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.
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!!
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
I wanted to take my wife somewhere special for her birthday and this placed offered breathtaking views and a beautiful and very spacious cabin. This place is very well maintained. Very welcoming as they had cookies and chocolates waiting for you when you arrive. They had a really nice shuffleboard table, hot tub and were stocked with a ton of board games and movies for the evening times. We had such a great time! Gary and Joanie are the nicest people and were extremely accommodating.
Wow, this place was awesome! Everything you need is pretty much provided. The amenities and decor made us not want to leave. And the views, amazing...the views are unforgettable. Thanks so much for the wonderful hospitality and allowing us to stay in your lovely home.
The easiest thing I could write is: Just Book It and Go! You will NOT be sorry! However, this would not do justice to Joanie and Gary Kilkelly, the owners of this amazing property. We arrived and were greeted by Joanie and Gary upon check-in at their beautiful home. They gave us a brief overview of the cabin, things to do, places to shop, etc. When we walked into the cabin, we were mesmerized of course by the gorgeous view and found a nice touch of cookies waiting on the island in the kitchen. We took a quick look around and headed to Boone (only 10 minutes away) for groceries, etc. Boone is a very neat town and has everything you could need - including a hospital in case of emergencies!! Back to the cabin, it was so unique. You actually walk in on the second floor where the open kitchen/dining/living area is. The kitchen is furnished with anything you could need, the living area is very cozy with a large flat screen TV, the picture window amazing and the gas fireplace an awesome touch. Also located on this floor is a wonderful king bedroom with another large TV and large bathroom with double sinks and a large walk-in shower. When you step outside on this floor, you will find the swing and awesome view you see in the pictures on this VRBO property page in addition to a wrap-around deck, where the Kilkelly's provide seating areas with a "side" view and front porch view. The views are magical - we can't even describe them - you just have to see it for yourself. You will be in awe. When you head downstairs, you find another awesome space: a large entertainment space with a another large flatscreen TV equipped with 3D viewing availability, DVDs, books, games and a huge shuffle board game that is a lot of fun. You will also find another beautiful cozy king bedroom with a large window to the backyard, large TV and a large bathroom with double sinks and a large walk-in shower. As you walk outside on this floor, you find a beautiful small backyard and a large hot tub - again with great views. I could go on and on, however I will close with the privacy provided at this cabin. It's like your own little world. You are surrounded by beautiful landscaping and the mountain views of course. The Kilkelly's did a beautiful job with the setting! Again, Just BOOK it - you will NOT be disappointed! Thanks Joanie and Gary!
