Why the Owner Chose Black Mountain: After living in South Florida for 20 years, we searched for an escape up in the mountains. We built this custom log home in 2007 and vacationed in it for 2 years. We enjoyed this incredible lifestyle so much that we decided in to move to Asheville in the summer of 2009. We briefly lived at the lodge and really enjoyed it. We have since opened a medical office in Asheville and need to be close to the practice as well as the kid's school. That is the reason we have now decided to offer this incredible property for others to enjoy. We know you will love this property and the breathtaking mountains as much as we do!

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge: Bordering a vast forest preserve, Catawba Falls presents gated acreage homesites with stunning views of the Pisgah National Forest. You'll feel a thousand miles away in your mountainside dream vacation home, yet you'll be minutes from the culture and conveniences of Asheville and Black Mountain. There are numerous hiking trails, streams and rivers, and waterfalls nearby. Wildlife is abundant in the Preserve. The most common animals that you may encounter are deer, wild turkey, rabbits, birds, fox, and black bears. Of course, there is absolutely no hunting in the Preserve.If this property is unavailable, we may have others available. Please visit our website:

Beautiful Cabin
Posted on: 1/15/2016

The cabin is beautiful and very well stocked. It's nice to have more spices on vacation than at home! We enjoyed relaxing on the deck and family game nights. The kids loved the ping pong and arcade games. The downstairs wet bar was also very nice. The Lower Catawba Falls is spectacular and both Black Mountain and Asheville are beautiful, vibrant towns. I'm sure we will be back!

Big family paradise
Posted on: 1/15/2016

First time VBRO user and it paid off.

This large mountain home was in an amazing spot in Black Mtn but only 30 mins from waterfall hiking, Lake Lure and Lookout Mtn, and Biltmore. The home was in fantastic shape, clean and filled with all the amenities you can imagine. Our group ranged from grandma, to mom and dad, 5 kids and a newborn and small dog.  The home has a fantastic game room, a hot tub and the entrance to the neighborhood is gated for a secure feeling. 

We cooked out on the grill a couple times and had wonderful family dinners at the large table. We were even able to have family pictures taken recommended by the owner and KateWalters Photography did a fabulous job.

Book this home .... You will love the peace and quiet, oh we did see bears as well, mama and three Cubs.

Wonderful Family Time
Posted on: 1/15/2016

We had a wonderful family time in the cabin! The kitchen was always fully stocked and there were constant lively footsteps as we ran around enjoying ourselves. We spent much time out exploring the area - shopping, touring the Biltmore Estate, white water rafting, horseback riding, hiking and zip lining! The cabin was perfect for the whole family. The porch chairs were a hit as was the hot tub and we shared a few fun meals around the dining room table. Loved the area and can't wait to return soon!

P.S. Saw a mama bear and 2 cubs one night driving through the community!

Great Accomodations and Beautiful Surrounding
Posted on: 1/15/2016

Sometimes when you look forward to something for a long time, the actual event is somewhat of a disappointment. Such was NOT the case for out weekend here at the Catawba Falls Lodge. The accommodations and the beautiful surroundings far surpassed our expectations. Thank you so much for such a wonderful vacation destination.

Each time one of us five siblings turns 60, we all come together for a weekend at the location chosen by the birthday person. So glad sibling #3 chose this! We came from MI, SC, OK, and MN.

Wow! Perfect place to be together inside and out.
Posted on: 1/15/2016

We met for a sibling celebration and the space was perfect. The open floor plan allowed us to be together. The deck outside was another great place to hang out.  The kitchen was equipped with everything you would need with lots of space. The grill and hot tub were great. All the beds were comfortable. We highly recommend this home.  The owners were great to work with!


Thank you so much for your excellent review. We really appreciate it and are glad you had such a nice weekend in the mountains celebrating your 60th birthday with your family.

The best home rental our family has ever had!
Posted on: 1/15/2016

This house is gorgeous both inside and out. Its location is ideal for the get away from everything type of vacation, yet close to the fabulous town of Black Mountain, NC. The bedrooms are wonderful and spacious, and laid out well for extended families with rooms for adults and kids. The living room is more like a great room with a beautiful wrap-around deck up one story off the ground with a fantastic view.

The kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment, as we ate in more than out. The drive into this property is quite a winding road, so plan your trips well so it is not a problem. The hiking in the community is nice, especially to the Lower Catawba Falls, which the guys did with all 4 grandkids ages 7,5,4,& 2. So hiking in the area was one of our favorite things to do. It is close to Asheville for all its activities, but local fun is easy to find. The hot tub was wonderful especially the first evening when temps got below 40 deg. We did have a little problem with the heating (first use since last spring), but contacting the owner was easy and we figured out it was a weak battery in the thermostat. The Wi-Fi made looking up activities and planning around the weather a breeze (no pun intended), since cell phone coverage on the mountain was limited (Verizon worked fine).

Great Mountain Rental
Posted on: 1/15/2016

We celebrated my husband's 60th birthday with four other couples and had a blast.  The house was just as described.  All the amenities, the game room, the hot tub, the comfortable bedrooms, the well equipped kitchen, the decks...gave us all plenty of room to enjoy the party or get away from the crowd to read or take a nap. The community where the house is located is quiet and remote.  My dog and I walked several times a day and only once saw other people(of course this was January).  The town of Black Mountain was charming and had everything our group needed.

I would like to thank the owners for their friendly and accommodating care and service.  We enjoyed our stay in their  lovely and very personal home.


Hi Susan, thank you for your excellent review of our log home! It is a little slice of paradise and we are glad you and your family enjoyed it as much as we do. Please come back and stay again in the future. Sincerely, Michael and Bernadette

Great for large families; very well appointed
Posted on: 1/15/2016

Our family is large -  6 kids, two dads, three moms, two grandmas and one grandpa - Whew! But this house had more than ample room for us all. Of special note is the game room where the children spent the rainy days playing video games, board games and shuffle board while the adults played pool and ping pong. 

The porches were great with the assortment of hammocks, rockers, tables and chairs. It was perfect for stargazing, watching the sun rise or doing nothing except taking in the fresh air. 

And of course the best part has nothing to do with the house but the owners themselves. They were thoughtful, very responsive and delightful to work with. 

In all, a very memorable vacation!

Wow! Thank you so much for your excellent review of our mountain log home and your kind words. It is a perfect home for extended families to gather and have fun. We are thrilled that you have enjoyed the home and the mountains as much as we do. Come back soon!

Special Mountain Retreat
Posted on: 1/15/2016

Like so many other Floridians, we head to the mountains each summer. This cabin was a special treat with everything you could want here. Our family of 12 went many different ways during the week - hiking, gem mining, kayaking, shopping and visiting local restaurants. Thanks for sharing your beautiful cabin with us!

The house is lovely. The owners are the best people!
Posted on: 1/15/2016

The house is lovely.  It was a great fit for our family: Mom and Dad, our 2 children with their spouses and our 18 month old granddaughter.   We love to cook and serve with nice serve ware and everything was available. Our beds were comfortable, always our first issue.  We really loved the deck with all the swings and the jacuzzi was awesome.  Best of all, the owners are lovely people who answered our questions immediately.


Thank you for your nice review and kind words. We always strive to answer all questions and concerns as quick as possible. We are glad your family had such a nice time and enjoyed the incredible fall colors this year. Please come back again soon!
