Designed with entertaining in mind, High Top Mountain Lodge features a lower level game room with an air hockey table and a foosball table, plus leather reclining couches to maximize your TV viewing time. Relax in a rocking chair in front of the wood-burning fireplace and catch up with a friend or a good book. The patio just off of the lower level living area proves to be a favorite spot thanks to the hot tub, which sits in a covered area for year-round enjoyment! If you're looking to work remotely, this rental also features a private workspace complete with a desk, chair, WiFi and access to electricity.
The large deck at High Top Mountain Lodge is a prime focal point of the cabin with a row of rocking chairs, two outdoor dining tables, and a covered portion that gives cool shade on hot days. Spend an afternoon grilling out on the sunny front patio and take in the beautiful vistas from the swinging bench. If you're in need of respite, venture up to the mountaintop viewing area where a hammock will reward you with the perfect place for a little downtime.
When it comes to the bed and bath arrangements, everyone in your group can appreciate the floor plan at High Top Mountain Lodge! Five main bedroom suites, all of which feature a king bed and an attached full bath, give each guest the comfort they deserve, especially while on vacation! A owner-on-main suite offers accessibility, and who can resist the bubbling jetted tub in the main bath? A set of bunk beds in each of the lower level suites offers additional sleeping space if needed, a bonus for guests who are traveling with children.
Picturesque in every season, the property has a paved roundabout for easy access and plenty of parking. For a peaceful escape that's still in easy reach of everything, treat your friends and family to a stay at High Top Mountain Lodge!

Amazing property with amazing views.
A beautiful house!!
It was amazing. The pictures did not do the property justice. It was better than we anticipated.
Very nice overall.
"Not a single detail was overlooked - we loved the true cabin feel of living on a mountain. The house was exactly as advertised. With 2 families including 5 teenagers, the house was perfect. 5 Master bedroom suites certainly gave everyone their privacy. Plenty to do; great basement entertainment area with natural wood fireplace; quiet upstairs sitting area with gas fireplace; spacious kitchen table with comfortable seating for 10. Not a single detail overlooked. We definitely hope to be back in the future. We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this property - we would recommend. 5-star cleanliness, furnishings and bedding - kitchen was well stocked."
"It was a fantastic house. Love the location, each bedroom having a master bathroom, the porch, the grounds, the fireplace. It's a fantastic property and we would be happy to stay there again and certainly would recommend it. We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this property - we would recommend. 5-star cleanliness, furnishings and bedding."
Excellent location! So easy to get to shops & restaurants in Black Mountain; plus wonderful Ingles grocery so close. And a beautiful property...great for several couples or big family.
This place is clean and the kitchen is well stocked. It has numerous interior and exterior sitting areas which worked well for our group. Very private with beautiful views. Great house - we would rent again. We all loved it. We loved sitting on the deck in the rocking chairs. Great furniture and sparkling clean.
"House was a gorgeous log cabin. Very spacious, perfect for 2-3 families. Fun game room and plenty of outdoor verandas and patio furniture. Great round dining table with lazy Susan. Lots of windows, fireplace and seating. Comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms. Truly a perfect place to stay. Great location to Asheville. We had a wonderful time and would rent this house again. We highly recommend it."
"Everything was as pictured on the website; overall info was very accurate. Very new house, beautiful wood, very comfortable bed; every bedroom had king bed and en-suite bathroom. Positive experience with Carolina Mornings and rental property - would recommend. 5-star cleanliness and bedding - kitchen well stocked."
"We thoroughly enjoyed our time at High Top Mountain Lodge. We loved the home and floor plan! The floor plan was designed perfectly for our large group of nine. Loved that the bedrooms have king beds and full bathrooms. Each bedroom having its own bathroom was a huge plus! Everyone had their own! Loved the outdoor furniture too! We enjoyed a lot of hiking, paddleboarding, shopping and dining out. We also enjoyed the boat tour at Lake Lure. Thank you for letting us rent this beautiful home for the week. The scenic drives on the Blue Ridge Parkway were really pretty. We were blessed with quality family time! Overall a 5-star experience - we would definitely recommend Carolina Mornings and High Top Mountain Lodge to friends or colleagues!"
Exactly as pictured. We will be coming back next year!
We arrived as the snow was falling!! Our family vacation hopes were to find snow. Some of our crew is from the NC coast so we rarely see it .... however our coastal home also saw a few flakes this weekend. This home is very welcoming! It is the perfect fit for our group.
"You know it's a special place when 20somethings and 60somethings equally have fun. A lovely house and property. We discovered hiking trails in Montreat, and ate at Trailhead 3 times! Our waiter Brad was outstanding. The beds are comfy and the kitchen well stocked. Celebrating a milestone birthday weekend with family is the best and the house played her part beautifully!"
"Our family came to the mountain top for the long weekend celebrating our oldest grandson's 11th birthday, my 65th birthday & retirement. The cabin was perfect for us & we had the best time. We traveled from Ohio & Raleigh NC to be together. Thank you for sharing your home! It's beautiful!!"
Was as advertised!
We absolutely loved our stay! Thank you so much for making our trip easy and special.
Perfect for us with peaceful setting and large suites.
9 co-workers climbing Mount Mitchell and rafting French Broad River in Marshall. enjoyed game room and enough beds for everyone.
"Wow! What a wonderful family reunion in a beautiful home. We really enjoyed our stay - breakfast al fresco, football, hot tub, game time and quality time with our beloved ""senior"" and his family! Many thanks for sharing your piece of paradise with us"
Glorious Vacation Spot! Thank you for a fantastic and comfortable stay. Grateful & have seen 4 bears! Loved every moment here!
Wonderful holiday! I saw a family of black bears today in the clearing. Thanks - until we meet again.
"An absolutely beautiful home and setting. We had 10 adults and everyone was comfortable, each couple having a king size bed and private bath. Sitting on the back balcony every morning for coffee was such a peaceful way to get the day started. All the necessities were available and in place and we all loved the 10 seat circular table in the Dining Room with a Lazy Susan in the middle. It was very conducive to conversation during meals and games. Fabulous getaway. Great job by the staff having everything in place when we arrived making it feel like our home away from home. "
This house is amazing! Well thought out & perfect for our group during our stay in Asheville! We will be back!
"From the Byron High School Key Club! We have loved staying here during our mission trip! It has provided us with a great relaxing place to wind down after a long day of volunteering and a great community space for ""family time."" We love the hot tub and lake Susan! We love the bear here! "
We enjoyed your wonderful home!
"The house was everything we imagined and more! Beautiful views, close to town, amazing rooms. Mark was so friendly and gave us great tips on what to do. We even saw a bear!"
"What a beautiful cabin to share a memorable Easter holiday. The first time siblings, spouses and families were able to reunite in one picturesque place. Thank you for the sweets they were wonderful! Many thanks from all!"
"What a great place for a college reunion! We had great weather and the accommodations were perfect. Super lodging. Everything perfect. Good restaurants Biscuit Company for breakfast. Tako Sushi for dinner. Hope to come back. This was perfect for us 4 couples - 53 yr Reunion. Very comfy, roomy and homey. Enjoyable time together! Reuniting with college friends in the Blue Ridge Mountains has been at a minimum memorable. And to have such comfortable and pleasant accommodations made it extra special. We thoroughly enjoyed Black Mountain restaurants, the Blue Ridge Parkway and the art galleries along the Parkway and in Black Mountain. Nice to see the daffodils poking their heads up."
"The house was clean, planned to accommodate large groups perfectly, and beautifully located. The view was magnificent. Hikes, groceries, restaurants, and shops close by. Asheville 15 to 20 minutes away, and a very easy drive. You can stay here and do it all. We will return with this group and others. "
The cabin was beautiful and perfectly designed to support multiple families traveling together. The wood throughout is amazing! The different seating areas and game areas were perfectly balanced; our group came together in different combinations in the various different areas through our stay. We never felt like we were intruding upon one another's space. Love the huge kitchen table that seated all 10 of us together! Can't say enough about this beautiful cabin!
"A wonderful 30th birthday for Ryan. We stayed in the first night (tried looking for bears) then hit up downtown Asheville for breweries. We had dinner at Curate. It was excellent!!! Thank you for your wonderful home!!! Perfect group mountain getaway This is the PERFECT house for groups! The beds were all big, and the master bed is SUPER cozy, we didn't want to leave. The jetted tub in the bath was a nice plus too! The kitchen has all the utensils you need to cook and the views are stunning! There is both a wood and gas burning fireplace, that we took advantage of plus a great hot tub. The only downside was there is no outdoor firepit, but it would have been too cold anyways. Lots of games to play, plenty of seating and just overall exactly what you want in a log cabin. Warning, the road up is super steep And narrow I was nervous to drive it, but we made it. We definitely plan on staying here again and I cannot thank the owners enough for letting us stay!"
"This is obviously a fairly new home and very nice. We had 11 total, 2 infants, 3 adult couples, 2 teenagers, and another adult single. Everyone had adequate privacy and the common areas were large enough to have the whole group together for social time and meals. We had everything we needed to prepare meals if when we chose to do so. The town of Black Mountain is a gem. Several nice little restaurants, breweries, and coffee shops. There's some shopping for ""those types"", but the easy 25 minute trip to Asheville allows for almost unlimited restaurants, breweries, and shopping (for ""those types""). The final ascent to the lodge on Pearson Dr. is not for the meek, but take your time, slow down for the speed bumps, and you'll be fine. We would return to this area and this property for another vacation in the mountains."
"So thankful to be able to spend Christmas in your beautiful home!! We saw one bear from the basement window. We snowed tubbed at Hawks Nest. Went to Christmas at the Biltmore. Saw the lights at the NC Arboretum, and played games nonstop!! We made so many memories in your home and we are looking forward to coming back!! Many Thanks! "
"High Top Mountain Lodge was perfect for a bunch of 44 yr old girls who are old high school friends! The house and the surrounding property were neat and clean. We loved sitting on the porch, soaking in the hot tub while drinking wine, then warming up by one of the two fireplaces. Our group loves a round table (we always request them in restaurants) so we were thrilled to find one in the kitchen. A few of us went into the close and convenient town of Black Mountain to roam around and have lunch. Clean, convenient, comfortable, and spacious - everything we look for in a vacation home. "
"Our family really enjoyed our stay at High Top Mountain Lodge. We had a few rainy days, but that didn't stop us from enjoying your beautiful home. Thank you! Lasting memories were made. "
"The Dowling clan converged in Hightop Mountain Lodge from North Carolina, Missouri, Illinois, South Dakota, and Washington State for a great Thanksgiving! We had a wonderful stay and will take some beautiful memories with us!"
Christmas at the Biltmore (Check) Beautiful Home (Check) Scenic Views (Check) Looking forward to coming back!
"Germond's siblings and spouses family reunion. The house was a perfect size. We saw a bobcat and turkey's, but no bears. Fun Weekend!"
"Perfect spot for my 60th birthday celebration! My siblings came from Alaska, Ohio, and Buffalo. We drove up from Hilton Head. This cabin exceeded my expectations. It was so big and the kitchen is awesome! Every couple having their own King sized ked and bathroom is the way to go!! We will be BACK!"
"High school reunion - ""The Boys"" plus wives from 1962. All older and looking 50. Great house for us. "
"Many thanks from the Cunnington, Mackersie, and Inscoe families for a lovely stay at your lodge. You left so many thoughtful and delicious touches. We did see bears!! *(but did not feed them or harass them). What a wonderful time we had in your home. "
Taylor boys and their wives reunion. Great fun space to visit. Everything was well appointed. We enjoyed ourselves!
"Our group of 5 couples from Trilogy in Denver, NC had a blast while riding out Hurricane Florence. We loved the house layout and all the amenities. Lots of good food, drinks, best friends. Looking forward to coming back again. "
"Family birthday celebration brought 10 of us here from Atlanta, Philadephia, and Blowing Rock. Your lovely home was the ideal spot for fun and fellowship. We loved the comfort and spaciousness of the house and took great delight in the beauty of the area - we saw 2 turkeys! Thank you for sharing. "
4 adult brothers and their wives. We had a lovely time hiking in the area and enjoying Asheville.
"Awesome stay! Saw 2 bears upon arrival. Beautiful place & the table made for extra fun. OH, the welcome treat was delicious!!! "
"The Lodge was Immaculate, can't improve on that. Many thanks to the owners who left us a batch of brownies. The Lodge was great!"
Beautiful house and Views! Girls Getaway 2018. Here's to Black Mountain!
"We have taken a family mountain trip since 2006. We have grown from a family of 5 to a family of 9 since then. Although we have changed many locations in the past, this location is the best. Thank you for the wonderful memories. See you next year! "
Your home is amazing! We can't wait to make a lifetime of memories here!
Thank you for the wonderful time in your beautiful home!
The property was perfect. So spacious yet cozy. We loved having our own bathrooms and the king beds in each room was great. The views from all porches were beautiful. Everything that we needed was there. The lodge still had that new wood look and smell. So clean. Two fireplaces and TVs in every room. And the game room. Just wish there was a fire pit. Will definitely return.
This cabin is perfect for a large group/family. The setting is private and ideal for relaxation. It met and exceeded our expectations! Would certainly stay here again and would recommend to friends and family!
Yes absolutely a positive experience!
