About the property


(pet friendly) (3 night minimum stay)

There is a line in the movie Hitch that reminds me of this home: Life is not the amount of breaths you take, it's the moments that take your breath away. It is aptly named Mountain Moments because every moment you behold the magnificent views, whether you are outside on the deck or inside looking out through the two-story wall of windows, the beauty of western North Carolina will take your breath away! Guests have called the splendor therapeutic. This is a home you will not want to leave. When you do, it is a home you will want to return to again and again, no matter the season.

Whether it is to get away for a long weekend or relaxing vacation, just step inside Mountain Moments and you will feel your stress melt away. The wall of windows, stone fireplace, and hardwood walls and floors of the great room give an instant feeling of warmth and comfort. Just imagine enjoying a gorgeous sunset while relaxing in front of a blazing fire.

With three spacious bedrooms, a loft sleeping area, and two (2) full baths, there is ample room for seven (7) guests. The fully equipped kitchen has a dishwasher, refrigerator, range, microwave, coffee maker, and a variety of small appliances. In the hall is a stacked washer / dryer. For entertainment, the home offers a TV, VCR/DVD and selection of movies, a stereo with an iPod connection, and Internet service!

Dine al fresco on the open deck (gas grill) with a outdoor fireplace to keep you warm. This is also a perfect spot for your morning coffee or tea.

Mountain Moments is located in Sugar Hill, North Carolina 15 minutes south of Marion, 20 minutes from Old Fort and 20 minutes to the Lake Lure / Chimney Rock area. This log home is convenient to Lake James, Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, and Black Mountain. It is 45 minutes from Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

In addition to some of the most breathtaking views you will ever see, western North Carolina offers a number of entertainment and activity options. Click our VISITOR INFORMATION tab for details.

Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I drove here from CT to visit our son who is stationed in GA. Our niece from TN also joined us. The house was perfect. The views were breathtaking. We hiked at Chimney Rock, went tubing down the Green River, golfed, and ate out one night in Black Mountain at The Palate Restaurant. Spent the evenings around the fire pit making s'mores and listening to guitar. We also brought our dog, she was so happy to see our son. Everyone had a great time.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Our four-day, three-night stay at "Mountain Moments" truly was "heaven." The view from the deck was amazing! The kitchen was well-stocked. We were able to cook all of our meals. The decor was lovely. Kudos to the cleaning staff--the cabin was spotless! We had more than enough room for three couples and two children. This house is GREAT for children. Our grandchildren LOVED the big closet in the master bedroom suite upstairs. They called it their "playhouse." It was filled with stuffed animals, little wooden table and chairs, a tea set, Winnie-the-Pooh high chair, stroller, and carrier for all the babies, a castle, and all sorts of little toys. . .just a perfect little spot! Our daughters and their husbands were able to enjoy some sightseeing/hiking in the area. They loved Chimney Rock, Lake Lure, and also found some beautiful waterfalls. The patio is awesome. . .we would like to come back when it is cooler so we can use the firepit. The gas grill was great for cooking evening meals. Thanks for a great trip. We definitely hope to return!

Beautiful views! Wonderful, pet-friendly home!

  • 5 of 5

This space was a savior as we had planned to visit a family property and our visit was cancelled suddenly. We were so lucky to have found this gem of a cabin! We were very impressed with the updates the current photos do not show (new appliances and super comfy living room furniture). The outdoor patio with fire pit was a great addition to our stay as we really enjoyed making s'mores on our last night. The house is stocked with anything you could've possibly forgotten to bring with you (medicine, shampoo, paper towels, etc.) The cabin is in a good location as listed. It is a scenic drive to Lake Lure and about 40 minutes to The Biltmore. We recommend checking out Highland Brewery too! It was crucial that we bring our sweet Pomeranian! Pet-friendly renters are the best!! The only thing bad about this visit is that it had to end. We hope to visit Mountain Moments again!

Best Mountain View

  • 5 of 5

This house has a really great mountain view! The nights were just cool enough to use the wood burning fireplace! Everything was clean and comfortable. Loved the hard wood floors. We were looking for a private location and a romantic property and we can't wait to return! Check -in/out was easy and Carolina Properties was very easy to deal with.

My wife and I were excited to stay in this cabin based on the pictures and they don't do it justice. Everything was so well thought out from how perfectly decorated each room is to the view from the deck. We've stayed in multiple cabins around the Asheville area in the previous couple years and this one takes the cake. The only problem with this cabin is he didn't rent it the entire week :) Carolina properties was very easy to deal with too, even on such late notice.
