We took our mother here to celebrate Mother's Day and had an amazing weekend. Owl's Roost was in a perfect location for time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and really focus on quality family time. The open floor plan of the main level is perfect for lots of conversation, while the other two levels provide perfect space for privacy when needed. Plenty of opportunity for adventures within driving distance (don't miss the beautiful falls nearby!). The home was very clean and nicely appointed. Mom is already planning next years visit!
I have had the opportunity to stay here on a couple of occasions. Very quiet and peaceful. On a clear night, you can see more stars than ever. We had bears one evening walk through the front yard. I saw deer down the street near the barn. I saw lots of wild turkey throughout the neighborhood. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area of Black Mountain, Asheville, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We went hiking around Montreat, Pisgah National Forest, and the parkway. Shopping is always good in Black Mountain and Asheville. Not too far from Lake Lure and Chimney Rock to explore. Straight Away Cafe and Pub is close by and good food and live music. Also family friendly.
Beautiful home in a quiet, scenic area! This is the place to be if you want to relax. The wide open space is great for families with kids or a group of friends. The five bedrooms accommodate many sleeping arrangements. Spacious kitchen for cooking and grocery store in close proximity. The roads are wide and secluded for walking, biking, corn hole and more. Delicious restaurants nearby and close to Asheville for shopping and touring. Can't wait to get back!
Last weekend, I had the distinct pleasure of retreating to the private, peaceful sanctuary of Owl's Roost in Black Mountain, NC. This gorgeous, log home was immaculately clean with gleaming wood floors; comfy and tasteful furniture; and was equipped with every amenity for which I could have hoped! The floor plan of this home allowed for plenty of privacy when needed, but the spacious common living area and child-friendly basement space allowed our group to enjoy quality time together as well! After a scrumptious dinner at the Black Mountain Bistro, the owner of the property warmly welcomed us and tended to our every need! Breakfast at the Black Mountain Biscuit Company filled our spirits as well as our bellies with the largest, most savory homemade biscuits we've ever tasted! A mid-afternoon hike along the ridge provided breathtaking views and refreshing, crisp mountain breezes. The highlight meal of our trip however, was dinner at the Straightaway Cafe - a true delight which engaged all of our senses with comfortable tables, live music, and savory flavors of high country comfort foods! If you're searching for the perfect spot for a family getaway, small group retreat, or a cozy place to cuddle up to someone special, I highly recommend Owl's Roost as your place to stay; savor the special memories you're sure to make! We will definitely be back!
