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!

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our third visit to West Jefferson and this was by far the best cabin our family has stayed in.This place was a little piece of heaven; recharged and regrouped. Spent a lot of time on the back porch overlooking the river. The path to walk down to the river is well maintained - be advised, the hike back up to the cabin is challenging - and we loved it. The cabin was clean and the kitchen had all the basics. Downtown West Jefferson is only 15 minutes away and it is a dreamy little town and very pleasant merchants. Make sure you visit the cheese factory. All in all, it was a great stay and we are looking forward to coming back to this cabin in the near future.

Totally wonderful cabin

  • 5 of 5

The porch is fantastic, very secluded with woods all around and a view of the river.. We so loved this place, we hardly left during our stay. We preferred the peace of the cabin, which was well equiped with everything we needed. Cozy beds and spacious rooms. The kitchen had everything we needed to make an early Thanksgiving dinner. We stay in a different cabin every year but we are going back next year because this one can not be beat.

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

New Log Home on New River was very nice and clean. It is very private which is what our family likes, yet within a few miles from amenities. The property is well maintained and I would recommend this property to anyone who likes their privacy. We visited Boone and Blowing Rock which is within 30 to 45 minutes away. I would like to rent this property again in the future.
