My husband and I spent a spectacular weekend with some friends at Boyd Mtn. Log Cabins. The website doesn't do it justice..the cabins are much cuter and cozier than you can imagine! When you turn onto the long winding drive you are stepping back in time when things were simpler and to be savored,,,not rushed. The backdrop of all the frazier firs dotting the gentle hills in rows like little tin soldiers marching up the rolling hillsides and the old silo in the foreground sets the tone for an enchanting stay.
The cabin we stayed in was Clinch Cabin and it is nestled among the firs and has the best unobstructed view of the fields of trees above and below the cabin and the site of the smoky mountains in the distance were facinating to watch from sun up to sundown as they changed from shades of dusky grey to smokey blue.We sat on the spacious front porch at dusk enjoying the sunset and were pleasantly surprised when a flock of honking geese in formation headed for the lake to bed down for the night...nice touch to start off a perfect evening sitting around the comforting warmth of a crackling bonfire chatting with our friends and listening to the crickets serenading us in the cool night air.
We reluctantly decided to go inside after we were all yawning and starting to nod off. Our cabin had four bedrooms and three baths. The master on main and one nice full bath with a built in stack washer and dryer and three bedrooms upstairs with one full size bathroom with tub/shower and the other bath had a shower only and was quite cozy but adequate. All were very clean and had plenty of towels, etc.
I can't speak for the other roomates but our room was great. We had two double beds and they were comfy, cozy and clean. Slept like a baby under crisp sheets, light blanket and coverlet under a soft quilt. After a restful night we were ready to greet the day! Even Dixie, the Jack Russell, came to say hello throughout the weekend!
Inside the cabin were two comfy leather sofas in the sitting area, a wood burning fireplace and a very nicely equipped kitchen with a rustic farm table and the cutest pie safe filled with games for our amusement. Although the living area was small it was adequate and in the full size kitchen we had a full size coffee pot and plenty of filters, sugar and a few basic cooking utensils. They had pots and pans, pyrex baking dishes large and small and the cutiest dishes with a country floral flair. Plenty of silverware and glasses, wine glasses and coffee mugs were available too. We didn't do much cooking but you did have plenty of pots and pans if needed.
I went exploring as I usually enjoy doing and walked around the other cabins our friends were staying in and found them to be as charming as ours with similar rustic charm....some had three bedrooms down to one bedroom to fit any size or need the whole complex would accomodate about 30 people or so and fit our group of 28 perfectly and kept the intimate feel through out. They had well maintained lawns, roads between cabins and a nice pond to enjoy. They had an area set up for outdoor games too. Every cabin had inviting porch rockers and deck out back with rustic table and chairs to dine or hang outside with nice charcoal Webber grills to use.
Our group had the run of the place and felt right at home from the minute we arrived, Location was perfect for traveling to Asheville, Maggie Valley and Waynesville for some shopping, dining, etc. and we found ourselves hurrying back to our cabins just to hang out, chill and relax by the crackling fire on Saturday night.
This location was the perfect escape and we will be returning again and again. It is perfect for a small family reunion, friend getaway or travelers wanting a bit of rest and relaxation. We did not get to meet the Boyd's but we want to thank them for sharing their little slice of heaven with us...if we lived there I don't think I would EVER want to leave!
