Wonderful Peaceful Weekend in Montreat
Had a wonderful time in Montreat regardless of the weather, even with chilling temperatures and wet weather, our stay was comfortable and relaxing. The home was everything we hoped it would be, the Hudsons were extremely nice and polite, and had the home ready for us upon our arrival. We are so pleased and look forward to our next opportunity to stay in the Black Mountain area, we will definitely be contacting them again.
Clean, cozy, and in a great location.
We had a great time staying here. The house was close to everything Black Mountain has to offer. A short drive got us to Asheville and the downtown scene.
Overall the house was in great condition, the heating worked perfectly in the cold weather. No complaints.
Thanks Wilson, glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will consider us the next time you “head to the hills!”
Great old house, but lots of problems!
We arrived at Montreat Respite House on Sunday the 10th of Sept. at about 4:00 pm. Around 6 pm it started to get chilly and I went to the thermostat to turn the heat on. Nothing happened; so I made my first call to the property manager. He told me the heat did not work, but there were 2 space heaters and plenty of blankets. We got the space heaters going knowing there was no way they would be able to warm a big old 2 story house. We found the blankets, but they were so musty smelling so we had to wash them. Upon opening the washer lid we found a load of towels and sheets that were never dried and had soured. They too had to be washed again. There was also a load in the dryer that had not been put up. We made it thru the night and warmed ourselves the next morning in front of the kitchen stove. That afternoon the wind picked up and the electricity went out. I called the manager again and he came by and said he would report the problem to Duke Power. Meanwhile there was plenty of firewood to build a fire in the fireplace. Later that day we tried to make a fire, but the wood was stacked outside and was too wet to burn. We ended up going into town and buying $50 worth of firewood. That night we sat by the fireplace and took our candles to bed. We spent the next day in Black Mountain until late afternoon when we were informed that the power was back on at the house. The next two days were pretty much the same: sleeping with a space heater in the bedroom, taking a shower with a space heater in the bathroom and warming up in the morning by the kitchen stove. When it was time to clean and lock up the last instruction was to put the trash outside in the trash cans. I wasn't surprised that the trash from the last tenants was still in the trash cans!
I am not usually a complainer, but I strongly feel we should have at least a 50% refund on this transaction. We own rental property ourselves and there is no way in the world we would turn a house over to tenants in the shape this house was in! Nor would we keep it a secret that there is no functioning heating system.

There were problems with travelers stay. The party evidently came to the mountains to escape possible ramifications from Hurricane Irma in Savannah, Ga. They failed to realized that there was the possibility we could also have affects, which we did. High winds from Irma caused downed trees in the neighborhood, which involved downed power lines behind the house and loss of power for a night and most of next day. When the power was knocked out, I offered travelers the option of going elsewhere and working out a refund with them. They decided against that option. Also, writer fails to mention that it was clearly disclosed in the listing that the home had no central heat and that space heaters that would normally be sufficient in early fall. The Irma effect also made for unseasonably cooler temperatures. As is the case most of the time, there are two sides to every story.
Black Mountain is home to 3 craft beer breweries, Black Mountain Brewery, Pisgah Brewing, and Lookout Brewery. There is a splash pad located in the town square park . House is within walking distance to all Montreat Conference Center activities, the nationally recognized Biltmore House and Grove Park Inn Spa are both 20 minutes away in Asheville.
