Enjoy the private natural setting among boulders and native rhododendron in this favorite two bedroom two bath log cabin while still convenient to area attractions and amenities. Features hot tub, central AC, outdoor fire pit and wood burning fireplace to accommodate up to four with two queen bedrooms, each with their own private bath.
Welcome to Farallon, one our coziest Valle Crucis log cabin rentals. Surrounded by hardwoods and rhododendron and natural rock outcroppings , this cabin offers the perfect mountain hideaway. To step onto the covered side porch is to already disappear from the hectic world of deadlines and intrusions. The most pressing intrusion here is likely to be a chattering squirrel or the leaves dappling the light upon the pages of the latest best-seller.
To open the door and step inside is to be greeted by nature. The spaciousness of the floor plan is augmented by large windows flanking the magnificent wood-burning fireplace and rising all the way to the cathedral ceiling. With the clean lines of the furniture and the contemporary wrought iron light fixtures suspending from the ceiling offer unobstructed view of the forest outside every window.
The open dining area features seating for six and French doors that open onto the front deck equipped with a gas grill for preparing mountain trout freshly caught in the nearby Watauga River. Pristine modern appliances appoint the fully-equipped centrally located kitchen.
The living area features a comfortable seating area before the fireplace, a flat screen television, and a cabinet of books and games for relaxing after the day's excursions of canoeing and hiking. A telescope waits in the corner for gazing at stars light years away in the crystal clear skies. Hidden behind the kitchen are two bedrooms, each furnished with queen sized beds and offering the rustic comfort of layers of patchwork quilts. Large windows allow plenty of sunlight for enjoying a lazy breakfast in bed.
A large covered deck stretches the entire front of the cabin, overlooking the surrounding rhododendron and large boulders. The deck is furnished with rocking chairs for after dinner snoozing and features a hot tub for soaking away the stiffness of overdoing it on the slopes while the snow falls around you or hiking up nearby Grandfather Mountain. Follow the path outside to your own fire pit for knocking off the chill after a summertime shower, roasting dogs and s'mores, and telling bear tales.
For larger groups, consider renting this cabin with nearby Black Bear Lodge or Van Beek's Peak.
