Located in a quiet mountain neighborhood, 1 mile from Lake Tomahawk (walking trail), 2 miles to Montreat College (hiking), and 2 miles to downtown and I-40, this charming cabin is convenient to town yet far enough out to get that mountain feel. Four rockers on the wraparound front deck are perfect for morning coffee, a midday snooze, or late afternoon conversation - all under a lovely canopy of mature hardwoods. The cabin has a wood burning stove as well as baseboard heat to keep you toasty.

The space

Enjoy the large living room with vaulted ceilings, sky lights and a working wood stove. The kitchen is fully equipped including a refrigerator, stove and oven, all full size, plus a microwave, toaster and coffee maker. Small but functional dining room has access to the wrap around deck. 2nd bedroom has a futon which opens to a double size bed. Full tub and shower. Washer and dryer are included for your convenience. Towels and bedding are provided. There is also a playhouse for the kids within sight of the front porch. There are two window unit AC's for those rare hot days, however the hardwood tree canopy keeps the cabin shaded all day, and the ceiling fans in every room keep the indoors very comfortable even in the summer months.

Guest access

You will be renting the entire cabin, so make yourself at home. The parking area has room for 2 vehicles and is convenient to the front porch.

Interaction with guests

We live just up the hill from the cabin and will be available for any problems or questions. Knock at the door.....If we are not there, call or text.

Classic cabin-in-the-woods, really peaceful but with all the features you need

Charming cabin just a short drive to downtown Black Mountain. There are other homes nearby but so protected by surrounding wooded areas that it still felt private. Easy check in and nice touches such as fresh fruit, milk and OJ in the fridge, info on local restaurants and things to do, and Wi-Fi. Enjoyed our stay in early October.

This is a lovely cabin, rustic and secluded, but with everything we needed to be comfortable. Margie and Mac are great hosts. We hated to leave.

This is an excellent place to stay. Perfect for families! A cozy cabin under the forest canopy. The town of Black Mountain is charming -- Asheville is right down the road -- parks, mountains, and fun. Mac and Margie made us feel right at home.

This little gem was exactly as described. Mac and Margie were excellent hosts. They went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable for our stay - even providing some breakfast items and fruit. We couldn't have asked for more.

We loved the rustic and charming Bear Crossing cabin. The artistic touches of the antiques decorations added to the charm. Margie and Mac were accessible but inconspicuous. Black Mountain was interesting and there was more to it than we anticipated. Two thumbs up!

Margie and Mac sure know how to treat their guests right. We enjoyed our stay in this quiet, forested, private cabin home. We really appreciated the front porch and the treats and snacks. Extra bonus: being able to do a bit of laundry! Mac even left my husband, Bill, an assortment of cold, local birthday beers! We felt so relaxed, so welcome. The pantry and fridge were stocked with breakfast items. Thanks for a great stay!
