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

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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 .

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!

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.

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

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!

My family and I had such a wonderful stay. The house such a great location quiet and peaceful.

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.

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.

The best host and the best AirBNB experience ever!
