We vacation every summer in the Boone area for the past seven years with our family. We keep coming back every year because of all the great nature activities we enjoy. We have rented from Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals (BRMR) on several occasion and other cabin rental businesses. In our experience BRMR customer service, professionalism and quality of properties is above all others and has become our primary way to book cabins. Our family of four including kids 12 & 8 years old loved Merrywether Lodge. The accomodations and applicanaces are all updated, the WiFi was very good, the kids loved the 80s style arcade machine, there were three new smart TVs that allowed us to login with our TV Apps (Netflix, Amazon, etc) which was very convenient for family movie nights, the firepit is excellent for smores, jacuzzi was very clean and warm, beds comfortable and the high ceilings gave a grand feel to the cabin. Also there is a very nice desk and TV/monitor setup in one of the bedrooms that was excellent for catching up on work. The only aspect I would point out is that neighbor cabins are pretty close, although it wasn't an issue for us as we never saw anyone or did they disturb us in a way. But if you are looking for a secluded cabin this is not it, again we had no issues with the proximity of neighbors. The location is very convenient with it being close to Boone, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk. Would highly recommend Merrywether Lodge!!

Four of us stayed here 3 nights and really enjoyed our time. The cabin was spotless when we arrived, and everything was set up for us to have a comfortable stay. Two of us had to put in quite a few hours of remote work while at the cabin, and the Wifi was perfect for meetings and constant internet-intensive functions.
We could have stayed here for months with the amenities that were provided, including the full kitchen and extra linens and towels. The view is spectacular on a clear day, and we were within driving distance of every location we wanted to visit, including Linville Falls, Carver's Gap, and Grandfather Mountain.
The fire pit, the gas fireplace, and the hot tub were fantastic for cold weather, and we had no issue operating any of the appliances. The climate control was also perfect.
We highly recommend this cabin for its location and amenities!

Merrywether Lodge was such a nice getaway for me, my husband, mom, and grandmother! The décor is simple but nice, and it feels very homey and fresh. It's so close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, and it took about 15 minutes to get into both Boone and Blowing Rock, which we did every day. We loved relaxing in the hot tub each evening. Will stay again!

This cabin was very clean. Most importantly close to Tweetsie Railroad, food, and shopping. I would highly recommend!

Nestled in a peaceful setting off the Blue Ridge parkway and ideally located between Boone and blowing rock, this home has indoor and outdoor spaces that make for a pleasant vacation. A long covered porch across the front of the house includes a hot tup and has views to an excellent fire pit space below and then across the trees with a hint of a long range view when the leaves are on. Inside the furnishings are upscale and the house is immaculate and gives you the mountain vibe with tongue and groove walls and hardwood floors. I love the way this home is decorated and everything has been thought of for our comfort. I like the open floor plan downstairs. We appreciated that one of the two bedrooms upstairs is set up with a desk and monitor and excellent Wi-Fi if you need to work on vacation as I do. There's a loft space with a video game table and two chairs that make into twin beds and lovely views out of the A-frame windows. I like to find a home that I feel I can come back to a few times a year, and I think this one is it for me.

Excellent experience! Beautifully appointed home and it was spotless. Very attentive and professional management company. Even though we were unable to take advantage of it, we were offered early check-in. We will definitely rent again from Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals. Thank you so much!

If you are planning on visiting the mountains for fall colors be sure and stay at Merrywether Lodge. I was there in August and though the leaves had not started to turn, the area was a lush green with a beautiful fire pit for enjoying s'mores or just a quiet evening under the stars. There is a large porch with plenty of seating to enjoy your morning coffee or your afternoon snacks, or relax in the jacuzzi. The kitchen is fully equipped with an espresso machine or if you prefer a regular coffee maker. There are three beautiful bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Also there is a loft with a great game machine plus a place to do a puzzle or just sit and read a book. The Blue Ridge Parkway is just down the road a short ways plus easy access to Boone and Blowing Rock. It was and is a wonderful place to stay I'm hoping to return soon.

Our family had the loveliest time at Merrywether Lodge! The hosts have thought of every comfort and convenience, from the cozy beds to the personal espresso machine! Our kids especially loved the game table and cool folding beds in the loft. Perhaps our favorite feature was the beautiful stone fire pit area - we spent the most wonderful evening sitting by the fire, roasting marshmallows, and just enjoying the quiet mountains. The location of this cabin is perfect - less than 2 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and the town of Blowing Rock, filled with great restaurants, shops, and plenty of nature to explore! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We can’t wait to come back for a longer stay!
