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.

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.

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!

Spring weather in February!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Parkway Farmhouse and enjoyed Spring-like weather in February! The home was well appointed and nicely decorated. Loved the gas log fireplace. We like the fact that it is located right off the Blueridge Parkway which made it easy to find and close to all of our favorite digs. Very private. Thanks Ellen!

We spent our Christmas holiday at the Parkway Farmhouse and could not have been more delighted with the house and surrounding area. The kitchen was stocked with all of the supplies to prepare a large Christmas dinner. After a lovely walk on Christmas Eve, we sat be the fire watching snow fall outside. An impressive collection of books and movies kept all ages in our family entertained. The home is dog friendly, but you would not know it from the level of cleanliness...honestly. We would highly recommend the Parkway Farmhouse and plan to return in the Spring. We have stayed at other places in the area and this was our clear favorite because of it's privacy, level of decorating/amenities and helpful owners. Cheers!

Thanksgiving Perfection: Charm, Quaint, Homey!

I could go on and on with the positive adjectives to describe this home away from home mountain rental. This is my third time staying at this property and it gets better and better every time as we learn the area and the home. Pack some clothes and sme food and you are good to go. This place literally has everything you would have at your own home. My family decided to start a new tradition a couple of years ago and get away at Thanksgiving. Mom still cooked the regular Thanksgiving meal and was twirling around the kitchen like she was right at home. EVERYTHING she needed was right there. The home is beautifully appointed with high end furnishings that are as nice or nicer than what you probably have at home. All the amenities you need from DirecTV to iphone chargers to kids games and movies is right there. We were lucky to see snow on this trip and it was so beautiful to be able to watch it fall from the many windows in the open floor plan while sitting next to the gas fire place. We roasted marshmallows on the Cruel Moutain Marshmallow Stick out at the fire pit, we hiked the many trails around the home (even braving the tow rope that you can use to ascend the side of the hill near the home). The home is nestled on Cruel Moutain right off the Blue Ridge Parkway making it very convenient for us to make day trips to West Jefferson, Boone and Blowing Rock. Want a care free, low stress, relaxing place to stay? This is a perfect place for the adventurer or the person that just wants to get away for some quiet time to read a book (there are many to choose from) or listen to some music (there is an extensive very well organized music selection) or spend time playing games around the large dining room table! I will definitely be back to this property. It's become a home away from home for me and a place that I am very comfortable. I'd give it ten stars if I could.

We had 4 fun days at the Farmhouse. This home is very inviting and located near the State Parks that we enjoyed hiking. Our dogs looked forward each morning to their walk down to the water fall and beyond. We definitely will return for another relaxing vacation.
