"My daughter and I met here for a mother-daughter weekend biking and hiking trip. The cabin was a perfect size and the hot tub was so relaxing after our Virginia Creeper bike ride and the hike at Gentry Creek Falls. Leon, the owner, was quick to respond to my emails and had everything ready for us. He even suggested some great places to eat in Mountain City! My son and his wife want to bike the trail and I will definitely recommend staying at Black Bear Retreat."

"We brought our church youth up to Bluefield WV for a mission trip and we stayed in the cabin one night to just have some quiet time to prepare and reflect on the mission ahead. The cabin was clean and plenty big for the boys and girls to be seperated ( we put the boys in the basement area ). The land was peaceful and beautiful scenery no matter the direction you looked. We had a delight the next morning when a bear came galloping through the field from the right and down to the front then off into the woods line."

"Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay in this cabin. It was so quiet and peaceful. The cabin was exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated. We felt very at home here and plan to return in the fall. The owners went above and beyond to make our stay very enjoyable."

We thought it was a great place for a family reunion. Gramma Millie
""Playa Casa" is in a great location! It was so peaceful and serene relaxing either down by the water or on one of the patio decks. We also relaxed on the wonderful sun porch. One day my son and his adult daughter took the canoe up to the bridge and back. They enjoyed it tremendously. My daughter and her husband used both the canoe and the paddle boat. My daughter and my granddaughter also enjoyed large tubes that they had brought with them. We were 9 people and at no time did we feel crowded. The home was well stocked including towels and beach towels. It was our first reunion and everyone wants to do a second one. We had a wonderful vacation and would recommend this property for a stay at Claytor Lake."
