Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom 4 Bath w/Mountain Views, Loft & Game Room

*** PRISTINE HOME !! ***

NEW: We've added another FULL bathroom!!

Come enjoy some time away in this luxury home - beautifully constructed with post & beam architecture and wrapped in poplar bark siding.

Walk into the tile foyer, drop your gear and catch your breath as you notice log railings, unique timber architecture, 2-story vaulted tongue in groove wood ceiling, and open living areas. Head right out the back doors onto the secluded top deck to take in the gorgeous, panoramic mountain view.

When you step back into the house, check out our fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops, stainless appliances, and a window to the world. The farm house table seats 10+ and there are 4 rustic bar stools at the counter. Fresh mountain air will invite you outside to eat at the huge picnic table.

In the den, imagine yourself snuggling into the generous sectional couch with a good book, or grabbing a remote and watching something on the included Netflix subscription (Roku included on all TVs!).

Walk behind the 2 story stacked stone fireplace to get to the first master bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, beautiful king sized, white pine bed, and private access to the deck. The master bath has everything you need including a Jacuzzi tub, double sinks, granite counter, tile floors and natural stone tile walk-in shower.

The second bedroom on the main level has a queen sized bed and a private entrance to a full bathroom--finished with granite and a tiled shower/bath combination.

When you look up to the vaulted ceiling, the log railing will invite you to check out the loft playroom. Here the kids will love the TV (Netflix and xBox included) and play space next to the bunk room furnished with 4 twin beds.

When you are ready, head downstairs to find the second master, another bedroom and the game room all with access to the expansive lower deck. This king master has a private sitting area and en-suite bathroom with a brushed stone tile shower and granite counters for the sink and vanity table. The other huge bedroom on this floor has 2 queen sized log beds and a flat screen TV.

The game room is made for hours of fun and includes a full-size air hockey table ready for your tournament! Prefer a sit-down game? How about cards at the poker table? Maybe you brought DVDs, or you'd like to watch a movie on Netflix (don't forget it's included!)?

Make sure to save time for outdoor living. We have over 1,400 square feet of deck space where you will love being outdoors relaxing in the hammock, having a picnic or grilling your dinner. Don't forget to head down into the back yard, where you will find benches and a fire pit - perfect for making s’mores!

Where ever you go in our home you are going to feel welcomed, relaxed and pampered. No need to head to the store the minute you arrive--your beds are made, your towels are ready and we've got paper products and basic supplies there for you.

Note, the walkway from the driveway to the front door has only 3 stairs, so with two of the bedrooms on that main level it is ideal for people with limited mobility.

This is a small neighborhood with a large 2+ acre property which provides full privacy from neighbors without feeling isolated.

Our home is conveniently located off Hwy 105 and 4 miles to Boone, 7 miles to Blowing Rock, 6 miles to Appalachian Ski Mountain, 7 miles to Tweetsie Railroad, 12 miles to Hawksnest and about 15 miles to both Beech and Sugar Mountain with easy highway access to all. While 4WD is always recommended during winter months, it is not required for access to this home.

IMPORTANT NOTES: (in order to maintain the quality of our home)

-- Responsible person must be at least 30 years of age and in attendance during the rental period.

-- Occupancy is limited at all times to 14 people. No parties/gatherings, or additional house guests.

About 5 Boys Mt. Retreat

With 5 boys between 2 families who couldn't resist buying some mountain property? Our 2 families purchased this home in April 2012 and we've really enjoyed making this home a relaxing destination with lots of special touches. We love getting away to 5 Boys Retreat and we are sure you will too!

5 Boys Mt. Retreat purchased this cabin in 2012

Why 5 Boys Mt. Retreat chose Boone

When we drove just a few minutes from downtown Boone, and found this unique post and beam home nestled in the trees, we knew right away this was the place for us! We wanted a place that let us spread out a little, but also gave us a place to gather. We like to cook for our crowd, so we needed a big kitchen. We were looking for nature, so appreciated the mountain view and deck that feels like a tree house. This home had it all. At the same time, we also have fun wandering around Blowing Rock, skiing at Sugar Mountain, or doing the zipline at Hawk's Nest.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5 Boys made our 3 families sooo happy. Your home is perfect for vacation, especially Christmas. The views are spectacular and the house is warm and cozy. We can't thank you enough for sharing your family home with our families.

Great place in the Blue Ridge Mountains!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a weekend trip to this cabin (10 people) and it was wonderful! The house is exactly as it is pictured or even better! The place was clean and has an extremely well equipped kitchen. The owners have taken the time to ensure the guests will have everything needed. We really enjoyed the game room as well as the huge porch.....we didn't go anywhere once we arrived!

I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone.

Fantastic deck

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful and clean home. Fully equipped and comfortable. We were a group of senior citizens and the stairs were a bit much for us. The loft Bedroom was uncomfortably warm even though we tried to get it cooled down. The driveway was steep which surprised us but wasn't a problem.

The home is gorgeous. The porch is so wonderful. All appliances and equipment were in great working order.

Owner's Response: We're happy to hear you found so many positive qualities about our home! We didn't realize you had trouble with the temperature upstairs - if you stay again please let us know and we'll send someone out ASAP to check things out. The home is a 3 story house so I can understand stairs aren't for everyone but I'll add an outdoor picture of our driveway to the site so that people won't be surprised. We haven't received concerns about it before but mountain roads aren't familiar to everyone.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

5boysretreat was an awesome property that was very convenient to Boone. It was very spacious for the three families that we had and no one felt cramped. Actually there was even extra space and everyone had all positive remarks upon leaving. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils and pans for the cooking needs of our group. We loved it! Property owner responded very quickly with all questions. We had an amazing time!

Our famiily's stay for one week at 5 Boys retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very pleasant and we really enjoyed the well equipped kitchen as we cooked all our meals except one. The whole family was pleased with our stay. The new bath off the play room was very helpful as we stayed at this house once before and really needed the extra bath. We did have to fill a propane tank while we were there as we used it most every night. Beds very comfortable and location was perfect. We enjoyed Grandfather Mountain and hiked every day. We we so lucky with the weather as rain was projected for each day and held off until the last day. Would recommend for anyone and even though we did not have any little ones the house had so many things that would have helped with small ones.
