This has been our BEST family vacation ever! Bee and JoJo needed time with their 2 children, son in laws, and 3 grandchildren and we certainly got it at Birds Eye View. We spent every evening on the back deck watching the sun set and welcomed each morning sunrise as well. The kitchen was perfect and so well equipped - we didn't lack for a thing. You can tell that his cabin fosters love! We will look forward to coming back soon!

We had an amazing time at Bears Eye View! We had a group of 9 adults and 2 children that gathered to celebrate my father's 80th birthday. The house was gorgeous and the perfect size for us. Plenty of open spaces to gather in smaller groups; large back porches (yes, there are 2!) with a hot tub and grill, family room with a pool table, large dining room table, outdoor fire pit, and an open kitchen that allowed those who were cooking/preparing meals to join in on conversation. We enjoyed every amenity the house offered and everything was in excellent condition. The house was neat and tidy, and all those bathrooms allowed everyone to get up and ready in a reasonable timeframe. We really appreciated the first floor master bedroom with a king size bed. My father is 6'2" and has difficulties using the stairs so he was able to stay on the main floor and just walk out of his bedroom to gather with everyone in the living room/kitchen. It was a breeze to gain access to the house and I always received a prompt response when we had questions and requested a later check out time. Of course the very best part of this house was the view! We will remember this trip for a very long time.

What a beautiful house. Loved the layout, hot tub was wonderful. The kitchen is fully stocked & even has extra things like spices, dishwasher tabs, trash bags extra toilet paper, shampoo/conditioner, & a hair dryer. I wished we could have used fire pit but there was high winds that weekend. Would definitely recommend this house for a friends or family getaway. Thank you so much

This place was great for our ladies trip. As females we are very particular about cleanliness, yet this location was spectacular! We had no complaints.

- The Gumms and Burkhallers, Posted: 12/19/2020

- Debra, Posted: 10/30/2018
This home was lovely- pictures on the website are true to life. The views were awesome! Easily parked 4 cars and could have easily parked another one without blocking the neighbor's drive. The kitchen was well stocked. Beds comfortable. Easily accommodated 4 couples with room to spare. The pick up and drop off of the keys after hours worked like a charm. House was within 2 miles of a Food Lion and close to the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway.
- Richard, Posted: 07/07/2018
Wow! What a beautiful home! We gathered our family of aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins. This is such a beautiful area with so much to do. Your home served as the host to making lots of great family memories! We also had absolutely perfect weather, so that made our mountain views more spectacular as we relaxed on the deck. We hope to return to A Bears Eye View for more family reunions in years to come!
- Perry (Ron), Posted: 06/23/2018

easy, no issues, great information, and great property.
- Jacob, Posted: 01/21/2018
We decided to do a friends trip this year. It will certainly be a tradition. We normally camp each year but the amenities of the cabins were wonderful! We didn’t have to hear anyone fuss that the ground was too hard! From now on there will be a mountain cabin trip and a camping trip. The walls of this house heard a lot of good laughter this weekend! Until next time!
- Stephen, Posted: 01/07/2018
Happy new year! Wow what a weekend! My husband posted a surprise party with all of my college best D’s and spouses. We enjoyed the hot tub and 5° weather with icicles in our curls.

- Wilbur, Posted: 11/26/2017
We had such a wonderful Thanksgiving vacation and your beautiful home. Our family travel from all over North Carolina to be together a Bears iview was perfect. The two living areas accommodated our large family so well. We love your game tables and the hot tub! The location of your cabin is perfect because we could travel to blowing rock, the parkway, and price park quickly! Our family got to enjoy a home cooked meals around your large table and roasted marshmallows by your fire pit. Everything was fabulous! Your home is warm cozy and inviting. It was a lovely week!

Had a fun weekend being up here. This time my 2 young nephews were with us which made it extra special. Beautiful warm house- great view. Love what you did with the back of the garage by adding the firepit. Great accommodation for a large family gathering- plenty of space! Love the mountains! Thank you!
- Michael, Posted: 07/13/2017
Loved this place. Well furnished for the most part, with bear decor on absolutely everything. We spent a lot of time in the hot tub and shooting pool. The Foosball was missing, so we couldn't use that table, but we didn't mind. Modern televisions in every room and a well stocked kitchen. The views are amazing, and it's very close to Blowing Rock and Boone, so we had easy trips to Grandfather Mtn. and Tweetsie Railroad.
I highly recommend this place if you have a big family.
- Larry, Posted: 07/13/2017
We ate, we drank, we laughed, we napped, repeat! You have a lovely home and we had a wonderful time!

- Emily, Posted: 07/13/2017
Three generations of our family traveled from four states, including five cities in North Carolina, to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of the patriarch & matriarch of our big family. Enjoying ourselves immensely in this beautiful setting, we spent our time laughing, talking, playing games, singing, and sharing memories dating back to the 1940's. It will be a weekend to remember for the next 50 years and beyond, and A Bears Eye View will provide the perfect backdrop for those memories.
- Dorothy, Posted: 07/13/2017
Fantastic views- miles & miles of beautiful! Fun for everyone in the family, a total of 11 family members. We enjoyed the house, hot tub, firepit, Linville, Blowing Rock, and more.
- Michael, Posted: 07/13/2017
What a great escape from our normal! Our family from Wilmington met our family from Ohio for a long weekend at A Bears Eye View. Explored the majesty of Grandfather Mountain, the kitschy fun of Tweetsie Railroad, and tamed the Nolichucky on a whitewater trip. Mostly though, we connected with family members we only see once a year- playing Dominoes, Balderdash, and Chinese Checkers.
We loved this place! Living in the clouds, beautiful sunrises, and a hot tub under the stars- what more could you ask for?
- The Gilmore's, Posted: 07/26/2016

What an amazing and beautiful spot in the mountains . The extended Malone family came for a family reunion in Blowing Rock and had a wonderful time. The house had plenty of room to host 3 generations for dinner. The sunsets were stunning off the back deck. We visited Tweetsie, Grandfather Mountain, The Blowing Rock and enjoyed Kilwins ice cream almost every day just to name a few activities. This was definitely a week to remember. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
- The McQuillin Family, Posted: 06/12/2016

We had an absolutely FABULOUS stay at A Bear's Eye View. It is a wonderful house with lots and lots of amenities. It was spotlessly clean and almost perfectly stocked. The hot tub was awesome, we had no issues with the refrigerator. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and loved the home and setting. Our family, my husband and I, our son, his wife and 3 children and my daughter and her husband had plenty of room and beds. We enjoyed being able to have tvs for anyone who wanted to watch anything at any time. The hot tub was a huge success. The view amazing, The pool table, foosball, decks and fire pit were enjoyed. We all agreed that this is the best house and the best area for vacation that we have ever had as a family. We thought we loved the Smokies and Maggie Valley, but we are now HUGE Blowing Rock fans. I just cannot say enough. It was fabulous! Our experience with Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals was the most positive ever. Every contact with every person and every email, phone call, check in through the black mail box and check out with the drop box were all flawless. What else can I say?!?!! I will be back, my family will be back and we will contact you for accomodations and will recommend you to anyone going that way. Thank you again for an absolutely PRICELESS experience.
- Peggy Y., Posted: 05/25/2015

Almost Heaven- Blue Ridge Mountains at A Bear's Eye View! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful place with us. Beautiful home, fabulous view and great town.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!! It was like a second honeymoon!!
- The Duncan, Moore and Avant Families, Posted: 04/27/2015
Beautiful house and view! We really enjoyed our time with our group of friends and children- this is an annual trip, but the first mountain house that has had a fire pit and hot tub, which we used every day! Thank you for a perfect place for our vacation! Also loved the convenience of being so close to downtown Blowing Rock and Boone!
- The Hoppen Families, Posted: 01/02/2015
A lovely place for our large group. The view was Beautiful!! It was great being so close to Appalachian Ski Mountain and bringing in the New Year seeing their fireworks from our porch! PS: Our grandchildren from Florida wanted to see snow and it was Great! God Bless
