Additional information

Above the River is a beautiful, secluded vacation rental cabin located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Ashe County, North Carolina, just a short drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the towns of West Jefferson and Jefferson. Located less than 30 minutes from the Boone area, and about 45 minutes south of Grayson Highlands State Park or the Virginia Creeper Trail (biking, hiking and horseback riding) the cabin is ideally located to enjoy a vacation year round. Our mountain cabin has river views and is just a three minute walk to the New River. The cabin has miles of walking trails – you will feel like you are vacationing in a park.

If you enjoy bicycling, hiking, canoeing, tubing, kayaking, fishing, shopping, dining or just plain relaxing, consider Above the River for your next getaway. Cozy enough for two, but large enough to sleep 8, this cabin has 3 bedrooms (king size bed, double bed, 2 twins), 3 baths, and a sleeper sofa. The cabin is beautifully furnished, and features a complete kitchen, stone gas log fireplace, a gas grill, outdoor dining area, hot tub, three televisions (with cable and Netflix), a game table (pool, ping pong and air hockey), a family room, a washer and dryer, and assorted games and videos for the family to enjoy. Ashe County is home to many parks, including Mount Jefferson, the New River State Park, and the NC gamelands at Three Top Mountain, to name a few. We are very lucky that the Nature Conservancy has worked to preserve thousands of acres, including many of our peaks. Access to the famed Blue Ridge Parkway is just five miles away.

If you really need to stay connected to work, email, or just want to be able to surf the web on the deck overlooking the river, we offer a wireless broadband internet connection. Just bring your laptop and connect! Also, our 1080p HDTV has additional HDMI or AV hookups for your video gaming system. If you can't find something on cable, play your DVDs or Blue-rays or stream something from our Netflix service.

Please note, due to my daughters' allergies, pets are not allow under any circumstances. Also, a 4WD vehicle is recommended in the winter if there is snow or ice on the ground.
