About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 7-12

The Best in Mountain Living and relaxation... Welcomes you in your Log Lodge hideaway, nestled in mountains of North Carolina near Black Mountain and 20 minutes from downtown Asheville …enjoy a quiet evening sitting in the outdoor living area on the main floor deck that overlooks a fully treed deep mountain hollow. Warm yourself from the evening chill wrapped in a blanket, comforted by the flickering light from the outdoor fireplace. The sound of the woodlands at twilight is enhanced by the babbling creek that runs at the bottom of the property. The only houses visible are high on a distant peak. You are at peace.
You wake in the morning, alive and refreshed. You serve yourself a steaming hot cup of Joe in the gourmet kitchen. You casually walk outside on the deck & settle in the quaint outdoor eating area. Here you smile & breathe in the fresh air as you listen to the creek & watch the humming birds feed. You’ll find an unusual sense of energy in this 4,500 plus square foot, three story mountain log Lodge.

2,800 two story deck, nestled in a gated mountain preserve.

Close to downtown Black Mountain, Asheville, Lake Lure, Chimney Rock and other small mountain towns and recreation areas, your mountain hideaway is easily accessible with fully paved roads. No steep roads, no severe mountain top winds. The approach to the Lodge is serene with only an occasional glimpse of deer, or turkey.

There is plenty of ample parking for your family & friends in the large oval area in front of the Lodge. The home has a large covered front porch with a swinging cedar bench, and rocking chairs.

The wheel-chair friendly main level features a large Master. French doors lead to an outdoor covered living area on the deck with an outdoor, wood burning fireplace. The king-size master bed features a Sleep Number mattress.

There is a large ensuite bath with Jacuzzi tub, double sinks & a large, custom 6 foot rain head shower with seat, heated slate floors & large walk-in closet. A second bedroom is next to the Master which has a pop-up trundle & its own customized bathroom and plenty of toys in the closet for children.

There is a large fully stocked gourmet kitchen with top of the line appliances, granite counter tops, & high end cabinetry. The vaulted great room has a gas assisted wood burning fireplace & is decorated in a manner both rustic & luxurious. The dining area easily seats 8 with an additional 4 seats at the counter. Additional folding tables and chairs are provided. The home has a large laundry & hobby area. There is a full washer/dryer & plenty of counter space, cabinets & a built in desk.

The game room, located on the 3rd floor, has air hockey, foosball and electronic darts, but can double as a 5th bedroom with a coach which folds out to a comfortable queen bed.

The lower level has a full rustic bar & eating area, a refrigerator/ice maker, bar sink, & microwave. The bar area has two French doors that exit out to an additional level of decking with several lounging areas & a hammock tucked away in a corner. Opposite the adult play area is a childrens game room with a hobby table, games & a full Wii Set-up. The Lodges media room, with 165 inches of high definition video & heart thumping a 7.1 Theater Sound System, may become your favorite room of all of your favorite rooms.Two additional bedrooms are separated by a common bath. The bath has multiple sinks & a Jacuzzi shower tub that will be perfect for guests & family to relax after a hard day of adventure. The 3rd bedroom is the bunk room. The rustic log furniture features two sets of bunk beds, with full beds on the bottom & twins on top. The 4th bedroom doubles as a second master with a king size bed and antique furniture.French doors at the back lead from this out to the covered deck.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We're a husband and wife Team, one who works in Banking, the other who consults in Banking. The mountains and the outdoors have always been an important part of our lives. In year's past, we've actively hiked, mountain biked, and enjoyed white water. The mountains have always called to us, and we've always sought to share what we love. Now with 4 kids (one still at home) and 7 grandchildren, the importance of combining family and adventure is important to us. We built this home to eventually retire to, so we built it high end and handicap friendly.

Why the Owner Chose Black Mountain, NC, USA:
Being a graduate of Appalachian State University and spending a lot of years skiing and enjoying the outdoors, the male part of the team was immediately drawn to the Boone Blowing Rock area. The female part of the team saw nothing but two small towns with a limited amount to do and to experience. To her, the Asheville area presented a wealth of different experiences. In year's past, the couple had spent many hours hiking, and rafting in and around the Asheville. The memories of the many small mountain towns, the festivals, and recreational activities soon drove the decision in the right direction. Upon exiting the car after viewing many lots in and around the area, the sound of the babbling creek at the back of the lot is what made the decision. It was a great decision.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Serenity and peace. Accessibility and 'self-contained' adventure. The Preserve is a gated acreage home site which borders the Pisgah National Forest. There are hiking trails, streams, and water falls in the preserve. There is an abundance of nature. We have seen bears, turkeys, rabbits, deer, raccoons and skunks. This is all possible because there is NO HUNTING! You are just minutes from Black Mountain, Asheville, Hendersonville, Lake Lure and Chimney Rock. There are a large number of crafts show and 'events' happening all the time.
