West Jefferson cabin description

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.

The 'BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS' are beautiful in every season, each one presenting it's own array of events, places to visit and things to do and see. A getaway at the Owl's Nest is sure to catch you up on that much needed R&R, or just provide a quiet place to escape from the hustle and bustle while still being within driving distance of a variety of activities.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: 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.

              Why the Owner Chose West Jefferson:
              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!!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              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.
