About Matt Markling

Our family currently lives in Ohio but our hearts are in North Carolina. We just love North Carolina and the Lake Lure area in particular.

Matt Markling purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Matt Markling chose Asheville Area

This property has the best views of Chimney Rock Mountain in our gated community. The cabin is nestled on 4.1 acres and is very secluded, tranquil, and relaxing. We love the area and love the great motorcycle roads in this part of the country.

What makes this cabin unique

We fell in love with this home for the spectacular views of Chimney Rock Mountain and the secluded feel of this gated community. The great room is just spectacular with the vaulted ceilings and gorgeous views. It is a warm and inviting log home. Having access to Rumbling Bald Resort makes our stay there even more enjoyable.

Relaxation at its finest!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 adults had a very enjoyable 3 night stay at the Overlook. Matt is awesome and responds to your every need within minutes. The cabin was well stocked with everything we needed, even had a nice little bonus of a an inch+ plus of snow the morning we left, which made the amazing view even better. Our group is the type who gets there and likes to not have to leave for anything all weekend and this place delivered with ping ping and pool to help make a relaxing weekend of hanging out easier. Would not hesitate to book again should busy life allow :)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review and high recommendation, and we are so happy you had an amazing and relaxing weekend getaway! We pride ourselves on making ourselves available to our guests 24/7. Our cabin is the perfect place to celebrate with family and friends, and we work very hard to ensure that our guests have everything they need to make our cabin your home. Our guests love the game room (ping pong, pool, and more), and the mountain views are indeed spectacular. As an aside, we rarely get snow in our area so the slight sprinkling of snow was an extra bonus – on us – at no charge just for being great guests. We really do appreciate return guests, and we look forward to your next stay with us. Thank you!

We had a wonderful time staying at the Overlook. The owner was very accommodating. There was lots of space for our large group and we especially enjoyed using the outdoor firepit.

Amazing and relaxing! Had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is just amazing! From the main area that is open facing the mountains, so wakeup to the view and the sunsets are spectacular! There is a down stairs with rooms and game room with pool table had a blast!

There is a deck that overlooks everything we spent a lot of time out there by the firepit! So relaxed and had a amazing birthday while we was here!
