I grew up on a small farm in the Mills River community and graduated from collage with a degree in horticulture and landscaping. I love to bike, hike and garden. Outdoor photography is one of my favorite hobbies. And with the abundance of wildlife, bird, water falls, streams, and colorful season it is easy to always find something to fill the frame. I am also a North Carolina real estate Agent/Broker and enjoy finding homes for people who want to move our beautiful mountains.

Awesome Experience

  • 5 of 5

My mom, brothers and sisters enjoyed our stay immensely at the Owls Perch this weekend for our moms 75th birthday. Cathy has truly gone above and beyond in the decor of the house and in supplying all the basic needs of a traveler. The way that even the smallest needs were met was incredible.(games, binoculars, toy chest for kids, music, fire pit, etc.) The place was clean and inviting. We had a ball. Our tour of the Biltmore that was only a few miles away was the icing on the cake. Thank you Cathy, for this awesome experience. We highly recommend the Owls Perch and we will be back.

Owl's Perch Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Owls Perch tthis past weekend and couldn't have been happier with the home! The owner went out of her way to make us comfortable during our stay...fresh fruit and snacks awaited our arrival. Coffee and tea available for the morning. The linens in the bedrooms were high quality and both bathrooms were stocked with plenty of towels and toiletries. We definitely hope to stay at Owls Perch cottage again when we return to Asheville! And the view was amazing!

Lovely spot

  • 5 of 5

The home is well appointed, clean and comfortable. Both bathrooms had soap and shampoo and had strong showers.

We enjoyed our stay.

It s about twenty minutes away from Asheville and on a pretty spot. Unfortunately the highway is so close that we could hear the traffic when we sat outside. It took some of the joy away from the isolated top of the hill.

Beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at owl perch and couldn't believe how beautiful the views are. The house is so homely and has everything you need coffee, toiletries and nibbles. It is 15 miles from downtown Asheville a uber cost us no more than $20. We loved the selection of board games. Would definately recommend for groups of 4-6 and will stay again.

Great cabin with views of the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed everything about this house. Our family of 5 went to the Asheville area for a two night stay and this place was perfect. It is clean and well appointed and about 20 minutes from downtown Asheville. We would definitely come back again.
