About Amy Townsend

Hello! I have lived in North Carolina for several years and absolutely fell in love with this house the moment I saw it. It's wonderful to be in a community where the air is clean, there are lots of trees, and a traffic jam consists about about a dozen cars. I enjoy traveling, making new friends, and learning.

Amy Townsend purchased this house in 2005

Why Amy Townsend chose Black Mountain

Hello and welcome to Black Mountain! We're thrilled that you're going to stay in our home and hope that you love it as much as we do. I fell in love with it the moment I saw it back in 2005 and, like many DIYers will understand, I've been working on it ever since.

What makes this house unique

TREMONT is big and spacious and sunny. Like a large artist's palette, the house had plenty of room to play with. The game room was once a two-car garage. The "bonus room" above the garage was once a dark storage room with only two dormer windows. We enlarged the dormers and added skylights. We also knocked out the back wall and put in about 12 feet of windows that face the High Windy Range. When the leaves are down in the winter, you can enjoy some good mountain views.

As for the rest of the house, I replaced the flooring with tile upstairs and wood and laminate downstairs. A few years ago, we added architectural shingles. Last year, we repainted the walls and ceilings. The result in an incredibly cheerful, happy, light, and bright house in the midst of a laid back, friendly neighborhood surrounded by nature.

Great experience.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are new to VRBO. I can't say enough about the experience. Amy was such a sweet and gracious host. She greeted us at the house when arrived and graciously showed us around her beautiful home (even though we were late).

The house was large enough to comfortably accommodate our group of eight adults and three children under three. It was clean and managed to seem cozy despite the size. It's also close to the interstate. I can't say enough. It was a great property and we all had a great time. Thanks Amy for a great stay.

Owner's Response: Sekeyta, I so enjoyed having you! You and your family were such a delight. I can't tell you how comfortable I felt leaving the house after greeting you and knowing that I was leaving it in great hands. Not only were you such a pleasure to meet, but you also took great care of the home. I hope that you come back and see us again!

Beautiful home in a good location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this beautiful home! The owners were kind enough to provide some basic supplies like paper towels, toilet paper, and shampoo as well as linens and plenty of towels. There was plenty of space for our group! Just make sure to understand the bedroom arrangement because one of the rooms requires you to walk through the Master bedroom.

Spacious and Beautifully Appointed Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay last week! The owner thought of everything! The decor lends itself to comfort and relaxation. Ours was a family vacation and we had lots of “cool” space to visit but also had privacy when we wanted it. So we had a nice balance! I have no hesitation in recommending it! The back deck is such a wonderful addition! The 4 bedrooms were very comfortable. We had plenty of towels and supplies to anticipate every need! Perfect for a family reunion! We had 4 young children ages 8 months to 6.5 and the house is very child friendly.

Perfect! ❤️

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful home nor more gracious hosts. The house is lovely and was equipped with everything needed to make our stay a delight, including wine and cinnamon

rolls. We just want to say thank you for helping to make our family vacation a wonderful and memorable experience. 👍?

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and very well appointed. The owner provided drinking water, snacks, wine, coffee, toiletries and other amenities that I have never had provided for me at a VRBO before. The neighborhood was quiet and not too far from downtown. The house itself was huge and the deck was lovely. We'd definitely stay again!

Our June weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful pull up curb appeal! Plenty of room for our whole family (all out of town'ers/state's) We had a very enjoyable stay with beautiful trees surrounding quaint deck conversations...we even invited the neighbors over to join in with our son's wedding festivities..(they gracefully declined) There were plenty of nice smelling towels and rooms were very clean and non-cluttered! Bathrooms were roomy and conveniently located throughout the house. Air conditioning was perfectly set. We even had a welcomed surprise of cinnamon buns! Beautifully landscaped and details of beauty were present! Our son-the groom, found a blueberry bush along the front sidewalk. He and his bride handed everyone a fresh blueberry upon their exiting from the days' visit! I give this property, and the owner, who had stayed in perfect contact with me prior and after our visit, a 5+ Star rating!! Perhaps a 10! (The owner found my husband's wedding band hanging in the shower and mailed it us the next day!) Now that's service!! Highly recommend this property and we will definitely return!!
