This was a fantastic location. We enjoyed the remote location away from the hustle and bustle of where we currently live. This was a last minute decision and the owner was fantastic in helping us make this work. The property was fantastic and wonderful to be able to take our dogs to run and enjoy their time, too! Will definitely be back (hopefully under better circumstances).
Amazing, quaint place to stay! The property as beautiful!
We loved staying here! A very unique studio with amazing photography displayed (used to be a photography studio). The place was clean, private, stocked with towels and had what you needed in the kitchen. There is no TV, but great WiFi. Outside in the back was a great spot for coffee in the mornings. We walked around the property and took in the gorgeous scenery. I would highly recommend this place and all of the Lake Eden Events places!! Very unique stories behind some of the buildings as it was Black Mountain College at one point. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!!
Beautiful. Quaint. Cozy.
Great art work. Loved the location. Private and beautiful. Clean. Highly recommend.
This stay at this property was amazing. My first time in Asheville area, and I cannot wait to come back!
This property was clean, and inviting.We saw some neighbors, but it was private enough that we did not interact often. It was very easy to access the property and the rental. I cant wait to come back here and see what the area has to offer.
Initially I was hesitant to stay in Black Mountain because I did not want to waste time travelling to and from Asheville. Honestly, it was an easy commute and I was happy to stay here. Also, Black Mountain is a cute and welcoming area in itself!
Pleasant, but not so great
The location was great; an easy 15 highway drive without traffic to downtown and far enough away to be quiet. The grounds, landscape with lake and rolling hills was beautiful and peaceful (watch out for duck poop everywhere). The studio was quaint, but, we did not like that the shower is alone in one room, a toilet in another room and neither had a sink or mirror. Also, it was not as clean as depicted in the photos. The outside grill had been used and not cleaned with chunks of meat and grease throughout. The outside chairs and table were dirty.
We are glad this guest enjoyed our property and location. We certainly do have many geese here on the grounds. Our joke is that they don't bother to migrate since Lake Eden has everything they could possibly want. They do stay in the lower grounds down by the lake and are not generally found up in the lodging area.
As for the layout of the Studio, this is directly because the building actually WAS a documentary photography studio in it's former life and the shower room was a converted developing room. There is a mirror in the shower room on the wall and a sink & mirror just outside the door to the toilet room. All of these spaces are just a few feet from each other, side by side of course since the Studio is a compact space.
In regards to the outside patio furniture and grille we will certainly make sure housekeeping pays closer attention to those details in the future. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.
The Studio is nestled in a grove where the historic Black Mountain College once thrived during the '40s and '50s as one of the most important educational and artistic experiments. Buckminster Fuller built the first geodesic dome here on the property and Albert Einstein taught here.
*Mt. Mitchell, the highest point east of the Rockies, stands tall in the distance, mountain lakes and streams welcome you, and the beauty and spirit of this place is truly relaxing and magical. While you enjoy a feeling of being far away you have the luxury of being close to so many great experiences... Black Mountain (5 minutes), Asheville (20 min), Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore Estate, Cherokee, and outdoor adventures abound (hikes, rafting, mountain biking, climbing, picnics, etc).
