About the owner: Julie and I love coming to the mountains with our four children, Noah, Christian, Anna and Ashlyn (pictured at nearby Waterrock Knob). We've been married for 16 years and plan on retiring at Blue Moon!
Why the Owner Chose Asheville: We fell in love with this lodge because of the large rooms and huge covered decks. It will allow our entire family to get together even after the kids grow and start families of their own. It's away from it all, but close to everything!! The stress of everyday life just melted away the minute we stepped onto the porch!
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge: The large size of all of the bedrooms is something that we couldn't find anywhere else. That combined with the 4,000 sf of covered porch made this lodge unforgettable!
