About the Property

2 BDR/2BA with spectacular mountain views plus privacy. COMPARE OUR RATES !!

'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!

Location

12 Miles
Nearest Restaurant
Wilkesboro standard family fare

Car: Recommended

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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: 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!]

Why the Owner Chose Boomer, NC, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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!
