What You’ll Find Onsite
The gorgeous view greets you as you enter the Ridgetop Retreat Cabin and look out the big picture windows, and as you relax on the deck furniture, perhaps enjoying the quiet of the mountains, a sunset over the mountain peaks, a relaxing beverage, or dinner with family or friends. After waking to the mountain view out the master bedroom window, enjoy your first cup of coffee and the sweet-smelling morning air on the scenic deck or on the rocking chair front porch.
The cabin is decorated in tasteful mountain decor. It combines the best features of a private, cozy get-away and the modern conveniences to which we have become accustomed. The cabin features a complete kitchen with stove, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, coffeemaker, toaster, and all the other amenities of your kitchen at home. We provide all paper products (paper towels, toilet paper, napkins, kleenex), soap, shampoo, coffee filters, detergents, plastic wrap and aluminum foil, salt, pepper, basic spices, and, yes, even night lights.
The living area features a flat screen TV, DVD/CD player, high-speed internet, DVDs, books, games, a small selection of CDs, and binoculars for getting close-up views of the trees, plants, and animals in our awesome view. The back deck has a gas grill, picnic table, rocking chairs, and a bench for taking in the wonderful view and mountain air. The front deck also has an eating table and chairs. The master bedroom has a high-quality memory foam mattress and fluffy comforter (in season), and the loft has two sleeping areas, one with a queen-size bed with a pillowtop mattress and the other with a twin bed. We provide all linens. There is a full bathroom downstairs and a half bathroom upstairs.
At 3500 feet, the Ridgetop Retreat cabin sits at the top of a scenic ridge with an awesome view into the valley below and to the mountains on the other side of the valley. Even though the cabin is on a ridgetop, it is only a mile to the bottom of the mountain and the historic New River with its access to fishing, kayaking, tubing, and wading (for our Spring, Summer, & Fall guests).
If you journey down our mountain, you run right into an especially scenic part of the New River, where you can tube, kayak, fish, and even wade. The narrow paved road that runs along the river has been voted as one of the best bicycling routes in North Carolina - completely flat, but with scenic mountains, pastoral views, and the sun shimmering off the river and a cool mountain breeze to please your senses. Bicycle to nearby Todd and visit the historic General Store or rent kayaks, tubes, and bicycles at a nearby outfitter (in season). In the evening, sit around the cozy fireplace drinking hot chocolate or make a fire in our back yard fire pit, roast marshmallows, and enjoy your favorite beverage.
Our mountain resort community also includes a small lake with a quiet swimming beach and an accessible island in the lake with a gazebo picnic area. For golfers, the Mountain Aire and Boone Golf Club courses are only a few miles away. If you prefer hiking, there are several nice walks and hikes within the resort community, including one to a waterfall (Fleetwood Falls), and there are numerous hiking trails off the nearby Blue Ridge Parkway. The cabin is conveniently located within a short drive of the Blue Ridge Parkway, Boone, Blowing Rock, Todd, the Jeffersons, and several major ski resort areas.
