Other than not realizing too many steps up to cabin and path was a little rough in places it was absolutely beautiful!!! Very clean but the wifi was not so great! Its true you should absolutely have a 4wd or awd getting up that path 😆 my mdx worked like a charm! Loved our stay!

This is our second stay at the cabin. We have family in the area and this is our go-to vacation house. The views are just wonderful. Even family that came to visit said “Y’all have quite a view.” The house has all you need for a comfortable stay. Clean and welcoming. Our host was very responsive if we had questions. We saw deer 🦌, turkeys 🦃, and baby skunks with Mamma. When we visit we take advantage of the mill's wonderful simple fixings. We also had fun fishing and visiting wineries close by. Again, as many have mentioned, the driveway is straight up a mountain ⛰️. Awd or 4x4 recommend. We have a Sienna AWD and it didn't have a problem. Thanks again Pam for a great stay!

Great peaceful location. Very private! You will definitely need a 4 wheel drive vehicle to access this property! Views are great! We loved the home and the property! We will definitely return here.

This property is in a great location for access to the Blue Ridge Parkway. You must follow the WAZE app to find the property as google maps is incorrect. The driveway is very steep, so a 4WD is essential, especially if there is rain, snow or ice. We were a family of 6 adults and the bedrooms were spacious and we each had a bathroom. There is a large porch on 2 sides of the property with views as far of Pilot Mountain and Winston on a clear day. Very sturdy furniture on the porch for relaxing with a coffee and doing some birdwatching. TV and Wi-Fi worked well so we enjoyed some World Cup Soccer games during our stay. It was very cozy and clean with a fairly well equipped kitchen for preparing meals. Despite a couple of maintenance issues, this is a pleasant house with room for larger groups and we recommend anyone to visit.

We really enjoyed staying here. The view from the cabin was amazing. The cabin was very spacious. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook Thanksgiving dinner. We wanted to stay here longer.

This property was just amazing. Yes we had a 4 wheel drive and did have to use it to get there. Our family had to park away from the house but it was all good. We put them in our truck and climbed that hill to the top. Thanks for the family memories we made this weekend. ❤️

We booked this property for my sons graduation from Virginia Tech even though it was an hour away from campus. We were so glad we did! The cabin was beautiful inside and had a spectacular view from top of the mountain. The property was clean and well stocked. The breakdown of bedrooms and baths worked perfectly for our family dynamic in attendance. I have to say the mattresses on the beds were the most comfortable we have experienced in any properties of places we have stayed over the last 4 years between home and Blacksburg. The owners were very helpful in answering any questions I had (and there were alot) leading up to our stay. I will say their recommendation for a 4 wheel drive vehicle is spot on . We had a pretty substantial amount of rain on Thursday and Friday so the 4 wheel drive came in handy. Can't wait to stay here again the next time our travels allow.

My only regret was not planning a longer stay! Cabin was immaculately clean. Views were breathtaking (when the fog lifted). Quiet, remote neighborhood (plan meals carefully-there's no real "quick dash" to a supermarket). They're not kidding about using Waze to navigate there or needing 4-wheel or all-wheel drive to make it up the driveway (I recommend planning arrival for daytime so you can watch out for ruts and gulley-washes!..for the record, I made it up in my AWD CRV in L1 gear). Beds were exceedlingly comfortable (better than a high end hotel--seriously). Kitchen had everything and then some for food preparation (you might want to bring sharp knives, though). Internet was plenty fast when needed. Plan on about 25-45 minute drive to attractions. Owner very friendly. I highly recommend Black Bear Retreat! One more tip: wave your hand over the front door lock to make the numbers light up so you can enter the code, as it's motion activated.
