- Very Good
Better than we expected. Photos don't do it justice, what a nice home & sooo comfortable! A few things to note: the upstairs king bed is VERY HIGH. Little stools are provided, but I was nervous to use them, worried I'd miss halfway getting out of bed - would rather fall flat... But it was a great mattress & very comfortable! That's the only bed on the main level, but there is a basement walk-in for the other 2 beds & full bath - just not very easy access for someone disabled - & must do stairs to get to kitchen. 2nd: the drive up to, & down from, the house is extremely steep & windy - not for the wimpy driver or weak vehicle transmission/brakes (nor is it for someone in a hurry!). 3rd: Note! No phone reception, except for land line with your credit card charged. Thank goodness for internet access! We used EMAIL to communicate with anyone we arranged meetings with during our trip. Leatherwood is about 30 minutes to the nearest downtown of Wilkesboro; otherwise there are 2 small convenience stores/gas stations ONLY & nothing else around...so plan your time & needs! We absolutely loved it at Black Bear (my husband & I, his parents & our adolescent sons) & we will be back, God willing!
“Christmas with the family!”
This was our first time staying at Black Bear Lodge. The cabin was beautiful and the downstairs area was perfect for our two boys. They enjoyed having their own room and playing pool. We will definitely stay at Black Bear Lodge again.
“Beautiful and very clean”
We had a wonderful experience! Our cabin/home was more than I expected. It was very clean, comfy and the view was gorgeous. I'm ready to go back again.
“Great time had by all!”
Great cabin with everything needed to have a good time! Two bedrooms down stairs perfect for kids to play. Nicely decorated and good views of the mountains!
My family had a great time in the Black Bear Lodge. It is a beautiful home with all the amenities. The staff were more than helpful and the view is gorgeous. Sitting on the porch, drinking tea and chatting - my idea of heaven on earth. The family loved playing pool, enjoyed the hot tub, and we walked on the road, seeing deer and birds. I'd love to go back.
“Beautiful, serene escape!”
My family of four had a blast at this cabin. The whole family loved the hot tub on the fully gated back deck (main level) that the dogs and my four year old could be on without any safety concerns. My 11 year old loved the pool table on the lower level. The master bed/bath on the main level was spacious with a nice separate shower or jetted tub and the other two bedrooms on the lower level were at opposite ends giving the kids maximum privacy, in-room TVs, and a bathroom in between. I also loved that the cabins have a large woodpile in the back so you can have all the relaxing fires you want without bringing/collecting/buying any firewood. Due to being on the side of a mountain, there's no real yard to play in so you definitely need to watch the kids and dogs around the property, but we thought the location was wonderful!
“Rental has declined in expericence”
This was our 10th year coming to leatherwood and our 5th time staying at black bear lodge, and the house was not up to its previous visits. Mostly disappointed in how dirty and dusty the home was. The carpet downstairs was really dirty, cob webs everywhere, doors and windows dirty , etc. also strong sewer smell on day outside. Also beds have become very uncomfortable as compared to previous years. We will not stay at this location again, we will try another location or another area to visit.
Response from the manager We regret not hearing about your dissatisfaction until now. Given the opportunity we make every effort to accomodate our guests if we are notified of issues at check-in, including upgrades. Leatherwood Rentals and the owners of Black Bear Lodge appreciate your feedback. Updates including hardwood flooring in the basement are in the works. Brief sewer smells can become noticeable when septic systems are stressed due to a large influx of gray water. Gray water refers to water used through sinks and showers.
“Return to Black Bear”
This was my 2nd or 3rd stay at Black Bear. I love the place because it seems so isolated. From the back deck all you see is trees and mountains, not a hint that you are in any kind of development. Also, there is a long distance on either side before any other cabins. You can have a big hot-tub party with music going and know you are not bothering anybody. The screened in porch was fixed, so it's nice again. Furniture in living area is getting a bit worn looking, but it's still comfortable. The two wood-burning fire places are a big draw to keep us coming back. Nothing like a real wood fire in a log cabin for the real mountain experience. The driveway is a bit steep, but short and paved, so access is easy into the cabin. We always enjoy our stay at Black Bear.
“Splendid Time away From Home”
The home was fully furnished with cooking, linens, towels, utensils, grill, and toiletry supplies. It was a super location from the entrance, and to several other spots;such as, Blowing Rock and Grandfather's Mountain. The best part of the trip was the view from the master bedroom and from upper level den. My mother has cancer and this was one thing she wanted to do. Taking walks each morning onto the horse trails were awesome. The leaves were beautiful and the quietness gave the effect no one else was on earth except for us..The only thing we had problems with were the ladybugs in the master bedroom, but this will certainly not keep us from coming back next year!
“A great needed getaway”
the black bear lodge was absolutly the best time away we have had in a while,this was our first experience to staying at a mountain place,the scenery was great,cool nights waem days,hot tub on a cool nite was impressive, the bebs were terrific,and the kitchen was stocked with whatever you needed to prepare a meal,,we will definitly be returning at a latter date
