It was a quiet, out-of-the-way place that was close to everything we were there for. We were able to relax every time we arrived there from our outings.
The amazing view and quite neighborhood. Black Mountain is such a lovely place.
It was absolutely wonderful. it is located in a very safe & quiet neighborhood, very clean, and only 20 minutes away from downtown Asheville. the town of Black Mountain has a cute downtown to check out as well. just a heads up, it was not an issue for us, but the driveway was very steep.
Thank you for providing such a lovely, clean, and cared-for home for our family to enjoy this beautiful part of the world. In the busyness of life being here allowed us to slow down, catch our breath, reconnect, and make memories. Hiking to Falls and Tom's Creek, horseback riding at Cedar Creek Stables, and eating out at several local restaurants were all wonderful! My favorite moments though were here - the mornings on the porch with my coffee's husband, the time with my daughter in the hot tub watching fireflies, and the day we stayed home. My son played guitar for hours. Good times! Good times!
We loved absolutely everything about our stay in Black Mountain. We are regulars and this stay at this property was by far the best! We highly recommend this property and company. Incredible!
Wonderful home. Beautiful spot. Would love the rent this house again.
Great location close to town and easy to get into Asheville! A family of 7 had plenty of room to spend time together and apart!
This house had the perfect living room, kitchen, and bedroom space with the 3 bedrooms and full bathrooms. It is close to everything in Black Mountain and down the street from Asheville, and on a nice quiet street nestled back from the road. The backyard also has a lovely patio area and a fire pit. It is highly recommended.
Very nice cabin in a quiet neighborhood that’s close to stores. The property is clean and exactly as described.
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 house was clean, and it was in a great location.
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.
The location was excellent and the cabin had everything we needed!
The layout of the house, location, and cleanliness. Loved the property! Will return again!
So sweet getting to see Barkers and explore around Black Mountain and Montreat. First family vacation with the first grandbaby. A sweet and cozy stay and memories we will cherish.
We had a lovely time in Asheville/Black Mountain area. We even had some black bears visit us. The hot tub under the stars was so enjoyable.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
Great property. TVs in the bedroom would be great.
Kitchen was nice
"Very well stocked. We loved the baking stone, iron skillet, and the huge round pizza pan/ cookie sheet."
overall very nice
Close to charming little downtown of Black Mountain - about 20 minutes from downtown Asheville.
"We had an incredible stay at this property! The house was extremely clean, had contactless check-in, and was well stocked!

Great memories! We would absolutely stay here again. Thank you for the hospitality!
"We had a wonderful time in this beautiful cabin. This was our first outing after quarantine. The house was spotless clean and we felt very comfortable. The views are beautiful & drinking coffee in the morning on the deck was so peaceful. Lots of birds singing! Hot tub was sparkly clean. Comfortable beds & kitchen has everything we needed. We did some fantastic hikes. We brought our chocolate lab ""Nutella"" and she enjoyed it as much as we did! We don't want to leave & but we definitely know we will be returning! Wish we could give you 10 out of 5 stars! Everything exceeded our expectations! "
"We stayed there February 15-17 and were very impressed with the whole property. Lots of room for kids and adults to spread out. Beautifully constructed, decorated, appointed- everything extremely clean. Picturesque neighborhood and views close to the heart of Black Mountain. We would love to stay there again!"
My experience as a Carolina Mornings' guest was absolutely positive!
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!
We had a wonderful weekend in this beautiful home! Thank you so much for opening it up to us!
"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!"
"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."
"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!"
"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!"
Our family enjoyed our stay so much! It was such a great weekend. We loved the serenity of the woods the most.
We had a great time! Beautiful home. We missed the bears. Maybe next time.
"Lakey Gap Lodge is beautiful and situated in the perfect spot, just far enough from downtown Black Mountain to feel like a retreat. Relaxing and clean and so lovely! We will come back!"
Thank you for a wonderful Black Mountain Experience - we so enjoyed the Lakey Gap Lodge - our family had everything needed. We all had a great time and the house was wonderful!
"Thank you for an amazing time, Black Mountain! We met friends up here for a quick mountain getaway, and it was perfect! The home, clean and beautiful. The town, picturesque and scenic! Thank you!"
"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."
"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."
"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!"
