About Jerry & Robin Reaves

Jerry is a retired middle school teacher & I (Robin) teach elementary school. We have two adult children, both married and a precious grandson. We built Robin's Nest ourselves along with the help of family members. We divide our time between the N.C. coast and the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Jerry & Robin Reaves purchased this House in 2002

Why Jerry & Robin Reaves chose Roaring Creek

After several years of vacationing in Avery County, we discovered this quaint & secluded community called Roaring Creek. After getting to know the neighbors & exploring the natural beauty of the area, we knew this was the place for us. We love being "off the beaten path" and away from the hustle & bustle.

What makes this House unique

Robin's Nest is conveniently located from most area attractions. The Appalachian Trail is a short walk from the house. Boone, Appalachian State University, Banner Elk, & Blowing Rock are all within a 30-45 minute drive. The Blueridge Parkway, Roan Mountain State Park & Linville Falls are close as well. The city of Asheville with the Biltmore House is about an hour's drive away. If you enjoy fishing, grab a pole & go down to the creek & fish for wild mountain trout. (NC Wildlife Fish & Game Regulations apply) or put on your hiking boots & hit the AT! When you grow tired of sight-seeing, fishing, & hiking, grab a cup of coffee or tea and a good book then, settle down on the porch swing or better yet, curl up on the swinging bed and relax to the sound of the rushing waters of Roaring Creek!

                                                              We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed our stay at Robin's Nest. Everything was perfect and all the communications and instructions made for an enjoyable stay. It is a peaceful setting at the house with the creek providing a soothing sound while sitting on the porch out back. The accommodations were great and we did not encounter any issues. We would definitely recommend a stay if you are looking for peaceful place to unwind. We would entertain staying again in the future.

                                                              Beautiful location. Charming cabin.

                                                              Close to great places to explore, but so charming and lovingly maintained, we didn't mind lingering when weather had other plans. Perfect long weekend getaway.

                                                              Great location, Great house

                                                              Everything with this house was perfect, the owners were very helpful with information for the area. The kitchen was well stocked, house was very clean, everything was in great working order. Will definitely return to the property if ever back in the area.

                                                              the house was neat and clean. There was alot of room for our group of 8 adults and 2 children. thank you for opening your house to us.

                                                              PS...the creek is amazingly beautiful.

                                                              What a fabulous weekend! We thoroughly enjoyed this home!

                                                              What a beautiful little spot! We loved sitting on the porch watching the mountain stream below. The kids enjoyed hiking in the stream, which was great, because the wifi is really weak.

                                                              The house was very clean and well appointed. We found everything we needed.

                                                              We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet get away.

                                                              Perfect. Relaxing. Two porches creek side. This is a quiet secluded getaway.
