About Ellen Kinsinger
Originally from California, made a career move to North Carolina over 15 years ago and immediately fell in love with this beautiful State and it's people. I work in the legal technology industry and my husband is an aerial photographer. Though we live in the city, we are lucky to have enough room for four rescue dogs, a cat and organic garden. We enjoy our city life but escape often to the mountains to unwind and relax.
Ellen Kinsinger purchased this House in 2008
Why Ellen Kinsinger chose Jefferson
We decided to buy our mountain farmhouse because with our busy schedules and the dogs, we didn't get to travel as much as we liked. We decided to buy something we could easily get to and escape our everyday lives. We had vacationed often in and around West Jefferson and were already in enamored with the area. We fell in love with the 'farmhouse' the moment we stepped foot on the long front porch and were embraced by the cool breezes and peace and quiet of the mountains.
What makes this House unique
The Parkway Farmhouse has the charm of a mountain farmhouse with modern amenities. A sweeping front porch, cathedral entry, 9 foot ceilings, stacked rock gas fireplace and hardwood floors. The Farmhouse is a beautifully furnished and decorated home with many touches from local artists including art, pottery, lamps and soaps. The Farmhouse is located less than a mile off the breathtaking Blue Ridge Parkway. Walk out the front door and hike to stunning waterfalls or mountain vistas. Take the Parkway to breakfast or lunch in Glendale Springs or the Historic Lodge in Doughton State Park. Dine at the River House or the quaint mountain town of West Jefferson. Float down the 'New', fish for trout, bike the Virginia Creeper Trail, or just sit on the front porch and watch the deer cross the yard and the birds on the feeder. Whatever your definition of a good time, you'll find it at the Parkway Farmhouse.

My sister and I had the best time celebrating our dad's 79th birthday staying in your beautiful farmhouse. We were small children the last time it was just us and our parents. We enjoyed everything about our time in your home. Master bedroom on first level was perfect for our parents. We loved the fireplace and the comfort of the living room. We ventured out during the day but couldn't wait to get back to cook dinner and play dominos. I can't wait to book again. We absolutely loved everything about our stay especially the farmhouse.
A real gem in the woods!
Everything about this property was superb! The home was simply charming and was equipped with all the conveniences of home, was nicely decorated and located in a mountain neighborhood that was quiet, heavily wooded and beautiful. We will definitely be going back again!
Great summer retreat
Pleasant, quiet, and interesting wildlife. The road from the BR Parkway to the house was well-maintained and easily managed with a Prius. The house was beautiful, spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. We were sad to leave. The only thing I would add is a place to eat outdoors.
Thank you for your kind words and for taking such good care of The Farmhouse. Wish you luck with building your new cabin!
Relaxing and Comfortable
We loved staying at the Parkway Farmhouse. The front porch was so relaxing with views of the forest, the sound of the wind in the trees, and the sound of the stream below. The inside was comfortable and charming, It had everything we needed for a great vacation away from the noise and cares of our busy lives.
Really clean place
House had everything you could need.
Peace and tranquility
Our 2nd time at the Parkway Farmhouse and just as I remembered. Well equipped, tasteful, clean and with all the little touches that make it inviting and comfortable.
