About Sherri Mansell
My husband and I have 4 children ages 12 - 25 and live in South Florida. We have vacationed in western NC for over 25 years where my parents have a home.
Sherri Mansell purchased this Cabin in 2008
Why Sherri Mansell chose Black Mountain
We chose this location in Black Mountain because it's a very quaint town with great restaurants and so close to the city of Asheville with airport, universities and culture events.
What makes this Cabin unique
What we love best about our property is that we are located in the mountains surrounded by nature but have the luxuries of home and only 10 minutes to the grocery store and other amenities.

We enjoyed this paradise during this crazy time in our country. We spent the days hiking and the nights ordering food in and playing games together. It was a wonderful time for our family during this scary time. The house had everything we needed and more.
Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay!
Nice and quiet house !
Glad you enjoyed the nature peacefulness!
Log Cabin "Test Ride"
Very nice property, enjoyed our stay immensely.
Best of luck with your cabin build-out! Glad you enjoyed the test ride in our cabin.
Nice Quiet Place
This was a very nice place to stay. Quiet and private. There is another cabin next door but away enough for privacy. There were a few quicks but nothing major. Place was very clean, nice towels. HVAC works great to.
We enjoyed how quiet it was. The place was cozy and fully stocked will all your needs. Bright and airy feeling. Basement has good game area. Adult teens playing in the basement family/game room late at night, we couldn't hear them on the first floor master, so nicely built cabin. The hot tub was super clean and worked perfectly A+ for the hot tub. The property is very nice, has its own walking trails and stream, which was nice to have for a stroll.
It is in the mountains, so as the rental has stated, in the winter with snow you would need a 4wd. I think a good AWD system would be fine to. It is exactly 15 minutes to Black Mountain town. Great little town with excellent food/dining choices. Best Thai food anywhere. Asheville/Biltmore is exactly 35 minutes. So great location to feel out in the woods/mountains but close to everything. Ingles (favorite Georgia/N.C. grocery store) is about 13 minutes from the cabin door to door with several gas station choices.
The minor quirks, the only two I should note, is T-Mobile cell service is Zero. No fault of the cabin. The wifi is available but only for basic stuff. Check email and look up an address. Did speed test every day and averaged around 1mbps download. Again in the mountains. It was a bit better when only 2 people were on the network.
We had a great time. Large enough for 6 adults. Thank you.
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and all the amenities. It is great to be surrounded by so much nature and yet be only 10-15 minutes to town with a large grocery store..
High Rock/Black Mrn
Exactly as listed. Very clean cabin on a mountain side. Quiet if you wanted but close to the town of Black Mtn and ~25-30 min. from Asheville. Great escape/retreat. All the comforts of home, fireplace, hot tub and game room. Would recommend without reservation.
So glad you enjoyed the holiday week in our cabin! We love the luxury while still being in the woods surrounded by nature. We welcome you back for a future vacation!
My gf and I stayed at the Preserve for 5 nights in December of this year for an annual birthday trip. Booking and check in was a breeze, as was all communication with Sherri, the owner. No issues during our stay other than the pilot light for the gas fireplace being out when we arrived and Sherri had someone there the next day to get it going again.
The cabin itself was amazing! There was only 2 of us, so we didn’t utilize the full cabin, but could easily accommodate a large family or several couples in its 3 bedrooms. The grounds were great as well with a bonfire pit on a small pond that we enjoyed 1 night.
The location itself is the best part. High Rock makes you feel like you’re miles away from everything, yet still only 15 minutes to downtown Black Mountain so you can enjoy all of the little shops, eateries and brewing. Tons of great hiking nearby as well.
I would absolutely recommend staying at the Preserve if looking for a place in or near Black Mountain!
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! We also love the beautiful grounds and only being minutes away from town but feeling so far away. We welcome you back anytime.
