What a view! And it just got even better with the addition of new stainless steel cable deck rails that give an almost totally unobstructed view of the Piedmont and valley below - no wooden pickets or rails to get in the way!
'Pilot's Perch'TM is the perfect log cabin rental for your romantic mountain get-away or vacation.
Relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the Blue Ridge Mountains in this charming and tastefully decorated cabin with vaulted ceilings and a wall of windows and glass doors from which to experience the amazing mountain views. The phrase we hear over and over from our guests is "it's a million dollar view"!
'Pilot's Perch'TM sits atop the mountain, in a beautiful setting, away from the hustle and bustle, but within a short distance to area attractions. Located just off Highway 52, approximately 3.5 miles from Mile Marker 199 of the Blue Ridge Parkway; this log cabin home is furnished with everything you need for rest and relaxation.
Curl up on the comfy sofa or love seat, both of which offer recliners, in front of our stone fireplace with inviting gas logs. Relax in the Jacuzzi tub. If it's the outdoors you love, grab a seat in an old timey cedar rocking chair on one of the two spacious mountain view decks or front porch and take in the breathtaking view of Pilot Mountain, the valley below and a long-range view of the Piedmont. This cabin boasts a wide open panoramic view. An added bonus is that there's always a breeze.
Enjoy a soak in the 'oh-so-relaxing' bubbling hot tub and let the water wash away the tensions of the city. Cuddle in front of the gas lit fire pit on a covered deck. Wake up snuggling under a handmade quilt in a warm and cozy bed with luxurious linens and pillowtop mattress to the sounds of birds and sights of deer and wild turkeys as close as your own front yard. Step out onto a deck to sip your coffee as you take in the gorgeous colors of the season. Spend the afternoon fishing in one of the two ponds in our development, enjoy a picnic beside a covered bridge, hike nearby trails, climb waterfalls or just relax and do nothing.
Motorcyclists and bikers will appreciate the security of the garage and the paved driveways. Senior citizens will appreciate the ease of accessibility; only two steps up and you're on the front porch which leads directly into the main living area of the cabin.
This Fancy Gap cabin has it all!
NO PETS! NO SMOKING! NO EXCEPTIONS! MUST BE 24 YEARS OLD OR OLDER TO RENT.

About the owner: We built “Pilot’s Perch”TM log cabin as our personal vacation home in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We named the cabin after Pilot Mountain, which both decks face, and the fact that the cabin appears to literally “perch” on the side of our mountain lot. 'Pilot's Perch'TM is our home away from home. It has given us a peaceful and stress free destination at which to relax and unwind. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. The cabin is beautifully furnished and decorated with all the conveniences of home and we continually update and add amenities to enhance our guests' mountain experience. The only negative thing we have discovered about “Pilot’s Perch'TM, is having to leave it to go home. We know you will feel the same way once you've visited!
Why the Owner Chose Fancy Gap: We chose the Fancy Gap area for its close proximity to our home. The lot on which we built the cabin was selected for its breathtaking views! It is also great that we are minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and we are really close and accessible to so many area attractions. The cabin is 25 minutes from Mount Airy, NC to the south (Andy Griffith's hometown) and 25 minutes from Galax, VA to the north (lots of antique stores and quaint shops). There are several wineries nearby, including Chateau Morrisette, West Wind Winery, Shelton Vineyards, Old North State Winery and Villa Appalacia. Mabry Mill is just a short scenic ride down the Parkway and the New River Trail State Park is only a short drive up I-77. 'Pilot's Perch'TM is located in an area in which you can always find something to do or you can just relax and enjoy doing nothing. The fact that all the roads leading to the cabin are paved is a definite plus.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: 'Pilot's Perch'TM has two large decks, both of which offer amazing views of the Piedmont and Pilot Mountain, the cabin's namesake. On clear days, we can actually see the tops of the skyscrapers in Winston-Salem, NC which are approximately 52 miles away. We have furnished the cabin with some really unique furniture and accessories that we hand picked because of the memories they evoke of our 'growing up' years. We have also tried to provide all the conveniences of home. Chances are, if you have it at home, you'll find it at 'Pilot's Perch'TM. The development in which the cabin is located has 2 ponds for our guests' enjoyment. (You should see the size of the catfish in one of them!) There is a covered bridge over a nearby stream with picnic tables, where visitors may enjoy a picnic lunch. We have waterfalls for you to enjoy climbing and it is an everyday occurrence to see wild turkeys, deer and other wildlife around the cabin and in the development. You might even spot a bear!
