The Black Bear Retreat is one of the nicest cabins that we have rented. I highly recommend that you heed the owner’s advice and drive a 4WD vehicle because the last climb up to the cabin is quite steep. We made it in our front wheel drive but only because I am familiar with driving on steep mountain roads. It was an adventure. After making it to the top we were rewarded by this wonderful cabin and the amazing view. Black Bear Retreat is first class all the way. The cabin was very clean and very well appointed with everything that you might need. The beds were very comfortable and the living room / dining room / kitchen area was open yet cozy. Special touches are to be found throughout. It has a very warm feel to it that makes you feel right at home the moment you enter. The spacious deck allows ample room to relax and take in the view and watch the hawks soaring above. If I had to describe Black Bear Retreat in two words it would be “Mountain Elegance”. You will not want to leave this beautiful cabin.Keith H.

A VIEW TO DIE FOR
This cabin was the perfect family vacation spot my family needed. Upon arrival the cabin is very clean and packed with evey kitchen appliance you could ever think of. The owner even left items that they knew most people forget when they are grocery shopping. Every room was beautifully decorated with nice soft sheets and beautiful bedding. We all slept like babies at night and refreshed in the morning. Even the children's room with bunk beds had the most beautiful comforters and enough entertainment for the little ones where they wouldn't come of the room. I haven't seen lincoln logs since i was kid but the cabin was stocked with them for the young ones. The most spectacular part of this cabin is the views. We sat on the porch and watched the rain coming in from a distance before it even got to the cabin. It was just amazing. Every morning we would cook breakfast and sit on the porch and watch the hummingbirds feed, eagles flying over, the most colorful butterflies and take in the fresh mountain air. At night you could see the lights from the city in the distance. I would definitely come back and would recommend for anyone. You will love it.Anonymous
