Steve and Joy Powell believe children are the future and nothing is more important then giving children a solid foundation for life. They strongly feel great memories should be shared. Memory Mountain is full of personal memories experienced by their family over the past 2 decades and continue presently. It is their vision to give others a mystical place to make memories with those they care about. Memory Mountain has the potential to grow great character in your children and grandchildren.

Both Joy and Steve are from large families. Steve is 1 of 7 brothers, his Dad kept trying for a daughter until his mom put a stop to it. Joy has 5 brothers and sisters and is a native to North Carolina (4th generation).

Steve powell purchased this lodge in 2010

It's easy to get here. There are not miles of windy 2 lane country roads . I-26 intersects with I-95 so if gas tanks allowed - you could get here traffic light free. There are 2 airports Asheville, NC 35 miles or Tri-Cities, TN 50 miles. Both cities have great rates flying Allegiant Air.

Memory Mountain features over 200 acres to enjoy. You will not have to leave the mountain to fish, hike, bird watch, soak in a private hot tub, visit a chapel.

Extras: wi-fi, Directv (over 570 channels - local, movies, sports, Disney), free long distance land lines (cell phones are iffy here therefore land lines are included to ensure safety. Please enjoy unlimited calls out or in. Steve and Joy Powell (owners) live on Memory Mountain to assist all guest with any issue that may occur.

Level building pads here. This lodge is built on stem wall footers. There are no steep drops or stilts like most mountain cabins. The lodges are well planned to allow privacy and safety. There is plenty of driveway parking. Traffic is light because of the low home/acreage ratio.

Holidays! You can have it all away from home. Gifts can be mailed to the Powell address or store pick up is available at 2 very close Walmart's (Weaverville, NC or Erwin, TN). There are Christmas tree farms in Mars Hill to cut your own tree. Dishes to prepare and enjoy holiday meals are included as well as a large full size kitchen.

Weddings. We have a chapel and beautiful mountain back drops 24/7.

Please ask any question... we will find an answer.

Mountains weather - cold summer nights it was 53 degrees last night (August). Spring brings new growth, wild and farm animals and wild flowers. Autumn shows off the wild colorful leaves changing the views in every direction. Winter brings the snow making skiing, tubing, sledding and snowman making possible.

The cabins feature many unique charms such as wormy chestnut logs and wood, arrowheads found on the grounds, nooks for children to explore, private outdoor fire pits and plenty of gathering space indoors and out. A great deal of time has been spent collecting local reclaimed wood to build Memory Mountains' cabins and it shows.

FABULOUS FOURTH!

  • 5 out of 5
After many weeks of searching VRBO I came to find this property for my extended family of 7 adults and 4 kids for a long July 4th weekend. The house was beautifully appointed with many intricate treasures (harkening to Steve's love of "picking"). But it wasn't just the house that was warm and welcoming, it was also the owner, Steve. He went out of his way to make sure all of his guests in his multiple properties felt like they were being catered to one on one. From the generosity of loaning his four-wheeler to the young children (and kids at heart) to letting our kids pick farm fresh eggs to making his own fireworks display on top of the mountain, Steve was a lovely man to be around. Steve found a special affinity for welcoming my daughter with a wave and a bellowed "Hello!" every time he passed by on the trail, or teasing the boys about the size fish they caught. He became part of our family retreat and we left after his impromptu church service on Sunday feeling as if touched by a true extension of Christ. This was an absolutely fabulous fourth of July!

GREAT LOCATION FOR FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 out of 5
Waterfall Lodge was the perfect location for our family reunion. We actually extended our visit because we were having such a great time. 18 of us (8 adults, 10 kids) were very comfortable in the large, well-equipped home. The kids loved exploring the property and fishing. The owners are very friendly and responsive, and did everything they could to make our trip perfect. We stayed close to home except for one trip into Weaverville for dinner at Blue Mountain Pizza - highly recommended! We hope to make Waterfall Lodge an annual family tradition. Many thanks!

BEST WEEKEND EVER!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I had our wedding on the property and our family and friends stayed at the other cabins from the property owners. This turned out to be the best weekend of my life thanks to the people, wonderful location, and property owners. I can not say enough good things about my stay this weekend and all of the other times I have been here. It is very quite and peaceful at the cabin, so if you are looking for hustle and bustle of the city this won't be for you. The owners will do everything they can to ensure you have a great stay, they are very good people. I would highly recommend this for a couple, family, friends, or groups to stay at, it is a wonderful place.

MY DAUGHTER'S WEDDING

My daughter's wedding
  • 5 out of 5
Just returned from a fabulous weekend with our family for my daughter's wedding. Steve and Joy could not be more hospitable and wonderful to all of us. The house was large enough for 18 of us but Mother Nature was kind and we were able to be outside on the decks most of the time. This is a great place to be when your family loves the outdoors and can do a bit of hiking and fishing! We will never forget this glorious weekend!

INCREDIBLE WEEKEND AT MEMORY MOUNTAIN!

  • 5 out of 5
I brought a group of 18 for a relaxing weekend in the mountains and it was amazing! Steve couldn't have been a better host. My friends and I drove up a couple months before just to check the place out and Steve made room in his schedule just to show us the property while we rode around in his truck. He explained everything concisely and made sure we were prepared for our weekend retreat. He even took us into his home to meet his wife and to learn more about themselves! While on the trip he made sure everything was taken care of and that we were well situated. The house was just beautiful, and the property was perfect for what we wanted. There were ponds for us to fish in, trails to hike, and wonderful mountain views. Even with 18 people there was plenty of room for us all. You might think that with that many people it would be cramped and that cooking would be difficult, but there was plenty of space and more than enough room to cook for all of us. The hot tub was also a popular spot outside. At first we couldn't figure out how to work it, but I shot Steve a quick text and he explained it very easily. Overall our stay couldn't have been any better. I look forward to more trips up to Memory Mountain and absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for a nice mountain retreat! Thanks for being so great Steve!
