About Gene Christopher

We moved from Cleveland, OH to escape dreadful winters. We have fallen in love with the Black Mountain area and love what the mountains have to offer. We like to hike, camp, fish, or enjoy the ease of going in town to have drinks or catching a bite to eat. We are always available to help point you to local attractions.

Gene Christopher purchased this house in 2015

Why Gene Christopher chose Black Mountain

We have renovated our 1st floor to give guest a unique private stay. We have added pictures of local landmarks. The rented floor is not our everyday home so you will not be staying in all of our stuff. We have cleaned out the whole floor to make it open for your use.

What makes this house unique

We feel out house is in the perfect location. We are close but not too close to both Asheville and downtown Black Mountain. Our view is something that really adds value to any vacation

I loved their space! Everything was done in a way that made me feel cared about. A big living room with home theater capabilities, and mini kitchen that was perfectly stocked. Comfortable bed, great big bathroom and the coolest night light ever! The host Gene was warm and friendly, helpful and very respectful of my privacy. Just loved it all around!!
