About Jim Massey

My name is Jim Massey. I am a Civil Engineer, General Contractor, and Real Estate Broker, born in Winston-Salem. I came to Roaring Gap in 1965 where I met and married my wife, Nancy. She is a registered nurse with a specialty in surgery in Elkin and my partner in the real estate and construction business. WE ARE NEW TO THE RENTAL BUSINESS AND WILL NEGOITATE OUR RATES BASED ON NUMBER OF NIGHTS AND NUMBER OF PEOPLE STAYING. WE WILL ALSO TALK TO YOU ABOUT YOUR BRINGING A PET.

Jim Massey purchased this chalet in 1998

Why Jim Massey chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

My company designed and built this house at about half its present size in 1966 for a couple from Winston-Salem. Years later we built them a bigger home two houses up the street, and sold this house to a couple from Florida. When it became available again in 1998, Nancy and I bought it because all the really good view lots had been built on and we had always dreamed of living on one of the spectacular view properties on Ridge Road. We gutted it down to the bare framing, doubled its size and built it all over again, finishing in 2000. We lived here for 10 years and then moved into a new home across the street in Olde Beau. Ultravista is presently for sale, but will not be shown when there is a guest in the house. LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR HOME BY VIEWING OUR MORE THAN 30 FIVE STAR REVIEWS!

What makes this chalet unique

Having designed and built almost all the view homes on Ridge Road, Nancy and I knew that the view was good, but didn't know it was spectacular until we lived there. I didn't know that sunrises sometimes are as beautiful as the best sunset. Also, I had no idea that a full moon could be so brilliantly exciting. Watching lightning storms in the valley from up here is really special. So are fireworks in valley communities on July 4th. When the fog is lying in the valley, the mountain tops look like islands in a cotton sea. And every night when the lights come on down below, called 'valley stars' by locals, it looks like a large city. The view is different every day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jim,Thank you again for your gracious hospitality. We truly enjoyed our stay and had a wonderful time. Everyone had nothing but good comments about the house, location and of course the beautiful view. I think we spent as much time on the deck as we could regardless of the weather!!! It was a perfect place for us!It was a pleasure to meet you and I look forward to seeing you again in the not to distant future.Kind regards,Bobby

Superb Family Lodging!

  • 5 of 5

I was bringing family and friends together for my son's wedding and needed a venue that could host three families with small children plus adults- a place that could offer some privacy yet entertain all ages. This was THE right place. From the family suites to the ping pong table to the relaxing deck, it could not have been better. When my four year old grandson discovered the tile garage with a kid's size basketball hoop, he was in heaven. We had a terrific time and much was due to the superb lodging that is designed to facilitate comfort and fun for all ages.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Kelly, for choosing our house atop Roaring Gap Mountain to celebrate your son's wedding and bringing a large group of all ages. Our large family lived there in a house I designed and built many years ago, and to see other families enjoy it the way we did does my heart good. The tile floor in the 3 car garage with kid's size basketball hoop and other games, the "kid safe" 80 foot long view deck, little people's loft with "secret room" , and other stuff seems to make children of all ages at home. Hope to see you again soon, Jim

Wedding festivities

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a long weekend to enjoy the beautiful wedding of our youngest son, which was held at the Raffaldini Winery. My, now daughter in law, wanted the rehearsal dinner on the back deck of the house and it was a beautiful event. The food was amazing, which was catered by Public 2 from Elkin. We had approximately 25 lovely people to enjoy the love of two families coming together from opposite location of the US.

Thank you very much for making our stay enjoyable to all.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Jane, for your thoughtful review of your trip to our area of the mountains. We get quite a few wedding groups, and are fortunate to have a house with large decks and open spaces to handle portions of the overall event. I enjoyed meeting some of the wedding party, and especially the photographs you sent for our "thank you" bulletin board. I wish you all the best!..........Jim

Year #4 and counting

  • 5 of 5

Our group of eight golfers was among the first to enjoy all the amenities that UltraVista has to offer and we're not going any where else any time soon. Already looking forward to 2017 and our fifth year taking advantage of Jim's most gracious hospitality. Each year, he has enhanced his property to appeal to many differing groups. We noticed this year that he had tiled in half of the garage to make a good place for kids to play, rain or shine.

The deck, however, remains our favored hangout. You cannot beat it.

Thanks for sharing, Jim.

Splendid June week in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Our group of ten had a delightful stay in this house. The views were ever changing over the valley and the scenery spectacular. The house itself had everything and more. We especially appreciated the showers and the laundry facilities. The group of us were more than satisfied and would recommend this homeowner to anyone. Wonderful place!

Our house on the mountain seems to suit large groups like yours, since we have lots of large comfortable bedrooms with views , plenty of baths, and get together areas. We enjoyed meeting you all, and look forward to having you as our guests again. Sincerely, Jim

Exceptional from the first view and breath.................................

  • 5 of 5

Open the front door and feel the world drift into the background. The view, the mountain scent. The cozy and inviting first floor and deck. Then you will need a map to wander the glorious array of rooms. stunning views and vistas from most bedrooms, the fragrant air wafting through. Showers, oh yes, be prepared to be pampered as well, the BIG soaking tub. Great pillows and linens. Rustic, modern and classic all combined to make everyone happy. Marvel at the Jade plants. Nothing is left wanting, you will feel at home at once. The host Jim is MOST gracious and accommodating.
