About Carolyn and Keith Dowdy

We purchased this beautiful log home as a vacation home to share with our friends and large family. My husband and I live in Apex North Carolina, a 3 hour car ride from the cabin. We enjoy spending time at the cabin with our four children and extended family. We enjoy renting out the cabin for others to enjoy when we can't be there. We hope you enjoy the place and make your own special memories.

Carolyn and Keith Dowdy purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Carolyn and Keith Dowdy chose Blue Ridge Mountains

We chose to purchase the property because of its location in the mountains for its year around enjoyment. The roads are also easy to manuver and you don't need a 4x4 to get to this property. We enjoy the 3,000 ft altitude in the summer giving us a perfect average temperature in the summer of 75F. The fall is amazing with the changing of the leaves. Winter brings the holiday season with many Christmas tree farms in the area and shops dedicated to all the trimmings of the season. Appalachian Ski Mountain is the closest ski resort at about 30 miles. Spring is a perfect time to see all the beautiful flowers and Mountain Laurel. Golfing in the area is available in the warmer months.

What makes this cabin unique

The North Carolina mountains are unique and attract visitors from all over the world for its natural beauty of its people and landscape.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My friends and I had a wonderful time! Carolyn was very helpful and answers any questions I had. We loved the house and the area around it! Beautiful views on the blue ridge parkway nearby and great food in West Jefferson! I would definitely recommend this place and would love to come back again!

Beautiful cabin in serene setting!

  • 5 of 5

Beaver Creek Hill cabin is a beautiful hidden retreat in West Jefferson! The cabin decor is perfect with plenty of North Carolina mountain charm! The cabin has everything you need to relax and enjoy your stay. The kitchen is top notch and fully stocked! The bedrooms are beautiful and comfy. We loved the outdoor fire pit and the creek on the property was fun to explore. The outdoor porch bed is amazing and we could not decide if we loved it more inside or out! We enjoyed exploring West Jefferson and antiquing in the many shops.

Beaver Creek Hill

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our 4 day getaway at Beaver Creek Hill Cabin. Owners were very accessible via email and answered all our questions prior to arrival. West Jefferson is such a quaint town with fun shops. Loved our time at the cabin, kitchen was fully stocked with dishes and cooking needs. Loved that each bedroom basically had their own bathroom which is nice when traveling with others. hoping to return in spring/summer to enjoy the property more when not so cold.

Family Weekend at Beaver Creek Hill Log Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this log cabin tucked away in the mountains of West Jefferson from the first moment we saw it. The colors, the decor, and all the special touches make you feel as though you have left the hustle and bustle of life behind. The privacy of the cabin and the surrounding area with the rushing creek add to the peacefulness you feel here. The open kitchen, dining area, and porch are wonderful for family time, but you can go to your bedroom for privacy when needed. Six can comfortably sleep here while two more can sleep on the pullout couch or air mattress in the den downstairs. We enjoyed the campfire at night as well. Carolyn gave us all the information we needed to enjoy our stay, and we are grateful to her family for sharing their home away from home. We hope to return one day soon.

Beautiful, peaceful, family friendly

Our family had a wonderful Thanksgiving at the cabin. We could not have asked for a better place for our holiday. Thank you to the Dowdy's for sharing your fantastic cabin with us. We loved sitting on the porch watching the sun come up, listening to the creek below. The city and hustle and bustle of life is left behind at this cabin.

Awesome cabin in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our first visit to the NC mountains (with my parents and teenagers). Everything was perfect! We had weather in the 70's and the gorgeous comfortable cabin was better than the pictures. It was like walking into a magazine! The cabin is welcoming from the time you step out of your car! Special touches can be seen throughout the home. We loved the colorful artwork, mountain theme decorations, high-end furniture and hardwoods! The cabin is conveniently located with beautiful scenery from all angles. I give the cabin five stars because everyone had their own comfortable space for retreating and relaxing, plenty of room to sit or rock on the porch and listen to the water from the stream below. We could all eat together together in the kitchen and watch movies downstairs in the family room. It took us some time to figure out the cable channels, but we were able to find movies we could all enjoy. As others have noted, it is very clean and has top of the line appliances. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need, just bring the food to make your family happy! West Jefferson downtown area was great for shopping and restaurants, and not far away you can travel for day trips to Boone, Blowing Rock and Grandfather Mountain. Carolyn the owner was available for questions and she gave great suggestions. She went the extra mile to make this a wonderful weekend vacation. We hope to return in the spring or fall next year! Thanks for an awesome experience!

Beautiful log cabin with rushing sounds of Beaver Creek flowing 24/7 nearby. Home is surrounded by forest for perfect privacy, yet the Town of Jefferson is just minutes away. The Town of West Jefferson is a small town with lots of charming country stores. Ashe Lake and waterfalls are upstream about a quarter mile hike. Information will be provided on where to find white water rafting, hunting, kayaking, caverns, gem mining, art festivals, hiking trails and downhill skiing/ snowboarding. The town of Boone and Blowing Rock are a short drive from the cabin.
