Black Mountain was recently voted by Trip Advisor as one of the “Prettiest Small Towns in America to Vacation.” Romantic Asheville named Black Mountain one of the coolest small mountain towns near Asheville, “a quaint village that rocks”. Oprah ranks Black Mountain #8 on her list of “Charming American Towns You’ve Never Heard of But Should Visit ASAP”! And Southern Living Named Black Mountain one of the best mountain towns in 2020.

Our State magazine described the town as having “…a lively downtown rich in good food, cultural arts, and friendly faces. A perfect destination for a day trip – but you may find yourself wanting to pull up a rocking chair and stay in this mountain town much longer.”

“Black Mountain – a peaceful, easy place to stay awhile.” These lyrics are from The Ballad of Black Mountain, a lovesong to the community of Black Mountain. Relax for a few minutes and enjoy this video featuring members of Black Mountain’s own Upbeats Ukulele Band. It will make you smile!
