Migration Station was the perfect home base for our week in the Asheville area. My husband and I were first time visitors to the area and this home in Black Mountain was a great location, offered comfort, and was so cute! We loved Black Mountain and Migration Station. It was an important part of a perfect vacation!

After a busy 6 months of working endlessly this place was a nice way to get away from everything. Tucked into woods as if we were secluded from the rest of the world while only being 5 minutes away from Black Mtn. Perfect place to be alone and recharge and forget what is happening in the rest of the world.

We decided at the last minute to take a getaway. I was experiencing extra stress and needed a place I could find my center. David found Imagination Station on Wednesday night. We booked the cottage as we walked out the door Thursday from WV. When we arrived we were in awe! We couldn't believe how beautiful the place was. The craftsmanship inside and out was amazing. What a perfect place for my soul! Black Mountain is beautiful and full of kind people. The food was beyond excellent! We can't wait to visit again and stay at Migration Station.
Thanks for allowing us to bring our dog too! We feel honored to have stayed at such a peaceful place. Only thing that could have been better was to have met the owners!!!

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Asheville, and now a full decade later we decided to spend our 10 year anniversary there and it could not have been better. We loved the Migration Station and highly recommend it. The house is so nice and comfortable. There are plenty of places to spend time doing what you like inside and out and to top it all off when we walked in for the first time there was homemade pumpkin bread waiting on us. We were charmed!

This was a great location with short drive to both Black Mountain and Montreat... even saw 2 cubs and mamma bear while driving into town from this area. Very private setting for our 25th anniversary with several outdoor areas to read and relax. It had a full kitchen and washer-dryer, but no dishwasher. The wood and stone work on the house was a nice touch as well. We did several hikes in Montreat as well as jumped on the Blue Ridge Parkway to do a few more. We could have ate at the Black Mountain Bistro every night, but there are many other great restaurants like the Trailhead. Also, found Pisgah brewery and Black Mtn Cidarworks right next door to each other which became our evening hangouts. Nice people everywhere in Black Mountain!
Manager response on 2015-08-04 - Response from Greybeard Rentals
So glad you had an enjoyable 25th anniversary celebration - congrats! That's great that you enjoyed the stay and found some of the 'local favorites' for dining in Black Mountain. We'd love to have you back - let us know if we help with a future rental!

This was a very cozy 2 day getaway for my wife (Marcia) and me("Pineapple"). We loved Migration Station! It is unique and charming. It is very convenient to the heart of Black Mountain and to Montreat yet nicely isolated. Although we weren't able to take full advantage of the outdoor bar and patio areas (because of the ice storm that came through), that gives us a reason to revisit. We'll be back someday to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of spring and fall there. Thank you.

We stayed at Migration Station for our honeymoon and could not have been more impressed! It was the perfect place to relax -- such a sweet, cozy atmosphere. The area, Black Mountain, is wonderful, too! We would stay in Black Mountain any day over Asheville. The quaint, adorable mountain town had just enough going on to keep us busy, without the hectic Asheville traffic. We ate dinner at the Red Rocker Inn, just a few miles away, and it was the best meal we had the entire trip.

We would highly recommend this cabin, area, and rental company to anyone and were more than pleased with our stay!

We loved our time in Black Mountain and plan to return again very soon! Migration station was a great property. I would have given this property 5 stars across the board but the only issue we had was the cabin had a strong cleaning solution smell. Not sure what it was coming from. We did a little investigating and determined it must be the floors (they looked like they had been buffed or waxed). The smell softened throughout our stay but it was constant. Again, the cabin was spotless but it could have used an open window and a fan on before we got there.

Glad you enjoyed your time in Black Mountain, and happy one year anniversary! Sorry about the cleaning solution smell. Will check with housekeeping about that this inconvenienced your stay! We hope to welcome you back again.

We had a delightful time at Migration Station, located several miles from Montreat, NC. Pet friendly, remote and very clean, we had a fantastic time just hanging out away from the world!

This is our second Greybeard trip and I'm super impressed with how organized the check-in/check-out experience is. Our first trip a few years ago was good, but this trip was great thanks to the fantastic written instructions and the phone app that they've released. Our property was great as usual. Strongly recommend if you're looking for a low hassle experience.
