Dreams really do come true at Sleepy Bear! Take in idyllic valley views from the covered front porch of this three-story cabin with top-choice amenities including a jetted tub, hot tub, sauna, and a loaded recreation room.

Sleepy Bear embodies the grandeur of a mountain lodge with a massive stone hearth that anchors the soaring ceilings and open living floor plan. Drift off into a daydream on the over-sized couch by the warm fire! At suppertime, enjoy the company of your guests as you share home-cooked meals around the eight-seat dining table. The fully equipped kitchen charms with inspiring touches such as family-friendly island seating and an old fashioned cook stove (non-operable).

We had a great stay at the Sleepy Bear.
Hello! We had a great stay at the Sleepy Bear. Great location and accommodations. The property is so peaceful with beautiful grounds and foliage to enjoy while sipping coffee in the morning and wine in the evening from the wrap-around porch. We even saw turkey, deer, and chipmunks! The home was very clean and beautiful. The location is perfect for the town of Burnsville and an easy drive to Asheville. A few things I need to mention - the rugs could be secured to the floor as these are a tripping hazard. We had a couple of close calls before I pulled most of them up to prevent any falls. We requested a late checkout and were very grateful this was granted to us - however, a $75 fee for 2 additional hours is excessive and feels a little petty for what was already paid. Finally, we tried to turn the sauna on and there was no power to it. We didn’t want to mess with it further to determine the issue but this was a bit disappointing to a few of us. Overall this is a great cabin.

Our family of five had a great time at Sleepy Bear!
Our family of five had a great time at Sleepy Bear! We were able to relax and rejuvenate during our spring break. The cabin is convenient to town and has tons of outdoor activities. We went hiking and spent some time in Asheville shopping and visiting local attractions. We loved the hot tub, fireplace, and game room and used them daily. The views all around the cabin are breathtaking!

The property was indeed very clean and well-maintained!
Our recent stay at Carolina Mornings was a family holiday experience, and we had the pleasure of dealing with an incredibly responsive, friendly, and kind team. The staff at Carolina Mornings went above and beyond to address all of our concerns and requests promptly, which made our stay all the more enjoyable. Carolina Mornings is undoubtedly a wonderful and attentive host, and their dedication to ensuring a comfortable stay is commendable. As described in the listing, the property was indeed very clean and well-maintained, which we appreciated.

My favorite part of the property, besides the wildlife, was the 2nd living room and TV upstairs.

Large covered front porch with comfortable seating and a fabulous view.
Large covered front porch with comfortable seating and a fabulous view. Great kitchen for family meals and cozy fireplace. The game room is a hit with everyone, and so many separate spaces to have quiet time and seclusion if needed. It great parking area, and a quiet location with no 4-wheel drive needed.

Family Paradise
Sleepy Bear Cabin is truly paradise. A perfect retreat for our family of adults, and for our toddler grandson and infant granddaughter. Quiet beauty surrounded us as the majestic mountains rose in front , to be enjoyed by the comfortable covered porch, plenty of space to run around with an active toddler, as well as a hot tub and sauna to relax in if so desired. Plenty of parking, close to Asheville which we love, and convenient to Burnsville should you need supplies. The house was above our expectations in cleanliness, as well as providing so many spaces for privacy for each family. Three comfy living rooms, pool table, dart board, and a large, spacious, open kitchen where we enjoyed conversations and laughter while we all cooked. Bedrooms we very comfortable and large, and we loved having 3 full bathrooms, one for each family. We loved Sleepy Bear which gave us the opportunity to disconnect and simply enjoy time with each other since that is rare living in NY, NC, and GA. We would definitely rent again and thank you to Carolina Mornings for incredible communications and ease of booking. The Ianzito Family
