Description

Nestled on 10 acres of mountain side splendor, Blue Bear Cabin offers peace and tranquility while giving you the feeling of never wanting to leave. Located only 15 minutes from Black Mountain, 25 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-equiped kitchen and a cozy great room with a gas log fireplace, flat screen television and a dining area seats up to six. The second floor offers a third bedroom, a half bath and a loft area for reading, surfing the internet on a wireless network or an extra sleeping area with a pull out Queen-sized 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. The finished basement, downstairs, includes a checkers table, a sitting/reading area, woodstove and half bath. More information at bluebearcabin dot net. 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. For the month of December, the cabin is all dressed up for Christmas. Enjoy the beautifully decorated tree and cozy up around the fireplace.

Blue Bear cabin was a wonderful experience for us. Four of us from Michigan joined our son from Raleigh for a family gathering. The cabin allowed us both privacy and community space. Beautifully decorated and seemed almost brand new. We loved the seclusion of the setting.

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.

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 response on 2017-01-06 - Response from Greybeard Rentals
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!

Very convenient to Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. Stunning view from back porch. Finished basement with second TV an unexpected bonus. Two nice bedrooms on main floor, one upstairs; many bathrooms. Only downside in summer is to get main floor comfortable it's a bit cold in basement and a bit warm upstairs. All told, tho, a beautiful, well-stocked house that we'll likely return to.

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 response on 2016-05-05 - Response from Greybeard Rentals
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 response on 2016-01-21 - Response from Greybeard Rentals
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!

Overall is was a very good experience. Really enjoyed the beautiful view and the decorated Christmas tree and lights added a very nice touch. Only downside was the small kitchen. Our family likes to cook and found the kitchen a little cramped.

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.
Manager response on 2015-09-24 - Response from Greybeard Rentals
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.
Manager response on 2015-09-09 - Response from Greybeard Rentals
I'm glad your retirement home search proved successful and that you had an enjoyable stay! We will look forward to welcoming you back to Blue Bear!

Our family of six stayed in the Blue Bear Cabin, and we thoroughly enjoyed everything about it! The cabin is beautiful and comfortable! The view was incredible, which was a treat AND a surprise for us! The cabin was very clean when we got there also. And the rental experience with the Greaybeard Rental was very professional and the process went very smoothly! We contacted them on a Saturday morning, and in a few hours we were ready to go for our vacation the following Monday! All in all we highly recommend the cabin and the people in charge of it!

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.

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!

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

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.
