Perched on a mountaintop more than 3,000 feet above the trees with dramatic, sweeping long-range mountain vistas in the distance, The Owl's Perch is like a magnificent picture postcard come to life. Located northeast of Lake Blue Ridge on a large lot in Morganton that borders unspoiled U.S. Forest Service land, it's a calm oasis far removed from stressful city life, but just a short drive away from the shops and dining of downtown Blue Ridge.
The western-facing view from the cabin offers you magical sunrises, revealing the mountains as the fog lifts across the lake, and spectacular sunsets that will take your breath away.
With hiking and mountain biking trails--you may see a deer or two—and state parks nearby, and canoeing, kayaking and fishing on the Toccoa River, the cabin is ideally situated to take advantage of everything that North Georgia and its environs have to offer.
Inside the cabin, large exposed beams, soaring vaulted ceilings, natural woods, gas stone fireplaces, soothing neutral colors, and tasteful contemporary decor blend harmoniously to create an atmosphere that is rustic yet refined. The open floor plan design makes it perfect for gathering and entertaining, but there are plenty of spots to relax enjoy private, quieter moments as well.
There are two spacious, comfortable living areas: the main floor has French doors and huge windows to bring the outside in, and the lower level space doubles as a game room, outfitted with foosball and ping pong tables, puzzles, board games, TV with DVDs, and a PlayStation with games. The main floor kitchen features wood cabinets, new stainless appliances, granite countertops, drip and Keurig coffeemakers, a blender, crockpot and all the dishes, pots and pans, utensils and implements you need to prepare, cook and serve. Plastic dishes are available for children and outdoor use. The dining table has room for ten, plus two at the breakfast bar.
If you love to barbecue, you can fire up the gas grill and dine out on the decks, where there's plenty of seating, two picnic tables, a glider, a fire pit and a seven-seat hot tub. String lights hung above the hot tub set the mood as you soak and take in the mountain view.
The cabin can easily accommodate big families and groups, sleeping 10 guests in four bedrooms. On the main level, the master bedroom features a king bed, French doors to the deck, a large walk-in closet, and private bath with shower, tile floor, double sinks, and a washer/dryer. There are two bedrooms upstairs, one with a queen bed and two spacious closets, the other with a queen and bunk beds. They share a bath with tub and shower. The downstairs bedroom has a king bed, large closet, deck access and full bath with tub and shower.
As for media, Owl's Perch has it all: WiFi, four TV's - a 65” Roku and DISH Network-equipped set in the main living room and a 55” TV with Roku, DISH, and DVD downstairs, a 48” TV with Roku in the downstairs bedroom, and a 46” set with DVD player in the bunk bedroom.
There's a selection of toys, blocks, games, a pack n' play, and movies for younger kids. The road to the cabin is paved, leading to a roomy gravel driveway. You're welcome to bring up to two dogs with you as you relax, recharge, and enjoy a memorable stay at this cabin above the clouds.
