Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)
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 brand new (Apr 2018) super plush mattress which is very comfortable and the twin beds have new quality mattresses as well. There are TVs in the living room and both bedrooms with Cable TV.
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.
I allow small well behaved pets and the pet fee is $25 per pet. Non shedding dogs preferred.

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.

Andi's cottage was so amazing!
We enjoyed being so close to downtown but still feeling like we were in the country. We spent most of our nights outside listening to the creek and most mornings watching the birds. It was an excellent stay and we would definitely go back. Thank you so much Andi for accommodating us and sharing your slice of paradise.
Thank you so much for the fabulous review. Brookside Cottage is my favorite too as it is relaxing and peaceful. Also thanks for leaving everything so tidy.
IT WAS AN ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL STAY. EVERYTHING SO CLEAN AND NEAT AND YOU JUST FEEL LIKE YOU ARE AT HOME THERE. CAN NOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT OUR STAY THERE!
You are an awesome guest Cathy.
Cute and clean!
Cute cottage in a quiet neighborhood. Very well stocked and comfortable. Cozy stone fireplace and relaxing babbling brook out back.
Cute, cozy cabin
Cute cozy cabin, very well kept, clean. This place was great for four people. The babbling brook in the back was peaceful. Very quick drive to App State and downtown Boone. 15 minutes to Blowing Rock. We will definitely be back!
Ideal retreat in the highcountry
The property was very well appointed, cozy, very conveniently located relative to the highcountry's attractions, and well stocked. The owner of the property was also very accommodating. Overall, a wonderful stay.
Thank you for the awesome review!
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.
