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.

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.
Todd and Sheila Lange have been married for over 25 years, reside in Statesville, North Carolina and have three children, a 25 year old girl, a 22 year old boy and a 15 year old boy. We have enjoyed many happy moments in and around Lily Ridge Cabin and love sharing it with friends, family and guests.
