“Lovely home! Perfect location!”

Beautiful home! Clean, comfortable. Quiet. Fully equipped kitchen. Rental agency was friendly, helpful and responsive to our needs. As a very nice touch, the rental agency left us a yummy pumpkin bread from a local bakery. There is a gas fireplace in the living room, but we couldn't figure out how to use it and were hesitant to fiddle with the gas lines. However, there is a wood burning fireplace outside on the screened in (very large) porch that was wonderful! Campfire wood was provided for our use and we simply collected some kindling pieces from the woods surrounding the home. Beds were very comfortable, especially the two full beds on the second floor. Having 3 bathrooms for 3 women was a great treat! Excellent location!
The town of Black Mountain itself has lots of unique shops and galleries. The corner hardware store, Town Hardware and General Store, with it's creaky wooden floors was a great place to visit - lots of nostalgia - sort of like a VT Country store catalog! The Merry Wine Market was another favorite stop as was the Mountain Nest Gallery. Be sure to stop at Kilwin's for some amazing ice cream! Be aware that many shops and restaurants are closed on Sundays and Mondays. Check before heading out.
We tried the Trailhead Restaurant and the Dark City Deli and were not disappointed. The food was freshly prepared, creative and delicious. Both places also provided a great selection of local craft beers.
Lake Tomahawk is just down the street from the cottage and provides a half mile loop trail. It's a great place to walk and enjoy the beautiful views of the mountains.
Asheville is about a 20 minute ride on I-40.
We were advised that our GPS might not work in the mountains but we had no problem at all.
We'd love to return here next year for another visit!

“Excellent place to stay with a family”
Reviewed December 5, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

The cottage with 2 bedrooms on the main floor & 1 bedroom upstairs was perfect for our family of 5. The main floor living room was a perfect gathering spot & the screened in porch with the wood burning fireplace was perfect for relaxing & snores. The cottage was neat & clean. The rental agency was professional & courteous. We enjoyed our stay.
