Property description

The Little Peak Creek cabin is located on 68 acres on some of the most beautiful mountain land in the high county. There is open pasture land, with farm animals for the whole family to enjoy. There are large hardwood forests and pine forests with trails winding all through the property. The trail to the over look offers a deck and chairs, and a view of every major mountain in the county, including the mountains in Virginia .
Gather your own eggs and fresh vegetables when in season from the cabin garden. In the evening the property is great for stargazing as there is no light pollution . Enjoy the cabin's front yard and lull away the afternoon in the hammock. There is a large Bocce ball court in the front yard for day and night time entertainment.. Enjoy reading and relaxing on the front or back porch, or on a rainy day find a movie to watch. The cabin has Direct tv, and has all the movie channels ! The kids can enjoy the Smokehouse sand box which is on the lower level and is enclosed, while you can watch from rocking chairs on the porch. We have bikes on the property that you can use and will gladly provide you with suggested routes and back packs for your outing. If you love animals we have chickens, goats, ducks, geese, donkeys dogs and horses. Feel free to visit them as you wander the property on our hiking trails .
The owners live in a separate lodge on the property , but are a good distance from the cabin offering all the privacy you want. Their home is adjacent to a pond and it has a small doc., Although they prefer to consider the pond area their private space, as they have guest so frequently , they are happy for you to stop to snap a picture or two. As you pass their home and on the trail to the overlook you will see hillsides planted with wildflowers in the spring, summer and fall.
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 homey 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 Willingham's personal garden, where they grow their food for winter, is a place to visit and learn about the plants grown there or you can produce some beautiful photographs to document your trip. The smokehouse studio is a private space to sleep 2 and you will hear and see the creek and water fall from your bed! The stunning barn rebuilt in 2013, after a tragic fire, is a delight to everyone for collecting eggs and visiting with the animals.
The cabin is well located for everything you would want to do. It is only 15 minuets from the historic town of West Jefferson. The town has a wide variety of interesting shops, great choices for dining, galleries, and a wonderful farmers market.
There are back street concerts, as well as many other events all around Ashe county. There are plays and performances at the Civic Center year round. From the cabin you can be on the New River in only 2 minuets for tubing, fishing, kayaking or canoeing , The Blue Ridge Parkway is only five minutes away. A stable is also a short 5 minute drive from your back door where the whole family can take a horse back riding trip through the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains . The New River State Park is only 10 minutes away , with an indoor theater and walk through exhibit where you can learn about the history of the county. The farm adjoins Wagoner State Park where you can hike and enjoy the river. Across the street from the driveway is a gem mine where children and adults can pan for interesting gems and treasures from the old Ore Knob Mine . In 2014 one lucky individual found a sapphire valued at $16,000. The owner there can set your stones if you wish to create an unusual piece of jewelry to remember your trip !

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Steve and Lisa Willingham are animal lovers ,love to garden ,hike and spend time outdoors. Lisa is a retired elementary school teacher and Steve is a successful artist ,landscape designer and remodels homes and businesses. They own a gallery in West Jefferson called ,The Artists' Theatre. They are active in the business community of West Jefferson and have contributed to many town improvements.

Why the Owner Chose Jefferson:
The Willinghams moved to Ashe County in 1977 after getting married and have never left the beautiful mountains. They lived in a wonderful farm house for 30 years and never thought they would leave it, but in 2006 they found their current property and it was love at first sight. They bought the property in the rough, but the transition has been amazing!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The farm has it all. Rolling hills,hardwood forests, a pond ,creeks, a 100 year old 2 story barn and above all it is secluded and has a magic all its' own. The primary mountain view of ,The Peak mountain is a part of a state park that will never be developed.
