Perfect cabin and location for our family. Located between Boone and West Jefferson, allowing trips to either town if needed. Sounds of the New River and walks along the banks was a much needed escape from our hectic week. Would love to plan a longer stay the next time!

We would definitely go again! The house had a great "homie" feel to it, with the river and Christmas tree fields surrounding the property. Plenty of things to do nearby- skiing, downtown Boone, etc. Great area and great house!

The house was more than I expected. My kids was very pleased. I will definitely come again. We are looking forward to next year,

Great place! Clean and well equipped. Love the apt downstairs for some privacy for my daughter and her family. Nice neighborhood, and beautiful country!

We were evacuating from south Florida for hurricane Irma and we needed a space big enough for the whole family, this was perfect. The property was amazing! Plenty of stuff to do for the whole family. Read the book about the history of the things in the house. We used it as a scavenger hunt with our daughter and she loved it and retold the stories to everyone we met. The neighborhood was perfect and welcoming. We will be renting again this coming summer and inviting family friends. Downstairs is set up like a full apartment so multiple families can come without bothering each other. Field was perfect for family reunion foot ball games or big outside dinners. We loved this house! Thank you so much!

We enjoyed the our stay at the River House. We celebrated our sons' birthdays with several other teenagers. The boys loved the field for tag football. Great access to the river for tubing and plenty of tubes for all of us. So nice to have firewood and firepit for smores. The upstairs kitchen was stocked well with all necessities and the living area was great for a group of 11. TVs in other areas need to be updated. Plenty of linens for beds but no washcloths and also could use more towels. FYI for other renters: Linens are provided but you do have to make your beds when you arrive. You can only leave two bags of trash at end of stay, if you leave on Sunday and have a big group that is a problem. We could not find place that would allow us to use trash bins. Over all the house was great for our needs with a few updates would be fantastic.

We had a great time. The house met our needs perfectly. We will be repeat customers.

Great location and the house was very nice.

My daughter was graduating from App we rented the house and had her friends over for a cookout. Large yard was great for out door games and fun. We will be back!
- Erin, Posted: 06/24/2018
This house was awesome! So quiet and secluded yet only minutes away from town. Our boys were immediately tubing in the river! Beautiful views. We will definitely book this house again!

Great view of the sunsets from the deck of this house. Yard was great for family fun like kickball and frisbee. We really appreciated the space our dogs had to run and play as well. Be mindful of the river access. Although there are makeshift steps, there are also wooden dowels sticking up past the rocks. We appreciated the realtor emailing us to tell us to watch the low water bridge because there was a chance of flash flooding which would have cut off access to and from the house. Thankfully, this wasn't an issue; but I would recommend making it known to potential renters that there is only one access to and from this development. Overall, the house met our needs for a large family with pets. High Country is a wonderful company to work with, very conscientious and caring of their customers! I would recommend them to anyone visiting the High Country!

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay here. As other reviewers have noted, the furniture, linens, decor, etc. aren't particularly stylish or new. However, everything was clean and neat which made for a comfortable stay. Access to Boone / Blowing Rock is easy, and our dogs loved the enormous yard. Overall we were very satisfied.
- Nancy, Posted: 08/03/2018
It was great to get away from life and just relax - I wish the "fire pit" was just that - we missed it like another reviewer - but saw it before we left - we enjoyed the tubes and the accessibility to the river - for 2 nights was fine, but not sure if I would rent to stay longer - can't beat the proximity to Blowing Rock and Boone

Large cabin that was able to fit 10 guys for a bachelor party with plenty of space. Had an awesome time at the property hanging out in the river and driving to nearby Boone.
- Joey, Posted: 09/10/2018
We enjoyed our stay at the home, although we felt very rushed to get out by 11 am on Sunday since we could not access the home until 4 pm on Friday.

I live in the area, but due to incomplete renovations to our home and company coming- we had to resort to renting a home for the weekend. Home was at a great location, quite neighborhood and having access to the river would have been a plus, had we had time to access the river. We rent a lot of homes for vacation and we all agreed, this was one of the cleanest dwellings we had spent time in. Kudos to the cleaning company! The only cons I had was the pans were terrible for cooking (all the food would stick and hard to clean), no saran wrap or foil in the home, pillows were flat and beds were tiny. These are things we could live with, but wouldn't hurt to make minor adjustments over time. Plus... need to change the directions. This home is now the third home on the right because a new one is almost complete right beside of it. Overall, we loved the house and would highly recommend it and would stay again, should the need arise!

Beautiful home, everything we needed for our stay.
- Virginia, Posted: 01/09/2019
The house worked out great for our family reunion. It is very roomy and slept 10 comfortably. We really liked the open floor plan. We also really enjoyed the yard and neighborhood for walks as well. The only downside on our stay was having to leave a day early because of river flooding which renders the bridge to the neighborhood impassable. We were reimbursed for the day though.

This is the third time my family has stayed at this property. The housekeeping is to be commended because this is one of the cleanest properties we have stayed at. Love the open floor plan, and a quiet, friendly neighborhood. We also enjoy the close proximity to Boone, West Jefferson, and Blowing Rock. New construction going on right beside the master bedroom, but the noise was not bad. The mattress in the master bedroom does need replacing in my opinion (very firm and "lumpy" in a few places), but the full-size mattress in other bedrooms are comfortable according to my family. Kitchen is well equipped for the most part. We did have to purchase muffin tins and a small baking pan for brownies. There was also starter paper towels and toilet paper (and one extra roll of toilet paper in the bathrooms) so that was nice. Also, love having an ice maker in the fridge. The main TV has limited channels (DirectTV) with lots of infomercials. We could not find the remote to the TV/DVD player in the bedroom. We were expecting firewood to be available in the basement per the rental description, but there was none, so no S'Mores for us. The TV was not working when we arrived, but a call to High Country Rentals was successful in figuring out the problem, and the service was friendly and accommodating. I'm sure they would have taken care of the firewood for us had we called. Love the number of bathrooms (4 toilets) and the property is well maintained with a large backyard that leads to the New River. It always feels like home when we stay here and look forward to renting again.

Perfect property for a big family. Not too hard to find and love the big back yard. A great place to stay during any season!
- Debi, Posted: 02/19/2020
We went with our kids and another family to do some skiing. This cabin was perfect for the 8 of us - 4 adults 4 kids and 2 pups. Lots of space. Fun amenities and so peaceful.
I would definitely return.

This was a great vacation rental for our family! Clean, convenient, and very accommodating for our kids.
- Tiffany, Posted: 09/14/2020
This Home & Area is absolutely beautiful. Right on the New River so you're able to enjoy a relaxing 2hr tube ride down from the Todd park, best part is you end up right back at your house! The home is spacious, clean and stocked with everything you need & more. The one thing I wish it had was better river access. Other than that it was perfect!
- Jeff and Mary Beth, Posted: 01/05/2021
The cabin was clean. It's location is very convenient to Boone and the roads were very easy to drive on. It has nice view of the creek out the back. The downstairs quarters were perfect for our adult sons. There was lots of room to have family over for a meal. We enjoyed our weekend in the cabin.
- Carlos, Posted: 01/26/2021
Beautiful House and view, has brochures and options on any attractions. provides many games and things to entertain the family with.
- Daria, Posted: 02/17/2021
This place is just lovely! We had fabulous views and a warm fireplace to enjoy! The kids played downstairs in their own 'club room' floor!! We enjoyed our stay very much. Would rent again here....

Great location to Boone. Being on the river was great!

spent Easter weekend in the mountains with a group of close friends and this cabin was perfect for our getaway!! Convenient to Boone, great views, and loved relaxing on the deck.
