Overview

About the property

4 bedroom, 3.5 bath that sleeps 19. Perfect for family get togethers & reunions

When I started looking for a vacation home, I wanted a place that oozed relaxation and that was great for sharing with friends and family. I found it with this beautiful log cabin. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.

The main floor has large, open spaces ideal for gathering for large meals, games, long conversations and drinks in front of a roaring fire. The fully equipped kitchen is open to the main area so no one is left alone during meal prep time. The dining area has a large table that seats 10 plus a breakfast bar that seats another three people. The family room has a stone fireplace and overlooks a deck filled with rocking chairs, perfect for reading and relaxing. The deck overlooks the wooded back yard that ends at a small pond.

The lower level can be a separate living space. With a separate entrance, it is great for those who rise early or come in late. In addition to the bedroom space, there is a den with a kitchenette, including a coffee pot, microwave and a second full size refrigerator.

There is one bedroom and bathroom on each of the three levels plus a bunkroom that sleeps eight on the lower level. The loft also has two single beds in it.

When I said the home has everything you need, I mean it. Wi-Fi. Cable television in three rooms with a great channel lineup (including all the ESPN and children’s channels offered). Crock pot. Gas grill. Board games. Poker chips and poker table.

And did I mention that the home is easy to access? From the on-street parking, there is a level walk across a footbridge to the front door. No stairs! It means if you have a friend or family member with some mobility impairment, it is easy to visit and stay on the main level.

The cabin is centrally located so that it is convenient to essentials like grocery stores (two within 5 minutes) and restaurants as close as 5 minutes away. More importantly, it is a quick drive to all the fun activities the High Country has to offer. Ski Sugar is less than 10 minutes away and has all the winter fun you can handle - skiing, tubing and even ice skating. During warmer months you might want to explore Grandfather Mountain which is only 15 minutes away. It is home to a mile-high swinging bridge and a wildlife center. It is a short 20 minute drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway where there are a number of hiking trails for both novice and experienced hikers alike. Linville Falls is also worth a visit, only 20 minutes away from the cabin.

Of course, there's no need to ever leave the cabin. There are many weekends that I get up and just sit on the porch and enjoy the company of my friends and family.

About Miranda Yeager

I grew up in rural Alabama with a family who valued land and the outdoors. I moved to North Carolina about 20 years ago and fell in love with the mountains. What a beautiful place to relax and unwind. I currently live in Cary, NC (just outside Raleigh) but enjoy my time at the cabin.

Miranda Yeager purchased this house in 2011

Why Miranda Yeager chose Blue Ridge Mountains

I have worked from home for the last 15 years. That has many benefits but it also has some downsides. I find it difficult to separate my office from my house and relax when the work becomes stressful. I bought this cabin as a place to escape that hectic life. I wanted a place that was great to share with friends and had easy access to hiking and the other activities I enjoy in the mountains.

Well equipped and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We brought a large group of people and we were all very comforable. We were able to cook meals and had everything we needed. The beds and living area were large enough to accomodate our group and we all got to sit together and enjoy time with each other. Thank you so much for thinking of all the little things. Great stay!

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this log cabin. It had everything you needed top to bottom. We did a team retreat here and had 15 people staying in the house. The living room was big enough for us to do all our team building in one location. The house has a great location to everything in town but far enough away to make it feel serene. It's a wonderful home and we hope to stay there again with our team. The owner was quick to respond and available by phone. The entire process was seamless. If you are looking for a cabin in the woods for a family gathering or team function, this is the place.

Beautiful location and perfect for large Groups

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED everything about our Sugar Mountain stay! The place was perfect for our fairly large youth group with upstairs room/beds for guys and plenty of beds downstairs for girls. We really enjoyed it and hope to return next year!

Its convenient location makes your vacation stress free. While it is on a quiet street surrounded by mature trees, you’re only five minutes away from the grocery stores, a drug store and restaurants. Being in Sugar Mountain, it is of course easy to access the skiing, tubing and ice skating offered at Ski Sugar. It only takes about 10 minutes to drive into Banner Elk where there is an abundance of local food and frequent events in the park.

Looking for other adventures within a 30 minute drive? How about visiting the mile high swinging bridge and wildlife habitat at Grandfather Mountain? Or hiking at Bass Lake, the Boone Fork or Tanawha Trail, Trout Lake, Linville Falls or Rich Mountain?

Want to just go for a nice picnic? Try Julian Price Park on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Want to try your hand at fly fishing? There are great outfitters in nearby Foscoe to take you on the Watauga River. Looking for a true mountain experience? Don’t miss the original Mast General Store in Valle Crucis (particularly, don’t miss the candy annex down the road).

You’re a bit more adventurous, you say? Don’t forget to try your skills snow tubing at one of three local places. Or connect with a nearby outfitter to go whitewater rafting for the day (more than 30 minutes away). Or take it easy and tube down the river in Todd, NC.

It is an easy drive to Boone or Blowing Rock where you can find great dining, shopping, live music and entertainment for the kids (like Tweetsie Railroad).
