My name is Jim Massey. I am a Civil Engineer, General Contractor, and Real Estate Broker, born in Winston-Salem. I came to Roaring Gap in 1965 where I met and married my wife, Nancy. She is a registered nurse with a specialty in surgery in Elkin and my partner in the real estate and construction business. WE ARE NEW TO THE RENTAL BUSINESS AND WILL NEGOITATE OUR RATES BASED ON NUMBER OF NIGHTS AND NUMBER OF PEOPLE STAYING. WE WILL ALSO TALK TO YOU ABOUT YOUR BRINGING A PET.

Jim Massey purchased this chalet in 1998

My company designed and built this house at about half its present size in 1966 for a couple from Winston-Salem. Years later we built them a bigger home two houses up the street, and sold this house to a couple from Florida. When it became available again in 1998, Nancy and I bought it because all the really good view lots had been built on and we had always dreamed of living on one of the spectacular view properties on Ridge Road. We gutted it down to the bare framing, doubled its size and built it all over again, finishing in 2000. We lived here for 10 years and then moved into a new home across the street in Olde Beau. Ultravista is presently for sale, but will not be shown when there is a guest in the house.

Having designed and built almost all the view homes on Ridge Road, Nancy and I knew that the view was good, but didn't know it was spectacular until we lived there. I didn't know that sunrises sometimes are as beautiful as the best sunset. Also, I had no idea that a full moon could be so brilliantly exciting. Watching lightning storms in the valley from up here is really special. So are fireworks in valley communities on July 4th. When the fog is lying in the valley, the mountain tops look like islands in a cotton sea. And every night when the lights come on down below, called 'valley stars' by locals, it looks like a large city. The view is different every day.

Great escape!

  • 5 of 5
The rental experience to this mountain chalet was wonderful! The house is beautiful, the mountain view is beyond beautiful and all the necessities were great! The owner was wonderful to work with, very attentive to making sure that everything was is order and especially helpful with the special accommodations needed for my Mother. We did have to travel a bit to get to the sites we wanted to see.....but the ride with the scenery is beautiful.
This chalet is a must stay! Great and friendly people in roaring Gap!

CGA Super Senior Tournament

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful, we could hardly believe our eyes when we first saw the home. Five golfers and wives stayed in this fantastic home. The views were spectacular and every bedroom had a senic view. The owner went out of his was to be certain that we had everything that we needed. We took advantage of the beautiful deck and enjoyed breakfast and the evening meal outdoors. The beds, linens and towels were the quality of any 5 star resort. I would recommend this home to anyone seeking a fantastic getaway.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the super complimentary review of our mountain retreat. We get quite a few golfers here (men and women), partly because Roaring Gap has three country clubs with scenic and challenging courses. One was designed by nenowned architect Donald Ross, and another by George Cobb, who built more than 100 courses, mainly in the southeastern states.
Some describe Roaring Gap as "Just a soft wedge from Heaven". We Look forward to having you and your wives back soon.

This house was a fabulous retreat for our yearly "girls" reunion. The views are spectacular and the house is large, spacious and very comfortable. We have been getting together for over 10 years on our trips, and this house, is our favorite. Jim is delightful, wonderful to work with, and available for any questions you may have. We definitely will be back!

Chalet stay was wonderful with an awesome view

  • 5 of 5
Jim greeted the first of our party, we all arrived at different times, and gave a complete tour of the home. Rooms were spotless, plenty of towels for use after showering in the amazing shower that was handicap friendly, had multiple heads and a built in seat, as well as a beautiful view of the mountains and the deer in the back yard. We were in town for my son's wedding so I had no time to use the jacuzzi but it looked very inviting. The size of the house permitted, aunts, uncles, parents, and grandma to all stay and and visit together while still having the ability to retreat to private rooms as needed. My brothers and the groom had a great time playing ping pong. The setting made for some wonderful pictures of the men getting dressed including one of them pretending to hold my son back from "taking the plunge " off the second story deck.

We all wished we'd have had more time to spend here.

Owner's Response: I know that your weekend on the mountain was a whirlwind of activity, and I appreciate the kind words about our house. Yours was the third of four weddings here this year. I thank you for letting the UltraVista crew be a small part of a very significant family event. My best to all of you.

The setting of Ultravista can't be beat. We loved the expansive accomodations (thanks for the twin beds addition) and that deck. the host, Jim Massey is always responsive and available if one has any challenges. The house was perfect for our group of 10 women and we loved our second stay there.
