Valle Crucis, Boone NC Cabin Rental


We are happy to welcome back Papa’s View formerly Bee’s Knees! The cabin has been completely rebuilt after a devastating fire in July 2019. The only thing you will find the same as before is the ground the cabin sits on. The owners have tried to keep the floor plan and integrity of the original cabin in virtually all aspects except ... now it's much better!
You’ll find four queen bedrooms with private baths, two on the main floor and two upstairs. The kitchen/dining room, family room with wood burning fireplace and wet bar as well as an additional half bath are all on the main floor. The décor is light and airy with a very open feel.
Outside are spacious decks, hot tub and abundant furniture for you to relax in and enjoy the view. A dining table and gas grill are also present for your outside dining pleasure.

Our Favorite Mountain Getaway

Beverly R. from Cary, NC
Stayed 4 days ending August 2022

We returned to Valle Crucis, and in particular, Papa's View because of the great location, tasteful accommodations, and it is very dog friendly. Valle Crucis park is great (and close by) if you have kids and/or dogs.

Our first mountain family vacation

Cameron D. from Conway, SC, Unknown
Stayed 2 days ending December 2021

Our family came to visit Tweetsie’s Railroad and show our twin girls the mountains for the first time. Great experience! The house is beautiful and had everything and more we could ask for during our stay! There were deer right outside the house several times! The porch was a favorite spot! Overall it was a wonderful experience and we plan to return!

You will love it!

This house is so beautiful! The kitchen is so wonderful & has everything you will need! We loved our week here & my family loved it so much, they want to stay here again! If you have young children, there is a gorgeous community park nearby! Stay here, you’ll be glad you did,

Beautiful weekend at Papa's View!

We had a wonderful experience staying in Papa's View! The cabin was beautiful and very well maintained/clean, with nice appointments throughout. We will definitely be back.

I would have preferred a contactless check-in as opposed to stopping at the office. However, the property management company was very friendly and helpful.

Gorgeous Getaway

Christy M. from Sugar Hill, GA
Stayed 3 days ending May 2022

I’m not sure if you can fall in love with a house, but I came pretty close here! Absolutely gorgeous cabin. Well stocked and high end finishes. The hot tub was relaxing and we saw deer, hummingbirds, chipmunks, and other cute wildlife. Very close and convenient to Mast general store, Boone and Blowing Rock. Can’t say enough good things about this home.

Great place

So Wonderful We Didn't Want to Go Home

Beverly R. from Cary, NC
Stayed 4 days ending August 2021

Papa's View is a beautifully appointed mountain home -- secluded yet close to Valle Crucis Park and the Mast General Store. It was an easy drive to Blowing Rock, Boone, and Banner Elk. We had a picture perfect stay. We would definitely stay here again!

Mountain retreat

Anonymous from Durham, NC
Stayed 7 days ending August 2021

Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful mountain retreat with us. It was the perfect house for our weeks vacation. Close to Boone, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk so didn’t have to go far for things to do or for food. The house was very clean and very well stocked in the kitchen. So nice that we decided to cook instead of eating out the whole time. The management company was good to work with and got back to us quickly when needed. We would diffidently rent agin!

I want to live here!

Carol B. from Greensboro, NC,
Stayed 2 days ending July 2021

Papa's View is a gorgeous home, conveniently located to everything fun to do in the High Country. Perfect for our (adult) needs but not sure it's as suitable for families with kids.

Peaceful stay in a gorgeous, brand new cabin. Cabin was beautifully furnished and appointed. We had everything we could possibly need. The only comment I have is it could maybe use more towels.
