Property Highlights

Retro charm & contemporary style abound at this lovingly-restored and recently remodeled home that embraces Mid-century modern design. From the warm wood paneling and five-panel glass door to the large windows and vibrant color palette that beautifully converges with earthy browns and greys, you’ll instantly feel inspired to explore and relax at this inviting and stylish mountain hideaway.

In the morning, enjoy your coffee on the spacious back deck while you listen to the wind rustling the trees and look out at the seasonal mountain views. When you’re ready, travel 1 mile into downtown Black Mountain. Known as the “Front Porch of Western North Carolina,” you’ll spot the iconic red rocking chairs throughout this treasured small town that stand as your reminder to slow down, pull up a chair, and relax. Filled with novelty shops, art galleries, and boutiques, you can easily spend the entire day shopping for local goodies to help you remember your time in the mountains.

For breakfast, stop into Open Oven Brunch + Bakery where you can enjoy southern favorites paired with an AppalaChai on their covered open-air patio. As your morning coffee begins to wear off, walk across the street to the Dripolator Coffeehouse in the center of town. Along that street, you’ll find the Swannanoa Valley Museum and the Black Mountain Center for the Arts where you can explore regional history and art. For lunch, walk around the block to enjoy authentic Cuban cuisine at Cousin’s Cuban Cafe, or pop into any of the many locally-owned restaurants along Cherry Street.

For avid hikers, Montreat is a quick 5-minute drive, and Lookout Mountain is a great trail that's just under a mile long and offers stunning panoramic mountain views. Also in Montreat is the epic 4.8-mile Graybeard trail that offers incredible views (especially in the fall during the peak color-changing foliage). As a reward for your hike, grab a refreshing beer at Black Mountain Brewing or Lookout Brewing before heading over to Lake Tomahawk Park, where you can play a round of tennis, or read your favorite book on one of the benches as you watch the ducks bathe.

In the evening, craft a delicious meal at your vacation home using fresh produce and artisanal local products you grabbed at the Black Mountain Tailgate Market and The Grocery in the Village of Cheshire, or sit down to dinner at Que Sera + Tayloe’s Oyster Bar. For an after-dinner drink, head to the newest rooftop bar, The Bell Tower, for a refreshing cocktail and breathtaking panoramic mountain views. End your perfect day by watching the sunset on the back deck while gathered around the cozy fire pit.

Like the book of its namesake, Whistle Stop perfectly weaves together the past and the present to create a mountain retreat that is charming as it is contemporary, and with a railroad crossing nearby, you will even hear an occasional train whistle blowing in the distance!

FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Whistle Stop is located in Black Mountain. This home is approximately a 5-minute drive to downtown Black Mountain and a 20-minute drive 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 $75 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.

WHEN IS THE SECURITY DEPOSIT REFUNDED?

Security deposits are returned within 30 days of guest departure.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY AND FEE?

Whistle Stop is specified as "pet friendly." Unfortunately, due to common allergy problems, we cannot allow cats. For the privilege of bringing your dog, there is a minimum charge of $100 nonrefundable fee per pet. A maximum of two dogs are allowed unless you have received special permission from the property manager or homeowner. Any damage that may be caused by your pet during your stay will be paid for out of your security deposit or charged to the credit card we have on file. There is a county-wide leash law in place. When taking your dog outside of a gated area, please ensure that they are on a leash. 

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?

You will receive check-in instructions prior to your arrival with driving directions and key access information. You do not need to stop by our office to pick up your keys. You will 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 select option 1, 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.

IS THERE AN OUTDOOR FIRE PIT? 

This home has an outdoor gas fire bowl. Absolutely NO fires are permitted outside unless the property is fitted with a fire ring/fire pit, and you cannot bring your own portable fire pit. 

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

Wifi is available at Whistle Stop. 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.
