Hosted Thanksgiving dinner and a lovely, intimate wedding in this beautiful home over a long Thanksgiving weekend. Accommodated the groom's family downstairs, where there are two bedrooms, a full bath, a large den, private deck and separate entrance. On the main level right off the kitchen is a beautifully furnished master suite. The master bath has a huge stone shower and a claw foot tub. There is a hot tub and a koi pond outside a few steps through a private entrance off the master bedroom. A loft overlooking the great room has a queen bed and a full bathroom. The home is tastefully decorated throughout, clean as a whistle and luxurious.
The mountain views are breathtaking from the open great room which has windows that reach all the way to the vaulted ceiling. The backdrop was a beautiful setting for the wedding ceremony, dinner and dancing. After a joyous day, many guests commented that it was perfect and the best wedding they had ever attended.
Just 3.5 miles up the mountain from the interstate, this home is a short 15 minute drive to Asheville. At the bottom of the mountain is an Ingles grocery store, a Quality Inn, a florist, and many cafes and shops right in Black Mountain. The Artisan is a lovely little café and gourmet grocery which provided a fresh turkey breast for our Thanksgiving meal and a delicious menu for our wedding dinner. Hummingbird Hill is a mountain paradise with all the nearby conveniences!
The property manager was extremely helpful, offering recommendations for sources for our needs. She allowed us extra time before and after our stay and even returned a cake stand to a bakery in Asheville for me! I highly recommend this wonderful home to anyone looking for a beautiful venue for a small gathering or just a restful vacation!
