My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend. The house is absolutely gorgeous and the backyard unbelievably beautiful. Walk right down to the 1/2 mile loop around a lake stocked with fish. All the rooms are well appointed. The A/C is set at a very comfortable temperature. Breakfasts are full course and DELICIOUS. If you don't mind a... More

I recently spent three nights at the Arbor House when I arrived in the area to bring my daughter back to a nearby school. We had finished a very long drive and literally fell into bed in a wonderfully comfortable room and felt so much better the next AM. We planned to stay 2 nights but it was so comfortable... More

We stayed here for 2 nights over this past weekend. It was such a lovely, clean, easy, cozy place to stay. It was my favorite bed-n-breakfast of all that I've ever been at. Theresa and her husband are super friendly people. They are doing it right! On Saturday we ran in the Spartan Super just a few miles away. Because... More

We were so pleasantly surprised by the room! It had 2 twin beds & a step in shower, so it was easy for Mom. A beautiful setting right on the lake. Theresa worked diligently to make sure everyone's needs were met. Breakfast was thoughtful and delicious each day! We would definitely go back!

Found this cozy B&B nestled on the shore of a nice small lake that provided a walking trail around it's perimeter. We enjoyed a really good dinner at the Native Kitchen and local music on the lake the night we visited. Very comfortable and clean property. Very pleasant innkeeper too. Would recommend and we would revisit.

This solidly built home sits above a lake and on a quarter mile walking path. At the other end of the lake was a music event with a food wagon providing picnic foods for a nominal fee.. perfect after having been traveling all day.

This was our getaway for our 39th anniversary. We could not have picked a better place to stay. Each morning we relaxed and enjoyed our coffee out on an amazing deck that overlooks a great little lake. The weather was perfect we were served breakfast out on the deck and met lots of others that were staying there also. We... More

Marvelous weekend in a special place with special innkeepers. We wouldn't have changed a thing! Well-kept building and grounds are situated close to a small lake. We enjoyed the walking trail around the lake after scrumptious breakfasts. Black Mountain is homey, funky, and hard to leave. We cannot recommend AH B&B highly enough!!

Theresa was a fabulous host and we couldn't have been more satisfied. The room was perfect and the bathroom was amazing. The location and views from the porch were great. The gardens were beautiful. Food was excellent. Would go back in a heartbeat and plan to do so.

The B&B was very clean. The breakfast was wonderful. I saw that the health department rating was 100! That's something I look for because my uncle used to do restaurant inspections. Our room was pleasant. Views are beautiful.
