WE INVITE YOU TO RELAX AND REJUVENATE AT THE CABIN AT KILKELLYS!
Perched high on a finger ridge of the Eastern Continental Divide, in a gorgeous pristene area of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Kilkelly's luxurious CABIN provides amazing long-range views, fully comparable to those seen from nearby Blue Ridge Parkway overlooks. In this unique 22-acre setting, you are surrounded by tall mountains and deep valleys, while privately nestled among flowers and gardens. Privacy was key in locating the CABIN. It is several hundred yards down the ridge from the Main House, out of sight and sound. And there are no other buildings or dwellings within sight or sound.
The remarkable long-range and layered views from the CABIN are seen from a high and vaulted prospective, extending over 100 miles across natural, undisturbed woodlands and fields! Sunrises and sunsets are varied and magnificent. It's also a perfect place to experience dramatic weather changes and cloud formations -- above you and below! And at night, it's a star gazer's dream! With no city lights, the stars are bright and plentiful (we furnish binoculars). And there are no highways nearby, or traffic noise to interfere with orchestral sounds of nature. And WOW, we have NO MOSQUITOES! Kind of a mountain paradise.
The CABIN itself is a custom 1600 SF, upscale cedar log home. It has two King bedroom suites, two pull-out sofas, two full baths, a fully appointed and stocked kitchen, a large gas grill, comfortable dining for six (inside and out), fine living room couches and swivel-rocker chairs, and a stone gas fireplace. There is a small pantry, lots of cabinet space, a game room with an indoor shuffleboard, and four wide-screen HD TVs with DVRs and DVDs (one with 3D). On the outside is a covered front porch, and open deck wrap around to an elevated attached gazebo, a lower patio with a 6-person Jacuzzi, lounge chairs, hammocks, and swings. We also have outdoor play areas and equipment for children and adults, including a 45-foot rope swing, a geo-dome, a standard swing set, a regulation horse shoe pit, and a stone fire pit. And of course, many adjacent and nearby walking trails, streams, and cascades.
The Blue Ridge Parkway entrance at Bamboo Gap is only 1/3 mile from the CABIN, and Boone and Blowing Rock are just minutes away. Mileage distances: Boone downtown 5mi.; Blowing Rock downtown 8mi.; Appalachian Ski Mtn. 6mi.; Hawksnest Tubing & Zip Line Resort 18mi.; dSugar Mtn. Ski Resort 22mi.; Beech Mtn. Ski Resort 28mi; Banner Elk 22mi.; Grandfather Mtn. 19mi.; Linville Gorge Falls 34mi.; Mt. Mitchell 71mi.; Asheville 100mi.; West Jefferson 26mi.; Charlotte 100mi.; and HEAVEN -- 0mi.!
Our goal is to share this remarkable natural setting with our guests by providing private, warm and luxurious accommodations, and a memorable visit to the Blue Ridge Mountains.
WE WOULD LOVE TO WELCOME YOU TO THE CABIN AT KILKELLYS.
Joanie and Gary Kilkelly

Joanie & Gary Kilkelly purchased this cabin in 2009
We are fortunate to live on a beautiful ridge that joins the Blue Ridge Parkway, midway between Blowing Rock and Boone. Wanting to share with others our magnificent year-round views of the mountains, we designed and built the CABIN on a private bluff further out our ridge and well apart from our Main House.
Our mission is to provide our visitors with a rare combination of luxurious surroundings in the midst of some of the most rugged mountain beauty in the Appalachians.

This was absolutely the most relaxing getaway for our family of 4. The cabin is beautiful & perfect! The kids loved the shuffle board. Gary & Joanie are wonderful & were so gracious to us. We will definitely be coming back & can't wait! Thank you so very much! This place is awesome!
This cabin is absolutely amazing -- in every way!!! It is beautiful, comfortable, cozy, immaculate, and peaceful! The views are truly outstanding, and the location is perfect! The Kilkelly's are the quintessential hosts and have attended to every possible detail!! We enjoyed everything so much -- from the gorgeous landscaping everywhere to the super-comfortable bedding to the well-stocked kitchen, and I could just go on and on about so much more!! For instance, we loved watching the goldfinches, cardinals, bluebirds and hummingbirds busily feeding right outside the windows! We never left the property once we arrived and continued to find treasure after treasure both inside the cabin and outside. There are lots of fantastic places to sit and enjoy the awesome views, and we tried to use them all! Every expectation was exceeded! We definitely look forward to returning to this perfect place!!
I have been visiting and staying in rental places in Western NC for many years and the Kilkelly Cabin has no peer. The cabin is perfect and the views other worldly but the best part of the experience are the hosts. Joanie and Gary made sure our stay was more than we ever could have imagined. We celebrated my son's graduation from App St, my Mom's 80th birthday and Mother's Day all in one spectacular long weekend. It literally could not have been better. 5 stars are not nearly enough. Thanks Joanie and Gary. We'll be back
We have stayed in many 5star vrbo's that were very nice. The Kilkelly's mountain cabin scores a perfect 10!! Everywhere you look you are surrounded by God's beauty! The Kilkelly's have masterfully captured every view possible, from every seat and every window in the cabin you are 'in the mountains' Private & peacefull! Everything about the cabin is immaculate, the landscaping, the inside decorating & furnishings, you will be comfortable & cozy & blessed!!! No detail inside or out has been overlooked!
I will end with a quote from my husband when we first arrived at the cabin " why didn't we spend our whole vacation here!"
I know the cabin will continue to Bless all who enter and stay! We will return and we will stay longer!
The Kilkelly cabin was awesome! The view was prettier than the pics! We loved the watching all the birds that came to the birdfeeders. Everything about this cabin was perfect! Best cabin we have ever stayed in- we will be back!!
We could not have enjoyed ourselves any more. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer. On our drive home I even looked at their calendar in hopes to come back this summer. I was sad to see it was fully booked but completely understand why. I could not be more thankful that Joanie and Gary have built such an amazing property to share such an incredible view. Stop looking elsewhere and stay here. Or if it is booked stay at their condo on the same property.
Thank you Joanie and Gary for allowing us to enjoy the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains in such a cozy, welcoming home.
We just spent four wonderful nights at the cabin. Every convenience was thought of and provided for our stay. Now to the important part - the views are to die for! The quality was even better than represented in the pictures online! The landscaping was so perfect at every turn! We really enjoyed the birds right outside of the large picture window and the rabbits that came to visit in the yard. Great getaway for reading and hibertnating or great retreat for those TV sports fans! There was enough space for everyone to be able to retreat to their personal zones! Then once dinner time rolled around, we gathered in the great kitchen/dining area and cooked, laughted and caught up with everyone's lives. It doesn't get any better than this - thanks again for sharing the cabin, Joanie and Gary!
