About Margaret Bauer
A 4th generation Montreater, I wanted to give our children the opportunity to experience summers and off-season weekends in this beautiful place. We live less than 3 hours away and come up often to stay in our nearby family home. In order to have more flexibility, my husband and I purchased Park Place in 2013, completely renovated it, and gave it a new life. We consider Montreat to be our second home. We hope you will love this place as much as we do!
Margaret Bauer purchased this House in 2013

Lovely spot! Good access to hiking trails from the house
The house is comfortable and homey but uncluttered and updated (in a good way). The only feature we wished for was a bigger dining area as we had a group of 8 and the dining table is on the smaller side. Plenty of nice deck space to eat outside though.
Good access to hiking trails right from the house (20 minutes to the trailhead). Montreat and Black Mountain both are really nice little mountain towns!
Perfect for a family! Felt like home!
We loved our stay in this cozy updated cabin that was convenient to everything! The feel of an old house but the comfort of everything you need! We will be back.
Cozy mountain home with all the amenities!
A group of 8 stayed at this lovely home for a weekend, and it was perfect! It’s so cozy, and it feels like home away from home. All the amenities you’ll need for a comfortable stay, and close proximity to hikes and Asheville! Very comfy beds!
Thanks for your great review. We hope to have you back again!
Margaret was very accommodating and the property was perfect - Nice and private and at the same time just minutes to Black Mtn center town - We will be coming back!
Thanks Todd, We would LOVE to have you back!
Comfy living in beautiful surroundings
We had such a good stay at Park Place! The house was so comfortable and well stocked. We love the park across the street. Can't wait to return!
Thank you, Rachel. We look forward to your return to Park Place.
Clean, comfortable and spacious!
We had a wonderful time with our family and close friends. There was plenty of room for all of us to enjoy time together. Ms Bauer quickly responded to any questions I had which I appreciated very much!
Thanks Maria, We would love to have you back again!

Montreat, NC is a secluded mountain cove community nestled at the foot of Greybeard Mountain and surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains. We are located in the far eastern portion of Buncombe County near the Eastern Continental Divide. We are blessed with a great variety of native flora and fauna, gently flowing streams and gorgeous mountain vistas. Life here is lived at a slower, more peaceful pace. There is no commercial development in Montreat, not even a traffic light. Most of the streets are narrow and winding, with much less vehicle traffic than larger town or cities. This is an advantage to our preferred method of travel - walking. Multiple trails wind through hundreds of acres of wilderness surrounding the Town, along creeks, across rustic bridges and through preserved woodland areas. Montreat, a name created from a portmanteau of 'Mountain' and 'Retreat,' was originally founded as as a spiritual retreat in the early 1900's. The Montreat Conference Center currently hosts year-round religious conferences for all ages. The Conference Center's facilities include a hotel, several guest lodges, a beautiful stone auditorium seating 2,000, a craft center, child care center, children's park and abundant hiking trails. Montreat College is a four-year co-educational liberal arts college that is independent and Christ-centered. The integration of faith and learning with an emphasis on servant leadership are key elements in the College's educational process. The College brings many special events to Montreat, including symphonies, plays, community arts festivals, adult learning programs community trips abroad and sports programs. Most of the College's facilities are housed in historic stone buildings constructed in the early 1900's. The Chapel of the Prodigal features internationally renowned fresco artist Ben Long's rendition of 'The Return of the Prodigal' and is open to the public.
