Property description

Welcome to simplicity. Remember what a trip to the mountains used to feel like? Back then a mountain vacation was the sun coming up and a cup of hot coffee watched from the porch swing. It was nothing to do but whatever you wanted. Well, that kind of family vacation still happens here at Aunt Birdie's, where we're a little retro and a whole lot of fun.
Well-mannered dogs, reasonable children and fun-loving grownups welcome.
When you see the photos, you'll notice there's a basement level. It is not connected to the upstairs level through interior stairs and we do not rent out that bottom level. That's where we have the laundry room and another small bathroom.
We have TV but not cable or satellite. We have a fully equipped kitchen but no dishwasher except your kids or yourself. Ceiling fans and windows keep you cool at 4,100 feet above sea level.
Come see for yourself why this is such a special place.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Though officially owned by an LLC, we are four long-time friends who got together and brought this old house at the top of the ridge back into its glory.

Why the Owner Chose Boone, NC, USA:
Jon and Beth live on this road and also have a vacation rental on the nearby creek. We thought the house, which had fallen into disrepair, was a beautiful setting and worth saving.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Peace and quiet, but quite close to town. I am not sure I need to say any more!
