About The Owner

We co-own our mountain cabin with 2 other couples. We were all college friends and now each have kids and our families love to stay at the cabin whenever we can.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2004

Why The Owner chose Blue Ridge Mountains

The cabin is located near Blowing Rock and Boone, NC and it less than a mile away from an entrance onto the Blue Ridge Parkway. We find something new to do every time we go.

We enjoyed another perfect weekend in the mountains for our 3rd Annual post-holiday/New Year Girl’s Weekend! The house is so warm and cozy and we all slept like logs! The location was perfect for us! We enjoyed a great dinner at The Best Cellar in Blowing Rock and a fun night letting loose at Twigs. And what would a girl’s weekend be without a morning at Westglow Spa! But the most important part of the trip is reconnecting with dear friends and talking until the early hours of the next morning! We know we will be back!

We discovered Blowing Rock for the first time in October of 1994, for our honeymoon. It’s one of our favorite places to re=visit and always will be. This is our first spring, and it’s wonderful, all the fresh air and new life in bloom. It’s the 3rd Annual Blue Ridge Wind Festival. What a treat! The cabins here at the Timber Ridge are the best kept secret, and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at “A Bear’s Den”. We’ll be back!!

My family and I really enjoyed your cabin. It felt like home away from home. My kids were ready to move in. ? It was very quiet and relaxing. Thanks for making it such a joy to stay here. I would recommend your cabin to my friends and family. ? Thanks,

We wanted to thank you for an incredible weekend at your cabin. It was the perfect space to bring family together to celebrate my graduation from ASU! Everyone really enjoyed the rocking chairs and between this cozy place and the fresh mountain air (that I am going to miss) we got the best sleep/relaxation. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

P.S. My family was from Florida and they loved it here.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house expecting to need it for evacuating. Irma turned but we decided to make the best out of it and have a mini vacation.

Everything was wonderful. We plan on staying again in the future.

Great location and easy to get to Blowing Rock or Boone

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the cabin and the beautiful weather with breezes throughout the place. We were so close to Tweetsie we could faintly hear (not loud) the train whistle. Most enjoyable was the easy access to Blue Ridge Pkwy and any hiking or biking trail. I think we were able to visit most of the farmer's markets! as well as the many farm to table restaurants , craft breweries and coffee shops. All within a 10 minute drive.

Extremely close to the things we wanted to do.

  • 5 of 5

Loved it and was everything that we wanted. The parking spot is a little tricky to navigate and we didn't realize that the place didn't have A/C but we had a cold snap come through and didn't need the A/C. Everyone had a great time!

If you are coming to Blowing Rock, I don't think you will regret renting this place.

Perfect for our family of 6. You cannot beat the front porch! We loved every second. Plenty of linens and a fully stocked kitchen.

Great location, needs some tlc

  • 3 of 5

Can't get much more convenient to downtown Blowing Rock, Boone and the BR Parkway. The view is nice too.

It appears that the cleaning crew has been doing the bare minimum for quite a while. Don't look behind or underneath anything.

It is also time to retire the living room couch. Found some interesting stuff when I lost my keys and had to look under the cushions. The mattress in the master bedroom is on its last leg as well.

This place is a decent value for the money but a few small upgrades would go a long way.

The cleaning issues you mention are not acceptable and we have taken immediate action to respond. We personally booked the cabin for three days to inspect these items and did a thorough deep cleaning.

Thank you again for bringing these issues to our attention.
