About Dusty Godfrey

My husband Jaime and I, Dusty, love to travel, camp, ski and spend time on Watauga Lake. We love doing about anything outside!

Why Dusty Godfrey chose Blue Ridge Mountains

There is no better place to return to after a day of adventure than Bethel Valley. It is so serene and peaceful. The community members care about each other and create an extremely safe step back into time.

What makes this house unique

This property is unique in that it is a fresh and clean place situated nicely between Boone, Linville, Bristol, Watauga Lake and Damascus.

We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Our family absolutely LOVED our time here! So much so that we didn't want to leave and my 7-year old son has declared that this is his "other" home. We truly LOVED being here and look forward to coming back again and again. The house is super clean, super comfy and the owners, Dusty and Jamie are just amazing and so hospitable. We look forward to when we can come back again. We've found our spot! :-)

Everything was perfect! Great house and an even better host!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four spent a week here July 29-August 5 and we had a wonderful stay. The drive out to the house was beautiful, winding through the mountains as we passed by farms and pastures. The location was out of the way enough that we felt like we were out in the country, but at the same time there were several cities within a 25-35 minute drive, and a couple more in the 60-90 minute range so we always had plenty to do. During the week we spent time in Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk, Bristol (TN/VA), Abington (VA), and Johnson City (TN).

We also spent plenty of time at the house, and we were pleased with everything about it! Dusty contacted us beforehand to find out our needs - so when we told her that we were bringing along a two-year old and a two-month old, she had toys laid out and a pack n' play set up for us when we arrived. There was also breakfast food, and there were a couple other nice surprises as well.

The house was very nicely furnished and is exactly as pictured in the listing. We all slept upstairs, and the beds up there were very comfortable. The showers worked perfectly (toiletries and lots of nice towels were provided), the kitchen had everything you could possibly need, the wifi was fast and reliable, and the cable TV was nice to have too. And the view from the house was amazing - I wish we would have had even more time to spend outside and enjoy it.

Dusty was a great host from start to finish. As I mentioned, everything we needed (and more!) was right there waiting for us when we arrived, and throughout our visit Dusty was always available via text to help us with any questions we had. But really, because of all the preparation that was done upfront, we didn't have any issues or questions to ask. Dusty sent us directions that made our arrival easy, and there was a book on the coffee table that had important info such as the wifi password, garbage pickup info, and checkout instructions.

So to sum it up, we couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our first vacation as a family of four - everything went perfectly! If/when we return to the area we will definitely check here first to see if we can stay here again!

Great place with southern hospitality

  • 5 of 5

The place was so neat and clean. The owners kept in contact with us throughout our stay. They had games set up for us outside and plenty inside as well. There was a lot of room to run around outside and we enjoyed the local walking track and playground facility. There was a country store nearby for our convenience. The owners had supplied us with some food items to get our morning started off right. This property is exactly as it appears in the pictures. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to being able to stay here again.

A little piece of heaven.

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely property. The location is perfect for making day trips to Boone, Blowing Rock, Grandfather Mountain and more. We enjoyed hearing back in early evening, sitting by the fire pit sourounded by fireflies with a breathtaking view of the mountains. It is a great location to relax, unplug, and watch the sun set. The house was welcoming and clean and had everything we needed and more. Dusty is an amazing host. Thank you for sharing your beautiful property with us.

Great, cozy stay

  • 5 of 5

This place is just perfect! Beautiful views, surrounded by hills, the house was clean and beautifully maintained and decorated. Dusty, our host was more than welcoming and ready to help. She answered all of our questions, gave us directions for the area and also provided fresh eggs, preserves and English muffins that were absolutely delicious for breakfast! Definitely planning to go back for a longer stay!
