"My husband, son, two dogs and I stayed with Sally and Joe for two weeks. The cabin was perfect for our needs-- Well equipped, cozy, and most importantly, no musty cabin smell! We also spent a lot of time on their property, sampling some yummy organic fruits and vegetables, hiking the loop, swimming/exploring the creek. One evening, we hiked through the forest to the glamping site to enjoy a meteor shower with Joe and Sally and the occupants of the other cabin (wow! what an experience!). What else could we want? Another afternoon Joe took us to a neighbor's house (on the Polaris, which my 11 year old son loved!) to see a library that they built on their property (breathtaking). The cabin is about a 15-20 min drive to West Jefferson, which we really enjoyed exploring. There's a great coffee shop, fun shops, galleries (we did a painting class at Frenchie's). We also went to the New River State Park and did a kayaking tour from the General Store nearby. Grayson Highlands was wonderful too (went twice)--on both visits we were fortunate to see a mother pony and her baby. Great hiking, incredible scenery, wild blueberries--definitely worth a visit. Also, per Joe's suggestion, we did the Virginia Creeper trail which is a downhill, 17 mile bike trail that runs on an old railroad line. Fun!
My family and I have stayed in many cabins all over NC. This was by far our favorite! Great hosts, great location, great accommodations--its got it all! We'll be back! Thank you for everything!!"
