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 7.6 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.

Carr cousins nine reunion
We absolutely loved the Overlook. Beautiful location , wonderful amenities just a wonderful home to relax in and enjoy ourselves.
Fun and comfortable getaway
Our group of 6 really enjoyed our stay. The property was in great shape and had plenty of space. In our down time, we really enjoyed the game room with ping pong and foosball, and we managed to take advantage of the access to Rumbling Bald Resort which was fun. The view from the deck was excellent and a great place to enjoy morning coffee. Matt was great about answering questions and responding to our requests. Overall a very enjoyable stay!
We went with 6 adults and there was something special for everyone. The view was spectacular. The parents mostly enjoyed relaxing with the view and the younger couples especially enjoyed the pinball machines and pool table. We all enjoyed the movie room and the cooking facilaties..
e the words of my soon to be 8 year old “it was awesome!” My wife and kids and I rented the Overlook for just about a month to get away from South Florida this summer. It was a fantastic choice. The house is incredible. Everything from the video games and foosball/pool/ping pong/hockey tables and the board games were great for stay at home play days. And the club was great for activities and mini golf and bingo and trivia nights! The property is beautiful and peaceful with amazing views. Matt and Katie were incredibly responsive and checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. They think of every detail and really take pride in making sure we had a fantastic time....and we did. We miss it already and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get away from it all and still enjoy all of the creature comforts, including great wi-fi so I could get my work done.
Thanks for a great time and amazing memories. Also, thank you for allowing us to bring our dog, who loved taking walks around the neighborhood and trying to see if the bunnies were out. It was awesome all around!
