This B&B is truly a dream come true!! We stopped by one afternoon without a reservation and was pleasantly greeted by the homeowner Carolyn before we could even ring the door bell. She was so warm and inviting and gave us a tour of her beautiful home and available rooms. What really sold me was the BREATHTAKING view off the... More

What a beautiful B&B. My wife and I have visited twice now and would highly recommend Arbor House for your stay in Black Mountain. The owners, Carolyn and Dave, are very accommodating with their menu each morning. Hospitality is clearly a priority here. Arbor House has taken B&Bs to a new level with the updated and cozy interior. The Lookout... More

Wonderfully appointed inside and out. Nice linens. Very comfortable. Owners are great hosts. We had the Lookout and Pinnacle rooms. The view and small lake with walking path are icing on a decadent cake that is Arbor House.

Our stay here is a highlight of every year! Carolyn, the hostess, creates amazing breakfasts -- vegetarian for my husband, vegan and gluten free for me. (She also serves traditional breakfasts to other guests!) That Carolyn is a creative, caring artist is evidenced everywhere inside and outside the beautiful home, from the English gardens, whimsical decor, comfy bed and sheets,... More

We stayed here one night and the house is beautiful and they have a very nice lake to go walk around. However I have to agree with a previous reviewer that the owners weren't as friendly as most B&B owners. The guy introduced himself when we checked in but we never met his wife and in the morning he didn't... More

We recently enjoyed a 3 night stay at the Arbor House. I must adhere to a totally gluten-free diet and Carolyn, our host, prepared delicious, safe breakfasts for me each day. She understands the importance of GF food not coming in contact with foods containing gluten and I was able to relax and enjoy! Our room and bath were large... More

We came with another couple who had been here before. What a wonderful experience. David was a gracious host (Carolyn was visiting folks in the UK). The home is very expansive and beautifully decorated. It was very quiet and the path around the lake is only a few steps from the deck. Breakfast both days was excellent. It's the first... More

You really can't beat this place for the value. The prices include a full breakfast (Made to order for dietary restrictions). You also get the great location of being on Lake Tomahawk and the convenience of being near Black Mountain and a short ride from Asheville. I would highly recommend this place.

We stayed at the Arbor House for 5 nights in April 2014. Lovely room with great views of the lake, wonderful breakfasts, and great decor throughout. We were visiting family in the area, and we were so comfortable at the Arbor House that we were tempted to relax there rather than visit with family!

My husband and I stayed here two nights along with my brother & sister-in-law. The entire house was lovely - very tastefully and comfortably furnished with lots of art work (some by the owner) and interesting furnishings. There were sitting areas of which we availed ourselves, chatting on the back deck overlooking Lake Tomahawk in the late afternoon and again... More
