About the property

Two-story, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath custom home.

Come explore the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina and base your vacation at Black Bear Retreat! Looking for a romantic getaway or a family gathering? Black Bear Retreat is a special home just waiting for you. Perched at about 3,000 feet in elevation, this immaculate custom-built, contemporary Craftsman 2-story custom home has nearly 180 degree long-range, year-round views of the Broad River Valley and the Blue Ridge Mountain Range. On a clear fall day you can even see Mt. Mitchell, the highest mountain east of the Mississippi River!

Relax on the porches and take in the views! This secluded retreat is located in a private, gated community just 10 miles from Lake Lure, NC and Chimney Rock State Park, 16 miles to Black Mountain, 25 miles to downtown Asheville and only 18 miles to Hendersonville.

The lower level of this home has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath with over-sized walk-in shower and the laundry room. The upper level has a beautiful open floor plan containing the kitchen, living area with gas fireplace and dining area, 1/2 bath and the master suite with generous soaking tub, but not a shower. Three covered decks provide relaxing comfort for reading, dining, bird watching or mountain gazing. An outside gas fireplace will keep you warm on those cool evenings.

NOTE: There is a security camera inside the front door and overlooking the driveway. The fire ring outside cannot be used due extremely dry conditions and the risk of a forest fire.

Beautiful home and views

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful with nice décor located on the mountain with great views of the rolling mountains. Mile road up to the house is narrow with many twists and turns. Outdoor fireplace is a nice touch when sitting on 1 of many decks. House is stocked with everything needed. If you need the use of the elevator you must make arrangements prior to your stay.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I needed a place to hibernate to after a grueling 3 month campaign running for office amidst many other life changes. This retreat was just what the doctor ordered, peaceful, calm, scenic views and a wonderful small town nearby (Hendersonville) that our kids loved. We will definitely visit again!

Beautiful Black Bear Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to stay while visiting nearby Asheville. This home was absolutely perfect. Exactly as described in the profile. The veiw was unbelievable. About 20-30 minutes to the Biltmore Estate and downtown Asheville. The elevator in the home was perfect for my parents who both have trouble with their knees. There are several nice local restaurants just down the road in Lake Lure. I would highly recommend this home over any chain hotel in the area.

Beautiful Home with Matching Views

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Black Bear Retreat. The house was clean, extremely well equipped, and very cozy. The house is a solid 45 minutes to 1 hour from downtown Asheville because of the winding roads that lead up to the fantastic views at Black Bear Retreat. It is well worth your time.
