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.
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.
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!
