About Matt and Katie
Our family currently lives in Ohio but our hearts are in North Carolina. We just love Western North Carolina and the Lake Lure Area in particular.
Matt and Katie purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Matt and Katie chose Lake Lure
This luxurious property has the best views of Chimney Rock Mountain in our gated community with resort amenities. The cabin is nestled on 4.1 acres in a 100-acre gated community and is very secluded, tranquil, and relaxing. We love the area and love the great motorcycle roads and hiking in this part of the country.

Relaxation at its finest!
We stayed at The Overlook for our "family-moon" in late February. We were super-impressed at the location of the cabin and floored with its breathtaking views! The owner was fantastic with communication and helped us quickly lengthen our stay at the last minute.
The cabin was super clean and had tons of great features so the kids were completely entertained so we could have some quiet time. We felt safe and secure at the cabin. Quaint grocery within 8 miles of the cabin. Very convenient!! We hated leaving but we will be back! This cabin could easily accommodate two families wanting to vacation together. Would highly recommend The Overlook. Well worth the price.
The mountain views are from our cabin are indeed priceless! And, yes, our cabin really is the perfect place to celebrate with family and friends so we are so happy that you had an amazing “family-moon” getaway! We pride ourselves on being available to our guests 24/7, and we are delighted that we could extend your stay with us – we only wish that you could have stayed longer. Thank you for commenting on the fact that our cabin is super clean, safe, and secure because we work very hard to ensure that our guests have everything they need to make our cabin their own. And there is so much to do in and around the cabin – the opportunities for both “adventure” and “peace and quiet” are endless. You never know how much you appreciate a quality grocery store until you can’t find one, so we are very blessed to have an Ingles Markets conveniently down the road from our cabin. Thank you for the wonderful review and high recommendation, and we are delighted to hear that you are planning staying with us again!
This was our first experience with VRBO and it went great. The owners were quick to respond to any questions and the cabin was perfect for us! The views were so beautiful and even better than we expected. When you drive over, be prepared to lose cellphone reception and print out some directions!
This place is Absolutely Awesome! Fabulous stay!

The best mountain rental that we have had in the last 10 years!
The house is gorgeous. Everything was extremely clean and stocked up. Matt and Katie were great to work with and were always quick to respond. They have thought of everything at the house. It is great for larger family/friend groups....but it was even better for just the two of us to have a quiet weekend away. The access to Rumbling Bald was very convenient. I travel with a sports fan/addict so all of the TVs (they were everywhere you looked) were a perfect touch! We are looking forward to our next stay!

Perfect place to call home base
Traveled to the area from Canada with 5 Adult's for 10 days of cycling in the Lake Lure/Asheville region, the house was absolutely everything we hoped for... Quiet, private and more than spacious enough for our crew. lots of great amenities in the house...We plan on returning and wouldn't need to look elsewhere.. The communication between property owners and myself was perfect and as a property owner myself I know everything thats involved...
Thanks for a great spot to call our own for the week...

Lake Lure, North Carolina was listed by National Geographic as one of the top 10 most beautiful man-made lakes in the world. In fact, this scenic area provided the stage for the films "Dirty Dancing" and "The Last of the Mohicans."
The Overlook at Lake Lure is the perfect vacation destination for any season since it is located in the isothermal belt of North Carolina, nestled between the rolling Piedmont hills and the Blue Ridge Mountains, an area known for warmer winters and cooler summers.
In addition to your stay at our luxurious mountain retreat, you will enjoy our complimentary membership benefits at the Rumbling Bald Resort of Lake Lure - additional fees are required for some resort amenities.
