My husband and I stayed at Arbor House for two nights in the Lookout Suite. The location of this bed and breakfast is great for getting away from it all while being central to Black Mountain. We absolutely loved the Lookout Suite and it's wonderful view and balcony overlooking the water/mountains. Our room was spacious, well appointed, comfortable bed and...

As beautiful as the photos are, they don't really do it justice; Arbor House is a truly lovely space to lay your head and spend your time.

Now I see why you are in journalism. What a beautiful review. As always, we humbly appreciate our guests who give us an extra boost. Jim really did like getting creative with your breakfast. This is the first time we tried Portabello mushrooms with ground sausage and avacado puree. It tasted great to us and so glad you liked it....

My family and I spent Christmas at Arbor House and had the most wonderful time. The location is perfect for accessing all nearby attractions; Black Mountain is walkable, only a short drive to Asheville, the mountains are beautiful to look at and easy to explore from this base. The House is beautifully appointed. The rooms were very clean and stylish....

It was such a joy to have you here for Christmas. It felt like you were part of the family while you were at Arbor House, and felt a bit sad when you left. We really enjoyed our chocolates and presents from your country. We rarely get to know our guests so well and enjoyed the lighthearted and enlightening conversations....

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.
