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 Andrea Byrd

I am the owner and I personally oversee these properties. I strive to make sure my guests have a worry free vacation.

Why Andrea Byrd chose Blue Ridge Mountains

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.

The Howingtons

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!

Warmth and charm

  • 5 of 5

Our first Parents Weekend at App State with our daughter. The cottage was perfect; warmth, amenities, location all were perfect. We even entertained a few of our daughter's friends and their families- twelve in total fit nicely in the cottage. We will remember this cottage for future trips to the area. Thank you Andrea!

Overall, my friends and I had a great time staying at Andrea's cabin. The cabin is described perfectly and is in a great location close to Boone. I would recommend others staying at this cabin as it is a great value.

October getaway

  • 5 of 5

Cute little cottage. It was very comfortable and close to all the goings on in Boone and Blowing Rock. We were able to take our 2 little dogs with us so that was a real plus.

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.
