The space
Originally built in 1970, the A-Frame got a facelift in August of 2019. We opted to infuse the cabin with a modern feel while preserving it's original charm and 70's era quirks. Clean paint and bright lighting have enhanced the angles, beams and stonework through out highlighting App A-Frame's rustic beginnings. The entire home has been stocked with fresh bedding and bath linens to make your stay as cozy as possible.

Don't let the exterior deceive you! App A-Frame has three spacious levels, each with a bedroom and bathroom to offer privacy to our guests. The front entrance located on the main level features the first bedroom with a Queen bed. A full bath along with the kitchen, dinning and main living areas are also on this floor. Off of this living room we have a large deck with a 6 person hot tub, out door dining area and gas grill. The second bedroom is located upstairs in the loft, has a half bath and it's own balcony facing the woods. The third bedroom and second full bath are located downstairs on the lower level. This bedroom has four beds with two being on trundles and is perfect for the kids. The basement also has a living area with wet bar and a Multicade featuring 60 of your favorite classic arcade games like Ms. Pac Man, Donkey Kong, and Galaga just to name a few.

Both living areas are equipped with Smart TV's that have access to Netflix and Direct TV along with gas log fireplaces - perfect places to curl up for movie night or enjoy the big game!

App A-Frame is located on two private acres that have just enough room to explore the surrounding woods, play a game of corn hole or enjoy an evening around the fire.

The cabin is a short 15 minute drive into Valle Crucis, home of the original Mast General Store, Valle Crucis Community Park and our favorite restaurant Over Yonder. Banner Elk is also just 15 minutes away and it takes only 20 minutes to get to ASU Campus if you are in town to cheer on The Mountaineers. Family fun in Blowing Rock like Tweetsie Railroad and High Gravity are slightly farther out at just under 30 minutes.

If you feel like taking a field trip the house is conveniently located to many outdoor attractions. We are just a 6 minute drive away from Watauga River Gorge Park for tubing, fishing or swimming. Watauga Lake is a half hour away for a fun day trip filled with more water sports, picnics or hiking and horseback riding through Cherokee National Forest. Snow skiing and snow tubing are within a 30 minute drive at Beech & Sugar Mountain.

Whether you are looking for a cozy weekend getaway to rest and recharge your batteries or a fun, adventure filled visit to the beautiful North Carolina Mountains we’ve got you covered!

Guest access

Hey, there! We're John and Emily South. Two Ohio kids who hightailed it to NC after graduating from Ohio University over a decade ago. In that time we've gotten married, bought three fixer-uppers, started a family business ( (Website hidden by Airbnb) , rescued two pups and made three rather cool kids of our own. Early in our marriage we fell in love with the NC Mountains and said someday we'd have our own place there. We can't believe that day is here and we are so excited to share our sweet little A Frame with you, your family and friends - all are welcome here.
