Overview

Fancy Gap Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (4 Guest Maximum)

EASTER 2015 STILL AVAILABLE. CALL NOW TO RESERVE YOUR ROMANTIC GET-A-WAY!

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.

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Fancy Gap

We chose the Fancy Gap area for its close proximity to our home. 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.

What makes this cabin unique

'Pilot's Perch'TM has two large decks, both of which offer amazing 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 unique 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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Words cannot describe the beauty and comfort that your cabin have offered us while we were here! It is absolutely perfect! What a place for a little R & R! And the view...undescribeable! We'll definitely be back! Thanks for letting us share your beautiful cabin.

An unforgettable honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here at pilot's perch for our honeymoon and it was nothing but perfect. It was beautiful inside and out. From the wonderful outside landscaping to the beautiful inside of the cabin. For us it was the little things that made it so wonderful. Most places have empty cabinets and empty drawers, here it was 100% different. Most anything you need they have for you. Plus cuddling on the couch next to the fire place, jumping in the hot tub and watch snow fall, and just enjoying a good movie inside makes it a wonderful stay. Will definitely go back.

And it sounds like you agree! It was also nice to hear that you all appreciated the effort we have put into making sure we provide our guests with all the amenities you have at home. We look forward to hearing from you again regarding a return visit. Take care and congratulations again on your recent marriage.

EVEN BETTER THAN BEFORE!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Pilot's Perch for our 34th Anniversary. This was our second trip to Pilot's Perch and I will have to say I didn't think it could get any better from the first time. But I was wrong. The changes that Clint and Roxanne made between our first visit and this one took a cabin that was already excellent and made it even better. We just loved the new railing system on the decks, it really helps enhance the beautiful view. We put the gas fire pit and outdoor furniture to good use, it was one of our favorite spots. The Wi-Fi was also a welcomed addition. as usual the hot tub and night time views were splendid.
You couldn't ask for better cabin or for better hosts than Clint and Roxanne. Thanks for sharing your little "Peace" of Heaven with us. We will be back!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed our upgrades. The sectional sofa and fire pit on the lower covered deck make it seem as if there is another room added onto the cabin. We, too, thoroughly enjoy sitting out there - and the sound of the new wind chimes certainly enhances the experience. Your compliments are most appreciated as is the fact that you are return guests. Thanks so much for remembering "Pilot's Perch" cabin. Come back soon!

Awesome .. breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Pilot’s Perch was nothing short of magical. In every way, this beautiful house, the 50 mile view, the autumn colors by far exceeded our expectations. The cabin was spotless when we arrived. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need, the hot tub and gas fire pit were a real hit. We are a retired couple and went with another retired couple and the layout of the house was just perfect for us. The bedrooms with lots of space were warm and cozy.
The owners were so very helpful with lots of information about what to do locally. Were loved dining at Chateau Morrissette and Smokehouse Restaurant in Galax. Drives on the Blueridge Parkway were awesome.
If you are looking for a mountain vacation, I would say look no farther. You have found the perfect place. We highly recommend Pilot’s Perch.

Owner's Response: We loved your text that you sent us saying that y'all couldn't stop talking about your stay at "Pilot's Perch" the whole way home! That made us feel that all our hard work trying to make the cabin cozy and comfortable was successful. And we are so glad that you found everything to your satisfaction. Our recent upgrades to the cabin, including the privacy walls on the decks, the new composite upper deck and stainless steel cable railing system, the fire pit, sectional sofa and decorative accessories such as the wall phone, pot belly stove and signage by the hot tub all seem to have contributed to an enhanced "Pilot's Perch" experience. We really hope you will return for another visit sometime soon! Thanks for your kind words!

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
WOW! Pilot's Perch is absolutely gorgeous and perfectly appointed...from the spectacular views to the many amenities of the cabin. It was beautifully decorated, but yet felt very comfortable! Roxanne is wonderfully accommodating and such a pleasure to deal with. On our short visit we biked the New River Trail State Park and the Virginia Creeper Trail (a must do if you love the outdoors). The many features we love about this place was the close proximity to the Parkway, sunrises & sunsets, jaw-dropping views, the fire pit for making S'mores, morning coffee in the cedar rocking chairs and of course the hot tub after long days of cycling. We are already planning our next visit, thank you so much for sharing your gem with us!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your great comments! We are truly overjoyed when our guests let us know that our efforts to make "Pilot's Perch" a truly special place for a romantic getaway have been successful. And we, too, really enjoy the fire pit and the new wind chimes. We're glad to hear you're planning a return visit. Next time you can enjoy the sectional sofa that we recently added to the lower deck - makes relaxing by the fire pit even more comfortable and cozy! We are continually looking for ways to improve our guests mountain cabin experience. Thanks again for choosing "Pilot's Perch" and for your kind comments.

Breathtaking View , Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5
My wife and 2 of our friends were looking for a private getaway and happened to stumble onto Pilot's Perch. It is hard to come up with words to describe the cabin and the view other than WOW! There was nothing more perfect than sitting on the deck in the morning having coffee and watching the sun rise. I have to give credit to Roxanne and Clint as they have furnished the cabin with all the amenities you need to make your stay wonderful. We could not have asked for better hosts. They answered any questions we had in detail. We made daily trips to Hillsville, Galax, and Mt. Airy. There is something to be said about southern hospitality. Everyone we met treated us like family. If you are looking for the perfect getaway choose Pilot's Perch.

Owner's Response: WOW! Such a great review! Clint and I are so glad when nice folks like you all get to enjoy a stay at "Pilot's Perch" cabin. And southern hospitality is exactly what we always hope to extend to our guests. Coffee, food and just plain relaxing is better when you're looking at a view like the one you see from both decks of Pilot's Perch. We hope you'll come back for another visit. Just keep in mind, there is something to do in every season (ie. festivals, concerts, sightseeing, winery tours, antiquing, etc.) or you can enjoy doing nothing at all - which is my personal favorite. Thanks again for your kind words!

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!
