About Jeffrey And Patricia VanHoose

Family own business since 2000.

Jeffrey And Patricia VanHoose purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Jeffrey And Patricia VanHoose chose Boone

We are from Boone and ended up staying here and raising our family. My husband enjoyed at the time building a few vacation cabins. We have 3 on VRBO. Fox Den Cabin is such a neat cabin. You can enjoying rocking on the front porch in the evenings or getting a cup of coffee to watch the sun come up in the mornings. What a beautiful sunrise. It's is very peaceful and private. You will possible see some wildlife there. The deer's and turkeys enjoying gazing in the field and woods.

What makes this cabin unique

Enjoying the privacy and just minutes to Boone & Blowing Rock. Just minutes away from Appalachian State University. Private fishing pond on the property. It is a catch and release pond. Also enjoying the use of the canoes. Campfire pit at cabin and also at the pond. Kids always enjoying some smores at the end of the day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us share your cabin on the Hill. This was a much needed escape! It was so peaceful. I love the High County of NC and plan to come again. Loved hiking around Blowing Rock area.

Thanks Again!

Nice owners but the cabin was dirty and very dusty. We both had runny noses and sinus headaches from staying there. Old, dirty furniture was very uncomfortable. Several burned out light bulbs so the place was dim. Ants all over the kitchen. Mold growing in the shower. Refrigerator sounded like a jet taking off and the roof leaked a lot. Time for some much needed fixing up. Nice Mountain View out one window.

Great cabin, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this same cabin last year and enjoyed it so much we returned. It is in a great location near Boone and Blowing Rock with easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway as well. The hot tub was ready to go when we arrived, and the cabin was clean and in order. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, utensils, etc for cooking. and there are plenty of linens in the bathrooms. It is also nice having a washer and dryer. We love that the cabin is so close to conveniences yet maintains that feeling of quiet and seclusion. Thanks again!

Perfect Getaway

The views were absolutely beautiful, we even got to watch a few deer enjoying their breakfast one morning. The cabin is very cozy and comfortable and we would definitely stay here again!

Nice cozy cabin for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great place to get away for the weekend. Fox Den sits on top of the mountain, great sunset and sunrise views. Towels and linens were provided among other necessities. Very clean and cozy and the hot tub was very relaxing. Great location, only few minutes away from downtown Boone. The owners live on the property, so if there were any issues, we could just call them. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you for providing such a nice place.

Good property

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is very nice but had a few comments.

It is on a steep hill - if it was snowing you would need 4wd.

The furniture needs a refresh- the bed in the front left bedroom squeaks terribly and the chair in the living room had no cushion.

Hot tub was great but it’s a little noisy when it runs at night.

The outside lights need maintenance- the driveway floodlights didn’t work (or we couldn’t find the switch) and it’s super dark!

The location is great - it’s in a subdivision but you can only see 1 house and it’s very close to Boone.

Great location - private yet convenient to Boone and the Blue Ridge Parkway

  • 5 of 5

We loved spending this past weekend at Fox Den and will definitely stay here on future trips to the area! The house offered the perfect combination of privacy and convenience to the BRP for hiking and biking as well as to downtown Boone and Blowing Rock for meals. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed. Even though we did not cook lunches and dinners at the cabin, it was well equipped with plenty of dishes and cookware if you choose to make your own meals. The hot tub was ready to go when we arrived and everything was in working order. Check in/check out was easy and the owners answered all questions quickly. We will definitely return to Fox Den!
