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 of the Eastern Continental Divide. 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 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 luxurious and totally private and independent, 2-bedroom/2-bath condo. 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 'WEST 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, three private 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.
20 of the 24 photos included here were taken directly from the 'West Wing' condo. The other 4 photos are from the adjoining fire pit, playground area, and the property entrance.
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.
It's 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.
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!

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.
What a wonderful place! Beautiful views, all the comforts of home! Can't wait to come back. Thank you for helping my sister's wedding....fabulous!
We had the best time! Great mountain views and the property was pristine. Our accommodations were comfortable and the owners were gracious. Our 12 and 13 year olds loved the plate of brownies put out for "us" upon our arrival. We enjoyed exploring the property in the late afternoon after spending our days in Boone and Blowing Rock. We will definitely go back!
We have a group of 4 people and all of us love this place! We are here for a relaxing spring break weekend. Tons of great movie collection u will definitely love them. I personally love the small town and will be back with my parents again! Thank you so much, I recommend this place to all of u that considering if you wanna stay, you will love it!
We spent 3 days and 2 nights at Kilkellys and had a dream of a weekend. The location and amenities were exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a weekend away from home, relaxing and a getaway. Kilkellys was tucked away in the mountains of the Blue Ridge but still close enough to have a day trip to beautiful Blowing Rock and Boone. The large windows over looking the mountains, spa style bathrooms, hot tub and super plush bedroom suite made us want to stay for a lifetime. Thank you to our amazing hosts and sweet Annie (their dog) for a great weekend.
The other reviews are spot on. This place is AMAZING! I came here to celebrate a birthday and couldn't have asked for more. Our schedule for arriving got a little out of whack & the owners were so understanding and accomodating, as we had Joanie's homemade pizza when we arrived. The property is gorgeous. When other reviews mention they have thought of every little detail, they aren't kidding. The pool table alone was worth the price of the rental! We also played darts and soaked in the hot tub all weekend. There is a great soundsystem that you can listen to while enjoying the game room. Absolutely everything is TOP OF THE LINE. And i haven't even mentioned the view, which is breathtaking! We can't wait to come back :)
The previous 5 reviews of West Wing sounded too good to be accurate, but they really are right on target. Both the facility and the hosts Joanie and Gary exceed expectations. Since about every other compliment has been said, what can we add except that we especially appreciated the pillowtop king mattress for our elderly backs. The West Wing was outstanding in every way. I mean 2 refrigerators, shower with 2 shower heads, both Keurig and Cuisinart coffemakers, DVR for programs you don't want to miss, binoculars for the views, excellent directions on how to get there, and more. We will return for sure!
This is not a destination, it is an experience. The owners have done everything possible to make the guests feel at home. The West Wing is well thought out in its layout and amenities. If you want a truly great time away in beautiful settings and close to Boone and Blowing Rock, this is your place.
At the top of our Blue Ridge Mountain ridge, the West Wing condo at Kilkellys has FULL PANORAMIC VIEWS of mountain sunrises and sunsets!! It's a perfect place to experience dramatic and beautiful weather changes and cloud formations -- and stars at night. (we furnish binoculars)!

It alone offers the most scenic and dramatic views of the mountains of western NC, as well as numerous hiking trails, horseback riding, biking river rafting, river/lake canoeing and fishing, picnicking, cascades, waterfalls, and dramatic rock outcrops.
