The Uncle John Cabin was just Beautiful! It's very Cozy, Quiet, Clean and has everything you need in a Home away from Home. Thank you Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals for making this the Best Family Vacation ?

If you want to feel like you are in the mountain woods this is your place. The cabin was filled with lots of things to occupy your time in you don't want to go anywhere. The cabin is almost a mile up hill so in bad weather it could be a rough drive (winter snow/ice). While here we went gem mining, visited ASU, and swam at a waterfall.

The game room and hot tub were a big hit with the family. The cabin was clean and homey. Having towels, linens, and toiletries there when we arrived was also nice.

Booked for a quick weekend trip to get away for a couple days. This cabin was perfect for a peaceful, relaxing vacation! We will definitely book again!!!

Loved Uncle John's Cabin. The house is just beautiful, way better than we expected. Very clean and the kitchen is well appointed. Enjoyed the hot tub while it snowed around us!

The house was clean and lots of fun games for the kids to play. It was in a great location for getting around Boone and surrounding areas. I would stay here again!

Awesome cabin and location. Perfect for our family and had everything we needed. Very clean and it was great to have the game room as well for the kids.

Uncle John's mountain cabin was a pleasure to stay at. We have been staying at cabins in the Boone area for over 30 years And we have certain criteria when we're looking for a cabin. We like to cook in for breakfast and dinner the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals.The bedrooms were spacious and the beds comfortable. Everything was clean which was greatly appreciate it. The gas fireplace it was so easy to just turn the switch And have a fire. Checking in and access to the cabin entrance was great. The game room was an added bonus and we used it every evening and then after some friendly competition we would hit the Jacuzzi we also appreciated The privacy the cabin provided another thing that is tops on our list. Thank you for letting us enjoy you're beautiful cabin it was everything you said it would be an more.

The house was clean and everything worked properly. We enjoyed the rec room in the basement, and the hot tub. Location was very convenient to activities and restaurants while still feeling relatively secluded and quiet. There were a few grassy trails to walk, off the main road around the property. We had a great time!

Great cabin! Very clean!
- Milton, Posted: 08/27/2021
Excellent service provided by a professional and courteous staff. The house was clean and well stocked. The kitchen utensils and televisions were relatively new as were the other appliances. The wireless internet was strong throughout the property. All in all, our experience was very nice although the weather failed to cooperate. Come on Blue Ridge. You couldn't get the weather to cooperate? Seriously though, the recreational equipment in the downstairs "game room" kept my grandkids ( and their highly competitive dad) happy even with the poor weather conditions. A great experience!

Enjoyed the house and especially the basement with the pool table, ping pong table, etc.

Great cabin in a great location!
- Charles, Posted: 06/15/2021
The house is huge and makes you feel nestled in a lush forest. My 4 year old son didn't want to leave the game room's air hockey table. The hot tub and porch were mom and dads medicine.
- Tatjana, Posted: 06/01/2021
Great location close to everything, clean house, and amazing bonus room with numerous fun games for people of all ages. A perfect getaway!
- Meghan, Posted: 04/20/2021
Everything stole our hearts from the moment we walked in. All the way down to the sweet messages from our housekeeper Nicole, and the sweet little Easter Basket with candy—my kids were thrilled. The view from the porch is gorgeous. The house is very well kept, and the kitchen has far more than expected. We did not leave a single time all weekend but to go to the playground at the entrance which is so much fun. My favorite spot was by far the game room. My family, and I could've stayed down there in that room ALL DAY! I just LOVED the spacious basement. The walking trails are NOT for the faint hearted by no means, but fun! Oh & to the host—thank you for your speedy, and caring replies! & the extra towels for the hottub ?

We stayed in a wonderful, well stocked, immaculately kept home. Blue Ridge Rentals was very easy to communicate with from booking through checking out. We had a great time in our cabin!
- Erin, Posted: 03/02/2021
Well managed clean property. Plenty of information and lots of fun activities in the house although leaving.
- Lisa, Posted: 01/26/2021
One of the cleanest cabins we have stayed in. Accurate description, good location. You really need a 4x4 in the winter to access. But we were prepared for that.
- Lorna, Posted: 02/26/2020
Great cabin - our group loved the space, coziness and game room.
- Lesa, Posted: 09/10/2019
We headed from the coast for hurricane Dorian and had a beautiful stay in Boone. We rode horseback, hiked, went to Doc's Gem Mine, and had a wonderful day at Grandfather Mountain. Didn't make it to Rock Dimensions but they are some of the nicest people you will find. Definitely will start there next visit! House was perfect for the kids and dogs. Thank you so much!
- Stephaine, Posted: 08/27/2018
I loved the place, very nice view. Had an amazing time with family and friends. Met a neighbor near by they were so sweet. We will be back next year.

Excellent company. 1st time renters but DEFINITELY not the last time! Cabin was GREAT, clean, warm with better amenities than expected in a rental....was EXACTLY as described!!! Great company to work with!! 5 + stars!!!!
- Julie, Posted: 01/31/2018
Everything about our experience was TOP NOTCH. The cabin was fantastic and there were no disappointments upon arrival, we had a wonderful time! It was just as advertised, clean and a great value for our mini vacation. Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals was not only easy to work with and friendly, they went above and beyond and QUICKLY when one of our daughters left an important medication behind, retrieving it and sending it to us quickly. We will happily rent from them again!
- Rebecca, Posted: 06/16/2017
Absolutely loved our time at Uncle John's Cabin. Kids loved the air hockey, ping pong & pool tables, darts, & bb hoop (indoor). Adults loved the massage chair (master bedroom) & hot tub (on deck). Nestled up in the mountains seems very secluded, but is quite near Tweetsie, Mystery Hill, Mast General Store, etc. Grocery store only 5-10 minutes away. Kitchen well stocked for cooking/baking. Very clean. Agree with other reviewer...pictures don't do it justice...it is lovely. A must stay if you're a family with kids.

We booked a BEAUTIFUL cabin near Boone, NC this past June and absolutely loved it!! I hesitate to mention the specific cabin we rented for fear that all you Yelpers out there will read this review and go and book this hidden gem-and then WE wont be able to return! Ha!! But seriously, if you have a large family, the rental named Uncle Johns Cabin is a winner. With three floors, there is PLENTY of room for everyone. There are three bedrooms in addition to a loft that has a bunk bed. Also, every room has a large plasma flat screen TV along with large flat screen TVs in the family room/den and the game room/basement. Now, about the game room.....this was by far the BEST place for our three boys to hang out. There is a pool table, an air hockey table and a ping pong table. There is also an electronic basketball-shooting game. So cool....SO MUCH TO DO!! The wrap-around deck had us feeling like we were living in a tree house. So beautiful. We LOVED having our morning coffee out on the deck. The cabin is situated on the side of a mountain, but the views are (primarily) accessed from the hiking trail behind the cabin. The trail was a bit overgrown, but our boys made quick work of clearing it so we could access it easier without the thorn bushes. The cabin is just about 10 minutes from Boone, NC. So much to do in Boone....we did a canopy zip line tour on one of our vacation days and loved that. And incidentally we accidentally left our zip drive that had over 120 photos from our zip line canopy tour in the cabins PC computer. Once we realized we had left it behind, we contacted Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals and they were able to get the zip drive from the cabin and mailed it back to us (along with a shirt we left behind-and they laundered the shirt before shipping it!!) And I think it is worth mentioning that there is a golf course at the base of the mountain (three minute drive from cabin) if you enjoy golf. So to wrap this belated review up, the cabin and everyone at Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals were great. We hope to return sometime soon so we can make more memories!!

My family and I traveled from S. Carolina, Georgia and New York and held our first family reunion here the weekend of 9/5-9/8 and it was awesome!!! We thoroughly enjoyed all the cabins that were rented and their amenities. They were in close proximity so it was easy for everyone to visit each other. We definitely had a great time bonding, laughing, and making everlasting memories. One of the cabins had a leak in the bathroom sink but maintenance was contacted and fixed it without hesitation. Ive been to other cabins, but this was the BEST by far!!! - Shameka and the extended Griffin Family 9/5-9/8, 2014 1 Abundant Life, A Positive Outlook, Carolina Charm, and Uncle Johns Cabin

We looked at pictures online but when we got there we were blown away. There were 6 of us (2 teens) and we just couldnt have asked for me. We practically lived down in the gameroom downstairs. I will tell you the pictures dont do this justice. Its warm and homey and super clean and stocked with everything you need. It was also easy to find and located in a great spot. We enjoyed staying here and cant wait to come again.

We wanted a place to stay in the mountains that looked like a cabin on the outside, but contained the amenities of a more modern home. Uncle Toms Cabin exceeded our expections!!! The unfinished basement has lots games including ping pong, pool, basketball (carnival style), air hockey, and lots of board games. There are several large screen Tvs throughout the house. We enjoyed the cabin so much that we only left the cabin to go snow tubing at Sugar Mountain which was about 15-20 minutes away, and to see downtown Boone. If you are looking for a place which is nicely appointed, has a open floorplan, and will keep you entertained while not exploring Boone or the surrounding areas, then this is a great place to go!!!
