Jefferson cottage description

Experience the authenticity of Mammaw and Pappaw Darnell’s home place ½ miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway and across the street from the Raccoon Holler Campground lake. The beautiful lake is right in front of the home place. Used to about 5 years ago, there was no water or bathroom in this cabin. After Mammaw passed away, it was our dream to restore the home and leave the rooms as Mammaw had them in order to share the love of the cabin with others. Now complete with granite counter tops, hardwood floors, and whirlpool tub with it has all the modern day luxuries. You will really enjoy your time here – two bedrooms (i.e., three full beds as two are upstairs in one room), full bathtub, separate shower, washer dryer, dishwasher microwave, hardwood floors, natural beams etched with pine hardwood to provide the rustic cabin feel yet with the modern day appliances of comfort including flat screen cable television.

Sit on the front porch and look at the lake, view the lake from the kitchen, living room and upstairs bedroom. This home place offers authenticity and comfort. Convenient to Jefferson and West Jefferson, 22 miles out the Blue Ridge Parkway to Boone and a mile from the famous Northwest Trading Post, right off the Blue Ridge Parkway, 15 miles from Wilkesboro, come home to Raccoon Holler.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: I experienced complete love and acceptance when I visited my Mammaws and papaw here as a young boy. The two of them were amazing. Up the line was a spring where papaw went to get water. Down the line, lol, was an outhouse. When I stayed they wanted me to eat and rest and sleep and to this day in the courses I teach at UCF in Orlando to bachelors, masters, and doctoral students, I share about the RACCOON Holler Ritz Carlton experience I felt when spending time there. I wanted their legacy to live on so restore the cabin after they passed in hopes that those that came experienced a similar peace, love, and tranquility that I did when I was there. I hope you do. Currently, I am writing a childhood memoir entitled, Growing Up On Raccoon Holler. When finished, I will place a copy in the cabin. Thank all of you for reading and have a wonderful stay.
