Reunions and Group Planning

We have put together some of our most accommodating rentals for large groups to make it easier for your to begin planning your family reunion or group vacation.


In another quaint in-town neighborhood, Cheshire Village in Black Mountain, we have Sparrow Cottage, Ravenscroft, Hatton House, Dogwood Treehouse, Winnie's Place, Tranquility Treehouse and Maison Reve all within walking distance of each other. Cheshire also boasts wonderful outdoor spaces for large groups to gather and enjoy the wonderful mountain air. There is a community playground and several common green spaces to enjoy as well as 2 wonderful restaurants and a gourmet market/coffee shop.

Lake Tomahawk Rentals

Located within a mile of downtown Black Mountain, Lake Tomahawk Park offers stunning views of the Seven Sisters mountain range, a walking trail around the lake, picnic areas, playground, tennis courts and more! Rentals that are located in this area are highly sought after. Here are some homes that are located within a half a mile of the lake, some of which sit directly beside the lake. Lacy Field Cottage, Lake Tomahawk Retreat, and Lakeview Knoll are directly beside the lake. Tulip Cottage and Hummingbird Cottage are also in close proximity, though not right beside the lake. 


However, if you want to find a bit more seclusion we have additional groupings of vacation rentals that are located farther out in the mountains surrounding Asheville and Black Mountain.

High Rock Acres

Byrd's Nest and Sterling Retreat are located on one gravel road in the rustic mountain community of High Rock Acres about 15 minutes from Black Mountain.

Laurel Ridge

High Haven, Orchard Knob, Laurel Ridge Retreat are just a short drive from each other in another gated mountain community called Laurel Ridge with exceptional views.

Fairview/Davey Crockett Road

Baker's Bluff and Larson Lookout are located on the same road within walking distance of one another and all offer some amazing views. The excellent Fairview location offers beautiful seclusion with an easy drive to Asheville.

Gateway Mountain Community

The Gateway Mountain community is a secluded, beautiful development with sweeping mountain views, a private lake, and even its own waterfall. The development is located in Old Fort, North Carolina, just 20-25 minutes from Black Mountain, North Carolina and 35-40 minutes from Asheville. Serenity Lake Cabin, Hillside Lake House and Eagle's Nest all sit around Lake George and have lake access. Within a quick drive, is Kitty's Cabin

Secluded Sanctuary, Dancing Bears Cabin, and Havencrest are other homes within the development and are located within quick drive time of one another within the Gateway Mountain community.
