Beautiful Rustic and nice getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect set up for the couples getaway retreat we planned! We had such a good job we’ve decided to do this annually! The home was clean, cozy, and had many options to keep ourselves busy even with it raining all weekend. It was a difficult find being so far in the mountains but I considered it to be a hidden treasure. Very good experience and I wouldn’t mind coming back!

The cabin is tucked about 5 miles from the main highway but very convenient to West Jefferson and Boone for dining, sight seeing, and shopping.

Relaxing and wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The beautiful log house was very clean and comfortable and was perfect for the 4 of us. Teens enjoyed pool table and hot tub. We loved the rocking chairs and wrap around porch. West Jefferson area is beautiful. House was equipped with all you need. Nice owners even left fresh veggies from the garden for us! We'll be back!

Owner's Response: Hi, We appreciate your stay at Higher Ground! We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. This cabin is just what any family needs to enjoy and relax with a hot tub, pool table, game room, covered porch, and a yard to explore. Always clean and comfortable but with WIFI access and Satellite TV, guests are never cut off from civilization. For the adventurous outdoors person, you can even hike to the river. Any guests who stay during garden harvest season is sure to have some special treats left for them to enjoy. We hope you will come again soon! Thanks~4 Seasons Vacations -Kristina

Comfortable and clean cabin!

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is really comfortable and extremely clean. The hike to the river was hard to find the trail, but we made it. Once we got to the river, it was awesome - very pretty and peaceful! The yard area of the cabin was great and loved sitting on the porches. We escaped 102 degree heat in Raleigh so we enjoyed spending all of our time outside! My only complaint was the basement bedroom felt like a basement so we ended up only using the upstairs loft and master. Overall a good stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Shelley, We appreciate your comments and review on your stay at Higher Ground! This 3 br/2ba cabin has so much to offer, inside and outside. We are glad you were able to hike to the river and enjoy our beautiful, cool summer weather. The lowest level of this cabin is a finished basement area, with a bedroom, large game room, and a bathroom/laundry room. Anyone can enjoy the quiet, private hot tub to relax. The covered porch with views or the yard with a picnic table is a fine place to relax as well! We hope you will come back and visit again. Thanks, 4 Seasons Vacations~Kristina

A Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

this place is GORGEOUS ... beautifully decorated and so well maintained! I can't say enough good things about this cabin! the view from the front deck was so pretty and we even got to see the "smoky" they put in the Smoky Mountains early one morning! the directions to the cabin could've been a little more clear and accurate ... we had to pull over and call the help desk after hours! I would recommend this place to everyone! we would also recommend the Smokey Mountain Barbeque restaurant -- was delicious!

Owner's Response: Hi Patricia, Thanks so much for your review on Higher Ground. We always try to give simple directions for our guests coming to cabins, however with the rural mountainous roads it can be a little tricky. I am glad you enjoyed the cabin and the views are really nice there. You can really relax on the covered porch, no matter the weather, in the nice rocking chairs. I am glad you enjoyed Smoky Mtn. BBQ! We have some really good restaurants in West Jefferson and Jefferson.

Great Get-away Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a long weekend at this wonderful cabin. It had every amenity we could possibly hope for (well, except for a dishwasher), and we didn't have to leave the cabin all weekend. We hiked the trail to the river (it's steep but not bad), we played pool, we relaxed in the hot tub and we rocked on the front porch and enjoyed the view of the mountains (a bit obstructed by some trees but still very nice). The bed on the main floor is extremely comfortable (and we've "slept" in some very uncomfortable beds in other cabins over the years) and with the windows open for the cool breezes and noises of the night, we slept like babies. I would recommend this cabin to anyone. We really can't wait to go back!

Higher Grounds

  • 5 of 5

Higher Grounds was a nice/clean cabin. Excellent view of mountains/pasture from family room and covered deck. 3 bedrooms...1 is a loft, 1 on main floor, 1 in basement. Private and quiet at homesite. The walk to the river was enjoyable...my 5 year old may it easily. Would stay here again.
