The Bear Lake Lodge is the largest of our 8 rustic mountain log cabins, ranging from our cozy one-bedroom log cabins to the four-bedroom Bear Lake Lodge, which alone accommodates up to 13 people! Get low starting from just $495 per week for our one-bedroom lodges. Our NC log cabins are near Asheville, Hendersonville, the Biltmore Estate, Chimney Rock and Lake Lure.

The tranquility and ambiance of Bear Lake Lodge is sure to make this mountain hideaway your family’s vacation favorite for years to come. This Asheville Cabin sits about 200 feet from one of two private retreat docks on the lake and is our largest NC mountain vacation rental. At the dock you will find paddle boats and across the lake another dock with sandy beach and more paddle boats for your fishing getaway.  The Bear Lake Lodge is comprised of an upstairs and downstairs. The Mama Bear is the 3 bedroom upper level with ping-pong table on one of two screened in porches. The Baby Bear is the downstairs of the cabin that consists of a second master suite and adjacent game room with big screen TV and air hockey table.

Amenities abound… like our two massive stone fireplaces, leather furniture, hand-carved log furniture, oriental carpets, antiques, air hockey table, ping pong table, big screen satellite TV with movie channels, and rustic period pieces. The Master bedroom deck, wrapped by Canadian cedar log railing, overlooks the retreat’s private lake and dock with paddleboat.

Other amenities include a private hot tub, two fully equipped kitchens, full access to our 40-acre retreat, fishing for trout and more in our stocked lake, picnic area, sandy beach, walking trails, paddle boats, waterfall… and so much more! Be sure to check out our photo album!

This log cabin is near Asheville and the Biltmore Estate (we have discount tickets!), Chimney Rock and Lake Lure, Hendersonville, Tryon, and Flat Rock. We have a beautiful property plus easy access to great area attractions like horseback riding, spas, golfing, shopping, mountain biking, tubing on the Green River, and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Mama Bear – Upstairs

Our Bear Lake Lodge consists of an upstairs and downstairs, and is one large home accommodating up to 13 people.  The upstairs (Mama Bear) is 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, with a pullout sofa in the living room.  During our off season, many guests choose to rent just the Mama Bear level of the home, in which case the downstairs is locked and no other guests would be renting the downstairs of the cabin.

Mama Bear Bedrooms

The master bedroom is so inviting that you may wish to stay indoors. There is a king sized hand-hewn log bed and glass doors leading out to the deck and lake view. Two huge screened porches are on both sides of the Mama Bear, with decks on both ends of the house.

Behind the lodge’s master bedroom suite is a private hot tub among the trees, offering rest and relaxation under the stars. Aside from the master suite, the second bedroom’s double glass doors lead out to the side deck enclosed in Canadian cedar, and is also furnished with a hand-hewn log bed. Adding to the whole lodge is the third bedroom, furnished with a Victorian antique bedroom suite.

Two sofas grace the pine-paneled living room, one leather with two recliners and another queen sofa bed. Serving as the centerpiece of the living room is a massive stone fireplace, TV and a picture window overlooking the front screened-in porch.

Mama Bear Kitchen, Dining and Living

The dining room and living room lead into the well-equipped country kitchen, which overlooks a second screened-in rear porch with a ping pong table, running the entire backside of the lodge.  Oh, yes we left out the sunroom – it adjoins the dining room, and overlooks the rear deck with a gas grill and picnic furniture.

Baby Bear – Downstairs

Our Baby Bear is the downstairs of the Bear Lake Lodge cabin.  You will enjoy its massive stone fireplace, big screen Satellite TV with premium movie channels, and a leather sofa with leather recliner. There is also an antique pub table, an air hockey table, the second kitchen of the home with bar and 4 inch thick log top bar stools.

In the corner is a log bunk bed with double bed on the bottom and single on the top. The Baby Bear is a very special place.

Baby Bear Master Suite

Leading from the great room you enter the second master bedroom of the Bear Lake Lodge, 17×25 master bedroom suite with a walk-in closet. The suite showcases a sitting area with a hand-carved French leather sofa and two matching chairs. Recessed in the opposite end is a hand-hewn log bed with an upward sloping ceiling framed on top with a poplar log. Across the room is a matching log dresser and a log-outlined mirror.

The bath has a ceramic tiled floor, hand made cypress cabinets, double sinks and brass shower. As you exit the master bedroom suite, you’ll walk through double French doors and head toward the Bear Lake Lodge dock on the stocked lake, filled with trout.

The Dock

As a guest of the Bear Lake Lodge, you will be delighted by the quiet walk down to a lakeside dock for swimming, fishing, or paddle boating!

As you pass through the arbor and walk down the path to the dock, you will enjoy the wonderful view of the lake and surroundings from the log fence.

Our NC cabin rental is in Saluda, NC near Asheville, Hendersonville, Tryon, Chimney Rock and Lake Lure, and Flat Rock. Great activities surround us including shopping, spas, golfing, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, and hiking!
