About the property

Beautiful loft with deck overlooking valley

Located in the beautiful John River Gorge, between Blowing Rock and Grandfather Mountain, GLOBE VALLEY RANCH is 'where the pavement ends' and your dream vacation begins. Our family began our dream of building quaint mountain cabins with the purchase of 117 acres on the Johns River in 2005. The Johns River and the Pisgah National Forest border our property and offer a beautiful, tranquil setting to be enjoyed in all seasons!

We proudly offer our brand new 1000 square ft loft over the timber framed barn with 2 bedrooms and one bath. The loft has a BBQ and play area. We rent on a daily or weekly basis. We invite you to listen and observe the abundant wildlife on our pristine acreage and enjoy total relaxation on the deck that overlooks 8 acres cleared on the Johns River. You may also enjoy a hike down by the Johns River to 'wet a hook'. Our vacation destination offers a wide range of outdoor activities for the adventure enthusiasts during spring, summer, fall or winter.

We have another log cabin for rent on the property check out VRBO#312356.

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

We booked this barn cabin at the last moment. From the pictures we were attracted to its location, river accessibility and swing set. We were not to excited because the listing shows no internet connection however we found that it does. The cabin is much more than what is shown/described in the listing. It was clean and well furnished.. The views are amazing with the James River (good fishing/tubing) a few yards down hill. We spent time around the cabin for the most part but we did visit Wilson's Creek (great place and highly recommend). We also spent a day in Blowing Rock on our way back home. The owners were very responsive. Our first night a storm knocked out the electricity. At first we were concerned because we had no cell-phone reception and the LAN phones were cordless. However we noticed they had an analog phone, candles, owner phone numbers and flashlights for emergencies. We dialed up the owner and within 1 hour had the power restored. Overall we were really impressed and will be back.

Very Nice!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very, very, nice & cute loft. We loved the smell of wood work every time we entered through the front door. It was very convenient that it was fully furnished. We would definitely rent this property again. We spent a lot of time on in hopes that we would find a nice rental. Boy, did we hit the jackpot!!! We can't wait to go back. The property is very nice as well. Surrounded by mountains, a river runs through it, very beautiful & peaceful!

Great cabin and beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend at the loft at Globe Valley and would definitely be back again. The loft was clean and cozy. The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked at home both nights we were there. The wood stove kept the place nice and cozy. There was plenty of wood in the cabin to use on the stove, for which we were grateful. The property is beautiful and we enjoyed exploring around. We would definitely stay here again if we're back in the area!

Perfect Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The loft was better then expected. Opened the car door and let the dog and kids off the leash(JK). The loft is clean and spacious. Beds are comfortable. We spent most of our time in the river fishing, tubing, swimming ect. Hiked up the hill next to the loft and found some trails and wild turkeys. We used the fire pit area every night. The kids loved it. We had a great time and can't wait to come back.
