**You will need a 4WD/AWD vehicle for winter in case it snows (November - March). Both the subdivision road and the driveway are uphill.**
Perched on a mountainside close to the Watauga/Ashe county border and the Blue Ridge Parkway, you will feel like you are in a tree house, but with all the comforts of home. While the cabin setting will surround you with trees and mountain wildlife, our state-maintained gravel road is very close to Hwy 221 and Hwy 421, allowing you to be in Boone or West Jefferson in about 15-20 minutes!
Enjoy beautiful hardwood floors throughout the upper level, which holds the kitchen, dining room, living room and a half bath. From there, step out onto the large deck that runs the length of the house, where you can cook out on the full-size, propane grill or just sit and soak in the view of one of the ridges that mark the Eastern Continental Divide. It’s a great spot to listen to the creek that literally springs out of the ground just a few hundred feet up the mountain. But fair warning, the birds that visit the feeder may join you and you may even have a few squirrel or chipmunk visitors, too!
Downstairs you can retire to the two cozy bedrooms. The main bedroom has a queen bed with large storage drawers underneath and a separate chest of drawers for your clothes and extra items. The second bedroom has a bunk bed with a full-size mattress on the bottom and a twin-size mattress on top (note: there is a 200lb weight limit for top bunk). The full bath has a tub/shower combo and is convenient to both of the bedrooms. We provide fresh bed linens, pillows, towels, blankets, dishes, pots/pans and lots more to make you visit as comfortable as we can.
The surrounding area offers activities on the New River, hiking along the Blue Ridge Parkway, golf at a fantastic & affordable public course (Mountain Aire) and agri-tourism farms where you can see where baby Christmas trees are grown and where apples, pumpkins, honey and more are farmed by local experts.
Please Note: Our house has two stories. Guests must be able to climb up & down stairs during their stay. If you have young children, you should be vigilant as to where they are both inside and outside the home (we have non-carpeted stairs, slippery rocks, creeks and steep hillsides).
Rental Dates: Please give us at least 24hrs notice if you are requesting a last-minute rental (and sometimes we still won't be able to accommodate your request). Also, we do not book Same Day rentals (where one group checks out and a few hours later a new group arrives). Please check the calendar for open dates.
