Description from manager

Whether you’re looking for a memorable family retreat or romantic getaway, this one-level, 3-bedroom, 2-bath log cabin is where you'll want to stay. Dancing Bears Cabin is located in beautiful Gateway Mountain, a 3,000-acre hardwood forest, nature preserve and wildlife sanctuary. Enjoy majestic, layered Blue Ridge Mountain views from the deck and toast marshmallows in the outdoor fire pit. Gaze at a peaceful night sky full of stars and constellations. Cook -- or don't cook -- in a modern kitchen. Curl up on a comfy sofa and enjoy a crackling fire. Dancing Bears Cabin features WiFi, 2 high-definition TVs connected to Direct TV (150+ channels), a king-size bed, queen-size bed and 3 bunk beds (6 twin-size beds). Enjoy breathtaking Blue Ridge views and serenity without needing to drive far up a mountain.

Convenient to everything, but feels a million miles away, this is the perfect cabin for enjoying nature and recharging. Gateway Mountain’s amenities include a private lake for swimming, a trout pond for catch-and-release fishing (no license required), hiking trails and a waterfall park. Explore quirky shops, local breweries, and incredible restaurants in downtown Black Mountain and Marion, just 25 minutes from the cabin. Drive 40 minutes west into Asheville for delicious restaurants, shopping, and entertainment or 40 minutes south to Chimney Rock and Lake Lure for hiking, big-lake swimming, boating, and water sports.

House Layout:

Living room with high ceilings, wood burning fireplace, and TV; dining area with seating for 8; full kitchen with dishwasher and coffee maker (standard coffee maker) included; master bedroom with king bed, views, access to back deck, and en suite bath with a walk-in shower only; bedroom with queen bed and 1 set of bunk beds; bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds and TV; full hall bath with shower/tub combo; laundry room with washer and dryer.

Outdoors- large back deck with long range views; outdoor patio with table and seating for 6, charcoal grill, and outdoor fire pit.

Please note: Because we're in the mountains, Wi-Fi is offered via satellite. Although it's fast and perfect for checking emails, Facebook (social media), and surfing the web, please do not stream movies or music or engage in high-bandwidth activities (playing Internet-based games). Doing so will cause Internet connectivity to slow to a crawl. Instead, DirecTV offers many music channels for your listening pleasure and 150 TV channels. Also, the driveway is steep, but it's paved, and there is plenty of parking at the cabin.

During the colder winter months, icy and/or snowy road conditions and delayed snow plow operations are possible within the development. From December through March, please come prepared with AWD or 4WD vehicles. We also recommend travel insurance for those staying in the Gateway Mountain development during the winter months. Due to allergies, no smoking and no pets, please.

Additional amenities: Carbon monoxide detector, Clean with disinfectant, Coffee Maker, Cookware, Creek/Lake, Dining, Dishes & Utensils, Enhanced cleaning practices, Fire extinguisher, Full Kitchen, Heating, High touch surfaces cleaned with disinfectant, King size bed, Log/Timber Cabin, Nearby Grocery, No-contact check-in and check-out, Outdoor Firepit, Pantry Items, Pets Not Allowed, Private, Secluded, Smoke detectors, View, autumn foliage, children welcome, forests, king, non smoking only, pets not allowed, queen, twin/ single
