This apartment is a calm restful retreat located within walking distance to downtown Black Mountain and Lake Tomahawk. We are 2 blocks from the weekly farmers market held each Saturday morning throughout summer. The apartment is extremely private with a separate entrance, parking and two outside sitting areas but does adjoin owners home on one wall.
The property is an official Certified Wildlife Habitat® site with the National Wildlife Federation and North Carolina Wildlife Federation.

The space

As a certified wildlife habitat site, the gardens and yard are a friend of wildlife and are helping birds, butterflies and other local wildlife. That is one reason many weeds such as the dandelion will be left. This dandelion is used by hummingbirds to build their nests. In addition, no pesticides are used. This certification puts us one habitat closer to the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge, a national effort to restore critical habitat for pollinators.

Guest access

The owners do have two dogs that use the backyard. There are also two older cats that may be in the outside areas. Therefore the backyard is not suitable for guests. There is a private sitting area next to the apartment and a garden swing in front.

Other things to note

The owner has 2 dogs and 2 cats. The dogs will not have access to any Airbnb space. The cats will not come inside but will visit the outdoor area.

Super cozy and welcoming. Very clean, with all amenities needed for a mountain get away. Private, yet right in the downtown area. Really comfortable sleeping arrangements, and anything else needed.

We had a wonderful stay. Comfortable, convenient and felt like home. Loved the personal touches like the books and artwork. We definitely hope we can return on our next visit to Black Mountain. Would highly recommend.

This was a lovely place to stay for us, two friends, who wanted a quiet and comfortable few days before our long trip back to Australia. The location is walking distance to the Bear Mountain shops and restaurants and good driving distance to the attractions of Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We were very happy with the accommodation, both having a bathroom and wonderfully comfortable beds. It was also nice to be greeted at the door by a gorgeous cat and to find some yummy doughnuts waiting for us inside.

What a wonderful home in Black Mountain. Mary was a wonderful host! We really enjoyed being able to walk into town for brunch or coffee and to be close enough to Asheville to meet up with friends and family over the weekend. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a hidden gem. It looks small from the outside, but has two lovely well furnished bedrooms and two baths. Modern well equipped kitchen, lovely front garden with a porch swing to sit & enjoy coffee or tea in the mornings. Mary will go out of her way to take care of you. Quiet walkable neighborhood. Mary has two dogs that live in the backyard, but I never saw them. Top of our list for a repeat visit!
