About Roy and Debbie Perron

I have fond memories growing up in Maine where we had a cottage on a lake. We had a lot of family holidays at that cottage. And then my family moved to Florida. My girlfriend's family had a cabin in Highlands, NC, so when my husband and I needed a vacation, that's where we rented, and after that we were both hooked on North Carolina. After going a few more times, we started looking for our own cabin. My husband was in the construction business and can fix just about anything. I went to Florida State University and majored in Housing & Interior Design, so we make a good team when it comes to providing a well-maintained and decorated cabin.

Roy and Debbie Perron purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Roy and Debbie Perron chose Lake Santeetlah

We bought our second cabin that was originally called 'The Chalet' from an auction ad that my husband saw in our local newspaper. After purchasing it, we have vacationed there for over 18 years to get out of the Florida heat. We loved the beautiful weather and mountain views so much that when the Mountain Retreat became available we decided to purchase it for additional family gatherings. And then a few years later, the Ridge Haven became available. Everybody we knew or worked with wanted to rent the cabins, so that's how we got started. We love this County with it's country roads and laid back feeling. It is so peaceful and quiet here. Maybe an owl at night and sighting of hummingbirds during the day. It's a great place to live or visit.

What makes this cabin unique

Our private road and the hiking trail is a great place to walk our dogs, oh and the cats, too. The weather is just like being in air-conditioning in the summer and it's so brisk in the Spring and Fall. The foliage is beautiful any time of the year, even after the leaves have fallen. And the locals are so friendly, always waving as they pass by. There are so many nearby outdoor activities, weekly social benefits, arts and craft events, mountain music & heritage festivals and three pristine lakes (Fontana, Santeetlah & Cheoah) for all types of water adventures and fishing. The cabin is a great place to come back to after a fun day riding the roads or hiking the trails or just hang out here all day and do nothing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a pleasure to finally meet you both. Glad Bob is feeling better so you could finally take your vacation. Thank you for the nice review and next years reservation.

Take care,

Roy & Debbie

Comfortable and peaceful place to stay in the mountains. The cabin had everything we needed. For us, there is no need to look for any other place to stay when we return to this area.

Roy & Debbie are the best people we have met in a long time and we really appreciated how important it seemed to them that we had the best experience possible.

Had a blast during our 3 day stay. Took our sportscar and took advantage of the Dragon, Moonshiner 28 and Parkway. Cabin was convenient to all. Views from the deck were great. Cabin was well appointed and clean. Roy and Debbie were great hosts. We will stay again.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay with our children and dog at Ridge Haven. The view from the cabin is beautiful. We did struggle with the steep driveway at first due to rainy weather(We are from New Orleans and not accustomed to driving in mountains). We were able to enjoy canoeing on Fontana Lake and a day if tubing at Deep Creek- we had an amazing time. We should have booked a few more days, as I'm sure there was a lot more to experience. Debbie and Ron were great hosts, bringing us a chewy for our dog and some lovely handmade soaps from the area.

Debbie and Roy greeted us when we arrived like we were family. They made us feel right at home. They live just up the road and are very friendly and great neighbors. They are always available to make recommendations for places to go and activities. The go above and beyond to see that we have everything we need. The property is very comfortable, well kept and maintained with a beautifully landscaped area. The view from the deck is spectacular. We will definitely be going back.
