Welcome to Mountain Laurel Lookout. You will think you are standing on top of the world when you stay with us.

You can watch the sunrise from the front porch and at the end of the day, watch it set from the back porch as you swing in our very own ski lift chair. Gaze out over the 7 mountain ranges and view Mount Mitchell, Grandfather Mountain, The Blueridge Parkway and the magical glow of the little town lights as dusk settles in for the evening. This magnificent Log Home is furnished with facilities insuring your stay to be not only comfortable but also memorable.

This home has 2000 square feet of living space with views from every window plus a full daylight basement with game room. We have three Bedrooms with the Master Bedroom on the main level, an elegant Guest bedroom with an amazing view plus a very cool kids bedroom with 2 sets of bunks. There is no waiting with three and a half, top of the line Baths.

Spend some time in the loft area enjoying the tranquil scenery or head down to the basement game room for a round of air hockey, ping-pong or foosball. There are Washer and Dryer accommodations on site so you’re good to go if you need a quick load of fresh clothes.

We are only 10 minutes off of I-40, just East of Asheville. Black Mountain is about 15 to 20 minutes away with a brand new, huge Ingles so you can pick up anything you need. There is a Gas grill on the sundeck and a fully appointed Kitchen complete with granite, solid surface counter tops and stainless steel appliances for preparing any size meal.

When you stay with us you have an incredible location vantage point. You can easily get to the Biltmore House, Downtown Asheville, Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, Lake James, Linville Caverns, Snow skiing at Boone, Flat Rock Playhouse, Whitewater rafting, Trout fishing, Hiking, Horse back riding... which are some great ideas for day trips.

Please click on the VIDEO tab to get a better idea what we are all about.

We almost named this incredible place Scenic Overlook because that’s what it feels like when you're there.

We know that we are very blessed to own this magical, unique place and we hope you enjoy your stay as much as we do when we are lucky enough to visit. Please send us an email so we can book your vacation today!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

Why the Owner Chose Old Fort, NC, USA:
We chose our mountain to build our cabin on because it has the amazing views, no highway noise, Verizon works there, it doesn't get too much snow and it has easy access to I-40 to Asheville. We and our good neighbors the Morgan's bought the top of our mountain ridge together. We have over 27 acres between us with only our two homes.
