About Ellen Kinsinger
Originally from California, made a career move to North Carolina over 15 years ago and immediately fell in love with this beautiful State and it's people. I work in the legal technology industry and my husband is an aerial photographer. Though we live in the city, we are lucky to have enough room for four rescue dogs, a cat and organic garden. We enjoy our city life but escape often to the mountains to unwind and relax.
Ellen Kinsinger purchased this House in 2008
Why Ellen Kinsinger chose Jefferson
We decided to buy our mountain farmhouse because with our busy schedules and the dogs, we didn't get to travel as much as we liked. We decided to buy something we could easily get to and escape our everyday lives. We had vacationed often in and around West Jefferson and were already in enamored with the area. We fell in love with the 'farmhouse' the moment we stepped foot on the long front porch and were embraced by the cool breezes and peace and quiet of the mountains.
What makes this House unique
The Parkway Farmhouse has the charm of a mountain farmhouse with modern amenities. A sweeping front porch, cathedral entry, 9 foot ceilings, stacked rock gas fireplace and hardwood floors. The Farmhouse is a beautifully furnished and decorated home with many touches from local artists including art, pottery, lamps and soaps. The Farmhouse is located less than a mile off the breathtaking Blue Ridge Parkway. Walk out the front door and hike to stunning waterfalls or mountain vistas.

Float down the 'New', fish for trout, bike the Virginia Creeper Trail, or just sit on the front porch and watch the deer cross the yard and the birds on the feeder.

Could not have been more beautiful or comfortable.
I would heartily recommend the Parkway Farmhouse! New, spotlessly clean, surrounded by beautiful forest and countryside, and has everything to make a stay there comfortable and relaxing. Maybe the best VRBO experience I’ve had.
Adorable place that felt like home.
Even though we were snowed in and literally stuck, the parkway farmhouse didn't let us down. Everything you could need in the kitchen is at your fingertips. The hikes from the doorstep are gorgeous. Ellen and Bill couldn't have been more accommodating to our needs when our rental van was stuck in the snow. The local grocery delivery service was heaven sent. The artwork throughout the entire home was my absolute favorite. Best of all, our 2 dogs were able to tag along and enjoy the mountains too. This FL family hopes to come back but during a summer time, of course. We played all of the family games (several times), enjoyed the movie selection and netflix, and had family dance parties with the music selection to pass the time. Thank you for the memories made!
I'm so glad you had a good time and didn't let being snowed in hamper you enjoyment! Thank you for the kind words and, yes, please come again!
The house and back drop made for a quiet weekend away from it all.
The house was clean and offered all the amenities needed. The outdoors was accompanied by the sounds of the stream down below.
One word* Amazing!
The home is beautiful and equipped with everything you might need. Definitely a home away from home. The pictures do not do it justice. Ellen was a delight to work with she made sure we had everything we needed and then some. The perfect place to unwind and enjoy the outside while spending time with the family. We will definitely be back! Thank you so much .
Felt Like Home
So comfortable, so cozy, so relaxing! It felt like home within minutes of walking through the door. All the things you need and then some! Nice fireplace, tons of books and movies, plenty of cooking tools and utensils (even for preparing a holiday feast), jetted tub, and countless, well thought out personal touches throughout the whole house including wonderful smelling handsoaps and fun, tasteful decor! Our family had an amazing time spending Thanksgiving here! Ellen was very responsive and really great to work with! We highly recommend the Parkway Farmhouse and would love to stay here again in the future!
So glad you had a nice Thanksgiving weekend! Thank you for your kind words. Please do visit again!
Very nice property
We had a very nice stay in the property. It is well kitted out, with a very good range of cooking utensils , pans, and basics like dried herbs, salt and pepper etc. Some of previous guests hadn't cleaned some of the pans too well and when we moved some of the furniture in the lounge area there was grit from outside underneath.
Good size rooms generally. The front door does run with water as it's single glazed when cold outside. We had a few nights below zero and around zero.
Plenty of towels.
Even though it's within the trees the sun penetrates through for warm sitting on the front porch.
We would return again.
