Bearfoot Lodge Review
Posted on: 10/22/2019
We rented Bearfoot Lodge for the month of July and August. It is a beautiful house with great Mountain Views. The house  definitely had more space than two people needed, but we did have guests at various times . We enjoyed the large kitchen which was well equipped, just lacking a cutting board, which we brought and a good wine opener. Since we were there for  2 months, we did a lot of cooking.
It was very good having the master bedroom on the main level. Two additional bedrooms upstairs and others on the lower level made it good for guests.
We enjoyed the back deck which spans the length of the house having access from the great room and the master bedroom. There are covered areas at both ends of the deck with comfortable rocking chairs. We also bought our own chairs.  There are extras in the garage. The hot tub in the yard was used quite often and is serviced regularly.  
The area is very quiet and we enjoyed the wildlife. Bunnies, Birds and Bears!
Saw several bears in the neighborhood and three in the yard. All great to watch from the back deck. We saw many wild Turkeys along the Community roads.

We hiked the Catawba Falls nearby and some trails within the neighborhood. The trail across the road from the horse barn follows along a creek and the community folks have installed wooden steps on the steep slopes. 

The town of Black Mountain is a 25 minute drive and about 45 minutes to downtown Asheville.  Do not miss a spot at StraightWay Cafe on Route 9 for music and Drinks. It has a Key West Rustic Mountain look.

Michael Masterman from Master Diamond Properties greeted us the first day or so. 
He was very responsive to our questions and needs. Offering suggestions from highways to take, to hikes and other attractions in the area.  
We would highly recommend this property and working with Michael.  Thanks for making our summer cool.
FYI.  AT&T does not work at this house. We were able to get some texts and email by internet but no phone service.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review of Bearfoot Lodge. We enjoyed having you on your extended stay this past summer. Glad you enjoyed the property and please reach out again in the future.

All the best,

Awesome Cabin
Posted on: 1/11/2016

This is a wonderfully appointed large cabin. Anything you might want is there. Big kitchen, wash/dryer, fireplace, garage, deck, hot tub, etc., etc. Very clean, fully stocked as far as I could tell. and spectacular views from every window. I would highly recommend and can't wait to return. Near by town of Black Mountain had great restaurants  and shopping as well.

Just a beautiful cabin with magnificent views.

This luxery cabin was a wonderful treat for our family with breath taking views of The Smokey Mountains.  The kids played and slept in the basement great room and bedroom.  While our guests stayed on the third floor bedrooms, which provided plenty of space for the families.  We took a wonderful walk to the waterfall, and spotted white tail deer, bald eagles, grouse and a great horned owl.  The fresh mountain air rejuvenated our lives.  Our dinner highlights was a wonderful trip to Black Mountain at Veranda, and we also made a terrific family dinner after shopping at Ingles.  It was very much like staying in a world class private resort.  I highly recommend this cabin, and we are booking reservations again this August.  Favorite family vacation ever.

Our stay at the cabin was better than we could have imagined! Great spaces inside with a wonderful homey and comfortable feeling, and fantastic views looking out onto beautiful mountainside with awesome sunsets. Property is well maintained with a huge kitchen/entertainment area, tons of sleeping ares, central fire place, and lots of comfy places to relax. The owner was very accessible and responsive to our concerns. We would go back in a heartbeat. Nearby Black Mountain had yummy places to eat and lots of quaint shops, supermarket with huge selection. Ashville a little further but still an easy trip from the cabin. Can't wait to return!

The most enjoyable time of my life
Posted on: 1/11/2016

This luxurious cabin in the beautiful Black Mountain area is truly a peaceful retreat! It is very quiet and private and offers several areas to "chill." This spacious house is perfect for large groups with a separate area downstairs for the kids to hang out. The open kitchen and living area is great for entertaining. There are decks off the back of the house with comfortable chairs and rockers which offer a great place to read a book. The main living room has a great table to spend time doing a puzzle and enjoying the fire. Take a hike down to an amazing waterfall right on the property !!!
