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.

Comfortable and cozy with everything you need!

  • 4 of 5
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.

Great catch at Fishing Bear Cabin

  • 5 of 5
Our arrival at night did not give us much chance to enjoy the outside of the cabin, but after our trip up Cherry Mt. we were glad to find that the cabin was even better than we had hoped. For such a reasonable cost, the cabin was perfect. We lit the gas fireplace right away and it warmed the living and upstairs area perfectly. All of the bedrooms had TVs which made everyone happy..although we did not use them much. Just too much to see and do. Apple festivaling and train rides were great, but we took one day just to stay close and enjoy the cabin and surrounding area. The view was perfect for Fall, the walks invigorating, neighbors were friendly and everyone had a dog or two. Ralph was able to golf every day and said the course was perfect. Finding the chapel in the woods made our exploring even better. A fully equipped kitchen with everything we needed was convenient and we did not have to go out for every meal. The rustic decor was great, beds were comfortable, lots of closets and storage space. Two porches with picnic tables to enjoy the fantastic view made this a perfect escape to the mountains. The hot tub was available, but the nights were a little cool for us to try it..maybe next time, and we definitely want a next time and soon. The pool table downstairs and games would have been great for a rainy afternoon, but the weather so perfect we just didn't have to time to enjoy all the amenities.

Quite a Deal

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was absolutely breathtaking -- and so well stocked, the owners have thought of everything. There was something to look at in every corner. A great cabin to come back to after enjoying the area, or a great cabin to lock yourself away in.

We went white water rating at Eagle Creek, and we had a terrific guide -- TJ -- we'll definitely ask for him again next time as well. The apple orchards had the most amazing fresh apple cider and other goodies that were irresistible.

Someone mentioned that their water wasn't hot -- that wasn't our experience -- sure it took a minute or two for the water to get through the pipes, but it was plenty hot.

The GPS got us to the right road, but does not understand the actual location of the cabin. If you're from "the city" and aren't used to rural areas -- just be sure to take the map that the owners provide, or be sure you have the street number (there's a sign in front of the cabin with the street number and cabin name on it). The road to the cabin is curvy and in some spots really only wide enough for one car -- so just take it slow and enjoy the beautiful view along the way.

We had a visitor from Switzerland with us and she enjoyed every minute.

Well worth every penny (or more), and we hope to return!

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.
