About John & Kimberley

I am an Incredibly Blessed Wife of an Amazing Husband and Mother of three Awesome Boys!

John & Kimberley purchased this house in 2014

Why John & Kimberley chose Black Mountain

This cabin has been the fulfillment of a family dream that started years ago. As soon as you step into the front door you will recognize the love we have for our cabin and the surrounding area. We designed our log home with many unique design ideas to make it feel warm, bright, open and inviting, and especially well suited for hosting those special 'whole family' events.

Some of the superlatives of the home include the massive outdoor covered porch complete with huge stone fireplace. The fireplace itself is almost 8 feet wide and is designed to burn logs up to 4 feet long . Moreover, we have provided 8 'Amish Bent Hickory Rocking Chairs' to fully enjoy this outdoor living area.

The home is designed with very high ceilings and lots of glass to allow plenty of natural mountain light to enter each room.

To further compliment the rustic beauty of the home, it is furnished with high end furniture. Many of them antiques of over 150 years old! Plus many original paintings by local artists. It has a very entertaining turn of the century player piano complete with over 120 song rolls, including most all the popular Christmas tunes.

The log cabin is easily accessed by any car year around via an excellent road. And only a couple miles off I 40. The Biltmore House is only a short and easy 15 minute drive away.

The hot tube sits on the expansive rear porch, immediately adjacent to the Master Suit and can be accessed directly from the Master bedroom.

What makes this house unique

Our cabin is located immediately adjacent to Camp Rockmont for Boys. The home has all the latest and most innovative technology. Including 'lightning fast' high speed internet with whole house and porch WiFi, Huge smart TVs with surround sound in living room. The smart TV's are complete with Netflix and Hulu, Satellite, Wii' Gaming system with flat screen, deluxe 7 person Hot Tub, and an expansive outdoor covered porch w/ massive wood burning stone fireplace (perfect for entertaining or intimate evenings with loved ones)!

Every room in our cabin was designed to allow beautiful 'Mountain Light ' to gently filter throughout the home, giving it a bright and airy feel.

Our favorite feature of the home is the Grand Covered porch with it's massive wood burning fireplace.

The home is stocked with board games and a Wii with multiple Wii games for the kids.

There is a 7 person hot tube on the rear deck immediately beside the Master Bed Room. The rear deck and hot tub both afford beautiful mountain views!

Our cabin is very private.

Located very close to excellent hiking.

The front porch with it's Amish made porch swing is the perfect place to sit and enjoy the cool mountain breezes rolling down the mountain. Plus it is a wonderful place to relax with a warm cup of coffee and look for the wildlife that frequent the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I will always remember the joy we shared at the Lincoln Log Palace in Black Mountain. We have spent vacations in many different places through the years but this cabin was by far the loveliest and most comfortable we have found.

Coffee on the porch in the early morning. Birds chirping, mist in the treetops. This cabin is heaven for a South Floridian such as myself.

In the evenings we built fires in the large fireplace on the porch. My son played guitar while we sang and roasted smores over the fire.

The cabin, Surrounded by only the mountains and trees with the stars glittering above us, led to a very cherished intimate time with my family that we all will not soon forget!

Great get away

  • 5 of 5

Group of guys got together for a weekend getaway and this was the perfect place. The pool table, ping pong table, and fire place made it so great, we cancelled our plans to visit Asheville one day and stayed "home" and hung out. Its spacious, clean, private, and the only thing you can hear at night are crickets.

Space for the entire family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 boys, in laws, and our lab just enjoyed a wonderful week at this Home. It is a 20 min easy drive into Asheville and about 10 mins from the quaint town of Black Mountain. We hiked off the Blue Ridge Parkway, visited Biltmore, rafted with NOC on the French Broad River and visited the towns of Marshall and Hot Springs as well as a few local breweries. All of this was within an hours drive of this home.

The gathering rooms of this home are large and we appreciated the bunk room in the loft as this is where most of the kids slept.

We played pool and ping pong each night as we enjoy a yearly family pool tournament while on vacation.

This home is up on the mountain side, but we did not have difficulty with navigating the roadway.

The owners are very receptive and quick to respond. We did have a leaking toilet during our stay that was fixed the same day.

Thanks again for a wonderful weeks stay at your place. I hope we are able to return in the fall to enjoy that amazing outdoor fireplace!

Beautiful log cabin in the mountains! Great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Our family visited for a week and we couldn’t have been happier with the accommodations. Time spent on the patio in front of the fireplace will provide memories for a long time. We look forward to returning in the future.

Everything you could possibly want!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home in the mountains has every amenity you could ask for--it's spacious and well appointed (my daughter especially loved the hot tub, and my husband and son were partial to the pool table). There's plenty of room to spread out, yet plenty of gathering spaces are scattered throughout the property. The owner was a gracious communicator and was eager to address any issues which might arise. The four bedrooms (one was a bunk room which could sleep 6 easily) allowed each of us to have our private space and bathrooms. What a wonderful mountain getaway!

Great Remote Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Nicely appointed log cabin in a remote, yet easy to get to location, just outside of Asheville, NC. Had a great time with family during Easter week and especially enjoyed the outdoor fireplace/patio area which we used constantly while at the cabin. Would definitely recommend, and owners John and Kimberley were responsive and a pleasure to deal with.

Beautiful cabin in a lovely serene setting

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit tremendously. We had a multi-generation family gathering with kids, parents, grandparents, and two dogs. The cabin is beautiful, comfortable, and furnished with everything you need. We really enjoyed the pool table, ping pong table, and especially the large fireplace on the patio. The nearest town, Black Mountain, has plenty of dining and shopping, and if you want more options, Asheville is not too far away. Also just a short drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway which was fun to explore. Would definitely recommend staying here!
