Description of the Black Mountain vacation home rental
Hello and Welcome to the Chateau de Vue!

Come to the mountains and experience all our wonderful area has to offer! The weather is perfect and everything is coming to life. yay!

The Chateau de Vue has amazing views and will certainly satisfy all your guests' wants and needs! Spend time outside during the day then enjoy a bonfire at night.

Plenty to do here - hiking, bonfires, relaxing, stargazing, shopping...something for everyone!

The Chateau has four distinct bedroom suites each with a private full bath and a unique theme, as well as a 'dungeon' with twin beds for the kids. These are not hotel rooms; they are large, decorated, well appointed rooms that you can escape to when you're ready to relax on your own or settle down for the night. Each of the rooms provides a unique 'experience', be it the Victorian Room with its Juliet Balcony and 1890's Victorian claw-foot tub; the Mountain Room with a laurel branch ceiling and a recessed 'rain tile' shower; or perhaps you will have the Master Suite consisting of 1200 square feet, a truly decadent bathroom and a sitting room with two wicker lounge chairs overlooking the mountains. No matter where you are staying in the Chateau, you have something uniquely yours and memories that you can tell in stories for years to come.

The main gathering spaces of the Chateau are equally ordained with two full service kitchens (the main having all Viking appliances), a 65 inch HD LED TV in great room with Dish Network, a huge recreation room stocked with a full-size pool table, hurricane foosball table, 1000 chip poker set, shuffleboard table, board games, 42' LCD as well as a 58' plasma TV dedicated for video games (bring your own system) or DVDs. Yes, we have WiFi and a Keurig! Like the bedroom suites each main room contains comfortable high-end furniture and decorations for you to relax on or entertain in.

The Chateau rests on a peaceful and quiet mountaintop location with one of the best drives in Western NC as your approach. If you are looking for simple relaxation and a beautiful view, this is the place. You're still close to town and in a relatively centralized location to go in different directions and explore or tour.

The Chateau's Sleeping Layout is as follows: (Sleeps 12 in beds)
- Master Bedroom (1st floor): King TempurPedic, private bath (Sleeps two).
- Mountain Suite: Queen TempurPedic,private bath (Sleeps two).
- Castle Loft: Queen bed, bunk bed (2 singles), private bath (great for a family, sleeps four).
- Victorian Suite: Queen bed, private bath (truly fit for a Queen, sleeps two).
- The 'Dungeon' (Rec Room) converts to a Suite with private bath, two twins (Great for groups of kids/teens since they can play until they fall asleep!)

The Chateau gives you the chance to get away in style to the mountains of North Carolina with over 6000 square feet of living area on 60 acres of private land for less per night than it would cost you to get just two hotel rooms in town! The views are truly phenomenal, not just 'long range', but a full 180 degree panoramic during the day and then at night not only are the stars brilliant, but the back-lit mountains simply wonderful! You can enjoy this from the privacy of your back porch or from your third story tower! This property has everything you and your guests need in true estate quality and finishes. There is plenty of private land to tromp around on and hike (primitive trails) or camp. There is also plenty of parking (which in the mountains can be a very hard thing to come by) and plenty of space to either come together for family fun or split up and pursue your own activities.
There is also plenty of places for everyone to be in the same room- the huge great room with a large semi-circle couch and chairs, the formal dining room with a table that seats 10 comfortably, the 1200 square foot Recreation room, and more.

Only 15 minutes to Black Mountain, Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. 35 minutes to Asheville and the Biltmore Estate.

Are you tired of playing the guessing game as to what your vacation home is actually going to look like or have you heard horror stories about seeing one listing and showing up to something completely different (or worse, experienced it)? Are you tired of renting a property and arriving to find that the rooms are bland, the furniture is cheap, and there aren't even the basic necessities like pots and pans in the house? Lastly, are you tired of inquiring to a Vacation Rental by 'Owner' and getting automated responses from a rental company who says 'that one isn't available' but they offer you out a whole bunch of other 'rental mill' properties?
Well, look no more! We are none of the above, and more importantly we respect you as being the person in charge of giving your friends and family a wonderful experience in the mountains. Like yourself, we're real people and we're proud to offer you our home (exactly as represented!) in the mountains - the Chateau de Vue - along with all of the estate-quality accommodations and finishes that you deserve in a luxury vacation home. Upon booking the Chateau, we put you in touch with our Estate Rep who can further enhance your experience by providing pre-arrival groceries, mid-week housekeeping, in-house Chef, catered meals, you name it, she can make it happen! All services are contracted separately from the Chateau.

Our weekly rates include ALL fees and cleaning! Only additional fee would be extra services you request.

Chateau de Vue

Area Information
If there was an award for "Most Charming Small Mountain Town", Black Mountain would be a strong contender for the top prize. Located just 15 miles east of Asheville, this little community of 11,000 has revitalized its classic historic downtown with an eclectic collection of fine shops, galleries and restaurants, while maintaining a low-key, home-town feeling. Here you'll find the Chocolate Gems shop that ships its artisan sweets around the world. But just down the street you can get a haircut at Around Town Barber Shop, a two chair linoleum floor classic tonsorial parlor where you get the feeling that Andy Griffith might stop in for a quick trim at any moment.

The Chateau de Vue offers a peaceful and quiet mountain location with one of the best drives in Western NC as your approach. If you are looking for relaxation and a beautiful view, this is the place for you.

We are perfectly remote, yet very easily accessible to:
Chimney Rock Park ~ 15 mins. An amazing place, it has miles of high rock hiking trails, waterfalls and wonderful scenery (Last of the Mohicans was filmed here). And the view from the Rock itself -- wow!

Lake Lure ~ 15 mins. Just minutes from Chimney Rock Park. It is a huge meandering lake rimmed with million dollar homes and the available boat tour is loads of fun.

City of Black Mountain: 15 minutes. Shopping, eating, stroll around Lake Tomahawk in Black Mountain city park.

Pisgah Forest, Asheville ~30 minutes

Mount Mitchell State Park ~ 1 hour, 20 minutes

Grandfather Mountain State Park ~ 1 hour, 30 minutes

Take the Blue Ridge Parkway for a spectacular scenic drive and/or more hiking!

Gem Mining - Emerald Village ~ 1 hour away. Double check, but I think they are only open April-November!

Hayrides (and much more) - Historic Orchard at Altapass - 15 minutes from Emerald Village. Closed for the winter, reopens in May!

SNOW TUBING - Moonshine Mountain ~ 30 miles from our doorstop

SKIING - Wolf Ridge Ski resort ~ 40 minutes
Cataloochee Ski area ~ 1 hour, 10 minutes
Sugar Mountain ~ 1 hour, 30 minutes

The Castle

June 27, 2011

Staying at this Black Mountain Castle was quite an experience. The views are simply breath-taking and numerous from all parts of the house and the house itself is phenomenal. Our group of 15 had more than enough room to relax and enjoy a life of luxury. The master bedroom and bath is like something out of a is magnificent! The professional kitchen was also fantastic with a large gas stove and cool kitchen gadgets. All of the bedrooms have something unique about them which suites all guests. The property itself is also vast and a blast to explore...bring your hiking shoes. The owners are extremely accommodating, friendly and on the ball. Our only complaints were of poor water pressure for a short time (which could have been caused by a power outage and was taken care of immediately by the owners) and the sound acoustics in the house. Sound travels from the ground level to other areas of the house fairly easily even with the volume low. This was a bit of a problem for the little ones because they went to bed earlier than the rest of us. We also had to deal with quite a few bugs (flies and ants.) A screens would work great on the downstairs sliders and on other doors and windows. Overall, our experience was wonderful and we will definitely consider re-visiting the "Chateu" in the near future. A already miss it...

Awesome Family Vacation

Our family was overwhelmed at the beauty & splendor of the Black Mountain Chateau de Vue!! It was perfect for our family of 10 to celebrate Christmas! The view was magnificent & the home was very warm & cozy. We loved the family gathering room w/ large kitchen. Great for cooking, eating, watching TV & enjoying each other. The game room made for some awesome family competition, as well. This is definitely one we'll rent again!

The house itself is beautiful. The kitchen stove was not clean though and that was gross. The backyard needs a bit of fixing up, but the property is in a great location. Many nice places to visit and hike in nearby areas with Asheville close enough to go back to the city if you miss it too much. We stayed the week of thanksgiving with a large part of our family. Go out in the morning to explore and then there was plenty to stay busy in the house at night. We had poker & ping pong tournaments, pool games, video playoffs, played dominos til 1 am and watched movies. Great place to relax. No internet or phone service available.

What a fantastic week!!! The Chateau was everything we wanted for a spot to house 16 family members. As a gourmet cook, the kitchen was wonderful. Plenty of room to feed the whole crew. The younger kids loved the dungeon and all the games. The older crew loved the back porch with its fabulous view of the mountains---a glass of wine, cool breeze and great conversation. And the showers in the place--- we took shower tours to find the best one---from the double in the master suite to the rain from the ceiling upstairs. The chateau is decorated in classy style with each bedroom having its destinctive style. Oh, and the driveway up is a piece of cake. WE also loved the surrounding area---Chimney Rock, Looking Glass Falls, Grandfather Mountain and of course Asheville--- what a great farmers' market! And Black Mountain and Montreat were both highlights. And great swimming holes on the way to Chimney Rock. The Chateau was everything advertised. The owners were friendly and helpful. We would definitely consider it again

Date of Stay: August 6, 2010 Review Submitted: August 22, 2010

Our vacation including family ages15 - 80 was well-suited to the Chateau de Vue. We were able to relax in the various rooms, read, play games (we organized a low-key family tournament of foosball/pool/and shuffleboard that lasted the week), make daily outings if desired, exercise and hike, and settle in for evenings of gourmet cooking and sunset-viewing from the porch. The details of 'castle' decor make the house different and special. It is spacious and has the feeling of being 'big' like a castle. A few times late at night, we watched a movies we had brought, but it is too beautiful a home and location to waste time on the television. We visited a local lake for a pontoon boat tour, went fly-fishing with a local guide, ate out at some lovely restaurants on the lake and at nearby towns, shopped and explored local towns, visited Asheville, and more. The mountain road leading to the home is quite curvy, but that encourages you to plan ahead and not expect to run out every ten minutes to do or get something. It makes for an excellent opportunity to just enjoy each other. There are no 'next-door' neighbors, so it is peaceful. There are so many things to see or do in the area, that this great part of the country warrants many repeat visits. We would definitely stay at this home again.

this home is everything the owners said....and more! secluded,spacious,fun and relaxing. We had friends meet up here from all of the Southeast and Midwest,everyone's breath was taken by the drive, the views and the home. We can not WAIT to stay here again with friends and family, for an entire week next time is what we are looking for..not to leave the mountain at all...just enjoy. The owners were super easy and friendly to work with, thanks guys for all your open communication during the lead up to the stay, it made things so much easier. Chateau De Vue is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

This home exceeded our expectations. It's huge with nice furnishings and beautiful finishes. It's on quite a bit of land which gives you privacy and some hiking trails. The owners are very nice as well. We stayed with our two teen-aged kids and they enjoyed the game room so much, we never turned on the TV. In fact, we spent more time in the house than we planned, because we all enjoyed it so much. We would definitely recommend it.

We had a great week at the Chateau! We did a mix of things in the area......Chimney Rock, Lake Lure, Biltmore Estate/Ashville, shopping, golf, etc., but we also really enjoyed relaxing at the house. It is such a beautiful home and view. Everyone in our small group had a great time.

Thanks again for letting us stay at the Chateau. It was everything and more than we expected!

Review Title : 708358 - "Relaxing Getaway"

"My guests and I had a very relaxing and fun weekend at the chateau. The property is secluded and feels very private. The house is very warm, welcoming, and well furnished. There are plenty of games and activities to keep everyone entertained during a stay and all the amenities that you would need for a great vacation getaway in the mountains."

Chateau de Vue is an amazing home! The house is huge, well designed and decorated and feels warm and welcoming! The owners were just as nice and honest to deal with through out. Each morning we had coffee while watching the beautiful sunrises over the eastern mountains and then went on fun hikes up the property. After day trips to surrounding towns and adventures we would come home each evening to cook dinner in a huge kitchen and then gather around the outside fire pit for smores and laughter an the evening sunset over the western mountains. Finally as we ended the evening the kids would play in the well stocked game room and we would sip wine by the indoor fire and watch a DVD or read.
I highly recommend this home.

We celebrated my father's 80th b-day in style in the mountains at the "Castle House". We loved the views, the weather and the layout. Enough room for the whole family and space for us all to have some alone time once in a while, too. Played games indoors and out and had a great birthday party to boot. Also, spent a day at the beach at lake lure, easy drive and great day get away for the little ones and older ones alike. Thanks for the memories! I am trying to get the family to commit to week next year as well.

What a wonderful family vacation we had here! The house is fantastic --- lots of room, beautiful finishes, very comfortable. The views are amazing .... sitting on the porch was my most favorite activity of the day. The sunsets took my breath away, and the absolute quiet of the location restored my soul. It was wonderful to be able to gather with my entire extended family for a week we won't soon forget. Memories that we will cherish forever were made, and this home and this location now have a special place forever in our hearts.

This is the place for you if you want peace, quiet, and comfort! We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of our stay, and the owners are wonderful to deal with. Also worth mentioning, the main views are perfectly positioned for the wild variety of sunsets. Be sure to grab your favorite beverage and watch.

Great home. Awesome view. I travel to this area each year and will stay again! K

We have stayed in many vacation homes and this was by far the best. We enjoyed everything about the Chateau and the surrounding area. The owners, Matt and Jacey are great hosts and have provided EVERYTHING that you could possibly want or need while on vacation. The views are spectacular and the home has a very comfortable quality about it, which made it feel like "ours" while we were there. We are looking forward to coming back soon.

Kari , Charlotte, NC We really loved our stay here! The house is amazing - beautifully decorated & the attention to detail in the architecture/design of the house is amazing. Spacious - we loved each having a bathroom & the game room was never empty! Can't wait until we have an excuse to go back!

Don and Judi , What a wonderful house in a spectacular setting. From coffee on the porch in the morning, to watching sunsets from the turret, we truly enjoyed our time at the Chateau. The owners have provided a wide range of touches that say Welcome and enjoy your stay. All of the rooms are much brighter than the photos show. The owners have even provided walkingsticks ( in the garage) if you want to hike the property. The town of Black Mountain is charming and has some very good resturants. There are many places to explore nearby. We were so busy relaxing that we had to book another stay.
