About the property

2 bed/2 bath cabin nestled on 2 private wooded acres w/hot tub. New River access

Are you looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life? Why not escape into the Wil-deer-ness! This secluded log cabin nestled on 2 wooded acres off a private road is located just minutes from the towns of West Jefferson and Boone in the North Carolina mountains. Access to the New River is only a short walk from the cabin down a nature trail. Go fishing, put in your kayaks or canoes, or just cool off on a warm summer day. The path and clearing by the river are completely owned by Wil-deer-ness Cabin. The river area is for our guests only, it is NOT a public access area. This cozy, two bedroom, two bath cabin which sleeps up to five people, comes fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy a relaxing, peaceful and memorable vacation. The cabin is fully furnished, linens included, all kitchenware provided and offers lots of activities. Relax on the covered wrap-around porch, surf the internet, watch a DVD from the DVD library or catch your favorite satellite TV shows on the 32' LCD TV. Lounge in the 5 person outdoor Jacuzzi Hot Tub, read a book in the hammock, enjoy a friendly game of horseshoes or make s'mores and tell stories around the fire pit.

There are plenty of local attractions to keep you busy when you go out for the day. You'll discover many fine restaurants, championship golf courses, winter ski resorts, antique and craft shops and many cultural events. You can go fishing, canoeing or tubing on the New River or visit Mt. Jefferson State Park. Other attractions include Grandfather Mountain, Blue Ridge Parkway, Tweestie Railroad, Mast General Store in Valle Cruis, Linville Caverns and much more! Wil-deer-ness cabin is also conveniently located near the Tennessee-Virginia border.

About Michael & Donetta

Think of what you want your vacation to be like and make it what we did with Wil-deer-ness Cabin. We're always striving to make it the best it can be and are actively involved with our cabin. We manage the cabin completely on our own which means you and the cabin get our personal attention. Many rentals are managed through management companies which have so many properties they can't give the time and attention that's deserved to each property. Those owners might make it to their property once a year, if that. And we all know, no one is going to take pride in and give extra care to a property the way the owner will. That's why we handle everything from advertising, to bookings, to maintenance and follow-up on our own. We don't want to trust someone else to make our cabin want to know it is firsthand. We are there personally at least once a month to make sure everything is in good working order. We listen to our guests. We always ask for feedback after every stay and take your suggestions seriously. We have implemented many guest recommendations over the years which is why our guests return over and over again. We feel vacations should be a time to make family memories, give your relationship an extra spark, and just relax & unwind. At Wil-deer-ness Cabin you can do just take care of everything else!

Michael & Donetta purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Michael & Donetta chose Blue Ridge Mountains

We are originally from a small mountain town and fell in love with West Jefferson. We wanted to offer a beautiful cabin to others at a reasonable price and great value. When vacationing ourselves, we love our privacy which is the main reason we chose the location we did for Wil-deer-ness Cabin. It's close enough to town for restaurants and activities if you want to venture out. But if you want to be completely surrounded by nature and never leave the cabin your entire stay you'll be perfectly happy here.

What makes this cabin unique

We have stayed at vacation rentals in various areas ourselves and learned from those experiences. Like everyone, we hate packing for vacation and almost always leave something behind. At Wil-deer-ness Cabin, we provide all the bedding, linens & paper products so you don't have to worry about them. A hair dryer is provided so that's one less thing to pack. Plan to arrive late but can't survive without your morning coffee? We provide complimentary coffee, tea, hot chocolate & more so you have some supplies to carry you over until you can make a grocery store run. What about rainy days? A lot of places may have outdoor activities but if you're stuck inside it's boring. Not at Wil-deer-ness Cabin! We have a full game chest, over 100 DVDs in the DVD library, and Satellite TV. You can even enjoy the porch in the rain since it's covered. The porch is also large enough you can set up the provided bean bag toss game on it and still enjoy an outdoor activity even in the rain. A lot of cabins advertise privacy & deliver it! Wil-deer-ness Cabin is the only cabin on our side of the road. There's nothing but trees completely surrounding the cabin. When the leaves are on the trees you can't even see the gravel road you entered on in front of the cabin. The peace & quiet here is unbelievable. Don't take our word for it though, read through our reviews both here and on our website to see what our past guests had to say. Then contact us to book your stay at Wil-deer-ness won't be disappointed!

Perfect !!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cabin for a quick getaway from our busy world, and to check out the area to see if it is where we want to buy our mountain house/retirement home. It is !!! We loved the area and would buy this cabin in a heartbeat if the owners would sell, (hint, hint). Our favorite thing about this cabin was the outdoor speakers. We loved sitting in the hot tub and being able to listen to the radio (very nice touch) . The owners have thought about everything and have put a lot of effort and time into making sure you are comfortable and well taken care of. Hopefully we will own our own mountain house soon but if we don't we will definitely be back.

Comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

What a great place. Enjoyed the cabin, a very comfortable atmosphere. Great location close to lots of places we wanted to visit. Enjoyed your sense of humor on the trail to the river! Saw several deer on the morning we left and enjoyed sitting on the porch listening to the spring bird song. Hope to stay again!

Wonderful Romantic Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is beautiful. Very secluded and quite. Be fully aware the drive way is very very steep. Need a 4wheel drive or a running start to get up it. My only dislike...

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, not everyone is familiar with driving on gravel roads. Our cabin is only 1/4 mile off of the state-maintained paved road (unlike many cabins in the area). The driveway is fairly steep, but does not require 4 wheel drive in normal weather conditions. We do recommend chains or 4-wheel drive when there is a chance of more than a couple inches of snow - and all of our guests are informed of that in the rental agreement and reminded a few days prior to check-in. Under normal weather conditions, we have personally driven front wheel drive and rear wheel drive vehicles easily up the driveway. In over 6 years of renting the cabin, no other guests have mentioned having problems with the driveway in regular front/rear-wheel drive vehicles. You can see a photo of the driveway in the photos included with our VRBO listing - it's 150-200 feet long, gravel, and is on an incline. We replied only to make sure future guests are not scared away by this review as 4-wheel drive is definitely NOT required.

Wil-deer-ness Cabin is located just outside Jefferson & West Jefferson in the North Carolina mountains. These towns offer everything you'll need during your stay - activities, parks, restaurants, & shopping.

However, if you have a specific activity in mind, we're centrally located near many other areas as well. The cabin is only a short 30 minute drive to the town of Boone, NC. The towns of Blowing Rock and Banner Elk are only a few minutes more down the road. The cabin is also only a 20-30 minute drive to the Virginia border or about 45 minutes to the Tennessee border. So no matter where your plans take you, Wil-deer-ness Cabin is the perfect place to call home while you explore all the area has to offer.

Wil-deer-ness Cabin is secluded and peaceful and we do everything we can to keep it that way for our guests. To cut down on traffic noise from cars driving by to 'take a look' and to preserve the privacy of our current guests we do not provide an exact address on our website or anytime before booking. Detailed directions to the cabin will be provided when you reserve your dates, return the signed rental agreement and have paid in full. Wondering how long it will take you to get to the cabin? Map your route to West Jefferson, NC and the cabin is about a 10 minute drive from there.
