Great Mountain Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay in this cabin. The cabin is small, but does not lack any ambiance for mountain living. It is very nicely stocked, and we never had a need for anything that was not provided. Loved the sheets on the master bed! So soft!!! The stairs up to the front door were a chore for us with old knees...but the cabin is worth the work you put in on the stairs. Loved working with this owner. So sweet and always willing to help with questions. Would I use this home again??? YES...with no reservations about my decision. We also loved that we were out from Boone, but only a ten to twelve minute drive into town.

Lovely, cozy cabin! Perfect for our family of 5; we all fell in love with it!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is full of charm, very neat and clean and had all that we needed. We were able to cook meals as cabin had all we needed! Beds were comfy, shower had good pressure, and living space was perfect to lounge in with kids. We had a hard time deciding between staying in Boone, Blowing Rock or Banner Elk and were pleased that we decided on Banner Elk. We loved hiking in Linville Falls and enjoyed rock climbing with Footslogger in Boone. We could have spent a week here and still had stuff to do!

A delightful tree top hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our stay at Two Rock Treehouse. We mainly wanted somewhere to relax for a few days after a hectic week visiting DC and New York, on our family adventure over from the UK. The Treehouse was perfect. We loved the peace and tranquility, combined with the convenience of the location. The facilities at Mill Ridge Community were great for our kids (11y.o. & 16 y.o.) - beautiful tennis courts (racquets provided by the Treehouse), a clean swimming pool, basketball hoop and pretty places to walk. We loved grilling on the deck every evening, and watching a variety of birds visiting the feeders. We didn't go out too much as we were there for a rest from sightseeing, but really enjoyed Grandfather Mountain, Linville Falls and the views from Blue Ridge Parkway. For families wanting to be more active there was so much to do - rafting, kayaking, zip lining and horse riding all near by. But best of all was the feeling that we were special visitors in a much loved family home with all our needs catered for by Alex, a wonderful hostess! I can definitely recommend this cabin as a quaint and charming place to stay, with plenty to do for older children.

Quaint, comfy cabin in a great mountain location.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great, Alex was very pleasant and accommodating and responsive. I would definitely recommend it. We loved the area, it was easy to find and a short drive from every kind of activity. We did a lot of hiking and canoeing on Julian Price Lake. Visited Boone. Saw the Linville falls and caves. Down the road was a little hidden gem called Otter Falls, I'd definitely recommend that.

It was also nice having the Watauga river right there, and community pool available, my son loves to swim.

Unfortunately it rained a lot, but the Olympics were on, so having wifi and satellite TV was awesome. We may have gone a little crazy otherwise.

My only minor complaint is that the one room where my son slept was very musty. He didn't complain but would wake up sneezy and stuffy. I understand it must be really difficult to avoid that in that particular environment, but it was a little overpowering.

Owner's Response: Taylor Family, It was a pleasure to host you and your family, thank you for this great review. We appreciate your feed back, since your visit, we have installed a De Humidifier in the cabin. This will extract the unavoidable humidity in the air from the Summer months. Our guest are our eyes and ears and help us to maintain a comfortable and memorable getaway. We have yet to explore Otter Falls, one of our daughters discovered it by accident, a true unexpected surprise, and only a few minute ride from the cabin in the town of Sevin Devils. Hawks Nest is right in that vicinity for zip ling and snow tubing. We will certainly explore the falls, in the spring for our annual R and R ...Aka in our house as Rest and Repair :) Looking forward to your next visit. Alex

Just what thw doctor ordered!

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin with all the ammenities you can imagine. The location and weather were perfect. Centrally located to all the fun things in the area from rafting to wineries you cant beat the location. I work outside in the hot Florida sun. This place was the perfect relief with nights in the 50s and daytime highs in pleasureable 70s in July. The facility is as advertised and even better. I was sorta worried when I discovered no air conditioner but we never needed it and with the windows open we could enjoy all the sounds of nature. Ms Howard was a fantastic hostess who went the extra mile for us and I would not hesitate to suggest this cabin to any couple or small family to escape the harsh Florida summers and have some fun.

Banner Elk is the ski capital of the south and the city has just celebrated its 100th anniversary. The cottage is centrally located within 8 miles of the 4 ski/tubing resorts, the city of Seven Devils, Linville, Boone, Blowing Rock and the rural town of Valle Crusis. World-class restaurants serving superb mountain cuisine are scattered all over the area. Within a couple of minutes of Downtown Foscoe includes specialty shop's, antique stores , flea markets, country stores, old fashion gas station/grocery store (serving breafast, lunch and a Friday Fish Fry). Trout fishing, swiming holes,white water rafting.

The backroads hold offbeat settlements such as Valle Crucis,( latin for 'Vale of the Cross') off us-194 where the original 1883 Mast General Store well worth a look for its cast-iron, outdoor gear and a 5 cent cup of coffee. This rural community has stayed untouched for two hundred years.....or Maybe just do nothing and sit on our deck and smell the crisp fresh mountain air!

Other Activities: Hiking, kayaking, Whitewater Rafting, lazy river tubing (they even provide a tube for your drinks) Canoeing, Wildlife Viewing, Skiing, Tubing, Snowboarding, Cave Exploring, Waterfall chasin, rock climbing, Kayak Fishing, fly fishing, Trout Fishing,(brook, brown and rainbow trout)Gem Mining, Mountain Biking, Antique Shopping, Scenic Drives.
