We've rented two different houses in Black Mountain, NC (near Asheville) for vacations. One of them is one of my favorites of all the vacation houses we've rented. The view is beautiful, the house is nice, it's not too far out, and it's filled with books.
This is my favorite room. It's wonderful to sit here, read, and look at the view. The're's a lovely cross-breeze when you open the windows.
