About Matt and Katie
Our family currently lives in Ohio but our hearts are in North Carolina. We just love Western North Carolina and the Lake Lure Area in particular.
Matt and Katie purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Matt and Katie chose Lake Lure
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.

Perfect place to call home base
Traveled to the area from Canada with 5 Adult's for 10 days of cycling in the Lake Lure/Asheville region, the house was absolutely everything we hoped for... Quiet, private and more than spacious enough for our crew. lots of great amenities in the house...We plan on returning and wouldn't need to look elsewhere.. The communication between property owners and myself was perfect and as a property owner myself I know everything thats involved...
Thanks for a great spot to call our own for the week...

Everything was awesome. One (minor) bummer about Rumbling Bald Resort.
-House was amazing! Well equipped and clean. Exactly what we were looking for.
-Owners were awesome. Incredibly accommodating. Communication was superb.
Only negative (and kind of my fault) - was disappointed by our trip to the resort. Did not realize we needed to pay for everything. Mini golf was five bucks a person, renting towels were 2 dollars each??? Hot tub was broken and indoor pool was small and crowded. Guess I could have done better homework on the fees, but still kind of a bummer. Just writing this so future guests know to be prepared for that.
I could not have asked for a better experience from owners. We had a fantastic time! Thanks again!

Amazing House - Perfect for our getaway
Our group of 8 adults and 2 infants had a phenomenal weekend at "The Overlook." The home had the perfect amount of space for us; the big open space on the main floor is a great place to gather and spend time. We also made great use of the ping pong table downstairs. Everything was in great shape; communication was superb. Thanks!

The perfect mountain getaway!
The cabin met and exceeded our expectations. My kids and grandkids all loved the amazing views and enjoyed the amenities as well. The resort had a wonderful pizza place and heated swimming pool and hot tub.
Matt and Katie were very responsive in all correspondence and the property was very well maintained.
We climbed Chimney Rock, found a snow tubing park nearby and spent our evenings relaxing by the fireplace in the evenings while the game room got plenty of use from the kids playing ping pong, cards, and watching movies. This cabin has everything needed to entertain everyone in our family!
The cabin was very comfortable, clean, and homey. We all slept so good at night as the beds were warm and comfortable.
We would definitely recommend this cabin for all ages, and will be back for a summer vacation next time, as there is so much to do around the lake and outdoor activities! Great memories were created at this cabin!

A Christmas in the mountains vacation in a awesome cabin was what we were looking for & this was it!
This mountain home didn't disappoint! The view was from the back was spectacular. The location is perfect. The home is inviting and cozy. We are a family of six and always wanted to spend a Christmas in the mountains and this place rocked it for us. We were there a full week and didn't want to leave. Chimney Rock village is a great little town to spend some time. We will back some summer so we can enjoy the cabin and the surrounding places when the temps are warmer! This home is an awesome place!

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. In addition to your stay at our luxurious mountain retreat, you will enjoy our complimentary membership benefits at the Rumbling Bald Resort of Lake Lure - additional fees are required for some resort amenities. Take full advantage of our resort membership privileges during your stay including, but not limited to access to a spa and salon; two world-class courses for incredible scenery and championship design; two splendid lakes (Lake Lure and Bald Mountain Lake); lake cruises; white sand beaches; a lazy river, two outdoor pools, and an indoor pool; a hot tub/whirlpool, dry sauna, and steam room; pontoon boats, kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, stand up paddle (SUP) boards; fitness equipment and classes; bike rentals; hiking trails; fishing; tennis, pickleball, and basketball; an 18-hole miniature golf course; wine tours; and fine dining.

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 may seem far away from the hustle and 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.
