Nestled on 3 acres of mountainside splendor, Blue Bear Cabin offers peace and tranquility while giving you the feeling of never wanting to leave. Located only 30 minutes from Black Mountain, 45 minutes from Asheville, and just 20 minutes to Lake Lure, you're far enough away from town but close enough to the amenities of fine dining, shopping, and local attractions. Blue Bear Cabin is a wonderful log cabin with features as follows:

Main floor: full hall bath; bedroom with a Queen and full bath and second bedroom with double-sized bed. A modern well-equipped kitchen and a cozy great room with a gas log fireplace, flat-screen television, and a dining area that seats up to six. The second floor offers a third bedroom with a queen, a half bath, and a loft area for reading, and surfing the internet on a wireless network. The loft includes a queen sofa bed. The cabin has an expansive wrap-around deck with a covered roof in the front and rear offering expansive views and plenty of space to picnic, grill, or just kick back and relax as well as a luxury hot tub (photos coming soon)! The finished basement, downstairs, includes a checkers table, a sitting/reading area, a gas fireplace, and a half bath.

Beware, at dusk or dawn when the bluish hue of the Blue Ridge mountains is most intense you may be privileged to see an ambling black bear pass by which may appear to share the same blue hue as the surrounding mountains!

Please note: This house is pet friendly with an additional pet fee. The driveway down to the cabin is NOT suitable for trailers or campers. Satellite Wifi is available at this home, but due to the internet provider and secluded location, you will only be able to check emails and surf the web. We're sorry, but you are limited in your ability to stream movies, and music, or play games through the internet. Cell phone service is not guaranteed. You may check with your service provider to see if the service is available.

During the colder winter months, icy and/or snowy road conditions and delayed snow plow operations are possible within the development. From December through March, please come prepared with AWD or 4WD vehicles. We also highly recommend travel insurance. A hot tub has been added as of September 2022.

Great cabin for the price

Sent on 2024-02-13 by Rachel

This cabin is a great choice if you're trying to save a little money. It's a little dated, parts of the deck needed to be repaired (caution tape was hanging in a few places), but it does the job. It's spacious, the hot tub is new and large, the view is beautiful and it's very affordable. I'd definitely recommend. It was very clean when we arrived, and we had a great time. I'm happy with our decision to rent this particular cabin.

Manager's Response

Rachel, thank you for reviewing your recent stay at Blue Bear Cabin! We're pleased to hear that you had an overall great experience and enjoyed the hot tub, mountain views, and spacious layout, and we appreciate you sharing your honest feedback with us and recommending this home to future guests. We hope that we'll get the opportunity to host you again when you return to the area!

WONDERFUL GETAWAY!!

Over the past five years, we have rented many cabins (three per year) in the Blue Ridge and Smokey Mountains, mostly through VRBO. This was our first Greybeard rental, and it was far and away a better experience than we have ever had before. The cleanliness was exceptional. When we arrived, there was an issue with the coffee maker not working (very important to us!), and although it was on a Saturday afternoon, the management team immediately brought us a brand new coffee maker. The hot tub was the best we have ever enjoyed, and very clean as it is serviced weekly. They allowed us a complementary late checkout, and our deposit refund was processed in less than a week without our even needing to ask. All amenities/appliances were high quality and were working properly. The furniture was very pleasing, and the bed was really comfortable. I note all these items because in the past with even highly rated VRBO cabins, we have experienced problems with management responsiveness, cleanliness, appliances, fireplaces being out of propane, hot tubs that smelled like chlorine, crummy/broken furniture, etc. This cabin was also dog friendly, which we thought was great, even though we did not have a dog with us. THANK YOU GREYBEARD REALTY! We will definitely seek out a Greybeard rental the next time we visit Black Mountain!

Manager's Response

Wow, thank you so much for this amazing review. We really appreciate the compliments of our service and are so pleased to hear that you had such a nice stay. We are eager to welcome you back again soon!

We had a great time at Blue Bear Cabin. The cabin was clean and comfortable, plenty of towels and extra blankets. The view from the deck is amazing and the screened in porch was the perfect place to curl up with a good book. The owner's provide a good selection of games, the beds were comfortable, there were nightlights in the bathrooms for the kids. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking, we ate most of our meals at home. Good proximity to the town of Black Mountain and easy to get to hiking and other activities in and around Asheville.

The opportunity to dine outdoors on the deck was especially nice given that the space inside was a bit tight for our family. We loved the fireplace and the ability to light it with a "touch". Our Greybeard Rental agent was outstanding their communication from booking to arrival to our leaving. Excellent information about what to expect at the cabin made shopping before arrival easy. David who was our housekeeping service made sure the cabin was clean and ready for our wonderful weekend.

It was very peaceful and comfortable. The property was far enough away from local towns to feel secluded but not so far away to feel isolated. 20 minutes or so in one direction and you are in Chimney Rock. 20 minutes or so in the other direction and you are in the town of Black Mountain. Both locations have plenty of activities, restaurants and points of interest. Asheville is also less than an hour away and offers anything that you might want.

The views are absolutely gorgeous. The house was clean, cozy, along with so much space. We spent hours outside on the porches both the screened in and the one upstairs. I'm already planning my families next stay! A+ all around!

Blue Bear Cabin is a winner!

This cabin is thoughtfully equipped for guests. It's very clean and well maintained. The kitchen has everything you want to prepare meals. The cozy family room provides space to read, watch television or have a conversation. The bedrooms are spacious with nice bedding, and bathrooms have lots of storage and a full supply of towels. Downstairs is another sitting room with tv, laundry facilities and screened in patio. The deck on the main floor is just lovely and provides ample seating for reading or dining. This home has many areas to read, nap or play games. Just bring your clothes and you're all set!

Being that this would be my family's first extended time away since the death of our son in October 2017, my wife and I were looking for a place that would provide beauty, solitude and reprieve from our daily lives. We have always loved the scenic beauty of the mountains and this property, with its location, met all of our expectations...and more. It was exceptionally clean, attractive, spacious and highly functional for our needs. A BIG plus for us is that it was dog friendly. Our dog is old and leaving him behind was not doable. The pet fee was reasonable with not a lot of restrictions on his movements. We think he enjoyed it as much as we did. Perhaps the most telling quality of this property and the concern and care you exhibit to your tenants is the condition of the home itself.This home was CLEAN!!! Extraordinarily so!!! I commend your cleaning staff for performing this service with obvious pride and concern. The home was more than spacious to accommodate all of us (three people and a dog) and provide plenty of room for privacy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property and would heartily do so again myself is I make it back to the area. Thank you Greybeard Rentals for your professionalism and being a part of the wonderful time we had.

Blue Bear Cabin is a great place to take the family for a getaway. The cabin is very nicely decorated and furnished in a traditional cabin feel. The kitchen is well stocked with all of the dishes,pots, pans and tools you need to cook. The view was amazing. Christmas decorations were adorable. Staff was responsive to all calls and questions. Unfortunately the internet was spotty and slow then quit working altogether which did present a problem while trying to plan activities. I suggest printing out your desired activities in advance of your trip just in case. The driveway and road to the cabin are steep but well maintained might be an issue in icy conditions if you don't have four wheel drive.

Manager's Response

Sorry to hear about the internet. Internet can be a bit more spotty in mountain locations from time to time, unfortunately. I'm glad you enjoyed the stay otherwise and found it to be well stocked for your family getaway!

My husband and I stayed at Blue Bear for four nights in November, and we loved our stay! The home is incredibly clean and has everything you could need. This would be the perfect rental for a family because there are so many places to sit! There are several seating areas inside along with large and comfortable outdoor furniture. We spent a lot of time just reading and relaxing next to the fire. We also loved the proximity to the town of Black Mountain and spent quite a bit of time wandering around down there. Our favorite place to eat was the Straightaway Caf, just a few short miles from Blue Bear - definitely check it out!

Manager's Response

This sounds lovely! I'm so glad you had a nice time at Blue Bear Cabin. Straighaway Cafe is a good find close to Blue Bear!

My husband and I stayed at the Blue Bear Cabin in November of this year. Even though the weather didn't cooperate, we still had an amazing time. The Blue Bear cabin was immaculate and well appointed. We looked forward to curling up on the couch by the fireplace after a day of sightseeing. We were about equidistant between between Black Mountain and Chimney Rock. If you are looking to explore the area, see stunning natural beauty and try some delicious craft bears, this is the perfect cabin for you.

Manager's Response

Sounds great. I'm glad you enjoyed the time at Blue Bear Cabin despite the weather.

Absolutely beautiful and extremely relaxing. The cabin was spacious with a very well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed grilling out with the sunset as our view. This was a wonderful vacation spot for myself, husband, our two 13 year old sons, and our dog. In terms of location, we enjoyed the town of Black Mountain- so many amazing restaurants and shops- about 10 miles away one way, and the various trails and waterfalls, including Chimney Rock, the other way. Our boys also enjoyed zip lining at Navitat.

We who stayed for the weekend with a two other couples. We were very excited to see how clean and nice the house was. There was plenty of space for people to separate, with several different sitting and living areas. However, we spent most of our time on the porch, relaxing and enjoying the view! The kitchen is well stocked with pots & pans, utensils, spices & a coffee maker. This house is very nice and clean, yet still gives you the true mountain cabin feel. We will definitely stay here again!

This cabin was a great way to get-away from it all. It was secluded and surrounded by beautiful scenery. It was the epitome of the words \"log cabin\". Every part of the cabin was decorated and accented with the cabin theme. It was clean, comfortable and a great experience being there. It's located fairly close to the town of Black Mountain and not that far from Asheville. We climbed Chimney Rock, hiked up Tom's Creek Falls, drove The Blue Ridge Parkway and spent several hours at The Biltmore. I wished we could have stayed longer, there is so much more to explore. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blue Bear Cabin.

Our family of 5, greatly enjoyed our trip to the Blue Bear Cabin. The cabin was clean on our arrival. There was plenty of space for our family, which included 3 adult children and spouse. The back deck overlooking the mountains ended up being where we spent most of our time. We were quite thankful for the air conditioning, which worked very well, as most of the days we were there the temperature was in the 90's. There is plenty of seating area and space for gathering. The cabin is approximately 40 minutes away from Asheville, and 20 minutes to Black Mountain. The cabin is dog friendly and our lab enjoyed her stay, as well. Overall, we were very pleased.

This cabin has majestic views - the photos don't do it credit! You want to live on the porch forever. The cabin is spotless, and has every amenity you can imagine (except shampoo and sugar). Beds and rooms are very comfortable. Although it is quite out of the way from Asheville with a winding road, and we were questioning the choice as the road went on and on in the hills, once you get there its worth every minute of the drive. The rental company communication is also very good.

Oh good! So glad you enjoyed your time at Blue Bear 's such a great home. Happy to hear that our communication was helpful. Thanks, and come back to stay with us at Greybeard Rentals again soon!

We had a great experience at Blue Bear, just not enough time. The cabin is well maintained and was very clean, and included everything you would need for a great visit. This was our second time staying with Greybeard. We stayed at Jarrett Creek Cottage last Nov. It is also a very nice home located alongside a large peaceful running creek, no view really, but we felt it had a good location to points of interest. Greybeard was very helpful both times and provided more than enough information for our stay, and made it known they were always available. We also appreciated the gift of delicious pumpkin bread from the Black Mtn Bakery upon our arrival,and the great coffee from Dynamite Roasting Co. was a nice surprise too this time. We have purchased their coffee when we visit & also on-line from home. Blue Bear is beautifully decorated and cozy, and was a great place to relax and enjoy nature and the fresh mountain air. The sitting area in the loft and upstairs bedroom are particularly welcoming, although we really loved the whole cabin. It was great taking in the views from the porch off of the living room that wraps around & the screened-in porch downstairs, that both have very comfortable furniture. We also enjoyed our time at Chimney Rock (really mostly the hiking trails/great waterfall), and our hikes at all of the trails at Linville Falls (spectacular), and Roaring Fork Falls(unique falls), along with all of the beautiful views from the Blue Ridge Parkway. We highly recommend and enjoyed eating again at Fresh Wood Fired Pizza and Pasta & the Trailhead Rest. & Pub both in Black Mtn along with shopping in town. Have to also recommend 12 Bones Smokehouse in Asheville near where our daughter lives. Had to stop there upon our arrival from PA for their great Barbecue. We feel the owners have really put a lot of thought into this cabin, and it's those special touches that make it a memorable place to stay and want to return to along with also having a beautiful view.

Manager's Response

Glad you enjoyed the Dynamite coffee that we give to returning guests! It really is great coffee. So pleased to hear that your second visit was enjoyable at Blue Bear Cabin and you were able to enjoy that great view from the cabin. We look forward to next time!!

As soon as we arrived we were welcomed by a beautiful view and a beautiful cabin. We were able to bring our dog and she loved it. On the counter was fresh made pumpkin bread my favorite and a suprice for our dog a travel dog bowel. I always wanted one especially since we hike. Each room was decorated beautifully and the gas fireplace kept us warm since it rained every day. Asheville is 30 min from the cabin. We will definitely come back to this cabin even my housband said it's the best one we stayed in. Thank you for having us in your beautiful home. I had to buy the same beat throw in Asheville like the cabin has :)

We had a wonderful time at the Blue Bear Cabin. It was perfect for our extended weekend trip with our three adult children. We climbed Catawba Falls, played games at the Asheville Pinball Museum and visited The Biltmore. We spent each evening on the back deck watching the sunset, talking, laughing and enjoying the view.
The cabin was great for us with the three bedrooms and the pull out sofa in the loft. We would definitely recommend this to others.

The rental was perfect. It is very roomy (with the exception of the main floor sitting area) and the downstairs allowed us to play games or watch TV separately from the group talking on the main level. The main floor sitting room is a little tight with the table (we put in the board) and large sofa, but, again, between the downstairs and the loft, all 5 of our guests were comfortable. The description does not accurately reflect the extra rooms downstairs (including a screened porch and 1/2 bath) so it was a pleasant surprise. The trips to Black Mountain, Asheville, Biltmore, and Chimney Rock were relatively close and nice drives through the mountains. Views were great, from beautiful fog clouds, to sunsets, to stars at night from the deck.

There was enough towels for everyone and the property was clean and well-maintained. The kitchen had everything we needed. The Christmas tree and decorations made it feel like home. We left an ornament on the tree for the owners!

I would definitely recommend this property and hope to be able to come back.

Manager's Response

We added photos of the finished basement, but improved the description after reading your feedback about the extra rooms downstairs (thanks for the feedback!). I'm so glad you had an enjoyable time over the Christmas holiday!

Blue Bear Cabin is a well appointed, private cabin about 20 minutes from Black Mountain, and 40 minutes from Asheville. It sits in a beautiful environment and has everything you need. We and our dogs enjoyed the expansive porch and in two weeks, saw one other car on the road. We love to cook and would have liked more counter space, but the kitchen has all the basics. The dining area is cramped but you can spill out onto the porch. Our kids came for one weekend and the cabin comfortably accommodated three adult couples. We would definitely rent the cabin again. Kudos to the owners for creating a homey, comfortable retreat.

We had a very nice time with extended family at the Blue Bear Cabin. Our grandson enjoyed counting all the bears (upwards of 125!) It is a comfortable and accommodating place to stay and we will, no doubt, come again. One small criticism is that it would be nice to have a larger cutting board and a dish drainer for hand washed dishes. I also would have preferred to know before booking about the added fee and taxes, rather than thinking my total cost would be the one shown.

Manager's Response

Thanks to your grandson for taking inventory on the bear count. ;) So glad the stay was so enjoyable. Regarding taxes and fees: and fees are mentioned on rate quotes and are shown on the final booking screen before your finalize your reservation so I'm not quite sure what's being referred to, but we'd love to resolve it if there was a confusing issue in the booking process. Just let us know! Thanks for your feedback all around and we'll look forward for the next visit!!

Renting from Grey Beard was a wonderful experience, working with Renda Barnes made everything so easy and smooth-she is an amazing help, very quick to reply and was genuinely concerned with helping us find the right rental for us. Blue Bear cabin is amazing, it's an authentic log cabin with modern amenities and incredible mountain views. The deck is beyond compare and adds so much to the experience of the mountains! There are so many wonderful things we loved about our stay: Enjoying the sunset on the deck, cozying up by the gas fireplace, lounging on the very comfortable indoor and outdoor furniture, being together in the open floor plan, quiet time in the loft area reading beside the Christmas tree, sleeping soundly in the very comfy beds, hiking around the local hills, enjoying the local cuisine in town -just to mention a few. We plan to return and hope it's sooner than later! The only suggestion we have is for an on-site garbage storage or bear box (we weren't aware we would have to transport trash to the rental office dumpster) other than that our trip was perfection!

Manager's Response

Great! So glad to hear Renda set you up with Blue Bear Cabin and you enjoyed the stay there. Thanks for the feedback and suggestion - we appreciate that. Come back and stay with Greybeard again soon!

We had a great time. The cabin was there perfect balance of remoteness and accessibility. It was a pleasure even to drive route 9 because it reminded us of our years in Colorado. The view from the back deck is spectacular. We took advantage of the tickets to the Biltmore available through he Greybeard Rental office as well. I've seen others mention the occasional highway noise from rt. 9 when on the back deck as a negative, but I kind of enjoyed it. It offset the remoteness of the view nicely I thought.

Happy to hear that you enjoyed the stay at Blue Bear Cabin. I hope the Biltmore visit was fun for you too. Come back and visit soon!

This was our second stay at Blue Bear and it was just as enjoyable as the first stay. The cabin was clean, cozy, and quiet..a perfect combination to help us relax. The weather was perfect for the entire time we stayed. In the upper 50's at night, in the low 80's during the day. We spent the week looking for our retirement home site (successfully!) and had a marathon shopping day in Asheville and Black Mountain on Friday. It was tough leaving on Saturday, but we're planning another trip to Blue Bear in the spring.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blue Bear Cabin. We had 3 couples in town for a friend's wedding and the accommodations were just perfect. There was plenty of space and all of the amenities made our stay very pleasant. We just wish we had been able to stay longer!

Manager's Response

That's great. Yes - we do hope you come back soon and take some extra time to enjoy!

Blue Bear Cabin is wonderful!

We have stayed at Blue Bear Cabin twice and plan to return next year! The house is very clean and well equipped for everything we needed for two adults, two kids, and one Labrador. The back porch with that mountain view is the best!

Manager's Response

Great! Thanks for being a repeat guest of Greybeard & Blue Bear Cabin! We'll look forward to welcoming you next year.

Wonderful!!

We have rented vacation homes all over, and this is by far the most charming. Great views, comfortable beds, beautifully decorated, private. They welcome you with a huge loaf of pumpkin bread. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Manager's Response

So glad you enjoyed it and what a compliment that this was one of your favorites! Come back soon and stay longer with us next time! :)

This is just the most homely house. The house is situated in the middle of the mountains and the view is just fabulous.

Greybeard rentals was great to work with and the cabin was clean and welcoming. The pumpkin bread left as a welcome present was a wonderful touch and we all enjoyed it immensely. The cabin was well equipped with all the necessary kitchen essentials and we enjoyed cooking in the kitchen. The cabin is within 15 min of Lake Lure and Chimney rock and about a half hour from Asheville. My friends and I would definitely stay here again.

Manager's Response

Glad you enjoyed the pumpkin bread and working with us. :) Blue Bear is a great cabin!
We will look forward to welcoming you back!

With a great view overlooking the mountains, Blue Bear Cabin is the perfect vacation getaway. We were 6 adults staying at the cabin, and the rooms were just right for us all. Black Mountain has ideal shops for buying everything you need for your stay. Hiking is within a short drive and make sure to visit the amazing Lake Lure. Can highly reconmend Blue Bear Cabin and GrayBeared Rentals

This was a great weekend! We visited our daughter in Black Mtn and had many trips back and forth...the distance was the only drawback, but we would definitely do this again. We also had a minor struggle determining the wifi pw because the \"Cabin Manual\" was buried in several magazines and books. We figured it out and I would only suggest that the pw be explicitly posted on the refrigerator. EVERYTHING was really nice and this is our first choice whenever we come back to this area!

Amazing secluded 8 miles from town fully stocked kitchen - VIEWS!

Perfect spot to hide from the world with Black Mountain restaurants off the charts - summer views - pots/pans - hiking near and far - deck spacious - cabin designed well with space to move/closets/drawers - great afternoon rain storms - fans in every room w/air - a great choice! Spent whole month of June - CLEAN!!!!

Great house. Got a little hot.

Very nice rental. Quiet, secluded, all the items I needed. A nice four days seeing my daughter and grandchildren. One review I read talked of the road noise on Route 9. Only noticeable when outside, thenonly minimally. Not a heavily travelled road. The concrete slab is begging for a hot tub and then this cabin would be heavenly. Views are just gorgeous.

FAQs

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Blue Bear Cabin is located in Black Mountain. This home is approximately 30 minutes to downtown Black Mountain, 20 minutes to Chimney Rock and Lake Lure, and 45 minutes to Asheville. Click on the location tab above to locate this house on a map.

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY?

If you need to cancel your reservation and the property you had reserved re-rents for the time which you had it reserved, you will be refunded all money you had paid minus an $89 cancellation fee. If you cancel and the property does not re-rent for your reserved dates, you will lose all money you have paid to that point. For this reason, we recommend that you purchase trip insurance. Please call 888-228-8008 before making a reservation if you have questions or concerns.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY AND FEE?

Blue Bear Cabin is specified as "pet friendly" and dogs are allowed. Unfortunately, due to common allergy problems we cannot allow cats. For the privilege of bringing your dog, there is a minimum charge of $100 nonrefundable fee per pet. A maximum of two dogs are allowed unless you have received special permission from the property manager or homeowner. Any damage that may be caused by your pet during your stay will be paid for out of your security deposit or charged to the credit card we have on file. There is a county-wide leash law in place. When taking your dog outside of a gated area, please ensure that they are on a leash. 

WHAT ARE CHECK-IN/CHECK OUT TIMES?

Check-in time is 4pm and check out time is 10am. It is important that we adhere to these times, because there is a chance that someone else will be checking out/in before or after you and we need sufficient time to ready the house for the next renter.

WHERE DO WE CHECK-IN/PICK UP KEYS?

Blue Bear Cabin has a keyless entry system. You will receive a unique access code within 3 days of your arrival, allowing you to go straight to the house and check-in starting at 4pm.

WHAT IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY DURING OUR STAY?

If you are having a medical emergency, dial 911 from the phone in your rental home or cell phone.

We hope that your stay in the area will be relaxing and without incident, but should you need to get in touch with Greybeard, we have someone on call 24 hours a day. Just call our office at 828-669-1072 and dial extension 203, which will forward to the cell phone of the person on call. Please do not hesitate to call us if something needs immediate attention, but if your question or concern can wait, we ask that you call the office during normal office hours.

WHEN IS THE SECURITY DEPOSIT REFUNDED?

Security deposits are returned within 30 days of guest departure.

WHEN ARE HOMES WITH GAS LOGS IN OPERATION?

Gas logs are not in operation May through September due to the warmer summer months. 

Absolutely NO fires are permitted outside unless the property is fitted with a fire ring/fire pit. You cannot bring your own portable fire pit. 

IS WIFI SERVICE INCLUDED WITH MY RENTAL RESERVATION? WILL I HAVE CELL PHONE SERVICE AT MY RENTAL?

Wifi is available at Blue Bear Cabin. Please note that Greybeard Rentals does not guarantee internet connectivity or speed. Each individual homeowner contracts directly with an internet service provider, and due to a variety of reasons, Greybeard does not guarantee service. Our Black Mountain and Asheville offices have wifi service available if needed.

Cell phone service is not guaranteed. You may check with your service provider to see if service is available.
