About Us

YOUR HOSTS…

HI, WE ARE HEATHER & JONATHAN OWNERS OF
THE AIN’T LIFE GRAND CABIN

We​ ​feel​ ​there​ ​is​ ​just​ ​something​ ​about​ ​the​ ​mountains​ ​that​ ​is​ ​good​ ​for​ ​the​ ​soul,​ ​we started​ ​vacationing​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Blue​ ​Ridge​ ​Mountains​ ​as​ ​a​ ​young​ ​married​ ​couple​ ​nearly​ ​8 years​ ​ago​ ​after​ ​we​ ​were​ ​stationed​ ​at​ ​Camp​ ​Lejeune,​ ​which​ ​is​ ​the​ ​United​ ​States Marine​ ​Corps​ ​base​ ​on​ ​the​ ​coast​ ​of​ ​NC.

Military​ ​life,​ ​while​ ​it’s​ ​a​ ​blessing,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​also​ ​not​ ​an​ ​easy​ ​life.​ ​When​ ​we​ ​need​ ​a​ ​break from​ ​it​ ​all,​ ​we​ ​could​ ​have​ ​hit​ ​the​ ​beach,​ ​which​ ​was​ ​only​ ​20​ ​minutes​ ​away,​ ​but​ ​any chance​ ​we​ ​had​ ​to​ ​get​ ​away,​ ​we​ ​found​ ​ourselves​ ​driving​ ​west.

We​ ​frequently​ ​vacationed​ ​the​ ​Boone​ ​area​ ​for​ ​over​ ​5 ​years,​ ​until​ ​one​ ​day​ ​we​ ​finally realized​ ​this​ ​is​ ​it,​ ​this​ ​is​ ​the​ ​area​ ​we​ ​will​ ​someday​ ​call​ ​home.​ ​​ Not​ ​by​ ​chance​ ​but by​ ​Gods​ ​plans​ ​worked​ ​out​ ​in​ ​our​ ​life​ ​he​ ​blessed​ ​us​ ​with​ ​this​ ​heavenly​ ​cabin.

Every​ ​time​ ​we​ ​come​ ​back​ ​and​ ​look​ ​out​ ​onto​ ​those​ ​mountains​ ​we​ ​look​ ​at​ ​each​ ​other and​ ​say​ ​we​ ​never​ ​want​ ​to​ ​leave,​ ​someday​ ​when​ ​we​ ​retire​ ​from​ ​the​ ​United​ ​States Marine​ ​Corps​ ​this​ ​will​ ​be​ ​our​ ​forever​ ​home.

Our​ ​purpose​ ​in​ ​buying​ ​this​ ​cabin​ ​was​ ​so​ ​that​ ​we​ ​could​ ​build​ ​memories​ ​with​ ​our children,​ ​friends​ ​and​ ​family​ ​for​ ​years​ ​to​ ​come​ ​and​ ​bless​ ​other​ ​families​ ​by​ ​sharing this​ ​beautiful​ ​place​ ​with​ ​them​ ​when​ ​they​ ​come​ ​to​ ​visit​ ​the​ ​area.

It’s​ ​already​ ​brought​ ​us​ ​so​ ​many​ ​beautiful​ ​memories,​ ​it would be a pleasure to host you and help your mountain vacation dreams come true. 

We pride ourselves on providing truly a unique and custom experience for our guests, we know how much time, money and planning goes into making trips like this happen. I can assure you we do not take that lightly. 

We poured every ounce of heart into this cabin. It meant everything to reflect our love for nature, mountain life and our passion for design and the modern yet rustic lifestyle. We hope you find our cabin to be thoughtfully renovated, designed and decorated by us to make for a comfortable, home away from home kind of stay. 

Every vacationer deserves a luxury experience and thats what we provide.

Since becoming hosts 3 years ago we have been rated 5 stars on all booking sites, Awarded SuperHost Status on AIRBNB & HomeAway.  Airbnb even featured our cabin in their AIRBNB Magazine, a true honor. 

It would be a pleasure to host you and look forward to the opportunity  to create that dream vacation you are looking for.

Sincerely​ ​Your​ ​Friends, 

Jonathan​ ​&​ ​Heather
