Welcome to Black Mountain & Swannanoa Valley


Voted by Trip Advisor as on of  the “Prettiest Small Towns in America”. Spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains surround our beautiful town and valley… If you are seeking a community to relocate your business, begin a new adventure, retire, or even begin a family – Black Mountain and the Swannanoa Valley will be a perfect choice for you…

SafeWise has named Black Mountain “one of the 50 safest towns in North Carolina,” and the Asheville Citizen-Times newspaper voted us “Best Small Town in Western North Carolina…” We are nationally recognized for our arts, handmade crafts, furniture, local food markets, and music… The town and chamber has worked together for many years to also create our “Entrepreneurial Friendly Community” as well…

More than 35 area restaurants offer a wide variety of menus, including everything from hearty soup and sandwiches to BBQ and ribs, mountain trout, and authentic ethnic cuisine… Relax in a historic inn, B&B, remote mountain cabin, or a modern hotel

Our community and valley offers walking, hiking, biking trails, green ways, camping areas, trout fishing, area lakes and waterfalls… Enjoy the crisp, clear running mountain streams and natural flora… “The Valley” is also home to six major Conference Centers, two colleges, and over a several  widely recognized camps
