We had a great stay! Loved the cabin. It is so quiet we heard the rain hit the leaves.Just what I needed to relax. Cabin us close to many great restaurants. Put your vehicle in 2nd gear to get up the driveway and you will have no problem, my 16 year old did great. Hike to river is moderate level and worth it when you get there.

Very nice cabin,we hope to come back at some point. This year for Thanksgiving it was just my immediate family of 4 on our annual mountain trip, so we switched to Above the River cabin and were very pleased. It was perfect size, the downstairs rec room was added space we didn't need, but we enjoyed the air hockey. Especially loved the short hike to the river and the walk along the river road. beautiful setting, felt like we were the only ones there most of the time. Enjoyed the fire pit outside and the gas fire inside. Kitchen had just about everything we needed to cook our Thanksgiving meal and we were certainly able to improvise with what was available. Would suggest additional spoons (teaspoons, seemed to be short spoons in the silverware set.) and some measuring cups, but again we could improvise. House very comfortable and well located, enjoyed hike at New River park and a coffee in West Jefferson. Was really our first real vacation/trip since Covid hit and we felt very relaxed. Thank you.

Nice place, nice deck. Bring river towels, they dont provide them. If you're expecting a river view,theres not one but the short walk is worth it. Look out for poison ivy.

This is the perfect place to unwind.

Our family of 5 stayed in this wonderfully appointed cabin (full of so many amenities) and had an incredible time! The short hike down to the river was a great little adventure. There is so much to do both in the cabin and outside in the surrounding area that we are looking forward to coming back soon!
Only comment is the throw rugs needed to be cleaned, everthing else was great !

We enjoyed our vacation very much! We had contact with nature, we meditated daily by the river, the cabin was cosy and we had exploring trips to downtown West Jefferson, WJ Park, Linville Falls, Beach Mountain and Banner Elk as well as Boone. We love the High Country NC area. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

We stayed here for 3 nights and the house was exactly as described. The home was clean and everything was just as pictured and advertised. The cable TV was clear and the internet was fast. My speed test obtained speeds around 80mb. There was plenty of room for 8 people without feeling cramped. The hot tub was on the small size. There is one TV on the main floor that has HDMI but the one in the basement is an old tube TV and has no HDMI inputs.

Wonderful time in the North Carolina mountains!

Great place. The only complaint was the fireplace would not work, Still had a great time.
- Charles M from Pensacola, FL, Posted: 04/21/2021
We enjoyed our stay tremendously. This cabin was very clean and well-maintained. There is a good trail down to the river that was easy to walk. There are plenty of places to shop for food in the area that are close, but not too close. We saw small deer every day from the kitchen window. It was very peaceful. The driveway is a little steep and I had a little difficulty getting out when the ground was wet, but that won’t keep me from returning again.

We loved the location and features of this cabin. Gorgeous river, wonderful hot tub and game room, well appointed kitchen, very convenient to stores and restaurants yet private. Wonderful cabin for dogs and children to enjoy and spread out. I think it needs to be pointed out to future guests that the master is actually an open loft with no privacy. Also the upstairs shower has very low pressure and limited hot water and could hopefully be fixed.

The cabin was beautiful, spacious and clean, had everything you might need. Beds were confortable and provides lots of blankets and pillows. Breath taking views and exceptional location for forest and mountain lovers and total get away. Very close to Walmart, cvs, Wendy's. Friendly staff and very approachable and kind.

This is an amazing cabin. It has lots of room and privacy. If it had the river view , it would be perfect. We were a little freaked out the main floor and basement didn't have blinds. That would have been nice at night.
- Robin H from Liberty, NC, Posted: 04/21/2021
This place is wonderful nice view and love the river close to the cabin. Very clean and enjoyed the hot tub. Really enjoyed our stay there to relax..

We rented the cabin with several other couples for a valentine's weekend getaway. Great spot near a lovely town with great accommodations. We were all pleasantly surprised! Very few complaints: There was a lot of trash in the woods from previous guests (we cleaned it up); The pool table is a bit lackluster, but otherwise everything is great!
- christy e from Concord, NC, Posted: 04/21/2021
We found the cabin to be clean, comfortable and well stocked. Our kids loved the game room, hot tub and shopping/dining in West Jefferson! We would definitely recommend Above the River!
- Marcus V from Fuquay varina, NC, Posted: 04/21/2021
The overall condition of the u it was very nice. Layout was cozy for lounging and the views and easy walk to the river made it a great location for us. Only thing that I would change is the water in the shower upstairs got warm but not really hot but this was a minor issue
- Robert W from Knoxville, TN, Posted: 04/21/2021
We really enjoyed the cabin. The cabin was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. We used the hot tub several times a day with the kids. We also walked to the river several times to fish. Enjoyed s'mores by the fire at night. Would recommend trip into West Jefferson. Great town with lots of shopping and restaurants. Overall had a great trip and would recommend this cabin to anyone looking to get away and relax.

Beautiful, well maintained and clean house in the woods. Had everything we needed except for a lighter for the grill. The river front area is nice and shady, but it really needs a way to get into the water - steep muddy bank made it impossible. Overall a quiet and lovely location - no river view from the house.
- Steven F from Leesburg, FL, Posted: 04/21/2021
Everything was really great. The location, the cabin and the weather. Short drive to a supermarket that had more to offer than most markets and the food in downtown West Jefferson at Boondock's Brewery was great. We will definitely do it again !
- Barbara P from CARY, NC, Posted: 04/21/2021
The cabin was VERY nice. The only problem we had was that the grill only lit on one of the back burners, which made it impossible to use. Needs some light bulbs and batteries for remotes. Otherwise, GREAT!
- Bruce L from Charlotte, NC, Posted: 04/21/2021
Peaceful cabin near the New River. Well appointed and comfortable. Just a quick hike down to the river. 5 quick miles to the grocery store and West Jefferson.

The property description was accurate. Our grandsons loved the basement game room but they were too young to do much playing in the river since it was too swift. The management office was gracious. The note on the door says the key is beside the door. The key is actually on a post across from the door. The house was clean, the kitchen was well stocked and the fire pit was great. I would recommend Above The River.

My entire family was forced to leave our home due to Hurricane Florence. We couldn’t stay at a hotel because we had to many people and our pet with us. I went online and found this wonderful cabin in West Jefferson. From start to finish we was treated like family. The cabin was amazing. The views were amazing as well. Cable, WiFi, games for the kids, hot tub. We almost forgot about the hurricane it was so nice.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We found the cabin to be comfortable and clean. It was only a short drive to West Jefferson and the Blue Ridge Parkway for the leaves. We will be back again.

The vacation house was nice but have a couple of disappointments. Games missing pieces, hockey table's cord was cut, light bulbs out or flicking, driveway is a pain, no master bedroom it was open to the below living room and kitchen. The house was clean and neatly labeled. Since the house does not have trash collection we had to take it. So with a fully loaded car my wife had to ride with with the trash in the passenger seat. There was no location given on where to take the trash so I ended traveling a whole town over to find a dumpster. The driveway is very steep, very. it needs to be paved or at least packed. The loose gravel caused us to get get suck twice when trying to leave. To make a place for my mother to join us at the firepit I had to dig out a level spot, the whole thing was on the side of a hill. The house is nice but just needs some finishing touches and fixes.

We really enjoyed our short getaway. It was relaxing and peaceful. The house was very clean and super nice and it had everything we needed! Property management were very nice and helpful. Hope to visit again soon!!
- Heather C from Durham, NC, Posted: 04/21/2021
This cabin was very nice and we got a great deal on it. It was very spacious and fit our needs perfectly. It was clean. It was kind of far away from everything, but there was an awesome view that made up for it right on the river. I would stay there again for sure!!
- Hope B from Largo, FL, Posted: 04/21/2021
everything was very nice I will say one of the fans in the 1ST bedroom is out of balance and had a death wobble when i gets up to speed ..and a loose kitchen faucet knob in the kitchen..but over all beautiful home ..close to Boone and the ski resorts
- Christy M from Louisburg, NC, Posted: 04/21/2021
Our family really enjoyed our extended weekend. The weather was very unusual for January in the mountains. It actually rained instead of snowing. Luckily there were enough things to do at the cabin to keep the kids entertained. Our only wish was that the hot tub would have been on a covered porch. We still enjoyed it, just used our golf umbrellas. We look forward to going back!
- Patricia C from Sylvester, GA, Posted: 04/21/2021
This is a wonderful house and we found it suited our needs perfectly with three couples and two children. It was very clean and had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again.
- Sandra B from MYRTLE BEACH, SC, Posted: 04/21/2021
Everything went great. The cabin was spacious and private and there was a short trail down to the river. We enjoyed hiking and local trips. We taught my grandkids about identifying tracks at the river, large raccoon and deer tracks. We could see the trout in the river. We had a great, fun, and peaceful family vacation. Would stay there again.
- Haley J from Wilmington, NC, Posted: 04/21/2021
We arrived to the cabin on a Friday evening and were immediately thrilled for the weekend to come! All the furniture was comfortable, cabin was clean, and the views were beautiful! We had a couple little hiccups along the way, the fridge wasn't cooling like it should, but we contacted the management company and they had someone out quickly and were so pleasant to deal with! The game room downstairs was definitely my favorite! So nice to hang out down there in the evenings, playing cards, listening to music with the view of the woods out the windows. All around wonderful stay! Would recommend!
- Shannon L from Raleigh, NC, Posted: 04/21/2021
The property was as described. As always we would have loved to have stayed longer. We were visiting to look for our own slice of heaven. The staff was very helpful with all of our rental and realtor needs.
- Bryan C from Maiden, NC, Posted: 04/21/2021
very clean and lots of room. Fun for everyone. Only problem was the trail down to the river had not been cut back and there was poison oak everywhere. Needs landscaping on the trail!!
Would visit again....hopefully soon.

Totally enjoyed our brief stay. The cabin was spacious & well kept. All the accessories we needed, except for a hair dryer. Bad hair for a couple days!
