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, granite tables, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, bottled water and wrought iron king or queen beds. Bathrooms feature showers and tubs, vessel sinks and rustic tilework.

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.

Lucked up and got to check in early. Super friendly staff. Awesome restaurant and bar with outside fire pit. Close enough to walk to downtown shops. Clean and great vibe.

The hotel is beautiful and we loved the staff- so accomodating during our stay. We felt like our happiness was a priority for them. We love boutique hotels- felt so warm and welcome.

The restaurant was so nice and the food was delicious. The service here was excellent too. Our only wish- a small TV in the room would be awesome. We like to disconnect, but we still want to see the evening news.

Lorraine went out of her way to accommodate us. Her hospitality was genuine and gracious. The restaurant in the hotel was amazing. Definitely recommend dining there. The only downside was there was very little hot water available during the busy morning hours, so shower early!

Bed was too hard and stairs were very difficult for my handicapped husband. Should have been offered a room on ground level since there is no elevator.

While the rooms are a bit small, being an old -1800s- hotel, there is plenty of seating in the welcoming lobby, bar and dining area. Well worth a trip!
