Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Enjoy breathtaking Blue Ridge views and serenity without needing to drive far up a mountain. Among the first properties in a private, gated community featuring paved roads and driveway. Dancing Bears is nestled within 5+ acres near Black Mountain, Lake Lure and Asheville. Convenient to everything, but feels a million miles away. Perfect for enjoying nature and recharging. In a gated community featuring paved roads and driveway. Whether you’re looking for a memorable family retreat or romantic getaway, Dancing Bears Cabin is a one-level, 3-bedroom, 2-bath log cabin. It’s located in beautiful Gateway Mountain, a 3,000-acre hardwood forest, nature preserve and wildlife sanctuary. Enjoy majestic, layered Blue Ridge Mountain views from the deck and toast marshmallows in the outdoor fire pit. Gaze at a peaceful night sky full of stars and constellations. Cook -- or don't cook -- in a modern kitchen. Curl up on a comfy sofa and enjoy a crackling fire. Surround yourself with natural stone and beautiful woodwork and fresh air. Gateway Mountain’s amenities include a private lake for swimming, a trout pond for catch-and-release fishing (no license required), hiking trails and a waterfall park. Dancing Bears Cabin features Wi-Fi high-speed Internet, 2 high-definition TVs connected to DirecTV (150+ channels), a king-size bed, queen-size bed and 3 bunk beds (6 twin-size beds). Master bedroom and living room enjoy views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Head into Asheville for delicious restaurants, shopping and entertainment. Lake Lure is nearby for big-lake swimming and boating. Explore quirky shops and restaurants in Black Mountain. Or, never step foot off the mountain. Enjoy your home away from home any way you like! Look forward to welcoming you!

Please note: Because we're in the mountains, Wi-Fi is offered via satellite. Although it's fast and perfect for checking emails, Facebook (social media), and surfing the web, please do not stream movies or music or engage in high-bandwidth activities (playing Internet-based games). Doing so will cause Internet connectivity to slow to a crawl. Instead, DirecTV offers many music channels for your listening pleasure and 150 TV channels. Also, the driveway is steep, but it's paved, and there is plenty of parking at the cabin.

Due to allergies, no smoking and no pets, please.

This was the 5th rental we have used at GM and turned out to be the best! Greybeard rental staff was great and communicated regularly providing all needed information and much more. We would stay in this log home again. The only challenge is the slow internet and one bar cellular reception.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! I'm so glad that Dancing Bears Cabin was your favorite Gateway Mountain rental so far and that you enjoyed working with us at Greybeard. We look forward to welcoming you back. Thanks for the feedback about the internet and cell reception. Verizon cell service tends to work the best in the mountains. We provide a little blurb about the wireless connection in the description of this property and will seek ways to further highlight this detail - so thank you for the so glad you found the stay enjoyable regardless! Wifi and cell service does tend to have its challenges in the mountains in general.

Reviewer Comments:

Our stay at Dancing Bears was just what my family needed! We were able to remove ourselves from the chaos of holiday activities and spend time as a family. We lacked for nothing while at the cabin. The cabin is beautiful and has most anything you need. We enjoyed cozying up to the fire as we watched Christmas movies. The coffee table was a great place for puzzles and Christmas crafts. Food prep was a breeze as the kitchen has most every bowl, pot, pan or accessory you might need. The cabin was small enough for us to stay connected, but there were plenty of rooms to escape to if you needed a break. The beds were very comfortable and plenty of linens were provided. We have no complaints and hope to be able to make a return visit in the future!

My family had a wonderful time. Better than I imagined. We did excursions for 2 of the days to Ashville and Chimney Rock both of which the kids (5&8 y/0) and my wife and I had wonderful time. I am already thinking of visiting again and using same cabin as I appreciated it being in gated community and very well maintained and enough outside that I could keep my 2 boys busy.

Our family enjoyed a 3 night stay at the Dancing Bear. The cabin was beautiful - inside and out! The house was just perfect for us. It had all the anmenties we needed. It was close enough to excursions and also private so you felt like you were on top of your own mountain.
