We Celebrated our First Year Anniversary

Jim and I are so happy to celebrate our first year business anniversary.  Our view from our Secret Garden spot.  We love our beautiful Black Mountain with the art and music events, 33+ shops, and 40+ restaurants.  The people are so friendly and welcome dogs in town.  We do go to Asheville for special occasions since it is only 15 minutes away, but always glad to come back to our relaxing town.  During an interview, I was asked “What are your best memories in the past year? Mother and Daughters, friends and families getting together under one roof.  There is so much laughter and warmth in the air. Making permanent friends with people who stay here.  I love knowing my repeat guests and we have a great talks.  A few of them are now living here in Black Mountain. Our first wedding.  A lovely couple had their second wedding here on site.  A couple of their friends came to stay with them for three days.  It was more work than we had originally thought, but it was so fun to get the experience and be part of such a happy occasion.   How did the tag line “The most breath-taking […]

Beautiful first day of May with Azaleas and Rhododendrons Blooming

Our guests have started to get up early just to have their cup of coffee or tea out on the deck.  They are memorized by the beauty of the mountains, glistening Lake Tomahawk, and our blooming gardens. Yesterday morning our guests ate outside on the deck and talked about the cute new goslings on the lake.   Our hikers trekked the Greybeard trail.  They loved the Montreat trails and was so happy to find such a great trail and it was within eight minutes of Arbor House of Black Mountain.  We moved a bench to a private place on the property  overlooking the Pisgah Forest and it is being taken full advantage.   Most of our guests walked into town to one of our many Black Mountain quaint stores and awesome restaurants.   We had two couples for their anniversary.  They celebrated at wonderful restaurants in nearby Asheville.   What a way to start the season.  We are looking forward to seeing more travelers to our “Home away from Home”.

Improvements to Lake Tomahawk December 7th, 2015 to March 1st 2016

Arbor House of Black Mountain will  be providing a 15% discount to all rooms this winter except holidays. In December, Lake Tomahawk will be drained in order to remove 5,000 cubic yards of muck. It will alter Lake Tomahawk’s landscape of one of Black Mountain’s most popular attractions this winter. The process is meant to improve the appearance and water quality of the lake. It will be drained completely and empty for as long as three months. Work begins after the Circle of Lights, the first weekend of December. Dredging is expected to begin at least a month after the lake is drained. The sediment will be drying for the month allowing it to be pushed into rows for further drying before removal. Silt in the lake leads to lower water levels in an already shallow body of water, which increases the water temperature. Shallow, warm water is a breeding ground for bacteria. Improvements to Lake Tomahawk’s water quality will improve the quality of the Swannanoa River.
