GOOD LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the Bear's Lair the week after Christmas. We were very fortunate to find such a nice cabin for our first stay in a mountain cabin. The cabin was clean and the view was beautiful. We especially liked the location of the cabin which is between Blue Ridge and Ellijah. Both had quaint downtowns which were lovely. Many scenic drives are close by too. Another great thing is that Ed was always reachable for any questions, concerns, or recommendations. Thanks so much!

THE VIEWS WERE WONDERFUL, COME WHEN IT IS NOT CROWDED THOUGH

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I stayed over 4th of July 2014. Ed was wonderful and helpful at each step. The cabin was clean and inviting and the views were fabulous. The issues we had during our stay couldn't really be helped by anyone. I will admit to being far more of a city/suburb girl in my upbringing and while I love the outdoors and wilderness living, the drive up an down the mountain to and from the cabin was terrifying for me. It was beautiful with the covered bridges and lake views... if you could stop to look and not worry about getting stuck or hitting someone. If you are driving/renting a car, go for the SUV or sturdy 4 wheel drive (our compact car did ok but it was very rough going). The mountain was very crowded, not surprising for 4th of July and the mild weather, which had a negative impact on the surroundings. Nothing that could be helped, and everyone we met was polite and friendly, just difficult to share the road and the surroundings with that many people. Inside the cabin it was peaceful but out on the deck the noise was ever present. All the other vehicles, ATVs, and golf carts made driving difficult, nice as everyone was about it. I love the size of the cabin and how it feels inside (emphasis on the views!) The oven looks to be as old as I am and has no lights or indicators so cooking was an experiment for me. Sort of funny so long as you aren't looking to eat too quickly =) but otherwise the kitchen was great. The dial up- wifi internet is nice to have to get an e-mail or two, but it was just too slow to keep up with modern use (watching videos, downloading content, connecting to larger websites took hours if you could get it at all) but cell phone reception was superb. The TV was also a bit of a let down (maybe 10 local channels) but most of the time I want to watch the views not a TV in this place. Nighttime though, real cable would have been nice. Of a personal preference, much as I loved the views in the larger bedroom, there was no way to block the morning sun with just the blinds so we couldn't sleep there. I'm very light sensitive and as early as the sun comes up I couldn't keep myself at rest. The smaller bedroom had some drapes and with an eye mask I was able to sleep at least until 7, and the lower room had no windows at all so I would retreat down there before I got too cranky. Adding drapes would be nice. Most wildlife was hidden but the surrounding park is fantastic. There is a lot to do or just in stay and relax.

OUR WONDERFUL TIME AT ED'S CHERRY LOG CABIN!

OUR WONDERFUL TIME AT ED'S CHERRY LOG CABIN!
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed during May, 2013; We, absolutely, had the most wonderful experience, staying in this cabin, and Ed Garcia is the greatest, in making one's stay in this beautifully landscaped and mountain view area, the most fantastic stay. The cabin is impeccable in that when you even, first,, enter the cabin, it is like entering a 5+ star hotel in cleanliness, beauty, warmth, inside, and when you walk in the front door, you can see this plus you can look thru to the to the BEAUTIFUL
mountains staring you right in the face....Walk out onto the covered deck and all the amenities are immediately present with comfortable rocking chairs in which you can sit and look at that forever changing, beautiful mountain view, PLUS, the wonderful hot tub from which you can still sit, soak and enjoy the FANTASTIC view! The options are unlimited to activities in which you can participate, "if" activity is what you desire from "fun' filled opportunities such as tubing, riding the open air train, shopping, wonderful restaurants, and just being able to walk in this beautiful area! One's options are limitless. Ed, we enjoyed your cabin so very much and look forward to staying there, again, and frequently, when available. Thank you, for honoring your listing to be a "TRUE" AND HONEST" advertisement, It is all and more than you even mention in your blog. We would recommend and do to any who ask for a reference or read these reviews. God Bless you and your family. Thanks, again.

TERRIFIC CHRISTMAS VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
First off, let me say that the owner was terrific. Always immediately available via email to answer questions. Made sure we got there okay on the first day. Gave great advice on where to go and what to do.

Second, the cabin. What a great cabin and what a great view. You'll love sitting in the hot tub, looking out into the mountains... not at other cabins or thick trees. The amenities were great, the location is great, the drive was fine in a Corolla.

All in all... this is a great rental, a great owner, and a great vacation spot to get away from it all. We will be back soon!

BEST VIEW ON MOUNTAIN!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and myself went to this cabin for a MUCH needed vacation after a long HOT summer in Florida. I will emphasize this, as you travel up the mountain to get to the cabin you notice MANY other cabins which have views of basically the surrounding trees and the "interior" portions of the mountain. HOWEVER, once you turn down the small road that leads to this cabin you are immediately in what appears to be a wide open clearing on the mountain. As enter the cabin you can see the back porch through the glass doors and windows. It is as you walk towards the back porch through the spacious and beautiful interior of the cabin that you realize just how open the space around the cabin is. Once you step onto the porch you are met with breathtaking views of the treetops below and mountains in the distance and blue sky above. TRULY AWESOME!!!!!

The cabin itself has everything you could ask for. The best is spending the day traveling through Blue Ridge or Ellijay or seeing waterfalls or just staying inside the cabin and relaxing. Then as your day comes to an end you can relax in the hot tub and soak in the beautiful views from the back porch. I routinely used the hot tub to ease my mind and my body after a day of hiking.

Ed was available to answer any and all questions. Very friendly and professional.

I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS CABIN FOR ANYONE LOOKING FOR A GREAT PLACE TO RETURN TO AFTER EXPLORING THE NORTHERN GEORGIA MOUNTAINS.

A WEEK IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Maria and I came up from Florida to view the mountains, lakes and streams and to visit Helen Georgia, that famous Alpine Village nestled in a small valley not too far south of the North Carolina Line. We almost didn't do or see any of the things we started out to do and it was because of THE CABIN~~~Better known among its afficianados as "The Bears Lair"!
Beautifully appointed, situated on the top of a small mountain with a view of distant mountains and valleys. The Hot tub on the porch was a delight we shared every morning as soon as we got out of one of the most comfortable beds we had ever slept in. Those distant mountains early in the morning while enjoying a cup of coffee and sitting in the tub was the best way ever to start the day~~ needless to say it became a morning ritual! We did force ourselves to leave THE CABIN and do a bit of sightseeing but the return to our cabin in the afternoons was as pleasurable as the touring. Fully equipped for preparing our own meals and relaxing in the evenings in front of the telly or back out on the porch in the tub to watch nightfall over those majestic mountains. On our last day I watched a huge mother bear and her three roly poly cubs walking around the front of THE CABIN eyeing the trash can and wondering what goodies it might contain..I must have made a small noise as I moved the curtain away from the front door to get a better view..Mom huffed a couple of times and she and her cubs left at a rolling gait that quickly took them away from view. Our week at THE CABIN was over much too soon but we have promised ourselves to return to these pristine forests and let this wonderful mountain top cabin do its magic as it melts away tensions, worries and anxieties. We honestly hated to leave this beautiful and peaceful mountain top retreat!!
