About the Property
3 BR,1 BA; Unique Handcrafted Interior on Oak-Lined Street; Walk or Bike to Town
Located in a quiet neighborhood between Black Mountain and Montreat, this home is a 1030 square foot cottage that has been updated with custom touches - interior timber framing using locally sourced lumber, vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, and handmade cabinets. There are three bedrooms - two have queen beds with very comfortable new mattresses, and one has a futon with a new mattress and memory foam topper. The bathroom has a bathtub with combination stationary/handheld shower for your convenience, and is stocked with toilet tissue, a first aid kit, and extra toiletries in case you forget something.
The kitchen has everything you need to prepare a delicious meal using the freshest local ingredients, and a dishwasher to help make the cleanup easier. We keep basics such as dish soap, detergent, paper towels, spices, sugar, and coffee filters on hand.
The property has a large backyard complete with fire pit and firewood, lawn chairs, propane grill, charcoal grill, picnic table, and flower and garden beds. The covered front porch and back deck have several seating choices that are perfect for reading, enjoying a cup of coffee, or sitting down to an outdoor breakfast. The house is naturally shaded and kept cool by two large white oaks that also support a swing for two. The house has a brand new central air system for your comfort, and we provide wireless internet, direcTV, and an ample selection of books, local guidebooks, games, and DVDs.
Because this is a family-friendly home, and we aim to make sure your children enjoy their stay as much as you enjoy yours, there are shelves stocked with children's art supplies, toys, and books. To make packing easier for you, there is also an umbrella stroller and high chair in the house.
The sidewalk from town leads right to the neighborhood, and two beach cruiser bikes are included with your rental for you to explore the town and all of its lovely shops, restaurants, and parks.
There is a washer and dryer on the premises (in the outside-entry basement), as well as laundry soap, fabric softener, and dryer sheets to take care of your laundry needs during your stay.
This home is the perfect place to stay, whether you're attending a conference, moving your son or daughter into college, or just getting away to the mountains for a few days. The location is convenient to everything Black Mountain and Montreat have to offer, and is only 20 minutes from downtown Asheville.

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Amanda & Mike have lived in Black Mountain since 2010, and in the area since 2002. Amanda is originally from Florida, and then lived in New Jersey. Mike grew up in New Jersey, where he met Amanda at Rutgers University. Soon after college, they moved to the Asheville area and fell in love with Western North Carolina. They currently live close to the cottage in Black Mountain with their daughter. They have a large garden, bee hives, chickens, and make maple syrup every year from the sugar maples around town.
Why the Owner Chose Black Mountain, NC, USA:
Amanda & Mike were friends with the previous owners, and when they moved to the eastern part of the state and put the house up for sale, it was a natural decision to buy it and allow others to experience the area.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Black Mountain has so much to offer everyone, from the Saturday tailgate market to Thursday night Park Rhythms at Lake Tomahawk. The house's location is not loud or congested, but close enough to walk or bike to town.
