Top 6 Vacation Rentals In Boone, North Carolina, USA - Updated 2023

vacation rentals in boone nc

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. The historic, culture-rich Boone is known for its share of Appalachian storytellers and bluegrass musicians. 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. In fact, downtown Boone has some fine, brick-broad, low-rise Colonial Revival and art-deco architecture and buildings. So, where should culture buffs visiting Boone stay in this charming city? Here are some amazing vacation rentals in Boone.

1. Centrally located studio apartment (from USD 106)

If you want a vacation rental in Boone that’s not only centrally located but also close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the hiking trails, then this light-filled studio apartment which is a five-minute walk from King Street is perfect. Not only is this place 5 to 15 miles from the ski resorts but also it is a walking distance from the ASU campus, all downtown restaurants and bars, as well as shops.

The apartment itself is a cosy space with a queen and a sofa bed, a full bath with essential amenities, a fully equipped kitchen, as well as entertainment amenities such as a smart TV and Wi-Fi. A neat, well-equipped space with an unbeatable location makes this vacation rental a great win.
