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 High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

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.

Great Second Stay at Mile High

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Mile High. Again we found the VBRO home charming and exceedingly clean! We plan to go again next year for a third visit! The views are spectacular and the location to West Jefferson, Todd and Blowing Rock can't be beat. All the comforts of home can be found at Mile High. The kitchen is well stocked with needed cooking dishware. * One word of advice to future visitors -- remember the altitude can influence cooking time of food and baking temperatures needed. You will not find a better place to stay in the mountains of NC!

Amazing Cabin, Unbelievable Views

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our stay at Sky High and it was even more than we hoped for. As our first family trip to the NC mountains, we weren't sure exactly what to expect. We can't thank Kent enough for his help. He was very helpful before the trip answering questions and was available on our first day at the house to help with a few things.

First thing to know is that the cabin is even nicer than the photos show. The backyard includes a nice water feature which provides a babbling brook sound, a fire pit area, a hot tub and a gazebo with swing. The inside is well decorated and very comfortable. There is plenty of room to spread out but also it doesn't feel too big.

The views never get old and are simply amazing. Now to get such views, you need to be high up In the mountain. Be ready for a pretty serious drive up and down the mountain. It takes about 15 minutes. Luckily the roads are all paved which makes it much easier. The turns are quite angled and it takes some getting used to. I would be nervous to do it in snow & ice. There is so much wildlife around and not many people - which was just how we wanted it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. SkyHigh is located 1.8 miles up the mountain on a well maintained paved private road. The actual time to get up or down the mountain to the secondary DOT road is about 5 (five) minutes. If one pulls a large trailer then the trip might take 10 minutes. 4WD and AWD are not needed at all during the spring, summer and fall months. If one is not accustomed to mountain travel then it might feel a bit curvy but rest assured that the ride up or down the mountain is no more precarious than driving to your hometown grocery store... actually it's probably much safer :-)

Very Nice Home

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time. We chose this home because of the pictures and all the previous reviews were excellent. We were not disappointed! The home was very nicely appointed - It felt like someones home and not a rental property. Would definitely stay at Mile High again. We had one minor problem and the Owner Kent took care of it right away.

Great for Couples Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 couples meet here for a much needed reunion. The cabin was great! The views were beautiful and there was a bedroom and bathroom on each level - perfect! Kent was very responsive and easy to work with. The only disappointment was the game room was not well-insulated (converted garage) and the fireplace wasn't working, so it was too cold in October to hang out down there. But, we spent a lot of time in the hot tub, so it was fine! If we ever come back to West Jefferson, we will definitely rent this place again!

We planned a last minute trip with our kids. It was dark when we arrived but the beauty of the cabin was clear from the moment we arrived. The pictures of the inside and views do not do it justice, they are amazing. I was also extremely impressed with the cleanliness of the cabin. The views are breathtaking. Kent was extremely easy to get in touch with and made things easy for us. We have 5 young kids and the cabin was very easy for them to navigate and for us to feel safe walking around. I especially appreciated the baby gate that was there. All the beds were very comfortable. Me will definitely be back to Sky High and use Kent again. Thanks for a perfect family weekend!

'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.
