Experience the authenticity of Mammaw and Pappaw Darnell’s home place ½ miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway and across the street from the Raccoon Holler Campground lake. The beautiful lake is right in front of the home place. Used to about 5 years ago, there was no water or bathroom in this cabin.

You will really enjoy your time here – two bedrooms (i.e., three full beds as two are upstairs in one room), full bathtub, separate shower, washer dryer, dishwasher microwave, hardwood floors, natural beams etched with pine hardwood to provide the rustic cabin feel yet with the modern day appliances of comfort including flat screen cable television.

This property also has RV hookup. If you have RV, you can connect it all here

Sit on the front porch and look at the lake, view the lake from the kitchen, living room and upstairs bedroom. This home place offers authenticity and comfort.

Why Denver Severt chose Jefferson

This property is far from the madding crowd, and an exquisite getaway in any season. Very accessible in all seasons with state maintained roads. It is close to the parkway, minutes away from all the attractions. FREE WIFI But why did I buy the property. Well I tell all my students about this in my Service Management Courses at the University of Central Florida Rosen College where I am a professor. I grew up a mile away and my Pappaw and Mammaw Darnell lived here and when I came to visit, though they had no water and no bathroom and an outhouse, they gave me a beyond a Ritz Carlton Experience, a Raccoon Holler Experience. I know the love is still in the walls. Completely made 'sexy' and remodeled in the modern day form with great rooms and amenities, the cabin has the same likeness as it did when I stay all those weekend with my grandparents. At noon, they argued over who woke me up - Pappaw got the chamber pot ready so I did not have to go to the outhouse - the smell of Pine cleaner emanated from that pot - they kept everything immaculate. After the morning bathroom visit, Mammaw had breakfast on the table. The two of them loved me and never said a negative word to me - to be welcome by them was to never forget it. I hope you have such a time there.

Not to mention, my amazing Mother, Wanda, the caretaker was raised here and has her own stories to tell from the Holler.

Come join the Raccoon Holler family and stay. It will capture your heart and soul and make you feel rejuvenated head to toe.

Could not have been more perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the cabin as a Christmas gift for my college son, who asked for 'the gift of time'. The cabin could not have been more perfect for a weekend of peace and reconnecting to the most important commodity in life...time. Far more well appointed than expected, much more spacious than the beautiful photos show online. The setting is peaceful, across from a lake in the mountains. The cabin is located in an area where 4 wheel drive is not necessary to access. The owner, Des, was immediate in responses with information and very helpful and professional through the rental process. Everything was perfect. I plan to rent the cabin a couple times a year for my son as a way to exhale and reset. Thank you Des! Truly...thank you for a perfect gift.

Wonderful week of relaxation in cozy cabin... :-)

  • 4 of 5

The Raccoon Holler cabin was a very cozy and relaxing retreat! My husband and I enjoyed our stay there very much. The cabin was clean and furnished with "home-y" extras (family photos, throws for curling up on the couch, games, etc.). We enjoyed sitting on the front porch, watching the ducks in the pond across the road. We had a good meal at Mountain Aire Seafood and Steaks down the road as well as at Smoky Mountain Barbecue a few miles away in West Jefferson. We recommend visiting the Churches of the Frescoes (West Jefferson and Glendale Springs), the Ashe County Cheese Factory and Store (West Jefferson), and Cascade Falls/E. B. Jeffress Park (mile marker 272 off Blue Ridge Parkway). There are lots of other attractions and things to do in the area. Just see Kathleen in the Visitors Center in downtown West Jefferson. She was very helpful! :-)

Great cabin and great owner to work with!!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location to reach all the nice things to do in the area while staying in a peaceful relaxing location. West Jefferson is a great place with lots of interesting stuff to do. Virginia Creeper Trail was a little over an hour away, Grandfather Mountain, Blowing Rock and Boone all within an hour or so drive.

Denver is very easy to work with and very helpful with information. His Mom is the caretaker and came by to check on us when some heavy rain predicted possible flash floods (which never turned out to be a problem despite some very heavy rain).

Cabin was clean. It has a rustic feel but all the appliances were new and worked fine. Had a minor WiFi connection issue, but recycling the router fixed it and I let the owner know about that.

I would definitely recommend this place (and already have) for a relaxing getaway.

Great Time as Always

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this cabin and it was as great a trip as the first time. The cabin offers all that we need and Denver and his Mom make the process very easy. The cabin is in beautiful shape and is very comfortable. We look forward to staying here again.

Great little cabin right off the Blue Ridge Parkway

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed this little vacation spot. The house was clean and the porch had a really nice view of lake / pond right across the road from it. The kitchen was fully stocked and the gas fireplace was a nice touch. Internet worked and has satellite TV. On the way there from Gastonia, I enjoyed the time spent at the outlet stores in Blowing Rock.. picked up some nice little kitchen gadgets. Had dinner at the local steakhouse and was a really nice place to not only to travel to, but to stay at as well. Also hiked Mt. Jefferson, fun.
