Choose from Andrea’s Hillside Cabin with a view of the ridge or the  historical Brookside cottage in Boone, North Carolina. Some of the most affordable rental cabins located within the Blue Ridge Mountains. Just a few miles from ASU as well as the Blue Ridge Parkway. The view from my Hillside Cabin is on the banner of this web site while the cottage sits below on a quiet side street with a big side yard and a babbling brook behind.  Both of my cabins are privately owned and maintained.


Hillside Cabin


Andrea’s Cabins


     Back in 1978 when I left my hometown of Lancaster, Ohio seeking employment and adventure I landed
in Miami, Florida where I stayed and worked for the next 20 years. During that time I made numerous
trips by car back home to see mom and It was on these trips that I fell in love with the mountains. I
must have made a vow to live here someday because I finally made the move in 1996 and have not
regretted it at all. The mountains have a draw for some of us, not to mention the cooler air is really nice
in the summer when the rest of the country has triple digit temperatures.

     I stumbled into this vacation rental business and I love it!   I’ve always been a DIYer so I  can take care of almost everything myself so I can offer more affordable rates. The most successful businesses, have offered a great product for a reasonable price and that is the business plan I plan trying to follow. My cabins all have Wi-Fi, cable
TV, A/C, fireplaces, grills, ceiling fans, fully equipped kitchens, and I provide all sheets and towels, and
some toiletries. They are clean, safe, and well maintained and in great locations for all of the activities
in and around Boone. In my travels I have learned that it is best to stay in a central location like our
cabins. Even though the rural properties are equally beautiful be aware that 20-30 country miles on
curvy mountain roads may mean up to an hour travel time. Save your time and gas money by staying
with us. Both of my cabins are in Boone, 3 miles from Appalachian State University I strive to make sure my guests have everything they need and have a good time.
