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.

Great place, great people!

  • 5 out of 5
This is such a beautiful place. We were there for our wedding weekend. It was everything we could have imagined and more. The owners, Steve and Joy, are the nicest people you'll ever meet. Steve worked tirelessly shuttling people up and down the mountain for us. The cabin was perfect for us and the chapel could not have worked out any better. We got exactly what we wanted - an intimate winter wedding in the snow. Thank you Steve and Joy!

Perfect Wedding Location

  • 5 out of 5
This was exactly what we wanted. We had a small wedding with closest friends and family and this worked well for us. We used the chapel on the property and the reception at the cabin. Steve and Joy were helpful and all adminities listed were provided. The short drive to Asheville made it easy to get additional supplies, easy for family to find, and close enough for fun outings. Steve and Joy also have a lot of resources and will either provide the service for a reasonable fee or point you in the right direction. Just ask!

Winter Wonderland Wedding (November 1)

  • 5 out of 5
I do not know where to begin writing this review! My new husband and I are sitting here thinking about all of the positive things we can say about our weekend at Memory Mountain. We had the pleasure of visiting with Steve in March to see the property for the first time as a possible venue for our November wedding. We immediately fell in love with the entire mountain. We were able to come back in the summer to visit once more before our wedding date. Each time we met with Steve, he was amazing and made each experience worth the drive. Finally, our wedding weekend arrived and we were able to come to Wolf Laurel to begin our wedding weekend. After planning for months for a Fall inspired wedding, we were shocked (to say the least) to find out about the 100% chance of snow on our wedding day. We immediately had to change everything we had planned for! Steve was amazing in helping change and move things around.
Waterfall cabin was immaculate and quickly became the home for our Wedding Reception. The open floor plan was perfect for the tables and dance floor! This cabin has so much space on each floor to accommodate the amount of people staying in the cabin and for the people that came for the wedding. The pictures for the listing do not begin to showcase the beauty of this wonderful place. The furniture, amenities, and cabin itself are beyond what we expected. We couldn't have asked for a better backdrop for our Reception. This cabin is lovely and deserves all of the praise it has gotten before this review!
My husband and I recommend this property for anyone seeking a beautiful home away from home to spend the weekend. It is perfect for a Romantic Getaway, or a Family gathering. So many positives to say about this cabin!

Owner's Response: I want anyone reading this review to know that the people that come to Memory Mountain work with me and my wife to have a great wedding. This couple get a 5 star rating because it snow 10 inches of snow. This family worked hard and guess what it was perfect. Me and my wife work hard everyday but the key is what I tell all potential wedding parties Ido not want to be a vendor and I do not want anyone to be my customer. I want a partnership to build the wedding of your dream. We are doing that and have just about booked all of 2015. This family deserves a lot of praise for their part of our partnership. Thanks folks

Gorgeous location! Exceptional owners!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in this cabin the week of our wedding! We can't say enough wonderful things about it. The kids enjoyed the pond and waterfall while the adults enjoyed relaxing at night in the hot tub. The owners are incredibly welcoming and hospitable!!! We will be back for years to come:)

Most Memorable Weekend of Our Lives!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife, Sarah, and I had our small and intimate wedding ceremony with our close friends and family (a group of 15) at the Waterfall Cabin and we'll remember it for the rest of our lives. We stayed at the cabin for 3 nights. Steve and Joy are the best hosts and the nicest people. Everything was perfect and the location was magical. Our friends had joined us from South Carolina, Florida, Oklahoma, Texas, New York and Canada and they all had a blast. We had lunch at the Stoney Knob Cafe in Weaverville the day of our ceremony as recommended by Steve (he was kind enough to make the reservation for us as well) which was a cherry on top. The food was amazing and the service was great. We drove to downtown Asheville, which is almost a 30 min drive, a couple of times the rest of the weekend to eat good food and to sightsee. We will never forget this weekend!

Owner's Response: Memory Mountain is in western North Carolina. Our place is within 3 miles of interstate I 26. Closes enough to Asheville yet private. A lot of families come here and never leave. Number 4 rated Zip line 16 mile away. White water rafting everywhere. Skiing is just up the hill. Everyone talks about coming to the mountains for vacation, weddings, reunions, church retreats or to just have peace and quiet. Memory Mountain is the place to come. Fishing, chapel, The Farm, hiking, berry picking, gather eggs, sitting and doing nothing. Thanks to our friends from Clemson University for coming to get married here at this special place. Now stop putting it off and book with us we are filling up for falls leaf season and ski season is already booking.

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!
