Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom / 3 Bathroom with Hot Tub and View

Hike, play and explore. Then soak, snuggle and relax. It’s so easy to take a break from the everyday in the peaceful quiet of the Blue Ridge Mountains in this tastefully decorated Log Cabin.

Unwind with a wonderful view while rocking on the covered wrap-around deck. Take it all in from the hot tub on the deck, then warm up in front of the cozy wood-burning fireplace in the family room. Or read a book in the upper loft’s overstuffed chair.

At an elevation close to 4000 feet / 1200 meters, the temperature rarely rises above 80F / 25C in the summer, but the cabin does have air conditioning (A/C installed March 2017) in case of a heat wave. Come for Fall colors. Or visit in the winter for snow activities. This cabin is comfortable year-round.

The cabin features a 60” Plasma big screen TV with Blue Ray/DVD player in the basement/rec room. Plus each bedroom has a 40" Flat Panel LED Smart TV, and another one in the family room. We also have three other DVD players setup with some of the TVs.

Free secure internet access is available for your laptops and mobile devices.

The kitchen is stocked with everything you need - either for a large group meal or a romantic dinner for two. Great view right from the dining table while you eat!

Whether you seek a weekend getaway or an extended stay, both tranquility and excitement can be found here.

Nearby Area Attractions: Take a drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway, a ribbon of road through the Appalachian Mountains in North Carolina High Country. The region’s largest town Boone (just six miles away) is home to Appalachian State University and its three-time division I-AA national champion football team. So many opportunities for enjoying the outdoors: hiking, zip line, canoeing, whitewater rafting, skiing, and picnicking in the community! Experience Appalachian heritage and culture with musical offerings, events, and attractions like Horn in the West, Music Fest in Sugar Grove, Tweetsie Railroad, Grandfather Mountain Highland Games, Merle Fest, Concerts on the Lawn, square dances at the Todd Mercantile, and back-porch bluegrass jams at the Original Mast General Store in Valle Crucis.

The cabin has a driveway and small parking area, but we encourage guests to limit number of vehicles to 3 total.

Why Elizabeth C Morrison chose Boone

The world is full of beauty, and the Blue Ridge Mountains are rich in opportunities to experience and explore that beauty. Having lived and vacationed in many locations world-wide, we know that location is key when choosing a place to spend your vacation. We spent nearly a year looking for the perfect cabin in the perfect location, and were thrilled when we finally found this home.

The Crystal Mountain neighborhood is well hidden yet still easy to get to. It's conveniently located 6-7 miles from several attractive towns: Blowing Rock, Boone/ASU, Valle Crucis: home of the Original Mast General Store.

You can also easily reach many other nearby activities, such as:

Boone Golf Course, open to public

Grandfather Mountain and other places to hike

Tweetsie Railroad

Appalachian Ski Mtn

Town of Banner Elk

Moses H. Cone Park

What makes this house unique

Peace and quiet. Beautiful view. Nature and wildlife - birds, deer, turkeys. Plus great features inside in the cabin: pool table, hot tub, 60” Plasma TV to watch your favorite sports team or Blue Ray for movies. Each bedroom has its own 40" Flat Panel LED Smart TV and one more in the family room. We have three other DVD players setup with some of the TVs. Get outside and enjoy, then kick back in the comfort of this cabin. You won't be roughing it here.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was beautiful, clean and had everything we could have possibly needed. We were close to so many fantastic places and had an incredible vacation here. My granddaughter's loved sitting on the porch every morning rocking and watching the "smoke" come and go on the mountains. My boys loved playing pool every night and the dining room table was big enough for all of us to sit for meals together. We would definitely love to come here again. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.



PS Katie the caretaker was awesome making sure we were in okay and did not have any problems.

Tired Mamas weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

This property is the perfect location between Boone and Blowing Rock and is easy to get to. Had a wonderful weekend with 6 other women and we all had plenty of space and were very comfortable.

Great House for the Season!

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly as advertised. We had a great stay with very wintry weather! The slopes at Sugar were perfect! All was great. The only caution I would throw out there is the access to the cabin from the street. We were going to bring my 84 yo mother, but glad she backed out, because I'm not sure how we would have got her to and from the car, as the driveway itself is steep and was covered with snow and ice. I shoveled best I could for my other guests' safety. but if stairs were installed. I think that would help greatly! Just an idea.

Elizabeth was very very easy to work with and very accomodating... Great house on a great location. Thank you! B.Balzli

Wonderful hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was absolutely beautiful. You are immediately greeted by an inviting scent of a warm log cabin, very woodsy, warm lighting and a great view. This was a great place for our small family gathering. All our beds were comfortable, the hot tub outside was the largest of any VRBO we've stayed in the past. The log fireplace was wonderful during the cold evenings. The kitchen was surprisingly well equipped compared to the other VBROs we've stayed in the past. The pool table downstairs was great, we enjoyed our stay. The directions that came with the information package needs a bit of tweaking. This place is indeed a hideaway and was a little hard to find, but once we got there, all was good! We would most definitely stay here again. Our thanks to the wonderful family who maintains this home. This home was a blessing to us.

Awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the cabin and it was just as great as the first time. Everything you need is supplied and it makes you feel right at home. The hot tub was so nice to come back to after a long day of skiing. The fireplace is amazing, the pool table was great. We saw turkeys and deer running around the neighborhood...so cool! Once inside Crystal Mountain, the hill leading up to Indian Trail can be a little tricky during the winter when it snows if you don't have an all wheel drive vehicle. We didn't have all wheel drive cars so a couple days we parked the cars at the bottom of the hill and just walked up...no biggie!...The communication between the owner Elizabeth and us leading up to our trip was great and once we got there Katie, the caretaker kept in touch with us and was so wonderful. I would totally recommend staying here!! It's awesome!!!😃?💖?⛷🏂?

Great property with lots of comfort like home

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in most of week and every one was content doing so. Hot tub, pool table, TVs and our own games was all we needed, however, location is convenient to all things in Boone and surrounding areas.
