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.

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.

True Mountain Getaway

Everything was as it is described and then some. The setting is beautiful and the cabin is clean and well-maintained. If you are looking for a place to get away from it all -- then this is the place! We look forward to returning.

Beautiful, quiet, and refreshing.

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed here twice and will hopefully be back many more times. The music of the river and the birds are a perfect backdrop to the beautiful deck views. The large yard was perfect for my sin and the dogs to run around in, and the river provided tons if fun for them as well. We all enjoyed spending evenings watching the sun set and the moon rise above the beautiful mountain backdrop before sitting around the outdoor fireplace to play games and relax. In short the house and surroundings are relaxing and beauitful. We loved it here!

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!
