Guestbook comments from the manager

My nine AP English students and I truly enjoyed our stay at Hill Top House. Leigh and his staff thought of everything to make our two-night visit absolutely wonderful. We built a fire, toasted marshmallows, and made smores. The kids are still talking about the trip! Thank you for your gracious hospitality. I will definitely keep Lake Eden Events in mind when planning my next field trip to the mountains !!!

Scenic, comfortable, well-equipped, and clean. We enjoyed our stay taking in both Black Mountain (10 min) and Asheville (15 min) and hiking Lookout Mountain. We would stay again!

Hilltop House is set on our private 60+ acre property 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 Elbert Einstein taught here.

Some of the highest points east of the Rockies stand 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).
