Upstairs you'll find two additional bedrooms, one with full size bed and sleeper sofa and second bunk bedroom, with two full size beds on the bottom and two twins on top. Both share a full size bath with walk in shower
The interior of the farmhouse offers unique touches and historic elements throughout. Relax with a cup of coffee in the morning on the spacious deck as you take in the sounds of the river nearby or dine al fresco and take in the views of the surrounding mountains.
Dunrovin Farm House offers the perfect river getaway and is located just outside of West Jefferson, yet is within the vicinity of Grayson Highlands State Park in Virginia, offering you plenty of opportunities to explore the beauty of the area. Area recreation opportunities include fishing, hiking, biking, canoeing, and tubing all minutes away. Attractions nearby include the Blue Ridge Parkway, Grandfather Mountain, Mount Jefferson State Park, New River State Park, Blowing Rock, the quaint downtown of West Jefferson and?of course, Tweetsie Railroad! Start the day hiking the Cascade Falls Trail on the nearby Blue Ridge Parkway. After your hike, go for a drive along the Parkway, enjoying the many scenic vistas that characterize America's most beautiful road. Sample the local goods and harvests at the Ashe County Farmers Market and explore the many Art Galleries and cafes in Downtown West Jefferson. Continue on to Blowing Rock and shop at the many unique shops in this quaint mountain town. Next on the agenda, journey to Grandfather Mountain and a harrowing?but awe-inspiring--walk on the Swinging Bridge and a visit to the natural animal habitat. If there's time still left in the day (if not, there's always tomorrow!) visit Thomas the Tank Engine at Tweetsie Railroad or go kayaking or tubing on the New River or bicycling on the flat, scenic road that runs next to it.
If bringing more than one dog an additional $50 pet fee will be added after your reservation is confirmed. Max 2 dogs allowed.

Recent Reviews About This Property
"We had a great time at the farm house! It is very spacious and the bed in the master bedroom is super comfy. We had plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the home. The firepit was great! We would stay here again for the space, but prefer direct river views and access. You can see the river from the front porch off to the left, but there are campers and trees in view. We also love the convenience of leaving our kayaks close by, but had to drag them quite a bit and up a hill to get back to the house. Not complaining, just explaining our preferences. The only complain I really have is that some people drive WAY to fast on the road. With little kids, I was concerned one would get hit. "
"Very nice house."
"Was very nice. "
"Our family came to NC from Orlando and Miami to escape the wrath of Hurricane Irma. Although it was a trying time for them having to leave their homes and some family in FL and worrying about their properties, staying at Dunroven Farm House helped ease their anxieties. The farm house makes all who stay there feel at home. I was fortunate enough to have my family celebrate my 68th birthday at Dunroven, creating happy times as a much needed distraction from the turmoil they will face with their return to FL. Thank you Terri and Todd for sharing this wonderful vacation paradise."

"We had a great time. Very spacious. It was ok on the cleaning, but we cleaned a couple of things ourself. From time to time it smelled like sewer from the septic tank inside the house. That was a bit disappointing... , but we had a good time"

Response from StayBlueRidge:We discussed this review with the guests and they actually meant to give us all 5's, the best review possible. It was just a mistake when quick posting the review, please be sure to read their comments and other rave reviews. They are already planning on renting this property again next summer. Tom C. and his family have vacationed with us every summer since 2013!
