Breathtaking Splendor
There is a saying that automatically brings this home to mind: Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but the moments that take your breath away. The splendor of this bountiful landscape is boundless and breathtaking!

Guests have called the views therapeutic. This is a retreat you will not want to leave. When you do, it is one you and your family (four-legged family members welcome) will long to return to again and again, no matter the season. This mountain home is 33 miles from Linville Caverns, 52 miles from Grandfather Mountain State Park and the Mile High Swinging Bridge, 19.3 miles to the Beach at Lake Lure, 20.6 miles to Chimney Rock State Park, and 27.7 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC).

A Therapeutic Recharge
Whether it is to get away for a long weekend (there is a 3-night minimum stay) or relaxing vacation , just step inside Mountain Moments and you will feel your stress melt away. The wall of windows, stone fireplace, and hardwood walls and floors of the great room give an instant feeling of warmth and comfort. Just imagine enjoying a gorgeous sunset while relaxing in front of a blazing fire. Dine indoors or in the mountain air on stone patio (gas grill) with a fire pit to keep you warm. This is also a perfect spot for your morning coffee or tea; just have a seat on the stone wall.

With All the Comforts of Home
With three spacious bedrooms, a loft sleeping area, and two (2) full baths, there is ample room for seven (7) guests. The fully equipped kitchen has a dishwasher, refrigerator, range, microwave, coffee maker, and a variety of small appliances. In the hall is a stacked washer/dryer.

Profesional, quick to respond with any questions or concerns. We ran into one of the team members at the cabin as he was wrapping up the finishing touches on the cabin, and we arrived about 30 minutes early, we just drove in from Florida. He was very friendly and went over various things to do, where to get groceries, etc.Very professional team that made sure our stay exceeded our expectations. The cabin was amazing, the views were breathtaking. Exactly what we needed for an unforgettable Thanksgiving weekend. The team communicated frequently prior to our stay but not too much that it became annoying.
Our family had an amazing trip to the mountains of NC. 2020 has been such a crazy year we have been unable to travel anywhere, but this was just what the doctor ordered. We were secluded, when we wanted to be and close enough to Lake Lure,, Grandfather Mountain, and the Mile High Bridge, that we were able to be around other people visiting this beautiful town and site see at the same time.

Everything was perfect the cabin is great fully stocked everything you might need is there. The only glitch in our stay was we ordered firewood and it was delivered as promised but it was wet and we had to go buy an ax to break it down into smaller pieces in order to get it to burn This was not a deal breaker. Didnt affect or stay in the least Everything else was absolutely amazing.

You all were so friendly and accommodating. I cannot thank you enough for being so prompt and helpful with all of our questions and needs.
The pictures did not do this property justice. The view was incredible, and the house was beautiful. There was a small drop in the bedroom upstairs on our last day, and I believe it may have been the AC unit. I would check just in case! You guys are the best and we will certainly be back! The property was immaculate. The view was absolutely amazing, and the house had everything you could possibly need for a perfect weekend with family and friends.

Only had email interaction, but it was fine. Efficient.
We loved the property and would like to use it again. The only knock against the property was being asked to pay a cleaning fee AND being expected to tote trash off the property several miles away (or face a fine). Five stars but for that.
