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.

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.

Aside from Christian who was the concierge the 1st day when we checked in..he was the only staff who was friendly and personable. The bed was the worse mattress we have both ever slept on..the housekeeping barely even cleaned our room on between night 1 and night 2..trash was still left on the floor, cups, plates, etc.were still left untouched in the room also. There was no TV (which I wish we had known in advance), and all in all..just not the best visit and we were happy to be checking out..

Historic inns tend to divide into two camps. They are either designer restorations that cater to an elite clientele (and priced accordingly) or stuffy older properties that feel dark, cluttered and just plain old. The The Monte Vista is different – nicely updated but still casual and relaxed enough for anyone to feel comfortable. The location is great too, only a 5 minute walk to the shops and restaurants in Black Mountain. But make sure to have dinner at the hotel's restaurant because the food is both exceptional and reasonably priced. My tagliatelle bolognese that was better than anything I've had in a "real" Italian restaurant, and my broccolini was served lightly chard (but still crispy) with a wonderful smoky flavor. Wine was also excellent. I appreciated the TravelZoo deal I received and will definitely be returning.

Part of the charm was no TV. Lovely front porch and/or back patio for reading!

We could walk to everything in Black Mountain, NC. It was nice too to have the bar open for nightcaps. Thanks to Monte Vista and Travelzoo for the coupons too!

Our room in the newer section was comfortable and quiet. We enjoyed the front porch and the sitting room/lobby would be great if it had been rainy or cold. Thanks for a great few days.

Very convenient location and the staff was incredible. All staff members were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure that we enjoyed our stay. Quite a contrast to what we experience at most chain hotels these days.

A most enjoyable place to spend a night or two. And Black Mountain itself is a nice town too!

Wonderful restaurant, hotel 100 yrs. old, but quaint and comfortable. Lovely patio area with gas fire to take off the chill. Staff were friendly and helpful. Walkable to downtown shops and restaurants.

We enjoyed sitting in the courtyard area with the fire pit in the evenings. We also really enjoyed the charm and history of the building.

Everything about our stay was wonderful. The hotel has a lot of charm and character, and every staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful. Even though there were some improvements being done during our stay (painting and other maintenance), we were never disturbed in any way. We will certainly be back to stay at the Monte Vista again in the future!
