Property description

RELAX and REJUVENATE at Kilkellys WEST WING Condo! We are blessed to live in an unusually beautiful part of the Blue Ridge Mountains, perched high on a finger ridge of the Eastern Continental Divide. With safe, paved road year-around access, we are just off the Blue Ridge Parkway at the Bamboo Gap entrance, and only minutes from Boone and Blowing Rock. Yet we enjoy total privacy and unsurpassed panoramic views. There are no city lights, so the stars are magnificent. And with no nearby highways or traffic noise, we are able to enjoy the orchestral sounds of nature. As we are very grateful for being able to share this beauty with others, our goal is to provide a unique vacation destination, centered around the serenity and majesty of the oldest mountain range on our continent.

You will be surrounded by gorgeous mountain views from our 22-acre ridge of gardens, woodland and fields. You will be welcomed with warmth and special amenities - and pampered by luxurious furnishings. About 3 years ago, we opened our WEST WING -- a luxurious and totally private and independent, 2-bedroom/2-bath condo. It is sound-separated from the Main House by double exterior walls and doors. And it was designed at an angle from the Main House to ensure visual privacy. It is also out of sight or sound of our other vacation rental, the 'CABIN at Kilkelly's', which is further down our ridge. The 'WEST WING' is 1800 square feet, two stories, with a king bedroom suite on each floor. It has its own private drive, its own parking area, three private entrances, its own front porch, rear patio, and corner-wrapped deck -- all with tables, swings, and comfortable seating. The Wing has a private Jacuzzi hot tub, a dedicated heating/AC system and satellite TV system; a private foyer, living room, kitchen, pantry, and billiard/game room. And best of all -- it has its own breathtaking, panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, valleys, sunrises, and sunsets.

20 of the 24 photos included here were taken directly from the 'West Wing' condo. The other 4 photos are from the adjoining fire pit, playground area, and the property entrance.

We encourage you to check out our guest reviews, some of which have been submitted directly to VRBO and the remainder taken directly from our Guest Book (which are unedited and include ALL guest reviews and comments).

There are flowering trees, beautiful landscaping, and seasonal vegetable gardens. We have outdoor play areas and play equipment, a horse shoe pit, a fire pit, a 45-foot rope swing, and nearby streams. There is also a short but rigorous climb to our own small cave.

It's a perfect place to experience dramatic weather changes and cloud formations, above you and below. And at night, it's a star gazer's dream! And we have another little gift from Mother Nature: WE'VE NEVER HAD MOSQUITOES! All patios and decks are open to nature.

Our goal is to share this remarkable natural setting with our guests by providing private, warm and luxurious accommodations, and a memorable visit to the Blue Ridge Mountains.

WE WELCOME YOU to the WEST WING!
Your Innkeepers,
Joanie and Gary Kilkelly

Location

Our closest attraction, the Blue Ridge Parkway (1/3 mile) is the largest National Park in the US. It alone offers the most scenic and dramatic views of the mountains of western NC, as well as numerous hiking trails, horseback riding, biking river rafting, river/lake canoeing and fishing, picnicking, cascades, waterfalls, and dramatic rock outcrops.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Enhancing and maintaining this unusually beautiful place is one of our greatest passions -- sharing it with others is another. Our ability to achieve our goal is best reflected by the REVIEWS of our guests. Guests' reviews are either submitted directly to VRBO or taken directly from our Guest Book, fully and accurately quoted, and include the reviews by ALL of our guests. In addition, all photos shown here are genuine and taken from the 'West Wing'.

Why the Owner Chose Boone:
In 2009 we built 'The Cabin at Kilkellys', further down our finger ridge, several hundred yards from the Main House and West Wing. Because of its popularity, in 2011 we decided to open our West Wing condo. Like the Cabin, the West Wing is private and upscale, and shares the same spectacular views. So with this addition, we are continuing our journey, meeting wonderful people along the way. And it remains our goal to provide the most unique, highest quality, and relaxing vacation destination in the Blue Ridge Mountains!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
In addition to the panoramic views, the West Wing itself is a unique rental property. It is a fully furnished two-story condo with warm and upscale characteristics of a B&B. But because it offers so much more, we feel it's better categorized as a luxury condo that's attached to, but private from, our Main House. We ONLY rent the West Wing in its entirety, to one set of guests at a time. The guests or guest party simply decide if they need one or two master suites, and only pay for what they need.
