Cabin, 2 Bedrooms 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 4

Come relax in this wonderful cabin located in Newland, the heart of the Blue Ridge at 3700-feet altitude. Our Mountain Laurel Hideaway offers seclusion and privacy, yet is just minutes to shopping, sightseeing, and the Mountain Glen Golf Course.

The Hideaway has a ground-level entrance, so guests who are not comfortable on stairs will have no problem. The master bedroom, bath, kitchen, and living areas are all on the main floor. Huge windows bring the outdoors into the living area, and the large deck is just perfect for relaxing or entertaining amid the canopy of rhododendrons.

The interior of the cabin has been totally remodeled and furnished with treasures from our family history and finds from local antique stores. For those chilly nights, there is a gas log heater that will warm your family up in a hurry. We also have a new a/c unit. The kitchen cupboards are stocked and equipped with everything you will need to cook your gourmet meals, just bring the food.

The master suite has king-sized bed and a walk-in closet with washer and dryer. Upstairs, (stairs are a bit steep) there is a large bedroom with two twin beds, a walk-in closet, and a half bath. The sofa and futon in the living room also double as beds and there is a rollaway available too. We like our furry friends, so your small pets are welcomed (with a pet fee) as long as they are well behaved. We ask that you have a pet kennel of some kind to keep your pet in when you are out sightseeing. We also must insist that if you smoke, please do so outside. The entry road to our street is county maintained and has a few pot-holes... However, our street and drive way are in really good condition...while an all wheel drive vehicle is recommended it is not required if the season is not icy.

Come, be our guest in the beautiful Mountain Laurel Hideaway, and enjoy all of nature's magnificent beauty in the North Carolina High Country. Enjoy the area with scenic drives, sightseeing, ziplining, gem mining, caverns, white water rafting on the Toe River, Tubing and our favorite Antiquing. We are in most cases 30 minutes from everything!

Why Tim and Sandi McCormack chose Newland No. 1

Tim's family has had a home in Newland, NC since he was a teenager, so when we considered getting our own cabin there was no other location we would want. We love the fact that Newland is in the middle of every where we like to visit. When we started looking for a cabin, I looked thru a real estate magazine, and fell in love with this cabin just from the picture of the outside. Its so cute and cozy looking. When we saw it in person, it was very 70's dated, but with a bit of paint, new flooring and some updates, it turned into the vision of just where we wanted to spend our free time.

                                                        Awesome place

                                                        Melanie M.

                                                        Loved this little place! It was so convenient to all the big places we wanted to visit, yet it was nestled in the quite so we could relax and enjoy ourselves. The owners were great and helped us in anyway we needed! Definitely recommend it!

                                                        Great Place!

                                                        Kara I.

                                                        Loved this quaint little place! Cute house, great location, just didn't get to stay long enough!

                                                        Great stay!!

                                                        Becky T.

                                                        We had the most wonderful time at this mountain side cabin! It's a very peaceful and secluded property that was warm, inviting, and clean. Boone, NC and Grandfather Mountain are easy to get to from this cabin.

                                                        A hidden jewel. This is not luxury but it is for sure home away from home.

                                                        John C.

                                                        This is called a hide away for a reason. It is like living in a wonderful treehouse. Clean, neat and a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the mountains. The owners are wonderful people to deal with. This cabin has everything you need to enjoy your stay in mountain wilderness. One caution, pay attention to the directions, it is not easy to find. This is where we will go on our next trip to the mountains, we loved it!

                                                        Nice quiet and secluded location

                                                        Coit M.Rock Hill, SC

                                                        Clean and comfortable. Made our stay in the area convenient and pleasant. Owners were helpful and responsive. Planning to come back next year - thank you!

                                                        Perfect, comfy, home away from home with a gorgeous view

                                                        Brandy E.Florida

                                                        This place was simply perfect. It was conveniently located to Banner Elk, Boone, Blowing Rock, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and lots of other wonderful things to do in the mountains. Tim and Sandi are so friendly and gracious, and they helped us out with the one small issue we had (user error...nothing at all wrong with this cottage). The view from the back deck is gorgeous and so relaxing. We loved having our coffee there. The cottage is so inviting and charming. The beds are comfortable, it is fully stocked with anything you could need, and it is the picture of comfortable, relaxing mountain bliss. We loved it and cannot wait to come back!
