Black Mountain estate description

Welcome to the Chateau! We look forward to sharing our home with you. We are perfectly remote (centrally located between Black Mtn and Chimney Rock/Lake Lure), yet offer all the modern conveniences you want (yes, wifi) whilst on vacation. We're here to make your booking experience a smooth and easy one! As an added benefit we have and Estate Representative available should you wish to have any additional services added during your stay. Please read more info below and feel free to contact us!

Are you tired of playing the guessing game as to what your vacation home is actually going to look like or have you heard horror stories about seeing one listing and showing up to something completely different (or worse, experienced it)? Are you tired of renting a property and arriving to find that the rooms are bland, the furniture is cheap, and there aren’t even the basic necessities like pots and pans in the house? Lastly, are you tired of inquiring to a Vacation Rental by ‘Owner’ and getting automated responses from a rental company who says ‘that one isn’t available’ but they offer you out a whole bunch of other ‘rental mill’ properties?
Well, we are none of the above, and more importantly we respect you as being the person in charge of giving your friends and family a wonderful experience in the mountains. Like yourself, we’re real people and we’re proud to offer you our home (exactly as represented!) in the mountains - the Chateau de Vue - along with all of the estate-quality accommodations and finishes that you deserve in a luxury vacation home.

There are four distinct bedroom suites each with a private full bath and a unique theme, as well as a 'dungeon' with twin beds for the kids. These are not hotel rooms; they are large, decorated, well appointed rooms that you can escape to when you’re ready to relax on your own or settle down for the night. Bed sheets and bath towels are provided. Each of the rooms provides a unique ‘experience’, be it the Victorian Room with its Juliet Balcony and 1890’s Victorian claw-foot tub; the Mountain Room with a laurel branch ceiling and a recessed ‘rain tile’ shower; or perhaps you will have the Master Suite consisting of 1200 square feet, a truly decadent bathroom and a sitting room with two wicker lounge chairs overlooking the mountains. No matter where you are staying in the Chateau, you have something uniquely yours and memories that you can tell in stories for years to come.

The main gathering spaces of the Chateau are equally ordained with two full service kitchens (the main having all Viking appliances), a 65 inch HD LED TV in great room with Dish Network, a huge recreation room stocked with a full-size pool table, hurricane foosball table, 1000 chip poker set, shuffleboard table, , board games, 42' LCD as well as a 58' plasma TV dedicated for video games (bring your own system) or DVDs. Like the bedroom suites each main room contains comfortable high-end furniture and decorations for you to relax on or entertain in.

The Chateau rests on a peaceful and quiet mountaintop location with one of the best drives in Western NC as your approach. If you are looking for simple relaxation and a beautiful view, this is the place. You’re still close to town and in a relatively centralized location to go in different directions and explore or tour.

The Chateau’s Sleeping Layout is as follows: (Sleeps 12 in beds)
- Master Bedroom (1st floor): King TempurPedic, private bath (Sleeps two).
- Mountain Suite: Queen TempurPedic,private bath (Sleeps two).
- Castle Loft: Queen bed, bunk bed (2 singles), private bath (great for a family, sleeps four).
- Victorian Suite: Queen bed, private bath (truly fit for a Queen, sleeps two).
- The 'Dungeon' (Rec Room) converts to a Suite with private bath, two twins (Great for groups of kids/teens since they can play until they fall asleep!)

The Chateau gives you the chance to get away in style to the mountains of North Carolina with over 6000 square feet of living area on 60 acres of private land for less per night than it would cost you to get just two hotel rooms in town! The views are truly phenomenal, not just 'long range', but a full 180 degree panoramic during the day and then at night not only are the stars brilliant, but the back-lit mountains simply wonderful! You can enjoy this from the privacy of your back porch or from your third story tower! This property has everything you and your guests need in true estate quality and finishes. There is plenty of private land to tromp around on and hike (primitive trails) or camp. There is also plenty of parking which, in the mountains, can be a very hard thing to come by.

Black Mountain, North Carolina, known as the 'front porch' of western North Carolina (just drive by the Chamber of Commerce office on East State Street to its larger-than-life front-porch rocker!). Black Mountain is known for its small town atmosphere, one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants ranging from barbeque to gourmet. And its year-round calendar of cultural and civic events keeps both visitors and residents active. Black Mountain, North Carolina, is encompassed by the mountains, much of which are protected lands, and there there are retreat sites owned by several denominational churches (nearby is The Billy Graham Training Center at Cove).
