The Best in Mountain Living and relaxation... Welcomes you in your Log Lodge hideaway, nestled in mountains of North Carolina near Black Mountain and Asheville …enjoy a quiet evening sitting in the outdoor living area on the main floor deck that overlooks a fully treed deep mountain hollow. Warm yourself from the evening chill wrapped in a blanket, comforted by the flickering light from the outdoor fireplace. The sound of the woodlands at twilight is enhanced by the babbling creek that runs at the bottom of the property. The only houses visible are high on a distant peak. You are at peace.
You wake in the morning, alive and refreshed. You serve yourself a steaming hot cup of Joe in the gourmet kitchen. You casually walk outside on the deck & settle in the quaint outdoor eating area. Here you smile & breathe in the fresh air as you listen to the creek & watch the humming birds feed. You’ll find an unusual sense of energy in this 4,500 plus square foot, three story mountain log Lodge.

We're a husband and wife Team, one who works in Banking, the other who consults in Banking. The mountains and the outdoors have always been an important part of our lives. In year's past, we've actively hiked, mountain biked, and enjoyed white water. The mountains have always called to us, and we've always sought to share what we love. Now with 4 kids (one still at home) and 6 grandchildren, the importance of combining family and adventure is important to us. We built this home to eventually retire to, so we built it high end and handicap friendly.
Susan Hunnicutt purchased this cabin in 2008
Being a graduate of Appalachian State University and spending a lot of years skiing and enjoying the outdoors, the male part of the team was immediately drawn to the Boone Blowing Rock area. The female part of the team saw nothing but two small towns with a limited amount to do and to experience. To her, the Asheville area presented a wealth of different experiences. In year's past, the couple had spent many hours hiking, and rafting in and around the Asheville. The memories of the many small mountain towns, the festivals, and recreational activities soon drove the decision in the right direction. Upon exiting the car after viewing many lots in and around the area, the sound of the babbling creek at the back of the lot is what made the decision. It was a great decision.
Serenity and peace. Accessibility and 'self-contained' adventure. The Preserve is a gated acreage home site which borders the Pisgah National Forest. There are hiking trails, streams, and water falls in the preserve. There is an abundance of nature. We have seen bears, turkeys, rabbits, deer, raccoons and skunks. This is all possible because there is NO HUNTING! You are just minutes from Black Mountain, Asheville, Hendersonville, Lake Lure and Chimney Rock. There are a large number of crafts show and 'events' happening all the time.
Thanks for asking Susan, we made it home fine. We sincerely enjoyed our week in your beautiful home. We ended up bringing my 76 year old mother instead of my daughter and her family, as they decided to move to Portland. My mother had never seen anything so beautiful and thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the deck reading all day. You had a book there that she picked up on Sunday and didn’t put down till she finished it late Monday. It rained all day on the first day so we didn’t get out, but there was so much in the home to do (or not to do, which was sooo relaxing). My 30 year old son found a jigsaw puzzle and started working it Sunday afternoon and had it finished (with minimal help from the rest of us) by Tuesday night (all 1000 pieces ARE there too).
Thank you again for letting us use your home for the week. There was no detail overlooked and my 18 month old granddaughter really enjoyed all the things to play with in the little girls room. You may want to add a photo of that room to the listing as it was totally unexpected, but what a nice surprise.
