About Kay Irvin
We live in Morganton, NC and are both retired. We love to travel, and appreciate most when we are able to stay in a place that has a story, and that has a warmth about it that you just can’t find in a hotel. So, we have finally decided to share our cabin with others and hope that everyone will enjoy it as much as we do.
Kay Irvin purchased this Cabin in 1985
Why Kay Irvin chose Jonas Ridge
We purchased the property for this home in 1985 and years later, when our two children were in their pre-teen years, we decided that we should have a family bonding project of building a mountain cabin. What began as a family project has turned into our family haven. We enjoy the opportunity to retreat to this special place, where we relish in being on 'Cabin Time,' a time we can all just sit back and cherish the beauty of the mountains and the company of loved ones.
What makes this Cabin unique
This area is to us, the perfect spot. We are all outdoor enthusiasts and this location provides wonderful opportunities for adventures throughout every season of the year; hiking, swimming, skiing, universities, golfing, local southern culture, mountain wineries, biking, rock climbing and being just minutes away from Pisgah National Forest. After playing outside all day, there is nothing quite like coming back to the cabin and enjoying a cup of coffee or glass of wine on the deck, taking in the beautiful scenery.
Sports & Adventure Activities
While in the area for a sporting event, we searched for a place for our family to stay and were most pleased with our selection!!! The cabin was perfectly appointed with all the basic necessities and more! Very clean, cozy bedding, extremely well maintained and the setting was beyond gorgeous! We had plenty of room for the 6 of us and just loved the gas fireplace logs:) Our kids had fun exploring the grounds and the nearby town of Morganton had plenty of shops, restaurants, groceries etc. We only wish we could’ve had more time and been able to enjoy more local hikes and sites! We thoroughly recommend the location!
Thank you for the great review and for choosing us for your visit.
Cabin was great, spacious and clean. Was approx 25 minutes from the slopes. Cabin came with all the necessary linens, dishes and cookware. Overall great experience with this cabin.
Kay's cabin was wonderful for our stay. It was very clean and cozy. The kitchen has everything you need from a crockpot to a coffee grinder. Wish the weather had been nicer on Saturday evening to enjoy the fire pit. Short drive to some awesome hiking trails!
Highly recommend and will stay here again!
Thank you for the kind review. We hope you will be able to come back and enjoy the NC mountains and fire pit soon.
We had a very relaxing long weekend. The house was very clean. It has everything you may need if you decide to cook in and the property is well maintained. We enjoyed a local backwoods forestry service road that took us over to the gorge. Very nice ride. I'm sure we will be back. Thank you for letting us use your place.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the kind review and we hope you will be able to visit with us again.
Great place to relax
This home was a very well-equipped and comfortable place to spend a long weekend (or more), either on the deck, at the fire pit or inside! We will likely return before too long. It also has good access to numerous trails at the gorge. Hint: if you plan to hike, make sure you print detailed trail maps before you leave home as they are not always easy to find and the wilderness trails are not marked with blazes or signage in most cases, and cell phone access is sketchy in many places.
Thank you for the review and the hint about the wilderness trails for future guest. We are long time locals and still are finding new adventures hikes. Hope you can return.
We are so very grateful to have found this cabin.
Our stay was even BETTER than we expected! Cabin was super clean, very well stocked, nice comfortable beds and pillows, beautiful view, delightful sitting area's on the deck, and perfect set up with the two bedrooms upstairs, and the big bedroom/family room downstairs!
Our only complaint - LOL- is we came to look for a place to buy, and we found nothing as nice as this cabin!
What a special place you have! Thank you again Kay and Mike we really enjoyed our stay!
