Description

Green-built cottage near downtown Black Mountain. Little Bear Cottage is nestled in a quiet forest grove with over an acre of peaceful tranquility and privacy, yet only a 4 minute walk to Ingles Market groceries, and a 10 minute walk into the heart of downtown Black Mountain. This sleek contemporary home offers comfort, elegance, beauty, and convenience. This 876 square foot, one bedroom cottage (named for the little bear in the trees the day the owners bought the land), is fully appointed with a spacious master bedroom and full bath (shower) on the 2nd floor. The main floor is an open area with high ceilings. The living room with gas logs, TV, dining area and kitchen, laundry and half bath are on the main floor. Walk out the back door to a wonderful screened porch area with table and chairs for dining.

Please note that construction of a second cottage is occurring on the far section of the lot where Little Bear Cottage is located. Construction is expected to begin after July 18th.

FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Little Bear Cottage is located in Black Mountain. This home is less than 5 minutes to downtown Black Mountain and approximately 25 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?

Little Bear Cottage is not “pet friendly”. Please be respectful of those owners who, because of allergies or other personal reasons, have chosen not to allow any pets. If housekeeping notes that a pet was present on a non-pet friendly property during your visit, you will be charged a minimum of $600 to clean carpets, upholstered furniture and complete air purification measures. Bringing a pet to a house that is not pet-friendly without owner consent or permission from Greybeard is grounds for termination of the rental agreement without refund. If you must travel with your pet, please contact us for local boarding recommendations. More info about service animals and the ADA is available here.

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. If you wish to check-in early, there is a $50 early check-in fee that can be added on to your reservation. Early check-in is only available if someone is not checking out on the morning of your arrival.

WHERE DO WE CHECK-IN/PICK UP KEYS?

Little Bear Cottage 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 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 Little Bear Cottage. 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.

The size of the cabin was a perfect little place for 2, the location is great, right in the middle of Black Mountain and only 15 minutes from downtown Asheville. So it made it really convenient to get to see most of everything I wanted to, there's just so much to do and see. It does help if you have a truck/car with 4 wheel drive going up and down the hill.

We liked how easy it was to get to the grocery store, gas stations and interstate. The space was perfect - not too big and not too small. The binder of information was helpful so that we could settle in and enjoy the cottage during our stay.

The house is beautiful!

This cottage has everything you want in a vacation rental - comfortable, clean, well-appointed and tucked on a quiet wooded lot. But it's the attention to design and detail that make it exceptional, especially the upstairs bedroom with its beautiful wood floor, furniture and custom sloping wall. The bed and bedding were also top notch. It's close to everything in Black Mountain, but with the steep driveway and mountain roads you'll use the car for most outings.

Perfect stay!

Little bear cabin was exactly perfect for us! Black mountain is a great small town that has everything you could want, without the Asheville crowds, but also is close enough to Asheville to go if you wanted. This cabin is right off the main road, so that you feel safe, but on a big acre lot with lots of trees so that you still feel secluded. So many great hiking trails near by! I loved the cabin's modern style and spacious interior. We also really appreciated that Little Bear Cottage had thoughtfully decorated- there weren't little knick knacks in every corner like you find in so many other cabins. This was great as we had our one year old with us, and there was nothing unsafe for him to get to. Also, there was plenty of open rugs to set his travel crib up! Lastly, the Greybeard team was also really prompt, friendly, and communicative (Even on the weekend!) when we had a small issue with a door being loose. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a mountain getaway!

This place is amazing!

We loved the absolute privacy and serenity of the location. We did not expect a rainy week in the 50s and 60s in June, so we enjoyed the warmth and ambiance of the fire. We also were grateful for a check-in procedure that did not necessitate human contact in this time of social distancing.

This place was so much better than expected. <BR>From the location, secluded yet within 2 minutes of town and within a short drive to so many different quaint little towns, to the beautiful, modern, well equipped house. This place is the perfect getaway for couples looking to just interact with nature, explore, hike, and mostly relax.

This was the absolute perfect space! It is only about 15 minutes outside of Asheville in the wonderful community of Black Mountain. We are so happy we discovered this place and little town. The host recommended the Holly Jolly festival which was a perfect event to see the town shops and enjoy some Christmas cheer! The space was impeccably clean and sports a very modern interior. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!

Super adorable house. Everything new and beautiful. Very clean and well appointed. Much better than many 5 star hotels. The setting is fantastic and you're still close to town. Would highly recommend it!

This cottage was absolutely amazing. I was in town for a wedding in Asheville, and it was only a 20 minute drive to the city. The location is perfect. Nestled in the Forrest, serine and quiet. The house was extremely modern, all updated appliances and an all around cool space. The bathroom upstairs has heated floors...amazing. The fireplace is great for evening hangs and enjoying the solitude. I would recommend this place for anyone who is looking to get away and truly be alone with nature.

We stayed here for Labor Day weekend as part of an Asheville area adventure and honestly we had just as much fun spending time in the house as we did exploring! The house is adorable and has a very relaxing atmosphere. It is very unique and so beautiful. The natural light is amazing in the day and at night when it cooled down opening the windows to listen to the bugs chirp combined with the fireplace was perfect. It was so close to main roads and the grocery store getting around was a breeze, and all the while you felt like you were tucked away in the middle of nowhere while at the house. I would HIGHLY recommend this property to anyone looking for a getaway that isn't SO far away. The kitchen is wonderful and fully stocked so we spent one night in cooking our own meal and it was a dream. The owners of the house also have wonderful booklets of information on the home and surrounding areas that made it VERY easy to acclimate. Gorgeous new appliances and easy to control AC/Heat was wonderful. It was a very welcoming space and all the surrounding areas were gorgeous. This is my favorite rental I have ever stayed in. We went on the trip wanting to relax and came back so recharged. Communicating with Greybeard was so easy. They were highly responsive and upon arrival we were greeted with a bottle of wine for our anniversary and a baggie of household necessities. This home exceeded my expectations and is really one of a kind.<BR>

We enjoyed the peace and tranquility of this beautiful and thoughtfully designed cottage. It is very conveniently located close to shopping and downtown Black Mountain, but it feels like a retreat in the woods. We were very impressed with the owners' attention to every detail.

My husband and I rented this amazing tiny house because he ran the Spartan race in black mountain. I could not attend because I was wearing a cask from a recent foot surgery. I called Graybeard explained the situation. The friendly representative discussed several options. I settled on Little Bear. This was absolutely the best decision I could have made. Actually it was therapeutic. This little house was filled with positive energy. I love the design, modern and sleek. I love the stillness. I love the hawk and other birds that comforted me. My husband and I left better people as a result of our stay at Little Bear. Thanks for the great weekend.

Close to black mountain and I 40. Everything is new and upscale. It is located down in the creek area and hard to tell much about it from google maps. Had a great stay. If I owned it I would put better quality outdoor furniture and pull den screen on front windows.t

This cottage is just minutes from downtown Black Mountain. The location was perfect for me and my wife who were in town for a wedding in Old Fort. It was very easy to travel back and forth between Asheville, Black Mountain, and Old Fort.<br/> The cottage is brand new and had great style. The architecture seemed to be a mix of Scandinavian and mountain cottage designs. The cottage is small but the high ceilings made it feel simultaneously spacious and cozy. <br/> Overall, this place was great and in a peaceful setting not far from town. We would definitely stay here again.

My significant other and I came to North Carolina to spend my birthday in Black Mountain and it was awesome ! It was clean and cozy just what we were looking for in a getaway. The cabin was beautifully decorated and designed with the elements of a home away from home . From the serenity to the local area it was exactly what we needed. My only issues were the privacy issue of the windows downstairs . We felt having privacy film would have been helpful blinds would have taken away the atmosphere. Also the driveway was a little scary at night perhaps having some sort of guard railing would help for guests who arent comfortable with the driving elevation. Overall we were pleased with our stay and would contact your company for future accommodations.

Wonderful! Glad to hear you had a nice time at Little Bear Cottage. Thank you for the glowing review about your birthday stay there! We also appreciate your feedback about the privacy blinds - that is good input to be available to the owner.
