Enjoy fresh mountain air and peaceful atmosphere at Bear Tree Cabin! Cute as a button, it's nestled on the margin of a forest and gets its nickname from an unusual natural formation on a tree in the yard that looks like a bear is hugging it.
Our zip code is Sugar Grove, but the cabin is just 3 miles from the historic Mast General Store in Valle Crucis and is situated in a rural farming neighborhood just off of the Watauga River Road. Fishing, canoeing or swimming in the Watauga River is 2 miles away. Bring your mountain bike and enjoy the gentle grade of the Watauga River Road ... or for a little more adventure, let our resident mountain bike expert recommend a nearby trail that fits your abilities ...
No air conditioning needed at our shady spot in the cool mountains of NC. Cabin has ceiling fans in each bedroom and in both living areas to help with those occasional hot days in summer.
Shopping at the historic Mast General Store is only 3 miles away. Restaurants of all types are in nearby Banner Elk, Boone and Blowing Rock as well as a few in the village of Valle Crucis itself. Hiking trails are available onsite or within a short drive. Zip-line at Hawksnest is 25 minutes away.
Not suitable for pets.
And during the winter months ... Three ski resorts are within a 25 to 40 min. drive. Cross country skiing onsite is available if snow conditions are right. Snow tubing is an option for the non-skier at some ski resorts nearby. At the end of the day, come 'home' to a relaxing hot tub. Four-wheel or All-wheel drive is needed for the driveway if it snows.
