Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

Nestled on 10 acres of mountain side splendor, Blue Bear Cabin offers peace and tranquility while giving you the feeling of never wanting to leave.

Located only 15 minutes from Black Mountain, 25 minutes from Asheville and just 20 minutes to Lake Lure, you're far enough away from town but close enough to the amenities of fine dining, shopping and local attractions.

Blue Bear Cabin is a wonderful log cabin with features as follows: Main floor: full hall bath; bedroom with a Queen and full bath and second bedroom with double-sized bed. A modern well-equiped kitchen and a cozy great room with a gas log fireplace, flat screen television and a dining area seats up to six. The second floor offers a third bedroom, a half bath and a loft area for reading, surfing the internet on a wireless network or an extra sleeping area with a pull out Queen-sized sofa bed.

The cabin has an expansive wrap around deck with a covered roof in the front and rear offering expansive views and plenty of space to picnic, grill or just kick back and relax. The finished basement, downstairs, includes a checkers table, a sitting/reading area, woodstove and half bath.

More information at bluebearcabin dot net.

Beware, at dusk or dawn when the bluish hue of the Blue Ridge mountains is most intense - you may be privileged to see an ambling black bear pass by which may appear to share the same blue hue as the surrounding mountains.

For the month of December, the cabin is all dressed up for Christmas. Enjoy the beautifully decorated tree and cozy up around the fireplace.

The cabin has easy access, and is clean with a charming bear-themed motif. ~25 minutes to quaint Black Mountain downtown. Kids asked to come back to the same cabin again.

Reviewer Comments:

This cabin has majestic views - the photos don't do it credit! You want to live on the porch forever. The cabin is spotless, and has every amenity you can imagine (except shampoo and sugar). Beds and rooms are very comfortable. Although it is quite out of the way from Asheville with a winding road, and we were questioning the choice as the road went on and on in the hills, once you get there its worth every minute of the drive. The rental company communication is also very good.

Blue Bear cabin was a wonderful experience for us. Four of us from Michigan joined our son from Raleigh for a family gathering. The cabin allowed us both privacy and community space. Beautifully decorated and seemed almost brand new. We loved the seclusion of the setting.

We had a great experience at Blue Bear, just not enough time. The cabin is well maintained and was very clean, and included everything you would need for a great visit. This was our second time staying with Greybeard. We stayed at Jarrett Creek Cottage last Nov. It is also a very nice home located alongside a large peaceful running creek, no view really, but we felt it had a good location to points of interest. Greybeard was very helpful both times and provided more than enough information for our stay, and made it known they were always available. We also appreciated the gift of delicious pumpkin bread from the Black Mtn Bakery upon our arrival,and the great coffee from Dynamite Roasting Co. was a nice surprise too this time. We have purchased their coffee when we visit & also on-line from home. Blue Bear is beautifully decorated and cozy, and was a great place to relax and enjoy nature and the fresh mountain air. The sitting area in the loft and upstairs bedroom are particularly welcoming, although we really loved the whole cabin. It was great taking in the views from the porch off of the living room that wraps around & the screened-in porch downstairs, that both have very comfortable furniture. We also enjoyed our time at Chimney Rock (really mostly the hiking trails/great waterfall), and our hikes at all of the trails at Linville Falls (spectacular), and Roaring Fork Falls(unique falls), along with all of the beautiful views from the Blue Ridge Parkway. We highly recommend and enjoyed eating again at Fresh Wood Fired Pizza and Pasta & the Trailhead Rest. & Pub both in Black Mtn along with shopping in town. Have to also recommend 12 Bones Smokehouse in Asheville near where our daughter lives. Had to stop there upon our arrival from PA for their great Barbecue. We feel the owners have really put a lot of thought into this cabin, and it's those special touches that make it a memorable place to stay and want to return to along with also having a beautiful view.

As soon as we arrived we were welcomed by a beautiful view and a beautiful cabin. We were able to bring our dog and she loved it. On the counter was fresh made pumpkin bread my favorite and a suprice for our dog a travel dog bowel. I always wanted one especially since we hike. Each room was decorated beautifully and the gas fireplace kept us warm since it rained every day. Asheville is 30 min from the cabin. We will definitely come back to this cabin even my housband said it's the best one we stayed in. Thank you for having us in your beautiful home. I had to buy the same beat throw in Asheville like the cabin has :)

We had a wonderful time at the Blue Bear Cabin. It was perfect for our extended weekend trip with our three adult children. We climbed Catawba Falls, played games at the Asheville Pinball Museum and visited The Biltmore. We spent each evening on the back deck watching the sunset, talking, laughing and enjoying the view. The cabin was great for us with the three bedrooms and the pull out sofa in the loft. We would definitely recommend this to others.
