Our beautiful creek side property was purchased for family enjoyment. We are greatful to be able to share it with our daughters, their husbands, and our 8 grandchildren and now, through the rental cabins, with others. Our goal is to keep it as natural as possible, providing a legacy of enjoying the out of doors for our family. If you need more space we have an adjacent cottage that sleeps 8.
Dayle Smith purchased this cabin in 2001
All we could think about when we saw it is 'what a beautiful, healthy, safe place to be a child'....just drive into the driveway and all the distractions of the world go away.
This property has given us a 'both/and' experience. We are away, in a quiet, natural setting, yet we are only 10 miles from the enchanting town of West Jefferson and 40 miles from Boone.
The benefits of being right on the creek are too numerous to mention! The sounds, the fishing, the kayaking/rafting, and just the watching of all the birds, deer, and other critters is more entertainment than we can almost take in!
I recently took my teenage son and two of his fishing buddies for a two-night stay and found this cabin and valley to be outstanding. We have fished Helton Creek many times but wanted a place to stay a few nights without making it just a day-trip. My son and his friends are avid fly-fishermen and were in the water nearly all day catching trout. Without a worry about the boy's safety, I was able to fish, relax, roam the property, cook, sit on the porch, sit by a great fire on the creek and soak in the beauty of this valley. Linda and Dale made us feel like family and we promised them they would be seeing a lot of us in the future. I felt like I was at home and the boys are still talking about the trip.
We really enjoyed our stay at this cabin on the creek. The atmosphere is very relaxing, private, and scenic. We were made to feel welcome and at home by the manager, Mr. Smith, when we arrived. The cabin is very well designed and decorated and had all that we needed, and then some. We explored the creek, sat in the rockers on the front porch in the mornings and evenings taking in the scenery, and had a great time fishing. We truly enjoyed our entire stay and would definitely recommend this location to anyone.
We just returned from a weekend get away to this amazing cabin! I always read reviews about vacation spots before choosing, but seldom write them myself, but after a relaxing weekend of peace and tranquility I had to do so. I have fished Helton Creek many times and love the area, so when I seen this cabin I couldn't wait to stay. My wife and I were joined by her sister and boyfriend, and each of us wished we had another week to enjoy this piece of heaven. The cabin is beautiful and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. The pictures don't do it justice, its even prettier in person, all you need to bring is food. As others have said the caretakers (Dayle and Linda) are so nice and will make sure you have great visit. You feel like your part of their family. We enjoyed grilling out and campfires by the creek, when we weren't just sitting on the porch listening to nothing but nature.
The fishing, Wow! Dayle had told me if I didn't catch at least 30 trout while I was there I needed to change flies. Well I didn't catch 30.....I lost count at 50!!! I have fished in many different areas of the country and this was as good as it gets for catching big trout,you will be spoiled after fishing here!
We are already planning our next stay later this year.
I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone who wants a quite relaxing get away yet close enough to town with many other activities.
Just returned from a 5 night stay and we are already looking forward to our next visit. We loved everything about the cabin and especially the warm welcome and hospitality of the caretakers, Dayle and Linda. They are very nice people and took care of anything we needed. The cabin is very clean, comfortable and well stocked with everything you'll need. We brought all of our food and only ate one meal out. We simply enjoyed relaxing at the cabin and taking in all of the natural beauty surrounding it. Nothing like grilling out and building a fire by the creek, fishing for trout (caught some nice ones!),and watching my little dog play along the bank. He had as much fun as we did!
The nearby town of West Jefferson is only a 15 minute ride and has plenty of shops/restaurants if you want to get out and sight-see. We had planned on visiting Grayson Highlands State Park but the cabin was so relaxing we never made it, maybe next time. Just can't say enough good things about our stay. We will definitely be going back!
I could not have asked for a more perfect setting for our family to spend quality time together. The property manager and his wife went above and beyond to ensure that we felt welcomed and that our stay was enjoyable. My husband and oldest son enjoyed the fishing while my younger son had a blast playing in the creek. The water was ideal - not too deep or swift for children to enjoy. The cabin was very clean and well-equipped. The setting was absolutely ideal. We are hoping to plan a return visit this year. Thank you so much for allowing us to share your little piece of Heaven.
The best thing that we can do to recommend this property is to say we have stayed twice in the last 2 months and have already booked 2 more trips before the end of summer!
The dogs were welcome, and we were able to take long walks on quiet country roads nearby, relax in chairs by the river and on the front porch, and cook yummy meals in the well stocked kitchen.
The cabin is spic and span clean, and all our needs were met when we walked in the door with extra special touches like a bouquet of wild flowers added by the most excellent caretakers- Dayle and Linda.
We look forward to coming back as many times as we can.
The cabin is located on one of North Carolina's primier trout streams and the owner routinely stocks the water in addition to the state stocking program. Located on a dead end with only three other cabins on the 6 plus acres this is an ideal seculded get away yet only 300 yards back to a paved state road. The property has open grass areas for games and biking riding on the local gravel roads with little traffic. An outdoor fireplace with wood provided is a great gathering place down by the creek. Local canoe outfitters can provide services for canoeing or tubing the New River. The historic town of West Jefferson is located just 10 minutes away with all the necessary services, grocery stores, restaurants and liquor store. For those who want a break from the pease and quiet the townes of Boone and Blowing Rock are 45 mintures away on good roads. These locations provide great outlet shopping, snow skiing, and dinning options. To the north one will find Grayson Highlands National Park with great hiking options and the Virginia Creeper Bike Trail, one of the highlights of the ares.
