Fancy Gap Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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


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. The phrase we hear over and over from our guests is "it's a million dollar view"!

'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!

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.

Excellent, relaxing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely amazing. It's comfortable AND beautifully decorated. The lower deck with the hot tub and sectional around the fire pit was absolute bliss. My husband and I wanted a low key vacation with our two kids and this house was just the ticket. We'll definitely be back!

Owner's Response: We added the sectional sofa on the lower deck in the fall of 2014. It makes the lower deck seem like an additional room at the cabin. And it gives new meaning to the term "lounging" by the fire (gas fire pit to be exact). The sofa allows you to enjoy the view and be comfortable all at the same time. The fact that it is on covered deck so that it can be used even in inclement weather is a definite bonus! We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay. The fact that you would want to come back for another visit is even better Thank you again for your kind words.

The PERFECT get away!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Pilot's Perch and surely will not be our last. The view is absolutely amazing and we highly recommend making a trip during the fall, when the leaves are at peak. It is just AWESOME!! Coffee on the deck, gas fire pit, watching the sunrise, it doesn't get any better. During our visit we explored, making a trip to Pilot Mountain and Mt. Airy. The rest of our stay, we cooked and spent time at the cabin relaxing. It's hard to leave the view and the cozy, well kept, peace of heaven that Pilot's Perch is! Our stay wasn't nearly long enough. If you're looking for a place to get away and leave the rest of the world behind for a while, Pilot's Perch is the spot! We could go on and on, but just know, you will not be disappointed. We loved every minute!!!

Owner's Response: We are so excited that you all "got" the just enjoying the cabin part of it. We have tried really hard to create a warm and inviting get away. And it really excites us when our guests express that they enjoy the cabin so much they didn't really even want to leave to go do other things. Although "Pilot's Perch" is located very close to lots of area attractions, the best part of staying at "Pilot's Perch" is staying at "Pilot's Perch." I mean, where else can you enjoy awesome views, frequent sightings of wildlife, comfortable furnishings, cozy fires, a relaxing soak in the hot tub and great meals cooked on the gas grill all without leaving home - at "Pilot's Perch", of course. We are so glad you all enjoyed your stay. We look forward to having you back again for another visit.

Perfect honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed Pilot's Perch for our honeymoon, it was perfect! The descriptions and pictures of the house are spot on, it is exactly as described with no surprises. The first few days we stayed we were socked in with fog, and didn't get to enjoy the beautiful view - but since Pilot's Perch is such a special place we were able to enjoy ourselves anyhow. The hot tub, indoor and outdoor gas logs, and coziness of the cabin all made for a special honeymoon. Then, when the fog lifted - wow - the view! We couldn't believe it. We look forward to visiting the cabin again and have bragged about it to all of our friends. Pilot's Perch far exceeded our expectations for a honeymoon. This is a special place that I know anyone who visits will love!

Owner's Response: We are always so honored for guests to choose to celebrate "special occasions" such as a honeymoon at "Pilot's Perch" cabin. We have tried to create a cozy and relaxing escape from the busyness of everyday life. It sounds like you all figured out the relaxation and enjoyment of just "being" during your honeymoon stay at the cabin. Yes, the fog can be very dense. But you are absolutely right, when it lifts the views are absolutely amazing and well worth the wait. We look forward to having you back celebrate some anniversaries. Take care and thanks for choosing "Pilot's Perch."

Love this cabin!

This was our first trip to Pilots Perch and we enjoyed it so much we have already stayed again! The view...I cannot even put into words the beauty. My husband and I were able to "unplug" and relax with no plans or agenda. Very clean and modern. The upgrades to the deck railing and the downstairs porch were amazing!!! I enjoyed reading and sitting by the fire on the porch. We thoroughly enjoyed driving into neighboring towns for great food and sightseeing. The kitchen had all necessary ultensils and appliances for all our cooking needs!! We truly felt at home!

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.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that your honeymoon was everything you wanted it to be and more! Pilot's Perch cabin is definitely the place to be if you are looking for a romantic setting. 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.

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!
