What a great home to have special family memories together. We loved the porch and fireplace especially. It was a nice time away. From the hustle of Chicago. We hope to be back someday.

The cabin is very nice and makes a good weekend getaway, though I wish there was more done to make sure everything was in working order.

Clean and Man Cave Basement
Loved the basement that was my man cave. Anyway, the place was super clean. The stairs weren't steep at all—awesome hot tub. The basement TV is BIG and awesome. Recommend going to the Biltmore and all over the great place.

Lovely Time
We had a lovely time at the cabin and really enjoyed exploring the town. Plenty of hiking, breweries, and shopping to make this trip a most wonderful 40th birthday gift!
Kevin T from Irvine, CA - Posted: 7/21/2022 - Stayed from: 6/6/2022 to 6/11/2022
Clean and comfortable cabin - living room seating was a little tight and mattresses a little hard, but overall a very positive experience. very convenient to town and Asheville yet remote and tranquil.
Robert F from Houston, TX - Posted: 7/14/2022 - Stayed from: 6/27/2022 to 7/2/2022
The cleanest Airbnb I’ve ever stayed at.
We had an amazing stay at this beautiful cabin! The cleanest Airbnb I’ve ever stayed at. The kitchen was supplied with everything that we needed and loved that they had labels on all the light switches. Very convenient location just outside of Asheville.
Priscilla G from St. Augustine, FL - Posted: 6/21/2022 - Stayed from: 3/4/2022 to 3/7/2022
Clean and Well-Stocked
Stayed here with my husband although the house would very comfortably accommodate 8 people. Incredibly clean, well-maintained, and well-stocked. There are also lots of helpful tips and labels throughout the house. All wood cabin on a secluded lot in a quiet neighborhood makes for a perfect getaway. Very close drive into town and to various hikes and outdoor activities.
Justya F from USA - Posted: 6/21/2022 - Stayed from: 4/14/2022 to 4/17/2022
The Views were Stunning
We had a wonderful time at the Lakey Gap Lodge! The views were stunning, especially with the snow! We loved the hot tub and the wood-burning fireplace!
Ellie D from Irvine, CA - Posted: 6/21/2022 - Stayed from: 4/1/2022 to 4/7/2022
Gorgeous Views
This was the perfect spot to enjoy a short weekend with family. Although it was only minutes from the center of Black Mountain, it truly felt like a log cabin tucked away in the mountains. Gorgeous view and close to everything we wanted to do last weekend. Highly recommend!

We LOVED it. Thank you!

My experience as a Carolina Mornings' guest was absolutely positive!
Cory J - Posted: 2/23/2020
This was our first Christmas since my brother passed away and this cabin and Black Mountain eased the sting. It was a truly magical Christmas! Three generations in the house and tons of memories. We hiked Stoney Knob to the ridge over 6 of the 7 sisters and came down GreyBeard for a grand total of over 12 miles! It was amazing! We ate at almost every restaurant BMt has to offer AND caught a phenomenal concert by the Asheville Jazz Orchestra at White Horse Black Mountain. Love it here!
Crater F - Posted: 12/30/2019
We had a wonderful weekend in this beautiful home! Thank you so much for opening it up to us!
The D from Kenly, NC - Posted: 12/16/2019
"Everything was perfect for our long weekend stay at Lakey Gap Lodge! There were 4 adults and 4 children. The kids had room to play, outside scavenger hunts and they LOVED the hot tub. Close to downtown Asheville and Black Mountain Historic district is adorable! We loved every minute of it!"
Michelle F from Brookhaven, GA - Posted: 11/22/2019
"We are leaving today, but we don't want to. Every morning we see the beautiful sunrise from the valley beyond. It's such a delight to walk out onto the terrace and see the beautiful fall leaves. We came here to showcase the Black Mountains to my mom and in-laws. They're in their 80s and they were blown away by the beauty of our cabin lodge and the surrounding area. Thank you so much for everything. P.S. Love the shower and fireplace."
Nathalie T from Boca Raton, FL - Posted: 11/11/2019
"We really enjoyed our stay here at Lakey Gap; it is a beautiful cabin and cute little area. We had a full, fun packed week of the BIltmore, the Arboretum, Sierra Nevada Brewery Mount Mitchell, many overlooks on the Parkway, the Folk Art Center, Downtown Asheville and downtown Black Mountain. There is so much to do and so many places to go and we highlight recommend all of the above. I hope everyone reading this enjoys their time as much as we did. * We were also lucky enough to see a mama bear on the Parkway!"
Mary & from Blue Ridge, VA - Posted: 10/28/2019
"We enjoyed your cabin! There were 3 couples and we enjoyed each couple having their own floor. We celebrated birthdays by brew hopping...Dirty Jack's, Burial, Wicked Weed, Black Mountian Brewery, & Lookout Mountain Brewery. Good times with friends! Buxton Hall and Cultura are must eats! Hope to hit Sierra Nevada on our way back to IN. Hope to visit again!"
Jackie F from Murfreesboro, TN - Posted: 10/24/2019
Our family enjoyed our stay so much! It was such a great weekend. We loved the serenity of the woods the most.

Jenna R from Vero Beach, FL - Posted: 7/10/2019
"We loved our stay in the cabin, so close to everything. We enjoyed the weather mostly, we are from Florida. We enjoyed Asheville shopping, Linville Caverns, Lake Lure and Nantahala rafting so fun! And to top off our trip we loved Asheville Adventure Center where my son and husband ziplined and the family did treetops canopy tour."
Buck & from Naples, FL - Posted: 6/17/2019
"Our family couldn't have enjoyed Lakey Gap cabin any more! Asheville, Biltmore, Ziplining, Lake James - the list goes on. We hope everyone enjoys it as much as we did."
Robin M from Bexley, OH - Posted: 6/17/2019
"We loved our time here at Lakey Gap Lodge! The cabin is beautiful and fit the needs of our family of 4. Perfect size to be together and to have our own space when needed. The cabin's location to stores and restaurants was appreciated after long days of hiking and being in the car. We highly suggest Black Mountain Ale House for a casual lunch or dinner. We love coming to the mountains, and will hopefully have the opportunity to stay at this lovely, clean cabin again! Thank you!"
