Secluded cabin for relaxing, yet five minutes from downtown Boone. Write, retreat, hike, ski--it's all within reach. Private studio (duplex), passive solar design, radiant floor heat, big windows, everything you need for going out or staying in.
White Oak Writer's Cabin is a special place with a rural feeling but only 5 minutes from downtown Boone. Tall trees surround the property, creating a feeling of privacy. The cabin is built solidly, tightly holding out the elements, while the big windows (part of the passive-solar design) let in lots of light. The space is conducive to creativity, activity, relaxation.

All activities in the area, from Grandfather Mountain to ski resorts to hiking trails, are near by. Boone is a college town, and App. State helps to give the town sophistication and charm.
Atención a los huéspedes
I am a long-distance host, living two hours from the cabin. I have an ultra-responsible temperament, though, and will do all that I can to ensure that my guests love the cabin and their stay there, much like I love the cabin and the area. I also have all necessary contacts should anything need attention during a guest's stay.

There is Wi-Fi but no cable. Bring your Netflix account and enjoy the flatscreen!
My cabin is very special to me in terms of its location and set-up. I want to attract guests who can respect the property and who will treat it as they would treat their own home. Loud-noise ordinance in force from 10pm-9am (actually, I hope there's never really any "loud noise"! But I ask guests to be mindful of a duplex set-up regarding noise and activity). The cabin should, upon guest departure, be restored to the clean and orderly condition in which the guests found it. Plastic utensils ONLY to be used with the non-stick pots and pans!! Parking in front of the cabin and nowhere else. I ask all guests to be mindful of resource use, trying to conserve, for the good of all, electricity, water, and heat.
I love to hike, be outside, enjoy the beauty of nature. In this regard, I've created a space I'd love to stay in myself! The world's oldest mountains await your footsteps; ski areas offer the best down-hill skiing in NC. ASU provides an additional dimension of intellect and artistry. Plus Boone is trying to catch up with Asheville for the "Beer City, USA" moniker! Have some fun, do some writing, take a break, or go out and see what the area has to offer. The cabin sits in a lovely spot convenient to just about anything you'd like to do.
