2 Thumbs (And a Head's!) -Up
We loved our stay at Bearbones! The cabin is beautiful and interesting. And the location is just far enough away to feel relaxing, while still being close enough to easily get to dowtown Boone, Blowing Rock, the Mast General Store, Grandfather Mountain, the Blue Ridge Parkway, etc. The hot tub is great and is set back in a tiny forest of rhododendrons. It would be perfect for a small family. I would HIGHLY recommend this cabin, however, there are just a few things that you probably need a "heads-up" on. The walls and floors sound paper thin, so you can hear anything anyone in the other bedroom does or says. We had to get ear plugs. And there are no outlets in the bathrooms, so you have to blowdry your hair in the bedrooms. Definitely not something to keep you from renting this place, but just that you might want to be prepared for. Otherwise, we had no complaints. We'd definitely rent it again!
