About the property

3 bedrooms, loft, bunk room, 2 baths, Sleeps 12.

This luxury peg, post and beam timber-frame cabin sits on top of a ridge on 50 unspoiled acres. Quiet, secluded with spectacular mountain views all around. Explore the walking trails on the property that lead to the Top-O-The-Ridge where you can see the North Carolina side of the Blue Ridge off in the distance. Follow the less strenuous get-away trail which will lead you to an intimate view of the peaceful valley below while relaxing in an Adirondack chair or on the A-frame swing. Maybe just head down the ridge to Helton Creek, which borders the property, and enjoy the sounds of the bold stream or try your hand at fly fishing for some of the native or stocked trout. Or...just sit on the porch and enjoy the vistas or the horses that roam the property. You may never want to leave!

This beautiful home has 3 porches, each with spectacular views. Enjoy dinner or a warm fire outside on the back deck. Build a roaring bon-fire in the camp fire pit overlooking Grayson Highlands State Park. At night the stars are magnificent! Inside, sit on the large hearth of the nearly 30 foot stone fireplace and soak in the warmth and sounds of another crackling fire.

Indulge in the many activities close by. Lily Ridge is just 10 min. from the Virginia Creeper Trail and only 3 miles from Grayson Highlands State Park. Local attractions/activities include hiking, fishing, biking, horseback riding, music, and festivals throughout the year.

West Jefferson, NC is 25 min away where there are a variety of restaurants from BBQ to fine dining. Enjoy local art work, shops and antiquing. Nearby, enjoy the ambiance, a glass of wine and fine dining offered by the River House located on the North Fork of the New River. For family style with an atmosphere and history all it's own, check out Shatley Springs and don't forget to grab a bottle of fresh spring water, said to cure many an ailment. There are several golf courses located in West Jefferson and the New River is a beautiful place to canoe, tube or kayak.

In the other direction over the peak of Whitetop Mountain, is Abingdon, Virginia, a vibrant and quaint destination and home to the historic Barter Theater. Abingdon is a short 45 minute drive along the famed Crooked Road Music Trail. Explore the town, try the original Tavern which has been in continuous operation since the 1700's and visit the Abingdon Winery on the way there or on the way back to Lily Ridge.

Boone, NC is an hour from Whitetop as well as the quaint community of Blowing Rock. Shop, ski, rock climb or zip line. The choices in and around Lily Ridge Cabin are limitless.

We manage the property personally to make sure your stay is an enjoyable and memorable experience! We hope you will consider staying with us soon!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I want you to know we had a wonderful time and found the cabin and surroundings to be beyond our expectations! Everyone agreed that we couldn't have chosen a more perfect spot to celebrate our big birthdays! We really enjoyed the shops in W. Jefferson and had great lunches at Sweet and Savory and the Tavern Hotel. On Friday it rained all day, and we had lunch in Abingdon at (appropriately) Rain - it was wonderful! We had decided to have dinners in to avoid driving after dark and were so pleased with the kitchen and cooking accommodations. The trails at Grayson Highlands Park were perfect for those of us who like to hike, and being a horse lover, I couldn't have been more thrilled to enjoy my morning coffee while watching them from the deck! Thank you so much for thinking of everything to make your guests feel so welcome. We give Lily Ridge Cabin a 5+ star review!

Wonderful, relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for only a few days, but we loved every second. Beautiful home and it has all kinds of creature comforts. I loved the fact that there were several decks to sit on and enjoy mountain views. When the rain comes, just go under the covered porch! We enjoyed hiking around the property. Unfortunately, a lot of it is overgrown which made exploring difficult. The kitchen is well stocked and the CD collection was fantastic! I love any opportunity I can get to expose my 2 teenage daughters to the music of my childhood. The beds were comfortable. This place has everything you need.

Also, I need to mention an issue we had while there. We woke up on July 4th with no water pressure. We couldn't flush the toilets, wash our hands, nothing (fortunately I had set up the coffe to be made the night before!). This had the potential to really dampen our stay. However, I called the owners and they couldn't have been more helpful. We both knew they had little chance of getting someone to fix it on a holiday. They walked me through some things to check and it turns out the water pump just needed a quick, easy fix. They know this house well. We never had any problems after that, and they were going to have someone check it out after we left. They were great.

Those amazing decks!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed in early July, our 2nd stay at Lily Ridge. The home is well cared for and clean. It has large decks with seating along 3 sides of the home, with views of the vast tree covered mountains. We enjoyed using both the gas grill and the chiminea (wood stacked nearby for guests to use). The home is very open with the high ceilings and huge loft (my favorite part of the house). We also loved that Grayson Highlands State Park, with it's cool wild ponies, was only a few miles away. Driving on the winding wooded roads in the area was a treat in itself. The 2 children with us took over the basement, it's bunk beds, large couch and TV, which worked out well for all :)

Beautiful, relaxing, and away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend Lily Ridge Cabin. We were lucky to have an entire week with Lily Ridge as a home base. The course was beautiful, clean, and had great views. We even saw a bobcat on the property. The area is an excellent place to ride the Virginia Creeper Trail, and it is close to the Whitetop start. Best to start there and ride downhill! We also had great access to parking areas for hiking the Appalachian Trail at Grayson Highlands State Park, Whitetop Mt., and Elk Garden Ridge. We loved the farmer's markets in Damascus and Abington. But most of all I think my husband and I loved the time we spent together in this cabin reconnecting after being at our stressful jobs. Because we cooked our meals here, the vacation was less expensive than staying in hotel. Wild horses on the property only add to the charm.
