Property Description

The quintessential romantic mountain getaway for two!

The following is a true story:

Back in 1997, a certain canine occupant of this log cabin had a bad habit of chasing cars. No level of training could convince this energetic animal that chasing motor vehicles was not conducive to maintaining good health. One day the inevitable happened. The dog was run over by both left tires of an SUV. The driver immediately stopped the car, got out, and walked back to check out the damage. He was stunned to find the dog up on all fours trotting across the road. He finally chased the poor creature down and drove him to the nearest vet where x-rays and a thorough checkup revealed no broken bones and only a small laceration on his inner leg. From that day forward this dog was known as "Rubberdog". He never chased cars again.

Then, just before Christmas 2004, Rubberdog went missing. After several days and countless attempts to locate him, the heartbroken owner suspected the worst and resumed his holiday travel plans to Florida. On Christmas Eve, he received a call from his neighbor who lived across the creek from the little log cabin in the mountains. She had just returned home from visiting with some of her family and found Rubberdog in her upstairs bedroom. This neighbor's house was his second home, and apparently he was accidentally locked in while she was packing for her trip. Rubberdog had survived alone in a bedroom for nine days and nine nights with no food or water. Other than losing a little weight, he was perfectly fine. A photo of Rubberdog is included below.

The Dog House is privately situated on 300 feet of beautiful rushing creek and wooded trails, yet is conveniently located only 4 miles from downtown Boone and ASU, 6 miles from Tweetsie Railroad, 9 miles from Blowing Rock, and only 4 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The poplar logs used to construct the Dog House were cut, dried, milled and then assembled by only two men using a handmade boom and pulley system attached to a huge tree. The cabin was renovated by a professional designer.

The living area features a huge wood burning fireplace with a very unique burl maple mantle. Limited seasoned firewood is provided onsite. A Bose surround sound DVD/CD/VHS/AM/FM entertainment system with HDTV with Roku streaming services and SlingTV for regular programming may be experienced from the living and dining areas and kitchen. High speed 10-mg Internet is provided along with all digital cable channels except pay-per-view. There is a new 42" widescreen LCD TV on the mantle as well a collection of books nearby.

A King size bed provides sleeping accommodations on the upper level with a full bath. Expanded basic remote controlled cable TV provides bedroom entertainment. This eclectic high tech cabin is accented with antiques, quilts, original artwork and photographs. You'll find wonderful details such as kitchen tile imported from France and antique architectural plaster molds hanging above the fireplace and in the kitchen.

The deck is as large as the cabin itself and features a gas grill and Hot Springs spa with moto massage. Stairs lead from the deck onto trails along the creek and through the woods. A stone firepit, improved Spring 2013, with Adirondack chairs awaits you by the creek, where you can relax and enjoy the expanded views of the waterfalls and creek.

So when your friends ask you where you are staying on your next vacation, tell them you are staying "in The Dog House".

Can't beat this location right along a rolling creek with constant waterfall noises that can be heard with all doors and windows closed. Close enough to everything you would need in town yet remote and relaxing. We even got lucky and had a white Christmas in the hot tub. Host provided ample firewood for a few nights which was a nice touch. We highly recommend a visit to Grandfather Mountain!

Great location! We would love to come back again!

The Dog House
By Anna On 12/17/2020
Doghouse is a great spot! We enjoyed the location as it was secluded yet also close to town. We stayed at the house except for errands and a hike, and after getting groceries, we had everything we needed to relax for a few days. The hot tub, fireplace, and fire pit by the creek definitely made the trip!

The Dog House

A wonderful place to getaway in the mountains up near Boone. Incredibly scenic area, and the Dog House perfectly embodies the location. Loved the hot tub, the sound of the creek, the furnishings...and the communication was stellar.

The Dog House is an excellent stay! The hot tub is a major plus. It's cozy and beautiful.

Amazing Cabin!
By K. On 11/16/2020
I can not wait to come back to the doghouse, I researched many rentals before booking and I couldn't have been happier with my decision. This was exactly what we needed in a cabin and was secluded while still being close to many great restaurant's in Boone as well as many great hikes. Everything was clean, the house came with anything you would need and the hot tub was perfect. The stream is beautiful and was the perfect final touch.

Anniversary Aka Parental Break
By Shante On 10/27/2020
After delivering our son seven weeks early and entering into a global pandemic, I knew we would need this trip more than anything. Little did I know that The Dog House was the peace we so needed. From the chaos of an infant and two remote learning children all while working from home for the past several months, this place provided the solitude and space to reconnect with my husband. The fire pit/creek was peaceful, the hot tub was relaxing and the cabin itself was just perfect for the two of us. Everything about this property and this stay was perfect. It was just far enough removed from the bustle of downtown and yet close to so many outdoor adventures. We look forward to coming back in the future.

Cabin! Deck! Hot Tub! Creek! Fire Pit! Wow!!!
By Kelly On 09/04/2020
What a great time we had! Hiking, cooking, relaxing, s'mores, weather, we will be back. It's a first class experience with an owner who could not have been nicer or more attentive and helpful.

By Natalie On 08/20/2020
I cannot say enough about this property and the management company! The place was a beautiful cabin tucked away with peace and quiet, yet so close to many things. The management company was incredible as well! They brought us extra supplies and helped me retrieve my lost wedding band that I accidentally dropped behind a counter. Best stay in the “doghouse” ever!

Great Relaxing Getaway
By Michael On 06/22/2020
It was a great week. Cabin has everything you need. The firepit by the creek is AWESOME. You are able to listen to the water and just enjoy being with the one you love. Boone is a easy 10 minute drive if you need anything. Great location. Peaceful. We will return.

By Kara On 06/17/2020
The Doghouse is super cute and very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The weather was perfect for enjoying the porch, the fire pit down by the stream and the hot tub. Our dog loved being able to lounge on the deck or wade in the stream. The gates on either side of the deck were awesome! The kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment and we made some delicious meals during our stay. Highly recommend!

Must Go!
By Olivia On 06/17/2020
I loved this place. It was exactly what I needed just to getaway and let go of built up stress. It's so close to everything but feels just far enough out to have the peace and quiet

Clean, Quaint, Cozy
By Hannah On 06/16/2020
We had a great visit to the Dog House. The check in process was simple. The house was totally clean. The hot tub was amazing. We loved sitting down by the creek in the Adirondack chairs. The property management was responsive when I had a question prior to the visit. Overall a wonderful visit and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet place to get away from the noise of life.

By Christina On 03/23/2020
Literally had everything we wanted. So happy we stayed there :)

By Matthew On 03/17/2020
Wonderful quite environment for my wife and I to getaway. Online access and emails made logistics very user friendly

By Amanda On 02/26/2020
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Dog House was clean and comfortable with a rustic feel. The cabin was a convenient drive from shopping and food. We loved everything about it. I would highly recommend!

By Guest On 02/07/2020
Our stay could not have been better! The Doghouse is so cozy and inviting. We loved the rustic authenticity of this place...the rushing stream was a perfect backdrop. We hibernated in our pajamas next to the fire most of the long weekend with the exception of making the short trip into downtown Boone for a few groceries, then out to dinner. Our dog Decker loved venturing thru the woods and into the water! The king bed and the couch were both very comfy; also very pleased with the stocked kitchen cookware/dishes/flatware. The hot tub was AMAZING! The Doghouse is the perfect place for R&R. Thank you for for everything! We will definitely be back!

By Sarah On 12/09/2019
Overall great experience! Will definitely be back!

By Nicole On 11/25/2019

By Billy On 10/14/2019
The Doghouse was perfect and your customer service is excellent. This was our second stay there and we will definitely be back!

By Howard On 09/30/2019
This was a wonderful stay. The check in was so easy now that you just go to the property. Saves time and is just simple. The place itself is charming. From a fire pit by the stream to a small but nicely working kitchen. It's so comfortable. The location is ideal. You are not on top of others and yet close enough to town to go enjoy a beer or a meal.

By Heather On 06/25/2019
We had a great time. The house was cozy and clean. We loved the fire pit by the creek and the hot tub.

By Matt On 04/10/2019
If you are a hiker this is a fantastic location, so many trails of every level near by. The dog house is wonderful and charming - perfect place for two to get away with privacy. Fireplace and hot tub are well done. If you are not a dog owner, don't let the name dissuade you, place is clean and the only smell is the hardwood smoke of the fireplace. Kitchen is very well appointed and you can cook anything there as well as a gas grill on the deck. We will return

By Elizabeth ( Hannah Figgins Will Be Staying At Cabin ) On 10/30/2018
This house is absolutely amazing. Everything about it. To the way it looks on the outside to every detail inside. It was the coziest house and felt right at home. My husband and I came on our honeymoon and we had plans to do this and that but we relaxed at the house most the time. It felt like home. Everything was super clean and functioning. The hot tub felt so great with the sound of the steam down the way. Comfy couch and great tv and surround sound. The bathroom was perfect and the the bed was so comfortable. The drive to the house is easy to get to and beautiful and so close to Boone and Blowing Rock. This is our second trip to Boone and for our third we might just be back here one day. Love this house so much.

By Howard On 10/01/2018
Beautiful even in the rain. The Dog House was a lovely house set right down by Winkler's Creek. We were here during a horrendous rain storm and it was stupendous. The kitchen is nice and bright. The fireplace is really beautiful with the maple mantle. It is conveniently located near town so when it was drizzling we could drive in and enjoy a local brewery. Definitely a spectacular few days and a nice, cozy house to enjoy.

By John & Kelly On 09/04/2018
The staff was awesome to work with and were very helpful with all of our questions. The rental was great, clean and stocked with essentials. It was a great first experience.
