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 High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

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. Take the Parkway to breakfast or lunch in Glendale Springs or the Historic Lodge in Doughton State Park. Dine at the River House or the quaint mountain town of West Jefferson. 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. Whatever your definition of a good time, you'll find it at the Parkway Farmhouse.

Amazing Visit!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at the Farmhouse. It is everything the pictures show and so much more. It is absolutely perfect. It was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for a relaxing week. The location was ideal. It is located off the Blue Ridge Parkway and within an hour of so many beautiful North Carolina sights. It was a great stay for our two dogs as well. They loved the long walks and friendly neighbors! We had a great day at Moses Lake off the parkway and loved the bike ride on the Virginia Creeper Trail. Both of those days were relaxing, beautiful and so much fun!

Ellen was great to work with. We loved our stay and look forward to returning.

This house was perfect for a weekend getaway. Everything we could have needed was right there. The house was beautifully decorated and so charming. The owners were great to work with. Kids had a blast exploring the area! Will be back again for sure!

Beautiful secluded vacation house. A gem at the bottom of Cruel Mountain. Nothing could be better.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been traveling to this area for the last thirty two years to visit our daughter and family in the West Jefferson area. This time we decided we needed to stay a little longer, not just a few days or week. How we happened to pick this jewel was a matter of beautiful luck. Ellen was a great owner to work with and was very helpful in showing us how to get to her home to peek through the windows (sneak preview), so we could decide if we wanted to rent for six weeks. Great decision. We were there nearly 6 weeks. Her home is immaculate, clean as a whistle, beautifully decorated with some wonderful original art pieces, and if you are a gourmet cook, you will be right at home in her well equipped kitchen. Very little, if anything, is missing. If it's raining - no worry. Stay at home, turn the gas fireplace on and watch satellite TV, or listen to close to 100 CD's, or watch top-rated DVD's, or read one of the many books that are available. Like the internet - great wi-fi available. If the weather is beautiful, look through all the travel information that Ellen has made available on all of the activities that are within a 50 mile radius. Or, if you are active, you can go hiking/walking in a friendly neighborhood. Do you like people, deer, and friendly dogs (three to be exact), you will see them on an almost daily basis. We thought it was a wonderful vacation site, and were not really ready to leave. If it is available, we will definitely do it again in 2017. Ellen was a wonderful host.

Great Vacation House, very accomodating

  • 5 of 5

We visited to get away from the humid, hot summer in Savannah. Ellen was great to work with. We selected the house as we could fly into the Ashe County airport in our private plane, rent a car from the local Ford dealer and avoid all the holiday traffic on the road. The house was extremely clean, had everything we wanted and was very well furnished with nice appliances and cooking supplies. We brought most of our own food and spent a lot of time in the house just enjoying the cool weather. We love to hike and did several paths around the house and in the local area. Ellen gives a lot of great information on the local establishments and makes it an easy rental.

I cannot imagine a better vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

This was the very first vacation rental property that I can give a one hundred percent satisfaction rating to. Our stay was the most pleasant experience we have ever had while vacationing. The owner of the property (Ellen) was the most responsive and accommodating person that my wife and I have ever dealt with. Everything about the property was outstanding but I personally was most impressed with the cleanliness (a pet peeve of mine, and usually my standards are not met in a vacation rental.) We also found everything we needed for entertainment and for a comfortable stay during a very rainy vacation. The owner was easy to contact and the neighbors were very helpful as well. Much to my pleasure it was very quiet and peaceful. Outside of two nice folks we met on a walk to the waterfall, the only other life we saw were deer, wild turkey, and two friendly dogs gave us a tail wag as they passed by the property. The house and property is so nicely maintained and picturesque, that it makes you want to take special care to keep it that way during your stay. I simply don't have any negatives to report.

A delightful Blue Ridge retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to the Farmhouse, and this time we stayed a week. The weather was beautiful and leaves were almost at their peak. As we expected, the Farmhouse was delightful, beautifully furnished and well stocked with all the necessities. Ellen is great to work with, and very responsive to any questions or concerns. We hiked almost every day on trails off the Blue Ridge Parkway, with short trips to Boone and into West Jefferson. We are already looking forward to our next visit!
