Since early last century, the Monte Vista Hotel has been a jumping off point for those wanting to explore the Swannanoa Valley and a wonderful place to host family reunions, romantic getaways, weddings and group meetings. Our close proximity to Asheville makes us the best of both worlds -- the perfect location to stay in the ‘country’ and explore the city. Lovingly restored in 2011 by proprietors Barney Fitzpatrick and Sue Conlon, the hotel offers comfortable modern accommodations, dining at Palate and a wide variety of thirst-quenchers in Fitz’s Tap Room.
