West Jefferson House Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse charm, modern amenities. Cozy enough for 2, large enough for 6.

Looking for a peaceful getaway tucked in the Blue Ridge Mountains? The Parkway Farmhouse is the perfect place for you! The Farmhouse is a new home located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Ashe and Wilkes Counties, North Carolina, less than a mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Mountains-to-Sea Trail and minutes from the towns of Glendale Springs and West Jefferson, and 30 minutes from N. Wilkesboro, Boone and Blowing Rock. Cozy enough for two, but large enough to sleep 6, this home has 3 bedrooms (2 queens, and 2 twins) and 2.5 baths.

The Parkway Farmhouse has the charm of a mountain farmhouse with modern amenities. Built with quality craftsmanship and attention to detail, the Farmhouse has a sweeping front porch, stunning hardwood floors, 10' ceilings, ceiling fans, stacked stone gas fireplace, custom wainscoting, vaulted foyer and accent lighting. Beautifully furnished and decorated with many touches from local artists including paintings, pottery, lamps and soaps.

The Farmhouse features a fully stocked kitchen with cherry cabinets and granite countertops. The first floor master and master bath has custom tile, granite counters and a Jacuzzi tub. The private, wooded lot is landscaped and has an outdoor fire pit and grill.

Walk out the front door and hike to stunning waterfalls or mountain vistas. Take the Parkway to breakfast or lunch in Glendale Springs and visit the Church of the Frescoes. Dine at the River House or the quaint mountain town of West Jefferson. Float down the 'New', fish for trout, bike the Virginia Creeper Trail, or just sit on the front porch and watch the deer cross the yard and the birds on the feeder. Whatever your definition of a good time, you'll find it at the Parkway Farmhouse.

There's always something happening in the high country and the Farmhouse is ideally located to enjoy a vacation year round. In the Summer float the New River or bike the Virginia Creeper Trail. In the Fall, pumpkins patches, corn mazes and apple picking provide plenty of family fun! Thanksgiving brings the opening of the Ashe County Choose & Cut Tree Farms with hay rides, hot chocolate and more fun for the family!

The Farmhouse is surrounded by parks including Mount Jefferson State Park, New River State Park, Doughton Park, Stone Mountain State Park, Grayson Highlands State Park, to name a few. Whether you enjoy riding horses, bicycling, hiking, canoeing, fishing, shopping, dining or just plain relaxing, consider the Parkway Farmhouse for your next getaway.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a very relaxing time at the Parkway Farmhouse! You definitely keep your house clean and welcoming, thank you so much! We truly felt comfortable and rested. We all loved the house. Thank you for creating a place where it's clean, comfortable and truly home away from home! Fortunately, the weather was beautiful while we were there, but you provided enough "rainy day" activities in the house I wasn't worried :) If we come near Jefferson, we will definitely stay at your house! Also, thank you very much for being helpful and hospitable, truly made our trip easy!

Originally from California, made a career move to North Carolina over 15 years ago and immediately fell in love with this beautiful State and it's people. I work in the legal technology industry and my husband is an aerial photographer. Though we live in the city, we are lucky to have enough room for four rescue dogs, a cat and organic garden. We enjoy our city life but escape often to the mountains to unwind and relax.

Ellen Kinsinger purchased this house in 2008

We decided to buy our mountain farmhouse because with our busy schedules and the dogs, we didn't get to travel as much as we liked. We decided to buy something we could easily get to and escape our everyday lives. We had vacationed often in and around West Jefferson and were already in enamored with the area. We fell in love with the 'farmhouse' the moment we stepped foot on the long front porch and were embraced by the cool breezes and peace and quiet of the mountains.

The Parkway Farmhouse has the charm of a mountain farmhouse with modern amenities. A sweeping front porch, cathedral entry, 9 foot ceilings, stacked rock gas fireplace and hardwood floors. The Farmhouse is a beautifully furnished and decorated home with many touches from local artists including art, pottery, lamps and soaps. The Farmhouse is located less than a mile off the breathtaking Blue Ridge Parkway. Walk out the front door and hike to stunning waterfalls or mountain vistas. Take the Parkway to breakfast or lunch in Glendale Springs or the Historic Lodge in Doughton State Park. Dine at the River House or the quaint mountain town of West Jefferson. Float down the 'New', fish for trout, bike the Virginia Creeper Trail, or just sit on the front porch and watch the deer cross the yard and the birds on the feeder. Whatever your definition of a good time, you'll find it at the Parkway Farmhouse.

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 4 nights in the Parkway Farmhouse, wish we could have stayed longer. The home itself is very secluded and yet it is right off the Park way which makes it very easy to get north and south. It has everything you need, from the awesome front porch with rockers, to the fully stocked kitchen, to the whirpool tub and master bath. The home is very comfortable and the whole house is very homey, it was perfect for my wife and I, and our 2 daughters. We spent a night in Blowing Rock which is close, an afternoon in West Jefferson which is even closer, both are little mountain towns with alot of charm. We went on a coulple of good hikes in the area, and loved walking the roads and trail up behind the house. The house was super clean, and dealing with the owners was a breeze. My wife and I are already talking about going back, except next time we will be staying longer, that's for sure.

Thank you so much for a wonderful time spent in your Beautiful home in the Beautiful NC Mountains

BEYOND EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
Everything about the parkway farmhouse exceeds expectations - location, furnishings, comfort, cleanliness, amenities, etc, etc. Ellen is the nicest, most accommodating owner we've encountered in all of our rental experiences. She and her property are 5 star. Stay here. You will love it.

PEACEFUL AND RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
The Parkway Farmhouse– is exactly as described. A clean, cozy, comfortable cabin that is stunningly beautiful inside and out. There is a certain Feng Shui about the house that leaves you calm and relaxed.

Inside- We adored the layout of the house. The décor and furnishing are warm, welcoming and visually harmonious. Beautiful pieces of the local artwork and pottery throughout the house. The kitchen has an abundance of staples for cooking. Movies and books galore for those who encounter rainy days or nights.

Outside- is private and tranquil. Loved, loved, loved the front porch….a great place for, morning yoga/meditation, just to sit and read or chat with friends/family. A sweet little nesting bird (which we named Tweetsie) was a frequent visitor as we sat on the porch each morning and night. We hiked/walked two trails- the falls (appx 25 min one way) and The Upper Road (appx 30 mins loop). The hiking sticks came in handy as we trekked along the trails. On our hikes we saw white tail deer, an egg- which looked to be a wild turkey egg and for the garden geeks –Lady’s Slipper Orchids which are a rare find.

Out and About- The town of West Jefferson is so cute (http://visitwestjefferson.org/ ) w/plenty of shopping and restaurants. Bee sure to stop into The Honey Hole (http://www.the-honey-hole.com/Home.aspx ) for a tasting or in Ashe County Cheese (http://ashecountycheese.com/default.php ) to pick up wine/cheese for relaxing and star gazing from the front porch. For us it was an easy 30 minute commute to Boone for an ASU Graduation. We visited Todd NC http://www.toddgeneralstore.com/ on our way back from Boone where we found a few garden treasures for our yards. There is so much to see and do in the area. We wish we had time to do more touring and exploring.

We did not want to leave the Parkway Farm House. This is a home I would recommend to anyone wanting to 'get away from it all' without being too far away from 'it all'.
Be warned a weekend is not long enough! Stay a full week! I can't wait for the opportunity to be able to stay here again!

****************Co-Renter Comments-
Loved every minute we spent there! Very clean and cozy and nicely decorated. Love the front porch and the privacy around the whole place.
Enjoyed our hikes around the area too. Can’t wait to come back and rent for a week or maybe a month sometime.

AWESOME!!!

  • 5 of 5
This is beautiful home just off the Blue Ridge and was a great get away for some hiking and sightseeing. It is beautifully decorated, comfortable and cozy. This kitchen is well stocked. We would definitely plan to stay again when in the area. We've stayed at many vacation rental properties and this is definitely one of the best!

A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, my two brothers plus our doggies absolutely loved this place...what not to love! If you want peace and quiet, and a beautiful home to enjoy then this is the place for you and your family. The farmhouse has everything you need to make you feel right at home. The kitchen is stocked with everything you will need, plus a grill and a fireplit to roast hotdogs, etc. The porch and rocking chairs, who doesn't love that. We took the dogs for their daily walk to the waterfalls or just walking along the roads enjoying the views. We went to West Jefferson, where we ate at Boondocks (our 2nd time) plus browsing around in the quaint little shops. Ate at Black Jacks too! If we had more time, would have gone to Blowing Rock and Boone down the road. The only thing I could wish for was more time, it went by so quickly. My family and doggies will definitely stay here in the future! Thank you Ellen and Bill, we had the best time.

THIRD TIME IS ALWAYS THE CHARM!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 3rd visit at the Parkway Farmhouse It's just like home and would never stay anywhere else. Ellen and Bill are always wonderful to work with. You can just relax on the property, take a walk around the whole neighborhood, the waterfall and enjoy the wooded scenery, or take a ride into West Jefferson to the Ashe County Cheese Factory, the Farmers Market and many other things to do in the area. Looking forward to our next stay in the Parkway Farmhouse!
