Welcome to the Bald Mountain House

Mars Hill, North Carolina

The Bald Mountain House, the highest elevation B&B in North Carolina, is located inside the Wolf Laurel Resort on the Tennessee border, at the foot of Big Bald Mountain.

We offer 3-room suites, over 100 feet of covered verandas with long mountain views, including Mt. Mitchell, the highest summit in the eastern United States. At an elevation of 4,500′, you can expect cool air in the summer and beautiful leaf scenery in autumn.

Rediscover Nature

There is much to discover in the uncrowded natural beauty of Western North Carolina. Relax in our porch rocking chairs while gazing out at the panoramic views of the Pisgah National Forest and the Black Mountains, the tallest peaks in the Appalachians.

Hike the Appalachian Trail with direct access through the private gate at Big Bald Mountain. The diverse city of Asheville is close by, with shopping, wineries, and year round art and music festivals. We invite you to explore our Highlands.
