Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)
We co-own our mountain cabin with 2 other couples. We were all college friends and now each have kids and our families love to stay at the cabin whenever we can.
Chad purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Chad chose Blowing Rock
The cabin is located near Blowing Rock and Boone, NC. Its proximity is less than a mile away from an entrance onto the Blue Ridge Parkway. We find something new and exciting to explore every time we go.
What makes this Cabin unique
Our guest book says it best... 1-13-08 We enjoyed another perfect weekend in the mountains for our 3rd Annual post-holiday/New Year Girl’s Weekend! The house is so warm and cozy and we all slept like logs! The location was perfect for us! We enjoyed a great dinner at The Best Cellar in Blowing Rock and a fun night letting loose at Twigs. And what would a girl’s weekend be without a morning at Westglow Spa! But the most important part of the trip is reconnecting with dear friends and talking until the early hours of the next morning! We know we will be back! Tammy Arman, Alison Busch, Jennifer Moier and April Whitlocke 4/13/08 We discovered Blowing Rock for the first time in October of 1994, for our honeymoon. It’s one of our favorite places to re=visit and always will be. This is our first spring, and it’s wonderful, all the fresh air and new life in bloom. It’s the 3rd Annual Blue Ridge Wind Festival. What a treat! The cabins here at the Timber Ridge are the best kept secret, and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at “A Bear’s Den”. We’ll be back!! Pat & Kerry Robinson, Cary, NC 5-4-08 My family and I really enjoyed your cabin. It felt like home away from home. My kids were ready to move in. ? It was very quiet and relaxing. Thanks for making it such a joy to stay here. I would recommend your cabin to my friends and family. ? Thanks, The Lewis Family, Mebane, NC 5-10-2008 We wanted to thank you for an incredible weekend at your cabin. It was the perfect space to bring family together to celebrate my graduation from ASU! Everyone really enjoyed the rocking chairs and between this cozy place and the fresh mountain air (that I am going to miss) we got the best sleep/relaxation. Thank you for a wonderful weekend. Chrissy Phelps and Lisa McGuire. P.S. My family was from Florida and they loved it here. Lots more...

Family Tubing & Skiing Weekend
We had a great family weekend in the mountains at this cabin. It was just the right size for our family and Chad was great to answer any questions we had. We enjoyed our time there.
Very convenient location; easy access between Blowing Rock and Boone. Owner was very responsive and accommodating. Cabin was cozy, tidy and perfect for a weekend getaway.
Great cozy cabin
My family and I had a wonderful stay. We enjoyed ourselves we even stayed an extra day. The cabin is cozy and close to town and Tweetsie. The only down side is the very steep driveway. I was a bit worried so I parked near the end of the drive. No biggie just something to be aware of.
Great weekend getaway
A bear’s den was in a perfect location. Our family had a cozy and pleasant weekend getaway. And, the views were just beautiful.
Thanks so much Ashley! We’re so glad you had a great time and enjoyed the cabin. We were pleased to host you and your wonderful family. Would love to have you back anytime.
Bear Den Thanksgiving
A great family weekend! Centrally located to Boone and Blowing Rock! Everything we needed to cook our Thanksgiving dinner. Owner very helpful in communication prior to our stay. A very nice wood portable crib for our two year old grandson on the premises!
We’d be very happy to return.
Cozy cabin with great views, could be cleaner
Overall, we had a pleasant stay at Bear’s Den. The cabin was nicely furnished, with a rustic look and feel, along with a more modern kitchen with newer appliances. We really liked the huge back porch overlooking the hillside. However, we felt the property could have been cleaner. There was a pile of dead Asian lady beetles laying on the floor near a living room window, and some still flying around inside. Also, things were very dusty, with lots of cobwebs along the ceilings and behind living room furniture. I would suggest some pest control and better cleaning services. We had the impression this unit was vacant/not rented for a long period of time. We would stay here again, with the expectation of improved cleanliness.
Thank you so much for your honest review and feedback. We are incredibly grateful that you brought this housekeeping issue to our attention. We will be working to correct it immediately. I'm sorry that you experienced this issue, but we appreciate you for helping us to rectify it for future renters. We take great pride and creating an awesome rental experience for our guests in our second home.
