About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom cabin with long range mountain view

The Carpathian Cabin will become your favorite relaxation place in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The long range views of the Parkway can be enjoyed from the large deck, as well as from the kitchen, living room and main bedroom.

You will feel like home due to the cozy atmosphere and the fully equipped kitchen and be energized by the abundance of natural light in the living and dining room.

The cabin is in a beautiful mountain setting, away from busy streets and other vacation rentals. The few neighbors are very friendly. This is a perfect place for couples or families with children to take in the outdoors. Come swing on the tree tire swing, relax in the side yard or on the deck, watch birds or go on a hike nearby. Come fall or winter, spring or summer. Each season has its beauty up here and you might just pick a different favorite while here.

If you want to explore the area, Blue Ridge Parkway is about a mile away and Blowing Rock and Boone are about a 10 min drive. They offer restaurants, parks, playgrounds and shopping, to list a few points of interest.

Tweetsie Railroad and Mystery Hill are big attractions for children and less than 10 min drive from the cabin.

Hiking can be done in the area Parks, off of Blue Ridge Pkway, as well as around the cabin.

Grandfather Mountain is about a 30 min drive.

About Patricia Mate

Welcome to our story! We are a family of 5 and live in Charlotte, NC.

We fell in love with the Blue Ridge while vacationing at cabins in West Virginia and North Carolina and travelling the Blue Ridge Parkway. We decided to purchase our own cabin and had to have long range views, so we could enjoy the mountain feel every time. It also had to have surroundings safe for small children playing. We found this beautiful spot that reminds us of the mountains in the country we grew up in, Romania. The roads, the nature, the neighbors, it all feels like home. So we made it our second home! We come here a lot and relax and have fun every time. The fact that we are so close to both Boone and Blowing Rock, civilization and wilderness, was a big plus in our decision making.

Winter is our favorite season up here, as we enjoy sledding, skiing and skating. If it snows in the area, than this place will be the last to melt!

There are blooms around the cabin from spring to fall that delight us every year. We canoe on the New River in the summer and watch the Tweetsie’s fireworks on the 4th of Jul from the hill across the street.

This is really an inspirational place and we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do and decide to come back.

Thank you for reading our story.

Patricia Mate purchased this cabin in 2010

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for blessing us with a wonderful weekend! The cabin was exactly what we needed to find rest and enjoy the beauty of God's creation!

We love birds! So, it was fun watching the birds visit the feeders.

But, nothing was as beautiful as watching the sun rising over the mountain.

Super location, Average VRBO

  • 3 of 5

Hi Patricia,

Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your VRBO. The location was perfect for us as it was near to the many golf courses we wanted to play. The house itself was large enough for the two of us but had some challenges that really need to be addressed. First and foremost, the master bedroom bed MUST be changed as it is so very uncomfortable. A normal mattress and box spring would be advisable so a decent night's rest could take place. In addition, the futon sofa should have been repaired before our arrival. It could not be used to even sit on. We were also challenged with your lack of needed electrical power to run some of the appliances, such as the washer & dryer. We had power outage in the basement.

The interior of the home was clean and that was important to us. Thank you once again for sharing your mountain retreat.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feed-back. We are glad to hear you had a good time at our cabin. Regarding the bed in the master bedroom, it has a good mattress and a foam top, for extra comfort. Unfortunately when it comes to sleep, we are all so very different in what we find comfortable and we are sorry to hear this bed did not work for you. Majority of our guests are happy with their sleep there. One of the 2 sofa beds in the living room has been damaged by guests right before your stay, where the hinges were so bent that it would not stay in the correct position anymore. We have fixed it after you left and apologize we did not get to it before you came. Summer is very busy with guests at the cabin and things do get damaged sometimes. We always address them asap.

Perfect get-away place!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very cozy, comfortable and beautiful, certainly made with love and care! We enjoyed staying there with two kids and grandma.

The view is gorgeous, one can eternally sit there staring at the mountains day and night.. Our girls loved the swings on a huge tree, and set of games and movies in the kids room, and a tennis table downstairs. The street to the house goes right by the cliff, which also provides breathtaking views, and we all enjoyed that a lot.

Overall we've got amazing weekend staying there, and we really felt ourselves in a Carpathian cabin :)

That was a perfect get-away trip for us, and we certainly would love to get back!

Memorial Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We got to the cabin via Blue Ridge Parkway, stopping at several overlooks. Great view! The cabin is close to Boone and Blowing Rock, it is located in a very quiet neighborhood with lots of trees around. The view from the back porch is also great. We went hiking around the area, several state parks are in 45-minute drive. The cabin was clean, kitchen stocked with everything you needed, lots of DVD and games to choose from, cable TV and Wi-Fi. The kids had a lot of fun on the swing 😊 Overall, we had a good weekend!

Nice view

  • 4 of 5

We liked the cabin, it was really cold when we were there so we could not use the 2nd bathroom downstairs because it was not heated down there so we were really cramped in one bathroom, the cabin had a lot of dust and it was not very clean, my son has an allergy and everytime we got to the cabin he was sneezing really bad, the view is beautiful in the morning, the gravel road was very scary to get in and out but we kind of get used to it after the 1st day, it snowed really hard when we were there so the kids had a good time with the sleds, the neighbourhood is very quite and safe, the kitchen is well stocked. The owners were responsive and helpful, we did not have any signal on my phone in the cabin so it was a little scary not to be able to call anyone but we were able to text message.

Great view and awesome room for the kids

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at the cabin. It had a great room for the kids with toys and dvds. We loved the view and being able to watch the sunrise in the morning. We went to the tweensie railroad which was only 11 minutes away and it's definitely a must do!! We stay the week after Christmas and there was still snow on the back porch when we got there! Great place with a great view!
