About Merry Spencer

We have been wanting a home in a walkable neighborhood. We live in Asheville and though we love it- it is not walkable to many of the restaurants, grocery stores etc. But this home will likely be where we retire eventually and it is perfect. We also feel strongly about our pets. Both rescued: Yancey and Rosie so we wanted a pet welcoming home.

Merry Spencer purchased this House in 2017

Why Merry Spencer chose Black Mountain

Brand new listing- My family lives nearby and we wanted a place for friends to come visit. And when it is not being used why not extend our definition of friends to those we haven't met yet. This is such a great location and everything is walkable so it is just too good not to share. And though it is dog friendly, we have many folks without pets who love the location and amenities.

What makes this House unique

House is located in a quiet residential neighborhood in downtown Black Mountain. It is perfect for relaxing but close enough to downtown and the heart of Black Mountain is just a few blocks away. You can relax on the back deck, or explore the town and greater surroundings. The best of both worlds!

                                                                  Donna M.

                                                                  This house is adorable and so convienent to downtown Black Mountain. The house was clean, well stocked, and had a great back yard for the dog. We will definitely stay at Merry's next time we visit!

                                                                  The cottage uper clean, nicely arranged for coming back at the end of a busy day and relaxing.

                                                                  barbara m.

                                                                  We drove 8 hours and needless to say arrived unsure of what we might find. Merry Station gave us a delightful welcome, including fresh flowers and chocolates! There was a 16 year old, his Dad and we, his grandparents. The open space gave each of us a place to read, watch tv, use our devices and check out visitor brochures. The placement of the bathrooms, both available to all three bedrooms, for our different age groups was a plus as was the walk-in shower for we older folks. The bed sizes worked out perfectly. There were plenty of dishes, glasses and whatever else we needed in the kitchen. A grocery store and gas station were nearby and a number of delicious looking restaurants were within a pleasant walk. The huge deck would have been a pleasure if it had been a bit warmer :-( I would certainly us Merry Station again as a home base when visiting Asheville. Thank you, Merry, for your warm hospitality!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  I am so glad it worked out for all of you. And you really should come back when it is warmer and you can enjoy the deck!

                                                                  Happy Visit in the Mountains

                                                                  Carol R.

                                                                  We loved Merry's home. Very clean, comfy, updated. It was very warm for November. AC didn't work, she had someone there immediately to get it working. I cooked a big meal and would have like a few more kitchen items to cook with... made a cake in a soup pot. ( ha ha )Loved the fence in yard and deck and my pup couldn't have been happier. We would go back... very pleased. House is in a very congested neighborhood where parking was limited. Very short drive to mountains for hiking and activities. Black Mountain had wonderful shops and several things to do. Overall very pleased!!!!!!!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Nice Accomodations for Humans & Pets

                                                                  William U.

                                                                  The house is very comfortable. Bed is very cozy! The location is great for restaurants, hiking, horseback riding and golf. The yard is good for dogs. Smaller dogs might be able to slip through one area of the fence. Nice selection of reading material. Would come back without hesitation.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Fun with our daughter-in-law and granddaughter

                                                                  Mark M.

                                                                  We met our daughter-in-law and granddaughter at Merry Station on 10/10/17 through 10/15/17 in Black Mountain, NC for a fun getaway. We visited the Biltmore estate on Wednesday and Thursday and it was so convenient to Merry Station, only 20 minutes or so. We enjoyed having the three bedrooms and two baths for our party of four adults and one child. The kitchen was well stocked and enjoyed being able to not have to eat out all the time. The location is very convenient to many area attractions. We enjoyed the large back deck with our granddaughter! We would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for 3 bedroom/2 bath house close to Asheville, but want a quaint little town feel.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Wonderful Vacation Spot!

                                                                  This home was a wonderful spot for our Black Mountain stay. It is within walking distance of the shops and restaurants. It is also close to two grocery stores, so you'll be able to pick up some groceries to use in the well-stocked kitchen.

                                                                  The beds were very comfortable. With 4 people in our party, it was a blessing to have two bathrooms available. The only thing I could recommend to add would be a small radio in at least one of the bedrooms. It was almost too quiet when trying to fall asleep.

                                                                  I have never seen such a dog-friendly vacation property. There were dog treats, special dog towels, and a fenced in back yard. We felt bad leaving our pup at home on this trip and will consider bring her next time.

                                                                  We loved our stay and will definitely be back! Thank you for sharing your home!

                                                                  Owner's Response:
