About Brian Meckes - Linger Lake Lodge LLC

Dianne and I on the Pinnacle lookout at the top of our mountain. On a clear day with binoculars you can see the tall buildings of Charlotte (97 miles away by the mountain roads) and on a clear night the lights glow on the horizon.

Brian Meckes - Linger Lake Lodge LLC purchased this house in 2005

Why Brian Meckes - Linger Lake Lodge LLC chose Asheville Area

When Dianne and I made a trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains 40 years ago we fell in love with the scenic beauty of the overlooks, streams, rivers, hicking trails and wildlife that is abundent to this area. We thought 'one day we would like to retire to these mountains' and our dream came true when we found this place after 2 years of searching for the perfect spot. The clean air, fish in the lake, apples on the trees and sounds of nature in the darkness of night made our decission to buy an easy one. Our main motivation was to have a place we could retire to one day and till then, enjoy with our family and friends and share with those who want to experience the beauty and peace that the mountains have to offer.

a great hidaway!

  • 5 of 5

We took the whole family for a week to this house. It was wonderful. The view from the wrap around porch was beautiful. The family enjoyed fishing and hiking. Perfect in everyway. The house was unbelieveable.

The owner was helpful and freindly.

Relaxing and Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at LLL during our daughter's wedding at Grand Highlands at Bearwallow Mounttain. The entire bridal party stayed at the lodge and really loved it. If you are searching for the right spot to relax you can stop searching. We have stayed at many cabins in the Blue Ridge Moutains and none were as comfortable and accomodating as LLL.

Perfect for our family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults, 3 youngsters, and one baby had a wonderful time at LLL in June of 2013. The accommodations were exactly what we needed and the kind of location we were looking for - all 4 couples had their own bedroom, and the kids had the loft. There were plenty of bathrooms for all and the dining and relaxing areas were big enough too. Lots of outdoor space: screened porch, deck, and a huge grassy area for games and gathering. The creek runs through the property and the waterfall or sliding rock were not far away. We spent time at Chimney Rock (town and Park), and Lake Lure beach. Short day trips to Biltmore, Asheville, Black Mountain and Montreat were easy to do. But hanging around the property was tons of fun on its own.

Great family reunion

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful inside and out and easily accomodated our family of ten. The children loved the loft area and the ladder to reach it. The kitchen was very well stocked and was immaculate. We were able to have a campfire at the fire pit, play baseball in the spacious yard, and enjoy the small island in the creek as it morphed into a pirate ship. We stayed the first weekend in December and were delighted to have the house alread decorated for Christmas. We all hope to go back in warmer weather.

Three couples stayed at Linger Lake Lodge for a week in late fall. It was a beautiful property, well-maintained and extremely clean. The lake house had many large windows that let in lots of natural light. It was also well-stocked with kitchen items, linens, games, etc. The owner was extremely helpful and willing to address any questions before and during our stay. We would definitely stay again!

The Perfect Spot for our "Old Friends" Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our group of retired teachers chose Linger Lake Lodge for this year's reunion. This was just the perfect spot in the NC mountains and a wonderful time of year to enjoy the Fall foliage color and activities. Located between Bat Cave and Black Mountain, this home is within easy driving distance to Lake Lure, Hendersonville, and Asheville and many activities and restaurants that we enjoyed.

The house has four nice bedrooms plus a loft for extra guests. The layout had everything our group needed and more. The view from the porch rocking chairs is delightful with morning coffee or an evening snack.

John, the owner, was very helpful and easy to reach. As a great host, he has gone beyond the expected to provide a perfect get away experience for groups or just a couple. And this would be a great spot for families with kids, as well as all adults, as we were. I have already recommended LLL to some friends and I hope we can return some day.
