At 2900 feet above sea level, this secluded mountain lodge sits on 22 acres on Pine Mountain in Independence, Virginia. We don't recommend motorcycles unless you are use to riding on gravel. The driveway is 700ft and can be challenging in some areas. The lodge is only 23 miles from Grayson Highland State Park where you will find hiking and horse trails that lead to beautiful waterfalls. Mount Rogers and Whitetop Mountain join Grayson Highland State Park to the North where you will find hiking, trout fishing, hunting and spectacular views. The New River winds its way through Grayson County and offers fishing, kayaking, canoeing, white water rafting and tubing. Black Bear Lodge is all about location. It is 5 miles from local shopping in Independence and the Historic 1908 Courthouse and easy driving distance to Galax for more shopping, restaurants, antiques, bowling and a cinema.If you want to get away from it all and still be close enough to civilization, then Black Bear Lodge is the perfect place for you. Independence and Galax are only minutes away and just a little further is Sparta, NC. For the outdoor enthusiasts, discover caves and spectacular waterfalls. Do you like to bike? Then you will surely enjoy the famous Virginia Creeper and Independence Bike trails that are relatively close. Horseback riding is also available. All you have to do is book a trail ride with a local stable. If you are a golfer, there are a slew of golf courses from which to choose. If you like river sports, then you are in luck. There is plenty of rafting, kayaking, and canoeing. For the fisherman, the New River offers a variety of fish and the ponds are stocked with trout. If you are tired of grilling, check out the historic Davis-Bourne Inn and tavern for dinner. For those who enjoy fine wine, be sure to visit Mt. Vale Vineyards in Galax. If you are here in the summer, be sure to attend the Grayson Wine Festival that is held every August and for those who stay with us in the fall, you can’t miss the Mountain Foliage Festival.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Troy and Robin - Troy and I have lived in Newport News, VA for 19 years. Troy owns his own construction business and I retired from the Navy in 2012 after 29 years of service. We have a son in the Navy and our daughter works for an outdoor recreation company.

Why the Owner Chose Independence, VA, USA:
In Oct 2013, Troy and I traveled to Gatlinburg, TN and fell in love with the mountain views and cabin life and decided to find a cabin of our own. We found a cabin in Grayson County for sale and we contacted a realtor. We immediately felt at home in Independence and fell in love with our vacation home, the mountain it sits on, the area and the people. I think you will love it just as much as we do. We closed on 20 Dec 2013 and have been up there more times than we can count.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
When we first saw this lodge (cabin just doesn't do it justice) we noticed the numerous windows and the beautiful stain. We walked the deck which wraps around all but one side of the lodge and couldn't get enough of the million dollar view. We knew this was the place for us and hadn't even been inside. With the large master bedroom with its own deck, the loft with the amazing views, the high end appliances, wet bar and 22 acres we were hooked. The other two bedrooms are cozy and private. The finished basement isn't like most, as it has several windows and french doors that lead out onto the patio. While sitting in the hot tub you can watch the sunset over the mountains which is spectacular. The wood stove keeps the basement very warm and if you open a window, the wood stove will heat the main floor. The living room has a beautiful stone fireplace, high ceilings and a mountain view. There isn't a room in the lodge that isn't cozy and comfortable. If you come to our home, you won't want to leave.
