I am from New England and have lived in CT, MA, VT, and NH. I have now lived on the West coast of Florida for many years. After a while of living here, I longed again for the hills. Giving myself the limit of a 10-hr. drive, I found the ideal location in Rutherfordton, NC. It has everything I wanted...mountains, hills, northern plants and flowers, lakes, rivers, parks, antique shops, shopping malls, book stores, historic homes and much much more...It has it all!
I spend many of my waking moments in Florida wishing I were in North Carolina and get there as often as I can.

Scenery, change of seasons, comfortable weather, amenities that the area offers.
Peace and Quiet. Area attractions. Seasonal availability.
View from the loft outside and into the living room. For those who want to bring a dog, the deck and porch are gated.
Everything was perfect. The gate for the dog meant she could stay on the deck with us. The office space on the lower level and WiFi allowed us to do work that needed to be done even while on vacation. The view is spectacular, the area is very quiet and peaceful, and the deer in the morning are welcome guests. So many places and things to do in the vicinity. Thanks for making Overlook so warm and friendly.
My husband & I stayed at Overlook (with our dog) leading up to Christmas and it was just lovely. The cabin is so well kept and comfortable and the Christmas decorations were so charming - they really go all out & decorate the whole cabin. It was a beautiful, quiet, relaxing home base to come back to after the hustle & bustle of visiting family. And I have to say the owner Jim is absolutely fantastic. Whenever I had a question, he was immediately responsive & even called to check that we got into the cabin ok. I feel so comfortable & confident renting from him. We would absolutely stay at Overlook again.
Overlook Cabin was simply wonderful! Loved the cabin, it was so homey and cosy. Felt right at home. Development was very nice, we had lots of fun walking our puppy on the paved roads. We didn't see any deer, but we could hear them moving in the nearby woods. Food and sightseeing were very close and varied . We highly recommend this cabin - it was perfect in every way. Hope to visit again soon!
My fiancee and I stayed at Overlook for a long weekend, to escape with our small dog for some much-needed rest and relaxation. We found the perfect spot for peace and quiet, with beautiful views of the mountains. The home itself is such a perfect "home away from home", with plenty of space on three levels, a spacious yard, and a nice outdoor deck. All the conveniences of comfortable living are there. We even rented DVDs each night to relax in the loft and watch movies. We will definitely come back soon.
If you are looking for a relaxing and quiet vacation from your hectic daily life, this the place to stay. We stayed at Overlook for a long weekend and were very happy when we arrived. The cabin was very clean and comfortable and was our home away from home. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and taking in all that mother nature was offering, beautiful sunrise, sunset; it was very tranquil and we enjoyed the fireplace in the evening. Overlook is central to many activities and a short distance to Hendersonville, Asheville, Black Mountain, Lake Lure (where Dirty Dancing was filmed), the Blue Ridge Parkway and many more interesting sites. If Jim will have us back, we would love to spend a week at Overlook next summer.
I decided that it was time for a much needed vacation and wanted to find a place where I could take my dog with me. A trip to the mountains and cooler weather (I live in Florida) was the perfect choice and Overlook cabin was the perfect place to stay. The cabin is just as the pictures depict and I felt right at home while there. The gated community it is located in is very nice and gave me a sense of security which was important since I was a single female traveling alone. You get the sense that you are isolated from everyone, but there are actually neighbors not too far away which I liked. My dog loved it there, exploring the outdoors around the cabin. My favorite thing to do was sit in the rocking chair on the porch and enjoy the mountain views. There are some great hiking destinations nearby and downtown Asheville is only about an hour away. The owner was very helpful beforehand answering the questions I had. I can't say enough good things about this place. I definitely would like to make the trip back there next year.
My husband & I were traveling for our wedding celebration in Rutherford County and wanted a place where we could relax, prepare for our ceremony and spend time with our best man/maid of honor. Overlook was absolutely perfect for that. The layout of the cabin is fantastic - all 4 of us were able to spend time with each other, get wedding-ready and not feel like we were on top of each other. Overlook met all of our expectations and was exactly as promised/described by the owner, Jim. It's so beautiful and clean & we were so comfortable there. It was a little slice of calm & serenity to come home to after the hustle & bustle of our event. We loved it & hope to return soon. I would absolutely recommend to friends & family.
