Let the enchantment of the mountains overwhelm you any time of year! Whether you want a romantic get-a-way, or have your ski boots in hand to head for the slopes, Rustic Retreat is calling your name. Rustic Retreat has offerings for all, as close as 20 minutes away: Tweetsie Railroad, Blowing Rock, Grandfather Mountain, Banner Elk are just a few.

About Mark Spicer

My wife and I live I the Chapel Hill/Durham area with our three young children. We both grew up visiting the NC Mountains for vacations and fell in love with idea of having a place of our own! The West Jefferson area provides rest and relaxation along with many places to visit. The quaint downtown offers all you could imagine in a small town; including a cheese factory. The Boone/Blowing Rock area is just a short 30 minute drive. Our family enjoys visits to Mast General Store, mining for gems, picnicking on the Parkway and tubing the New River. The river also provides kayaking, fishing and rafting.

Mark Spicer purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Mark Spicer chose North Carolina

West Jefferson is only 2 1/2 hours from our home in Hillsborough, so it's perfect for a weekend getaway!

What makes this cabin unique

The small town of West Jefferson, with it's quaint storefronts and friendly people, make this country town a great place to relax!

Rustric Retreat did not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at your beautiful Rustic Retreat. The cabin was spacious, warm and inviting with lots of room for both couples (and more), and the privacy of the surrounding woods with the beautiful trees was the icing on the cake. Leaves were absolutely beautiful from both front and back porch areas. Great place to relax!

Great house and location.

House was beautiful, clean, setting peaceful, location great. Close enough to Grandfather Mountain, which I highly recommend. I would come back again.

Wonderful Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted a weekend getaway to a nice mountain cabin in Ashe county. We love to go into West Jefferson and see all of the shops, and farmers market. The cabin home was very relaxing, warm, and cozy. Just the perfect place! It was very roomy, nice furniture, all of the kitchen equipment we needed, and a nice porch that goes all the way around.

Just What We Needed!

  • 5 of 5

We decided on short notice that we needed to get away for the weekend and the owner was very quick to respond. He was very helpful, polite, and readily accessible. The home is in a fantastic location close to everything you need, yet far enough away to be able to revel in the fact that you're in the mountains. It was very well kept, well stocked, and was the perfect getaway for us. We could easily have fit two families in the space and not felt cramped. The kitchen is huge and I'm sure could accommodate any family. We would definitely stay here again!

Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very roomy and comfortable. The location is great, remote enough to give privacy but only minutes to West Jefferson. We vacation in the mountains frequently and this area is one of the best there is. The owner was very helpful and responsive throughout the process. We will keep this on on our list for a return visit.
