    I would definitely recommend booking this cabin! The location is perfect because it feels secluded but you are only 10-15 minutes away from the grocery store, restaurants, and shops! We loved the deck! It is able to be closed off so we could keep the doors open to get a breeze while allowing our dogs to roam around the deck and not escape! We had 3 couples stay here as an escape from the hurricane and none of us wanted to leave! The management company was very helpful with booking us last minute! We will definitely be booking this cabin again!

    a guest from Connelly Springs, NC recommends this vacation rental

    Overall the house was very nice and clean. We enjoyed coffee on the deck in the morning and playing pool/ping pong in the evenings. The trails around the house were nice but unfortunately very messy due to recent rains. My biggest complaint is the location of the house in relation to the river. Think the location would better be described as river view instead of river front. It is quite the haul to the river and not easily accessible once you get there. Couldn't even hear the river from the lovely deck. If the river isn't in your plans, the setting in the woods is nice. Lots of birds to enjoy.

    Belinda M from Thomasville, NC recommends this vacation rental

    It was just wonderful. My husband and I wanted to get away for the weekend. Our birthdays are 1 week apart so we decided to treat each other to this "cabin" as our gifts to each other. We were floored by the "cabin". It is absolutely beautiful! Far above our expectations. The whole house is just lovely. Our only complaint is that the path to the river was pretty rugged. We had a hard time getting there and back. The clearing was not sufficient for a fishing spot which is his favorite thing to do on vacation. It would be nice if you could invest in making the path a bit more accessible and some sort of pier or step down access to the river. Our expectation from the photos was that we could walk out the back door and be right on the river which is not the case. We still had the best time so it did not deter anything. We just wanted to make that suggestion to the owners of the property for future visits...which we hope will be many!

    We had a great stay at this rental. The location was convenient to West Jefferson and we enjoyed being close to the river. Six of us stayed there comfortably and there was room for two more on the pullout couch in the basement. Had fun using the ping pong and pool table. We had a minor inconvenience when the hot tub wasn't functioning correctly, but after contacting the property manager a technician fixed it the same day. Felt like the manager was very attentive to our needs, and she scheduled the technician to come while we were in town on a Sunday. Overall we had a great time - my wife was happy and thus I would definitely stay here again.

    My husband and I rented the cabin for a weekend getaway and it was the perfect house to rent. We brought our 1 1/2 year old and the house was very kid friendly. They had kids cups in the cabinet and baby gates to use. The outside balcony had a gate you could close so we didn't have to worry about him wondering of the deck and could enjoy the scenery without constantly watching him. The house was nice and cozy with a great fireplace. We enjoyed the hot tub and pool table and walking along the river. My only negative was that the loft area gets extremely warm with the fireplace on that's downstairs and does not ventilate well. This is a great place for a couples getaway or for families!

    Having rented cabins in the mountains, thought we give river frontage a try. Having a five year old granddaughter with us, this presented plenty of exploration options. Plenty to keep busy here from hiking to river play to ping pong. This offers all without having to get in a car and drive to destination. Home was comfortable and clean. Could only imagine how spectacular fall foliage would be here, especially from comfort of hot tub.

    • Manager Responded on 9/21/2016

      Thank you for your review. We are happy that you and your family kept busy and enjoyed the hiking and the river. It's nice to "get away from it all" and it sounds like you did just that! Fall colors are amazing and visitors can find pumpkin patches and corn maze to enjoy. We hope to see you soon!

    The cabin was great, my family of 5 enjoyed the stay. The fact that we could walk right down the path and play in the New River was wonderful. The town of West Jefferson was close enough for quick convenient trips. The area has a lot to offer if you are willing to drive. The only real issue was garbage disposal we had to drive over a half hour to the transfer station. Better directions or an accurate map of dump locations would be helpful.

    This cabin/vacation is just what our family needed, our last before our daughter's wedding. If you need to get away from your busy life, this is the place for you. The property was very peaceful, quite and nestled in the woods. Even though it rained our last day, everyone had numerous options for inside entertainment. The t.v. was only turned on for an hour the entire trip. I do have to point out two negatives. One, the driveway is difficult and needs some work. Two, is the trail to the river. The river is visible from the cabin. However, to get there you have to HIKE a long trail. It would be nice if there was easier access.

    The cabin is nice, basic necessities are provided, but not much extra. TV is tiny and only basic channels avalible, which was disappointing when its cold and late and just want to cuddle up to a movie. Hot tub was a nice touch, relaxing and somewhat scheduled in the woods. Love the location and scenery. The cabin just felt like a renatl property not much effory made to make it feel as homey as ones i have stayed in the past. The grill has been upgraded since past reviews which was also a nice touch. The outside enviorment and river view is very pretty. I enjoyed the stay overall.

    Our group (including pets!) had a great time here. The cabin is seated right above the river and although there are neighbors, they're far enough away to give you some privacy. We had no disturbances during our visit, the kids loved the pool and ping pong tables, and the adults loved the hot tub. Just a short drive to West Jefferson, Boone, Blowing Rock, you name it.

    Although we have lots of experience renting for ourselves and being landlords,this was our first experience renting a cabin for a family weekend with grown children and grandchild. The cabin was cozy, clean, and convenient to hiking along the river. It was a beautiful, quiet, private place and suited our needs quite well. We did have a little trouble getting back up the hill out of the driveway since we did not have a four-wheel drive vehicle. I have never seen so many rules and extra potential fees that could be charged!

    This cabin has been our vacation spot for the last few years. It's been perfect for our family of four (kids middle school to high school age. The cabin is beautiful and spacious. The setting is lovely. You can see, hear, and easily walk to the river. We especially enjoy sitting out on the upper deck, surrounded by the tree tops. The hot tub has been a nice addition. With the pool table, cable TV, books and Wi-Fi there's plenty to do inside on rainy days. There's plenty of daily activities and all you might need in the way of retail within a short drive. We plan to go back again.
    The property description was accurate. We found it originally online and have been pleasantly surprised that it was even nicer than we expected. The property was clean and well-maintained. The property manager Jerrita Roark, has always been helpful and easy to work with. We have recommended this rental to friends and relatives. West Jefferson and the surrounding area has good restaurants, art galleries, and fun vacation retail outlets. Tubing, kayaking etc available and user-friendly. The church frescoes, the Blue Ridge Parkway and driving anywhere in the countryside all relaxing and interesting.

    The cabin was everything we hoped it would be. Very clean and comfortable. We did have to call in regarding the fireplace. We could not get it to come on the afternoon we arrived. Maintenance promptly came the next morning and fixed the problem. The river was a bit difficult to get to and there is a hill that you go down to get to the cabin. Going down was fine but we did have problems going back up but we did make it! With that we still would definitely stay there again and hope to go back next year.

    This home is much better than it looks in the picture. It is located in the woods. It is like a tree house. You can barely see the River but it is nice walk down the hill on a path. The home using blonde wood finishes to keep it from being dark inside. Beds are Serta Perfect Sleepers and we found them to be great. There was even a coffee grinder. But the best thing was the large railed porch outside has a gate so you kids or your dog can stay out here and not run off. You are in the woods, so yes a bug might come in the window or door, so get over it. The Pool Table was better for my family than a heated pool. Lots of woods around and very few homes.

    The rental was wonderful. It felt like home. A well-outfitted kitchen, comfortable sleeping accommodations, with large windows looking out onto a canopy of trees running down to the New River. The living room/dining room was relaxed and perfect for watching TV or playing board games. Downstairs is a full size pool table which can be converted for ping pong. We were about 15 minutes from Zaloo's Canoes where you can canoe or kayak down the New River. We'll likely visit the area again and stay at the same place.

    We had such a great time in Ashe County and the cabin was perfect. Clean and comfortable yes, enjoyed the deck in all times of the day. Due to the rain, we were not able to sit along on banks of the river. We found plenty to do in the area including The Virginia Creeper Trail, Greyson Highland as well as the lovely town of West Jefferson.

    We had such a great time this weekend! The cabin was very clean and in a great location. Loved being on the porch an listening to the river flow. We tried our hand at fishing, but with the recent rainfall the river was too muddy and swift. Hopefully next time we will have better luck. We hope to stay a week next time!

    a guest from Elm City, NC recommends this vacation rental

    First time my family & dog stayed at cabin by ourselves without other families. We enjoyed the trail down to the river and the sandy little island look it had. Awesome cabin and everything we needed for cooking. The snow coming down at night was a spectacular view from the large windows. Beds were all comfy and cozy at night. Large game room down stairs kept my teenagers entertained thru the weekend stay. Loved the gate on the upper deck as well for keeping my little beagle inside while we cooked on the grill. Although the lower deck porch and spot light bulbs were blown and it was total darkness the first night until we went to town the next day and picked up some bulbs. We didn't mind at all though, just needed more light going out at night with our pet. Some of the games were in bad shape and a little roughed up, but kids stuck with the ping pong & shooting pool. Overall stay was absolutely wonderful and pleasant! Our family plan to come back and spend a week during the warmer months at this same cabin and enjoy fishing and trails. Maybe bring two extra people with us because we had plenty of room. Wouldn't change anything about this cabin. Maybe just add some curtains or blinds in the downstairs game room for more privacy if someone wanted to sleep on the sleeper sofa. Adding a hot tub and a large screen tv would be super nice as well. :) But we still enjoyed every minute during our stay in the cabin anyway. It was a very nice getaway after my daughter's last chemo. Kind of a special celebration for us all. We needed this and will need it again I'm sure! Thank you Ashe High County Rentals for this great stay! We have been blessed.

    Nice, well maintained log cabin. It has a open floor plan. It does have a steep gravel driveway going down to the cabin. Plenty of room with 8 family members and our dog. Only things I would add would be a dish rack to dry dishes, automatic ice dispenser (cabin has ice trays) and a set of bunk beds. There is plenty of room in the basement to add a set in the back corner. There is a full bath on each floor. Sheets & towels included. The trail to the river is a great way to get some exercise. We had a great time! Enjoyed the cabin. Note to fishermen, this section of the river is not stocked.

    • Manager Responded on 7/31/2012

      Creeks, streams and smaller sections of the New River are stocked. This area is native fishing and the New River boasts some of the best small mouth bass fishing in this area!

    Jeffrey S from Fort Lauderdale, FL recommends this vacation rental

    We just returned from our "Fall Vacation" in the mountains of North Carolina, Virginia and Tennesse. Our vacation property located at 140 Hickory Lane, WJ NC is nestled among other properties however, we really enjoyed its location, which made us feel as though we were the only property there. Our property had a walking trail that led down to the river, where we used our fly fishing rods for the first time. We saw plenty of trout, however couldn't bring any to the dinner table. Maybe next trip. The staff at Ashe High Country Vacations were professional, helpful, and informative. The only downside experience was at our departure where we had to dispose of our bagged trash. The problem wasn't the fact that we were asked to dispose of it--it was finding room
    in our truck with luggage and family. Maybe the staff could reconsider this request. Other than that we had a great time and will return next year for sure.

    a guest from Robersonville, NC recommends this vacation rental

    The cabin was very nice, and we particularly enjoyed the gated covered deck, and the leather couch. Our teenage children enjoyed the pool table/ping pong table and the internet access.

    The cabin wasn't quite as clean as we would have liked. There was nothing glaring, but there was food stuck to the inside of the sink that someone missed when cleaning, and a few other cleaning things that probably only I would notice, having owned a commercial cleaning business in the past.

    The wooded/river setting was nice and the cabin was convenient to Lowe's Foods, Walmart, and restaurants. If you are bringing a family, bring extra toilet paper and paper towels. I was glad we brought our own bath cloths and towels, so that we had enough of those. Having a washer/dryer was convenient, so as not to have to bring home lots of laundry.

    Overall, we really enjoyed our visit to to the West Jefferson and Boone area.

    We usually go to the coast for vacation but decided to try the mountains this year and had a wonderful time. Everyone pouted when we had to leave! The house is in a very private location, sits on a hill with a view of the river (through the trees). It was extremely clean and the decor is beautiful. It rained almost every day when we were there but part of the upper deck is covered and we sat out on the deck and read and looked at the beautiful scenery. We also had so much fun playing pool and ping pong. The only negative thing I could say is that the gas grill is in poor condition. We didn't use it but cooked inside instead. There are lots of neat shops and restaurants in West Jefferson and Jefferson. We had planned to eat out a lot but ended up not wanting to leave the house! What a great time we had!

    We had a fun stay at Peace of the River. The property is located in an awesome location and the home is very warm, welcoming and tastefully designed. The kitchen has all the amenities you need. We will be back next year. The only thing I was a little disappointed
    about that that the porch was fully of dried leaves that we had to sweep up and the grill is not in very good condition.

    house was only two and a half hours and was a nice relaxing ride on 421.

    A Peace of the River is beautifully appointed. The kitchen had everything we wanted. The selection of games and the pool table were wonderful. We spent hours on the deck reading and looking at the river. Zaloos Canoes and the Blue Ridge Parkway are close by for when we did venture out. The walk to the river is no problem. The driveway to the cabin is a bit steep, but with our regular suv, we didn't have difficulty.

It was also very nice to have grocery stores and conveniences only 10 mins. away! We will definitely stay here again!

    a guest from Punta Gorda, FL recommends this vacation rental

    "Peace of the River" was just what we were looking for. The best part is a giant deck looking through the trees on the New River. There is small rapid and the distint sound of water on the smooth rocks was very relaxing. The set up of the rooms made for a good measure of privicy for five adults and the place seemed brand new. Very clean with comfortable beds and furniture. We also had fun walking down to the river and across a few trails. And one of the best aspects is the vicinity to West Jefferson. We excellent food, art, music, and friendly people, this is a destination. The road to the cabin is a little rough so would recommend a vehicle that can handle climbing and decending; I am glad I wasn't stuck with a rental compact at the airport. However, the cabin was perfect in every other way including the price

    The house itself was very nice and comfortable. The layout was good. The game room was spacious and so was the balcony. Everybody had a good time. The only thing that was a "setback" was the access to the river. It was a work-out by itself but it was a good hiking trail. Overall, we really had a good time at this rental.

      It's an easy walk down to the river however it's a little bit of a trekk back up, most folks just take their time for others it can be a nice workout.
