Amazing Stay At Apple Cove

We had a 2 week stay at Apple Cove visiting our son from the UK. Wow what an amazing property. The views were breathtaking we really didn’t want to leave. Everything was perfect inside and out. We used the hot tub daily & enjoyed the fireflies lighting up the evening sky. There is nothing negative to say. We hope to return next year! Thank you.

Cozy Cabin with Great View of a Horse Farm!

Cheryl M. from CARY, NC,
Stayed 9 days ending November 2021

Spent a much needed week of relaxation at Apple Cove. Was our first time there but we will definitely be back. The kitchen had all you needed (we made all our meals there), the beds were comfortable, and the hot tub was amazing! It was a bit rainy while we were there so we didn't use the outdoor fire pit, but it looked like the perfect place to build a fire and watch the stars! Maybe next time!

I've been going to Apply Cove yearly for around 5 years now and my friends I go with have been going for over 10 years to this little cabin. It's a nice get-a-way from everything, in the middle of nowhere. Very peaceful location to sit out by the fire pit drinkin' and telling stories.

We ran away from Election Day and had a wonderful adventure at the cabin and enjoyed all the surrounding activities..( grandfather mountain-blowing rock-alpine coaster-grandfather vineyard - lindell waterfalls -mast store-cone memorial park).

The cabin was homey and comfortable..great fireplace and fire pit, very clean, not one thing was missing from the kitchen— it was equipped with
everything- I mean everything-we needed for our stay and more!!!

The whole process renting was painless and so efficient..the staff was always friendly,helpful,and always available.

We would come back in a minute..

We love this cabin.. Always neat and clean! We visit at least twice a year. It a peaceful place to visit! Great locations... away from the busy chaos but close enough to visit the surrounding towns if you want. The cabin is alway equipped with everything you need! And love the New Hot tub and updated appliances. It finally snowed a lot this time and it was beautiful!! Thanks for clearing the roads early that morning so we were able to leave. But we also love coming up in the Spring or Fall so we can hang out by the fire pit and play corn hole. So many great options with this cabin! We love it can't go wrong!

We love the Little Bavaria community. And Apple Cove cabin is our favorite! Nestled on a hill overlooking a rushing stream and horse pastures, the view is gorgeous and soothing to the soul. Cozy, clean with everything we needed for a fun weekend. Well appointed kitchen. We will look forward to returning again!

Wonderful Vacation Rental

I’m very glad that I booked this cabin for me and my family‘s extended weekend stay near Boone. The cabin is in a great location you can get to Boone in 15 minutes but you’re also not that far from grandfather mountain in Banner elk. The property was very clean and had everything you could need. We really enjoyed the hot tub the indoor fireplace, and most of all that the property overlooks a horse pasture. The cabin is one of several owned by this rental company, each cabin has plenty of space around it so that you feel secluded but also safe that you’re not too far in the middle of nowhere. This cabin in particular had one of the best views in my opinion.

Overall the cabin was satisfactory. The main floor bathroom needs updating, and the furniture in the living area was uncomfortable. Bath and kitchen towels need replacing. The scenery was beautiful and the grounds are well maintained.

Our stay here was really nice. The cabin was wonderful and spacious for the four of us. The fire pit was fun for making s'mores and hotdogs and the big yard was well utilized. We all loved watching the horses grazing in the next pasture. The hot tub was fun and we did some hiking all around the development and along the pond. Tweetsie and the town restaurants nearby were all in close enough proximity to be able to enjoy during our stay as well. The cabin was sparkling clean when we arrived and the check in staff were all very helpful and friendly.

Overall our stay at Apple Cove in Vilas, NC, just outside of Boone, was great.
The home was in a perfect location, was clean and in good shape and the vacation rental management staff at Valle Crucis Log Cabin Rentals was professional and helpful as usual. We will keep going back.

Apple Cove: Great family spot

Jeremy H. from WILSON, NC
Stayed 5 days ending September 2019

For our family’s first mountain vacation we stayed at Apple Cove. Our boys loved eating meals on the outside breakfast bar overlooking the horse pasture and valley below. After each day’s adventure, we enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings. The cabin was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked for use. The grill was clean and worked well. To get to the cabin, the various routes are scenic and enjoyable. We would easily stay there again.

I think next time we are going to get a larger house and take more friends. Its so close to Boone with shopping and breweries and wineries.

Thanksgiving Get Away

Sandra M. from Concord, North Carolina,
Stayed 4 days ending December 2019

We have been renting from Valle Crucis Log Cabin Rentals for approximately 10 years or more and have always had an excellent experience. We are particularly partial to the pastoral views and peaceful surroundings found at the Little Bavaria.
This year we stayed in Apple Cove which was well stocked and comfortably appointed. It is a great property for both indoor and outdoor entertaining. A total of 14 friends and family arrived for the day to share in a Thanksgiving feast. My concerns that it would be to crowded were quickly put to rest. Ease of access to the loft and many porches, covered and uncovered as well as the open floor plan had everyone comfortably situated.

Many thanks to the friendly and professional staff of Valle Crucis Log Cabins who went the extra mile to get us checked in early.

Awesome experience!

Very nice cabin in quiet pastoral setting. On 1+ acres of land in a community of rental log cabins. Well maintained and very nice place. Very well appointed. Plenty big for 6 people, even though we were only two. Saw horses on the neighboring property every day. Also saw a deer and rabbit in our back yard. Would definitely return.
