Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I had a really wonderful, restful time at your house. It was so clean and comfortable,and the house was set in such a peaceful surrounding. We loved the open, comonn space you had and we spent a lot of time hanging out by the fireplace in the living room together. We also enjoyed the kitchen where we could cook meals together. My dog was a little perturbed by the stuffed ducks initially - she couldn't stop growling at them - but got used to them by day 1.

I thought your website was useful (the photo gallery was especially selling) and the pot of flowers on the front porch was anice touch.

Thak you and we hope to come back again!

Wonderful Thanksgiving in West Jefferson

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 really enjoyed our stay in this cabin. It was very cold outside but we were cozy inside. The layout of the cabin was open and comfortable for the 6 of us all to find a spot in the shared living spaces. The front porch is phenomenal. We also enjoyed walking down to the river where we had a Thanksgiving fire in the established fire pit. The kitchen was fully equipped to create our Thanksgiving feast and each bedroom was a perfect retreat.

While we were in the area we visited Boone, Blowing Rock and downtown West Jefferson. Each had their own personality and were but a short drive away. I highly recommend this cabin for your next family or friends gathering.

Wonderful home in a beautiful location

The cabin was really nice and comfortable. Being on the river was beautiful. We drove to Boone and West Jefferson and the drive was not too long either way. Highly recommend!

We loved it.

Beautiful, comfortable and clean cabin. Very tranquil setting on the river. West Jefferson is close by as are wineries and many scenic areas. The roads to the cabin were a cinch. I can't wait to return in the summer!

Beautiful, isolated cabin overlooking the New River

  • 5 of 5

Very nice quite, isolated cabin overlooking the New River. Very well maintained.

Stocked very well with basic essentials. Awesome large covered back porch with grill

overlooking the river! There are a large amount of steps (bit of a hike) to conveniently get down to the river where you will find a cleared area with picnic table and fire pit. Just a short ride to West Jefferson, Mt. Jefferson, Blue Ridge Parkway and even Boone. Will return!
