Love. Love. Love this place..... We had snow on the first day and ended up warm and sunny on our last two days. We love the cabin. We love the location - and the privacy of farallon. This cabin has everything you need - a great fire pit outside...and great view from the porch - we will be back!!!

The perfect place for a well needed vacation! After a busy year of hard work, NC has always been our winter spot to stop and unwind. The turn into this little community put big smiles on our faces as we caught a glimpse of this home. The views are incredible. Everything was set-up comfortably, almost like we live here. We had a wonderful time playing in the snow, taking pictures, watching all the deer and just relaxing by the fire. We are so glad we found this cabin and so happy you were able to share it with us. Thanks!

Just returned from a great stay in the mountains. Near the rental cabin, there is an animal sanctuary with rabbits, ducks, donkey, lama, chickens, pigs, goats, horses, and yes a cute watch dog. Love visiting Grandfather mountain where we saw three bears and two otters. Great restaurants. We will return next year.

We stayed at Faralllon for our honeymoon, it was my first time in the mountains of NC. The home has beautiful architecture, all wood interior, a lovely home. Everything we could have had asked for was included, the hot tub being a great feature, in fact we came home and ordered one! The cabin is in Valle Crusis, about a 30 minute drive up the hills from Boone, very secluded, with no other homes visible. We had worked hard to organize my Citizenship, our Marriage and Honeymoon, and this was the perfect retreat. You have to check out the Bue Ridge Parkway with it's many overlooks and beautiful scenery, also be sure to go up Grandfather Mountain, you will remember it forever! Check out the Mast General Store and Over Yonder Restaurant, where the food is excellent, it is not what I would could cheap eating, but the prices are very reasonable for the standard of menu offered. It also has outside seating for the warmer weather. Boone is a busy place, and Blowing Rock is lovely with it's quaint little businesses selling a wide variety of local products. We will definitely go back, maybe on one of our Anniversaries!

We really enjoyed our stay from the moment we stepped into your home. It was so clean and bright and your decor made the house feel so warm and cozy. The fireplace was great! Sitting on the rocking chairs on the deck was a wonderful way to begin and end the day. The Jacuzzi was so relaxing. Thanks again. Chris and linda

Awesome place! It was a great cabin out in the woods. I'll definitely point out that when they recommend 4WD/tire chains, they mean it. there's a little bit of driving off the paved road that couldn't have been done without 4WD because of the snow. The house was cozy and clean, the hot tub was great, and being secluded was awesome. I'd stay here again.

“Gorgeous cabin. Very comfortable. The view is gorgeous but mostly blocked by trees. Management is excellent”

Great time The host did everything they promised and also went out their way to get us in early.

“Very impressed with the cabin. Clean, quiet and very private. Deck overlooking mountain was very scenic”
- Ben, Posted: 08/16/2018
“This place had absolutely everything that was described and exceeded our expectations... it was worth every penny. The place was beautiful, spotless, and very well appointed. The communication from management was perfect and we truly appreciate all of their help throughout the entire process. The views are amazing and suggest getting up early to watch the sun rise from the deck. There are too many nice things to say about this place. We cannot wait to return.” “Thank you so much for the perfect vacation. The place was beautiful and perfectly set up. It was so relaxing and peaceful... the small touches/details were very much appreciated. I would also like to thank everyone who responded to our questions in a very timely manner. Again, we had the BEST time and will definitely plan to return. Thanks, Ben & Laura”

The Farallon was spectacular! House was as expected from pictures, and really quiet and picturesque. Trust their directions as they are spot on. Plan to return when the leaves are off and the snow starts! Even the kids loved exploring around the cabin. Thanks!

The property was just like it was listed. Great views, amenities and price. Will be back for sure.

My husband, the dog and I stayed at the Farallon for 6 days and it was AMAZING! The fireplace, fire-pit and hot tub were clean and well maintained. The house is beautiful with lots of room and a very open floor plan and tons of windows to enjoy the view. The beds are very soft with ample pillows and blankets. Lots of dresser and closet space to unpack and feel right at home. There isn't a keurig machine so bring coffee filters to make coffee by the pot. The kitchen is very well stocked with flatware, utensils, pots, pans, bakeware, blender, crockpot, and everything you would need to cook and bake. Make sure to pack storage containers, ziplock bags and such for any left-overs. Also bring condiments, unfortunately I forgot and had to run out to the market for ketchup, mayonnaise, butter, etc :-( Our stay was the beginning of April so there were no leaves on the trees, you can see the rooftop of a few homes but really there was no one around. In the 6 days we were there we did not see a single person. We took hikes around the area and it was so peaceful and beautiful. Watauga County has strict leash laws and there are several farms in the area so please do not let your pet run off leash, it would be very easy for them to get into trouble. You definitely need a 4wd or AWD vehicle to get to the property. We did have to call maintenance on Saturday morning for a pretty bad faucet leak and they came right out and fixed it, I was really surprised at how fast they showed up for a Saturday morning [very professional]. We look forward to visiting again in the future.

We had an amazing time everything was perfect. It is a cozy house with beautiful views.

We enjoyed our stay at the Farallon. It is exactly as pictured and described. The hot tub and fireplace were worth the trip up the steep mountain. We would love to stay in this cabin again. Thanks!

Superb cabin home, very well maintained and well fitted out, nice decor and very functional, hot tub and fire pit (with fire wood provided) are great add ons, location is fairly isolated and 4x4 essential during winter weather, overall I will rent again!!

This a great hideaway on top of the mountain. We had a wonderful week in this cozy cabin. The cabin had everything we needed and some fun games and books. We definitely recommend the fire pit. A quiet retreat from the tourist activity of Boone with all the amenities.
- A., Posted: 08/12/2020
Great cabin in peaceful location! Well equipped kitchen, nice porch to relax in the cool evenings and mornings, enjoyed the outdoor fire pit. Perfect getaway for our family.

- Virginia, Posted: 01/20/2021
Beautiful cabin in awesome location, no one around very secluded and private. Very clean and the best sunrises you will ever see. 4wd a must the driveway is a little sketchy in the snow.
- Lyndsay, Posted: 03/11/2021
Amazing views! Literally at the top and feel like you have the entire mountain to yourself. If you like to explore there are a couple little paths/roads you can follow to the very top of the mountain. Cabin was clean and had everything we needed and wanted from the fire place to the hot tub to make our stay feel more like home! The team responded extremely quickly to every question I had very happy we listened to their recommendations!
- Rachael, Posted: 03/15/2021
This truly is a gem tucked away deep in the mountains. Very private and beautiful location. A small cabin that felt very large with the tall ceilings and open floor plan. Obsessed with the porch, rocking chairs, and killer view.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Farallon! The sun rises from the deck were beautiful and the hot tub felt amazing after a day of taking our dogs hiking. The nights were so quiet and relaxing. Loved hearing the owls! This is a cabin we'd love to stay at again! It was perfect for a quick getaway with our pups!
