Welcome to Fernwood Cabin in Deep Gap, home of Doc Watson and his son Merle. Bluegrass fans will no doubt want to visit in the spring for Merlefest which has been held every year in April since 1988 in honor of Merle. Enjoy this quaint cabin retreat perfect for exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway and nearby Boone.

The space

This cozy intimate cabin is perfectly suited for a couple or a single traveler. A well equipped kitchen opens to a living area with a wood burning fireplace and wall hung TV. The curved staircase leads upstairs to a large open loft with queen sized bed, desk area, washer/dryer and powder room. The window seat overlooking the courtyard beckons to relax with a book. Outdoors relax on the front porch with sunset views over the pond or in the private courtyard by the propane fire tower.

Guest access

The entire cabin inside is yours to enjoy. Outdoors be mindful that the pond itself and the bridge belong to the neighbor. Please refrain from exploring the bridge or the far side of the pond by the other homes. However, feel free to take photos and enjoy the pond views!

Lovely small cabin just 10 minutes outside of Boone. Was perfect for a couple and not difficult to reach at all.

I spent the weekend here and I left feeling rested. It is a great home for a getaway and there was nothing extra I could have wished for.

Very clean and well organized. I know we were the first ones to ever use the weber grill! It has everything a couple could use. Make sure you are able to climb stairs. The MBR in up the stairs. Ask if the fireplace is working before you use it. I sure Diane will have it sorted very quickly. She is very responsive and easy to work with. It two couples want to use this place you better know one another very well. I would suggest just two guest is best! Love that is it close to the Parkway.

Highly recommend staying at Fernwood Cabin - cute, clean and a great location (only a 10 minute drive to downtown Boone). Diane is a very responsive host, and answered any and all questions I had promptly. She also accommodated our request for an early check-in. My boyfriend and I stayed for a long weekend and did not want to leave! We will definitely be back.
