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.

Appalachian Ski Mountain is about 15 min away and Tubing/Canoeing on New River is a 30 min drive.

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.

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!

Charming and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

This mountain cabin provided the perfect getaway experience for myself, my husband and our two-year-old during App State homecoming weekend. It's far enough out of town that you feel like you're really "in the mountains" but less than 15 minutes to Boone or Blowing Rock. Also loved the convenience to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Highlights were the big windows throughout, the large deck, and the tree swing. Kitchen and bathroom were really nice. The gravel road to the cabin is a little rough so we were glad we brought our SUV. We had a great experience here and would love to stay again.

Owner's Response: We just wanted to let our past and future guests know that the dirt short road to the cabin has been scraped and re-graveled. It looks and feels awesome now!

Nice cabin but my back is still recovering from the bed

  • 3 of 5

I loved the patio and view, but my relaxing weekend turned into a sleepless weekend due to the terrible matress. I have never woken up in such pain before... tossed and turned to get comfortable only to wake up in agony. Ive slept on futons, air mattresses and 15 yr old junkers this yr with no problems, so i was defintely suprised and frustrated. Cabin was clean and cute, close to blowing rock and boone. Just wish i could say i had some R&R :(

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear that. We have had over 100 guests so far and did not have 1 previous complaint about the mattress in the main bedroom. However, we take every note very seriously, so we went ahead, bought and installed a 3" foam topper for the mattress. We hope this will make all the future guests' sleep the most comfortable possible.
