I've stayed at the High Rock cabins on multiple occasions, however, this was the best trip yet. My wife and girls arrived in Black Mountain two days after i did, just in time for a major snowstorm! My wife didn't have four-wheel drive, but the owners were kind enough to go into town with me to provide a ride up the mountain. The owners insisted that we use their sleds and they even provided extra amenities so we didn't have to travel back into town.
As always, the cabins were in great shape, with everything we needed - full propane tanks for the grills, extra wood for the fireplace, and utensils for cooking, not to mention the Ms. Pac-Man machine!
Bottom line - the owners of the High Rock cabins care about their guests. They go above and beyond to do whatever they can to make guest visits as fun and comfortable as possible. My family is already looking forward to the next trip to Black Mountain!
This was our 2nd time in Black Mountain and with High Rock Rentals. The 1st time, we stayed in Hideaway. This time we stayed at the Highrock Haven cabin. The cabin was a perfect size for our two families to enjoy (total of 9 people for the majority of the stay plus a few others for a couple of nights). The town is very quaint and it's so close to Asheville, Lake Lure and Hendersonville with many outdoor things to do. It snowed during our stay (on New Year's Eve) so the kids really enjoyed playing in the snow and sledding/tubing right on the property (we also went tubing one day to an actual tubing hill - so fun!). I would definitely plan to stay again. Thank you High Rock Rentals and Mike for a great stay. We would love to come back again.
This property is not only huge and perfectly kept, but has absolutely everything you need as a family to to make it a home away from home. All cooking stuff, big fridge, plenty of rooms, and the kids loved the video game and pool table downstairs-they left us alone for hours on end (they are 14-16 yrs old). The adults got quiet time on the main floor and outside balcony to talk and have coffee. Everyone got to enjoy the hot tub, and the sunsets were oh so lovely. Also- the owners were immediately available when we needed them. The front grass was a great little place for our little pooches. Both Black Mountain and Asheville are very close to go out for excursions, and we also did a white water rafting trip which was great and relaxing for the whole family. This house is at the tippy top of the mountain, and the entire family and dogs walked all the trails. If you love the mountains, you will love this. Would love to come back again.
This was our second stay with Mike and Beverly Roseman. As with our first visit, they were very accommodating and everything was perfect. We wanted to get away for a relaxing, peaceful week of leaf viewing. Highrock Haven fit the bill perfectly. It was quiet, peaceful and the views are amazing. The home is well equipped and clean. It is so inviting, you feel it is home away from home. The properties of High Rock are pet friendly. Our dog had a great time laying on the deck and exploring the surrounding property. Highrock Haven has a nice size yard for kids or pets to play. We spent most of our time on the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the fall foliage was spectacular. We went to Mt. Mitchell and also Mt. Pisgah. We took a lot of gorgeous pictures. We also went to the Folk Art Center, and as always I bought too many local crafts. I highly recommend Black Mountain and Highrock Haven to anyone who wants a fantastic mountain experience. We will definitely be back as soon as possible. Thanks for another great visit!
