Beautiful Property, Perfectly Suited for Large Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most beautiful homes we've stayed in and was perfect for my extended family (three generations) to come together for Easter weekend. Everything in the house was perfect for our visit. The kitchen was fully loaded with every possible appliance, gadget or pot we could need. Would love to come back.

Gorgeous Location, Beautiful Spacious Home, Truly a Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and a group of our friends were travelling to North Carolina to attend a wedding and rented the Burns Tree Top Lodge. We were pleasantly surprised when the beauty of the area and the home itself surpassed our already high expectations. Wade provided a warm welcome when we arrived, giving us a quick tour and answering our questions and then we quickly made ourselves at home.

Wade and Susie were fantastic! They were very helpful and easy to contact if we needed anything. They had lots of interesting stories and history to share, which we thoroughly enjoyed.

The house was clean, beautifully furnished and fully equipped with everything we could possibly need during our stay. I especially loved the huge dining table, which was long enough to accommodate our group of 13 adults.

Based on recommendations from Susie, our group walked to Lake Susan and the 10,000 Villages and Montreat Gift Shops. We visited the Biltmore Estate ands Chihuly

Exhibit - Amazing!! We also spent an afternoon exploring downtown Black Mountain. What a hidden treasure! They have a quaint downtown area, with lots of unique shops, pubs and eateries.

We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Burns Tree Top Lodge. Gorgeous Location, Beautiful Spacious Home, Truly a Home Away from Home. I hope to visit again.

Magnificent home, furnishing, fittings and owners -- we could not have asked for a better vacation r

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 16 old college friends, who have been vacationing together for 24 years. Our children have grown up together and the yearly group vacation has been an important part of our lives. I am a fellow vacation rental owner and pride myself on providing a comfortable, well-furnished rental, but I have much to learn from Susie and Wade. I have NEVER stayed in such a well fitted and beautiful home! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this experience at the Burns Treetop Lodge. The design and layout of the home was exquisite and fit our group of 16 so well with 8 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. The quality of the construction was a spectacular engineering/architectural wonder as the house was built on the side of mountain. Not one caulk seam was visible in the ceiling, crown molding, or shoe molding. There seemed to be absolutely no settling of this large home perched on the mountain. The kitchen was one of my dreams! We had many foodies in our group and part of our socializing was cooking together. We never wanted for any item! Every cooking tool was available including many serving dishes, baskets – even décor for the table. Beds were super comfortable with top drawer linens, and the views from every window were awe inspiring. I loved watching birds swoop down below my bedroom window. The dining table easily sat all of us for dinner and the arrangement of the screened in porch to kitchen to dining and living room areas allowed all of us to spend quality time together, but also offered break off areas for smaller groups. We could not have asked for anything better for our week together in Montreat! Many thanks to the Burns family.

Beautiful home built for fun and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We chose the Burns Treetop Lodge for this year’s reunion spot with our college friends. We are a group of seven couples who have gathered together for 33 years! The architecture, design details and art in the home are SO nice; as others have said there is a lot of interesting history in the house; there was plenty of room for us to be very comfortable; the kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and all that you would ever need; the hosts are super friendly and accommodating but not intrusive in any way... I could keep going but let me just say we had a lovely time and were MORE than pleased with our stay. This beautiful area is conveniently located near so many things to see and do. Highly recommend!

Clean and beautiful

  • 4 of 5

The house is one of the cleanest rentals I've stayed in. The downsides were: we had a 4 year old and we were constantly making sure he wasn't going to break anything as well as many of the bedrooms didn't have blinds. This made it an awesome view of the mountains, but again not great for the little guy.

Beds are amazing, flexibility of Susie and Wade was great.

Overall we'd certainly stay here again and again, just without the kids next time.

Owner's Response: Wonderful Guests with a thoughtful and helpful review. It still has us thinking. We look forward to their possible return. We enjoy sharing our home and the furnishings with guests and their families. We also enjoy the time with our family and friends when we don't have guests. Six of the eight bedrooms have window shades or blinds for privacy and late sleeping (some improvement possible). But we struggle with covering the windows and architectural details in 2 special bedrooms. These were designed to experience waking up in the treetops far above civilization below. There is a wonderful later morning light as the sun slowly climbs behind the mountains until it finally crests dappling light thru the treetops outside. We will keep thinking about these ideas. Thank you.

Major metropolitan amenities and services are found in Asheville. Downtown Asheville is 19 miles from our home. Asheville is one of Americas most popular vacation destinations for Arts, Music , Custom Breweries , and home of The Biltmore Estate,

Black Mountain is 2 miles from our home. Filled with dozens of local restaurants with great food , incredible shopping , and weekly tailgate markets in the summer, fall seasons.

Montreat was established 115 years ago as a church retreat with wooden platforms covered with tents for housing and soon became a Presbyterian Conference Center. Many of the houses originally had no heat and were only for seasonal occupancy. Today it remains an intimate community with over one half of the 500 homes only occasionally occupied in the off season.

The landmass of the Montreat community, as a whole, has 4,000 acres of property. The conference center permanently protected 2,500 acres of this, which is now a dedicated wilderness area registered in the NC Registry of National Heritage Areas, resulting in more than 40 miles of hiking trails.

Montreat is in a mountain cove surrounded on 3 and 1/2 sides by 175,000 acres of protected forests including the eastern area of the Pisgah National Forest. Montreat has year round playgrounds w/ streams running through them, a small lake, fishing and unlimited hiking opportunities.

For more information about Montreat and the conference center ammenities feel free to go to
