The Community - Black Mountain, NC
Black Mountain is a quaint village with 40+ shops, 30 restaurants and three breweries, Lookout, Pisgah and Ciderworks. Some of our favorite shopping stops are the Town Hardware & General Store, Black Mountain Iron Works, Take a Hike Outfitters, Dancing Dragonfly, Seven Sisters Gallery, and the sprawling Tyson Furniture Company (covers a whole block). Take a break at Dripolator Coffeehouse. The Black Mountain Center for the Arts is a community arts facility in the beautifully renovated Old City Hall and houses monthly exhibits in the gallery along with programs in music, visual and performing arts. Just a few blocks from downtown in their quaint city park, Lake Tomahawk (401 S. Laurel Circle Drive) with a half-mile loop trail around the lake with views of Graybeard Mountain and the Seven Sisters peaks.

Many folks come to know Black Mountain through the numerous conference centers located within a few miles of the town, including Ridgecrest, Blue Ridge Assembly, The Cove, and Christmount. The small township of Montreat, the home of the Reverend Billy Graham, actually abuts the city limits of Black Mountain and is a unique and charming village in itself, with a small liberal arts college and the Montreat Conference Center. If exploring this area, be sure and check out the beautiful Ben Long fresco in the chapel on the campus grounds.
