About Matt & 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 & Katie purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Matt & 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.

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!

Breathtaking views and fun for the entire family!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were superb and worked well for our family. We spent our evenings on the deck enjoying the cool breeze and beautiful mountain view. Our days were spent enjoying Rumbling Bald Resort which had enough activities to entertain our entire family of 11. I have to mention how wonderful Matt was to follow up on one problem we had at the beginning of our visit due to the visitors before us. He stayed on it until it was solved. Thank you, Matt!

Awwwwwwww!!!

  • 5 of 5

Location was perfect. Didn't hear a car for 3 days but close to so many fun things to do and explore. High end finishes,state of the art security, comfortable high end furniture and so much space. Relaxing on the couch, looking at the gas fireplace that was so realistic and quiet and the valley and mountain. Each hour the view changed. I was awakened by the call of a young Wipperwill. After my initial annoyance I went outside to the nicely landscaped yard to let Miss Grace, my 80 lb lab, have a run and a flock of turkeys were down one of the paths. Mark, the owner was such a wonderful host. He made all the instuctions, blonde proof lol. I have stayed with other vrbo owners and have never been disappointed but Mark went above and beyond. I came home refreshed, renewed and determined to visit this awesome cabin agin.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the “Awwwwwwwwesome” review and recommendation! The Overlook at Lake Lure is indeed the perfect location for any mountain/lake resort getaway.

While our cabin is nestled on 4.1 acres of a secluded 100-acre private gated community, all the comforts of home and vacation enjoyment are within short driving distances – from accessing Rumbling Bald Resort membership privileges to hiking at Chimney Rock to exploring Asheville to discovering the historic Biltmore Estate to enjoying the Blue Ridge Mountains and Parkway to participating in the countless adventures opportunities throughout the Lake Lure Area to so much more. And, thank you for commenting on the fact that we “went above and beyond” to make our luxurious, spacious, secure, comfortable cabin your home. We take great pride in making ourselves available to our guests 24/7 … even Eastern Whip-poor-wills, Wild Turkeys, and Labrador Retrievers feel at home on our beautiful mountain getaway estate.

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