About the property

1Br-1Bath Cabin With Creek And Water Falls

Located near a small creek with over 40 acres of land to explore. Trails will take you to a small private creek with native trout. From the front porch, you can see deer, turkey, and other wildlife. This cabin was relocated in 1957 from the original family home place. Cabin's kitchen will meet the needs of weekend visitors with modern conveniences. The private bedroom loft offers a large window that looks over 5 acres of pasture. The living area includes a TV (for DVD's only) and assortment of DVD's and Games. The main living areas has two sleeper sofas that will sleep four. We intentionally did not put Wi-Fi in the Cabin so you can truly get away. However cell service is strong so you can still receive text and voice messages.

About Ed Miller

In 2010 Becca and I were able to take our two boys, Russell (8yrs) and Joseph(6yrs) and move back 'home' to Boone. We wanted our boys to grow up in a rural area where they could grow and explore. This property is full of history and memories that we wanted to share with our now with out guests.

Ed Miller purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Ed Miller chose Boone

This property was sold in 1957 by Ed's Grandfather to a school teacher in Florida for a price 'no one would take'. 53 yrs later Ed and Becca were able to buy the property back and turn in to weekend/short term rentals. The property is nestled in 200 acres of family farmland. With a creek, waterfalls, and plenty area to just roam, it is a great place to just get away. The original Cabin was made from the same logs that came from the cabin Ed's dad was born in in 1924. It is a cozy place where you can just relax. Just 5 minutes from Boone, you are also close to the many activities the high county has to offer.

What makes this cabin unique

The trails will lead you into the woods where you find a creek that will sooth you body and mind. The creek offers many opportunities for both young and old. With a waterfall, places for children to explore, and space for adults to reflect and relax. From the front porch you can look over the valley of Howard's creek while watching the sun rise. This is a quiet retreat where many folks have come to rest and relax. The Cabin welcomes couples and families who want to just "Un-Plug"

An overall great experience in a rustic cabin.

  • 5 of 5

This was just what we were looking for, a peaceful cabin with an outdoor feel yet close enough to downtown Boone for food and shopping. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch watching the cows in the pasture and a short hike to the nearby waterfall. It's was a wet week so it was nice to have 4wd to make it up the short, gravel hill to the cabin.

Ed Miller and his family went out of there way to make our Dec.23rd-26th surprise stay so special for our kids. The dogs on the property brought much joy to us all. The Nearby waterfall in the snow was romantic for husband and I and was a short walk from the cabin. So absolutely perfect was this cabin and property and easily fit my family of 6. Will definitely be returning again!

Perfect family get away.

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time at the cabin. We were greeted by Oreo she and the kids became instant buddies. We had a wonderful local gentelman deliver us wood for the wood stove and it kept the cabin nice and cozy. We enjoy one day tubing at Sugar Mountain and another day we went and visited Ashe County Cheese (Ed’s suggestion) and watched them make cheese. We also hiked a trail behind the cabin and got to sled in the yard. We were blessed to have a snow covered lawn when we arrived and then it snowed on our second day. We also celebrated my mother in laws 74th Birthday and even she enjoyed sledding down the hill.

Thank you Miller Family for letting us enjoy this amazing piece of history. We look forward to a return trip soon.

Little cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

If you would like to live back in those good old days this cabin will be perfect for you, cozy warm, welcoming cows around you, and you cant for get the woodlands. Walking on the grounds you will find a creek running along the property, it will lead you to a beautiful waterfall as well, just watch you steps down to see it... The dogs are friendly they love to hang around to get petted. Fishing creeks are just up the road from you as well to catch some trout while you are there. We enjoyed staying in this lovely cabin will plan to visit again soon.
