About the property

3 Suites, One On Each Floor, Sleeps 6

Ruby Moon is a jewel of a house. This bright and airy home is not your typical mountain cabin. All of the finishes are top of the line, with granite counters, travertine baths, and wood floors throughout.

Ruby Moon has three levels of cozy beauty, with a bedroom and full bath on each floor. The first floor offers a fireplace in the bedroom with a queen size bed and direct access to the wraparound deck. The second level hosts another wraparound deck, the main room, kitchen and a king size bedroom. The upper floor offers a loft and private suite with a third bedroom and a king size bed. The loft is perfect for hanging out to read late into the night, or greet the day with a quiet cup of coffee. If you are a morning person, you will never see a prettier sunrise than from here. Enjoy luxurious surroundings and the panoramic view from every room in the house.

Big Tree Mountain is an established subdivision with paved roads that provide easy access to Ruby Moon. You feel above it all at 4,500 feet. As you relax on the covered decks, you can watch the cars travel through the hills below or see the lights flicker on as the day ends.

About Jeff Hill

Our daughter began college at ASU in the fall of 2012. Every time we went to visit her we drove around and looked at homes dreaming of one day having a place in the mountains. In the spring of 2015 we were driving around in West Jefferson and happened on this enchanting cottage. We were charmed by the house and amazed by the view. Later that afternoon, as we were heading home, Jeff suggested we drive by one more time. It was twilight as we pulled down the driveway. The moon began to rise over the mountains on the horizon. It was a magical moment! Later we realized that it was the night of the Blood Moon. As we drove home we discussed the house and agreed that if it was ours, we would honor that memory in the name. Hence, Ruby Moon.

Why Jeff Hill chose West Jefferson

Ruby is beautiful inside and captivating outside. The view is incredible during all seasons with covered decks for maximum comfort.

What makes this cottage unique

There are spectacular long range views from every room. At 4,500 feet high, summers are cool and comfortable. During winter, two gas fireplaces keep you cozy.

Great home with outstanding views

  • 5 of 5

I've rented cabins in this area for several years and this rental had by far the best views. The home is well furnished with attention to detail. Thoroughly enjoyed our week in the mountains and Ruby Moon.

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing time and the owner was very helpful. The cabin was clean, comfortable, and had breathtaking views! While we had a few neighbors, it was still secluded and quiet and really allowed for quality family time!. A+ experience!

This is our second time staying at Ruby Moon for Spring Break. We love coming to the mountains this time of year! We had snow, sunshine, fog, and cool air! Being from South Florida, it is a great change of pace! Ruby Moon is just a perfect get away. The home is in excellent condition and very well appointed. The beds are so comfortable and the views are spectacular! The home is located on Big Tree Mountain which is an amazing place just outside downtown West Jefferson.

If you on on the fence on where to stay, choose Ruby Moon. You will not be disappointed!!!

Amazing property, wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

As a family we were celebrating my wife's birthday. We found Ruby Moon and were delighted it was available. Jeff was wonderful to work with and the house is amazing. On the days when the weather was foggy and wet, we felt like we were in our own little cloud house. The sun was out for one day and the view was truly spectacular. We plan to come back when the weather is warmer so we can enjoy the numerous decks. Great tv's and wi-fi. Beautiful kitchen. The road to the property is steep and winding, for sure. While we didn't end up needing 4x4, we felt much more confident driving a Jeep, just in case.

If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at the Ruby Moon. It is a beautiful home with all the upgrades. The view is just spectacular from every level. Everything you need is there. The three bedrooms were so large with a fabulous full bathroom, so everyone had their own space. The living room was cozy for snuggling and watching movies. And we cooked great meals in the well appointed kitchen. We will most definitely be back!

Car: necessary

When at Ruby Moon, you are less than 15 minutes from West Jefferson, which offers several grocery and drug stores, as well as a charming downtown area with fun shops and great restaurants. If you are interested in a day trip, you are 30 minutes from Boone, a vibrant college town with lots to explore. After a leisurely 45 minute ride via the Blue Ridge Parkway, you can be in Blowing Rock, an enchanting mountain town with lots of shops and restaurants to try. For the adventuresome types, the tiny town of Todd is only 15 minutes away. This unspoiled spot offers several miles of flat, bike riding heaven along the New River on Railroad Grade Road. The New River is also a perfect spot to fish or kayak.

There is truly something for everyone, from skiing to Tweetsie Railroad and antiquing to fishing, there is an activity for every taste. Or you might just want to hang out and enjoy the best view in the mountains!
