Wonderful mountain getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was amazing. We stayed at the home for 2 nights. We arrived to 4 inches of snow and woke up the next morning to about 7 inches. The house sits on a large open property that allowed lots of room for the kids to play. The house itself had lots of room and seperate spaces for us to gather. I also envision this being a wonderful place to gather for a trip down the new river. Great place. No complaints. And the view is spectacular

Stunning view. Private. Nicely appointed. This was far and away the best value I've ever experienced

  • 5 of 5

Stunning view. Private. Nicely appointed. This was far and away the best value I've ever experienced. The house comfortably fit 8 adults. Do not worry about the lack of AC. We visited during August and it was not an issue. I tend to overheat easily. It was a nice touch to find window-mount fans near the kitchen, though. That kept the room cool enough for me to forget about a window AC.

A working dishwasher made clean-up easy. There was a large electric skillet that made cooking for the crew a breeze. Downstairs had an "in-law" kitchen if you were going to try to really go above and beyond on the cooking. There was a respectable flat screen downstairs. I heard nary a complaint on the comfort of the beds and futons. The router was blazing fast. I've got the same one on my Christmas list, now.

The house was clean. No need to check in, either. Simply show up and relax. There isn't much nearby, really. Jefferson isn't a sprawling metropolis, and you should know that already. There is a canoeing rental agency on the river very nearby. That will take up nearly a whole day if you want it to. Go to this property to get away and connect with friends. You will really need to find your own entertainment.

I'd recommend that the owners fix the air hockey and pool tables. They left a bit to be desired. The pool table was comically unbalanced. It became an awesome joke, though. It was like combining Putt-Putt and pool into one game. On second thought, it may be okay that way. These are small complaints that in no way take away from this property. I cannot undersell the view. Grab some friends and go.

Beautiful vacation home for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

My whole family loved this house. It was clean and well maintained and everything was as described. There were plenty of things for the kids to do (play outside, pool table, air hockey, ping pong, Wi-Fi) and the views were amazing! My picky 14 year old nephew even said he loved it. They also already have everything baby proofed, from guards in the electrical sockets to having extra doorway gates available so my two year old stayed safe. We loved this house and will definitely be back!

A Spiritual Retreat Must!

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed here so many times, twice to lead a retreat for Garden of Hope Ministries. Perfect for a private getaway or to take time to disconnect from the outside world and recharge. The grounds, I believe, are anointed by ab awesome Creator. You can enjoy His artwork the best at sunset and sunrise! Though there are a few updates needed - the house is fully equipped and offers everything you need!

Wonderful view

  • 4 of 5

The house was not exactly as described in the listing. There was no air conditioning as listed, and the grill that we were told personally was a gas grill was actually a charcoal grill. Because of this we ended up eating dinner the first night at 10 PM. The yard swing had tall weeds under it that should have been mowed and there were no chairs on the deck to enjoy the view. The pool table went unused as it was uneven and all the balls fell into the holes on one side with no effort at all. Another thing we noted was that the literature and direction postings in the house had discrepancies. It would be nice to have all information be the same.

On the positive end of things, the view is wonderful from the deck and from the gazebo. We took many pictures. The house is fully equipped and was clean. Fortunately, there were fans to use in the windows or we would have been very warm. We also enjoyed a movie night on the TV downstairs, as well as playing with the pegged Chinese Checkers board. Roasting marshmellows was also a highlight of our visit.

All in all it was a good visit. I would just like to have accurate information prior to arrival so it can be planned for. I wonder if the web site has a template that no one altered to actually fit the property as far as the amenities are concerned. We thank you for sharing the fantastic view with us and for the fans.

Owner's Response: We so love hearing when folks enjoy this home... we never tire of seeing this incredible view and enjoy sharing it with others. We have added some porch furniture and are continually working to improve the amenities at Sunset on the Blue Ridge. Our home is cooled by wonderful mountain breezes and particularly the lower level stays cool year round. We hope you will join us again at Sunset on the Blue Ridge and enjoy all that the Blue Ridge Mountains have to offer.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

A while back I went to this house and I can't wait for an opportunity to go again. Easy to get to from our home in Greensboro NC. Needed time away and not in the mood for disappointment. Took my family up to this house and had a great time. House is well built, nicely furnished, clean and everything works. The view and surroundings are so beautiful. Found several good places to eat within a 30 minute drive. We stayed here, enjoyed it and traveled out from this house into the region in general. We had a lot of fun. Great house! Great Memories.

Sunset over the Blue Ridge is situated in the mountains of North Carolina, less than a mile off the Blue Ridge Parkway, mile marker 268. For the outdoor lovers, you will want to take a scenic drive along the Parkway, where natural wonders abound.. If you drive in the evening, don't forget to be watchful for eyes shining in the distance...deer and other wildlife all around. Enjoy many overlooks and views from all around from the Parkway!

The home is situated less than 10 minutes from the amenities of The New River State Park.

Glendale Springs is home to the Blue Ridge Dinner Theater, only a few miles from Sunset over the Blue Ridge. This weekend venue offers the best buffet dinner around, followed by a show.. Artists vary but have included Rod Stewart, Neil Diamond, Dolly Parton and other tribute artists.

Less than a fifteen minute drive to the historic downtown area of West Jefferson NC, where tourists and locals alike enjoy strolling the downtown area where art galleries, shops, restaurants abound.. On the Back Street in downtown West Jefferson be sure to visit the Farmer's Market each Saturday and Wednesday morning throughout the spring, summer and fall seasons. The Ashe County Cheese factory is a stop you won't want to miss, one of only two cheese production factories in North Carolina... this one offers a viewing room where you can watch cheese being made, and best of all, a shop where you can sample the various cheeses, as well as a selection of sauces, dressings, mustards, and wines. They ship too, so you can send some home to the folks.

Downtown West Jefferson is home to several nice restaurants, bars and eateries. Hotel Tavern is a new facility in the remodeled Old Hotel where the train depot used to run through the downtown area. On up the street, you will find Boondock's, a restaurant and brewery for local craft beers, Sweet and Savory Bakery and Deli, a cozy little sandwich and pastry shop, and other restaurants with taste options for all!

The Ashe County Arts Center, situated in downtown West Jefferson, as well serves as a gallery for local artists and craftsmen and also has an event of some type in the works, from the local Gallery Crawl events, to various displays of local art.

At the Ashe Civic Center, on Mt. Jefferson Road, you can find everything from blue grass music on Saturday mornings, to local Little Theatre productions and cultural events and activities from across the country.

While you are in the downtown, be sure to stop by the Ashe Chamber of Commerce where publications and pamphlets, maps, and other items are free and some local products promoting West Jefferson and the Ashe County area can be purchased.

If you feel like a hike or want to just drive up and enjoy the scenic overlooks, the Mt. Jefferson State Park offers breathtaking views of the surrounding area and with the elevation...don't be surprised if you are looking DOWN on a hawk or other flying visitor.

In the fall, the colors in the mountains are OUTSTANDING.. with the first to third weekends of October, typically being peak for leaf lookers. You won't want to miss this area in the fall.

For more cultural events as well as sports activities, the town of Boone is a mere 30 minute or so drive. Home of Appalachian State University, Boone offers a variety of shops, restaurants, and is a mecca for all that is new and exciting in the world from cuisine to clothing to arts and crafts.
