About the Property

Time doesn't pass here; it just is.

Soaring Wood is a magical mountain cabin that will renew your spirit and restore your soul. The tranquil breeze, the high mountain views and lush forest will bring you together with nature.

The 1900 sq. ft. cabin is situated at an elevation of 3400 feet with views of Grandfather Mountain, Mount Mitchell and the Blue Ridge Parkway. You can enjoy your view in the 7-person hot tub or while grilling on the roomy deck.

The view from Soaring Wood is remote but the location is not. You are only minutes away from Black Mountain, the Biltmore House, Chimney Rock, and Lake Lure. Even with the close proximity to these attractions, it might be difficult to draw you out of Soaring Wood. You will find yourself engulfed in the warm glow of golden pine throughout the house. The main floor is a spacious and open design. The living area is relaxing and easy with a chess and backgammon table, sleeper sofa and a 42 inch flat screen HDTV with Bose sound. The stone gas fireplace adds to the ambiance as the firelight enchants the cabin. The expansive, fully equipped kitchen with knotty sassafras cabinets will bring out your inner gourmet. The dining table converts to a card table for evenings of fun and games. On the lower level is a spacious, elegant king bedroom for a romantic retreat. In the master bath is a beautiful pebble floor and soaker tub. The game room features a pool table and a 60 inch 4K Ultra HDTV with two recliners to enjoy your favorite teams or programs. Bring your very own tunes to play on the Klipsch Bluetooth sound system.

Soaring Wood is an intimate, romantic cabin, but will sleep 4 comfortably. The cabin is luxurious and the view is spectacular. Slow down and take time to relax and replenish your soul. Time doesn't pass here; it just is.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Both of us grew up in rural Northern Kentucky, near the Cincinnati area. We went to the same schools and became childhood sweethearts. After college, we married and began our careers in Cincinnati. We often vacationed in the mountains and had dreams of someday living in the Blue Ridge. As fortune would have it, during the early 90's we lost our jobs and our home and had to re-educate ourselves for another career. This was a blessing in disguise because we were able to find employment in the Asheville area soon afterward. We were able to find an inexpensive home near Black Mountain and hoped to someday remodel it.

Why the Owner Chose Black Mountain, NC, USA:
Soaring Wood, as we have come to call it, was originally built as an inexpensive vacation home. It had no heat and no air conditioning. The basement was completely unfinished. Actually, the basement was full of wet leaves, dirt and chipmonks when we bought it. But we LOVED THE VIEW, and we LOVED THE LOCATION! We cleaned it up and lived here for several happy and content years until one day we decided to buy another house just down the road. We did this because we wanted to completely remodel Soaring Wood, which is hard to do while living in it. Everything has been remodeled. Every thing. We added a gas fireplace, relocated all the walls, windows and doors, added the front porch, and finished the basement. We plan on living here again someday. This is and always will be where we belong.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
To us, this is our little piece of heaven. In the Summertime, it is at least 5 or more degrees cooler than the town of Black Mountain, and at least 10 degrees cooler than South Carolina and Eastern North Carolina. There is always a cool, shady breeze. And in the Wintertime, we have snow when the town of Black Mountain doesn't due to the elevation. During rainy times, clouds will settle on the house, making for a cozy hideaway. If you were to open the windows during the foggy times, the clouds will literally float right through the living room. We've added a hot tub which is absolutely awesome in the cooler weather. And yet, during the Summer months when the sun in beating down, the hot tub becomes a refreshing pool when set to a lower temp. We remodeled this house to be what we always wanted to be, which is a cozy, romantic, mountain retreat.
