Why Andrea Bell chose Laurel Ridge
It all began as a quick weekend mountain vacation with our three children. We fell in love with the simplicity of a mountain vacation. No fuss, no schedules. After taking numerous vacations to the NC mountains and renting homes in all different areas with a variety of views, we finally visited Black Mountain and fell in love. The charm is the town of Black Mountain itself and its' proximity to the fine dining and shopping in Asheville, the numerous outdoor activities available and the ease of coming and going with easy access from I-40. It was a perfect fit.
What makes this House unique
We discovered Laurel Ridge, a gated community that still felt like a retreat. We decided to purchase this home because it offered the views we had fallen in love with, but also a yard where our children could run and play and we could host cookouts and marshmallow roasts galore! It had it all. The home has a rustic stone fireplace, wood floors and tongue/groove wood ceilings that give that mountain feel to our vacations. We love coming at all different times of the year, enjoying horseback riding, white water rafting, hiking, scenic leaf changes and cool, crisp weather. As high as we are, the temperature is usually 5-10 degrees cooler than the town area!
Sports & Adventure Activities
Lovely mountain home
House is gorgeous and the views are even better! Beds were super comfy and the kitchen had everything we could need for meal prep. Drive up to the home is a bit steep and curvy and I highly recommend getting there during the day if possible for the first drive up.
Had a great trip!
This is a beautiful home! Views are amazing. Lots of space and comfortable beds.
Only concerns were there were a lot of dead mice in the basement. Also, there were many burnt out light bulbs and the house needs a good deep cleaning.
Glad you had great Christmas stay! Yes, mountain nice try hard to get in during the cold weather but we have treatment at the home. Glad to hear they were stopped in the garage! Some bulbs too just get loose and need to be turned slightly, but bulbs are changed when out. Cleaners are there between all visits but I will send a note for detailed attention. Happy New Year!
Beautiful Home and amenities..
We rented this mountain home for Thanksgiving. Tons of space for all of us. Nice large kitchen, amazing views. Not sure what to say other than if you are looking for a great place to get away from it all this is it.
We have always wanted to have Thanksgiving there! So happy you did and enjoyed the peaceful getaway. Please come back again! Happy Holidays
Fantastic location and perfect for families
The location of the house is perfect even though it is about a 12-15 minute uphill drive from Black Mountain so your car needs to be able to handle the steep inclines. We could easily get to Black Mountain and then into Asheville as well. The house had plenty of room for two families that included 5 small children, and the views of the mountains and lake were great. Andrea was very easy to communicate with and I would highly recommend this house to everyone that wants to "get away" for a long weekend like us but still have the convenience to be close enough to plenty of restaurants and shops. We would definitely like to return in the near future.
Thrilled that you discovered both the adorable town of Black Mountain and city of Asheville. Everything you need or want to do is nearby. Most of all, we are are so glad you enjoyed your getaway. Fall in the Blue Ridge mountains is just beautiful! We welcome you back any time.
Talk about living on top of a mountain! This property is way up a steep road in a gated community and once you get to the top, you appreciate why the house was built so high up :) The house has an incredible view of the mountains and lake down at the bottom. Inside - there's a great fireplace and multiple bedrooms/nooks to hang out.
Glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes, we love the scenery and truly feel like we can get away when we visit this home. Serenity and beauty...what more can you ask for? Please stay with us again!
Perfect fall getaway
Black Mountain was charming and had everything we needed. Also enjoyed heading 20 minutes to Asheville for a nice dinner. The weather was perfect, great hiking in Montreat. The leaves are starting to change and we had some nice crisp weather. The house is in a gated neighborhood with lovely views and privacy during our stay. Thank you!
So glad you enjoyed your stay. We welcome you to stay again!
