Absolutely awesome

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was absolutely wonderful! Location is the best! Very close to restaurants, shopping and activities! Shopping on King Street is a must do! The cabin is extremely comfortable and well equipped. Plenty of room or everyone in our group. Owners were super accessible and answered any questions we had. The fireplace was enjoyed every night as well as the fire pit. We called locally and had fire wood delivered to our doorstep. All activities are close by; skiing, tubing, hiking to Linville Falls and Grandfather Mountain within 15 - 20 minutes travel. Bella's Italian restaurant near Sugar Mountain has great pizza! And there is a nice kids park in Banner Elk that you can't miss if you have kids. As far as driving up to the cabin, it was not a problem for any in our group. It snowed one and we all navigated the short drive up to the mountain easily. Can't say enough good things about our experience at the Cozy Bear cabin!!!

A home away from the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Cozy Bear Cabin for a weekend along with another family. We both have freshman at App State and this was a great place to spend a family weekend. Although it was only about a 10 minute drive to campus, the location of the cabin made us feel like we were really away from it all. The cabin was very well appointed, with all the comforts of home, and there was plenty of space for all of us. The cleanliness, location, amenities and ease of arranging for the rental helped make this a wonderful weekend. We highly recommend Cozy Bear!

Wonderful home in a location convenient to Boone and hiking trails and fishing spots.

  • 5 of 5

The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. Living and dining area are open for entertaining, dining and shared tv watching.We didn't use the game room since we were busy outdoors and at the football game, but it's a great space. We enjoyed our morning coffee and afternoon wine, rocking on the front porch.The owners were very helpful, great to work with. We would definitely rent the Cozy Bear again!

Lovely Mountain Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice week in this lovely home in a private and quiet location, yet close to town, stores and activities. We didn't spend much time indoors, but when we were there, the furnishings and beds were comfortable (never used the hot tub). As photographers, we were out before sunrise and back after sunset so we greatly appreciated the peaceful, relaxing setting for sleep, but we didn't like the ants in the kitchen. (They were everywhere when trying to prepare a meal.) A better cleaning service, or perhaps a monthly pest control contract to take care of these summer intruders (ants), would put this house at the top of the list to rent again. The rental process was smooth and easy; directions were clear; and we were able to capture great images of Craggy Gardens, Roan Mountain flame azaleas and rhododendrons, Bass Lake, Price Lake, wild ponies at Grayson Highlands and other landscapes. The lattes and milkshakes at DT's in Spruce Pine are the best; the ice cream and chocolate at Kilwin's in Blowing Rock can't be beat. Location was perfect - we were right in the middle of everywhere we needed to go.
