Such a fun spot and charming house. Fishing, canoeing, swimming, hunting crawdads and cooking…so much fun with our children. We also met the owners who were super nice.

We loved our stay at the New River Farmhouse in Laurel Springs. The house is very quaint, private, and clean. Hopefully we can stay there the next time we're in Ashe County!

We had made plans at another house, (different owner as well). The house became unavailable the afternoon we were traveling, but the owner of that house found this one for us and had already contacted the agent. This house was perfect for us and our friends to enjoy a little time away. The house is a great size, clean, has a well stocked kitchen, and much more. Basically, it had everything we needed! It snowed while we were there and the owner came by to make sure we were okay and had everything we needed. It is a cozy house and we would definitely come back!! Thanks so much.

We enjoyed our stay. House is in great location with beautiful views of the river House feels far out but very easy 20 minute drive to west jefferson. Would definitely like to come back in the summer to enjoy the river .

We enjoyed our stay on the river. The house was great. Would stay there again.

Perfect, peaceful stay in the beautiful mountains, can't wait to come back in the summer.

This is our new home away from home. Very clean old fashioned farmhouse with great views right on the river.

We were very happy with this vacation. The location was great. It was private and everyone enjoyed the river experience. It was a little bit tough for some to get in and out of the river, but once you were in the water it was a nice part of the river to walk around in. I had fun fishing in the New River. The creek was nice also but not good for fishing.
- Jatana , Posted: 07/28/2021
Property is in great location off the beaten path and has everything for a couple night stay you need. If you are wanting to fish, however, it's a difficult spot to fish from the bank and the creek is really small and low this time of year. For the hardcore fisher, I'd come early spring or later in the fall. for the family that wants to float the river, it's awesome. And the fireflies at night were spectacular. We'll be back definitely!!

Its right on the river if you love to to fish. Almost no traffic. The house was great, really takes you back. The views of the river make you never wana leave

We loved the quiet location and watching the river flow by. The cottage is well equipped and so comfortable. We hated to leave.

The New River Farmhouse was perfect. The property is beautiful, with the New River and a creek right beside the property.
- Lindsea , Posted: 04/26/2021
Place was great. River right there. Got some fishing in. We all loved the house.

The house is on a very quiet road, ideal for walking. Picturesque by the river, but 10/15 minutes from Jefferson/West Jefferson. While it is a quiet road, it snowed while we were there and our road was ploughed by 11am the next day - very impressed.
The decor is definitely old, but everything in the kitchen worked, and there is plenty of kitchen equipment, utensils, etc.
Three things that could be improved. One, a hairdryer would have been helpful. Second, both my husband and I developed itchy eyes in the house - not sure if it was dust, or something else. Didn't affect our stay as we were out hiking most of the day, but worth mentioning. And lastly, we left on a Sunday, so didn't have to take our trash, but I'd have been irritated to pay a hefty cleaning fee and still have to remove my trash!
However, all in all, would definitely recommend this property. Lovely small house in a great location.

Nice quiet location, nice older farmhouse.

I loved it! Would return and recommend .

We visited to do some trout fishing in the mountains, had a very good time.

The house was very well kept and clean. All the amenities were included. Only issue is that the home is not very well lit - a bit dark inside. Changing the bulbs from incandescent to LED not only would brighten up the place, but use less electricity. Otherwise, it's charming, quiet and peaceful.

Thank you for choosing StayBlueRidge and leaving us a great review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We will also take your advice and change out the light bulbs to help with the lightening. Suggestions are always a great help.

The home was equipped with everything you need for your home away from home in a quiet setting! It reminded me of my grandma's house!!
- Tracy T from Ernul, NC, Posted: 10/03/2020
Our vacation in the River Farmhouse was everything we could have asked. We loved the house, being by the river. We grilled outside every evening and sat by our campfire, surrounded by fireflies, every evening. We can't wait to go back again.
- Carla S from Bluffton, SC, Posted: 08/19/2020
Thank you for the rave review! We look forward to hosting you again soon.

Great Location we had a great time fishing in the river and good location for kayaking. We would love to come back again soon. Our last day there we had a very traumatic event happen and my husband was in the hospital most of the night. I called the rental company to ask for a later checkout if possible because he was finally getting some sleep. I do not know the ladies name that I spoke to but she was so very nice and understanding and she told us that was not a problem at all and if there was anything they could do to help just let them know. Thank you so much for you kindness and we will definitely use Stay Blue Ridge again.

The house location is great for kids. Private, very little traffic on the road. Our grandsons, 9 and 7 years old had a blast. They were able to play in the stream, swimming, jumping rocks, fishing. We had campfires at night. Sat on the porch while they played in the yard. The house is clean and comfy. The kitchen has the basics but I struggled without nonstick pans. Overall everything was wonderful and we are looking forward to staying here again.

Great Place to Stay!
We booked this house just to get away a couple of days and we wanted to spend a day on the New River. This place was great even though it's a older house it is well kelp. We spent all day (7 hours) on the New River and got out right in front of the house. It was very nice not having to drive home afterwards. We will most definitely be back.

Love The Farm House
First off I would like to applaud Stay Blue Ridge and Jarrita and staff y’all are awesome. The Farm house was awesome and a perfect gem it remind me of my grandparents house year’s ago and we had one of the best Thanksgiving just my wife and I. The road is not travel a lot and the New River is across the road and a nice fire pit and only 12 minutes from West Jefferson. The Farm house is a wonderful gem on the New River oh the only thing is we wish it was for sale. Will rent it many more times.

Second time staying here. Very clean and quiet. The owners came by to mow and I explained that the a/c wasn’t keeping up in the evening especially after cooking ( they said it was one of the hottest weeks there). A few hours later they showed up with a new a/c and two fans! We hated that they spent the money, but it saved the week! Super nice people! We plan on going back next year!
