This 3500 square foot, gorgeous log home is located in Catawba Falls Preserve, a gated mountain community with paved roads. The community backs up to the Pisgah National Forest. We are located just 8 miles (15 minutes) from the town of Black Mountain and 23 miles (30 minutes) from Asheville. The home has Three master king bedroom suites on levels two and three. Each master suite has it’s own bathroom, 2 with shower/tubs and one with a stand up shower and Jacuzzi tub. There are two bedrooms and two pull out queen sofa beds (new April 2017) on the first level. One of these has 2 double beds and it’s own bathroom with standup shower while the other has a double/twin bunk bed, a separate full bed and its own shower/bath tub.

This property offers 2-3 families a great vacation with total privacy. The property sits on 2 acres with breathtaking views all around. There is a large deck in the back, which is great for entertaining. There is a gas grill and fire pit and plenty of rocking chairs for relaxing. You will love entertaining in the large basement with ping pong and plenty of board games for all ages. We have Verizon Wi-Fi for your internet needs. Our kitchen is equipped for large gatherings and has everything you need for a home cooked meal.

For nature lovers, there are numerous hiking trails with streams, rivers and waterfalls. We have a creek with a fire pit area right down a short trail from our back yard! Wildlife is abundant at the Preserve. You are likely to encounter wild turkeys, rabbits, deer, fox, birds, and black bears. Of course, there is no hunting at the Preserve. Thank you for considering our log home for your next vacation.

When not using it, please turn it off by switching off the power on the back. Thank you for making sure WiFi is turned off when you check out.
12. Checkout: Disposing of garbage in the mountains is not a simple process. There is no garbage pickup at the house! Because there are bears in the area, this community does not allow garbage to be stored outside. This is for both your and the bears' protection. At this time, all garbage must be taken to the dumpster.
When you are checking out, we ask that you make sure all trash is taken to the dumpster at Old Fort (2951 Bat Cave Road, Old Fort, NC; Open M W F Sat 6:30 am-6:30 pm); failure to remove trash from the house could result in extra charges. The dumpster is not open on Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday or Holidays. If your departure is on one of these days, please plan ahead. We would appreciate it if you would put all dirty dishes, etc. in the dishwasher, and that you have all of your personal possessions. Please see that all doors are locked and the key is replaced in the key box.
We hope that your stay in the area will be relaxing and without incident, but should you need to get in touch with the Homeowner, please call or text Rebecca Tyler, 502-744-7774.
