Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 1.5 baths, amazing location on the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway

This property has been in my family for 150 years. The farmhouse has modern updates including Direct TV and wifi to go along with traditional touches like a wood burning fireplace and antiques. The water is the best water you will ever taste coming right out of the 250 acre mountain that is part of this property. There is a pond and lots of options for a country stroll.

The beautiful 1/4 mile driveway for the property is one of the few that is directly off the Blue Ridge Parkway(For those of you familiar with the area the driveway is directly across the Parkway from Miller's Campground). This section of the Parkway is peaceful and gorgeous in every season, filled with wild flowers and birds in spring, summer, with stunning color in the fall, and spare, contemplative beauty in winter.

This property is 25 minutes from West Jefferson which is known for its art galleries and crafts, pubs and restaurants. Mt. Jefferson state park is there. It is 25 minutes from Wilkesboro and Merlefest. A little further up the Parkway are Boone and Blowing Rock, skiing, restaurants, shopping, and views, views, views. The New River is 20 minutes away with outfitters for canoeing and tubing. There is no better climate on the east coast during the summer than in these mountains.

This section of the Parkway is very popular with bicyclists. The Mountains To Sea Trail passes through here as well.

The Vacation Rental is the main house downstairs. Upstairs is an apartment occupied by a family member.

My wife, Jenny, and I, have two properties in Asheville where we live that we have been renting for years. Check out our reviews there, VRBO 427206 and VRBO 1028032. You will fall in love with Parkway Country House.

Nestled in a Hollow...

  • 5 of 5

Our visit was so peaceful and wonderful! What a lovely home! We heard wild turkeys goobling up the hill from the house as well as coyotes howling during the night (in the distance). It was thrilling to be surrounded by so much life. The house was charming. My husband kept saying, "I could definitely live here!" The antiques were beautiful and the portrait of an ancestor from the 1800's watched over us at the dinner table each night.

Everything worked great. We never needed to speak with the owners. Luckily we did get to meet the family member who lives upstairs and she is charming and answered many of our questions about the history of this home.

What an idyllic place to vacation! Thank you so much for offering us a very clean and welcoming home to visit! We definitely want to come back here and highly recommend it!

Great week!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The accommodations were every bit as nice as advertised. Location was easy to find but is definitely secluded along the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway.

A great home in the beautiful mountains

  • 5 of 5

We spent the entire month of June at the Parkway house. The house is spacious and has all of the attributes one would want not to mention being perfectly positioned just off the Blue Ridge Parkway to explore the gorgeous mountains. We'll go back!

Scenic & Relaxing Blue Ridge Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the spacious living areas nestled in the valley!. Grilled out on the patio and then gathered for a fire by the pond. Appreciated the convenience to several hiking trails including the Mountains-to-Sea trail close to the property. It is a great location for biking the Blue Ridge Parkway. The hosts were very helpful with suggestions for adventures in Laurel Springs and along the Blue Ridge!
