Well worth the stay and the amenities are great! Loved the views during the snow. Me and the girl friend had a nice long weekend away watching the snow fall. FYI it is very very private and beautiful.
Wonderful weekend getaway. Dark skies for star gazing, low connectivity to allow you to unplug and relax into the beautiful setting. Highly recommended
The location and cabin were perfect for a weekend getaway!
The air bnb was exactly as described. My dog really enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and she loved the huge deck. Carolina Mornings did an excellent job communicating with me and resolving any issues I had. I would definitely book with them again.
Such a great spot! It was so pretty looking out at the stream and fields from the porch. Hot tub was a perfect way to relax each night (keep in mind it is a 2 person hot tub). Location was pretty convenient, with downtown Black Mountain about 15 minutes and Asheville 30 minutes!
Great serene location, no interference from neighbors. Fenced dog area was great, provided good exercise and safe space for pets. Walking trails located right along property were great, stream and waterfalls added to the experience.
We loved our stay at Black Bear cabin. The cabin was clean and had modern furnishings. We will be going back again. We loved everything at the cabin. The location was incredible, our dogs lived their best lives running and playing in the nearby creek. We will be booking this cabin again. Thanks for a great vacation!
Great hot tub!
"overall fantastic, restful, peaceful, and comfy. The hot tub was great and the labels with directions were perfect and in the right places"
The cabin was very beautiful and clean!
"Shelby, thank you for your service. We had a great time very clean and beautiful cabin. "
This was a nice quiet New year's for us. Blackbear Cabin was a restful and peaceful time. A nice place to nap on a cold rainy day.
"The location was ideal for us as we were able to visit the biltmore, Asheville, black mountain town, chimney rock and lake lure all with ease. The layout of the house was also perfect for us as we had our 9 month old son and 2 dogs with us. We were able to set our son up in the guest room to sleep and go down to the basement to watch tv, go in the hot tub, etc without fear of waking him. This home has a fully fenced in area for dogs which was so helpful! They provide plenty of towels, soaps and other starters, that we used and appreciated. We enjoyed our stay and this home was great for us given our current phase of life. We were very happy with the location and layout and really enjoyed our trip. Ps. The neighbors down the road are phenomenal and really added to the fond memories that we made!!"
We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this property - we would recommend. 5-star cleanliness - kitchen was well stocked.
"We loved the closeness to nature, that it was safe, secluded and dog friendly. In fact, our dogs Gizmo and Inman have provided their opinions: We are 2 2yr old German Shepherds brothers from the same litter. Mom chose this property hoping we all would have a great time. Boy, did we. We enjoyed the 25 mile per hour twisty road on the way in. Heads out the window smelling fresh mountain air. Oh my gawd, there's a creek right here and a bridge. Look at all that field to run around in off leash.nMom said we have to be aware of possible bears and may be other people around. She was right...there was a bear up the road in someone's trash. We stayed on leash mostly as we did have a neighbor one day with a small kid and friendly golden retriever. Fenced-in shaded dog run directly off the basement. Only about 4 ft high but we weren't interested in getting over it. We had a great time running up incline, down the stairs (provided for hoomans, cause they don't do inclines) and under the trees. Mom loved that she could open the basement door and shoo us outside while relaxing in the hot tub in the non fenced area. Also had a water hose at the back door so we had easy access to water and getting feet washed off before going inside. We had everything we needed inside. Food/water bowls, poop bags, fluffy towels, nice snuggle blanket, and comfortable couch. Dinner was provided by Dad who cooked a steak on the grill. We played on a secure wrap around porch while Dad grilled and Mom made salad in a nice kitchen. Bedtime was great - we slept in a crate downstairs. If you wanna have a dog gone good time...come here. Woof, woof from pup boys . . . We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this property - we would recommend. 5-star bedding - kitchen was well stocked."
"We are back for our second visit to Black Bear Cabin, one year later. Love the new furniture! A perfect location for lots of daytime fun with the family."
Great creek that you can hear from the porch!
"Great rental, highly recommend! Would come-back any time. Super dog friendly with a fully fenced yard. It was good to unplug. "
Thank you for a peaceful and relaxing stay!
Great times with son and daughter. I'm a contractor so i notice things. Home is nice and xlean was all we needed.
It was great clean and nice.
We had an awesome time this weekend! saw snow and 53 degrees. The beds were very comfortable. The dog pen is excellent! Cannot wait to come back!
Thank you for an amazing and comfortable stay! We had a blast and will definitely be back!
My family and dogs had an amazing stay! Lots of trim outside for the dogs to run.
We loved the cabin - was visiting family in Black Mountain but we stayed here with our two fur babies. They loved exploring outside and playing in the creek - house was perfect for us. Very clean - very nice linens.
We had an absolute wonderful time! We enjoyed exploring around the cabin and playing down at the creek. We ventured to Catawba Falls & visited the Biltmore. It was such a relaxing and refreshing visit. I am sure we will be back!
We enjoyed our stay! Lots of fun at the creek and at Catawba Falls. Went twice to Straight Away - Cute! Great food and atmosphere. We will be back!
We had a fantastic stay here. One of the best rentals we've had. Very clean and quiet. Some nice walks in the woods & fun at Straight Away Cafe. Thanks!
Set off a semi-private road with almost no traffic. Great for taking walks with the dogs. There is a huge pasture and a Creek directly across from the driveway with a waterfall a short walk a way. Absolute heaven for the pups !
"My wife and I spent our wedding anniversary in Black Mountain and stayed in Black Bear cabin. We decided to take our 12 year old German Shepard to share the experience. It was a bucket list for us and we had a wonderful time. Roc really enjoyed the river and the fields. If you come to stay at the Black Bear cabin, go visit the Straightaway Cafe right down the road. Great and fun place. We look forward to our next trip to Black Mountain"
"We had a wonderful stay at the cabin. It was extremely clean and just as advertised. The location was great and easy to access. There were places to eat and shop nearby. I would definitely recommend this spot to others. The hot tub was relaxing, and the fireplace provided a nice atmosphere. The deck was wonderful for outdoor meals, morning coffee and listening to the creek nearby."
"Very responsive to my message - battery dead for the gas fireplace on the main floor. And guy knew a quick solution. Great location, excellent condition."
"Housekeeping did a great job. Black Bear Cabin was very clean. Had all we needed for our stay right there in the cabin including utensils, dishes, pots, blender, coffee pot, blankets, etc. The fenced in yard is a bonus to those with pets even though we didn't have any pets. Loved the hot tub. Cabin was cute and comfortable and cozy. "
Everything was exceptional.
We really enjoyed the time we spent at Black Bear Cabin! We found it very clean and exceptionally comfortable. We liked how secluded it felt and the creek nearby provided a nice background sound. The town of Black Mountain was cute and we got some delicious ice cream there. We especially enjoyed hiking each day and going to Asheville for dinner in the evening. The Chihuli exhibit at Biltmore was incredible. Thanks for the free ticket! We've already decided to come back next summer and stay at Black Bear Cabin again. Thank you so much for the lovely vacation!
"We had a great stay at Black Bear Cabin. The setting is lovely and the size of the cabin was just right for our family. It is in a good location to find activities in the surrounding area: Chimney Rock, Linville Gorge, Smokey Mountains National Park, North Carolina Arboretum, to name a few. Rating this stay 5 Stars."
Spring is a bit late this year but we have had a great week with the kids here. We have really enjoyed the property and the area. We would definitely consider coming back again.
"Thank you for a great place to stay and see the wonders of North Carolina. We found lots of places to hike and explore, and felt cozy and safe when we came back to Black Bear Cabin! We especially enjoyed the sounds and sights of the broad sounds surrounding the woodland trails. Beautiful flowers! "
"We had a wonderful stay at Black Bear. It was peaceful and serene. The cabin was very clean. We loved the Mountain Pass and it's a wonderful, thoughtful perk for guest. We utilized it at the Biltmore House. The cabin overall was perfect in every way. Clean floors, easy check-in and check-out, amenities were all that we needed. The app was very helpful and an impressive feature that Carolina Mornings offered. I would absolutely stay with Carolina Mornings again. Thank you for a great vacation! "
"Every thing met our expectations. We loved the place, it was near the things we do in Black Mountain and we will return again some day! We will share all of our positive Black Bear Cabin experiences with friends."
"Overall, we were pleased & loved the dog-friendly atmosphere."
We loved your cabin and the area waterfalls. Thanks
We loved this cabin and the whole area!! The staff was wonderful and very helpful!! Thank you!
Kat was extremely nice and very helpful.
"Always pleased. Location was great, loved the stream & waterfall!"
"Wonderful stay. House was clean, well equipped, and super comfortable. "
"So blessed to have this time of relaxation. Awesome hiking and appreciating God's creation. I want to bottle the sound of the creek and play it again, Our dog pack (Sophie and Little Bit) loved their yard and had the time of their lives ""guarding"" on the upper deck. Thank you for sharing your home and warmth with us. We are inspired to own such a cabin one day. It is heaven on earth!"
"We had a wonderful mini-vacation here in Black Mountain! We spent our days going on adventures by hiking and whitewater rafting. After our long days, it was great to come back to the cabin and relax. It was the perfect getaway! Thanks so much!"
Very positive experience!
We had a great stay! Excellent!
We loved the cabin and the cleanliness! The part we loved the most was the fenced-in yard for the dogs! We will definitely be back. Thank you!
Fantastic operation; all around.
It was a fabulous experience in every way.
"We liked the area where it was located, weren't bothered, enjoyed the scenery of area and would stay again in that cabin or any nearby ones. We enjoyed the peace & quiet."
My stay was absolutely amazing!!!
"Black Bear Cabin was perfect! We were excited driving up to the cabin. The grounds are well kept and actually breathtaking. The inside of the cabin was also well kept and had everything we needed. It was clean, and very cozy, as if were our own home. The cabin is centrally located to all of our hiking trips. Making the reservations was very organized. My family really enjoyed the stay in the cabin, and the visit to North Carolina. We will definitely be planning another trip back, and would love to stay in the same cabin. THANK YOU!!!"
"We had such a lovely stay in this cabin! The hot tub was very relaxing and the surrounding scenery is beautiful! My family and I loved exploring the trail by the stream, visiting Biltmore Estate, and visiting downtown Asheville. It went by too fast. We are looking forward to coming back soon. Thanks so much, great time!"
Thanks for such an inviting Atmosphere. We had tons of fun on our girls weekend getaway. We are hoping to make this an annual outing and hoping Carolina Mornings will be our go-to business. Thanks for the hospitality!
Plan to return and bring our kids next time!
"Black Bear Cabin is so cute and cozy! We enjoyed spending our eight-year anniversary here. So many fun things to do in the are. We look forward to coming back to get more of our wish list checked off :) Great memories, for sure! "
"We spend our honeymoon here at Black Bear Cabin and had a wonderful time! We enjoyed the Biltmore and several attractions in downtown Asheville, but we really enjoyed the privacy and peacefulness of staying here in this cabin. It is a beautiful place, especially in the fall! we plan to come back to Asheville for anniversaries in the future "
"We had a perfect Thanksgiving here at the Black Bear Cabin! We hiked chimney rock, rode horses at Sandy Bottom and did some Black Friday shopping at the shops in Black Mountain. We will definitely come back! "
"We had so much fun on our trip! We explored downtown Asheville including one LaZoom bus, 5 Walnut Wine Bar, and the Bilmtore House. Beautiful Place. We cant wait to come back soon! "
We loved the cabin. it was nice and cozy and the perfect getaway for our weekend in Asheville. Thanks for having us.
"We had a relaxing time here. Loved walking around Black Mountain and Asheville. Ate at the veranda for lunc in BM and saw the Biltmore on Christmas. Ate at Tupelo Honey Cafe in Asheville. Enjoyed trying brews at Wicked Weed, Greenman, and Burial. "
We had a great time here! Enjoyed the hot tub! Asheville is the perfect romantic getaway. We recommend the Corner Kitchen for fantastic French cuisine. The Biltmore was an amazing experience. We will be back!
Thank you! Just what I needed. I loved it here. The mountains and creek were amazing. Drove into Asheville and enjoyed it. Thank you again.
Had such a blast relaxing in the hot tub and enjoying the beautiful mountain environment. Asheville was a great day trip (the Biltmore is a must see! Audio tour is great and don’t skip the gardens - in the spring I’m sure it’ll be even more amazing). We went to Tupelo Honey and it was amazing food (it’s a popular place so there might be a wait but it was worth it). Mainly this was just a wonderful reminder of how lovely our world really is.
"We loved the cabin! Great area, great atmosphere, perfect place to stay on our trip! "
"We loved Black Bear! So cozy, definitely a home away from home! My husband and I came here for our honeymoon. So romantic! We could stay in and watch a movie, explore the little creek, or drive into Asheville for exploring! This is the perfect cabin for being secluded yet close to everything! PS check out Louise’s for Black Mountain breakfast - Amazing! "
Overall it was a good experience!
Very organized and smooth process. Instructions for cabin were clear and direct. Easy stay!
"Wonderful experience, restful and fun."
Loved the hot tub and the location.
A nice property & enjoyable stay. Hot tub location convenient. Enclosed yard for dog a definite plus!
"What a wonderful retreat this place is! We thoroughly loved our time here especially reading and sipping coffee on the deck and relaxing in the hot tub at night. we ventured into Black Mountain and Asheville a few times, but it was so nice to come back here and relax! We will definitely be returning. "
"Thank you for letting us stay at the Black Bear Cabin. We had a great time and we enjoyed this beautiful, peaceful cabin. It was exactly what we were hoping for. "
"We had a great time exploring Asheville, Biltmore, and Black Mountain. had some great food and saw a lot of beautiful art! Our dog had a great time, we brought her everywhere! Also saw some great wildlife, butterflies, coyote, copperhead and a skink! Will def visit again! "
"My mother and I did the French Broad Zipline and had a blast! The staff was welcoming, informative and entertaining. Thomas and Sarah made our experience an enjoyable and memorable one. Will definitely zipline with them again and recommend them. "
"This cabin is amazing. We are here for our honeymoon and don’t want to leave. While here we enjoyed amazing food, downtown Asheville, Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. Thank you so much for everything. "
"Wonderful relaxing! Loved the stream and the deck! Great location, hiked everyday! Our dog, Woods, loved it! Thank you so much, very special place! "
The house was beautiful and the creek was fun to play in with our dogs. There was plenty to do and it was the best cabin we’ve ever stayed in!!
"It was a perfect home away from home! We came to find spring after a long winter in Michigan - It was great to feel the spring air, hear the river, travel to Asheville (Biltmore is worth the day visit), Chimney Rock, lake Lure, and Hendersonville. Black Bear Cabin was great for our 5 and 7 year olds - plenty of exploring. Thanks for the cabin!!"
"Thank you for everything. Cabin is fantastic! Our family loved it here and will be back, for sure! "
Had a great time on our 35th anniversary. The cabin was cozy and the scenery was breathtaking. Saw deer playing in the meadow and went to the Biltmore Estate. Thanks and we will be back.
"My wife and I loved the cabin, we’ve stayed at several different cabins in NC and none have been more fun than this one. The creek is amazing and woke up every morning to different animal tracks! Also did the “Sandy Bottom Trails” horseback ride and it was breathtaking. Will definitely be back in the summer. Thanks CM! "
Black Bear cabin was very nice. I loved the kitchen and fenced in yard for our family pet.
We had a wonderful stay! The staff at Carolina Mornings went above and beyond and were always courteous and friendly. The level of customer service made you feel as if your stay was extremely important to the staff as well as the daily emails to ensure you are having a good time. The local box of goodies was an unexpected surprise and a nice touch. Our stay felt as if we have VIP service and yet we never saw anyone from the Carolina Mornings office. To accomplish that task is a quality you should be extremely proud of.
"Our stay, and the cabin itself, were both great. We found customer service to be excellent from the onset of our reservation request. Thanks for everything!"
We loved staying at the cabin. It allowed me and my wife to really re-connect and it made us close again. Thank you Carolina Mornings!
Black Bear Cabin was lovely and very much enjoyed by each of us.
"The cabin was absolutely perfect (clean, quiet, and comfortable) and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit."
"It was the most relaxing stay and really took our mind off of any stresses going on back home. We felt like we were in a very solitary place and needed nothing else but the cabin and surroundings to enjoy our wonderful weekend. The cabin was perfectly equipped, and even had cookie cutters! :) The reservation process was a breeze as well and the woman who handles our reservation/payment was named Stephanie, and extremely friendly and helpful. Overall it was a wonderful stay and we can't wait to go again! Thank you so much! :)"
