Arbor House provides a beautiful and restful place to stay for a trip to the mountains of North Carolina. The setting beautiful--overlooking a lovely garden and small lake with a view of the Appalachians in the background. The house itself is light, open, and beautifully outfitted, and the room we stayed in, Lookout, was spacious with a private deck overlooking... More

probably one of the most lovely B&Bs we' have stayed in....immaculate, charmingly furnished, absolutely beautiful deck/breakfast are overlooking a small mountain lake complete with geese honking into landings, an amazing garden below, 4 sizable bedrooms, great shower, comfortable bed, great breakfast, snacks and drinks in the guest pantry, and a reasonable rate, avoiding the Asheville city congestion. We will come... More

We hope you had a safe and wonderful trip home. Jim and I had a wonderful time talking to you out on the deck. Such an adventuresome and kind couple and wish we would have had more time to sit and talk some more. Perhaps this fall. Take care! More

This B&B has a beautiful setting -- right on the lake. Very peaceful. Easy half-mile walk around the lake. So night to have breakfast on the deck overlooking the lake. Exceptionally clean. Comfortable bed in the Pinnacle room. A little noise from room above us in the morning but not too bad. Owners were very friendly and breakfast was great.

We recently flew over from Houston for a welcome break from the Texas heat. In addition having ever stayed at a B&B, the Arbor House exceeded all expectations. Being a high structure person initial perceptions tell the story. As we arrived viewing the property,landscape,and maticulous decorating set the long weekends tone. Theresa and Jim 's personalities are a natural for... More

My husband and I were in Black Mountain for a wedding and wanted to make it a special weekend away. After arriving at Arbor House, we realized we should have come a day or two before the festivities began. This B&B is nestled on a hill beside a beautiful lake. Jim and Theresa were awesome. The food was delicious, the... More

We found Arbor House excellent in every way. We loved our comfortable room, the beautiful view, the location, the gorgeous gardens, the breakfast and most important our hosts, Jim and Theresa. We were only there two nights and wished it were longer. Therefore, our return is a guarantee.

My husband and I booked a two night stay-cation at Arbor House for the purpose of rest and relaxation from our 24/7 care giving duties. What a gem! Arbor House is truly idyllic. The setting is peaceful----a tree-lined lake with mountain views enhance delicious breakfasts, drinks like iced lavender infused pink lemonade, or quiet meditative evenings. The room we had... More

We stayed at Arbor House on a Saturday night. The house and views are beautiful. Jim is a trained chef and he did not disappoint. The highlights of breakfast were a kale sweet potato hash and a peach coffee cake among other things. The Arbor House is also in walking distance to downtown Black Mountain which has a variety of...
