We found The Bald Mountain house to be a fantastic location for celebrating our anniversary and exploring the western North Carolina high peak mountains. The high altitude was a pleasantly cool respite from the valley below. We took advantage of the close proximity to the Appalachian Trail with the long range views from the top of grassy Bald Mountain. Mars Hill is close by, and we enjoyed dinner and a play. Monica and Tony were welcoming and made us feel right at home. The home and surroundings are beautiful! We cannot say enough about Monica's talents as a chef! Delicious and elegant breakfasts were over the top! In addition to our generous suite, we enjoyed a large living room and dining area, and we watched the sun set on Mt. Mitchell from the large covered porch. A refrigerator in the common area was stocked with drinks, and we were pampered on arrival with a handmade sweet chocolate treat with a "Happy Anniversary" greeting.
