“This is the nicest place we have ever stayed.”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our daughter gave us a present two Christmas's ago and we went for a weekend, and this is the second time we have visited and can say that Gary and Joanie are the perfect hosts. And, this is not like any other rental, it has all the ammenities. The view is spectular. Even watching the rain or the mist is the wonderful. We stayed 3 days, this last time, and we paid half this time, as this was our second visit. I tell friends that it is "a little bit of heaven". It is so peaceful, and there is so much to do in the surround area of Blowing Rock and Boone. Thanks, Gary and Joanie for making this a super wonderful vacation spot.

We ordered their home made Pizza the first night both visits, and it is wonderful sitting on the deck and sharing this with our family.

“Another . . . Perfect Visit”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We took our parents to the Cabin last year and they loved it so much they practically begged to go with us again. As usually, we had a wonderful stay. We stayed in the West Wing the first night (as the Cabin was already booked), and then transitioned to the Cabin for the rest of the stay. Both properties are unique and offer different features. Joanie and Gary are the sweetest, and we couldn't of asked for a better visit. We look forward to returning!

“Another Outstanding Stay at the Kilkelly's”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My husband and I have stayed in the Kilkelly cabin many times and this trip was our first in the West Wing. It is private and lovely with great attention to every detail - as is the cabin. It is located within an easy drive to either Boone or Blowing Rock and the owners are a very delightful couple. The views are spectacular and so is the well-planned surrounding landscape of the property. We will continue planning yearly stays at the Kilkelly's and anxiously await our next trip. In fact, it is always hard to leave such a lovely and peaceful place.

“More than expected”

My husband and I stayed in the Kilkelly cabin for a week to celebrate my birthday. I had high expections going in based on the wonderful reviews and photos of the property. The home exceeded our expectations by a mile! It was the perfect mountain getaway. The home is beautiful with no detail left out. All of the furnishings and decorations are high end and we took advantage of everything the home had to offer. The view of the mountains is stunning- we would wake up every morning to watch the sun rise. We also loved the bird feeders outside...I could watch all of the different birds for hours and not to mention the bunny rabbits, squirrels and chipmunks! The upstairs master bed was cozy and comfy and the bathroom was extremely spacious. After long days hiking my husband and I would come back and relax in the hot tub and gaze at the beautiful scenery. Joanie and Gary are wonderful people and even their dog Annie came to visit us at the cabin! Joanie's homemade pizza was delicious- it hit the spot after a long drive up from Florida. Joanie also left us homemade cappuccino muffins upon our arrival. What a nice surpirse and yummy! All in all this was a spectacular vacation and we cannot wait to go back. For anyone who has hesitations about this property....don't....you wont be disappointed!
