  • Perfect getaway


    I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here! It was quiet, and I loved seeing the animals! Plus it was decently close to downtown Asheville! I will say if you are someone who cannot be unplugged during your stay, this property is not for you because the Wi-Fi did not work during my stay. I wasn’t there for that so not a problem for me personally.

  • Three Cheers for Three Bear Hollow!


    Enjoyed a brief but lovely stay at Papa Bear cabin with my husband and two boys. As we pulled up to park we were greeted by a donkey and a goat peering over the fence at us! The cabin is spotless, rustic in feel but not in function, incredible views and peaceful silence. Wi-Fi wasn't steady enough to use but it was PERFECT as we all just pulled out some DVDs they supplied at the cabin and enjoyed some off-line time as a family. Highly recommend this for a lovely getaway!

  • Peaceful mountain trip


    We enjoyed our time at Papa bear cabin! This was our second time there and we will definitely be returning annually! So relaxing waking up to the fresh mountain air and drinking coffee on the front porch. It was nice to unplug and relax. Great location, right next to max patch which is a must do!

  • Perfect Stay at Papa Bear Cabin!


    Our family of four enjoyed a brief but delightful stay at Papa Bear Cabin. We delighted in the pony and donkey roaming in the pasture, enjoyed the gorgeous views and peaceful silence among the trees, and made use of the full amenities provided (well-stocked kitchen) for a comfortable and relaxing time together. The Wi-Fi is very unreliable but it just made for a more charming time together as a family, playing some games and watching a few DVDs (all of which were provided in the cabin!). Would highly recommend this property as a place to get away from life's hectic rhythms.
