We enjoyed a weekend family reunion in this well appointed cabin retreat. Open floor plan and large deck were perfect for family BBQs, meals, and gatherings. The hot tub is a plus as well. Less than twenty minutes to downtown Asheville and all the city has to offer. We hope to visit again soon.
I rented the cabin for my sister’s bachelorette party. We comfortably slept 10 adults in the cabin and enjoyed the open floor plan while making meals and chatting in the kitchen and living room. The cabin is so cozy and has everything you need for a weekend away. The hot tub was amazing for resting our muscles after the long travel and day hiking. This house is close enough to DT Asheville (and Uber’s/Lyfts are easy to catch!) and far enough away to feel like you’re really one with nature. Rebecca was a great host – we’ll be back!

Review: My family of 8 stayed at the Bear’s Den Mountain Cabin for a few days this November for an early Thanksgiving celebration and we couldn’t have been happier with the place.
The kitchen was very nice and roomy, with newer appliances and plenty of counter space for our cooking. The big round table was perfect for our big meal, and there were enough chairs for the eight of us around the table. The high-speed wireless internet was great to have too! It was very clean and warm. The bedrooms are all very nice and cozy. The whole place oozes with charm.
The driveway is steep, but there was no ice or snow, so we had no problem traversing it in our front-wheel drive rental cars. If the weather’s very cold or snowy, you can rest assured that you *will* need four-wheel drive to get to the cabin– Rebecca’s not joking when she tells you that!
Overall, we all loved the place and we were sad to leave. If our travels bring us back to the area, we will definitely be coming back for more!

Review: This home was exactly as described and better than the pictures. 11 of us stayed for 5 days and were very comfortable. The deck was just beautiful and felt so private. You did not need to bring anything except groceries. The beds were extremely comfortable and the bathrooms lovely. I definitely will stay here again. The drive to Asheville was a breeze as was the drive to the Biltmore. You felt as though you were far out and up in the mountains but it took no time at all to get where you wanted to go. Mostly, we loved the place so much that we just stayed put. Lovely, lovely home.

Review: We were really pleased with our stay at this home. It is warm and inviting. The owners have decorated it with lots of quality furnishings. And added some humor as well. The king bed was super comfortable. Everything was very clean. It is located in a really convenient place to explore the area, Very easy to get to and from Asheville. Food Lion just minutes away. It is tucked into lots of trees on a hillside, so there is a lot of privacy. Quiet too. Hot tub, wood-burning fireplace, and garage are great to have. If we are back in this area, we will be sure to see if it is available. And bring family and friends to enjoy. It is a house to be shared. Thank you very much Rebecca!

Review: My wife, our two sons and I just returned from a stay at this log cabin, and we had a great time. The location is perfect, on a wooded piece of property only a short drive off the main road. The house had everything that we needed to relax and enjoy the vacation. We did some cooking, and the kitchen was perfect, and then we just hung out, and enjoyed the quite and family time together.
We were close enough to the downtown area of Asheville to take full advantage, but we loved the place so much that we just stayed put. We would love to return soon.

Review: My husband and I traveled with our 5 month old to this cabin and we were Very Happy with our time there. Everything was very clean and we were adequately accommodated. The location is right next to anything you need or want to do. The owner (Rebecca) is so nice to work with and she will make sure everything is to your standards. She also responds to any questions or comments immediately. I appreciate that very much. This is a cabin we will definitely be returning to soon.

Review: My husband & I recently traveled to Asheville with our 2 dogs. This cabin was perfect for us! It was very clean and in a great location. We were close to everything yet we were still secluded in the woods. The yard was nice for the dogs. The cabin was a good size for just the 2 of us but there is plenty of room if traveling with friends. We will definitely stay there again!

Review: We stayed at Blue Wolf mountain cabin with another couple for four days to attend a wedding in Ashville, and enjoy the area sights. The property was everything it was promised to be. Very comfortable and very clean. We enjoyed our stay very much and would certainly come back for another visit in the future.

Review: This cabin is definitely one of a kind and perfect for a getaway! We enjoyed the location of being close to Asheville but within driving distance of the Smokey Mountain National Park and other hiking destinations. This place is truly a gem for any couple or small family. We will definitely be back!! Rental of the cabin was completely flawless and our planning is usually short notice so we applaud the owner for being on the ball! This was a great vacation spot!

Review: My husband and I finished up a 2-week vacation by staying at this cabin. It is decorated very nicely. All the furnishings make for an authentic feel to the cabin, while all the appliances/fixtures are new. The cabin has a lovely side deck looking toward the trees in the back yard where we enjoyed coffee in the mornings, and cocktails in the evening. The cabin was very clean and well maintained. We really appreciated the cabins close proximately to downtown Asheville. It was so easy getting to dinner (like Asheville Brewery-best pizza) and our favorite “Jack of the Woods”, for their live entertainment.

Review: We loved everything about this cabin, from it’s great location to both the Parkway and Downtown Asheville to the fireplace to the cozy feel it had. We were able to get away from our busy lives and come to the mountains for a peaceful and relaxing retreat. I would highly recommend this cabin to any of our friends and family and can’t wait to return!

This Cabin was exactly as described and even better than the pictures. We stayed for 3 days and loved the experience. The deck was beautiful and so so private. Morning coffee was a Delight. All we supplied was a toothbrush and groceries. Everything else was supplied by Owner. The beds were extremely comfortable and the bathrooms immaculate. Great walking and biking at your fingertips.
We loved everything about this cabin, from it’s great location to Downtown Asheville to the fireplace to the cozy feel it had. We were able to get away from traffic, noise and our busy lifestyle and just completely relax. I would highly recommend this cabin to any of our friends and family and can’t wait to return!

My husband and I came this weekend to visit the Biltmore Estate and found this gem for our weekend stay. I felt like I was stepping back in time with this quaint log cabin. Each room is uniquely and beautifully decorated .It has everything you need for your stay. Rebecca and her family went above and beyond to help us with any concerns we had. The hot tub was wonderful on a cold night . It is convenient to Asheville and other tourist places you may want to visit. Would love to bring my whole family back to visit.

We had such a lovely stay. The cabin is beautiful and well-maintained, and the location is perfect. Plenty of room for the whole family. The kids really enjoyed the campfires at night.
My family with adult children had a wonderful stay at the side by side cabins in Gerton. There was amble space for all within the charming rooms and the decks offered lovely views. A hot tub was a real bonus. The kitchens were well stocked with equipment and dishes for us to do some cooking for family style dining. Nearby, Bearwallow Mountain and Trombatore Trails offered great hikes for clear vistas of the area. The reason I chose the title for my review is because I think a vacation in North Carolina is best when accommodations are comfortable and in a place of peaceful natural beauty.

We loved our visit to this awesome cabin. We definitely would go again! We had an awesome mother/daughter weekend. The cabin is in a great location off the beaten path. It takes 30 mins to go almost anywhere from downtown Asheville to Biltmore. The cabin is cozy, clean and decorated excellently. The house had everything we needed. The hot tub was a nice touch! Being able to bring our Piper girl (dog) was great! She loved to walk around the neighborhood and to the small lake/dam. I highly recommend this place.

A little cabin in the center of everything. The bedroom is cozy. The fireplace is gas with a timer so no building a fire. The view is good. Not as private as I had hoped as there are other cabins surrounding you. The bathroom is pretty. Overall, it served its purpose and we enjoyed our stay.

We had a great time in North Carolina. The cabin was perfect with great amenities. The location worked well for all our hiking, kayaking, and sightseeing needs. The area has beautiful Mountain Views as well as a lake, winery, and brewery within a short 15 minute drive. We were very comfortable in the cabin and would highly recommend it.

What a gem! This cabin is absolutely adorable and well maintained. We enjoyed the waterfall (sounds & playing in it), relaxing in the hot tub, grilling our dinners, and playing with our dog in the open field areas. We are “cabin snobs”, as in we have stayed at the majority of the cabins in the Bat Cave/Chimney Rock area because we frequent the area several times a year. And I must say, THIS one is my new favorite for our family trips. It has everything we possibly needed and then some. We cannot wait to return, hopefully for even longer this time!
We had a great time at Slick Rock Falls. House was clean and had most all the amenities that we needed. We were four adults and this house accommodated our needs perfectly. The beds were comfortable, our showers were hot, the fire place was cozy and not only was the Creek beautiful to look at but the sound was very tranquil. We enjoyed sitting by the fire outside next to the creek and after our long hikes, we enjoyed the hot tub as well. For your food shopping, the grocery store was only about 5 miles from the house. We hiked the trails to the chimney rock Falls, we shopped and ate at the strip of shops right in town. If you love apples, there are plenty to be had here. If you’re looking for a clean relaxing place to stay, I would recommend Slick Rock Falls Lodge.
We ( 4 adults) enjoyed the atmosphere of this cabin. Open the front door…and you’ll think it;s raining, nope just the peaceful sound of the streams waterfall. Stream within 20 feet of cabin, very beautiful! Nice covered, and uncovered exterior decks. Up to date kitchen, with everything you could possible need. Living room with fire place very nice. Hardwood floor throughout. Bedrooms, very nice. Bathrooms very clean. Plenty of towels. Asheville was 35 minutes, Hendersonville 20 minutes, Lake Lure 15 minutes. Chimney Rock Park 15 minutes. We are already talking about going back.

Exactly as described, this picturesque and quaint home is situated next to a peaceful waterfall and is ideal for a relaxing getaway. My husband and I, and our fur-baby Brinkley, spent each night grilling on the porch, unwinding in the hottub, and making smores by the fire pit. During the day, we hiked to several waterfalls and visited some of the apple orchards closeby. The home is as lovely as I had hoped, and was everything we needed for a peaceful weekend away.

Met up with truly wonderful friends for a week of motorcycle riding in the beautiful countryside surrounding this cabin. It was in the perfect location with plenty of room for our vehicles/trailers. Others mentioned mosquitoes which could have been a problem by the fire pit. It didn’t present a problem for us because we chose to spend our evenings relaxing on the spacious deck that wraps around the house. I was very concerned and almost didn’t pick this rental due to the comments about the busy road. We didn’t find it that busy, had no trouble with noise or getting out of the driveway. The only slightly negative comment we would have is the new hot tub is for 2 people. However, this didn’t affect our stay.
