About Carolyn and Keith Dowdy

We purchased this beautiful log home as a vacation home to share with our friends and large family. My husband and I live in Apex North Carolina, a 3 hour car ride from the cabin. We enjoy spending time at the cabin with our four children and extended family. We enjoy renting out the cabin for others to enjoy when we can't be there. We hope you enjoy the place and make your own special memories.

Carolyn and Keith Dowdy purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Carolyn and Keith Dowdy chose West Jefferson

We chose to purchase the property because of its location in the mountains for its year around enjoyment. The roads are also easy to manuver and you don't need a 4x4 to get to this property. We enjoy the 3,000 ft altitude in the summer giving us a perfect average temperature in the summer of 75F. The fall is amazing with the changing of the leaves. Winter brings the holiday season with many Christmas tree farms in the area and shops dedicated to all the trimmings of the season. Appalachian Ski Mountain is the closest ski resort at about 30 miles. Spring is a perfect time to see all the beautiful flowers and Mountain Laurel. Golfing in the area is available in the warmer months.

What makes this cabin unique

The North Carolina mountains are unique and attract visitors from all over the world for its natural beauty of its people and landscape.

Loved it!!! Great place.

  • 5 of 5

Owners were very friendly, check on us, and answered any questions we had. House was clean, well kept up, and was a great place. Loved how it is away from everyone, could sit by the fire pit and hear the stream. Would recommend this cabin for a nice getaway. We will be staying there again.

Beautiful log cabin in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

The log cabin was beautiful and the setting was amazing. Our family loved being in this well decorated real log cabin in the mountains right by a stream. You could hear the creek rushing all the time from the porch. You felt like you were miles away from everything but in reality were just minutes away from the grocery stores and the Town of West Jefferson, where there are some great restaurants and shops. We especially loved the Ashe County Cheese Shop and Boondocks Restaurant. Our whole vacation was amazing and the cabin was the icing on the cake. The owners were great, they answered all of our questions, the place was clean and well maintained. Of all the places we've rented in the moiuntains, this is the best! Thanks for renting out your home to us. We can't wait to come back and visit again!

Christmas in the snow!

  • 3 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The cabin décor was very nice, plenty of room for all of us. We never thought it would snow at the cabin, what a surprise when we woke up to find everything covered in snow. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay but you need a vehicle that can navigate rough roads. Not easy to drive to from main road. If you are looking for quiet and remote, this cabin fits the bill! Enjoyed being away from it all. Cabin super clean, comfortable with beautiful views.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the cabin and the beautiful views! Thanks for letting us know about the current road conditions on the 1/2 mile gravel road from the main road to the cabin. We will make sure to get the road conditions addressed immediately by the neighborhood HOA. I imagine with the recent 7+ inches of snow fall and the snow plows coming through some gravel got scraped off. Typically most vehicles can get through the neighborhood without a problem.. Again sorry, you had rough roads to get through during your winter stay, Thanks taking great care of the place. We would love to have you come back and stay again!

Beautiful log cabin with rushing sounds of Beaver Creek flowing 24/7 nearby. Home is surrounded by forest for perfect privacy, yet the Town of West Jefferson is just minutes away. The Town of West Jefferson is a small town with lots of charming country stores. Ashe Lake and waterfalls are upstream about a quarter mile hike. Information will be provided on where to find white water rafting, hunting, kayaking, caverns, gem mining, art festivals, hiking trails and downhill skiing/ snowboarding. The town of Boone and Blowing Rock are a short drive from the cabin.
