About the property

3 Suites, One On Each Floor, Sleeps 6

Ruby Moon is a jewel of a house. This bright and airy home is not your typical mountain cabin. All of the finishes are top of the line, with granite counters, travertine baths, and wood floors throughout.

Ruby Moon has three levels of cozy beauty, with a bedroom and full bath on each floor. The first floor offers a fireplace in the bedroom with a queen size bed and direct access to the wraparound deck. The second level hosts another wraparound deck, the main room, kitchen and a king size bedroom. The upper floor offers a loft and private suite with a third bedroom and a king size bed. The loft is perfect for hanging out to read late into the night, or greet the day with a quiet cup of coffee. If you are a morning person, you will never see a prettier sunrise than from here. Enjoy luxurious surroundings and the panoramic view from every room in the house.

Big Tree Mountain is an established subdivision with paved roads that provide easy access to Ruby Moon. You feel above it all at 4,500 feet. As you relax on the covered decks, you can watch the cars travel through the hills below or see the lights flicker on as the day ends.

About Jeff Hill

Our daughter began college at ASU in the fall of 2012. Every time we went to visit her we drove around and looked at homes dreaming of one day having a place in the mountains. In the spring of 2015 we were driving around in West Jefferson and happened on this enchanting cottage. We were charmed by the house and amazed by the view. Later that afternoon, as we were heading home, Jeff suggested we drive by one more time. It was twilight as we pulled down the driveway. The moon began to rise over the mountains on the horizon. It was a magical moment! Later we realized that it was the night of the Blood Moon. As we drove home we discussed the house and agreed that if it was ours, we would honor that memory in the name. Hence, Ruby Moon.

Why Jeff Hill chose West Jefferson

Ruby is beautiful inside and captivating outside. The view is incredible during all seasons with covered decks for maximum comfort.

Beautiful place, beautiful view - our family spent hours on the deck enjoying the view!

  • 5 of 5

Ruby Moon was more than a delight! With spacious bedrooms, and 3 full bathrooms, along with a very nice kitchen equipped with everything a family would need! The view from all of the decks was just as described - breathtaking! Owner Jeff was very prompt with responding to any questions we had and was very easy to work with! Entire family was very happy with all that Ruby Moon had to offer! Will be recommending this place to friends and family!

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Ruby Moon has the best panoramic views, an easy drive, well appointed lovely home, and the owner is so nice to wok with. We even got to see the red moon one evening.

It was awesome! Loved the hummingbirds and the deer that came every day. This was our second stay at Ruby Moon and we will be back in the Fall. Lovely vacation!

Spectacular mountain home !

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Ruby Moon was the most pleasant, peaceful, wonderful experience. Very comfortable outdoor seating made for a relaxing time in the afternoon and evenings with that awesome view in front of you. The location is great with Grandfather mountain and Boone area to the south and Grayson Highlands state park to the north just a few miles each and many other surrounding area attractions. We love the area with all the mountain scenery and hiking trails. Although rare I'm sure, we did a see a black bear near the house and one at Grayson. Thanks to the owner, instructions are easy to follow for whatever you need to know. We loved it here!

And yes, the place is very clean.

Great home with outstanding views

  • 5 of 5

I've rented cabins in this area for several years and this rental had by far the best views. The home is well furnished with attention to detail. Thoroughly enjoyed our week in the mountains and Ruby Moon.

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing time and the owner was very helpful. The cabin was clean, comfortable, and had breathtaking views! While we had a few neighbors, it was still secluded and quiet and really allowed for quality family time!. A+ experience!

Car: necessary

When at Ruby Moon, you are less than 15 minutes from West Jefferson, which offers several grocery and drug stores, as well as a charming downtown area with fun shops and great restaurants. If you are interested in a day trip, you are 30 minutes from Boone, a vibrant college town with lots to explore. After a leisurely 45 minute ride via the Blue Ridge Parkway, you can be in Blowing Rock, an enchanting mountain town with lots of shops and restaurants to try. For the adventuresome types, the tiny town of Todd is only 15 minutes away. This unspoiled spot offers several miles of flat, bike riding heaven along the New River on Railroad Grade Road. The New River is also a perfect spot to fish or kayak.

There is truly something for everyone, from skiing to Tweetsie Railroad and antiquing to fishing, there is an activity for every taste. Or you might just want to hang out and enjoy the best view in the mountains!
