MOUNTAIN RETREAT

Old Fort House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

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.

Located on Gateway Mountain, amenities include a private lake for swimming, a trout pond, hiking trails and a waterfall park.

Head into Asheville for great restaurants, shopping and entertainment. Lake Lure is nearby for big lake swimming and boating. Explore quirky shops and restaurants in Black Mountain. Or never step foot off the mountain. Your vacation. Your choice.

Mountain getaway

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review! Glad you and your Golden had beautiful walks and a fun time. Come back, anytime!

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

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!
