Size doesn't matter when you have your own garden spot directly on the New River. A Frame of Mind is a traditional A-frame cabin with a beamed vaulted living room, providing the cozy cabin atmosphere you've been dreaming of. The open floor plan on the main level includes a living room with TV, a small but well-equipped kitchen, a bedroom with a full bed and a full bath. For additional sleeping accommodations, take the spiral staircase to the loft, where you'll find two twin beds.
When you come to the High Country, though, it's all about the great outdoors. A Frame of Mind has a park-like setting, with the lovely New River just steps from the front door. This peaceful and slow-moving river is scenic and safe for all ages. Enjoy the river from the deck, firepit area or hammock - or go on and walk right in! Take a swim, or try some fishing, canoeing, tubing or kayaking. Local outfitters will set you up with everything you need.
When you're ready for al fresco dining, choose from options on the deck or the picnic table. When you're ready to check out the local restaurants, you'll find several options in both West Jefferson and Boone. If you like craft beer, check out Boondocks and West Jefferson's latest addition, New River Brewing. Fine dining is available at Craft Bistro, and Home Slice is the place for pizza.
Your friends, kids and your dog will love this idyllic spot. If your party includes extended family or two couples, consider renting both the A Frame of Mind and the Stonewood cabin across the road.

Recent Reviews About This Property
"Great place on the river. Clean and serene"
"Great place, very cozy, river right in back is beautiful. Very clean and as described."
"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!!"
