We had a really great time at Black Bear Cottages. The cabins are VERY cute and plush. I recommend Cabin 3 which is exactly what you would picture if you were picturing a perfect little mountain cabin. We had talked to the owner John on the phone about 4 times before we finally reserved the cabin and he was very nice and took the time to answer all of our questions (and we had a lot of questions!). We were able to bring our dog which was a good thing. When we got there we were not disappointed! The whole place looks so cute and the owner was just as nice in person. There was a board on the wall in the office where they have patches from police and military people who have stayed there and my husband will be mailing him his patch. John checked us in and gave us some great suggestions for places to eat. When we got into our cabin we were really pleased. It was totally immaculate and I am very picky about that kind of thing. My husband even said that it was clean enough to make me happy! The carpeting looked like it was brand new and real thick. The sofa in the living room looked like it belonged in a mountain cabin and real cozy place to sit and watch the fire and the TV. The bed was SOOOO comfortable and the whole place was just so cozy! There were no extra charges. I'm a teacher and my husband just got home from Iraq so we don't have a lot of money but we definitely feel like we got a bargain at Black Bear Cottages. We will be back for sure. They even have discounts for military.
