Property Highlights

Upon entering this opulent, well-appointed post & beam log cabin, you'll be greeted with floor-to-ceiling views of the surrounding mountain landscape and the fresh scent of newly-cut wood. In the living room, you’ll find luxe leather furniture, a stone fireplace (non functional), and a faux bear skin rug adding to the cozy mountain lodge ambiance. You’ll also find the gorgeous spiral staircase that leads to the lower level apartment area that doubles as a game room (complete with a kitchenette and bathroom) and the upstairs loft area with an additional bedroom, living area complete with a 60” TV with Roku (streaming only), poker table, & an Xbox 360 that can be used for playing video games or DVDs, and an office with a connected workspace with a desk, computer monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

In the evening, use the stereo receiver built into the wall in the living room to stream the "Mountains & Whiskey" Spotify playlist filled with dreamy & soulful indie folk tracks to set the mood for your mountain getaway while creating a delicious 3 course meal in the spacious kitchen (complete with smooth surface stove, dishwasher, and granite countertops). Gather at the dining table tucked within the cabin’s circular turret offering panel views of the woodlands and peaks just outside to enjoy dinner and lifegiving conversation with the ones you love. After dinner, wander out onto the deck to watch the dusk settle in before soaking in the luxurious hot tub with a glass of wine under the clear starry sky, or sit by the cozy outdoor fire pit (firewood provided) to swap stories and share a beer. Those not quite ready for bed can go up to the loft for a game of Monopoly or rummy, or head to the basement for ping-pong. Store all your snacks and sodas in the basement’s kitchenette so you don’t have to go upstairs & risk waking others when you’re craving some munchies during those late night matches.

In the morning, brew coffee & hang the bird feeders on the deck railing to spot some colorful flyers throughout the day (please be sure to bring these in at night to avoid unwanted bears that may try to climb up & steal a nibble). Enjoy the crisp mountain breeze on your face as you sip your morning coffee without a care in the world. When you’re feeling energized, walk through the sun-filled terraced gardens (with seasonal flower cutting), or challenge yourself by embarking on a short (0.1 mile) but steep hike on the nearby nature trail that leads to the "rock garden" filled with epic natural rock formations. Beautiful in every season, these natural wonders form scintillating patterns of frost and ice in the winter and are blanketed with lush moss and wildflowers in the warmer summer months.

Situated at an altitude of 3000 ft with views of the majestic Swannanoa & Black Mountains to the north–including Mt Mitchell, the highest point east of the Mississippi–Rock Garden Roost has everything you're looking for in a mountain escape while still being just a 15 minute drive to Chimney Rock State Park (with Lake Lure just a few minutes beyond), 30 minute drive to Black Mtn., and a 45 minute drive to Asheville. With charming shops, local restaurants, and delightful attractions, the small town of Black Mtn. delivers an unforgettable small town experience while Asheville provides an eccentric series of adventures you’ll daydream about long after returning home. From the grand Biltmore Estate to the colorful River Arts District to the scenic stretches of the Blue Ridge Parkway, there’s an endless array of activities to choose from.

Please note: Water/well issue has been resolved as of April 2022. 4WD IS REQUIRED. Interior fireplace is not usable, but there is a fire pit to enjoy outside. This home is NOT pet friendly & is NON smoking. Electric Vehicle Chargeport is only compatible with Tesla vehicles. Hot tub is serviced each Wednesday.

FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Rock Garden Roost is located in Black Mountain. This home is approximately 40 minutes to downtown Black Mountain, 20 minutes to Chimney Rock, and 40 minutes to Asheville. Click on the location tab above to locate this house on a map.

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY?

If you need to cancel your reservation and the property you had reserved re-rents for the time which you had it reserved, you will be refunded all money you had paid minus a $89 cancellation fee. If you cancel and the property does not re-rent for your reserved dates, you will lose all money you have paid to that point. For this reason, we recommend that you purchase trip insurance . Please call 888-228-8008 before making a reservation if you have questions or concerns.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY AND FEE?

Rock Garden Roost is not “pet friendly”. Please be respectful of those owners who, because of allergies or other personal reasons, have chosen not to allow any pets. If housekeeping notes that a pet was present on a non-pet friendly property during your visit, you will be charged a minimum of $600 to clean carpets, upholstered furniture and complete air purification measures. Bringing a pet to a house that is not pet-friendly without owner consent or permission from Greybeard is grounds for termination of the rental agreement without refund. If you must travel with your pet, please contact us for local boarding recommendations. More info about service animals and the ADA is available here.

WILL I NEED 4WD OR AWD TO REACH THIS HOME?

Greybeard Rentals can’t guarantee that you’ll be able to reach the home in a standard vehicle. While not impossible for a standard vehicle, it may be difficult to reach without 4WD or AWD. If you are renting during winter months (December-March), please read consider adding travel insurance onto your reservation.

WHAT ARE CHECK-IN/CHECK OUT TIMES?

Check-in time is 4pm and check out time is 10am. It is important that we adhere to these times, because there is a chance that someone else will be checking out/in before or after you and we need sufficient time to ready the house for the next renter. If you wish to check-in early, there is a $50 early check-in fee that can be added on to your reservation. Early check-in is only available if someone is not checking out on the morning of your arrival.

WHERE DO WE CHECK-IN/PICK UP KEYS?

Woodhaven has a keyless entry system. You will receive a unique access code within 3 days of your arrival, allowing you to go straight to the house and check-in starting at 4pm.

WHAT IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY DURING OUR STAY?

If you are having a medical emergency, dial 911 from the phone in your rental home or cell phone.

We hope that your stay in the area will be relaxing and without incident, but should you need to get in touch with Greybeard, we have someone on call 24 hours a day. Just call our office at 828-669-1072 and dial extension 203, which will forward to the cell phone of the person on call. Please do not hesitate to call us if something needs immediate attention, but if your question or concern can wait, we ask that you call the office during normal office hours.

WHEN IS THE SECURITY DEPOSIT REFUNDED?

Security deposits are returned within 30 days of guest departure.

WILL THERE BE FIREWOOD AT THE HOUSE? 

Rock Garden Roost has a wood burning fireplace and fire pit for guests to use. Firewood is not supplied by Greybeard. Some houses will have small supply of firewood for renter use; however, it is best to purchase your own small bundle of wood or Duraflame pressed logs at the local grocery store. 

Cutting branches, limbs or trees on the property is strictly prohibited. You can use limbs found on the ground. 

IS WIFI SERVICE INCLUDED WITH MY RENTAL RESERVATION? WILL I HAVE CELL PHONE SERVICE AT MY RENTAL?

Wifi is available at Rock Garden Roost, but is offered via satellite (20 Mbps download, 10 Mbps upload). Please note that Greybeard Rentals does not guarantee internet connectivity or speed. Each individual homeowner contracts directly with an internet service provider, and due to a variety of reasons, Greybeard does not guarantee service. Our Black Mountain and Asheville offices have wifi service available if needed.

Cell phone service is not guaranteed. You may check with your service provider to see if service is available.

The house was perfect. Beautiful views and had everything we needed. We enjoyed the ping pong table, fire pit and hot tub as well. The dry/cut wood was convenient for our evening fires. The house was well stocked. The beds were comfy. The views were spectacular!
