What Past Guests Are Saying
Comfortable, well equipped 'cottage' with fantastic views
Black Mountain is a delightful community just east of asheville, NC. The pictures of the 'cottage' hardly do it justice. The views were fantastic. We often saw wild turkeys while coming and going from Orchard Knob, and a Mama Bear with three cubs, also. We especially enjoyed our time on the covered deck, having dinner and spending time together. The kitchen was well equipped.
We had a wonderful stay.
What a view!!!
We felt so at home in this wonderful house. The view from the deck was phenomenal. Comfortable beds-separate downstairs accommodations-fireplaces and more! I live in a very flat state and the mountain roads and driveways were a bit overwhelming but the house was well worth it. The rental agent was extremely organized and helpful. Would stay again.

Pictures so not do it justice!
The house was extremely comfortable with excellent views. The pictures do not do the house justice. It has a lot of space and lots of seating. The house is way up on the mountain so expect a drive up very steep roads. There is a lot of wildlife, lots of turkeys and deer. We heard about the bears but we didn't see any. Do not go off of the balcony at night because we did find a copperhead on the pavement at night. The house has a two car garage which is very nice. I would definitely stay again! The only thing that was needed is a hot tub!

Unexpected snow in October
Orchard knob Is Beautiful. We had a wonderful visit. We did get into the house on Saturday midday. Fortunately we decided to go into town for food staples only to get snowed in on Sunday. We lost power for several hours. Greybeard assisted in getting engineer to strop by and fix gas fireplace so we had heat. The owners gave us far more paper products and stock items in the refrigerator than expected.
There was nothing we wanted for and would thoroughly enjoy a return visit.
The location on the mountains was very picturesque for autumn and then gave us a feel for winter when the snow storm hit.
Thanks for a great vacation.
Great views. If you like to walk, better be in fairly good shape. Roads are very steep. Don't feed the bears . They're there.
Delightful spacious home. It was on top of a mountain but all on paved roads. We had a wonderful weekend with friends. Took walks around the house- saw wild turkeys. Close to town.
Chapel Hill, NC
This is my family's favorite place to stay while in Black Mountain. It is set-up perfectly for our needs and the view off the rear deck is wonderful. We consider this our home away from home.
Great place; well maintained, fantastic views. Quiet, peaceful. Very relaxing. Loved it.

What a view!!!
Nice home, well kept, spacious with 3 full bed rooms with own bath and another half bath in enrance hall.All modern amenities. Beautiful view facing south toward Black Mountain. Very steep access road can be a challenge if there is the slightest amount of ice or snow. Small recommendation:shower curtainsare mildewed. They can be changed inexpensively and it would be more pleasant when taking a shower.
Fort myers, Fl
Everything went smoother and better than expected. Would gladly return any time!
Party of six-- 6 thumbs up!
The house was wonderful, spacious, and the view off the deck was fabulous. The driveway was tough, very steep. A large vehicle might have some problems manuvering in it.

this was a great place to stay, just a little far away from town
We loved the house, the spaciousness and large rooms. The grandchildren had the basement to themselves and loved that. We had a great time dining on the deck and enjoying the beautiful view. The only complaint we had was that it was so far away from everything and a very difficult route to follow after dark. Also, we had trouble with the gate opening several times. Fortunately each time an owner with remote appeared
peaceful beauty with lots of options for family fun
Gathering with our adult children and their significant others was relaxed and fun. For the price of two hotel rooms, the house allowed everyone to have their own space and had plenty of room for getting everyone together for a meal, a card game or just a relaxing morning on the deck. There were a wide variety of activities nearby and we enjoyed visiting asheville and the town of Black Mountain as well as hiking and driving the Blue Ridge Pkwy. We loved all the types of nature we were able to see from the deck including wild turkey chicks following their mom, exciting lightening storms and three bear cubs with their mother checking out the wild raspberries in the yard!
A great R & R
Beautifully appointed home, magnificent view, would like to return
