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

Everything was nice and orderly and the eclectic furnishings made it fun and nostalgic.
Nice having the lake but overrun with geese and ducks making water murky and weed laden due to high nitrogen content. Black Mountain should monitor the lake. Wanted to kayak fish but lake looked toxic. Lots of dead catfish floating probably due to oxygen deprivation. But great walking path and view of Seven Sisters. The hosts were very nice and checked in on us. Great sitting out on porch to eat. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms neat and tidy. Had great time kayaking down French Broad River and touring the breweries. Also great food at the local restaurant downtown that is known for their oysters shipped in from NC, LA, ME and MD fresh. Great mussels and crab claws also.
The Perfect Retreat!
Our stay at Lake Tomahawk in Black Mountain was even better than expected! The house is cute, the perfect size for our family of 4. It was clean and had all the amenities we required. The location was great! We were able to walk our dogs around the lake, attend a bluegrass music event in the park across the street, drive 3 minutes to the cute Black Mountain shopping, and relax on the patio overlooking the park and mountains. Karen was so helpful with recommendations for activities and was quickly responsive to any needs we had. We would definitely stay here again!
Grandma's cottage on Lake Tomahawk
We loved staying in this cottage , it had a wonderful mix of new and old . The quaint kitchen and dining area are exactly what one would expect from a 40's style cottage , right down to the rotary style phone . The addition of a deck and updated heat/ air and plumbing made this cottage a pleasant place to stay . We also enjoyed having the lake to walk the dog and ourselves . Karen and Bob were very helpful and unobtrusive , we will definitely be staying here again .
We also enjoyed having your family as our guests on your "trip down memory lane" at grandma's lake cottage . I was so happy that you brought Angus with you and he was able to enjoy the front and backyard with the frisbee. Do hope that you'll come back and we enjoyed having you visit from Chapel Hill !
Warmly, Karen and Danny

We stayed in the cottage for our visit to Black Mountain and is was wonderful! The cats get was very comfortable and our hosts attended to every detail. The town also had a great coffee shop which was recommended by our host and we visited it every day! We would love to go back and highly recommend this cottage!
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.
