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

Every aspect of this B and B is perfect. Lovely inn, beautiful and large rooms with comfortable beds and well appointed. Very large bathrooms with spas and showers. The view is totally incredible, the sun rising over the lake, the trees and wildlife make for a serene retreat. The breakfasts were delicious- plenty of food and coffee/tea. Caroline and Dave...

We stayed at Arbor House (Lookout Room) for 2 nights after our wedding and it was such a treat! Dave and Carolyn provide lots of helpful information when it comes to what to do in the area - Carolyn recommended we hike Graybeard and let us borrow a couple hiking sticks which came in handy with creek hopping. They have... More

The setting: Beautiful, well-designed and decorated B&B with amazing bathrooms in each unit! Gorgeous mountain views and Carolyn's spectacular gardens. The part that is _not_ advertised but is certainly worth a mention: Carolyn's amazing gluten free treats (they are very accomodating of any dietary restrictions). Usually, I feel a bit sour as i watch my partner devour cookies and treats... More

the private balcony looks out to the mountains for an awesome view. almost indescribable. The fog lifing from the mountains in the mornings is great to watch... oh and the room is very nice too! The hosts were helpful with local info on places for dinner, etc. and the breakfast was very good.

Best experience I can remember. The Inn was beautiful, quiet and surrounding garden overflowing with flowers, bumble bees and butterflies...exceptional. I was greeted with warm hospitality from the first phone call to the last delicious home made breakfast on the verandah overlooking a gorgeous lake and views to the mountains!!! Dave and Carolyn were sensitive to our gluten free and... More

Best B&B I have ever stayed in. View of Lake is divine. Mountain air is pure as it wafts through the open French doors enabling best sleep I have had in ANY lodging in which I have stayed. Caroline is the hostess and "shakes hands and kisses babies" while husband Dave works quietly in the background to keep things working.... More

Our stay at the Arbor House was disappointing, not because of the accommodations, but by the lack of interaction and inattention; of the hosts. The home and our room were more than satisfactory and the shared spaces quite comfortable. Our visit could have been much more enjoyable, had we felt any warmth from our hosts. The situation might have been... More

Black Mt. is just east of Ashville, wonderful little mountain town with lots of hiking trails very close. The B&B is lovely and I highly recommend the lookout room overly the lake and Carolyn's garden. Service and food was exceptional. We enjoyed celebrating our anniversary.
