My husband and I stayed at the Arbor House one night and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Arbor House is beautiful with a wonderful view of the lake and mountain in the background.

It was a brief stay, but it was nice to have you and your friends stay with us and chat for a while. We had a cold snap this past week and was really wanting to be south. It is slowly warming back up to normal winter temps. Thank you so much for your recommendation. I was just at a...

OMG...I really wanted your expert opinion since you said you tasted the best bacon in Asheville. If I would have had my head together, I would have made some on the side for you to try. Just so happens, we already had our menu together for the weekend and it did not work out. You and your husband are lovely...

Upstairs room, spacious but cozy, well appointed bathroom. Steps from Lake Tomahawk and its walking path, easy walking distance from downtown Black Mountain and all the restaurants and local ale houses. The view of the mountains from the deck is breathtaking. Owner operators are friendly, knowledgeable, and very accommodating.

Loved your heading! The view of the Pisgah Forest and Blue Ridge and the lake is very different than other B&B's in the area. Just a short walk around the lake to see the Seven Sisters and Swannanoa Mountains. Our location says it all. We are glad you liked our homemade breakfasts as we try to use local products, when...

My husband and I visited in September. The Arbor House is beautiful, with a walking path around the lake, beautiful gardens on the grounds, and very welcoming innkeepers. Large room and attached large bathroom. Breakfast was delicious. A great place to stay and explore Black Mountain, or the surrounding area.

Our visit to Arbor House began when we were greeted by the Innkeeper, Theresa, and told to treat her home as our home which we did. From the generously sized bedroom to the welcoming and well appointed common areas, the small boutique B&B (only four bedrooms) met or exceeded our every need. Days began with a walk around Lake Tomahawk...
