Give the Gift of Black Mountain!

Black Mountain has been called "America's Prettiest Small Town" by TripAdvisor, and part of our mountain town's charm lies in the many wonderful, family-owned small businesses that dot our little slice of heaven. And this holiday season, why not give the gift of Black Mountain by purchasing gift certificates to one of our lovely little shops, restaurants, or spas? We've rounded up a few great Black Mountain businesses offering gift certificates that will make great gifts for the mountain lovers in your life.

Red Rocker Inn

It's been proven that experiences are better than things, so why not give the gift of a wonderful stay or meal at Red Rocker Inn, ranked the #1 restaurant in Black Mountain via Tripadvisor! Guests note that there are plenty of gluten-free options, "the most delicious pork chop I have ever eaten," and "fabulous desserts."

Fresh Wood Fired Pizza & Pasta

Funky, fresh pizzas not found at just any pizza joint rule the menu at FRESH, a wood-fired pizza joint owned by an artist and chef Mark Tomczak that sells gift cards through Giftly in increments of $25, 50, $75, $100, $200, $250, or $500. "Mark has had a successful career for the last 12 years with his studio and gallery, Muddy Creek Pottery, in Old Fort. Galleries up and down the east coast carry his work. He has been the recipient of two arts council grants, an artist-in-residence, and taught ceramics at the undergraduate, graduate and community college level over the last 18 years. When the economy began to significantly impact his sales, Mark began to consider opening a restaurant where he could showcase his culinary as well as artistic skills."

Lookout Brewing

Western North Carolina is known as a craft beer hub, so why not give the gift of NC beer at our nanobrewery, Lookout Brewing, also through Giftly? Your recipient can enjoy house brews like Topless Amber, 11 Pound Brown, and Mother Pucker Sour Stout.

The Dripolator Coffeehouse

Early this year, Food & Wine reported that "Americans Are Drinking More Coffee Than Ever," so giving the gift of Black Mountain's delicious small batch coffeehouse will go a long way since they offer affordable prices like $3.50 lattes and $2.75 cappuccino.

Black Mountain Bodyworks

The gift of wellness suits almost any tough-to-buy-for person in your life because everyone needs the gift of self-care and stress relief! They offer a therapeutic massage, body treatments, and walk-in chair massages as well as skincare and body waxing and customized gentlemen services as well.
