About Brian & Barb Meckes
I was raised in the country outside of Palmerton, PA. My wife grew up in Morris Plains, NJ. We met at work in the mid 80’s and married shortly afterward. We moved to the Orlando, FL area in the late 80’s and lived there for approximately 20 years. While in Florida we had two children – Jessi & Alex. Jessi loves anything and everything about horses and Alex enjoys living the big city life (lived in NYC after college and now lives in Boston). In 2006 we moved to the Raleigh, NC area and shortly afterward fell in love with the Asheville, NC area. We decided we would someday retire in this area.
Brian & Barb Meckes purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Brian & Barb Meckes chose Black Mountain
While Florida offered warm weather, many attractions and beautiful beaches – we missed the mountains. A friend owned a cabin in the Smokey Mountains in Blairsville, GA. We vacationed there often and enjoyed the hikes, views and country air. Eventually work led us to Raleigh, NC. We vacationed in the Asheville area and immediately fell in love with the beauty of the mountains. We decided we wanted to purchase an early retirement home in the area. It took three years and many miles of driving but we finally found the house we knew we would call home. It happened to be Linger Lake Lodge.
What makes this Cabin unique

Approximately 15 minutes from Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. The shops of Hendersonville and Black Mountain are approximately 25 minutes. The city of Asheville is approximately 40 minutes from our home.

Black Mountain High
Everyone was pleased with the furnishings in the house. The welcome basket was a special touch we all enjoyed. My Wife & I tried our hand at fishing and caught a couple of bass from the pond! The outdoor grill patio was fantastic and we enjoyed the lighted overhead cover. Overall, a wonderful experience! I would highly recommend this property to anyone!
Barb and I are glad you enjoyed your stay. Sounds like the fishing was a good side attraction between touring the area. We hope you will consider staying with us again sometime in the future.

Great Location for a Relaxing Weekend
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lodge. Love sitting with a pond and a Creek only steps away from the house. Calm, serene and relaxing all around. Thanks so much!
Hi Cathy - we are glad you enjoyed your stay at our house and were able to relax in the country air. We hope you will consider us again sometime in the future to get away to the NC mountains. Best regards, Brian & Barb
Beautiful and relaxing getaway
This mountain home was just what we needed for our 8 adults and 4 children, and is conveniently halfway between Raleigh and Atlanta. Both the inside and outside were beautiful and comfortable, and not cluttered with small/fragile items (always risky with toddlers!). The kids and adults loved being outside - relaxing on the expansive porch, exploring, fishing, etc. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed. We had no problems with the booking, house, or anything else and would gladly return. Wonderful place! Thank you!
Thank you Mindy - we are glad you enjoyed yourselves and hope the kids caught some fish! Please consider us again sometime in the future for a relaxing vacation. Brian & Barb
Beautiful and comfy
Our group of 60 year old friends from high school had a wonderful time at Linger Lake Lodge. Place is very well provisioned and maintained. Held 10 of us very comfortably
We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you back sometime for another reunion.

Two extended families spent four wonderful nights in this mountain cabin. We were so appreciative of the extreme cleanliness, welcome basket, generous supplies of towels, comfortable beds and commodious accommodations. The cabin is very private with a lovely small lake and meadow where the grandchildren were able to play lots of outdoor games.
I have stayed in many rentals, and this one is the best. We are all hoping to return next year. Thank you Brian and Barb.
We are glad you and your guests enjoyed your stay. Sounds like the kids had fun as well playing outdoors on the property. It would great to have you return again in the future. Thank you for the nice review. Brian & Barb
Great Family Get-Away
We had an amazing time! The owners were very friendly. The cabin was beautiful and very clean! We enjoyed our evenings by the fire pit. The boys loved fishing at the lake and throwing the football in the open spaces outside. We do not have one complaint and highly recommend this property! We are already looking at dates to return. Thank you!
We are glad you and your family enjoyed your stay with us. It sounds like the kids had their fun too with fishing and playing on the property. We would love to have you back sometime. Brian & Barb
