About Roger Jenkins

Retired Professor and Dean

Roger Jenkins purchased this chateau / country house in 1990

Why Roger Jenkins chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

I was born in this small rural community and have been privileged to travel around the world with my work. I have found no place in the world I think is overall more enjoyable and impressive than the mountains, streams, and quiet natural beauty of this community.

Because Penland School has, over the years, spawned so many artists who have relocated to this area, there are literally hundreds of artists located within an hour of the property.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

With the most impressive mountain views from the front porch while sitting in a red rocking chair, you find yourself wrapped in natural beauty on this private, gated, 27 acre farm. Not many places provide the unique opportunity to walk from your bed to a beautiful trout stream on property and land a 18 inch brown trout within minutes, then, In season, you walk a few hundred hards and enjoy blueberries, rasberries, and blackberries.

Peaceful Respite - The Sweetness of Simplicity

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay af the Red Roof Farmhouse. Our 7 year old daughter and 8 year old nephew enjoyed playing in the creek/stream that runs through the property. My retired parents enjoyed hours sitting on the front porch soaking in God's creation. The mountains, hummingbirds, cows grazing across the street - all the the wonder abounds when you stop and look. We took funyaks 7 miles down the Toe River with our 7/8 year olds and they loved every minute. We used the Loafers Glory company in Bakersville. Very fun! The kids spent two nights chasing and catching lightening bugs on the property. What glory! There aren't many stores or restaurants close by and we had zero cell reception but this added to our love of this place. The Owner(s) are very responsive and gracious. Coming from a pseudo-germaphobe, the house was very clean! Ahhhh....Our hike to the bluff on Roan Mountain was worth it......Very grateful! Thank you to the Jenkins family for our stay!

Owner's Response: This very special family has enjoyed the Red Roof Farmhouse Estate two long weekends in less than 5 weeks, and are making plans to rent it again for Thanksgi king along with my other Cottage at Toobie Hole Falls for entire family get together. ATT cell does not pick up here. Verizon does. The home has a land line for use and high speed wi-fi. A joy to host these folks and look forward to their return.

Beautiful Property! Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the Red Roof Farmhouse and everything was perfect once again. The owner and his family were very helpful and a pleasure to talk with. We mostly relaxed around the house and enjoyed the pleasant weather and views out on the front porch, especially in the evenings. We fished a good bit in Big Rock Creek flowing through the property and caught several rainbow trout and just enjoyed the cool flowing water. On this visit we also ventured up to the top of Roan Mountain and enjoyed the walking trails and gardens up there. And, as always, we made a few trips down to the Mountain Grill and enjoyed a variety of meals and treats including hamburgers, Philly cheese steak sandwiches, salads, chicken fingers, fried pickles, and milkshakes. This has become a favorite destination of our family and we will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: LOVE this precious family, and look forward to their return. It's folks like this who make me continue to make sure the Red Roof Farm Estate is always at it's best. Happy they got to go to the Roan Mountain (about 30 min away) to hike. My favorite place! The hike along the top of the Roan Balds (on the Appalachian Trail) is ranked by hikers as the most beautiful part of the AT. The Mountain Grill is such a treasure - and only a few hundred yards away! Hard to find a better hamburger or milkshake anywhere! When my children come to visit, they always stop there first.

What a great house! We spent a long weekend here with our three year old son and 11 month old daughter.

We can't say enough positive things about the home and the property. The property was a paradise for our three year old and he had a blast exploring, fishing, watching the cows and playing at the playground across the street. Our 11 month old loved walking and crawling on the beautiful lawn and also seemed to really enjoy the view.

Sunday was both my birthday (Dad) and also Father's Day and I was able to celebrate by watching our son catching his first fish. Fishing on the stream was great and I was pleasantly surprised at how productive it was in terms of fish. I landed some beautiful rainbow and brown trout and had a few stretches where it felt I was getting a strike on every cast.

The house was immaculately clean (we've traveled to 35+ countries and rented numerous homes and this was as clean as anywhere we've ever visited. My wife and I both remarked about it as soon as we walked in). It's clear the owner pays attention to the details that make a rental property stand out and there were plenty of kitchen supplies, towels, etc.

The home is fairly remote (buy your groceries before you get there) but having the Mountain Grill a few hundred yards away was really nice. During our trip we "sampled" their cheesesteaks, hamburgers, taco salad, pizza, onion rings, fries, and milkshakes and everything was excellent.

One piece of advice for renters is to call and coordinate arrival time with the property contact. I sent an e-mail (instead of calling) the morning we were leaving for the mountains but the property contact didn't receive it. When we arrived there was no way to get in the house and our cell phones didn't work in the area . We went down to the Mountain Grill and used their phone. The property contact arrived in about 30 minutes to let us in and give us a tour. It was our fault because the check-in instructions say to call 24 hours ahead of time to coordinate arrival but we didn't notice that until the morning and then added to the mistake by assuming e-mail would suffice. On the cell phone topic, we have AT&T and there was no service in the area starting about 20 - 30 minutes from the house. We did find out that Verizon works well in the area. Internet at the house was strong and there is also a landline so connectivity isn't an issue.

Overall we loved our weekend here and can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, I did not get to meet this fun family, but I can tell from the photos they shared with me that they had a wonderful, wonderful time. Anytime you can introduce a young son to fly fishing for trout, and be successful - that's a GREAT trip. Yes, I always send out instructions to my guests asking them to let me know 24 hrs in advance the APPROXIMATE time of arrival so we can have someone waiting at the home to welcome them. ATT cell service does not pick up in the mountains. Verizon does.

Lovely home in the mountains of N. Carolina...

  • 5 of 5

This home is well appointed and so comfortable. The best part was sitting on the porch gazing at the mountains...what a view! We visited everywhere from Johnson City, TN to Ashville, NC and points in between. Would highly recommend this home!

Owner's Response: So happy this wonderful family got to explore the area. One can be in Asheville, and in Boone/Blowing Rock in an hour, and in Johnson City within 40 minutes. Everyone loves sitting on the wrap around front porch in the big red rockers and enjoying the mountains with a cup of coffee in morning and a glass of ice tea or wine in the evening. These folks, sadly, didn't walk to the blueberry/blackberry/rasberry patch to enjoy the fresh berries@

When I saw the 49 five star reviews and read many of the comments, I decided to rent the house. Count me as the 50th five star review. This house has fantastic views, is very well kept, clean, has plenty of space, and the beds were very comfortable. I would not hesitate to rent this house again.

I am an avid hiker, so having the Appalachian Trail nearby, was an added bonus.
