Black Mountain lodge description

This luxury mountain log home is located in the beautiful gated community of Catawba Falls Preserve. The community backs up to the Pisgah National Forest. Behind the home, there is a knee deep river with a waterfall right on the property. The home is 4200 square ft and was built in 2007. The community backs up to the Pisgah National Forest. The home has a master king bedroom on the main level and 2 queen bedrooms on the top level. The lower level features 2 bunk rooms with 2 bunk beds each separated by a large play room. The property sits on over 3 acres with mountain views all around. About 50 yards behind the house is a small river with a waterfall. The deck wraps around with plenty of seating and relaxing in the hammock swings and rocking chairs.

Summer 2014 changeover day: FRIDAY, SATURDAY OR SUNDAY

Bordering a vast forest preserve, Catawba Falls presents gated acreage home sites 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, careers 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.

Why the owners chose Black Mountain for their mountain getaway:
I started the first of many adventures in the mountains of North Carolina in 1979 when I walked thought the gates of Camp Ridgecrest for Boys located just five minutes from Black Mountain, NC. That year started an annual summer tradition of hiking, camping, paddling and clean mountain living that lasted until 1987. After that year, I returned to the Black Mountain area for many summers to attend various camp type reunions and hiking trips. These return trips to the mountains were always a yearly highlight, but over time, the trips became less and less to eventually none at all. However, in 2006, my oldest son enrolled at Camp Ridgecrest for Boys and the return to the hills once again awakened many long forgotten memories. The cool fresh air, the lush green mountains, the deer, the turkey, and the cool, crisp mountain mornings instantly reignited a long forgotten passion for the area. That same summer we decided to build a cabin so my wife and I could be in the mountains while our son was attending camp. After touring many of the areas various available properties, we discovered the beautiful development of Catawba Falls Preserve and the building soon began. We currently have three boys who all attend Camp Ridgecrest and we have an awesome retreat buried deep in the mountains complete with a clear water stream and waterfall. However, be forewarned, once the sights and smells of the mountains of N.C gets into your blood, you will never again be the same!
