About the property

2 bedroom Cabin with fireplace and gorgeous views!

Breathe ... It's time to take that long awaited vacation in the North Carolina mountains. Mountain Song Cabin is the perfect retreat from the busy world. It is located in a quiet, private neighborhood just 8 minutes from downtown Boone, NC. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy getting back to this peaceful retreat after a long day on the trail.

Grab a glass of your favorite beverage and sit on the porch and watch the breathtaking sunsets and the indigenous wildlife feeding on the apple, pear, and cherry trees or even the wild blackberry bushes.

Inside you have all of the comforts of home. A well equipped kitchen, a cozy living area to enjoy the fireplace, a nicely remodeled bathroom and comfortable beds with heated mattress pads for those chilly nights.

Unplug and enjoy the fresh mountain air by the stream fed ponds. Have a fire; roast some marshmallows and enjoy s'mores at the large fire-pit! Enjoy your downtime listening to the spring peepers, crickets and chirping frogs. Chase lightning bugs like you did when you were a kid. Appreciate nature right here in your own backyard! Be on the look out for deer, groundhogs, wild turkey and foxes and there is always an orchestra of songbirds close by.

For your 'plugged in' entertainment and connectivity needs, there is a Bose iPod docking station, cable TV, a video library and of course wireless internet service.

Mountain Song Cabin is your peaceful retreat in the Appalachian Mountains but don't forget to get out and enjoy the activities in the area. There is a wonderful farmers' market every Saturday morning from May to October at the Horn in the West parking lot. All of the wonderful fresh foods of the area are recommended. There are artists that create amazing works of art. There is usually live music and even fresh flowers for your table. Check out the 'Area Attractions' page for the links to many of the area's activities.

Thank you for your interest in Mountain Song Cabin. We look forward to seeing you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved staying in this log cabin. It was just what we were looking for. Katy & Donna were very attentive - they email back immediately if you are having any issues - which, judging by our stay, you most likely won't have. I only emailed them because I couldn't locate the thermostat. It was so modern I didn't recognize it as the thermostat. But I found it in 5 or ten minutes and they had already emailed me back to tell me where it was and how it worked. It heated the place up very quickly. Almost too quickly. We didn't have time to take our jackets off. The place itself has everything you need to entertain yourself. I could've just stayed there the whole time & not ventured out but we did venture out to Blowing Rock, Boone & Gtrandfather Mtn which were all very close by. We drove the Parkway from Grandfather to BR one afternoon and ate at the Blowing Rock Ale house and it was a day well spent to say the least. They have a lot of information on places to hike, and things to see and do to get you started. From there you can go online or just ask people around town and you're sure to find what you're looking for in terms of NC mountain adventure. They even had a couple stamped postcards that you were welcome to use to tell your fiends about the beautiful sunsets you'll see from the large swing on the huge porch. Theres even a guitar you can play while you sit around the fire pit under the brightest stars I've seen in long time.

Best Cabin in NC Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin and the views were the best we have seen in many years in the NC mountains. Donna was great to work with and we have made this our #1 Boone area rental. We just hope it's always available !!

Sights and Sounds!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem Mountain Song is. The (incredibly clean) back porch with the long range view is amazing. Not only were the views quite gorgeous, the sounds that surround the cabin make you realize how it got its name. All throughout the day we were saranaded with birds and frogs. We ate al fresco, had coffee on the porch swing, and counted a dozen different bird species from just the ones we were able to see.

Getting to the house was only tricky the first time when we missed the road that looks more like a driveway in the bend of a curve. The road surface is paved all the way up to the house and while somewhat narrow, we actually never met another car coming or going. Traveling into Boone was super easy and while we love Boone with all our hearts we really couldn't wait to get back to the cabin to watch the sky change during sunset.

The house is perfect for a couple or small family or even two couples. The kitchen is cozy and adequately stocked with cookware, utensils, spices, even a sharp knife! The bathroom has extra towels and a hair dryer too. The shower is made more for short people than tall, but my 6' husband was still able shower just fine. The beds and linens were comfortable.

The owners of Mountain Song were easy to work with and quick with communication for any questions I had. It was a pleasure to rent from them and stay in their sweet cabin and we look forward to another stay next chance we get to get away. Thank you both!

Our 2nd stay here

  • 5 of 5

We love Mountain Song for the view, the hills to climb (no extra gym needed!) Plenty of stars, gorgeous sunrises, and the best thing is your 10 minutes from Boone. Plenty of great food, and things to do. We'll be back again.

Beautiful, quiet little spot in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the property over New Year's weekend. The cabin is very cute and cozy - good size kitchen and living room combo, with two bedrooms in the back. I was very happy with how clean the cabin was, and there were fresh flowers on the kitchen table (thank you!!!)! The kitchen is well equipped; so well that we had reservations in Blowing Rock for dinner on New Year's Eve, but we decided to stay in a cook ourselves. There is also a nice wrap around porch (it was a little cold to enjoy it as much as I would've liked), and the views were just beautiful. Thank you for a great stay - I hope to be back soon!

Excellent! Will Be Back!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect mountain cabin getaway for small groups/families and couples. The views from the porch are amazing. The beds are very comfortable. Cabin was very clean upon our arrival. Owners are very responsive and contacted us when we arrived to make sure we were pleased. Only a 5 minute drive to downtown Boone. We will be back!!

Exactly What We Needed

  • 5 of 5

We struggled to make this trip. Serious family health issues caused one rescheduling, and more recent developments just about kept us at home. That would have been a big mistake.

Upon arriving at the house, I realized that I had failed to make a note of the door lock combination. We don't have smart phones, so there we stood. I managed to convince a lady at VRBO of who I was and she gave me Donna's phone number. Donna was immediately available and took the time to coach me on my maiden voyage with a keyless entry system. Within minutes I was on the porch enjoying the amazing view with my first bottle of wine while my wife unloaded the car (seriously!).

The house was very comfortable and well equipped. Everything was clean and well maintained. We were impressed with the close proximity of Boone and Blowing Rock to the property, even though the views and solitude surrounding the house gave the impression of a much more remote location. There are a few neighboring houses around, but I never saw or heard a single person over the course of four days.

We hiked on Grandfather Mountain, spent an afternoon in Blowing Rock, and ate out a couple of times. Mostly, we sat on the porch and let our problems drift away. Our beautiful Golden Retriever, Jake, went everywhere with us and made many new friends.

I would highly recommend this rental to those looking for solitude, close proximity to a town, and amazing high elevation views. While planning and then rescheduling our trip, I had many occasions to communicate with Donna by email. She always got back to me in minutes. Customer service was outstanding! No complaints at all.
