Hoot Owl Hollow

What if you could get away from it all and still walk to the quaint shops and restaurants of Mentone and even walk to The Brow to take in a magnificent mountain sunset?

Down a sleepy road, tucked amongst tall hardwoods, rhododendron and magnolia lie a hidden gem.  Hoot Owl Hollow will delight you with its rustic charm and modern comfort.  After extensive renovation, this 1927 home blends repurposed materials, art, and whimsy with contemporary accents, creating a comfort level that only good design can provide as well as the quirkiness found in older structures.

As you enter the ‘Hoot’s screened front porch (aka Cat Daddy’s Hiddee-Ho) you will feel as though you have stepped into another world.  Hand painted wood floor, twinkle lights, comfy rocking chairs, and porch swing welcome you to relax and sit a spell.  Note to Self: great place to start and end your day, listen to the birds, and if your are lucky, the creek will be running.  In no time, the worries of the world melt off your shoulders, and you  haven’t even crossed the threshold.  You will  experience a feast for the senses as you open the front door.  The white wood walls lightens the atmosphere while highlighting the colorful, eclectic artwork.  Behind the comfortable leather recliners, a professional kitchen with bay windows beckons.  You notice re-purposed wood(once the old kitchen floor) framing stainless appliances including a 6 top gas cook top, butcher block counter tops and the perfect island for gathering around the hub of the home.  This kitchen has everything you need to create the  perfect meal.  The open floor plan to kitchen, living room, dining room, and bar makes entertaining a breeze.  Floor to ceiling window in the dining room provide a beautiful view into the woods, even from the living room sofa.

The original wood burning stone fireplace is the focal point of this space and when needed can really put out the heat.  A few unique features designed by the owners include a dining table, made from local cherry with a base of repurposed mahogany, as well as a metal sculpture dividing the back entry from the dining room, representing a stylized version of the view of the hardwoods.  Walking down the hallway you will find an assortment of books, games, and movies in the bookcases along with many family photos.  A half bath/ laundry is off the hallway.

 The home has 2 king bedrooms.  Master  bedroom suite features a distinctive Indonesian floor to ceiling headboard, TV, and relaxing leather chair.  The master bath is no less distinctive with an open shower and an adjoining outdoor shower and hot tub. The cozy Guest Bedroom has an airy mountain feel, with handmade wood headboard and side table.  A bright and colorful guest bath adds pizzazz with pedestal sink and soaking tub/shower combo.

For a festive barbecue, an outside dining table and gas grill are located on the rock patio behind the kitchen.  Build your own ‘Fue de Joie’ at the fire pit just over the creek from the font porch, relax in the hammock or in the Faerie Grotto surrounded by large rhododendron adorned with Mardi Gras beads. In the hollow there are plenty of places, spaces and opprotunites to lollygag, to clear your mind and reconnect.  We like to say at Hoot Owl Hollow…Magic is Available!
