My husband and I recently spent a Saturday night at the Arbor House. We explored Black Mountain in the afternoon and returned in time for a relaxing glass of wine on the lovely deck which overlooks Lake Tomahawk. Our room, which also had a very nice lake view, was immaculate and very comfortable. Plenty of towels, soaps and creams, and... More

Spent a few days in the NC mountains and stayed one night. Nicest B&B we ever stayed in. House is beautiful, rooms are spacious, bathrooms roomy and modern. Most striking is the furniture and decoration style of everything in the house. Very tasteful, light and airy and good quality. Big difference with most B&Bs, which are stuffed with an overload...

My wife and I were attending a marriage seminar in Ridgecrest , NC. We stayed in the Lookout room, and what a view! The room is huge and so comfortable. We took full advantage of the love seat to sit and cuddle while looking at the hills and lake. Then the bathroom with its huge two person Jacuzzi was another... More

From the time you walk through the front door you feel like you are home. The B&B is so very warm and charming, my husband and I stayed in the Lookout Room, which has a balcony that over looks Lake Tomahawk, the beautiful gardens and peaceful mountains. Each morning we were pampered by the owners Carolyn and Dave with an... More

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
