"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Black Bear. This is our second year staying in this beautiful cabin. The only complaint/suggestion is better pillows. That's a minor issue, but no one liked the pillows at all. Otherwise, everything was perfect."

"Beautiful property with lots of separate spaces and plenty of activities. With our group of 9 adults we never felt crowded and had plenty to do even when it rained! The large dining table is awesome for gathering for meals or games. The deer are so peaceful to watch and enjoy. Amazing time!"

"Black Bear Retreat is a wonderful home to gather with friends and family. There are 5 king bedrooms spread out over 3 floors. The master suite is on the upper level and has a nice bath with a large double vanity, glass shower and separate potty room. No bumping elbows here! The bedroom is spacious, mattress was comfortable, walk-in closet was good size. We also enjoyed the views from the attached porch. Two other bedrooms are on the upper level that share 1 hall bath. One of the bedrooms features a king bed with XL twin above and an alcove with 2 pullout chairs. It also has shelves with kids toys/coloring books. The kids loved it! Main level has one king bedroom which uses the 1/2 bath across the hall. Lower level has a large king bedroom and uses the large bath downstairs (not ensuite). The kitchen is very functional and is well stocked with silverware and cookware. We spent most evenings grilling on the back porch overlooking the sunset. We had a lovely long range view to the west. The 9th tee box is next to the house on the other side. Trees (summer) provided almost total privacy from golfers. The family room was very comfortable and offered lots of comfortable seating, pillows and throws. The couch pulls out into a bed if needed. Both upstairs and downstairs family rooms had Roku TVs with accounts already set up to use as well as all bedrooms. We appreciated the near level entry and the two car garage. The fire pit, hot tub and pool table were a huge hit and enjoyed by all! Carolina Cabin Rentals were very responsive to any requests such as garbage pick up. The washer and a coffee pot needed to be replaced at the beginning of our stay. Communication and coordination of replacements were excellent. They perform a "mid stay" inspection which I was not aware of, but it was not a problem. Spa was very clean and serviced during our stay (3 weeks). Carolina Cabin Rentals also helped coordinate our transfer membership to BMC (the club). Everything went smoothly and we were very happy. We are looking to rent again next year!"

"This home met all of our needs and then some. This home was fabulous, spacious, amazing views, and perfect at the golf course. We celebrated my daughters 50th birthday there and had an amazing time. Everything about this home with location, amount of bedrooms, and all of the areas fir sitting and activities were above and beyond what we dreamed of. We would definitely stay here again and we got lots of lasting memories for her 50th birthday. Thanks for such an awesome place to be! The only thing I would add is to add a full bathroom to the main level since there is a bedroom on that floor, other than that it was all great!"

"Our experience at the house “Black Bear Retreat” really exceeded our expectations! The house was immaculate and was beautifully decorated. Every place my eyes turned it was, “wow - look at this”! The view from the back deck overlooked not only the golf course to the right, but to the left was a spectacular view of mountain ranges as far as the eye could see. In the evening, the sun set over this mountain range. I would be hard pressed to find anything displeasing with our experience there. Nice job! Tim and Suzanne"

"Great location close to Sugar Mountain, Banner elk, and Beech Mountain. The home was roomy enough to accommodate our family of 11. Beautiful grassy areas/walking area along the golf course in the back end of the property. Would definitely recommend!"
