Overview

Whitetop Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, loft, bunk room, 2 baths, Sleeps 12.

This luxury peg, post and beam timber-frame cabin sits on top of a ridge on 50 unspoiled acres. Quiet, secluded with spectacular mountain views all around. Explore the walking trails on the property that lead to the Top-O-The-Ridge where you can see the North Carolina side of the Blue Ridge off in the distance. Follow the less strenuous get-away trail which will lead you to an intimate view of the peaceful valley below while relaxing in an Adirondack chair or on the A-frame swing. Maybe just head down the ridge to Helton Creek, which borders the property, and enjoy the sounds of the bold stream or try your hand at fly fishing for some of the native or stocked trout. Or...just sit on the porch and enjoy the vistas or the horses that roam the property. You may never want to leave!

This beautiful home has 3 porches, each with spectacular views. Enjoy dinner or a warm fire outside on the back deck. Build a roaring bon-fire in the camp fire pit overlooking Grayson Highlands State Park. At night the stars are magnificent! Inside, sit on the large hearth of the nearly 30 foot stone fireplace and soak in the warmth and sounds of another crackling fire.

Indulge in the many activities close by. Lily Ridge is just 10 min. from the Virginia Creeper Trail and only 3 miles from Grayson Highlands State Park. Local attractions/activities include hiking, fishing, biking, horseback riding, music, and festivals throughout the year.

West Jefferson, NC is 25 min away where there are a variety of restaurants from BBQ to fine dining. Enjoy local art work, shops and antiquing. Nearby, enjoy the ambiance, a glass of wine and fine dining offered by the River House located on the North Fork of the New River. For family style with an atmosphere and history all it's own, check out Shatley Springs and don't forget to grab a bottle of fresh spring water, said to cure many an ailment. There are several golf courses located in West Jefferson and the New River is a beautiful place to canoe, tube or kayak.

In the other direction over the peak of Whitetop Mountain, is Abingdon, Virginia, a vibrant and quaint destination and home to the historic Barter Theater. Abingdon is a short 45 minute drive along the famed Crooked Road Music Trail. Explore the town, try the original Tavern which has been in continuous operation since the 1700's and visit the Abingdon Winery on the way there or on the way back to Lily Ridge.

Boone, NC is an hour from Whitetop as well as the quaint community of Blowing Rock. Shop, ski, rock climb or zip line. The choices in and around Lily Ridge Cabin are limitless.

We manage the property personally to make sure your stay is an enjoyable and memorable experience! We hope you will consider staying with us soon!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lily Ridge Cabin was absolutely perfect! My husband and I arrived after

a very long two day drive in the rain and wind from DC. (Skyline Drive

was beautiful but slow at 45 mph!) When we entered the cabin, we thought

we'd died and gone to heaven. The views from all the windows and the

decks were breathtaking, especially as the fall colors were just

reaching their peak. We especially enjoyed the large stone fire place in

the living room and the fire pit on the deck. Many evenings were spent,

relaxing with a glass of wine in front of a warm fire. Even though the

cabin is off the beaten track there was a lot to do in the area - hiking

in the Mt. Rogers National Recreation Area and Mt. Grayson State Park,

biking on the Virginia Creeper trail, discovering mountain music in the

lovely town of Floyd. I could go on and on, but I'll just say that we'd

go back in a heart beat. In fact, we're already planning our next

vacation to the Virginia Highlands and Lily Ridge.

perfect mountain retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Lily Ridge!! We stayed for a few days over Spring Break (4 adults, 5 kids) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything is exactly as described, the property is very clean and well-maintained, the bed in the 1st floor master is super comphy and Sheila was happy to share all kinds of information about things to do in the area. The kids had the best time exploring the property for hours (the view from the top of the mountain behind the house is amazing). Be sure to bring carrots or apples to feed the horses that roam the property. One day, we rented bikes for the scenic 17 mile ride down the mountain into Damascus along the VA Creeper Trail (Bonus - they shuttle you back UP the mountain to your car!) Thanks again for a great mini-vacation!!

Great home and great owners

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property in a great, off-the-beaten path location. The home is obviously well cared for and has a well-stocked pantry and plenty of games, books, local maps and information. We didn't turn on the TV once during our stay. The outdoor firepit was perfect for making smores. And the star gazing is amazing.

We skipped the VA Creeper Trail and stuck to Grayson which is a true gem. No crowds, not "touristy" at all and beautiful trails and views. Rather than going to Shakley Springs, we'd recommend Pie in the Sky in Lansing, NC. for dinner. Fabulous pizza and coffee.

As one previous reviewer said, the driveway should be navigated for the first time during daylight hours. We arrived after some heavy rains and it had some ruts (the owners warn you about this) but after driving it 2x, there were no issues. I would also bring a roll of paper towels and toliet paper - there were three of us and there wasn't enough at the cabin to get us through one day. Everything else was supplied, including fire starters, laundry and dish washing supplies. The local store / gas station makes a great chicken sandwhich and probably has anything else you might need.

Wonderful Vacation!

Be warned - you may not be able to use your cell phones during your stay so be sure to load up your GPS directions using the wireless provided at the the house.

Great Family Memories!

  • 5 of 5

We had a WONDERFUL stay over the Christmas week at Lily Ridge Cabin. We never left the cabin for the whole week. Our family hiked the property, played in the snow, swung on the high swing, strung popcorn for the Christmas tree we cut down, made Christmas ornaments, taught the kids to play chess and also made some beautiful family memories! The view was awesome, the owners were pleasant to work with and the cabin was cozy. We hope to come back next year with our new family member. THANKS!

Luxury in the wilderness

  • 5 of 5

Our time at the cabin was awesome!!!! We loved it to listen to the trees in the wind and to enjoy the spectaculous view from the deck at the mountains at daytime and at the milky way at night. Everything in the house was kept clean and in good shape. The home theater is gorgeous. The nearby Grayson State Park is really worth a visit for hiking, biking or even horse riding.

We will definitely recommend the cabin to our friends. Thank you, Sheila!!

Ww didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated Christmas in this beautiful cabin. My husband, three year old, one year old and golden retriever loved it. Not only is Lily Ridge stocked ( just bring your clothes and food) but the owners decorated it for Christmas for us! The views are breathtaking, we were amazed everyday by the beauty of the area. The pictures do not do Lily Ridge justice, it's the perfect getaway retreat, so modern and rustic at the same time. The owners obviously care very much for this home and it's reflected in its care and maintenance. I would highly recommend Lily Ridge and cannot wait to return.
