About Martha Bryan Wight

I am a native of the region and once lived at this residence. My mother lived in this home until her mid 90's and she encouraged visitors walking by to sit with her on the front porch. The garden area in the backyard serves several families and carries on the tradition of vegetable gardening Helen's way. . She would be delighted to know that people stay in her home to celebrate birthdays, friendship, reunions, and even weddings. I carry on her Southern hospitality and attitude, hoping I make friends with each of my renters.

Martha Bryan Wight purchased this house in 2008

Why Martha Bryan Wight chose Blue Ridge Mountains

Growing up in Black Mountain makes me a proud native. I inherited this property from my mother and want to keep the house alive until I am in a position to return to it full time.

What makes this house unique

The location is perfect. Walking to shop or dine is so easy because downtown is just one block away and the recreation center is just a stroll to the lake and tennis courts. You can feel the energy of living in-town by sitting on the front porch or just move to the deck and drink in the mountain views. An expansive living room makes the house feel spacious and the eat in kitchen allows for a cook to be with guest and create a dinner together. Newly refinished hardwood floors adds a newness and walls are freshly painted. Helen's offers in town activities with a view. A new fee is to be added to the rate to cover the expenses of VRBO> A 9% service fee will be added to the rental rate.

The house is perfect for a family vacation and we had everything we needed for a great week. The house is clean, comfortable with plenty of space. Loved being able to walk to shops and dinner.We have stayed at Helens 3 or 4 times and are already talking about returning in the spring. Love the town of Black Mountain!

Very nice house and manager

  • 5 of 5

I was in Black Mountain for a wedding and stayed at Helen's Place for the weekend. The house was very clean, had everything we needed, and was in a great location walking distance to downtown Black Mountain. The woman managing the property was very responsive and kind. I would definitely recommend this place and if I'm ever in Black Mountain again I'll try to stay here!

Owner's Response: Thank you Travis. for your kind words. I wish the weather had been better and I hope you took my offer of not checking out early. I do hope you will come back and bring friends too. .I am glad I came through as friendly since I did not actually get to speak with you on the phone. I always wonder how I present myself over the internet. (without that human voice ) !

quiet place and great walk into town for meals-1 block away!

  • 5 of 5

We love Helen's place. It was convenient to restaurants and shopping in town. We love the individual artisan shops with homemade pottery, jewelry and almost every night there is live music in the local restaurants!!!!

The cottage was roomy and spacious with a large deck to enjoy!

We have stayed here twice and have loved it each time. Within walking distance of the lake and the downtown area. The neighborhood is friendly, safe, and beautiful. We always enjoy our stay here and we hope to come back very soon.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Helen's Place once again welcomed me with open arms! I look forward to each stay there while visiting family in the area and am never disappointed. The location is perfect! Short walk down the block, past a wonderful bakery and lunch spot, to the charming village of Black Mountain with shops of every description. Stroll the other way to Lake Toxaway. Couldn't be a better spot for day trips to Asheville, Lake Lure, etc. I look forward to my next visit! Thanks, Martha!
