Escape to the mountains and stay with us at Incommunicado! This amazing cabin is new to our program in July 2012.
Now, a few of you may wonder what "Incommunicado" means. Well it is an Spanish adjective meaning: "Not wanting or not able to communicate with other people". Of course you are not totally isolated here. We do offer wireless internet and there is a home phone for you to receive calls and to make local calls. BUT you can escape all of the real world here!
You will just LOVE staying here. Located about 15-20 minutes from Jefferson, NC so you're close enough to enjoy everything in the High Country! You have amazing views of our locally famous Three Top Mountain which has an elevation of 5,020 ft. Three Top Mountain is one of the more impressive mountains in the NC High Country, located in the northwest corner of North Carolina.
Inside you will find this beautiful cabin decorated in beautiful log cabin style. The kitchen is fully stocked with most everything you need to prepare your favorite meal. The dining table is hand crafted and enough seating for up to 8. There are more seating room at the island bar.
There are 2 bedrooms on the main floor, one of which is a king size bedroom and there is a queen size bed in the other plus there is a full bathroom with tub/shower combo. The living room offers a nice and cozy wood burning stove for those cold winter days.
There are 2 more bedrooms on the lower level. One bedroom offers a queen size bed and the other bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds for the kids. There is also a wood burning stove and satellite TV on the lower level as well. The kids will enjoy the Game Cube with kid and family friendly games on those rainy days.
After a day of hiking, canoeing, shopping, or horseback riding, slip into the 6 person hot tub and relax. Let the soothing jets transport you to tranquility and listen to the sounds of the built in waterfall! The views from this cabin are incredible!!
Incommunicado is the perfect way to spend quality time with the family. For the outdoor lovers, enjoy the nearby state parks, canoeing such as Riverside Canoe & Tube Rentals and Zaloo's Canoes, or hiking at one of the many trails in Ashe County. If you like horseback riding Burnt Hill Stables is a great place to take the entire family! For more information about the area visit Ashe County Chamber.
At Incommunicado, we believe that nobody should be left behind. We will allow you to bring your four-legged family member, under 40 pounds, with you for a onetime nonrefundable pet fee of $50 per pet. Isn't it wonderful that for once you won't have to wonder how your best friend is doing in the kennel "back home?"
There is a 2 night minimum for off peak seasons and a 3 night minimum for holidays and the entire month of October. 4 night minimum for the Thanksgiving holiday and a 7 night minimum for the July 4th and Christmas/New Year holidays.
Check in time is 4:00 pm or after and check out time is 11:00 am.
NO SMOKING is allowed inside our cabins!
As you plan your trip to the mountains, please remember we do get rain, snow and some foggy days and occasional inconveniences which are out of our control. Winter weather in the Blue Ridge Mountains can occur from November through April. The majority of our homes are accessed by mountain roads, which will be icy in winter weather. For the safety of you and your party, please be prepared to drive in snow and ice. This means 4-wheel drive, good tires, and chains. It is your responsibility to be prepared for hazardous road conditions. There will be NO refunds, allowances, or date changes resulting from your negligence in this matter.
This was a first vacation together for our 3 families. We had 6 adults and 5 kids under 10. The cabin had plenty of space and tons of activities to keep everyone busy. The cabin itself is beautiful and clean, well stocked kitchen and all essentials. The wrap-around porch has beautiful views, even in March when everything is bare. We enjoyed many beautiful mornings in the rocking chairs.
Everyone enjoyed the hot tub, especially in low 30s high 40s temps. The cabin has tons of family-friendly movies and board games. Kept everyone entertained on rainy days.
The property is not large or maybe it is but there's no flat areas. So no walking or hiking. The kids climbed a steep hill behind the cabin a couple of times. There's no space outside for kids to play or throw a ball by the house. That was disappointing. We had 3 SUVs which took up most of the driveway and because of the rain the little space left was very muddy.
The cabin is in a remote location. Downtown West Jefferson is beautiful although we did not get to visit it much. Ashe County Cheese store is great and sell delicious cheeses. There's also a brewery for beer lovers and tons of small shops. The drive from the cabin is about 15 minutes.
To get to any type of big entertainment took over an hour. A drive to Sugar Mountain took 1hr 20 min. We made this trip 3 times. It was worth it since we got to snowtube, ski and trout fish. However, the long drives did not sit well with the little kids.
Driving on mountain roads after dark was pretty scary. If you go, choose the route through Boone. It's a bit longer but much safer. Tip: if you lose cell signal - and you will - DO NOT turn off your GPS. It will still work and get you wherever you're going.
There's no cell signal once you drive into West Jefferson. We had T-Mobile and ATT. The cabin Wi-Fi works great so get an app like Viber so you can call via internet (whoever you're calling needs to have the same app, so plan ahead). There's a phone in the cabin. But during a short power outage, the phone was out too. Just be prepared.
Don't get me wrong. We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was our fault for not planning well for entertainment. And for people looking to spend days in a rocking chair (which I would love to do), this cabin is perfect.
Stacey was very helpful in answering questions and planning our trip. Thank you!
This cabin is located about 15 minutes outside of West Jefferson, NC. Close to hiking, rafting, fishing, restaurants, Boone, Church of the Fresco's, Mt. Jefferson State Park, New River State Park, New River, and so much more. Enjoy the beauty and fresh air our mountains have to offer.
