About Sikes Ragan
I grew up on the land where my cabin is as a boy, and built the cabin last year. I'm a fireman/medic that decided to develop my family land in 1997 after studying new urbanism at Oxford in England. People seem to like to be in a place where you can walk to everything that you need- grocery store, restaurant, tavern, hair salon, trails, fields to walk your dog, etc. So I built my cabin where everything is easy to walk to and yet you have a secluded little slice of nature surrounding your cabin allowing you to relax and enjoy your tranquil surroundings. I love the view of Camp Branch Creek with the sound of babbling water and birds singing invites you to kick back and enjoy the elements that I have thoughtfully put together to create this very special place called Cheshire after my grandmother's family name.
Sikes Ragan purchased this house in 1997
Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed at the Owl's Nest for a week. Times are difficult for all of us now-economic as well as physically. This place gave us time to "unplug" and "recharge" our souls. The Serenity, Beauty and Nature have healing qualities that we enjoyed. This is a beautifully designed and decorated home and we feel privileged to have stayed here. We hope to return to The Village of Cheshire in the near future. The Weather has been beautiful.
