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 mountain 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.

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 ( 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.

Absolutely amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best experience I’ve had in the mountains, and an even better experience dealing with Kathryn! She was always a quick with her response and just very kind. I came with a few friends for my birthday, and we all loved this cabin. It was so clean and had just an amazing view! Since it’s a bit higher up a mountain, and with neighbors not so close you can definitely enjoy your privacy. Also With Boone, Blowing Rock, and The grandfather mountain nearby, there was plenty to do. If we weren’t out and about, we were inside playing pool and just relaxing in the hot tub. We had everything we needed from pots, pans, and seasoning. There’s a beautiful table for everyone to sit and enjoy their food with family and friends. And lastly the beds were just so comfortable. Probably the best sleep I’ve had in awhile. We would 100% come back to the Blue Moon Lodge! If we do anytime soon, there’s no doubt we’ll be looking for availability here!

Owner responded quickly to questions and concerns. Everything went smoothly. Great location to both "get away" and to enjoy the perks of Boone, Blowing Rock, etc.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My sons and a friend had a great stay at the Blue Moon Lodge. We enjoyed some local hikes and nearby fly fishing. We found the lodge to be very well-equipped, clean and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the billiard table and expansive deck with its Adirondack chairs and beautiful vista. The kitchen was well-equipped and even had some consumables like paper towels, aluminum foil and plastic wrap to help make our stay hassle free. We would not hesitate to return, this time for a few more days.

Great mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

The house and views from it’s balcony are spectacular. It was very quiet and peaceful. The house was well stocked with everything we needed. The towns of Boone and Blowing Rock are very cute and not far from the home. It was a very nice weekend. Highly recommend this house!

Oh the views!!!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was well maintained and very clean. Check in and out was easy and painless. The road to the unit is crushed gravel, not a paved road. The first time up can be a little intimidating but once you do it a couple of times it is a piece of cake. We have a small mini-van and had no issues with the steep climb or ground clearance.

The views are amazing. The sunrise to the east is breathtaking. Watching the afternoon thunderstorms roll in over the mountains might be the coolest thing I have ever seen.

If we go back to Boone, Blue Moon Lodge will be the first place we check for availability.
