Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms with large loft / 2 full bathrooms / Gameroom / sleeps up to 8

Just 3 miles outside of Blowing Rock, nestled in a bowl, sits A Cabin in the Woods. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath cedar log cabin with vaulted ceiling & spacious loft has a gameroom with ping pong & foosball, gas log fireplace, jetted bath, & much more. Relax on the covered porch & listen to the creek, while you soak up the solitude on this 22 acre tract of wooded forest, or take a hike on the trails & investigate the mountains & streams in your own private little park. An interesting mix of rustic & modern, you will be sure to enjoy the log cabin feel, while enjoying all the modern conveniences.

You'll be pleasantly surprised at the abundance of activities throughout the year. Located just minutes away, you will find Blowing Rock, which offers some of the finest dining, unique shops, & beautiful parks with tennis courts, playground, and riding stables. Located outside of Blowing Rock on your way to Boone, is the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway and longtime favorite, Tweetsie Railroad.

Surrounding Area: With its many overlooks, picnic areas, and hiking trails, cruising the Blueridge Parkway is a popular way to spend your day. Boone enjoys many year round cultural events sponsored by Appalachian State University. Take State Road 105 out towards Linville to find one of the most unique biospheres in the world, Grandfather Mountain. You can hike, see native animals, and walk across the mile high swinging bridge. Everything from skiing to white water rafting is within close proximity to A Cabin in the Woods.

Local Skiing: A Cabin in the Woods is located within an hour's drive to Beech Mtn., Sugar Mtn, and Appalachian Ski Mtn. Our favorite, Appalachian is only 5.3 miles from the cabin. Very family friendly with great Swiss Ski Instructors.

About Beth Vonnegut

My husband and I lived in the Florida Keys, but had been coming up to the mountains each summer to hike. Each time we came up, it seemed like we stayed longer and longer! We began looking for property, thinking that we would like to have a summer home. After a few years, we found a beautiful 22 acre piece of property just outside of the town of Blowing Rock and built a log cabin. We have since then moved up here to the nearby city of Lenoir. We love the four seasons and all of the different activities that each season offers. Our cabin is nestled in the woods and gives us a feeling of calm serenity.

Beth Vonnegut purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Beth Vonnegut chose Blue Ridge Mountains

We chose to purchase a vacation rental in this location because of the many and varied, wonderful activities that this area has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This has been the best vacation we've ever had! We love the cabin and everything it has to offer. The kids learned so much here and had so much fun doing it, we have memories from here that are priceless! Thank you for sharing your cabin. I wish I could tell you our favorite part, but everyday was as good or better than the day before.

Fall Colors with Lady Bugs

  • 5 of 5

The very secluded cabin was great. Glass window view was awesome. Moon light at night great, sunshine in the morning was perfect. Woke up in the morning with deer down in the hollow by the creek. Heard turkey down calling down by the creek. Lady bugs every where! Great fire pit and downstairs games for the whole crew. Excellent cabin, can't wait to stay again.

A Cabin in the woods is exactly that!

  • 5 of 5

The driveway was a bit difficult to find and first time down & up was a bit intimidating, but each time got better and better. We loved the cabin and it was in a great location for our trip. We would definitely book again if the opportunity arose.

The cabin is pristine & in an idyllic setting but the road to/from the cabin was harrowing.

  • 1 of 5

I want to give a 5 star rating because the cabin is truly gorgeous-great spatial layout/super clean & tastefully decorated with lots of fun amenities in a truly beautiful setting. Unfortunately, I can't give a higher rating, because the property description didn't include references to the driving conditions prior to booking. It is only about a quarter of a mile from the main road to the cabin, but it is an extremely steep descent/ascent on a narrow gravel road with multiple hairpin turns & no guardrail. While the trip down was nerve wracking, the ascent was so treacherous (particularly in the rain) that we made a conscious decision to only leave the cabin 1x daily and to return before dark each evening. In the property description, I believe a 4WD vehicle should be recommended (regardless of season) & drivers unfamiliar with mountain driving, should be cautioned about the "switchbacks" and advised not to arrive after dark on the first day. I hate to leave a poor review, because the cabin really was lovely, but unfortunately the drive to the main road hindered our ability to come and go freely throughout the weekend. If you are comfortable with the drive, you will love your time in this beautiful cabin.

Simply Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cabin for a long weekend and did not have enough time to see and do all that the property has to offer. The cabin is set back in a nice secluded spot and had plenty of room for all the guests. We built a bonfire and sat on the wrap around deck, listening to the water running down below. So peaceful! Beth and Bob made sure we had what we needed and were beyond helpful. This cabin was such a great place to get away and relax. Thank you Beth and Bob! It is a gem.

Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, and will be back! Not a neighbor in sight, but close enough to town, grocery stores and restaurants. Enjoyed the woods and the peaceful sound of the brook below. Plenty of hiking right on the property. Cabin was cozy and comfortable. Very clean.
