About Glenn Creech

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.

Glenn Creech purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Glenn Creech chose Blue Ridge Mountains

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!!

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Beautiful view of the river and mountains!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed watching the deer in the yard. The view of the clouds hanging​ on top of the mountains and the view of the trees on the meadow looking out of the kitchen window was one we truly did not want to leave! Of course watching our granddaughter playing in the river and rolling down the hill was memories to last a lifetime! Thank you for letting us stay in such an amazing little cabin I'm sure we'll be back again.

Best Vacation in a long time

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a wonderful, relaxing 2 weeks at the Owl’s Nest. Near the end of our stay and not wanting to leave, we checked the calendar and saw no one immediately following us, so with one quick email we extended our stay. Best vacation in a long, long time! We WILL return!!

The cabin was everything the description and pictures promised and more. Thank you Glenn and Katherine for sharing your home with us.

Just What We Needed

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I went away for a much needed getaway and this home was perfect. The house is nicely furnished and the property is incredibly beautiful. It was so nice to sit on the porch and look out at the beautiful setting. It truly looked like something out of a postcard. The house is not too far from shopping, both food and otherwise. Rode the Virginia Creeper which was also only about 30 minutes away. Would definitely stay here again.

LOVE IT!!! Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great, very comfy. The furnishings were perfect, but the fireplace on the porch was the best part of all. Although it rained all day we stayed on the porch with a cozy fire all day long! Of all the cabins we have been to this is the one... already making plans to return. Why drive to Gatlinburg TN when the best is in Creston NC 👍𣐽򓘍

Comfy

  • 5 of 5

My husband and myself along with my sister and her husband have stayed at the "Owls Nest" twice this year. We highly recommend this property as it feels like home. Location is beautiful, peaceful and totally relaxing. Love sitting on the porch and listening to the stream bubbling along with nature sounds. We will be back.

Magical

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this property justice. It is truly a magical location-- beautiful views, river literally a few steps away, plus a wonderful porch with fireplace to enjoy your hot coffee in the cool, misty mornings. Our kids log-rolled down the hill, played in the river, hung out in the hammock, and roasted s'mores at night. It was perfect. More than one of my Instagram followers wanted to know more after seeing the pictures I posted this weekend. It felt like I was letting them in on a big secret! Another bonus: the Ingles in West Jefferson is an awesome grocery store, particularly if you are used to getting organic produce or have folks in your family with special food needs, like gluten-free, etc. That is often hard to find but this store is huge with an awesome selection.
