The home can accommodate 10 adults comfortably in beds. There is also a pull out sofa in bedroom #4 that can accommodate one or two kids. Much of the house cabin decor was acquired locally in Black Mountain and Asheville.

The property is very quiet, peaceful and private and sits on 2 acres with breathtaking views all around. The deck wraps around with plenty of seating and relaxing in the hammock. swing chairs and rocking chairs. There is a large back deck for entertaining with a new hot tub, picnic bench, BBQ, table and chairs and loungers for relaxing and enjoying the long range mountain views and listening to the sounds of nature.

The game room is where the fun is! You will love entertaining and watching the big game here with a pub style wet bar featuring a pool table, ping-pong, 2 arcade games, TV and shuffleboard. For nature lovers, there is hiking, waterfalls and abundant wildlife on the Preserve.

Enjoy a really unique getaway. You will feel away from it all yet you will be only 15 minutes (8 miles) to Black Mountain and 30 minutes (23 miles) to Asheville, NC.

Why the Owner Chose Black Mountain: After living in South Florida for 20 years, we searched for an escape up in the mountains. We built this custom log home in 2007 and vacationed in it for 2 years. We enjoyed this incredible lifestyle so much that we decided in to move to Asheville in the summer of 2009. We briefly lived at the lodge and really enjoyed it. We have since opened a medical office in Asheville and need to be close to the practice as well as the kid's school. That is the reason we have now decided to offer this incredible property for others to enjoy. We know you will love this property and the breathtaking mountains as much as we do!

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge: Bordering a vast forest preserve, Catawba Falls presents gated acreage homesites with stunning views of the Pisgah National Forest. You'll feel a thousand miles away in your mountainside dream vacation home, yet you'll be minutes from the culture and conveniences of Asheville and Black Mountain. There are numerous hiking trails, streams and rivers, and waterfalls nearby. Wildlife is abundant in the Preserve. The most common animals that you may encounter are deer, wild turkey, rabbits, birds, fox, and black bears. Of course, there is absolutely no hunting in the Preserve.

Guestbook comments from the owner
What a beautiful home you have - thank you for sharing it with our family for the week!! We all had a wonderful time! We have 8 children (ages 8-15). There was something for each of them to do from swings to hot tub, games, arcade, ping pong, pool…the list goes on and on. We had such a great time being together. The property is wonderful and the views are amazing. The home is beautiful and homey. Looking forward to staying again in the future and encouraging others to do the same.

FAMILY MOUNTAIN VACATION

  • 5 of 5
I cherish family time. As a Mom of two grown children, one witn a new baby and the other newly engaged, there were a lot of requests. I web searched for the perfect home for my family vacation. This home had all the amenities I was looking for. It was an ideal location for the plans we had. The girls wanted a spa day and there was one in the area that was the Best, Some of us wanted to go day hiking one day. Trails were nearby and the owner had it clearly written down for us to find. Everyone wanted to go to the Christmas house tour of lights in Asheville.
The grocery store nearby was as nice as they come! The home was clean, well equipped, and comfortable. Game room a plus as was the hot tub! All details to run everything was clearly written for easy use. No complaints! I highly recommend this home for a perfect vacation any season of the year. Thank you Michael for sharing your home with us and for helping us in every way you did! Merry Christmas to All and God Bless:-)

MOUNTAIN VACATION

  • 5 of 5
I booked this vacation for my family. The owner could not have been nicer as I had to reschedule our dates after booking. He was always so helpful. The home is fabulous in every way. It was comfortable, clean, well equipped with everything we needed, beautiful view, and most convienent to Biltmore, Grove Park, hiking trails, and a super nice grocery store. We have rented mountain homes for many years and this was in the top five. One last comment was how helpful it was to have written instructions for everything that may come up. We had one issue with the hot tub but after a phone call to the owner it was resolved immediately. Thanks Michael. I know anyone looking to rent a vacation home would be as pleased our family.

PERFECT FAMILY VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a long weekend at this beautiful home for a family birthday celebration!
From the minute we pulled up we were so impressed with the beauty and quality of this home... Such nice, high- end finishes. It was the perfect size for our group of 11. Everyone was very comfortable.

We enjoyed the game room and all of the outdoor seating options with beautiful views.The new hot tub was a great touch too.

It was a perfect getaway. We were in easy access to great restaurants in Black Mountainand Asheville.

Wonderful trip! We hope we can get back soon.

GREAT HOME FOR A LARGE GROUP!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our family vacation in this well-maintained mountain home! We were a party of 11, spanning three generations with ages from 2-70. Everybody had a great time at the home and the surrounding area.

Regarding the home, it fit everyone quite comfortably in the available space. We rented it especially for the large dining room table that we could all fit around for family dinners and talking. The views from the deck and the roads in the community were gorgeous - million dollar sunrises :-)

The game room was a fun place to spend time! The kids (4 year olds) loooved their kid bedroom & stuffed animals on their beds. The younger child (2) actually slept in his pack n play in the huge closet of the third floor master bedroom - funny, but it worked perfectly! If you have younger children, bring activities/toys for them.

Because we love to cook and spend time in the kitchen/dining room, our 'room for improvement' thoughts include to invest in a larger grill (we grilled fish, which luckily cooks quickly, as we had to do it in three rounds. The grill was too small to attempt chicken & corn, etc., for our group size), a set of pyrex mixing bowls, and some nice serving dishes & serving silverware. We had brought some of our own cookware in the case that the home had Teflon cookware, as most rental homes do; so if you prefer to not cook on scratched Teflon, bring some stainless steel / cast iron from home. There were two medium stainless steel pots in the home.

The downstairs bedrooms are quite charming; only suggestion there might be to offer a spot for personal toiletries in the shared bathroom.

The chairs, swings, and hammock on the deck & below were just so nice & relaxing!

We feel we only scratched the surface of things to do in the area. We loved Chimney Rock, and the entire party did the falls hike. Lake Lure has a fun water park area with splash pad, two water slides, nice beach, and boat rental - you have to pay to enter, but it's worth it. Asheville was so sweet, and we ate at The Laughing Seed twice. Yum! Two of us hiked the upper Catawba Falls trail, which was quite rough - not recommended for kids - but SO gorgeous. Two others hiked the lower falls and enjoyed that very much, too.

Our group saw a young bear on the first day (driving into the preserve), lots of turkey, and a coyote.

All in all, we loved it and would return. Thank you! And thank you for keeping the rate manageable for families!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review and comments. We are happy you and your family had a great week and enjoyed the home as much as we do.

We had an amazing time. The house is spacious, clean, updated, beautifully decorated and has lots of fun things for kids & adults. We especially enjoyed the game room and wrap around porches. Couldn't have asked for a better view. Loved every minute.

AWESOME HOUSE, AWESOME FUN!

  • 5 of 5
We chose this home due to it being reasonably close to Asheville, but we had so many fun things to do, we never did make it into Asheville (Maybe next time!). There are some fun hiking trails in the neighborhood, and close by are many other activities. We chose to do whitewater rafting, horseback riding, and several hikes including Chimney rock (which is very close by), and spent some time by Lake Lure which is beautiful(but busy on the weekend).
The house was perfect for our 9 people. (we could have fit more). The game room was a huge hit, as were the great outdoor porches with views that are indescribable. The location has a lot of wildlife so we were very excited to get some pictures including a mama bear with little cubs!
The house is well stocked with everything one might need. I can't say enough good things about this house. It's just perfect!
