About Matt and Katie

Our family currently lives in Ohio but our hearts are in North Carolina. We just love North Carolina and the Lake Lure area in particular.

Matt and Katie purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Matt and Katie chose Blue Ridge Mountains

This luxurious property has the best views of Chimney Rock Mountain in our gated community with resort amenities. The cabin is nestled on 4.1 acres in a 100-acre gated community and is very secluded, tranquil, and relaxing. We love the area and love the great motorcycle roads and hiking in this part of the country.

What makes this cabin unique

We fell in love with this home for the spectacular views of Chimney Rock Mountain and the secluded feel of this gated community. The great room is just spectacular with the vaulted ceilings and gorgeous views. It is a warm and inviting log home. Having access to Rumbling Bald Resort makes our stay here even more enjoyable. To learn more about the great Rumbling Bald Resort amenities, please visit www.rumblingbald.com.

The following are just a few area attractions: Area Hiking Trails; Ashville, NC; Bennett Classic Antique Auto Museum: Biltmore Estate; Black Mountain and the Swannanoa Valley; Blue Ridge Parkway; Boulderline Adventure Program; Canopy Ridge Farm Zipline; Cedar Creek Stables; The Chamber of Hickory Nut Gorge; Chimney Rock State Park; Chimney Rock Village; Grandfather Mountain; Green River Adventures; Historic Places (The Bechtler House, Bostic Lincoln Center, and Carl Sandburg Home); Kidsenses - Children's Museum; Lake Lure Adventure Company; Lake Lure Fishing Excursions; Lake Lure Flowering Bridge; Linville Caverns; Motorcycle Roads; North Carolina Arboretum; Pearson's Falls - Saluda, NC; Rumbling Bald Bouldering Climbing; Rumbling Bald Resort; The Gorge Zip Line; The Right Track Toy Train Museum; Wineries, Distillers, and Brewhouses (Biltmore Estate & Winery, Sierra Nevada Brewery, Blue Ridge Distilling, Mountain Brook Vineyards, Overmountain Vineyards, Parker-Binns Vineyard, Ruff’ton Brewhouse, and The Brew House & Bistro).

In addition, our cabin is very close to great motorcycle roads.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Overlook was perfect! We had a weekend getaway with friends and family and the cabin was so comfortable with an incredible view. Matt was very accommodating and helped with anything we needed!

Relaxation at its finest!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Overlook for our "family-moon" in late February. We were super-impressed at the location of the cabin and floored with its breathtaking views! The owner was fantastic with communication and helped us quickly lengthen our stay at the last minute.

The cabin was super clean and had tons of great features so the kids were completely entertained so we could have some quiet time. We felt safe and secure at the cabin. Quaint grocery within 8 miles of the cabin. Very convenient!! We hated leaving but we will be back! This cabin could easily accommodate two families wanting to vacation together. Would highly recommend The Overlook. Well worth the price.

Owner's Response: The mountain views are from our cabin are indeed priceless! And, yes, our cabin really is the perfect place to celebrate with family and friends so we are so happy that you had an amazing “family-moon” getaway! We pride ourselves on being available to our guests 24/7, and we are delighted that we could extend your stay with us – we only wish that you could have stayed longer. Thank you for commenting on the fact that our cabin is super clean, safe, and secure because we work very hard to ensure that our guests have everything they need to make our cabin their own. And there is so much to do in and around the cabin – the opportunities for both “adventure” and “peace and quiet” are endless. You never know how much you appreciate a quality grocery store until you can’t find one, so we are very blessed to have an Ingles Markets conveniently down the road from our cabin. Thank you for the wonderful review and high recommendation, and we are delighted to hear that you are planning staying with us again!

Spectacular Views & Amazing Beds!

  • 5 of 5

We are from Savannah GA and was forced to evacuate due to Hurrican Irma. I don’t have words to express how wonderful this homeowner was during this stressfull time… He was responsive, kind and helped us with everything we needed. He truly went above and beyond to help us.

There were 10 of us in all, ranging in age from 10 to 55 and two pets. The cabin is huge… and could have accommodated more if needed. We really enjoyed the cabin and all it had to offer.

The cabin was very comfortable for our large group… It is very well cared for and is clean, spacious and the beds are amazing. Everyone had a comfortable bed and bathroom and the kitchen has everything you will need and more.

The adults enjoyed quiet time on the deck with spectacular views of the mountains and the sunset… there are around 12 adirondack chairs there, so that you can sit and enjoy coffee or a cocktail.

The living room is large with plenty of seating, even for a group our size. The large dining table allowed us to have breakfast and dinner and play board games at night. The kids loved having their own space in the basement with the pool / air hockey table and the media room.

The yard is small, and parts of it are quite steep, but this made it more fun for our kids (ages 10 & 14). Both gas fireplaces were used expecially the one on the deck… that was amazing!

The neighborhood is quite with the closest home being several acres away. It was a quick 10-minute drive to downtown Lake Lure which is small and Hendersonville is about 20 minutes away… it has everything. We also used the new Ingles grocery store which is just minutes away and it carries everything you will need.

The drive to the cabin is steep and twisty, so keep that in mind when arriving after dark, but the house felt remote and relaxing and surrounded by nature, while still being a 10-minute ride from town and very easy to find. There is plenty of parking at the house which was nice because we had several cars.

We didn’t have time to use the “resort passes” but we have been there before and loved renting a pontoon boat and exploring Lake Lure, which is beautiful.

I would definitely recommend this home. We will return again.

Beautiful property with amazing views

We celebrated a 40th together with old friends. Great home to relax wth friends. Plenty of space and an awesome deck to enjoy fresh air and great memories. From breakfast on the deck to afternoon chats and wine around the gas firepit - perfect from start to finish. Matt was extremely organized and communicated at every step. Our only wish was that we had a few more nights!! Thank you for sharing your home. We loved it!

The "Overlook at Lake Lure" is a beautiful and perfect cabin for a North Carolina mountain retreat!! The gorgeous mountain view from main level, magnificent and forever mesmerizing , due to light and cloud changes.

We had a wonderful family reunion , coming from several parts of the country. Cabin was just the right size for our party, was cozy and well appointed. We enjoyed seeing several wild turkey families on the grounds on a daily basis. Felt surrounded by beautiful nature!!

Great Cabin, Beautiful Views, Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at The Overlook was great! This cabin is very beautiful, very spacious and clean. The mountain views from the deck were absolutely gorgeous! There are glass doors all around the dining area and the great room so were able to enjoy the same beautiful views while inside the house too. The 3 floor layout was perfect for our group giving all of us the privacy we needed. There is plenty of very comfortable seating (the couch is the great room was amazing) inside and and outside. We spent many nights star gazing and listening to music on the deck. The game room was a nice bonus. Beautiful, official size pool table (with plenty of pool sticks for all of us) which also converted to a ping pong table. We had a lot fun with both. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking and the gas grill worked perfectly. In fact, everything was in great working order. We've rented many vacation homes over the years and this is often not the case. The owners were quickly responsive to all our emails and even emailed us during our stay to make sure everything was going well (which it was!). We had a lot of fun at the resort too. Swimming, tennis, golf, lunch and drinks at the club house and we even rented a pontoon boat for a day. There is so much to do at Rumbling Bald! Outside of the resort, we went white water kayaking and zip lining which were really very exciting and fun! We look forward to returning to Lake Lure and hope to stay at the Overlook again!

Great Cabin Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend staying at the Overlook in Lake Lure. My family stayed there in July 2017 and had a great time. The cabin was everything we expected. It was clean when we arrived and had everything we needed. Plenty of space. Plus, the view is fantastic! The Owners were very responsive and overall it was a great experience. Cabin came with passes to Rumbling Bald Resort which we visited several times and made for a great summer trip. We would definitely stay there again!

Lake Lure, North Carolina was listed by National Geographic as one of the top 10 most beautiful man-made lakes in the world. In fact, this scenic area provided the stage for the films "Dirty Dancing" and "The Last of the Mohicans."

The Overlook at Lake Lure is the perfect vacation destination for any season since it is located in the isothermal belt of North Carolina, nestled between the rolling Piedmont hills and the Blue Ridge Mountains, an area known for warmer winters and cooler summers.

Included in your stay at The Overlook of Lake Lure are membership privileges and use of many facilities at the Rumbling Bald Resort - golfing, swimming, spa and wellness center, tennis/pickelball/basketball courts, lake and beach access, and so much more. To learn more about the amazing Rumbling Bald Resort amenities, please visit www.rumblingbald.com.

Swimming beaches and marinas can be found along Lake Lure's 27 miles of shoreline.

Climb Chimney Rock Mountain just a short drive through the town of Lake Lure.

Zip Lines, Horseback riding, and some of the best motorcycle roads and hiking trails in the region surround our cabin. For example, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Deals Gap at the Tail of the Dragon and the Cherohala Skyway are all within 1-3 hours ride from the cabin.

While Lake Lure seems far away from the bustle of the city, it is just 40 minutes from the services, shopping, entertainment and art scene of Asheville - a beautiful town known for "keeping it weird." Lots of shopping, restaurants and activities. Not to mention the Biltmore Estates.

There are also several ski resorts around the Lake Lure Area for your snow skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing enjoyment during the winter months.

There are many small towns in the Lake Lure Area to explore, shop, and dine.
