High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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.

Your Innkeepers,

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 High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

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.

Peaceful and immaculate with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked the cabin for our honeymoon, wanting a peaceful and scenic spot to begin our married life and relax after the stress of all the wedding planning. We could not have been happier with our choice. The cabin was spotless and so well organized - these owners truly think of everything. It was also very private yet convenient to dining, shopping and attractions. There was plenty to do nearby (Boone, Blowing Rock, Grandfather Mountain) but the property was so beautiful that there wasn't any need to leave. We so enjoyed just sitting, relaxing and taking in the views. There is plenty of seating, both indoor and outdoor, for that and also a rope swing that makes you feel like a kid again! The morning we were checking out, my husband said he would like to come back. We were definitely satisfied customers, and neither of us had a single complaint.

Everything we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was everything we hoped for and more! The owner's attention to every detail made the stay very enjoyable. Our children enjoyed the wild life in the area. We even saw a racoon on the back porch one early morning!

There is lots to do in the area and plenty of restaurants to choose from. We also cooked in a lot, the kitchen had everything we needed. The atmosphere was great for our special needs child as well.

The hosts are very welcoming and their company was like the icing on the cake. They are the type of people that you want to get to know.

We hate leaving the cabin and are already planning a return!

Fabulous Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Joanie & Gary for sharing your beautiful cabin. The views are stunning and the cabin is perfectly appointed. Our weather wasn't great but that didn't detract from our enjoyment as your property & the surrounding area are great for taking walks or just relaxing. Highly recommend the Cabin at Kilkelley.

Extraordinary Experience

  • 5 of 5

Blue Ridge Mountain views just don't get any better than this. This cabin has it all! The Kilkelly's have thought of everything to make your mountain retreat perfect. We were lucky enough that our son was able to see snow for the first time. Not too far from downtown, yet far enough to see thousands of stars in the night sky. Did I mention the views? We're talking never-ending layers of mountain ranges that disappear into the horizon. To top it off, Joanie and Gary were very kind and responsive during our stay. Absolutely a perfect vacation. We all can't wait to come back. This cabin books out quite aways and now I know why. Luckily, they've built the West wing condo that is private from the main house, yet has the same amazing views. See you soon!

CAN'T SAY ENOUGH !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Kilkelleys go way out of their way for your visit to be beyond perfect at their cabin and beautiful property. They are very pleasant and caring hosts who truly want you to enjoy your stay to perfection. Any and everything you need or may have forgotten to bring is there. My wife and I have stayed in many places before but none compare to this. As soon as we can get back to Boone this is where we will stay. No need to look anywhere else. Thank You Joanie & Gary.
