About Kelley Hagerty

Hi - My husband and I, our twins Jack and Bobby (pictured) and our two furry four legged kids Nikki and Rocco love to go hiking and fishing. The private and quiet location of this house is perfect for relaxing but still close to outdoor activities. We hope you can enjoy the house and area as much as we do!

Kelley Hagerty purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Kelley Hagerty chose Black Mountain

My husband I and purchsed this home with hopes of retireing there one day. It's peaceful and natural setting make the perfect 'get away' spot.

What makes this chalet unique

The interior of this home gives a true 'chalet' feel. We love the huge double sided fireplace and comfortable aspects of the home.

A group of 12 of us rented this mountain house for a fun getaway weekend on labor day! Overall, we had a great time however we were disappointed with the hot tub not being functional and the overall cleanliness. Kelley was super helpful and promptly answered any questions we had!

Perfect mountain getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this Mountain Chalet on a long, beautiful, summer weekend and it was amazing. The house was everything described and simply perfect for our needs. My wife and I bunked in the "kids" room with the pair of bunk beds (and our big bed was very comfortable), and the rest of my family filled the spacious mountain house. It was too warm for a fire in the giant, double sided, stone fireplace but we did enjoy the hot tub all weekend! The location was perfect - a short drive to all our destinations and there is so much to do in this part of the Western NC mountains! The driveway is steep and a little daunting when you first pull up, but we got used to it quickly and it was no big deal, and the view was absolutely worth it! The owner was very helpful and answered questions quickly (a breaker popped while we were there and she had to tell us how to flip it back!), and we would definitely rent from her again! We had a blast and know you will too, so get up to the mountains as soon as you can, and this house is a great place to stay when you do!

Breathtaking view of the mountain tops!

  • 5 of 5

I came with a family of 8 , we had many choices of beds, big enough space to all be in one room, ability to eat together... the drive into the subdivision allowed to see all kinds of wildlife..

I would recommend this house to anyone.

Unfortunately this rental, which had a lot of potential, truly missed the mark. Not only was it filthy and uncleaned from the prior renters, it seemed like it hadn't been thoroughly cleaned in a very long time. Our first day/night at this rental was spent having the one person cleaning service totally clean the place top to bottom in no less than 6 hours. Up until 1am while the cleaning lady vacuums your rental, which is overpriced by the way, is not the way to spend your vacation. Some of the functions of the hot tub do not work. The pictures do not depict it very well. It looked much nicer in pictures than actuality. Good luck in your search for a nice mountain cabin rental. I would advise against this one.

Owner's Response: I wish I could say something to change what happened, but there was a scheduling error with our cleaner and these guests arrived to a house that had not been cleaned and it got their vacation off to a bad start. The miscommunication with our cleaner was obviously unintended, but we feel terrible that it impacted these guests and understand their frustration. We’ve been renting our family home for 12 years now and as one can see from all our great guest ratings, this is an anomaly, but nonetheless it is our fault. As soon as the guests arrived that evening and notified us that the house had not been cleaned we sent the cleaner down. She worked into the night to make it right, but obviously the guests were frustrated and upset that someone was there cleaning for hours. Further, we refunded the rent to try and make it right. We take great pride in having a home we can share with others where they can make great memories with their families, and we feel terrible that an error on our part disputed these people’s vacation. All we could do was to immediately correct the problem (which we did) and refund their rent (which we did). Finally, we have apologized profusely to the guests. Hopefully everyone reading this will also read the hundreds of great reviews about our home and know this bad experience was out of the norm.

Good space for a large group

  • 3 of 5

Plenty of room for everybody. Over all was an ok place to stay. It could use a good cleaning and some areas are in need of some TLC weeds growing in the gutters, the porch needs painted, and handrails are loose. I'm pretty sure the prior party trashed it pretty bad but but not really an excuse for months worth of dust and dirt under the furniture and in the corners.

The house has stunning views and is well equipped for large family groups

  • 4 of 5

We were pleased with the house. It was exactly what we were looking for for our family vacation. We had plenty of room for our group of 20. The house was located in a beautiful community and enough off the beaten path that we were able to enjoy the natural beauty of the mountains.
