Located in a quiet mountain neighborhood, 1 mile from Lake Tomahawk (walking trail), 2 miles to Montreat College (hiking), and 2 miles to downtown and I-40, this charming cabin is convenient to town yet far enough out to get that mountain feel. Rocking chairs on the deck are perfect for morning coffee, a midday snooze, or late afternoon conversation - all under a canopy of mature hardwoods. The cabin has a wood burning stove as well as baseboard heat to keep you toasty. And very kid friendly!

The space
Enjoy the large living room with vaulted ceilings, sky lights and a working wood stove. The kitchen is fully equipped including a refrigerator, stove and oven, all full size, plus a microwave, toaster and coffee maker. Small but functional dining room has access to the wrap around deck. 2nd bedroom has a futon which opens to a double size bed. Full tub and shower. Washer and dryer are included for your convenience. Towels and bedding are provided. There is also a playhouse for the kids within sight of the front porch. There are two window unit AC's for those rare hot days, however the hardwood tree canopy keeps the cabin shaded all day, and the ceiling fans in every room keep the indoors very comfortable even in the summer months.

During your stay, please enjoy "The Little Bear Trail", a 1/4 mile loop hiking trail through the woods around our property. Included is a scavenger hunt for kids and adults. Hunt for such features along the trail as "The Tin Man", "The Laughing Bear", and "The Giant Acorn"! Tree and plant identification signs are also featured. The trail begins and ends at the cabin.

Guest access
You will be renting the entire cabin, so make yourself at home. The parking area has room for 2 vehicles and is convenient to the front porch. Please feel free to wander and enjoy the grounds around the cabin!

Black Mountain, North Carolina, United States

The cabin is located in a quiet mountain neighborhood. There are neighbors nearby, so we welcome the same respect and courtesy for them from our guests as our neighbors provide to us. The cabin was built in the 1940's and has been updated through the years. It is comfortable, but don't expect a Ritz-Carlton type atmosphere.
