfort.

About Andie Byrd

Because I live in Boone and love it! This is the perfect area for a cool summer or winter fun.

What makes this cottage unique

This 1929 cottage still sits on a stacked rock foundation which was the way homes were built in the day. The original builder could not have picked a better location right next to a stream on a quiet side street yet only 1/10 mile from the highway and 3 miles from downtown Boone. There is a huge side yard for sledding, pets, and a stream behind. There is room for an outdoor campfire and roasting weenies and marshmellows or a game of tag, in the winter the slope of the yard makes for great sledding.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had the most wonderful week at your beautiful home. We came from Florida and the cool weather and babbling creek have soothed our spirits and souls. We will always treasure the memories this time has created.



Thank you for providing such a gorgeous setting for our family to grow together.

Check out Bear Creek Traders 5 miles south of Boone on Hwy 105, that is the best location to pick up locally made crafts, homemade soaps and candles, jewelry, and chainsaw carved bears, all affordably priced.

The Howingtons

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cabin. It was perfect for our vacation at Boone. Great location, near restaurants and supermarkets. We really enjoyed sitting on the deck, enjoying the stream and relaxing view. The property was very clean and well kept. I loved all the little details that made it feel like home. The kids played on the yard, walked in the creek, and made smores at night. We are definitely coming back!

Sweet little mountain cottage

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough great things about this cottage! Its just the perfect size in just the perfect location! We went up for the Halloween weekend to enjoy the fall weather but was surprised with snow! The gas logs kept us very cozy all day while we enjoyed our snow day! This place is a true gem & the welcome basket full of local goodies was amazing! I look forward to our next visit!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting our son at ASU so this cottage was the perfect location to the campus and downtown Boone. We loved the running stream in the back of the house. So glad this is a pet friendly property; it made all the difference.

Brookside Cottage a Winner

  • 4 of 5

Cute place that offers very convenient and easy access to Boone and surrounding area.

Was in Boone to attend wife's class reunion. Only spend three nights there but it served our needs very well. Rather close to the road so cars are easily heard during the day, but was not disturbed at night at all. Has a great balcony/porch for enjoying that fresh cup of coffee in the wonderful 60-degree mornings!
