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.

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).

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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Vilas, NC, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.
