Recent Reviews About This Property
"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."
"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 ! "
"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!"
"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."
"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. "
Response from StayBlueRidge:We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Above the River! We really appreciate your feedback. The owner is planning to put steps at the river area for the easier access, but due to unusually rainy spring and high level of the river, the plan to do so was delayed. This improvement will be done as soon as possible.
"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"
"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! "
"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."
"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!"
"Excellent stay "
"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.. "
"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. "
"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. "
"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!!"
"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!
Would visit again....hopefully soon."
"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!"
"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."
"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."
"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.
"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! "
"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 "
"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."
"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!!"
"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. "
Response from StayBlueRidge:We're very sorry to hear about this disappointment. It's a bit of a surprise after the first rave review as this is a new property to our rental program and a beautiful, well equipped one at that. Unfortunately Ashe County does not offer trash pick up service. There are local convenience centers located throughout the area and detailed instructions, along with closest address, map and operating hours are included in the property binder. There is a steep incline at the end of the driveway and we recommend you follow the instructions on how to navigate that section which are posted as well. Steep, gravel roads are very common in our mountainous area. We're always happy to discuss check out details or give recommendations at any point during your stay, please reach out to us so we can help. We wish these guests would have touched base so we could better assist them as well as remedy some of the other issues.
"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!! "
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thank you for your response. We are happy that you had a wonderful relaxing and peaceful vacation. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you soon!
