You will have a carefree stay with the fully-appointed kitchen, two private bedrooms, two baths, and a day bed for extra guests in the sunroom.

Owner info

About the owner: The Azalea House is Loraine's childhood home. Her family has been in the North Fork Valley since the early 1800's. She and her husband Johnny raised their four children in the valley and continue to live there today.

Why the Owner Chose Black Mountain:
Love grows best in little houses and this little home has held a lot of love over the decades. It is wonderful to see it not sitting empty and to know that others are now getting to enjoy it's peaceful setting and charming atmosphere.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Cozy, Peaceful, Comfortable, Quiet, Charming, and Homey are the most frequently used words to describe the Azalea House. Guests comment most often on enjoying listening to or even playing in the stream and gathering around the firepit at night to roast marshmallows. The scenery and tranquility of the valley is spectacular anytime of the year.
