Beautiful mountain cabin! A week away filled with relaxation, beauty, and wonderful memories!

  • 5 of 5

The Bear's Lair was just the perfect cabin we were hoping for. We could relax on the covered deck and just sit in the swing or soak in the hot tub and enjoy beautiful scenic mountains from the back porch. We came a little early to see the fall color, but everything was so beautiful that we really didn't miss it. We loved the gas fireplace in the early mornings. The beds were so comfortable. We cooked at the cabin most nights and the kitchen was well stocked and perfect.

The Blue Ridge Scenic Railroad train ride was the highlight of our trip. Definitely a must do. Lots of shops to visit- something for everyone. Kayaking down the river was amazing- my first time in a kayak but it won't be my last. We saw a play put on by the local community theater group. Excellent! A scenic drive to waterfalls, the semi-annual Art in the Park, and the high ropes course with The Blue Ridge Adventure Company also made our trip lots of fun.

Thank you Ed for sharing your beautiful cabin with us. We will be back!

Nice Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was just as advertised; it had everything we needed for an excellent weekend. Ed was gracious in helping en every way. The snow presented a challenge in seeing the sights, but the view from the living room and hot tub made leaving the cabin seem dumb. If we get back to N. Ga, will certainly look up Ed.

Thanks for all your help.

In the Woods for Sure

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful thanksgiving at the cabin. All the comforts of home, and very clean. Us Florida gals found the back way in (mile marker 22) a little calmer than coming in the scenic route, but that's just us. I'd stay again in a heartbeat. Ed was very quick to respond to any calls which I can't say for other places I've stayed.

Such a peaceful, relaxing, perfect fall getaway

  • 5 of 5

Ed was great! He returned all calls promptly and made sure we had everything we needed! My husband and I could not have had a better experience! Our vacation to the cabin was just what we were looking for! The cabin was very clean and cozy. It had everything we needed from cooking supplies to towels and soap. The bed was very comfortable and we slept great. Our favorite thing at the cabin was the hot tub which we enjoyed each day we were there! The view was wonderful and we felt like we were the only ones on the mountain. It was perfect! We even enjoyed a game of chess and the gas fireplace in the evening. There were brochures available at the cabin of things to do in Blue Ridge which came in handy because we used the maps provided to hike a couple different trails. The trees had all changed colors but the leaves hadn’t fallen yet when we went and it was breath taking seeing all the beautiful vibrant fall foliage! I highly recommend staying here and we would love to return next fall for a peaceful, relaxing getaway!
