Overview

Fancy Gap Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

This cabin is located in a private wooded area, and has spectacular views of Mount Airy, Pilot Mountain, and the piedmont area of North Carolina. Night time will leave you breathless with the views of far off vistas, and the beauty of the wildlife and woods surrounding this cool and quiet mountain cabin will make for pleasurable days.

Enjoy the view and the scenery from the fully screened back porch, and enjoy the daytime trips into the mountain towns to find adventure in the parks, rivers, shops, restaurants, music centers, local festivals, fiddlers' conventions, wineries, and antique car shows.

You might decide to visit the Blue Ridge Music Center, Mabry Mills, or raft the rapids at the New River Trail State Park. Whether you decide to stay in or go out, you will be glad you stayed at 'Fancy That.'

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for saving our vacation. Our original destination was overbooked and I was devastated. But the owner arranged our stay with you and we were quite pleased with our accomodations here. Beautiful place! Was extremely pleased with the screened in porch. [Autumn] is beautiful here and the view from Fancy That was spectacular. Thank you so much!

My family has stayed here several times now & we keep coming back for more. If you are looking for a peaceful getaway this is definitely it. The view from the screened porch is amazing. The owner is very accommodating & a true pleasure to work with. We will be back!

Just Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Fancy That over the 4th of July weekend and watched HOURS of fireworks down in the Piedmont at night! The view is fascinating, watching weather systems move over the Piedmont below. You are usually above the showers, and can see wonderful rainbows! Add to that the quiet, cool woods around you and the bug free screened porch and what more could you ask?!! Snoozing in the big recliner with the breeze blowing through the house is next to heaven! Just minutes to the Parkway, and about an hour to Chateau Morrisette with Mabry Mill at 45 minutes along the way. Go the other way on the Parkway to Blue Ridge Music Center. In Fancy Gap, the Lake View Restaurant is good ole time food, and on the other side of the Parkway bridge is a great little sandwich shop tucked back in the woods at the antique shop. Down 52 towards Mt. Airy is a little town called CANA that has many interesting shops, produce stands, and a great restaurant called "The Hungry Farmer" on the left. The owner of Fancy That is most gracious and accommodating. We did meet her, and she is just as charming in person! Wonderful time up there, and we WILL be going back!

Birthday and NASCAR weekend - March 28th through April 1st, 2014

  • 5 of 5

It was still cold in Virginia the last week in March but we stayed in on Saturday(my birthday), watched movies played cards and enjoyed the no cell phone experience. From the cabin we traveled on Sunday to Martinsville for a NASCAR race and on Monday we took a walk and enjoyed the views from the porch. The views are breath taking. Great time had by all!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a great time for your birthday! It is a lovely cabin that offers a great view of the NC piedmont and is a private getaway in the middle of everything! For those of our guests who visit and find they may not have cell service in the house because of the location, the cabin has a phone with unlimited US calling, and wifi for other communication needs. Thank you again and we hope to see you again soon!

Just What We Wanted!

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice get-a-way for our weekend with friends.....relaxing, beautiful view, and easy to get to. The peaceful setting was just what we were looking for but not too far away from civilization. We recommend this to anyone not searching for "night life".

The perfect cabin

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful weekend at Fancy That. The cabin was located at the end of the road on a private wooded lot. The cabin was as described and better. The view from the back porch is just fantastic. We really enjoyed sitting in the rocking chairs while drinking our morning coffee and looking out over the mountain watching the sun rise. I would recommend this cabin to friends, family or anyone else looking for a quite private getaway. We are already making plans for the spring.

This mountaintop cabin is located in the forests of the Blue Ridge Parkway, and its open vistas overlook most of the piedmont valley of North Carolina.

From this private location, you will be close to many of the treasures of the Blue Ridge Parkway, such as Mount Airy, NC (which is more popularly known as Mayberry, USA), many music centers and festivals throughout the area, local wineries, great shopping, and dining for all tastes.

This cabin is the best of both worlds: it can be your romantic getaway, or there are many available activities and attractions for a busy family.

For families needing more room, you may wish to also rent my other home which is less than a city block away from this one, Homeaway listing #905247.
