The house is very well equipped. Nice location. Steep parking as others said, but doable. We had no issues and enjoyed our stay.
Daniel L. May 2022
Very rustic house in the mountains with gorgeous views from the deck. It was perfect for our group. Parking can be a bit tricky if you have lots of cars, as detailed in the description, so do pay attention to the specific number of parking spots available. Also, like other houses in that area of Montreat, neighboring houses are close by; there is plenty of space in between them for privacy, but not necessarily a "us and nature only" type of mountaintop getaway. As long as you know this, this house is perfect.

We had a great time with what should have been three families (one group had to cancel). More than enough room, as a consequence. The house was clean, comfortable, and well decorated. The site is hilly but that’s what we expected. One word of advice: Check-in before dark; we were confused by too many turns to choose. But the stay was SO worth the effor.

Spacious dining room, plenty of bathrooms for everyone, and great location. Having the upstairs and separate from the downstairs bedrooms was also helpful for the early risers.

Only difficulty was parking. The top lot is steep and tough to pull out of without 4 wheel drive.

This could not have been a better vacation or cabin rental. The communication with Turn Key was excellent! This 8 bedroom house with multiple beds had everything we needed! So great! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The family celebrated my wife`s 50th and the cabin was perfect for all 21 of us. Plenty of space for together or private time. Nearby Black Mountain has a little of everything. The entrance to the house has steps and not access for wheelchairs so if you are walking challenged, probably not the cabin for you This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Linger Longer was the perfect set-up for our large group stay in Montreat! Would highly suggest this property to anyone housing a big group. Bathrooms in every room, multiple kitchen appliances, and the large porches were just some of the amenities that made our stay more comfortable. TurnKey was incredibly responsive every time we reached out and provided top notch customer service. Thank you for making our stay so wonderful!

We loved our stay at Linger Longer Lodge. There was plenty of room for everyone. There was 14 of us for the 4th of July weekend. The home was clean and spacious. The kitchen was very well equipped as we all love to cook. The Turnkey property managers were very helpful and responsive to our needs. The only erroneous information from was that the grill was gas and it was charcoal and not clean when we arrived and actually should be replaced. The home is fantastic but the parking is very difficult. I would not recommend it for anyone who cannot maneuver stairs. There are many going up and down to the home. We loved the surrounding area. Black Mountain was a lovely town with lots to do. We really enjoyed our stay. The location and difficulty with parking are the only negatives to this property.

We had a large family vacation and the cabin was great. It was clean, had bathrooms in every room and a big kitchen. The pictures on the website do not show that the cabin is in a very dense neighborhood with a house literally 20 feet away. Parking is extremely difficult, especially if you have more that two cars to park. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This house slept our group of 13 perfectly. Great views and house! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Beautiful location of the home. We were a family of 19 that truly enjoyed this home. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
David . Dec 2019
The space and number of rooms was perfect for our Family Gathering. When we arrived, we found a very poorly cleaned & maintained property. Floors were dirty, furniture was dirty with food caked to surface of the dinning room chairs. Also, the living area furniture was dirty with debris and food between the cushions on furniture. The bedroom floors were dirty, with food particles and popcorn under some beds. We cleaned the living area before the rest of the family arrived. Cold water faucet in the kitchen sink was inoperable and repair person who came was unable to repair. Needs to be replaced. Parts of one of the light fixtures in one bedroom fell on the final night and struck one of the boys. It had obviously been glued together previously. The charcoal grill is basically unusable and should be replaced. Access is difficult, especially for large SUV vehicles. The exterior doors on the decks are very difficult to open and close properly. With a little TLC and better housekeeping this would be a great house for a large group who don`t mind the access issues.

This was the 30th year that we have spent Thanksgiving in the mountains of North Carolina with our family. Most have been at Montreat. Eight bedrooms and nine baths with a large living area was perfect. The only criticism would be that access from the lower parking area is challenging for the older members of our group, but this is the mountains. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Kim . Nov 2019
House was perfectly cleaned and having the sheets and towels was a huge bonus! We had one small issue with a doorknob and Turnkey texted us back immediately with help on the way. Couldn`t have been more professional and responsive. The text feature is awesome! We love Linger Longer Lodge and we`re glad to be able to keep coming back!

Mary . Nov 2019
We loved that every bedroom had its own bathroom. The kitchen had everything we needed. However, the grill is very old and difficult to use. As other reviews have stated, the driveway is a bit challenging and the roads are very narrow and curvy. The town of Black Mountain is very quaint. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Jennifer . Jul 2019
Overall we had a good experience!, The only problem was the cleanliness of the house. Management was gracious and offered to come and take care of any issues, which I declined! It is a fun space, close to town, and close to neighbors!
We had a blast! Some of the furniture needs repair! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
