The Briar Patch brings an enchanting mix of rustic nostalgia and modern comforts creating a harmonious aesthetic. Take in the river views while sitting out on the porch swing and curl up by the stone fireplace in the vaulted living room.
“This was the nicest cabin we've ever stayed in around Boone (and we've stayed in a lot!). Gorgeously decorated and had everything we could want in it. It is particularly nice that the 'master' bedroom is in its own little cottage. The isolated location can't be beat - we loved the river below and watching the cows on the hill across the river from the front porch. Yet you are close to Valle Crucis and Boone. Lots of breezes came through and rustled the leaves - a very peaceful sound. Our kids enjoyed the fire pit too. The outdoor dining table was a favorite - perfect weather in the summer to eat dinner there. Highly recommend and hope we can return!”

“The views are out of this world! Location is spot on. You can walk down to the chair lifts and enjoy a cold brew at the brewery. Carl was very attentive and responsive. We couldn’t get the hot tub to start and I emailed Carl after 5pm. He was already on his way to assist when we got it started. Hospitality at its finest! We will definitely be returning in the future!”
We welcome guests to enjoy the beauty of the North Carolina mountains from our newly built farmhouse set on a hillside in the heart of historic Valle Crucis. The house can accommodate 8 guests with a maximum of 6 adults in 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms. The 4th bedroom is a small “kids room” with twin beds. There’s a main level master suite with private bath and walk-in shower. A modern kitchen and open concept living space is inviting for friends and family to gather. We invite you to visit!
“Our family loved this home. It was so peaceful and the views sitting on the back porch were quiet and beautiful. The house itself is perfectly furnished for a home in the mountains and the fireplace made the home cozy and warm. Personal touches abound in the home and everything you could need and more have been supplied by the hosts. Our family consisted of 4 adults and three children and we were very comfortable. The location is perfect in that both Boone and Blowing Rock are close by and access to hiking trails and area attractions is ample, yet Valle Crucis is removed from all of the busy traffic and you feel like you have your own personal retreat. The children had a great time exploring around the house and walking down the hill to look at the cows. All in all, this is one of the our favorite places to stay and we have stayed at several Airbnb homes around the world. John and Catherine, our hosts, were very responsive and accommodated our requests. We had booked the home for three nights, but were blessed to be able to stay two more nights due to a cancellation. We are looking forward to planning our next visit to this lovely home and hope to come back many times in the future.”
