Why Steve powell chose Asheville Area

We experience 4 seasons that offer an array of activities all year round. Guest will be in close proximity to skiing, golfing, rafting, tubing, zip-lines, National Forest, orchards, horseback riding, The Biltmore Estate, Western NC Nature Center, Dollywood, Gray Fossil Museum, Christmas tree farms, natural hot springs, gem mining as well as every luxury a city offers; shopping, dining, theaters. The lodges are well planned to allow privacy and safety. There is plenty of driveway parking and there are no steep drops or stilts like most mountain cabins.

What makes this lodge unique

The owners, Steve and Joy Powell, live on Memory Mountain and offer tours of their farm to interested guest, however appointments must be made in advance. Their farm features rabbits, range chickens, pheasants, quail, egg gathering, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, apple/peach/pear trees. Their Antique Museum has the largest arrowhead collection in the Southeast. You may view depression glass, farm equipment and neat historical mountain finds. Arrowhead hunts may also be coordinated with your scheduled visit.

The lodges 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.

a great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Waterfall has a very nice open layout. We had 15+ people stay comfortably. The porch outlooks a beautiful waterfall and pond; you can go fishing in it! Great views and great place to spend some quality family/friend time :)

Perfect Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented Waterfall as part of our wedding weekend and the bride's family stayed here. It was honestly my favorite of the three we rented because it had a loft area for the younger kids to sleep in. They got a kick our of having their own "secret" room. We also really liked that this cabin had bathrooms in the hallways versus just in bedrooms. Again I have to mention how awesome Steve and his family were. They made sure our event went off perfectly and are such a lovely family, I couldn't have dreamed a better location or family to help make our wedding weekend perfect.

Unbelievable piece of land and homes - even more impressive ownership

  • 5 of 5

Myself and (9) other gentlemen from PA rented the Waterfall Lodge last weekend and had an incredible time. Steve, the owner, and Lobo, his pet wolf, greeted our party as we arrived and set the tone for the entire trip with their fascinating life stories and background. The house is beautiful and offers more than enough room for a party larger than ours. We traveled a long way to experience the mountains in Asheville, but will most definitely return for the overwhelming hospitality offered by the owners.

Delightful

  • 5 of 5

We HIGHLY recommend staying in one of Steve and Joy's homes. They are huge, beautiful mountain cabins. The hospitality can't be beat. Our kids loved exploring in the woods, meeting Lobo the pet wolf, checking out Steve 's museum, etc.

Steve and Joy's homes created a great opportunity to get away and experience God. We highly recommend their homes for church groups to get away together for a retreat or just a fun time away together.

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

Steve was a gracious host and extremely attentive! He even let our kids play with Lobo, their pet wolf! Accommodations were just what we were looking for-comfy and spacious, with plenty of outdoors to explore! Came up with several family friends for a ski weekend and definitely plan to come back!
