One never knows what one will get when booking online -- especially a B&B. The photos usually look wonderful but when you arrive you are usually disappointed. Not so with Arbor House of Black Mountain! The home and surrounding area and Lake Tomahawk are just as nice as the photos depict. Even better, Theresa is a wonderful innkeeper. The small...

My wife and I knew only one thing when we were deciding on our honeymoon: we wanted to be near Asheville, NC. We wanted to hike; we wanted to visit town, see the Biltmore. We got to do all those things on our trip, but the glue that held it all together was the courtesy, warmth, and excellent care given...

Windows all around surrounding you with the best view in Black Mtn! The weather permitted us to sleep with them open all night like a sleeping porch with just the sounds of the Canadian geese to put us to sleep. Very comfortable bed and a sleeper sofa for my son. Spacious with gleaming wood floors, a small fridge, microwave, coffee...

The location of Arbor House is perfect in every way. It is nestled in the middle of many mountains, with it's own lake, walking trails, and within 15 minutes of Asheville. The house itself is beautiful and the grounds fit it perfectly. It was quiet and peaceful. The owners were awesome and really go above and beyond to make your...

We stayed at Arbor House for a long weekend and had a wonderful time. Arbor House is within walking distance to Black Mountain yet far enough away to enjoy peace and relaxation. AH overlooks Lake Tomahawk and is so peaceful and serene. Theresa and Jim were wonderful hosts and made the Inn feel like it was our own home. Breakfast...

I am glad to see you made it back to New York. Hopefully, the winter storm in the Northeast did not impact you too much. It was nice to have you here and really enjoyed learning about the conference. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Take Care! Theresa
