This cabin is a wonderful escape from the fast pace of everyday life, on a secluded road with few neighbors and a *spectacular* view, it offers a sense of privacy, peace and tranquility that is difficult to find.
The cabin itself offers all the modern amenities you can ask for to live and entertain you and your family or guests: high speed internet, satellite tv, fully stocked kitchen (including an espresso maker, very important!), board games, a game room with pool and air hockey, video games, plenty of movies on dvd, a hot tub, fire pit, and bbq grill. Along with ample space for everyone to feel as though they have their own place to spread out with a unique layout that divides the cabin into 3 large sections, living and dining, den/office/game room, and secluded 2nd floor master bedroom with ensuite and balcony.
But, the real star of the show here is the view from the main cabin balcony. A majestic sight of rolling mountains and foggy clouds forming in the valleys below you creates a sense of wonder that defies explanation. This wondrous feeling extends to the nighttime hours, when the symphony of insect sounds from the woods connects you to the nature and life all around you, yet hidden from sight. The fast moving clouds and moonlight create a stunning dance, and occasionally some lightning in the distance creates beautiful visual effects over the distant mountains. Early on in the evening, the cloud cover is typically less and during the clear, cloudless moments you can see the outline of the Milky Way with the naked eye. The main cabin balcony is also a great spot to capture sunrise photos because it's facing east and the sun rises over the mountains just beyond the valley below, it's truly an amazing sight just to behold on its own but if you enjoy photography of that sort it's a wonderful location.
The three bedrooms are all comfortable and well appointed, the bedroom at the front of the cabin offers the same amazing view as the main balcony, but be warned that it gets bright early, I would recommend this for early risers. The second bedroom is tucked away behind the living area and offers more darkness later into the day, better for those who like to sleep in. The master bedroom offers the best of both, the blinds create great darkness for sleeping in, but the windows allow plenty of light in if so desired and also offer the same view as the main balcony over the length of the cabin, a view you can also take in from the elevated balcony attached to the bedroom. All the beds were comfortable to sleep in, each room had a tv so that everyone can watch whatever they'd like without fighting over the programming.
The living area offers a large couch in front of the wood burning fireplace and a separate pull out sofa, along with plenty of books to read in a very cozy armchair which I thought was a very nice touch. The dining room table seats 8, and the picnic table along with the high top table on the balcony has space for 10. The den where the media is located & the game room both have doors that can be closed so as not to bother each other with loud noises while others are trying to sleep or relax, perfect for kids or adults who behave like kids. The cabin is also dog friendly with food bowls and even an outdoor lounger for your four legged friend.
I highly recommend visiting this cabin and taking in the 1 Million Dollar view for yourselves!

We stayed at the 1 Million Dollar view home in January of this year and it was absolutely gorgeous cabin, beautiful views. It's just as nice as the pictures show. We stayed for a few nights and had the best time. The place is outstanding in every way one could imagine. The mountain views are tremendous. A really high class place. I would recommend this getawy home to anyone trying to disconnect from the everyday routine and spend a great time up in the mountains enjoying the views and the Amazing cabin! A plus all the way!! Loved it!

We stayed Super Bowl weekend and had an amazing time. Our family consists of my husband and I, 2 teenagers and 1 young adult. We had so much room that we were never cramped. We spent time together as a whole and some in pairs and could do so without bothering each other. The layout of the house was different but worked out wonderfully. They loved the huge tv and game room. The movie room was great for all of us. The kitchen had plenty of supplies for cooking and the laundry area was also nice. We enjoyed the hot tub, fire place and the wonderful view. Beds were comfy and it was clean and inviting. I would definitely recommend to anyone wishing to get away.

We headed to this property for my wife's birthday with a few of our close friends. The plan was initially to grill, relax, hike, bike, kayak, and sleep in. We awoke the first morning around 6am to one of the most beautiful sunrises I have ever seen! Needless to say, we didn't sleep in one morning with this amazing view. The amenities were awesome, friends played billiards, air hockey, enjoyed the hot tub, grilled and indulged in a cocktail while drinking in the setting sun. We had our four legged friends with us and they enjoyed the fenced in side yard and some comfy dog beds that we set on the deck for them to take in the fresh air, it was impossible to get them inside at night they loved it so much! The area was great for all outdoor activities and there was a great restaurant nearby that serves amazing food and drinks called Artisanal. The long and short is that there are millions of great things to do in the area, the problem is...you have to peel yourself away from that view!!

Beautiful home with everything that you could want. We booked 1 Million Dollar View last minute, and we were so lucky it was available. It was very private, and we made a point of waking up every morning to see the sunrise. The view was amazing. The media room was perfect for watching movies. They had several gaming systems, and even had an Atari for our inner 80's kids! We used the hot tub, the fire pit, the pool table, and the air hockey table, and all were in excellent condition. We had to force ourselves to leave the cabin! We will be back for sure.

The views and the wood burning fireplace were our favorites and the location was so convenient to everything. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home!

1 Million Dollar View was AMAZING! Very clean, very organize and very cozy! A lot of soft blankets, a lot of seating areas, and a lot of room if you have a big family. The game room and theater room were a big hit for the kids. The fenced in yard really helps if you have dogs. Our favorite part was not leaving the cabin, slowing down and relaxing next to the wood burning fireplace. Highly recommend this cabin for family's and couples. The Hot Tub was Awesome! They also provide dog bowls & a big dog bed if you are planning to bring your pets.

This home was perfect for our Christmas in the mountains! It was clean and comfortable, so rustic yet modern, and offered views of mountains and valleys like I had never seen. We enjoyed the extensive porch with the comfy chairs, the fire pit and hot tub. The house was full of games to play, puzzles to work and books to read. We had a wonderful week, but wish we could have stayed longer!
- Melissa, Posted: 01/23/2020
The property was great!!! The layout of the house was perfect for our family. Would love to return again!

This house was/is amazing! Thanks for making our ski trip our 1st family trip to remember! I think we'll continue staying here for future trips! Gorgeous views! We had a rainbow and snow!

Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals have been a pleasure to work with! We have stayed in 2 different properties of theirs and have zero complaints. Their staff are also very accommodating and do a great job making sure their renters have everything they need to make their stay as perfect as possible. I definitely recommend them to anyone!!
- Anna, Posted: 03/12/2020
Best vacation house we have ever rented! The house was spotless on arrival and there were many small extras throughout the house that we hardly needed anything. Would love to return to this rental in the future.

WOW. This is for sure more than a 1 million dollar view! The drive up to the cabin was beautiful, but when we entered the cabin we were completely speechless. The entire cabin was very clean, organized, and beautifully decorated. It is a perfect log cabin for families, couples, friends, or absolutely everything. I was so impressed by all the little details that went into this cabin with its home-like feeling. They even had a game room!! The game room had air-hockey, a pool table, and some awesome speakers to play your favorite music. The cabin was amazing, and the beds were very comfy. But, the porch was the show-stopper. The porch is the length of the house, and has absolutely everything you need outside. From two different tables and chairs, to lounge chairs to watch the sunrise (THE BEST SUNRISE EVER), a fire-pit, and a hot tub (which let me tell you, is best when its 8 degrees and snowing!). The cabin is very dog friendly, with some dog bowls, leashes, and a small fenced in yard. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need, and they have tons of board games you can play! One of my favorite touches was the guest book where you can sign your name, date, and some comments. You can really tell the owners are very friendly, and love this house as much as the people who stay there. While we spent most of the time in the beautiful cabin, we also explored the town a bit. I would 100% recommend Banner Elk Winery which is about 8 minutes away from the cabin, as well as Stone Wall Restaurant. My boyfriend even found this cabin to be the perfect location to propose to me!! I cannot wait to spend more time and take some more trips to this cabin, as I would recommend the 1 Million Dollar View to everyone and anyone. I came back from vacation so relaxed, and not wanting to leave. Thank you so much to Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals for making this vacation so unforgettable!!

The property was private and quiet. The views were great and loved watching the sunrise every morning. The home was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked. The house had plenty of room to spread out. The yard was great for the dog and plenty of places for walks. We would definitely rent again. Just loved it.
- Jennifer, Posted: 08/10/2020
Beautiful views. Wonderful area for dining, hiking, & chilling. Very well appointed kitchen.
- A., Posted: 10/19/2020
Excellent rental just in time for peak season! The view was incredible and the house was clean and very well stocked with kitchen items as well as plenty of towels (even for the hot tub)! Loved that our furry friends could join us and that the house had ample dog bowls and raised beds for them to use as well! We had an absolute blast and would definitely recommend this house to rent!
- Amy, Posted: 11/10/2020

- Karen, Posted: 01/21/2021
My Family loved the location and the truly Million Dollar view. There was something for everyone to do and the kitchen was extremely accommodating.
- Cynthia, Posted: 01/21/2021
"1 Million Dollar View" is aptly named! The view, as well as the location, is ideal. Our family of 4 humans & 2 dogs had plenty to do at the cabin & lots of space to spread out. It is a perfect spot to reconnect as a family. Also, the cabin is conveniently located to Banner Elk, Seven Devils, Boone & Blowing Rock.
- Rebekah, Posted: 01/27/2021
Wonderful cabin, and we had a great time! We have stayed at many cabins through BRMR and this our favorite so far. Our two springer spaniels loved that this house was pet friendly. ?? Not only was it very private yet close to town and trails, but the kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need to cook with. We will definitely be coming back and can't recommend it enough.
- Jenna, Posted: 02/16/2021
Our stay was amazing!! The listing was spot on and the home was beautiful. We enjoyed all the wonderful amenities the home had to offer and the location was great!! We can't wait to come back!
- Sherri, Posted: 02/23/2021
This place was everything we wanted. Cozy and inviting. Kept the kids happy and occupied. Other houses are nearby but it's very private still. Loved everything. Hope to stay here again .
- Nidaa, Posted: 02/26/2021
We wanted a nice view with easy access to slopes and restaurants. This had it all and more. Can't wait to come back!
- Rita, Posted: 03/03/2021
The house exceeded my expectations. It was nicer than the pictures online. The view, all the different areas to hang out, THE VIEW, the hot tub, the covered porch, the sunrise view in the morning. We had a great time hanging out with family. Perfect for skiing at Beech Mountain. Can't say anything but good things about this house. Would recommend. Loved it!
- John, Posted: 03/15/2021
Property is private. There are a few neighbors but not right on top of you. View is beautiful as advertised. The house is laid out a bit odd, but it's perfect if you have kids or teens that want to be off by themselves in a different part of the home.
