Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent all of the summer of 2005 renovating this cabin. We think it turned out great. It is cozy and comfortable and you can't beat the location. Very private yet, close to so many attractions. Beautiful. Mark and Patti Gray (owners)

cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5
Description of the cabin was accurate, but the photos don't do it justice. It is much cozier than it looks. Very clean and warm. We had the greatest meals on the deck in the trees. Nice wrap around deck and partly covered. We hiked the trails with the happy, happy dog. Owner was great and always helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone seeking some peace and quiet, but plenty to do in the area. Must recommend the Screamin' zip line tour. The guys running it are just great and views are neat. Last line is 2,000 feet long with speeds at around 60 miles per hour. Had dinner at the Canyons. Nothing fancy, but good food, NC Speckled Trout and great views of Linville Gorge.

Perfect mountain getaway!

This cabin is simply amazing! It was just right for a get away. Super clean, secluded and cozy. If you're fortunate enough to be there while it snows...you'll never want to leave. We will definitely be staying here again!

A tree house in the woods

  • 5 of 5
First, one must expect a "cabin in the woods" for this one certainly is. Yet, it is not far off the BRP and is near Blowing Rock. And as mentioned in previous reviews, the driveway is steep. That being said, this cute little rustic cabin sparkled- clean, neat and as described. A few minor issues occurred to which the owner quickly responded.

The balcony sits amidst the trees and is enclosed by railings so our dogs could sit out with us. We probably could have sat on the balcony in the rocking chairs for the entire visit because it is so private and so peaceful. There are several hikes nearby off the BRP which we enjoyed. We ate at a delightful restaurant in Blowing Rock, Six Pence" and visited Mast General Store in Boone (the store is a good 40" away)which is a delightful old fashion general store, ancient oak flooring and penny candy to boot.

One thing of concern was that we could not use our cell phones. However, there is a phone in the cabin for local calls.

We have already spoken with the owners about returning... so yes, I would definitely recommend this vacation rental.

Trust me, go here!

This place was great! Cozy as could be, clean as a whistle and well maintained.
Heck, even the igniter on the grill worked!
Location is basically "relaxation squared", quiet and beautiful.
Convenient to town, which was mighty handy because I all together forgot to bring the provision box! A run to the Food Lion and ABC store in Blowing Rock solved that problem, but in all honesty, had I not forgotten the grub, we'd have stayed right there at the cabin the whole time.
The Gray Escape is certainly money well spent, a great value, and I look forward to visiting again!

Excellent Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this cabin last weekend and had an awesome time! The cabin is very cozy and clean so I felt right at home. The owner was very nice throughout the whole process and nice to work with. We went on the Boone Fork Loop hiking trail and had a great time. Lots of nice scienery!! All attractions like Grandfather Mountain and Blowing Rock are near by and for golf lovers, one of the nicest golf courses I have ever seen is within miles away! I do recommend visiting the Mast General Store and Linville Falls and Caverns. I would highly recommend the "Gray Escape" to anyone looking for a great place to stay!

Would do it again

  • 5 of 5
John & I had the best vacation. The cabin was quaint, clean and everything you would need was provided. We were warm and cozy the whole time too. We loved to sit on the wrap around porch and enjoy nature. It was just like sitting in a treehouse. I've already recommended this retreat to several of our friends.
