About the Property

Spectacular Views! 5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathroom Mountain Top Lodge, Family Friendly

Secluded but very convenient, this lodge is surrounded by the Pisgah National Forest! MountainViews Lodge is 4450 sq. ft. and is located in a gated community at 3200 feet (which makes for the spectacular views) with a 2 lane paved gentle incline access road. Only minutes from the main 5 lane road that provides easy and direct access to the Asheville, Hendersonville, and Brevard areas! This warm and inviting lodge is surrounded by virgin forest and is just far enough away from the hustle and bustle to provide maximum relaxation, yet close enough to 3 different towns for you to enjoy all types of activities - everything from multiple waterfalls, hiking, fishing, golfing, scenic drives, restaurants, and shopping to many more activities.

This is a custom built 4450 sq. ft. two story lodge with an open floor plan. There is only one small step for entry on either level so this house is great for someone that may have some mobility limitations. There is a separate entrance to the lower level of the house for privacy or inside stairs to go from one level to another. Plenty of space to gather together with your group or lots of private spaces to get away and enjoy as well. High speed wireless internet is provided throughout lodge. Self sustaining whole house generator, central air. 2 car garage - parking for 4 cars total (no roadside parking or motorcycles allowed). There is a grocery nearby where other vehicles could be parked, if need be. The lodge is immaculately clean, clean, clean!

Enjoy the cool gentle breezes in the summer. The elevation of the lodge makes the air about 5 degrees cooler than in the towns during summertime. In fact, there really is no need for air conditioning most of the year. Imagine yourself having a busy day full of fun & activities but knowing you are coming back to relax in the serenity of the lodge.

The views are ever changing. Some mornings you are living above the clouds; sometimes the fog is wisping through the valley below; other times, you can see for miles. You may also see a small plane or helicopter flying through the valley and realize that they are at the same altitude that you are. It's like experiencing a piece of heaven.

HOUSE CONFIGURATION:

The Great Room is open with cathedral ceiling and jaw dropping views! Large seating area, stone gas fireplace with remote to warm winter guests, 48” HDTV Smart TV.

The Dining Room is open with the Great Room and Kitchen. Large table with seating for 10.

TWO fully equipped kitchens – one on each level! Upper level kitchen includes stainless steel appliances and granite countertop. This kitchen is next to open dining room/ great room with a large table for group meals. The kitchen on the lower level is open to the game room for easy access to fix a snack while enjoying the pool table and air hockey.

Large 80 ft. long Deck - The deck runs the full length of the back of the house - Perfect for drinking your morning coffee while watching the spectacular sunrises over the mountains! Sit on the deck in the rockers and use the Weber Gas Grill to fix lunch/ supper on the deck. The deck can be accessed from the Sunroom or the Serenity Bedroom on main floor.

Cozy Sunroom - Windows/ sliding door all along 2 walls to enjoy the views from this room! This is a great get away room - perfect for enjoying the quiet to read a book or just to hang out. The sliding door opens on to the large back deck. Seating area, 48” HDTV Smart TV.

Game Room – lower level. Includes Brunswick pool table, 8 ft air hockey, commercial Nordic Track treadmill, folding ping pong table and HDTV. Sliding glass door from the game room leads out to the 7 seat Hot Tub. Sip a glass of wine while relaxing in the Hot Tub after a busy day of sightseeing and shopping and enjoy the mountain night time lights. (The night lights across the valley and mountains are just about as pretty as the daytime views!)

Serenity Bedroom: Upper level Master Suite - King Bed. French doors open to the back deck. This Master Suite has a gorgeous private Full Bath (#1) - Glass & Tile Shower, plus a separate Jetted Tub!

Oriental Bedroom: Lower level King Bed – attached to Full Bath (#2)

Flower Garden Bedroom: Lower level Queen Sleigh Bed – access to Full Bath (#2)

Woodland Bedroom: Upper level - Beautiful Queen Bed – Full Bath (#3)

Patriotic Bedroom: Upper level - 2 Twin Beds (can be made into King Bed, if you prefer) – Full Bath (#3)

A portable pack n play and high chair are also available upon request.

All full baths have glass shower doors. A washer and dryer are provided in a separate laundry room on the upper level.

Enjoy the views, nature and wildlife, while relaxing from the comfort and luxury of our lodge. You will not forget the spectacular and breathtaking views that you will enjoy. Don’t forget to bring your camera because this lodge is definitely made to make memories that you will want to take home with you.

Come meet Harvey, the resident white squirrel! The kids, even big kids (adults), will enjoy viewing and even putting feed out for the gentle wildlife that are right outside the lodge's door! These furry residents include many deer, turkeys, and several white squirrels! (Yes, white squirrels! The Brevard area is known for having white squirrels around the area.) The deer and turkey corn and almonds for the squirrels for feeding the animals is included with the lodge rental.

This lodge is family oriented; NOT a party house rental. This lodge rental is for a peaceful, serene, relaxing vacation in an upscale setting with convenient access. We strive for your stay at MountainViews Lodge to be as worry-free as possible. If you have questions about anything, we are available! You also have access to 24/7 maintenance.

All lodge stays are provided with a welcoming basket which include a bottle of Biltmore wine. Towels, linens, kitchenware and all basic items for your stay are provided.

We are looking forward to you experiencing MountainViews Lodge!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We visited the Asheville area for 25 years as vacationers like yourselves. Finally, we couldn't stand being away from this magnificent area even for a short while so we moved here permanently about 12 years ago and have never regretted it. So much to do and see! We want to share this wonderful area with you and your family. Caution: Most people fall in love with the mountains and have a very hard time leaving!

Why the Owner Chose Mills River, NC, USA:
This property is a rare combination of many things. We searched for a long time before finding this property. It has the most amazing year round views, quiet, secluded, gated community yet is only minutes from the main 5 lane road that gives easy access to Asheville, Hendersonville, and Brevard. We had this home built in 2005 to our specifications. Every window in this house has a great view! You literally feel like you are experiencing a piece of heaven because many days you are living above the clouds! We guarantee you will fall in love with the beauty of this area!

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
This property is unique as it actually sets in the Pisgah National Forest, has some of the best views in the area, and is so centrally located to all of the area's activities. Experience the wildlife around the lodge - visitors can leave the feed out for the gentle wildlife and watch them come close to the lodge.
