Why Kitty Hild chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

Seldom does a destination offer so much to do year-round. We never run out of things to entertain us when we are at our cabin, whether it is events in the area or fun family and friend activity at the cabin itself. We LOVE this escape from our otherwise hectic lives!

We enjoyed our stay at the cozy cottage very much. There were seven of us and we were all very comfortable. We loved our evening fires while relaxing in the hot tub. We had a great time. Best of all, Kitty was wonderful to work with.

Just what the doctor ordered! :)

The cabin was perfect for our group of 5. It is conveniently located 15 mins from town but far enough to feel like you're secluded in the woods. Exactly what we wanted! The outdoor area is perfect for morning coffee and evening dinners. The hot tub was great after a long day of driving back from the racetrack. The bedrooms are spacious and the cabin is equipped with everything you need. Kitty is extremely organization and it shows. Everything in the cabin is clearly labeled and anything you need to know about the cabin is provided in a binder. Checkin was extremely easy and kitty was in constant communication with us. She checked up on us to make sure everything was well. Overall a very good experience. We HIGHLY recommend kitty as a host and her cabin!

Picture Perfect! Rain or Shine you'll always have fun!

  • 5 of 5

Cabins are considered small, but this great 3 story home was wonderful. This was a perfect country home setting that fit all our needs. Mountain hikes, a running creek to walk or tube, gem mining and great forest view to sit on the porch and rock your stress away. Close drive to many attractions, shopping and chain restaurants or local steak houses. My family had all we needed here from outdoor adventures to inside fun. We did as much as we could just at the house making a fire pit roasting hot dogs and marsh mellows, sat in the hot tub, played competitive pool games and even brought our dog who loved the creek! Owner's communication was great and home was exactly as described. Wished we could have stayed longer! Next time we will stay longer and recommend our friends to check it out. Thank you for the good memories.

Our stay was perfect and Kitty was a delight to work with! Very flexible and willing to make our stay the best. Thank you!!! The house was just what we needed for lodging for a wedding weekend for a friend. And Valle Crucis is of course gorgeous!

awesome getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Yet conveniently located to great restaurants, hiking and all manner of things to occupy your time with. OR you could just sit on the porch swing all day and sip coffee.

Used the cabin for a guys golf weekend. Had plenty of space for all of us and was the perfect house for this trip. Pool table, dart board and fire pit were great additions to the weekend. House was immaculate and owner has well maintained.
