Description Description
If you're coming to the mountains to hit the slopes, Black Bear Lodge is perfect for you! Being the closest cabin to the slopes, your front door is less than 100 feet from the "Viewfinder" run. Park your car at the cabin and ski-in/ski-out for your entire stay. Plus, you can watch all the action from a custom-built balcony off the main bedroom that looks out over the ski slopes.

This newly renovated, four-level cabin has tons of living space and plenty of sweet surprises like the Coca-Cola bar! The main level of Black Bear Lodge features a beautifully furnished open living and dining area with a stone gas fireplace and a 32” flat screen HDTV, the perfect setting for spending quality time with friends and family. The dining room comfortably seats eight and the well-appointed kitchen features granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Down one level you'll find an awesome treat in the old-fashioned Coca-Cola bar where your group will enjoy playing up this party theme. The lowest level of Black Bear Lodge offers the most relaxing setting yet, where you'll enjoy a game of pool, sit back on the wrap-around leather couch, and watch a movie on the huge 60” flat screen HDTV, all by the warming glow of a second stone fireplace.

The sprawling upper level Main Suite features an in-room Jacuzzi tub, a comfy rocker for watching TV, and a quaint corner fireplace. The Main Suite even has a private deck overlooking the slopes! An easily accessible main-level Main bedroom has a 30” HDTV, and the lower level third bedroom features unique full-over-full log bunk beds. Enjoy a soak in the four-person hot tub on the private lower deck. One of Scenic Wolf's most desirable log cabins, Black Bear Lodge gives guests year-round breathtaking panoramic views of the ski slopes and the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

Clean and Relaxing
Thanks for a wonderful place. The cabin was beautiful everything was nice and clean as the website showed. I and my family enjoyed the 4 days we stayed here. We will definitely return to Carolina Mornings Cabins. You guys deserve all 5 stars, and the representation is awesome. She really helped me pick the right cabin. I love the views and the quiet area. It was so relaxing.

We had a wonderful time social distancing in this cabin! (Covid-19) Plenty to do to stay busy and plenty of space for my family of 5. It was a great cabin. Big plus was the master loft bed was extra comfy!
Alisa L from Greenacres, FL - Posted: 5/12/2020
"Fluffier pillows. Everything else was just outstanding. We came in during an ice storm. Opened the door to a warm, clean beautiful cabin. Lights were on and the hot tub was already heated up. Great job, CM"
Andrew W from Plano, TX - Posted: 3/9/2020
"Wonderful vacation spot! All the supplemental info from Carolina Mornings was spot on (if you rent, pay attention to their driving directions - gps will try to take you the wrong way)."
Chad T from Knoxville, TN - Posted: 1/13/2020
"We had a wonderful stay! This house had plenty of room. There were a couple of maintenance issues at the beginning and end of our stay, and they were very prompt in their replies. The views here are spectacular and so close to the slopes, plenty of snow was made. We made wonderful memories ringing in the New Year and celebrating my 16 year old's birthday. Thank you. "
The H from Winter Garden, FL - Posted: 1/13/2020
"This cabin had fantastic long range mountain views, was very clean, entertaining, and had the true cabin feel."
Brett H from Mooresville, NC - Posted: 12/4/2019
"We had a wonderful stay! We came with motorcycle and a slingshot and rode all over these Beautiful Mountains. What a view from this house. We are from Florida, Ohio, and Chicago and don't get to see that every day! Great cabin, very comfortable and clean. Porches had unbeatable views of sunset and mountains. Hot tub and pool table were a lot of fun and the couches were comfy, great place to relax off the beaten path."
Chris M from Orlando, FL - Posted: 10/4/2019
"We came for a couples retreat. This cabin and the scene were breathtaking. Must do: watch the sunset from hot tub. Don't: Run a lot of water at the same time because you will run out & patiently wait for it to come back on LOL Something about a backflow issue. Enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back. God bless. Philippians 4:13, 1 Corinthians 10:31."
June L from Knightdale, NC - Posted: 5/7/2019
"This is our second time staying in the cabin and we love it. Such great memories having our Christmas here, plus a birthday and an anniversary. We love the skiing, snow tubing and spending time with the family. Board game nights are the best. Can't wait to come back"
Erica from Orlando, FL - Posted: 4/5/2019
"Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality! We absolutely loved the cabin and the view is breathtaking. We all really enjoyed the pool table and hot tub, and my daughter loved the super cool bunk beds downstairs. The hill coming up to the cabin is definitely steep but our car had no problems with it. During our time here we drove some of the Blue Ridge Parkway, did some hiking, and toured the Biltmore Estate. All three were wonderful. Asheville is a great city and being high on this mountain is so wonderful! My family really enjoyed this much needed time to relax!"
David J from Atlanta, GA - Posted: 4/5/2019
"Would absolutely stay in this house again, perfect spot to escape - but close enough to Asheville to enjoy the dining amenities"
Jeff B from Apex, NC - Posted: 1/24/2019
"This is a lovely spacious home with wonderful views of the mountains. There is plenty of room and could accommodate a large crowd comfortably. Everything was in top working condition. It's very warm and inviting. The beds were extremely comfortable and provided a great night's sleep. You are literally on top of a mountain so its a steep drive to the home but if taken slow, is no problem at all. This home is a stone's throw from the ski lift and a short drive into town. It is very well maintained. We had no problems with WiFi signals during our stay. We enjoyed the fireplaces, grill, and pool table while we were there. It's absolutely the nicest home we've ever rented. We'll definitely be back!"
Pamela from Findlay, OH - Posted: 11/7/2018
Awesome cabin having a great time!
Brenda from Ravenswood, - Posted: 9/20/2018
"Beautiful views, ample space for the whole family, and cooler temperatures in the mountains made for a wonderful vacation! The hot tub was great at the end of the day! Wish there had been more deck/outdoor seating, but overall this was a great property!! Would love to come back in the fall to see the colors!"
Kathy B from High Point, NC - Posted: 7/12/2018
"While we didn't expect it to be snowing in March, once we entered the cabin every anxiety melted away. Black Bear Lodge went beyond our wildest dreams and expectations, we can't wait to come back! We loved hiking the ski runs around our cabin. Exploring the closed ski resort was a lot of fun. We also ventured into downtown Asheville two days, and absolutely loved eating at Mayfels and Tupelo Honey. Everything was sparkling clean. Kat did a wonderful job! We were very impressed."
Annalise D - Posted: 3/14/2018
My family thoroughly enjoyed the experience we are planning our next trip already!!!
Sheneke G - Posted: 2/27/2018

Angela & - Posted: 11/26/2017
Thank you so much for a lovely honeymoon. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will be planning a full family trip very soon! Biltmore was as lovely as we had hoped and can't wait to return. The master bedroom is so comfortable and I found myself laying there all day! May God bless your lives and praise your hospitality.
Angelica C - Posted: 11/26/2017
"We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves during our stay at this cabin! We cannot even begin to express how amazing it was to see a beautiful sunset every single day. At night we were able to enjoy the views of thousands of stars! We even braved the hot tub on a cooler evening and really enjoyed it. We don't get to make trips like these very often, but you can bet that the next time we visit, we will be staying in one of your beautiful cabins!! Thank you for a magnificent location! God Bless!"
Carol B - Posted: 11/26/2017
Friendship isn't about who you've known the longest. It's about who came and never left your side. We really enjoyed our stay with family and friends. A vacation much needed but most of all memories made and new traditions. The cabin stay was excellent with an amazing view. The cabin was beautiful and coze. Thank you for this wonderful experience.

The cabin was so neat and clean. Our kids were in awe and the view was spectacular! This has been a relaxing family vacation! The amenity package for ziplining, rafting and the Biltmore was a definite perk as well! We will be back! "

Deborah E - Posted: 5/18/2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Black Bear Lodge at Scenic Wolf! It was just what we had hoped it would be. Next time we will shoot for a visit when the trees have leaves and the flowers are blooming! How beautiful that would be!
Joseph V - Posted: 3/21/2016
"Wow! This is the best cabin we have ever stayed in! Our entire group absolutely loved it here! The beautiful view when we wake up is breathtaking! This trip is a family trip, one that has a lot of meaning for us. The main reason we are here is for the night race at Bristol Motor Speedway but it holds a way different meaning for some of us. It is a very tender day, the anniversary of my momma's death. We thank you for this beautiful place where we could come and enjoy a very relaxing weekend! We would love to come again in the future and maybe bring a few more family members. We plan to try to make this happen. Thank you again."
Shelly & - Posted: 11/11/2015
"Thank you for sharing your beautiful mountain home with us! We visited the Biltmore Estate, explored downtown Asheville, and drove a section of the Blue Ridge Parkway. We also enjoyed some relaxing family time in the cabin! Now on to Raleigh for a family wedding! "

Thank you fro a wonderful vacation. The cabin was beautiful and a welcome retreat from the daily grind. We enjoyed the hot tub especially after 2 trips to the Biltmore and waterfall hikes. We had a great time!
Jessica L - Posted: 8/26/2015
Your cabin home served as the perfect getaway for us! We traveled from Florida and just needed a change of environment. The view here is just brilliant! We look forward to revisiting with friends and family. Thank you for opening your home to us.
Carolyn V - Posted: 8/26/2015
"We had a wonderful time at your cabin! It is really beautiful! We were able to enjoy 3 season while we were here. The fall colors were beautiful with a temp around 55F then temps rose to the high 70s and for our last night here, it snowed! Our son was super excited! we visited he Biltmore and downtown Asheville. My daughter shopped at Urban Outfitters and my husband and I ate at the Lobster Trap! We cooked a lot at the cabin and put 2 puzzles together. we spent a lot of family time together. We spent a lot of family time together, which I really enjoyed. We will be back. Thank you! "
Starr S - Posted: 8/26/2015

Alice F - Posted: 3/27/2014
"We really enjoyed staying here at Black Bear Cabin. We were so lucky to get loads of snow right before/after we arrived. So we were able to ski in/ski out which was fabulous. The slopes were crowded because of the great snow and the weekend. So, it was kind of an ""obstacle course"" skiing. Still, it was very enjoyable. It was so nice to come back to a big house, fire and hot tub every afternoon. I did a lot of cooking and we really enjoyed our family time here. Thanks and we'll be back. "
Lela A - Posted: 3/27/2014
"When we arrived on Thursday October 24th from Florida, it was snowing!!! We knew then that our stay was going to be special and it was! We could not have picked better accommodations. We have 2-teenage boys and they loved the downstairs ""man-cave"". The cabin is perfect! We will be coming back again and will stay at Black Bear. Thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin with us! "
Teresa F - Posted: 3/27/2014

Thank you for taking such nice care of this house, I greatly appreciate the cleanliness! We would recommend this cabin and area to everyone we know! "
