Big Bear Escape is a custom built three-bedroom two bath luxury cabin and is just down the road from its smaller counterpart ‘Little Bear Escape’.  Privately located off the road, it’s perfect for those looking for a getaway surrounded by nature. This luxury cabin offers mountain views and is conveniently located between Boone and Banner Elk with just a short drive to either.

Enter the main level of this spacious home from the parking area up just 6 steps to a large spacious great room which features a large mounted smart TV, floor to ceiling windows and a cozy wood burning fireplace. The open concept layout paired with high ceilings and wall of windows make you feel that you are truly a part of the surrounding forest landscape while offering stunning year-round views of Grandfather Mountain.

Across from the great room is the dining area with comfortable seating for 4 and the fully equipped kitchen featuring a custom built island with barstools for two, stainless steel appliances, soft-closing cabinets and high quality silverware, knives, and cookware.  

Down the hall toward the east side of the main level is a laundry room with custom cabinetry and a stacked front-loading washer and dryer. Across from the laundry room is a full bathroom with a walk-in shower. At the end of the hall is a full bathroom with a custom tiled shower, and the entrance to a spacious bedroom.  This suite features a king bed with hotel quality sheets and a forested view.


Just steps away down the hall is the master suite with a king bed, large windows and an ensuite master bath. This master bath features a stunning double vanity, custom tile work and a glass encased walk in shower. Truly spa like.


Upstairs is a loft reading nook located just outside a bedroom featuring two twins, a large TV and cozy beanbag seating! Perfect for the kids to get cozy in a space of their own.

Outside is a large floating deck equipped outdoor dining table, large sectional sofa, grill and a hot tub where you can enjoy the peaceful sounds of nature and enjoy the views of the mountains and sunsets.   For those traveling with a larger group and need additional accommodations, Little Bear Escape is located on the same road and is approximately 100 yards away.
