A wonderful place to stay in Black Mountain

  • 5 of 5

2 friends and I spent a 3 day weekend with wonderful accommodations. We walked in and were greeted by an open, clean and spacious living area with 2 nice sized bedrooms. We were well informed by the owners about the area and things to do and see. We enjoyed a beautiful walk to town through a wonderful neighborhood with beautiful old homes and lots of shade trees. We weren't able to take advantage of the lake but it was very close. The Leonetti's left us on our own and made it clear that we were to contact them if we needed them any time and provided us a phone number to contact them by. We really enjoyed the town of Black Mountain, especially the quilt shop, 7 sisters and Thyme and Again. We had wonderful meals at the Ale House and Red Rocker Inn and had the best salad ever at Trailhead. We look forward already to next year and our increased stay to 4 nights and 5 days!

A wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I used the guest house as our "home base" as we enjoyed many of the wonders that Black Mountain and Asheville have to offer. The house is warm and comfortable, with all the comforts of home. The owners are very welcoming and are there if you need them but not if you don't. They gave us great tips for places to eat and see in Black Mountain and we enjoyed many of them. Red Rocker Inn was great, as was the Biscuit, just for starters! I'd highly recommend this guest house as it's very comfortable and close enough to walk to the lake and downtown which made it very nice for us. My only suggestion would be to put gravel in the parking spot in front of the house to make access easier for people with disabilities. Thanks so much for your kind hospitality!

Perfect Black Mountain Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I adored the location of the Lake Tomahawk Guest House because we didn't spend hours driving here and there...Instead, we walked down to the lake again and again, enjoying the endless, ever-changing beauty of the mountains in fall--admiring the colors of the fall foliage as they changed with the weather and time of day. Watching the clouds move in to sit on the mountain and move off again felt as if we had driven on the Parkway--or even up to Mount Mitchell! We also enjoyed being close to all the awesome downtown restaurants and shopping, to Montreat where we visited friends, and less than a mile from the church where we attended a memorial service!

Karen and Danny were so personable and easy to work with! PS Next time, I want to bring my six-year-old granddaughter and introduce her to Karen--because I found out on the last day Karen is a new children's book author!

Restful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Black Mountain for the memorial service of our infant nephew. Though the reason for our trek was bleak (to put it mildly), we were very at home in this cottage. Not only is the location perfect for walking anywhere you like, the home spotless, and the amenities plentiful, but the peace and respite that radiated from the owners was like a Godsend. Despite the occasion, we had a lovely time and would recommend this place to anyone interested in a perfectly situated and tranquil stay. Many, many thanks to the Leonettis!

Beautiful Lake Tomahawk just 215 steps away with walking path around it. Playground, exercise classes, yoga.

TWO local breweries and MANY delicious restaurants, shops, etc. Gem mining and a LOVELY historic town. Even learn to knyit at the local yarn shop or take dulcimer lessons. Local health food stores and FABULOUS hiking trails galour with creaks to explore. Many lovely churches in town and walkable. Shops, bakeries are only a short 8 minute walk to downtown through quaint neighborhoods.
