About Sherry Riley
I am a New Englander from Vermont. I am a physical therapist and a former high school teacher who enjoys playing piano and guitar. I am the eldest of 7 children from a large Irish and French family. My interests include bicycling-I biked across the USA in 1980-and traveling. I have enjoyed visiting Europe, Japan, Central America, Canada and all but 6 of the USA states. I am the proud grandmother of a 3 year old grandson.
Sherry Riley purchased this House in 2012
Why Sherry Riley chose Black Mountain
My cottage home is 5 minutes from downtown Black Mtn and within 15 minutes of Asheville. I am about 2 minutes off I40 and yet far enough off to not hear traffic. I sit at 2600' elevation making it cooler here. There is natural wildlife-bear, fox, and lots of humming birds in the yard-sometimes as many as 27. This is the most peaceful place I have ever lived. I feel like I am on vacation here all the time-a common thought in these Black Mtns!
What makes this House unique
The ridge view from the front porch is lovely and the greenery in the back yard is peaceful. My home is very warm and cozy. There is a great hiking trail minutes away and a multitude of trails in nearby Montreat. Black Mtn is a great place to live-filled with art, music and interesting folks from all over the USA.

Wonderful! Beautiful! Comfortable! Sherry is a treasure! She treated us more than just guests - and more like friends. You will enjoy your stay! Sherry was very gracious and a pleasure to spend time with. She is an amazing person! Her house and gardens are beautiful. She also knows the area and the people of Black Mountain and Ashville very well. My husband and I were treated with her knowledge of wonderful musicians, literature, and conversations of her life experiences and travels. Our time with Sherry was a highlight. You should definitely stay!
Jennifer and Samuel,
I so enjoyed hosting you-and sorry for the rainy weather! I felt very comfortable having you in my home and enjoyed chatting and sharing experiences. Please plan to stay again when in our lovely area. We have many festivals in Black Mtn that I think you would enjoy as well as many special events-look on the Black Mtn Chamber of Commerce site-they have a good calendar. Hope you had a safe and easy trip home! Cheers, Sherry
Perfect spot for a quiet getaway
Sherry was a generous hostess and everything was as described, if not better.
The property is a short drive into Black Mountain town centre with great restaurants and streets for strolling, with Asheville and a number of different parks and trails nearby for easy access.
Sherry was informative and friendly, always making sure we had exactly what we needed, including extra towels and blankets, along with a number of coffee options and snacks.
Thanks for a great stay, Sherry!
Thanks Kyle-you are welcome back anytime-spring is a great time for hiking-and there is always lots going on in both Asheville and Black Mtn. I enjoyed hosting you and your friend! Cheers, Sherry
Pleasant and personable host. Great indoor and outdoor areas. Convenient to downtown, quiet, private and very comfortable.
We had a wonderful time in the Asheville area and I feel like I made a new friend. Sherry is very welcoming and her place is spotless. I enjoyed having time with her at her home.
Sherry was an amazing host. We loved staying there !!
Room was good and stay was homely. She suggested pretty good locations for hike such as Chimney Rock and Lookibg mirror rock.
Thanks Gaurav-I enjoyed hosting you and friends! Pleas come back and stay for your next hiking weekend in our beautiful mountains! I hope you enjoyed Chimney Rock!
We loved Sherry's place! She is a wonderful host who made our stay comfortable and opened her home to us. We enjoyed talking with her and having a cup of coffee in the morning on her back porch. It was such a serene experience! Sherry also helped us plan our morning in Black Mountain and gave us suggestions regarding nearby activities and points of interest.
If we visit Ashville or Black Mountain again, we would be happy to stay at Sherry's place.
Hi Reni and Ivan,
I also enjoyed meeting you both! I hope the rest of your vacation went well! Coffee on the back porch with guests is just lovely and a great way to get to know folks! Please come again, and if you think you want to move here at some point, I have a real estate person for you. Fall is also beautiful here. Please feel free to come again anytime-I'll have the coffee on!
