If you're looking for a great place to unwind - look no further. From the moment you enter the communities' gated entrance, you'll sense the beauty and serenity surrounding you. This luxury one bedroom apartment is the ideal location to blend the relaxation of a mountain retreat with visits to Black Mountain (10 minutes away), Asheville (25 minutes away) and all that Western North Carolina has to offer. Featuring solid oak doors and trim, 11 foot ceilings, over 750 square feet of space, a washer/dryer and every comfort of home you can imagine. Fully furnished and accessorized, the apartment is ready for you to arrive with just your suitcase. You'll be as impressed with the meticulous attention to cleanliness as you are with the mountain views and hikes just outside your door. The owners of the home are on premises and offer hiking and skiing suggestions for all levels of ability... If you'd like a personal hike guide or a professional ski lesson - just ask! (Sugar Mountain Ski Area is only an hour away ... up where it's snowy!) The apartment is perfect for enjoying the cool Summer weather and Autumn foliage or having a nice peaceful escape after a day on the slopes, playing golf, hiking or shopping. IMPORTANT NOTES: 1) MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY IS TWO PERSONS, 2)THERE IS NO SMOKING ALLOWED ON THE ENTIRE PROPERTY - DO NOT BOOK HERE IF YOU MUST SMOKE, 3) ABSOLUTELY NO PETS ALLOWED.
Having traveled extensively ourselves, we've enjoyed (and in some cases not enjoyed!) a wide variety of accommodations. Quality construction and amenities, cleanliness, peace and quiet, the great outdoors and a comfortable feeling of home are what we look for in our travels and we really enjoy offering just that to our guests. Having stayed at some of the finest hotels and B&B's, we know what it takes to make guests feel comfortable, welcome and at ease.

True quality and location. At 3500' in the Blue Ridge Mountains, in a private gated community, with the 22,000 acres of fully protected watershed forest as our neighbor - one can't find a much nicer place to have it all - and be away from it all at the same time - and still be only 10 minutes from town! 'Why this property?' - because it's one of the nicest places on earth!
We fell in love with our land the moment we saw it! It is very rare to find land at 3500' on a mountainside that allows for one level living and a large, moderately sloped/flat driveway - serviced by Asheville's spectacular quality water. We did all the design work on the home prior to construction. From the initial site work through the design and construction of the home, we applied many years of experience to every detail. Very few rental units have solid oak doors and trim... 11 foot ceilings... their own private entrance... private parking... private patio... washer and dryer... full kitchen, etc. etc. This apartment was designed to give the comfort and service of a fully decked out condominium (it's actually much larger - and way nicer - than most one bedroom condos!)
The apartment is gorgeous. (and huge!) It's more like a luxury, private condominium than an apartment! We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be returning. It was great to be within ten minutes of Black Mountain and have the apartment to 'get back to nature.' Four thumbs up from us - thank you!
Jim and Sues Home was a perfect place for my Grand daughter and myself to stay. It is very comfortable, clean and quiet. The elevation
put us almost at the top of the mountain, so the views while hiking were beautiful. It makes you feel like you want to live there. Our Hosts were
always available if we needed them and always so gracious to answer any questions we came up with. We would definitely go back there to stay again. Thank you for your services.
We had a wonderful first time stay in Black Mountain. The town was charming and the views were amazing. Thank you for allowing us to rent your apartment and for the advice to go to Mt. Mitchell. It was spectacular!
The owners were delightful folks and provided good customer service! The property was meticuously kept--very clean! Not as private as I would have liked since the owners lived on-site. However, their friendliness and suggestions made up somewhat for the lack of privacy. The little town of Black Mountain is cute and everyone is so friendly. It is very close to Biltmore, so would be a good place to stay if planning a tour of Biltmore. Phil's Bar B Q restaurant was a great place to eat. It was very comfortable inside. The walk down to the entrance was steep, and not necessarily good for anyone with mobility issues. There was no outdoor grill available except the owner's and, unfortunately, there was not a good view from the lower level where the apartment is. I would recommend this property.
We loved our time in this very clean, very quiet, very peaceful apartment! The neighborhood is breathtaking and the nearby towns of Black mountain and Montreat are perfect for spending a restful weekend. We would not hesitate to return. In fact, we are planning on coming back. Maybe next time we'll see the bears!
This is a spacious private basement apartment in the owner's mountain home, less than 15 minutes from downtown Black Mountain. It is beyond spotless and tastefully designed and decorated, with high ceilings and lots of light. The owners thoughtfully provide useful information about the area and will offer suggestions on local activities. Louise's Kitchen & Blue Ridge Biscuit Company should not be missed for breakfast.
Jim & Sue were welcoming & very helpful. Their property is lovely & the surrounding area is beautiful. This was a good location for us as we were concentrating our hiking along the BRP north of Asheville-- plus there were all of the wonderful places to see & eat in the area. I only wish there had been designated task lighting so we could read our trail maps a little easier in the evening. We would definitely come back to this lovely location.
Black Mountain is well known as 'The Front Porch of Western North Carolina.' The front porch to the prettiest mountains on earth! This huge one bedroom apartment has everything you need for a quiet, comfortable, peaceful vacation. Located in WNC's nicest, yet down to earth, upscale gated community, at 3500 feet above sea level on a wonderful mountain, surrounded by forever wild forests and featuring views of the mountains just out your door, you'll instantly feel at home. Most folks come to the mountains to escape the hustle bustle of town/city life - on Laurel Ridge, you'll have the best accommodations available in the region, with serenity to spare - just 10 easy minutes from downtown Black Mountain or 25 minutes to Asheville. The Biltmore house, Chimney Rock, all the best of Black Mountain and Asheville and spectacular hiking, biking and outdoor opportunities are all easily accessible right outside your door and within easy driving distances. Your hosts are more than happy to share their experiences in the region with you - just ask!
