Absolutely Perfect Family Lodge!!
Linger Longer Lodge is just what the name implies...you never want to leave! Our family all met at the Lodge in December 2017 for an early family Christmas gathering. We had family from Wilmington, NC, Rome, GA, Atlanta, GA, and Gautier, MS. There were three generations with ages from 18 months to 64 years old. Everyone was thrilled with the location and the lodge. The scenery from the decks was breathtaking! The lodge easily gave all 13 of us plenty of room to be together as well as plenty of room for privacy. Each couple had their own room and bathroom which made for a very comfortable stay. The Lodge was very clean, well stocked with anything you could need to cook, and beautifully furnished...the epitome of a mountain lodge. The natural wood of the structure was beautiful inside and out. We have already booked for next year as we are hoping this will be our 'every year' family Christmas gathering place. Wish you could see how beautiful the stair rails looked adorned with all 13 Christmas stockings and lights. Our family has absolutely nothing negative to say about Linger Longer Lodge...a five star rating from us!
We are pleased and honored to have such a fine review. Many families and groups have stayed at our lodge over the years and enjoyed our property. Thank you all for your many positive verbal and written comments.
Perfect family reunion at Linger Longer Lodge
Our reunion of 18 cousins was the best ever at Linger Longer Lodge! How we loved sitting around the large dining room table and sharing sweet time together on the porches. The house is beautifully decorated, spacious, and well-equipped.. Be prepared for steps from both upper and lower parking lots--not handicapped accessible. Mountain setting is delightful, and house is spacious for a large group. We experienced some issues with air conditioning on main level, but slept comfortably on upper and lower levels. Ford sent detailed guidelines and called several times prior to our arrival to answer questions. We enthusiastically recommend Linger Longer Lodge and hope to return again. Thank you for sharing your lovely Montreat home with our family!
Wonderful, spacious house!
Had a great weekend stay. House is well appointed, lots of wood and very spacious. Good location to many exciting areas and things to do!
DGs wanted to Linger Linger....
What a wonderful weekend we just spent at linger longer! We were a group of 14 sorority sisters in our mid 60s. There was room for all and the best part of all was a bathroom for every bedroom! The kitchen was well-equipped there was everything you needed! We even all fit around the dining room table. the house is perched in the mountains with wonderful views. The beds are comfortable but you have to bring your own linens. Views are astounding the rocking chairs were a special touch, it was delightful sitting on the porch catching up with old friends. Ford was very easy to work with and very thorough in preparing us for our stay. Just know that the parking is a little sketchy as the house does sit on a steep hillside. GPS had a difficult time directing us but with the help of some balloons we guided everyone to the house! We had six cars and we all felt more comfortable parking on the lower levels. Great house, lovely town of Black Mt and very convenient to Ashville and the Biltmore!
Cabin was amazing, VRBO...not so much
I rented Linger Longer Lodge for my high school choir as part of our choir tour. It rained nearly our entire stay, so we spent a lot of time in the cabin, and the kids loved it. Plenty of space to have some quiet time, and some large spaces to get the whole group together for meals, games, or a movie. We had issues with payment through HomeAway, and they were awful to deal with. I spent probably 15-20 hours on the phone trying to pay for the place and we never could get it resolved. I ended up just paying the owner directly. The owner of the house was very kind and enjoyable to work with. He sent me suggestions on things to do in the area, checked in regularly leading up to our stay, and gave very clear instructions on how the house should be left on the day we departed. Overall, great experience, and I would certainly stay here again!
Great property, quiet mountain neighborhood, convenient to Asheville and Black Mountain is charming
Great living spaces and kitchen. Two large porch/balconies and top floor small porch/balcony with Mountain Views. Fast Wi-Fi with reasonable amount of users. Very well stocked. Bring your own linens.
