About Dayle Smith

Our beautiful creek side property was purchased for family enjoyment. We are greatful to be able to share it with our daughters, their husbands, and our 8 grandchildren and now, through the rental cabins, with others. Our goal is to keep it as natural as possible, providing a legacy of enjoying the out of doors for our family. If you need more space we have an adjacent cottage that sleeps 8.

Dayle Smith purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Dayle Smith chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

All we could think about when we saw it is 'what a beautiful, healthy, safe place to be a child'....just drive into the driveway and all the distractions of the world go away.

What makes this cabin unique

This property has given us a 'both/and' experience. We are away, in a quiet, natural setting, yet we are only 10 miles from the enchanting town of West Jefferson and 40 miles from Boone.

The benefits of being right on the creek are too numerous to mention! The sounds, the fishing, the kayaking/rafting, and just the watching of all the birds, deer, and other critters is more entertainment than we can almost take in!

Beautiful cabin in picturesque and relaxing mountain area

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we pulled up to the property, we knew this was going to be a memorable experience for our family. Being avid fishermen, my boys couldn't wait to start fishing the creek. A break from our city life was very much needed and welcomed. They ran wild and loved staying in the cozy and amply stocked cabin. Dayle and Linda were amazing hosts who felt like family. Mr. Jones, the owner, was also there to share a wealth of information about fishing for trout. We were not too far from Boone and made that drive to the area for snow tubing. The small and adorable town of West Jefferson was nearby and we went there twice for lunch and dinner and to shop for some groceries. We celebrated my son's 7th birthday while there - definitely his favorite birthday so far. We hope to go back to make more memories.

Perfect place for my active outdoorsy family !!!

  • 5 of 5

I spent the week with my 4 sons ages 13 to 24 on the creek at this fabulous house. The house was very clean and stocked with everything we would need. Dayle and Linda took excellent care of us ! We were supplied all the fishing equipment and my sons had the best time catching trout.They even got to watch them restock the stream. With the bikes that were supplied ,we enjoyed a great long bike ride along the New River on a beautiful dirt road. We spent a day hiking in Grayson Highland State Park and saw the wild ponies on the AT. Tuesday night we went to Sparta to the Alleghany Jubilee where we clogged and square danced to live old time bluegrass. One day we went skiing on Beech Mountain which was only a little over an hours drive. The last day we got several inches of snow and again we were supplied with snow sleds and topped off our perfect week with a ton of laughter. Living near the beach in Charleston, S.C. we felt especially lucky to build a snowman ! This place is beautiful with so many "toys" supplied for any age that you really never need to leave the creek. We are already planning on going back again in the near future. Thank you Dayle and Linda for your kind hospitality !!!!

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Grassy Creek and we made reservations for another trip in October. Property is beautiful and so well maintained by Dayle and his crew. Dayle and Linda go above and beyond to make your stay perfect. We look forward to many more trips to Grassy Creek. On our most recent trip did the Virginia Creeper Trail which was awesome and of course Shatley Springs Restaurant is just down the road for some great food. And don't forget West Jefferson a great mountain town to visit.

My wife son father in law and myself stayed here for 3 days. The cabin was beautiful cozy and well stocked. The property manager's dale and linda do a wonderful job on the grounds and cabins. They made us feel at home and like part of the family. The fishing is amazing. My son is 4 and he caught lots of rainbows as did the rest of us. We thru a frizbee around caught lightening bugs fished enjoyed coffee on the deck made smores and enjoyed family time. We have been on several vacations but this was our favorite.

The cabin is located on one of North Carolina's primier trout streams and the owner routinely stocks the water in addition to the state stocking program. Located on a dead end with only three other cabins on the 6 plus acres this is an ideal seculded get away yet only 300 yards back to a paved state road. The property has open grass

areas for games and biking riding on the local gravel roads with little traffic. An outdoor fireplace with wood provided is a great gathering place down by the creek. Local canoe outfitters can provide services for canoeing or tubing the New River. The historic town of West Jefferson is located just 10 minutes away with all the necessary services, grocery stores, restaurants and liquor store. For those who want a break from the pease and quiet the townes of Boone and Blowing Rock are 45 mintures away on good roads. These locations provide great outlet shopping, snow skiing, and dinning options. To the north one will find Grayson Highlands National Park with great hiking options and the Virginia Creeper Bike Trail, one of the highlights of the ares.
