We wanted to relax and this place was perfect. Just a small comfortable clean cabin in the woods. We loved the hot tub. Easy to access, immaculately clean and perfectly situated to look at the mountains and watch the stars come out! It's not a hotel so you need to bring your own food,drinks, etc. Also we weren't interested in watching tv but it is smaller than you might expect (our boy still played video games on it!). We just really liked to have peace quiet and no distractions. Will definitely stay again! Also having a digital coded doorknob is genius! No worries over losing keys!
We had a wonderful one night stay at The Owl's Perch. The cabin has everything you might need and more. The décor is precious and comfortable. Breakfast on the deck with the creek as a backdrop was wonderful. We enjoyed meeting Doug and Alice, their dog, Skippy, and foster puppy, Wiley. Don't hesitate to stay here. You will love it!
The Owl's Perch is a wonderful B&B in the woods on a beautiful mountain stream. The setting is peaceful & relaxing with nature all around. The guest room is lovely yet rustic with every convenience we needed. The breakfasts were delicious and I was surprised to find a thoughtful birthday treat when we arrived. Innkeepers Doug and Alice are warm & welcoming and we felt comfortable and right at home. They shared their knowledge of the area and the many recreational opportunities that are at our disposal. We highly recommend this wonderful B&B & we can't wait to go back! If you want to be one on one with nature this is the place to go. Russ & Margo
Awesome cabins for the price. They are located in a nice spot so you have plenty of choices when it comes to doing something outside. Had a great time stargazing at night while relaxing in the hot tub. Plus they are pet friendly so it was nice being able to bring our dog with us. I definitely plan on staying here again some day!
The Bear cabin is wonderful and we enjoyed our stay. The beds are very comfortable. We enjoyed the outdoor fire pit and made new friends! The cabins are at a great location, close to Bryson City or Cherokee. We Wil be back!
I had stayed here in the past. It is very quiet and a great location. This was a one bedroom cabin with a pull-out sofa. There was no door to the bedroom and it would have been better with a door, especially when you have 3 people. Otherwise, it was fine. I would stay there again.
The whole trip exceeded our expectations. The owls perch was absolutely beautiful and all the small details made us feel right at home. Alice, Doug & Skippy were wonderful hosts and shared some of their favorite spots with us and lead us to some incredible adventures. All in all, It is a trip we will never forget!
My wife and I were hiking the AT and were fortunate enough to find Doug, Alice and the Owl's Perch. As hikers we had needs beyond their normal guests but they opened up their home to us and gladly helped. Alice picked us up at the trail head, took us to the grocery to resupply and washed our very stinky clothes. They invited us to dinner with their friends and treated us like family. We felt like old friends and not just guests. Our room was awesome and more than we expected. We had everything we needed for a very relaxing stay. We had a wonderful experience and highly recommend the Owl's Perch.
Doug and Alice are 2 great hosts. Wonderful people to spend an evening with. Stayed one night but before we left it felt like home. Very hospitable and gracious hosts. We fell asleep to the sounds of nature and the rushing Creek. I would definitely come back again, it is a great place if you want to get away.
I was researching the area for a possible site to buy and build a cabin of our own. The Owls Perch is perfect for a couple that doesn't need the excess space and cost of a rental cabin. It provides all the essentials at a more than reasonable price, and has a view/atmosphere you would be lucky to replicate. Alice and Doug define premium hospitality. Staying solo I was prepared for junk food meals, and they were nice enough to invite me to all their meals! I brought in some fresh fish and scallops from Florida, and we had great fellowship over some great food prepared by Alice. It turned into a bed, breakfast, and dinner! I can't say enough about good things coming in small packages. The cabin is decorated with premium and rustic attributes unique to the area. It was extremely clean and has everything you need. Thanks for making it a great trip!
I had a super time I have never stayed at a bed and breakfast before it was an excellent experience.alice was so amazing she was flexible in service time for breakfast Doug greeted me openly . nothing was out of place the creek running behind the room was super so soothing just as wonderful as the ocean sounds thanks for opening your home to me thanks again Shirley
We stayed in one of their cabins for four days. It was very clean & comfortable. There were too good-sized bedrooms, a living room & kitchen with full sized stove, refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. It was very quiet, very easy to get to and convenient to Bryson City, Sylva, Cherokee. It's not too far from Asheville. I would stay there again. There is no "onsite dining" but I have it an outstanding for having a kitchen. :-)
My wife and I had a terrific time at The Owl's Perch. The host family was extremely nice and breakfast was yummy. I was very impressed with the details and workmanship of the Perch. The view and sound of the creek brought total relaxation to our trip. The best way to say how we feel-we are trying to find time to return.
My husband and I stayed at Owl's Perch upon the recommendation of another local b and b hostess, March 18 and 19th, 2006. We enjoyed everything about our stay. This space is nothing short of a "small house", everything so cleverly designed and decorated beautifully. The crowning touch was the spacious porch where we could sit with our morning breakfast, or evening wine. Alice prepared and brought to our room delicious meals for breakfast. We truly hope to return.
My husband and I stayed at The Owl's Perch in November, 2015 for 3 days. We were looking to get away from city life and relax, and we were able to do that here. We knew to expect a remote road and our Honda Civic made it just fine. Alice, Doug, and their adorable dog, Skippy, greeted us. They were the perfect hosts - very warm and welcoming and willing to recommend things to do, etc. but also gave us our privacy. The guest house was even more beautiful in person than in photos - they really thought of everything! Our favorite part was sitting on our private deck, looking at and listening to the breathtaking creek. We also really enjoyed hiking around the area - it's so quiet, peaceful, and beautiful. This was the perfect relaxing getaway and we are already planning on when to go back!
What a wonderful and charming place to stay. The owners have included everything to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. From the cute kitchenette to the warm and inviting room, all of the details of a cabin are there. We loved going to sleep listening to Squally Creek's rushing waters just outside the room. Doug and Alice were wonderful hostesses providing us with an array of activities to enjoy the hills of the Smokey's. We will be back for another relaxing stay.
I enjoyed our stay each time I was here. The staff is friendly and veteran friendly. The location of the cabins are awesome. Easy access in and out. Grocery stores are not far and everything else is within 20 minutes to get to.
We stayed in the Fox cabin in late Oct. It was very clean. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans and dishes. The hot tub was nice in the evening. Quiet but still close to a lot of attractions. We'll go back again. Dale R.
Minutes from casino, restaurants and Fort Tomahawk Shopping...this cabin retreat was peaceful and quite relaxing. We hope to be returning annually and are encouraging groups to spend time at Sunset Farms.
