Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath, 3 Levels, 2 Expansive Decks, Game Room & Loft, Large Jacuzzi

Welcome to Starry Nights Lodge, a new Boone log cabin, perched high atop a hill with magnificent long-range views, landscaped with stacked-stone terraces, and a circular driveway with plenty of room for parking. Best of all, you are just 30 minutes to the ski resorts and only 10 minutes from historic downtown Boone and Valle Crucis.

*(If your group is larger, consider also renting Blue Moon Lodge, just up the hill. See: vrbo.com/1060962)

This Tahoe style house has lots of room to spread out. There are three levels of indoor living space and two levels of large decks. The main level of the house features an open floor plan with dining and living areas and a fully equipped kitchen. One wall contains plenty of large windows leading out to a wide upper deck and looks upon the rolling hills and mountains beyond. On the deck, you will find an oversized picnic table, custom rockers with lumbar support, and an outdoor grill. Back inside, the first level is assembled in an Arts and Crafts style, with hardwood flooring and natural finished tongue-and-groove paneling in the cathedral ceiling. The living area contains a stone fireplace with remotely controlled gas logs and features Van Earp lamps, leather sofas and armchair. The dining area comfortably seats eight. Beyond the living area is the master bedroom with three windows set into warmly paneled walls, a king bed piled with pillows, 19' flatscreen TV and a master bath.

Meticulously crafted stairs and banisters in naturally finished pine lead from the main floor to the loft above, containing a futon and a 46 inch television, perfect for a movie, curling up with a good book, or practicing yoga.

A game room on the lower level is equipped with a Foosball table, a chess table and 36' flat screen television. Just off the game-room is a bedroom with queen sized bed, a full bath, and an additional bedroom with 1 full bed and one queen bed and private bath. The deck on this level, has a large swing chair and a seven-person hot tub with lifter bar for easy access. Just wait till the stars come out!

Down in the valley, is our new, Stonehenge-inspired natural firepit. So romantic.

Starry Nights Lodge offers something for everyone in the family, with mountain views from every room, game tables and more, all in a lovely setting that is peaceful and still convenient to area attractions and events.

**If your group is larger, consider also renting Blue Moon Lodge, just up the hill (see: vrbo.com/1060962).

About Kathryn

After living abroad, we settled in the temperate region of Charlotte, NC and found ourselves constantly drawn to the beauty of the mountains, just 2 hours away. There were so many activities in every changing season; hiking , biking, skiing & snowboarding, canoeing and kayaking. We couldn't get it all in in a weekend! So we decided to buy a special place with everything we loved. We hope you too will enjoy Starry Nights Lodge.

Kathryn purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Kathryn chose Blue Ridge Mountains

We spent a year looking at houses that were never quite right, we finally found this place and knew our search was over. We were immediately drawn out to the deck overlooking the valley and couldn't leave it. It was fall and the area still smelled of wild flowers and sweet grass. My daughter said, 'Can you just imagine this place on a starry night?' And that's how Starry Nights Lodge was born.

What makes this cabin unique

This house pleases everyone. There is enough room for all to spread out. You won't look out at any neighbors, just deers playing in the valley below, or listen for an an owl calling his mate. In the magical winter, the fireplace is warm and cozy and children can sled right from the front door. If you are lucky enough to be here on a warm spring night, the air is lit with hundreds of fireflies- all seen from the hot tub and decks.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As the weather changed on our trek up to this mountainous Shangri-La, so did our attitudes. Left behind was the hustle and bustle of our lives, replaced by the aura of the ever-changing leaves. The surrounding nature changed our souls as we watched deer graze in the spacious wonder below us. Thank you for sharing your mountain oasis.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight had more then enough room at this spacious cabin. Loved the main floor master bedroom with attached bath. The views are amazing, we loved the light show that the fire flies put on for us each night. If we return to this area we would definitely stay here again. It was a great send off for our Korea bound Army soni-in-law.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Starry Nights is a cozy cabin. My family and I spent three nights and four days there for our yearly vacation. We loved the view of the beautiful mountains from the porch. I especially liked the cool ,crisp nights and the wooden rocking chairs. My son and his wife enjoyed the hot tub and we all enjoyed our family time together. My two grandbabies loved it too. The two year old was not ready to leave. It is definitely a nice place to relax!

Amazing weekend at this wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

Two friends and I decided on a girls trip to the mountains for Memorial Day weekend and were so lucky to snag Starry Nights Lodge after they had a last minute cancellation. Kathy was very responsive and helpful, and our stay was perfect.

Starry Nights is clean, has amazing, unobstructed views and is the perfect place to spend time with friends or family. The kitchen was well stocked and very functional and the propane grill was perfect for making dinner at home, which we did twice. The location feels very secluded but is still convenient to Boone and surrounding areas - plenty of restaurants, shopping, hiking and two wineries within a very short drive. There were only three of us, but we could have easily brought several more without feeling crowded. We loved every minute of our long weekend and will definitely be back!

Beautiful and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Starry Nights was a beautiful place to stay. Beds were comfortable, kitchen well equipped and decks perfect for enjoying the outdoors. Scenery was marvelous and the deer on the hillside an extra bonus. Hot tub was a perfect place to relax after a busy day.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

I hate that I'm just now leaving a review for this place. I stayed here in November with my friends for my bachelorette weekend and this cabin is beautiful and perfect! They were very thoughtful and even left a bottle of wine for us. Thank you so much!!

Enjoy skiing at Sugar & Beech mountains, hiking and picnicking along the Blue Ridge Pkwy, Moses Cone Mansion, & Julian Price Park. Biking year round on the 17-mile Virginia Creeper trail. Fishing, rafting, canoeing & kayaking in the area's many cold water streams. Kids enjoy panning for gold, Tweetsie Railroad, spelunking and zipline adventures nearby. Adults can hunt for original artwork in elegant Blowing Rock and find creative shops and organic restaurants in Boone. Or, do nothing at all, sit back and rock on the deck and breathe in the view. At night- just wait for the stars to come out. Or better yet, enjoy them after the sun sets from the jacuzzi.
