About Carole and Forrest Byron, Owners - Alpine Log Cabin

Forrest and I have always been part of the entertainment and vacation industry. Before buying Alpine Log Cabin we owned and operated a Yogi Bear's Camp Resort providing family fun for kids of all ages. Giving you that same type of vacation experience seemed a natural fit. We love our renters and strive to make sure they have the ultimate vacation experience at an affordable price. We are detail oriented which will be obvious when you come to the cabin and see all of the literature, brochures and restaurant menus we have collected to make your stay both inviting and easy.

Carole and Forrest Byron, Owners - Alpine Log Cabin purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Carole and Forrest Byron, Owners - Alpine Log Cabin chose Banner Elk

We came up to the Boone on a vacation and absolutely fell in love with the area. There was so much to do within a 15 mile radius. We bought the cabin so we could share our love of the area with others. We looked at many cabins before buying Alpine Log Cabin. When we first arrived at the property we realized that while close to LOTS of activities, it still provided the peace and serenity that many of our renters are looking for.

What makes this cabin unique

We were wanting to buy a cabin that reminded us of the cabins we had built at Yogi Bear's Camp Resort. We realized that the Cabin and the surrounding area provided a variety of things to see and do. We are close to Linville Caverns, a top North Carolina pick for attractions. Tweetsie Railroad is definitely another attraction that draws people into the area. The cabin was completely modern but still had that rustic "cabiny" vibe. However, if kicking back is what you are looking for, Alpine Log Cabin has that too, You have a fully stocked recreation room, three TV'S, Netflix and amazing views without ever leaving the property. You might even see one of the deer that roam the area!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I stayed here for a quick getaway. It was absolutely wonderful! Very clean and had everything you could need for a trip away from home. The location was great and close to many attractions and restaurants. My family will hopefully be back to enjoy the beautiful area over the summer. Thank you Carole and Forrest for opening your amazing home to us.

Awesome time at the Alpine Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at Alpine Cabin. The owners, Carole and Forrest, have done an outstanding job on making the cabin feel like home. The place was absolutely immaculate. Our youngest son really enjoyed the game room and had a blast playing pool. The view from the back deck is fantastic and provided a great back drop for evening meals. There are plenty of things to do with the family within a short drive. We were able to enjoy hiking at Grandfather Mountain and Linville Falls, white water rafting, trout fishing, and toured Linville Caverns. For those willing to zip line, Hawksnest is a short 5 minute drive. I would highly recommend the Alpine Cabin for those wanting a relaxful and stress free get away. Hope to return shortly.

The cabin had three floors and was very spacious. It had everything needed for a family of 4 & a dog

  • 5 of 5

The cabin's location in the hilltop village of Seven Devils made it a great base for trips to Boone, Blowing Rock, and Grandfather Mountain. We did daily hikes down to Otter Falls which is about a mile away which could be done in an hour. When not out and about, we had plenty to do at the cabin with the game room and games. The gas fireplace was great for chilly early spring evenings too. Thanks to the Byrons for their attention to detail and hospitality!

Peace in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

This was just what we needed to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of life back in FL. The view was awesome. It was not too far out and getting in to town was quick. Hope to come back next year.

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Christmas at the cabin, complete with a snowfall! The amenities at the cabin were abundant. We were not lacking for anything! The spaciousness inside the cabin was perfect for the six adults and the games room provided us with alternate entertainment without having to leave the cabin. When we ventured out it was awesome to be so close to Blowing Rock with its many restaurants and shops. We made many wonderful memories during our time away with our family! Thank you!

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family rented your cabin for a Christmas getaway. We loved everything about it. It's so cozy, and we loved the Christmas decorations - what a thoughtful touch! We really enjoyed the game room. There was so much to do, we didn't need to leave for anything. We hope to be able to return next year.
