About Lani Owens

I am a North Carolina native that attended college at Appalachian State. I am a veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan wars and have served over 20 years in the Army thus far. I have a beautiful 10 year old daughter who loves to travel as much as I do. We both love to come back to the cabin whenever we can.

Lani Owens purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Lani Owens chose Blue Ridge Mountains

My daughter and I found this cabin when she was only a few months old, and she picked it out! She will inherit the cabin someday, but in the meantime we both want to share the joy this home has brought us. Appalachian was the 1st word she could read, which speaks to her fondness of the area which is so rich in culture and untouched beauty.

What makes this cabin unique

Amazing views and accessible seclusion.

Personalized decorating and welcoming feel.

Property is on a ridge with a small stream at the bottom for those that like to explore.

Relaxing and Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cabin and appreciated Lani taking our last minute reservation so we could celebrate my mom's 70th birthday. The cabin is so perfectly situated in a quiet area that we didn't want to leave. Anything we needed was found in the home. My daughters loved all the board games. Thank you for a relaxing time! We loved it!

The Perfect Romantic Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to surprise my girlfriend with a long weekend in the NC mountains. I found this home on VRBO, and it sounded perfect. We had a wonderful 5 days and nights, just relaxing and enjoying ourselves. The hot tub was a huge hit, and we took advantage of it every night. What a pleasure! The cabin has plenty of space to spread out, including the downstairs for watching movies and doing some laundry. We will return very soon! In addition, the owner was available by phone whenever we needed help, such as directions to the cabin, or how to get connected with WiFi. She provided excellent customer service.

As described...

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time enjoying the crisp mountain air on the deck of the cabin. It was peaceful and relaxing. The cabin is as described. We had a couple of concerns but the property owner was very responsive and wanted to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Overall we are very satisfied.

Our cabin is not an investment property. It is our future home. I am a single working mother and hope to be able to retire here after the Army is finished with me. I only rent our cabin to be able to afford the mortgage. When you come you will see and feel the difference between our home and other rental properties. Everything about this place is personal from the furniture and decorations to the personal labor I have put in to finish the basement. I ask that you treat my home as your home away from home. I have not charged for accidents if they were reported to me by the renters. However, I have asked my cleaning crew to be diligent on checking and cleaning.

Owner's Cancellation Policy
