Southern Proper Hospitality (SPH) has acquired The Monte Vista Hotel in Black Mountain, North Carolina, which TripAdvisor names the “Prettiest Small Town Vacation in America.” SPH joins forces with local partners and Black Mountain resident/managing partner Mike Boles to turn the historic property into MV Boutique Hotel and transform the hotel’s dining room into a second location of Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails (opened May 16). Derek Dollar, executive chef and Milton’s brand ambassador, plans to carry Milton’s “seed-to-fork” dining to MV Boutique Hotel with an on-site garden and outdoor seating. In proximity to Asheville, The Monte Vista Hotel’s history and the locals’ fondness for the hotel attracted SPH and its Black Mountain business partners. The hotel structure, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, celebrates its centennial anniversary in 2019. Future improvements will maintain the property’s integrity while adding new concepts including a private speakeasy, Boxcar. MV Boutique Hotel is located at 308 W. State Street in Black Mountain, North Carolina. For more information, call 828-669-8870 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
