We enjoyed our weekend tucked away in the mountains. It rained one day and the cold weather wasn’t that bad. We really enjoy the fireplace and the porch was so peaceful at night. Hopefully we can return and bring others to this home. The Smiths, Charleston, SC

Thank you so much. What a beautiful cabin, we had a wonderful time here on our Honeymoon. Hot tub, dinner at Louisiana Purchase, then relaxing with a beautiful fire and yes - SNOW! What more could you ask for? Pet Friendly!!! Our baby "Reba" loved all of it. This has been one of the most romantic getaways we have ever had.

Beautiful cabin. We enjoyed our stay and can’t wait to return. John did his usual black diamonds over on Sugar Mountain and I made it down the bunny slopes twice John, Kristen and Fiddich

Thank you for sharing your wonderful cabin with us! We thoroughly enjoyed the cozy cabin; the hot tub, fireplace and all the surrounding fun things to do. Thanks for sharing your home with us. We’ll be back! The Mumfords, Wake Forest, NC

If the weather had cooperated, it would have been perfect. It's not that we were looking for snow, but we sure didn't count RAIN. On the bright side, it forced us to slow down and enjoy each other. I'm thinking it might have been too much togetherness for our two boys. We enjoyed the hot tub, games, the beautiful fireplace and yes, TV. Can't wait to come back and do some exploring on foot. Would love to see some waterfalls! Not sure when that will be.

My husband and I were up here for our fourth anniversary, and we loved it here. It was our first time here, the house was wonderful, more than we expected, hope to come back and bring the kids next time The Hollemans, Timberlake, NC

Thank you so much for a relaxing weekend. It was exactly what we needed. Special time just being together in a wonderful cabin. Hope to be back soon
- The Fosters, Posted: 04/22/2015
Thanks so much for having us in your home! I had such a wonderful time your home is the true meaning of cozy relaxing - to say the least it felt like home, so much so we had to stay one extra day. It rained almost all weekend, however the atmosphere made it very pleasant. I will definitely come back again in a few month as a quick getaway since I'm just in Charlotte. Thanks see you soon.
- Ann, Willis and Julie, Posted: 04/29/2015
We had such a wonderful stay. Absolutely loved the cabin and location. The hot tub was amazing! So glad we were able to spend a family retreat here at Hummingbird Hollow. We would love to return during another season. We think fall would be beautiful.
- Lanie and Jeff, Posted: 05/06/2015
I am so beyond happy that I came across this cabin in my search! I was looking for a place that was away from it all to spend time with my boyfriend and be able to bring my fur baby and this had it all! There is nothing I would change. Thank you for making this a home away from home. I can't wait to come back. PS. I would love to see all of the greenery with the buds on it now in full bloom. If anyone is here when that happens it would be great if you would submit a picture, thanks!

I am truly sad to leave this peaceful log cabin perfectly situated in the lush foliage. Waking up to temperatures in the 60's was such a delight. Loved the coziness of each room - each of which was perfectly appointed. "Molly" the beagle came up to visit us each day from somewhere on the mountain. This location was perfectly central to all of our activities: hiking the trails of Grandfather mountain, running at the Valle Crucis Park, shopping at Mast General, eating yummy meals in Boone. We loved every minute of our trip and hope to return one day! Thanks!
- King Family, Posted: 06/04/2015
We had such a great time here at Hummingbird Hollow! The house is beautiful and it had everything and more t hat we needed to make our stay comfortable - I loved how it was secluded and private and how it's just close enough to town - Great restaurants in town too! Capone's pizza was GREAT! Makoto's Japanese Steak House was EXCELLENT! and Dos Amigos was good Mexican food! Grandfather Mountain was a beautiful place to visit and we drove some on the Blue Ridge Parkway which was gorgeous! PS. The daily visit from the resident Robin pecking on the windows in the morning was hilarious!
- Herberts, Posted: 06/12/2015
Thanks so much for allowing us to stay in your lovely home. We were so happy to stay here. It rained the first day but the fireplace kept us cozy warm. We ventured off the rest of our visit. We shopped and on our last day we went zip lining. Yep! Two 50 year old coots went flying through the trees. It was amazing. Everything was fantastic on our trip. I was pleased to see everything we needed was available in the cabin. We felt right at home here. Only one complain... I don't own it. LOL. I have a dream home and this is it. We aren't looking forward to leaving, but work duties call. Can't wait to get back for our next trip. Thanks for letting me bring my babies Pacer and Moe.
- The Cook Family, Posted: 06/17/2015
Nice stay at the cabin. Here for the B.S.G Bike Ride. Good location, close to everything. Try the café bakery in Valle Crucis. Just open a week. Good baked goods, lunches and dinners. Very affordable too. The Cooks, Hollywood, FL

After weeks of looking for the perfect cabin in the mountains my mother found Hummingbird Hollow. She was looking for a place that made her feel like it was home and that I was allowed to come as well. Everything she needed she found with your beautiful cabin. The best part for me was barking at the deer that came to visit. So peaceful I slept the whole time! Thanks a ton.
- William, Posted: 06/24/2015
My sister and I spent a week in your wonderful home. Most of the time we spent enjoying the wonderful deck. It is so peaceful here and just what we both needed. Your home is so comfortable, and we could not have been more pleased. We are looking forward to our next visit to this beautiful area. It was so nice to have all the conveniences of home. Thanks for thinking of everything. We would recommend your cabin to anyone coming up this way. My sister said it perfectly - I couldn't agree more.
- The Spencer Family, Posted: 07/08/2015
Our family stayed in the cabin for Fourth of July. We had a wonderful stay, despite the rain. It rained pretty much the whole trip. We enjoyed all the unique attributes like air hockey and the hot tub. We loved the Mast General Store as well as put put golf in the rain. Hope to come again! The Spencer Family, District of Columbia
- The Friegeri Family, Posted: 08/03/2015
A nice place to spend a couple weeks to escape the Summer Florida heat - like living in a tree house. The home is nicely furnished and comfortable. Bed linens are superb. We did enjoy the wrap around porch and spent most of our time there. The weather was perfect - 70's in days, 50's at night. Good jeans and sports tops weather. The rental agency was easy to work with and immediately responded to our request for more towels and a change of sheets. Brought a stack of brand new ones. The setting is quiet and the mountain air is pure and refreshing. And if you're lucky the neighbors ancient beagle hound will stop by to say "hello." thanks for a memorable get-a-way.
- The Jennings Family, Posted: 08/12/2015
My husband and our two boys came up from Mt. Vernon, VA to have a quick getaway before school started. We had an amazing time! We loved the hot tub, ping pong/airhockey table and just playing chess at the dinner table. We drove into Elizabethton TN and went whitewater rafting – it was AWESOME. This place is perfect for our family – we can’t wait to return. Thanks so much! The Jennings family, Alexandria VA
- The Tucker Family, Posted: 08/24/2015
We had a great long weekend here at Hummingbird Hollow! What a beautiful palace! It was great to be able to enjoy the jacuzzi and the fireplace! When it got chilly at night. We were lucky and had beautiful weather the whole weekend. We went zip-lining at Hawksnest, it was awesome! Highly recommended! We hope to be back here again within the next year. The Blue Ridge parkway was beautiful and only 15 minutes away. Thank you for letting us stay at your lovely cabin!
- The Didonas Family, Posted: 09/10/2015
Everything was above expectations! Thanks for keeping the place so clean and guest ready.
- Tommy & Dennis, Posted: 10/14/2015
Such an adorable and cozy cabin! Just what we were looking for to spend our 3 year anniversary. The hot tub was great and really comfy bed. We took in the sights at Grandfather Mountain, Blue Ridge Parkway, Linville Falls, Linville Caverns - ALL must sees! But there's so much we didn't do so we just might be back!!
- Linda and Riley, Posted: 10/19/2015
Steaks on the grill! So beautifully decorated - it was truly a wonderful vacation!
- David, Posted: 11/30/2015
We really enjoyed having our Thanksgiving here. We enjoyed the beautiful view and the time we needed to just relax. We will be back. Thank you.
- The Edwards Family, Posted: 01/04/2016
We spent Christmas and New Years here celebrating the holidays, and skiing at Beech and Sugar. this is our seventh trip to the area, but our first stay at this cabin in the Valle Crucis area, we usually stay in Banner Elk. We wanted a cabin in Valle Crucis this time for us and our two small children to enjoy after skiing most days. We had about 7 inches of snow over 5-6 days and some very cold nights. We enjoyed the fireplace. Thanks for all the firewood, as we needed it. The living room, decorations, hot tub, day bed area, and two bedrooms were cozy and the furniture was very nice. All in all, we enjoyed our stay here and this is a lovely location and a cozy cabin.
- The Petrie's, Posted: 01/11/2016
What a lovely, warm, well-tended cabin home. My husband, teen and I felt quite at ease here and so did our canine "kids". The location is great, and I'll bet the spring/summer blossoms here are gorgeous. The provisions for our fire-building were very helpful; so was the binder filled with info about the area. We loved the trestle table, and the counter tops, too-unique! And the master bedroom bed!.
- Steve, Shirley, & May, Posted: 01/25/2016
We had a wonderful week. This is a wonderful cabin. We realy enjoyed visiting the area, including ASU
- Sarah, Steven, Tony & Angie, Posted: 02/10/2016
We want to thank you for allowing us to stay in this wonderful cabin. This was a wonderful experience for a first time vacation in the Highlands. We especially loved the drive to the cabin. Thank you.
- Wilcox Family, Posted: 09/06/2016
Hummingbird Hollow was wonderful. Everything was great. We will reserve it again! Thank you!
- Kelly, Tommy, Ripley, & Denali, Posted: 09/30/2016
We came up here for my husband's birthday to spend the weekend. We really enjoyed the homeliness of the cabin, it was so welcoming. This was our first time in Boone/The High County and we had a blast. Great adventures this weekend. I must admit at times I had to close my eyes while Tommy drove down the mountain. OUr dogs thank you for letting them come as well. Thanks for a wonderful vacation. We will definitely be back.
- The Hewitt Family, Posted: 11/30/2016
We spent five nights here. Our daughter and her husband joined us for three nights. We brought our pup (Willie), and he met Molly the beagle. We had our Thanksgiving here, turkey and all the trimmings. Delicious! We used the fireplace every night and we were toasty and warm. We read books, went sight seeing, even went to the Blowing Rock Christmas Parade.Daughter and son in law were studying for exams so mixed quick times with fun times. They enjoyed the hot tub very much. I had trouble with the Direct TV, got help from the rental agent and Direct TV hotline worked it out. Weather was good, got cold and windy on Saturday. NO Snow. A good time was had by all.
- Chris, Posted: 02/13/2017
Hummingbird Hollow is in a great location, the home and grounds are well maintained, the gas grill and hot tub were pristine and everything we could ever need was there for us to use. The home is almost exactly halfway between Sugar and Banner Elk and Boone and Valle Crucis is just down the road. And since Uber is now in Boone, you can take a $16 ride into town for many great F&B options. The rental process with BRVC is the easiest and friendliest we have ever experienced. We're looking forward to returning in the spring to see all of the rhododendrons that surround the property. Thanks so much for an awesome weekend getaway!
- Patrick, Posted: 03/02/2017
Property was as described and very clean when we arrived. Great location close to where we needed to be for skiing. Will be looking into the location again in a few months when I book another trip to go skiing. I have already recommended the property to other people.
- Alexis, Posted: 03/10/2017
Hummingbird hollow is a pristine cabin, perfect for a quick mountain get away. Communication with owner easy, checking in zero hassle, will return! Location great for visiting both Boone and Blowing Rock (a lot of cute shops and a few breweries to check out). We spent a lot of time hiking in Julian Price Memorial Park with our dogs and plan to go back to do Grandfather Mountain. Great area.
- Karen, Posted: 03/30/2017
Second time renting this lovely house for a week. Love this cozy place. Everything is perfect, with one exception. I love to cook, and do a lot of it while here. I will definitely rent here again!!
- Virginia, Posted: 06/27/2017
Extremely nice property. Nice, country style, clean and well kept. Would stay there again.
- Robert, Posted: 08/09/2017
Great stay at Hummingbird Hollow. I took my family of four and had a great time. We ended up having contests to see who could get the highest points on the basketball shooting game in the loft upstairs. My wife won with 113. It's very quiet. It's up in the trees so you have lots of privacy. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils, pots, plates, etc., we cooked almost every day. Hot tub was nice and hot. Sitting out of the large deck under the trees was very relaxing and enjoyable. We're going to come back in September. I have already recommended this cabin to a friend for his upcoming mountain trip.
- Karla, Posted: 09/11/2017
We were so happy staying in this beautiful cabin. The cabin is beautiful and the location priceless!!!
- Frank and Janine, Posted: 09/28/2017
The excellent location of this home makes it an easy drive to Boone, Banner Elk, and even Blowing Rock (using the back roads), so it’s convenient to trails, restaurants, and shopping. The house is comfortably furnished, and the kitchen is well-stocked. Although the property is dog friendly, you won’t know it! Apparently, the requirement to keep dogs off furniture and beds works well. Our senior Boston Terrier had a wonderful time. We had our own cabin in Watauga County years ago, and Hummingbird Hollow makes us miss being home owners. We’ll be returning here often!
- Leslie, Posted: 01/16/2018
Cozy and private. Loved the wood burning fireplace and privacy. Truly nestled in the mountain woods but close to everything we wanted to do and see!
- Karen, Posted: 03/19/2018
Another fabulous rental through a great company. Returned this year to Hummingbird Hollow, (for the fourth(?) time). A week spent in our favorite spot, enjoying the views, the serenity, the fireplace, the hot tub, and of course, all Boone has to offer! The staff could not be more professional, helpful, and genuine in all respects. Thank you for always providing us with the best of memories!
- Alaina, Posted: 04/23/2018
We recently stayed at Hummingbird Hollow and really enjoyed our stay!! It is in a perfect location. You feel like you're "away from it all" but you're also really close to everything!! We loved the coziness of the cabin and the stocked kitchen! The outdoor living areas were awesome as well. The only thing that really could use some attention is the hot tub. It worked fine but you can tell it's been around for a while. Some of the headrest things had either fallen off or were about to and another piece had broken off as well...not sure what that piece was for but it was on the back porch when we got there. Also, it was a warm evening and we couldn't figure out if there was AC or not. We will probably be back in the fall!!!
- Dustin, Posted: 10/22/2018
Property was amazing, cabin was amazing! The property and cabin were both extremely clean and we'll presented. The check in process was extremely easy and stress free, as well as the staff being beyond friendly and easy to coordinate with. The quality of the stock kitchen items and the furniture throughout was up to date, clean, and comfortable. We have nothing negative to say about the property or the experience. We will definitely return to this cabin in the future. We loved it!
- A.D., Posted: 07/31/2019
My family and I had a wonderful experience at Hummingbird Hollow! Clean, close to Boone and lots of character! All the feel of a secluded cabin with all the modern conveniences. Everyone wants to go back next year! Definitely a great place for a getaway!

Everything was as shown in the pictures and descriptions. Nice cabin!
- Ryan, Posted: 10/17/2019
This was a great cabin. The rental process was smooth and easy. Very secluded property which was a nice break from our home in Charlotte.
- Patricia, Posted: 11/18/2019
Well maintained, clean would loved to have been able to stay longer. All correspondence with agent were prompt and courteous
- Skip, Posted: 11/18/2019
My dog and I spent 5 days at Hummingbird Hollow. It was perfect for some quiet downtime. We enjoyed a cold arctic blast with about 3 inches is snow. Temperatures in single digits made for brisk hikes and beautiful clear nights. The awesome fireplace with plenty of wood was icing on the cake.
- Amber, Posted: 12/03/2019
The house was clean and cozy! We were able to relax in what felt less a rustic mountain environment! We even cooked Thanksgiving dinner at the house and had all we needed for that! It wa sa great getaway!
- Meagan, Posted: 02/26/2020
It snowed on the day of our arrival and left the area looking like a winter wonderland. The house was just as it was described. Because of the central location, we were able to get groceries and go on outings each day. We loved the hot tub and the views it gave. We will be coming back to Hunningbird Hollow in the future.
- Cameron, Posted: 03/11/2020
We had a wonderful time! The cabin was beautiful and clean.
- Dena, Posted: 06/29/2020
The Cabin is really cozy and clean. The wrap around porch is awesome along with the hot tub!
- David, Posted: 06/30/2020
Beautiful log cabin with an amazing stone fireplace/chimney. Very near hiking on a secluded lot.
- Lyndi, Posted: 07/06/2020
My group and I really enjoyed our stay! It's a great location between Boone and Banner Elk so there was lots of options for activities and food. It's close to so much, but is still very secluded and the property is great. The hot tub and fire pit were great! We would definitely stay again.
- William, Posted: 07/27/2020
This cabin is in a great location close to everything. The cabin was clean. The wrap around porch is very nice. Plenty of space to stretch out. The whole family enjoyed our stay!!!
- Anna, Posted: 08/17/2020
My family of 3 as well as our dog enjoyed our stay in this cute cabin. It had plenty of room for all of us. While we did not use the hot tub, my son enjoyed the air hockey table. The house was conveniently located close to Boone and only a short drive to Blowing Rock and Grandfather Mountain. I am rating it 4 rather than 5 stars as the home sits off a busy road and between 2 other driveways that were very busy with cars going up and down during our stay. Car noise can be heard while sitting on the necks but it not noticeable when inside the home.
- Patrick, Posted: 09/03/2020
Our stay was great, the hot tub is very nice and the location is perfect. It is secluded and feels very private but it is super close to all of the great outdoor activities you would want to check out!
- Patrick, Posted: 09/10/2020

- Erika, Posted: 10/29/2020
Great, secluded property that we and our dog enjoyed. It was close enough to places we wanted to go, but far enough that we weren't on top of other people. We loved it.
- Jon, Posted: 11/20/2020
Loved the cabin, had a great vacation here. Very clean and enjoyed the hot tub! Would recommend getting the firewood option!
- Barry, Posted: 01/06/2021
I would certainly recommend Hummingbird Hollow to anyone looking to get away and relax. The huge stone fireplace and the hot tub made for a perfect winter stay. We will be back soon!
- E.G., Posted: 01/21/2021
The cabin felt so cozy and clean. We loved that there was a Christmas tree up. We cooked most of our meals and the kitchen was pretty well stocked.
- Hannah, Posted: 02/02/2021
Wonderful vacation home.
- Matthew, Posted: 02/02/2021
We enjoyed our time here- the house is really private, which was terrific. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals.
- Rose, Posted: 03/24/2021
Hummingbird Hollow was a lovely house to stay at with great amenities such as the hot tub and air hockey table. We loved the open layout of the living room to the upstairs loft. The house itself is located on quite a hill so be prepared for that.
