About Jean

Dale and Jean have always enjoyed country life. Although they live near Charlotte, High Country Haven provides a wonderfully relaxing mountain retreat to share with friends and family. They welcome you to escape and enjoy their cozy mountain home.

Jean purchased this house in 2007

What makes this house unique

Often times, at dusk, you will see a family of deer leaping through the the front yard of the beautifully landscaped 3 acres. After sunset, the privacy of the woods and lack of street lights allow you to clearly gaze at the millions of twinkling stars in the dark night sky. Although you have seclusion, you are only a few miles from a grocery store, Walmart and Lowes, as well as many restaurants and site seeing destinations.

So cozy and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this cozy and impeccably clean cabin. We spent most of our time skiing, but this was a great place to rest and relax. We also enjoyed the town of West Jefferson on our last morning- so quaint and inviting. Jean was so easy to work with. We would definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: After a day of skiing, I'm sure you enjoyed the new gas logs in the fireplace. I'm glad you had a chance to visit the quaint little town of West Jefferson.

Beautiful little getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have loved our stay at your house here in the Boone area. We came to take our 2 sons to Tweetsie RR for a weekend getaway. Beautiful home, very clean and well kept. If I had a mtn home this would be exactly what I would want. Very quiet area and the town of West Jefferson is very nice. We look forward to coming back again! I highly recommend your home to anyone. Also, thank you Jean for your hospitality and allowing us to rent your place for the weekend.

Made in the shade

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a cool spot in the mountains and this was a great location. The house was well equipped and the master bed was comfortable. We visited the surrounding area and took a mountain hike. It was a very pleasant weekend.

Yearly Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

As usual, we were very happy with our stay. Close to West Jeff and other surrounding towns with restaurants and shops. This year we got to attend the yearly West Jeff antique faire which was great.

Owner's Response: The Annual Antique Fair is lots of fun. All year long, West Jefferson has many antique shops, art galleries and restaurants. I also highly recommend the Christmas in July festival. The Farmer's Market is always a hit too.
