Area Information
The cabin is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. The town where the cabin is located is called West Jefferson. The town is just a few minutes away from the cabin with plenty of things to do. We are located about a half an hour away from Boone and Blowing Rock, NC. These are also great towns to visit in the mountains. We are about 45 minutes away from Grandfather Mountain also one of our family's favorite attractions in the area.

West Jefferson is loaded with things to see and do. Our most popular attractions include the only cheese plant in North Carolina, with a viewing room where you can see the cheese being made as well as the ever popular St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, containing three of Ben Long’s frescoes. The farmers market on Saturday mornings during the growing season is also very popular in town. The town of West Jefferson also won a most pedestrian friendly award. It is an easy to walk through town to visit the art galleries and shops.

If relaxing and hiking are more of what you are looking for during your vacation, the cabin is also a fun place to relax on the porch and listen to the creek below. The hiking is great around the cabin with no neighbors in sight but close to town and necessary amenities. Please come and visit the area and find out why so many love the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Without a doubt this is the best cabin ever!

We were looking for a place to escape the noise and just relax...and we found it! This cabin is located in the perfect spot- nestled in the mountains, it's quiet & private...yet it's not too far from town. Once we arrived, it was like we were home. We could see that the owners took the time and effort to make it very warm and inviting. From the beautiful furniture and the colorful bedspreads to the hand-carved artwork and the gorgeous woodwork...there are so many special touches! One of the best things about the cabin is that you can hear the soothing sound of the water rushing over the rocks in the creek located just behind the large backyard. It was so relaxing to sit in the rocking chair and hear the soft sounds of the wind chime while our teens explored the grounds. We especially loved sitting by the fire pit at night under the stars. Everything was in perfect working order...the washer/dryer, dishwasher, fireplace, etc. It was very clean (spotless) and orderly. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, cooking utensils, pots/pans, coffee maker, etc. Just bring food and get cookin'! There was plenty of room for everyone. The layout of the cabin allows room for everyone to either gather together or go off on their own to have privacy. I could keep writing more wonderful comments but let me just say that it was perfect and we would definitely love to visit again! We will miss that cabin for sure!

Beautiful cabin that felt like home

Left on Jun 28, 2016 for a stay in Jun 2016
Our family enjoyed our week long stay at this cabin on Beaver Creek. Listening to the creek from the bed swing was everyone's favorite. The cabin was very tastefully decorated and the beds were super comfortable. I cooked quite a bit while we were there and found the kitchen to be well-equipped. I loved having ceiling fans in every room. We also enjoyed the bedrooms being on different levels as our children are 17 & 20, so everyone felt like they had some privacy without us being too far from each other & having three bathrooms was a luxury to our family. The cabin is only 10 minutes or so from West Jefferson which was very convenient. I found the owner very easy to work with and very hospitable. She followed up quickly and promptly answered questions. She even checked to be sure we arrived safely!
