So, it is that time of year folks! The weather has warmed up, the berries are in season and so are the Black Bears! If you’re vacationing in Asheville, NC you will stand the chance of seeing these interesting creatures. According to the WNC Nature Center, Black Bears can get over 300 lbs! We have been lucky enough to have a couple of sightings behind our vacation rentals here in Asheville, NC. In fact, not too long ago, one of our guests spotted a bear casually swimming in our pond! How funny!
If you’re looking for a cabin rental in Asheville, don’t be surprised if you come across some wildlife. Black Bears are common around wooded areas and they are very curious creatures. Not to worry though, these inquisitive guys will leave you alone so long as you do the same to them. At our vacation rentals here in Asheville, we tell our guests to be respectful of all wildlife. Make sure you bring your cameras, as you never know what you’ll see!
There are a lot of places to view wildlife. These include areas off of the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Great Smoky Mountains Visitor Center, right here at Asheville Country Cabins, the NC Arboretum, or anywhere in and around Asheville, NC.
