The Arbor House is a wonderful B&B in a beautiful setting. The view from our room was absolutely gorgeous; the inn sits on the shore of Lake Tomahawk and has a wonderful view of the mountains. Carolyn and Dave, the owners, are charming, hospitable people that went out of their way to see that we were comfortable. They went the extra mile from cooking a nice breakfast, to providing us with a selection of dinner menus, to even stocking the refrigerator with chilled water, juices, and sodas. And my husband was pretty fond of the homemade cookies that they set out in the afternoons. The grounds are lovely as well, and filled with blooming flowers, encouraged by Carolyn's green thumb. Our room was cute and comfortable, and had a nice sitting area and a jacuzzi tub. We tried to get the Lookout Room with its private balcony, but it was already booked - guess that means we will just have to make a return trip someday! Black Mountain is a great little town full of shops, nice restaurants, and art galleries. We completed our trip with a visit to the Biltmore Estate, which is not to be missed, and only about 15 miles away. Honestly, this is one of the best B&BS we've seen and perfect for anyone looking for a relaxing, romantic getaway.
