About Rick Taylor

We spend most of our summer time in the cabin and love to take in a little snow in the winter as well as we live in Florida the rest of the time. The cabin is both secluded and cozy, yet easily accessible during snowy times. You will find all of the comforts of home there. it feels and looks like a true mountain lodge.

Rick Taylor purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Rick Taylor chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

Private and romantic setting, perfect for a weekend get away. Great restaurants and shopping close by. You have your own private hot tub just outside the back door!!

Dancing Bear delightful!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for the quintessential cabin stay that surpasses all your wants & needs, Dancing Bear is the place for you. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations - also, dont let the double beds setup in the third bedroom fool you, in case you have 3 couples or need 3 full bedrooms - pushed together they form a big comfy queen bed perfect for any couple. The grounds are exquisite and come stocked with firewood and an awesome firepit, and the jacuzzi worked perfectly - MUCH needed apres ski. The house comes stocked with all kinds of cleaning supplies, extra soaps, etc anything that you may have left home, linens, etc and the bathrooms and all the little "touches" made this stay wonderful - we will definitely be back next year. Rick was always very responsive and made checking in & out very simple, no big steps or processes to follow that you wouldn't normally in a mountain house. Enjoy Banner Elk, and stay at Dancing Bear Lodge - it really will be a part of your memories!

Awesome! Therapeutic! Perfect for 70th birthday!

The home is like a museum of art work and crafts with a theme of bears and wildlife. 3 fireplaces to burn away any bad karma. Linens were cozy! Family enjoyed the hot tub! Close to skiing.

The pictures DON'T do it justice, it's amazing

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased when we pulled up. The cabin was perfect and had everything we needed. We felt like we were staying in our own home. the beds were super comfortable and the decorations throughout the whole house made everything that much better. It's the perfect distance from everything we wanted to do as well. The pictures really don't do it justice. It is way better in person. We will be back.

Doesn't get better than this!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Dancing Bear Lodge was even better than we could have hoped! This place has everything you need. And we mean everything! From the unique and tasteful decor, to a fully stocked kitchen, the cabin had everything. The rooms were spacious and the beds were huge and comfortable. The fireplace was great and Rick had instructions for anything.

The large hot tub was one of our favorite parts. After long days of skiing this was just the place we wanted to relax.

The cabin felt very secluded, but was really only 1.5 miles from Sugar Mountain. We felt very spoiled and so happy we booked this cabin. We can't wait to make another trip next year. Thanks again to Rick!!

great location and amenities

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is all you want in the mountains....we felt like we were stepping into a well equipped home. We cooked a little but mostly relaxed after a full ski day. The pictures and description are accurate. We want to come back during other seasons to see how beautiful it is. All bedrooms were comfortable and provided privacy. Very close to skiing, restaurants and grocery stores. Owners were great and very responsive.
