Nice location in Black Mountain

  • 4 of 5

Property was described correctly in the listing. The home could use some detail cleaning under and around things but overall was clean. The bunkhouse needs something done to it to remove the mildew odor. It was overwhelming even after letting it air out.

Owner was responsive to one issue we had. If you have pets it's a nice location for them.

Great property in the mountain

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time in Black Mountain. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. The only downside was the bunkhouse. It smelled awful, like wet mold and stale air.

Exceeded every expectation

  • 5 of 5

The property feels very secluded and deep in the woods, while still being relatively easy to access and Lyft is still able to pick up here. The views are fantastic and the cabin is perfectly equipped for a comfortable getaway, we had 8 guests and found there was plenty of room leftover. Asheville has lots of breweries and restaurants to explore, it will take a return trip here to start to scratch the surface

Beautiful cabin tucked up in the forest but minutes from town.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The home had everything we needed for the kitchen, and plenty of extra linens and towels. We had two families meet there and there was plenty of sleeping space. The kids especially enjoyed staying out in the bunkhouse on their own.

We would definitely stay here again!
