Property description

This 3500 square foot, gorgeous log home is located in Catawba Falls Preserve, a gated mountain community with paved roads. The community backs up to the Pisgah National Forest. We are located just 8 miles (15 minutes) from the town of Black Mountain and 23 miles (30 minutes) from Asheville. The home has Three master king bedroom suites on levels two and three. Each master suite has it’s own bathroom, 2 with shower/tubs and one with a stand up shower and Jacuzzi tub. There are two bedrooms and two pull out sofa beds on the first level. One of these has 2 double beds and it’s own bathroom with standup shower while the other has a double/twin bunk bed, a separate full bed and its own shower/bath tub.

This property offers 2-3 families a great vacation with total privacy. The property sits on 2 acres with breathtaking views all around. There is a large deck in the back, which is great for entertaining. There is a gas grill and fire pit and plenty of rocking chairs for relaxing. You will love entertaining in the large basement with ping pong and plenty of board games for all ages. We have Verizon Wi-Fi for your internet needs upon request ($10/day). Our kitchen is equipped for large gatherings and has everything you need for a home cooked meal.

For nature lovers, there are numerous hiking trails with streams, rivers and waterfalls. We have a creek with a fire pit area right down a short trail from our back yard! Wildlife is abundant at the Preserve. You are likely to encounter wild turkeys, rabbits, deer, fox, birds, and black bears. Of course, there is no hunting at the Preserve. Thank you for considering our log home for your next vacation.
