“Fantastic views!”
Reviewed 27 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

If you want to be out of the hustle of the city, this is the spot for you. Very nice home with that rustic cabin feel. Has everything you need for your home away from home. Our little ones loved the fire pit for roasting marshmallows and hot dogs. There is a canoe for visitors to use, the kids loved that as well. The view was beautiful and it was interesting to see how the weather can change around the tops of the mountains. It's a pretty drive out of Boone back to where the home is located. Winding roads with a gradual incline so drive carefully. I would advise you to make a menu for each day as well as snack and desserts and any adult beverages you want and get it all at one time because it's not a short trip back to the store. There's a cute little country store about 5 miles down the road but they are not open late and have limited items. It's owned by a very nice couple and they have a little area where they serve food. The home is centrally located to a lot of points of interest. Our family had a great spring break!

Yes, it is a beautiful place with gorgeous views. Thank you for all your kind words, they are most appreciated. The fire pit and canoe are added touches for any family to enjoy. Its an easy drive to Boone with plenty of shopping options from speciality wine to Wal-mart. Boone also offers great restaurants, live music and family entertainment. There's several little country stores around the lake where you can grab a bite to eat and purchase limited groceries. Lots to do in about any direction so come up and enjoy sometime soon!

“Beautiful and Relaxing”

We just returned home from out 7nights/8 days at this beautiful cabin. This was our most relaxing vacation and our first time in this area and in a cabin. I would recommend this cabin to anyone. Large open floorplan, great for kids and your pets. We brought our dog with us. The kids loved the firepit for s'mores. Area is very quiet and going out in the canoe that your provided with the cabin is so nice. The road that leads to the driveway is pretty steep but it is paved so you get used to it. We were in a mini-van which was very challenging to turn around in the lower driveway but we made it work. All together it was a very relaxing vacation and we look forward to going again.

“Great Family and Pet House”

We just returned from Butler TN where we stayed at Hidden Cove on Draft Road. It was a terrific home, pet friendly and clean. The view of the lake was very nice and the setting was peaceful. The walk up the hill from Dock B was only .2 miles but was pretty steep. A good workout. The kitchen was well supplied with cooking equipment. Make sure to bring your own lake play stuff like inflatables because the house didn't have any. We had an issue that needed maintenance that was taken care of promptly. The mounted head on the wall provided loads of laughs. The kids are already asking if we can go back.

So glad you enjoyed your stay here at the Banjo Ridge cabin on alakecabin4u It is adorable and the housekeeper does an excellent job of keeping the place really clean. She was very thankful for the nice gratuity that you left her and sends a big thank you back. Its a really private place, so you feel like your a million miles away but town is just 25 minutes down the road with grocery stores, shops etc .. Loved the pictures you emailed of the deer and turkeys those woods are just full of them.
Thank you again for your kind words. Know you are welcome back anytime. Bookmark and reference alakecabin4u
