Sydney Falls Cabin - managed by Master Diamond Properties.

This luxury mountain log home is located in the beautiful gated community of Catawba Falls Preserve, about 15 minutes to Black Mountain and about 30 minutes to Asheville. The community backs up to the Pisgah National Forest. Behind the home, there is a knee deep river with a waterfall right on the property along with miles of hiking trails. Hear the sounds of the creek right from the large back deck. The home is 4200 square ft and was built in 2007.  

There is a master king bedroom with a TV on the main level with ensuite bathroom and 2 queen bedrooms on the top level with one full bathroom. The lower level features 1 bunk room with 2 bunk beds (4 beds) and 1 queen bedroom separated by a large rec room and a full bathroom.  There are 5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. The home sleeps 12 in beds. The back deck wraps around with plenty of seating and relaxing in the hammock swings and rocking chairs. 

Bordering a vast forest preserve, Catawba Falls presents gated acreage home sites 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, careers 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.

Why the owners chose Black Mountain for their mountain getaway:
I started the first of many adventures in the mountains of North Carolina in 1979 when I walked thought the gates of Camp Ridgecrest for Boys located just five minutes from Black Mountain, NC. That year started an annual summer tradition of hiking, camping, paddling and clean mountain living that lasted until 1987. After that year, I returned to the Black Mountain area for many summers to attend various camp type reunions and hiking trips. These return trips to the mountains were always a yearly highlight, but over time, the trips became less and less to eventually none at all. However, in 2006, my oldest son enrolled at Camp Ridgecrest for Boys and the return to the hills once again awakened many long forgotten memories. The cool fresh air, the lush green mountains, the deer, the turkey, and the cool, crisp mountain mornings instantly reignited a long forgotten passion for the area. That same summer we decided to build a cabin so my wife and I could be in the mountains while our son was attending camp. After touring many of the areas various available properties, we discovered the beautiful development of Catawba Falls Preserve and the building soon began. We currently have three boys who all attend Camp Ridgecrest and we have an awesome retreat buried deep in the mountains complete with a clear water stream and waterfall. However, be forewarned, once the sights and smells of the mountains of N.C gets into your blood, you will never again be the same!

A Fantastic Vacation!
Posted on: 1/9/2016

Dear Homeowners, Your cabin is amazing! Ourselves and another family vacationed in your home last June when taking our girls to camp, and we had an awesome time. The home is spacious with beautiful yet comfortable furnishings. The kids loved having their own place downstairs to watch TV and play games or ping pong. The adults enjoyed sitting on the back porch rockers watching the sun set over the mountains with a nice bottle of wine. It was very relaxing. Our favorite part was taking the path down the back yard to the waterfall - our kids played in the water for hours. It was also nice how close the cabin is to everything - if we felt like eating in, we grabbed food from the nearby grocery store and cooked or grilled-- the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to prepare a meal. Or, some nights we headed out to the cute shops and restarurants nearby -- our favorite being the farm-to-table restaurant "Black Bird" in the Cheshire Village. It was a perfect vacation and we look forward to staying in your home again. Thank you! :)

Amazing home, peaceful location
Posted on: 1/9/2016

This luxurious cabin in the beautiful Black Mountain area is truly a peaceful retreat! It is very quiet and private and offers several areas to "chill." This spacious house is perfect for large groups with a separate area downstairs for the kids to hang out. The open kitchen and living area is great for entertaining. There are decks off the back of the house with comfortable chairs and rockers which offer a great place to read a book or visit with friends. The sound of the waterfall, which is just down the hill in the back, is the perfect backdrop to help you relax. The furnishing are beautiful yet comfortable. I enjoyed the fireplace at night after a long day of activites. This house offers everything you need. I love the location. It is a fifteen minute drive to the charming downtown of Black Mountain. There are several places to eat and shop. A new grocery store is perfectly located as you head up the mountain as well as Chesire Village which offers gormet foods and wine. I enjoyed visiting Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, Asheville, Hendersonville and Grandfather Mountain. I highly recommend this property!

A wonderful place to spend Christmas!
Posted on: 1/9/2016

We had three generations of family stay at this lovely home for Christmas and had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful and accurately depicted in the description/photos. There is enough room for families to have their own space, yet the common areas were more than comfortable for our group of 10. The house was well-stocked with all the basics visitors would need. Michael, who coordinated our rental, was amazingly helpful. We could not have asked for an easier rental and check-in process. The location is ideal as well. The town of Black Mountain is quaint and charming. We also drove a very manageable hour to the Sugar Mountain Ski Resort and enjoyed a nice day of snowboarding. Asheville is an easy 20 minute drive with wonderful restaurants, breweries, shops, art galleries, and, of course, the Biltmore. It's a perfect area for nature-lovers as well with hiking trails nearby. This area and home would be a great getaway any season of the year. We had a wonderful time and hope to come back again!

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are so glad you had a fun and memorable holiday in Black Mountain. Please visit again in the future!

Excellent Accommodations for Family Vacation
Posted on: 1/9/2016

Great accommodations for our family consisting of 12 adults including two children. Very well equipped beyond expectations, clean and well-maintained. Welcoming note and bottle of wine was an added touch. Was particularly surprised by the large size of the lower level bunk bed rooms and recreation room. The large utility room with washer/dryer made storing items very handy. Managing company was very helpful in answering all questions concerning area. Information was made available on activities, restaurants, etc. in the area, however having relatives in Asheville and attending a wedding with several events planned did not need much information. Definitely recommend your consideration of these accommodations. 


Thank you so much for your nice review! We are happy that the home was accommodating for your group. Please come stay again soon!

Best, Michael and Jason Master Diamond Properties
