We had a great time for our annual mountain trip. Close to Blowing rock and very private!

Very charming property with plenty of room for our friends to stay. Close enough to campus as well to be able to get to the games.
- Eryn, Posted: 06/05/2023
Lovely property in the mountains but still incredibly conveniently located to Blowing Rock and Boone. Spacious home and very clean. Would definitely return!

We had 4 families with kids and this house was great! We had plenty of room, the house was clean, and plenty of storage. Easy check in and check out process.
- Kimberly, Posted: 02/22/2023
The home was clean and ready when we arrived. No issues with the directions and code to the door. The home had everything we needed, especially a hot tub :). We had 9 adults and 3 kids and the home had plenty of space for all of us. I would definitely stay again!

This place was definitely perfect for a big group of friends/family. Very peaceful and the place was all in all perfect. We had a great time and would definitely recommend.

great location, house was super clean, had wifi issues on the first day but they sent a tech out to get it all fixed extremely quickly!
- Gauri, Posted: 10/19/2022
We had a great experience. All our friends said the same. The response to messages was quick and they kept me posted with the messages and the details of how to get in. The house was clean and great
- Gauri, Posted: 10/09/2022
We had a blast in our lovely property! We were visiting from different cities! Some of us were from Florida, Richmond, Chicago, Charlotte, Iowa... Your house was a dream weekend for me, "birthday girl!" (40, but don't feel like I'm above 25!) We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen, the fire pit, and all the small details that make your house cozy. Laughs and love definitely filled your house this weekend, over dinner, games by the fire... It felt like a home away from home to share with others! Do hope to visit again! Thank you!

We spent a weekend celebrating my friend's 40th birthday. The property is beautifully maintained and cozy and inviting. This trip has given us a lot of fun, laughs and beautiful memories to cherish. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Love the personalized gift you left for our friend. We thoroughly enjoyed the streusel bread and fudge. Will definitely be visiting again!
- Gauri, Posted: 10/09/2022
Thank you! We had an amazing time. I think my sister had the best time celebrating her 40th b'day. We had an amazing time. Thank you once again!

This Atlanta family enjoyed a beautiful, comfortable weekend in this PERFECT home! Indeed, we paws-ed for a while and enjoyed every moment! Yes, we'll be back!
- Megan, Posted: 06/19/2022
Our family of 12 stayed here comfortably! The house is large and beautiful. We had everything we needed in the house. They supply all basic necessities you need to get started during your stay. There was ample parking and we loved all of the outdoor space. The house is only a few short minutes from both Boone and Blowing Rock. We had a few small issues with the A/C but the hosts were very fast to respond and help us fix the situation. We couldn't be more pleased with their service. 10/10 recommend this house and rental company.
- The Crump Family and Friends, Posted: 05/10/2022
We want to thank you for our family's amazing weekend - your home was just perfect to help our family from 3 states gather to celebrate a reunion - while our niece/daughter graduated from Appalachian State - so convenient to Boone and all the high country sites. We had plenty of space. The kitchen, hot tub, pool table, fire pit, cozy sofa - it was so money and comfortable to gather and just be our family. We love your big dining table, perfect for meals and games! We especially love your affection for dogs - ours truly would say thank you! Rosie, Bailey, Maggies, and Honey appreciated being with us and we wish we didn't have to leave tomorrow!
- Sandy, Posted: 03/28/2022
House was spacious with many amenities! Enjoyed a celebration with our family and everyone had many things to keep them busy! Communication was immediate and it was appreciated!
- Chadwick, Posted: 03/25/2022
We had an excellent time staying at this property. Plenty of beds and the fire pit area and hot tub were a hit!
- Jessica, Posted: 03/07/2022
GREAT Airbnb for a mountain weekend with friends! We loved being able to bring our pups to this dog-friendly home in the mountains. The Airbnb was clean, spacious, and had an updated kitchen area. You are not able to walk to downtown from this location but do not fear it is just a quick drive away. Definitely recommend!
- KTP, Posted: 03/07/2022
Thank y'all so much for this amazing weekend! The house and the entire property were beautiful! Loved the hot tub as well! It was a ton of fun because the weather was pretty cold. The couches are also incredibly comfortable. Have a great winter season!

- Victor, Posted: 01/03/2022
Thank you the great experience! My family had a wonderful stay. The home was clean and was secluded enough to enjoy privacy. The pit area was a great place to watch the stars at night, make smores and enjoy some outdoor games with the kids! We had a chance to visit the Appalachian Ski resort which was only 8 minutes away. We would definitely recommend this home for any family gathering.

Thank you for this amazing vacation! My dog enjoyed the fire pit area running in the leaves and enjoy the wonderful weather! I loved the bunk beds and the cozy living room. This is a wonderful place! We hope to come back soon!

Time is this worlds biggest thief, and we as a group were robbed of our yearly mountain trip in 2020. Luckily, this year we stumbled upon "Paws A While" to catch up on last time! From the fire pit,k to the hot tub, to the wildlife and everything in between this airbnb is a great microcosm of everything Boone. As we navigate our way to the end of our journey, we are THANKFUL and APPRECIATIVE of the opportunity to Paws A While and catch up on missed time together. If you're ever in Kannapolis, just hit up EL SQUAD, and we will show you around the block. P.S. Cool bear mural.

Thank you for a wonderful, long weekend in your beautiful home. We enjoyed the hot tub and the fire pit.
- Avis, Posted: 10/14/2021
This was my first time renting a mountain cabin and I have to say I was very impressed . The cabin was in a great location and the cabin was clean and beautiful . Well kept . Worth the money . I will be renting from BlueRidge Mountain Rentals again
- Avis, Posted: 10/11/2021
This was an awesome home. Me and my family loved it!! We had a wonderful time. Thank you!
- The Green Family, Posted: 10/03/2021
All 14 of us had a blast @ Paws! We especially loved the deck & and the fire pit. Lots of stuff to do nearby. House is beautiful & perfectly laid out for a big group. 2020 was brutal, so this was a great opportunity in 2021 to all be together. We're from Shelby originally, now Shelby, Charlotte, Asheboro, Shallotte & N. Myrtle Beach. Thanks for letting us Paws A While!
- Audrey, Posted: 09/26/2021
I was a 2020 grad & this cabin allowed my family to get together for my (very) belated commencement! I live in NYC now and coming home to Boone & my family was such a memorable experience. Not to mention our pups (Johnny) Cash and June Carter turned into full on mountain goats! Thanks Paws A While!
- Alison, Posted: 09/21/2021
We enjoyed this house and the large property it is located on. The house was well furnished and clean. The fire pit area was a great place to hang out and has beautiful views. Would recommend this home!
- The Alvis Family and Friends, Posted: 08/01/2021
WE came from 4 locations to spend the weekend together as a family. We opted not to take in much of the local beauty by hiking + swimming. But we spent all 3 days on the lovely deck - just listening to music, playing games + enjoying each others company. Everything was perfect! Couldn't ask for a better quiet retreat. The location was quiet comfy + big enough to have quiet spaces.
- Virginia, Posted: 07/14/2021
First of all, definitely follow the directions they give. GPS tries to take you on the scenic and trespassing route..ha ha! Second of all, you do have to have 4WD. It is a relatively short, but steep gravel driveway. Once you arrive to the freshly painted home, you can see the layout out of the property is brilliant and sets the stage for a private mountain top retreat with family and friends. If you arrive at night, have a flashlight handy because there the outside lights were not left on. The home is equipped with everything you could possibly need. While they give the basics to get started, bring extra trash bags, hand soap, dish soap, dishwasher pods. There is no laundry soap provided. There are extra towels for the hot tub. We were glad we brought firewood, fire starter, and matches. The fire pit area is fantastic! They communicate quickly when there is an issue or question. -- The outdoor motion lights have since been fixed and are in good working order - BRMR 7/28/21

My sister and I have had a great time, all 6 of us. All grandma's. This house is very nice. There was a lot of room, wish we had brought the whole family. There are 8 of us, all named in alphabetical order from A - H. 7 girls and 1 boy. We are from near Wilmington, NC. The housekeepers were very nice too Have a great summer!
- The Udayakumar Family and Friends, Posted: 07/05/2021
Thank you for a great stay for 10 of us from Raleigh, NC and Jacksonville, FL. We had a wonderful time together in the mountains. We especially enjoyed the house and the fire pit - a great view of July 4th fireworks! We look forward to coming back soon.
- Leslie, Posted: 06/25/2021
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Paws for a While! The location is wonderful, close enough to have access to civilization, and secluded enough to be quiet and comfortable both inside and outside. The spacious home allows for a large gathering and is laid out so that different sleeping schedules are afforded( we had 2 young children with opposing nap times). The fire pit has a very comfortable layout for daytime marshmallows and star gazing after dark. I would stay again .
- Carrie and Friends, Posted: 06/25/2021
Friends, thank you so much, our family of 10 had an amazing week here while celebrating a birthday & an anniversary! Our 2 fur babies enjoy the grass and cabin. We played all kinds of games & pool! We got plenty of use of the hot tub & fire pit! We visited Blowing Rock, wet n' wild, and even Carowinds! So much fun for just 1 week. Thank you for the amazing, clean cabin where we made tons of memories!
- John and Friends, Posted: 06/17/2021
We had a wonderful 2 nights here. Six of us old "farts" were cycling the entire length of the parkway from milepost "0" in Waynesboro, VA to milepost 467 in Cherokee, NC. Our stay here was our 1 rest day for the trip, where we are averaging 70 miles per day via bicycle. So we are off again this morning on this epic bucket list. Thanks so much.
- Kathryn, Posted: 05/24/2021
We really enjoyed staying at Paws a While. Plenty of space for my family and friends/children. Super clean and love how close it was to Tweetsie
- Andrea, Posted: 04/19/2021
This house is on a super steep hill, tucked away in the glorious Boone woods. Be prepared for quiet, despite being off the road we throughly enjoyed the sounds of the wind and river close by! The hot tub was a bonus and we enjoyed hanging on the deck every night. We took advantage of this houses location, 30 minutes to Grandfather Moutain, 15 minutes from Boonshine brewery, it truly was a great stay!
- Sandra, Posted: 03/30/2021
My family and I had such a wonderful stay. The house such a great location quiet and peaceful.
- Carolina, Posted: 03/01/2021
What an incredible and beautiful house! we had unforgettable moments. Very close to everything. Really highly recommended. We hope to return there for our ski vacation.
- Michael, Posted: 02/15/2021
Great place with great service!
- J.A., Posted: 02/05/2021
What a great mountain house for us to stay in along with my sister’s family! The 8 of us had ample room in this spacious and cozy mountain house and the kids enjoyed hanging and playing pool in the quiet basement area. The LR and DR were so spacious and cozy with a large comfy couch and large table to eat and play games on. The beds and linens were extremely soft and comfortable and were so nice to come home to after skiing at the Appalachian Mountain which was surprisingly a closer drive than we thought. Downtown Boone was just minutes away so we enjoyed being close by to a grocery store and the restaurants, and even took the teenagers for a drive through tour on App State’s campus.

The best Airbnb experience ever! 5 STAR +++ I can't say enough about this host or the property. We were looking for something that had that mountain feel while being unique. This is it! The huge house slept our entire group in style and comfort. The highlights of our trip (besides all the great food cooked by our tag along chef) had to be sitting on the big deck looking out through the trees and spending time around the fire pit. It's kind of difficult to tell from the photos but the fire pit is actually right out the door. When you walk past the hot tub there is a short driveway, 30 feet or so, going up hill to a huge open grass area with a massive rock fire pit. As we were here during winter we can see the lights twinkling at the ski resort. It was an absolutely amazing spot to sit fire side and sip cocoa... and we may have had some bourbon too. haha. We're going to book the house again in summer just to see the view with the trees full and green. It's like having one of those scenic pull offs like you see on the Blue Ridge Parkway, but in your back yard. Stay here! That's all I have to say.

Super communication, easy check-in, great location, and extremely clean! Thank you for a lovely stay!

The best host and the best AirBNB experience ever!
