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 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!

Wonderful Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time with our family in your lovely home.

The evenings were spent outside gathered around the fireplace with blankets, roasting marshmallows for s'mores or staying warm in the hot tub. The bedrooms were graciously appointed, and the beds were the most comfortable beds we'd slept on at a vacation home.

We hope to visit again!

We enjoyed our stay so much. Your home was extremely accommodating to all of our needs! The table was perfect for family meals inside and out. The seating and convenience of the fireplace on the porch was perfect for enjoying time together and the kitchen was adequately stocked with proper cooking tools! We were excited that there was a Keurig (perfect for our 1 cup a morning!) The beds were comfortable and the Gernerts were available when we had questions about the area etc. Our stay was wonderful. There are so many things to do close by and the kids took advantage of hiking and touring some, however we were there to mostly rest and enjoy each other. When we returned home we were truly rested, rejuvenated and relaxed. Thank you for an amazing vacation.
