Description

Upon entering this polished retreat, you'll immediately be greeted by the bright and open layout. The interior color palette seamlessly ties earthy browns, fresh whites, and cozy greys together, along with pops of vibrant yellow, to create a bright and inviting atmosphere that will instantly put you at ease and in a vacation state of mind. Outside, you'll find a covered open-air deck that provides the perfect space to enjoy breakfast or dinner al fresco and take in mountain or woodland views depending on the season. In the morning, enjoy your coffee on the back deck while you feel the fresh breeze and listen to the sound of birds and wind rustling through the trees.

After coffee, take the time to curl up on the couch with a good book, or take a late morning bath in the soaking tub while sipping a fresh mimosa. When you're ready, it is just a 20-minute stroll along the paved Flat Creek Greenway or a 3-minute drive into "The Little Town that Rocks," Black Mountain. Known as the "Front Porch of Western North Carolina," you'll spot the iconic red rocking chairs throughout this treasured small town that stand as your reminder to slow down, pull up a chair, and relax. Filled with novelty shops, art galleries, and boutiques, you can easily spend the entire day shopping for local goodies to help you remember your time in the mountains.

As your morning coffee begins to wear off, stop into the Dripolator Coffeehouse for house-roasted coffee and locally-made pastries. Just next door you'll find the Swannanoa Valley Museum and the Black Mountain Center for the arts. SVM explores the general history of the Swannanoa Valley, and BMCA offers public exhibits, concerts, theatre, and a myriad of classes for all ages. Their upper floor gallery offers vibrant and diverse exhibits from regional artists and those who have some connection to the area and are free to the public throughout the week. After exploring regional history and art, walk a few doors down to enjoy delicious pub fare at The Trailhead, or pop into any of the many locally-owned restaurants and shops along Cherry Street in downtown Black Mountain.

For avid hikers, Montreat is a short 15-minute walk or a 2-minute drive away from Wendell's Ridge. Lookout Mountain is a great trail that's just under a mile long and offers stunning panoramic mountain views. As a reward for your hike, grab a cold one at Black Mountain Brewing or Lookout Brewing before heading over to Lake Tomahawk Park, where you can play a round of tennis, or take it easy on a bench to enjoy the view of the Seven Sisters Mountain range. In the evening, sit down to dinner at local favorite, Black Mountain Bistro, or head home to craft a delicious meal in the gourmet kitchen complete with stainless appliances and sparkling quartz countertops. After dinner, head downstairs to stream a movie or enjoy some friendly competition by playing board games together. Before turning in for the night, wander out onto the deck to stargaze, or gather around the newly-added outdoor fire pit with a glass of wine to end the perfect day.

Nestled amid the Blue Ridge Mountains, Wendell's Ridge is a tribute to both the renowned writer, environmental activist, and farmer, Wendell Berry, and the family dog who shares the same name. This certified silver "Green Built" home welcomes the entire family (including pets) to enjoy the majesty & calm of nature from a contemporary home base that offers unparalleled convenience!

"Family had an amazing time at this rental. Spacious house. Accommodated 8 people comfortably and some. Kids enjoyed the board games and fidgets. All items needed (bath towels, hand towels, blankets-the softest )and complimentary toiletries made our days super comfortable. The steep driveway was a little worrisome due to low temps/ice but house itself was everything we were looking for and more."

"Wendell’s Ridge is like a perfect treehouse. The house was extremely clean and well stocked with cooking supplies to use. Thank you for sharing your home and allowing our happy furry family stay too. We also enjoyed seeing “BooBoo” the bear walk by. One concern was the camera on the back of the house seems to stare into the primary shower window. You might want to point it a different direction or place a covering over the window."

"We had a delightful stay at Wendell’s Ridge. The home is immaculate and well prepared for visitors. We have made plans to return in 2024. Be prepared for cool breezes, even in July, deer and bear sightings in the distance, and lovely sunsets from the upper deck and family room. Grateful for such a comfortable and spacious home to rent."

"Our group of five Senior Adult ladies absolutely loved Wendell's Ridge. The house was beautiful inside and out and stocked with everything we needed. The most enjoyable part for us was the covered deck area. Being surrounded by woods made this house very private. The only thing we would suggest is that there would be a larger coffee pot, maybe a 10-12 cup size. We would definitely book 'Wendell's Ridge' again for our ladies week out."
