We invite you to come and stay at Asheville's only 'COZY BEAR COTTAGE' - A Beary Nice Place

Our 'Cozy Bear Cottage' will provide you with a very comfortable and serene place to stay during your visit to Asheville and the surrounding area. Our cottage is located in East Asheville and it is only a ten-minute drive to downtown Asheville. You will have easy and quick access to I-40, I-240, and I-26 which provides the ability to quickly get to places such as the Biltmore Estate, Black Mountain, Grove Park Inn, as well as music venues, restaurants and shops in downtown Asheville. The cottage is located on a well-maintained private road in a very quiet and safe setting. Access to the Blue Ridge Parkway is 2.5 miles away and from there it’s a short drive to either Mount Pisgah to the south or Mount Mitchell to the north. (check out the Folk Art Center just as you get onto the Blue Ridge Parkway) Drive to Chimney Rock and take in the tremendous views from on top and then go to Lake Lure and enjoy a very nice guided-tour on a pontoon boat. Check out Navitat Canopy Adventures in Barnardsville, NC to experience a unique and fantastic zip lining experience (zip and walk through the treetops in the day or night time).

The cottage has three roomy bedrooms, two full baths, a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable living room with a 37” HDTV, large and wide wrap around deck, premium hot tub with built-in sound system, fire pit, and a newly install six foot wooden fence along the side and rear of property. Please refer to the photos that have been provided to give you more details about the cottage as well.

Our family has found that traveling to Asheville will provide you with an almost overwhelming amount of things to do and see. In addition to the places mentioned above our cottage is just minutes away from first class golfing, art museums, various hiking and biking trails, white water rafting in the French Broad River in the spring and summer months and in the winter months go snow skiing and snowboarding at either Cataloochee Ski Resort in Maggie Valley, NC or Wolf Ridge Ski Resort in Mars Hill, NC. Lake James is close by for your enjoyment as well.

Downtown Asheville is a great place to spend some time and you will experience wonderful dining, music, and shopping. Some of our favorite places to eat are Sunny Point, Early Girl Eatery, Over Easy Café, French Broad Chocolate Lounge, Laughing Seed, Tupelo Honey, Bouchon French Bistro, Vinnie's Italian Restaurant, Heiwa Shokudo Japanese Restaurant, Olive or Twist, and many, many other fine restaurants. Enjoy a fun night out for a wide variety of music playing at the Orange Peel or Civic Center. Usually on Friday nights there will be a drum circle gathering that just happens along with numerous performances on the street corners. Another interesting place is the Sky Bar where you can view the surrounding city and mountains and watch a beautiful sunset from a unique outside venue. In the spring and summer enjoy a baseball game at the historic McCormick Field. There are also numerous seasonal festivals to attend. From the large to small shops in the downtown area all are very unique and and provide an almost endless array of selections. Fun and memorable times can be had by all and your days and nights will seem to pass quickly so please plan your mountain adventure carefully so you can take advantage of all that Asheville and the surrounding area have to offer.

We sincerely hope that you will come and enjoy a trip to Asheville and make our 'Cozy Bear Cottage' a relaxing and comfortable part of it all. Just send us an email inquiry or give us a call at 352-538-5645 and we will be glad to assist you.

About Tony Anderson

We are originally from North Carolina and for the past seventeen years have enjoyed living and raising our children in North Central Florida. Traveling to the North Carolina mountains and especially the Asheville area has always been an enjoyable and adventuresome experience. The beauty, serenity, and peacefulness of the area is the alluring factor. There just seems to always be something new and interesting to see and experience because of the seasonal changes in the climate. Chefs from all over the world have opened resturants in Asheville and have produced an extraordinary variety of excellent dining options for us to enjoy as well. We have two dogs (Husky and American Eskimo) that enjoy our trips to the mountains as well to hike and enjoy the wonderful mountain weather. We like calling Carolina home and so might you.

Asheville, NC has been called the 'Paris of the South' and is an interesting place to visit to experience a wide variety of cusines, music, shopping, hiking, biking and just to enjoy the mountain life.

Another fun trip to Cozy Bear Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at your cottage. It's so comfortable, and our dogs love the fenced in yard. It was wonderful to escape the oppressive Florida heat, if only for a few days.

I would say that the only down side, and it is minor, is that the floors were very dirty. It seemed as though they had not been scrubbed in a long time. Other than that, everything was perfect and we look forward to staying at the cottage again next year.

Fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Cozy Bear Cottage. You can't beat the location. Ten minutes to Asheville and ten minutes to the adorable community of Black Mountain. You'll find everything you need inside this clean and comfortable home. Tony is a gracious and accommodating host. The deck is a wonderful place to enjoy your coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. Although this time our dogs did not accompany us I appreciate the fact that dogs are always welcome here and the yard is securely fenced in for their safety. I'm sure we'll be back!

Overall, we enjoyed staying at the Cozy Bear.

  • 4 of 5

I was drawn to the owner's enthusiasm about bringing our dogs. We appreciated also their willingness to answer questions about area hikes and attractions when we arrived. The updates to the master bath and kitchen are great, with the exception that the oven didn't get hot enough to roast vegetables or bake biscuits. Hopefully, they will replace or fix it. The beds were very comfortable and we found the inside of the house and the hot tub to be clean. It would have been nice to see the deck leaves swept away and the patio table and chairs wiped down when we arrived. Also, some care could be given to the landscaping in front of the house, as it looks nothing like the picture posted on VRBO. Thanks to Tony and Rose for providing an inviting and comfortable cottage for our family vacation.
