Description from manager

Located within the heart of Montreat, you’ll find this newly-updated mountain gem nestled among the abundant rhododendrons and trees, and a nearby creek. In the morning, wander out onto the sunny, breezy deck to enjoy your morning coffee and beautiful woodland views before embarking on a hike to nearby Lookout Mountain or simply listen to the harmonious sound of the nearby creek. Return in the afternoon and spend some time reading or journaling on the cozy screened-in porch while you listen to the sound of the nearby creek, or continue the outdoor fun by paddle boating on nearby Lake Susan alongside the ducks. Stick around to hammock by the lake and watch the sunset over the mountains. Once evening falls, return home to craft a delicious meal using the spacious eat-in kitchen and gas grill before sitting down to enjoy it together in the dining room. After dinner, gather around the stacked stone fireplace in the living room to enjoy great conversation, play games, and stream your favorite movies (complete with popcorn).

Top of the World is a 5 minute drive from Lake Susan, Robert Lake Playground, and Conference Center activities and a stone’s throw from the 30-mile trail system that runs through Montreat. It’s also less than 10 minutes from the charming “Little Town that Rocks,” Black Mountain. Known as the “Front Porch of Western North Carolina,” you’ll spot the iconic red rocking chairs that Greybeard Rentals has incorporated into its logo throughout this treasured small town that stand as your reminder to slow down, pull up a chair, and relax. Top of the World is also just 25 minutes from downtown Asheville where you can explore art galleries, sample beer at local craft breweries, dine at award-winning restaurants, and shop for souvenirs to remind you of your special time in the mountains.

Promising a retreat that’s chock full of fun, fellowship, and stunning treetop views, this private mountain oasis is guaranteed to leave you feeling refreshed and on “Top of the World!”
