About A Frame of Mind - New Listing on the New River
- Southern Ashe County
- Tiny-home living
- Sleeps 4
Tiny home living is all the rage! Try it for yourself at the riverfront A Frame of Mind in Southern Ashe County! This traditional A-Frame cabin sleeps 4 with one bathroom. On the main floor, the architecture is defined by beamed sloping wood-clad walls for a mountain feel in the vaulted living room. The kitchen is, as Goldilocks said, "just the right size" for preparing the meals you'll eat at home, since you'll likely want to try one of our area's fun restaurants while exploring our beautiful area. If you like craft beer, check out Boondocks and our latest restaurant, New River Brewing. (Many of our restaurants offer music on the weekends, and Boondocks has several game nights throughout the year on weekdays - music trivia and beats bingo are two of their offerings. Even the wine store offers music while you sip one of their specialty wines or do a tasting.)
On the main floor bedroom you'll enjoy a good night's rest on a comfy full bed. Upstairs in the loft, via a spiral staircase, are two twin beds. There's a full bathroom with a shower on the main floor shared by all.
If you are coming with extended family or two couples, consider renting both the A Frame of Mind and the Stonewood on the New across the road. That way everyone gets their space, but gets to enjoy the river and beautiful surroundings together.
The level riverfront yard is a dream - read a book and take a nap in the hammock, or dip your feet in the cool mountain waters of the South Fork of the New River. Go fishing, or ride your inner tube or kayak. Catch some sun as you lounge on deck or spread a blanket on the yard. Enjoy an al fresco dinner at the picnic table. After dinner, how about S'mores at the firepit? Your kids and your dog will love this idyllic spot. If you want to watch a little TV, your options include YouTube TV and Netflix.
This is a place to relax and play, as well as a great base to explore the Coolest Corner of North Carolina.
Located in Southern Ashe County, from this cabin you can access all that our northeast NC mountains ("the Coolest Corner") has to offer. In 20 minutes you can be in West Jefferson and all the shops, restaurants, our breweries and galleries, movie theaters and festivals our town offers throughout the year. It's the same distance to Mt. Jefferson, which offers one of the most amazing views - and you can drive to the top to absorb the magnificent vista. There's also hiking trails and ranger-led hikes and activities.
From the cabin you are only 30 minutes from Boone and just a bit more to Blowing Rock and all the interesting things on offer in these two towns. The Blue Ridge Parkway access points are only ten minutes away, so plan a drive north to Glendale Springs see the frescoes at the chapel there. Stop in for lunch and shop at the Greenhouse Crafts and the Northwest Trading Post (both closed for the winter). Head farther north to Doughton Park and the Brinegar cabin (often with an interpretive ranger on duty to tell you about life for the family here at the turn of the century from the 1800s to 1900s). Or head south to the Moses Cone Park, with hiking trails, picnic areas and a beautiful crafts shop. Either way you go, you'll delight in the long-range layered views along the way.
This cabin is pet-friendly, with a $50/per pet non-refundable deposit.

Recent Reviews About This Property
"The house was very cute, well stocked and had a nice gated deck so our dogs could go outside without the fear of them running away. Everything was spotless. My only complaint was that the master bed was very worn and slept more like a hammock than a mattress as it sunk towards the center at a pretty steep angle once you sat on it. I’m not sure if it was the mattress or the box springs that was the culprit as the mattress itself was not lumpy..just extremely saggy. Everything else though was great!"
Response from StayBlueRidge:We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! We will let the owner know it might be time to upgrade the bed. Thank you for choosing Stay Blue Ridge and we hope to see you again soon!
"This house was perfect for a weekend get away. The kitchen has everything you need. The latched gate on the porch is perfect for pets. Listening to the river at night by the fire pit was so peaceful. "
"LOL, our trip started for 10.5 hours of driving IN the rain to arrive later than anticipated. When we pulled in, we were shocked to find a car in the driveway. The property is so unique and "just perfect" that we were like...this has to be the place?!@?! The owner was there. Well, now some people might be like...well that was weird. It was an easy mix up of dates and the owner is terrific! We exchange emails now and her daughter lives less than an hour from our home in FL!! So, we have been keeping in touch. What a way to make a new budding friendship. For those who LOVE camping but are "too old" to crawl into a tent and would love to have a real bathroom. THIS IS THE PERFECT place. The cabin is just darling and extremely functional. It's not ridiculously fancy that you are afraid to sit down -- it is real, it is fun, and just perfect. We brought along a small grill and cooked most of our meals outside. There is an adorable fire pit that we utilized even in the rain! It rained a lot while we were there. My husband and I are outdoorsy folks but simple. We have high stress jobs and the cabin allowed us the get away we needed. We easily drove to many dog friendly parks and activities. People are friendly and helpful. GPS-Nav systems get a little confused from time to time in the mountains, but that was fantastic as well. We are looking forward to revisiting when free time allows."
"Very nice. The guys could put their kayaks in right from the bank and go downstream fishing. It was secluded and the cabin was adorable."
"We had a great time with our 2 boys and our dog. This it a small place. But very clean. The river is right in the back of the house. There is a bridge my husband and boys went into the river with tubes and came right back to the house, about a 20 min ride. We later took kyaks from the bridge by the Fleetwood post office, right back to the the back yard. It was about a 3 hour trip! It was wonderful! There is a small A/c in the loft and in the bedroom, but not the rest of the house. So it was a bit warmer than I'd like. But it was still great. Would love it if they added another AC unit. Keep in mind it's a small place with an RV sized bathroom, but what more is needed for a little get away trip! Loved this place! Beautiful also the bed in the master bedroom is a full, Wich is a bit smaller than what my husband and I are used to. My issue was that it was so soft we were rolling on top of one another lol so people with back issues may have a problem with this! But the place was very clean and nice soft sheets and blankets, great internet, Netflix etc. But no basic TV cable."
"Lovely A-frame on a large lot in front of river. We brought our own tubes and went tubing almost every day. Fun to tube right up to your property. Small and cozy for a family of 4 (including two teenagers). Did several gorgeous hikes nearby. A/c in each bedroom area but really didn’t need it. House was well-supplied and thoughtfully arranged. While it was in the mid-90s in most areas, the mountains stayed in the mid-8os during the day and mid-60s at night. No biting insects, which was wonderful. West Jefferson and Boone are cute towns. Would have loved to spend time in the hammock pictured but it was not up. We enjoyed ourselves!"
"House is adorable, well stocked, comfortable, very clean, and in a really pretty setting right along the New River. The owner clearly thought of everything one might need. We spent most of our time sitting on the deck or in the yard listening to the river. River is ideal for kayaking and tubing. "
"My husband and I spent a wonderful and peaceful long weekend at “A Frame of Mind”. The location was so relaxing!! You could hear the river right off the back deck! The property is also very open and easy to move about outside. Inside the cabin, the small space was used very well with a lot of innovative touches. The bathroom is a small, but we managed fine. We will definitely be back!!"
