About steve powell

Steve and Joy Powell believe children are the future and nothing is more important then giving children a solid foundation for life. They strongly feel great memories should be shared. Memory Mountain is full of personal memories experienced by their family over the past 2 decades and continue presently. It is their vision to give others a mystical place to make memories with those they care about. Memory Mountain has the potential to grow great character in your children and grandchildren.

Both Joy and Steve are from large families. Steve is 1 of 7 brothers, his Dad kept trying for a daughter until his mom put a stop to it. Joy has 5 brothers and sisters and is a native to North Carolina (4th generation).

steve powell purchased this lodge in 2001

Why steve powell chose Wolf Laurel

It's easy to get here. There are not miles of windy 2 lane country roads . I-26 intersects with I-95 so if gas tanks allowed - you could get here traffic light free. There are 2 airports Asheville, NC 35 miles or Tri-Cities, TN 50 miles. Both cities have great rates flying Allegiant Air.

Memory Mountain features over 200 acres to enjoy. You will not have to leave the mountain to fish, hike, bird watch, soak in a private hot tub, visit a chapel.

Extras: wi-fi, Directv (over 570 channels - local, movies, sports, Disney), free long distance land lines (cell phones are iffy here therefore land lines are included to ensure safety. Please enjoy unlimited calls out or in. Steve and Joy Powell (owners) live on Memory Mountain to assist all guest with any issue that may occur.

Level building pads here. This lodge is built on stem wall footers. There are no steep drops or stilts like most mountain cabins. The lodges are well planned to allow privacy and safety. There is plenty of driveway parking as well as garage. Traffic is light because of the low home/acreage ratio.

Holidays! You can have it all away from home. Gifts can be mailed to the Powell address or store pick up is available at 2 very close Walmart's (Weaverville, NC or Erwin, TN). There are Christmas tree farms in Mars Hill to cut your own tree.

Weddings. We have a chapel and beautiful mountain back drops 24/7.

Please ask any question... we will find an answer.

A Christian father and son trip...

  • 5 of 5
I spent over a month looking for a place that would be suitable for my son and I. We found it at Wolf Laurel, and did we find it. After speaking with the owner I found out that not only is he a Christian but also has a 200 acre farm with real food. Steve and his wife Joy were absolutely wonderful, with their kindness, love for the outdoors and overall just great people. This is an experience my son will never forget. The cabin was perfect the whole place was a slice of heaven, tranquil, beautiful and best of all quiet!!! We will be coming back every year! Thank you guys for an unforgettable time.

Youth Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This cabin, trip, and experience was absolutely amazing! Steve and his wife, Joy, made our party-of over 18 teenagers- feel welcome, loved, and right at home. We experienced living and interacting with eachother in God's very own back yard. We fished, rode four wheelers, went hiking, made smores, visited the on-site museum and chapel, and so much more. Lobo the "mascot" of the compound was so cool! Not everyday you get to hangout with a wolf. If you're looking to go some place and watch tv all day, this place is not for you. However, if you're looking for a place to have fun, experience nature, get closer to your loved ones, and more-then call now and book to start making memories on Memory Mountains :)

Perfect Wedding Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My fiancé and I came up for an overnight stay to check out Wolf Laurel and to meet Steve and Joy. The drive up was absolutely gorgeous and upon entering Memory Mountain, we were blown away with the simplistic beauty and rustic elegance. Steve and Joy are the sweetest couple and it felt like I was sitting and chatting with my grandparents ;) again. We stayed in the Cherokee Lodge and it was a home away from home, with all the necessities yet the feeling of being in the woods and nature.

As a bride planning my wedding, you couldn't ask for a better support system outside of your family to help you plan your special day. Steve will adopt you as his daughter and will go to bat for you when dealing with your "family" :) He makes the entire process about us and will do everything in his power to accomplish what you need and want.

On a personal level, they have a testimony to tell and if I could have stayed longer I would have loved to continue listening to the stories and how Memory Mountain was built. The chapel is dedicated to his son, it is beautiful and embodies the spirit and life of someone taken too soon from this world.

Memory Mountain, Steve and Joy, are everything I was hoping and dreaming for when planning my big day. I look forward to spending more time with them over the next year and a half and planning my wedding. :)

Owner's Response: What a touching write up. We lost our son Shane 5 years ago to a drunk driver. He was 25 years old and 3 months away from getting married. We have built a Chapel on our 200 acres it is dedicated to the CHILDREN WHO WENT BEFORE US. We now have wedding at the Chapel. I was in banking all my life and now we are giving back to the people who come visit us. We believe in our young people and work hard everyday to make their dreams come true. I believe that this is our Ministry and we are are helping a lot of people.

Very relaxing long weekend!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a peaceful, relaxing weekend here with my sister and brother-in-law. Spent some time at Biltmore in Ashville on Saturday and just relaxed on Sunday. Loved sitting on the porch listening to the water falling into the pond and looking at the view. Saw two deer run in front of the house. Lots of places to walk around outdoors. We enjoyed a fire in the fireplace in the evenings. Beds were very comfortable. Kitchen was very well equipped. It was very easy to find, but feels like you are far away from everything! Will definitely keep this place on our list of places to return.

A piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5
Many people search, yet so little find, and escape from this world. We found that here in Memory Mountain. The cabin and weekend was truly an escape. We were left in awe everywhere we turned. From the mountainous region to the beautiful crafted cabins, chapel, ponds, waterfalls, etc. Our minds were in awe. This place has it all. Steve and Joy were awesome, and so helpful in trying to make our special moment perfect. This place is like a piece of heaven. It's a perfect place to see Gods wonderful creations and we are so thankful for everything they have done to make this place so special and for sharing it with us. It was everything we were looking for and MORE! The best part is....Not only have we found the perfect place for our wedding but we made new friends, lots of memories and a future get away for our family.

Owner's Response: I have a vision for Memory mountain to grow even larger. I want to do work with special Olympics to come here with 50 people. Just a dream but also have our Military returning veterans to come here for recap. Let's expand the place and have a preachers retreat and start a spark. A spark that will blaze worldwide. Let's expand this for any Christian to come her and grow in Christ yet find peace here. It's coming folks and what you pay for rent is building it. Thanks

Cozy cabin on beautiful land!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great weekend stay at Memory Mountain. This is an authentic log cabin...the real deal. Beautiful craftsmanship with all the modern amentities of home. We loved relaxing by the fireplace each night and exploring the property during the day with Steve and Lobo. You feel away from it all, but just a quick drive to Weaverville for a nice dinner and shopping. We're excited to host our wedding here this coming fall.
