About the property

3 BR, loft, 2.5 baths, sleeps 10, with spectacular views from bedrooms and decks

Ten seconds after coming through the front door of the cabin and looking through the cathedral ceiling to floor window, you will know why we call it Purple Haze. We love Jimmy, but it's not about him. It's the amazing view out across the Appalachian Mountains, well into Virginia, evoking 'purple mountains majesty.' This spacious luxury log cabin home has 3 BR, 2.5 baths, plus loft. Located between Boone and Blowing Rock just 1.7 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Main living area is showcased by a wall of windows and exposed beams accented by a corner stone fireplace with gas logs. Flat screen TV, hardwood floors, comfortable furnishings with plenty of seating. Amenities include AC, cable, broadband internet.. Fully equipped galley kitchen, dining room table seats 8. Easy access to large deck with additional dining furniture, gas grille, and hot tub. Master suite is located on this level with TV, private bath and deck access. Loft has 2 twin beds, a leather sofa, reading nook and great views. Downstairs has a den with leather furnishings, a TV with video, 2 bedrooms with queen beds, a shared bathroom, laundry room, a covered deck with spectacular views.

(Winter visitors: 4 wheel drive or chains are highly recommended)

The convenient location offers something for everyone. Some of the best day hiking in the Blue Ridge mountains are within 15 minutes. Hike to great views or waterfalls with swimming holes. For endurance hikers, the cabin is 1/2 mile off the Mountain to Sea Trail.For cyclists, the Blue Ridge Parkway is 1.7 miles away, but there are also many mountain bike trails. White water rafting is available nearby.

The house is located on a rural, dead end, paved street that has very little traffic and is a great, safe environment for kids and pets. You are in the rural mountains, yet it is just a beautiful 15 minute drive, along the Blue Ridge Parkway to the charming village of Blowing Rock. There you will find fine dining and great shopping. Or you may prefer the lively college town of Boone, also only 15 minutes away. Here you will find nightlife and interesting, unique restaurants and shops. During the winter months, 4 wheel drive or tire chains are recommended.

Appreciated the details

  • 4 of 5

It was a lovely home and the owners paid great attention to comfort. For instance, when we arrived there was even a bucket of de-icer on the front porch should we need it in the cold winter temps. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking. We loved the hot tub and the views off the back decks. The only reason I didn’t give this review a 5 was the beds. Both queen beds could use new mattresses. We didn’t sleep very well. But overall a lovely experience.

A Cozy December Get Away

We loved this cabin! It was very cold so we stayed inside most of the time. We enjoyed the three levels, the amazing view, the quiet, and the jacuzzi. Super comfortable and gorgeous home. Thank you!
