Black Mountain Cabin Rental Photos and Description
3 Bedrooms + 2 Lofts, 2.5 Baths
Enjoy our private mountain retreat while still close to the amenities of Black Mountain and Asheville. Ideal for two to four couples and family groups of 4-6 adults with children, our pet friendly Chalet is located on 15 wooded acres in the Brushy mountains above the town of Swannanoa, 10 miles East of Asheville and 10 miles West of Black Mountain. At 2550 feet, our view is of Three Brothers Mountain and the Bee Tree Valley.
The First Floor Master Bedroom features a King Bed, flat screen TV, en-suite bath and a private entrance to the four-person hot tub on the enclosed sun porch. Two additional bedrooms (1 King, 1 Queen) on the second floor and the Loft (Full Futon) overlooking the Great Room make the Chalet great for families. Children love climbing the spiral stair in the East (King) Bedroom up to the loft play area with a single bed/mini-futon. The West (Queen) Bedroom has a flat screen TV, a baby crib and sliding glass doors to the second story deck.
The Great Room with Gas log fireplace, sitting area and dining area has a full southern view through the 16 foot sliding glass doors and glass wall. The Kitchen has everything you will need to prepare your meals; a full complement of cookware, large and small appliances, two china services, crystal and daily use glassware, table linens and plenty of cutlery. Relax and enjoy the outdoors on our large 16x50 deck with a gas grill, picnic table and lots of chairs. On the adjoining West Patio is a patio set with an umbrella for dining al fresco. When evening falls, roast marshmallows in the fire pit!
Hike up to the top of the mountain with your pet to enjoy the view of the Brushy Mountains and the Bee Tree Valley below. Wander down to the ford (stream) at the driveway entrance and enjoy our little waterfall!

About Bob and Lorna
We built the Chalet in 2005 on acreage we bought from Lorna's father (Brett's Falling Waters Cabin) for our eventual retirement from our jobs in Northern Virginia. We love the tranquility and privacy of our home, as well as it's closeness to shopping, restaurants, and the entertainment offered by Black Mountain and Asheville. We hope that our guests enjoy their visit to our home as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner
To start, we had never rented a "cabin" before, so this was a first. It exceeded our expectations, which made it all the better. We had my parents come down from Michigan, us from Louisiana, to stay there for two nights. We had a wonderful time, the location was perfect. Our only regret was that we did not stay one more night. Three nights would be the way to go if you have the time. The slightest issue we had is we could not get the hottub to work which we left a note for the maintenance people. That said, it in no way hampered our stay. We loved the place. The layout was great, to the point it may be the blueprint to our retirement "dream house" in the future. Thanks again...
