About sherri mansell

Larry and Sherri live in south Florida with 4 children ages 12 to 25. Their parents live in NC and Georgia,and the family travels to western caroloinas as much as possible. They love the outdoor hiking, boating and many other activities.

sherri mansell purchased this cabin in 2011

Why sherri mansell chose Black Mountain

We wanted to be close to Asheville, a city with an airport, university and culture events, and also close to both parents in Geogia and NC. We love the quaint town of Black Mtn with great restaurants.

What makes this cabin unique

Biggest benefit is being only 10 minutes to town for food/gas/etc...and 20 minutes to the city of Asheville, BUT having a peaceful property with beautiful views and feeling like we are away from it all!!!

A Perfect Holiday Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

It could not have been a better Thanksgiving Holiday Getaway for our family and friends and we also celebrated our daughter's birthday which made it an extra special Holiday. The cabin and amenities exceeded our expectations and were all topped off with fresh fallen snow on Thanksgiving which was a real treat for a group of Floridian's (which we think may have been arranged by Sherri since she thought of everything else you may want or need for your stay). In addition to the beautiful cabin we also enjoyed the view of the mountains from the large porch and have fallen in love with the Town of Black Mountain (sorry Asheville we found a new love). We highly recommend this cabin to anyone and hope to return soon!

Howard & Jeri Hazard, family & friends

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed yourselves...we do certainly appreciate all the great restaurants and quaint town of Black Mtn...we rarely find the need to drive into Asheville. Look forward to hosting you again in the future.

Loved staying at The Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The Retreat was spacious, comfortable and the kitchen was well-stocked. Our family thoroughly enjoyed the games in basement, creek trails and exploring the property. We hope to return to Black Mountain and stay in one of the Highrock Cabins.

Beautiful cabin and views.

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is very nice. The kithcen is fully equipped and plenty of space to work in. Lots of bathroom space. The basement is an extra plus with bumper pool, ping pong table, and wine cellar/room. The hot tub on the deck with the views and sunrise are a must do.we had a wonderful time. Chimney rock and catawamba falls are beautiful. A extra note, the "straight away cafe" is nearby and offer good food at reasonable prices. We will definetly come back.

Clean, great view, awesome gameroom, big hot tub

  • 5 of 5

This place was AWESOME!! Has a lot of stuff you might need aka coffee pot, crockpot, icemaker, air mattresses. If I was to fault anything, it would be the drive up the mountain... make sure you have 4wd in case it rains!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! This cabin is a great mountain getaway with all the comforts of home. We are 10 minutes off the highway, and at the end there is a 1.5 mile gravel road to the property that is graded on a regular basis. Although the road is a little jerky and does develop bumps from use and weather conditions, it is very safe and the nature paradise at the end is worth the trip! We, the owners, only have 2-wheel drive vehicles and have never had any issues. Four-wheel drive is only required late December to February for snow/ice conditions.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Highrock Retreat! The convenient, yet private location allowed us to visit Asheville and surrounding areas during the day, and enjoy the cabin in the evenings.
