Beautiful cabin! It was cozy & well maintained. The hot tub was also a nice addition.

What a great escape into the high country. Stayed 10 days through Christmas and a really cold winter storm -28 a few nights and snow. Gas fire place kept it cozy and nice. Beds were very comfortable, the cabin organized and was clean. Thankfully affordable for a family these days. We have booked several local cabins with Stay Blue Ridge in 2022 trying to find property. We have had a wonderful experience every time. All the properties have been very nice, clean, affordable, most of all the staff is very accommodating. Thanks again look forward to coming back soon to such a awesome town.

We enjoyed staying at this cabin for the 2nd time & got to enjoy the hot tub this year! This relaxing cabin has all the amenities with such a beautiful view! Will definitely return!

App State of Mind was a wonderful place to stay, a true gem. The proximity to downtown West Jefferson and the Blue Ridge Parkway was perfect. We loved our stay, and we would rent again in a heartbeat if we are in the area. The staff at Stay Blue Ridge was great as well. We extended our stay twice, and they were extremely helpful in doing that.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the App State of Mind cabin in West Jefferson. Not only was the cabin a great place to stay, the area was just great. Lots to do and some great places to eat.

Reasonable price and lovely property. The road up to property is steep though. Nice and quiet with no close neighbors. Just relaxing and peaceful.

Beautiful property. Well kept. Peaceful. We loved everything about it. Our only regret is that we didn’t stay longer.

This was our first time in this area and we chose it mostly for the cabin which had room for our family of 6. To our pleasant surprise, we were situated in the perfect location to enjoy West Jefferson, the New River and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We loved exploring all the area had to offer and then coming back to our sweet cabin to sit in the hot tub and make s’mores. We made so many wonderful memories here and already can’t wait to come back!

What a beautiful home located in the mtns just 15 mins to Downtown West Jefferson. The place was big, clean , easy check in with exceptional communication. The views are amazing, hot tub we used in the evening which was easy to use and very clean. The house had all the amenities so we were able to cook our meals after our hikes and enjoy on the one of several chairs, swings , porches throughout the property. Thank you and we will most certainly be back! Lisa and Ray Jeanne and Grover

Quiet, private, and relaxing place to stay. Very well kept property. We really enjoyed the hot tub, corn hole, and fire pit. The cabin was extremely clean and very well stocked with daily necessities. The driveway is steep, but if my minivan can make it, anyone can.

Clean and spacious cabin with breathtaking views and plenty of amenities! Great hidden gem and hope to visit again soon!
- Julie , Posted: 03/15/2022
App State was great! The cabin was perfect for our family and had everything we needed. We loved that the place was kid and dog friendly. Grocery stores were a short drive away if we needed anything. We had a great stay and hope to visit again!
- Tiffany , Posted: 12/05/2021
Quiet and private, just what we needed. The home was very clean and stocked with everything you would need. Even though you are tucked in the mountain it's only a short 10 minutes to my favorite little town. Thank you for sharing your gem with us.
- Kristi , Posted: 08/19/2021
Cabin was very clean upon arrival and well maintained. Property is a little less than a mile up a gravel road and nicely tucked away in the mountain. It was very quiet and peaceful… nice place to sit on the porch in the morning and watch the deer pass through. The fire pit area was nice too and the kids loved playing cornhole in the driveway. They also loved having their own loft upstairs and playing the board games. The beds and furniture were very comfortable as well. Would stay here again.

My husband and I needed a little getaway. West Jefferson is our favorite place. The cabin provided just what we were looking for. It was private and we were able to take in the beauty of our surroundings and even take our dog, Liebe on nice walks. She love her stay also. We visited one of our favorite places, Ashe County Cheese! We brought back goodies for everyone. The cabin was very clean and did not disappoint. We enjoyed the hot tub and utilized the grill. My husband raved over the grill. He loves to cook on charcoal. He cooked the best t-bones. This cabin was centrally from all of our favorite places. We enjoyed our entire stay. If you get a chance, soak in the little town of West Jefferson. The Hillbilly Grill and Boondocks were amazing. We are back home now and can’t wait till our next visit. I give the location and cabin a five- star rating.

This was our second time renting this cabin and each time we stay if just gets better. Hope to make it back again next year. We have been coming to this area for over 15 years for vacation and love it. Every time we come to the area we always find something new we truly enjoy.
- Dixie , Posted: 07/28/2021
The inside was very clean and cozy throws felt soooo good for porch time. The back porch & hot tub cover were dusty (maybe from cornhole game??), but we were pleased with our stay. Steep road up from the highway, but my Nissan Sentra made it in low gear. Thanks for sharing your cabin!
- Kaitlyn , Posted: 04/23/2021
Wow...Not much more to say than that. This was a PERFECT cabin for our family! Everything was amazing. I MISS IT! Cabin was spotless, beds and couches were super comfy (love that four of the seats recline), internet had great connection, and there was the perfect amount of space for us to spread out a little, but still be together. We enjoyed using the fire pit to hang out, make s'mores, play games, and enjoy a glass (or two) of wine. The indoor fireplace was used A LOT (especially those first couple of days/nights when we had some snow flurries) and we occasionally fought over who got to sit on the end of the couch closest to it. The kitchen had absolutely everything I needed to cook and I was able to easily and comfortably make several meals. The view and walk along down the neighborhood road/river was beautiful and peaceful. We barely saw anyone driving in or out during our 4 night stay (so quiet). The strings lights off the loft and on the gazebo just made my teenage daughter's heart so happy (she loves those lights)! The area was gorgeous and we visited The Dan'l Boone Inn for dinner one night (a must visit for our family when staying anywhere nearby), stopped at Ashe County Cheese, enjoyed an escape room & apothecary at Great Southern Gothic (SO FUN!), enjoyed some hiking at the Mount Jefferson State Natural Area (the Mountain Ridge Trail is NO JOKE, but totally worth it!), saw some amazing views along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and stopped in at the New River State Park (Elk Shoals) for some river/water fun (just the toes...). We also just chilled a little - and we were ok with that! We had more we wanted to do/see, but "so much to do, so little time". If I absolutely HAD to find something wrong, it was that the "Dining Pass" mentioned in the welcome binder was not on the fridge so we didn't get to use that (which would have been nice), but that is literally me grasping for something to "complain" about. Trust me, you won't be disappointed if you stay here! :)

Went up for a long weekend. Great cabin get away and nice and quiet location. Definitely going back. Nice area on large front or back porch, and fire pit up the hill with plenty of seating. Large parking area for larger vehicles a plus, drive to the property is smaller, but it's the mountains.
- Randall B from High point, NC, Posted: 03/17/2021
We spent a great 6 days exploring the West Jefferson area and loved our time in the App state of mind cabin. Love the fire pit and all the amenities in the cabin. We will certainly be back.

This cabin was exactly what we were looking for. We purchased land in West Jefferson and needed a place to stay while we were closing and finalizing details. This place was actually cheaper than the Holiday Inn and had everything you could need to enjoy yourself. Fully stocked with all amenities othet than food. Its a great place and we wil be staying again!
The cabin was spotless and had pretty much all the basic household items you would need. The layout was also great for the 6 of us. Even the mattresses were very comfortable and the internet worked surprisingly well. Overall great experience and the cabin is super cozy and comfortable.
The only issues we had which stop it from being 5 stars in my opinion was more to do with some of the policies. First, although the house is amazingly well stocked, they only left like half a roll of toilet paper, with 6 people arriving late, we had some tp hunger games going on that first night/morning until we could get to the store. Secondly you have to haul your trash like 30min away. If you go into the town where the dump is everyday its probably not an issue. However we did not, so we ended up with a lot of garbage on checkout day which was a bit of a pain to go dump it and come back (we didn't all fit with our luggage and garbage) all while also trying to pack up and checkout by 11am.
Other than that we had a great time and would return, but would plan to bring some tp with us and manage our garbage dumping trips better.

The cabin was gorgeous and the location was beautiful, although a bit hard to get to if you are not use to mountain dirt roads. The sketchy part is only the last bit off the main road and up to the cabin.
We absolutely loved the firepit sitting area. It is very well placed on the top of the hill. You are able to see all the mountains surrounded the cabin in the distance. Usually the firepit is just on the same level ground as the house and surrounded by trees. Whoever desiged this layout knew what they were doing!
The cabin itself was better stocked with pots, pans, seasonings, and other daily necessities than we had expected. The house was very clean and fresh smelling. The cabin itself was small but had a great layout to accomidate 6 people. We abosolutely loved our stay and will keep this location in mind in the future!

This gem was a perfeft break for our family. We traveled with two boys under 10 and grandparents. The kids loved the bunk beds, riding the road up the mountain and all the left over snow! We were able to play more on the hill outside the cabin then anything else. All the tubing in the area was sold out and this property kept our crowd from being very dissapointed!
- Jason C from Little River, SC, Posted: 01/12/2021
We couldn't have been more pleased with this property, and the pictures don't do it justice! It felt totally secluded and super quiet, but not far off the highway. It was clean as a whistle, stocked with everything we could have needed and more, and super comfortable. The views are beautiful, with great long-range views (in the winter at least) from the fire pit area that aren't pictured. The gas fireplace was so warm we hardly even used the heat. We got snow while we were there (at least 7") and they even provided shovels and salt for the steps/drive. I will say that while we do not have a 4 wheel drive, we did get snow chains for the drive down the mountain. I'm not sure we would have been comfortable driving up to the cabin in the snow without a 4x4, but luckily we had no plans to leave so the chains were enough to drive down no problem. Can't wait to come back.

loved it. awsome view nice quiet gave us lots of family time

Overall a wonderful trip. There was a horrible problem with flies in the cabin. There were dozens of flies in the house. They kept coming in one of the upper windows. They were also all over the outside of the house near that window.

This is a great cabin with an excellent view. I would recommend it to anyone. Very private and peaceful. The property is well maintained and clean.The staff at Stay Blue Ridge was so helpful. They are very good at what they do. Thanks!
- Brian L from Morehead City, NC, Posted: 10/16/2020
House was clean and had everything you could need in case you forget anything. Close to most towns you want to visit in the mountians.
- Anonymous from SOUTHPORT, NC, Posted: 10/03/2020
Cute and very clean cabin with everything we needed, more than expected. Enjoyed sitting on the deck after a fun day exploring the area. Only negative was the long and curvey one-lane road to the cabin.
- Jolie M from MARSHALL, NC, Posted: 08/04/2020
We had a wonderful time at our vacation rental. It was peaceful and cozy. We all loved the property. I would also like to give praise to the wonderful lady that was cleaning our cabin. We arrived at the cabin at 4:14p and they sweet lady was there still cleaning. She apologized for taking so long to clean the cabin. From our understanding the cabin was in a rough state from the previous vacationers. Once she was done cleaning and we were able to go in the cabin it was very clean. She done a wonderful job.
The one issue to be aware of, though, if you have a low-lying car: the property is 1.5 miles off of the highway, on gravel mountain roads. We came in an SUV which was zero problem.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Everything about this property is in excellent condition. We never lacked for anything; all items seemed new or nearly new. Porches were super comfortable as were the common areas. The beds were amazing! Kitchen was very complete - and we used it every day since we planned on staying put. The layout of the entire cabin is very logical.

This was a great week of peace and relaxation in a beautiful setting.
- Melissa P from Greenville, NC, Posted: 07/08/2020
We loved the rental house! It was up the mountain, mostly away from other houses and people. It was very clean, nice/comfy furniture with room for all of us, very comfortable beds, a well appointed kitchen. Highly recommend this home - we loved our stay there.

So peaceful and relaxing!
