Our vacation cabin is Paradise for fly fishermen, hikers, skiers, rock climbers, mountain bikers, rafters, kayakers, antique seekers, sportsmen and non-sportsmen as well.
Visit our lovely, cozy 2 story 2 bedroom 3 bath cottage nestled in the woods, surrounded by rhododendron and mountain laurel in a lush setting, but in a secure mountain community known as Hound Ears. You are high and dry in this well stocked and comfortable paradise. We have high speed cable modem access and Wi-Fi for your laptop and all your wireless devices should you need to check in with the office, check email or visit websites.
A short distance from your vacation home is the world famous Watauga River where you can fish for Brown, Brook or Rainbow Trout. The area is filled with other rivers and streams to fish from or hike along.
There are outfitters available for fishing, rafting, kayaking, canoeing, caving, hiking, and just about every other interesting sporting pursuit.
The cabin, with a wraparound deck, provides a wonderful wooded view and is within 15 minutes of Blowing Rock, a small “artsy” town filled with great restaurants and shopping. The city of Boone is also about a 15 minute drive, and will allow you to fill your grocery cart with fine foods and fill your cultural heart with good music and plays. For the family or people of other interests, there is hiking galore, skiing and snow-boarding in winter, golf, Family Billiards, Grandfather Mountain, historic general stores, antiquing, kayaking, horse back riding, gem mining for the kids, rock climbing, and world class spas.
After a day out, spend the evening soaking in the hot tub, listen to the sounds of nature on our deck, choose a book from our reading library, watch a movie from our DVD selection on the new flat screen TV... or just CHILL OUT.
The community has recently created 1) a dog park, 2) a site to park your car close by for trout fishing in the local river, and 3) lovely hiking trails on top of the mountain in the community.
Come visit us. You will be glad you did.
