About Sherri Mansell

My husband and I have 4 children ages 12 - 25 and live in South Florida. We have vacationed in western NC for over 25 years where my parents have a home.

Sherri Mansell purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Sherri Mansell chose Black Mountain

We chose this location in Black Mountain because it's a very quaint town with great restaurants and so close to the city of Asheville with airport, universities and culture events.

What makes this cabin unique

What we love best about our property is that we are located in the mountains surrounded by nature but have the luxuries of home and only 10 minutes to the grocery store and other amenities.

Great Vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the greatest time at the Preserve cabin! We loved staying there. It was so spacious it allowed us to take another family along with us. The cabin was beyond clean. It really had everything we could have asked for. The property was Awesome! We loved taking hikes along the trails on the property. I even got to relax and hangout in the hammock and read. After hiking and running around all day, the jacuzzi was a super plus! The location is perfect. Asheville was so close and there were so many fun activities around. We ended up going Zip Lining and another park for a TreeTop Adventure. The whole family had a blast and everyone participated. It is the perfect vacation for all ages. (My kids are 11, 14 and 16) We loved going to town which was 10 minutes away and we had really good meals. We loved the Ale House and they had a band playing great music, it was fun. In addition to eating out, we also enjoyed cooking in your kitchen because it has everything. I even needed a blender for one of my meals and you had it in the cabin. We really enjoyed both staying in and going out to eat. I was concerned before we got there that we would not have internet but your wifi worked perfectly so when I needed to work on my computer, I was able to get through everything quickly without problems so I could go back and enjoy my family on our vacation. It is a beautiful Cabin. It was a Great Vacation and it was because we stayed at the most perfect place! The HighRock Preserve!!!!!! We can't wait to go back!!!!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed yourselves! Yes, Western Carolina has activities for children and adults of all ages. Nothing better than luxury living surrounded by nature! Today I saw a family of geese in the pond.

Our two familys (5+4) had a wonderful time. The cabin has all of the modern amenities, and the sleeping accommodations are very comfortable. The property is also really nice, especially the outdoor firepit. There are a couple of nice trails on the property - perfect for younger kids because they're not very long. If you are looking for longer/more aggressive hiking, do some research to find some local trails.

Owner's Response: We enjoy hearing that our guests had a wonderful time and enjoyed the trails on the property. If you are looking for longer trials, we recommend Chimney Rock or Montreat trails, both 20 minutes from our property as well as many others in the area.

Scenic woodland retreat

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is in a lovely setting with a very well appointed kitchen. We enjoyed the hot tub, although it took a little while to figure out hot to turn off the jets (there’s no evident power button). We met the property manager when we arrived, and she was very nice and helpful giving bear advice. :) We had everything we needed for a women’s retreat.
