Very nice cabin with great decor. We loved sitting in the rockers on the front porch and watching the river. Also enjoyed the Valle Crucis Park just up the road. Being able to bring our dog with us made this an ideal getaway. Thank you so much for sharing your cabin with us.

Looking for a Valle Crucis riverfront cabin that is peaceful yet still convenient to everything? Welcome to Bridgepoint Cabin, located right on the Watauga River. Whether you want to step off your porch for fishing and wading, or just rock away the hours while listening to the river roll by, this family vacation rental is for you! The convenient single-level living and flat yard are a plus for families with young children and grandparents alike. Best of all, you are still just five minutes from historic downtown Boone and within a few more minutes of Blowing Rock, Banner Elk, the Blue Ridge Parkway and Grandfather Mountain.
As you approach the cabin across the wooden bridge, look to your left and you are likely to see someone taking advantage of the great trout fishing in this section of the river. A glance to the right and you may see one of the grey herons that frequent this stretch – they are fishing too!
No need to give up your river view when going inside – the open living area overlooks the river. On chilly days, enjoy a fire in the custom gas fireplace while relaxing in the comfortable furnishings, or enjoy a movie on the flat screen television. The open kitchen with tiled counters and backsplash makes meal preparation a snap so you can get back outside for more High Country adventures.
Just off the main living area are two wood-paneled bedrooms. The master has a king bed and television in case you like to wake up with the news or weather. The second bedroom has a lovely wood and scrollwork queen bed. For the extra guest there is also a sleeper sofa in the living room.
In the mornings, we recommend stepping out through the French doors to the covered porch with your coffee and settling in on the porch swing while you watch the mist rise off the river. After breakfast, head just a couple miles down the road and visit the original Mast General Store. After that, why not stop in at the little deli and pick up some sandwiches or a slice of one of their great desserts, then pull in at the popular Valle Crucis Park for a picnic. After lunch, the family can choose their activity – enjoy a stroll or bike ride on the paved paths, let the kids play on the swings, or take advantage of another fishing opportunity – the park offers both river access and a stocked pond for the kids to try, unless they prefer trying to catch one of the large bullfrogs! Summer evenings often offer live Music in the Valle there at the park for a little foot-tapping fun.
That evening, back at Bridgepoint Cabin, walk across the yard to the river and enjoy! Feet sore from all the day's exploring? Just have a seat on the riverbank and soak them in the cool water. There is a shallow section flowing across the rocks where the kids can play, or cast a line into the deeper sections and see if you can catch dinner. There's nothing like firing up the grill for the evening catch. Be sure to save time for a soak in the hot tub as well!
If you plan to catch an Appalachian State University Mountaineers football game – that's right, the ones who were on the cover of Sports Illustrated – or head over to Blowing Rock for Art in the Park or a visit to Tweetsie Railroad, or to the slopes at Appalachian Ski Mountain, Sugar Mountain or tubing at Hawksnest, this cabin provides a great starting point. It is just a short drive to most area attractions and events.
Any time of year, Bridgepoint Cabin in historic Valle Crucis NC is a great home base for your mountain adventures and relaxing retreats.
For larger groups, consider renting this cabin with nearby Hemlock Lodge.
Bridgepoint Cabin has convenient paved access all the way to the driveway.
Depending on the home, 4WD, chains or sometimes both may be required when visiting the mountains in winter. Access to this home may not be suitable for vehicles with rear wheel drive, limited ground clearance, or motorcycles even during summer months. We are happy to help you find the home with the access you are most comfortable with, any time of year!
