BOOK NOW FOR SUMMER! Panoramic Mtn Views, Foosball & Flat Screen

Description

West Jefferson, NC - A short-5 minute drive will take you to downtown restaurants, breweries, galleries, the Cheese Factory, antique malls, Jefferson State Park, and Frosty’s Choose and Cut. This cabin is perfect for a couple or a small family or a girlfriends’ weekend. The cabin is 28 miles to Tweetsie Railroad, 25 miles to Appalachian State University, and 34 miles to the Grayson Highlands (please note all distances are approximate and travel times will vary). For some winter fun, head to one of our three most popular ski resorts: Appalachian Ski Mtn, Sugar Mtn, or Beech Mtn.

The spacious master on main has a queen bed with a Temper-Pedic medium-firm mattress and high-end linens. The bathroom across the hall has a step-in shower, double sinks, and a *whirlpool soaking tub.

On the main floor there is a kitchen fully stocked with everything needed for the chef in the family to cook meals. Coffee lovers will appreciate having a drip coffee maker, a French press, or a Keurig to choose from. The kitchen opens up to the dining space and living room. There is also a propane gas grill on the deck for additional cooking options.

The living room has a beautiful view of the mountains and a gas fireplace for heat and ambiance during the cold months. There is a flat screen TV in this room with basic cable and a ROKU stick for you to access your streaming accounts. Board games, puzzles, and books are available to keep the kids occupied if there is a rainy, stay-in-place kind of day. WiFi speed is at 100mbps for those that need to work or just wish to stream movies.

The main deck, outfitted with plenty of rocking chairs, is the perfect place to enjoy coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at night while watching the sunrise or sunset. You may have sightings of deer or wild turkeys and quail.

Two additional bedrooms are upstairs, as well as a shared bathroom. One room has a queen bed and the most beautiful view of the valley below and the mountain range beyond it. The second bedroom has two twin beds, perfect for children.

The lower level includes a media room with a large flat-screen tv and surround sound. This TV also has a ROKU stick, but the cabin is stocked with many DVDs from which to choose as well. The 2nd side of the basement has been recently finished out to include more heated square footage and seating space. It has a foosball table and a half bath. If you need to do laundry while staying, there is a washer and dryer located on this floor as well.

The cabin is decorated with artwork by local artists, and seasonal décor changes throughout the year. You will find it stocked with a starter supply of toilet paper, detergents, toiletries, and coffee pods. An Ingles grocery store is located only five minutes away for groceries.

Come and relax at Absolute High. You will be glad you did!

Spontaneous trip

Stayed 2 days ending April 2024

My husband and I rented this home on a whim to just get away and rest. This home provided just want we needed to relax. Unfortunately the weather spoiled our ability to sit on the deck and enjoy the lovely view in the comfy rockers.The gas fireplace was great. Home was very convenient to downtown West Jefferson. We went midweek and found many of the stores and downtown restaurants were closed for various reasons. I believe winter and mid week is a time for renovation and closures for many.But we were fine to cook at the house. But if shopping or eating out is a priority for the renter I would suggest going on the weekend.

Manager Responded on 4/5/2024

Thank you for leaving a review of your recent stay at Absolute High. The home does offer great views when the weather cooperates but the inside is warm and cozy. Stores and restaurants in downtown West Jefferson do have days that they are closed during the week. We do hope you will stay with us again.

Absolute High Was Absolutely Perfect!

Anonymous from Charlotte, NC
Stayed 4 days ending November 2021

We're frequent renters of mountain houses and this was one of the best cabins we've ever stayed in. Not only are the views terrific, but the owners have thought of everything to make guests feel comfortable and at home. We spent Thanksgiving weekend at this cabin and it's incredibly well-stocked - it had everything we needed to do lots of cooking in the kitchen! The cabin is cozy and it was spotlessly clean. Both of the TVs were great sizes and the Rokus connected to both were a huge plus for streaming, not to mention the convenience of having cable too. All of the furniture was very comfortable and we loved the big porches with rocking chairs. The mountain views from this house and the neighboring street are some of the best views we've seen in the High Country. The management company was also great and made our stay easy. We are definitely planning to rent this cabin again!

Manager Responded on 12/2/2021

Amazing Views!

Roberta C. from Wake Forest, NC, Unknown
Stayed 5 days ending February 2022

Very clean impressive cabin with all the creature comforts of home. Comfy beds, lots of extra blankets, pillows and all the kitchen supplies you will need.

Main bedroom is on first floor, upstairs is 2 more bedrooms and downstairs in basement has den, laundry and fooseball. My 7 yo granddaughter loved that!

The only negatives is the fridge could use updating as it froze our milk and food, and the water pressure in shower is very low. Other than that it was perfect. The gas fireplace was easy to turn on with a switch and worked great. The homey touches were appreciated.

Manager Responded on 2/17/2022

We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Absolute Hight. We will be addressing the issues with the fridge and shower pressure. We look forward to having you stay with us again.

Stellar views!

Mark K. from Chapel Hill, NC, US
Stayed 4 days ending April 2022

Lovely cabin with gorgeous views while still surprising close to West Jefferson. Well outfitted place. Maybe my only minor critique is that the basement media room relies on heating and cooling to come from upstairs, so in early April at night it was pretty cool down there. Otherwise, it was perfect.

Manager Responded on 4/25/2022

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Absolute High. The lower level is heated and cooled. We look forward to having you stay with us again.

Absolute High was about as perfect a cabin as I have ever rented! The location is wonderful ~~easy access to areas we like to visit. The furnishings are beautiful & comfortable!

A breath of fresh air literally! This home was perfect for our family - 2 adults, 2 small kids and 1 fur baby. The view here is absolutely amazing! The house is decorated very nicely, was cozy, clean, and just a great stay! We were doing things around the Boone/Blowing Rock area, but fell in love also with West Jefferson. The drive to Boone/Blowing Rock took a little longer because of road construction, but normally wouldn't be a bad drive at all! A great experience and we would definitely stay here again!

The accommodations were comfortable and functional. The view was breathtaking. Definitely worth the visit! Driveway is a little tricky and washed on the upper end. Individuals with limited mobility will be limited to main floor as steps to lower and upper levels are narrow and slick. Walk in shower and beautiful deck on main level.

Cozy Christmas stay.

Excellent views from a cozy cabin. Good for our family of five adults. Met our expectations and then some. It was decorated for the Christmas season with lights on the railings and little touches inside. Its year round colors are red and green so it was perfect. Good wifi. So close to town it was easy to go in for a meal or shopping.

We had trouble with the keypad lock when we arrived but had good service on getting it fixed.

Our only disappointment—Slightly uncomfortable mattresses. Could use better mattress pads perhaps.

We absolutely LOVED our weekend at this cozy cabin. It was clean, excellent condition and the decor was perfect for a cozy getaway. As it was just the two of us, we only used the main floor but would be a great cabin to bring our 3 teens as there are two more bedrooms and a nice finished basement/media room which they would love. We ate all but one meal in and the kitchen was well equipped for my personal 'hubby' chef. We had no problem finding the cabin, roads are well-marked as are the directions from the property company. We hiked nearby Mt Jefferson and spent the afternoon having lunch and exploring downtown West Jefferson. I only wish we were staying through Sunday so we could have hunkered down in front of the fireplace (which worked perfectly) and enjoyed the several inches of snow we awoke to on Sunday morning. A truck came through in the morning so we were able to follow the tracks down the mountain in our all wheel drive. To address a prior reviewer, we had no issue with the driveway either - in perfect shape. Lastly the property company was wonderful, even checking on Sunday to make sure we got out ok. Will definitely rent this home again... we love the whole area.

Too steep for safety during an ice storm but overall BEAUTIFUL

Laura K. from DALLAS, GA, US

We ended up staying only one night due to freezing rain that occurred during the night. We made it down the mountain to ski the next morning but did not dare head back up to stay the second night. The view was amazing, the cabin was cute and the staff answered a call a night to help light the gas logs.

There are a few things like kitchen utensils that were not there. i brought some things from home. Overall we love the cabin. It is only 5 minutes downhill to West Jefferson. We love the view from the porch and the view when walking. The only problem when walking is back uphill. It really gives good exercise. We have the cabin again in August and can't wait to come back.

The view

Andrew L. from Abingdon, VA, US
Stayed 2 days ending March 2021

We had a blast at Absolute High Cabin. The view is amazing and the town of West Jefferson is great. Breweries and great stores and downtown is worth walking around and exploring. We did expect a real hot tub as described in VRBO but there was just a big bath with jets that I guess they call a hot tub. But if you rent cabins like we do a hot tub is an actual hot tub with hot water around 103 to 110 degrees out on the porch so you can enjoy the view while in a hot bath. It was my wife’s birthday and she had an amazing weekend but a hot tub would have made it perfect.

Manager Responded on 3/25/2021

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your recent stay at Absolute High. This home does not offer a hot tub and there is even a disclaimer that states the home offers an indoor jacuzzi tub and not an outdoor hot tub. We encourage all of our guests to call and confirm that the rental of their choosing offers all the amenities that you are looking for.

We rented this house as we like the area that allows us to be close to West Jefferson and not far from Boone. This house was in a quiet location and had a great view from the spacious deck overlooking the mountains. We drove to Whitetop which was a short trip, to ride on the Virginia Creeper Trail and staying at this house worked perfect for including the trail ride on this trip.

Absolute High is one of our favorite cabins. Have a seat in one of the deck rocking chairs and relish in the views of surrounding mountains. This cabin offers lots of sleeping options, with a roomy and functional kitchen and comfy sofas. Carolina Mountain Properties does a great job in preparing a clean and welcoming home away from home. We highly recommend Absolute High for couples or larger groups and you get to bring your four-legged friends too thanks to the pet-friendly accommodations. Absolute High will not disappoint.

Mornings on the porch were the highlight!! Being able to bring our 13 year old dog was the best-he loved the porch too. We certainly hope to be back!!

What a view

Renee J. from Apex, NC
Stayed 3 days ending July 2017

It was great birthday trip! My husband turned 65 and he loves the mountains. We have never been to West Jefferson, but have fallen in love! The cabin itself was spotless. The accomodations and appliances were great. The road was paved up to the cabin and easy to find. Close to grocery store and downtown area. By far the best thing about this cabin is the view!!! Simply amazing and quiet. We spent most of our time rocking on the deck and gazing. Breakfast and coffee every morning outside. The management company provided excellent customer service and the process itself was so smooth. We will definitely return to West Jefferson and Absolute High! I can't say enough about the view! Thanks for a memorable birthday experience and rejuvenation.

Disappointed

Anonymous from Holly Springs, NC
Stayed 2 days ending July 2017

The cabin was adorable, and the view was great. Though some pretty important things were missing. There was no water pressure, the water was filled with dirt and grit, the shower curtain was mildewed, spiderwebs in the upstairs bedroom, uncomfortable furniture, and a terrible old grill that we felt like was about to fall apart. It was cozy, but not a place I would come back to.

Manager Responded on 8/2/2017

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of Absolute High. We wish you had contacted us during your stay the issue with the water could have easily been resolved by replacing a water filter which has been done. We also could have cleaned and assessed the grill. We hope you will come back to our area and choose another cabin from our listings.

A little piece heaven!!

Wonderful Christmas Getaway

Timothy R. from Winston Salem, NC
Stayed 4 days ending December 2017

This is my second time renting this cabin for Christmas. The cabin is well maintained and has everything needed. I brought my Christmas decorations with me as they don't really decorate this cabin. It was a cozy Christmas cabin with some snowfall and my family totally enjoyed being there. We sat by the fire enjoying the scenery out the large windows and it felt like home for the holidays.

New Year's getaway

christina c. from
Stayed 4 days ending January 2018

The cabin inside was clean and comfortable but quite drafty by doors and windows. Temperature was 0 degrees outside. Unable to use the TV room or foosball in the basement due to the cold. View was outstanding and it snowed New Year's Eve so it looked like a winter wonderland.

Manager Responded on 1/10/2018

Thank you for leaving a review of your stay at Absolute High. We did experience some extreme cold temperatures during your stay. We will be checking on the drafts you mentioned and downstairs. We hope you will stay with us again.

great house and location

Anonymous from Wake forest, NC
Stayed 3 days ending December 2017

My family of 4 had a wonderful time at this cabin right after Christmas. It was warm, clean, and inviting. The location was perfect - close to hiking and 5 minutes from groceries and town. The downside to us was that the "hot tub" was not actually a hot tub but a jetted bathtub. Our family was really looking forward to a family soak in a hot tub, but this was not possible with the set up. All in all it was a great set up for a few days away.

Manager Responded on 1/2/2018

We are delighted to hear that you found Absolute High to be warm, clean and inviting. The cabin is just minutes from town and hiking. We do not advertise the cabin as having an outdoor hot tub. There is a disclaimer in the description. We hate that you were disappointed in this. Next time, please call us before booking to confirm that a property does have an outdoor hottub.

The house was beautiful and the view was in beatable. Our two dogs felt at home and comfortable immediately. I think they enjoyed it even more than we did! Great location for hiking the parks and close to Boone, which turned out to be a super fun little town! We can’t wait to come back!

Amazing Home for a Vaca

Annette K. from New London, NH, us
Stayed 5 days ending July 2018

From the moment we drove up, this home was so welcoming. It beckoned relaxation. We cooked our meals there, and experienced our excursions around being at home. Loved the grill on the deck, and was well used:) Maybe, it is just me, and the fact that we have never rented a home for a vaca before. But, this home is truly special. THe views are breathtaking and spectacular. We got to watch storms roll in, and evaporation re-uptake into the clouds, and fire again! The boys loved it! We will be back!!!

Manager Responded on 7/30/2018

Thank you for leaving a review of Absolute High. This is a beautiful home with long range mountains yet just minutes from West Jefferson and a short drive to Boone. We look forward to having you stay with us in the future!

Absolute High Review

Gena B. from Raleigh, NC
Stayed 2 days ending October 2018

The experience was wonderful. The home is beautiful and well equipped. The only note I would change is that the home is at least a 40 minute drive Boone. It was expressed by more than 3 people when asking how far the drive is from Boone that is was 20 minutes. It was not and we had to make many trips back and forth. So that was very frustrating.

Manager Responded on 10/24/2018

Thank you for leaving a review of your recent stay at Absolute High. Absolute High is approximately 35 minutes to Boone. We do look forward to having you stay with us again in a home closer to Boone.

Mountain High

It was a very nice cabin and we enjoyed our stay very much. Location had good points and if you like to walk your dog hard points. The walk was down hill and then back up the step hill. Overall we were very pleased.

Debra F. from Oviedo, Florida
Stayed 7 days ending June 2019

Our stay at Absoulte High was wonderful. Our family made so many amazing memories there. The cabin was comfortable and clean. My kids enjoyed the game table and TV down stairs and it was nice they had somewhere to watch TV without hearing cartoons. The Keurig didn't work but they had a different coffee machine. The only thing I wished and needed when cooking was slotted spoons as the wooden one they had just didn't work well and some food storage containers would have been nice as we cooked everyday. We would love to stay in this cabin again. This was our 2nd time renting through Carolina Mt Properties and we will never use a different rental for our mountain vacations. We loved sitting outside watching the deer, bunnies, fireflies and chilly temperatures for June.

We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Absolute High. We will pass your suggestions onto the owner regarding the kitchen supplies. We look forward to having you stay with us again.

Charming little place

Anonymous from Mooresville, NC
Stayed 2 days ending September 2015

The cabin was nice. Clean, organized and comfortable (for the most part). What was uncomfortable was the beds. Unfortunately, they were too soft and we all woke up a little groggy. Beds could be better. Only one bed (twin/upstairs) was firm and comfortable.

The view was gorgeous but hidden due to heavy fog and rain that happened during our stay. We did enjoy the little time we had when there was a break in the rain.

Overall, it was a nice and comfortable cabin with a gorgeous view (when its not raining & dense with fog). It would be superb if the beds were a little firmer.

Beautiful sunset from up the road

Absolutely loved our cabin up high. Close to West Jefferson where we spent Halloween watching Trick or Treaters. Went to Cheese Factory which I highly recommend. Close to Boone which I recommend Stick Boy Bakery for coffee and pastry. The staff at Carolina Mountain Properties were very helpful and friendly. This is our 5th year going and hopefully next year will come soon. Can't wait to go back. Gods Country. We love love it!!

Beautiful location, but not such a great sleep

Mary P. from Winston Salem, NC
Stayed 2 days ending September 2015

The house is lovely, the location is perfect, and the view could not be better. However two things really detracts from the rating. First, the bed is in very poor condition. It is so soft, that my husband's shoulders fell asleep each night. When you go somewhere like this most people are going to relax and bed quality makes the difference on coming back. It's too bad because we have been looking for a repeat weekend rental - but the bed is a deal breaker.
The other issue is for those of you with children. The dishwasher is not screwed down and tips over - we managed but wouldn't want a toddler there.
Would love to come back - once the owner invests in a decent bed!!

This is a great cabin in a perfect location. The decor is gorgeous with red being the dominant color. Red is my favorite color. Breathtaking quilts enhance the beauty. Very well furnished with the best of everything. Amazing theater room downstairs with first class accommodations. The views from upper and lower decks will not disappoint. It seems as though you can see for miles and miles. Binoculars are even there if you desire a closer look. The cabin was spotless. Great job to the housekeeper. Thank you CMP, Jennifer, and the Morrison family for a perfect get away once again.

We have been renting through VRBO for many years, usually multiple times a year, and this is by far the most well kept and cleanest rental we've ever been lucky enough to stay in. The views from the porch, family room and master bedroom were spectacular--just as pictured--actually, even better. It was the perfect place to ring in 2016 and we will definitely be back. Carolina Mountain Properties was great and easy to work with and the whole process was a breeze from start to finish.

Home Away from Home!

Kristy H. from LAGRANGE, NC
Stayed 3 days ending May 2016

We love this little cabin! Try to go there every year since we discovered it I think 5-6 years ago. The location is great - feels secluded but is very close to town. The cabin is always clean and well appointed and is tastefully decorated. They have a Keurig now so take your k-cups! We enjoy relaxing on the porch and taking in the view of the valley. TV and internet are great. Probably not a great place to take small children (no "back" yard and the "view side" is steep & rugged.) The only, and I mean the only, negative is the mattress on the bed in the first floor bedroom. I really wish they would invest in a quality mattress. I'd gladly pay a few more dollars a night to help cover the cost! Lovely cabin though! You won't regret choosing it (unless perhaps you have a bad back).

The perfect Getaway
