Unique Round House nestled in the woods

Bedrooms 4
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 370 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

2 story round house with large wrap-around deck on each level. Wood burning fireplace and lots of well seasoned wood for the chilly nights. Gas fire starter makes lighting the fire a breeze.

Ceiling fans in all rooms will keep the mountain breezes flowing and if you need it a little cooler this home does feature central air conditioning.

Enter on the upper level to an open living, dining, fully equipped kitchen area. Lots of windows provide an open feeling. 2 bedrooms, master and half bath on upper level. The master bath features a Jacuzzi whirlpool tub and separate shower.

Circular stairs take you down to a sitting room with a small multi-game table. Queen bedroom, full bath, and laundry room with full size washer and dryer are on the lower level. A trundle bed that will sleep 2 persons is located in the laundry room.

Satellite television and a high speed internet connection with wireless router is included so you can surf the web or check email from anywhere in the home or on the deck with your wireless compatible laptop. You can also direct plug into the router . DVD and VCR with a selection of tapes and disks.

Located on the Eastern side of the mountains we are located at just the right elevation to typically be about 10 degrees cooler than the lowlands. We will occasionally get a moderate snowfall but often see much more snow on the tops of the mountains.

An easy ride of 2.2 miles takes you to the Blue Ridge Parkway for a drive to scenic vistas and trails to waterfalls. Nearby sites along the parkway include Northwest Trading Post, E. B. Jeffress Park, Dough-ton Park and Stone Mountain State Park.

Don't miss a visit to West Jefferson which features all the quaint country charm of a mountain village with all the conveniences of a larger city. While in town be sure to visit North Carolina's only cheese factory. You can watch cheese products being made and then buy some to take home. Also, be sure to visit the shops and art galleries throughout West Jefferson for a true mountain experience. Mount Jefferson State Park gives some beautiful views of the town and surrounding mountains.

Easy, scenic drives will take you to Blowing Rock, Boone and Ga-lax, VA.

You don't want to miss Glendale Springs and the Church of the Frescoes (one of two in Ashe County). Ben Long’s “Last Supper” fresco, a life-sized depiction is permanently enshrined in The Holy Trinity Episcopal Church.

Shatley Springs is a popular nearby destination famous for its natural spring water. It features an Inn as well as a restaurant serving country style cuisine.

About Owner/Property Manager

I designed this unique round house which has no interior weight-bearing walls. Yes, the rooms have walls, but we enjoy the open spaciousness and the many windows and glass doors which give us the feeling of being in the out-of-doors even when we are snug inside beside the fire on a wintry day. In the warmer season we enjoy relaxing in the large wooden swing, serving snacks on the wood coffee table in front of the swing.

We especially enjoy all the cultural offerings in the area. West Jefferson is chock-a-block full of galleries where we can see the artists at work, and even partake of lessons as well. Every July 4th West Jefferson celebrates 'Christmas in July' which is a remarkable craft fair and music festival all in one. Every July Appalachia State in Boone has its month-long cultural music and arts festival. King St has become a shoppers delight filled with unique shops and craft stores. We regularly check the Mountain Times weekly paper to plan our adventures.

November and December are the peak times to select our Christmas tree. Sometimes we even have a snowfall while we're strolling through the mountain-top fields.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 1993

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Millers Creek

Our house has the best of both worlds. Set more than 500 feet back from the road it is totally private and cannot be seen from the road. Yet, being on a main road, we are assured of not being snow-bound. Rt. 16 is always one of the first roads to be kept clear.

What makes this house unique

One of the special design features is that the lower level has a air hockey table and bedroom and bath, making it a very private place for a guest. When our children come to stay with us, they can have a private place for themselves when they need it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed staying at your mountain home this weekend. That house was so unique- my husband, who is a general contractor, was fascinated at the design. And the view from the back deck was incredible. We spent countless hours sitting on your porch swing enjoying the view of the mountain colors. It was a very relaxing, fun weekend site-seeing on the parkway and in surrounding areas. And certainly one of the cutest homes to stay in for our 25th wedding anniversary. Thanks again for the use of your home. God bless.

Beautiful round house with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this property! It was one of the most well stocked homes we have ever rented! There were 8 of us and we had plenty of room! We never even used the down stairs other than to play air hockey. The porch is absolutely stunning! The landscape around the home is also beautiful! My only recommendation would be to have more blankets and maybe add TVs in the upstairs bedrooms, other than this you will not need a thing!!!!!!! We were able to cook and eat many meals here! The wifi connection was great! This is a wonderful place for kids, they found many board games, logos and blocks!!! The air hockey table was the icing on the cake! This will always be a great memory for us! Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Beautiful, secluded home with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beautiful home! It is secluded and has an amazing view. The outdoor spaces are fantastic and inside it is cozy and comfortable. For those who want to cook their own meals as we do, this home had the most well-stocked kitchen we have ever found in a vacation rental. The pictures don't do this place justice. We are ready to return or just move in permanently! We have two young children and they keep asking when we can go back to our round mountain house. Don't be fooled by the pictures of this place, it is really lovely. It feels like visiting grandma's cozy mountain retreat! The wood burning fire was just the icing on the cake for us! And drinking morning coffee while swinging on the deck looking at the beautiful mountain view was just the perfect way to start the day. West Jefferson is a very charming little town and we had an excellent meal at the Park Vista Inn and would highly recommend it to anyone staying at this home. We will definitely be back! Thank you for sharing your home and helping our family to make wonderful memories!
