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.

Beautiful cabin with a great View.

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed the cabin. It was well decorated, clean and comfortable. We loved the game room and Jacuzzi. The evenings were nice sitting on the porch as the sun set.

Top notch vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

The Highrock Retreat has it all. It is located within a well secluded area just far enough away from everything, but just close enough in proximity (15 mins) to the essentials - grocery store/fuel station/highway/restaurants/Starbucks. The home is functionally laid out and provides everything from a relaxing soak in the balcony hot tub with a panoramic view to a large, fully loaded game room in the basement. All the bedding, furniture and appliances are high end, first class and well maintained. It is clear that the owners truly care about the quality of the home and keeping it up to date and nicely decorated. Everything here is first class!! We had 6 in our party and were very comfortable, and more importantly never ran short on hot water....

The DirecTV is very reliable, however the internet leaves a bit to be desired in the way of speed - BUT that is not by any means a reason to consider staying elsewhere. The WiFi is more than fast enough to stream music while in the jacuzzi, check email and the like.

Lastly, we have stayed at many rental homes of similar luxury/price. Unquestionably, the owners of this property have been the most reasonable with respect to the check in/check out process. You will not only find the property clean and orderly upon your arrival, but you also will not be surprised with anything inconvenient like having to haul your trash away upon departure, etc.

We will definitely return to this property next time vacationing in the area. You can count on the description in the advertisement to be very accurate related to the expectations of the property details.

Amazingly Furnished Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and look forward the opportunity to enjoy your cabin in the future. Wonderful views of the mountain in a clean fully furnished home. I can't think of anything that was needed. Thank you for allowing us visit and enjoy your cabin.

Loved It

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home with all the comforts and amenities you could ask for. We did not want to leave this place the whole week, even tho there are plenty of activities nearby. We will certainly be back. Sherri was a pleasure to work with and is so enthusiastic. She makes you feel like a special guest. Love, love, loved it. EMF

Great mountain home with a view!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed celebrating my inlaws 50th Anniversary at this home. The home is very clean. The views from the back deck are beautiful. This house was perfect for 6 adults (3 couples with private rooms)and 2 kids(slept on the pullout couch and air mattress downstairs). 4 full bathrooms provide ample areas for all to have their own space. Kitchen amenities/grill were great for us cooking as a large group. The table has 6 chairs and kids sat at the bar if we weren’t eating outside on the deck picnic table. We loved rocking on the rocking chairs (having more than 3 rockers would have made it perfect) and relaxing in the hot tub in the evening on the back deck. The kids loved making popcorn every night in the basement as well as the shuffleboard/ping pong. We had a night in the quaint wine room toasting the anniversary couple. We had a fire pit/s’mores one night(just at the bottom of the hill by the other 2 cabins owned by the owners). Some of the family hiked on the nearby on property trail. We had a couple minor things that needed attention that Buni, the sweet local property manager, quickly resolved (a phone call away)so nothing made a kink in our stay. Very quiet and private home. We enjoyed exploring Asheville, Black Mountain, and the Biltmore mansion along with breweries and wineries. Highly recommend.
