About Gay Herron

I am married with 3 grown children and 2 grandchildren. My husband and I live in Black Mountain. I love nature, the mountains and being outdoors. I am so blessed to live in such a beautiful part of the country where there is so much to do and see and God's beauty is evident all around us!

Gay Herron purchased this House in 2015

Why Gay Herron chose Black Mountain

We bought this home because of the gorgeous views!! I used to hike up to it and stand out on the deck and dream of owning it one day. Now that dream has come true and we are so blessed, in fact we are still pinching our selves!! We both love the mountains and watching the changing seasons. Life in Western NC has a lot to offer and we are proud to be able to have this home to share with you. Close to Historic downtown Black Mountain, only a 10-15 minute drive or take a 25-30 minute drive and you will find the city of Asheville, the Biltmore House, The Blue Ridge Parkway, so much to explore! And then at the end of your day, you can head back to your mountain home, tucked away in the woods, but still so close by, It's a place to rest, rejuvenate and become inspired.

What makes this House unique

The views are truly what I love about this home, inside the living room or dining area or outside on the decks, you can take it all in. It is so peaceful and serene up here on the mountain, yet so close to town, just a short 10-15 minute drive and you can shop for groceries, eat at any of the great local restaurants, have a drink and listen to live music, stroll through town and visit all the cute shops, have a coffee and catch up on the local chatter, hike, bike, workout at the gym, try some yoga, or explore the town of Montreat just down the road....there is so much to see and do here! Of course coming home to the amazing views and kicking up your feet to take it all in, is the best!!

It climbs to an elevation of 3200 feet to a beautiful peaceful serene mountain setting to escape the noise and the fuss of everyday life. Come and relax and savor all the mountains have to offer, any season is beautiful here!! If you love to star gaze you are in for a treat! The skies at night up here on the mountain are gorgeous!

                                                                Thank you Loren, we enjoyed having you and your family. I'm happy to hear you had a relaxing, peaceful time with loved ones! The home is like a little retreat away from it all, yet not to far to get out and about and enjoy the area. We would welcome you back anytime!

                                                                Wonderful Home......Fabulous Views!

                                                                Robyn S.

                                                                We just spent a girls weekend at Mountain Sky and had a fantastic time! The house is in a beautiful location that's close to Black Mountain, yet just far enough away to feel secluded and peaceful. This house is wonderful in so many ways. It was cozy, clean and neat as a pin, decorated very nicely, comfy beds and linens, and was well-stocked with kitchen supplies. And THE VIEW! Wow! The view was phenomenal! Watching the sunrise while drinking coffee was great! Soaking in the hot tub while the sun set was even better! We all agreed that this was one of the nicest places we've ever stayed and definitely plan to return. OH, I do have to mention that Gay is a wonderful host. We arrived to a basket of amenities with lots of info on local attractions and restaurants, locally roasted coffee, pretzels, chocolate, fruits, Biltmore wine, and even some half-n-half in the fridge! She made us feel very welcome and we loved it!

                                                                Owner's Response:

You were PERFECT guests and we so appreciate you taking such good care of our home. Guests like you are what make hosting a pure pleasure! I am happy to hear you were able to take in those beautiful sunrises and sunsets, that is part of what makes the home so very special. We would absolutely LOVE to have you back anytime you find a need to come relax in the mountains! Gay

                                                                Alysse P.

                                                                What a wonderful experience! We enjoyed having our coffee while watching the sunrise over the mountains and unwinding in the hottub after long days of hiking! We can't wait to come back!

                                                                Owner's Response:

We think that's one of the reasons that this home is a perfect place to relax, enjoy the mountains and take in all of God's beauty! Thank you so much for taking such good care of our place, we can't wait for you guys to come back again someday!


                                                                Black Mountain, NC, USA

                                                                We are located just a few miles out Hwy 9 South, just out of Black Mountain, (Exit 64 off of I-40) about a 10 minute scenic drive. Take a beautiful winding drive up Hwy 9 South through the mountains and turn into High Rock Acres on your left, the road will turn to a wide gravel/dirt road that will take you to Mountain Sky Vacation Home on your Left. It can be rough, muddy etc. depending on the weather so I do recommend 4 wheel drive especially in the winter. It's a gorgeous setting, private and views that go on forever! High Rock Acres has several homes all tucked away in private settings. Four wheel drive vehicles are recommended during winter months, as we do occasionally have ice or snow.
