High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Four Bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and 13' x 38' covered front porch

A cozy, vintage cabin, 2 miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway, with all the space and privacy you need. House is located approximately 100 yards off a paved road. Beautiful view of the stream-fed, one acre trout pond, as you pull in the driveway. Positioned on 12 acres mostly wooded with walking trails. Huge 38'x12' covered front porch. The wooded mountain slopes up behind the house and views of adjoining mountains from the front porch. Secluded and private, but convenient. Downtown Blowing Rock is 3.5 miles to the left, Boone is 3 miles to the right. There is an area for outdoor fires in the front yard of the house. There is also a fenced, open paddock with the pond if you bring your horses. Washer Dryer, Heat /AC, land-line phone, cable tv, wireless internet. Water is spring-fed from the mountain.

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.

Lovely Place

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place! Not far from Blowing Rock and Boone, but you feel away from it all, gorgeous pond to play on and listen to the rushing water. Roasted s'mores at night, watched hummingbirds from the amazing porch. Nice updates in the house, old world feel with modern convenience.

A winner!

  • 5 of 5

We are experienced VRBO users and Owl House may be our favorite yet. Overview is spot on but understated. Photos accurately depict the cabin and views. Perfect location between Blowing Rock and Boone and just minutes from Blue Ridge Parkway. Charming vintage cabin is warm and homey. Clean and very well stocked with everything one could possibly require. Plenty of outdoor space for our Standard Poodle to safely enjoy off leash time as well as enough groomed acreage for adults to walk off dinner! Fire pit is enjoyable with provided benches and wonderful view. Front porch time alone (including the ever present hummingbirds) was worth the trip. This is a great place to stay and relax as well as for visiting all of the area attractions (although we were reluctant to leave the front porch). A wonderful find. Owner (Wes) was responsive and reservations, directions, instructions and checkout were all handled smoothly. For certain we will be returning.

Great Snow vacation. Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

We drove from Florida for kids to experience snow. Wes, the owner was very easy to deal with and was prompt in responding to my questions. The cabin is very close to the Appalachian Ski resort and 45 min from beech and sugar mountains. The house had all the amenities you would need. It had a pond that we were not able to use because it was frozen. The property itself is large so you have some room to spread out. Very cute cabin in its decorations. Very close to all the stores like walmart, lowes etc. Also very easy drive to get to the cabin, no steep driveway or tricky roads. Our family enjoyed the cabin very much and hope to get back there soon.
