BREATHTAKING BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAIN VIEWS: WOW! LOG CABIN ON THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE
WE INVITE YOU TO RELAX AND REJUVENATE AT THE CABIN AT KILKELLYS!
Perched high on a finger ridge of the Eastern Continental Divide, in a gorgeous pristene area of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Kilkelly's luxurious CABIN provides amazing long-range views, fully comparable to those seen from nearby Blue Ridge Parkway overlooks. In this unique 22-acre setting, you are surrounded by tall mountains and deep valleys, while privately nestled among flowers and gardens. Privacy was key in locating the CABIN. It is several hundred yards down the ridge from the Main House, out of sight and sound. And there are no other buildings or dwellings within sight or sound.
The remarkable long-range and layered views from the CABIN are seen from a high and vaulted prospective, extending over 100 miles across natural, undisturbed woodlands and fields! Sunrises and sunsets are varied and magnificent. It's also a perfect place to experience dramatic weather changes and cloud formations -- above you and below! And at night, it's a star gazer's dream! With no city lights, the stars are bright and plentiful (we furnish binoculars). And there are no highways nearby, or traffic noise to interfere with orchestral sounds of nature. And WOW, we have NO MOSQUITOES! Kind of a mountain paradise.
The CABIN itself is a custom 1600 SF, upscale cedar log home. It has two King bedroom suites, two pull-out sofas, two full baths, a fully appointed and stocked kitchen, a large gas grill, comfortable dining for six (inside and out), fine living room couches and swivel-rocker chairs, and a stone gas fireplace. There is a small pantry, lots of cabinet space, a game room with an indoor shuffleboard, and four wide-screen HD TVs with DVRs and DVDs (one with 3D). On the outside is a covered front porch, and open deck wrap around to an elevated attached gazebo, a lower patio with a 6-person Jacuzzi, lounge chairs, hammocks, and swings. We also have outdoor play areas and equipment for children and adults, including a 45-foot rope swing, a geo-dome, a standard swing set, a regulation horse shoe pit, and a stone fire pit. And of course, many adjacent and nearby walking trails, streams, and cascades.
The Blue Ridge Parkway entrance at Bamboo Gap is only 1/3 mile from the CABIN, and Boone and Blowing Rock are just minutes away. Mileage distances: Boone downtown 5mi.; Blowing Rock downtown 8mi.; Appalachian Ski Mtn. 6mi.; Hawksnest Tubing & Zip Line Resort 18mi.; dSugar Mtn. Ski Resort 22mi.; Beech Mtn. Ski Resort 28mi; Banner Elk 22mi.; Grandfather Mtn. 19mi.; Linville Gorge Falls 34mi.; Mt. Mitchell 71mi.; Asheville 100mi.; West Jefferson 26mi.; Charlotte 100mi.; and HEAVEN -- 0mi.!
Our goal is to share this remarkable natural setting with our guests by providing private, warm and luxurious accommodations, and a memorable visit to the Blue Ridge Mountains.
WE WOULD LOVE TO WELCOME YOU TO THE CABIN AT KILKELLYS.
Joanie and Gary Kilkelly

About Joanie & Gary Kilkelly
We are grateful to able to share this beauty with others. We want to provide a unique vacation destination, centered around the solitude, serenity, and majesty of this special place in the oldest mountain range on our continent.
Joanie & Gary Kilkelly purchased this Cabin in 2009
Why Joanie & Gary Kilkelly chose New River
We are fortunate to live on a beautiful ridge that joins the Blue Ridge Parkway, midway between Blowing Rock and Boone. Wanting to share with others our magnificent year-round views of the mountains, we designed and built the CABIN on a private bluff further out our ridge and well apart from our Main House. Our mission is to provide our visitors with a rare combination of luxurious surroundings in the midst of some of the most rugged mountain beauty in the Appalachians. WE SUGGEST READING THE REVIEWS SUBMITTED BY OUR GUESTS. ALL REVIEWS AND GUEST COMMENTS ARE INCLUDED HERE AND ACCURATELY QUOTED.

The Perfect Escape
First time using VRBO and we are hooked. We wanted a quick getaway before school began again for the boys. We saw the great reviews for this place and quickly confirmed a weekend. I cannot imagine a better mountain location and understand now why guests are continuously repeat visitors. We found our stress levels dropping even more than the temperature as we settled in for the weekend. Had I known views like this would make two teenage boys forget about electronics, we would have done it much, much sooner. Both the views and the newly added tree swing took our breath away. We cannot wait to return, and are already introducing the location to friends and family. Thank you, Joanie and Gary! Your hospitality is unmatched.
Drawing guests back into the beautiful world of nature is what we strive to do so we are ESPECIALLY happy that your boys enjoyed it with you!! We are so happy that you were able to relax and will look forward to your return!

After 19 years, it is still magical to us as well! We are so happy to share the beauty and LOVE it when our guests return :-)
The cabin and views could not have been prettier! Cabin was fully stocked with games, dvds, and all the kitchenware that would you would need! Everything was clean and beautifully decorated with mountain decor and pretty touches everywhere! Beautiful indoor fireplace and comfortable beds. We didn’t even really want to leave while we were there...just relaxed and enjoyed the cabin.
Additionally we got stuck in the snow on the way up and the owners personally came with a plow and got us out! Talk about above and beyond!
We will definitely be back! Such an amazing place!
Perfect place for a getaway!
