If you want a chain Motel with a TV and AC this is not your place. The house was built in 1838 and expectations should accommodate this fact. My wife and I love these type of inns and this one did not disappoint. From the creaky stairs to the musty aroma, the inn is satisfied our expectations. We stayed in... More

My colleague made reservations for both of us to have separate rooms for a special price. Upon arrival the front desk attendant could not get his head wrapped around assigning a separate name & rewards # to my reservation? Than we did not get the king size bed rooms we requested in our reservation? Upon check out I I was... More

Our week long summer stay is over and it's hard to leave the Black Mountain Inn. I know I will be back! The peace and tranquility here I have found no where else. As usual, June made us feel more guests but like old friends returning home. I cherish the quiet with no TV's or video game systems people really... More

This Inn is really a step back in time. Fresh mountain breezes (there is no air conditioning), antiques, cobwebs, dirty windows, creaky stairs, noisy trains and little gathering space for cards, socializing, etc. Have stayed in older places which were much cleaner. Would have liked coffee or water available in the dining room when we arrived after our long drive.... More

We booked a very nice room via Hotels.com for our 10th anniversary, for two nights over Memorial Day weekend at the Black Mountain Inn. I even called the innkeeper and left a message nearly a week in advance of check-in to mention my name, give my number, and request coordination given our late check-in in the early evening. I heard... More

I see that this inn has some good ratings, and a few bad ones. Just as some people like asparagus and some don't, this place was just not for us. The inn keeper tried as much as she could to make us happy including offering another room with a better mattress, but while we were considering that the train went... More

My wife and I had recently a two-night stay at this little gem (room Emili). We wanted a romantic getaway, with the possibility to also visit places around, and being close to Asheville. It was one of those rare trips that one would never forget. The rooms are very cozy and with an authentic nineteenth century feeling. Area is very... More

Fresh off the beaten path.just what we like.tucked behind bamboo, this inn is everything you want to escape it all. The character and charm of the inn start with all the natural light the windows let in. All the beautiful wood inside would thrill anyone who appreciates a place where you can see the thought out effort in it's furnishings.... More

Nice property even in the winter. Warm wood burning stoves and in era furniture and window dressings and big old fashion tubs and beds. Like stepping back in time. What a wonderful breakfast, in Dec to have fresh bananas with orange on French toast. Lovely energy and what a great Inn Keeper. Always have the tea ready and coffee if... More

First off, let me say the establishment is for sale and it certainly has the feel of an owner who is running it as if they don't want to do the business anymore. The Inn is sparsely decorated, if you wanted to find out about the dwelling or the town, good luck . Any information and the owner is missing.... More
