About Michael Spangler

Tom and Laura Spangler, owners, have been traveling to Montreat their whole lives. They live in Winston-Salem, NC and are blessed with four children and a grandchild. After fifteen years vacationing in the house next door, they bought and renovated 316 Texas Rd as a place to enjoy their growing family on vacation. They are grateful to the Lord for providing such a beautiful retreat, and are eager to share the blessing with others. Their son, Michael, manages the reservations and will be happy to talk to you any time by phone or email.

Michael Spangler purchased this house in 2013

Why Michael Spangler chose Montreat

Tom, Laura, and their children have always loved Montreat. Their biggest attraction was the family they'd meet here, but they also love relaxing, hiking, and enjoying all that Western North Carolina has to offer. Tom picked up his favorite hobby of pottery at the nearby Currie Craft Center, and Laura's parents have a vacation home just down the road. When 316 Texas Rd became available, it seemed like a perfect opportunity, and after extensive renovations (including the addition of the beautiful screened porch), they opened their new getaway on Thanksgiving 2014.

What makes this house unique

It is hard not to like the house's special touches: heated tile floors in the kitchen and bathroom, a mountain view out of the master bedroom, the tranquil screened porch, rich wood trim, attractive granite countertops, not to mention the giant projector screen! But the best feature of all is the people that stay there. We are sure you will find, just like we do, that whether for a romantic retreat or a family reunion, this house will be the perfect setting for sweet and lasting memories!

Our ladies group enjoyed our stay. We loved having our morning devotion on the screened porch. We spent our evenings sitting around the large dinner table. We loved our stay.

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We make it to Montreat for three weeks every summer, and this one was the best! Close to the park and clubs, and large enough to accommodate our group, this house was ideal.

Everything we hoped for and more

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 stayed at this property for the weekend. It was everything we hoped for and more. There was more than enough space for everyone. And the location was great. We went into Asheville every day, which was a short 25 min drive away. We also had the luxury of having tennis courts directly below our cabin and beautiful nature all around us. The upstairs also had a very cool screened in room, with a hammock and couches. We enjoyed every minute of this trip and staying in this cabin.

Wonderful House for Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 daughters and their husbands, and our 20 month old grandson had a wonderful 4 night stay at the Montreat house. The house was very clean, comfortable, and perfect for us with many private sleeping spaces. We enjoyed the large screened-in porch and the seating on the front porch as well. We loved sitting around the large table after preparing meals in the very well-equipped kitchen. The location was perfect for us, allowing for walks on nearby trails, playing in the park and creek across the street, and easily going to downtown Black Mountain for restaurants, groceries, and shopping. We also enjoyed time in Asheville, only 20 minutes away. We hope to return to this home for another vacation in the area in the future!

Car: necessary

Asheville, a famous mountain city that features an exciting and artistic downtown, many outdoor activities, and the must-see Biltmore Estate, is only a 20 minute drive away.

Three great attractions are right out your front door. Directly in front of the house is the Bill Wilde Youth Center, where during the summer guests can play games, ping pong, and foosball. Right next to the BWYC are tennis courts that are open year-round. On the other side of the BWYC is a large park with a playground and creek.

If you enjoy crafts or pottery, make sure to check out the Currie Craft Center and Sally Jones Pottery, both a short walk away. They offer enjoyable and reasonably priced classes.
