About the property

4 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom With Stone Steps Taking You Right Down To The River.

Enjoy a peaceful stay on the banks of the North Fork of the New River just 10 minutes from the 'quaint' town of West Jefferson. Our Cabin is located in the sub-division of 'Bent River Estates' off of Silas Creek Rd. As you enter Bent River Estates you immediately cross the bridge over the river. Beautiful views up and down the river are the first things you see. One of the oldest trees in N.C. is focal point in the community along with the original 'Ole Home Place' cabin that is still being rented. Also, the rock spring house that was used to keep food cold is still there under the Oak tree. Bent River is made up of around 30 cabins and mountain homes. Some like ours are located directly on the banks of the River while others are scattered around the roads as they wind their way to the top of the mountain. The roads through the division are wonderful for walking or hiking. Deer and other wildlife are in abundance. The famous 'Shatley Springs Restaurant' is only a 10 minute drive from the cabin. In a 10 - 12 minute drive you can be to grocery stores, drug stores, a hospital, restaurants or the streets of West Jefferson. Inn West Jefferson you will find various shops and restaurants along with the Ashe County Cheese Factory. If you would like a larger town, Boone is only a 45 minute drive and several ski resorts are also in that area. Several State Parks are within a 15 minute drive such as The New River State Park and Mount Jefferson State Park. There are several Canoe expeditions in the area or you can bring your own and put in right at the Cabin.

About Susan Cobb

We looked at cabins in the higher elevations and along the rivers. Though we loved the views from 4000 feet...we ultimately came back to the water every time. There was no substitution for the fact that life flourishes around water and that is what we enjoyed the most. Scripture says that Jesus is the 'Living Water' and that He is where Eternal Life comes from. That truth is what we hope and pray our guest will experience during their stay in our cabin.

Susan Cobb purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Susan Cobb chose Lansing

We felt so blessed when God led us to this cabin It is close to attractions yet far enough out to be quiet and peaceful.

What makes this cabin unique

The fact that the house offered so much on the inside was important but there were also spaces on the outside such as multiple decks...a fire pit...stone steps going right down to the river that also offered many other opportunities.

Four couples enjoyed this great house located on the north fork of the New River. Giant, excellent TV downstairs. Parking for four cars is snug but very doable. Owner was very enjoyable and helpful.

Wonderful blessed weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful. Everything is where it was supposed to be. Directions were good. Everything you needed was in the home with extra supplies provided. Great location, not too far from anything we wanted to see. Shatley Springs restaurant was delicious. We visited the Episcopal Churches of the Frescoes and down town West Jefferson. Great little get away for our family.

A happy place on the New river...

  • 5 of 5

I had booked a 4 night stay at this property to celebrate a significant milestone birthday for my wife. Our two adult children with spouses and our granddaughter joins us for this time as well. The house is very clean and well maintained inside and out. The open floor plan made the house very comfortable for all. The kitchen is adequately stocked and we did cooking for some of the meals on site. This property overlooks the north fork of the New River and is accessible from the rear of the property. While we were there in the summer, access to the driveway might be an issue in the winter during inclement weather. We had a wonderful time together and would highly recommend this property to others.

Excellent mountain cabin with river access

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a long weekend at The Road Less Traveled and had a wonderful time with my adult children. The cabin is very well appointed and has everything you need for a pleasant stay. We really enjoyed the nice appointments, cozy furnishings and comfortable beds. Very convenient to West Jefferson for shopping and dining. We also enjoyed Boone and Blowing Rock and had a nice time at Sky Valley Zip line tours. Each of my kids said they would love to return again!

Come spend some time at the Cabin on 'The Road Less Traveled'. Spend quality family time by the fire pit enjoying the river sounds and roasting marshmallows or sitting on the deck down closer to the river listening to the crickets as the evening sun sets over the mountain with the Tiki torches burning. In the summer, sitting in the river chairs and relaxing as the cool river water gently flows by is a favorite. There are 2 covered decks that run the length of the Cabin with seating on both to continue enjoying the sights and sounds of the outdoors. The upper deck has a large gas grill for those evening cookouts. There is an open deck on the South side of the Cabin where the sun warms ou up from about 12:00 noon until evening.

On the inside of the Cabin we have a 46' Smart TV in the den and a 60' TV in the downstairs family room. Both are connected to Roku and cable to enjoy your favorite shows. WiFi is also available throughout the Cabin. In the family room downstairs you will find an 8' Pool Table for your enjoyment and a Kitchenette for all of your snacking needs. A large sofa that wraps around the 60' TV so everyone has plenty of room to relax and stretch out. There are 2 gas fireplaces for your in the den and one in the family room downstairs. All of the bedrooms have queen size beds and are decorated to provide you with a cozy, comfortable stay. Linens and plush blankets are provided for those cool mountain nights. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the utensils needed for preparing and enjoying meals. You will also find a Keurig ready to meet all of your coffee needs. (Just bring your favorite K-Cups.) Towels are also provided. Multiple lanterns with battery operated candles are found through out the house for that warm, cozy cabin feel. The loft is furnished with comfortable seating (2 recliners), cozy blankets and good lighting for reading a favorite book or simply taking a nap.
