Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the second time we have rented Cardinal's View cottage, and we came back because it is exactly what we want in a vacation rental. The cottage is in an excellent location, in a quiet neighborhood in Black Mountain. While it is in town and in a neighborhood, it's not as if the neighbors are right on top of you. We've done the remote cabin bit, and we love that this is just as quiet, but within walking distance of downtown, and only a few minutes from the supermarket. And Black Mountain is a great base for day trips to Asheville and the surrounding area.

The cottage itself is just perfect. Everything you could want for a relaxing vacation is here. The house was spotless when we arrived. The bed was super comfy. There are plenty of towels--not one of those vacation rentals where two guests equals two towels for the week. The washer and dryer are in the basement, and I appreciated that they are full size appliances. We like to cook dinner in, and this kitchen is so well equipped. Kitchen essentials are available for guests' use as well, with the understanding that you'll restock anything you use up. So I didn't need to pack up my entire spice rack.

We absolutely love this place, and I can't see us staying anywhere else when we return to the area.

An Amazing Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is amazing! Everything was wonderful! We will definitely stay here again if we are ever in the Black Mountain area again. The cabin is located a few minutes from downtown Black Mountain. Perfect location! The inside looks incredible with all of the new renovations. This cabin is a must stay!

A Vacation Forever Remembered!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Cardinal's Nest and it absolutely met my expectations! As a mom, with small children, I wanted a well decorated, Extremely clean place, with minimal low-lying clutter, wood floors, one-story- no stairs, etc. This was our first trip as a Family of Four.........This home MADE our trip. A hotel or many other homes would not have met our needs. A warm, cozy place indeed and we feel lucky to have found it. We spend most of our time in the kitchen and family room in our 'normal life', so the layout of this place was truly perfect. Loved opening the windows and getting fresh mountain air; and using the fireplace when it was a little chilly. A friendly and completely safe-feeling neighborhood!!! My daughter has gone on and on about "our mountain house". The yard is lovely and we spent time admiring. The little porch was enjoyable for us and the children; and also when we had a visit with Mike (the home owner). Mike is excellent in his communication about the property! We will be back!!

Black Mountain is such a friendly, local foods/grass roots, charming town!

Home away from Home in Black Mountain

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Cardinal's View for a month visiting family and exploring the area for a possible relocation. The cottage is just as pictured, although photos cannot capture the coziness, comfort and peacefulness of the home and neighborhood. The porch was the perfect setting for coffee in the morning and drinks in the evening. The gas fireplace was used often, even in the spring. I love to cook and the kitchen was first rate, especially the gas stove :-). Everything you could possibly need was provided, even down to a nicely stocked seasoning pantry. Downtown Black Mountain is a charming small town, and just a quick walk from the house. If you love all this and the sound of chirping birds with mountain views, then this is the place for you. Mike is an attentive, thoughtful host who truly enjoys sharing his special place in Black Mountain. Lucky us, lucky you!

LOVED everything about this cottage. Every detail thought of in the comforts of home. Tucked into a quiet street close to downtown Black Mountain. We will be back again!

Wonderful play to stay

  • 5 of 5

Cardinal's View is a great place to enjoy a quiet get away in beautiful Black Mountain, NC. This is our third or fourth time to stay in this charming house. Located on a quiet street very close to town, it is perfect for relaxing and "getting away from it all." The kitchen is equipped with everything you need, the beds are comfortable, and the house is always very clean. The owner responds quickly to email and is very accommodating. We look forward to staying at Cardinal's View again in the future.
