Come to Higher Ground, a beautiful and inviting 6 bedroom, 4 bathroom log cabin located near the top of a peaceful mountain. There is the master bedroom on the main floor with a queen. Head upstairs to five more bedrooms with queens in three guest rooms, one with bunk-beds and the fifth with two twins. At 3600+ square feet, Higher Ground is the perfect place to gather your family and friends and is very accommodating for retreats and reunions. The main floor features a large cozy living room with a beautiful floor to ceiling stone hearth fireplace, a large dining room area, fully stocked kitchen, secluded sun room perfect for reading and relaxing, bathroom, laundry room with washer and dryer, and master bedroom and bathroom. Upstairs, there are five more bedrooms and two bathrooms - both with double sinks. Grab a cup of coffee and rock or swing on our front porch or grill out on our back porch. Deer often roam the yard and during the summer, flickers of fireflies are sure to catch your eye. In the fall and winter, bundle up in blankets and make s'mores down by the fire pit or take the sleds for a fun run down the front yard and driveway. Ten minute drive from the legendary Grandfather Mountain and just down the road from the historic community of Valle Crucis, Higher Ground is centrally located, making it easy to visit the area attractions. Boone is home to the best ski resorts in the southeast and all four are located within 30 minutes of our cabin. Higher Ground is your mountain getaway, and the perfect place to call “home” as you experience all the High Country has to offer.

Definitely need four wheel drive in inclement weather.
Amazing Family Getaway
Our family had a great time at this tucked away cabin. We loved the fact that everything was well stocked in the cabin. The surroundings were quiet and peaceful. This cabin is close to a lot of attractions, especially things like hiking and parks. Grandfather Mountain and Linville Caverns are only a short drive away. Higher Ground is a perfect place for a yearly family vacation! There were 13 of us total and we had plenty of room. We are planning on a return family vacation in the future!
Great cabin with plenty of bedrooms and space for our group!!
The number of bedrooms was perfect for our group of 4 families with elementary aged kids. We loved the large open space in the living/kitchen areas!! And the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and more. The extra tv room for the kids to seperate from the adults was great too! We were hoping for snow, but unfortunately didn't see any. As stated, you would definitely need 4wd if it were snowing!! We would definitely stay here again!
Family Christmas Gathering
The cabin was just what we needed. The great room was large enough we had several games and conversation areas. We were close to Boone and surrounding activities. A good time was had by all.
Overall my family had a great time at this cabin. The space was great for us and we even were able to host a dinner party for some friends. Unfortunately our time was interrupted by some live yellow jackets in a couple of upstairs bedrooms, a live snake in an upstairs bathroom and mouse droppings in the main kitchen cabinet. I would consider some form of pest control.
All of our properties are required to be on quarterly pest control including this home. We have contacted AAA Pest Control to take care of these issues as soon as possible.
