Jefferson cabin description
This property is nestled into a 'holler', as they say in the mountains, and provides complete privacy from the road. Gather your own eggs and fresh vegetables when in season.Great property for stargazing . We can provide meals or snacks for you upon request or prepare you a top rate picnic complete with quilt and pillows for relaxing . Enjoy the cabin's front yard and lull away the afternoon in the hammock. Enjoy reading and relaxing on the front or back porch ! We have bikes on the property that you can use and will gladly provide you with trails and back packs for your outing. If you love animals we have chickens, goats, ducks, geese, dogs and horses. Feel free to visit them and wander the property on our hiking trails . Hike or ride in the four wheeler with the owners to the top of the mountain to enjoy the stunning view of Ashe County and neighboring Virginia.
The owners live in a separate lodge on the property, but are a good distance from the cabin. The cabin at Little Peak Creek Farm is charming and allows you to return to a simpler time. It is decorated beautifully and provides a homy atmosphere. You will want to adopt it as your own, 'second home' after your first visit. In the summer we provide you with a delightful kitchen garden where you can pick your own lettuce, herbs and tomatoes and cucumbers for the freshest salad you have ever tasted.

The Best Vacation our family has ever had!!
The Best Vacation our family has ever had!!
Our time spent at this beautiful farm was absolutely magical! Our children still haven't stopped talking about how beautiful the property is, or how hilarious the animals are. The cabin is wonderful and is very well stocked. Bring your clothes and you will be set. Lisa and Steve are two of the kindest people we have ever met, and they were so great with our two children, especially our nosey little six year old. Our kids collected eggs every morning, explored the property non stop, and played with all of Lisa and Steve's animals until they couldn't play anymore. The animals are really the stars here, the dogs are friendly and sweet, Jesse James (the horse) loves attention and snacks, and Bonnie and Clyde are such characters! We are already planning our trip back next year, counting down the days already! This isn't just a cabin, it is a little piece of mountain heaven that you will never want to leave. The property is filled with lots of hiking trails, and the overlook is amazing (especially at sunset). Jefferson is a quaint little town with lots of personality and Blowing Rock and Boone are a short drive away. Thanks again Lisa and Steve, can't wait to see you again!

Peaceful, relaxing weekend in the Blue Ridge mountains, exactly as described. Lisa, Steve and 'farm kids' are a very hospitable family, we couldn't ask for a better time. Thank you all, we look forward to a return trip!

After the death of a dear friend, I wanted to take my two small dogs and head to the NC mountains for some time to reflect and be alone with my thoughts. I was lucky to find this listing and after speaking with Lisa on the phone, somehow knew that I would find some solace. When I got out of the car after the long drive, I heard music coming from the cabin. The doors were open and I thought for a moment that I had gotten my dates wrong. But I realized that Lisa had left music playing and a light on. It was such a homey feeling walking through the old screen door into a beautifully furnished cabin. I spent the rest of the day sitting in a rocker on the porch taking in the landscape and watching my dogs explore. The sound of the creek that runs along the side of the cabin, the company of Lisa and Stephen's labs and the fresh mountain air were all perfect. Lisa was so gracious and friendly, checking to make sure I got settled in, letting me know about the trails around the farm and even dropping off some eggs and corn from the garden. At night, there is no light pollution so the stars are amazing. Maddie and Ruby, my dogs, loved every minute and so did I. I could only stay two nights, but I am already planning a longer trip back. If you need a little peace and quiet with only the slamming of a wooden screened door to remind you of your childhood, this is the place. I could almost hear my mother yelling from the kitchen...stop slamming that screen door. Simply Heaven.

"Best Vacation Ever"
"Best Vacation Ever"
Within 10 minutes of arrival both of our kids, ages 8 and 11, declared this to be the best vacation ever. The fact that they still said this after a week of crazy rain storms means this cabin, property, and owners deserve major kudos. I can't say enough good things about our experience. The cabin was perfect, the property was amazing. I loved all of the decorative touches in the cabin and landscaping. The kids spent hours splashing in the stream, looking for eggs, capturing fireflies, and playing with the animals. It was great to see the kids playing outside rather than indoors on electronics. The cabin is just a short drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway or the town of West Jefferson, which made it great for day trips to the surrounding areas. Thank you Lisa and Steve, we'll definitely be back!

We had such a wonderful time at this farm and the owner's were the best. The cabin was very comfortable and very clean. We really did not want for nothing, it's especially a great place just to sit and relax. We throughly enjoyed all the animals. If you like hiking you won't have a problem with some of the dogs wanting to join in. We would plan on staying there again. And a very Thanks again to the owner's for a wonderful time.

The Perfect Little Hideaway
The Perfect Little Hideaway
What a beautiful piece of paradise. If seclusion, charm and a peaceful getaway is what you are looking for this is it. The farmhouse is full of character and has all the charm you would expect from the photographs. You will find beautiful artwork created by the owner through out the house. There are touches of the old with the new. The hospitality of the owners was so refreshing. We were welcomed with fresh zucchini bread, pound cake and homemade chocolate spread! So awesome. You will fall in love with the land and the sweet labs who took a nice walk with us up the mountain. We also threw on our boots and headed to the barn one morning for fresh eggs. That was a first for us. Our stay could not have been better and we look forward to returning when the weather is warmer.

Memories to last a Lifetime
Memories to last a Lifetime
What an absolutely magical place...We had the opportunity to rent the adorable cottage at Little Peak Creek Farm this past Sept. We wanted somewhere for our boys (14 and 11) and us to get away, unwind and enjoy the country...Little did we know that what we would experience would be a vacation with memories to last a lifetime! First l must say that the cottage is absolutely adorable. Lisa and Steve have arranged everything with such a warm, inviting and artistic flare that it makes you want to linger at each turn to investigate an interesting feature or snuggle in for a leisurely stay. Wonderful...But your stay at Little Peak Creek farm is so much more that the wonderful cabin...And that is because of the colorful cast of characters that live there!! Starting right at the top with Lisa and Steve who have lovingly restore and renovated the property to its current, wonderful state. Good and gracious people who geniunely want ot make sure that their guest have a fantastic vacation. Our daily investigations for fresh laid eggs was a fast made tradition and the excitement of the morning and the awakening of the barn animals even got our teenage out of bed early (which is unheard of!!) The horse, Jesse James, is a kind and gentle soul and the goats are wonderfully entertaining. The dogs could not be sweeter. Each in our family had our favorite as they all had their own, unique personality. Hikes up to the amazing vistas on the property would not be complete without these faithful and hilarious sidekicks...And then there was Bonnie and Clyde, the geese. Clyde will forever be tatooed in our minds with his larger than life personality. A week doesn't go by when we don't remeniesce about Clyde's antics and we will never again look at an AFLAC commerical without laughing because of Clyde!! The grounds are immaculately maintained and there is plenty of room to roam. You can do as much or as little as you want. Either way you will have a blast. We will return again and our descriptions of the fantastic vaca we had have many families in our community planning their future magical vacations at Little Peak Creek Farm.

Fantastic family vacation spot
Fantastic family vacation spot
Our vacation in the cottage at Little Peak Creek couldn't have been better. Steve and Lisa were the most gracious and kind hosts. By the time we left, they felt like family to us. Our daughter described staying in the cottage on their beautiful property like "living in a storybook." It was perfect to disconnect with our busy lives and spend a week together as a family creating so many memories that we will always cherish. The location is private and secluded but still an easy 15 minute drive into the really friendly town of West Jefferson. We felt safe and comfortable in our surroundings. Our young kids had so much fun with all the animals on the farm and particularly fell I love with the dogs. The kids collected garden vegetables, fresh eggs, blackberries, tasted freshly collected honey, and spent hours splashing in the creek in front of the cottage. We walked to gem mining down the road-a big hit with the kids, went tubing, hiked Mt. Jefferson, took a painting class at Steve and Lisa's beautiful studio/store, and hiked all over the property. It was so great to take a vacation with three small kids, ages 4-7, and completely relax and feel comfortable. We cannot say wonderful things about the property and Steve and Lisa. We all had tears in our eyes when we left and easily could have stayed the month. You won't be disappointed with your stay here. Thank you Steve and Lisa for making our stay with you so special. We hope to come back very soon! Our stay with you was the highlight of our summer! Rebecca and Darren

A magical place
A magical place
My family and I spent two amazing nights at Steve and Lisa's idyllic farm. The setting is just amazing with beautiful views, enchanting trails, and friendly animals. Our two daughters immediately fell in love with all the animals, especially Andy the terrier! They loved searching for eggs and taking walks in the creek with the dogs. The accommodations are lovely, the cottage is stocked with everything you may need and is decorated beautifully. Both Steve and Lisa went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and recommended an outfitter on the close by New River for us to go tubing with. Steve even shared some local fishing spots with my husband! We loved sitting on the back patio listening to the bubbling creek and looking out over the meadows teeming with wildflowers. The front porch is a great spot to watch the fireflies and listen to the bullfrogs once the sun goes down. If you have time, stop in Lisa and Steve's gallery in West Jefferson. Steve's artwork is showcased along with other artist's, antiques and unique home decor. We are all looking forward to spending more time at this magical spot.

We spent 3 days at the cabin for New Years and could not have been happier. We brought our dog and he had a blast with the 3 other labs that were there. This is a great location for anyone wanting to get into the country but not too far from Jefferson. Stephen and Lisa were exceptional hosts and were able to visit them at their gallery in town. We will certainly return in the future around leaf season as long as it doesn't fill up too quickly.
