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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

Interaction with guests

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.

Other things to note

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.

Virginia's cabin is really nice. We enjoyed our stay there and loved the remote location but still being close to Boone. The cabin provides everything you need for a day to day living. We really enjoyed having coffee and the essentials for being able to (EMAIL HIDDEN)munication with Virginia was very easy and everything turned out as expected. We even met the neighbours above which are really nice people.

The writer's cabin was a wonderful place to spend a weekend in the Boone area! The cabin itself was charming, and the location was perfect. My only regret is that I wasn't able to stay for longer. Would stay again if I'm ever back in the area.

Virginia was a wonderful host and the Writers Cabin the perfect place to get away and unplug for the weekend. The perfect weekend get away for two!

We spent 3 nights in this lovely cabin. The location was perfect for us. Close to Boone, Blowing Rock, hiking trails, etc. I appreciated the coffee and snacks. Nice touch. Having breakfast at the breakfast table in front of that beautiful big window was the perfect way to wake up and get your day started. Thank you for opening up your place to us.

Virginia's writer's cabin is a quaint character filled accommodation, just a few minutes away from downtown Boone, NC. We loved the rustic decor and fantastic collection of classic books and games. We found it well stocked with the necessities and some kitchen/food extras that were unexpected. It is definitely a cozy little nook, for those who are looking for a environmentally conscious and minimalist accommodation. Virginia was great, helpful and fully accommodating. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again if the opportunity presented itself.

Response from Virginia:
Thanks, Sal--I appreciate your feedback! Always looking for ways to strengthen my accommodations! I will also pass along the info about the towels to my housekeeper--the towels were, unquestionably, clean, but could be a matter of only a little time before they might begin to absorb moisture. Spider--yikes! It's a spidery kind of place, and when I was last there, less than a week before you came, I got rid of them, but they work very quickly! And yes, I do say that this is a duplex set-up, though I will go back and look to be sure it's clear that the Cabin is the downstairs of the duplex. Thanks again!

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.
