Located in the heart of North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains, Amen Corner is a 2,500+ sq ft exceptional three bedroom; two bath log home is the perfect location for a romantic getaway or family vacation.

Kick back and enjoy the cool tranquility of the Blue Ridge Mountains while relaxing by the gas log fireplace in the cozy living area. This comfortable room features soaring ceilings and inviting seating to watch your favorite DVD on TV or simply reflect on the events of the day.

The fully equipped kitchen, with granite counter tops and stainless appliances, is a great place to prepare your favorite meal which you can enjoy in the adjacent dining area, featuring a beautiful oak table that seats up to 10. Or if you prefer, take your meal outside and enjoy the table of 4 on the engaging deck surrounded by nature.

There are two main floor guest rooms. One room is equipped with a queen size bed, dresser and TV/DVD player while the other room has two queen size beds, dresser and its’ own TV/DVD combo. The large full bath is located in between the two bedrooms on this level.

Outside, the peace of the surrounding woods and distant views of mountain peaks can be enjoyed from any of the comfortable chairs on the large covered deck. For some, the views are best enjoyed from the soothing waters of the bubbling Hot Tub looking out over the canopied forest.

Back inside, the upstairs loft serves as a media room and family gathering spot, offering a TV and DVD player all connected through surround sound for your viewing entertainment. There is also a new Wii console so don’t forget to bring your games along with you.

The large upstairs master suite has a beautiful king size bed and full private bath, reading nook, and a TV/DVD player.

For the perfect viewing of that sporting event, favorite TV show, or movie the lower level features a 55” flat screen TV, DVD player with surround sound. Or perhaps enjoy a spirited game of foosball or ping pong.

In addition to being close to all the high country attractions, Amen Corner is part of a community that features a Par 3 Public Golf Course and a wealth of great exploring and picnicking areas. Your memories of Amen Corner will last forever. You won’t want to leave.

About Kathy

After looking for a vacation property for a number of years, we found Amen Corner. We liked everything about it from the first day we visited. It was built by experienced local craftsmen that subscribe to a high level of quality and detail, which is demonstrated throughout. Once we acquired Amen Corner our desire was to share it with friends, family, and guests. If you select Amen Corner for your mountain stay, we are sure you will enjoy it as much as we do. One of our guests coined the phrase 'You won't want to leave' . We think that says it all.

Kathy purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Kathy chose Blue Ridge Mountains

Boone is the perfect location for a vacation or just a weekend getaway. It is unique in that it enjoys activities for every season (Winter/Skiing - Fall/college Football - Spring and summer - local activities. Boone has a friendly small town atmosphere that enjoys great restaurants, site seeing, and many many activities to enjoy.

What makes this cabin unique

Your stay at amen Corner offers the feel of seclusion, yet is just minutes from every amenity you might need or desire. Amen Corner invites you to lounge in the hot tub on the deck and take in the awesome view or just relax and let the day drift by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I had a great experience booking with you and we absolutely loved the cabin! The check in and check out process was simple and easy, and all information and directions we received were very helpful. We really liked that there was a gas grill (no charcoal to purchase) and how well the kitchen was stocked, especially that there were some spices and seasonings for use- I have been to many cabins where you have to buy every little thing and then aren't allowed to leave any leftover and have to throw it away or cart it home. Also, we really enjoyed the games and movies that were available, and the ping pong table in the basement/garage area. Another awesome little thing that makes a big difference is that all of the light switches were labeled and that there was lots of information about the house and area easily found at the cabin.

We were looking for a good cabin that was close to hiking, river tubing, and other things to do and that would be good for couples (more than one bedroom with king/queen beds) and this definitely fit the bill. We will plan on staying in this cabin again if it is available when we return to the Boone area. Thanks for helping us!

Great for our large family

  • 5 of 5

Loved the big, well-equipped kitchen. We used every area--grill, ping-pong, hot tub, wrap-around porch. All electronics and wi-fi worked well, and we appreciated the notebook and labels to let us navigate the house with ease. It's close to the University, Grandfather Mountain, Tweetsie, and Blowing Rock, making it a perfect choice for our trip.

Wonderful, easy to find cabin

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a good cabin that was close to hiking, river tubing, town and other things to do and that would be good for couples (more than one bedroom with king/queen beds) and this definitely fit the bill. There were plenty of games and movies, and a nice book put together of information about the cabin and the area. We will plan on staying in this cabin again if it is available when we return to the Boone area.

We loved the cabin and its amenities, it was beautiful in a beautiful setting. We could not ask for anything better. It was perfect for our break in the mountains. It was great for adults and children with all the games and hot tub for relaxing. We would not hesitate to return or recommend Amen Corner to friends.

We stayed at Amen Corner this past weekend with two other couples and loved it! The house was beautiful and extremely clean. We loved the hot tub on the porch with the fabulous views! We are already talking about making this an annual trip. I would absolutely recommend this house for anyone looking for a mountain getaway.

What a beautiful home! We really enjoyed the cabin and the area surrounding. I felt very pampered and comfortable in every part - from the hot tub on the porch to the ultra comfortable bed in the Master Suite.
