About Karen & Dan Leonetti

We have owned and run our own vacation rental since 1992. We've had properties on the beach and now in the mountains. We used to vacation in Lovely Black Mountain for seven years before moving here permanently in 2013. We love the way the valley seems to give us a hug and just say ahhhhh every day that we awake here!

Karen & Dan Leonetti purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Karen & Dan Leonetti chose Blue Ridge Mountains

This is a special CIRCA 1940s lake cottage that we lovingly restored to keep its vintage flair, yet adding modern-day comfort conveniences for your 'Trip down memory lane.'

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonder weekend in Black Mountain and staying at Grandma's Cottage was part of the experience. The house is clean, comfortable and welcoming. Karen and Dan are very kind and hospitable. They made sure we were well taken care of by suggesting things to do and checking in on us upon arrival. We had banana bread awaiting us. We will stay here again if we return to the area.

Karen and Danny - Excellent Hosts in a Very Cute Town

  • 5 of 5

Grandma's Cottage is perfect size for 2 adult women, with comfortable beds and soft sheets. The deck has a lovely view of the mountains and lake, and my dog enjoyed the path around the lake. Karen and Danny were so friendly and accommodating, suggesting the Black Mtn Bistro for dinner our first night in town, and it was great-we could have eaten there every night! Black Mountain is such a cute and friendly town, lots of good restaurants, and don't miss shopping at Mountain Nest. For a stunning view, take the drive up to Craggy Gardens-it's spectacular (especially for this Floridian).

Black Mountain Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Karen’s place for the weekend and the house was exactly what we needed! The house is compact but there was enough space for four adults, one child and one infant. I whole heartedly recommend ‘Grandma’s House’ to anyone staying the Asheville/Black Mountain area!

Quaint cottage in a great location

  • 4 of 5

My three girlfriends and I spent the weekend here for our annual getaway. The location was great and the house was adorable. The owners were very helpful in all ways. Karen even had a bottle of wine waiting for us!

Lake tomahawk is 100 steps away! There is a .5 mile walking/ jogging path around the lake. Come watch the ducks, geese and birds frolic in the lake. The playground is a joy to hear too. There is a public pool nearby that you can purchase a daily or monthly pass. Daily & weekly yoga and exercise classes are held at the lakeside center. Golf course is walkable and croquet course too! Tennis is at the lake for day or night~time tennis games.

The town of black mountain is a short 10 minute walk and a 3 minute drive. It is there that you will find quaint shops, eateries, pubs and our local brewery.
