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.

This is sweet quiet place on a street of modest cottages. There is a wonderful garden in front and a porch swing to enjoy it. The master bedroom is away from the street and looks out on a garden. It's a short walk to town.

This cottage was a great spot to stay while our daughter was at camp nearby. It was clean, well-stocked, nicely decorated and very comfortable. Comfortable beds and bedding made us feel at home, and there were really nice places to sit outside amid wildflowers. Bonus points for butterflies greeting us at every turn. Our host was very friendly when she stopped by to welcome us, and we enjoyed talking to her about great restaurants and activities in the area. The cottage could not have been in a better spot for taking walks to the nearby lake and downtown Black Mountain. Thanks for sharing your beautiful cottage, we'll definitely be back! (Lisa)

We really enjoyed our stay with Mary and Fritz. The house was clean and simply but very nicely furnished, and we loved the porch swing out front. Mary was very accommodating and quick to respond to my questions, and the house was very close to downtown Black Mountain.

This is the perfect place to stay in Black Mountain!! We were seconds from downtown Black Mountain. We were visiting my daughter at camp and it was so convenient! We were able to be in Asheville in 15 minutes and it is also convenient to all our favorite hikes. Mary is the perfect hostess and greeted us with flowers and candy!! This is our new favorite place to stay in town.

We had spent time in Black Mountain last month, so had the luxury of visiting the apartment in person before booking. Lovely space, so close to town. We are already booked in June and ready to book July again. Mary is a great hostess and was responsive to needs and requests. It made the business trip pleasurable!

Mary gave us a home away, she made us a nice welcome fresh flower bouquet. Communication is great. Highly recommend her home, 2 rooms and 2 baths in a very nice-quiet neighborhood. We were attending conference for the week and would definitely comeback anytime we get a chance.
