About the Owner

We have loved the mountains and decided to buy in the Blue Ridge area because of all it has to offer - easy access, shops, hiking, tubing, rafting, antiquing, vineyards and wine tastings, festivals and so much more.

thank you!

We had a wonderful time! A couple things that I look for when booking a mountain cabin are a good hot tub and if my car can easily get to it. The hot tub here was the best I've been in. It had more than enough room for 6 people. And I drive a sedan which had no trouble on the road to the cabin or the driveway. The road into the neighborhood is paved except for the last 50 or so feet. It isn't steep and neither is the driveway. We had no trouble at all. Jeanne was wonderful to deal with. I had several questions that she answered quickly. We had to modify our reservation to include more people and she made it so easy. Thank you for everything!

Suggestion for what to do in the area: Fall Branch Falls. Very close to the cabin. There is about 3 miles of gravel road to go down but we had no trouble. The hike to the top is pretty easy. There was almost no one there. You can get in the water.

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately the fireplace is operational only during the cooler months - October through March as noted on the rental site. We do have management relight the pilot light if requested in advance. Thanks for the heads up on the hot tub filter - we'll make sure our cleaning people get that taken care of. We appreciate any suggestions and work hard to meet our guests needs. Thank you for choosing Fishing Bear for your weekend getaway.

We had a lovely visit to Blue Ridge. We enjoyed the town which was a short drive away. The hot tub was a relaxing stop each evening and one night we even got snow flurries! The cabin was comfortable and everything you could need was provided. We walked around the area, read books in front of the fire and enjoyed the porches.

This is our first time using this website to rent a cabin. Jeanne was a joy and a pleasure to work with. The drive to the cabin was scenic and peaceful. Once we arrived at the cabin we both were pleased to see the cabin EXCEEDED our expectations. Up stairs there is two beautiful bedrooms, a fully stock kitchen, with plates, cookware, and even condiments "ketch up, salad dressing, spices etc " down stares there is a game area and a TV area with a ton a movies. The bedroom on the bottom floor is perfect!!!! On the upper and lower decks there is a swing facing beautiful views. My favorite of all was the hottub and grill. There's something about being under the stars in nature and in a beautiful hottub. All of this at a reasonable price. Thank you again! We will Def come and visit again.

From the Owner

We fell in love with the cozy, comfort of this cabin. It is very easy to get to with a four lane highway right up to the turn to go up the mountain. Once you leave the highway it is like being in another world - quiet, peaceful. We have tried to make our cabin a home away from home and provide all the comforts of home.
