Why Michelle (Owner) chose McMillan Hidden Valley
We purchased the Hoot Owl because of the perfect location, beauty and private setting. We especially enjoy sharing our love for the area and what it has to offer. The Hoot Owl just minutes from Lake Lure and Chimney Rock State Park and 12 miles from Hendersonville, NC city limits.

From hiking, to relaxing in the hammock, or sitting by the fire with a good book the Hoot Owl is the perfect destination! Take in the local heritage, or raft down Green River with the family! Explore the Biltmore Estate or enjoy the many sights and sounds that the beautiful North Carolina Mountains have to offer all right from your doorstep.

Overall we loved the cabin. The WiFi goes out a lot. On vrbo website says stay two nights get it for $125 but they did not honor there price. So that was confusing. Vrbo says up to owner and owner says up to website. Overall the cabin was nice had everything you need.
Wonderful mountain getaway
Went for a girls getaway with my sister and this was the perfect house! Very close to some great wineries and less than an hour from downtown Asheville. The hot tub was the perfect end to our daily adventures!
Secluded and peaceful
My husband and I enjoyed the upstairs and just staying in and relaxing on the back deck playing Scabble. The cabin is so unique and very comfortable.
Exploring Ashville area
The booking process was very smooth and very easy. From seeing the property on vrbo to actual keys in hand. The owner was attentive and and pleasant to deal with. Very happy with our experience all around. Ashville and surrounding experience was above and beyond our expectations and we are looking forward to visit and explore again.
Authentic mountain getaway
The cabin is perfectly cozy and charming and the location is perfect! Loved it!
Adorable cabin with all amenities, covered in owls!!
The only negative I would say would be the parking situation. It's difficult to get in and out of the property. Otherwise, the furniture was very comfortable. There were plenty of tvs during the little down time we had, and the jacuzzi was a tremendous hit with the children.
Thanks for your review! Im happy you enjoyed the new hot tub and furniture. I’m sorry the parking gave you trouble. I’m not sure why, because there’s plenty of parking down below if you don’t have AWD or 4WD. We are regrading the driveway next week due to all the rain we’ve had coming down the mountain.
Stay at the 'Hoot Owl' and enjoy a private, rustic and very charming cabin fully equipped with all the amenities and comforts of home! The Hoot Owl is adjacent to an extensive trail system great for hiking and enjoying the outdoors. Take a hike to the top of the mountain for a panoramic mountain view; on your way, walk past Hungry River located just across the road from the Hoot Owl. Enjoy the fully equipped game room, large outside deck or sit by the large picture window and watch all that nature has to offer. Walk to the community chapel and attend Sunday morning services during summer season. Open your windows and enjoy a peaceful sleep with the sound of the rumbling river, or sit by the fireplace with a good book. The Hoot Owl offers endless family fun and enjoyment along with quiet hours of just pure relaxation! There's even a Certified Neuromassage Therapist offering Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Thai Massage, Ashiatsu Massage, Prenatal Massage, Hot Stone Massage, and Therapeutic/Sports Massage all within walking distance, just what the doctor ordered!
On your drive to the Hoot Owl, you will experience 'Apple Country' as Henderson County is the largest apple-producing county in North Carolina and grows 65 percent of the apples in the state. Today Henderson County and Edneyville is home to approximately 200 apple growers. There are about 5000 acres of apple trees planted in Henderson County. The apple harvest season runs from late August to late October.
For wine enthusiasts, the Hoot Owl is located just minutes from two local 'family owned' wineries. Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards and Burntshirt Vineyards, both family-owned with tasting rooms and wine available for purchase. Both wineries enjoy panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Sample the many varieties from wine grapevines, grown on the vineyards at elevations of 2,300 and 3,000 feet along with cool nights produce some of the best wine producing grapes in the country!
During your stay at the Hoot Owl, you will want to take 15 - 20 minute drive to Lake Lure. The lake is approximately 720 acres, with about twenty-one miles of shoreline. National Geographic has called Lake Lure one of the most beautiful man-made lakes in the world!
Lake Lure sits in the heart of Hickory Nut Gorge and its picturesque setting offers numerous photo opportunities. East of Asheville, the crystal clear Rocky Broad River tears its way in a series of rapids down through Hickory Nut Gap.
