"My husband and I decided to spend a few days driving and exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway on a cool rainy week after leaving Florida. After 2 full days of driving north arriving at Highridge House was certainly the most perfect, wonderful place to relax and unwind before continuing our journey home to northern Michigan.
The cabin is clean and beautifully furnished with large roomy bedrooms, living room, kitchen, and dining nook. The open floor plan is roomy enough for several guests to be comfortable and cozy. The kitchen is very well-equipped kitchen, no problems with internet connection or Direct TV. You can certainly tell that the owners have good taste. We enjoyed the cabin so much that we actually skipped the rest of our Parkway tour and just stayed at the cabin to soak up the beautiful views.
The driveway can be a bit intimidating the first time, but it's safe. However, you might want to arrive in daylight the first time. After that well, it’s kind of fun.
We enjoyed Boone, the people we so friendly and willing to give recommendations and directions for places to enjoy lunch and dinner. Since we were only staying a short time we enjoyed most of our meals out. We particularly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere at Boondocks in West Jefferson, just a short drive from the cabin. Our waitress Ashley was outstanding, and the food was very fresh, well prepared and so very delicious.
All in all, Highridge House was fabulous place to visit. We're hoping to make it a regular stop on our journey between Michigan and Florida.
I would like to once again thank the owner John and his wonderful housekeeper Terry for helping to coordinate, package and return my garment bag we left hanging in the garage. Your effort and kindness is greatly appreciated."
