Custom luxury log home nestled in a National Park-like setting. Perched on top of a mountain ridge, the home has long range views to enjoy from the spacious decks. Private setting is a short walk to our pristine trout stream. Gated community with few homes, so walking is perfect for watching wildlife. Six miles to the quaint village of Hot Springs and the infamous natural mineral springs for soaking in along Spring Creek and the French Broad River. The Appalachian Trail goes through Hot Springs and the ridgeline of the AT is part of the view from the home. Come and visit the Blue Ridge Mountains at their finest; turkey, bear, bobcat, deer, raccoon, hawks, eagles, and owls share the neighborhood. The area is famous for its hiking and water sports. Relax, enjoy nature, breathe the fresh air, sit by the mtn. stream, hike through the National Forest, fish the stream, raft the French Broad River, and rejuvenate in the mountains.

Hot Springs Area: Appalachian Trail, French Broad River, Blue Ridge Mountains, Natural hot springs for soaking in the out of doors, Big Laurel River trout stream, fishing, rafting, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, Max Patch on the AT, organic food tailgate markets, Appalachian arts and crafts, authentic Bluegrass music and music festivals, authentic Appalachia.

Bear River Lodge: Gated community with over a mile of private mountain stream. Rustic 'Lodge' clubhouse on the river with rocking chairs and firepit.

Asheville: The Biltmore House, the Blue Ridge Parkway, nightly music venues, scrumptious dining in locally owned restaurants, trails, waterfalls, and too much to mention.

Our Home: Custom 2400 sq. ft. log home nestled in an awe inspiring park like setting. King-sized bed in the master suite with a soaking tub built for 2. Queen beds in bedrooms 2 and 3. Extremely comfortable queen sized futon in the media room. Two twin self inflating air mattresses available for additional guests. Comfortable sofa in loft sleeps 1. Living room has 'lodge' decor, stone 'woodstove' fireplace, vaulted craftsman style ceilings, leather furniture and huge windows for bringing the mountains 'in'. Fully appointed kitchen with granite countertops, Jennair downdraft cooktop, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer, and wall oven. Media room has flat screen TV with satellite dish, wet bar, private bath, and porch. Hardwood and ceramic tile floors throughout. Gas grill on spacious deck with furniture for outdoor dining. Wi-fi internet.

Bear River Lodge: Home is a short stroll to our beautiful trout stream, which flows for over a mile through the neighborhood. Take a stroll along the stream and enjoy the beauty and sounds of the stream. The neighborhood is sparsely populated so feel free to hike or ride bikes 5 miles to the top of the development and enjoy the nature of the surroundings. If you hike quietly you are likely to see deer, turkey, racoons and even a bear or bobcat.

Awe inspiring does not do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

Truly loved it! The home is very clean and well stocked. We wanted for nothing. The views are spectacular and the location is quiet, very peaceful. The little town of Hot Springs is quant, good local beer. The home owner's recommendations are spot on. It was too chilly for us to fish but would love to come back and give it a try. An overall wonderful experience.

Gorgeous home! Very well stocked with everything you will need!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful! Deb does a fantastic job of making you feel at home! There are plenty of blankets, pillows, etc. She supplies all paper products (excluding paper plates/cups). This is a nice change from the beach house we stay in in St. Augustine Beach every summer. The house is secluded, which turned out to be very nice. All of the beds and furniture are very comfortable. We were hoping for a White Christmas and it did snow a little. For us Florida folks it was a White Christmas! We had a great time!

This ended up being the perfect property for my family gathering. The setup of the home lent the perfect blend of family cohesiveness & personal privacy. I couldn't have wished for anything different. We appreciated the well stocked bathrooms and kitchen and the beds/pillows were as comfortable as they come. One couldn't wish for a better view and the surroundings are picturesque! Very much looking forward to renting again when we can all gather in that area of NC. Deb, thank you so much for helping make our weekend so memorable.

Wonderful property. Great for family gatherings and very kid friendly.

  • 5 of 5

The owner has obviously put a lot

of thought and effort into making this home very comfortable. Well equipped kitchen and plenty of extras for a worry-free stay. Probably our best VRBO yet. I would highly recommend this property, especially if you have an event at the lodge below.
