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!
