Description

Relax and unwind at this beautiful, secluded getaway. Black Mountain Log Cabin offers stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains from inside the home, out on the wrap-around deck, and while in the 6-seater hot tub. Located in Creston, a private gated community with an emphasis on natural preservation, enjoy the beauty of the area and clear skies at night. Enjoy your cruise through the community, on the paved roads, and bask in the beauty of the area before arriving at the delightful log cabin.

Walk down from the parking pad, along a tree lined and steady gravel steps to the charming log bridge connecting to the house. The wraparound porch has great rocking chairs staged at various views around the home. Take in the best vista on the back corner of the home where the trees frame the Blue Ridge Mountains as you sip your morning coffee or an evening cocktail. Down below is a cozy deck with hot-tub and fire table lit by tiki torches and fairy lights. At night, observe the constellations from the hot-tub, or a blanket in the yard, thanks to the dark sky community restrictions in place.

Featuring cathedral ceilings, hardwood floors, and an intimate living space with gas logs this cabin invites you into a setting of casual luxury. The galley kitchen has the essentials you need to create a delicious dining experience - a gas range, drip coffee maker, and basic cookware. Curl up in either living space with a bowl of popcorn and watch the game or stream a movie on the Smart TVs with a cable package that includes the NFL channel and the SEC Network.

Spend a weekend evening at the Straightaway Cafe, a classic pub-style eatery on the lone straightaway of the notoriously curvy NC-9. With a rotating menu, Straightaway keeps things fresh and local in both the food, beer, and entertainment. In the morning, battle for brunch at either Blue Ridge Biscuit Company in Black Mountain, 25 minutes away, or Biscuit Head in Asheville, 40 minutes from the home. Both establishments specialize in giant “cat head” biscuits piled high with delightful toppings and are sure to delight.

House Layout:
Main Level- bedroom with king, living space with TV and gas logs, kitchen and dining area, full hall bath with rain shower, wrap-around deck access.
Second Level- bedroom with queen and ensuite bathroom with tub, small writing nook.
Basement- den with electric fireplace and TV, bedroom with queen and ensuite bath, washer and dryer, pack-n-play in closet, access to lower deck with hot tub and firepit.

FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Black Mountain Log Cabin is located in Black Mountain in a private gated community named Creston. We highly recommend planning your arrival during daylight hours, as this community may be difficult to navigate in the dark. This home is approximately 25 minutes to downtown Black Mountain and 45 minutes to Asheville. Click on the location tab above to locate this house on a map.

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY?

If you need to cancel your reservation and the property you had reserved re-rents for the time which you had it reserved, you will be refunded all money you had paid minus an $89 cancellation fee. If you cancel and the property does not re-rent for your reserved dates, you will lose all money you have paid to that point. For this reason, we recommend that you purchase trip insurance. Please call 888-228-8008 before making a reservation if you have questions or concerns.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY AND FEE?

Black Mountain Log Cabin is not “pet friendly”. Please be respectful of those owners who, because of allergies or other personal reasons, have chosen not to allow any pets. If housekeeping notes that a pet was present on a non-pet friendly property during your visit, you will be charged a minimum of $600 to clean carpets, upholstered furniture and complete air purification measures. Bringing a pet to a house that is not pet-friendly without owner consent or permission from Greybeard is grounds for termination of the rental agreement without refund. If you must travel with your pet, please contact us for local boarding recommendations. More info about service animals and the ADA is available here.

WHAT ARE CHECK-IN/CHECK OUT TIMES?

Check-in time is 4pm and check out time is 10am. It is important that we adhere to these times, because there is a chance that someone else will be checking out/in before or after you and we need sufficient time to ready the house for the next renter. If you wish to check-in early, there is a $50 early check-in fee that can be added on to your reservation. Early check-in is only available if someone is not checking out on the morning of your arrival.

WHERE DO WE CHECK-IN/PICK UP KEYS?

Black Mountain Log Cabin has a keyless entry system. You will receive a unique access code within 3 days of your arrival, allowing you to go straight to the house and check-in starting at 4pm. 

WHAT IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY DURING OUR STAY?

If you are having a medical emergency, dial 911 from the phone in your rental home or cell phone.

We hope that your stay in the area will be relaxing and without incident, but should you need to get in touch with Greybeard, we have someone on call 24 hours a day. Just call our office at 828-669-1072 and dial extension 203, which will forward to the cell phone of the person on call. Please do not hesitate to call us if something needs immediate attention, but if your question or concern can wait, we ask that you call the office during normal office hours.

WHEN IS THE SECURITY DEPOSIT REFUNDED?

Security deposits are returned within 30 days of guest departure.

WHEN ARE HOMES WITH GAS LOGS IN OPERATION?

Gas logs are not in operation May through September due to the warmer summer months. 

Absolutely NO fires are permitted outside unless the property is fitted with a fire ring/fire pit. You cannot bring your own portable fire pit. 

IS WIFI SERVICE INCLUDED WITH MY RENTAL RESERVATION? WILL I HAVE CELL PHONE SERVICE AT MY RENTAL?

Wifi is available at Black Mountain Log Cabin. Please note that Greybeard Rentals does not guarantee internet connectivity or speed. Each individual homeowner contracts directly with an internet service provider, and due to a variety of reasons, Greybeard does not guarantee service. Our Black Mountain and Asheville offices have wifi service available if needed.

Cell phone service is not guaranteed. You may check with your service provider to see if service is available.

Our stay was very relaxing. The Mountain View’s were amazing and enjoyed the peacefulness of not being around the everyday hustle and bustle of life. The roads for sure take some getting use to it’s like being on a roller coaster. We also experienced rain snow fog and sun all in one day which I can say I have never experienced before. Overall it was a wonderful few days.

This cabin is tucked away on the side of the mountain, completely private and secluded for a tranquil, peaceful getaway! The outdoor view is breathtaking. The interior of the cabin is gorgeous, relaxing, and cozy! We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The short 20 min. drive to Black Mountain was scenic, twisty and a real adventure. Black Mountain is a nice little town with amazing local bistros that were amazing! <br/>The only request we would have would be to have a blind on the main level bathroom window. Even though the cabin is secluded, it would have been a nice touch.

We had a great time. The house was in a good location (beautiful view and secluded) and was just as described. It is a little bit of a drive to everywhere, but not to far that it was annoying. I would absolutely recommend staying her if you are looking for a log cabin in The Ashville/Black Mountain area.

The cabin is located in a well maintained community about 25 minutes from the town. Classic log cabin look with many nice amenities. At end of the road with next cabin almost a quarter mile away so very secluded. Description lists as having 2 bedrooms, but there are actually 3; each with bathroom. Felt very comfortable and relaxed while staying there. Nearby Falls Trail is a challenging hike but worth it.

My husband and I had a wonderful time enjoying our honeymoon. We explored the Biltmore and downtown Asheville, but our favorite part was spending time together in this beautiful, secluded cabin! We will likely rent again with Greybeard in the future, as the customer service and attentiveness were exceptional!!
