Three Bear Holler
Husband-and-wife duo Marc and Pam Jance moved from their native Michigan to North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains to run the rustic cabins of Three Bear Holler. Each cabin is furnished with a full kitchen, a fireplace, a washer and dryer, and an outdoor porch with rocking chairs. Accents such as antique patchwork quilts and reclaimed hardwood floors add homey touches. There's plenty to do nearby: you can drive on the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway, hike a portion of the Appalachian Trail, or explore the massive Biltmore Estate, former home of George Vanderbilt and current home of several ghosts.
