As your hosts, our goal is to meet or exceed your expectations! You'll feel right at home in this cozy farmhouse which is an easy walk to downtown Black Mountain on the Flat Creek Greenway where you can bike or walk into town! Located between Black Mountain and Montreat, it's also very close to Ridgecrest.
Situated on three-quarters of an acre, there are woods behind the house, and two grassy side-yards. One side yard is open with a rolling lawn where you can set up a badminton game, horseshoes, or corn hole toss or kick around a soccer ball. The other has a privacy fence and a raised dais that houses a table and chairs for outside dining. We have a grill and we may put in a gas firepit in 2019.
The house has a wrought iron fence from 1907 across the front and one side that lends extra charm. Also unique are the two porches, one above the other on the front of the house, with wonderful mountain views!
The 1st story porch has wooden rocking chairs and a loveseat glider. The 2nd story porch opens from the master bedroom so you can enjoy your coffee on the porch or watch the sunset and mountain views!
When you walk into this charming, compact house you walk right into the first floor great room. The kitchen is on the right, the table is in front of you and the living room is to your left.
The small kitchen includes full sized refrigerator, 4 burner stove & oven, microwave, Mr. Coffee coffeemaker, 4 slice toaster, blender, mixer, and a full set of pots and pans to make a delicious dinner. Plating for 10!
We also stock coffee, coffee filters, ketchup, mustard, herbal and green teas, salt, pepper, spices, dish soap and paper towels. Everything you need to create a nice meal!
The kitchen table has two drop leaves so it can be set up for 2 people, 4 people or 6 people (more if they are small!).
The living room has a new couch that folds out into a full size memory foam bed. It also has a recliner chair and a bookcase stocked with local maps, menus, shopping, and local event pamphlets. You'll also find lots of games and puzzles for kids and the kids at heart.
The first floor has a small bedroom with a new queen size Simmons mattress with memory foam topper. We also supply two luggage racks and on the walls are two sets of old fashioned hooks to hang up clothes.
Upstairs is what guests have called, "the family suite!"
At the top of the stairs is the Landing Room which is perfect for watching TV on the futon that converts to a full-size bed with a spring futon mattress.
Through the Landing Room is the Master bedroom, also with a new queen size Simmons mattress with memory foam topper. It is furnished with antique oak furniture.
Through the Master Bedroom is the bright and cheery Bunk Room with a set of bunk beds with new memory foam mattresses. While the rooms are small, there are enough sleeping areas to sleep 10 people - 6 upstairs and 4 downstairs. Please know that you do have to pass through the Master bedroom to reach the Bunk Room.
All curtains throughout the house are thick, room darkening curtains for your sleeping pleasure. If you are super sensitive to light, feel free to bring a sleeping mask.
Extra pillows & blankets are also available for use.
There is a bathroom on each floor. The first-floor bathroom sports a large walk-in shower with subway tile surrounding it.
The second-floor bathroom has a brand new 4' claw foot tub with a shower surround. Fun and super quaint!
Luxury, oversized bath towels, hand towels, and washcloths are available for everyone. We also supply soap, shampoo, a hairdryer, and a magnified make up mirror in each bathroom.
Families: We welcome families and have plenty of sleeping spaces. We also have a Pack n' Play that has a bassinet for a newborn; the bassinet comes out so an older baby or smaller toddler can use it. (Please note: It is smaller than your normal Pack n' Play). We have foam bunk rails for the bottom bunk so your older toddler won't roll out of bed! We also supply a baby gate that you can use; we don't recommend any small children be left alone on the 2nd floor.
Families & Business Travelers: We have high-speed internet available all over the property, plus have a new 32" Smart TV that has Sling TV. Sling offers over 45 channels including your favorite networks, sports, and children's shows.
Laundry: we have a small stackable washer/dryer unit and supply laundry detergent, enough for 2-3 loads.
We were under construction adding the 2nd bathroom and laundry room for six months and every time we were outside during construction, local people would stop by asking to see it. It's a unique house and is very well known in the local area. We are so glad we could give it some love and turn it into a fabulous short-term rental. Please come enjoy it!
It is fully equipped with everything you would need to have an amazing weekend or extended stay!
Single-night requests are welcome only on a last-minute basis, or in the case of a single-night opening on the calendar. That being said, if you need a single night and see availability on our calendar please feel free to send us a message.
We occasionally allow short-haired dogs on a case by case basis. There is a $150 Pet Deposit that must be paid in advance; it will be refunded in full if there are no issues. The dog must be crated if left in the house without adults and we may ask to see the crate when you arrive. We really are serious that a dog can't be left alone!Get the full listing »
