Great Getaway Cabin Near Boone, Banner Elk and Grandfather, Sleeps 9
This delightful cabin is centrally located and close to so many of the most visited attractions here in the High Country. Enjoy the cozy comfort of this true log cabin with wonderful views of Grandfather Mountain.
This home features three stories of comfortable space and sleeping accommodations for 9. It has an open floor plan with a living room with a stone, wood-burning fireplace.
The master suite (with a King bed) is on the main floor with a spacious loft area and second bedroom upstairs (with 2 Queen Beds).

The lower level also has a separate den area with a new flat screen TV, a Wii gaming system (bring your own games), a Queen sized Futon, and a full bath (we count this area downstairs as the 4th bedroom, as there is a private door that closes this lower level off from upstairs). This spacious cabin offers comfort and amenities for all ages.

Great. No problems.
Me and my family are stationed overseas on leave visiting the U.S. For three weeks. The four days at this Cabin have been the best four days of our trip so far, really refreshing getting away from military life for a short period of time.

(The Moorad family Oct 15, 2012)The cabin and surrounding area was lovely. We especially enjoyed the air hockey table! Thank you!!
(Maria Dec 24-27, 20120) Our families gathered together for a wonderful holiday celebration. We enjoyed Hawksnest, tubing, skating and skiing at Sugar Mountain, and going into Boone and Blowing Rock. We also enjoyed making family dinners and playing lots of games in front of your fire. This place is beautiful. We love everything and the game room has been a hit!! A very comfortable house for our 3 families.
(The Suieeds)We had a wonderful time. Location was perfect to see all the places. Thank you so much. We can’t wait to come back.
(3/23-26, 2013 The Whites, Jax FL)God has blessed you folks big time. What a wonderful home. We had a great time. Must leave but may be back.
(3/29, 2013)We wanted an easter weekend getaway and a fun place to celebrate our son’s 9th birthday. When we confirmed the grandparents were joining us here from New Jersey, we knew this place would fit our needs perfectly. After arriving on Friday we watched birds from the front deck. The kids (we haven’t seen them since we arrived) have been in the basement playing and outside having snowball wars. Later, watched more NCAA madness with a cozy fire in the stove – we are blissfully blessed here! And the kids want to bring your sports basement home with us.
(April 3 to 7, 2013. Fayetteville, NC. Sessonis-Marshburn, Harris & Sherard)Drove up today from Fayetteville. The cabin is so cozy and beautiful. The kids love the game room. Today the sun was out, close to 55 degrees. Exciting day. Trip to Mystery Hill, drove up to Blowing Rock, then hiking on the Blue Ridge Parkway – BEAUTIFUL! Thank you so much for allowing us to share your home. We took good care of it and hope to return soon. We have three teenage boys and for the first time we actually had a fun-filled, no arguing, vacation! Quote from same family: This was a trip that the whole family enjoyed. We have a big family and most of the time our kids fight because they don’t have enough to do! This time we had plenty. Thank you for your cabin. We enjoyed!

(May 28-31, 2013)My husband and I arrived here on Tuesday. We both fell in love with your cabin and the area. We came to the mountains to unwind and refresh and this is exactly what we did. On Wednesday, we went to Grandfather Mountain by the Blue Ridge Parkway (thank you for advising us of the shortcut.) We really enjoyed your beautiful front porch and the view of Grandfather Mountain. We leave tomorrow after 3 nights and would like to thank you for sharing your cabin. I hope we can come back and bring the family. Ike and Carolyn

(Dec 27, 2013.) Last year at Christmas it was decided we would do our next Christmas somewhere else, “do something different.” We selected your lovely cabin and had a wonderful vacation.

Our two dogs loved your accommodations, too. Thanks for being pet friendly. John and Cathy Boynton

Thank you for allowing us to rent the Grandfather Vista. We had an AMAZING stay. Everything was perfect. We give 5's on all the questions provided, better yet we give 10's. One question ask would we recommend this cabin to anyone else...........the answer is yes and no. Yes because the entire adventure was amazing, gorgeous place, clean, homey, comfortable, easy to find, close to all attractions, and the list goes on and on. The no answer is because we want to rent it out every time we come up there and don't want it booked.........we want it all to ourselves. We could not ask for a better place with small children. The entertainment provided for the children was perfect. The wii, dvd, large tub, game room, and all the room provided for them to play. Thank you so much for allowing us to rent this cabin.

The cabin was nice overall. It was spacious and comfortable for 8. It was in the perfect location and everyone enjoyed their stay. The game room was a big hit for the little ones, especially when the adults wanted to relax and stay in. We would definitely stay at Grandfather Vista again and use Mountain Lodge Realty!

My 7 year old daughter found this cabin online and said we HAD to come here (she's an air hockey fan and the game room won her over.) I absolutely loved this cabin and wish we could be here longer. We enjoyed coming "home" each night, following our many adventures. My daughter loves the room in the wall in the upstairs bedroom. Hard to say what my favorite part of the cabin is - the front porch is a high contender! At any rate, tomorrow we go home and the time here has flown by. Lesson learned - 3 days is not enough. Would love to come back to Grandfather Vista again. Thanks for a wonderful getaway! (August 9, 2012)

Had a great, long weekend to celebrate our twins' 12 th birthday. They each brought a friend, and this cabin served four 12-year olds quite well. The boys are hockey players and fans, so the downstairs was a hit! The girls enjoyed darts and video games (I think someone got a high score), and all four kids made their own Mini-Olympcs of activities. When not enjoying the cabin, we had a great time ziplining at Hawksnest and kayaking down the New River (FYI: second oldest river in the world. So we were told!) Thank you for opening up your home to us. We hope to be back again soon! (August 2, 2012)
