Great place for family reunionn

  • 3 of 5

We had a family reunion at Claire's house. It was spacious with plenty of space for 6 adults and 6 kids. We had a wonderful time there. However, 3 stars is because it has been 3 weeks since we left Montreat and we have not received our $500 security deposit back. We left the house in the condition we found it. I have emailed her and recently phoned her, but there has been no response so far.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We have found the perfect home for our family of 10! I thought the 2 bathrooms would be an issue, but had no problems! The adults loved the spacey kitchen, dinning room , and great room. The kids said it was the best house for Hide and Seek! Bedrooms for all plus comfy couches, grass to play kickball, and a big round table great for playing "Spoons"!

Perfect place for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

This home is exceptional for a large group! Plenty of seating, well equipt kitchen and multiple sleep options made this the perfect place for our weekend stay. Our favorite hang out was the screened in porch. Very conveniently located in the center of Montreat with access to the ball fields, play ground, Lake Susan and just minutes from DT Black Mountain.

A FANTASTIC GETAWAY !!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect mountain escape. Exellent location, very comfortable and spotless with lots of extras provided by the owners to enjoy. An awesome house for families, children, retreats, reunions, girls weekends, meetings and more. Montreat is always a beautiful spot and has lots to keep everyone busy and the house is perfect for relaxing. Black Mountain is wonderful with lots of great shops and restaurants. The owners were terrific to work with. A fantastic getaway!! Cannot wait to return.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay during a recent family reunion. This beautiful house was clean, comfortable, child-friendly and in an excellent location. We were in walking distance of the playground and stream, which was fun for the kids (ages 2-23 all had fun in the stream!) And of course many hiking trails near by. The owner was very helpful, kind and easy to work with. I hope to stay there again during future vacations!
