About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

Sweet mountain cottage built in 2006.

Experience a carefree stay in this well appointed house located within the quaint town of Black Mountain. Enjoy the porch swing or rocking chairs on the front porch, or on back porch with large dining table which sits up in the trees! In the great room relax with the gas fireplace, just off the Master Suite.

Dine on back porch just off modern kitchen. The cozy living area is large enough for the entire group to enjoy at the same time, just adjacent to the kitchen with breakfast bar.

Especially popular is the separate downstairs den w/ kid's corner stocked with toys, books, and games for all ages. Here also find a card table, 2nd TV w/ DVD and video library. Ping Pong is just adjacent, completing the game area. Also in the den a futon sleeps overflow for 2. This area has 2 large windows looking out to the fenced, well landscaped back yard. Fenced-in yard and doggie door make this home the perfect spot for bringing your beloved pet!

Upstairs find 2 comfortable bedrooms with a private full bath. #1 Bedroom has Queen bed. #2 has 2 twin beds. Master Suite with queen bed on main floor has 2 separate vanity areas, and full bath.

Unique to this property is the quick walk (7 min.) to Lake Tomahawk where one can find a walking trail w/ great mountain views, a playground, state of the art public pool, fishing and tennis. Be sure to bring some bread for the geese and ducks!

Or, walk 10 minutes more to downtown Black Mountain where the pace is slower, but it overflows with art and craft galleries, antiques, and nightlife. Visitors and natives attest that the mountain spirit is truly alive in this community.

A 15-20 minute drive will take you to Asheville, Biltmore Estate, Chimney Rock, or Lake Lure. So come visit us @ the oldest mountain range on Earth! It's an experience you will not soon forget.

Please note: The short driveway is paved and a bit steep.

We had a great stay at Sweet Hydrangea during a short visit to Black Mountain. The home was clean and everything worked as described in the advertisement. The kitchen was well stocked, and we appreciated the extra sheets and towels. We had a 2 and 4 year olds with us and they really loved the kids corner in the basement. The only problem we had was the steep driveway with one of our rear wheel drive vehicles. There is no parking on the street so everyone has to fit in the driveway - even if your car has difficulty getting up the hill. Black Mountain is a really cute town and we enjoyed several of the restaurants and shops. Remember to bring your toiletries and paper goods because only one roll of toilet paper and one roll of paper towels and one small bottle of body gel is provided even though there are multiple bathrooms in the house.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great time at Sweet Hydrangea! It had plenty of room for our little extended family, including two toddlers, parents, and grandparents, and we loved how easily we could get to everything. We were able to walk to a playground, the lake, and out for coffee (Dynamite and Dripolator) and biscuits (Blue Ridge Biscuit Company)! We also made it into Asheville, and over to Montreat, both of which were easy drives. The neighborhood was very cute and the house was very kid friendly, with toys and a highchair, and no tempting things for them to get into. We loved being able to relax out on the deck after they were in bed. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

Reviewer Comments:

We spent a long weekend in Black Mountain with our adult son and girlfriend who live nearby. The house was extremely clean, roomy, quiet, nicely landscaped, and well stocked. It is close to downtown, Tomahawk Lake, and numerous hiking trails. The driveway is steep, but we had no problems getting in and out with Yukon or our son's Subaru. We enjoyed good meals from My Father's Pizza, Trailhead, and Native Kitchen. We also enjoyed post-hike beverages at Lookout and Pisgah Brewing. The staff at Greybeard Rentals provided excellent customer service and communication. Checking in and out was very easy. I would recommend Sweet Hydrangea and Greybeard Rentals without hesitation. The Greybeard app is very helpful.

Excellent Rental Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was one of the most well stocked vacation rentals in which we have stayed. It is a clean home with plenty of gathering space indoors and out. The property is very well landscaped, as well. Everything in the house was in good working order. We stayed here with our adult son and girlfriend (Asheville residents) for a long weekend hiking trip. From the reviews I read, a common complaint is the steep driveway. It is steep, but we had been warned by the reviews and rental agency of this. We had no problems getting in or out of the driveway (in forward or reverse) in my Yukon, and neither did my son who drives a Subaru with a fairly low profile. The neighborhood was quiet, and there was very little traffic on the street. It is close to downtown, Tomahawk Lake, Swannanoa, and many great (and challenging) hiking trails. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sweet Hydrangea, and we will stay here again.
