Black Mountain & Asheville

Trip Advisor’s 2017 Winner of America’s prettiest small town.

Relaxed and lovely, Black Mountain is rich with community events, art festivals and craft exhibits, as well as year-round music, theater, and dance performances. It's also home to our residents, offering them plenty of ways to get involved through civic groups, churches, school mentoring programs and other volunteer activities. Educational opportunities abound. The University of North Carolina-Asheville, Montreat, and Warren Wilson Colleges offer classes and lectures on our campus or just down the road.

Asheville boasts an additional array of sights and experiences that are known the country over. Residents are free to explore numerous breweries and wineries, great antique shops, and quaint cafés. Asheville is also the home to one of the most famous residences in the world: The Biltmore House. Take in the colorful Blue Ridge Parkway or, if you prefer a slower pace, go for a walk along flower-lined pathways at the North Carolina Arboretum. 

As a resident, you could browse art and craft galleries, artist studios, specialty and antique shops, bookstores and furniture stores. Go biking, hiking or just sit awhile. Stroll the walking path at Lake Tomahawk. Feed the ducks, swing on a swing and feel like a kid again. Pass the evening in a charming restaurant or cafe, or tap your foot to the beat in one of Black Mountain's music venues.

With so many possibilities just a quick drive away, make every day a new adventure at Givens Highland Farms.
