2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom with Mountain Views / WiFi
Why Lisa Gurney chose Fairview
We absolutely love the Asheville area - the mountains, endless outdoor activities and 4 distinct seasons allow us to appreciate and fully enjoy nature year-round. When we met as teenagers, we dreamed of one day building our own mountain escape (with a fabulous view, of course). We were involved with every aspect of the building process; from the beginning stages of staking out the property lines and house site in the snow to personally delivering almost every nail, bolt and load of lumber. Our hearts and souls were poured into this cabin while attempting to balance our full-time jobs, lives and every detail of the project...but every minute was worth it, without a doubt.
What makes this Cabin unique
With the cabin facing South, year-round natural light invites guests to gather in the living area and relax on the decks. As is the case in much of Asheville, the roads around our cabin tend to be steeper than what many people are used to. Our driveway is steep and narrow in sections (about 300 yards from the bottom to top). Access is not a problem, however, and we both own small 2wd vehicles that do just fine around Asheville and our cabin. We also have stairs leading from the driveway to the cabin door, which, for those with mobility issues, may pose a problem. The cabin is located within a private community, in which Rules and Regulations apply to residents and visitors. This makes for a truly quiet and relaxing stay in the mountains. Please note that noise, privacy, parking and other rules must be respected throughout the private community.

Lazy Bear Cabin was fantastic! It was everything that we could have hoped for and more. The cabin is beautifully done and well maintained. It's situated in an ideal location that provides a secluded mountain top feel, while still being close to downtown Asheville and all of the nearby hiking spots, etc. We look forward to returning in the future!!
Lazy Bear Success
We had such a great time! The cabin was meticulously cleaned and organized. Views from the cabin were everything we invisioned and all that we hoped for. Thanks so much for everything and for making our get away that much easier and relaxing!
Hiking in the morning, hot tub in the afternoon and Asheville in the evening. Great location for all the Asheville area attractions. Views as advertised...
Incredible vacation spot
Lisa and her property are the best! She was very attentive, provided prompt assistance, and the property was everything it was advertised to be. Additionally, her cleaning lady has the utmost character and honesty. We had left expensive items at the home and upon departure we were immediately notified. I WILL return next year providing this property is available. Thank you LIsa and Rosie for a job incredibly well done. It was a privilege and pleasure to stay at your home. Thank you.
Perfect location, gorgeous views, clean comfortable home.
We spent 5 days at this house in early July. Communication with hosts was easy and clear. Lisa went out of her way to email suggestions of places to go with our 2 and 5.5 year olds. They clearly have a lot of pride in their home and the area. The stairs are definitely there, but we knew that and packed accordingly (no huge rolling suitcases, more duffel bag/back pack style, and we didn’t bring a huge cooler filled with stuff either). The upstairs loft is much more private than I expected based on stays at other homes with a loft, and the upstairs loft has its own thermostat for HVAC. (Anyone that has stayed in tall, lifted homes knows how important that is!). We found the location to be perfect. Close to Asheville, lake lure area, we also went to DuPont stars forest without trouble. Other nice aspects of our stay: Lisa brought a pack n play for our 2 year old, on last minute request. The hot tub was great. Rocking chairs on deck comfortable for views with your coffee and/or wine. Also the kitchen is stocked like it’s tour home - not mismatched oddities. Thanks for everything! We’ll be back!
Great stay in a beautiful area
We loved our stay. The cabin was great. very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Of course, the view was awesome! Felt very private yet we were close to everything.
The Asheville area is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. So much to see and do: cruise the Blue Ridge Parkway, hike the Appalachian trail, mountain bike in Pisgah National Forest, tube or kayak the French Broad or other numerous rivers, climb Chimney Rock (or ride the elevator to the top), swim and paddle Lake Lure, fish, hunt, or bird-watch. The outdoor activities are endless.
Asheville is also well-known for the locals' love of art, antiques, good beer and fine cuisine. With a multitude of art galleries, micro breweries and wide array of restaurants, Biltmore Estate and the Blue Ridge Parkway are only the beginning of a true Asheville experience.
