Quick trip to Boone. House was clean and had everything we needed.
- Scott, Posted: 03/16/2022
Nice cabin for our families to meet at. Communication was great and check-in was a breeze. Fireplace was nice with the snow and cold weather. Very convenient to Boone and Banner Elk but tucked away for peace and quiet.
- Alexis, Posted: 03/15/2022
Overall my friends and I really enjoyed our stay! The house is close to all major areas like Boone, Blowing Rock, and entertainment. The house is a little difficult to get to in a sedan because the road is a very steep but we made it! The house was beautiful and beds were comfortable.
- Alexis, Posted: 03/09/2022
It was a stunning property with fantastic amenities. Everything worked and everything was discoverable! The hot tub was clean and in excellent condition. The fire pit and fireplace were both great fun and made it even homier. Our students cleaned up after themselves and were very comfortable. The view was lovely and at night, the stars above the hot tub were mystical. Perfect location. Close but not too close. Loved every minute of it and the 8 students (who had never skied except one) said it was the best experience of their lives.

I would recommend this property a thousand times over. For 12 guests, this home felt spacious while giving off the mountain cabin vibe. It was a perfect 11 minute drive to Sugar Mountain Resort as well as 10 minutes in the other direction to the adorable town of Blowing Rock with plenty of restaurants and activities. This property was incredibly clean, exhibited everything listed online, and the manual provided included answers to any question we had. The owner and rental company was also very friendly and easy to get in touch with. Overall this was a great deal and perfect for our winter getaway.

Very nice home with plenty of space and fenced in yard great for kids. Very easy check in and out.
- Jacob, Posted: 01/10/2022
The property was great. The cabin had plenty, and I mean plenty, of room. The bedrooms are all laid out perfectly. We all had a great time. The hot tub was super nice, even in the 9 degree temperatures. Worst part of the whole trip was getting out of the hot tub in single digit temperatures. But overall it was perfect

great house to gather with friends!

Everything was great

We all enjoyed our stay at the Katydid home. The home is well equipped for all cooking needs and fun on the property. We enjoyed a wood fire that was a perfect end to the days out enjoying the cooler temps of the area. We had all the accommodations we could ask for in a mountain home. The property is on a very good location with access to several grocery stores and downtown Boone was not far at all. Our family enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property to others interested in staying in Banner Elk.
- Will, Posted: 12/06/2021
The house is awesome! We really enjoyed staying there and it was very peaceful. Lots of space and a cozy setup. Property management was easy to get into contact with.
- Joelle, Posted: 12/01/2021
Thank you for hosting us! We had a wonderful time in your lovely home, which was equipped with everything we needed. Your cabin is very spacious and so cozy, as well as being close to many activities.

Had a lovely visit for a much needed mom's weekend getaway! The house was great! Spacious, clean and beautiful!!
- Stephanie, Posted: 11/02/2021
The house was perfect - very accessible from Boone and Banner Elk. The home itself was clean and comfortable and the hot tub and fire place were a hit for the whole group.
- Amanda, Posted: 10/26/2021
Smooth check-in process and amazing property for our family getaway. Ample bedrooms, bathrooms, and entertaining spaces for a large group, all immaculately clean and well keptWe loved the multi level porches, fire pit, and the hot tub! Just be careful at night time as the backyard is steep and somewhat dark. We had a wonderful time being secluded away but still close to the many attractions of Boone and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
- John, Posted: 09/28/2021
Would stay here again.
- Rudrangi, Posted: 09/08/2021
We had a great experience at one of the cabins of blue Ridge Mountain Rentals named Katydid. the cabin itself was beautiful and The staff was above and beyond to make our stay was pleasant. We were provided with all the stuffs that we needed on the cabin. I highly recommend Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals and katydid.
- Laurie, Posted: 09/06/2021
We had a wonderful time at their house. Would love to rent again for Thanksgiving.

Was nice place for family vacation
- Abigail, Posted: 07/01/2021
We had a great time staying here! This property is nearby several great locations worth exploring in the Greater Foscoe/Boone area. We loved the scenic views from either porch and the high number of beds could have fit double as many people as were staying there. We will be returning this rental--ASAP!!
- Amanda, Posted: 05/17/2021
Enjoyed our stay! This property is up a steep mountain. Parking is tight.. no more than 2 vehicles. Everything is exactly as described.
- Amanda, Posted: 04/19/2021

Perfect for a family vacation
- S., Posted: 01/26/2021
Our home, Katydid, was perfect for our group of 5. There was so much more space, we could've easily had several more people. Kitchen was well equipped. But the best part was the gas fire pit table on the deck and the backyard fire pit and hot tub. We all enjoyed those amenities. The extra bonus was the fenced in back yard for our dogs. Our service was excellent from the staff as well. I highly recommend.
- Linda, Posted: 01/06/2021
Perfect house for a larger group. Great location close to sugar mountain. Great amenities inside and out.

- Sara, Posted: 07/13/2020
We had a great time! Kids loved the yard and the hot tub. Great to take strolls in the neighborhood. So close to great hiking and restaurants nearby. Loved the upstairs fire pit.

We had been social distancing for nearly 4 months due to COVID-19. A few months back we started interacting with our neighbors and made a pact to keep our outside world contact to a minimum so that we could have human interaction and maintain our social responsibility to our community. This cabin was the first time we had all been outside of our hometown in 4 months. The booking was incredibly easy and the cabin was perfect. We had 3 children around the age of 6. They loved climbing over the rocks and exploring the grounds as well as the nearby waterfall. It rained 2 of the 3 days we were there, but the cabin was perfect. Inside the cabin we were all able to stay on our own floor and congregate for meals and drinks. There was so much space even for 4 adults, 3 kids, and our dogs too! Our experience was amazing and we will definitely make it a point to go back when we can.
- Tanya, Posted: 06/26/2020
Perfect house for a great vacation. Enjoyed the location, deck & fenced in yard.
- Anthony, Posted: 06/24/2020
Really enjoyed the porches. Spent most of our time there outside.
- Kathy, Posted: 06/17/2020
We had the best family Mountain vacation. We will definitely be coming back to same location.
- Sherron, Posted: 06/16/2020
This trip was bittersweet for me and my family. This trip was supposed to be centered around my daughters high school graduation party but that didn't work out at all, which was a total bummer. Now the cabin itself was amazing and was very clean, me and my family got our minds off of the graduation party and we immersed ourselves Into the scenery and the cabin. I wound recommend it to anyone wanting this experience
- Maggie, Posted: 02/04/2020
Beautiful home with lots of room and close to the ski slopes.. We will be back. Thanks for the house..
- Michelle, Posted: 01/03/2020
The cabin couldn't have been better located for skiing at both Sugar and Beech Mountains. The downstairs room was perfect for our five kids to spend time together, but with their own space!
- Wilmer, Posted: 12/30/2019
Great home for a large family trip. Love it!!
- Michelle, Posted: 12/16/2019
We had a great time ! We would definitely rent this house again! It's in a great location and is close to everything! It was beautiful decorated for Christmas!
- Piper, Posted: 09/20/2019
WE WERE A GROUP OF 8 AND THE HOUSE WAS VERY SPACIOUS AND ACCOMMODATING FOR US ALL, WILL HOPE TO RE BOOK THIS PLACE AGAIN FOR OUR WINTER GIRLS TRIP...
- Steven, Posted: 06/17/2019

- Novianti, Posted: 02/21/2019
Very nice and clean cabin and good for large group or big family and pet friendly. We will be back for sure
- The Osbourne Family, Posted: 11/21/2017
If you want to create some memories, Katydid is the place for you! Gather up your family, friends or both because there is plenty of room for everyone. The minute you step into this lovely cabin you get transported to the feel and smell of mountain air. The home is spacious with plenty of room for the kids to have their space and adults, too. It is also big enough to gather around the table for games, go out to the fire pit for roasting marshmallows or sit at the outdoor living area with great views of Grandfather Mountain. Within minutes of your stay, you'll find skiing, hiking, shopping, great dining and a host of activities at nearby Appalachian State University. Don't forget to bring your 4 legged companion who will enjoy a spacious, fenced in backyard. It's guaranteed to be a tail wagging good time!
- The Taylors, Posted: 11/01/2017
It is such a beautiful, warm and inviting house with so many amenities. The porches are nice with one screened for dining outside and one open air with the fireplace. The outside yard fireplace is also nice to sit by and look at the stars. With the house right at Grandfather Mountain the views are great! The house is spacious yet cozy with such comfortable beds and bedrooms. The kitchen is beautiful with all you would need for meals. The cabin is also quite near the many things to do in the area like hiking, restaurants, foliage viewing and App football, which we love. Thank you for letting us enjoy your amazing cabin!
