Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom 3 Bath w/Mountain Views, Loft & Gameroom

*** PRISTINE HOME !! ***

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 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.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We had three families visit 5 Boys Retreat and we all loved it. Not having to worry about bedding and towels was one less things to worry about. The amenities provided are also above and beyond other VRBO rentals we have used. I highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a great getaway. It was perfect.

Lovely Views, Plenty of Room....did I say VIEW?

  • 5 of 5

Expansive decks, wonderful view of Howard's Knob and mountains. Bathroom situation that others mentioned (three master bathrooms, basically) didn't end up being a problem for us. Kitchen is very well stocked, including spices. We saw extra linens, towels, toiletries, pillows, as well as extra propane for the grill. Small things, like extra afghans on the sofa and frosty mugs in the freezer, added to the feeling of luxury. Everyone in our family said these were the best mattresses we'd ever slept on in a rental. Overall, this was was a fabulous home and we would love to come back.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a wonderful stay! We are beginning work on adding another bathroom so stay tuned for updates! In addition to the 2 en-suite bathrooms, 1 en-suite (and also accessible to the entire house) we're adding a 4th full bathroom on the lower level. It will open to the living/game room area and be accessible to the entire house. We'll post updates to our 5 Boys Mountain Retreat Facebook page as well as updating our listing as soon as work is complete!

Great the pictures don't do it justice

  • 4 of 5

The property overall was great and had all the amenities you could ask for. We had a great time enjoying so Appstate football game. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because of the common bathroom situation. But this could a easy fix if the owners ever do a renovation even a half bathroom in the downstairs would be perfect. But if we rent again in Boone we will definitely rent this place. All the instructions and stuff they provided made for a easy and enjoyable weekend.!!!!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at 5 Boys! This home is beautifully decorated, large enough for several families but still warm and cozy. The owners have thought of the little extras which made us feel well cared for - beds are made, paper products available, q-tips and make-up wipes in the bathrooms and a cute basket with toiletries in case we forgot ours. The kitchen is huge and better stocked than any rental property we've ever stayed in before. We'll be back!
