Perfect Mountain retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully well-maintained home snuggled in the mountains with a gorgeous view. Sunsets were breathtaking! Lots of room - we had three families and were very comfortable. I would highly recommend this home to folks looking for a upscale mountain get-a-way. Downtown West Jefferson is very quaint and had lots of great shops!

Beautiful, clean, and lovely cabin surrounded by lovely views and close to town!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Kathy and Steve’s cabin was wonderful! The cabin was very large and easily accommodated our large party! The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed to start our vacation! We had a quick question and needed to call Kathy, she answered quickly from the number provided, and was very pleasant and helpful to speak with. The kids enjoyed the large variety of games and the adults enjoyed the outdoor fire station, as well as the convenience to the town of West Jefferson! The cabin views were nice, and although there were some neighbor cabins in the distance, you felt secluded and tucked away in the mountains. Our family enjoyed our stay and the overall quality exceeded our expectations! We will definitely be booking this cabin again! We would also highly recommend visiting Frosty’s Tree Farm, only 7 miles away! We had an amazing Christmas experience there with the kids!

Beautiful House, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house and location for our family's annual Thanksgiving trip. The house was everything we needed, size wise and location. Just a 5 minute drive to West Jefferson, which is a beautiful friendly little town. The game room was a big hit with the entire family. The only negative things about the stay was the fact that guests cannot use the hot tub, and the fact that the house is fully automated which means that the owners can control things such as heating/air, etc. from their home. Otherwise, it was a very enjoyable stay. Would definitely consider renting this house again.

Excellent house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice and a great location for us. The pictures do not do it justice. We rode the Virginia Creeper trail one day and the New River trail the following day and the house location was within an hour or less to both. Thanks so much to Kathy & Steve for sharing their lovely house with us. We will be back for sure.
