About Mark Spicer

My wife and I live I the Chapel Hill/Durham area with our three young children. We both grew up visiting the NC Mountains for vacations and fell in love with idea of having a place of our own! The West Jefferson area provides rest and relaxation along with many places to visit. The quaint downtown offers all you could imagine in a small town; including a cheese factory. The Boone/Blowing Rock area is just a short 30 minute drive. Our family enjoys visits to Mast General Store, mining for gems, picnicking on the Parkway and tubing the New River. The river also provides kayaking, fishing and rafting.

Mark Spicer purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Mark Spicer chose West Jefferson

West Jefferson is only 2 1/2 hours from our home in Hillsborough, so it's perfect for a weekend getaway!

What makes this cabin unique

Everything you want in a mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a big house with lots of room. It is a beautiful rustic feel and feels secluded in its surroundings. We had 2 families (4 adults, 4 kids) and had plenty of space to relax and enjoy the mountains. Very clean. Large deck. Comfortable beds. Highly recommended.

My family had a wonderful weekend away and we enjoyed our stay at Rustic Retreat. The cabin couldn’t have been more perfect. Very clean, loads of kitchen utensils, linens, etc. Overal comfort from the beds to couches, beautiful fireplace, and tv with satellite/cable. The location was perfect also to feel isolated yet just a quick drive to the Walmart complex or 20 mins into Boone. Property owner was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful with booking last minute. We are already looking at the calendar to come stay again!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful cabin! Lots of room. And I absolutely loved the kitchen. Plenty of room to move around and lots of counter space. Pretty much everything you’d need. Had a couple issues upon check in but the Mr Spicer was very prompt in handling the situation and kept checking back to make sure things were ok. The trundle bed upstairs and extra couch came in handy for extra company that came by for a visit. West Jefferson is a lovely little town. Definitely visit the Ashe County Cheese Plant right down town. We actually went a couple times. There are also some really neat stores and the Bohemian coffee shop had good coffee. There’s a nice park behind the library in West Jefferson right down town that the kids loved also. Boone and Blowing Rock aren’t far. Make sure you visit the Mast General store in Boone and the original one in Valle Crucis. We’ll be back!

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 4 nights at the Rustic Retreat. It was a get away trip for 5 women who have been friends since college (50 years now). We all loved the cabin and enjoyed sitting in front of the fireplace each evening. The cabin is roomy and well equipped although we didn’t do any cooking. We enjoyed the restaurants and shops in West Jefferson and Blowing Rock and had a great walk at the Moses Cone area on the BR Parkway. We would love to go back to Rustic Retreat to explore more of the area.
