I've stayed at tons of places in the High Country and I think this is my favorite. The cabin was very clean and had everything anyone would ever need from completely stocked kitchen, towels, blankets ect. The beds were very comfortable and they was plenty of space for everyone. I would definitely recommend staying here.- Dave, Posted: 06/15/2017
This home is in a beautiful location and offers peace and quiet in a lovely cabin. Enjoyed sitting on the porch, overlooking a meadow with a pond, watching the deer and geese. We hope to return again. Highly recommend this home.- Paula, Posted: 07/20/2017
One of the best views I've experienced; the contrasting red barn against the vibrant green is amazing to see every day. The outside fire pit was a great evening spent with the family.- Tony, Posted: 07/30/2017
Beautiful house with a gorgeous view! Super comfy beds and awesome hot tub. Would definitely stay here again!- Sarah, Posted: 09/15/2017
This cabin did indeed offer a stunning view in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The cabin was clean and ready for our arrival. The location was convenient to the area ski resorts and walking distance to the river and historic St. John's Church. Our inter-generational family group of grandparents, parents and four grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed our winter vacation in the mountains. The driveway is steep, but we were aware of that prior to arrival.- Letty, Posted: 01/18/2018
We loved this place. Close by to everywhere we needed to be. Exceptionally clean and stocked with everything we needed. Can’t wait to be back! Be sure to visit, you’ll not be disappointed.- Ella, Posted: 02/05/2018
Great spot for our family of four. About 20 minutes from everything that we wanted to do (Grandfather Mountain, horseback riding, Tweetsie Railroad, and food!) Clean, well-kept, and comfy :)- Julie, Posted: 07/02/2018
We have booked through Blue Ridge over a dozen times and the cabins are always clean, well appointed and exactly as advertised.- Douglas, Posted: 10/10/2018
St. John's Ridge is a cozy and comfortable cabin with a beautiful view of the valley below and surrounding mountains. The additional bonus of the Watauga River running through the valley and right in front of the cabin was spectacular. The moment you walk through the door that quintessential cabin smell and décor welcomes you. The cabin has everything you need and was very comfortable for 3 married couples. The two porches are wonderful and where you will spend lots of time and the hot tub was so much fun soaking and looking over the valley. The kitchen and dinning area were functional and with great views. The wood burning fireplace worked well and made the experience even more enjoyable. The road in front of the cabin is wonderful for walking and takes you by St. John's church built in 1860 and along the river; we loved our morning walks. This cabin was centrally located to all the local attractions we sought to enjoy (food, shopping, hiking, and skiing). If you are looking for a wonderful mountain getaway that will make you just want to slow down, enjoy the beauty of God's creation, and breethe-in that incredible mountain air; you have found your cabin. I would share that the driveway to the cabin is pretty steep in places with some twists and turns that even in dry or rainy conditions may challenge some. You will want a 4-wheel/All-wheel drive vehicle as front-wheel drive only could present some concerns if you are not used to getting up gravel drives like this. If there is any possibility of snow, 4-wheel drive is a must. We will be back to visit St. John's cabin again.- David, Posted: 01/14/2019
Everything was great, the cabin, the view, all the little extra details, I mean everything! I can't think of one single complaint to voice.- Jessica, Posted: 01/31/2019
The cabin was so cozy! Everything about it was perfect. The porches were AMAZING with a beautiful view. Even the hot tub was perfect!- Kayden, Posted: 02/08/2019
Great cabin, location,atmosphere. Able fly fish the Watauga River. Nearby Valle Crucis with well cared for community park and trail along river. The general store and over yonder restaurant are a must. We had a wonderful time and were sad to leave.- Joel, Posted: 04/02/2019
Really enjoyed the relaxation of this mountain cabin. Be sure to have a four wheel or all wheel drive for the driveway. Everything was as expected. Would definitely come back and recommend.- Myron, Posted: 09/09/2019

Expectacular experience, wonderful place with great accomodations and views. Well equipped. We created some great family memories on this beautiful cabin. We would definitely recommend for a romantic and family getaway. The peace is undescribable. Priceless!!! The Seven Devil family.- Marisol, Posted: 01/21/2020
Had a wonderful time in the trees overlooking the valley. Convenient location, fully stocked kitchen, and plenty of games to keep the kids entertained.- Guest, Posted: 02/21/2020
Wow, what an amazing place! We loved every second! Amazing views, beautiful house, well stocked with everything you might need, sparkly clean, and the area is just perfect!- Ricki, Posted: 07/27/2020
This home is charming - clean, beautiful, gracious, hospitable. it was the perfect spot to beat the summertime heat. Thank you to our hosts and the very communicative, friendly, and professional folks at Blue Ridge Mountain rentals. We hope to be back!- Mary Grant and, Posted: 08/06/2020
Beautiful house with a great view and location- Lyndsey, Posted: 09/22/2020
The property is exactly as pictured and has a welcoming cozy feel the minute you enter! The kitchen was really well stocked (I way overpacked). With COVID going on we cooked and grilled more than we normally would do on vacation, which was great with the amenities on hand. We did truly love the nearby restaurant ‘Over Yonder' though! The covered decks & view were amazing and there is total privacy with this rental. Coffee in the morning and wine at night on the wonderful deck(s) was amazing even when it rained (and it did) it was heavenly! We love the area and this is a great home base to explore from and also relax enough to make this cabin ‘the entertainment' too. We enjoyed fires in the fireplace (you can request wood be delivered) mornings and evenings. We normally don't return to the same place twice but this cabin will definitely be the exception!- Lynn, Posted: 09/24/2020
Fantastic week in the St John's Ridge cabin! The view and the cabin can't be beat - it's close to everything you want to do but off the beaten path for peace and quiet at night.- Ann, Posted: 10/12/2020
Was a great place for our family. Perfect view!- Mark, Posted: 12/21/2020
Very enjoyable stay with a great view.- Ryan, Posted: 01/11/2021
St Johns Ridge was perfect for our family!!! We had fun making smores by the fire, relaxing in the hot tub, and just rocking on the front porch with an amazing view!!!- April, Posted: 01/15/2021
Absolutely gorgeous views & very private location! Awesome cabin with that “middle of nowhere” feel but very close to lots of attractions. We will absolutely rent this place again!- Mandy, Posted: 01/18/2021
Amazing Stay! The views were unreal! The home is situated in a private area but close to everything! We will definitely be back! The soaker tub was a nice touch and from almost every room we could see the mountains! Definitely one of our best mountain trips!- Kendal, Posted: 02/01/2021
The cabin and service from BlueRidge rentals was great.- Lou, Posted: 03/10/2021

Great view, comfy cabin, peaceful, had a wonderful stay- Diane, Posted: 03/24/2021
The description of the home was as expected based on the description and photos. The kitchen had all necessary utensils, the inside was very nice and the porch, chairs and views of the valley were excellent.- Matt, Posted: 03/30/2021
This house has the most beautiful views to wake up to in the mornings. My friends and I spent the majority of our time here out on the porch! Incredibly steep gravel driveway though so be sure to have the right car for it!- Emmy, Posted: 04/14/2021
Get ready for fun- Pablo, Posted: 04/19/2021
