“Perfect spot for us”
Reviewed 14 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We needed room for 2 adults and 3 elementary school age children, and this house was perfect. Right size, right price, right location, and super well maintained / updated, and well stocked for guests. We felt comfortable right away. I particularly liked the key pickup process at a nearby store - no issues with timing or coordination!

Liked best: I thought the location and amenities of the house made the price very reasonable. The charm of a 1920's house cannot be beat.
Liked least: That the house had another booking and we couldn't stay longer!

“Wonderful, Comfortable, Home Close to Downtown Black Mountain”
Reviewed 8 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

people found this review helpful

My Fiance and I decided to come to Black Mountain and stay at Slow Pace Cottage after a wonderful experience there in November of 2014. In my email to Belinda, I mentioned that my fiance and I hoped to do some wedding planning during our trip. When we arrived at the cottage, we found it festively decorated with a tree and other holiday items. Under the tree was a gift for us, it contained a book about wedding traditions. This is just one example of the very thoughtful, and personal, attention you receive when you rent the cottage.

The cottage is also very nicely appointed. The bedrooms are squeaky clean and the beds are comfortable. My fiance and I slept very well. It has a large yard, and back patio,with a nice seating area and grill. It also has a nice seating area with a large variety of board games.

The cottage is very convenient to downtown Black Mountain. A 10 minute walk, or two minute drive, gives you access to a number of good restaurants and shops. Go a little farther and you can get a wonderful brew at Dynamite Coffee, or a tasty adult beverage at Pisgah Brewing Company. For breakfast, Louise's is a must.

I honestly can not say enough complimentary things about our experience. My fiance and I have decided to make trips to Black Mountain a tradition and plan to come back to Slow Pace Cottage many, many, more times in the years to come. Do yourself a favor and stay here.

“Perfect Stay!”
Reviewed 6 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We stayed at Slow Pace Cottage in Black Mountain and had a fabulous time. The property was better than expected; exceptionally well decorated and clean. The space was more than pictured. Belinda, the property manager, was extremely accommodating and could not have been more pleasant. She provided everything we needed. The cottage is less then a mile away from the town center and an easy walk. We didn't get to use the back covered patio, but I recommend bringing the appropriate warm weather gear to enjoy the lovely outdoor space they created, fire pit and all! We will definitely be back :)
