Overview

Property Details

Updated: Dec 17, 2014
5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 10-12) --- 2 Master Suites on separate levels

If you are looking for a unique mountain getaway experience, you have found it! This is the place where family quality time, fun and memories will be made. This immaculately maintained 4300 square foot, 3 level, newer custom log home will meet and exceed your expectations for a mountain vacation.

The home is located in Catawba Falls Preserve, a gated mountain community preserve with paved roads located just 8 miles (15 minutes) from the town of Black Mountain and 23 miles (30 minutes) from Asheville. The community backs up to the Pisgah National Forest and is the home for an abundance of wildlife including black bear, deer, turkey, birds and many other animals.

This home is set up perfectly for 2 families or multiple couples to vacation together. There are two king master king bedroom suites on levels two and three. Each master suite has a large jacuzzi tub, double granite sinks, and a walk in shower. Bedroom 3 on the upper level has two twin beds with a full bathroom and is a perfect bedroom for the kids. Bedroom 4 on the lower level has a queen bed, a sofa and one twin bed. Bedroom 5 on the lower level has a queen bed. The home can accommodate 10 adults comfortably in beds. Much of the house cabin decor was acquired locally in Black Mountain and Asheville.

The property is very quiet, peaceful and private and sits on 2 acres with breathtaking views all around. The deck wraps around with plenty of seating and relaxing in the hammock and swing chairs. There is a large back deck for entertaining with a hot tub, picnic bench, BBQ, table and chairs and loungers. This is the place for relaxing and enjoying the long range mountain views and listening to the sounds of nature.

The game room is where the fun is! You will love entertaining and watching the big game here with a pub style wet bar featuring a pool table, ping-pong, 2 arcade games, TV and shuffleboard. Your kids will not be bored at this house! For nature lovers, there is hiking, waterfalls and abundant wildlife in the Preserve.

The home and kitchen are very well stocked with all your basic supplies needed for your vacation week. The beds are all made up prior to your arrival and we provide towels and linens.

We keep our availability calendar up to date. Please check our calendar before inquiring about availability. We respond to all email inquiries within a few hours. If you inquire by phone and there is no answer, please leave a message with the dates requested and any other details and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We have a 3 night minimum requirement in the off season (Sept, Nov-May excluding holidays and spring break) and a 7 night minimum in season (Memorial Day through Labor Day and October with a Saturday turnover) and all holidays and spring break. Please do not inquire for less than 3 nights.

***If this property is booked, please inquire about my other similar affiliated properties.

Please check out all of our prior guest reviews. This is our 4th season of vacation renting and we continue to upgrade and add amenities to our home for our guests' based on their recommendations. This house truly is a one of a kind mountain experience. We make it very easy for our guests so they can enjoy their vacation. Thank you for considering our log home for your mountain vacation.

Enjoy a really unique getaway. You will feel away from it all yet you will be only 15 minutes (8 miles) to Black Mountain and 30 minutes (23 miles) to Asheville, NC.

Why the Owner Chose Black Mountain: After living in South Florida for 20 years, we searched for an escape up in the mountains. We built this custom log home in 2007 and vacationed in it for 2 years. We enjoyed this incredible lifestyle so much that we decided in to move to Asheville in the summer of 2009. We briefly lived at the lodge and really enjoyed it. We have since opened a medical office in Asheville and need to be close to the practice as well as the kid's school. That is the reason we have now decided to offer this incredible property for others to enjoy. We know you will love this property and the breathtaking mountains as much as we do!

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge: Bordering a vast forest preserve, Catawba Falls presents gated acreage homesites with stunning views of the Pisgah National Forest. You'll feel a thousand miles away in your mountainside dream vacation home, yet you'll be minutes from the culture and conveniences of Asheville and Black Mountain. There are numerous hiking trails, streams and rivers, and waterfalls nearby. Wildlife is abundant in the Preserve. The most common animals that you may encounter are deer, wild turkey, rabbits, birds, fox, and black bears. Of course, there is absolutely no hunting in the Preserve.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house is gorgeous both inside and out. Its location is ideal for the get away from everything type of vacation, yet close to the fabulous town of Black Mountain, NC. The bedrooms are wonderful and spacious, and laid out well for extended families with rooms for adults and kids. The living room is more like a great room with a beautiful wrap-around deck up one story off the ground with a fantastic view.

The kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment, as we ate in more than out. The drive into this property is quite a winding road, so plan your trips well so it is not a problem. The hiking in the community is nice, especially to the Lower Catawba Falls, which the guys did with all 4 grandkids ages 7,5,4,& 2. So hiking in the area was one of our favorite things to do. It is close to Asheville for all its activities, but local fun is easy to find. The hot tub was wonderful especially the first evening when temps got below 40 deg. We did have a little problem with the heating (first use since last spring), but contacting the owner was easy and we figured out it was a weak battery in the thermostat. The Wi-Fi made looking up activities and planning around the weather a breeze (no pun intended), since cell phone coverage on the mountain was limited (Verizon worked fine).

Wow! Perfect place to be together inside and out.

We met for a sibling celebration and the space was perfect. The open floor plan allowed us to be together. The deck outside was another great place to hang out. The kitchen was equipped with everything you would need with lots of space. The grill and hot tub were great. All the beds were comfortable. We highly recommend this home. The owners were great to work with!

Beautiful House and great owner to work with!

  • 5 of 5
This house was wonderful! Exactly as the owner described. One item he left out was the water closet (toilets) in each of the master bathrooms is separated by a door which we loved. One person can get ready while the other is "you know". However, there are no doors between the bathrooms and the master bedrooms although there is a tiny hallway where the closet is located. Not a big deal for couples but just something to be aware of. Our teenagers (4 in the group) spent hours in the game room mostly playing ping pong and shuffle board. Never turned on the video games. Loved the small fridge in the game room for their drinks. There is also an extra fridge in the garage -- quite handy. Fantastic views of the mountains. We saw deer, wild turkey, and a ground hog but no bear. Thirty minutes away from Chimney Rock and Lake Lure (great lake). Twenty minutes to the grocery store and town of Black Mountain and I--40. Plenty of space, especially on the decks, for people to spread out. No car noise just great views. Large kitchen and big dining table. Also liked the kitchen bar chairs where people not preparing dinner could sit and visit and share appetizers. We could hear everyone as they went up and down the stairs and footsteps (no big deal just something to think about as you assign rooms -- if you a light sleeper you might want to sleep on the first floor). Michael (the owner) was outstanding to work with from the first inquiry email and answered all questions as they popped up during the week. Much better than dealing with a management company. Highly recommend this house if you are looking for a larger home! There are a lot of steps ---if that is a problem for you and a very steep driveway if you have a low sitting car.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful five star review of our log home and property. We really appreciate it! We are happy you had a fun week at our mountain paradise. Please come back and stay again anytime.

Just to clarify....the top floor master #1 does have a door separating the bedroom from the bathroom. The main floor master bedroom #2 is separated by a hallway with a closet from the bathroom (as correctly stated in the review).

Thanks again,
Michael and Bernadette

Family Mountain Vacation

  • 5 of 5
I cherish family time. As a Mom of two grown children, one witn a new baby and the other newly engaged, there were a lot of requests. I web searched for the perfect home for my family vacation. This home had all the amenities I was looking for. It was an ideal location for the plans we had. The girls wanted a spa day and there was one in the area that was the Best, Some of us wanted to go day hiking one day. Trails were nearby and the owner had it clearly written down for us to find. Everyone wanted to go to the Christmas house tour of lights in Asheville.
The grocery store nearby was as nice as they come! The home was clean, well equipped, and comfortable. Game room a plus as was the hot tub! All details to run everything was clearly written for easy use. No complaints! I highly recommend this home for a perfect vacation any season of the year. Thank you Michael for sharing your home with us and for helping us in every way you did! Merry Christmas to All and God Bless:-)

Mountain Vacation

  • 5 of 5
I booked this vacation for my family. The owner could not have been nicer as I had to reschedule our dates after booking. He was always so helpful. The home is fabulous in every way. It was comfortable, clean, well equipped with everything we needed, beautiful view, and most convienent to Biltmore, Grove Park, hiking trails, and a super nice grocery store. We have rented mountain homes for many years and this was in the top five. One last comment was how helpful it was to have written instructions for everything that may come up. We had one issue with the hot tub but after a phone call to the owner it was resolved immediately. Thanks Michael. I know anyone looking to rent a vacation home would be as pleased our family.

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a long weekend at this beautiful home for a family birthday celebration!
From the minute we pulled up we were so impressed with the beauty and quality of this home... Such nice, high- end finishes. It was the perfect size for our group of 11. Everyone was very comfortable.

We enjoyed the game room and all of the outdoor seating options with beautiful views.The new hot tub was a great touch too.

It was a perfect getaway. We were in easy access to great restaurants in Black Mountainand Asheville.

Wonderful trip! We hope we can get back soon.
