Black Mountain Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We really enjoyed our stay. Your home was beautiful. We particularly enjoyed having so many common areas so both the adults and the teens felt like they had space. And, both the husbands love to cook, although rarely get the opportunity to do so. They were thrilled to be able to cook in your wonderful, well stocked kitchen!! All of us enjoyed watching the bears, turkey, deer, and even skunks! Thanks for giving us the opportunity to have a fabulous vacation.



Much appreciated!

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.

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.

WE WERE VERY PLEASED WITH THE AWESOME HOME!

  • 5 of 5
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.

OUTSTANDING VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
Your home is fabulous. Having it stocked with the "basics" and even bottles of wine was special. Our five grandchildren were enamored with everything, and we spent more time just relaxing and experiencing God with family than we did touring the area.

There are two maintenance items you should be aware of. The inside kitchen deck door handle comes off. It's a simple hex key adjustment, but I didn't see any tools to fix it. Second, the floor between the couch and fireplace is ultra-super-slippery. We had a few slips and falls with adults and kids walking in bare feet, shoes, and bedroom slippers. I think it's just worn slick.

Other than THAT, it was fabulous. We had church in the movie theater on Sunday morning, had meals with 11 around your table, and spent more time in the kitchen than any other room. It's a great party house!

Thanks not only for the great home, but also for your thoughtful appointments everywhere we looked, from the shampoo and eye mask in the bathroom to the birthday candles and MIFI in the kitchen.

Blessings,
Ray and Kathy Snyder

Owner's Response: Ray and Kathy,

We are thrilled you loved the place! Thanks also for letting us know about the door and floor. With it being rented so much, we don't always know when there are maintenance items.

Ray, your comments to me on your email..." we did have an incredible visit.  We used to have a 8BR 4500 sf condo in Myrtle Beach, but it never approached even a small measure of the character you've added to Hunnihome.  It's truly a "HOME" and not just a rental", really touched me...because it's not just a rental to us, it's our home!

Come back and visit any time!

Warm regards!

Susan

HUNNIHOME IS GREAT FOR A LARGE FAMILY VACATION.

  • 5 of 5
My family of 11 had a great time staying at HunniHome for our week long vacation. We had a wonderful time enjoying the large porches with all of the rocking chairs, chair swings and the hammock. The kitchen was perfect with so much room for cooking and dinning. The kitchen is stock with all utensils, cookware, canned food, flour, sugar, cookie mixes, pancake mixes, spices, most condiments and much more. You enter on the second floor (the main floor) that leads to the dinning room, kitchen and living room. That floor has the master bedroom/ bathroom and the second bedroom has a twin trundle bed that pops up and you can push the twins together. This room connects to a bathroom with a stand up shower in it that can also be entered from the hall off the dinning and living area. Up the stairs on the third floor is the game room. The kids loved the foosball and air-hockey and it has a sofa bed. From the the Main floor you head down the stairs to find the Media room. The Media room is stocked with movies for all ages. My 18 and 20 year old daughters put 2 twin mattresses together and made it their bedroom. It was perfect for them to be able to watch movies at bedtime. The bunk room was nice with two bunks that had a full on bottom and a twin on top. The other bedroom had a very comfortable King size bed with a nice bathroom with a tub shower. Kind of a Jack and Jill bathroom. We had no problems with the 7 of us sleeping on the 1st floor sharing the large bathroom. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very nice and roomy. Also, on this floor is a large room with 2 game tables where we spent a night playing cards. It has a bar with a refrigerator and coffee pot and a large wall tv. In the midst of these rooms is a kids area with a tv and a wii console with games. So, you can see this home has everything you will want and it is up to date and very nice, comfortable, and roomy. You may also see a bear or two, or four! I recommend you take your vacation here, I know I would like to come back some day! I am glad we picked Hunnihome!! Susan is great also! Very nice and friendly. Thanks Susan for everything!
