Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I were in Black Mountain enjoying a weekend of obstacle course racing. The Hide-Away was only a few minutes from that site. The owners were attentive to making sure we (guests) had all we needed. The place really was a hide-away, perfect for time alone and relaxation. The place was quite spacious and had lots of exercise equipment. The best experience was driving up the driveway to encounter a mama bear with four (4) baby cubs enjoying the apple trees. Too beautiful.

In my opinion, this is a great location for adventure seekers, romantic getaways, and relaxation.

Hightop Hide-Away is an amazing find!

  • 5 of 5

High Top Hide-Away was an amazing find! It is located close to downtown Black Mountain and the roads needed for adventures in Ashville or the many beautiful forests in the area, yet it is located in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood, away from noise and busy-ness. And the view is of beautiful woods and gardens.

The apartment offered a lot of comfortable space and amenities, including a fireplace in the living area and a large private porch. It was a relaxing place to "come home" to.

And, even though the host family was upstairs, I never felt that I didn't have complete privacy.

The most amazing part was the host, Mary Beth. She made me feel more like a friend staying for a visit than a renter. She gave me a warm welcome, helped with luggage, and had snacks waiting for me in the kitchen. She had really useful information on the area, and made it clear that she was available if I had questions or if help was needed. She even texted me during my stay just to check on me.

I was at Hightop for a full week, so I feel sure mine was an authentic experience of the place, and I am very comfortable recommending it.

Private, scenic getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at High Top Hide-Away was exceptional, we loved the quiet, private setting and all the amenities that made it feel like a home including the kitchenette that we could do meals in if we wanted. Our hosts, were very helpful and we liked that we could communicate with them via text message with any questions or for checking out. A great place to stay that permitted short trips to Asheville, The Blue Ridge Parkway or to just relax in the mountains!

My wife and I both feel this was an outstanding experience and the place was beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was much much better than we expected. The hospitality by the owners and their open communication to ensure we had a great stay was excellent. The living area was very open and welcoming, and had lots of room. The porch was private allowing us to enjoy cocktails at a table on the covered deck and watch the sunset. This place is in excellent condition and the views and set-up allow for great relaxation and fun. It has more than the typical hotel room and we highly recommend if you are wanting a getaway, this should be tops on your list. Don't let the pictures fool you, when you drive up the driveway and then walk down to the private living area, you quickly realize this place is a lot better than what we saw on-line. Another great part of our stay was the convenience to be within minutes of Black Mountain shops and restaurants. Give the High Top Hide-Away a shot, you will not be disappointed.

Feels like home!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed a very relaxing stay at this property. It was a perfect location nestled in the hills and just a few mins. from downtown Black Mountain and 16 mins into Asheville. Catawba Falls is nearby as well in Old Fort.

The apartment is well furnished, very roomy, and clean. It felt like home away from home. We sat outside every morning at the table shown enjoying coffee and breakfast that we cooked on the grill. Even watched the meteor shower from the porch in the early morning hours. Wanted to see a bear but maybe next time!

The hosts, Mary and Tim, were exceptionally gracious. We highly recommend this location if your'e in the area!
