About Steve powell

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

Why Steve powell chose Wolf Laurel

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.

What makes this lodge unique

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.

Amazing cabin and owners

  • 5 of 5

Cuando reservamos estas vacaciones, definitivamente no podíamos imaginar la experiencia tan maravillosa que estabamos a punto de vivir, nos encontramos con una hermosa cabaña y unos increibles propietarios, que crearon todas las condiciones para que fueramos felices y estuviéramos cómodos en su cabina, Steve y Joy ,su esposa estuvieron siempre allí para nosotros en caso de que necesitáramos algo y también para proporcionarnos la información que necesitaramos sobre la zona. Steve tuvo mucha voluntad para darnos un paseo por la montaña en su motor 4x4 , el cual disfrutamos muchísimo. No había nieve en el momento en que fuimos, pero no fue un impedimento para que pudieramos disfrutar de las bonitas vistas de la Montaña Mars Hill. Disfrutamos también de la compañía de su perro lobo, una hermosura de perro y sobre todo muy amigable. Eramos 10 personas y todos quedamos mas que encantados, Gracias por todo

When we first booked this vacation we definitively could not imagine how amazing this experience was going to be, we found a beautiful cabin and such a great owners that created all the conditions for us to be happy and comfortable in their cabin, Steve and Joy were always there for us in case we need something and they also will provide any information that you need about the area. Steve had much willingness to give us a ride in his four wheel in wish we had a lot of fun. There were no snow at the time that we went but it wasn't an impediment for us to enjoy the nice views of the Mars Hill Mountain. I don't Want to forgot to mención about Lobo, their friendly and Beautiful dog. Thanks for everything

Great Cabin, Beautiful location and Awesome Owners!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to spend the weekend in this cabin with friends. We had a great relaxing time. They had just gotten 12 inches of snow prior to our arrival so that was beautiful to see on the mountain. It was so peaceful. The younger ones in the group skied and us older folks watched but a few of us did venture out on the 4 wheeler for site seeing. That was a 1st for me but really enjoyed it!! Thanks Steve!! Steve was always making sure everything was ok and if we needed anything - he and Joy want it to be perfect!! We plan to return and enjoy the warmer season also. It is a blessing to let Steve share his vision. Make plans to visit soon and if not in this cabin you will enjoy staying in any of the cabins on Memory Mountain. Thanks Steve and Joy for letting the Lord lead you! Love you guys!!

Beautiful cabin and location

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Joy, the owners, make you feel as part of their family. They are always there if you need anything. Steve always asked if there was anything else they could provide to make out stay more enjoyable. The cabin was decorated with antiques and old items throughout. We recommend these properties to anyone who want a getaway weekend wedding parties or a week long vacation.

WONDERFUL HOME!! AWESOME OWNER!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky to find this perfect spot for our family of 10 adults and 4 children to get together for a very special birthday celebration. Steve, the owner, met us when we first arrived and was so accommodating and helpful. The location was right off the interstate so very easy to find. It was also so close to a great ski resort and tubing hill, which both proved to be super fun for the whole family. The home was equipped with plenty of supplies and space for a large group all at a very affordable price. We will continue to seek out an opportunity to use this place again.

Amazing Cabin for Larger Groups

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 14 of my closest friends piled into this amazing cabin. The owner was attentive and helped us out in any way he could. He made an extra queen bed and had it installed the next day to everyone's surprise. The kitchen had lots of space, which made getting meals prepped much easier than previous cabins my group has rented. The cabin was easy to find and just off the interstate. We have this as an annual trip and have been moving around for several years. We plan to use this place again in the

Owner's Response: We are making log beds for all the cabins. These are made out of old wormy chestnut logs reclaimed from barns. The response has been amazing. Here at Memory Mountain we are going back to the old ways root cellars, making our on furniture, canning and farming. We are glad you came here and look forward to your next visit.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

The owner went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed for our group of 15! Everyone had a comfortable place to sleep, and we had a fantastic time staying here. The best part was the owner was nearby on Saturday and let us play with his rescued wolf Lobo! He was so fun and friendly, I'll never forget it!
