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 Wilkes County
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.

Beautiful Home & Views
Beautiful home with amazing views. Would definitely stay again.
Beautiful round house with amazing views
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!
We stayed for the week and loved it.
The home was perfect for our needs. Very convenient to Wilksboro where our photography company had a job. Very comfortable. We hope to be back soon.
Beautiful, secluded home with amazing views!
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!
This is a clean comfortable cabin that exceeded my expectatios, very peaceful, quiet in a private area, my wife and my 4 kids loved every bit of it, about 40 minutes away you will find the amazing stone mountain... Overall a great weekend if you love nature and peace.
Secluded but very accessible. Convient to New River canoeing and tubing. Blue Ridge Parkway 2.2 miles.
