“Gorgeous log cabin, plenty of room for the whole family!!”
Reviewed 30 September 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We took a family long weekend at the Black Bear Cabin, it's a gorgeous, new and we had so much room for everyone. The view was beautiful, so much nature to enjoy. I highly recommend this cabin, it's rustic with all the conveniences!
One thing, no cell service for AT&T at the time we were there.

So glad you enjoyed the stay at Blue Bear Cabin! Some cell service providers can be spotty in the mountains. Verizon tends to get the best coverage. Thanks again!

“Terrific House!”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This cabin was wonderful. My husband and I stayed four days and wished we could have booked a longer stay. The house is cozy, very nicely decorated and the views from the back deck are amazing!! The beds were very comfortable. The drive down to the little town is a bit challenging as the roads are curvy, but that's part of the mountain charm!

Liked best: The views from the house - amazing. And the privacy.
Liked least: Could have used ceiling fans on the back deck, but it has been a warm summer.

“Renter Beware of abusive business practices”
Reviewed 11 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014
1
person found this review helpful

If you book and your plans change you will lose your deposit due to the abusive business practices of this property owner and their rental agency, Greybeard Realty. During March 2014, we booked a one week rental for late July. In April we canceled since our family reunion plans changed and were assured by Greybeard that they could re-rent the property and that we could reschedule for another date. These statements proved to be false. They rented part of the first weekend and last but effectively made the Monday-Friday period unrentable. For months I have been trying to find a compromise or negotiate credit for another time. We have lost over $600 in prepaid deposits and a great deal of time spanning from April to September trying to find a solution. We’re screwed. So, please be careful in selecting a rental agency or property. I would strongly advise against renting from either Blue Bear Cabin or Greybeard Realty. Sadly, when I book for our large extended-family reunion in 2016 it won’t be in North Carolina.

I'm sorry for the trouble this has caused you. As discussed in a previous phone call and in emails with our accounting team, our cancellation policy (listed on your signed lease and website FAQs) notes that we make every effort to re-rent a property when a reservation is cancelled with the goal of returning the pre-payment to the customer, but in the case that it doesn't re-rent, the customer is responsible for the pre- payment. Unfortunately, we did everything we could to re-rent the cabin after your March booking was cancelled in May, but it did not re-rent which caused an extra vacancy during the summer for the owner.

Thank you,
Greybeard Rentals
