About Rick Taylor
We spend most of our summer time in the cabin and love to take in a little snow in the winter as well as we live in Florida the rest of the time. The cabin is both secluded and cozy, yet easily accessible during snowy times. You will find all of the comforts of home there. it feels and looks like a true mountain lodge.
Rick Taylor purchased this Cabin in 2012

Great Stay, Felt Like Home.
We were very pleased with our stay at Dancing Bear. We have stayed at a multitude of Airbnb's/VRBO's, and they often feel a bit sterile when they are clearly simple commercial ventures. The feel of this place was very homey and reflective of the listings indication that this is an actively used second home. The place is even more beautiful than the pictures show. Highly recommended.
Great weekend stay in the mountains!
We had a wonderful time staying at the dancing bear. The owner was very helpful and the house was clean, cozy and a great place to relax! We will hopefully be back soon!
A beautiful and welcoming home!
We had such an amazing time at this beautiful home. We definitely want to come back!
Dancing Bear delightful!
If you're looking for the quintessential cabin stay that surpasses all your wants & needs, Dancing Bear is the place for you. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations - also, dont let the double beds setup in the third bedroom fool you, in case you have 3 couples or need 3 full bedrooms - pushed together they form a big comfy queen bed perfect for any couple. The grounds are exquisite and come stocked with firewood and an awesome firepit, and the jacuzzi worked perfectly - MUCH needed apres ski. The house comes stocked with all kinds of cleaning supplies, extra soaps, etc anything that you may have left home, linens, etc and the bathrooms and all the little "touches" made this stay wonderful - we will definitely be back next year. Rick was always very responsive and made checking in & out very simple, no big steps or processes to follow that you wouldn't normally in a mountain house. Enjoy Banner Elk, and stay at Dancing Bear Lodge - it really will be a part of your memories!
Enjoyed our stay
Very nice, clean home. Very convenient to Sugar Mountain skiing. We hope to stay again in the future!
Awesome! Therapeutic! Perfect for 70th birthday!
The home is like a museum of art work and crafts with a theme of bears and wildlife. 3 fireplaces to burn away any bad karma. Linens were cozy! Family enjoyed the hot tub! Close to skiing.
