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.
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!

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.

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.
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.
Overall, this place was great and in a peaceful setting not far from town. We would definitely stay here again.

I'm glad you had a nice time in the area during your stay at Little Bear Cottage for the Old Fort wedding. Sounds like you enjoyed the proximity to downtown Black Mountain. Thanks for the feedback!

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.
