About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Welcome to The Summit at Blue Ridge, our mountain home! The house looks like a log church nestled in the mountains. It sits on 26 acres of mountain valleys and trails, so there are no close neighbors around! We hope you will feel the love and find rest during the days that you are here. You will hear the night sounds of the Blue Ridge Mountains….you will feel the seclusion from the hustle and bustle of city life….you will see the stars as though you were on the front porch of heaven…you will see treasures along the trails that God has placed in the secret spots in the woods…you might even see some wild turkeys along the path, or a glimpse of a beautiful deer.

The home has three bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. The bathroom in the downstairs has a Jacuzzi tub. There are two stone gas fireplaces, one upstairs in the great room, and one downstairs. The washer-dryer are downstairs for your use. Our house will sleep several people.

There are two queen size beds in the upstairs bedrooms, one double bed in the downstairs bedroom, a set of twin beds and a futon in the loft, plus the sleeper sofa that is in the downstairs great room. The fully-equipped kitchen will probably be the place where you will enjoy many moments around the large dining room table.

The favorite place to hang out is the deck. The view is breath-taking! The hot tub on the deck has an incredible view of the mountains in the day and the myriad of stars at night. We have a charcoal grill that you are welcome to use. Satellite is upstairs and downstairs for the TVs and there is a CD player with speakers for your enjoyment. If it is warm, there are fans for every room, plus ceiling fans with remote controls. We have air conditioning units in the loft, and the two main floor bedrooms, and portable a/c units in the great rooms. Also you will enjoy the fresh mountain air at night with the screens placed in the open windows! You might even hear the whippoorwill calling in the evening and early morning hours!

Bring your camera for those special glimpses of clouds on the mountains or the full rainbow after a mountain shower or just the God-given natural beauty of the surroundings. The Summit backs up to 6,000 acres of a National Wildlife Preserve. It is truly a Summit for the Soul!

About Madell Price

My sweet husband unexpectantly passed away in June, 2015. His passing left such a big hole in my heart. We were in church ministry together for over 50 years. We have 5 grown children and 12 grandkids, who are the joy of our lives. We loved to get away to the mountains where life is more carefree and away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. I love music, art, books, playing games, hanging out with family and friends, and LIFE! The Summit was a dream come true for my husband and I enjoy keeping it for others to enjoy.

Madell Price purchased this house in 2006

Why Madell Price chose Blue Ridge Mountains

We love the views from this piece of 'heaven' and feel the stress of city life roll away when we are able to go to The Summit.

What makes this house unique

The panoramic views of the mountains and the amazing star display on clear nights take you away from the daily grind. Being the only house on the mountain also gives a sense of a true getaway and retreat!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing view and a great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has all the amenities you need to enjoy a great vacation and a wonderful owner who is very attentive and hospitable to ensure your vacation is a good one. We enjoyed every bit of what this cabin offered. Simple and cozy! From the pool table, hot tub, game table, outside trails and the most amazing view; the Summit is a great place to stay. We were able to walk the trails from the cabin and found a small creek. While staying in the cabin, we mostly stayed downstairs the majority of the time watching a movie at night, playing pool and having some good, quality family bonding time. There are several roads around the cabin that have great views of streams, creeks and natural wildlife which were enjoyable to drive on. It is a bit of a distance from the local towns but we were able to enjoy the Buffalo Mercantile Company and Café just down the road (less than 5 minutes away from the cabin and great pizza!). Great stay! Highly recommended! Thank you Madell for sharing your cabin with us. My family and I had a great time and are very grateful!

A Family Memory..

Wonderful mountain views

  • 4 of 5

The positives:

We came to the mountains to enjoy some family time while visiting Tweetsie Railroad. This house was beautiful and clean which are important to me when I am looking for a place to stay. There was 8 people in my party and we all slept comfortably in the beds provided. The views were amazing and there was plenty for the kids to do.

The negatives:

The road to the house was a chore to drive even with awd. My tires literally were burning when we made it to the top from spinning out. It was so bad that we made sure if we left the house that we were back before dark, it rained, or was foggy. We didn't stay for the fireworks at Tweetsie due to this. Call us chickens but going off the driveway wasnt something we wanted to experience!

I knew this house didnt have central air but the window units only did so much to cool down the house ,especially at mid morning when the sun was shining in the windows. The temperature outside was only in the mid 80's but the air conditioners had trouble cooling the rooms down. We all ended up downstairs where it was cooler. Not sure this is where i would want to stay if it was extremely hot outside.

One of the pockets on the pool table has a hole in it. It needs to be fixed or it will ruin the beautiful flooring.

Lives Up To The Five-Star Reviews!

  • 5 of 5

I write reviews by trying to answer the questions I would have as a potential buyer. The most obvious question; would I come to The Summit again? Absolutely! Our family thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I think it would be difficult to find a property that packs this much punch for the price.

Were there any negatives? Not much. The few that were can easily be rectified. For example, the directions. The directions that were emailed to me were perfect. The problem is most of us are so used to GPS we just plug the address in and off we go. Well, either Google Maps is wrong or the address is wrong, but either way 9455 Elk Creek Darby Rd is marked about a half mile north of the turn-off to the gravel road. I know, why isn't that explained in the directions? Not sure. For the record, the turn off is right at the county line where Buffalo Cove Rd turns into Elk Creek Darby. If you look at the satellite view on Google Maps you'll see a turn off at "Walker Gap". That's the gravel road where you need to turn.

Speaking of the gravel road, it's not that bad. But yes, it is really steep in some spots. Two in our group were in small front-wheel drive cars and they had trouble with their front wheels spinning in the ruts. But it was pouring rain, really muddy, and pitch black out. My pick-up and another small SUV had no problems. The next day when it was dry, my nephew came in a very low sports car and had no problem. I would only be concerned if it's raining when you go.

Now, the good stuff. The house really is amazing. It's not like most rentals that tend to be generic, under-furnished, bland and out-dated. This place feels warm and inviting and is very well stocked. Tons of board games and DVD's. There are plenty of blankets and towels. And the kitchen is very well stocked too. Almost everything you'll need is there including basic spices and condiments in the fridge. We made a large batch of spaghetti one night (their slow cooker came in handy for my wife's homemade sauce), but the largest pot in the house could only handle about a pound of pasta. No biggie, next time I'll bring a bigger pot from home.

Everything else was simply amazing. My kids loved the pool table and ping pong. The hot tub was amazing; you really can see more stars away from the city. The trails were a nice touch. I'm an experienced hiker and I was impressed. We even used their turkey call to call in a big gobbler. The kids loved it.

And of course the views really are impressive

Beautiful Mountain Cabin

We loved our stay at this mountain get away. It was a beautiful home with stunning views and plenty of space for our family. We enjoyed the hiking trails, hot tub, and the cozy home feel this cabin has to offer. We would love to come back sometime for a longer stay!
