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 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.

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.

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!

Amazing House - Perfect for our getaway

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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.

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 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.

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.
