We arrived on Sunday afternoon, a little road weary, but instantly revived as we were welcomed to a lovely home instead of a just a rental property. The house was beautifully and tastefully decorated and comfortable. We are three couples who get together once a year to catch up and enjoy each others company. We felt like we were home and enjoyed our time together in this inviting atmosphere. We cooked all but two of our meals in a great kitchen. The location was ideal - close to Old Fort, the Pisgah National Forest and Black Mountain which made exploring and shopping exciting. We would recommend The Verandah in Black Mountain as a great place for lunch. I would recommend this property to everyone.
