Owls Roost Cabin Review
Posted on: 10/24/2019

The Owls Roost Cabin was exactly what this group of friends with their families needed! We had families coming from Michigan, North Carolina and Georgia. The layout is amazing it makes for plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen is large and has plenty of storage space for groceries and having 2 refrigerators is wonderful and super helpful. There were plenty of towels for everyone and the beds were nicely made up on arrival. The area is absolutely private, we hardly saw any cars on the road which made it really nice for our group of 6 smaller kids to play outside and enjoy being together on vacation instead of playing on devices. The backroads were even the spot for our friends to get engaged during this trip. We went on plenty of walks up and down the hilly roads during the day and took spooky walks at night! This place will forever hold a spot in our hearts for the great memories that were made on our Friends and Family Vacation 2019! ~Marisa S.; Madison Heights, MI. October 2019

Great Getaway!
Posted on: 1/11/2016

Beautiful home in a quiet, scenic area! This is the place to be if you want to relax. The wide open space is great for families with kids or a group of friends. The five bedrooms accommodate many sleeping arrangements. Spacious kitchen for cooking and grocery store in close proximity. The roads are wide and secluded for walking, biking, corn hole and more. Delicious restaurants nearby and close to Asheville for shopping and touring. Can't wait to get back!

Love it here
Posted on: 1/11/2016

I have had the opportunity to stay here on a couple of occasions. Very quiet and peaceful. On a clear night, you can see more stars than ever. We had bears one evening walk through the front yard. I saw deer down the street near the barn. I saw lots of wild turkey throughout the neighborhood. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area of Black Mountain, Asheville, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We went hiking around Montreat, Pisgah National Forest, and the parkway. Shopping is always good in Black Mountain and Asheville. Not too far from Lake Lure and Chimney Rock to explore. Straight Away Cafe and Pub is close by and good food and live music. Also family friendly.

A Little Piece of Paradise
Posted on: 1/11/2016

Last weekend, I had the distinct pleasure of retreating to the private, peaceful sanctuary of Owl's Roost in Black Mountain, NC.  This gorgeous, log home was immaculately clean with gleaming wood floors; comfy and tasteful furniture; and was equipped with every amenity for which I could have hoped!  The floor plan of this home allowed for plenty of privacy when needed, but the spacious common living area and child-friendly basement space allowed our group to enjoy quality time together as well!  After a scrumptious dinner at the Black Mountain Bistro, the owner of the property warmly welcomed us and tended to our every need!  Breakfast at the Black Mountain Biscuit Company filled our spirits as well as our bellies with the largest, most savory homemade biscuits we've ever tasted!  A mid-afternoon hike along the ridge provided breathtaking views and refreshing, crisp mountain breezes. The highlight meal of our trip however, was dinner at the Straightaway Cafe - a true delight which engaged all of our senses with comfortable tables, live music, and savory flavors of high country comfort foods!  If you're searching for the perfect spot for a family getaway, small group retreat, or a cozy place to cuddle up to someone special, I highly recommend Owl's Roost as your place to stay; savor the special memories you're sure to make!  We will definitely be back!

Amazing family weekend
Posted on: 1/11/2016

We took our mother here to celebrate Mother's Day and had an amazing weekend.  Owl's Roost was in a perfect location for time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and really focus on quality family time.  The open floor plan of the main level is perfect for lots of conversation, while the other two levels provide perfect space for privacy when needed.  Plenty of opportunity for adventures within driving distance (don't miss the beautiful falls nearby!).  The home was very clean and nicely appointed.  Mom is already planning next years visit!
