Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I had a really wonderful, restful time at your house. It was so clean and comfortable,and the house was set in such a peaceful surrounding. We loved the open, comonn space you had and we spent a lot of time hanging out by the fireplace in the living room together. We also enjoyed the kitchen where we could cook meals together. My dog was a little perturbed by the stuffed ducks initially - she couldn't stop growling at them - but got used to them by day 1.

I thought your website was useful (the photo gallery was especially selling) and the pot of flowers on the front porch was anice touch.

Thak you and we hope to come back again!

Down to the River.......

  • 4 of 5

West Jefferson Cabin is very private and the deck overlooking the river is very relaxing. We saw maybe three of four other people during our entire stay. Our family of 5 (2 adults - 3 kids) stayed a full week and enjoyed our time in West Jefferson. The cabin held all five of us very comfortably. We had lots of space including the back deck. The walk down the hill to river is well maintained and easy to navigate. The cabin is somewhat loud (which is typically for a wood structure) since the floors are wood with a few throw rugs. The upstairs bedrooms are laid over the master bedroom which means that you hear all the foot traffic in the upstairs bedrooms while you are sleeping in the master bedroom. You also hear all the foot traffic on the stairs since the head wall of the master is the same wall that the stairs are attached. The kitchen is well equipped but several of the pots and especially the frying pans are showing wear and need to be replaced. The grill on the deck works very well and is in great shape. The house was not completely clean when we arrived. Lots of dog hairs remained on the floors and rugs. We had to vacuum all the cushions on the deck chairs to remove the hair.

If you enjoy river fishing, this location is great. My son and myself spent several days fishing in the south fork of the New River. We caught smallmouth, red eye, and brim out of the river stretch around the cabin. The girls enjoyed swimming and floating in the river. The town of West Jefferson is 20 minutes away along with the groceries, gas, ice, etc. Zaloo's Canoes is also 20 minutes on the other side of the ridge on the south fork. We enjoyed a relaxing tube float down the river. Historic Todd is 30 minutes out and Boone is about 40 minutes.

Lovely Riverfront Home in a Peaceful Setting

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased to have the opportunity to spend time at Jeff's home on the New River. It was clean and well-maintained and every question or request for assistance I posed to Jeff during our stay was promptly and completely answered. I would recommend the property to others. Unfortunately, because our primary purpose for being in the area was to help family pack and move from Blowing Rock and move in and unpack in Boone we were unable to fully utilize the activities and attractions available close by Jeff's place.

What an adventure

  • 5 of 5

Even though due to a storm upon arrival that left us without power for 2 days, our stay couldn't have been more enjoyable. This home gives you plenty of room for porch living at its best. Jeff, the owner checked on us several times. We felt safe all the time. Our 2 dogs enjoyed it as much as we did. The steps to the river help with the steep grade. Loved the breezes the birds. Felt like we were in a tree house. Master bedroom bed extremely comfortable. Already looking at the calendar for a return. Awesome stay.

very nice. we enjoyed the house and the location

  • 5 of 5

If you like the mountain area you will love this house and property. It is very secluded and has a nice view of the river. Quiet neighborhood and easy access to West Jefferson for essentials. We hope to visit again next year and the year after. I would recommend this house for a cozy getaway anytime!

Beuatiful, peaceful, secluded cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is wonderful. My wife and I went over valentines weekend with our 7 month old and had an awesome time. Its Back in the woods with a perfect view of the river from the back deck. Kitchen it well stocked for everything you could possible need. It was very cold when we went so we made some short trips down to look at the river. The steps are very convenient when making the trip back up the mountain. We only used the master bedroom but the king bed was comfortable. Really enjoyed everything about the cabin. Would defiantly rent this cabin again without thinking twice.
