Bring your creativity to Stonewood on the New, where the artist owner leaves an easel and plenty of space for you to enjoy during your stay in her delightful retreat! Stonewood is just a short walk to the common riverfront area, so bring your inner tubes, kayaks, canoes and fishing gear!
Stonewood sleeps up to eight people. If you are coming with extended family or two couples, consider renting both Stonewood and A-Frame of Mind across the road! Stonewood is classic mountain log cabin. One of our favorite areas of the house is the comfy sunroom/studio, where light and the natural surroundings flood the airy space. You’ll feel like you’re in a tree house! There’s also a cozy daybed with a trundle for naps or overflow sleeping - 2 Twins. It’s a great room to visit with those you love and you can turn on the gas logs in the “wood” stove for ambiance and settle in to watch TV.
In the living room, the real stone fireplace conjures thoughts of pioneer days but you get to easily light the gas logs before curling up with your friends or family or a good book and a glass of wine or cocoa. We love the exposed beams and you’ll love the many windows making the outdoors a part of your day, no matter what the weather. There’s a queen sleeper sofa here, too.
The kitchen is just the right size, with a dishwasher and all the other normal appliances. You’ll find all the things you need to cook a meal or reheat leftovers from one of the good restaurants in West Jefferson or nearby Boone.
On the main floor a full bath with a claw foot tub offers modern convenience with an old-timey feel.
Upstairs the main bedroom has a an electric “wood” stove, set against a stone wall. With the flick of a switch you’ll add warmth or change the mood. Combined with the comfy full bed and a TV, this room is also a quiet getaway when you’ve got a crowd. Across the hall is a second bedroom with one full bed and one twin. They share a bath with access from both bedrooms.
Outside the deck offers a grill and al fresco dining and plenty of gently sloping yard to enjoy. A favorite spot will be the fire pit, with Adirondack chairs and a swinging bench.
Location, Location, Location
Located in Southern Ashe County, from this cabin you can access all that our northeast NC mountains (“the Coolest Corner”) has to offer. West Jefferson is only 20 minutes north, where you can enjoy all the shops, restaurants, festivals, galleries and two breweries (or go a bit farther to Lansing if you like hard cider!). Since it’s only 30 minutes to Boone, and just a bit more to Blowing Rock, it’s the ideal location to take in all the region offers. Mt. Jefferson is only 20 minutes north, and you’ll be as thrilled by the view as we are no matter how many times we see it. You can drive almost to the top. There are hiking trails and picnic areas.
Many of our guests love to spend time driving the Blue Ridge Parkway, and your access point from the cabin is about 10 minutes. Drive north to Glendale Springs where you can see the frescoes at the chapel there. Lunch is on offer at the café. Greenhouse Crafts and the Northwest Trading Post (both closed for the winter) have tons of cool stuff on offer. South you can get to Moses Cone Park, with trails and a great crafts shop. Or go North to Doughton Park and the Brinegar cabin (often with an interpretive ranger on duty to tell you about life for the family here at the turn of the century from the 1800s to 1900s).
