Top 8 Vacation Rentals In Boone, North Carolina, USA - Updated 2024

| 5 min read

Named after the famous explorer and pioneer Daniel Boone, the lively mountain town of Boone in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina is home to the Appalachian State University and, hence, has a predominantly youthful populace. Ski-in ski-out accommodations dot the slopes, promising adventures to Boone’s winter visitors. The historic, culture-rich town is known for its share of Appalachian storytellers and bluegrass musicians and is one of the best romantic getaways for couples. It is even more so famous for hosting ‘Horn in the West’, an outdoor amphitheatre drama every summer since 1952 - a dramatisation of the Colonial settlement in the region during the American Revolutionary War. Downtown Boone has some fine, brick-broad, low-rise Colonial Revival and art-deco architecture and buildings.
