Wonderful location with beautiful views!
As the other reviews stated the pictures don't do justice on this house. It was goregous inside and out. We enjoyed spending our Christmas in the mountains. There were a few complaints that we had about the house. One of the things was you could hear everything in the house. Also it was very cold without the fireplace going but it's winter that's to be expected. We did go to town a few times and thought it was nice. Everyone was really nice through town. We are thinking of visiting in the Spring.
We got married on the back deck of the beautiful cabin! The house was great! The view was wonderful! Not once did we want for anything from great mug for our morning coffee on the deck to plenty of soft towels. Couldn't have asked for better and plan to spend an anniversary or 10 here!
Wow, that is so wonderful! Thanks for sharing your photo. Congratulations and glad you enjoyed the house!!

Rental is much nicer than photos show
The photos for Catawba Roost do not do the house justice. The house is beautiful, the interior tasteful, and the views amazing. We spent one week at the Catawba Roost and loved every minute of it. We had planned spending the days touring the general area, but we enjoyed the house, the deck and the unobstructed views so much, that most days we just stayed "home." The house library was pretty good with some interesting books keeping us entertained (never did figure out how to play Dvds).
The Catawba Roost is the perfect combination of being remote in the mountains, with no other houses in sight and lots of bird song; but at the same time an easy drive to town that does not require navigating steep hills.
We will definitely stay at the Catawba Roost next time we visit Black Mountain.
rental staff was excellent the house was great everything you needed we came there on motorcycles and we would rent this again if we were coming to the area
Exceeded our expectations!
Our stay at Catawba Roost was simply wonderful. Everything about it was great---the amenities, the view, and the proximity to nearby attractions. I hope to come back time and again.
Clean, nice, very comfortable. Quiet peaceful location, beautiful views
Fantastic Mountain Get-Away
We stayed at Catawba Roost for a long weekend escape from the heat of the SC coast. Catawba Roost was the perfect place to feel tucked away in the mountains but still close to town and plenty of activities.
The huge back porch was awesome and the large living room and kitchen were perfect for us all to gather comfortably and enjoy the time together.
Would highly recommend to others and would not hesitate to return again in the future.
Catawba Roost is probably the best vacation home we have ever rented. The setting is beautiful and the home is new and well maintained. We saw two bears and wild turkeys within two blocks of the home. Renda at Greybeard Realty was outstanding in pairing us with what we needed and we were so fortunate to have had her advice.
Great secluded spot perfect for geting away
What a fantastic house, nestled in the mountains, with amazing views and very few people around. The house is well built and maintained, with lots of deck space for enjoying the mountain breezes. I particularly appreciated that portions of the deck were covered/screened in, which even allowed us to sit ourside during the one day we had rain. I will definitely be renting this wonderful house again.
Right off the bat, this house was perfect for my group: one couple was from atlanta, one from Chattanooga, and we were from the Triangle, all places which are within 3-4 hours from Black Mountain.
I came with my girlfriend and two other couples for a mid-week retreat and was absolutely amazed. Catawba Roost is fantastic, and was just the right size for the six of us. The house is beautiful and the open floor plan really adds to the experience of being in the mountains. The kitchen was very well appointed which made cooking a breeze. Every amenity we needed was there, including a washer/dryer, 3G based internet, and plenty of hot water. Firewood was provided and we kept the fireplace roaring for nearly the duration of our trip. The fireplace get very warm and can heat the whole house. With both screened and open porches, the views were relaxing and just what we were looking for.
My favorite part, by far, was the hiking. About 3 miles from the house is a trail head for Catawba Falls. There is also a trail which skirts Pisgah National Forest which we didn't entirely explore, but seemed to go on for quite a while. The trail to the upper falls was pretty easy for the most part, but some scrambling and a little climbing was required. Most of this was due to the fact that there was snow and ice on several parts of the trail. We saw a recent set of bear tracks, so be careful if you go hiking. It's not for the inexperienced, but is a great moderate-difficulty hike for those with experience. Getting to the lower falls is another matter. That hike was strenuous. Even though it is mostly down hill, there were lots of frozen spots and ice along the way, as well as rocks. One section has a rope installed so that you can make it up and down the rocks. It was definitely a moderate to difficult hike, mainly due to the ice and snow. All the hiking was worth it, though, as the falls are gorgeous.
We'll definitely be back.
Beautiful log cabin
We were really pleased with our stay at this cabin. It is a beautiful log cabin, very rustique but yet very modern. When the weather is nice the view from the large deck is gorgeous. The house was very well equipped especially the kitchen. If we get the chance we would definetely rent this cabin again.
A totally amazing property!
We absolutely cannot wait to go back! The cabin was awesome, the view was incredible, the peacefulness was amazing! We would wholeheartedly recommend this vacation destination and this property!
Great Vacation Home
WE had an unbelievable time, great weather on Saturday not so much on the Sunday, Lovely area,the home is beautiful and would love to come back again some day. MAster Suite perfect and we cant really can 1 bad thing about this place,
Wonderful house & location
The Catawba Roost was a great house. It's larger than it appears in the photos. Kitchen was well stocked for cooking meals. The house also has a very nice view from the deck & bedroom windows. Greybeard Realty was good to work with & supplied very accurate directions to the house.
Our vacation at Catawba Roost was very relaxing, just as we had hoped it would be. The wood burning fireplace was fabulous, and our husbands loved keeping it going the entire time. The cabin was overall quite clean but there was a good bit of white dog hair everywhere. We had babies crawling around so this was a little gross. The boys would also have loved more prechopped wood as they did a good bit of wood chopping themselves but had fun doing it anyway. Thanks for a great vacation and we would consider returning.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Catawba Roost! The house is amazing and had every amenity one could hope for. It was very homey and quaint! Dealing with Greybeard Realty was superb. They were very helpful and efficient. Such a great experience and we can't wait to come back!
A Wonderful Week
I had wonderful experience booking through Greybeard Realty. They are very helpful, informative and communicate very well with their clients. Catawba Roost is the perfect get away for a family. It is in the middle of the mountains w/ great scenery all around. Very peaceful. While it appears "cabin-ish" it is very modern inside w/ appliances and such. The master bath is very nice. The location is great. Minutes from Black Mountain and about 20-30 from Asheville or Biltmore Estate. We enjoyed all of Black Mountain, Asheville and the Biltmore. We also took a day trip over to Chimmney Rock which was a lot of fun. I just wished we had a couple more days at Catawba Roost to really enjoy relaxing in this beautiful and comfortable house.
fall vacation in the mountains
Catawba roost was a nice change from the Florida heat. The cabin is very well equipped and roomy. I loved working in the large kitchen, it had everything one would need to make a great meal. The cabin is in a quiet area, nice to just sit back and enjoy the fresh air..
We hiked the Catawba Falls twice and did other hiking in the area.The cabin in within driving distance to many area attractions. I loved the jetted tub in the master bath after a long day of hiking. The Cabin was very pet friendly, Toby and Maggie loved the front porch. (a nice place for the pooches to sun bathe). All in all it was a nice place to visit, We will be back again..
Can't wait to come back!
This was a beautiful home, kept in such great shape. It was like walking into a new home. Everything was clean and directions for everything was all laid out for you. The best was the back porches to sit on and just enjoy the view of seeing way out. You can't see anything looking down, but enjoy just looking out. So nice and quite and breath taking. We enjoyed going to all the sites around, and even driving to the lil further ones. Black mountain has the sweetest people. Not much for teenagers but plenty for mom dad and grandparents. The only thing i didn't like about the cabin is the drive way. once you pull in forward its very hard to back up if there is more than one car in the drive-way. But other wise can't complain about one thing. So thank you Greybeard Ralty.
Places usually aren't what they seem when you rent online....but this place was so much better than we expected. It's big, roomy, comfortable and the kitchen was so well stocked. We could easily spend a week here. Great experience.
This is a beautiful home - clean, fully equipped kitchen etc., and great view of the mountains. The area is peaceful and quiet, yet only about 7 miles from the town of Black Mountain. Great hiking trails are in nearby Montreat. I would highly recommend staying here.
Beautiful house and setting. Good location for peace and quiet. Super grocery store (10 mi.) to stock up on supplies. Greybeard staff just great.
Spacious and well equipped
This was a wonderful house for our group of 2 couples and it could easily
accommodate 3 couples. The kitchen was well equipped. We liked the fact that
the house was not filled with "stuff" like bric-a-brac. The furniture was very
comfortable. The porch was wonderful. The area is very quiet with very few
houses. We loved our rainy day hike to Catawba Falls (apparently only
accessible within this development.)
The pumpkin bread, a perk from Greybeard Realty, was delicious. A nice touch.
Be sure and get the code for the locked box so you can access the garage. We
would definitely come back if in the area.
Very nice home to get away from it all.....quiet area and road.
New home with lots of space located in a quiet area of Black Mountain. Huge deck and nice screened in porch. We did have a problem with hornets while there, so the screened in porch was perfect.
A nice, quiet and relaxing stay
The cabin is very spacious, clean and fully equipped. It is located at the end of
a 100yd driveway with no other houses (currently). This makes the located
extremely quiet and peaceful.
