About the property

Cabin, 5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 10 Sleeps


This cabin has it all! Sitting on top of 2.8 acres, Ruffin It cabin

is in a very private location

with nothing but silence around you. Enjoy the long range mountain

views from the screened in porch

or the oversized deck.

Buck Mountain also has a fishing pond, hiking, and an outdoor

pavilion with BBQ grills.

Area attractions include: Scott Kerr Dam Lake - 8 miles away, skiing

in Boone - 20 minutes away and

Merlefest and Applefest in Wilkesboro, only 8 miles away! Tweetsie

Railroad is approximately 35

miles away from this cabin and if you want to get to the Blue Ridge

Parkway, you'll only have to

drive 7 miles north on 421 to hop on! Some of our favorite

restaurants are in West Jefferson which

is only 15 miles from the cabin. And don't forget the local wine

vineyards! There are 5 beautiful vineyards off of 421 including our

favorite, Ralfadini.

Don't worry about steep curvy roads! This cabin is very easy to get

to, driving only 8 miles west of

Wilkesboro NC or 15 miles east of Boone NC off of Hwy 421. For those

coming from Charlotte, our

cabin is only an hour and a half away.

Ruffin It cabin is really not ruffin it! It is extremely comfortable

with all the amenities from

home including broadband internet. The cabin inside is constructed in

beautiful tongue and groove

yellow pine and has been furnished and equipped with everything you

need for a great vacation. The

pottery, pictures and knickknacks all go together to give you a

very 'homey' feeling. You will love

this cabin!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family of five just returned from our week stay at Ruffin' It over the New Year's holiday and we couldn't be happier! The cabin is so much better than we expected. Everything was extremely clean and well maintained. The biggest plus for me was that all the dishes and cooking utensils were clean, nothing had to be washed before we used it, which is rare. The cabin was very easy to get to, ideally situated, and very cozy and comfortable. The words can adequately described what a fantastic view this cabin had. We are from the beach, so being in the mountains for a week was a nice change, and having that view, ever changing, to see every morning was just the best! My sister and her husband joined us, so we had 7 adults accommodated very comfortably. The owners do provide towels, but I would recommend brining a couple if you like to use more than one, like me! I think we will definitely try to make it back in warmer weather so we can enjoy the outside space was too cold for us beach dwellers to be out on the deck in the morning for coffee, or at night for dinner! But I can only imagine how much that would add to the whole experience. It was so private and quiet, it was exactly what we needed! And Richard the owner was great to deal with, even called me to make sure we arrived ok...although I unfortunately missed his call..cell phone off! Great experience all around from first inquiry to final check up with Richard. Do yourself a favor and come visit Ruffin' It!

Graduation trip

We had a wonderful time in your home. Everything was in order except the wash clothes, we couldn't seem to find the wash rags so we went and picked up a few at Walmart. Overall the trip was very relaxing. We will be back as soon as we can!! Thanks for letting us rent your beautiful home, Belinda

This was truly a beautiful cabin with everything one would want or need for a great vacation. It felt as if I was walking into my own home. From the minute I booked our vacation till we left I had great communication with the owner which to me is another plus. Not only was the cabin beautiful but the surrounding area was as well. Awesome 4 wheeling trails and the people where very friendly in the area too. The only down side to this cabin would be the stairs if you have trouble climbing them. As for me and my children it was fine, actually some well deserved exercise. LOL Hopefully I will be able to rent this cabin again next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you Gina. Ruffinit Cabin, as a friend told us, is more of a Chalet than a cabin! We believe it's a very special place for many people to enjoy. Thanks for your rental!!
