“Wedding weekend at the Monte Vista”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

Just got back from a weekend wedding at the Monte Vista -- couldn't have been better! The guests and bridal party took over the inn and it was a "home away from home." The reception at the Monte Vista was wonderful -- food, drink and lots of room(s) to sit, chat, dance and eat as well as a lovely patio off the bar.
No TVs made it peaceful. Rooms very clean and decorated in a tasteful manner. Great fun to walk around downtown Black Mountain without having to drive and park. We also spent a day in Asheville (about 20 mins away) seeing the sights. In fact, Monte Vista would be a great spot to stay instead of teeming Asheville, and weekday visits to both Black Mountain and Asheville would eliminate the weekend traffic and congestion issues, so consider that.

I think we all would go back just for a visit! Thanks to Barney and Sue for their hospitality!

We loved the ambiance of the inn as soon as we arrived, and were relieved to find that the renovations included individually controlled air conditioning in our lovely king room. It was very quiet midweek during our stay and we enjoyed chatting with Sue and admiring the artwork.

Monte Vista Hotel is outstanding. Location is fantastic for strolling through downtown without parking hassles. Accomodations are Extremely clean, and roomy. Great front porch. Owners are awesome folks.

Room Tip: Grab a corner room as they are very bright.

Had a great time staying @ the "Monte Vista". So friendly, talked to the owner Sue and I think together we solved the problems of the world....no TV's....great...talked to more people in the lobby of the hotel then I have in years. We all hung out and drink a glass of wine. Staff very efficient and friendly. Ate dinner there which is something I never do..eat in a hotel I am staying at. It was delicious and inexpensive. $5 glasses of wine...need I say more? I would go there just to eat. Stayed weekend of 5/17-19..rained like cats and dogs..so spent a lot of time inside the hotel. Nice relaxing weekend. Would stay there again....in a heartbeat...no I don't know these people and will probably never go back (I was there on horse business) but if I do this is where I will Stay! Paul & Patty

Room Tip: We had a corner room on the second floor and it was nice

This property has a feel of a B and B instead of a hotel. The service starting with the owners and all the staff was excellent. The food at the restaurant was very good and the eating experience was enhanced with local musicians performing for 3 hours on Friday and Saturday. The hotel is beautifully decorated with different artist works displayed. We loved the outdoor space also and found it very comfortable and relaxing. We definitely would will return and recommend this charming hotel to our friends.

Our friends from Black Mountain suggested this place after a night downtown Asheville. The rooms were clean and peaceful with nicely finished decor. The lounge and restaurant were lovely. A real treat for something that is local, historical, and very comfortable. I hope to visit again soon! A perfect nights sleep!

This hotel has been beautifully renovated. We were upgraded to a king room which was very roomy, light and airy, with wood floors and lots of windows. The bathroom had a retro feel with its black and white tile, but conveniently updated to 2013 standards. The bed was comfortable and the linens were well above average. There were subtle reminders which remained of bygone days, such as the glass door knobs, but nothing about this place is overwhelmingly antique. The lobby was tastefully decorated with art work and some pieces by mountain craftsmen, and was comfortable without creating a "lodge-like" atmosphere. The entire hotel had an open, spacious feeling and was exceptionally clean. The lounge / bar opened onto a lovely courtyard at the back of the hotel, and there was also a large porch on the front. The location is a short and easy walk to downtown restaurants and shops. We were only in Black Mountain for an overnight stay, but look forward to returning to the Monte Vista in the future.
