Convenient to everything...but a million miles away. This 3 bedroom, 2 bath log home is located on beautiful Gateway Mountain near Black Mountain and Lake Lure.

Enjoy beautiful layered mountain views from the deck, toast marshmallows in the outdoor fire pit, cook--or don't cook--in a modern kitchen, curl up on a comfy sofa and enjoy a crackling fire.

Surround yourself with natural stone and beautiful woodwork, fresh air and a night sky full of stars. This property is located on 5+ acres, is gated and very private. A true getaway.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying here for a week in mid-August. The owner is very helpful, friendly, and easy to work with, and the home is comfortable and very clean. It was easy to get to, although we did have trouble getting up the very steep driveway in our 15-passenger van the first night due to rain making it slick. We'd go back there in a heartbeat, and I'd definitely recommend it to family and friends. We had 8 people sleeping there with plenty of room to spare.

We regret never being brave enough to try navigating the other areas of the mountain, as we were told the falls are absolutely beautiful, but we were able to visit other falls in the area such as Linville Falls and Chimney Rock's falls. We also made a trip to Boone to see the outdoor drama "Horn in the West" which was great; even better was the dinner you can opt to purchase before the play starts - I'm still drooling over those homemade mashed potatoes! Our day at Chimney Rock ended with an excellent dinner at Larkin's on the Lake, just east of Lake Lure - their fall-off-the-bone ribs were superb. Probably our best surprise, though, was the little nearby town of Black Mountain. We stopped just to take some photos by the giant rocking chairs, and decided to walk around the basic-looking downtown area. Little did we know that there would be surprising little turns, alleys, side streets all full of charming shops, local artisans, and friendly locals full of tips. We absolutely loved it there. I'd personally pass on the My Father's Pizza restaurant that is apparently pretty poplular; the pizza and lasagna were both pretty uninspired.

Mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had such a great, relaxing time at this house! It is a lovely, clean, well-furnished and well-equipped cabin! We were very comfortable, and it was just perfect for a little retreat! We were delighted to be able to bring our golden retriever -- who also had a great time! Lots of nice long walks! We all loved it! We love the layout of the house. It would be a perfect place to take our grown kids -- and their kids. We would highly recommend this house to anyone wanting to "get away from it all" and enjoy some time to relax and hike.

NYE Getaway

We vacationed here over the NYE holidays. The cabin was perfect, warm and inviting, with a very pretty view. It is tucked away on Gateway Mountain giving you peace and quiet and a sense of serenity but with Asheville just 45 min away.

This cabin was fabulous, the view was awesome and the privacy was great. My dad, husband, and brother in law were working in the Old Fort area, for 2 weeks. So our families went up to visit them for the weekend. It was a very relaxing environment. The fire pit was great a night. Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your cabin.

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a wonderful Labor Day Weekend at this mountain retreat. The house was spotless and comfortable...it had everything we needed...and the views were amazing! The homeowners were so nice and responsive. Our young sons enjoyed seeing wildlife, making smores by the firepit, and visiting the nearby lake and waterfall. We spent a day in the town of Black Mountain where we enjoyed great food, artwork, music, beer from the local brewery, and very friendly people! It was a relaxing getaway, and we would highly recommend it!
