About Loraine Buckner

Lorianne’s perfect weekend getaway with breathtaking views and hospitality beyond our expectations
My husband and I, our two friends, and two puppies spent a relaxing weekend in black mountain and had an amazing stay thanks to Lorainne and her husband. Their cabin was everything we could ask for and more. The charming decorations provided a very homie atmosphere similar to spending time at grandmas house, and made our stay extremely comfortable. Their grill is brand new, all plates and utensils for grilling, eating, and roasting s’mores were provided and easy to find, and the views were absolutely breathtaking. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone and everyone, and would love to have an opportunity to stay at it again in the future!
Peacefilled. . .Plug Free Mountain Retreat
Just returned home from a weekend stay and miss the tranquility and simplicity of this beautiful mountain home a few miles from downtown Black Mountain, NC. From the moment we drove in on a rainy Friday evening, we felt like we were coming "home." Loraine left the lights on for us just like Mother and Daddy used to do and the cute, cozy peaceful home lived up to our expectations for a time away and much needed rest. But, we were close enough to Black Mountain to enjoy their Saturday Morning Market at the Baptist Church, then on to the Folk Art Center in Asheville tossed in with some thrifting and antiquing along the way. And the "sweet" little Ice Cream place just outside of town on Hwy 70 more than met these girlfriends idea of a good ending to a full day! Waking up to the mountain views, listening to the bubbling brook from the front porch swing to simply enjoying the beautiful "country" gardens around the home, put a smile on our faces each morning. We can't wait to plan another weekend or week away. . . Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. . .
Very clean, specious, peaceful and safe!
I had a great relaxing time in this house. Loraine has done a great job to make my stay comfortable and peaceful. The place is extremely clean with everything you need to make the stay stress free and plaesent. The house gives a great feeling of safety and love. Thank you Loraine for sharing your house and most of all your memories.
Lorraine was a wonderful hostess.
However, the cottage was decorated in early 50's. The sun room was the best place to take a nap, do your yoga, or curl up with a book. No cell phone reception or internet, but lots of books.
Beautiful views and plenty of privacy.
We had a wonderful time at the Azalea House. The kids enjoyed the outdoors, playing badminton, horse shoes and venturing to the creek. There was plenty of space for them to run and play. We built a fire ad made s'mores in the evenings. It seemed like we were worlds away from everything, however we could easily get to a store and restaurants.
This place is everything the name says: Charming, Cozy and Peaceful! Great Stay at a Great Price. Thank you for opening your Azalea house to us.
Absolutely Charming and Peaceful!
Came to Azalea House over President's Day weekend to meet with out-of-town family. Loraine, from the very beginning, was so hospitable, warm, and greeting. She made our stay so well cared-for!
The home is immaculately clean! The Azalea House is exactly like going to "Grandma's" with lots of trinkets around. Very cozy and comfortable...just like Grandma's!
Thank you for allowing us to stay at your home, Loraine. We are so sorry for John's mother's passing. She and your family are in our prayers! God bless!
