High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

The OWL'S NEST cabin nestled in the heart of North Carolina's beautiful 'BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS' overlooking the North Fork of the 'NEW RIVER'. A short distance from Boone, Blowing Rock, W. Jefferson & Mt. City TN.

Our appropriately titled Owl's Nest cabin is the ideal 'VACATION SPOT', with gorgeous mountain and river views. The 'BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS' are beautiful in every season, each one presenting it's own array of events, places to visit and things to do and see. A getaway at the Owl's Nest is sure to catch you up on that much needed R&R, or just provide a quiet place to escape from the hustle and bustle while still being within driving distance of a variety of activities.

About Glenn Creech

Kathleen & I live and work in Charlotte NC but enjoy the piece & quiet the Owls Nest has to offer. I was raised in eastern Kentucky and have always been drawn to the mountains. We were fortunate to find this property and enjoy taking family & friends when the opportunity arises. I don't think anyone can find a more relaxing rental in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Glenn Creech purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Glenn Creech chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

The Owls Nest is located on 5 acres and has trees behind the cabin and the river running through the front yard. The views are wonderful and the sound of the river, birds and wind in the trees is soothing to the soul!!

What makes this cabin unique

The Owls Nest is the perfect location to get away and relax without being to far from civilization if you choose.

A large new covered porch with fireplace makes Owls Nest more enjoyable even through the coolest months.

WOW!!!! What a beautiful place inside and out. It has everything U need. We enjoyed grilling, eating on porch , sight and sound of river. WE were close enough to visit Mt. Jefferson Park and Grayson Highland Park Va. Love walking on trails. Thank you very much for getting quiet, quality time together.

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Even though it rained all weekend, we had a lovely "staycation" in the Owl's Nest cabin. It had everything we needed (including separate rooms for our teenage daughters!), and the setting is GORGEOUS. Our dog had a good time too! We'd like to go back in the summer when we can enjoy the river more. The owner was informative and considerate. A+ experience.

Heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place for a Mother/Daughter weekend.. What a perfect place to relax and spend breakfast on the nice covered porch overlooking a fantastic view, with the sounds of the river and the song birds singing was so peaceful.. The nights on the porch with the fireplace was so perfect.. Couldn't have picked a better place.. We will be back.

A little slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was absolutely adorable and is set on one of the most gorgeous pieces of property! We enjoyed fishing and playing in the river as well as playing on the beautiful lawn. We spent most of our time on the covered porch and on the cool evenings we enjoyed roasting marshmallows in the outdoor fireplace. The house and yard were clean and well maintained. I could not have asked for a more perfect mountain getaway for my family with young children!

Absolutely loved this cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a weekend getaway and got much more! We brought our dogs with us and I believe that they had as much of a good time as we did! We enjoyed fishing in the stream, quite walks on the property, and just plain sitting on the covered porch and enjoying the view! We will definitely stay here again!

Loved this place. Quiet, private, and beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. The location is beautiful. It's quiet and private. Another house is nearby, but far enough off and set so you don't really notice at all. We brought our two dogs and and they loved it, too. When we got home, I think the dogs were the most disappointed not to still be at the cabin! It's off the highway so you don't have to stress constantly they will run out and get hit by a car. Since there is wifi, our teenagers were also happy with it. Also, the outdoor fireplace and huge porch were GREAT. The owner was good to work with, and we had no trouble at all. We'll be going back.
