Escape to Family Adventure at the Blissful Burrow

A Luxury Family Cabin w/ Secluded Hot Tub, Outdoor deck & Game Room

Just minutes to Blue Ridge

2 bedroom · 2 bath · Up to 9 Guests

In summer, you are surrounded by the vibrant greens of towering oaks and pines, and in the fall, the crisp air and the brilliance of bright reds, oranges and yellows is breathtaking. At dusk you’ll hear the sounds of nature and watch lightning bugs flit. Once inside, the large windows and natural materials make you feel like you have burrowed into a truly luxe Treehouse. Even more special are all the places to gather as a family, from the Firepit to al fresco Dining to Movie and Game Night!

The space

Our cozy log cabin is an eclectic blend of rustic and modern – Peaceful, Tranquil, Blissful. We wanted to embrace the natural beauty of the local wilderness and bring elements of it inside to create a true Treehouse – but with modern comforts! (Want to turn on the fan? Alexa would love to do that for you!) We were inspired by the Burrowing Owl, who chooses to “remodel” other animals’ burrrow homes to make their own cozy nest! In keeping with that, we have recently remodeled our basement and turned it into an amazing Game and TV Lounge, where kids of every age will want to hang out! This is the spot where the entire group can play together. And - coming in 2023, we will be adding an additional Queen Suite with Full Bath on that floor as well!

~Indoor Living Spaces~

There’s space enough in this getaway for multi-generational families or several families traveling together. Keep on the lookout for owls–you’ll find them tucked into all of the property’s coziest corners!

The Living Room brings nature inside with its traditional log cabin tongue-and-groove planks, stone details and glorious views. Sink into the comfy leather furniture, light the gas fire and gather here for a glass of wine and warm conversation. Kids will love the Game Lounge on the lower level, home to plenty of indoor entertainment including air hockey and shuffleboard, board games and unique coloring and picture books. There’s bar seating for four in front of a vibrant mural of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains, a comfy reading nook which can double as an extra Twin bed, and a 75” Smart TV with plush leather sectional seating and plenty of snuggly throw blankets to make for memorable movie nights.

~Kitchen & Dining~

The open-plan updated kitchen is located on the main level of the cabin. Grab a coffee from the charming Coffee Station and pull up a stool at the stone-fronted island for a chat or to prepare a feast. Then dine at the rustic table, with seating for 6, under an open Loft ceiling and take in the Forest views!

~Bedrooms & Baths~

2 King Beds, 1 Queen, 3 Twins. *Queen/2 twins in Loft. 3rd Twin bed in Basement Game room.

The property’s main King suite, also accessible from the upper catwalk, is a retreat unto itself, with a toasty fireplace and a sitting area with a 52” Smart TV. There’s also a designated work space, although you won’t want to do any, and a luxurious private bathroom. A rustic stone surround envelops the spacious soaking tub - with the perfect shelf to rest your book and your glass of wine while you unwind after a day of adventure.

The Loft is the perfect haven for kids and the young at heart. With sweeping views of the surrounding forest from its floor-to-ceiling windows, this truly

feels like a Treehouse burrow. Two cozy Twin beds are tucked into

one side of the Loft, each with its own reading lamp for bedtime stories. The other side of the Loft is home to the ultimate treehouse vibe with a comfortable hanging queen bed to snuggle in while looking out at the gorgeous forest view. Plenty of toys and games are here too, the sitting area is always available for a playdate under the trees.

A wonderfully quaint additional King bedroom, with Full Bath, is on the first floor, with the adjoining laundry facilities.

~Outdoor Amenities~

The outdoor spaces at Blissful Burrow are as magical as the indoors. Step out onto the covered wrap-around deck to enjoy a cup of coffee or spend a blissful afternoon watching a rainstorm from the comfort of the outdoor seating area. This is the perfect perch from which to observe the changing seasons. In summertime, take in the towering green pines and oaks and the soft ferns that cover the forest floor. Cast your gaze out onto the glistening pond and winking fireflies. In autumn, you’re surrounded by a vibrant patchwork of reds and yellows, and crisp country air. Bar-B-Q on the outdoor grill here and enjoy any meal al fresco.

There’s plenty more to experience on this wooded property. Why walk downstairs when you can slide from the deck to the soft forest floor below? Yes, there is a built-in slide! It’s the perfect way to kick off an afternoon or evening of outdoor adventure roasting s’mores around the Fire Pit or solving the Owl-themed Scavenger Hunt. Kids, or the young at heart, will appreciate the under-deck Swings and the Chair Swings that make this spot the perfect place to “hang” out. Portable hammocks are also available so you can take a nap in your own special spot among the trees or next to our trickling stream!

There are plenty of hiking trails right off the property, so head out but be prepared to catch a glimpse of Big Foot!

The crown jewel of Blissful Burrow is the secluded outdoor Hot Tub surrounded by Forest, it mimics the feel of a natural hot spring and is the ideal relaxation spot after a day spent hiking or having fun on one of the surrounding rivers or lakes.

- Slide off the Main Deck to the Outdoor Areas and basement Game/TV Room - a highlight for kids (and a selling point for their parents!)

- 2-acre lot in a gated community overlooking a spring-fed pond (No supervision, No swimming), Spring running through the property, Wildlife, Hiking Trails

Our family has visited the Blue Ridge Mountains for summer vacation for many years and we've always dreamed of owning our own little piece of paradise in the area!

Blissful Burrow is that dream come to life. We've put a lot of love and care into the home to make it a wonderful place for a family getaway. We love relaxing on the porch while watching the trees sway and just listen to nature around us. The location is perfect for being remote yet close enough to area attractions!

The home is just a drive to many local waterfalls, hiking trails, shopping in Blue Ridge and river activities. We're excited to make plenty more family memories and are happy to be able to offer Blissful Burrow for you to make memories in as well. Let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay perfect.

Enjoy the Blissful Serenity of this cabin and relax while your here!


We had an amazing time staying at this cabin! It felt secluded but was also close to downtown blue ridge for restaurants and shops. The cabin was very well stocked with no detail spared. The host was also great and proactive in making sure we had everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again!


We absolutely loved our stay at the Blissful Burrow! The cabin is beautiful and on a scenic little, pond. There are so many thoughtful little touches throughout the cabin that made our stay so comfortable and enjoyable. We look forward to returning!


We LOVED the cabin! It was spacious, modern, and clean. We enjoyed cooking and staying in. The outdoor area was my favorite! The hosts were very quick to respond. Everyone on our trip kept saying, “they really thought of everything.” Can’t wait to return!


Amazing, peaceful, relaxing, beautiful are only a few of the words to describe this rental. Every detail is there down to the light switches being labeled. Lovely rental I hope to revisit for years to come! Highly recommend if you and your family need a “getaway” reset.


Perfect spot for a weekend getaway. Amazing amenities, comfortable, clean, easy to find, and private. We will definitely be returning.


Amazing cabin, with plenty of space, a beautiful sunrise, and all the peace needed away from the hustle and bustle. Came with a group of friends and we’re already planning for another longer trip.


Everything was perfect! Cabin was spotless & looked exactly like the pictures. Beds were clean & super comfy. They had everything you could possibly need! They even had dog treats for our dog so they have really thought of everything. We will definitely stay here again!


The attention to detail was amazing. I appreciate that there were so many kid friendly items. We truly enjoyed the house and our stay. Communication was also very great with the host.


This place is unreal, it was perfect for my family and I to get away. Thank you again.


We absolutely loved our stay and can't wait to go back. Their home is the perfect blend of mountain esthetic with modern amenities. The location is stunning and perfect for having easy access to main roads and close proximity to the primary hot spots to visit in the area. The really big win was there was so much for our 9 and 6 year old to do, my daughter told me that at this house, "the fun never ends." From the air hockey to the fire pit to the endless games, our kids were constantly occupied and happy. Daniel and Amy were also super responsive. We highly recommend!
