About Kent Zotter

My goal is to provide top notch accommodations for you and your guests. I want you to truly relax and enjoy our beautiful mountains, wonderful people and memorable sights.

I live on the mountain and wouldn't trade it for anything...I want you to enjoy it so much that you'll return again and again.

Why Kent Zotter chose West Jefferson

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks for the beautiful views and the wonderful accommodations. Everything was perfect. We'll be back for sure.

Beautiful Home and Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about the Almost Mile High Cabin! It is beautifully furnished and the view is incredible. We enjoyed drinking our coffee on the back deck in the mornings and then watching the sun set behind the mountains in the evening. The Cabin had everything we needed and was very clean, cozy and comfortable. It felt like home! We had such a wonderful and relaxing time and hated to leave. Thank you Kent for sharing your home with us. We hope to be back soon!

Beautiful home with a gorgeous view of the mountains! Leaves were brilliant and even got a little snow...which was a treat! Very comfortable and well equipped. Especially enjoyed the fire place and jacuzzi. Hope to return again!

Our Autumn Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at this beautiful home. Never did we expect to see the Autumn colors that far into the mountains, so late. The pictures just can't do this cabin justice. There were 8 family members gathering for a relaxing mountain vacation, and this far exceeded our expectations. I hesitate to write a glowing review, because we want to go back and visit during Springtime, and would like to keep this gem a secret! The mountains were in full bloom with color when we arrived, by Sunday we had a little snow shower. MOST of our crew were beyond excited, others, not so much...Everything you could possibly need is there, and a short drive will get you to Boone and Blowing Rock. We spent most of time in the cabin with a fire and that unbelievable view! Hope to return many more times..Thank you Kent, for sharing this home with us.

Exceeded our expectations!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to get away to a peaceful, beautiful, neat, comfortable house with a breathtaking view, you found it!! We spent 5 days in this house where everything i needed was right there. Even a tea pot!!! I don't drink coffee and they had a tea pot! It is the small things that sometimes make the biggest differences. We rode motorcycle in the mornings and spent the rest of the day in the house, even when it rained we enjoyed the deck area under roof. The Ingles supermarket is less than 4 miles away! The landscape in the house is super nice. We saw deer walking in the back and front yard!! Make sure to take a walk up to the top of peaneckle rd, about 20 minutes and the view is unbelievable! The property manager could not be any nicer, everything he mentioned during our first conversation was accurate. He followed up to make sure our vacation experience was one of a kind. Well, you would think someone paid me to write this review but I assure you it's not the case, in Fact I never write reviews but this one really deserves it!!!! If you decide to stay here, enjoy it and take good care of it! Someone put a lot of work and thought into every detail. Great job! Thank you!!

'Sky High' is located in beautiful Ashe County, North Carolina nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains on Bald Mountain.

The county is home to some of the countries finest Christmas tree farms and is a wonderful place to start a family tradition of gathering your Christmas tree every year.

The closest town is West Jefferson, NC. This quaint mountain town is a great place to wander from shop to shop to find all sorts of treasures. There are several antique shops, arts & crafts, art galleries, clothing and general merchandise shops available for your shopping pleasure. Don't forget to visit the Ashe County Cheese Factory while you're in town. They offer many fine cheeses and wines.

Within a short 6 mile drive from 'Sky High' you'll find excellent dining. The Hotel Tavern offers some great meals with atmosphere at reasonable prices. Boondocks Restaurant offers up equally delicious food for our hungry guests. Both of these and several other eating establishments can be found in downtown West Jefferson.

Ashe County is fortunate to have the historic New River running through it. You can enjoy rafting, canoeing or kayaking almost year round. Several outfitters can provide all of the necessary equipment for a memorable river trip. If fly fishing is on your list then you'll discover many streams and creeks within a short drive of 'Sky High'.

You'll have to visit Mount Jefferson and take the easy hike to the top with your picnic lunch and camera. Views of the surrounding countryside make for some terrific vacation photos.

Some of our guests enjoy hiking and have found several trails nearby. The Appalachian Trail is about 20 miles north of 'Sky High'. You can load up your backpack or day pack and head up or down the trail. Grayson Highlands State Park provides sanctuary for wild ponies along the trail as well.

If you like to take a leisurely drive to see some outstanding vistas and historical sites then the Blue Ridge Parkway is for you. Getting to the Parkway is a short drive and well worth the trip. Be sure to take a lunch and find a comfortable shady tree along the way.

Winter in the mountains are great. You're a short hop to skiing from 'Sky High'. Sugar Mountain Resort, Beech Mountain Resort, Appalachian Ski Mountain are all anxious to provide some great skiing & tubing experiences.

You're also very close to Boone, Banner Elk and Blowing Rock. These towns all offer some excellent dining and shopping opportunities. After a day of shopping you'll appreciate the quiet and comfort of 'Sky High'.

Plan your next company retreat or team building event right here at 'Sky High'. There's plenty of room for your function.

There's nothing like sipping a glass of your favorite beverage while rocking on the deck trying to count the mountain tops. The 50 mile view is worth the trip.
