Asheville House Rental Photos and Description

Mountain Cottage - 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Full Baths (Sleeps 8-10)

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.

About Tony Anderson

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.

Exactly what we were wanting!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you SO much, Tony! Your cabin is exactly what we were looking for in a mountain getaway. It was close to everything, better than even described and so easy to get settled into. The directions of how to check in and manage all the amenities were spot on. We wouldn't hesitate to come back. Thank you so much for everything! Perfect trip!

Wonderful, pet friendly place!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! Clean, perfectly stocked, location that is close to everything and very well maintained!! We were on a "Hurrication" and not sure when we would be able to return to our houses on the SC coast. Tony responded to us in less than an hour as we scrambled to make plans and was so accommodating! Beautiful fenced porches and a fully fenced yard made it superb for dogs! We will definitely look to stay there again when we next plan a pleasure trip to Asheville!

Beautiful and well stocked cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The Cozy Bear Cottage was absolutely perfect for our fall break getaway for my family of 4 (including 2 young girls who loved the kid room), my parents and our dog! We greatly enjoyed the fire pit, hot tub and coffee and drinks on the porch with the beautiful mountain view! The house was exactly as listed and was the best stocked rental I have ever stayed in! Every detail was thought of and we couldn't have been happier. The drive into Asheville was quick and easy and if we come back to Asheville, we will certainly try to get this cabin again! Thank you!!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My 4 girlfriends and I celebrated our milestone birthdays at the Cozy Bear cabin and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is only 10 minutes from downtown Asheville and convenient to everything. The accommodations were very comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with everything you would need, including coffee, cooking oil, spices, etc. The only dining table is in the kitchen, which makes it a little tight, but there are plenty of other areas to sit and the owners provide extra TV tables if you have a larger group. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the deck and the hot tub was great on a chilly evening. My only minor complaint was the sound of an occasional passing train at night and that you can hear the cars on the highway when you’re outside on the deck, but the rest of my group wasn’t bothered by it. Tony was very responsive and answered any questions we had quickly. We definitely recommend the Cozy Bear Cabin!

A wonderful trip

  • 5 of 5

We searched through many options before taking our trip to Asheville, and we're glad we did: the Cozy Bear Cottage was a delight.

The house is very comfortable, is a short drive from downtown Asheville with easy access to Uber and other forms of transport, and the owners are communicative and helpful - they even recommended a few great hikes for us to take while we were in town.

We had a fantastic trip and recommend this place fully.

Car: recommended

Close to major highways (I-40, I-240, & I-26), however feels rual in a beautiful mountain setting, does not require long difficult driving and is on a private paved road. Close to grocery stores and can drive to downtown Asheville in ten minutes and the town of Black Mountain in fifteen minutes. There are lots of wonderful local food resturants and both towns. Close to area hiking and short drive away is Wolf Laurel ski resort, white water rafting and zip lining at Navitat Canopy Adventures.
