Great House, Nice view

The house was great! The game room was extraordinary! Located central to the town and very easy to find. We were very pleased with the entire trip with the exception of the driveway. It was nerve wracking making that hairpin turn as you faced the side of the mountain. Definitely come in the daytime so you can see the dangerous driveway before having to navigate in the dark. The home was rustic and very charming. We loved our stay and would return!
Manager response on 2017-10-25 - Response from Greybeard Rentals
I'm so glad you loved your stay at The View! Yes, we totally agree that the driveway can be a bit daunting the first time, but many guests say they get accustomed to it after the first time. Thanks for the feedback.

"The View" was excellent. Comfortable beds and funiture, fully decked out game room, nice kitchen.

Very close to downtown and the golf course, but still secluded.

The only minor complaint was that there was no grill available, but it was a small sacrifice.

We got to see a mama bear with 4 cubs stroll down our driveway after breakfast on the first morning, too.

We recently rented The View for a long weekend to celebrate my birthday with friends. We were immediately in love with the house upon driving in. The view really is breathtaking, even in the rain! The house was in perfect condition and we made ourselves at home right away. The game room provided endless entertainment and the living spaces were very comfortable for our group. We would have lived on the porch had it not been so cold outside! Highly recommend staying here and we certainly hope to stay again soon!
Manager response on 2017-05-16 - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Wonderful! I'm glad you had a great birthday celebration at The View. Sorry for the unseasonably cooler temperatures during your not typical for May, but the transition from winter to spring can sometimes have cooler days. So glad you'll be back! We look forward to that and hopefully will have warmer days next time so you can sit on the porch to enjoy the view more! - Greybeard Rentals team

We had a wonderful time at The View. The pictures of the game room don't do it justice - it has much more stuff than is pictured. Our kids (and adults) were entertained for hours. The kitchen is well stocked, and there are more DVDs than an old Blockbuster. The driveway is intense, but if you park at the base and back up to the reflector lights, it makes it easier. Best of all, the house is only about 6 minutes into downtown Black Mountain. We will definitely be back!

I have nothing negative to say about my stay at The View. We had five adults and two children in town for a wedding, and this house gave us plenty of space for us to spread out and enough entertainment options to keep the kids busy for many visits to come.

The game room downstairs is incredible, and there are options there for adults down to 4 and 5 year olds. The wifi didn't work while we were there, but we never even bothered to call about it. After all, if you're going to go off the grid, this is the place you'd want to do it.

The wedding kept us busy for a good portion of the time we were there. I would love to come back on a warmer weekend when I could enjoy some of the books on hand out on the porch. But even in the dead of winter, the views are still outstanding from the windows.

As other reviewers have noted, the driveway is an adventure, but that's a small price to pay for all this plays has to offer.
Manager response on 2017-03-23 - Response from Greybeard Rentals
So glad you enjoyed the time at The View. The View isn't advertised with wifi as it is one of the few homes in our program that does not provide it. Come back soon!

My wife and I enjoyed a weekend at this lovely guesthouse. The View is just beautiful and we couldn't have asked for more. Greybeard provided some lovely pumpkin bread to settle in, and everything was very clean and well kept. I didn't expect to, but we had a fabulous time one evening playing pinball after sunset - took us back a few years!

Thanks to the owners for building such a beautiful and welcoming place.

Renting was a simple process with no hidden fees or surprises. Greybeard provided great service and support. The house was ready on time, clean, and fully prepared for guests. The actual mountain view surpassed expectation and the property was secure and quiet. The gameroom was an unexpected delight. The location provided easy access to Asheville and Boone attractions while being a peaceful retreat to come back to after busy days. I plan to rent again next year.

The view from The View is amazing. After four years vacationing here, I am still impressed by the beauty of the surroundings. The only drawback if that is the right word, is the driveway and the "drop off" at the end of the concrete slab. Good updates, e.g. pool table, ping pong, etc.

We had a very great time and the cabin was perfect and lived up to its name. The only thing I would suggest is that the master bedroom gets a new bed. It is very squeaky and noisy when you roll over and get in or out of bed. Other than that, we had really enjoyed the property.

Very nice; the weather was exceptionally cool, and as always, the view from the porch is fantastic. The driveway leading into the house is a bit challenging, made more so by the gap between the end of the driveway and the ground.

The property location and house itself was beautiful! The inside was a warm and cozy feeling but very spacious. The only problem we had was there were wasps in both upstairs bedrooms that scared the children, so they ended up sleeping downstairs. The property management company was incredibly helpful in helping me find the perfect location. Overall, I'd recommend it to anyone staying in the area.

Great views, great cabin, great vacation

We loved our vacation at the View in Black Mountain. The whole trip surpassed our expectations. We were able to completely relax and enjoy the mountain views out on the gorgeous wraparound porch furnished with rocking chairs each day. The whirlpool tub in the master bath was awesome! The drive up to the cabin was daunting but if you arrive during daylight hours it will help. We drove our Honda Civic automatic in with no issues. Once we arrived and saw the view and the cabin we knew the steep trip in is absolutely worth it!
