Overview

About the property

Main House (6 Bedrooms 4 Bath Sleeps 16) + Guest Cabin (1 Bed 1 Bath Sleeps 2)

The Great Escape is a spectacular, newly renovated mountain property that was built for privacy, relaxation and the enjoyment of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The spacious three level cabin with 6 bedrooms and two master bedrooms is located at 3,900 feet at the center/top of a private mountain spanning 106 acres which boasts spectacular westward views of meadows, mountains, and valleys. There is a guest cabin 100 yards from the main house that can be rented for $85-$100 per night. The guest cabin includes the 7th bedroom and 5th bathroom

30 minutes north of Boone. Last half mile uphill on a private gravel driveway. Four wheel drive required in winter. We have had guests bring trailers with bikes/motorcycles up the driveway without any issues, however less experienced motor cycle riders might not be comfortable with the gravel/pitch of drive.

Key Amenities:

Main House: Six bedrooms/four baths in main house. This includes two master bedrooms. The primary master has a fireplace and a private deck with view.

There are two upstairs bedrooms with queens that share a bathroom.

In addition there are two "kids" rooms on the lower level that share a bathroom. These bedrooms have two bunk beds in each, however there is a full size bottom bunk in each room if you need more room for adults.

Two large TV areas with L-shaped couches.

Large dining room table seats 14.

Guest Cabin: 1 bedroom, w bath, kitchenette and sitting room (rents for an additional $85-$100 per night). The guest cabin is approximately 100 yards from the main house. Great for grandparents, adult children who appreciate a little quiet. We never rent the guest separately, so you will have complete privacy if you don't end up renting the guest cabin also.

About Gordie

We're a family of six with four kids who love the Great Escape - ages 10, 7, 4 and 1. We've always enjoyed the outdoors and the mountains. We rented the property in early 2014 and after a great weekend, decided to try to purchase it.

We have renovated the main house and are adding three bedrooms and substantial living space in the spring of 2017. the renovation will be completed this May. We would be happy to provide more details over the phone regarding the amenities we are adding.

As former military members, my wife and i are happy to offer an 5% discount to Active Duty Military personnel. We also offer returning guests an 5% discount off of list price.

Gordie purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Gordie chose North Carolina

Spectacular views and chance to escape the city. It's very private and quiet with no other houses in sight. We wanted to have a place where our tfour children could tramp around and explore while we could relax with extraordinary views.

What makes this cabin unique

Very, very quiet, and very very private. Our recent upgrades have transformed a great piece of mountain property into a premium mountain escape.

Plenty of room for several families. Two master bedrooms and four additional guest rooms. Huge dining room table that seats 14. Plenty of seating areas on first two floors.

Beautiful property and home. Completely alone in the mountains with no traffic or man made noise.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 17 had a wonderful time. The kids had their own space and bathroom downstairs with a tv and couch. The view was amazing from almost every room in the house. There was plenty of seating at dinner time for the whole family and the house has everything you need for cooking. The Bluetooth radio system was a great extra that you can play your own music straight from your phone in almost every room in the house.

The only down side was it was quite a drive into town to get groceries and supplies about 30 minutes, but the house and the view is definitely worth it. We have made memories that will last a lifetime with the time spent at The Great Escape.

Thank you Gordie for sharing your home.

Fantastic Location and Property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a total of 14 people in our group and truly enjoyed our stay from July 26th to Aug 5th, 2017. The pictures on the booking page do not do justice to the amount of space the house offers and the amazing views. The owner , Gordie was highly responsive to any issues and or questions we had. We never felt crowded and the 2 bunk rooms in the basement were perfect for the 6 kids. The newly renovated master suite was amazing as well. I would highly recommend this property to anyone considering a stay in the Boone. NC area. A+ RENTAL

Great private location!

  • 5 of 5

The home was outstanding. The only thing missing was the instructions for the heaters but we figured it out. Would definitely stay there again. Privacy, great views, and always prompt responses from the owner. 5 Stars!

Amazing Family Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved spending a long weekend at this mountain home with our family and friends. Our children were so sad to leave. Gordie was very helpful through the entire process of renting, and any questions my husband had were readily answered. It was everything that we imagined it would be and more. We can't wait to come back again!! Thanks again for allowing us to rent your beautiful home!
