Black Mountain cabin description

Enjoy our private mountain retreat while still close to the amenities of Black Mountain and Asheville. Ideal for two to four couples and family groups of 4-6 adults with children, our pet friendly Chalet is located on 15 wooded acres in the Brushy mountains above the town of Swannanoa, 10 miles East of Asheville and 10 miles West of Black Mountain. At 2550 feet, our view is of Three Brothers Mountain and the Bee Tree Valley.

The First Floor Master Bedroom features a King Bed, flat screen TV, en-suite bath and a private entrance to the four-person hot tub on the enclosed sun porch. Two additional bedrooms (1 King, 1 Queen) on the second floor and the Loft (Full Futon) overlooking the Great Room make the Chalet great for families. Children love climbing the spiral stair in the East (King) Bedroom up to the loft play area with a single bed/mini-futon. The West (Queen) Bedroom has a flat screen TV, a baby crib and sliding glass doors to the second story deck.

The Great Room with Gas log fireplace, sitting area and dining area has a full southern view through the 16 foot sliding glass doors and glass wall. The Kitchen has everything you will need to prepare your meals; a full complement of cookware, large and small appliances, two china services, crystal and daily use glassware, table linens and plenty of cutlery. Relax and enjoy the outdoors on our large 16x50 deck with a gas grill, picnic table and lots of chairs. On the adjoining West Patio is a patio set with an umbrella for dining al fresco. When evening falls, roast marshmallows in the fire pit!

Hike up to the top of the mountain with your pet to enjoy the view of the Brushy Mountains and the Bee Tree Valley below. Wander down to the ford (stream) at the driveway entrance and enjoy our little waterfall!

We are 3 miles from Warren Wilson College, and within 10 miles of Montreat, Lake Eden, Ridgecrest Conference Center, Rockmont, Timberlake, MerriMac and the Billy Graham Conference Center.

Convenient to grocery stores, gas stations, banking and restaurants. A 4 wheel drive vehicle is not required to reach Asheville Lookout for most of the year; may be necessary for winter rentals. Security resident on-site, housekeeper and maintenance available.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: We built the Chalet in 2005 on acreage we bought from Lorna's father (Brett's Falling Waters Cabin) for our eventual retirement from our jobs in Northern Virginia. We love the tranquility and privacy of our home, as well as it's closeness to shopping, restaurants, and the entertainment offered by Black Mountain and Asheville. We hope that our guests enjoy their visit to our home as much as we do!
