Fabulous house with large porch, seasonal views and cool breezes. Close to town, but feels like a world away. Very secluded at the end of a private road.

We've lived just down the road for years and love the peaceful setting. We own the Gamekeeper Restaurant outside of Blowing Rock, and we invite you to dine with us there. Please ask us about a gift certificate.

There's a downstairs, one bedroom apartment that we reserve for friends & family, but it's also available as an add-on. Please let me know if you're interested.

*During the winter months there is always a chance of snow. For your advantage, and for the sake of the others who use this road, we request a guarantee that you'll be traveling in an all-wheel drive or a 4-wheel drive.

*We love animals, but for the sake of our guests with allergies, we do...

My fiancé and I could not have chosen a better place to stay in Boone. Ken & Wendy (the owners) were very helpful and welcoming when we called them with some questions. They had their home and cell numbers posted on the fridge and told us to call them anytime if we needed anything. The bungalow itself has a very secluded feel despite being less than 10 minutes away from town. Everything was clean and...

The location of this cabin could not be more ideal--close to plenty of amenities (food, visitor's center, grocery) and a short, easy drive to downtown Boone/campus but far enough away you feel like you are enjoying the scenery and mountains. Also, cabin comes fully equipped with Roku in the living room and master bedroom, with access to Netflix and Hulu accounts (small detail, but major plus). The driveway--many have mentioned it in their reviews. I...
