What do you want most in a Blue Ridge cabin rental? Is it a private, secluded mountain oasis with a breathtaking view, or the tranquil beauty of a flowing river? Is it convenience to all the fun activities you crave, or the all the amenities of a home away from home? At Owls & Friends (formerly known as Owls Nest in Toccoa Preserve), you don’t have to choose. 

This magnificent tri-level mountain showplace on the Toccoa River, considered to be some of the best fly fishing in the Southeast, is a hideaway that’s yours alone, yet it’s just 3.5 miles from the shops and restaurants of downtown Blue Ridge. As a guest, you’re close to some great fishing on the private side of the Toccoa River with few public entry points and a community pavilion to enjoy. You can fish for trout from the shore and enjoy water activities like swimming, floating, kayaking, and tubing on the river. There are many hiking trails nearby, horseback riding in Cashes’ Valley, zip lining in Blue Ridge, 4-wheeling in the Cohutta Wilderness, and the Toccoa River Golf Course is five minutes away. Wine lovers can visit the local wineries, including Serenberry Vineyards, Bear Claw Vineyards, and Crane Creek Vineyards.

Named by the nature-loving owners for the hoot owls you can hear at night, the cabin is decorated with custom-made rustic furniture and a wildlife theme, with knotty pine tongue-and-groove paneled walls; hardwood floors; knotty pine stairs with mountain laurel railings; rustic custom-built furnishings of pine; butternut and cedar woods in every room; prow-front windows and French doors that open to the deck; and pine-paneled ceilings with wooden beams, with ceiling fans throughout. The main level family room is bright and airy, with comfortable couches, 42” TV with DVD, and a lofty ceiling and large prow windows opening to the patio.

There are gas-burning stone-faced fireplaces on the main floor and in the downstairs game room, which has a pool table, wet bar, refrigerator, wraparound couch, 44” TV with DVD player, and board games. For outdoor relaxation, settle into a rocker, gliding love seat, enjoy the outdoor wood burning fireplace attached to the covered deck, hanging swing with a beer or glass of wine or soak in the five-seat hot tub while taking in the view. You can fire up the gas grill and dine outdoors, where there’s plenty of seating for your family and guests.

Inside, the spacious kitchen has everything you need to prepare and serve meals. Furnished with custom cabinetry, granite counter tops, a breakfast bar with butternut wood countertop, stone facing and two barstools, it has black electric appliances, refrigerator with icemaker, and microwave oven. The custom-built knotty pine dining table seats eight.

Each of the three comfortable bedrooms has a custom log king bed and carved headboard, 33" TVs, ceiling fan, deck access and its own bathroom. The bathrooms have cedar double vanities, copper sinks, garden windows, jetted tub and walk-in tiled shower in the private baths.

There’s a walk-in closet and separate office nook in the upstairs bedroom suite, and a spectacular view of the mountains from its private balcony. The downstairs bedroom has a separate bath with single cedar vanity, copper sink and tub/shower combo. 

Other amenities at Owls & Friends include a handicap accesssible ramp to the main floor built to ADA specs, Wifi, washer/dryer, and parking in the driveway. You’re welcome to bring your pets along to share your unforgettable vacation with you—as long as they’re well behaved and stay off the furniture!

Relaxing and beautiful. The cabin was great. Well stocked with all the important things we needed and very cozy. Short drive down to the Toccoa river to fish or play in the river. Definitely recommend staying here.

The house had plenty of room. Each floor (3BR 3 BA) was amazing having older kids. We will rent again!

Thank you for allowing us to use your cabin. I came with family and friends for a get away to the mountains. Very peaceful and great location. Had fun using the hot tub, pool table, and all the amenities the cabin has to offer. Definitely would LOVE to return. Thank you for everything!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin with our family. We stayed here to take our kids to the Polar Express. We had an amazing time and enjoyed our family time together. We will definitely be back!

Thank you for the opportunity for our family to spend time together and celebrate Christmas. We enjoyed the large bedrooms, and especially the fireplace and hot tub. The outdoor fireplace was the best. 

- The Starling Family , Posted: 12/11/2022

Thank you for hosting our family in your home. This place provided us an opportunity to love, live, and laugh as a family under one roof. We took the opportunity to walk down to the water and experience the beautiful scene there! We definitely plan to do this again next year as we had a wonderful time.

Had a wonderful time! Scenery was wonderful. Loved the hot tub.

Thank you for once again allowing us to use this wonderful place. The time spent here was exactly what I needed. And this time, my son and grand-daughter were with me to enjoy it. Kind of bittersweet though, since it was my best friend Patty and I in June of last year. She so wanted to come back here again but unfortunately I lost her this past April when God called her home. My loss, His gain of a wonderful angel. My time here this time, I could only feel her in my heart. Still, my son and I spoke of her often, knowing she is and always will be a part of us. The leaves, the weather, the peace, it was everything needed.

We enjoyed the amenities, the spaciousness, and the peacefulness.

This cabin was just what I was looking for . I loved all the natural wood work throughout this home. It was so beautiful. I enjoyed my 53rd birthday immensely, and we will be booking again in the near future.

Our family had a great time. We enjoyed the cabin and loved how close it was to town. Easy access to the river was a wonderful surprise and very pretty. We would definitely rent here again.

The cabin was beautiful and location was a plus. Customer service was extremely nice and helpful.
- Desmond , Posted: 01/05/2022
We were 3 adult couples. Really liked the bedroom accommodations. All were very comfortable. Gave each couple some privacy. The outdoor fireplace is a plus. Was able to pull in a rocking chair to get seating for 6 in the living room when needed. Appreciated the seat cushions for the wooden chairs and benches. The home location provide privacy but was still close to town and the Old Toccoa Farm golf course.
- Dick , Posted: 10/14/2021

09/18 - We reserved Owls & Friends cabin Thursday to Sunday. We enjoyed staying in your lovely cabin. Peaceful and relaxing. Everything there, well organized. Cabin layout was very good. Boys enjoyed playing pool. This is a completely different experience for us and we loved it. We are looking forward to coming back during the winter season.

09/18 - We had a very enjoyable stay in your beautiful cabin, so much we extended our stay a few days. We spent almost every day fishing in different spots with Tammen Park being our favorite. We waded to a good spot under the bridge and caught lots of trout. Thank you for allowing us to share your beautiful home.
