Area recreation opportunities include fishing, hiking, biking, canoeing, and tubing all minutes away. Attractions near the cabin 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.

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. After a long day of fun on the New River, Jackson's Ridge will welcome you home to enjoy the rest and relaxation this mountain retreat offers.

Recent Reviews About This Property
"We enjoyed the rental very much. Spacious, kitchen fully equipped for cooking. Great front porch for relaxing."
"We stayed here for Christmas with our family. Our parents sold our family home of thirty.years, so we needed a house near my sister's that could handle a crowd. We were pleasently suprise by the well stocked kitchen equipment, and the house was a great fit. The house.was very clean and the hot tub was amazing. The staff were very helpful with planning and very friendly. The house is also a perfect location, near grocery stores, hiking, and downtown west jefferson. We enjoyed the game room & fire pit too. We will definitely return!"
"VERY CLEAN GREAT LOCATION BUT BUSY HIGHWAY REMOTE FOR GAS LOGS NEEDS BATTERIES. NO HBO :( HAD NO IDEA THAT WE WOULD HAVE TO TAKE OUR GARBAGE WITH US EXCEPT ON HOLIDAYS WE WERE CONFUSED ABOUT THE DIRTY LAUNDRY(TOWELS & LINENS)THAT WE COULD LEAVE WITHOUT BEING CHARGED SO WE BOUGHT DETERGENT AND BLEACH AND WASHED A LOAD OF TOWELS OVER ALL VERY NICE & CLEAN COZY CABIN
"The house was very clean and well maintained. Easy access from the highway. It was a short drive to West Jefferson (about six miles)from the house and Blue Ridge Parkway."
"This is my second time at this cabin and I believe it's my favorite! So well stocked, plenty to do and so comfortable! This trip was the first time I saw the owners comments book and wasnt to a pleasant surprise to find out they live in the next town from us...Smithfield NC. I love renting from this company as they are MORE than accommodating even in a last minute situation....WE'LL BE BACK JACKSON'S RIDGE!!!"
"I could not have asked for a better extended weekend get away."
"This was the 2nd time we have rented this house and it was as perfect as the 1st time. Clean, well appointed, everything worked perfectly. The deer even wandered up and down the yard again. Ashe High Co. Vacations is easy to work with and make the check in process easy. Thank you!"
"The house is large and roomy. The main living area is very comfy with plenty of seating and natural light. Well equipped kitchen! Downstairs area is huge and as a result, you could bring a couple of blow-up beds and set them up and still have space. You could probably fit two families here without issues as it's so spacious. The ONE item that we came across is that the grill is completely broken and filthy. Only one burner will light, and it is so caked that it just smokes.
There is no salvaging this thing. We bought steaks only to find out we were out of luck.
Need a new grill.
Other than that, we had a great time!"
"It was a very nice home with a good veiw. We would like to see if this home is or would be for sale?"
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thank you for the wonderful feedback. At this time I don't think the current owners are ready to sell however our sister company, Ashe High Country Realty, also found them this house and we'll be happy to help you do the same.
"This cabin was well equip and very nice. Everything we needed was there...could DEFINITELY rent again!"
"Our family loved our stay at Jackson's Ridge. The home is well furnished, especially the kitchen, which had anything you could ever think of using. Our tween/teenagers enjoyed the Wii and foosball table downstairs.
The location is great! You are right in between West Jefferson and Boone. We spent one day in West Jefferson. Lunch at Boondock's was delicious. Ashe County Cheese was enjoyed by all.
The next day we headed in the opposite direction. We stopped at the Mast General Store, as we do every year. We were attempted to do snow tubing at Hawksnest, but they mean it when they say you should get reservations. It was NOT fun to drive up that mountain (my oldest has vertigo and was sick for a while after that one) to find out the next available time was four hours later. Instead, we went trout fishing and gem mining at Grandfather Trout Farm. We ended up spending most of the afternoon there and it was wonderful!
The evenings were spent relaxing at the house. The hot tub was great for that. Overall, it was a perfect vacation. Our youngest has already asked to come back to this home for our winter trip next year."
Response from StayBlueRidge:What wonderful memories! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and look forward to hosting you again soon.
"We enjoyed our stay at this property. The home is comfortable and it was nice having two living spaces upstairs and downstairs. The hot tub took 6+ hours to heat up though. Lady bugs were literally everywhere. We saw this mentioned in the binder of information but it would have been nice to have the hundreds of dead bugs cleaned up before our arrival. Otherwise, it was a nice stay and we enjoyed our time there!"
Response from StayBlueRidge:We are glad to hear overall you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you again soon. The house was cleaned and hot tub serviced just a couple of days prior to check in after the previous weekend guests so we were very surprised to learn of the issues per this review. Please always feel free to contact with immediately so we can attempt to remedy any issues quickly.
"Great location. Very clean. Great service. Would highly recommend. Only drawback was driveway was a little steep with a sharp turn and gravel but had a truck so no problem."
"Very nice place. Will come back!"
"I loved this house. Comfy and spacious. Everything you need in the kitchen. Great views from porch and we loved seeing the deer come up the driveway every morning and afternoon. Driveway might be a little steep for some but we had no problem with our truck. Close to West Jefferson. Thank you"
"This was a great place for our children to stay while visiting from out of town. It was right on the river and close to West Jefferson. The cabin was a great size with 2 separate living quarters."
"The house was as pictured and very clean! Everything was working as promised. Propane in the gas grill, hot tub was wonderful and clean. We enjoyed the fooz ball table and property was well manicured. Wood was delivered upon request. I look forward to a return visit. "
"I spent the weekend at this cabin with my boyfriend and his family to celebrate an early Christmas. We had a wonderful stay and even enjoyed the hot tub and firepit on a chilly night. The house is comfortable for several people with a nice open floor plan . I couldn't have been more pleased with the management . We had several items shipped from Amazon to the house that ended up arriving before we did. The management team personally came to check on the packages and placed them inside the home for us. Top knotch!"
"We had an excellent family Thanksgiving in this relaxing beautiful house. "
"Had a wonderful time! Jackson Ridge was great with a great location will definitely come back!! No complaints. See you soon "
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thank you for your perfect rating. We are happy that you had a wonderful time! Thank you for staying with us and we hope to you soon!
"Had a blast at Jackson's Ridge. Nice place and location. Five friends, disc golf, good food and fellowship, will try to book again next year for sure !"
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thank you for your response! We are glad that you enjoy yourself! Hope to see you next year!
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thank you for taking the time to complete a review. We are glad that you were happy with property!
"The house is fabulous, as this is the second time we have stayed here. Everything was perfect, except for one thing... the neighbor house decided to re-roof their cabin over the weekend we were there. So, lots of hammers banging and workers occasionally looking over toward the hot tub. Clearly not the owner's fault, just made for a bummer weekend because the weather was so wonderful, it was just not great being on the deck."
"We booked last minute due to some unexpected time off and this was the only cabin available. It is close to town which is nice, but has no privacy. You can hear the neighbor's TVs, and their dogs roam all over outside the property. The house is well equipped from DirectTV to kitchen supplies and comfy furniture so that is nice. Other than privacy the only issue we had is that the bedrooms and beds were SO tiny my hubby and I had to sleep in separate rooms (even though I only weigh 100# and am 5'2"). The company was nice and easy to rent through."
Response from StayBlueRidge:This is very out of the norm for a Jackson?s Ridge review and out of the norm for this time of year in general. Christmas week with temperatures almost 70 degrees had guests opening the windows which probably lead to the increase in noise. As well as we always have more activity in our second homes during the holidays. Normally our Jackson's Ridge is a top choice with repeat guests and a guest just last week who would love to purchase if it ever comes on the market for sale! Take a few moments to read the other reviews. Jackson?s Ridge is located at the end of the street, with only one neighbor, usually very peaceful and quiet and actually very roomy. I?m 5?8?, a little plump and feel there?s lots of elbow room.
"A family vacation the week before Christmas. It was a great property, exactly what we needed. Thank you. Darrell Hempton and family."
"This was our second time for this home and again were very pleased. The house is always clean and the furniture and beds very comfortable. We cooked Thanksgiving there and the kitchen was very accommodating. We couldn't ask for better. Also very easy to work with the managing company."
"One of the nicest and well kept places we've stayed in. Kitchen was well stocked and bathrooms had plenty of linens. Even the beds slept well. Very satisfied.
"This wonderfully clean, very comfortable and well-appointed home is in a GREAT location for getting out and about easily! If you are an active vacationer who likes daily outings, this is for you. However, if you are looking to get away from it all and have cups of tea /coffee on the front porch in the peace and quiet of nature you might want to look for somewhere else because of the almost-constant traffic noise from the highway at the foot of the property. Also, if you have dogs and/or younger children there is almost no flat for chasing a ball. It's a great house, but it depends on the location you need."
"The house was wonderful. The only issues I had were the noise from the highway in the late afternoon while we were enjoying the rocking chairs on the deck and we could see the river but there was nowhere to access it. I would love to have been able to walk over to the river. We took three elderly people with us. One of the beds is rather high but was not a big deal. Overall we enjoyed our stay.
Looking forward to our next trip to the West Jefferson Area and working with Ashe High Country Vacations!"
"We have visited mountains many times and stayed in a lot of different cabins but this by far has been the best. The cabin is decorated just right and is equipped with all the comforts of home. We had a great time around the fire pit and the hot tub was awesome!!!"
"would stay again. Great house"
"We enjoyed the home very much!!!, the property was very clean and looked great!!!"
"We found everything we needed here. We were able to watch a meteor shower from the hot tub. The bedrooms were cozy. The living room was open and comfortable. We all had a great time, including the dog"
"We enjoyed the house. The leaves were starting to turn and the hot tub was great. Jacksons ridge was new and clean. Plenty of room for our family"
"Everything was great except the day of check out the water stop working therefore no one was able to shower"
Response from StayBlueRidge:Issue with low water pressure has been resolved.
"It was great! The house was very clean and neat. The layout was great, nice furniture and very comfortable. The upper porch was really nice on the cool evenings! Easy access to W. Jefferson, Boone, etc. "
