Repeat Winner!

  • 5 of 5

We first visited Owl House in June 2014 (see our more detailed 5 Star review submitted 6/28/14), "A Winner"). A great place to stay when visiting Blowing Rock. Already planning our next visit. Can't go wrong with this VRBO. Wes, the owner, could not be more accommodating.

Wonderful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The Owl house was just as described. It accommodated our 8 adults and 2 children with no problem. Great layout and great location. Plenty of fire wood. Excellent communication with owner.

Perfect Home with Perfect Owners!

  • 5 of 5

When you think of a "mountain cabin" - the Owl House not only is the top example of that but much more! All the modern conveniences with all the Blowing Rock charm! I really cannot say enough about how homey, well equipped, clean & just how cute this house is! It is so hard to write in a few sentences how much thought the owners have put into making this rental house an actual home away from home - without breaking the bank! Owners are very responsive & extremely easy to work with! One more thing - this is a REAL review...the owner, Wes, has my permission to give out my email address to anyone who wants to hear first hand just how great the Owl House is inside & out!

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Home away from home!! My family LOVES this place. As soon as we walked through the front door, we felt welcomed and at home. It's cozy, quaint, and well stocked with the necessities. The children loved their rooms, hiking the land, and sledding!! As my daughter said,"it was a magical Thanksgiving" with the 5" of snow that came down. For this family that was skeptical of renting a home, we look forward to returning to The Owl House again for the best R&R.

Lovely Place

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place! Not far from Blowing Rock and Boone, but you feel away from it all, gorgeous pond to play on and listen to the rushing water. Roasted s'mores at night, watched hummingbirds from the amazing porch. Nice updates in the house, old world feel with modern convenience.

A winner!

  • 5 of 5

We are experienced VRBO users and Owl House may be our favorite yet. Overview is spot on but understated. Photos accurately depict the cabin and views. Perfect location between Blowing Rock and Boone and just minutes from Blue Ridge Parkway. Charming vintage cabin is warm and homey. Clean and very well stocked with everything one could possibly require. Plenty of outdoor space for our Standard Poodle to safely enjoy off leash time as well as enough groomed acreage for adults to walk off dinner! Fire pit is enjoyable with provided benches and wonderful view. Front porch time alone (including the ever present hummingbirds) was worth the trip. This is a great place to stay and relax as well as for visiting all of the area attractions (although we were reluctant to leave the front porch). A wonderful find. Owner (Wes) was responsive and reservations, directions, instructions and checkout were all handled smoothly. For certain we will be returning.
