Black Mountain Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

This quaint little bungalow is perfect for a get-away, family vacation, or retreat. Nestled in the town of Black Mountain, called the 'front porch of the Blue Ridge Mountains,' our Lake Tomahawk Bungalow allows you to experience the loveliness, peace and quiet of a small town. Conveniently located to a treasure load of local attractions and majestic views.

The bungalow itself is located just one walking block from Lake Tomahawk which features a walking path all around the lake where you can visit ducks and geese, enjoy the scenic views along the path or bring a blanket and a picnic and sit on the lawn for the Lake Tomahawk summer series Thursday night concerts.

If relaxation and rest is your objective, settle into our comfy deck chairs with a good book and a tall glass of ice tea or a cold drink and let the rest of your crew walk across the street and play tennis. You have a great view of the courts from the deck so you can relax and still monitor their play safely.

Downtown Black Mountain offers many quaint shops for purchasing clothing, kitchen knick-knacks, antiques, specialty items, children toys and more. There are many restaurants to choose from including wood-fired pizza and fresh pasta, Thai, sushi, authentic Mexican, local delis and a chocolate shop. The surrounding areas boast hiking, walking/running and mountain bike trails. Check out Montreat College's campus for easy to difficult climbs including the Lookout Trail which boasts a 360 degree view of the Swannanoa Valley.

The Lake Tomahawk Bungalow is located only 15 minutes from downtown Asheville where you will find all the amenities of a progressive big city including cinemas, 36 art museums, shopping, dining, and more. Asheville is home of the Vanderbilt family's historic Biltmore House with thousands of acres of wooded and landscaped grounds, a winery and restaurants, stables where you can rent horses, as well as the tour of the home. You may also want to get a day-spa ticket to the historic Grove Park Inn and Country Club, where many presidents and dignitaries have stayed when visiting the area.

In short, the Lake Tomahawk Cottage offers a great alternative to hotel rooms, with a full kitchen. The living room is furnished with comfortable couches and chairs, high speed wireless spectrum internet and cable. The two bedrooms have queen sized beds.. All linens and towels are provided as well as a hair dryer, iron, and ironing board.

Located right across the street from tennis courts and hundred meters from Lake Tomahawk. Lake Tomahawk is a small lake with a 5.5 mile walking/jogging path, kid friendly playground, sculptures, a summer outdoor concert series and a public swimming pool. The total amount on Homeaway does not include a $50.00 housekeeping fee and 7.75 % NC State sales and usage tax. Book directly thru us, the owners to avoid on-line credit card fees.

Perfect home-away for a mountain trip!

  • 5 of 5

My mom,husband and myself had a great mountain trip. Very close to Blue Ridge Pkway , Asheville, etc... or just a great place to relax on the deck. Clean and the kitchen was well-stocked, didn't need to bring a thing but ourselves. We definitely plan on coming back.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

As advertised. Which is important to me. Great location, short distance from anything one my want to do, or see in the mountains. Exceeded all expectations! Great food, walking, scenery, history, and shopping. All within a short walk, or drive. Clean with all you could want or need. For me, it felt like home away from home. Patty and Randle are great host's, respected our privacy, but were there if I had any questions, or asked for any suggestions. I will definitely be back, and looking forward to it!

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

My elderly dad and I met here for a mountain getaway. The place was perfect! It had everything we needed and plenty of space. We really enjoyed sitting out on the spacious deck. Patty and Randy were such nice people. Can't wait to go back!

Clean, quiet neighborhood, convenient, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and neat and comfortable with all the amenities. Patty and Randy were very helpful in suggesting local restaurants and attractions. Patty also invited us down to the lake for the summer concert series. The band was excellent. We also enjoyed chatting with them and loved seeing the different crafts Patty is doing. We will definitely be back for a visit and stay here.

A Happy Place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! 2 Adults and one teenager... We had a friend close by and town is close by so the location was great! I walked down to Lake Tomahawk every morning to walk and pet dogs :). The cottage itself is cute as a speckled pup! Very clean, light and airy... Homey decor... It felt like we just lived there. I talked with Patty and Randall during my visit and they were such gracious hosts. I hope to visit with my husband on another trip and stay here again!

Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter, and son all enjoyed our stay at this cottage. The cottage was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. The owners were kind and hospitable - making sure we had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. Lake Tomahawk was very close by and we enjoyed the beautiful scenic views the walk around the lake offered. And the kids enjoyed some playtime at the playground at the lake. The cottage location was peaceful and was close to activities we had planned in the Asheville area.

Thanks for the enjoyable stay!
