About Kent Zotter

My goal is to provide top notch accommodations for you and your guests. I want you to truly relax and enjoy our beautiful mountains, wonderful people and memorable sights.

I live on the mountain and wouldn't trade it for anything...I want you to enjoy it so much that you'll return again and again.

Why Kent Zotter chose Blue Ridge Mountains

I can't tell you how awesome it is to wake each day and look out over this beautiful land. It doesn't matter whether the sun is shining or a drizzle or snowflakes coming down...each has it's own beauty here on the mountain.

What makes this cabin unique

Some of the greatest amenities of 'Sky High' are the views from the cabin and the fresh air. You can find other cabins in our area but none like 'Sky High' for it's accommodation, beauty and access. You'll enjoy privacy yet be close enough to other attractions.

Consider 'Sky High' your retreat away from home!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks for the beautiful views and the wonderful accommodations. Everything was perfect. We'll be back for sure.

Exceeded our expectations!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to get away to a peaceful, beautiful, neat, comfortable house with a breathtaking view, you found it!! We spent 5 days in this house where everything i needed was right there. Even a tea pot!!! I don't drink coffee and they had a tea pot! It is the small things that sometimes make the biggest differences. We rode motorcycle in the mornings and spent the rest of the day in the house, even when it rained we enjoyed the deck area under roof. The Ingles supermarket is less than 4 miles away! The landscape in the house is super nice. We saw deer walking in the back and front yard!! Make sure to take a walk up to the top of peaneckle rd, about 20 minutes and the view is unbelievable! The property manager could not be any nicer, everything he mentioned during our first conversation was accurate. He followed up to make sure our vacation experience was one of a kind. Well, you would think someone paid me to write this review but I assure you it's not the case, in Fact I never write reviews but this one really deserves it!!!! If you decide to stay here, enjoy it and take good care of it! Someone put a lot of work and thought into every detail. Great job! Thank you!!

Gorgeous NC Mountain Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our family used to have a house in the same vicinity; however, we sold the house a few years ago. It was such a blessing for us to reunite again in the Mountains of NC. This house was perfect for our group. Plenty of room to eat, play, nap, relax, cook, read, have Bible studies, and sleep. We could not have asked for a better home. The view is incredible and the parking is wonderful as well. The home was warm, welcoming, and clean. If you are looking for a house to rent, do not look any further; book this house immediately. Thank you Kent for sharing your house with our family. We hope to return again in the near future.

Exceeded any expectations we could have hoped for

  • 5 of 5

This property was beyond amazing. I was the first to walk through the door and the first glimpse in the door will let you know that you made the right decision. The landscaping outside the house is awesome. They have a waterfall feature and seating, that you don't get to see in the pictures, that will make you forget about where you are coming from. Grocery store and Walmart are only about a 12 minute drive away, so anything you need is available. The only negative about this place is some of the places you would want to visit will take you about 30-45 minutes to drive there, but the positive in it is you get to see plenty of beautiful sights on the way. You can spend your entire trip at the house if choose and you wont be disappointed in yourself. We only had one question about the place when we got there and Kent answered back right away. If you are looking for peace and quiet, we only saw one couple walking there dog in the area. The satellite image of the area will show about 4 houses right next to each other, but for our entire week we never saw any cars so i guess they are vacation properties for those families. We had a total of 9 people in our group (mom, dad, 3 kids, all 4 grand parents). We had plenty of room for everyone. Our kids would play around the house and never had to worry about them and traffic. We are from Texas and coming from 90 degree weather the high 70's and low 80's at the house was a great welcome. We had a few mornings where it was actually chilly. I can't recommend this property enough for anyone who would be interested in it. We are already working on dates for next years trip up. We want to come back in the winter, but it will be a necessity to have a four wheel drive vehicle, which we don't have at this time. Highest ratings from us and I'm sure you will have the same review if you stay here.

Lovely Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cabin. The view was super! It was clean, decorated tastefully and had everything we needed. We've rented several cabins over the years near this area, and this was the nicest by far. If we get a chance again, we will definitely come back!

Amazing Views and Comfortable Cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at the cabin for 5 nights and we absolutely loved the cabin. Very spacious, comfortable cabin with lovely light and beautiful mountain views. The fire pit is welcoming and jacuzzi is a plus. Rooms are comfortable and clean. The kitchen was easy to cook in and we loved the dining space which is very inviting. It is pretty high up the mountain so make sure you have 4 wheel drive or you won't get up in the winter time if there is ice. Kent was great to work with and super accommodating. We will be back!

'Sky High' is located in beautiful Ashe County, North Carolina nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains on Bald Mountain.

The county is home to some of the countries finest Christmas tree farms and is a wonderful place to start a family tradition of gathering your Christmas tree every year.

The closest town is West Jefferson, NC. This quaint mountain town is a great place to wander from shop to shop to find all sorts of treasures. There are several antique shops, arts & crafts, art galleries, clothing and general merchandise shops available for your shopping pleasure. Don't forget to visit the Ashe County Cheese Factory while you're in town. They offer many fine cheeses and wines.

Within a short 6 mile drive from 'Sky High' you'll find excellent dining. The Hotel Tavern offers some great meals with atmosphere at reasonable prices. Boondocks Restaurant offers up equally delicious food for our hungry guests. Both of these and several other eating establishments can be found in downtown West Jefferson.

Ashe County is fortunate to have the historic New River running through it. You can enjoy rafting, canoeing or kayaking almost year round. Several outfitters can provide all of the necessary equipment for a memorable river trip. If fly fishing is on your list then you'll discover many streams and creeks within a short drive of 'Sky High'.

You'll have to visit Mount Jefferson and take the easy hike to the top with your picnic lunch and camera. Views of the surrounding countryside make for some terrific vacation photos.

Some of our guests enjoy hiking and have found several trails nearby. The Appalachian Trail is about 20 miles north of 'Sky High'. You can load up your backpack or day pack and head up or down the trail. Grayson Highlands State Park provides sanctuary for wild ponies along the trail as well.

If you like to take a leisurely drive to see some outstanding vistas and historical sites then the Blue Ridge Parkway is for you. Getting to the Parkway is a short drive and well worth the trip. Be sure to take a lunch and find a comfortable shady tree along the way.

Winter in the mountains are great. You're a short hop to skiing from 'Sky High'. Sugar Mountain Resort, Beech Mountain Resort, Appalachian Ski Mountain are all anxious to provide some great skiing & tubing experiences.

You're also very close to Boone, Banner Elk and Blowing Rock. These towns all offer some excellent dining and shopping opportunities. After a day of shopping you'll appreciate the quiet and comfort of 'Sky High'.

Plan your next company retreat or team building event right here at 'Sky High'. There's plenty of room for your function.

There's nothing like sipping a glass of your favorite beverage while rocking on the deck trying to count the mountain tops. The 50 mile view is worth the trip.
