Enjoy a quiet mountain top getaway with gorgeous views of sunsets and surrounding mountains. Unwind fishing in the large stocked pond and finish the day with a campfire. Take in the arts in Bakersville, the Penland School of Arts and Spruce Pine!


The property consists of 10 acres with the apartment sitting on the top of the mountain! It is surrounded by mountains and has breathtaking views at sunrise and sunset. The 1200 square ft. open concept apartment is filled with large windows and provides gorgeous views of the surrounding vistas. There is one private bedroom with a double bed and own private bath.

A large pool table and darts allow for lots of family entertainment. Enjoy a large campfire while watching glorious sunsets on the mountain top or have a small campfire in a more intimate setting at the goldfish pond. Once kids are tucked in, relax with a glass of wine on the large deck and take in the views of the brilliant night stars. Mornings are best spent waking up with coffee on the third level private crows nest watching the morning fog lift off the mountains.

At the base of the mountain there is a beautiful large pond stocked with bass, bluegill, catfish and even some three and a half foot carp! Enjoy fishing or just feeding the fish - they put on quite a show! All the supplies you need for fishing are provided. There are multiple places along the pond to sit as well as a beautiful large gazebo that overlooks the pond. A multi-use court is a great place to play basketball or bad-mitten with the kids. Getting hot? Enjoy a swim in the pond - there is a beach area and dock as well as tubes and kayaks to float in the pond or have a water fight! Halfway up the mountain are three small spring fed ponds that contain hundreds of goldfish - it is a great place to sit in quiet reflection or enjoy watching the kids feed the fish!! Back at the top of the mountain enjoy a friendly game of horse-shoes.

The cabin is wonderful and John is a great host. There are endless things to do, including fishing, horseshoes, darts, pool, skee ball and plenty more. It's a wonderful spot, with gorgeous views. We loved it.

This place is far beyond what my wife and I and probably my dog expected. Leaving felt like leaving family. The pictures on here do not do the place and views justice. The room is much more spacious and nicer than the pictures led us to believe. We had spotty cellular service with Verizon while driving, but we had 3 to 4 bars with 4G while actually at John's place. There was also WiFi offered there with a Chromecast. We also had access to all the channels via DirectTV. There's two full baths and a very comfortable bed. We actually fell asleep on the couches both nights. The pool table is also good quality and is level for anyone worried about that. The balls don't roll randomly and in odd directions. There's also a skeeball table in the same room if you are into that or have kids. My wife and I played a few games of each. The outdoor area is also very nice to just sit back and relax. The crow's nest allowed for a great 360 view of the place. The place was very comfortable, peaceful, nice, and relaxing. We spent a lot of time just lying on the couches and getting excited when deer would come out of the woods. The reviews here are spot on. This place was everything I hoped for and more. John is by far the nicest and best person I have ever met in my life. He actually cut his hand and was at the hospital getting stitches when we arrived. His very friendly neighbor (Neil) greeted us and showed us the place. We also met his wife, one of their songs, and their dog Red. They were just as friendly as loving as John and Rose, too. John arrived with a bandaged hand, pizza and wings (more than willing to share). I can't say enough about the hospitality and personality of John. He is also quite the animal lover. He has one dog named, Rose, who loves chasing deer. We seen deer within 20 minutes of arriving and about 5 to 6 more times throughout our 2 days there. John has a feeding area for the deer viewable from the place you'll stay (even viewable from inside due to all the open windows). We let our dog run around free there. She took so fast to John and Rose and followed them around and inside their house multiple times. The deer rescue I HIGHLY recommend. We got to feed 25 baby deer by hand and just seeing the adult deer eat from a trough was amazing. Angela and Keith are just as great and nice as John. John admires them to death. Angela walked us around and told us all about how they feed the deer, how she walks with a herd of fawns and adult deer for 2 hours every day to get them familiar with the mountain. Unique amazing experience is all that I can keep saying. John...

Fishing, kayaking, swimming, hiking, grilling, bonfire and much more all on the property. Proprietor was a gracious host - took part of our group to deer rescue, gave tour of his wood shop to others, had refreshments set up for arrival. Excellent time was had by all or family- can't wait to return next summer

We had an amazing time at Black Kettle Mountain. John made us feel like family right from the start. He helped us achieve everything we were looking to do and we know we'd like to return again in 2017. The cabin is very spacious & comfortable and the views are beautiful. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice country setting where you can be as lazy or busy as you want. Thank you John!

It's simple - you arrive as strangers and leave family. From the moment you book your stay, John goes out of his way to make your vacation special. We were looking for something 'different' to do this Thanksgiving and Black Kettle Mountain was the perfect retreat! Let's start with the first thing you'll notice - large stocked ponds located at the foot of a beautiful mountain, with a driveway that winds through the trees. From there you'll probably run into a bunch of four-legged greeters, Rose, Charlie, and Red (neighbor) will show you the way as you make your way up the hill. Once you arrive, John will offer you "the nickel tour". The apartment is charming, comfy, and quaint, with LOTS of activities like darts, pool, ski ball, and searching for deer with a flash light at night to keep you entertained! The home is clean, warm, and was equipped well enough to handle Thanksgiving dinner - complete with turkey! John's goal is to be as involved or (not) involved as you wish during your stay. We chose to experience all we could by taking woodworking lessons, going for a late night trip up to an open meadow for stargazing, and visiting his friends (Keith & Angela) that are doing amazing things at the Green Mountain Deer Rescue. The whole trip was AMAZING. I haven't even mentioned the hiking or target shooting (arrow & gun) that John setup for us prior to our arrival when we inquired about finding outdoor ranges. Thank you, John, we will never forget this Thanksgiving or the friendship we created. And of course, Bacardi, Bonsai, Moses, and Chewy appreciate you letting them experience life without leashes!! Until our next trip, best wishes! Leeanna, Elba, and Eddie.

What an amazing value this place is! John and his dogs are the perfect host. Dinner and campfire were waiting for us when we arrived and there were about a dozen deer in the field. You can't beat this place for a relaxing getaway! On-site is stocked pond fishing, wood-working, pottery, walking and a cool cabin deck with upper crows-nest deck above the cabin where you can see for miles and miles. This place is pet friendly and John's dogs are super playful and happy. John is an amazing fellow that makes you feel right at home. Great conversation and super resourceful.
