PILOT'S PERCH - A MOUNTAIN CABIN AND OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME


Gregg and I were away from the 21st to the 26th of July, spending five of those days at one of the prettiest cabins we have ever had the pleasure of staying in.
There is a driveway at the side which leads to the garage for a car, and space for other cars if there are more people.

Even if only for a few days, it was a lovely home-away-from home, and it had a truly magnificent view. 
It was a bit drizzly when we first arrived but the cloud cover and mist rising up from the hills was mesmerizing.

We made good use of the two balconies, on the main floor and outside our bedroom below. The outside seating was very comfortable and there was also an outdoor dining area.  And I must not forget the fire pit and hot tub.

We enjoyed the use of the balcony off the bedroom we used, and there was a nice bathroom beyond the closed door.  
There were three bedrooms to choose from, all of which were a delight.  We decided on this one, so that we could wake up to that incredible view.  I saw hawks flying low and one time we looked over and there were deer out back.  Another morning there were rabbits in front of the cabin.  We saw rabbits several times driving in and out of the neighborhood.
One morning I sat on our bedroom balcony before the sun came up, still in my nightclothes.  (It is very private for I am not one to sit on balconies in my nightclothes.).  I felt at peace in this idyllic setting, and enjoyed watching the twinkling lights below.  As my eyes focused I also enjoyed looking up at all the clouds, and the view.  Oh my goodness, that view!
I will be talking about the cabin in future posts, but in the meantime you can look at this link, which will give you lots more information and pretty photos of each room and living area, and more.  
I fell in love with the comfy sofas, especially as they had built-in foot rests that popped up and head rests that lay down, like my old lazy-boy.  The kitchen met every need.  Indeed, the whole cabin is beautifully and very tastefully decorated.

Tannya and Blake are the owners.  I spoke with Tannya on the phone, a lovely lady who answers every question you might have.  There is a very large folder with things to do in the area.  Also their guest book is full of writings from satisfied visitors, all of  whom gave glowing five-star reviews of their stay, and now ours is included along with everyone else's.  
This is a place I can recommend to anyone who would like to enjoy the experience of being just off the Blue Ridge Parkway.  We would love to share this with our son and daughter-in-law sometime, and other family and friends eventually, but we are also looking forward to going back on our own. 
Sweet sentiments and so true!

Thanks for stopping by everyone, and enjoy your day.

  10. What a lovely place to enjoy a get away! It looks comfortable in the cabin. Love all the wood features and the views are amazing. A 24/7 relaxing location. It would be lovely waking up to that scenery viewed through the window and then sitting outside on a balcony.

  12. I am definitely looking into this. Thank you for posting and the link. This place looks wonderful with a beautiful view.. I want to go to fancy gap and just take a look at the Sydna Allen home. I have piece of his furniture and would like to see the home. I know I can't tour inside, maybe that will come later.
