We invite you to come and stay at Asheville's only 'COZY BEAR COTTAGE' - A Beary Nice Place
Our 'Cozy Bear Cottage' will provide you with a very comfortable and serene place to stay during your visit to Asheville and the surrounding area. Our cottage is located in East Asheville and it is only a ten-minute drive to downtown Asheville. You will have easy and quick access to I-40, I-240, and I-26 which provides the ability to quickly get to places such as the Biltmore Estate, Black Mountain, Grove Park Inn, as well as music venues, restaurants and shops in downtown Asheville. The cottage is located on a well-maintained private road in a very quiet and safe setting. Access to the Blue Ridge Parkway is 2.5 miles away and from there it’s a short drive to either Mount Pisgah to the south or Mount Mitchell to the north. (check out the Folk Art Center just as you get onto the Blue Ridge Parkway) Drive to Chimney Rock and take in the tremendous views from on top and then go to Lake Lure and enjoy a very nice guided-tour on a pontoon boat. Check out Navitat Canopy Adventures in Barnardsville, NC to experience a unique and fantastic zip lining experience (zip and walk through the treetops in the day or night time).
The cottage has three roomy bedrooms, two full baths, a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable living room with a 37” HDTV, large and wide wrap around deck, premium hot tub with built-in sound system, fire pit, and a newly install six foot wooden fence along the side and rear of property. Please refer to the photos that have been provided to give you more details about the cottage as well.
Our family has found that traveling to Asheville will provide you with an almost overwhelming amount of things to do and see. In addition to the places mentioned above our cottage is just minutes away from first class golfing, art museums, various hiking and biking trails, white water rafting in the French Broad River in the spring and summer months and in the winter months go snow skiing and snowboarding at either Cataloochee Ski Resort in Maggie Valley, NC or Wolf Ridge Ski Resort in Mars Hill, NC. Lake James is close by for your enjoyment as well.
Downtown Asheville is a great place to spend some time and you will experience wonderful dining, music, and shopping. Some of our favorite places to eat are Sunny Point, Early Girl Eatery, Over Easy Café, French Broad Chocolate Lounge, Laughing Seed, Tupelo Honey, Bouchon French Bistro, Vinnie's Italian Restaurant, Heiwa Shokudo Japanese Restaurant, Olive or Twist, and many, many other fine restaurants. Enjoy a fun night out for a wide variety of music playing at the Orange Peel or Civic Center. Usually on Friday nights there will be a drum circle gathering that just happens along with numerous performances on the street corners. Another interesting place is the Sky Bar where you can view the surrounding city and mountains and watch a beautiful sunset from a unique outside venue. In the spring and summer enjoy a baseball game at the historic McCormick Field. There are also numerous seasonal festivals to attend. From the large to small shops in the downtown area all are very unique and and provide an almost endless array of selections. Fun and memorable times can be had by all and your days and nights will seem to pass quickly so please plan your mountain adventure carefully so you can take advantage of all that Asheville and the surrounding area have to offer.
We sincerely hope that you will come and enjoy a trip to Asheville and make our 'Cozy Bear Cottage' a relaxing and comfortable part of it all. Just send us an email inquiry or give us a call at 352-538-5645 and we will be glad to assist you.
We are originally from North Carolina and for the past seventeen years have enjoyed living and raising our children in North Central Florida. Traveling to the North Carolina mountains and especially the Asheville area has always been an enjoyable and adventuresome experience. The beauty, serenity, and peacefulness of the area is the alluring factor. There just seems to always be something new and interesting to see and experience because of the seasonal changes in the climate. Chefs from all over the world have opened resturants in Asheville and have produced an extraordinary variety of excellent dining options for us to enjoy as well. We have two dogs (Husky and American Eskimo) that enjoy our trips to the mountains as well to hike and enjoy the wonderful mountain weather. We like calling Carolina home and so might you.

Asheville, NC has been called the 'Paris of the South' and is an interesting place to visit to experience a wide variety of cusines, music, shopping, hiking, biking and just to enjoy the mountain life.
Our family and friends stayed here for our wedding. Unfortunately, the weather chose not to cooperate, but the cottage itself was delightful. Don't use Google Maps to find the house, though, as it will take you on the wrong journey! All ended well, as the owner was expecting us, answered our SOS call promptly, and guided us to our destination. Lovely property that we hope to explore more fully in better weather.
Beautiful house! Tony and Rose were so accommodating and available for questions. I will say that if you use google maps to get to the house, it took me to an abandoned house that was nearby. Others of us used the apple version of maps and it took them to the correct house. Plenty of space with a GREAT porch!
Great place. Everything was just as it was described. Will definitely be back
We absolutely loved our stay at Cozy Bear Cottage! It was very easy to find (only minutes off the Interstate) and very close to all conveniences. Many restaurants are within a few minutes drive and the Ingles grocery store is right down the street. The property is private and cozy but if you choose to go into downtown Asheville, it is only a short 10 minute drive away. This was the perfect spot to reconnect with our adult kids...we loved the hot tub each evening and Tony and Rose have thought of everything as far as kitchen necessities, etc...the home was clean and comfy and the BEST PART of all is that they allowed us to bring our dog! THANK YOU TONY AND ROSE!!! This is such a rarity when looking for a vacation property but it is absolutely essential for us as we refuse to board her anywhere. The home has a wonderful fenced in area where she could run and play and she also enjoyed being curled up in front of the fireplace with the rest of us! We also found Azalea Dog Park (5 minute drive) that was WONDERFUL! This is really the perfect location for relaxation and fun! Hurry here soon to make some great memories!
Had a great stay at the Cozy Bear. Plenty of space for 8 of us. A lot of sitting areas, very clean upon arrival, close to downtown.
Cozy Bear Cottage was a great place to stay on our family vacation. Booking and check-in was easy and the house is ideal with a great front yard/porch and kitchen is well stocked for those who want to cook while vacationing. Location is just perfect with an easy drive to Black Mountain and Biltmore Estate and other attractions. Owner is very nice to work with and always prompt in communication. It was my 2nd visit to the cottage and has become the first place we check when returning to the mountains.
