Welcome to Mountain Family Lodge! 

Unique Mountain Lodge just off of the Blue Ridge Parkway near Boone and Blowing Rock; also close to Appalachian Ski Mountain and Tweetsie Railroad.  Mountain Family Lodge can sleep up to 30 guests among 12 bedrooms and 3 sleeper sofas.  8 full bathrooms and 2 updated kitchens with ample dining options make this suitable for larger groups.  

*** We do permit larger events here. We do not assist in facilitating or coordinating such events, however the owner does permit them on a case-by-case basis.  If you are renting this property for a wedding, family reunion, or any other event involving attendance of more than 26 guests (maximum number under advertised rates without additional guest fees).  Please indicate the Event Impact Fee when booking online, or let us know if booking over the phone of your plans.  We can then contact owner for approval.  Parking for more than 8 to 10 vehicles is not feasible onsite, so off-site parking would need to be arranged with transportation to and from the property.  Also clean-up and vendor evacuation must all be done prior to check-out time ***

Inside offers two living rooms, a media room, and a pool table area for numerous gathering points.  Outside offers a wraparound deck with outdoor dining, a large covered courtyard, a hot tub, an outdoor fire pit, nicely-landscaped yard, and two grills - both gas and charcoal.  Parking is available for up to 8 vehicles, and the surrounding woods and mountain roads offer ample walking and hiking trails, as well as good road cycling and mountain biking. HVAC with central heat and air conditioning was installed after the house was built.  Radiant floor heat on both levels as an additional heat source.  *** New Central HVAC installed within house design which did not consider duct work means that the conditioned air is not always evenly-distributed.  Some rooms can be warmer than others. Lower level typically 10 degrees cooler than upper level, however THERE IS NO A/C ON THE 1st FLOOR *** 

The interior offers an upscale mountain contemporary theme with nice furniture, comfortable beds of all sizes, hardwood floors, kitchens with granite counters and updated appliances, flat panel HDTVs with Charter Cable programming, and WiFi internet.  Two sets of washers and dryers - one of each floor.  The comfy media room offers a projector screen and projector for TV and movie-watching.  Both living rooms - one on each floor - offer HDTVs and plenty of comfortable seating.  The primary dining area can seat up to 20 guests comfortably, and each kitchen also has a dining room which can seat up to 14 additional guests.  The 8-foot slate pool table is in a central area of the house which has soaring ceilings and a cupola which lets in natural sunlight.

You may cancel within 24 hours of booking and receive a full refund,
If you cancel more than 60 days before arrival, you will receive a refund of half of the amount paid to date,
Cancellations within 60 days before arrival do not receive a refund.  But you may recover the entire amount if travel insurance was purchased and the reason for cancellation is covered.

Orient Express Suite (sleeps up to 4) - Large bedroom with king bed and full sleeper sofa.  Also has en-suite full bathroom as well as glass door which leads out onto the deck.  This could essentially be considered the primary master suite based on the size of the bedroom and that it is a king bed. However as all of the suites are roomy and most have full bathrooms, no suite is outwardly nicer than another - they are all roomy, comfortable, and offer upscale appointments. Has an HDTV.

Secret Garden Suite (sleeps 2) - has a queen bed and a full bathroom with a tub and shower. Also has glass door which leads out onto the patio.

Blue Ridge Manor Suite (sleeps 4) - 2 bedrooms, one with 2 twin beds and one with queen bed. Also has a full bathroom with tub and shower. Has glass door which leads out onto the view-side patio.

There is a full kitchen on each level with oven and stovetop, full refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher in both.  The upstairs kitchen is currently being completely remodeled, and there are new appliances going into the downstairs kitchen (pictures to come in May!).

There is a sitting room with ample comfortable seating as well as an HDTV and BluRay player on the lower level, as well as a media room which also offers comfy seating and a HD projector screen TV with BluRay/DVD player.  There is a nice family-style sun room on the upper level with sofas and chairs flanking the perimeter walls, as well as a large HDTV with BluRay/DVD player.  Both the media room and sitting room have sleeper sofas for additional sleeping options.  We currently have 8 HDTVs and many DVD/BluRay players which offer more viewing flexibility to our guests.

In the center of the upper level is a dramatic cupola which offers towering ceilings and high windows which offer natural light.  Underneath the cupola is a large 8-foot slate pool table which also has a custom wooden top that converts it into a large dining table that seats 14 guests.  Adjacent is a second dining table which can seat 6 to 8 more guests.  There is also a dining area in each of the 2 kitchens which seat 6 and 8 respectively.  With all 4 tables, you can dine up to 34 guests inside.  There is also a washer and dryer on each of the two floors.

Outside, in addition to the wrap-around deck on the upper level and the covered stone courtyard at the steps of the primary front door, you will find a wonderful wood-burning fire pit, a hot tub, and a new large outdoor entertaining veranda with ample dining capabilities and a gas or charcoal grill, with stone floor and locust post-supported metal roof, which has been a big hit since its recent completion!

Very friendly. Worked with me to get the issue resolved and informed me of all updates. I appreciated that!!
The property is a beautiful property. The views were amazing. It was easy to find and about 15 minutes from town. Unfortunately due to a water outage there was a delay in the cleaning process which delayed our check-in time; however, we were compensated for the inconvenience. Management notified me of every update. The lawn wasn't maintained prior to our arrival. The lawn did not look like the pictures advertised on the website. Due to the water issue, we really only had one day to fully enjoy the place. It was a little disappointing because it really is a gorgeous place. (The water issue was caused by failed well pump, which was replaced hours after occurrence. We're so disappointed that it impacted your stay. -Mgt)

Heads up on a few things (didn't affect our stay, but good for you to know in general): - Pool table is missing one ball (not sure which one) - Lower outside grill cover is torn (not sure if that will eventually make your grill rust early?) - I can't remember which bathroom, but the shower looked like the nobs were going to come off / loose. You'll know it when you see it.

Staff at Carolina Cabin Rentals took awhile to plug us into the system (we were with the old property management group), but after that were excellent to work with. I believe if we had any problems during our stay they would have been taken care of right away. But we did not have any problems.
We had a really good time in the place which accommodated our family of 14 very nicely. Enjoyed the large dining table (pool table) which seated us all, especially the light coming into this area from above. Loved the way you redid the kitchen upstairs. Loved the large living room with some unique furnishings. The lock on the front door was broken when we arrived, and was fixed within the hour, even tho we were a ways out from town. The grass was all trimmed while we were there. Loved sitting around the fire outside.

Nice friendly staff who helped work through our transition from original booking with Ashe County Real Estate to Carolina Cabin Rentals. Especially liked the check-in and check-out process on-site without having to process through the office in person. Very convenient and efficient.
Very nice property for rental by a large family such as ours. Very roomy and easily accommodated our 25 person family. Beautiful mountain views from 2nd level wrap around porch. Wildlife viewing in back yard each evening in the form of deer (buck, doe and white spotted fawn) and wild turkeys feeding at the apple tree. Upstairs kitchen was remodeled and had new appliances since booking in Dec. 2015. Back patio was covered by metal roof since booking in Dec. 2015 and new grass area was added for volley ball/children's play area to name a few.

The staff we worked and spoke with always went well out of their way to make our experience great. Very well done by professional staff that cared about the customers/clients. This was our second rental from you and our first experience was great too which is why I came back to you first when planning this trip.
I highly recommend adding a floor plan to your web page and at a minimum, pics of ALL bedrooms. We had 10 couples thinking this was a 12 bedroom place but didn't realize one or two of the bedrooms were attached to another main bedroom which would be good for parent/kids but not for two couples. The floor plan was odd and a maze but for 10 couples suited our needs well. More than 10 couples though, we would have been surprised with the layout and a couple or two would have to give up some privacy.

Carolina Cabin Rental were very nice and professional, it is just the house that is priced very high for quality and cleanness. Even the furniture was very old broken except in the sun room it was nice but you can fit all the people in that room. Again I rented from Carolina Cabin rentals before and I was very satisfied, it is just that house that is a bit over marketed.
Defiantly not worth what we paid for. No Air conditioning, Toilet Seats were old and dirty. it was not what I expected from Carolina Cabin Rentals at all.

The Lodge was a great venue for our wedding and all of our guests had a great time. Some suggestions for improvement might be to add a public access bathroom upstairs as there are only 2 bathrooms in the upstairs and both are in bedrooms. Adding more box fans in each room could help with keeping the place cooler in the hot summer months.
