Property description

Convenient to everything...but a million miles away. This 3 bedroom, 2 bath log home is located on beautiful Gateway Mountain near Black Mountain and Lake Lure.

Enjoy beautiful layered mountain views from the deck, toast marshmallows in the outdoor fire pit, cook--or don't cook--in a modern kitchen, curl up on a comfy sofa and enjoy a crackling fire.

Surround yourself with natural stone and beautiful woodwork, fresh air and a night sky full of stars. This property is located on 5+ acres, is gated and very private. A true getaway.

Located on Gateway Mountain, amenities include a private lake for swimming, a trout pond, hiking trails and a waterfall park.

Head into Asheville for great restaurants, shopping and entertainment. Lake Lure is nearby for big lake swimming and boating. Explore quirky shops and restaurants in Black Mountain. Or never step foot off the mountain. Your vacation. Your choice.
