  • Courage Cabin


    The cabin was better than expected. The mountaintop view was exceptional, the cabin rustic yet modern, within a short drive to Wilkesboro, Boone, and Jefferson/West Jefferson. The hot tub was amazing. And while Google Earth makes the neighbors look really close, while you're there you would never know that there were other structures nearby. We will happily go back again for another trip, you can count on us as repeat customers.

    The cabin was as advertised but beyond. The view was priceless, the deck area so peaceful, a place to be alone with your thoughts. The hot tub so warm and relaxing after days spent hiking steep trails. We spent 6 nights here and loved the retreat we came back to every day. The fenced property was perfect for our two dogs. Everything one would need was supplied. Loved the decor, rustic yet elegant. The European touches and original art added a sense of warmth and comfort. Loved the large amazingly stocked kitchen. The fireplace could be so inviting however we chose not to use it as I like my rooms cool. Check in was flawless…what little communication I had was promptly answered. Fire pit looked wonderful but again we did not use. Bath products supplied were beyond expectations and reminded me of my favorite spa. Steep drive to the property but absolutely no problem. Great location to stores, Ashe County Cheese, great hiking trails and some restaurants.

  • Amazing View Cabin Loaded with Amenities


    Can’t say enough about how relaxing our 6 night stay was. From the cozy indoors with unique decor to the kitchen stocked with everything one would need to the wonderful bath items provided to the outdoor deck with amazing views, especially the beautiful sunrises and relaxing hot tub this cabin has it all. Total privacy was provided and in the evenings it was such a joy to grill dinner on the very nice grill, enjoy a glass of wine and to relax in the hot tub after steep hikes during the day. We didn’t use the fire pit however it looked like a wonderful place to sit at night and enjoy a fire. Even though I had my kindle with me for reading I chose to read two books provided in the bookshelf while there. Location is convenient to grocery and restaurants in West Jefferson and not that far from Boone. Courage Cabin gets my highest recommendation.

  • Perfect 5 Star Getaway


    This very wonderful cabin in the woods is absolutely perfect. It has everything you could possibly need, plus lots of little extras. Everything is so well explained and organized. We cooked dinner in the beautifully equipped kitchen every night, had breakfast on the deck, baked, hiked, read, watched movies, etc. It is furnished in the most lovely, cozy and luxurious way. We were there in early March but would love to come back in all seasons.
