Cozy cabin on top of a hill. Suggest using 4 wheel drive or AWD for access. Kitchen has most items for cooking. Only 2 rockers on porch, so bring a few camp chairs if more then 2 guests. Would definitely request this one to book again as it was close to Boone and West Jefferson fun.

We really enjoyed our anniversary weekend at this cabin. Very quiet, private and had great views. Would love to come back in leaf season or get snowed in for a few days!! Comfortable furnishings and clean. Perfect for a couple or a family with kids. Besides the master bedroom there's 2 lofts that could sleep 3 people. There's a big open meadow perfect for playing (the dogs loved it)! Good location between Boone and West Jefferson. My only suggestion is a sign by the driveway with '527' and an arrow pointing up the hill.

We loved this property and we want to come again!!!! The hot tub was a nice surprise as it was not listed on the website. Our daughter attends App State so this gives us a out of town but near enough retreat!

We loved our stay at Idlewild Ridge! We were glad to be arriving in daylight as the last 5 minutes of the drive are gravel, mountain, windy roads. The instructions given from the company were accurate, but I would definitely recommend getting in to town before dark! The cabin is very secluded with only 1 immediate neighbor--we could only see lights from 3 other houses in the distance at night. It was perfect size for my husband and myself, and the loft upstairs had 2 additional twin beds if you had kids with you. We were worried about being cold at night but the insulation there was incredible. The hot tub was great after a long hike. The sunset views were amazing every night and we even got up for sunrise once and had a perfect view. It took us about a half hour to get to Blowing Rock or Boone taking back roads, a little less on main roads. The closest grocery was less than 20 minutes away if I remember right. There is a Blue Ridge Parkway entranced within 10 minutes. The kitchen was well equipped-we were able to make what we wanted for dinner and breakfasts without worrying about having enough dishes. Overall, we loved our stay! Would 100% go back.

This was a beautiful place and the view was amazing, everything looked exactly as pictured and I would definitely recommend staying here. The people were awesome and any questions I had they contacted me back right away.

My wife and I were very surprised at how nice the home was in comparison to the available photos; this property is a very high end mountain cabin which is not reflected in the outdated listing photos The pictures don't do this property justice; not even close. We booked this home last minute and felt as if we took a gamble based on the photos but were pleasantly surprised. Not pictured - hot tub, master bedroom, property seclusion, etc. This property is extremely private, we recommend getting there before it's dark. We would definitely book again and hope to return soon.

The views here are gorgeous. Perfect spot for family of 4. The cabin is secluded, cozy and equipped with what you need. The hot tub/porch view is amazing. The sunset is absolutely unreal. We cooked over the fire pit and the grill. Everything feels updated/newer and is in perfect working order, the kids were happy with high speed internet so they could relax after vigorous days of kayaking and site seeing. They loved their loft bedroom. The living area cozy for TV/family time. Highly recommend to anyone!!! Thank you for a wonderful experience!!

You couldn't ask for better views. We enjoyed watching the stars at night. The home was clean and comfortable. The directions were excellent, especially considering there is a road that is closed. It was a perfect mini vacation from the world before school starts back. We hope to stay here again soon!

We really enjoyed our stay at Blessed Sunset Getaway! Beautiful views from inside the living area as well as the porch. Comfortable accommodations and only one visible neighbor (who was only around one night while we were there). Easy access to Boone, Todd, and West Jefferson, with activities like kayaking, tubing, biking, hiking and shopping available. We had to contact Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals about an issue with a circuit breaker and a missed trash pickup, and both were promptly resolved. Enjoyed ourselves so much we extended our visit by one day. Great place and agency!

My husband and I chose to go to the mountains to spend some time together with our dogs. We loved the location of the cabin. Even with Covid happening, our stay was never interrupted. All the information was always given a good amount of time ahead of time. I would recommend this over and over again!

Great Place for a winter Vacation. Would definitely recommend 4x4 or AWD as the cabin is pretty isolated.
