We cannot thank you enough for the gorgeous cabin and your generous hospitality. It has always been my dream to stay in a log cabin nestled deep in the mountains. I turned 60 this year so I am grateful for this gift. Thank you for giving our family this special time together. Until our return... M,J,J,H AND D

My husband and I along with our three friends graduate from App State in 2017. And, Boone is our favorite place. We were excited to share our favorite place with our two-year-old son. Thank you for allowing us to make these memories here. THE WD & R FAMILY

It was such a pleasure to meet Carole and Forrest (the owners)! Your cabin is as lovely as you are! It certainly exceeded our expectations! Thanks so much for allowing ius to enjoy it. We definitely hope to return. The S'mores were a perfect touch. THE S FAMILY

We absolutely loved this cabin. The sunrises were impressive. The owners have put a lot of TLC into their cabin - Tons of information, centrally located to everything and VERY CLEAN !!! Highly recommend for a group of up to six people.  A FIVE-STAR review. MB

Fully stocked and beautiful cabin at 3800 feet elevation. We were there during the hottest weekend of the summer and stayed comfortable the entire time! This cabin has everything you need/want .SS AND FAMILY 

My wife and I, as well as our kids, and dog, stayed in Alpine Log Cabin for the holiday weekend. Great looking cabin with very rustic charm. Great views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. If you walk up the street a bit, there is an excellent, unobstructed, view of Grandfather Mountain. No need for air conditioning, just leave the windows open at night, as well as early morning, then close them up and the temperature will be just fine. The cabin had all the amenities that we needed! Our dog enjoyed laying on the deck and sometimes staring down the deer that passed through. They paid him no mind by the way. Loved the game room on the bottom level!! We had an air hockey tournament one night (our youngest won) and a Dig Dug tournament the next (Our adult son won that one). Great location close to the Trout Farm, Blowing Rock, Boone, mini golf, Hawksnest, and, of course, the Blue Ridge Parkway. Highly recommended for families or couples. LA and family

Thank you. We enjoyed our stay. Beautiful views. The cabin is close to the Scottish Highland Games at Grandfather Mountain.  JB & family

My husband's brother and two teen sons joined us for the last three days. The game room was well enjoyed! The attention to detail and all of the information easily found made the cabin easy to enjoy and respect. The artwork is beautiful! The S's

Thank you so much for a fun and awesome cabin! We appreciated your attention to details and explicit directions all around this lovely vacation home. We especially enjoyed the jam packed entertainment game room in this cabin. The board games and game room (one of the best ever!) was a family delight! The Pacman arcade game took us grandparents back to our childhood! We did not need a TV! So much to do!! Our three-year old enjoyed the blocks and dominoes. We appreciate you keeping little guests in mind with all you have for them too! This cabin is fun for ALL ages!! Tweetsie Railroad is a family tradition and it continues with our grandsons now. We will surely be back!! Thanks for the fully stocked cabin and soft toilet paper too (HA HA), pamphlets, and books. This cabin is a gem!! The Fs and the Ss (P.S. our three-year old grandson loved the stocked S'mores too)!

We came to see our cousin graduate from App State. What an awesome cabin to stay in! The paintings were beautiful and the game room was incredible. Thank you sooooooo much! The McD family

Wonderful vacation! We traveled from the beach to spend time with our App State children. We played games and watched movies.  Thank you for sharing your home. The K's

What a visit! We all had fun - So much to do and enjoy. That view is breathtaking. We played lots of pool and had so much fun with everything else. The hikes were great. We all want to come back. The D family

WOW! When can we come back? Perfect space - so welcoming and what a view. Amazing family time for dad's 50th birthday. The M's

From the moment we entered the front door, we knew this was our vacation home away from home. This was the best four days our family ever had. Thank you for thinking of everything. I personally set some records on Pacman and Calligula. L (and family)

No one can express the emotions we felt as we opened the door of such an amazing hideaway. As we walked in we were overwhelmed by the small intricate details. We appreciate all the thought and consideration you've placed into a vacation home for strangers. From the random games and allowing our puppy we could not have asked for a more perfect place to spend a family vacation. The W family

Thank you for making this amazing cabin and allowing us to come here. The Z's

We enjoyed the cabin with games, game room, and fireplace. It had everything we needed to enjoy a mountain escape. The S's

We enjoyed our stay at Alpine Log Cabin and exploring the mountains. Our four-year-old son loved all the games in the game room. The paintings are stunning. Thank you for sharing your home with us. The N's

No words to describe our stay here in your cabin. Very comfortable and cozy. We are in love with this cabin. E,J,E,R

This is the second year in a row that we have been to Alpine Log Cabin and it is nothing short of fabulous! The Byrons make the cabin so comfortable. We feel right at home. We enjoy skiing at Sugar Mountain and we also did a horseback ride which was fantastic. We always go to Grandfather Mountain to see the animals. They have a newly-remodeled theater and interactive wilderness exhibit for the kids. Highly recommend. Trout fishinng is a must. Lots of great restaurants nearby. Our favorites are Gamekeepers and Stonewalls. This is the perfect cabin. We can't wait to come back year aafter year. The K family

We stayed for our wedding anniversary. The game room was a fun addition to the trip and we spent hours playing cards and darts, etc. We are already planning our return to go skiing! Also enjoyed the beautiful artwork. We love that they were painted by the owner. The C's

(written by a 9-year old girl) - I really enjoyed staying at Alpine Log Cabin. The rooms are very cozy and the views from the deck are extraordinary. The cabin is inbetween literally everything from Valle Crucis to Boone. The vibe is homey and decorations are adorable. The paintings add so much to the room. Everything about this cabin is excellent! Thank you Carole and Forrest for providing the perfect setting for our family's Thanksgiving in the mountains. We had a wonderful time with trips to Grandfather Mountain, Boone, and got a Christmas tree at a tree farm in Valle Crucis. Best of all was the memories made, time well spent at being together. The N's daughter!!

We had a wonderful weekend celebrating a birthday in your beautiful cabin. It was the perfect place for us. Thank you for all the thoughtful touches and the  helpfull recommendations that made the weekend unforgettable.  We can't wait to return. Best wishes The BR family

Thanks for a beautiful week at your cabin. It always feels like home! We enjoyed gem mining at Sugar Creek in Banner Elk and the rollercoaster. Hiking is a plus - Our favorite trail is Linville Falls. We are thankful for all the special touches you provide. The artwork is exceptionall. I cannot forget our competition at the air hockey table - always lots of fun. We look forward to our next visit to our "home away from home". The R family

We had a wonderful stay! It was perfect! The boys had fun in the game room and mommy enjoyed the peaceful view of the mountains while drining coffee upstairs in the chaise lounge. Everything was clean and we had just what we needed! Absolutely we will be staying again. Enjoyed all the beautiful artwork throughout. The G family

We enjoyed our stay at Alpine Log Cabin for our weekend getaway.  The cabin was perfect - Clean, beautiful views and a bonus was our visitors (deer) who loved to stay close to the apple tree. We enjoyed watching them play. We will be back. The B's

This property is terrific! Veriy comfortable. Absolutely stunning views from the deck. Kitchen just fine for a holiday. Considerate hosts with excellent instructions. Thank you!! WN & family

We really found a gem here! Alpine Log Cabin was in immaculate condition - clean, well-furnished, and had all the comforts of home (So thankful we could even bring our dog). The view was amazing, the cabin was comfortable, and the game room was a great bonus when we had down time.  The owners were responsive and easy to communicate with - you could tell each renter was considered as important as the next. Definitely would recommend. The DM family

Clean, comfortable, and well located. We had a great time here.  And the kids loved the game room. Enjoyed Carole's paintings as well. The EL family

We just wanted to let you know that we had the most fun-family time at Alpine Log Cabin.

The owners have thought of everything. We had so much fun playing in the game room. Can't wait to come back!! LM AND fAMILY

My kids loved this vacation cabin home which is a huge win! We enjoyed the morning sunrise over the mountains and easy access to Boone, Blowing Rock, and Banner Elk. Great game selection to keep the kids busy. They also enjoyed making S'mores at the fire bowl. We really appreciate homes that have 2 bedrooms on the main level so we don't have to worry about the stairs with the kids and they feel safe with us in the next bedroom. Definitely would recommend! Thanks for a great stay! JL & family

FIVE STARS! Great place to stay. Neat, Clean, and a Wonderful Atmosphere. Loved it!!!! RB & family

A great experience at Alpine Log Cabin. The cabin was arranged very nicely and was Clean! The kids loved all the games and fun things to do. The signs and directions around the cabin are great too. And the view off the back deck was awesome! CS AND CHILDREN

Brought my partner, three friends, a toddler, and a pooch. Every single person was comfortable and the cabin was gorgeous. Easy instructions for everything and nothing was left to question. Great communications with the hosts as well. Five-Stars and would stay again. The B Y family

FIVE-STARS! Clean, welcoming, and well-appointed cabin convenient to many activities. We loved being so close to Hawksnest snow tubing. It has everything you and your family need for a comfortable stay. the hosts were very responsive and went out of their way to get a minor issue with the fireplace fixes so that we could enjoy it for our visit. Great Rental!! The M E FAMILY

Your cabin was absolutely perfect! There are no adjectives to describe it. Our grandchildren's only complaint was that our trip was way too short!! We will come back when we have more time. Thank you for allowing us to stay at Alpine Log Cabin.  We loved it !!! AB and FAMILY

Fantastic, well appointed cabin in a great location. Owners communicate well.  Would stay again. JW AND FAMILY

We had a great stay at Alpine Log Cabin. It's situated on a beautiful lot with easy access and a great location from which to easily get to Boone, Valle Crucis, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk and more. Things we especially loved- The Game Room is an amazing and unique feature. - The cabin is very comfortable and well laid out; the great room furniture and the easy-to-use fireplace were fantastic. There were amazing views from the dining area, kitchen, and two bedrooms - Incredibly well stocked kitchen. Property owners who really care!! Carole and Forrest were communicative and helpful during the entire process. And when we ran into an issue with a kitchen appliance (the microwave decided not to work), it was replaced within hours with a brand new one by a licensed electrician and in a way that fit our schedule so we didn't miss a beat. We loved being able to bring our dog. And really enjoyed waking up to the wide and well-paved main road for morning and evening strolls to exercise our dog. We saw deer on each morning walk. Things to know - There is ampul parking at the cabin and the stairs down to it from the parking area are in great shape making loading in and out a breeze. It is well worth the slightly windy climb up from NC-105 to see the great private views from the cabin that is only a fifteen-minute drive from Boone. The Alpine Log Cabin feels close to everything. If you are looking for a comfortable, cozy place to enjoy the views - this is it! If you are looking for a fun, family-friendly base from which to explore the high country - this is also it!! We loved Alpine Log Cabin and will be back. THE JB FAMILY

FIVE-STARS! The process was very smooth and straightforward.  Carole was an excellent communicator, and we knew exactly what to expect! JN and family

Alpine Log Cabin is amazing and has everything you would need. The views and hosts are awesome! Alpine Log cabin was everything we expected and more!! The kitchen has everything you would ever need and then some! There is a wonderful fireplace and plenty of games for all ages! We woke to an amazing sunrise and the first snow flurries of the season. We will definitely be back! GA AND FAMILY

Everything was wonderful and just what we needed.  Clean, well-stocked and a great spot to stay while visiting other nearby locations THE JG family

I really enjoyed my stay in Alpine Log Cabin this weekend. It's clear a lot of work was done to make it feel like home. I especially liked the handmade items including all the original pieces of artwork throughout. Thanks. NS

While here we went to Silver Vale Falls in Blowing Rock - GPS will take you there. We will be back and tell our friends about it  The Os

We had a wonderful time here! The cabin is decorated so beautifully and unique. We love Mrs. Byron's paintings! The views are spectacular. The beds and couch are very comfortable. You have a great selection of games. Our dog enjoyed her walks in the neighborhood and meeting people and dogs. The fresh air was wonderful! Being able to relax and get away from it all was therapeutic for all of us. Thank you for having such a lovely place for folks to vacation to. The L family

My husband, I, and our three kids spent four glorious days at Alpine Log Cabin. The owners send you an email prior to your arrival with all the information you need; including directions, what the cabin has, what you need to bring, and much more. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need except food, including spices, cooking oils, powdered creamer, sugar, sweeteners, and more.  There is also a little setup with coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and the ingredients to make S'mores. There are labels throughout the cabin to help you (like which light switch works which lights).  There are ring binders with info about the cabin and surrounding areas.  The drive to the cabin from the main road is paved and easy to access. We loved the Game Room.  There are two arcade machines with several games on each one. There is a pool table, air hockey table, foosball, and poker table. There are also magnetic darts, cornhole, bowling, and too many board and card games to list here. The view off the back deck is spectacular! The cabin is close to Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk and Grandfather Mountain. We ventured out everyday and visited Tweetsie Railroad, Mystery Hill, the Alpine Coaster, and Mast General Store. This is an amazing cabin with great owners, and we look forward to staying here again! AH and family

Love your cabin! So much attention to comfort and detail. The view out back is spectacular. We'll definitely rent again! Thanks. V and M

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your gorgeous cabin. Carole's paintings are amazing. We especially love the one with the purple and orange skies in the main floor bedroom. What a beautiful home!! We will miss the mountain view from your back deck. The D Cs

Alpine Log Cabin is simply AMAZING! It was warm and welcoming. Everything in the cabin was impeccably organized and clean. The instruction manuals, travel guides, and pamphlets were especially helpful since we had never ventured to this area of the North Carolina mountains before. The numerous paintings throughout the cabin added a welcoming feeling - not to mention they are absolutely beautiful!. What a wonderful talent to possess! We spent most of our daylight hours sightseeing and still didn't begin to visit all of the places that we wanted to see.  The beautiful sunrises on the back deck with a hot cup of coffee got each morning started with an awesome attitude and promise. On rainiy evenings the peace and tranquility of the cabin front porch listening to the patter of the raindrops put us all in a cheerful and relaxing mood. We even saw a deer standing next to our truck on the driveway! The cabin is absolutely gorgeous and not a stone was left unturned in making sure your guests feel welcome. Thanks so much for allowing us to stay and we hope to visit again in the future. The Ys

Our visit was absolutely delightful. The cabin was very clean. Porchs and chairs were so nice. The cabin was well stocked. Very organized with labels and instructions. We had a lovely time. The H family

Our second stay at Alpine Log Cabin - again beaiutiful - Great time. Enjoyed the game room, the deer, the peace and tranquilitiy. We even gave out a card and brochure to hikers renting at Hawksnest condo and who were asking about this cabin - They were quite impressed with just the outside and haven' even seen the inside. Really enjoyed our visit and will continue to tell others about it. The As

Your cabin is beautiful.  Everything was so well stocked, and directions were very helpful. The time spent preparing the cabin for guests truly creates a "home away from home" atmosphere. The morning sunrises were wonderful. The live music concert we attended, and sense of a welcoming community was wonderful! Thank you for the experience. The M Family

The cabin was well stocked and safe for babies. The owners even tape to fix a toy. We had a wonderful time staying here.  Beautiful cabin and lots of games and fun times. Thank you. The Cs

This cabin has it all! Clean, Organized, Everything you need, Comfortable, Close to all the fun things. VS & FAMILY

This is a super place to stay and the Byrons are awesome hosts.  The cabin is immaculate with a beautiful view from the back deck. Plenty of room for people and pets. And all the amenities you could ask for, including the downstairs game room - great for teens and other game players.  The information provided was so thorough and detailed that it was easy to settle in and just start enjoying the relaxing stay in the beautiful North Carolina mountains. I don't know how Carole and Forrest could make it any easier.  The thoughtful extras like hot chocolate and the makings for S'mores were unexpected and appreciated. We stayed for a week and enjoyed every day. We greatly recommend this property if you are coming to the Boone area. TM AND FAMILY

On a passe' un bon sejour merci!. Parfait'!  We had a wonderful weekend - Thank you. We are here visiting the mountains with my father-in-law from France.  We all loved the cabin, the view, and the games. M, FABIAN, AND JEAN-ROBERT

(Owner's note:  This was written by a young child staying with their parents at the cabin).  My favorite thing is the game room that is the most best thing in the mountain house. I liked the 3 bedrooms and the bathrooms.  I loved the roller coasters sled in Banner Elk. They are fast and high. CT Junior 

This cabin was our favorite. It was safe for baby and fully equipped. It even had scotch tape to fix a toy. We had a wonderful time staying here. Beautiful cabin with lots of games and fun stuff to do. The C's

Five of us guys came up for a weekend of golf.  We really enjoyed all the amenities and the game room. The directions for the games were very handy. Great front porch and deck.  This place is perfect! We hope to be back again next year. P.S. - Our favorite painting was "Country Road".  J, B, K, M, and  J

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Alpine Log Cabin and the artwork throughout the cabin. You covered all the bases. We wanted for nothing. See y'all in November. B and L  F

So much fun visiting our parents at Alpine Log Cabin!  Lots of memories made especially with our 10-year-old dog Leo.  Morning views were so worth early morning wakeups. Thank you. S,L, and L

We had a lovely time staying at your cabin. We were especially excited to see all the attention given to trail maps and other activities. Our favorite thing to do is seek out new waterfalls and was so happy Otter Falls was just down the street! We can't wait to see it in the Summer. Also, as an added bonus to the trip we were able to see our team beat Duke-Yea! J,S,F, AND T

We checked in for a Freshman orientation at Appalachian State University for our son.  What an amazing and wonderful weekend at Alpine Log Cabin! Can't wait to visit again!! The M family

What a treasure Alpine Log Cabin is! We loved all the special touches, the clear directions for everything, the beautiful artwork, and amazing Views. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us. We look forward to visiting again. The S family

Your cabin is super cozy! Before we moved to North Carolina we lived in Germany.  Your cabin reminded us of our time there.  Thanks for a great stay and great time!! The M's

We came to the area to tour App State University for our daughter. We've stayed at Alpine Log Cabin before and knew it would be a great home base for this visit too. Great location, wonderful views, and all the comforts of home.  The K's

Thank you Carole and Forrest for sharing your beautiful cabin. We were blessed with 8 inches of snow our first night here. We had an amazing day of skiing at Sugar Mountain. Favorite things: large family room with fireplace was so cozy.  The beautiful paintings in every room make the cabin feel like an art gallery. The game room was amazing! As was the selection of board games (Shut the Box board game was our new favorite). All the decorations were amazing touches. And the extra blankets in the bedrooms were wonderful. We felt very much at home and sad that we had to leave so soon.  We'll definitely tell our friends about this amazing place and will plan to stay here again. The E's family

We really enjoyed our winter vacation here in the cabin. The cabin had everything we needed. We played lots of games and enjoyed the pool table. It was so nice being so close to the slopes. The L family

We had a wonderful vacation with family.  Everything was perfect. And the kids had a great time! Ice skating, trout fishing, and gem mining were a hit. Looking forward to coming back next year for our family tradition. Thank you. The S family

My husband surprised me with this little getaway for my birthday. The moment we walked in, I was blown away. What a beautiful cozy cabin. We had never been to this area before so your brochure rack in the hall was very useful. What a thoughtful addition. We adventured in Boone and Blowing Rock during the day and night played board games. Honestly the BEST TRIP EVER!! Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven!  The S's family

This was our second stay at Alpine Log Cabin and it felt like coming home again.  We enjoyed Gem Mining at Sugar Creek Gem Mine in Banner Elk and Dunn's Cafe was delicious. Another restaurant was The Cardinal and Daniel Boone Inn. Daniel Boone has great home cooking and the Cardinal had lots of fresh produce - It was our favorite. Of course the views while hiking the Otter Falls Trail and the Profile Access Trail at Grandfather Mountain State Park were spectacular!! We are already planning our third trip here. The R's

We enjoyed staying at your beautiful cabin - Wish we could have stayed longer. Really enjoyed the hospitality that was provided. We would recommend to anyone who wants a peaceful getaway. The I's

Beautiful cabin!! Thanks for maintaining it in pristine condition !!! The H family

We had a wonderful time. The cabin was far better than any we've ever stayed in. We would recommend this cabin to anyone! AN

Beautiful cabin and we enjoyed all the mountain views. Thanks for maintaining the cabin in pristine condition. The H family

The BEST place to stay! Had a great time. Carole (the owner) thought of everything.  All you had to do was purchase food. This cabin is definitely the place to stay when visiting the Boone area. Everything was perfect.  Thank you! MA & FAMILY

If you are going anywhere near Boone, NC choose this rental!!  The cabin was beautiful, the view was gorgeous, and everything you might need was provided.  Carole was quick to respond and provided great information about the cabin, attractions, restaurants, and shopping nearby.  Our only regret was that we didn't book a longer stay! ES and Family

We loved the welcoming and homey feeling we got staying at Alpine Log Cabin.  Such a beautiful view and beautiful cabin.  We visited Boone on Sunday and ate at the Peddl'in Pig.  Beautiful scenery and great food.  Monday we visited Blowing Rock and ate at Sunny Rock for breakfast. Delicious.  Went downtown.  So much fun. Ended our day going to Grandfather Mountain which was an absolutely breathtaking view.  We saw a beautiful deer by the cabin as we came home to the cabin.  We will be coming back and enjoying this amazing experience again. Thank you for sharing this amazing cabin. Beautiful weather and beautiful artwork.  We loved it. TT, DT,DM, and RM.  

The cabin was in a beautiful location.  We enjoyed our stay and enjoyed exploring the area. We saw deer through the cabin windows and even retrieved a few apples from the tree nearby.  We had everything we could ask for on our stay and will be coming back in the future. Thanks for the opportunity to get away for a little bit. BK & CM

We enjoyed the lovely sunrises in the morning.  Such a beautiful place to stay.  You have made it so hospitable and welcoming. We had a wonderful experience seeing the deer through the window by the TV.  I was personally inspired to start painting now that I am retired.  Loved your paintings! CB

This has been a wonderful experience - lovely cabin and breathtaking view. Thanks. P.S. we finally learned to ski!!! The O's family

Home away from home. This was exactly as described and more! The hosts provided everything we needed and the stay was very well thought out.  The cabin was spotless and there were games galore for the tweens to enjoy. We enjoyed admiring Carole's artwork throughout the cabin.  It was a welcome surprise to see so much snow left to play with.  There was no shortage of information provided.  From S'Mores to hot chocolate to games we could have been just happy chilling here all day.  Very close to Banner Elk, Blowing Rock, and ski areas.  We'd love to stay here again.  This is our favorite AirBnb experience yet.  RB

Our family had a great time at Alpine Log Cabin!  My three year old son especially enjoyed the arcade games and all the other fun games in the game room.  We also enjoyed the painting scattered all throughout the cabin!  It rained on us the first day here so we went to Mast General Store in Boone.  Lots of fun stuff to look at for adults and kids.  We ate lunch at "Our Daily Bread" across the street from the store.  WOW!  Their food was delicious!  On our way back to the cabin, we stopped by the "Incredible Toy Company".  My son thought he died and went to heaven!  It was nice to have such a huge selection of toys and to support a local business.  Saturday we headed to Tweetsie hoping the rain would hold off and it did!  We had a great time riding the train.   The I's family

I have always wanted to stay in a cabin.  Our experience here was beyond expectations. Just chill'in out, to playing pool, we had a relaxing time.  We especially enjoyed the numerous deer sightings, including the young buck growing his antlers to the mama with two babies!  Also loved the paintings and autumn decorations.  Thank you for our stay! J & S

As the sign by the door says, this cabin is truly a Stress-Free Zone. You get that sense as soon as you step inside and it doubles when you see the view from the deck.  If you have stress while you are there, you really need to re-evaluate!  This is a very professionally run property with the best communication we've ever had from any other properties we've rented.  We definitely feel like we got our money's worth and it is a real value considering today's accommodations' costs. You'll also love the serenity of the Seven Devils community. RELAX AND ENJOY! RD and family

Awesome Getaway!  Beautiful cabin with lots of character and excellent views! It is truly a home away from home - Clean, well-kept, family friendly! Convenient location, lots of local things to do! Highly recommend this place. MF AND FAMILY

 The area is wonderful with so much to see. We especially enjoyed our trips to Grandfather Mountain and Linville Falls. The Ws

Your cabin is amazing! We've stayed in three other cabins, and yours is the best by far!  We loved the game room most of all.  We enjoyed the area, the scenery, and the deer. You provided every little thing.  We'll definitely be back. Best vacation yet! Thank you! MA and family.

As you approach the front door, you will see a sign which says "Stress Free Zone". A happy way to start your vacation! The view of the mountains from the back deck is wonderful and peaceful.  The cabin is well appointed and the owners have plenty of information about the cabin and the surrounding area. A five star review! The VA family

Five-stars! Clean, comfortable cabin in gorgeous area with plenty of space for our family. Close to many great outdoor activities. JW AND FAMILY

Awesome getaway!! Beautiful cabin with lots of character and excellent views! It is truly a home away from home, clean, well-kept, family friendly! Convenient location, lots of things to do! Highly recommend this place! MF AND FAMILY

We just want to reiterate what a wonderful cabin you have.  We saw a baby deer and its mama when we first arrived.  The view from the back deck was impressive. The whole family enjoyed the game room.  There was nothing you overlooked.  The location was perfect.  We went white water rafting, fished, and rode the Alpine Coaster in Banner Elk. We enjoyed dinner out at various restaurants.  We had a blast!! We'll definitely be back! S & S A and family.

A peaceful retreat! Clean and cozy cabin stocked with everything you need to have a relaxing mountain getaway. Well-stocked kitchen. Beautiful view from deck. Close to everything. You won't be disappointed! AO and family

What an amazing place! Thanks for the opportunity!! O and B  R

We came here for a family vacation to enjoy the peace and quiet of the mountains! Alpine Log Cabin did not disappoint!! The cabin is so well equipped. Carole and Forrest answered all of our questions. Everything was labeled so neatly I really didn't need to ask. The children loved the game room.  We spent Friday evening playing multiple games!  (We loved the pool table and air hockey. We will definitely be back to this wonderful little piece of Heaven on Earth!! The R family: M,M,K,& A

We had a terrific time this week. We slept late and would sightsee in the mountains until 4pm. We returned to the cabin and had movie nights. We also had a great hike to Otter Falls. Thanks. The DV family

We really enjoyed this quiet nest to return to between other busy ASU weekend activities.  Thanks for all your efforts to meet the needs of short-term visitors.  Hope you have a great summer. And as an artist and collector of self-taught art, I really enjoyed the paintings. Thank you, Carole, for sharing them with us as visitors! The CA FAMILY AND WF

The G's family from Chapel Hill, NC had a great time with our family.  And the view is great! 5 out of 5 stars. The G family

The Alpine Log Cabin was a joy to stay in.  Our family enjoyed the views and quality time together.  We will definitely be back. The C family

We really enjoyed our stay at Alpine Log Cabin.  The owners have thought of everything...and more!  The view from the deck is absolutely amazing and the location is super convenient.  We all had so much fun playing together in the basement game room and making S'Mores and pan popcorn around the outdoor firebowl.  Otter Falls is so close and very beautiful! We hope to return soon.  Thank you, Carole and Forrest, for sharing your fabulous home.  EL and family

PERFECT quick getaway for our entire family.  Well-equipped, great communication, dog friendly, and close to everything we wanted to do!  Thank you so much for a memorable trip. ZR and FAMILY

We had a great time for the second time! Thank you!! THE B FAMILY

My husband and I along with our teenage boys stayed at Alpine Log Cabin for the week.  We had such an awesome vacation!  We were close to everything....Grandfather Mountain, Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk, etc.  We were able to cook in the fully stocked kitchen, as well as visit local restaurants. Forrest and Carole were so welcoming and had everything labeled and orderly.  It you want to get away and relax to enjoy some quality time, this is the place!  My family and I highly recommend this cabin and the awesome location. AMT & FAMILY  

This was a much needed last minute getaway with our kids.  Carole and Forrest were so accommodating. The cabin was everything we were looking for and was so cozy yet open and airy. It had beautiful vaulted ceilings in the family room. Great location and only 2 miles from Hawksnest zipline and snow tubing which was one of the main reasons we went. Carole and Forrest were so thoughful when we told them we were going to Hawksnest to let us know to buy our tickets in advance online so we didn't lose out since Hawksnest sells out fairly quickly. They have truly thought of everything you need in their cabin and there is information or the answer you need for everything. The game room was a lot of fun as well with a pool table, air hockey, dart board, beanbag toss, foosball, and tons of board games which we took advantage of as much as possible in the short time we were there.  The back deck has stunning long range mountain views and we saw so many deer.  Another amazing touch is that if you look closely you will see a lot of the artwork has been painted by Carole herself and they are such beautiful paintings. CT and Family 

Another Five Star Review.  We took a trip to North Carolina for a family trip and rented the Alpine Log Cabin. The cabin is centrally located to everything we wanted to do while there in the Boone/Banner Elk area and had no problem driving to/from the cabin.  The best part of the cabin, based on other cabins we've rented over the years, are the views. Absolutely breathtaking to watch the sunrise over the mountains as we sat on the back deck and drank morning coffee. The cabin also has amble games for families and kids to play so there was no shortage or downtime. Overall, this was an excellent vacation and we will keep Alpine Log Cabin on our short list of places to rent if we ever return to the area. DC and Family

Thank you for sharing your little piece of North Carolina paradise with us. Your cabin is so well stocked with the essentials that we left much of what we brought in the car (good to know for next time). You have thought of everything to provide your guests with a wonerful stay. Even a cappuccino frother! Wow.  Whether folks just want to relax on the deck, play games, or explore the surrounding area, you've got it covered.  Thanks for being so attentive during our stay and we hope to see you again. G & V  

Thank you so much for having us. We enjoyed skiing & snowboarding at Sugar mountain.  Then coming back to this warm, cozy cabin to spend quality family time together.  We all loved the view and we loved bringing our four-legged family members.  Thank you! The Ds

The cabin was spectacular! The views are astounding! The owners go out of their way to make sure you have everything you could imagine for your stay and make you feel welcome the moment you book your stay. They truly have thought of everything! The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you would need for your stay. They even have an assortment of current magazines, books, and games for the whole family! Our family especially enjoyed the game room downstairs with an air hockey table, pool table, darts, and more! We also enjoyed the firebowl and watching the family of deer that appeared almost daily right next to the cabin.  As soon as we walked in the door, we felt our stress melt away! Alpine Log Cabin is truly a home away from home thanks to Carole and Forrest. A five-star review. A B and Family

This cabin stay was more than we expected and we can't wait to return!! the location and setting is ideal: quiet, clean, cozy, and the perfect place to relax. We celebrated my husbands birthday and while we were having coffee on the back deck 2 does and 3 fawns came to visit.  We woke up to a stunning sunrise and view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. IW AND FAMILY

We have really enjoyed our stay here at your cabin. It was clean and nice and decorated so beautifully. We also enjoyed watching the deer. It rained on Thursday so we stayed in and enjoyed the game room.  Carole's artwork is very beautiful and she is super talented. The view is breathtaking.  God paints beautiful sunrises and sunsets. C,H,B,and K family

My children and I loved the cabin and all it had to offer.  The game room was a huge hit.  The cabin was very clean and the owners have literally thought of everything you may need. MR and Family

Carole and Forrest: Thank you for a beautiful stay in the High Country. Our first journey out in many months made this a special getaway. We loved the quiet, the views, and how clean the cabin was. We'll be back! C & M  K + A

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful cabin! the 5 of us who stayed had a wonderful time.  We had so much fun playing pool and air hockey and hanging out on the couch on a rainy day.  It was so nice waking up to that gorgeous view every morning and we even saw a family of deer nearby.  I can't imagine a cozier cabin and I hope we will get to come and visit again. P.S. We love the moose on top of the kitchen cabinets. The N family

Well-stocked cabin with great extras. We had a wonderful time at Alpine Log Cabin. Carole and Forrest were very responsive and informative hosts. The cabin has great views and tons of amenities!  The game room downstairs was a hit with my kids, especially on a rainy day. We had fun with the firebowl making S'mores, and Jiffy popcorn.  Otter Falls nearby was a treat. This cabin was top notch! K C

This was the second time we have been here and it was just as good as the first.  It had amazing views and a fun game room. The H's 

The cabin was super clean and just as described.The hosts were great to work with and right on top of all necessary communications. Our only regret is not being able to stay longer. The TM family

The H's thoroughly enjoyed our stay...beautiful cabin with breathtaking view with Grandfather Mountain, Gem mining, S'mores, Zip Lining, and relaxing on the deck.  Thank you!! The H family

Another Five-Star Review. Carole and Forrest were quick to respond to various questions prior to and during our stay.  Customer service is number 1 as evidenced by their attention to detail. JW and family

FROM JACOB (SON): I like the game room because it has awesome games.

This ended up being the perfect place to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. We loved the high country and the gorgeous log cabin! Quiet, cozy, clean and waking up to a stunning sunrise! We also saw does and fawns.  We can't wait to return. I, S, R, & S

This is a terrific family-friendly place to get away. We felt very comfortable given how clean and sanitary the cabin was when we arrived. With tons of games, a wall full of brochures and maps for outside activities and the great views it was perfect in the time of "social distancing".  The owners were very responsive to anything that came up.  Highly recommend!! RS and Family

Clean and Cozy Five-Star review. This was a very nice cabin with lovely views and VERY CLEAN.  Helpful owners and a wonderful stay overall.  NN

Perfect location and seamless check-in process. This is a great cabin perfectly situated around Boone, Blowing Rock, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We'll be back for sure! The LW family

Awesome Cabin!!! We truly enjoyed Alpine Log Cabin. It had everything we could want and then some, from all the games, game tables, to all the spices in the kitchen. The beds were so comfortable we all agreed we had some of the best sleep we've had in a while. We highly recommend this cabin!! You don't even need to leave the cabin if you don't want to. LW and family.

We love the mountains and this trip was no exception.  Your cabin is lovely and we appreciated how well stocked it is.  This was our first trip with our rescue dog and we learned that she loves to hike. We hiked Rough Ridge Lookout, part of the Tanawha trail and saw Hebron Falls. Thank you for a great getaway...and the view from your cabin deck is amazing! The M family 

Thank you for sharing your great cabin with us. We loved the beautiful sunrises from the back deck. The boys loved the air hockey downstairs. We enjoyed the hike to Otter Falls. Fortunately there were plenty of flowers. We loved seeing the deer as they walked by the back of the cabin and along the road. We appreciated the well-stocked kitchen with so many appliances and utensils. The deck was wonderful with plenty of gas for grill. P,S,K,and R 

Your wonderful cabin was just what we needed to relax. It is definitely a "Stress-Free Zone"! You both have thought of everything a guest might need to make our stay feel like a home away from home! Many air hockey tournaments. We also loved sitting on the deck and soaking up the breathtaking mountain views. We also took turns enjoying the reading nook upstairs. The kids enjoyed making S'Mores and Jiffy Pop by the firebowl. We always looked forward to our evening walks through the neighborhood. One thing we will never forget is watching our deer family "neighbors". It was fascinating to watch the mama with her three babies so close to the cabin.  Many memories were made here and we can't wait to come back again. The B family-J,A,A,A

Thank you again so much for letting us stay at Alpine Log Cabin. It was just what we needed to de-stress. Our 14 year old son said he was really going to miss the cabin and our 10 year old daughter said that it "feels like home here". Very high praises coming from a teenager and pre-teen! My husband and I didn't want to leave either! It was even better than we expected! J, A,A, and A

Alpine Log Cabin was spectacular!  The views are astounding!

Alpine Log Cabin is truly a home away from home thanks to Carole and Forrest THE B FAMILY

We had a BLAST at Alpine Log Cabin!  Our week away brought much needed relaxation, aided by the wonderful mountain views off the back deck, S'mores by the firebowl, and walks up and down the road.  And such a wonderful collection of games downstairs and guides for hikes and local activities. Thank you so much for your hospitality and the artwork throughout the cabin!  The S's and U's

What a darling log cabin with great views! Our daughter loved the firebowl and making S'mores after competitive air hockey and darts.  We loved the cooler temperatures and sleeping with the windows open at night. Thank you! AC AND CM

We loved our visit. It was fun and enjoyable!! This was our THIRD visit and we weren't at all disappointed.  THANK YOU!! B&K S AND THE KIDS

This is a Five Star cabin. This is a terrific, family-friendly place to get away.  We felt very comfortable given how clean the cabin was when we arrived.  With tons of games, a wall full of brochures, maps for outside activities, and great views. It was perfect in the time of "Social Distancing".  The owners were very responsive to anything that came up. Highly recommend. RS and family.

We had a great time at your cabin. The recreation room was WONDERFUL!  The kids, 7 and 5, and we 4 adults enjoyed all of the games.  We cooked S'mores every night which was a hit for the kids. Our time here was fun and we will leave with lots of good memories.  I will share your contact with friends. M+KB and family

This was perfect for 2 adults and 2 pre-teen kids! The kids stayed in the game room most of the time.  I was amazed at all the information you provided on area attractions, shopping, and dining. We'll definitely recommend Alpine Log Cabin to my friends. My only regret was that we weren't able to stay longer. KM and family

Amazing! This is coming from a kid's perspective but it was the best! I really liked the rec room downstairs - I spent hours playing over and over.  The beds are very comfy and soft. The view is also very pretty. I recommend this place 100%. Hopefully we'll be back next year. K AND B S AND THE KIDS

WOW!!! is the best expression I can give for our stay in this beautiful cabin home. This was our first experience being in a cabin.  You guys went above and beyond to make sure your guests feel right at home. I am so overwhelmed and excited about our next visit to Alpine Log Cabin with my family.   Thanks for a great experience and getaway. RT,F, AND G FAMILY

We absolutely loved our stay at Alpine Log Cabin. The cabin was amazing and so were the views! We definitely enjoyed the change of scenery. Everthing we went to was super fun! Our favorite was a day trip over to Bristol Caverns in Tennessee. Thank you for sharing your amazing cabin with us. THE LOUISIANA H's 

Weekend Getaway- Five Stars. My family of five adults enjoyed our stay at Alpine Log Cabin. We had more than enough room to spread out.  We enjoyed several of the hiking trails and exploring Blowing Rock. ND FAMILY

This was our 2nd year here and we loved it just as much as our 1st. The cabin is perfect for our family.  The kids love the downstairs game room and the bedroom with the twin beds.  The sunrise is beautiful from the upstairs bedroom.  The location is convenient to everything. Can't wait to come back! THE W FAMILY

Thank you for an amazing time.  The cabin is so beautiful and comfortable. You are the ultimate hosts. C, O, AND D

Dear Forrest and Carole, Alpine Log Cabin is a beautiful place and we loved it! Our family come to the mountains from Florida every year and this was our first time coming to your area.  We enjoyed all of the activities in the area and are lucky to have a picture of each one so we can remember it.  We will definitely be back. THE M FAMILY

What a beautiful backdrop for spending time together as a family!  We came up for our daughter's graduation from Appalachian State University.  Our three adult children are all in college and just finished a couple of weeks during a stressful exam schedule and end of the semesteer.  We have incredibly demanding jobs that do not allow for much down time.  This was as great break for all of us! It allowed us to come together, to laugh, to play games, and just relax. It was much needed!!! This place was perfect for our five adults and our dog.  We loved that the cabin had decorations out. It helped to get us into the spirit.  Thank you for the notebooks with great information and instructions and everything that is labeled and easy to find.  This trip will be a happy family memory that we wiill be able to think back upon with fond memories.  Thank you. THE P FAMILY

We really enjoyed our time here in the cabin. This was the first time away spent with our families.  It was wonderful! I prepared a traditional meal and I'm grateful to have all the comforts of home while I cooked. We enjoyed the beautiful views from the deck and took long walks just exploring.We did some shopping and enjoyed a movie at the Boone Theater. We roasted marshmallows and made S'mores.  We played darts, air hockey, pool, bingo, cornhole and several board games. We didn't watch much TV which was really nice  We have enjoyed a relaxing 5 days doing absolutely nothing! We will celebrate 19 years of marriage on Monday.  It was nice to reconnect with our 16 y/o son and 10 y/o daughter.  We hope to make this a new family tradition. THE C FAMILY

We had a wonderful stay here at Alpine Log Cabin.We absolultely loved the view, all inclusive amenities, and cozy comfort. Thank you for providing terrific hospitality for my family.  Our boys enjoyed skiing Sugar Mountain and my husband even got me on the ski lift this year too.  Thanks so much. You have an amazing place here.  The day we left everything was covered in snow! Lovely! THE W AND H FAMILIES

Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful experience with us! This has been nothing less than amazing. M,R,N,M,C, and P

Thank you again Forrest and Carole for the opportunity to stay at Alpine Log Cabin.  Everything is exactly what we were looking for (and more) in our cabin getaway weekend.  After speaking with both of you on the phone, through e-mails, and texts we've come to actually know you and surely appreciate the quality people you are. J AND M

We really loved our stay in your cozy Alpine Log Cabin!  The cabin is very practical and has everything you need for a fantastic time.  The view from the deck is gorgeous especially at sunrise! We had a lovely drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway.  Everything was perfect! The N family (from Veurne, Belgium)

Dear Mrs. Carole and Mr. Forrest: We had a wonderful time in your beautiful cabin.  We came all the way from Texas and Florida to ski in the North Carolina Mountains.  We spent most of our time on the ski slopes so we leave regretting that we did not spend more time enjoying the cabin.  As we share time there with family and friends it seems like everybody now wants to join us coming back. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your cabin. It is so lovely, clean, well-organized.  You obviously have a commitment to excellence. Have a great rest of the year!!! THE M AND G-D FAMILIES

Wonderful quality time with our three boys (3,5,7 years old).  Had a wonderful visit.  We had a wonderful time hiking, fishing, and staying cozy in the cabin.  Everything was fantastic!! LD AND FAMILY

This has been the BEST vacation rental we've EVER stayed in.  My husband and I and our adult children were so happy to have such an AMAZING experience.  We very much enjoyed meeting Carole and Forrest (the owners of Alpine Log Cabin). HEB AND FAMILY

Fantastic in every way! Could have just sat on the deck and watched the leaves change and the beautiful sunrises. My absolute favorites were enjoying Carole's (the cabin owner) paintings and, of course, the wildlife!! We shall definitely return. M, D, T, R, AND G M 

We had a great stay here at Alpine Log Cabin!! We loved how close the skiing was to the cabin.  So easy to get to. Also the food at Bella's Restaurant in Banner Elk was awesome--you must eat there.  We give it a 100%.  Thank you for making our stay here such an enjoyable place. We will definitely rebook with Alpine Log Cabin. THE H FAMILY AND THE P FAMILY

We had a great time here.  Alpine Log Cabin is awesome and the view (and drive through the community) is amazing and beautiful.  Since we live at the beach we were looking forward to cooler temperatures. Thanks so much. The K family

We sure enjoyed staying at your wonderful cabin. We loved your location. It is central to all the great mountain towns.  Had a blast with all the game tables downstairs!  Carol and I have been admiring your talent with all your paintings (that are hung throughout the cabin). Love nature!  Thank you for sharing your cabin.  It had everything we needed and more. We certainly will return for more fun! THE W FAMILY

 What a wonderful cabin!  We became obsessed with it the minute we walked in. Everything was so well organized which made our stay so relaxing. Some of our highlights were exploring Blowing Rock, hiking (Otter Falls is just down the road), live music at Grandfather Vineyards (less than 3 miles from the cabin). We will definitely be coming back. N and Family

Had a fantastic weekend at your lovely cabin.  All we can say is "WOW".  It is the most well-equipped rental that we have ever stayed in! Thank you for thinking of everything.  Would love to come back again perhaps during ski season. Cheers  The C's

Our second trip to this lovely, immaculate, well-thought-out cabin.  We so love it here!! Traveled up after the Wake Forest football game so very late arrival Friday night (1:45 am) but getting into the cabin even at that time was no problem.  Beautiful weekend to hike, relax, and enjoy the beautiful mountains! The N's 

Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your cabin! The location and view are wonderful. We loved the game room and all of the extras you thought of. W just wish we could've stayed longer! But we look forward to coming back.  Thanks, again! THE T's & THE P's

Once again, we very much enjoyed the three weeks return visit to your cabin.  It is comfortable, conveniently located, and well equipped. We also appreciated the new stereo sound bar in the great room. THE M's

As the previous entries stated, if it isn't here, you don't need it. This is the best house we ever rented!! With be best owners!! Hope to come again. THE D's

Wonderful cabin - Great few days - Thank you. DW & H (from England)

Wonderful stay.  We've booked hotels all across this great nation and this felt more like we were staying at a family residence.  The weather was perfect so we didn't spend a lot of time indoors.  We can't say more than has been said already by others already.  Thank you. The Ms

My daughter and grandchildren had a wonderful time.  As soon as my grandchildren arrived they immediately went downstairs to play in the recreation room.What a great bonus!  Your cabin is fully equipped.  Thank you. M L

We had a very relaxing and eventful time at Hawksnest with our 3-year old and celebrating my wife's birthday.  This is a wonderful and beautiful get-a-way.  Thank you! M,E,&R

Arrived at Alpine Log Cabin. Saw deer grazing below the deck. Made a tasty pot of chili in the cozy kitchen.  Next morning enjoyed a cup of coffee by the fireplace. Took the kids to Price Park to hike. Warmed up with leftover chili and hot dogs -Thank you for providing the firebowl and roasting forks. Had a lazy afternoon enjoying the cabin - played games, watched TV, and ate lots of snacks.  Had a Sunday afternoon of football viewing. Goodbye Alpine Log Cabin. Thank you for the hospitality!  We would love to visit again. The J family 

We were so excited to spend our family vacation at Alpine Log Cabin again.  And, again,  it was perfect. The one rainy day was no problem at all.  The kids loved to just hang out in the cabin enjoying the rec room, played games, and relaxed together watching movies. Grandfather Mountain, Beech Mountain, Hawksnest, and the beautiful Otter Falls were all amazing and wonderfully close to the cabin. Your hospitality is appreciated. You truly have thought of everything! The R family

Where do we warm weather "Miamians" begin?  Thank you for sharing your great log cabin! The weather was great with just a little bit of rain.  You've thought of every amenity - nothing missing from A to Z.  From driving to Asheville and Blowing Rock to Boone and being at Hawksnest.  We really do admit your place is one of the best! So, again, thank you for everything - The list is endless.  L,D,H, A & A 

We had looked and looked online for the perfect spot for us to all come together.  When your cabin came available we were so excited.  Our kids, now adults, met us here.  Thank you for allowing our doggies too as they are part of our family.  We enjoyed the fireplace and the sunrises! Beautiful view!! Thank you for allowing your home to be a place for family to be together.  A place of fun, laughter, and memory making.  We have lots of pictures and this cabin will forever be a part of our memories. K,V,S,T,N,&C

We loved our stay once again.  No other place compares.  We will be back again.  Thank you for creating this wonderful cabin for us. KG, W, & D O

Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful cabin.  The pictures do not do it justice.  We will be back and will tell our friends and family about it.  Again, Thank You. The Ws

We had a wonderful time at your cabin.  It was nice to get away for a change.  It had everything that we needed and my 12-year old son and I had many games of air hockey, pool, and darts.  Funny how we have a pool table at home but never play until we are somewhere else.  The cabin is a great location to be close to everything in the area.  The close-by tennis courts are very nice and Otter Falls trail is a perfect hike and a pretty waterfall.  S,M,B H and R&L S

The cabin is lovely.  From the excellent location to the S'mores, game room, movies, and enjoying a glass of wine on the deck - plus seeing deer everyday we were here! Dr. J, A, T, S, and A

Thank you so much for making our family trip to the mountains such a great experience!  We love that you have thought of everything - from games and toys to brochures and marshmallow skewers.  Your have a beautiful cabin here!  D&C C

The cabin was clean and fully stocked with anything we could need.  Thanks, again! The Ws - G,T,R,C, and L

Awesome cabin!!!  We truly enjoyed this home. It had everything we could want and then some -  from all the games and game tables to all the spices in the kitchen. The beds were so comfortable. We all agreed we had some of the best sleep we've had in a while. We highly recommend this cabin!!  Thanks again for allowing us to have this wonderful weekend in your home! LW & family

Thank you for the use of your cabin last weekend. The cabin was perfect. We really appreciate how you have thought of everything.  There was nothing that we needed that we couldn't find.  We enjoyed hanging out with our daughter.    Your cabin truly is a home. Thank you again! J & M N & family

Gorgeous Cabin, Amazing views, Fabulous Vacation.We had a wonderful stay here this past weekend with our family. The cabin has everything you would need & then some :) So many things to do nearby, and after a long day of exploring coming back to the cabin to relax and unwind was absolutely perfect!! We can't wait to visit again and will definitely be back!! The owners have truly thought of everything, which made our stay here one of our BEST vacations yet!!! CL & family

Cabin was a quick 6 minute drive to Hawksnest. Was very well cleaned when we arrived. lots of brochures and literature on nearby events. Made for a great weekend in the mountains. Would definitely return. SW and family

The home was very comfortable and completely stocked including all types of brochures of the area. The views were beautiful and the home is convenient to all the best areas. Excellent ski areas just a short distance away. The game room on the main floor was a big hit with my family. I highly recommend the Alpine Log Cabin for a wonderful and great experience stay. ML and Family

The location of the cabin is awesome! The view and conditions of Alpine Log Cabin were excellent and exceeded our expectations! Location, Comfort, Cleanliness, Facilities, and Value for the money all 10 out of 10!! KD and Family

Great location and view. Very comfortable and well stocked. Alpine log cabin was very comfortable and a great location with a beautiful view. It’s prettier than the pictures show. It’s in the middle of all of the attractions in the area. The owners are incredible!!! They are so organized and have everything labeled and notebooks and brochures at the cabin to help with what to do and see. The kitchen has everything you need if you want to cook. The couch is so roomy and comfortable and the fire comes on with a flip of the switch. The game room in the basement is perfect to keep everyone entertained while at the house. The cabin is great for dogs since the large back deck is closed off and there is room in front and the side to let your dog out to potty. There is a very nice tennis court 5 minutes away and a great hike to some falls just past the courts. I would definitely stay here again. SH and Family

I reserved this cabin for my daughter for her birthday. She was amazed how awesome it is. My daughter reported that everything was perfect. Beautiful view and gorgeous cabin . She had a wonderful time. She wants us to go back with her. This cabin is worth every penny!!! Now I can’t wait for an opportunity to go!! CC for G&R T

We came this weekend to tour App State University where my granddaughter wants to attend college. Alpine Log Cabin was perfect. Your hospitality was more than we could have hoped for.  My youngest granddaughter fell in love with the cabin and plans on buying it from you.  She's 12 and has almost $100 saved.  LOL - I'm sure she'll be making an offer soonlaughing THE P FAMILY

We enjoyed our stay tremendously! We have returned here to Boone for many years to celebrate Homecoming and add this to our cabin favorites! We extended the offer this year for my sister to come with us and she was amazed especially with the morning view of the mountains from the deck where we enjoyed having breakfast.  Alpine Log Cabin was the perfect size for us.  I highly recommend this to others and look forward to our return visit. Thank you for providing anything and everything we could think of! H, A, & S

This is a beautiful cabin with a breathtaking view of the mountains.  We love the "Man/Woman cave" game room!  Overall this place is just gorgeous! The perfect place to relax. Thank you Carole and Forrest for making our stay so great!! K & S B + G & C

My family came here to take our one year old to Grand Father Mountain and Tweetsie Railroad for the first time (he loved it!).  We could not have asked for a better place to stay.  Mr. and Mrs. Byron answered all of our questions ahead of time and made sure we had all the information we needed! Our son absolutely loved the colorful toy blocks.  He played with them nonstop.  Thank you for sharing your cabin with us! We will definitely be back again next year. B, S, and P

We can’t thank you enough for letting us come spend the weekend at your home. We had such a wonderful time! Our girls especially loved the game room down stairs! You made the process so easy and I hope we returned the favor by meticulously following the checkout procedures on the fridge. We look forward to passing along your cabin info to friends. K

What a terrific summer at Alpine Log Cabin.  Everything from A to Z was great! Thanks Carole and Forrest for making our stay so nice.  See you next summer.  R & F

Fantastic Summer! We have been visiting the North Carolina mountains for years and had our best visit yet! Alpine Log Cabin is everything you could wish for - spacious, bright, comfortable, beautiful vistas, birds and deer - and an easy access to 105 and all the great places to visit in Banner Elk, Foscoe and Boone. Our stay was delightful and in no small part due to the considerate attention of the host/owners Carole and Forrest who are dedicated to making sure your visit is all you hope for. Alpine Cabin is perfect for a short visit or for those wishing to stay for a longer period. We already miss our evenings on the deck. THE B'S

Awesome location and hospitality. If you’re looking for a place in the Boone/Blowing Rock area, look no further!”  Bobby

Thank you so much for everything. Alpine Log Cabin was perfect for our needs.  We enjoyed visiting the attractions in the surrounding area but probably liked the view off your back deck best!!!  The H's   And from their oldest daughter: "My little sister and I had lots of fun in the downstairs game room playing air hockey and bingo.  It is great that so many amazing attractions are close by.  We also enjoyed all the art on the walls of the cabin.  Thank you for providing us with board games and brochures to keep us entertained.  Your cabin is beautiful and this has been an amazing vacation" TH

Thanks so much for the great hospitality. We came up with our family for a wedding in Valle Crucis.  The cabin location was great and convenient to everything.  The cabin has everything we could have asked for and the view is amazing. We will be back!! RW AND FAMILY

Celebrated our daughter's graduation from Appalachian State University and moved her out of The Cottages of Boone this weekend. Wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy all of the in-house activities available at Alpine Log Cabin before heading back to Baltimore.  You have a wonderful attention to detail! The W's

Thanks for your hospitality. We had a fantastic time using the cabin as "base camp" for trips to Boone, Blowing Rock, and various hiking trails.  We especially loved the beauty of Otter Falls. The new coffee shop near Lowe's makes great cocoas and mochas, not to mention the smoothies.  The Pedalin' Pig BBQ is tasty too - Large portions.  We ate in and dined out and played lots of pool and poker.  Can't think of anything else we'd need. Cheers! The C's from VA

We really enjoyed our stay at Alpine Log Cabin.  So close to everything, and after a long day at Sugar Mountain it was nice to come back to a warm cabin with the fireplace. We really enjoyed the game room also.  Had some home cooked meals because of the well-stocked kitchen.  Nice size cabin for a family of five.  Thanks again for letting us make some wonderful memories at your cabin.  MB's from S. Carolina

A dream vacation. The view from the cabin is breathtaking - clouds rolling over the mountain range like ocean waves.  Sunrises and sunsets with a range of pinks and reds, purples and lilacs that completely mystify. We shared countless laughter sitting around the fireplace playing games until the wee morning hours (loved Bird-opoly!). and the recreation room was a dream come true for our family. We played air hockey to our heart's content.  Best wishes for the remainder of 2018.  The art is gorgeous especially loved the painting you did that hangs above the magazine rack.  Captivating! The D B's

The cabin had three floors and was very spacious. It had everything needed for a family of 4 & a dog. The cabin's location made it a great base for trips to Boone, Blowing Rock, and Grandfather Mountain. We did daily hikes down to Otter Falls which is about a mile away which could be done in an hour. When not out and about, we had plenty to do at the cabin with the game room and games. The gas fireplace was great for chilly spring evenings too. Thanks to the Byrons for their attention to detail and hospitality!  CC and Family

Peace in the Mountains. This was just what we needed to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of life back in FL. The view was awesome. It was not too far out and getting in to town was quick. Hope to come back next year. DM

We have enjoyed it so much we are talking about going again in the summer or fall. We loved it. I see no improvements needed. Everything was there and helpful. Thank you for the lovely stay. MH

The cabin was by far one of our favorite places we have stayed in the N.C. mountains!! Carole and Forrest were incredibly accommodating and answered any questions we had about the cabin. From the game room to the cozy living room to the views from the back deck-it was a five star experience! We hope to come back SO soon and experience it all again. Thank you!” RG

Enjoyed ourselves so much !! Had the opportunity to do snow tubing twice!! Had more exercise in 1 day than the whole month.  The cabin was so comfortable and well appointed. Y'all did exceed our expectations !! Will definitely visit Alpine Log Cabin again. The B family - D,B,S,& B

What a weekend! We absolutely loved our stay at Alpine Log Cabin for so many reasons! We drove from Raleigh and were hoping for snow, unsure if we were going to get any.  We woke up Saturday morning and everything was white!! We hunkered down all morning - had the fireplace on, played games, and enjoyed the view from the deck.  We decided to go for a walk up the street and on the way back down R proposed! (Editor's note: G accepted the marriage proposal). We couldn't have been happier.  We raced back to the cabin, called everyone, and celebrated all day - all in your beautiful cabin - a day and weekend we will never forget.  R & G

Thank you so much for sharing your very beautiful cabin with our family.  Your informational e-mails made our arrival easy.  We were able to come in and make ourselves at home with little effort.  The notebook and cabin were so organized we could just relax.  We made great use of the game room - the kids loved the area and a nice way for them to chill after a busy day.  The view was breathtaking, peaceful, and gorgeous at all times of the day.  Loved early mornings with everyone asleep and my coffee, taking in the peacefulness.  My favorite time was the evenings watching TV or playing games with the family by the fireplace.  We spent our days at Sugar Mountain tubing, Beech Mountain ice skating and sledding every day. Being from Florida the snow activities were exciting and a new adventure.  Gem mining was also a surprising fun event for us all.  I am certain we never heard "I am bored" which in itself means this vacation was awesome! We made great memories. Parents relaxed and kids had a blast. Your cabin made it all complete.  We will be sharing with friends and family and hope to return.  Thank you. The R family

What a perfect cabin! Alpine Log Cabin was the best place for our winter getaway.  The game room and board games were a hit with our family of three. I think we played Chutes and Ladders at least 10 times each day.  The cabin is centrally located so we didn't have to travel far to get to Boone, Blowing Rock, Grandfather Mountain or Hawksnest.  This was the perfect stress free place to relax! Thank you for sharing this piece of heaven with us. C, A, & L  S from S. Carolina

Such a beautiful cabin! We had so much fun with our little kids and got to let the play out front in the snow and have fun with tubing at Sugar Mountain while some of us adults also got to ski.  The view and sunrise from here as breathtaking! We posted all about our fun experience on FB and many of our friends have asked us for the details.  We sent them your website.  Thank you so much Carole and Forrest for making this space the perfect cabin in the mountains getaway!  We will be back. The C family and the C family from Florida

We absolutely loved our stay at Alpine Log Cabin! Everything was great - the cabin itself, the view, the community. We definitely want to return! Nice touch with the Winter decorations. J&G

Alpine Log Cabin is our new piece of Heaven.  Thank you so much for sharing this space with us.  We will be back! K, D, AND W

Thank you so so so much!!! Honestly, we have been coming to North Carolina for many years and Seven Devils for 3 years and we have never repeated a cabin. This is our first time when everyone is so happy about this cabin and your hospitality that for next year trip this is the only place we want to stay!!! Thanks again THE N FAMILY

The Best! There is nothing much to say but that this is by far the best cabin experience we have ever had. Carole and Forrest have thought of everything and make sure that you have the time of your life! We can't wait to go back, which is a first for us!!! YN

Awesome Stay! The amenities at the cabin were abundant. We were not lacking for anything! The spaciousness inside the cabin was perfect for the six adults and the game room provided us with alternate entertainment without having to leave the cabin. When we ventured out it was awesome to be so close to Blowing Rock with its many restaurants and shops. We made many wonderful memories during our time away with our family! Thank you! M&C H AND FAMILY

Great cabin! My extended family rented your cabin for a Christmas getaway. We loved everything about it. It's so cozy, and we loved the Christmas decorations - what a thoughtful touch! We really enjoyed the game room. There was so much to do, we didn't need to leave for anything. We hope to be able to return next year. LAH

Serenity. This cabin has the most beautiful views of the mountains! It is extremely peaceful and relaxing. The cabin was spotless and I felt at home as soon as I walked in. The pictures don’t do this getaway home justice. It’s even more stunning in person. My boyfriend and I will definitely be returning!! KG

Absolutely loved our stay in Boone NC. Alpine Log Cabin was terrific and much more then we expected!! This was our first time renting a cabin and we were not sure what the cabin was going to be like. This cabin was so well equipped with everything we needed and even more. We wanted to feel like we were in the mountains and we really got that feeling with this cabin and the location of the cabin. We had one rainy day while we were in Boone NC but since the cabin had quite a few books and games we enjoyed being able to use them. The views from the back of the cabin from the deck are spectacular. We had taken some beautiful pictures to show our family and friends. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone that would like a nice relaxing time in the mountains. So thankful to be able to have the opportunity to stay in this nice cabin. DG

I came with my brother, sister, mom, dad, and brother-in-law - We ad a great time at Alpine Log Cabin.  The 4 days just flew by.  The accommodations were great. Visited Grandfather Mountain, Mast General store, Grandfather Vineyards (Wine tasting) and Emerald Village. Loved the log cabin - playing cards, playing pool- The owners are fantastic people. L F and family

Amazing place for a vacation and we will definitely be back! My father grew up in the area and wanted to take me to see it.  This is my first time in the area and it is so beautiful! The cabin is so homey and clean.  There was more than enough space and had everything you could possibly need.  Our working K9 Roco was even welcome at the cabin.  We enjoyed the views, cooking food, hiking, going into town, and the cabin's cozy living space. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this cabin! Thank you so much for welcoming us. C, S, and R

The perfect place to relax and unwind.  I spent wonderful days walking, sitting on the deck and having a peaceful place to chill out.  All the instructions that are here made everything so easy.  You obviously care a great deal about your guests.  Thanks, again.  GR

Great for our family of 6.  Weather was sunny and gorgeous. We really enjoyed the cabin game room especially the air hockey. Alpine Log Cabin smells clean and "woodsy" when you walk in. Comfortable.  The kitchen is cozy and functional - I cook a lot on these trips and the kitchen had everything I needed.  The charcoal grill worked well for our London Broil. Also enjoyed the nearby Foscoe Gem Mining Co. and the curvy roads.  The entire cabin is very, very well equipped.  Wouldn't mind being trapped here for a week in the snow!! Thank you so much for sharing your cabin with us.  The W's

Absolutely PERFECT!! We had the most incredible time with my 90 year old parents and 2 brothers and husband. The owners thought of everything imaginable!! We travel often and always use VRBO and this was the best choice ever!!! Perfect time of year! Amazing log cabin, perfect for 6. extraordinary views from deck! We can't wait to book again!!! RF

Beautiful home with amazing views! We absolutely loved this cabin. It was in a wonderful location, with Blowing Rock, Boone, Banner Elk, and Beech Mountain easily accessible. We loved the quiet neighborhood and enjoyed hiking at nearby Otter Falls. The home was so comfortable and had everything we needed! We enjoyed wonderful local restaurants and took the kiddos to Tweetsie Railroad for the Halloween Ghost Train. The owners were wonderful to work with and booking was super easy. I've already shared photos and brochures with my family members...We will be back as soon as we can! Thank you so much! Wish we could've stayed longer! HW
Absolutely beautiful place! Just what I needed. You can tell as soon as you walk in the door that this place is truly cared for by its owners. It was clean and organized with all the instructions you'll ever need right there in a detailed book. The owners were accessible if anything was needed, but it wasn't needed at all. Each room was lovely. The kitchen had everything you'd need. The view was beautiful and the great room was bright and sunny. It's close to shopping, restaurants and activities and all the directions are in the book. GR
Very Nice! I am from the area and I return at least once a year. This was the best house I have rented to date. It was very clean and had all of the amenities one could ask for. I will rent this cabin again. CT

Excellent! Wish we could have stayed longer! Perfect for two couples and two kids. Everything was well equipped and the sunrise views from the queen bedrooms were outstanding. The game room was a big hit with the kids. The area is quiet and there's a nice walking trail with waterfall about a 5-7 minute drive from the cabin. We look forward to a return trip!  AW

Great cabin...everything you need! My husband and I, and our two kids (8 and 10) took a weekend trip to the mountains. We spent 2 nights and it was the perfect cabin for us! It had everything we could possibly need or want. The beds were comfortable, my kids LOVED the game room and spent both evenings playing down there, and the cabin was a easy drive to the App State game on Saturday and Tweetsie on Sunday. We enjoyed sitting outside on the back deck after dinner both nights and then going inside to watch TV on the comfy sectional couch. The owners have thought of every amenity one could need or want whether for a mini vacation or an extended trip.  CB

We loved staying at your cabin.  My husband and I are both Appalachian State University grads and we came to watch the season opener game and take our kids (8&9) to Tweetsie.  The view from your deck is gorgeous. The kids loved the recreation room and you provided every accommodation we could need or want! The B family

Thank you for sharing your home with us.  It is such a beautiful cabin located in an ideal spot.  Our 10 year-old boys really enjoyed the game room and it was ideal on the cold and rainy day we had on Saturday. It was nice to come home to such a well-stocked cabin.  We enjoyed this so much we plan to be back the same three-day holiday weekend next year. The U's

Dear Carole and Forrest,  We can't believe we've been here an entire month but it's now over and we must go back to the Florida heat and humidity!  We really enjoyed Alpine Log Cabin and appreciate all the special touches you have done to make your lovely cabin so livable. D enjoyed the "Shut the Box" game so much that we bought one at Mast General Store.  It will be a fond reminder of the fun we had here with our friends from Arizona. Your caretaker has been so friendly and helpful.  She is a gem!  We are taking a few of your business cards to share with friends and family.  After seeing the pictures we posted on social media, several of them are interested in spending some time at Alpine Log Cabin.  We met a few of the neighbors while walking our little dogs and they made us feel very welcome in the neighborhood.  We hope to return before too long.  You have been great hosts! Blessings, B&DP

As we approached your lovely cabin, all four kids in the back of our van cheered! We could tell right away this was going to be a very memorable vacation for all of us. Your home is so lovely, clean, and organized.  We so appreciate you thinking of all the little things.  It was so nice to finally RELAX.  I personally loved making a cappuccino and sitting on the back deck. My husband loved the views and cool air at night. The kids LOVED all of your games from the pool table to Chutes and Ladders.  Our dog loved spotting wildlife (mostly deer).  We love the area in summer. We explored Grandfather Mountain, Otter Falls, Tweetsie Railroad, The Speedway, Linville Falls, Mast General Store, and Foggy Mountain Gem Mine.  We ate in downtown Boone and in Blowing Rock.  Your cabin made our trip. Some of the best times were lounging and playing games.  We loved your paintings - You are so talented. Thank you for sharing your home with us! THE E FAMILY

This was our first time staying in a cabin and we  are hooked! The style and decor of your lovely cabin made for a complete "High Country" experience.  We enjoyed many of the local outdoor activities and also savored the beautiful, quiet moments indoors. In addition I think we have a future pool shark! We will definitely recommend Alpine Log Cabin to our Florida friends who want to escape the summer heat.

We love the mountains of NC. We normally stay in the Boone area. Your Alpine Log Cabin is beautiful. Very Clean! Loved sitting on the deck and front porch with a cup of coffee. This was our 30th Wedding Anniversary and spending it here was wonderful - Very Peaceful. J&KG

What a fantastic place!! My husband, his parents, and I marveled at the beauty of your cabin & the surreal views off the back deck. The information you sent helped us plan a packed but short visit. The cool breezes kept us sooo comfy in JULY!! We couldn't ask for more. We will definitely return and recommend this magic place to our "city" friends.  Thanks again for your hospitality and amazing details for the traveler. You have set the bar very high! W&FT + PF&NE

We thoroughly enjoyed the use of your beautiful log cabin with the most beautiful views off the deck.  We recently retired and this was our first week of doing what we have earned after working 40 years. Our kids and grand kids joined us for a couple of days and we stayed busy golfing, eating, shopping, and hiking the rest of the week. Your home was everything advertised and more.  We look forward to coming back. C&CM

Awesome time at the Alpine Log Cabin. Our family had a great time at Alpine Log Cabin. The owners, Carole and Forrest, have done an outstanding job on making the cabin feel like home. The place was absolutely immaculate. Our youngest son really enjoyed the game room and had a blast playing pool. The view from the back deck is fantastic and provided a great back drop for evening meals. There are plenty of things to do with the family within a short drive. We were able to enjoy hiking at Grandfather Mountain and Linville Falls, white water rafting, trout fishing, and toured Linville Caverns. For those willing to zip line, Hawksnest is a short 5 minute drive. I would highly recommend Alpine Log Cabin for those wanting a relax full and stress free get away. Hope to return shortly.  JM

Great location, beautiful views, awesome cabin. Owners provide a great experience. We will definitely come back. Alpine Log Cabin has more than you need, with great attention to detail. Highly recommend! FT

Thank you for lending us your beautiful log cabin. We enjoyed hiking and sitting on the deck enjoying the beautiful view. Our 16 year old grandson got up and took some awesome pictures of the sunrise. We had competition every night playing pool after days spent in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We saw some deer and loved listening to the birds in the morning. Your mountain home was very comfortable and in a great location.  The M & O families

Thank you for sharing your cabin with us so we could enjoy a mountain vacation! We relished the cool mountain breezes.  Alpine Log Cabin is very comfortable and offers everything a family needs to feel "at home".  We enjoyed many local activities from this centrally located cabin:  ziplining at Hawksnest; horseback riding in Banner Elk; shopping in Boone and Blowing Rock; and all the many beautiful hikes on all the local trails. Thanks, again.  J, C, L & J

This cabin is centrally located to all the many activities in this area. We enjoyed privacy & quality family time at the cabin, but were able to engage in many adventures with our 2 teens & the dogs. We immediately felt at home, since you provide all the necessities - no detail overlooked. It was refreshing to have our 15 & 18-year-old abandon the " TV screens" for time in the game room every night! We really appreciate that you allow dogs, as we would not have been able to come if we could not have brought them along. They certainly enjoyed the cooler temps & no humidity - since we are from Florida! Keep up the great work & thank you. CZ AND FAMILY

Alpine Log Cabin is the perfect place for a week stay in the National Forest. It feels secluded and is very quiet but is centrally located to so many outdoor activities that we were always active. This is the way we like our vacations. The cabin is beautifully furnished, has very comfortable beds and couches, and lots of room. The back deck is a great place for dinners, relaxing, and enjoying the lovely layers of the Blue Ridge Mountains. And by the way, on the one rainy day that we had that week, the game room, many board games ( marathon Catan matches), and wonderful fireplace made the day one to remember fondly. Carole and Forrest have done it right! AM

We enjoyed our stay this weekend.  Thank you so much for opening your house to us and letting us stay.  Everything was very clean and the directions were very clear and easy to understand.  We will definitely let friends and family know about our long weekend at Alpine Log Cabin. RA

We enjoyed our time here.  The house was perfect. Very clean and was perfect for us.  We will be sharing this cabin with our friends and family and we are hoping to come again. TP

Thank you for the use of your cabin.  Our weekend stay to celebrate my wife's birthday was nothing short of wonderful.  We enjoyed the many attractions Boone, NC has to offer including the majestic mountains.  We will definitely be back. TS

Thank you for sharing your cabin with us.  You are wonderful and sweet host.  Your cabin is beautifully decorated and we loved the fully-stocked kitchen.  We are looking forward to coming back. SO CLEAN! P,E,A, & H

We had a beautiful time on our trip but what made it even better was coming home to your beautiful cabin every night. We had plenty of things to do and loved the views. The game room suited us perfectly and having Netflix was great. Thank you for allowing us to stay on our weekend getaway! AL

Great long weekend with friends! The cabin is beautiful, well appointed, and very comfortable. Carole and Forrest provide excellent information on the local area including a binder of local menus. It was chilly so we spent more time inside than we normally would but the fireplace kept us warm and cozy. It provided just the right atmosphere to catch up with friends we don't get to see very often. The local attractions, including Grandfather Mountain and Mast General store kept us engaged. We highly recommend this as a great weekend or longer venue for family and friends. R & K families

The property was beautiful - just as advertised! We really enjoyed our visit. The cabin was exactly as the pictures showed and was very comfortable. The pool table was a hit with our boys. It was nice to have all the information needed to find things to do or restaurants to go to right in the cabin. We look forward to returning. 

Thank you so much for letting us use your cabin.  It is beautiful! We felt so at home here.  We loved the pool table and the fireplace (My favorite two places to be).  Skiing at Sugar and Appalachian was AWESOME!  Our boys learned to snowboard there.  What wonderful memories we made! WF

The cabin is very cozy and comfortable. The recreation room is AWESOME!!! Lots of things to see and do at the cabin and the Blue Ridge Mountain area. Plenty of books, games, and DVDs for "kids" of all ages. We'll definitely come back and stay longer next time. CB

The following verses were put in our guest book by a recent guest and we felt it perfectly describes experiences at Alpine Log Cabin (Carole and Forrest Byron, Owners) -- Sweet song of shades of Blue/Exhilaration of cold air filled lungs/Deep sense of well being and awareness/Rich contrast of connection and liberation/To Feel/To Think/To Hear and To See/THIS IS TO LIVE!!!

We had a wonderful stay in your cabin.  Everything is so cool! I'm having so much fun here in the U.S.  My host family treats me as part of the family and brings me everywhere. I wish y-all that are reading this a safe trip and a cool stay!  Enjoy!! AV (exchange student from Italy)

We love this cabin.  Thank you for sharing. Clean, cozy, and inviting! Kids loved the game room and so did the adults.  Much warmer than anticipated but your proximity to everything makes finding adventure so easy!!  We wish we had more time to stay.  We would love to come back.  Thank you again. TM

We thoroughly enjoyed your cabin. Everything was perfect.  The kids loved the game room! We appreciate all the efforts you have made to make this experience perfect for our family. MB

Wonderful communication prior to arrival was so easy and thorough! Cabin was clean, organized and very well stocked with everything we needed, not to mention very charming!! So close to everything- our trip included snow tubing, skiing, restaurants, downtown Boone, Banner Elk and Grandfather Mountain- highly recommend a stay here!! MR

The perfect cabin for our post-Christmas trip to the mountains. It snowed our last morning here - MAGIC for our 3 year old and 1 year old children.  Our 3 year old son got his first ski lesson at Sugar Mountain.  Thank you for sharing your beautiful home away from home with us.  B

We had a great post Christmas trip to Alpine Log Cabin and highly recommend it. Unlike a lot of rentals, it actually has everything you need for a home away from home. Great views, plenty of space and easy to get to the ski slopes or shopping in Banner Elk, Boone, Blowing Rock. Make sure you sign up early if you want to go tubing in Hawksnest. DB

This was our first experience spending the holidays away from home and we had an amazing vacation!  Snow tubing at Hawksnest (just down the road) was a great family experience.  We also visited Grandfather Mountain, Beech Mountain, and some parts of Boone.  Cabin was decorated perfectly. HF

This year for Christmas Santa gifted my children a trip to the mountains. Mommy found Alpine Log Cabin and it was the perfect spot! We played board games as a family (provided at the cabin), utilized the game room downstairs, went to nearby Hawksnest Tubing, Sugar Mountain, and tons of other places. The cabin itself was very clean, had everything we needed for the stay and was very cozy. Views were amazing! Would definitely book again. AK

Our stay at Alpine Log Cabin was amazing. The owners were wonderful. They answered our questions quickly and thoroughly. They had so much information at the cabin to answer any question we had. The cabin was clean and beautiful! It felt warm and cozy. They even had a Christmas tree and decorations up to make it feel like home. They had so many board games to play and my kids loved the game room downstairs. The kids barely touched their electronics while we were there. We would definitely recommend it and would love to return again! MB

We had a wonderful week at the Alpine Log Cabin as a family with two kids and a dog. The cabin was clean, had all of the items we needed as well as a ton of games for both the kids and adults. The back deck is fantastic and the community is friendly and conveniently located. While other cabins are nearby, they are not intrusive in any way. We enjoyed seeing two families of deer each morning and evening as well as a host of birds. The cabin is conveniently located to many attractions and we would definitely go back. There is a cozy living room where the family can gather as well as plenty of space in the bedrooms and game room to give everyone plenty of space. All and all a great vacation rental. SL

Great location. Close to tubing. Cabin had everything we needed and more. We really enjoyed our stay! The cabin was clean, easy to get to even during snowy conditions, and was very close to Hawks nest tubing center. It was spacious for our group of 6 and was kid friendly. We didn't cook while we were there but the kitchen seemed to be well equipped. There were also plenty of linens and other supplies. We would definitely rent again! AE

I attended ASU in the 80's and wanted to show "my place" to my kids. We skied Beech Mountain, Appalachian Mountain, and had dinner at Woodlands - the best BBQ in the country! The only problem was that the weekend went too fast. Loved every bit of our weekend here. SR

We LOVED staying at this cabin! We rented this cabin for the weekend during a visit to Appalachian State University. We wanted to stay somewhere other than a hotel for the weekend and we wanted to take our small dog. The Alpine Cabin was in a great location and had the most amazing views! The owners Carole and Forrest were super nice to work with and had great communication leading up to our visit. They were not kidding when they said this cabin had EVERYTHING! This cabin, and our stay exceeded our expectations and we will be back! Thanks again for an amazing getaway weekend! AN

Fantastic cabin with everything we needed.  This cabin exceeded our expectations! We wanted a cabin in the mountains where we felt right at home, had a great view and pet friendly so our small dog could come with us. The Alpine Log Cabin had just that and so much more. We rented the cabin for a long weekend to tour colleges in the area. Carole and Forrest were a pleasure to work with and had great communication before and after our trip. The new REC room downstairs was a lot of fun. I will be renting this cabin again for sure! GW

We had an awesome stay at the cabin. We needed a weekend getaway and this was the perfect spot. Forrest and Carole were extremely kind and professional during the entire process. The cabin was stocked with everything you could need and more. Our dog loved sitting on the deck watching for deer and we enjoyed grilling with the mountain view. We were sad to leave. We will be back. Oh and the cabin was super clean. AC

We had an excellent stay in this beautiful cabin. It's a gorgeous cabin, lovely setup, extremely well equipped--it had everything we needed. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider returning. Grandma, our 3 year old son and our baby enjoyed this cabin thoroughly. The cabin had both a porta-crib and booster seat which came in handy. It's perfect for all generations. P&RH

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your cabin.  Our son's wedding was beautiful and we were much more comfortable than in a hotel.  The views were great. The kids enjoyed the game room!! HC

Graduation weekend was a huge success much in part to our wonderful accommodations.  Your cabin is so charming. We all had a fabulous time.  Thanks for the extra things you did for our graduate.  We will definitely be back.  RL

We had a wonderful stay in your mountain log cabin.  Enjoyed the views from the deck, board games, fireplace, and simply relaxing in the spacious family room.  Also explored  Banner Elk, hiking at Grandfather Mountain, Shopping in Blowing Rock + Boone for an awesome mountain experience.  I graduated from ASU ('83) and so enjoyed sharing a little of the "High Country" with my Tarheel family.  THANK YOU!  ML

We enjoyed our stay in your lovely cabin. So nice to be out of the Florida heat. DH

This cabin was perfect. Very comfortable and very clean! Carole and Forrest thought of everything. The cabin was fully equipped and is in the perfect location. The view out back was breathtaking. We will definitely come back. JN

The listing was as described and made for a nice Spring break getaway for two nights with our kids. Very clean and spacious. A nice supply of pantry items in case you are cooking. The gas logs are nice! We spotted some deer next to the cabin late one evening. So beautiful! ML

Our first visit to the North Carolina mountains has been fantastic! When we arrived from Wake Forest, we immediately all fell in love with your cabin!  It fits our family of 5 and dog perfectly.  While we were here we hiked Otter Falls and Grandfather Mountain!  We tubed Beech Mountain, visited Linville Caverns, went Horseback Riding, and played lots of board games! Your cabin is extremely cozy and warm!  Thank you so much for sharing it with us. C&J H

Classic mountain cabin! Our time at the Alpine Log Cabin couldn't have been any better! The owners are the most detailed and organized VRBO owners I've ever met. The cabin is very clean and very roomy! It's located in the middle of so many activities going in different directions. The beds are comfortable! I would highly recommend this cabin! CH

We have had a great time staying at your cozy cabin. We didn't spend a whole lot of time in it due to all the activities we were enjoying in the mountains but it was good to know we had somewhere comfortable to come home to and enjoy a Netflix movie and go to bed. It was not hard to tell that y'all have worked hard to make this the best experience you can for your guests and that's why we'll be letting others know of your place if they are looking to take a vacation. We have enjoyed our honeymoon and hope to be back to enjoy many anniversaries. Once again, thank you. J&M B 

My family and I stayed here for a quick getaway. It was absolutely wonderful! Very clean and had everything you could need for a trip away from home. The location was great and close to many attractions and restaurants. My family will hopefully be back to enjoy the beautiful area over the Summer. Thank you Carole and Forrest for opening your amazing cabin to us. NO

Everything was perfect! The place is great, the home is charming and has all the right appointments. The owners are great communicators! MD

We had a wonderful time at the cabin. Everything was exactly as pictured. The beds were super comfy and so was the couch. The living room gave such a warm and cozy atmosphere with the fireplace. We would love stay here again in the future. AF

This was our first trip to Blue Ridge Mountains. Everything was perfect! We loved the location of the cabin. It was close to many beautiful sites and activities. Our daughter caught her first fish on this trip. We were fortunate enough to bring our family pet. He and our daughter loved running out back. After a busy day of activities we found it so relaxing in the cabin and the fireplace brought back childhood memories. We loved the cabin and Seven Devils so much that We found ourselves looking for cabins for sale and job opportunities...My family and I look forward to our next visit! NW

Very private, well kept, and had tons of amenities to make us feel right at home! We loved that there was a plethora of area information to help us decide what to do. We definitely would come back again!  MG

We wanted to express our gratitude for allowing us to stay in your beautiful cabin.  We really enjoyed the snow on our first night and the careful drive up the mountain!  The views were spectacular from every angle!  We hope to stay with you again. WM 

BEAUTIFUL cabin in a wonderful location.  Remote yet close to everything.  Comfortable beds. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay here to start a new family tradition of "choose & cut" our Christmas tree.  We appreciated the notebook full of information of area attractions, restaurants, and festivals.  The property manager was exceptional to work with!!  BW

My family traveled for the weekend and walking in we were very happy. The pictures online don't do the property justice. The open concept living room was very functional for our family to gather and spend time together. The bedrooms were spacious and the entire cabin was very clean. We are planning to rent this property again.  KM

My wife and I were elated to spend time in a beautiful mountain view cabin nestled in a peak of Seven Devils. We found the scenery and various Sites to be breath taking. The local people in the area were extremely friendly and helpful. Our experience will be remembered eternally. An 

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the Alpine Log Cabin. We picked a long weekend in January and its perfect for our family of 4, with the potential for our children to bring a friend. Just a short drive to Sugar Mountain and area restaurants, the house is well maintained, and has everything one could need for a week or weekend away. The large leather sofas are comfortable to relax in after a full day of skiing or outdoor activities. Carole and Forrest have made some good improvements in the last year with a gas log fireplace and the beginning of a game room (pool table) in the basement. We plan to be back next year! JC

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful cabin. We really enjoyed our stay and can honestly say it was the best weekend either of us had in a long time. J

We created a friend's weekend to escape to the mountains from Raleigh. The fresh air was invigorating and the cozy cabin helped create a lot of great memories--family dinner, game nights, ski days, and hanging together made this the best weekend ever. Beautiful cabin. Hope to return again. SD

Thank you for a lovely weekend. We've already recommended your log cabin to more friends and family than any other place we've ever stayed. M

Thanks so much for your hospitality. This is a beautiful place to be. There was a deer in the front yard last night - a great way to end a vacation. BW

We enjoyed our stay in your lovely cabin!!!! This was our first time traveling with our nine-week old twin daughters and your cabin worked wonderfully for us. Our five-year-old daughter and dogs loved it as well. We visited Grandfather Mountain and the Wooly Worm Festival. We had lots of fun and made wonderful memories. Thanks for everything! AH

Thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin with us. It was exactly what we needed! Watching the sun rise in the morning was amazing!! We left the blinds open so it would wake us up. Our favorite part was sipping our hot chocolate in front of a roaring fire after an Appalachian State Football Game. We are refreshed and ready to go back to work on Monday. LB

Thanks for sharing your log cabin with us. We had an amazing time - the views were great!! We had three adults, two four-year olds, a two-year old, and an infant. There were plenty of games and toys to keep the kids busy and happy. DP

Amazing Place with all we needed. Quiet and very clean! Thank you so much. You will see us back for sure. Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!!DO

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your lovely cabin. We had a great time. Coming to the mountains and picking/cutting our Christmas tree was great. Your home has all there is to offer and in a great location. It was very warm and inviting. You were also a pleasure to speak with and we really loved how concerned you were with making our stay wonderful. We will definitely be back. CK

Fantastic!! The cabin delivered everything as promised and more. The owners are the essence of hospitality. The cabin was clean and organized and had great views. Access to town shopping and attractions were close-by. We would definitely recommend this to friends and family and a future stay. Thank you, M+L

Great cabin in the mountains. Near ski resorts and hiking trails. We had a wonderful stay at Alpine Log Cabin. The cabin has a very cozy feel with the comforts of home. Inside the furnishings are all you would hope for with some amazing views. Plenty of warmth in the cabin even on the bitter cold nights. Parking is on the shoulder of the road which is fine and I realize now it was necessary since the cabin is on the mountain side. We look forward to visiting again as the home has a great location near snow tubing and ski resorts. M

Perfect cabin minutes from the slopes. This cabin was exactly what we needed.  Very quaint and tastefully decorated. JC

My husband, 2 children(ages 8 & 12), my sister, her husband & myself all comfortably stayed at the cabin for the weekend in December 2015. Every year we do the choose & cut Christmas Tree experience. This cabin was absolutely in a perfect location to either snow tube, ski, hike, drive the Blue Ridge, or go to the many choose & cut farms around. So, no matter the season or weather, there's definitely something to do within 15 minutes of the cabin. The views were gorgeous from the back deck & the home was stocked with everything we needed & more for our weekend visit. We will definitely plan on coming back every year to this location; it was that good. CK

The cabin was awesome, it was exactly as described. Carole and her husband were extremely helpful and very proactive with providing me with information about the cabin. I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a great retreat or a place to stay. Thank you for letting us stay in this beautiful. AO

This was a great place to stay. We decided to take a quick family vacation before Christmas and go snow tubing. As soon as we entered the cabin it felt very comfy and inviting. They had a Christmas tree decorated along with other decorations which was great! We had our three boys (ages 21, 19, 14) with my husband and I. Everyone had plenty of room. The dog enjoyed it too! Our first night we saw deer walking in the lot next door. The next morning it snowed a little. I would definitely recommend staying here. The Property Managers made everything an easy process. They checked in with us on our arrival time so the lights and heat would be on for us. Close to restaurants and grocery stores. MG

 My family along with another family stayed at this cabin for a week during the New Year's holiday. The inside of the cabin is very beautiful, spacious, and cozy. The couch in the living room was very comfortable and the fireplace was working just great! The Master Bedroom is spacious and well decorated. The back deck on the main floor is facing East so one can see the sunrise every morning while eating breakfast. I went for a run at 6am and saw deer running around. All appliances were working properly. We will definitely consider this log cabin for our next vacation. We had a wonderful time plus I think the price was right. SA

Great Summer at Alpine Cabin. My wife and I spent the summer (3 months) at this cabin. The Cabin was clean and in perfect condition. It contained all the necessary amenities for a three-month stay. We were able to bring our small dog and she settled right in. This cabin does have the advantage of having a parking area that is level with the roadway. Many other cabins in the area have very steep driveways that are sometimes difficult to negotiate, especially at night. The cabin had pamphlets for all the attractions in the area, as well as a book prepared by the owners that detailed instructions for the use of the internet, TV, appliances, etc. The book also contained a description of all the area restaurants. The cabin was also stocked with games, magazines, and puzzles, and the owners provided free access to Netflix. The cabin is very quiet and peaceful. The road in front of the cabin has a very small amount of traffic since it allows access to only a few homes on the mountain, but the traffic cannot be heard from inside the cabin. The view from the extensive back patio is excellent. Most of the major attractions in this part of the Appalachians are within very short drive from the cabin. We have gotten to know the owners. They go out of their way to make sure guests have everything they need and that the cabin is in tip top shape.We would highly recommend this cabin to families or couples who want a quiet location that is a short drive to hiking, restaurants, shopping, etc. B&G P

Wonderful cabin with great views, close access to hiking, and well stocked. Cabin served us well with 4 adults and 2 tween/teenage girls. Kitchen was well stocked to include basic ingredients for cooking. Maps of all the local hiking areas, brochures, and menus were plentiful. Plenty of space to lounge and play games, we spent every night in the game room as a family. The seasonal decorations were a nice touch. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a lovely cabin with wonderful views. The location is close to all of the area attractions. The cabin is well stocked and full of information on local attractions and restaurants. We enjoyed the fireplace, the game room downstairs and just relaxing on the deck. We played golf at the Boone Country Club, which is beautiful. We also appreciate being able to bring our small dog along, and she had a great time too!  CN
