Montreat house description
Perched on a steep slope with two levels of decks overlooking Rainbow and Lookout Mountains, our house is close to the center of Montreat but relatively secluded on its private road. The top level has a great room with a 15' high wall of windows with southern exposure, the master bedroom with large windows, bath, kitchen, sitting area, and decks on front and back. A wood stove provides warmth on even the coldest days. The front deck feels high in the trees. The middle level has two bedrooms, full bath, sitting area, kitchenette and covered deck, delightful for sitting or dining on rainy days, or sunny days.
The master bedroom on the top level has a four poster rustic king bed and a double futon in a sitting area. Downstairs, one bedroom has a double bed and the other has a bunk bed. The sitting area also has a pull out sofa. Both full baths have bathtubs with shower.
Close to Asheville and Black Mountain, but worlds away, Montreat is a place like no other. Montreat is a town with no stoplights and very minimal retail spaces. Originally a church conference and retreat center, it is still that but much more as well: an historic vacation home development, a college, and a town of 730 permanent residents. Almost everyone inside the old Montreat gate is there to relax, or study, or to be in the outdoors. Summer bustles with conferences and young people from all over, and the rest of the year a quiet descends. Take a stroll, sit by the streams, and listen to the waterfall. Or put on the hiking boots and climb to the crest of the Blue Ridge proper above our house, or continue more ambitiously as far as Blue Ridge Pinnacle or even Mt. Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Rockies. Then relax back at the house, or venture out of the Montreat gate for a short trip to the the excellent restaurants in Black Mountain or Asheville.

Kids will love the opportunity to run up and down stairs, to climb to the loft, and generally explore. Small children must be supervised because of steep ladder to the loft, and height of decks....moreless

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We are a busy family with three children who love the outdoors.
Why the Owner Chose Montreat:
I grew up spending idyllic summers in Montreat, where I met many lifelong friends. There is no better place for children. And it's the best of both possible worlds, it's close to world class sightseeing in Asheville, but closer to truly extensive conservation lands and good summits.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We're close to the center of Montreat but relatively secluded. It's a short walk to Lake Susan, the swimming pool, the playground, and the tennis courts. Conservation land is both in front and behind our house. There's no need to drive to access the great walks and hiking that abounds.
