“We were delighted with our stay at Momma Bear! The restoration that you have done & the preservation was remarkable. I loved the vintage decor and enjoyed a fire each night in the fireplace. Ben took full advantage of the surroundings for his photography! We couldn’t have picked a more relaxing and enjoyable place to ring in the new year! Thank you & we will be back!

Dear Marc and Pam – we really enjoyed our stay at your wonderful cabin — watching the sunrise each morning, building a fire in the fireplace at night, visiting the chickens and the cows and gazing at the stars. We cooked steaks and noodles and made salads and omelets in your lovely kitchen. Two days ago it thunder stormed through the night and we told ghost stories in the dark. We spent a long afternoon in Waynesville and had a breathtaking hike on the Max Patch Trails. What a great time we had. Thanks for the lovely memories!!

“We love Brutus! We love the cows and chickens and all of the authentic cabin essentials you thought of when renovating this home. From the delicious honey in the fridge to the carved mice you placed hiding throughout the cabin. It was so nice to have a real fire every night, and free firewood too! Your attention to detail and superb craftsmanship really contributed to our weekend mountain getaway. Your property is beautiful. Marc and I truly enjoyed our stay, it was just what we needed to relax, get outdoors and marvel at the beautfy of the mountains. We hope to come back again, maybe with our pups! Thank you!”

Dear Marc and Pam
“Staying at Momma Bear Cabin has been such a wonderful part of our 25th anniversary get away. Coming here for the first time; after a long drive and a busy day of sightseeing in Asheville and a traffic jam on I-40, we walked in the door and said, “Aaaaaah!” I feel that we were lucky to find this place, lucky to be here as the leaves were turning and lucky to be here when it was cool enough to enjoy a fire in the fireplace. Even the animals were welcoming, although the mice that visit our cabin back home are not so well behaved as the ones here! We miss all our animals when we’re away from them (we have a farm too) but here we enjoyed their company without having to feed or clean up after them! Thanks for a lovely time.”

“Thanks so much for your kindness and generosity. This is by far the best place we’ve stayed in the NC mountains! We’ll see you in March on my birthday!
P.S. Big Perk- Very easy to get to off the interstate.

Dear Pam and Marc
“You’ve created such a great and welcoming place. We loved the mix of old and new, and all the little details. From the nice old quilts to the great and quirky tub. We’ll miss the cows and chickens……..And waking up in the morning to the mist and birds. Thanks for everything. All the best.
