Secluded Cabin With Mountain and Lake Lure Views~Longview Realty
average rating of 4.625 based on 8 reviews

Nice cabin, not best management

  • 3 of 5

The cabin is a very nice cabin up in the hills overlooking Lake Lure. Nice fireplace, deck and hot tub complement nicely. Very steep property with no grass area for kids and only mulch for pets and the surrounding woods are steep and off limits. I would not venture here during any time of snow or ice due to the steep terrain. The cabin was clean except for dirty dishes being place in the cupboards so everything had to be washed before we could use and after a trip back down the mountain to get supplies to do dishes and laundry. Also the wifi was horribly slow the first two days and then quit completely for the rest of the week. Could have been fabulous but the details bring the rating down.

Owner's Response: Hi Scott, Thanks for reviewing our property and happy you enjoyed the views and location. We do not advertise a flat area for kids play because as you state this area is completely fenced for pets. Your reservation was for 4 adults so slightly confused as to why this was a detriment to your stay. Steep terrain is all part of the charm of being here in the Blue Ridge Mountains. As to dirty dishes being put back in cupboards, all I can say is we ask all of our guests to wash their dishes and put away. Unfortunately, the guests before your stay did not show that consideration or respect for the home or for future renters. The WI-FI unfortunately was a slow death during your stay. The service provider has replaced the modem.

Great relaxation destination!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a week-long stay at the Bear Cave. We brought our 3 year old black lab with us, too! We spent all week relaxing both inside and outside. The house is very nice, with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, jacuzzi tub, and TV's/wifi in every room! A Wii is available, as well as board games, cards and puzzles for plenty of family fun. We didn't spend much time downstairs where the master bedroom/bathrooms are because of the spiral staircase (our dog was afraid of it), but it is a beautiful space. Outside there is a gas grill, hot tub, ping pong, and corn hole. There is a fenced-in yard attached to the deck so our dog loved spending time out there with us. No direct lake access, but the public beach is a short drive away, and the views of the lake/mountains are breathtaking from the house. While visiting, we hiked up Chimney Rock (15 mins away) and visited Asheville (an hour away). We also tried some local restaurants, and everyone was very friendly and inviting. If you're looking for a family-friendly relaxing destination, this is the one for you! Everything you need is there (towels/linens), just bring clothes and groceries and you don't have to leave if you don't want to. Very secluded and a calm area to unwind. Highly reccommend! :)

Fantastic Bear Cave!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fantastic family vacation! (2 adults, 3 kids and a dog!) The Bear Cave was everything we had hoped for and more. The deck was our favorite gathering area. We had as many meals as possible out there. Being from Florida, we never tired of the mountain views. Although we were there in the summer, and foliage was stellar, I would imagine in the fall this area is breath-taking. There are many fun activities in close proximity of the Bear Cave - Chimney Rock, white-water rafting, zip-lining, and boat rentals - not to mention the great hiking trails that are abundant all over. We also brought our Golden Retriever, and this spot was perfect for a dog. He had a blast, too! The pictures on this website are 100% accurate, and it was clean and ready for us upon arrival. The kitchen was top notch, and the gas grill was great. We would highly recommend the Bear Cave!

Amazing Mountain and Lake Views

  • 5 of 5

The best family vacation ever!!! The property was exactly as shown in the pictures. Clean and beautiful. The owner provided everything needed for a wonderful stay. The views from the deck was awesome. We relaxed, grilled on a Nice gas grill and enjoyed the hot tub. The pave driveway and the fence yard was a plus! We played ping pong , took walks up the drive, watched TV ( HD) but mostly sat on the deck and enjoyed the view of the lake and mountains. The house was close to everything. Penny was so nice when booking and checking in. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

A Great Mountain Getaway with an Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family vacation in your beautiful home. The house was beautiful, had everything we needed, and the views were spectacular! The hot tub was a big hit with the group. Your location was perfect for our daily outings for hikes, ziplining, touring on the lake, exploring the cute town of Chimney Rock, and a great day visit to Asheville. Thank you for providing such a wonderful rental home in the mountains and we look forward to visiting again!

Amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

The view from the deck at Sunrise and Sunset is unbelievable! We saw wild turkey and deer. There is a river that's fed from the dam just below the property, a short hike. It's like something out of a movie. The house is beautiful and clean with a fully stocked kitchen, a wood fireplace upstairs and gas fireplace downstairs, huge soaker tub on the lower level and a great library of books, movies and Wii games. The fenced in yard was wonderful for the dog and the property is beautifully manicured. We can't wait to come back!
