Heaven in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

Loved our summer vacation at the Black Bear Den. Spectacular views of Lake Glenville and the surrounding mountains. We rented a boat and went out on the lake from the community dock. Had a big family meal on the expansive deck. Plus we enjoyed dessert and drinks every night at the outside fireplace/treehouse. Bedrooms are comfortable, and the kitchen is great for cooking. Very comfortable and relaxing. We are looking forward to another trip to the Lake Glenville area and Western NC mountains.

My wife and I spent 5 wonderful days at this lovely home at the end of October. Very private location in a secure gated community. The views of lake Glenville are incredible and the lake is very accessible as are the tennis courts.

The home is professionally decorated and all accessories are first class. We have stayed at several other lake Glenville homes but this was definitely among the nicest. Enjoyed our stay and certainly look forward to our return.

Highly recommended!

What a great place to enjoy the colors of Fall. Black Bare Den is a great place for the family getaway. Everything was First Class indoors and out with beautiful views of the lake. Just a GREAT PLACE to enjoy like no other. We will be dreaming of our stay for some time to come, as we plan to stay again around the same time of year.

Private and Secluded!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely the most perfect mountain home getaway . . . what a beautiful drive to Black Bear Den and nothing from that point on disappoints. Located in a beautiful community of homes --- LOVE LOVE LOVE the seclusion and privacy of Black Bear Den --- total seclusion once you turn onto the driveway -- we felt like we were in a treehouse! The home is beautifully decorated, wonderfully comfortable (both inside and out) with the most amazing views of the mountains and Lake Glenville, actually the most amazing views in all directions!! The layout of the home is fantastic, with very easy access from the driveway to the front entrance for unloading, etc. and 3 bedrooms/baths, each being separate and private from the other - AWESOME!! LOVED the master with the large wall of window views and access to the deck. The deck was so enjoyable, with so much usable (covered) outdoor space, the dining area while grilling and the outdoor fireplace, taking in the beautiful views by day and the peacefulness by the fire at night. The color of the fall leaves simply took our breath away as each day we could see the colors changing more and more. We are ready to return NOW !!!!!

Just Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to comment how much we enjoyed our stay at your place. Everything was First Class from the Decor to the amazing views. We spent much of our time on the outdoor covered living area in front of the fireplace having our coffee in the morning and wine in the afternoon. We absolutely loved all of the Bird Feeders and Flowers. The walk to the lake was easy and we enjoyed taking the kayaks out during the day. Thanks again we will definately be back. Ruth & Frank

One of the most beautiful settings

  • 5 of 5

Black Bear Den was one of the nicest places our family has ever stayed on a vacation. The view is absolutely stunning. The home is so inviting and warm and made for the perfect, relaxing vacation for our family of four. We really enjoyed the outdoor living area with the fireplace on several nights and took advantage of the use of the two kayaks. Another added bonus was the wood checker board table in the family room. Who knew checkers could be so entertaining, but we had a blast with many family tournaments. The weather on Lake Glenville is amazing. No humidity, cool temperatures gave us the perfect break from typical July heat in Maryland. The highlight was renting a boat and exploring the lake and tubing. Laurie was wonderful to work with throughout the entire renting process. This is the place to stay if you are heading for the area!
