Why the Owner Chose Black Mountain: After living in South Florida for 20 years, we searched for an escape up in the mountains. We built this custom log home in 2007 and vacationed in it for 2 years. We enjoyed this incredible lifestyle so much that we decided in to move to Asheville in the summer of 2009. We briefly lived at the lodge and really enjoyed it. We have since opened a medical office in Asheville and need to be close to the practice as well as the kid's school. That is the reason we have now decided to offer this incredible property for others to enjoy. We know you will love this property and the breathtaking mountains as much as we do!
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge: Bordering a vast forest preserve, Catawba Falls presents gated acreage homesites 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 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.
If this property is unavailable, we may have others available. We manage several similar 4-5 bedroom homes in this community.
