'WEST WING' VIEWS AT KILKELLYS: PANORAMIC AND UNPARALLED

Boone Condo Rental Photos and Description

A 2-story, 2-bedroom private condo, with SPECTACULAR MOUNTAIN VIEWS!

RELAX and REJUVENATE at Kilkellys WEST WING Condo! We are blessed to live in an unusually beautiful part of the Blue Ridge Mountains, perched high on a finger ridge with tall mountains and deep valleys surrounding. With safe, paved road year-around access, we are just off the Blue Ridge Parkway at the Bamboo Gap entrance, and only minutes from Boone and Blowing Rock. Yet we enjoy total privacy and unsurpassed panoramic views. There are no city lights, so the stars are magnificent. And with no nearby highways or traffic noise, we are able to enjoy the orchestral sounds of nature. As we are very grateful for being able to share this beauty with others, our goal is to provide a unique vacation destination, centered around the solitude, serenity, and majesty of the oldest mountain range on our continent.

You will be surrounded by gorgeous mountain views from our 22-acre ridge of gardens, woodland and fields. You will be welcomed with warmth and special amenities - and pampered by luxurious furnishings. About 3 years ago, we opened our WEST WING -- a totally private and independent, 2-bedroom/2-bath condo, privately attached to our Main House. It is sound-separated from the Main House by double exterior walls and doors. And it was designed at an angle from the Main House to ensure visual privacy. It is also out of sight or sound of our other vacation rental, the 'CABIN at Kilkelly's', which is further down our ridge. The WING is 1800 square feet, two stories, with a king bedroom suite on each floor. It has its own private drive, its own parking area, its own three entrances, its own front porch, rear patio, and corner-wrapped deck -- all with tables, swings, and comfortable seating. The Wing has a private Jacuzzi hot tub, a dedicated heating/AC system and satellite TV system; a private foyer, living room, kitchen, pantry, and billiard/game room. And best of all -- it has its own breathtaking, panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, valleys, sunrises, and sunsets.

We encourage you to check out our guest reviews, some of which have been submitted directly to VRBO and the remainder taken directly from our Guest Book (which are unedited and include ALL guest reviews and comments).

There are flowering trees, beautiful landscaping, and seasonal vegetable gardens. We have outdoor play areas and play equipment, a horse shoe pit, a fire pit, a 45-foot rope swing, and nearby streams. There is also a short but rigorous climb to our own small cave (of course, we'd have to make sure a little bear family hasn't checked in).

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! And we have another little gift from Mother Nature: We've NEVER HAD MOSQUITOES! All patios and decks are open to nature and pest free.

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 WELCOME YOU to the WEST WING!

Your Innkeepers,

Joanie and Gary Kilkelly

Enhancing and maintaining this unusually beautiful place is one of our greatest passions -- sharing it with others is another. Our ability to achieve our goal is best reflected by the REVIEWS of our guests. Guests' reviews are either submitted directly to VRBO or taken directly from our Guest Book, fully and accurately quoted, and include the reviews by ALL of our guests.

Joanie & Gary Kilkelly purchased this condo in 2011

In 2009 we built 'The Cabin at Kilkellys', further down our finger ridge, several hundred yards from the Main House and West Wing. Because of its popularity, in 2011 we decided to open our West Wing condo. Like the Cabin, the West Wing is private and upscale, and shares the same spectacular views. So with this addition, we are continuing our journey, meeting wonderful people along the way. And it remains our goal to provide the most unique, highest quality, and relaxing vacation destination in the Blue Ridge Mountains!

In addition to the panoramic views, the West Wing itself is a unique rental property. It is a fully furnished two-story condo with warm and upscale characteristics of a B&B. But because it offers so much more, we feel it's better categorized as a luxury condo that's attached to, but private from, our Main House. We ONLY rent the West Wing in its entirety, to one set of guests at a time. The guests or guest party simply decide if they need one or two master suites, and only pay for what they need.

ANNIVERSARY ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
West Wing at Kilkelly's far surpassed any expectations! The photos of the place enticed us, but could hardly compare to the spectacular beauty. Took our breath away!
The owners thought of every conceivable detail, making our stay superb in every way (without a doubt, the best pizza we have ever had--don't miss out on Joanie's homemade pizza)...only wish we could have stayed longer! We would recommend this in a heartbeat (already have), although I must confess that I do so reluctantly, because I don't want it to be too difficult to make our next reservation!

AN AMAZING TRIP!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous time and enjoyed every moment. Gary and Joanie are so kind and have thought of everything which is apparent in even the smallest details. They are perfect hosts and the property is breathtaking. Joanie makes AMAZING pizzas and even made our sons birthday cake! It was beautiful and delicious! Our boys (ages 5 and 8) enjoyed the property just as much as we did! It was fun for everyone. Thank you for such a wonderful visit! We would love to return to your paradise!

THE WEST WING

  • 5 of 5
This place is beautiful! The scenery, the landscaping, and the accommodations. We really enjoyed this relaxing vacation. We traveled some of the Blue Ridge Parkway and did a few short hikes and took in all the awesome scenery. I loved watching the different variety of birds that the bird feeders attracted at the West Wing. Gary and Joanie are very nice. The bed was so comfy! Everything was perfect. We hope to return to this wonderful place in the near future.

WONDERFUL, RELAXING WEEK IN A BEAUTIFUL CONDO LOCATED IN A PERFECT SETTING.

  • 5 of 5
First, the listing description and photos are accurate but don't give you the same feeling that you have when you see it firsthand. The photos are nice, but the actual location is breathtaking. The property was perfectly maintained, but, if one ever had a problem, I feel sure that Joanie and Gary would take care of the problem without delay. The owners are very helpful in making sure that you're settled and know where things are and how to operate things like the televisions. (They're constantly adding to the printed material to make sure that they don't leave something out.) It was so convenient to have a great pizza waiting on us the first night so we didn't have to even think about deciding where to go eat. The breakfast casserole is also wonderful and a big help to have waiting on you. I would absolutely recommend this property to family, friends, and anyone interested in a great place to stay in the mountains. The views from inside the condo and on the decks have to be seen to be believed. The bird feeders attracted varieties of birds that we hadn't seen in ages. Boone and Blowing Rock (as well as other places to visit) are amazingly convenient. The Parkway is close and enjoyable. There are overlooks and hiking routes nearby, but there are also great walks right at the property. They supply a list of recommended restaurants, so using that and your wireless connection at the condo, you can choose anything from burgers, to vegetarian, to very up-scale places. We just cannot say enough good things about the owners, the property, and the location. We loved it all, especially the relaxation it provided.
