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.

2,800 two story deck, nestled in a gated mountain preserve.

Close to downtown Black Mountain, Asheville, Lake Lure, Chimney Rock and other small mountain towns and recreation areas, your mountain hideaway is easily accessible with fully paved roads. No steep roads, no severe mountain top winds. The approach to the Lodge is serene with only an occasional glimpse of deer, or turkey.

There is plenty of ample parking for your family & friends in the large oval area in front of the Lodge. The home has a large covered front porch with a swinging cedar bench, and rocking chairs.

The wheel-chair friendly main level features a large Master with its own electronic gas fireplace. French doors lead to an outdoor covered living area on the deck with an outdoor, gas assisted, wood burning fireplace. The king-size master bed features a Sleep Number mattress.

There is a large ensuite bath with Jacuzzi tub, double sinks & a large, custom 6 foot rain head shower with seat, heated slate floors & large walk-in closet. A second bedroom is next to the Master which has a pop-up trundle & its own customized bathroom and plenty of toys in the closet for children.

There is a large fully stocked gourmet kitchen with top of the line appliances, granite counter tops, & high end cabinetry. The vaulted great room has a gas assisted wood burning fireplace & is decorated in a manner both rustic & luxurious. The dining area easily seats 8 with an additional 4 seats at the counter. Additional folding tables and chairs are provided. The home has a large laundry & hobby area. There is a full washer/dryer & plenty of counter space, cabinets & a built in desk.

The bar area has two French doors that exit out to an additional level of decking with several lounging areas & a hammock tucked away in a corner. Opposite the adult play area is a childrens game room with a hobby table, games & a full Wii Set-up. The Lodges media room, with 165 inches of high definition video & heart thumping a 7.1 Theater Sound System, may become your favorite room of all of your favorite rooms.Two additional bedrooms are separated by a common bath. The bath has multiple sinks & a Jacuzzi shower tub that will be perfect for guests & family to relax after a hard day of adventure. The 3rd bedroom is the bunk room.

About Susan Hunnicutt

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

Why Susan Hunnicutt chose Black Mountain

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.



Sincerely,

Becky

Exceeded expectations

We all had a wonderful time. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep, and the house is very charming and well appointed. The bottle of wine for our arrival was a very nice touch. The deck was so nice to hang out on as well since there was enough seating for everyone. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a mountain getaway.

Beauty and Grandeur

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing home in a peaceful and serene setting. The house is undersold by the photographs, there is no detail missed by the owners. From the linens to the dishware and cutlery, even champagne flutes..... We didn't want for a thing. The house has a great family layout. Perfect all around. We had a wonderful stay. Thank you for sharing your home.

Beautiful Homebase for Mountain Adventure

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this beautiful mountain home with our parents for five days while showing them the beauty of the Asheville area and mountains. It was so inviting and comfortable and the owners have gone out of their way to make everything perfect for guests. Having the master bedroom on the main floor made it easy for my older parents to get around and we all really enjoyed using the home theatre. It was just like being at the movies! The mild November weather allowed us to take advantage of the wonderful deep covered deck each morning to enjoy our coffee and savor the valley view. The cabin is within easy reach of Black Mountain, Asheville and the surrounding areas but is also very private and feels like a real escape to the mountains...it was the best of both worlds.
We would definitely recommend it without reservation. It would be especially nice for large families or groups as it is very roomy, although we enjoyed it with just 4 of us as well.

Our family had a wonderful time. The home was even nicer than our expectations based on the description. Frank and Susan were very responsive to the few questions we had. We would recommend this home, especially if you want to enjoy a relaxing time in the mountains.

Great home for guests of all ages

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our too brief stay at HunniHome over Labor Day weekend. Everything was as good or better than described. The kids were never bored thanks to the game room and theater. Plus, we all enjoyed the hike to the waterfall. Did not see any bears but did encounter many wild turkeys. Would love to stay even longer the next time to really explore the area.
