If you’re craving a secluded log cabin, nestled in more than 5 acres of the western NC mountains, then Dancing Bears Cabin is calling your name. Located in the gated community of Gateway Mountain, this 3-bedroom, 3-bath home offers majestic views and accessibility to numerous amenities.
This one-level log home features an updated kitchen, exposed beams in the great room, and a mountain stone fireplace. Large picture windows bring the outside view in, and outdoors can be enjoyed on the large, wooden deck with remarkable views. On cooler evenings, circle around the outdoor firepit and enjoy the evening stars, unfiltered by city lights. The natural beauty and peacefulness with transport you a million miles away, although you will remain in proximity to Asheville, Black Mountain and Lake Lure offerings.
As an example, in nearby Asheville, wander through the Downtown Asheville Art District during the 1st Friday Art Walk (you guessed it, the first Friday of each month through December 2017). Stop in at Lexington Glassworks and enjoy glassblowing, live music and craft beer. In Black Mountain, stop by the Swannanoa Valley Museum to enjoy the “Palaces for the People: Guastavino and America’s Great Public Spaces” exhibit. Raphael Guastavino, a Spanish architect and tile artist, created more than 600 tile domes during his lifetime, including Asheville’s St. Lawrence Basilica, the largest freestanding elliptical dome in North America. As you’ll see if you look through Greybeard Rentals’ Events page, the possible activities and diversions are limitless.
It’s very possible, however, that guests at Dancing Bears will want to remain close to home to take advantage of the wonderful amenities offered throughout Gateway Mountain. This gated mountain community in Old Fort has 3000 acres of hardwood forest. A noted nature preserve and wildlife sanctuary, Gateway has two lakes, waterfall access, hiking trails, and a trout pond. The natural features that many visitors seek out in western NC are available right within the community.
Whether it’s for a memorable family gathering or a romantic couples getaway, Dancing Bears may be the spot.
