We were lucky to find this house for a quick weekend trip to check out the area. The house is adorable and spotless. Sitting on the back porch with a glass of wine in hand and looking out over the beautiful rolling hillside was the perfect way to wind down after taking a long drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway and checking out Grandfather Mountain and Boone. I was looking for a house that was off the beaten path but still close to places we wanted to see and this house checked every box.
If you want crowds or nightlife, this is not the spot for you. If you want peace and serenity in a beautiful setting, I highly recommend!
I was seeking mountain therapy and pure relaxation and this place certainly delivered! The cabin is nestled on the top of rolling hills with long range mountain views and views of Christmas tree farms from the amazing back deck. The beautiful interior wood cabin was very clean, cozy and well organized. In addition, it was easy to access with a key box and clear directions provided by the owner. It had everything I needed for comfort (keurig and coffee maker, appliances, comfortable beds, great wifi). I really enjoyed stargazing in the hot tub on the back deck followed by sipping hot cocoa while reading beside the gas fireplace after a day of skiing. This house is near the river as well with beautiful, serene views. While feeling like you are away from it all, you are only 20 minutes from Boone and close to all area attractions (Sugar Mountain, Beech Mountain, Alpine Coaster, Parks, Ziplining, Mining experiences, Grandfather mountain, hiking, etc.) This area is full of fun and incredible activities! The owner was a pleasure to work with and made the booking process and this entire vacation rental experience seamless and pleasant. I highly recommend it!
Toni is a great host. The cabin had everything we needed. Comfortable beds and furniture. The hot tub was great!! The property was great and allowed for privacy. We will come back!!! We had so much fun.
We have stayed at TLC many times. Todd is a great place to stay to really capture the mountain experience outside of the commercialized areas. But it’s not too far to enjoy the restaurants and special shops in Boone and Blowing Rock. Toni has always been a pleasure to work with and communication is great to assure you have all you need. My kids love the car climb to get to the cabin at the top of the mountain. It snowed 6in while we were there so the Hot Tub was awesome as the flakes fell and it was so convenient that the roads even up to the cabin were scraped after every snow. The cabin had all you need! Be sure to visit in the spring and summer too! It’s beautiful! We love it at TLC in Todd!
We've stayed in rental homes around the world, but none are as peaceful, clean, or comfortable as Toni's place. My husband and I have stayed here three times and each visit is better than the last. This visit, the house was decorated for Christmas. It felt like we were living inside a Christmas card for a few days!
Staying here is a joy. We're already looking forward to our next visit!
