This quaint little bungalow is perfect for a get-away, family vacation, or retreat. Nestled in the town of Black Mountain, called the 'front porch of the Blue Ridge Mountains,' our Lake Tomahawk Bungalow allows you to experience the loveliness, peace and quiet of a small town.
Conveniently located near a treasure load of National Parks, attractions and majestic views including Mount Mitchell ,the highest elevation East of the Mississippi River. The Seven Sisters Mountains can be seen from our property in the backdrop of Lake Tomahawk.
The bungalow itself is located just one walking block from Lake Tomahawk which features a walking path encircling the lake where you can visit ducks and geese, enjoy the scenic views along the path or bring a blanket and a picnic and sit on the lawn for the Lake Tomahawk summer series Thursday night concerts.
If relaxation and rest is your objective, settle into our comfy deck chairs with a good book and a tall glass of ice tea or a cold drink and let the rest of your crew walk across the street and play tennis. You have a great view of the courts from the deck so you can relax and still monitor their play.
