MCM Homes About Laurelwood Community
The established community is in Black Mountain, a town in Buncombe County, and is part of the Asheville Metropolitan Statistical Area. The town of Montreat borders Black Mountain to the north, and the unincorporated community of Swannanoa is on the west border. U.S. Route 70 is the main road through the center of town. Interstate 40 passes just to the south of downtown, with access from exits 64 and 65. Via I-40 it is 15 miles to Asheville and 41 miles east to Morganton. The downtown area has many eclectic shops, attracting seasonal tourism which is a main staple of the local economy. There are also many quaint beds and breakfasts. Black Mountain is home of the Swannanoa Valley Museum and History Center where they organize events and hikes to historic locations, monthly. Located near the museum is The Black Mountain Center for the Arts – a community dream-come-true in the beautifully renovated original City Hall. Lake Eden Arts Festival – occurring twice a year since 1995, is based in Black Mountain and has established the reputation as being one of the best festivals in the southeast. The Washington Post recognized it in 2001 as, “The best cultural Mix and Match Festival in the nation”. The festival includes international and local music, handicrafts, dancing, cuisine, children’s activities, outdoor adventures, drum circles, a zipline, canoeing, etc.

MCM Homes Life Redefined
Asheville is a thriving mountain city featuring a funky and eclectic downtown, 30 plus art galleries in the downtown area alone, a burgeoning culinary scene, a thriving live music scene and of course, the awe-inspiring scenery of the Appalachian Mountains. Asheville has a strong tradition of street performance and outdoor music, including festivals, such as Bele Chere and the Lexington Avenue Arts & Fun Festival. One event is “Shindig on the Green,” which happens Saturday nights during July and August. By tradition, the Shindig starts “along about sundown” and features local bluegrass bands and dance teams on stage, and informal jam sessions under the trees surrounding the County Courthouse. Asheville is the ultimate playground, with a wide diversity of outdoor adventures and the ideal destination for an active and healthy getaway
