The house sleeps 12 and includes 2 king beds, 1 queen bed, 1 full bed and extra futons. There are also 3 and a ½ baths.

Sit a spell in the rocking chairs on your wide wrap-around deck, soaking in the view of the lake directly in front of you and the majestic mountains cresting the horizon. Or take in the view from the hot tub! When you're ready for indoor entertainment, you'll find a lower-level media room with a flat screen TV, popcorn station, lots of games, and of course satellite connections for the TV and Wi-Fi for the Internet.

You'll love this home's tasteful décor and rustic mountain touches. You'll also be fully-equipped to handle any kitchen projects you want to take on, with pots, pans, dishes and a nice outdoor grill - at your service. All linens are included as well, and there's a washer and dryer for your convenience.

Although most High Country homes are well-cooled by our sweet summer mountain breezes, we've also outfitted your vacation get-away with central air conditioning and ceiling fans. In the winter, the fireplace provides lots of snuggling opportunities.

This home was built with your comfort and enjoyment in mind. It's located in a gated log cabin community with paved roads. There's even a garage to keep your car comfy!

You're close to restaurants and terrific shopping in West Jefferson, including antique stores and art galleries. There's even a quaint movie theater. This is small-town Americana at its finest.

Drive a little further to Boone or Blowing Rock, for an even wider assortment of dining, entertainment and shopping options. Tour the campus of Appalachian State University, or visit our craft breweries. And remember that here in the High Country, the journey is as satisfying as the destination, with gorgeous scenery at every turn.

Or take a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway, for the most amazing vistas and scenery. It was voted one of the top 10 drives in the country for a reason.

In the winter enjoy skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing or ice skating at one of the many area resorts. In spring or summer, the New River offers tubing, kayaking, canoeing and fishing. Warmer months are also a perfect time for horseback riding, hiking along the Blue Ridge Parkway, or bicycling through the area's many scenic routes. If you're a sportsman, don't forget to take advantage of our outstanding trout and small bass fishing.

Or - just sit on the porch and feel the stress of the city melt away.

Recent Reviews About This Property

"This beautiful cabin has all the bells and whistles! It is beautifully decorated and has anything you might need and more! I traveled with 8 women for a girls trip so the gated community gave us a sense of security! The neighborhood is beautiful and the homes are so far apart that you don't have to worry about noisy neighbors. The hot tub was pristine and the house was as well. Very well kept and fells like home. We will definitely return!"

Cassaundra S. from Raleigh, 03/07/2017

"The place was very nice. However, the kitchen has no pantry space for groceries and there are not too many options for cooking with regards to wooden utensils to use with the teflon pans.

Otherwise, the place was great."

Brian R. from Durham, 05/31/2017

"The place is beautiful with a lot birds and rabbits. The place gives you the opportunity to relax. I went to different places near by, so everything was great."

Chayenne J. from Wilmington, 07/27/2017

"Our stay at the Kapena Escape was wonderful! The location is beautiful, we loved the cabin's mountain views while being in a gated community. Our dogs loved the yard to watch the wildlife and loved being taken for long walks around the neighborhood. The cabin was equipped to our satisfaction. We cooked almost every meal there. We had plenty of space to not be crowded on top of each other for 8 people and all the beds were comfortable. We only had one issue which the management staff was very professional and quick to respond. We loved the cabin and plan to have future stays. "

Lindsey W. from Camden, 08/01/2017

"Every year we take my parents on a trip to the mountains. This year we stayed at Kapena Escape. The house was amazing. We had more than enough room for 8 adults. My dad absolutely loved the wrap around porch. I think he spent most of the trip on there. My children loved the hot tub. And my mother loved the mountain views. The basement was like another house. We rode around Jefferson and looked at all the sites. We are thinking about renting it again next year for our family vacation. "

Tamera R. from Iron station, 10/07/2017

"Great place to stay."

Leslie H. from Durham, 11/04/2017

"Our family had a wonderful time. Location was perfect and views breath taking. We only had one small issue with internet service for a couple days. All in All would definitely recommend and come again."

Heidi H. from fernandina bch, 11/27/2017

"Great place to have a great time with family and dogs,quiet, relaxing...."

Juan O. from Miami, 01/14/2018

"The cabin is beautiful! It really has everything you need for a nice quiet weekend away. It is close to town, the Blue Ridge parkway and other great site seeing spots. The only problem we noticed was the WIFI was very spotty and if you want to stream movies or try to work, it will prove to be difficult. Thankfully we didn't need the wifi for our weekend. "

from Angier, 05/22/2018

"This cabin has it all. Three master bedrooms, one on each floor. The upstairs bedroom has a Jacuzzi tub and a walk in shower. The hot tub out back was great. It is a very short drive to the river access. We put a canoe in at a bridge (Walt Sheets Bridge) a few miles away and basically floated back to the house in about 1.25 hours +/-. I couldn't have asked for a better vacation, except it wasn't long enough. We were a group of three couples and one child and a dog. Plenty of room for 7 people. We tried fishing in the pond, but I don't think there are fish in it. "

from Virginia Beach, 05/30/2018

"Kapena escape was a great place to stay for our family . We especially enjoyed the easy acces to the river , as we love to kayak and tube . The cabin was clean and very comfortable with beautiful views. The only drawback was that the property was advertised to be on a lake and it was a pond . We were looking forward to the use of the lake for our boys . We also had planned to Fish ,as had been advertised . Once we got to the property we noticed signs posted not to fish. This was very disappointing. "

Courtney M. from Ash, 07/17/2018

"Plenty of room in this beautiful cabin. The bedrooms were spacious as well. Loved the wrap around deck and the hot tub under the stars. Super quiet and lovely views. "

Karen P. from Oxford, 07/25/2018

"Very satisfied with our stay. Family was here from Florida for our granddaughters wedding hopefully soon we will be back for a vacation. The cabin was beautifully decorated and had all the comforts of home. We loved our stay at your cabin. "

from Dover, 09/08/2018

"Loved this house!We had plenty of room for our family and our friends that came down.Beautiful view and a nice quiet community.The only thing is that it would be nice to have a better fire pit to light fires.The one they had was a tiny metal fire pit but it was full of water.Luckily it was to warm to light a fire anyway.We will definitely rent this house again."

Jessica J. from Bennett, 10/09/2018

"We take an annual trip to the mountains each year and have stayed in a variety of rental properties. This was one of the best. Plenty of room. Well equipped kitchen. Entire house was very clean (I am one to notice dust on light fixtures etc and take note). Bonus was that we were able to bring our older dogs with us. At their age it is caused them great anxiety to be boarded when we need to travel and so this was a perfect solution. "

from Creedmoor, 12/07/2018

"6 Girls get a weekend away and we booked this cabin. We all work together at a salon and decided to have a weekend getaway. This is the 3rd cabin we’ve rented through Ashe County Realty and we’ve loved every one. I just called Judy to send me some cabins to choose from and we picked this one. Great company to rent from because I like to personally speak to someone so I can ask questions. We arrived Friday and didn’t leave the cabin until Sunday at checkout. The views are beautiful and it’s quiet. We enjoyed the rest and relaxation along with the hot tub time. We were surprised the TV had Netflix and thought that was a nice thing to provide for their guest. We will definitely be back. "

Erica P. from Hickory, 01/15/2019

"Me and about 6 friends/family members came up for a 2 night stay. The rental was very clean and the staff was wonderful with all the help. I can say the pictures does not do any Justice to how beautiful this place. It rained majority of our 2 days there so the hot tub and fire pit was out the question. But it would've been nice to have a covering over the tub so it could be used even in a light rain. Also, we couldn't get the TV's to work properly. The one downstairs the remote only change the input so we had to watch one channel. However, the was plenty of space for everyone and we all had a great time. I've already been recommending this place to others. And started planning another cabin trip. Thank you guys so much. "

Chela J. from Raleigh, 02/26/2019

"We rented this cabin as a combination of a place to stay close enough for our daughter's graduation event @ Appalachian State University & a family reunion gathering for our extended family. This place is far enough from Boone (40 minutes) to avoid crowds, we ate dinner in West Jefferson, there was no overflow from graduation weekend that I could see. During the weekend, we had between 8-12 people staying, enough space so no one felt cramped & could find comfortable sleeping arrangements. Although it rained off and on, we spent a lot of time on the covered back porch. There are two driveways that have plenty of parking, at peak we had 5 cars. I would definitely stay again. "

Toi W. from Midland, 05/14/2019

"Loved the cabin, location and view. The only issue and it wasn't a huge deal was the water in the hot tub looked dirty. But would definitely stay there again."

DIANA D. from SUFFOLK, 08/13/2019

"Enjoyed our weekend stay. Overall, house was clean and well laid out. Although some furniture was worn out, everyone enjoyed the amenities of the house."

Aaron E. from Kannapolis, 08/21/2019

"This was our 3rd year staying at Kapena Escape for a family getaway. The location is a short drive to West Jefferson and it is less than an hours drive to Boone and Blowing Rock. The property is clean and comfortable and we are very satisfied with it."

Deborah M. from Greensboro, 11/06/2019

"Kapena House was perfectly located to Jefferson, the Parkway, and other surrounding areas. The neighborhood is quiet and gorgeous. The home is well laid out, and comfortable. I would only recommend another mixing bowl in the kitchen, and a 9x13 pyrex casserole dish. There were plenty of utensils and good knives. There was also good pantry and cabinet space for food to be stored. One particular added bonus were the thermostats on each level. The weather turned cold, and we all stayed comfortable. We all had a great time."

from Winston-Salem, 11/06/2019

"Kapena Escape was just right for our girl's weekend. It's in a beautiful area with downtown West Jefferson not too far away, as well as hiking at Mount Jefferson. The property management was responsive about an emergency on Saturday. If you need to use the futons, I'd recommend bringing some padding for them, or just bringing an air mattress because they're not very comfortable. Overall, we had a fabulous stay and would stay here again!"

Megan K. from Chapel Hill, 12/20/2019

"it was great place i love to stay forever my son and wife didn't want to leave. "

roy w. from Hampstead, 12/30/2019

"Everything was wonderful, the house was clean, and a beautiful view. We will return soon! This has been our favorite home, and we travel to the mountains often. Thank you for such a great experience!!!"

Kellie B. from Cameron, 05/19/2020

"The cabin was absolutely beautiful and we loved the lake, we spent most of our weekend fishing. I do think the cabin could have used a golf cart to get to the lake, it was a tiring walk back up. We would stay here again ��"

from Gastonia, 06/09/2020

Mattie W. from Canton, 06/16/2020

"What a beautiful place to stay in up in the mountain. It has a lake to fish in. There is a nearby river where you can canoe. We love the Ashe Cheese factory. They make really good cheese. They make all varieties of flavored cheese. We will definitely coming back. "

from Hubert, 07/16/2020

"As soon as we walked in the house felt like home. I loved the upstairs bedroom and bath. The hot tub was wonderful . Plenty of space in the home for extended family. We would definitely stay here again. Great people to rent from as well."

Nancy F. from Burlington, 10/18/2020

"We stayed here for a long weekend including six adults and three children. The location was nice and as advertised. Had a problem with heat when we arrived, but management was responsive and had the problem corrected fairly quickly. The location was quiet and close to West Jefferson, which we enjoyed exploring. We rode the Virginia Creeper Trail--highly recommended--about an hour's drive away.
The hot tub was nice, and kids enjoyed fishing in the pond and making s'mores. Would definitely recommend this house and location."

Tom F. from Kenansville, 11/13/2020
