Newly renovated, unbelievable views of Hickory Nut Gorge to Mt Mitchell
About Diane Haines
We grew up in nearby Rutherfordton and moved all across the United States, but still call the mountains of NC home. As kids, we spent summers at Lake Lure.
Diane Haines purchased this House in 2000
Why Diane Haines chose Black Mountain
Although we live in other parts of the US, we consider the mountains of NC home. When we come back, we wanted a special place to enjoy the mountains and nearby Lake Lure/Asheville and other sights to share with our kids. While enjoying the serenity of a mountain retreat, you can reach Asheville in 30 mins and Lake Lure marina in 10 mins.

Stunning Views. Fantastic House
We had a wonderful month long stay at Windsong. The views from the patios were stunningly beautiful. We went out and enjoyed the views as much as possible. It is very peaceful and remote. The house was clean and well stocked. The owners were easy to communicate with. There is a lot to do in the area but be prepared to drive on some winding roads to get anywhere. We explored the whole area. Bat Cave, Chimney Rock, Asheville, Hendersonville, Black Mountain, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Pisgah National Forest, Chimney Rock State Park, Lake Lure. Many good hikes in the area. Lots of good food and drink also. We made use of the TV and the internet. We worked part of the time and the internet speed was good. The drive up to the house is very steep at the end. We would highly recommend staying here. Loved it.
Thanks for staying with us! Glad you enjoyed your month with us.
What an amazing view, home, and area
Wow, this place surely was as advertised and more. The view is spectacular (photos do not do it justice) and perfectly secluded as we desired. The cabin is extremely clean and comfortable. Anything we needed was there. The location was exactly perfect for all of the activities we wanted to do in the greater Asheville area. Chimney rock not to be missed! The restaurants in town were very good as well, although the town nearby closes down by 8:00 p.m. which is quite early (so hit any shops daytime only because they close even earlier than that). I would absolutely stay here again! Miss it already.
Thanks for staying with us. Hope to see you again!
Incredible property, so beautiful!
Every positive review below this one is 1000% accurate. The property is stunning inside and out. The home furnishings details and the views (from inside) will exceed your expectations. The view outside? 'Breathtaking' hardly does it justice! Just in a few short days, the surrounding mountain views changed 50 times to reveal something new and amazing! After a stay here, you will want to buy this home or build one yourself! Love, love, love this place!
Thanks for staying with us!
Beautiful property! Even better than the pictures suggest. The driveway is a little intimidating but never had any issues with it. Very private location but close enough to local attractions so as not to feel isolated.
Glad you enjoyed your time with us!
Best VRBO We've Ever Rented
This is the ideal mountain house. It is freshly renovated. Fabulous beds and pillows. Very nice antique dining table, buffet, and more. Very comfortable furniture throughout. Fabulous views. Porch and overlook have very comfortable furniture. Very nice spacious kitchen, well equipped. This is first VRBO I've seen that had full supplies in kitchen, like zip-locs, paper towels, salt and pepper grinders, ample trash bags -- anything you might need for enjoying cooking and clean-up. Gas log fire places are perfect for winter. Shower in master suite has multiple shower heads, one large waterfall-like one. Owner was available by phone and email for questions, guidance, We have never had that before. Wish I could give this place ten stars instead of five. On top of the niceness of the house and furnishings and owner, we woke to clouds filling the valleys all around us. Felt like we were in heaven.
So happy that you enjoyed your return visit to Shumont Mountain!
