'Leap of Faith' is a beautiful North Carolina log home located in lovely Boomer NC, just outside of North Wilkesboro.
Just 30-45 min. to Boone/Blowing Rock area!! COMPARE our prices and you will be even more amazed!
This wonderful log home is in a private, secluded & gated community with gorgeous panoramic views of the NC mountains. There are numerous hiking trails as well as a community center overlooking a creek with waterfall [check it out, just 1/4 mile away down Sweetwater Rd.]
This lovingly decorated home is your own private retreat with top quality bedding in two large bedrooms including a private loft with views. Gourmet kitchen, cozy living areas, jetted tub, all surrounded by expansive porches and deck with a view to captivate and relax you. You'll never want to leave your rocking chair! Brand new stone gas fireplace.
PLEASE BE AWARE, there is no TV or internet -- by design! Cell reception is fine.
Also, we do not normally recommend our cabin for smaller children under 12, primarily for safety reasons, although we can make exceptions. [Please let us know ages. This is because of the way the cabin is situated on a steep hill and we wouldn't want to endanger the young ones.]
38 miles to Blowing Rock & Boone NC
Wilkesboro NC is approximately 12 miles away.
12 miles to Merlefest - Wilkes Community College
86 miles to Charlotte NC
55 miles to Winston-Salem NC
Near the Blue Ridge Parkway, Boone & Blowing rock (art galleries, restaurants, and ski resorts) or just about any other activity you desire. Great opportunities for day trips nearby, while being able to get away from it all too!
We are a typical 'late middle-age' couple fortunate enough to have made the dream of a home in the mountains a reality. We are both NC natives and live on the outskirts of Charlotte NC and wanted to be able to get away from it all. This home fulfilled that dream and so much more. We'd like to share that dream with others like ourselves. We didn't just buy it -- we BUILT it! We truly treasure our property and know that if you stay here, you will treat it with the same care that we do.[Directions and access codes are sent prior to arrival so you can find us!]
Chuck Andrews purchased this cabin in 2010
We enjoy the Boone / Blowing Rock area but wanted to get away from the city. Wilkesboro provided the perfect setting, just 30-45 min.away yet with a rural feel. If you are looking for that special place to unwind, look no further. We chose NO TV or Internet for just that reason. This is the place to get back into nature and revitalize. Turn off the gadgets and relax!
This is what you love about the mountains -- miles and miles of unobstructed views to bring back those memories of 'going to the mountains' from childhood! We love children -- however, we recommend our cabin only for adults but can make exceptions. Please contact us for details.
Note: Snow is not common in Boomer since we are at a lower elevation than Boone/Blowing Rock, but ONLY if it snows in winter (rare in Boomer) is 4-wheel drive needed.
When the leaves are out, there is still a fantastic view but the feel is akin to being in a treehouse. We love trees too!
Cabin was perfect for our time away , great location,quiet, and comfortable beds. Owner's were very easy to work with. We will return. As for the drive to and from places like Grandfather mountain, and some nice wineries it does take thirty to sixty minutes, but it's a beautiful drive on some beautiful mountain roads.If your looking for a cabin with great views, this is the one.
It's All About the View is a very special cabin in a quiet location. The cabin has everything that you could ever need. I liked that there was no TV or telephone. The view was fantastic, especially in the morning. Having a hot cup of coffee with the sun coming up was wonderful experience. Thanks Chuck for everything. We hope to return next year.
My wife and I were looking for a place to get away and unwind somewhere in the mountains, after finding Leap Of Faith on HomeAway we decided to give it a try. It looked very nice with a beautiful view from the deck in the pictures, but once we arrived it was so much more than either of us expected!! The cabin was very inviting, somehow both elegant and welcoming, very tastefully decorated. The first day was a beautiful sunshiny day that we could just sit on the porch, that wrapped around two sides of the cabin, and enjoy the sunshine and look out over the valley as it spread out in front of you. We woke up early the next morning to enjoy the glorious sunrise as we had our morning coffee on the deck. Then we both settled down in front of the large gas log fireplace to read our books. Before you knew it the sun was setting and we were wondering what had happened to the rest of the day. Needless to say, once we arrived we were not going anywhere else until we had to. If you are looking for someplace to relax and admire the beauty that God has created for us to enjoy, look no farther, this is your place. There were all the modern conveniences of home along with the view. We used this time to celebrate both my wife's birthday and our soon to be 30th wedding anniversary. I hope we will be coming back before our next 30 years!! Thank you Chuck and Bernie for allowing us to stay in you beautiful home.
Peace and quiet are hard to find with our increasing population, however, this cabin rental provides plenty of quiet for the weary workers of the twenty-first century. The peaceful view of the valley, the fresh mountain air escorted in by gentle breezes, the privacy of a gated community, and only one distant neighbor are all wonderful factors for selecting this cabin. The deciding factor for us was the quietness of being "unplugged" from the internet and from satellite tv for a week. Our minds were truly able to get some needed rest in order to be better prepared for the work world upon our return. It was a refreshing change, and we welcome another visit without hesitation.
My fiancé and I were blown away from this VRBO. Collectively, we have stayed in a lot of places, VRBO and AirBnb related, and this is by far the best and most comforting house we have come across yet! It had EVERYTHING you needed - you can tell them have put a lot of work and love into making this cabin the perfect getaway. The drive, the view, the serenity, the amenities - an all around amazing experience. We look forward to returning to this VRBO and it will be the first place we recommend to family and friends!
My husband and I loved every minute of staying at the leap of faith! The property was nice and clean. The owners have thought of everything that will make your stay feel like your home away from home even though there is no television or internet connection. We actually liked that fact because it lead to great conversations and quality time spent with one another. We will definitely be returning!!
Just 30-45 minutes to the Boone and Blowing Rock area, but far enough away to be completely secluded. Nestled in the Brushy Mountains in Boomer, NC (GPS it!). Also close to all the amenities in Wilkesboro.
