Sisters Weekend Getaway!
My sisters and I had a wonderful stay at this nice little cabin in the woods of NC. It was very clean and cozy! Cathy was super easy to work with and quick to respond when I had questions. The house has a well stocked kitchen for those cooks out there. There were plenty of clean towels and the sheets smelled nice and fresh. The cabin is about 20 minutes away from anywhere you would like to be in the Asheville area. It was an easy drive to the Biltmore or downtown. Also, there is a very nice Ingles grocery store about 10 minutes away. I would highly recommend staying here!
Really Nice short stay
We stayed here for a portion of the week (3 nights) to be close to Asheville / Biltmore but also be away from the city bustle. About 20 minutes from both and 45 mins from Navitat Ziplining (recommend). Cathy is extremely responsive to questions in email, and was able to work with us with slight travel adjustments (Thanks!).
House was a perfect size for family of 4 and was well stocked with pretty much everything you’d need. Plenty of towels, dishes, etc. and even comes with several games (2 of my son’s favorites). Firewood was available and there was a pit in the front and chimney pit in the backyard. Was nice to roast some S’mores and a raccoon tried to join us 1 evening.
Sits atop a hill and pretty private lot, once you go up the street past the trailer homes (didn’t ever see anyone). Woods mostly surround the 3 sides and There is another house down to the left. He was chipping wood and loud banging noises 2 of the early evenings, which made the outdoor tranquility vanish as we sipped wine in the garden area.
The only knock, and reason for 4 stars instead of 5, is that you can here the big rig trucks on I-40 when sitting outside. It’s in the distance and not horrible, you can carry on conversations and enjoy the night. But if you’re looking for absolute peace and quite, then this may be a distraction.
Beautiful and Peaceful
The Owl's Nest is awesome and Cathy makes it even more special. We had everything we needed and more to make our stay great. House was very clean, inviting, and had all the amenities you could ever need. We had a wonderful stay. Thanks Cathy for your hospitality.
Couldn't ask for more! We had a wonderful stay! Cathy thinks of everything! Beautiful views, the home is stocked. Felt right at home!
Couldn’t have been any better!
What a lovely Christmas my family and I enjoyed at Owl’s Perch. The house is decorated beautifully and the floor plan is open making for a great gathering spot. You will want for nothing as Cathy has anticipated your every need. She even decorated inside and out for the Christmas holiday! What a special place and great hostess!
Nice private retreat about 20 mins from downtown AVL or Biltmore estate. House is at the top of a long, steep gravel driveway. We drove a Suburban. Don’t be alarmed by the modular homes on the street as the house sits privately at the top of the hill. There are chairs set up to enjoy the view out front, but we spent most of our time in the triangular secret garden in the back that has a small fountain and wood fire pit on a small patio. The living space inside is very open with kitchen, dining room and two seating areas. Master with ensuite is off dining room. Two bedrooms are off family room, one bedroom has the door to backyard and the other has a walk in closet. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes, snacks and appliances. Nicely decorated for fall season. Can tell home is well maintained.
Owl's Perch Cottage is very conveniently located. Just minutes to downtown Asheville, Biltmore Estate, Blue Ridge Parkway, NC Arboretum, Waynesville, Maggie Valley, and a short drive to the Cataloochee Sky Resort and The Cherokee Indian Reservation and Casino, as well as the NC Arboretum, and Bent Creek hiking and biking trails at lake Powotan. 10 minute drive to Hugh Outlet Center.
