Opened in 1937, the Monte Vista Hotel is housed in a former schoolhouse and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Throughout its lifetime, the property has added a second structure and undergone renovations to offer modern amenities. Located in Black Mountain, the boutique hotel is a five-minute walk from the charming town square’s restaurants, shops and museums. The surrounding area offers year-round outdoor activities including skiing, hiking and winery tours.

The intimate hotel has only 45 guest rooms, each uniquely outfitted with mountain-inspired décor. All accommodations include hardwood floors, Wi-Fi, bottled water and king or queen beds. Bathrooms feature showers and tubs, vessel sinks and rustic tilework. In keeping with the quaint, mountain retreat vibe, rooms do not include televisions. 

Milton’s, the on-site restaurant, sources regional ingredients for its Southern cuisine and is open Wednesday through Saturday for dinner, as well as weekend brunch. Guests can also stop in the bar for a cocktail, local craft beer or glass of wine before exploring the town.

The mattress was saggy. The a/c needed cleaning and maintenance. Room was very small. Bar was cozy but a bit pricey. Hotel had been upgraded but not on our wing. Probably downgraded due to our third party booking.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Monte Vista Hotel! The setting is gorgeous, right in the mountains in the adorable town of Black Mountain. The hotel has been recently redone and the lobby/common areas are trendy but without being in opposition to the historic nature of the hotel. The rooms are much the same as they would have been 100 years ago--but with free wifi--and the continental breakfast was really good, especially the local coffee. It was a lovely place to stay for a couple of nights while we explored the area.

We had an absolutely wonderful experience. This hotel is the perfect middle ground between a bed and breakfast and a cold chain hotel. It was warm and inviting. The staff was wonderful but also gave us our space. We had dinner at the restaurant which was simply amazing. And being so close to shops and restaurants in not only Black Mountain but Asheville as well was perfect. We will definitely be back.

Food in restaurant is great. Nice patio and downstairs common area comfortable
Other Comments
Lack of attention to detail in rooms. A wet bar with no water hookup is considered an upgrade and two leather chairs with peeling leather. Lightbulb out. No extra blanket or thermostat in room. Taft did not remove glasses from prior day use. When I asked what the wet bar was door the replay was “to wash things”. My next question is “wash what things?” Room was on third floor no elevator and the young man did not even offer this old woman assistance with bag. There appeared to be no oversight as to customer service in rooms.
