Property Description

Dee Dee's Cottage is a project I've taken on with my 80-year-old mother. Dee has spent most of her years in the antique business, and renovating this charming old farmhouse has been a pleasure since it's given her not only a place to stay when visiting us in the mountains, but also something to keep her engaged in during her golden years. The house is lovingly blended with some of her antique pieces as well as new finds that fit the period of the house. My family is so excited to share it with our off-mountain relatives, and we would also love to open our doors to you and do all we can to make your mountain stay memorable.

The house, located 15 minutes from West Jefferson and 25 minutes from Boone, is tucked away in a picturesque mountain setting where livestock are your neighbors. The New River is less than 10 minutes away. Todd, NC's old mercantile, RiverGirl fishing, tubing, and kayaking, and Railroad Grade Road, a popular jogging and biking destination that winds along the river, are also close by. If you love walking, shopping, and dining on old main streets but have never given West Jefferson a try, you're missing out! Sitting in the shadow of towering Mount Jefferson, it's a haven for antique shoppers, one of a kind arts and crafts made in the community, and locally owned eateries. Tour Ashe County Cheese and get some to take home. Or use the cottage as a base for your choose-and-cut tradition and bring home a tree from one of the many nurseries nearby.

Dee Dee's cottage sleeps seven in beds, has smart TVs in two rooms, and a remodeled, well-stocked kitchen featuring granite countertops and brand new retro appliances. There's a small stream bordering the property, a flat by mountain standards yard for the kids to play in, two covered porches, and a fire pit for s'mores making on chilly mountain evenings.

If you think you might need a little more space, there's a custom built tiny house on the opposite end of the acre property that can be rented in tandem with Dee Dee's cottage for a special rate. Search for property #431294 to see the tiny house.

Long Weekend Get Away

We recently stayed at Dee Dee’s Cottage and had a great time. Our kids enjoyed playing in the yard and in the stream and the campfire was a big hit. The cottage has all the amenities you could need and was a great place to cozy up and watch movies after the kids went to bed. We will definitely return to the cottage when visiting the Boone/Blowing R... Read More

Charming for sure. . .but

This charming farmhouse has been very well renovated. There's nothing that feels particularly old or dilapidated. That said, it embodies both the charm and issues inherent with structures built in the 1940s. First, it's quite roomy in both bedrooms, the dining room, kitchen, and even the bath. The living room is very small and inadequate if you hav... Read More

Girls weekend getaway...

Nicely renovated cottage! The house was perfect for a girls weekend getaway. The house had an old farmhouse feel and had all the amenities that we needed. The property is close to West Jefferson and Boone. The owner was very attentive and quickly responded to any questions we had. I would stay here and again and definitely recommend it to others!

Paradise nestled in the middle of nowhere.

This property is an simple farmhouse that has been updated with all the modern amenities. It was immaculately clean upon our arrival and was set up very tastefully. The night we arrived it was in the single digits temperature wise but the energy efficient heaters each with their own remotes kicked out the heat no problem! The kitchen had everything... Read More
