About the Property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Pet Friendly Mountain Cabin Close To River And Hiking Trails.

Stay at the 'Hoot Owl' and enjoy a private, rustic and very charming cabin fully equipped with all the amenities and comforts of home! The Hoot Owl is adjacent to an extensive trail system great for hiking and enjoying the outdoors. Take a hike to the top of the mountain for a panoramic mountain view; on your way, walk past Hungry River located just across the road from the Hoot Owl. Enjoy the fully equipped game room, large outside deck or sit by the large picture window and watch all that nature has to offer. Walk to the community chapel and attend Sunday morning services during summer season. Open your windows and enjoy a peaceful sleep with the sound of the rumbling river, or sit by the fireplace with a good book. The Hoot Owl offers endless family fun and enjoyment along with quiet hours of just pure relaxation!

The entrance to the cabin is through the game room. Up the steps to the front door; watch your step! We have provided a house phone with unlimited long distance for our guests. Cell reception may be spotty depending on your carrier. There is also access to hi-speed Wi-Fi throughout the cabin.


Winter in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina not only has its own special beauty, but also offers a whole lot of fun! Make plans this winter to visit the ski mountains of Western North Carolina. No other state in the region can boast so many slopes and opportunities to have fun in the snow all winter long! Six ski resorts all within an hour to 2 hours away: Cataloochee Ski Area, Ski Sapphire, Wolf Ridge Ski Resort, Sugar Mountain, Beech Mountain and Appalachian Ski Mountain.

Need a therapeutic massage? There's even a Certified Neuro-Massage Therapist offering Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Thai Massage, Ashiatsu Massage, Prenatal Massage, Hot Stone Massage, and Therapeutic/Sports Massage all within walking distance, just what the doctor ordered!

On your drive to the Hoot Owl, you will experience 'Apple Country' as Henderson County is the largest apple-producing county in North Carolina and grows 65 percent of the apples in the state. Today Henderson County and Edneyville is home to approximately 200 apple growers. There are about 5000 acres of apple trees planted in Henderson County. The apple harvest season runs from late August to late October.

For wine enthusiasts, the Hoot Owl is located just minutes from two local 'family owned' wineries. Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards and Burntshirt Vineyards, both family-owned with tasting rooms and wine available for purchase. Both wineries enjoy panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Sample the many varieties from wine grapevines, grown on the vineyards at elevations of 2,300 and 3,000 feet along with cool nights produce some of the best wine producing grapes in the country!

During your stay at the Hoot Owl, you will want to take 15 - 20 minute drive to Lake Lure. The lake is approximately 720 acres, with about twenty-one miles of shoreline. National Geographic has called Lake Lure one of the most beautiful man-made lakes in the world!

Lake Lure sits in the heart of Hickory Nut Gorge and its picturesque setting offers numerous photo opportunities. East of Asheville, the crystal clear Rocky Broad River tears its way in a series of rapids down through Hickory Nut Gap.

Historic downtown Hendersonville is just a twenty minute drive from the Hoot Owl. Hendersonville is located 22 miles south of Asheville, NC on a plateau with an altitude of 2200 feet above sea level. Explore the town and surrounding country with varied attractions, festivals, recreational activities, historical sites, golf courses, family activities, historic districts, a variety of accommodations and restaurants.
