Beautiful home that fit our App St family perfectly!
- Bradley, Posted: 09/20/2023
A Family Tradition was the perfect place for our family staying in Boone for App St family weekend. We had adults, college students, a toddler and our dog with us this trip. Everyone was more than comfortable, this will be my first choice for a place to stay next trip!

We really enjoyed our stay! The wide, wraparound porch (part covered and part open) was delightful. We were also pleasantly surprised to see built-in gates on the porch that made it where we could watch our two medium dogs run around outside as if they were in a fenced yard and not have to worry about them getting loose and running down the steps to the yard. The hot tub on the deck was very enjoyable and easy to follow the instructions to use. We appreciated being able to spread out over 3 levels, and the pool table was a fun addition. Since 2 of our party are big hot tea drinkers, it was really nice having the electric kettle as well as a coffee pot for our coffee drinkers. Ample starting supplies for kitchen and bathrooms. We loved having the EV charger feature, since we have an electric car--so convenient! All in all, it was a great place for our party of 4 family members and 2 dogs--the dogs really loved it too! I could see us coming back!

This was our 5th year enjoying a week long vacation at A Family Tradition and we continue to enjoy it tremendously!
With 3 levels this house has plenty of room for our 6 adults and our dogs. The dogs especially enjoy the wrap around deck, and we also enjoy the deck because half of it is uncovered and half of it is covered, which is great for being able to enjoy the occasional mountain shower.
This year we noticed the many renovations since last year including the refinished hardwood floors, the new paint on building and decks, and a new full sized refrigerator/freezer.
We look forward to staying here next year!

It was super fun house. We all enjoyed it and it got us talking about doing a mountain weekend yearly. Didn't disappoint

Great cabin in a great location. Really enjoyed having the pool table/rec room downstairs. BRMR has great communication before, during, and after and I really liked that.
- John, Posted: 01/30/2023
Great location. Not too far away from the ski resorts. Definitely would recommend
- Stephanie, Posted: 09/30/2022
Beautiful home. The hot tub was awesome. Would definitely rent again if we come back to Boone!
- Collin, Posted: 08/30/2022
Phenomenal place and location. Would highly recommend this property
- Jon, Posted: 07/21/2022
This was our fourth year staying at this wonderful, large, and well equipped house. With the three floors (each with a bathroom), the large wrap around deck, and the spacious interior, this house works great for our family of 6 adults and dogs.
We plan to return year!

Lovely and super clean large cabin, convenient to Boone. Especially enjoyed the wrap around porch!
- Colby, Posted: 07/07/2022
Fantastic mountain retreat. I will be booking this location more moving forward especially for future App Games.
- Robert, Posted: 05/12/2022
Outstanding customer service from reservations. Very easy key-less entry. House was very spacious and clean. Porches are large and parts are covered. Rockers on the porch make it nice. Plenty of parking. A convenient location to quickly get into Boone and Blowing Rock.
- Stewart, Posted: 03/15/2022
We really enjoyed the hot tub on the porch with views of the mountains. The house was as advertised. It provided quick access to Boone and a short drive to Sugar Mountain which was our main priority
- Jennifer, Posted: 02/21/2022
Nice house and location.
- Cynthia, Posted: 02/11/2022
My family stayed with you for a mini vacation to go snow tubing at Hawksnest. We had the best time!! The house exceeded my expectations. It was better than the pictures. Amenities were perfect. The kitchen had everything you needed. House was spotless. Great neighborhood and close to town. Will definitely book this house again. We have started a new family tradition!!!
- Scott, Posted: 11/01/2021
great location, close to downtown Boone and beautiful, clean cabin. The cabin had good sources of entertainment and plenty of parking and sleeping space.
- Lauren, Posted: 09/07/2021

- Khaled, Posted: 09/06/2021
Nice place to stay in!!!
- Jon, Posted: 07/22/2021
This was our third year at this house and continue to love it! This house works very well for our family of 6 and our dogs due to the size of the house, the 3 floors, and the wrap around deck. We are planning on returning next year.
- Marina Soledad, Posted: 06/24/2021
Love it! customer service the place to stay everything was awesome , cant wait to come back again!
- Jane, Posted: 03/31/2021
Lovely home; 3 levels were helpful so families had separate areas. We loved the hot tub and fireplace, both were very easy to use. House was clean and well equipped. Convenient location for Boone and Blowing Rock.
- Ivy, Posted: 03/16/2021
All aspects of our stay was absolutely wonderful.
- Jessica, Posted: 02/09/2021
The house was perfect! Very spacious and in a great location!
- Emily, Posted: 02/02/2021
Everything was perfect!! We even got to see snow while we were there! Very clean, close to downtown Boone, owners were very communicative!
- Melissa, Posted: 01/25/2021
A Family Tradition was better than we could have ever expected. The three separate floors allowed everyone to have their space and the hot tub & pool table brought us back together. The kitchen was a great space to both cook, eat and enjoy evening game time and the dogs absolutely loved spending time on the fully enclosed wraparound deck! We will definitely visit A Family Tradition again!
- Melissa, Posted: 06/22/2020
We had a wonderful getaway. The location is perfect. We loved using the fire pit and enjoyed the porch. The bedrooms accommodated our family of 5 plus the grandparents with lots of room to move around.
- Alie, Posted: 03/16/2020
We had a wonderful time in Boone. The cabin was conveniently located & was very homey. There was plenty of room for everyone to move around without being right on top of each other.
- Stephanie, Posted: 02/24/2020
This house is in a quiet neighborhood and VERY spacious. Plenty of room to spread out. Our family enjoyed the pool table, outside fire pit and hot tub. House is a bit of a drive from ski slopes.
- Brittany, Posted: 01/30/2020
Everything was as expected. This is our second time stay at A Family Tradition and the house was amazing and the booking process, checking in and out was very smooth. I love the upgrade to keyless entry and getting updates through texts. Thanks again for an amazing get away!!!
- Jennifer, Posted: 01/29/2020
We loved every moment of our stay in this clean, comfortable cabin. The layout was spacious, allowing the little kids, the teens, and the adults to spread out into separate areas. At the same time, the living room and the dining table are big enough for everybody to gather when we wanted to. The pool table was a big hit. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings under the starry sky, and we had a bonfire one night, too. We had planned some adventures nearby, but we were so happy and cozy in the cabin that we never left!
- Steve, Posted: 12/18/2019
Everything that was needed for our stay was in the cabin. Cooking utensils, dishes, toiletries, etc... Very nice, paved, roads leading to the cabin. We were very happy.
- Carol, Posted: 11/12/2019
A Family Tradition was a very nice and comfortable house. We enjoyed the wrap around porch, the deer in the yard, and the spacious bedrooms and kitchen.
- Robert, Posted: 02/28/2019
We had a wonderful long weekend. The house was perfect for our needs. Next time we will Stay longer. There are plenty of beds and the pool table was a huge hit since it rained all weekend. Don’t Hesitate to book if you are heading to Boone. It’s close to everything
- Cheryl, Posted: 12/18/2018
Yes, would definitely recommend! Beautiful home and nicely decorated. The hot tub was awesome. Unfortunately, lots of snow on the ground so couldn't enjoy the fire pit but the maintenance people did a great job making sure we had access to deck and driveway by clearing a path. Very nice to have the starter set of amenities as well!
- Liana, Posted: 08/06/2018
We had a wonderful stay at A Family Tradition. The cabin is very comfortable, clean and well stocked with anything you need. Location is excellent...close to town! Looking forward to staying there again
- Bonnie, Posted: 07/27/2018
My family had a great time at this cabin. Our 3- and 1-year old loved running laps around the porch while we cooked or grilled. There was plenty of room for grandparents and my two sisters. We really appreciated the location- nearly equal distance between downtown and out to adventurous hikes on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The kitchen is well-appointed, the beds were comfortable, the hot tub was very clean. And while the house isn't super fancy, it was the perfect choice for our family: comfortable, clean, and not full of fragile decorations or trinkets that I had to guard from my kiddos!
- Joseph, Posted: 07/03/2018
Loved staying with Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals. I especially loved the express check-in. We were very comfortable in our cabin and it was in a fantastic location!
- Karen, Posted: 02/20/2018
Wonderful house with lots of room!!! We loved it!!!
- Scott, Posted: 09/12/2017
We are from Sarasota, FL and had to make last minute reservations for one of the Blue Ridge rentals in order to flee hurricane Irma. The entire staff at Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals are the friendliest and most helpful people we've dealt with. The "Family Tradition" mountain home we've rented is absolutely beautiful, clean, and very tranquil! Due to the unknowns with the storm, we called the office to extend another day and they had it done immediately. We've agreed that we will be back for vacations.
- Richard, Posted: 06/29/2017
Living space and kitchen were beautiful and comfortable. Weather was a perfect 70 degrees, loved the hot tub, the fire pit, the beautiful surroundings, the volume of rooms and great accommodations and our grandchild loved the wrap around covered porch that literally wore him out. Could not think of any better way to spend time. We will be back to make this our "Family Tradition".
- Victra, Posted: 10/24/2014
We have had a wonderful stay. This was our second stay at A Family Tradition and it is an appropriate name. Thanks for sharing your blessings with others. We were blessed by God's beauty and your second home's accommodations.
- Kathy, Posted: 07/10/2014
What a wonderful place to kick back and relax if that's what you wanted to do. In the area, there were so many places to visit and tons of activities to check off our bucket lists. We went Horseback riding in the mountains, kayaking on the New River, hiking many times, biking in the neighborhood, fishing the Watauga River, Trout lake, Bass Lake, and the New River etc., etc., etc. !!!!! We had three generations of family ... (grandparents, children, grandchildren), from around the country ... ( Buffalo / Niagara Falls, NY., Louisville, KY, and Wellington, FL. We all had a blast making memories at A Family Tradition! The cabin was the perfect size for all of us to enjoy our own space, and yet small enough to feel cozy and inviting. We spent the days exploring the area, and the evenings enjoying a throwback vacation with no electronics at all. (Even though there was WiFi in the house, we didn't feel the need to use it very often). It was such a relaxing place to be, and the neighbors were All so nice to us. :-) The cabin had just about everything that we needed for the week. We cooked tons of meals, and enjoyed playing pool, reading on the porch, and using the hot tub. We ALL would love to be able to stay here every year, and truly make this "A Family Tradition"!
- Cindy, Posted: 06/08/2014
We loved the house and the location. It was beautiful and peaceful. It was close to most attractions we were interested in. It was child safe! Our grandchildren are very active( ages 10 months, 3 and 4 YO and a 9 Year old) and were did not have to worry about falling off the porch to a bottomless mountain! We all enjoyed the hot tub on the porch. Thanks.
- Diana, Posted: 05/11/2014
The house was wonderful and was fully equipped with everything we needed, which was awesome. The house was perfect for our family and we enjoyed our son's graduation from App!
