About Linda Lohman

We are the Lohmans, Linda and Terry. We live in Cary, NC outside of Raleigh.

Linda is the Property Manager. We also use Serenity Falls and have it set up for our needs as well as our guests.

Linda Lohman purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Linda Lohman chose Blue Ridge Mountains

We originally bought Serenity Falls because we enjoyed coming to the mountains for Christmas Tree Pickin', Fall foliage , Skiing, Hiking. After several years we decide to share Serenity Falls with others. We rented in the area and knew we wanted to be different. That'w why we made Serenity Falls so homey and offer so many consumables. Who needs to pack all those little things?

What makes this cabin unique

PROVIDED:

LINENS ( sheets, full set of towels for EACH bathroom, extra blankets and pillows, dish towels)

INDOOR FIREWOOD

PAPER PRODUCTS- toilet paper, paper towels

COFFEE FILTERS

SALT/PEPPER

DISH SOAP, DISHWASHER SOAP

We graciously supply these items because prior to being owners we were renters. We found the most challenging part of renting was packing what SHOULD have been supplied....linens, toilet paper, dish soap,etc. We were on vacation not moving. :O

Amenities: 10 ACRES of privacy, View, Waterfall, Creek, Private hiking trails, Stone patio with Bonfire pit, Camping chairs, Horseshoes, Hot tub, Covered porch with rocking chairs, Fully stocked kitchen, INTERNET, DVD, VHS, Satellite TV, Video library, Games, books, Extra pillows and blankets, Serene relaxing atmosphere....

Guestbook comments from the owner

Serenity Falls is a beautiful escape! The uncluttered, efficient facility is just what someone needs for a peaceful vacation spot. We so enjoyed it, especially the waterfall, and will look forward to a return visit!

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Nothing but fantastic things to say about Serenity Falls. Everything was in working order and clean. Inside is nice and cozy with plenty of room for the four of us. If you are looking for a peaceful morning cup of coffee, the cabin deck knocks it out of the park. No issues with mosquitoes, and I'm usually a magnet for them. Plenty of downed wood found on the hillside for the fire pit, which we took full advantage of. The hot tub was excellent. We did a lot of activities in the general area - tubing, zip lining, downtown Boone, the cabin was a great central location for everything we did. Can't wait to go back!

Definitely Serenity

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great weekend in the cabin. It is very peaceful and quite. The creek behind the house is beautiful. I had no cell phone service so that was a concern but with the WiFi we were able to talk with our kids.

Owner's Response: So glad "Serenity Falls" lived up to its name. The land line may be old fashioned but it still works!!! Just remember to dial 1- We keep it so our guest can stay in touch with those back home. Of course we pay a premium for upgraded satellite internet that enables WiFi, and allows smartphones to text, send emails. Cell phone receptions remains an issue in rural America. Complain to your carriers who refuse to operate more towers.

Fantastic place.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 came for a get away and had a wonderful time. The house was perfect. Loved the hikes through the trails, the fire pit, the creek running through the back and the location. Check in and out was easy and the owners were very responsive. Perfect trip. We will be back!

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip alone since having our youngest daughter. It was exactly what we needed for a restful and relaxing weekend alone. The view off the back deck is amazing enough to sit all weekend and listen to the waterfall! The pictures can't do it justice. All the small details have not been overlooked at Serenity Falls to make for a great weekend to feel like a home away from home. The hot tub is just what a tired achy body needs to recuperate and rejuvenate from chasing two small children. The side porch comes coffee and favorite book ready with rocking chairs and a fabulous view and sounds of the creek. We enjoyed the cabin, but the fishing creek across the road just as equally. We are looking forward to our next trip up to the cabin for a quick get away.

Great

My granddaughter and I had a great time at the river. It was her first visit to the mountains and she just had a ball. Love the location and privacy. The cabin was just the right size and met all our expectations.

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our mountain getaway. We have previously stayed nearby at Leatherwood Mountain resort but I am leary of long steep driveways. Description of rental is perfect. Clean with plenty of essentials, except I would bring your own paper products, such as napkins/paper towels. Kids loved the upstairs loft and VHS movies and we enjoyed the puzzles as well. Trail behind house was challenging but short and the swing at the end made it worthwhile. (Will want hiking shoes especially if it has been wet). Also, can't fault the owners for this but there appears to be a new house being built directly across the street which added quiet a bit of noise as they were clearing the land for 2 of the 3 days we were there.

Map

Car: necessary

This secluded log cabin offers 10 acres of mountain, a spectacular view, a trickling WATERFALL that flows inches from the back deck, as well as a swift moving CREEK to wade, swim, or fish in.

However, 'secluded mountain cabin' doesn't mean bare necessities. The Serenity Falls vacation rental cabin has all the modern conveniences you've come to expect.

Hiking is just inches away on our PRIVATE TRAILS that traverse the mountain and lead to a swinging vine.

When it's time to relax, nothing beats a dip in the HOT TUB or some marshmallows around the campfire.

Our rental cabin is one of the few that has a rock lined FIRE-PIT that many of our guests have highlighted as a great family experience!

When you're ready to explore, the cabin is just minutes away from the Blue Ridge Parkway, Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk, Wilkesboro and many local North Carolina vacation attractions.

If you're feeling really energetic, horseback riding, fishing, golfing, whitewater rafting, and snow skiing are all close by. And for that back to nature feeling, the North Carolina high country offers unparalleled hiking and biking.

Whether it's a spot along the Blue Ridge Parkway, a trip up Grandfather Mountain, or hiking Linville Falls.

Being located near Boone, NC, this vacation rental cabin features a little of everything for everyone.

We have a guest book filled with TESTIMONIALS from our satisfied guests. Our cabin is warmly decorated, always clean, well maintained, and a lot of thought has been put into making sure it has every thing you need to relax and enjoy your stay.. And it should, it is also our FAMILY RETREAT! You have full access to all the same cabin amenities that we enjoy during our stays.

Seasonal Notes:

The peak FALL FOLIAGE occurs in the Boone / Blowing Rock area in October! But book early as our cabin rental calendar fills up way in advance.

The NC mountain peak CHRISTMAS TREE cutting season begins the 3rd week of November. This is a fabulous time to visit the mountains, spend time with your family, and cut your own tree! A fresh cut tree will easily last through New Years. (This is how we first became hooked on going to the Boone / Appalachian mountains area!)

The NC high country snow SKI/tubing/boarding season is usually mid-November through March on the local ski slopes. And nothing beats coming back to your rental cabin and soaking away the day in the Hot-Tub.

The view from the Hot-tub is spectacular with the cabin spotlights lighting up the water fall and creating an amazing silhouette around the trees that outline the falls.
