MORE ABOUT THE MOUNTAINVIEW LODGE
Think of the lodge as your home away from home with privacy and luxury views!
Our year-round NC mountain cabin rental boasts one large bedroom suite with a private bath, an ultra-comfortable king-size bed, with a separate twin daybed, perfect for reading under the stars or additional sleeping space for your little ones. There is a crib available as per your needs.
The downstairs bedroom offers a deluxe queen size bed and workstation. The additional downstairs room includes a bunk bed with a trundle as well as a game console, giant TV, kids' toys, and family games.
All basic kitchen amenities, plus a large dining table and smart TV are included. We can accommodate up to eight comfortably on beds, as well as a pull-out couch bed as needed for a total of 10 people. There is also a secret hiking spot just for you, down the lane from our lodge. Stargazing is a guest favorite while rocking on our cozy handcrafted bench on the upper deck or while sitting 'round the firepit. Put a record on and enjoy the view.
A blanket of stars awaits!
Have you ever fallen in love with a place the moment you stepped foot there?
That’s how we felt about the mountains, specifically traveling to the Blue Ridge Mountains whenever we could, dreaming of our own little slice of this heaven. When we found the cabin we now know as the Mountainview Lodge, we knew it was meant to be. The cabin sits atop a mountain with the most beautiful views, while still being a fairly easy (and relatively short) drive up – believe me, we've had our share of bad mountain roads and this isn't one of them! But the lodge needed some care. In October 2021, we purchased the property, and shortly after have begun the remodel process – inviting guests, friends, and family to visit and stay along the way!
Our goal is to make this mountain top cabin rental a serene and cozy place for us and our guests to enjoy.
We love this little slice of property in the clouds (seriously some mornings you are literally looking at clouds on the other side of the windows) and have already created many precious memories with our children here. From gathering 'round the firepit, to evenings in the hot tub together to working as a family to create a welcoming retreat, we’ve come to love our Mountainview Lodge even more.
We can’t wait to share it with you.
ABOUT ANDREWS, NC
Andrews is a small town nestled into the western corner of NC. Away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, it offers a peaceful place to relax while enjoying some of the most spectacular scenery year-round. People say Andrews is only two hours from anywhere – and it's become the perfect location for our family-friendly top-of-the-mountain getaway.
Andrews is located in a serene valley in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. It is approximately 90 miles southwest of Asheville, 85 miles south of Knoxville and 75 miles east of Chattanooga. Atlanta is just 130 miles south of Andrews.
Nature lovers can enjoy many outdoor activities in the area’s unspoiled streams, rivers, mountains, and ridges.
There are also many thriving small businesses in town, including restaurants, retail shops, breweries, wineries, artists’ galleries, and gift shops.
Average temperatures in the summer in the valley ranges from highs of about 85 degrees to lows in the 60s.
Average temperatures in the winter in the valley range from highs at 50 degrees, with lows around 20.
I had a wonderful time at the Mountain View Lodge. The beds were comfy, the kitchen was fully equipped, they had puzzles, games and of course internet and TV. The winding mountain road wasn’t busy at all, we took daily walks and only saw someone once. It’s a great place to unplug and relax, and the views are just incredible.
ABOUT CHRIS AND TABITHA BLUE
Believe it or not, this is our very first home away from home (when we're not here, we live in Florida), even though we've been traveling to these mountains for years!
Together we’re a husband and wife team with a passion to find the beauty in everyday moments as well as the potential in home design.
Chris is a life coach and pastor in Holiday, Florida and during the week helps to wrangle our Great Dane, two cats, and six kids, including two-year-old twin boys — and tackles all of the DIY projects thrown his way. Tabitha is the creator, stylist, life coach, and writer behind FreshMommyBlog.com where we share our home DIY projects (to make life and home more organized and functional for our big family!), recipes, style inspiration, and of course fun life lessons.
Our recipes and tips have been featured in In-Style, Real Simple, Southern Living, Health, People and O, The Oprah Magazine, and Tabitha launched two books last year (which you can browse in the cabin, of course).
We want The Mountainview Lodge to be an oasis of peace and place to refresh and recharge for every guest that steps through the doors. We hope that you find it to be a home away from home and fall in love with the beauty of the mountains, just like we did.
