  • Peaceful mountain retreat with everything you need!


    We loved our stay at The Bird Sanctuary over an extended July 4th weekend. It is tucked away in the woods amongst big trees that the sun shines through for a beautiful effect. The cabin is very clean and had everything we needed. The beds are comfortable and the linens are high quality. There were lots of games and puzzles to stay entertained and we were provided with firewood to use in the nice firepit that is set up with comfortable chairs. The location is great to reach the towns of Boone, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk, plus all of the major outdoor attractions - for us, that was hiking trails. The hosts were very responsive and even helped us out with a car problem we had during our stay. We would definitely stay here again!

    The gravel drive has one short section that is quite steep and a few bumpy bits. We had two front-wheel drive cars that easily pulled themselves up.

    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.
