Your mountain retreat awaits at Bear Lake Reserve. Come enjoy two resorts for the price of one.

Reserve your accommodations for this mountain cottage through Sundog Places and enjoy amenities of Bear Lake Reserve, a 2,000 acre mountain resort, plus Sundog's 2 acre private lake camp.

'HAPPY BEARS COTTAGE' offers long distance views of Cedar Cliff and layers of Blue Ridge. From the large covered porch, watch the kids frolic in the meadow below, take comfortable strolls on the walking trails. The mountain inspired decor offers spacious settings for family time, making memories or just relaxing. Decorated bedrooms offer a king in master, with queen or two singles in the upstairs suites. Two fireplaces, luxury appointments, and lots of room assure your bears will be happy, too!

Bear Lake Reserve [BLR] is located on Bear Creek Lake, ('Bear Lake'), in Tuckasegee, NC. It boasts waterfalls, fishing pond, hiking, golf, fire pits for s'mores and a luxuriously appointed clubhouse. Enjoy dining at the Lake Lure Restaurant, lounge at the pool or hot tub. Movie nights in the theatre, indoor play areas, full bar, media room, library, gym, sauna, and steam round out a full spectrum of resort activities.

Sundog’s “Laughing Trout Camp” offer additional Smoky Mountain places to add adventures to your mountain vacation. There is something for everyone... Meanwhile, dinner's on the grill (or is this the night we're cooking for you?) . Laughing Trout Camp (LTC) provides an easy access to water adventures on Bear Lake. (LTC is on your way and the fun is included in your rental). Travel time from cottage 15 minutes.

Water, water, water: Surround yourself in awesomeness on Bear Creek Lake, a 497 acre secluded mountain lake: kayak, canoe, float, swim, ski, rent a pontoon boat, or bring your own boat. With over 13 miles of shoreline there are boulders to jump from, islands to explore, waterfalls to climb, and photo ops. Relax at Laughing Trout Camp-in the lakefront timber-framed pavilion, fireplace, kitchen, 2 full baths, picnic, 2 beaches. Ready for adventure? Tube the rushing Caney Fork Creek--about an hour of brisk mini rapids whisks you to the Tuckasegee River.

Beautiful Mountain Lake Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We loved every minute of our one week stay at Happy Bears Cottage. We highly recommend Bear Lake Reserve for a quiet retreat amidst stunning beauty. The house is tastefully furnished and well-cared for -- there was ample seating in the living area, a huge dining table & bar stools with seating for ten, bedrooms with amazingly comfortable mattresses, and a nicely appointed gourmet kitchen adequately supplied for cooking for a crowd for the chefs among you. We loved having the large screened porch out back. It provided a safe place for our little ones to play -- with two seating areas for the adults as well. The view from the porch was stunning -- it directly overlooks a well-groomed pond, with views of the mountains beyond it. From the porch, you have easy access to a large, level grassy area around the pond -- perfect for our grandkids to enjoy. And just beyond the pond was the amphitheater area, with an even larger grassy field. This cottage is very close to the main gate, which gave us quick access to the surrounding areas on the days we wanted to explore. There are two small towns (Sylva & Cullowhee) within a 30 minute drive with grocery stores and other necessities. We spent a day at the Biltmore Estate, which is a scenic one-hour drive away. There are lots of outdoor activities available in this general area: rock climbing, hiking, beautiful waterfalls & gem mining (Franklin area), horseback riding, zip-lining & whitewater rafting.
But with the outstanding amenities available at Bear Lake Reserve, you may never leave the resort! Everything was top-notch and well-groomed -- from the incredible mountaintop golf course with stunning long range views, to the lake club area with its two pool areas & gorgeous views of the lake (one infinity pool for adults & one kiddie pool with slide), plus the amenities at the lake club (theatre room, library, kids' playroom, restaurant & café, fitness center), in addition to the marina area with various boat rentals, as well as the trout pond pavilion with catch & release fishing in their stocked pond, to the Bear Creek Park area with nature trails, fire pits & camp areas for family adventures -- there are so many activities to enjoy in this resort community! Do be aware that this particular cottage is not suited for anyone with limited mobility -- there is a steep slope with stone steps from the small parking pad to the front entrance. However, I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone else -- we loved it!!

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5
We booked this cottage having only seen the web photos. Happy to say it is as good as it looks. The house was beautiful inside and out, and we spent a lot of time in front of the fireplace on the screened in deck. There were beautiful mountain views and a little pond in the back that the kids enjoyed. Our 14 year old pug also had a great time. We especially liked the location--it was tucked away, yet still close to the entrance gate and very accessible to Sylva and other towns. There is also a very pleasant hiking trail that starts on the other side of the driveway. Highly recommended!

Great Family Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
First of all, the pictures do not do this house justice. The house is absolutely beautiful, very tastefully decorated and very welcoming & comfy!! The view from the back porch is breathtaking, would love to see it in the FAll! We spent every morning enjoying the mountain views with our coffee and every evening we did the same with our wine!! We played Euchre on the bar table with our two teenage daughters and enjoyed the ability to just grill & chill in this lovely home away from home!
The Bear Lake Reserve pool & clubhouse is stunning overlooking the lake. We kayaked in the clear clear lake as well as relaxed with our books by the serene pool. We went into both Sylva & Cashiers and went rafting on the Tuckaseegee, which was big fun!
Overall, our family of four agreed this was in our top 2 family vacations of all time, second only to Aruba!
If you haven't experienced this part of the country you must, it was fun, relaxing, rejuvenating and just what this busy family of four needed!

Nice property, great management

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay here as we have 4 kids and they were able to play in the meadow beneath this cabin. Management was very responsive to any requests we made. We will stay here again.

Beautiful home in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in this beautiful home! It rained most of the weekend, so we didn't get to enjoy the outdoors as we had hoped. The home was comfortable and beautifully decorated. The setting is breath-taking! We would love to return!
