Welcome to Blue Moon Lodge*, a Boone area log cabin, perched high atop a hill with beautiful long-range views. Best of all, you are just 10 minutes from historic downtown Boone, Appalachian State University and Valle Crucis. Sugar Mountain and Appalachian Ski Mtn are only 30 minutes away.

*(If your group is larger, consider also renting Starry Nights Lodge just down the hill ! See: vrbo.com/444251)

This Tahoe style house has lots of room to spread out. There are two levels of indoor living space and a large wrap-around deck. The main level of the house features an open floor plan with dining and living areas and a fully equipped kitchen that seats ten. One wall contains large, two-story windows looking out to the valley and the Blue Ridge Mountains beyond. On the deck, you will find log chairs, custom rockers, picnic table and an outdoor grill. Just off the deck, sits our 3-man hot tub to enjoy the stars. And of course, a 20-log firepit awaits to roast marshmallows.

Back inside, the first level is assembled in an Arts and Crafts style, with hardwood flooring and natural finished tongue-and-groove paneling in the cathedral ceiling.

The living area contains a stacked-stone fireplace with gas logs, leather sofas and armchairs, a 37" TV, and an impressive Proline billiard table. Beyond the living area is the master bedroom with with it's own romantic gas fireplace and deck. Two windows set into warmly paneled walls, a king bed piled with pillows, and a master bath with shower and jetted jacuzzi tub.

Upstairs you will find two bedrooms, each with a queen bed. They share a shared Jack-and-Jill bath with shower & tub.

Blue Moon Lodge offers something for everyone in the family, with mountain views, billiard table and more, all in a lovely setting that is peaceful and still convenient to area attractions and events. *This property was formerly known at Mockingbird Mountain.

About Kathryn

About the owner: After living abroad, we settled in the temperate region of Charlotte, NC and found ourselves constantly drawn to the beauty of the mountains, just 2 hours away. There were so many activities in every changing season; hiking , biking, skiing & snowboarding, canoeing and kayaking. We couldn't do it all in a weekend! So we decided to buy a special place with everything we loved. We hope you too will enjoy Blue Moon Lodge.

Kathryn purchased this lodge in 2017

Why Kathryn chose Vilas

Why the Owner Chose Vilas, NC, USA:

We spent a year looking at houses that were never quite right, we finally found this place with it's lovely views, near to our 1st rental, Starry Nights Lodge (vrbo.com/444251) and knew it would be the perfect compliment.

What makes this lodge unique

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:

The calm beauty of the area, lovely blue-green mountains seen from our decks as well as our large, open great-room, make this cabin truly special. The 2nd fireplace in the master bedroom and jacuzzi tub lend a romantic feel. In the magical winter, the fireplace is warm and cozy and children can sled right from the front door. If you are lucky enough to be here on a warm spring night, the air is lit with hundreds of fireflies- all seen from the hot tub and decks.

Top of the Hill on a Blue Moon!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to actually SEE a BLUE MOON this week while staying at Blue Moon Lodge. It was almost 50 degrees one day, and then snowed the next. Our kids grabbed the sleds from the closet and enjoyed sledding in the front yard! We were close enough to Boone to try a few new restaurants, but enjoyed spending time together relaxing, playing pool, and taking in the views from the living room. Everything was clean and cozy... It was truly a memorable experience!! We will be back when it's warmer for sure!

Gorgeous View

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do it justice, this place is beautiful. It was the first family vacation we had with all of our kids since they have grown into adults. The cabin was spacious and relaxing. It was very clean and had plenty of suggestions on things to do in the area. My family and I would definitely come back to this cabin!

Blue Moon Lodge is Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (three kids under age 11) really enjoyed our stay at the Blue Moon Lodge. The location is great, the lodge is really cozy and had everything we wanted (fire pit, hot tub, great views from the deck, fireplaces). The owners are easy to work with and were very welcoming. I would highly recommend this to those looking to escape the daily grind and take in some fresh mountain air for a few days.

Amazing house, views and host.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a family vacation and it was perfect. We loved the hot tub, pool table, large dinning table and most importantly the views. The host is super responsive with any questions you may have! Highly recommend!!
