Bears Den cottage is located on a dead end mountain road backing up to the Pisgah Natl Forest, just N. of Asheville. It is just minutes from Navitat, WNC's only zipline!! The home is decorated to match the mountains, easy going and peaceful. Sit by the creek on the property or listen to the roar of the river below. There is hiking at Douglas Falls down the road. The lawn is beautifully landscaped with different varieties of flowers all season long. When in season, pick fresh blackberries and raspberries in the front yard. Enjoy a book or glass of wine on the wrap around porch or soak in the 6 person hot tub that sits up on a deck. The property is very secluded and quiet, yet close to many fun things to do...including whitewater rafting, gem mining, shopping, restaurants and the Biltmore Estate. It is the perfect vacation spot, we love it and know you will too. Behaved Pets welcome.
Our Mission: It is our goal to provide you with everything that you will need to make Bear's Den your home away from home. If you have special requests prior to arrival, we will do our best to accommodate your needs. All you will need is your toiletries and food.
Our Story: We operate Bears Den Cottage ourselves. We both have a background in hospitality including working at a 4 star AAA rated bed and breakfast in Colorado. We fell in love with Bears Den the first time we saw it. We have an excellent team of care takers that make sure it is just how we would have it.
Bears Den has a magical feel to it...you can almost see the fairies dancing in the flower gardens. :) We sit on the porch for hours watching the birds, butterflies and humming birds and listening to the river below. The house is open and airy with a big picture window looking out into the forest. The cottage is decorated appropriately with bears, flowers and inspirational signs to make your trip the mountains relaxing and enjoyable. There is a good chance of seeing wild life at this property. We guarantee you will have an excellent time.

We loved Bears Den! Two couples enjoying some relaxation for a long weekend. Convenient to Asheville for some dining/exploring, and really enjoyed the hot tub after hiking. The home is clean, updated, beds are comfortable, plenty of towels, BEAUTIFUL property, and the kitchen had all we needed for the weekend. We would love to come back in the future!
The pictures don’t do it justice! This place is a charming relaxing haven :) definitely coming back!
Relaxing and charming!
Very relaxing and peaceful.
Quiet and serene environment
The cabin itself was cozy and the property is private and beautiful. This was a working weekend for me as I was coordinating a seminar in Asheville.......the internet was out the entire time we were there so this was a major inconvenience. Telephone - land AND cell were also inaccessible.......had to drive into town to get my work done........and the kitchen did not have the basics that we have found at other cabins......like salt and pepper or cooking oil.......it was a rather primitive weekend......
Super cute and cozy
The cabin is even cuter than the pictures. We stayed Thanksgiving weekend but I'll bet it's even better in the summer when everything is leafy. It was quiet but no too far from things to do and places to shop or eat out.
The beds were very comfortable! Lots of towels for the hot tub and such. The high chair and pack & play were convenient for our infant traveler. The kitchen was adequately stocked with cookware and tableware so eating in was simple and economical.
It is located on a quiet country lane which is perfect for an evening walk to enjoy the woods and the river. We hope to go again!
Great little cabin
