We love the mountains and this cabin is a perfect get a way for my family.
I built the log cabin on this wooded private 4 acre tract. I loved the long creek frontage and wooded privacy. Yet only 10 minutes to downtown West Jefferson and 20 to downtown Boone.
Private, yet close to shopping, attractions, kayaking, fishing and the Blue Ridge Parkway
Very nice place and easy access to West Jefferson or Boone. Blowing rock is only about 30 minutes away as well. The creek below the cabin was clear and made for relaxing times for us and our dogs. Kitchen is workable although with kitchen table it's a little tight. HOT TUB was great and clean. The only down side was having to launder the sheets or pay $40 extra. I have been to many VRBO cabins and having to clean and fold the sheets was a first. No worries though, good laundry room. I would recommend this spot for anyone coming to West Jefferson area.
We all loved it, it felt so relaxing and peaceful.
We felt very comfortable and at home.
Lots of sitting places outside to hear the crick flowing.
Very clean and homey.
Upon arrival we were surprised to find that we had to make our own beds...this was a 1st for us.
Shower curtain had mold on it and the deck needed to be swept off, which we did.
When we were told that someone was going to work on the hot tub in the evening but were suprised to see him at 9:30 pm. When he left a white pick up truck 50 ' from the house went off the road into a ditch (so much for the private driveway). Need chains at the end and a sign so people won't think it's road for the public.
The next day we came back from our outing and found Jehovah's witness material in the door (so much for the private driveway).
That night at 11:30pm a red pick up truck pulled up next to the house and an old fella was looking for his daughter's house. I put my clothes on and moved our car so he could turn around (so much for the private driveway).
On a positive note the overall appearance of the house was very clean, cute decorations. Kitchen was cute and clean. Bathrooms were also clean except the shower curtain at the bottom. Probably should replace it. Enjoyed the stream below and Christmas in July. Location is good for anyone wanting to attend. Love the West Jefferson area.
My family and I had a fabulous trip. My kids were in heaven. The toys we found downstairs were a huge hit. The cabin was clean and had plenty of paper products. I had brought extras I didn't need. The beds were very comfortable. As with other locations I've rented, I brought towels and sheets so I wouldn't have to worry about washing the linens before leaving on our last day. We used the basement heater and it heated through entire cabin just fine. It was nice having two drives to get to the property, definitely would need 4 wheeled drive car in snow. We explored the neighborhood and hung around the stream. Made good use of the washer and dryer after playing at the stream :) The location was close to restaurants and a grocery store but still felt nice and secluded.
Overall the cabin was nice.
Main complaint is, for the price you pay for this cabin(fees, etc) they should provide paper towels, toilet paper, and towels and linens that don't cost extra to clean. Also having to pay for your trash being taken out on Sunday's? Really? A charge for everything. Makes going on a trip "work". Especially with all the rules to stay there. It's exhausting.
Additionally, the road is private so if it snows it is completely covered and even with a 4 wheel drive we had a lot of difficulty getting up the drive and almost got stuck due to a UPS truck coming down the same time we were going up causing a lot of problems. Very dangerous cliff with ice.
Other issues were main source of heat was gas logs which had a very bad odor and then hot tub was nice just one set of jets didn't work and the others were not very powerful and the light didn't work outside.
Pros were it was very close to Boone and beds were comfy and well stocked kitchen utensils.
We had the best time staying at the cabin for our honeymoon. The cabin was so clean when we arrived! Very convenient to many attractions...we took day trips to Grandfather Mountain, Damascus VA for the Virginia Creeper Bike Trial, and downtown Boone. The bed in the loft was super comfortable. We cooked at the cabin every night and it was equipped with everything we needed. Husband said the grill worked great. The one and only complaint we have is the firepit/creek was not very convenient to get to from the house. We would def recommend this cabin and would stay here again!
