Overview

North Carolina Cabin Rental Photos and Description

The Glendale House

If you are interested in seclusion,

dark skies, endless scenic views with

the glorious Mount Jefferson as a

backdrop, birdsongs, deer and

turkey, you have found your vacation

cabin.

The Glendale House, situated on

33 acres at the end of a dirt road, is

ideal for folks wanting a break from

the urban pace. Just 82 miles from

downtown Winston-Salem, 1/4th

mile from the New River, 2 miles

from the Blue Ridge Parkway, the area

offers hiking, biking, golf,

tubing, canoeing, fishing, good

restaurants, a great arts district in

West Jefferson, and peace and quiet. Ben Long Fresco's are located in Glendale Springs, 3 miles from the cabin.

For the winter guest, weather permitting, tobogganing, sledding on the property, Appalachian Ski Mountain 32 miles via the Parkway.

The cozy 1,100 square foot

cabin is in a most beautiful place. The

cabin has maple floors and cabinets,

two bedrooms upstairs with hand crafted

beds, sunroom drawing in the

outside, one bathroom, no television,

no dishwasher, a washer and dryer,

picnic table and gas grill on the deck,

fire place in the back yard, a birdfilled

front yard, high speed wireless

internet connection and the upstairs has air conditioning. The cabin is

fully furnished and very inviting.

This lovely cabin is overlooking the New River Valley. As the fog raises in the morning and your coffee is brewing, you will see seven bends in this historic river valley and hear the rapids below. Your view is of the undistribued Blue Ridge Mountains with very few homes in the viewshed across the river valley.

The cabin is fully furnished. It is decorated with originial art, handcrafted furniture, pottery and photography. The office has high speed internet, a fax/copier and desk. A stargazer haven.

Thank you! We had a great time and were sad to leave yesterday. Just the unplugged vacation we needed.

What a great stay! My wife and I had the pleasure of vacationing here over the Christmas holiday. When we walked in on Christmas Eve there was Christmas music playing on the radio and it was a wonderful way to arrive. The cabin has everything you need, so we never had to venture into town. It sits at the end of the road on the backside of a small mountain. What a view! The farm on the road into the property is very scenic as well.

The dogs absolutely loved the place. There were plenty of places for them to play. We enjoyed some long walks up the road as well. The hill at the top of the driveway is the perfect place to take the sunrise or the sunset, the views are stunning.

What surprised us most was how beautiful the town of Jefferson is. The entire area is picture perfect mountain living. We took a ride to Blowing Rock and hiked Julian Price Park one day. The ride there was extremely scenic and made the hour seem like 15 minutes. The hike itself was nothing short of spectacular.

The only negative I would give is the upstairs bedrooms are not well suited for a tall guy. I banged my head a couple of times. You think I would have learned after the first time, not the case. That said, we would stay here again in a heartbeat and we look forward to coming back some time in the not too distant future.

Relaxation in the mountains

  • 4 of 5

No t.v. which I love. Very quiet and beautiful scenery. The sunsets were gorgeous . Beautiful place to take pictures. ShatleySprings is only 20 minutes away and a wonderful place to eat a big breakfast. Blowing Rock is about an hour away and unique shops to visit. Boone is another town close by with great shops and eating places.

Peaceful and Serene

  • 5 of 5

In our over 25 years in vacationing in the mountains of North Carolina, we have stayed in a variety of mountain cabins or retreats. We loved the Glendale House and really hated to leave. The description of seclusion, quiet, and comfortable is totally accurate. Sometimes cabin descriptions are totally inaccurate. The Glendale House feels like a home where other cabins do not and that is because the owners put so much of themselves into the house. You will have everything you need at the cabin, so not to worry in that department. The owners are very accommodating and quick in all communication. Getting to the house is very easy and we loved that so much. Easy to get to, but feeling you are away from the world. Enjoy the wicker chair in the sunroom. You can get an afternoon thunderstorm and still sit and enjoy the mountains surrounding you. Just terrific!

Peaceful is an understatement!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five, with three children (5, 12, 14), just returned from our stay at the Glendale house. The setting is beautiful and very peaceful. It is close to town (West Jefferson) and also an easy drive to Boone. We sat by the fire pit both nights. It was a real bonus to have dry firewood to use. The wireless internet worked very well. The house was stocked as though it was our own home. We tubed the New River one day (Zaloo's Canoes, which is just a few minutes from the house). The kids did not want to leave which is a great compliment itself. The owner was very easy to deal with, and the house was clean when we arrived. Wish we could go back next weekend!

Peaceful Solitude

We truly enjoyed our stay at The Glendale House. Beautiful views, cozy home with all that we needed and more. Our dogs loved the yard and our hikes down the mountain to the river. A perfect way to celebrate our nineteenth anniversary!
