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

Joanie & Gary Kilkelly purchased this cabin in 2009
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.

Great time! Came here to get away from the heat in FL. While an overcast & rainy week, it didn't matter with the wonderful gazebo. Spent most of our time out there. The cabin is fantastic. Will be back.
Our second visit didn't disappoint. Everything you could want for a relaxing get away. We love this place and look forward to going back soon!
The cabin was perfect and the property was beautiful. The views were amazing, it seems like you have the entire mountain range to yourself! Gary and Joannie were very accommodating, they are right down the street if you need help with anything. It was just two of us that stayed there, but it would be the perfect size to fit another couple as well, with two master bedrooms. We plan on coming back! If you are considering this place for your vacation, you will not be disappointed!
Joan and Gary have thought of everything. The cabin exceeded our expectations of comfort, view and relaxation. We actually booked another date while we were enjoying our stay. I can't say enough about how great this place is!!
The Cabin is everything it is claimed to be: beautiful, clean, secluded, and extremely well-appointed. The property around is also well-designed and aesthetic. Owners live nearly and were responsive to our questions and needs. They were hosts rather than property owners. We hope to return.
We were so pleased with this cabin! The location was easy to get to (no steep, difficult mountain roads), the cabin itself and the furnishings were top notch and very comfortable, and the view was incredible! We loved the cozy fireplace, the well-equipped kitchen, the wonderful gazebo and the gracious gift of homemade peach jam waiting for us upon arrival. The cabin is located near an entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway which made our daily outings so convenient. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The owners are nearby for any questions or concerns you might have, but the cabin has complete privacy out of view of the owner's home. We highly recommend this vacation cabin and plan to return again in the future!
Well its been a week since we left the Kilkelly's cabin in Boone N.C. and we are still talking about how great our experience was! We don't know if you can find a prettier spot on earth. If you want peace and quite, beautiful mountain sunrises and sunsets you need not to look any further! The cabin was absolutely the most beautiful, most perfectly equipped home we have rented through VROB and we have rented quite a few over the years! A week really isn't enough to take advantage of all the amenities this cabin has to offer. Nothing but first class! More importantly we would be remise if we didn't mention our hosts for the week, Joanie and Gary Kilkelly. They are without a doubt two of the finest people we have ever meet. After spending our first 10 minutes with them, we felt we had known them all of our lives! We both agree that they are the real reason to rent their cabin. They leave absolutely nothing unattended! So if you like what you have read in this review, book this cabin now! We did our booking in January 2016 and there were only two weeks open between March and November. Pretty much says it all right there! Thanks Joanie and Gary for a unforgettable week! We will return! Sharon and Ted
