I can't tell you how awesome it is to wake each day and look out over this beautiful land. It doesn't matter whether the sun is shining or a drizzle or snowflakes coming down...each has it's own beauty here on the mountain.
Some of the greatest amenities of 'Sky High' are the views from the cabin and the fresh air. You can find other cabins in our area but none like 'Sky High' for it's accommodation, beauty and access. You'll enjoy privacy yet be close enough to other attractions.
Consider 'Sky High' your retreat away from home!
Thanks for the beautiful views and the wonderful accommodations. Everything was perfect. We'll be back for sure.
My family stayed at the cabin for 5 nights and we absolutely loved the cabin. Very spacious, comfortable cabin with lovely light and beautiful mountain views. The fire pit is welcoming and jacuzzi is a plus. Rooms are comfortable and clean. The kitchen was easy to cook in and we loved the dining space which is very inviting. It is pretty high up the mountain so make sure you have 4 wheel drive or you won't get up in the winter time if there is ice. Kent was great to work with and super accommodating. We will be back!
Sky High was perfect! We were looking for a place to escape the everyday. This cabin delivered above and beyond. I'd recommend this property to anyone. It was beautiful & peaceful. It's equally ideal for a couples getaway or a family retreat.
This was a spur of the moment trip to the mountains for us to help my wife survive yet another birthday. With two small dogs in tow, we spent 3 wonderful days at the cabin. The entire experience could not have been better...from making the arrangements thru Kent to the property itself. The property is very well accommodated and maintained impeccably. Within close proximity to West Jefferson and the Boone/Blowing Rock area, there is a ton to get out and do. We hit a brew pub in West Jefferson, the Town Tavern in Blowing Rock and a little French restaurant (Joy Bistro) in Boone during our stay. In between, we managed to slip in a really good bike ride on the Railroad Grade Road in Todd and the obligatory shopping in Blowing Rock. We both look forward to our next stay.
Our family of 6 adults and 1 granddaughter had a wonderful time at Sky High. The views were amazing, fall colors were everywhere. The cabin had everything we needed. We enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit as well. Everything was there to build a nice fire. We would definitely make a return trip.
Wonderful stay! Just a short drive to the Parkway! Had great day trips to Boone, Blowing Rock, and Grandfather Mountain! The property is beautiful and well equipped with everything we needed (and more). Very nice to have paved roads up to the cabin since we did drive a four-wheeled drive vehicle. We will be back for sure!
Immaculate, spacious, very comfortable home with all you need on hand. Amazing views, beautifully landscaped property.
We had a blast and are refreshed for our return to the real world.
Will be back again with more friends!
