About our home:
Our home is decorated with cabin & mountain/woods themed art & several antiques. The large antique dining table has several leaves, allowing it to seat 1-8 comfortably. We have extra folding tables & chairs in the basement. What's not to like with fabulous views & wonderful breezes, room for everyone to enjoy themselves!
We have 4 spacious bedrooms: the 2 upstairs bedrooms each has its own balcony, two double beds & share one bathroom. The Master & basement bedroom each have a queen bed & an ensuite bathroom. All linens & towels are provided for your visit. The master will be made up for you, the remaining sheets will be left out for you to choose the bed/room that suits you!
You will enjoy preparing meals in our well equipped kitchen. Our huge gas grill is on the basement level under the main deck. Everything you need is at hand! For those not helping in meal preparation, there is high speed internet WIFI, DVDs, Pool table, Darts & Foosball. Bring a deck of cards. If you have a laptop with a Netflix account, you'll have no trouble downloading, we have high speed internet. Our home has plenty of places to read or play games. The PC in the master bedroom plays CDs or games and has great speakers!
After a day of hiking, you might want to wash your duds then play a rousing game of Pool, Darts or Foosball. For the family that enjoys various activities, we have 3 DVD players (front upstairs bedroom, living room & basement bedroom).
Later, watch Satellite TV, or a DVD. For that romantic touch, turn on the fireplace with the remote; watch the flames & pulsating embers while enjoying the long range layered mountain views.
In the mountains, cell phone coverage is spotty, especially traveling the Parkway. Keep this in mind while away from the home. At the home, we have a network extender that allows Verizon phones to work. Other cell phones may work at the top of the hill just past our property & some have had 4 bar service on our back deck. We also have free local & long distance (US) calling. Texting will work for any phone anywhere.
This home is great for reading & relaxing. It is so quiet & peaceful. Or just sit & do nothing on one of the 4 swings on the covered, gated, wrap around deck.
Outside the home, you'll find a reflection bench & a swing surrounded by daffodils (in season) that has long range views. There is a fenced dog run that can accommodate 2 horses (that get along well) or your favorite pooches. This secluded home has irises, mountain laurel & rhododendrons. We also have a wonderful firepit on the basement level!
The night time views are spectacular; the stars seem so close you think you can touch them.
The Cabin is situated in the gated Deer Crossing Community, just off of State maintained Sampson Road, near the Watauga & Wilkes county lines.
1) 7 mi Blue Ridge Parkway
2) 9 mi Blowing Rock city limits
3) 12.8 mi Tweetsie Railroad
4) 13.5 mi Boone
5) 13.5 mi App Ski Mtn
6) 13.1 mi Kilwins for ice cream
7) 15.5 mi to great food at Daniel Boone Inn or visit App State
8) 13.5 mi Mystery Hill
9) 12.2 mi Tanger Outlets (shopping)
10) 6.1 mi Leatherwood
11) 24.9 mi Grandfather Mtn
12) 31 mi Sugar Mtn
13) 28 mi Tubing/zipline Hawksnest
14) 39 mi Beech Mtn
2 routes to 321 (Blowing Rock or Boone):
a) Right out of Deer Crossing
b) Sampson to the Parkway (right on parkway)
c) Left on Aho which dead ends on 321 (left to BR, right to Boone)
Notes: State road Sampson had 6 mi gravel, but now 1.75 miles is 2 lane paved & the views are incredible! Trip time for the 6 miles is 18-20 minutes & getting quicker as they complete more road work. Benefits of taking this route include quicker travel time to attractions, outstanding views & wildlife sightings.
2) For those who prefer Minimum gravel:
a) Take Sampson (turn left out of Deer Crossing) to Elk Creek road (right on Elk Creek)
b) Then take Buffalo Cove road to highway 268, then to 321. Benefits include mostly paved roads except for 2.5 miles down Sampson; trip is longer to reach attractions.
Once you have paid the deposit, you will receive directions & info on local amenities/attractions & loads of information about the home.
The property is wooded & nature is a few feet away. The community is great for walking. If you are hiking wooded paths, wear long pants & before coming into the home, brush them off & park muddy boots outside the door. The wet shoe/boot tray is just inside the door.
Our guests do spelunking at Linville Caverns, hike, bird watch & boat at Julian Price Lake just off the Parkway, white water raft at Wahoo, bike on Railroad Grade rd then tube at Todd while others do trout fishing or horseback riding at Leatherwood. Guests say Wilson Creek is good for canoeing & hiking; excellent swimming is at Elk River Falls. There are directions to these locations in the white binder inside the home.
The Blue Ridge Parkway area has many less traveled hiking locations. We have several hiking books (return to the home after use) with directions & route info!
If you want to go to NC gem mining we have directions to many places in the white binder.
Bring your ATV, cycling, canoeing or fishing gear, the pull through drive way accommodates 5 or more cars, or car & trailer (motorcycle, canoe, horse or ATV).
We have multiple bird feeders. When you're out, grab a bag of bird food! If you fill them, they will come! During the hot months, we have sugar for making Hummingbird food. Extra feeders are located under the deck next to stairs to the basement level.
You will love your day trip to laid back Blowing Rock, Kilwins ice cream shop is a must do, as is Tweetsie for the kids (April-Nov). Boone is famous for App state & Mast General Store, plus Daniel Boone Inn, where the food is terrific! If out food shopping, use the Styrofoam coolers we have in the laundry room. The coolers also come in handy on a day trip, to keep sandwiches & drinks cool. If you need to, you can take one of the coolers home with you (those marked Omaha).
Note: you do not need 4WD/AWD to get to the home or into Boone/BR April-November.
Stays of December thru end of March, 4WD or AWD is best in snowy weather. In the winter, be sure you have ample provisions with you on arrival, if heavy snows fall, you might need to wait a day for snow to melt/clear/get plowed. Snow often melts faster than plows travel at this altitude!
Pets: We ask guests with dogs to use our pet sheets to cover furniture & bedding. This helps keep hair & dander from furniture fabric, bedding & throws.
Let this be your home away from home!

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: My husband is an avid cyclist and I love to ride my horse. We love our family and friends and love to entertain them and have fun! This is a vacation home, our main residence is in Pleasant Garden, NC. We were relocated to NC from Illinois, where we both grew up. I'm originally from Sandy Springs GA. We met over a pitcher of beer after a softball game and have been together now for over 27 years. My husband is so much fun to be with and we love it here in NC. My son and his wife live in Oregon, Wisconsin, a very long distance for a mom to endure! We love our visitors and will go to the nth degree to make your stay wonderful!
Why the Owner Chose Ferguson, NC, USA:
We chose this property because it accommodated both our interests! For my husband, the proximity to the Blue Ridge Parkway and all the cycling opportunities it offered, the cooler temps of the mountains and the ability to keep my horse at the property and sometimes trailer the 6.1 miles to Leatherwood for a day of riding. Plus we really love the mountain area. The photo shown here is of a day trip we took to Elk Knob. Elk Knob has a 1.9 mile hiking path to the heavens with heavenly views!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The biggest benefit of this home is that it is secluded, quiet & peaceful, yet close enough to visit all the fun of the Blue Ridge and other tourist destinations! The home has wonderful mountain views, is spacious enough for the whole family so that everyone can do what they please without impacting the others. Proximity to Leatherwood is a real plus! 10$ and a coggins gets you a full day of trail riding! Another sensational feature of the home is the gated wrap around deck. There are 4 swings that allow you to take in the views and enjoy the breezes. A favorite is the upstairs bedrooms with private decking. Grab a chair from the master closet and sit and read on your own private deck. Or, gaze out at the long range views from the upstairs back bedroom. The main floor master has access to the deck and has an ensuite bathroom. The basement bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, and is private. Home includes washer and dryer. The views can be shared from the living room with a french door leading to the deck. With all the windows open, there is rarely a day you need to turn on the AC, but it is at the ready. The home has a wonderful wood stove in the basement and a wall heater, plus an extra refrigerator. The fenced in paddock will accommodate a horse or your favorite pooch! Also, featuring photography and music by Vivid Peace (Margaret Denny and Jim Pearson) See their site for photos.
