Summer 2016 changeover day: FRIDAY, SATURDAY OR SUNDAY

Bordering a vast forest preserve, Catawba Falls presents gated acreage home sites with stunning views of the Pisgah National Forest. You'll feel a thousand miles away in your mountainside dream vacation home, yet you'll be minutes from the culture, careers and conveniences of Asheville and Black Mountain. There are numerous hiking trails, streams and rivers, and waterfalls nearby. Wildlife is abundant in the Preserve. The most common animals that you may encounter are deer, wild turkey, rabbits, birds, fox, and black bears. Of course, there is absolutely no hunting in the Preserve.

Why the owners chose Black Mountain for their mountain getaway:I started the first of many adventures in the mountains of North Carolina in 1979 when I walked thought the gates of Camp Ridgecrest for Boys located just five minutes from Black Mountain, NC. That year started an annual summer tradition of hiking, camping, paddling and clean mountain living that lasted until 1987. After that year, I returned to the Black Mountain area for many summers to attend various camp type reunions and hiking trips. These return trips to the mountains were always a yearly highlight, but over time, the trips became less and less to eventually none at all. However, in 2006, my oldest son enrolled at Camp Ridgecrest for Boys and the return to the hills once again awakened many long forgotten memories. The cool fresh air, the lush green mountains, the deer, the turkey, and the cool, crisp mountain mornings instantly reignited a long forgotten passion for the area. That same summer we decided to build a cabin so my wife and I could be in the mountains while our son was attending camp. After touring many of the areas various available properties, we discovered the beautiful development of Catawba Falls Preserve and the building soon began. We currently have three boys who all attend Camp Ridgecrest and we have an awesome retreat buried deep in the mountains complete with a clear water stream and waterfall. However, be forewarned, once the sights and smells of the mountains of N.C gets into your blood, you will never again be the same!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Homeowners, Your cabin is amazing! Ourselves and another family vacationed in your home last June when taking our girls to camp, and we had an awesome time. The home is spacious with beautiful yet comfortable furnishings. The kids loved having their own place downstairs to watch TV and play games or ping pong. The adults enjoyed sitting on the back porch rockers watching the sun set over the mountains with a nice bottle of wine. It was very relaxing. Our favorite part was taking the path down the back yard to the waterfall - our kids played in the water for hours. It was also nice how close the cabin is to everything - if we felt like eating in, we grabbed food from the nearby grocery store and cooked or grilled-- the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to prepare a meal. Or, some nights we headed out to the cute shops and restarurants nearby -- our favorite being the farm-to-table restaurant "Black Bird" in the Cheshire Village. It was a perfect vacation and we look forward to staying in your home again. Thank you! :)

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house for our needs. It’s spacious and accommodated our party (6 adults, one toddler, one dog) well. It’s definitely remote, which is what we wanted - about 15-20 minutes to Black Mountain, 30-40 to Asheville. The porch is nice and we used the fire pit once. We enjoyed Catawba Falls and hikes at Montreat. Of course we checked out the Biltmore. We loved the Straightaway Cafe and Hickory Nut Gap Farm; both great for kids. We saw a baby bear twice!

Thanks for sharing your lovely home!

Wonderful Home for family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

You immediately know as you enter the cabin you made the right choice. Our family really enjoyed gathering around the fireplace to celebrate Christmas and be together. The home was decorated for Christmas complete with a tree.

The hikes to the Catawba Falls and Upper Fall were spectacular .

We enjoyed spending time in nearby Black Mountain and Asheville.

It is the most beautiful and perfect home to enjoy with family and friends.

Great Family Week!

  • 5 of 5

Sydney Falls was a great getaway week for us and adult kids with spouses. Even got the grandparents to come for a few days. Plenty of space and the master on main was perfect. Very secluded on private road. Beautiful sound of creek and waterfall from back porch. Ping pong in the afternoon and fire pit at night on back porch. Open kitchen to den and plenty of space to spread out for chill time.

Overall great experience!

The perfect mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

Sydney Falls was the perfect place for a gathering with our extended family. The home was beautiful with so many amenities. So much to do in and around Black Mountain, and was only a short distance from Asheville. The property managers do a wonderful job with this home.
