1120 Montreat - Steeped in History

The house was built as a personal residence by Dr. Clyde Ellsworth Cotton. Dr. Cotton, who grew up near the Ohio border in Warren, Pa., came to Black Mountain in 1901. At Meriwether Hospital, Cotton became the hospital’s specialist in tubercular diseases. Beyond his work in the medical field, Dr. Cotton was an important figure in Black Mountain’s early business community. He was one of the owners of the Black Mountain Lumber Company (there was a sawmill on the property for more than 90 years) and was the Vice President of Commonwealth Bank.

After Dr. Cotton and his family moved out, the home went through some tough times. Rumor has it that during the 1980s, the property was run-down and local children thought it was a haunted house due to its dilapidated condition. This all changed around 1998 when Ms. Redmond purchased the house with the intention of operating it as a Inn. Ms. Redmond put in extensive work to help make the house what it is today. She undertook an entire renovation, restoring the house and converting it into an Inn. 

Ms. Redmond sold the house to the Yeatman family in 2004. The Yeatmans continued operating the Inn, and continued to breathe new life into the property with renovations. 

In 2016, the Cappelli family took over the house and look forward to running the Inn for years to come!
