About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Cozy log cabin on two acres of wooded privacy in Valle Crucis NC minutes from Boone NC, ASU and the Watauga River. Updated kitchen, wood-burning fireplace, video games, fire pit, hot tub and large deck create the perfect retreat. This two bedroom, loft and two bath sleeps up to six with two queens and and an additional queen in the open loft area. Newly added, a air hockey game.

This cozy two bedroom plus loft log cabin is charming and private with all extras including hot tub, wood-burning fireplace and wrap-around porch.

This popular log cabin is an absolute charmer - just what you dream about when you want to experience the mountain life. The hand-hewn authentic logs, the hardwood heart of pine floors, the 30 ft. stacked stone wood-burning fireplace, exposed beams and many other extras are perfect for offering the mountain atmosphere. Each article in this cabin was chosen with care.

All of the furniture is unique and the best quality. The house is furnished with many mountain crafts, antiques, original paintings and eclectic knick knacks. On your visit you will spend a great deal of time just walking around looking at all the details. The two bedrooms each have a comfortable queen size bed and there is an additional day bed on the main level in case you have a little extra company or child. The two bathrooms are also charming with log mirrors and look out onto the mountain greenery with one window facing a bed of wild ferns. The living room has leather sofas and hand-made tables, custom drapes, and hardwood floors. The dining room seats six with a deer antler chandelier overhanging the table.

The outside of the house is just as charming as the inside with a wrap-around porch with swings, and rockers, stick furniture and best of all the hot tub. The privacy of this location allows you to roam freely around the property and enjoy its beauty. This house is in the heart of historic Valle Crucis and only two miles from the historic Mast General Store. It is also centrally located to all tourist attractions and is within ten minutes of ski slopes, snow tubing, shopping, river access and Appalachian State University.

This Valle Crucis, NC Log Cabin rental is another of our most popular vacation homes.

Why Blue Ridge Vacation Cabins chose Banner Elk

We chose the cabin at Valle Crucis for several reasons. We think it has one of the very best locations in the Boone, Blowing Rock and Beach Mountain areas. The cabin offers the atmosphere of being private and secluded but with the fantastic convenience of actually being very close to the main highway. In less than a minute's drive, you have highway access to Boone, Sugar & Beech Mountains. Mast General Store is just 6-8 minutes down the road and the Blue Ridge Parkway also is very close. You can also get over to Grandfather Mountain in about 25-30 minutes as well. Given the new four lane highway 421 from Winston-Salem, the drive up to Valle Crucis is so easy for us and only 1.5 hours. In addition, the Valle Crucis cabin has a real wood burning rock fireplace. You can't beat the ambiance and experience of a real fire. Most cabins these days have gas log fireplaces.

What makes this cabin unique

We like to visit the mountains of NC a few times a year and the cabin experience is just the right 'get away' for us since we have lived in so many large cities. We like the clear air & the cool breezes are really refreshing in the summer. During the winter, our family has a very old tradition of skiing mainly in the Rockies but we started out at Appalachian Ski Mountain and Sugar & Beech Mountains in NC. All of those ski areas are only about 15 to 25 minutes from our Valle Crucis cabin and with the great artificial snow making technology in NC, we don't have to go all the way to the Rockies to continue our old Skiing tradition. Coming to the mountains really helps us to unwind.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed having our Thanksgiving here. We enjoyed the beautiful view and the time we needed to just relax. We will be back. Thank you.

Can't beat the location

  • 5 of 5

Valle Crucis is an excellent location for reaching Boone, Banner Elk, and even Blowing Rock (using back roads) without a long drive. This is a comfortable, well-kept cabin with a well-stocked kitchen, and lots of decking. Don't expect mountain views because it's nestled in a rhododendron thicket, but it is private from neighbors. You will hear some road noise from neighbors, though.

Furniture and beds are comfortable. Even though the property is dog friendly, you wouldn't know it! Apparently, the requirement of keeping dogs off the furniture and beds works well. Our senior Boston Terrier had a great time.

We had our own cabin in Watauga County years ago, and this house makes us miss being property owners. We plan on returning regularly!

  • 4 of 5

I would recommend a deep cleaning of the cabin inside and in the porches.

Check all the bulb lights.

Order than that, everything was perfect

We would love to come back!!! 😊

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

I loved the property but will never book through HomeAway again! A 7% booking fee for the renter? Really? Pure greed. I'll book directly through the property manager , thank you.
