Jefferson cabin description

Accommodations: Log sided wooden cabin, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (sleeps 6) Mountain Hideaway, located near Laurel Springs, NC, is a great gateway to a memorable mountain vacation in North Carolina’s Great Smoky Mountains. This cabin was completed in 2008, and is ready to welcome you to the Appalachian Mountains for a long weekend, a week, or even a month to get away from it all.

The Perfect Escape offers a roomy upper-level master bedroom with a Queen sized bed, its own flat screen TV, and your own bathroom. There are two other upper-level bedrooms that share a bathroom, one with a Queen sized bed, and one with bunk beds for the kids. There is an upper-level deck with very nice views of mountains, a gas grill, and two wooden rockers and a small table for sitting and enjoying the views, the cool air, and the fresh clean smell of the surrounding forest. Additional amenities include a four place spa on the lower deck with a table and chairs for relaxing while not enjoying the hot tub, a gas burning fireplace in the sitting area with a flat screen TV above the fireplace, two comfortable sofas, and a lounge chair. There are also two wooden rockers on the front porch for enjoying the views on that side of the cabin, and a large basement area with ping pong, air hockey, a basketball game, and a card table with six chairs, as well as a separate full sized bathroom, all on the same level as the lower wooden deck and spa.

In Ashe County NC you can enjoy virtually any outdoor activity you can think of. Everything from fishing, biking, hiking, whitewater rafting, to skiing and golf can be found in and around Ashe County. Kayaking the New River is as easy as traveling the short distance to Riverside Kayak and Bike Rentals where they have kayaks, tubes, bikes, and horses. More adventurous activities can be found by rafting the Watauga or Nolichucky Rivers, spelunking the Linville Caverns, or hiking the Linville Gorge, all of which are within 50 minutes of Jefferson. And, don't miss the most visited destination in NC, Grandfather Mountain, with its mile high swinging bridge, the animal park, and more. The Blue Ridge Parkway is a favorite spot for many people. You can look out over the many overlooks and see miles and miles of the Blue Ridge Mountains across North Carolina, Virginia, and Tennessee. Enjoy biking, hiking, camping, and many other activities. An entrance to The Blue Ridge Parkway is only 3 miles from the cabin.

                              The Perfect Escape is located 8 miles from downtown Jefferson, NC where you will find supplies at the Food Lion, and great Mexican Dinning at Tamale’s and Southern style food at the Winner’s Circle. Drive 4 miles further and you will discover a well-kept secret in the re-invented downtown West Jefferson where you will find everything from fine dining at the Boondocks Brewery, The Hotel Tavern, and Black Jack’s Bar and Grill, to the Bohemia Cafe for your cafe latte, Happy Days for your ice cream fix, numerous art galleries, the Cheese Factory, and many other shops for your shopping pleasures.

                              Treat yourself to the casual atmosphere fine dining of Crippen’s Country Inn & Restaurant by driving the 24 miles south of West Jefferson to Boone then turn South for another 8 miles to Blowing Rock, NC. Located in a quaint, Southern, side-street cottage, you will dine on an absolutely artistic creation designed for the season. Don’t miss Canyon’s Restaurant, the view is priceless!! Canyon’s is inconspicuously built on a ridge where you can enjoy a burger, and a million dollar view!! You cannot leave Blowing Rock without a stroll downtown where you have to visit Kilwin’s homemade ice cream and candy store on Main Street, and let the kids play in the park which is the centerpiece on Main Street.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2013

                              About the owner: Howard lives in the Florida Keys, and has three grown kids. He is a retired Commercial Airline Pilot, and retired USAF Pilot. Howard is a NC native. He enjoys the natural beauty, fresh air, and wildlife of the Blue Ridge Mountains while trekking and biking.

                              Why the Owner Chose Jefferson:
                              Being a native North Carolinian, I have been drawn to this area of the world since my youth. I have siblings who live in the local area here in Ashe County, and our place of birth in Transylvania County. I built another cabin in 2009 in the southern part of Ashe County. That cabin, The Great Escape, has done so well, I have now found this cabin in order to have an additional place to live part-time, but have decided to also list it so I can share it with others who also enjoy getting away to the mountains. This cabin is located on the northern side of Ashe County, near Laurel Springs on your way to Sparta from the Jeffersons, but still only a short eight miles drive to Jefferson, and another four miles to beautiful downtown West Jefferson with all its restaurants, shops, The Cheese Factory, and much more.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                              Private, Quiet, Friendly, Small Community. A warm, cozy cabin with great amenities, like the Spa, WiFi, and toys in the basement for the kids: ping pong, air hockey, and basketball. Lots of wildlife, and nice mountain and forest views, at a very fair price for a 3 BR and 3 BA cabin.
