My favorite part of the property, besides the wildlife, was the 2nd living room and TV upstairs. It gave me some time to myself after hanging out with family all day.
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.
Impressive very nice home. Clean and neat. Adequately furnished. The bedrooms are good size. Very private and peaceful. The bathrooms are clean and adequate. Good beds.
We are in town visiting family. This is the perfect spot to unwind and hang out. My kiddos loved it! Beautiful inside and out.
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

We live on the coast in Florida and love coming to the Blue Ridge Mountains it is truly God's Country."
Loved the cabin. Thanks for sharing it with our family!
This place is absolutely beautiful. The decor is lovely and the kids/adults enjoyed the pool table. We made our way to Asheville and enjoyed the Biltmore and downtown Asheville. The whitewater rafting at French Broad Adventures was the perfect seal to our adventure.
