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 Creston

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.

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The reason I chose this cabin was the porch with the fireplace. It was relaxing. We hung out on the porch most of the time. The owners had stocked up firewood. When we arrived all we had to do was light a match. We also enjoyed the view. I can not wait to go back. It was everything I wanted it to be.

A relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this place justice! It is quite beautiful and serene. We spent much of our time at the cabin on the porch just drinking in the views, watching the clouds, the river, the deer, the birds, and the bunnies. We were pleased also with how very clean the place was. The nicely decorated interior was very comfy and the owner was friendly, helpful and responsive to all of our needs. Our one very minor complaint is that we found the lighting to be a bit inadequate for us in the bathroom, the downstairs bedroom and the living room. Nonetheless, I give this place 5 stars because, as a cabin rental, it exceeded all of our expectations in all other regards. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review of Owls Nest. We planned Owls Nest around what we liked as far as what a mountain cabin should be. There is a lot of tender loving care to achieve the experience that you have described. Please plan to visit again real soon.

The Owl's Nest was the perfect cabin! Beautiful home, property, and location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to enjoy vacation. Watching the deer, listening to the birds, and sipping a cup of coffee on the porch....nice! The sound of the river and relaxing in the hammock....zzzzz! The beds were comfy and cottage was tastefully decorated. Our guys enjoyed a challenging nearby golf course and the girls liked the fun shops and food in West Jefferson. We also took a family bike ride down the Virginia Creeper Trail in Damascus. It was totally worth the drive to see what beauty abounded there and was good for all skill levels. We had a great vacation! Thanks for the excellent hospitality!
