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 West Jefferson

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

Wonderful and comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed with a few friends and were thrilled with our stay! We have stayed in probably 8-12 houses over the year. Often we are closer to the Boone/blowing rock area but have stayed near West Jefferson and in TN before, and this was the nicest home. All the rooms are great and our room had an awesome memory foam bed! The hot tub was the largest/had the most jets as well - sometimes hot tubs feel a bit run down and not the best, but not this one! The host was wonderful and was super responsive to all of my text/emails - plus he lives next door so you really get the white glove service! We would definitely like to return again - thanks, Kent.

Absolutely Amazing Cabin!!!!

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed staying in this clean, cozy, amazingly beautiful cabin! The views are unbelievable, the house was even better than described, and Kent went above and beyond to answer questions, help when needed, and was quick with all replies. We cannot say enough great things about this property and about Kent. Our only suggestion would be that if you're staying during the winter, be sure you're prepared with a 4 wheel drive to get up/down the mountain. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

Beautiful home with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the week of Christmas. The home was decorated with a Christmas tree and other festive items around the home. It snowed on Christmas Day. The home was very clean and enough room for everyone to have their own space. The View from the living room and master bedroom was amazing. The neighborhood is very quiet. Thank you for the beautiful stay we had!

Amazing weekend in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Just spent an amazing weekend at Sky High. The house was immaculate and so beautiful. We were all thrilled to see it fully decked out for the season with beautiful lights on the trees outside and a Christmas tree inside. All the accommodations were extremely comfortable and it was the perfect place to get away, relax, and unwind. Kent was extremely helpful and reached out several times to make sure our group felt comfortable and could make it to the house safely despite the inclement weather. One recommendation is if there is going to be snow 4 wheel drive is extremely helpful to make it up the mountain. Thank you for a great weekend!

Fantastic place to stay and enjoy everything!

  • 5 of 5

My family and my brother's family enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving at SkyHigh in West Jefferson. The views were amazing and the property gave us a real opportunity to catch up and relax. We also visited West Jefferson and had a ball. It's a hopping mountain town and was so much fun for the kids too. We picked out our Christmas tree and it proudly sits in our foyer in Raleigh. Obviously, we'll be coming back to visit and will make SkyHigh our destination.

'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.
