  • Nice quiet couple getaway


    Great cabin with all the amenities of home. The area is very quiet and remote. We enjoyed our stay.

    Our family really enjoyed this secluded, tranquil cabin in the woods. We particularly enjoyed the deep front porch, which sheltered us even in the rain to be able to enjoy the beautiful wooded wonderland. The firepit was a huge hit, and we spent most evenings grilling and enjoying the porch and fire pit. The Wifi is outstanding, and our family members were able to stay connected for work and entertainment. Even with no cell signal, we switched our phoned to wifi calling and stayed connected that way. Our vehicles are front-wheel drive small SUVs, and we had no trouble accessing the cabin during our August stay. It's just a short 10 minute drive to New Market Center in Boone, and downtown was only another 5 minutes. The hosts were very welcoming and responsive. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Very rustic, but peaceful


    We enjoyed our stay at this property because we were looking to unwind and bond, but it was quite rustic. The add said the house had AC, but it did not have central air - just window units in the bedroom. Fortunately it was cool and their was no humidity so this sufficed. Also, the wifi and phone service was completely knocked out for 4 out of our 5 days. This was not the home owner's fault though. They immediately called their provider who came out and informed us that some other service provider had been digging in the area and had cut their lines. They worked on it for a day, but the service was never restored. We managed, but had to get creative on how to stay entertained in the evenings. We made smores on the firepit, played games stored there, and rocked on the front porch. Overall, it was a beautiful setting and relaxing.

    We enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was peaceful, quite & secluded but less than 15 minutes to everything. Kitchen was well equipped with everything from pot & pans to silverware. We had 2 vehicles but could have easily parked 2 or 3 more.

  • Sooooo Secluded!


    This was our first visit to NC & this cabin was absolutely perfect! It just screams North Carolina! It is super secluded (which we wanted), plenty of room for the dog to run, cool outdoor fire pit with a hammock (so relaxing), and totally private yet a quick drive to town. We can’t say enough about this cabin! Going up the driveway in the Jeep was all part of the charm! FYI bon’t show up in a BMW. Living in NY, I never saw a hummingbird, here at the cabin we saw countless hummingbirds! Comfy beds, big screen TV, fully equipped kitchen, strong WiFi (hugely important) & the coolest most charming cabin furniture. 1 important thing to know: do not leave the cabin without putting your designation in the GPS. Otherwise you’ll be back to do it using the cabin’s WiFi bc once you leave, phone service is gone. Lastly, I think the best part about this cabin is the owner. The nicest, kindest, most thoughtful human I’ve met in a long time. True southern hospitality. We throughly enjoyed our stay & will absolutely return for a longer stay!
