Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Cabin #1, known as “Bear Ridge View”, is located on 64 privately-owned acres atop Mine Mountain, which is approximately five minutes from the entrance to Pisgah Forest. The cabin was recently renovated and contains two bedrooms (1 King & 1 Queen), 2 baths, and a modern kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. It also features generous outside decks with an outdoor eating area, wireless internet, Direct TV, a DVD player and library, a washer and dryer, and a gas grill. Guests can enjoy the solitude of the area while rocking on the newly constructed covered back porch. This porch, which overlooks Pisgah Forest, features ample seating for large groups, as well as a ceiling fan and variable lighting to guarantee year-round comfort. Bear Ridge View, with its knotty-pine paneling and charming décor featuring a mix of unique antiques and newer pieces, is an ideal cabin for couples or small families.

The efficiency cabin, known as the “Moonshine Shack”, is located adjacent to this cabin and features one large main room, including a kitchenette and sleeping area, as well as one bath and a covered porch. This cabin got its name due to the fact that it was the site of a moonshine operation run by the prior owner. The Moonshine Shack can be rented for an additional fee of $45/nt plus a $20 cleaning fee to provide additional sleeping quarters for the occupants of Bear Ridge.

Why Lisa Sykes chose Smoky Mountains

We chose to purchase rental property in the Brevard area due to its proximity to the beautiful scenery, wildlife, outdoor activities (i.e., hiking, fly-fishing, rock climbing, and bike riding, etc.) available in the hundreds of acres of state and national forest in the Blue Ridge Mountains. In addition, Brevard is a charming Appalachian town that offers a thriving music and arts community, as well as fantastic shopping and dining.

What makes this cabin unique

While a mere 5 minute drive to wonderful downtown Brevard area, visitors to this cabin will enjoy a private, secluded haven complete with astonishing views, a beautiful setting atop Mine Mountain, and the potential to see a large variety of the wildlife indigenous to this region (including the unusual white squirrels Brevard is known for).

Our vacation at this property was very enjoyable and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We visit Brevard every summer with several other friends. This year most of us stayed at the 3 cabins on this sprawling, private property. Cabin was close enough to town (within 3 miles), but still felt the quiet and peace of nature on the mountainside. Great break after biking or hiking all day to come home to comforts of warm shower, home cooked meals and comfortable bed. My favorite part was morning coffee on the deck overlooking the beautiful mountains. We plan to return next year. The whiskey cabin was perfect for friends that only stayed a few days but wanted own space. Lisa Sykes was very responsive to questions and requests. Thank you!

Gorgeous quiet retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed the Bear Ridge cabin - we stayed here for two nights as part of an anniversary trip to the mountains. So quiet and secluded yet so close to Brevard and the forests. The house is tastefully and beautifully decorated and the porch was a most favorite spot. The silence and just the sounds of nature were so inspiring and rejuvenating - highly recommend this rental - one of our favorite VRBO spots ever!

Great house as always!

  • 5 of 5

We've been staying in this house for years now and it never disappoints. Close to everything but feels so isolated out there in the woods. Wonderful as always!

Love staying here!

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd visit to Bear Ridge and wish I could say it was our 20th! It is so peaceful and beautiful up on Mine Mountain, and the cabin is perfect. Very comfortable, very welcoming atmosphere equipped with everything you think you might need. Thank you, Lisa and Clay, for sharing your mountaintop experience with us once more!
