About Tannya and Blake Hughes:
We honeymooned at “Pilot’s Perch”™ when we were married in April 2014. We so enjoyed our time there, and were so relaxed and refreshed after our stay, that we knew we would have to come back some time. That return visit happened in November 2017. During our stay this second time, we were presented with the most wonderful opportunity of potentially purchasing “Pilot’s Perch”™ log cabin as our very own personal vacation home in the Blue Ridge Mountains. How cool is that?!?! We thought it would be very cool to own the place where we honeymooned!!! We were very excited about this opportunity and began extensive conversations with the then owners of “Pilot’s Perch”™, Clint and Roxanne. Since we loved “Pilot’s Perch”™ so much, we decided to make it our very own home away from home. It has given us much joy to have made this purchase and have such a quiet and peaceful place we can go to and get away from all the stress of our normal, daily lives and relax and unwind.
We made many beautiful, new and happy memories at the cabin and have been very blessed to be able to share “Pilot’s Perch”™ that we thought the only thing that would make it even more great would be to have TWO cabins to share with others. So, in June 2019, we bought the cabin next door to Pilot's Perch and named it Pilot's Perch Too. We hope you will enjoy the cabin as much as we do and make many beautiful, new and happy memories here as we have. The cabin is beautifully furnished and decorated with all the conveniences of home, but we will continue to update and add amenities to enhance our guests' mountain log cabin experience. You will find the only negative thing about “Pilot’s Perch Too'™ is having to leave it to go home.
Why Tannya and Blake Hughes chose Fancy Gap:
That view!!! We chose the Fancy Gap cabin for its breathtaking views and close proximity to our Virginia family. It is also great that we are minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Pilot’s Perch Too™ is really close and accessible to many area attractions. The cabin is 25 minutes from Mount Airy, NC to the south (Andy Griffith's hometown) and 25 minutes from Galax, VA to the north (lots of antique stores and quaint shops). There are several wineries nearby: Chateau Morrisette (our favorite), JoLo Winery (our second favorite), West Wind Winery, Shelton Vineyards, Iron Heart and Old North State Winery. Mabry Mill is just a short scenic ride down the Parkway and the New River Trail State Park is only a short drive up I-77. 'Pilot's Perch Too'™ is located in an area in which you can always find something to do or you can just relax and enjoy doing nothing.
What makes this Cabin unique:
'Pilot's Perch Too'™ has a large deck which offers amazing views of the Piedmont, Sauratown Mountain, Hanging Rock Mountain and Pilot Mountain, the cabin's namesake. On clear days, you can actually see the tops of the skyscrapers in Winston-Salem, NC which are approximately 52 miles away. The cabin is furnished with some really unique furniture and accessories that were hand-picked especially for the cabin. We have also tried to provide all the conveniences of home. Chances are, if you have it at home, you'll find it at 'Pilot's Perch Too'™. The development in which the cabin is located has 2 ponds for our guests' enjoyment. (You should see the size of the catfish in one of them!) There is a covered bridge over a nearby stream with picnic tables where visitors may enjoy a picnic lunch. We have waterfalls for you to enjoy climbing, and it is an everyday occurrence to see wild turkeys, deer and other wildlife around the cabin and in the development. You might even spot an occasional black bear!

Beautiful place, super clean, and great view. Awesome communication with owner, and very easy process. Would recommend for anyone who wants a relaxing getaway, just minutes from Blue Ridge Parkway.

We had a wonderful time at pilots perch too. The view was breathtaking. The house was immaculate. Very private but not to far from the local town. Plenty to do or you could just relax and enjoy the view at the house.

My wife and I needed a get-away for or birthdays and I must say, we could not have chosen better time spent, than the time we had at this beautiful cabin. The awesome views took our breath away. Everything at Pilots Perch Too is perfection and I wish I could give it a higher rating than 5 as it is definitely a 10+ in our eyes. Thank you to our wonderful hosts Tannya and Blake and please don’t change a thing. We will be back for another great visit very soon.

This cabin was very enjoyable. Leaving it was bitter sweet. Very comfortable and the views were amazing. Communication was by far the best. Definitely recommend for relaxation and peace and quiet. We saw deer and 3 bears for the first time.

A bit of a drive to Martinsville for the race, but what beautiful scenery!! The cabin was exactly what we hoped for. We were there for the peak of the fall foliage , what a view from the cabin!! Surrounding area of Blue Ridge trail was beautiful. We would definitely stay again.
Stayed October, 2021
This is a beautiful getaway hidden in the mountains on a hilltop overlooking a wonderful valley. A perfect view of Pilot Mtn and at night a astronomy buff the whole southern sky is there. Immaculately clean and wonderfully stocked you won't want to leave!!
Stayed October, 2021
We had a lovely 3 night stay at this cozy cabin with an amazing view. Just off the blue ridge parkway, we enjoyed some nearby hiking and the Chateau Morrisette Winery, but mostly we spent our time relaxing and watching the early fall weather roll through the area from the back porch.
Stayed October, 2021
We had an amazing time, we didn't want to leave. The view was stunning. The property and neighborhood were well maintained. The house was very clean and cozy. The people were all friendly. The area is very quiet and peaceful. Highly recommended!
