Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom + Farmhouse Sleeps 16-18

A large country home in a perfect central location for everything in Boone that will comfortably accommodate large groups such as family reunions. With over 6000 square feet of living space, as well as an additional 1600 feet of outdoor decks, its easy to enjoy the fresh mountain experience.

Indigenious wildlife is the inspiration for Wolf's Den interior decor. Photography of local scenery and animals enhance the home to feel like it was born from the earth. It brings a feeling of the outside in and creates a cozy mountain feeling. All the furniture is top quality and creates an atmosphere you would expect in an upscale vacation home.

The main living area includes a living room with a fireplace and 47" flat screen TV. This room is open to a fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Beside the kitchen is the dining area that seats sixteen at a large country table which allows everyone to eat together. Outside on the deck there are two tables and 16 chairs. Eat outside and enjoy the beautiful mountain view. A gas grill is provided on this level so you can enjoy your favorite steak and BBQ recipes. Back inside on this floor is a large master bedroom and full bath with a garden tub along with a second bedroom that includes a set of twin bunk beds and a twin bed and a half bath. There is also a fully equipped laundry room.

On the upper floor you will find two 20 x 25 bedrooms with 2 queen sized beds in each. There is a private bathroom for each. In the foyer between these rooms there is a queen pull out sofa along with a hutch containing games and puzzles and a table to play them on.

The lower level of the house is the perfect place for entertainment or sleeping. Use as a bedroom or game room or both. There are two pull out queen beds with a Full Bath. Here you will also find a regulation Brunswick pool table, poker table, wet bar, and a flat screen TV as well as a second fireplace. Sliding doors bring you out to a new deck containing a table and eight chairs. Take the stairs down to a large outdoor hot tub . This level of the house is the perfect place to enjoy football games, movies or just relax by the fireplace with your favorite beverage, or watch TV in bed.

We also offer a 1/2 day rate with an early check in and late check out. Please ask if that is of interest to you. Also, there are an additional two bedrooms and bath available in the OWNERS QUARTERS. There is an extra charge for this suite. The rate is $140 a night with an $85.00 cleaning fee. This area has a private entrance and only rents with the main house. Again, please ask if of interest

The 2.5 acre lot is flat and can easily accommodate multiple cars for parking. An extra benefit is an outdoor firepit for relaxing and toasting marshmallows with the kids.

One of the best features of this home is the location. Boone, Blowing Rock, and Banner Elk are all within 15 minutes. The Watauga River, Blue Ridge Parkway, Grandfather Mountain and Appalachian State Campus are close by. Look through our photo album to see day trips, hiking trails restaurants, and other points of interest. During winter season the ski slopes of Sugar mountain and Ski Beech are nearby.

We require a $800 refundable security deposit. Our rates for Holiday weekends are slightly higher. WE DO HAVE AN AGE LIMIT FOR RENTALS. We

What makes this farmhouse unique

Most of our guests at Brown Bear Retreat are families enjoying each other for a great vacation get to together. Unfortunately we can't accommodate large crowds. Many of our requests for rentals are for more people than we can handle at Brown Bear. We watched this house being built in 2009 and when it came on the market we knew it would be perfect for the families we couldn't accomodate at our personal home. With 6000 - 7000 feet it can stretch to 20 if need be by adding the separate owners quarters.

A GREAT house for a large gathering!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 14 ladies enjoyed a retreat at this lovely home. Owner was great to work with, we had a few minor issues that were quickly resolved. Beds were very comfortable, living areas relaxing. After hiking it was so nice to come back and enjoy the hot tub. All 14 of us could sit around the large dining table and then we had a relaxed time at the fire pit enjoying s'mores and fellowship! We enjoyed our time at Wolf's Den immensely and hope to "retreat" there again! Recommend it highly......

Perfect palace in Boone!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The only hard part was leaving... We were honestly blessed with great weather and didn't get a day to just enjoy the Wolf Den. We pray for bad weather next time so we can appreciate all the wonderful aspects of the house! The Wolf Den had EVERYTHING we needed and then some. The dining room table was perfect for cards for the guys, and the deck was entertaining for the ladies. Thanks so much to the homeowners and we hope to make it back soon!!!

Great home and perfect for our large family.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfectly situated between Boone and Banner Elk for a long weekend of skiing with our family. We had a total of 15 of us and the home was very comfortable for us all. We would certainly rent this home again in the future. Thank you Mary for being so attentive and helpful as we secured the rental.
