3 Bedroom 2 Bath Private Log Cabin Minutes From Boone And Blowing Rock
About Diane Kradel
Currently we live in the Charlotte area in Huntersville, NC with our Devon Rex kitties and have enjoyed the beautiful climate and bright blue skies since 2009. We enjoy working in real estate and that led to our first cabin purchase in the Boone area in 2016. That cabin we named Laurelwood and Fernwood, purchased months later is our second cabin with a third one, Tanglewood, purchased the fall of 2017 and has been available for reservations since February of 2018.
Diane Kradel purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Diane Kradel chose Boone
Laurelwood's charm may be in its private setting while still being close to all the sights in nearby Boone and Blowing Rock. But for us what sealed the deal is the outdoor space. Its perennial gardens, space for a cutting garden and water feature were a hit with our daughter, a horticulturist. Feel free to meander the grounds, water the flowers, bring cuttings inside and search for the frogs in the pond.
What makes this Cabin unique
Our goal is for your stay at Laurelwood to both relax and refresh you. With a cozy fireplace, a hot tub to soak in and plenty outdoor areas to enjoy the natural beauty you may not want to leave. The large screen TV is perfect for watching football, a movie or playing a video game. If you prefer the outdoors check out Laurelwood's garden spaces and enjoy the fire pit and hot tub or just reading a book on the front porch.

Secluded and beautiful, yet close to town!
What a great property. The problem we had is we couldn't stay longer. The cabin is quiet and peaceful with a huge TV and clean/new hot tub. But is minutes away from Blue Ridge Parkway, Blowing Rock, and Boone.
A great place for a family getaway, hopefully we will be back soon.
Peaceful getaway- Great place to get comfortable with nature: deer, frogs, hummingbirds, wild turkey
Laurelwood met all expectations and exceeded many. Beautifully situated in the mountains outside of Boone, yet convenient to shopping and sightseeing. We had a good bit of rain (typically Boone weather), but Laurelwood was a great place to sip a glass of wine, listen to distant mountain thunder, and gently swing on the front porch. Will be back!
Day out with Thomas at the Tweetsie Railroad
Our weekend was great despite the horrible weather! How nice to have the beautiful cabin to retreat to in all the rain we had! A I was so pleased at how kid friendly the place is. The mountain roads had my son-in-law on the edge of his seat but the truck to and from the cabin just added to the adventure! I will definitely be renting here again!
Secluded, yet close to everything!
Home was extremely clean and well appointed. The kitchen was well stocked and the hot tub and outdoor water feature were a fantastic bonus! We felt like we were in a nice, quiet and secluded area, yet we could drive to downtown Boone in less than 10 minutes, which was awesome! The owner was very kind and always quick to respond. The home was just perfect for our girls’ getaway!
Wonderful experience with owner. Very accommodating! Diane goes above and beyond to make sure your visit is excellent.
The cabin is very clean and inviting. Our two grandsons loved the tent in their bedroom and all of the toys. Many special touches to make you feel at home.
Perfect get away in the mountains
Very serene location with beautiful views. The home was well-stocked with anything you could ask for and more. Very close to things to do ... we went zip-lining at Hawksnest, and spent a few hours at Grandfather Mountain, and enjoyed a drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway. And we enjoyed sitting on the front porch enjoying the peace and quiet :)
