The Owl's Nest is a gorgeous, off the beaten path retreat, overlooking the Piscah National Forest. It has all the modern luxuries you could want while still allowing you to escape modern life and reboot in nature. The home is cozy from top to bottom and we loved how much privacy the Owl's Nest offers. We really enjoyed the feeling of living in the middle of the forest while still being so close to so many activities, towns and trails. The outdoor porch and fireplace were our absolute favorite part of the home, offering stunning, unimpeded view of the mountains which we enjoyed with our coffee in the morning, as well as, cocktails and wine at night. We very much enjoyed our stay at the Owl's Nest and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get away in rustic luxury.

I cannot recommend Owl's Nest enough. It is newly built with great attention to detail, from furnishings to fixtures. With an upscale "rustic chic" style, I found it both comfortable and classy. I loved the sliding barn door to the master bedroom on the first floor that matches the accent wall. With 3 floors, there was plenty of room and the kids' space on the lower level (with wii) was a great addition. However, the best part about Owl's Nest is the spectacular view of the mountains and Blowing Rock. I could have sat out there all day talking with my friends or just watching the weather systems flow through. Simply stunning at any time of the day! My only regret is that I couldn't stay longer.

This home was awesome! We had 8 family members and plenty of room for everyone. The place was very clean and well stocked with amenities! I will definitely rent through Blue Ridge again. Also, my daughter left an item behind and not only did they find it, they mailed it to us at no charge.

Our family truly enjoyed our stay at Owls Nest. The place was clean and very comfortable, we had 8 people and plenty of room to move around. The view is worth the trip even though we did experience some bad weather. It was “ Masters “ weekend and the TV worked amazing all weekend! Also, my daughter left an item behind that was found by cleaning crew and is being mailed back to us at no charge!

Everything about Owl's Nest was outstanding! We had such great communication with Micki before we even stayed. The house was absolutely beautiful and the views were spectacular!! We had a minor hiccup with the rental when we checked in and I called after hours and Dillon jumped right on it to make our stay exactly what we expected. It's easy to like a company when everything goes smoothly but really shows the integrity of a company with how they handle things gone wrong. The "problem" was rectified immediately and we could not be happier. My husband and I rent a vacation home twice a year and while this was our first with BRMR, it will absolutely not be our last!!!

Our entire family of 11 (our two daughters, son-in-laws, 4 grandchildren ages 1-6), my 88 year old mother and 2 dogs) stayed at Owl's Nest for a week of great fun in the Blue Ridge Mountains! The home was beautifully designed with an awesome view of the mountains. We had some challenges upon arrival with the electronic lock not working, but soon got a new code with the on-call maintenance representative. The cleanliness of the cabin was fair as there was dog hair on and under the furnishings. The parking area is steep and difficult to fit 3 vehicles. The family room and dining room furniture were limited and not comfortable for 11 individuals. Also there is another house very close on one side, which was unexpected. Otherwise, the cabin was great for our family. We had a phenomenal time exploring the parkway, Linville Falls/Caverns, Tweetsie Railroad, Boone, Blowing Rick, Gem Mining, Grandfather Mountain, Ashe Cheese Factory and more! The deck with a fireplace was perfect for roasting marshmallows and enjoying the exquisite view with a glass of wine. Loved having 3 private living spaces, washer/dryer, playroom, large covered/uncovered deck, open main level, spacious modern bathrooms, and proximity to numerous activities. We would definitely consider another stay at the Owl's Nest. Highly recommend this beautiful home!

OWLS NEST CABIN, BLUE RIDGE RENTALS.
We stayed in this cabin for 10 days. The cabin was perfect. We were a family of 5 with a dog. The driveway is a little challenging but if people from Florida in a rental mini van can figure it out.... anyone can. There is a cabin directly next to it, but they were the nicest people. Great neighbors! Great neighborhood. The bedrooms were just right. The bathrooms were stunning. The upper back porch, with a fire going and taking in the views was the best part about the cabin. You only need to come with your clothes and buy food and you are set. My kids had so much fun picking wild blackberries while out playing. Really close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and 20 minutes from Downtown Blowing Rock, a family friendly old school small town with such charm. We would stay there again and again.

The view is absolute perfection. We sat in silence, prayer, and often in giggles of delight. The home is well appointed, with a full kitchen and luxury linens. We sat outside star gazing with a fire burning, you can see for miles with only a few homes on the distant mountain tops as signs of civilization. Would stay again.

I was skeptical about the view from the pictures posted. Upon arriving the view was even better than I expected. I'd rebook this house in a heartbeat.

Beautiful mountain home..well maintained. Solid customer service by BR MT Rentals.
- Sterling, Posted: 08/10/2020
Our house was amazing and y'all set us up so well. We didn't need anything while we were there and a big part of that is because the house was well stocked. Thank you for the fire wood. That was one of the many highlights!
- Jennifer, Posted: 08/18/2020
The Owl's Nest was a perfect family retreat. The views and all the amenities were just what we needed for a peaceful, joyous stay. The deck offers incredible views at all times of day. The house was sparkling clean and the picture windows of the mountains, made leaving the home hard. There was so much to do in the surrounding areas, tubing, hiking, the caverns. I could have stayed an extra week and that rarely happens.
- Robert, Posted: 08/18/2020
This house is absolutely spectacular and is managed very nicely. We had an incredible weekend away and the view was unbelievable. Very hard to leave! Thank you!
- Megan, Posted: 12/22/2020
We stopped here on our way home for the holidays, and the place was incredible! Watching the sun rise over the mountains in the morning from the living room was probably our favorite part about the place. It was also so nice to be able to use the fireplace inside and hot tub, we definitely will be visiting again!
- Elizabeth, Posted: 12/29/2020
This modern and open space has an amazing view, its location is perfect for sunrises and sunsets! This house was clean and well appointed for our arrival and stay.

Beautiful cabin with the best view in the area. I would absolutely stay here again. The view in person is even better than the pictures.
- Hailey, Posted: 01/12/2021
Beautiful view! I loved the style of the house and the decor. If there is a chance of snow I highly recommend driving a 4WD. We will definitely consider booking this house again.
- Carol, Posted: 01/25/2021
3000 ft high in the mountains with great views in a modern style house with super outdoor space and fireplaces that are great in winter weather. Super comfortable beds and blankets and great thick towels with bathroom amenities- wear hiking boots in the winter to walk the area
- C., Posted: 01/26/2021
Great house- great views- enjoyed the fires in the fireplace and an afternoon in the hot tub - nicely updated and loved the bathroom in the master- able to get more firewood easily too!! Will definitely return for fall colors which should be beautiful - bring your camera!! And hiking boots!
- Jena, Posted: 02/26/2021

- Caroline, Posted: 03/15/2021
This cabin is amazing! It was spotless and the view is beautiful! We wished we could have stayed longer. We hope to visit the same cabin again soon.
- Dawn, Posted: 03/22/2021
Great cabin with wonderful views. We enjoyed the stay. The beds were comfy and the fireplace on the porch was so cozy! It's a private feeling place and 4 wheel drive a good idea for the drive to cabin.
- Jason, Posted: 03/29/2021
The view is absolutely stunning! We loved waking up to the sun rising over the mountains, enjoying sweeping mountain views from just about every room in the house. We got lots of use out of the outdoor fireplace and the hottub. One of the best vacations ever!
- Natalie, Posted: 04/19/2021
Beautiful home, as described. Everything you need for a great get away. So much to do just a short drive from the home. Highly recommend.
