There are two spacious covered wrap around decks to enjoy the mountain views and the sound of the gentle flowing river. With access to the New River (second oldest river in the world) you can launch a canoe, go tubing, or just float down the beautiful scenic river. You are nearby River Camp USA and riverside canoe rentals. Other attractions nearby are winery tours, Mount Jefferson State Park, Stone Mountain State Park, and Grayson Highland State Park.

About Roger and Mary Manning

We purchased River Perch cabin as our personal vacation home in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We named our home River Perch because the cabin literally sits perched atop the mountain side offering beautiful views of the river and mountains. It is our peaceful and stress free destination to relax and unwind. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Roger and Mary Manning purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Roger and Mary Manning chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

We had looked at several homes in nearby towns of the Blue Ridge Mountains and this actually was the very last property on our list.

Once we stepped on the porches and walked to the back of the cabin , we just stood and admired the beautiful views of the river and mountains. We knew this was the one for us.

We love the privacy of the cabin , but also the security of being in a gated community. We also chose this area because our travel time from home is less than 5 hrs.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin is the perfect private getaway to unwind and relax and to just take in the beautiful views. It is also located in close proximity to several nearby towns and attractions for those who would like to get away for the day. There are canoe & tube rentals nearby. state parks to visit, winery tours , historic sites, quaint shops to browse in, Ashe County Cheese Factory and store in West Jefferson, farmers markets nearby, and many other attractions.

Very impressed

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The cabin exceeded our expectations in both the view and the comfort. We felt completely secluded during our stay but when we needed something we didn't have to go far. I would highly recommend staying here and I intend to come back! Loved it!

Christmas at River Perch!

  • 5 of 5

My family spent Christmas at the River Perch cabin and we had a wonderful time. The cabin was even decorated for Christmas. The cabin was perfect for three introverts and one extrovert, as there were plenty of places to escape into privacy. The mountain and New River views were spectacular from the deck. We recommend River Perch without reservation.

Beautfiul cabin with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful, clean, and had everything we needed! We sat out on the porch in the evenings enjoying the view of mountains and the New RIver just below. Mary was also an amazing host. She quickly answered questions we had before and during our stay, as well as shipped a pair of shoes we had left behind! During our visit we went to Mt. Rogers, hiked along the AT trail with wild horses and gorgeous views for miles. We also went into Sparta for dinner one night. Thank you Mary and Roger sharing your cabin retreat!

Excellent! Amazing views! Beautiful cabin! Perfect for 6 adults to cook, sleep, & have fun.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was exactly as promoted. It was so comfortable that we felt just like we were at home.The view was just breathtaking! So blessed to experience the mighty works of our God's awesome creation! Kitchen was perfect (we cooked breakfast and dinner each day!). The sleeping was arranged perfectly for 6 adults. This was a family trip and we just had a blast at night eating and playing games! We barely even watched the TV. The WiFi worked great! The décor was very inspirational! Mary was great to work with. Would definitely book again and will recommend to friends and other family members. Thank you Mary for making this special time such a pleasant experience for us.

The cabin was beautiful, clean, and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the cabin. The upgrades are impressive and they layout is great and offers plenty of space and privacy. The views were perfect and the community peaceful. The only issue we had is the presence of wasps and stink bugs which appear to have been in the fireplace. The owner was informed and immediately sent over a can of wasp spray although we spent Sat night running from bugs. Overall it was great and even with the critters I still give the home a 5.

We had the best view of the mountains and river from this cabin! Sitting on one of the wrap around porches or viewing from inside gave us breathtaking vistas.

This cabin is spacious and clean and lovely. The owners have lovingly decorated and furnished it to feel warm and welcoming.

The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook except the groceries. There are herbs and spices, a waffle maker , a slow cooker and a large assortment of dishes and pots and pans. The granite countertops add a nice touch. There's a very nice gas grill on the porch,too.

There's plenty of room for 6 adults to have their separate sleeping areas (3 floors) and their own bath, plus,a half bath . It was nice to have a nice washer and dryer in the laundry room .

There are lots of games , including a wi system. Netflix is available on the lower level.

The owners have been friendly and gave clear instructions and directions. I can't imagine finding a more lovely cabin (more like a chalet) in this beautiful area of North Carolina.
