LUXURIOUS BLUE RIDGE CABIN WITH BREATHTAKING VIEW FROM HOT TUB

Fancy Gap Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (6 Guest Maximum)

LABOR DAY WEEK STILL AVAILABLE. CALL NOW TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT LATER!

What a view! And it just got even better with the addition of new stainless steel cable deck rails that give an almost totally unobstructed view of the Piedmont and valley below - no wooden pickets or rails to get in the way!

'Pilot's Perch'TM is the perfect log cabin rental for your romantic mountain get-away or vacation.

Relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the Blue Ridge Mountains in this charming and tastefully decorated cabin with vaulted ceilings and a wall of windows and glass doors from which to experience the amazing mountain views.

'Pilot's Perch'TM sits atop the mountain, in a beautiful setting, away from the hustle and bustle, but within a short distance to area attractions. Located just off Highway 52, approximately 3.5 miles from Mile Marker 199 of the Blue Ridge Parkway; this log cabin home is furnished with everything you need for rest and relaxation.

Curl up on the comfy sofa or love seat, both of which offer recliners, in front of our stone fireplace with inviting gas logs. Relax in the Jacuzzi tub. If it's the outdoors you love, grab a seat in an old timey cedar rocking chair on one of the two spacious mountain view decks or front porch and take in the breathtaking view of Pilot Mountain, the valley below and a long-range view of the Piedmont. This cabin boasts a wide open panoramic view. An added bonus is that there's always a breeze.

Enjoy a soak in the 'oh-so-relaxing' bubbling hot tub and let the water wash away the tensions of the city. Cuddle in front of the gas lit fire pit on a covered deck. Wake up snuggling under a handmade quilt in a warm and cozy bed with luxurious linens and pillowtop mattress to the sounds of birds and sights of deer and wild turkeys as close as your own front yard. Step out onto a deck to sip your coffee as you take in the gorgeous colors of the season. Spend the afternoon fishing in one of the two ponds in our development, enjoy a picnic beside a covered bridge, hike nearby trails, climb waterfalls or just relax and do nothing.

Motorcyclists and bikers will appreciate the security of the garage and the paved driveways. Senior citizens will appreciate the ease of accessibility; only two steps up and you're on the front porch which leads directly into the main living area of the cabin.

This Fancy Gap cabin has it all!

NO PETS! NO SMOKING! NO EXCEPTIONS! MUST BE 24 YEARS OLD OR OLDER TO RENT.

We built “Pilot’s Perch”TM log cabin as our personal vacation home in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We named the cabin after Pilot Mountain, which both decks face, and the fact that the cabin appears to literally “perch” on the side of our mountain lot. 'Pilot's Perch'TM is our home away from home. It has given us a peaceful and stress free destination at which to relax and unwind. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. The cabin is beautifully furnished and decorated with all the conveniences of home and we continually update and add amenities to enhance our guests' mountain experience. The only negative thing we have discovered about “Pilot’s Perch'TM, is having to leave it to go home. We know you will feel the same way once you've visited!

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2007

We chose the Fancy Gap area for its close proximity to our home in North Carolina. The lot on which we built the cabin was selected for its breathtaking views! It is also great that we are minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and we are really close and accessible to so many area attractions. The cabin is 25 minutes from Mount Airy, NC to the south (Andy Griffith's hometown) and 25 minutes from Galax, VA to the north (lots of antique stores and quaint shops). There are several wineries nearby, including Chateau Morrisette, West Wind Winery, Shelton Vineyards, Old North State Winery and Villa Appalacia. Mabry Mill is just a short scenic ride down the Parkway and the New River Trail State Park is only a short drive up I-77. 'Pilot's Perch'TM is located in an area in which you can always find something to do or you can just relax and enjoy doing nothing. The fact that all the roads leading to the cabin are paved is a definite plus.

'Pilot's Perch'TM has two large decks, both of which offer awesome views of the Piedmont and Pilot Mountain, the cabin's namesake. On clear days, we can actually see the tops of the skyscrapers in Winston-Salem, NC which are approximately 52 miles away. We have furnished the cabin with some really neat furniture and accessories that we hand picked because of the memories they evoke of our 'growing up' years. We have also tried to provide all the conveniences of home. Chances are, if you have it at home, you'll find it at 'Pilot's Perch'TM. The development in which the cabin is located has 2 ponds for our guests' enjoyment. (You should see the size of the catfish in one of them!) There is a covered bridge over a nearby stream with picnic tables, where visitors may enjoy a picnic lunch. We have waterfalls for you to enjoy climbing and it is an everyday occurrence to see wild turkeys, deer and other wildlife around the cabin and in the development. You might even spot a bear!

GREAT CABIN, WONDERFUL OWNERS!

  • 5 of 5
Can't say enough about Pilot's Perch. For the getaway weekend my wife and I had been looking forward to, it exceeded expectations. VRBO website information is spot-on, and the view is as good as advertised. Great hiking and wineries are only a short drive away, but it's difficult to leave such a beautiful location! Roxanne and Jim are very attentive, and really do care that you have a great time. Of the three cabins we've stayed at in the Fancy Gap area, this is definitely our favorite . . . we hope to return soon!

A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN ON EARTH!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had been looking for a "cabin in the mountains" for a long weekend get away. We found this place on line in December and booked it right away for April. My birthday is in March and his in April , so this was going to be our birthday present for each other. We asked some very dear friends to join us. We had the most amazing time and were in "awe" of the beauty & peacefulness of this cabin. We could not have asked or dreamed of a more perfect place. The owners detailed instructions and directions were perfect and extremely helpful! This cabin is beautiful beyond words, roomy, clean, comfortable with all the comforts of home as well at the most beautiful and amazing views that are like a little bit of heaven on earth. Can't wait to go back again, hopefully for a longer stay!

Owner's Response: MIssion accomplished! Happy guests who want to return for a future visit is our goal. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and all of the recent updates to "Pilots' Perch" cabin, including the gas fire pit on the covered deck, the new cable rails that make it seem as if nothing separates you from the view and the newly enclosed ends on the top deck that gives total privacy to our guests. We look forward to hearing from you about that "longer" return visit. Thanks again for choosing "Pilot's Perch" cabin.

FABULOUS PRIVATE MOUNTAIN GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
I took my husband here for a three-day relaxing birthday weekend and we really enjoyed the comforts of home in this tastefully-rustic cabin. There is SO much space to move around and layabout. Two full decks, a front porch - the private hot tub deck on the back with mountain views was our favorite. It extends from a lovely master bedroom suite that suited us perfectly. We drove down through Mt. Airy and hiked Pilot Mountain (which is visible from the cabin) and had a great day seeing all that the area has to offer. The kitchen was well-stocked with cooking tools / utensils and it was nice having some necessities provided like toilet paper, soap, etc. We will definitely be returning to visit as soon as we get the chance. Thanks for the games, too! We definitely made the best use of all that was offered.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you all enjoyed your stay at "Pilot's Perch" and your hike at Pilot Mountain. There are actually lots of hiking opportunities within a short distance of the cabin, including the development in which the cabin is located. We are also pleased that you found the amenities at the cabin to be all that you could hope for. We really do strive to provide such a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere at "Pilot's Perch" that you feel your stress melt away as soon as you open the door and enter the cabin. We will hope to hear from you again sometime soon regarding a return visit.

FIRST TIME AT PILOT'S PERCH

First time at Pilot's Perch
  • 5 of 5
Three women wanted to get away from the stress of life in DC. We weren't disappointed. The pictures can't quite convey the beauty of the house. It's solidly built and extremely well maintained. Bedrooms are amply separated for privacy, and beds are very comfortable with nice quality linens. The hot tub and accompanying views are sublime. The fireplace kept us cozy in January, as we watched movies on plush couches with recline features. We brought food with the intent to stay in, and the well appointed kitchen made creating meals an easy endeavor. The stars at night were breathtaking, and watching the valley below made us feel like we were in an aerie. The next time we stay, we'll add a day or two because a weekend didn't feel long enough!

Owner's Response: We're so glad that you all enjoyed your stay at Pilot's Perch and that you found the views to be as beautiful as described on our website. My favorite view outside the cabin is from the hot tub. I'm also glad that the kitchen was outfitted to meet your cooking needs. Pilot's Perch is truly the perfect place to get away from the stress and "busyness" of the city to relax. One of the best things about Pilot's Perch is that it is in a very private yet safe location so that even the girls can feel comfortable while enjoying a girls getaway! We look forward to having you visit again for a longer stay! Take care and thank you for choosing Pilot's Perch cabin.

A SECOND WEEK-END AT PILOT'S PERCH

A Second Week-end at Pilot's Perch
  • 5 of 5
My wife and I enjoyed our relaxing stay at Pilot's Perch so much that we had to do it again. The home and view is just as we remembered; very well kept, clean, appointed, awesome. This time we took in breakfast at the Hillsville Diner and, yes, they serve the best pancakes you will ever eat. Otherwise, we stayed in to catch up on a movie or two and relax in the hot tub. The owner's are great to work with. If you're looking to explore the area or simply get away for some private downtime, Pilot's Perch is likely where you'll want to be.

Owner's Response: We were excited to have you back for a return visit to "Pilot's Perch." And we really do appreciate your kind comments. We're glad you agree with us about the Hillsville Diner pancakes. The next time you come, y'all need to try out the new ice cream shop in Fancy Gap. Great addition to our recommended "eateries" list. We hope to hear from you about another return visit sometime soon. Thanks for choosing "Pilot's Perch."

SIMPLY AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
We rented the cabin to have some downtime and relax from our hectic lives, and I'll tell you what, that was just what we were able to do at Pilot's Perch. The cabin is amazing. The pictures really don't do the cabin justice. Right when you walk in you feel the comfy and coziness of the cabin. I really didn't want to leave the cabin at all. I love to cook and the kitchen really does have everything you will need. The beds are very soft and the pillows, fantastic!! The hot tub is phenomenal! And the view is breathtaking! I loved the upstairs bathroom with double sinks and huge jetted tub. I cannot think of one negative thing to say about the cabin. The cabin can be kid friendly as long as you bring a couple baby gates for the upstairs and downstairs. I have a one year old (He did not go with me this time) so I was sizing it up for kids, also.

I was a little hesitant to pay in full before getting to the cabin, but after speaking with Roxanne I was completely comfortable. Roxanne is such a sweetheart, and I am sure her husband is as well. Roxanne answered any questions that I had and they even have a welcome packet with so many suggestions on where to eat, what types of activities there are and the best part was how to work the hot tub. They cover everything you can think of in the packet.

We ventured out to Hillsville to the Food Lion a couple times and the people there are so nice. Really they were nice everywhere we went. They have anything that you could need food wise at Food Lion. From everyday meats, to Bison (Which was fantastic) to Lamb. We also made use out of the red box they have outside of Food Lion. We made a trip to Galax, my shopping hunger was getting the best of me. There are a couple of large antique shops (carrols consignment was where I found the best prices) and there is a large Carhartt store on the way to Galax. I wanted to go to Winston Salem, but we didn't want to drive an hour away, well, my boyfriend didn't want to drive an hour away.

This was the best trip we have taken together. We loved every second of it. If you are interested in this cabin, you must book it. You will not be let down. We are already looking forward to returning to Pilot's Perch.

Owner's Response: WOW! We are so appreciative of your great review of "Pilot's Perch" cabin. We try so hard to make sure our guests have a really nice cabin experience and it sounds like you did. The cabin is very close to some really unique shops and some delicious local eateries. Although lots of our guests tell us they prefer to stay in and cook so they don't have to leave the awesome view. We will be waiting to hear from you regarding a return visit. Maybe next time you will get to go to the local auction. That really is another fun thing to do and the prices are fantastic! Thank you again for the nice comments.
