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
Private and peaceful setting overlooking a 2 acre stocked lake. Two streams on the property, an apple orchard and lots of open area for children to play. 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.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
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.
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!
Ralaxing family vacation
My family and I really enjoyed our stay. There was an issues with the living room satellite and DVD player and the owner send someone to try to fix it right away. Even though they were not able to fix it we honestly did not need it. We have so much fun with fishing and board games. It was a nice detox.
We are glad you enjoyed yourselves and were able to share a birthday at the house. Thanks for staying with us and taking care of our house during your stay. Regards, Brian & Barb
Happy Wince Vacation!
WE enjoyed everything during our stay at Linger Lodge last week. Couldn't ask for anything better!
Thank you very much for letting us stay at your lodge.
Look forward to visiting again.
A great spot for my family of 8 adults and 5 children. We only left the property to get groceries. The large field, stream, and pond provided endless fun for my entire family. We caught several bluegill and a few bass. Already planning our next trip.
We are glad to hear your family enjoyed themselves. The property is indeed fun for kids to explore and fish. And there is always something about the country air for the adults. It would be great to have you back again. The fall has its special moments as well at LLL.
All the best,
Brian & Barb
A great place. We met family from out of town for vacation. It's close enough to the village of Chimney Rock to do some tourist things and remote enough to feel like you are getting away from it all. The lodge was very well kept and the large field and pond provided the perfect spot for kids and adults both to have fun.
