Overview

Old Fort Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

This new log cabin is a great place to relax and enjoy nature at its finest. Nestled away on a private mountain lot, yet conveniently located to many area attractions.

The cabin is a 2 bedroom each having its own bathroom with a loft for additional sleeping or TV watching. There is a queen bed in each bedroom. The loft has a pull out sleeper sofa and a pull out sleeper chair. Wood floors, tile, and carpeting add to its natural wood beauty. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and silestone countertops with a breakfast bar. The gas burning fireplace adds to the already comfortable and cozy atmosphere in the large open living area. The 4 person Hot Tub is a great way to unwind and enjoy the view from the back deck.

Relax and enjoy the mountain views from the wrap around deck or hike to nearby Lake George for fishing, swimming, and picnicking.

Privacy is guaranteed as the cabin sits on almost 3 acres in gated Gateway Mountain surrounded by mountain laurel and a lush hardwood forest. A trout pond and a waterfalls complete with picnic area welcomes guests year round.

Close to The Biltmore Estate, Lake Lure, Chimney Rock Park, Historic Black Mountain, Mt. Mitchell State Park, Lake James, Linville Caverns, and Maggie Valley. You can be as busy as you want or as laid back as you need! Visit the Gateway Mountain website for more information and pictures.

About Sharon

My husband and I grew up near the mountains in Pennsylvania and spent our childhoods hiking, fishing, and camping. When we vacationed in Gateway Mountain we loved the natural surroundings and breathtaking views that were all around us. We decided to purchase this vacation home so that we could revisit the beauty and tranquility of the mountains whenever possible without the hassle of hotels or condominiums.

Sharon purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Sharon chose Old Fort

Gateway Mountain is our quiet, relaxing home away from home. The developers kept the natural beauty of the mountains while providing Gateway residents and visitors with the security of a gated community. Our home is within a short drive to beautiful Asheville, NC which provides plenty of year round activities for everyone in our family.

What makes this cabin unique

Gateway Mountain has many areas to hike, fish, swim, nature watch, and explore. It is also conveniently located so that in a short drive you can get to Lake Lure, Chimney Rock Park, Asheville, Black Mountain, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Linville Caverns, Granfather Mountain, Little Switzerland, Catawba Falls,and other areas which offer a variety of year round activities.

Great times, great house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the aesthetic of this mountain side home. The views were lovely and we really enjoyed the wrap around porch and hot tub. It was a perfect place for our girls getaway! The only downside of this property were the thin walls. We would definitely recommended this house to others!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, comfortable, and relaxing. This is a great get-away if you truly want to escape. The kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, oven, microwave, coffeemaker... you could bring food and have a "staycation" with gorgeous views. The two bedrooms are roomy and each have a full bath. We were very satisfied. We spent the day in Black Mountain. Beautiful shops, delicious food, and highly recommended.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with a wrap around porch. When you go through the gate the roads can be a tad bit steep and slightly narrow but totally worth it. I went with my fiancé and two good friends and we had a blast. The waterfall is absolutely beautiful and I highly recommend this house!

We loved our time here! The cabin itself was beautiful, the views of the mountain from all angles was incredible, and it had pretty much everything you would need in terms of linens, kitchen supplies, etc. It's a great place to unplug from the world and get away. Downtown Asheville is only about an hour away and there are plenty of beautiful hikes within 40 minutes (highly recommend Graybeard Mountain if you're outdoorsy). I'm keeping this place in mind for future trips.

Great cabin. Tough location.

  • 4 of 5

Let me start with that the cabin is just beautiful! It is great for a small family or 1-2 couples. The location might be an issue depending on what you are planning to do. The gated community is very easy to find however, once you enter the gate it gets very tricky (easier to get in than out).*It would be so helpful if the community had 'to gate' signs at each of the turns* If you are planning to go to Asheville everyday this might be a problem as it takes 45+ minutes and its very easy to get lost getting out (we did twice with the maps). I recommend stopping at the grocery store before you get there because traveling the roads at night requires a lot of attention. Also the only staple item there is toilet paper and sugar. No paper towels, salt & pepper, etc. We were very glad we took my husbands 4x4 truck because otherwise we would not have made it in my CRV. The roads were wet and very slick. I say 4x4 for wet, ice, and snowy roads. Great stay if you just want to hang in a cabin for a few days!

Nice, but call before you go!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was nice and peaceful. We were not able to get up the driveway despite multiple attempts, making loading and unloading quite difficult. It is at a fairly steep incline and you DO need 4 wheel drive. We didn't find out the fireplace was not working until AFTER we arrived. Extremely disappointed that we were not notified ahead of time as this was one of the amenities that was an absolute must for us. I understand things break, but in the event that you can not fulfill one of the amenities at your property, you should call.
