Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I work as an attorney in Miami. I am 47 years old. My wife and I have been married 15 years. I am self employed and enjoy considerable scheduling flexibility. We like to get away on long weekends. Because of the kids, school the longer trips have to wait until summer. There is also some time for us on spring break in March or Winter break in December to travel. We enjoy traveling to new places in our small RV. We have three beautiful daughters ages 24,14 and 13. The girls are very friendly and enjoy exploring new surroundings. We enjoy the great outdoors but also enjoy museums and touring new cities. This home is available on short notice.

Why the Owner Chose Black Mountain, NC, USA:
I was looking for a total getaway home that did not compromise privacy for convenience or space for amenities or views for location. Black Bear delivers more than your typical cabin in the woods. I can walk or bike into downtown Black Mountain for groceries or other provisions. I can park my RV out front or my cars in the two car garage. I can walk with the kids to the lake and the community pool. I can start hikes into the surrounding mountains within minutes from my home. I was looking for a place to relax and unwind to enjoy mountain sunsets from my decks and hear the sounds of nature and not the sounds of traffic or neighbors. I wanted to have a modern home with all the modern high tech conveniences. I did not want to settle for a 'Spartan' mountain cabin with limited or unpaved road access, internet access or spotty phone service. I wanted to have plenty of room for guests. I wanted a place to start my day trips into the Blue Ridge without having to worry about paved access, long winding gravel roads or adverse weather conditions. I wanted a home where AC in the Summer is strictly optional but four seasons can be enjoyed. Fall season at Black Bear is stunning and Winter season is mostly mild with some post card perfect snow showers. I wanted a place within a day trip of all the Nature activities Western NC has to offer. Black Bear has delivered for me I know it will for you as well.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You are able to walk or bike to downtown or take your golf clubs cross the street and play golf at the stunning Black Mountain public golf course. A full service gym (Chesire) is a 5 minute drive away. A picnic on the Blue Ridge Parkway one of America's most scenic highways is only a 10 minute drive away. Bring your fishing rod as lake Tomohawk is less than a 15 minute walk from the retreat. Go to Montreat and climb lookout mountain. You can take a casual stroll downtown to eat lunch at many fine restaurants or shop in the antique shops. Go to one of the many local festivals. Rent bikes at Epic Cycle downtown and do a mountain bike tour of Black Mountain start from your front door and take North fork road all the way around to old hwy 70 and Lake Tomohawk. Follow the golf courses back to Black Bear. If you crave more, the City of Asheville considered one of the most livable cities in the US is at your doorstep. ( About 15 minute drive West on I-40or US 70) Enjoy the incredible art and music scene in Downtown Asheville. Eat at the open air restaurants or spend the day at the Biltmore House. The largest private home in America. Tour the second largest art deco district in the US. Other nearby attractions include skiing less than 40 minutes away. White water rafting at the Nantahala River. KOA camping. Chimney Rock Park and Lake Lure is only 20 miles away. Grandfather Mountain and Mount Mitchell tallest mountain east of the Mississippi are less than 1 hour away.
