We invite you to come and stay at Asheville's only 'COZY BEAR COTTAGE' - A Beary Nice Place

Our 'Cozy Bear Cottage' will provide you with a very comfortable and serene place to stay during your visit to Asheville and the surrounding area. Our cottage is located in East Asheville and it is only a ten-minute drive to downtown Asheville. You will have easy and quick access to I-40, I-240, and I-26 which provides the ability to quickly get to places such as the Biltmore Estate, Black Mountain, Grove Park Inn, as well as music venues, restaurants and shops in downtown Asheville. The cottage is located on a well-maintained private road in a very quiet and safe setting. Access to the Blue Ridge Parkway is 2.5 miles away and from there it’s a short drive to either Mount Pisgah to the south or Mount Mitchell to the north. (check out the Folk Art Center just as you get onto the Blue Ridge Parkway) Drive to Chimney Rock and take in the tremendous views from on top and then go to Lake Lure and enjoy a very nice guided-tour on a pontoon boat. Check out Navitat Canopy Adventures in Barnardsville, NC to experience a unique and fantastic zip lining experience (zip and walk through the treetops in the day or night time).

The cottage has three roomy bedrooms, two full baths, a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable living room with a 37” HDTV, large and wide wrap around deck, premium hot tub with built-in sound system, fire pit, and a newly install six foot wooden fence along the side and rear of property. Please refer to the photos that have been provided to give you more details about the cottage as well.

Our family has found that traveling to Asheville will provide you with an almost overwhelming amount of things to do and see. In addition to the places mentioned above our cottage is just minutes away from first class golfing, art museums, various hiking and biking trails, white water rafting in the French Broad River in the spring and summer months and in the winter months go snow skiing and snowboarding at either Cataloochee Ski Resort in Maggie Valley, NC or Wolf Ridge Ski Resort in Mars Hill, NC. Lake James is close by for your enjoyment as well.

Downtown Asheville is a great place to spend some time and you will experience wonderful dining, music, and shopping. Some of our favorite places to eat are Sunny Point, Early Girl Eatery, Over Easy Café, French Broad Chocolate Lounge, Laughing Seed, Tupelo Honey, Bouchon French Bistro, Vinnie's Italian Restaurant, Heiwa Shokudo Japanese Restaurant, Olive or Twist, and many, many other fine restaurants. Enjoy a fun night out for a wide variety of music playing at the Orange Peel or Civic Center. Usually on Friday nights there will be a drum circle gathering that just happens along with numerous performances on the street corners. Another interesting place is the Sky Bar where you can view the surrounding city and mountains and watch a beautiful sunset from a unique outside venue. In the spring and summer enjoy a baseball game at the historic McCormick Field. There are also numerous seasonal festivals to attend. From the large to small shops in the downtown area all are very unique and and provide an almost endless array of selections. Fun and memorable times can be had by all and your days and nights will seem to pass quickly so please plan your mountain adventure carefully so you can take advantage of all that Asheville and the surrounding area have to offer.

We sincerely hope that you will come and enjoy a trip to Asheville and make our 'Cozy Bear Cottage' a relaxing and comfortable part of it all. Just send us an email inquiry or give us a call at 352-538-5645 and we will be glad to assist you.

About the Owner

We are originally from North Carolina and for the past seventeen years have enjoyed living and raising our children in North Central Florida. Traveling to the North Carolina mountains and especially the Asheville area has always been an enjoyable and adventuresome experience. The beauty, serenity, and peacefulness of the area is the alluring factor. There just seems to always be something new and interesting to see and experience because of the seasonal changes in the climate. Chefs from all over the world have opened resturants in Asheville and have produced an extraordinary variety of excellent dining options for us to enjoy as well. We have two dogs (Husky and American Eskimo) that enjoy our trips to the mountains as well to hike and enjoy the wonderful mountain weather. We like calling Carolina home and so might you.

My family and I loved the cottage - it was so convenient to everything Asheville! Everything we needed for a week's stay was there - we brought in food and did not need another thing. We loved the décor, the comfy beds, 2 bathrooms, the great wrap-around porch, and the fireplace. The cottage's kitchen was fully equipped and the floor plan was perfect. If we can manage it, we will rent again and again! Thank You

Best Rental Ever!

Four of us stayed in Cozy Bear Cottage for four days. The cottage is about 10 minutes from the city of Asheville, 15 minutes from Black Mountain and about 20 minutes from the NC Arborateum. It would easily sleep three couples or 10 people using the sleeper couch and the bunk beds. It is FULLY equipped-even has a slow cooker and a milk shake maker! Just bring special spices and you are all set. It is set up on a mountain road that is easily accessible from the Tunnel Road (NC 70) and has a wraparound porch, a hot tub and a grill. The view in the morning across the mountains is splendid but the run up the mountain is gruelling-us flatlanders are not used to these kind of grades-but the view once you get there is fantastic. I would recommend that if you are visiting Asheville and want to be a little bit away from the city this is definitely the place to use. Great owners, great service!!!

This cottage was the cutest cottage! It felt so cozy and homey. The kitchen was well beyond equipped and had everything that you might need for your stay. We comfortably fit six people and there was room for more. The hot tub was an amazing addition ad porch offered heaps of seating. We used it morning and night! There cottage was decorated with lots of bear-aphernalia and we loved finding news ones every day. It was so cute! It isn't right in town, but we had a car and it was the perfect place for us. I think we will return!

A great place for a larger group. Good location for exploring Asheville. We loved the hot tub and firepit! Kitchen has everything you would need to cook a large dinner. We mostly ate out though. Recommend "12 Bones" ever!

We recently stayed at Tony and Rose's cottage and had a great time! They have put so much thought into furnishing the cottage - beds are comfortable, the kitchen has everything you need to make complete meals, and they have put together a notebook about the cottage that gives you all the information you need to plan day trips, find good restaurants and grocery stores, and access all the amenities of the house. They also have 3 baskets of maps and information on Biltmore House, Asheville, and many other local attractions. Tony was very prompt in responding to e-mail and telephone requests from us. We hope to return again someday! Highly recommend the Cozy Bear Cottage!

Fantastic vacation rental for 2 or 10!

  • 5 of 5
Loved this house! Perfect for our annual mother/daughter getaway. It was clean & cute and had everything we could have wanted and more. Even a grocery store loyalty card! lol. Plenty of options here too. Wanna get in the hot tub--yep. How about we rock on the porch.... Oh it's starting to rain.... Scoot in under the roof. Neighborhood is quiet, just birds and the occasional train (which we looked forward to). We found it to be a great home base for our Asheville vacation. It's a few minutes outside of the hustle & bustle and we like that. I can't really think of anything to ask the owners to add. This is a great rental!

From the Owner

Asheville, NC has been called the 'Paris of the South' and is an interesting place to visit to experience a wide variety of cusines, music, shopping, hiking, biking and just to enjoy the mountain life.

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended

Close to major highways (I-40, I-240, & I-26), however feels rual in a beautiful mountain setting, does not require long difficult driving and is on a private paved road. Close to grocery stores and can drive to downtown Asheville in ten minutes and the town of Black Mountain in fifteen minutes. There are lots of wonderful local food resturants and both towns. Close to area hiking and short drive away is Wolf Laurel ski resort, white water rafting and zip lining at Navitat Canopy Adventures.
