About Karen Daugherty
We are the second family to care for this piece of ease and pleasure and while celebrating our sixteen years of ownership. In the last five years we have had so much fun sharing our home with you. We have been involved in the home rental market for a long time. The most visible since starting in 1985 was on the beach in Hilton Head Island, SC. You can trust your satisfaction is our highest priority! We are avid hikers, love the outdoors and love the simplicity and energy nature has to give. We have enjoyed many family times in all the seasons each with a new degree of discovery and joy. Best, Michael Karen and Audrey

A breathtaking experience!!
My wife and I met some old friends for New Years and some hiking. Above the Clouds was the perfect place to stay. VERY close to the park, and the Winter view from the house was amazing. The home itself is very cozy, and well maintained.
Truely a unique property!
Very well taken care of. Tons of room and all the things you might need for a large group.
Beautiful and relaxing!!
I wanted to let you know that you have a wonderful mountain home and that we enjoyed every minute that we were there. We loved the huge screen porch and realized that most of our time was spent there.
Everything at the house was great, well stocked with necessities and lived up to all listed information. We can't wait to come back again!!
Great hiking trails at Caesar's Head Park with the city of Brevard, NC close by.
For the second year my family and I spent the Labor Day weekend at this beautiful home, and once again, we did not want to leave! If you are looking for a house that has everything plus an unbelievable view, do not pass go and rent it immediately. Thanks to the owners for sharing their home with us.
Above the Clouds is an unbelievable home that will make you never want to leave! My family and I spent Labor Day weekend in 2014 and could not have enjoyed ourselves more. We hope to go back several times in the years to come. Karen and her staff made you feel extremely welcomed. If you are looking for the perfect place to relax, forget about your worries, and enjoy a beautiful setting, this is the place for you!
