Description

Black Bear Summit, formerly known as "Cool View Cabin," has spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Lake Lure, and beyond that will make you stop and pause. This mountaintop log cabin in Gateway Mountain, a 3,000-acre nature preserve, is a wonderful getaway for family and friends yet close to all Western North Carolina attractions and activities. Stay on the mountain and enjoy all that Gateway Mountain has to offer including 2 lakes and a trout pond for catch-and-release fishing (no license required), a beautiful waterfall park, hiking trails, and abundant wildlife.

This lovely cabin has 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms featuring a Jacuzzi tub in one bath and a claw foot soaker tub in the other bath. A wood stove in the living area warms the soul on chilly nights and don't miss the beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the wrap-around deck. After a day of adventure enjoy the 6-person hot tub with the same spectacular views. There is also a fire pit for your enjoyment. Located 10 minutes off of I-40, trips to Black Mountain, Asheville, and the Blue Ridge Parkway are an easy 30-45 minutes; Lake Lure and Chimney Rock - 30 minutes.

While staying at Black Bear Summit, you'll enjoy an extensive selection of books, movies, games, and puzzles. Log into your own streaming accounts on the smart TV or peruse the extensive satellite channel selection. Take advantage of the owner's family's book of personal recommendations for food, drink, hiking, biking, and the area in general. Work remotely if you wish, via the fast wifi and workstation. Local and custom artwork throughout the cabin and a fully-stocked kitchen will make you feel at home.

"What a great place to spend a family getaway! We really enjoyed the location and the feel of being somewhat “off the grid”. The initial drive up the mountain can cause a little anxiety, especially with 3 daughters, but it gets much easier once done.. The views from the back deck are fantastic! The cabin is very comfortable.. It’s a short drive to Asheville, which we did a couple of times going shopping and to Biltmore. The town of Black Mountain was really nice too. The short trail hike to the local waterfall was well worth it! We were also lucky enough to get a few snow flakes our last night on the mountain! Overall, a great trip!"

"Very clean, well stocked. only comment would be to underline the importance of 4 wheel drive for the driveway. I'd assume the owners may eventually pave the steep part, but that was a doozey!"

"Check in was easy and the info provided prior to check in was very good. The house was fantastic and the views were amazing. We had a great time with our daughters who were able to take a break from college and working to join us in a very relaxing week. Great experience, we’ll be back for sure!"

"I have to admit we were all sad to leave this beautiful home! What an absolutely beautiful view! Loved the roominess of the home. There were 5 of us and we all had plenty of space. The thoughtful amenities were great (fans in every room). We have booked many vacations on line over the past ten years or more and this cabin is by far the best place we have ever stayed! Can’t wait to come back! Loved the hot tub with towels! Enjoyed the fire pit! Loved the time we spent outside in awe of the beautiful Mountain View! And the amazing stove! Kitchen has everything you need!"

"What a beautiful place to stay for the week! My husband and I loved how scenic the drive up to the cabin was and when we saw those beautiful mountain views on the porch, we just never wanted to leave! The cabin is well stocked--we love to cook so this kitchen was a dream kitchen. It had a 6-gas burner, double oven stove with ample pots and pans, cooking tools, a bender, toaster, 2 coffee makers, grilling tools, etc. The internet was great during the day, but very spotty at night so I recommend bringing DVDs to watch to be on the safe side. We tried to watch our Netflex and Prime shows but the internet was slow at night so it became annoying. The property management team was super nice and attentive. We recommend taking a ride into Old Fort (20 mins away) for lunch and a beer at Hillmans. Great atmosphere and the beers were excellent. Black Mountain is 30 mins away and you will find a big grocery store, a butcher, and tons of shops and restaurants, along with more breweries! We loved our stay here and even got lucky and saw a beautiful black bear in the community on our way to the Falls."
