About Don Rucker

We live in Summerville, South Carolina. But, the sweet spot for us is Maggie Valley, North Carolina.

Don Rucker purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Don Rucker chose Maggie Valley/Waynesville Area

Terri and I wanted a great view without having to drive up a mountain road to enjoy it. We ride a Harley Davidson so having a paved access road is very important.

What makes this cabin unique

Soco Mountain View!! Conveniently located near the Blue Ridge Parkway and the National Park.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at the Bear Den. It was the perfect get away for our 10 year wedding Anniversary. We loved the comfy bed & couch & giant TV. We also enjoyed the hottub which relaxed our muscles after a full day of skiing. Thank you for sharing your home on VRBO. Keren & Michael P.S. We enjoyed all the pictures too! You are so artistic!

Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Very enjoyable stay, beautiful views from the balcony sitting relaxing on the porch swing. Plenty of room for 4 adults with all the amenities of home. The lane is nicely paved just a little tricky to maneuver on a motorcycle. Will definitely stay here again.. The Rieck's

Very nice and comfortable! Great view!

  • 5 of 5

The Bear Den is very nice and well maintained. It was well stocked and very clean. We couldn't stay off the porch enjoying the view and the weather. We were visited by many birds, hummingbirds and rabbits every day. And early one morning I saw a large elk walking across the edge of the yard!

The day before our departure, Don let me know that no one was coming in the day of our departure and offered a late check out if we wanted it. What a pleasant surprise and generous offer!

We will definitely return and recommend this great find again!

Thanks, Don!

The Bear's Den was just right for our family of 5. The porch and swimg were great.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the hot tub after a day of hiking. The only down side is the proximity of the main road through Maggie Valley. The road noise distracted from the tranquility of the swing and beautiful views. Our family enjoyed grilling and the picnic table out back and playing cards at the kitchen table. The cabin was just the right size for us.

The hot tub was great and the view from the back porch was very peaceful. Loved the location as well. Maggie Valley is a very nice little town and very close to the Smoky Mountains.
