We live in the Florida Keys and fell in love with western North Carolina. We travel back and forth from our conch house to the Bear Hutt as often as we can. Some say we have the best of both worlds! We hope you enjoy the Bear Hutt as much as we do and come back to visit over and over again.

Jeff & Laura Hutt purchased this cabin in 2004

The Bear Hutt is located close to whitewater rafting, horesback riding, the John Campbell Folk School, and is just a beautiful ride through the Nantahala Gorge. It is close to everything this beautiful area has to offer.

The Bear Hutt and setting is very relaxing. Our favorite activities are building fires in our firepit, hiking, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, taking our motorcycle on scenic drives and just exploring all that the area has to offer.

My boyfriend and I drove down from Chicago and stayed at the bear hut for four nights in March. We had a lovely time hiking in the area and enjoying the great views! The fire pit was also a really fun way to end the day. Owners were super professional and very responsive. Highly recommend this place- also, it's quite close to the Folk school, which is a wonderful place to visit for the day!

great christmas vacation

really enjoyed our stay in the bear hutt with the kids (8 and 10) and dogs (small and medium). we arrived at dark however was easy to find our way up and the grade is not bad. inside is very clean. front porch was a nice place to relax and having the gas grill there was a plus. fireplace heats the main living area and heaters in bed and bath rooms, outside temps got into low 20's and we had no problems staying warm. its a small cabin however i never felt cramped even though we usually stay in larger cabins for our vacations, it was a good fit for the 4 of us.

jeff and laura were always a phone call away when we had questions and really appreciated their hospitality and assistance when needed, the wood work is really nice! wish we had used the outside fire pit but rained enough to keep things too soggy.

also, thank you for finding and sending back the toy we left on accident!

while there we hiked the joyce kilmer memorial forest, visited mingo falls, did ice tubing and few other sites in the area. the drive to each was quite scenic (windy roads, lots of great views) and was around an hour each way to our destinations. side note: on our trip back to florida we stopped in at foxfire museum and heritage center in georgia and if you like stepping back in time i suggest it, missed the guided tour but was fun nonetheless. a walmart and grocery store are short driving distance to the cabin.

Fantastic cabin experience!

Beautiful location, close to so many great activities! Cabin is clean, comfortable, and well-furnished. We spent a week there at prime leaf-watching time and could not have been happier. Easy access, but very private. Close to Nantahala area, John C. Campbell Folk School, Highlands/Cashiers, Bryson City, Blue Ridge Parkway, and Appalachian Trail. We especially appreciated that the owners allow dogs, as our dogs are part of the family. GREAT yard to let your dogs run on their own! We've always had to keep ours leashed or on leads before but that was not necessary at this cabin.

Great rental experience and we highly recommend it!

The most relaxing and peaceful 10 days of my life!

I stayed at the Bear Hutt September 9-19. I can honestly say I did not turn the tv on once in 10 days! The view from the porch was enough entertainment and pleasure for me! The cabin was clean, comfy and quite! For a music writer this place is a dream! A perfect place to clear your head and find some inspiration to create music! Laura and Jeff were on top of everything and made sure my stay was as comfy as possible! Just a tip... Buy some bird food for the feeders! I will be back! I highly recommend this private get away cabin to anyone looking to relax! Take a few minutes at night to have a listen to the sounds of the mountain creatures! It's like a bug symphony! Very cool! Coming from the suburbs of Canada this new for me! Amazing! All I can say is treat yourself! Stay at the Bear Hutt!

Our stay at the Bear Hutt was excellent. The owners are very attentive and make sure the renters have a perfect stay. This is not a huge cabin (2 bedroom), but everything is very clean, comfortable, and in excellent condition. The views are absolutely priceless! You can sit on the front deck in the morning or in the evening and will never get tired of the fabulous view! We would not hesitate renting the Bear Hutt in the future! The Bear Hutt is a beautiful piece of heaven without question.
