AVL 15 min. away. Luxury Queen Serta BeautyRest bed, kitchenette, winter views, high-quality linens, towels, full bath, coffee.

A safe haven. My world-travelling aunt calls it "just like a Parisian apartment." The apartment is complete unto itself with all amenities.

You are renting a cozy penthouse with forested views from every window and your own private entrance and deck. It is the entire upstairs of my home, separate unto itself, keyed entrance. Peaceful, mountain presence, 2 miles from Black Mountain town center and 12 mi. from Asheville. New Whirlpool /washer/dryer, small kitchen with four-burner electric stove, small sink, small fridge, wi-fi, 40" Samsung TV with Netflix and Amazon Prime. New Beautyrest Sleep Perfection Queen mattress, high-quality linens. Writing desk under a window. Perfect for inspiration and reflection, restoring the spirit.

No cable TV but rather a 40" Smart TV with Amazon Prime and Netflix.

SECURE: Our quiet street is a short neighborhood road with few houses on it, and extremely safe ( Black Mountain is one of the safest towns in the country, per a recent study.)

VINTAGE / MODERN: Our large, 1950s lodge-like home has modern updates including hot water on demand so you'll never run out, a new HVAC system, modern radon system, Hepa air filters, and a backup generator.

NATURE: Walk down your private entrance to the moss-filled, brick-lined meditation path in front, or sit by the babbling fishpond.

EXERCISE:See photos, Use our cruiser bicycles to cycle 3 blocks to the local Community Garden which connects to the Black Mountain Greenway which leads into the town center of Black Mountain, about a 12-minute bicycle ride.

Quiet, hidden neighborhood that's a 10-min drive to trails on Blue Ridge Parkway, Ridgecrest, Catawba Falls, also near the Veteran's Affairs Hospital. When you book, I email you a list of my favorite local places to hike, visit and eat, both here in Black Mountain and in Asheville. (I'm an NC native.)

This wonderful house was built by an Episcopal Bishop and sold to an Episcopal priest who came fresh from an English monastery, and has had more than four decades of prayer and quietude in and around it.

We send orientation info in advance, do our best to greet you when you arrive, orient you, and then leave you to the wonderful Blue Ridge Mountains. I respect that most folks want their own private time but if you want to ask me anything in person just let me know and I'll do my best!

About Property Manager/Owner

I am in my fifth year as a vacation owner "SuperHost," because I love making travelers happy. My adventures on Kauai, HI, taught us that life is all about sharing with others and finding great moments in every moment. I welcome international travelers. I have a quiet home surrounded by greenery and birdsong. I love to laugh.

My life motto is, "All we really have is this moment." I am a biographer. I want your visit here to be absolutely perfectly wonderful.

I am the mother of three adult kids and the grandmother of four awesome grandkids and I love family.

Cute Efficiency in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this cute efficiency apartment! Our hostess ensured we had all we needed for our stay and we were very comfortable. The location is great for hiding away and for homebase to explore the area. So much to see and do. We’d definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: We love helping you make great memories! Our fall colors emerged while you were here- golds, fuscia, rust, cranberry- glad you were part of that also. Happy trails!
