This is a terrific getaway cabin! Explore a private, wooded setting with green space and walkable woods around the cabin. Or take a walk back down the gravel road (1 mile, mountainous slope) to experience one of the most beautiful mountain settings in North Carolina where the Watauga River winds gently through the River basin. Once you negotiate the sloped drive back to Watauga River Road, it is flat as it winds along by the river and is great for walking, biking and exploring. There are also excellent trout fishing spots all along the road and many good access points.
Or take a short drive to the famous Mast General Store which opened in 1883 and still offers a cup of coffee for 5 cents. There is frequent live music and a fun array of mountain merchandise and lore (www.mastgeneralstore.com). And for a fun lunch or dinner out, walk across the street to the 1861 Farmhouse Restaurant and Winery where there are wine tastings daily and brunch on Sunday. This cabin is also located centrally in the High Country within easy driving distance of Boone, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk.
This 1BR cabin has a rocking chair front porch and swing and an old fashioned screen door back into the cabin. The living room has a wood stove and flat screen TV with DVD to enjoy a cozy evening after a day of activities in the mountains. The spacious dining area has seating for four and the adjacent kitchen opens to a spacious back deck with wooded views and a hot tub for relaxing after a busy day in the mountains. And for those rare moments when you might want it, this cabin has air conditioning. The bedroom just off the main living area has a queen bed. Up to 4 occupants are permitted at the house.
