Great family vacation place.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful view from the spacious porch! Good size, well stocked cabin in great location halfway between Bowling Rock and Boone. Kids loved throwing rocks into the pond in front of cabin. Great place for a family vacation!

We stayed at the Owl House while our daughter competed at the Blowing Rock Charity Horse Show and couldn't have asked for any better! The house is absolutely adorable! It's location was so convenient for us as we were back and forth from the horse show grounds! Everything from

booking this house to checking in/out was so easy and simple!! Will def be looking to return again!! Thank you to Wes for sharing his "lil piece of Heaven"!

Repeat Winner!

  • 5 of 5

We first visited Owl House in June 2014 (see our more detailed 5 Star review submitted 6/28/14), "A Winner"). A great place to stay when visiting Blowing Rock. Already planning our next visit. Can't go wrong with this VRBO. Wes, the owner, could not be more accommodating.

Wonderful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The Owl house was just as described. It accommodated our 8 adults and 2 children with no problem. Great layout and great location. Plenty of fire wood. Excellent communication with owner.

Perfect Home with Perfect Owners!

  • 5 of 5

When you think of a "mountain cabin" - the Owl House not only is the top example of that but much more! All the modern conveniences with all the Blowing Rock charm! I really cannot say enough about how homey, well equipped, clean & just how cute this house is! It is so hard to write in a few sentences how much thought the owners have put into making this rental house an actual home away from home - without breaking the bank! Owners are very responsive & extremely easy to work with! One more thing - this is a REAL review...the owner, Wes, has my permission to give out my email address to anyone who wants to hear first hand just how great the Owl House is inside & out!

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Home away from home!! My family LOVES this place. As soon as we walked through the front door, we felt welcomed and at home. It's cozy, quaint, and well stocked with the necessities. The children loved their rooms, hiking the land, and sledding!! As my daughter said,"it was a magical Thanksgiving" with the 5" of snow that came down. For this family that was skeptical of renting a home, we look forward to returning to The Owl House again for the best R&R.
