About the property

This rustic retreat, with breath taking views, is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, in Wilkes County, North Carolina on a private mountain. The chalet style cabin is tucked away high up in a gated community,just 20 minutes from Boone, and is the perfect place to relax as well as enjoy local attractions.

The Community features a clubhouse, relaxing waterfall, picnic areas, small stocked pond with bluegill, redear, sunfish, largemouth bass and channel catfish ready for the fisherman's hook (catch and release please) as well as many mountain biking, horse riding and hiking trails.

The cabin features include:

•Bears/Woodlands Themed Decor

•Sleeps 7

◦1 Queen Bed

◦1 Twin/Full Bunk bed

◦1 Queen pullout sofa

•2 full baths, with a large Jacuzzi tub in master bath

•Stone finished, gas log fireplace

•HIGH SPEED WI-FI and GREAT cellphone reception at the cabin for most major cell providers (rare in many areas of the mountains)

•Satellite HD - Flat screen TV in Living room area with DVD player, Master Bedroom Flat screen TV with Satellite TV/ DVD player, Spare bedroom with TV/DVD/ PlayStation 2 (with DVD Movies and games)

•CD/Radio/Clock under mounted in the kitchen

•Washer / Dryer

•Complete kitchen including dishwasher and many small appliances (crockpot, sandwich/waffle makers, coffee pot)

-Propane Gas BBQ Grill

Beds all have comforters/quilts, as well as extra throw blankets for your comfort. NO OTHER BED OR BATH LINENS ARE PROVIDED WITH RENTAL - YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN.

Cleaning Fee of $60.00 per stay- NO DAILY MAID SERVICE

Pet Fee $100.00 (if you bring Fluffy or Fido... THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED ON FURNITURE!!!)

The Community is approximately 12 miles outside of Wilkesboro, and the cabin is 6 miles up the mountain (on a partially paved and partially gravel road). During the warmer months all vehicles have easy access to the cabin, but an All-Wheel Drive / 4WD vehicle is helpful for winter months IF there is HEAVY snow for the safest travel.

Buck Mountain Community has some rules too. Dogs must be on leash when not on the premises and if unleashed at the cabin and outside, must respond to voice/hand recall they need to be leashed (for their safety from wildlife and that of the other residents and pets).

There is a Community Garbage Compactor, within the Buck Mountain Community, where guests are required to dispose of their own household trash.

NO Swimming/boating in the Pond or at Staghorn Falls water pooling area. (please mind other Community Posted signage and rules)

Know that this is a RUSTIC MOUNTAIN RETREAT- with all the beauty of nature that comes with the cabin, there challenges and other gifts from mother nature. Storms can effect satellite TV and unexpected interruption to other utilities (ie. water is from a private well that can loose pressure, or have other issues, from time to time and cause a temporary loss of water service). Also natures little critters that tend to like to visit the cabin too…Lady Bugs usually present (due to Christmas Tree Farms in the area) as well as some other flying insect friends. ( Like most of the area, brown marmorated stink bugs can be a an issue. (As noted on many websites if you Google it for the mountains and other areas of NC. See link We do what we can, but this is part of what comes along with a property in the mountains.

Payment accepted through the online "book it now" link..

Why Tammy chose Blue Ridge Mountains

Amazing views from all areas of the home and great Community amenities for a ' remote getaway' in the mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

The home has a nice rustic cabin not completely 'polished' a exactly what most look for in a mountain retreat.

Excellent for getaway weekend

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here earlier this month for a weekend getaway. We had a wonderful stay in this cozy cabin -- you can tell that the owner, Tammy, has very thoughtfully outfitted this well-maintained cabin with just about everything you'd need for a weekend, and was very clear about what we'd need to bring (only our food and linens). The cabin is nicely secluded in a gated community, and as a result, was very quiet and peaceful. We also enjoyed walking around the community's fishing pond and on the short waterfall trail nearby. Tammy was very responsive and provided very helpful details and directions prior to our arrival. Overall, we had an enjoyable experience -- we'd recommend it!

Wonderful Cabin and Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 really enjoyed our Thanksgiving weekend at Tammy's cabin. The minute we arrived and walked out to the deck my stress level dropped about 100% when I saw the beautiful mountain vista! The Cabin was the perfect size for our family and I was able to prepare our Thanksgiving dinner in the kitchen with the Jennaire stove and have a relaxing holiday. The nights were chilly so we enjoyed the ease of the gas fireplace and we have 2 kids who were happy with all the TV channels on direct TV and the DVD collection at the cabin. Our family enjoyed excursions to Blowing Rock, Boone, and the Moses Cone house on the Blue Ridge Parkway which were all about a 20-30 minute drive from the cabin and easy to get to. I will say that we did feel secluded in the Buck Mountain community but we also felt close to many things so it was a good balance for a cabin getaway. The whole process when booking the cabin was very smooth and Tammy provided a lot of good information before we arrived so we had no problems at all. It really was a great cabin experience and our family will cherish the memories of our Thanksgiving there. Thanks again Tammy!
