Condominium has vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, stone fireplace, granite countertops, wood floors and lots of large windows in every room. Also, conveniently located just above the Lake Club with 2 pools, 2 Jacuzzis, restaurant and bar. Mountain Lodge condo is the closest accommodation to the Lake.

Our home was thoughtfully planned out by an interior designer to be comfortable and beautiful while incorporating elements of nature to accent the beauty that surrounds Bear Lake. The 2 bedrooms have king size beds. The loft doubles as a TV area and sleeps 3 with a twin day bed, trundle and a large pull out chair/twin bed.

Bear Lake Community has many offerings. Inside the gated community are miles of hiking trails, camp sites, Jack Nicklaus Design golf course, tennis courts, outdoor fireplaces, stocked trout pond and pavilion for family gatherings. The Lake Club, which our home overlooks and is a short walking distance, has a restaurant and bar for dining in or poolside dining.

About Lori Brown

Over the last 20 years, my husband and I have vacationed many places. Our vacations always seem to revolve around the outdoors and water. Scuba diving, boating, fishing, skiing, ect. We now have children and a dog to vacation with and Bear Lake is perfect for them, too.

Lori Brown purchased this condo in 2007

Why Lori Brown chose North Carolina

We first experienced Bear Lake when it was just an idea and wilderness. We fell in love with the unspoiled beauty of the clear mountain water and rock cliffs above the lake. Bear Lake Reserve has surpassed our expectations. We spend our days in the summer with family and friends at the pools and on the lake waterskiing. Our evenings are relaxing with expertly prepared meals at the club very often taking advantage of the dining on the restaurant deck overlooking the lake. Early mornings usually start with hikes, kayaking, golf or tennis. Winter is about skiing, hiking, kayaking and shopping in Cashiers and Asheville.

What makes this condo unique

One of the benefits of our location is the convenience to the lake and Club. Our condo sits right above the club house with 2 pools, workout facility, dining room and bar.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great condo located close to the amenities

  • 5 of 5

I have to say the accommodations exceeded our expectations and was very comfortable and larger than expected. The location is very close to the Lake Club and was ideal for our family to take advantage of the boating, pool and dining. We really enjoyed sitting on the balcony with views of the lake having our coffee in the mornings . We were unable to explore some of the numerous hiking trails or golf course but will save for next time. As mentioned in other reviews, it is not quickly accessible to the main road so plan on bringing enough provisions for your stay if you don't want to eat at the Lake Club for every meal. Overall, I would give high marks to Loris condo and the property in general and is a great place to really getaway while having plenty of activities to choose from if you wish.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property. Our family stayed here for a long weekend. The reserve, lake, & condo are beautiful. It is quite a drive from the gate, but it is nice being so close to the lake club with all of the amenities. We would definitely like to visit again!

We have already talked about a return visit!

  • 4 of 5

We really, really enjoyed our stay. Best location to be close to the pool which was heated and a huge hit. Rooms were clean and the linens were plentiful- didn't have to bring a beach towel. Well built and quiet in the room with the door closed. The porch was amazing and we used it more than the inside! Bears were sited on 3 separate occassions which was exciting. We came prepared not to have to leave the condo for food, etc which we highly recommend. Unfortunately, there was a wedding that caused the lake club to close on saturday afternoon and we were not able to access the pool or the restaurant. Recommend enquiring ahead for folks staying over the weekend. We rented a pontoon for two hours- perfect! That is all you really need, the lake is small and we had a small child. Dogs allowed:)! It was a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: So good to hear that you enjoyed our home as much as we do! The lake is beautiful and I'm not surprised that the pool was a big hit. My family's favorite spot also, that's why we chose a close location to the club and the lake! Weddings sometimes occupy part of the club but they rarely use both the club and the pool deck. When they do we can usually find other activities like evening hikes or kayak trips or fishing at the trout pond to fill our evenings. Looking forward to having you back! Lori Brown

long drive

  • 2 of 5

just a few things that people should know about this property.

most important is that it is a 20minute drive to the gate house. Then another 15 minutes to Silva or Cashiers. The road traveled inside the resort is very winding and could be dangerous at night. That being said we had planned to go out to dinners during our stay and because of this drive we ate in. The resort was closed so we could not even get dinner at the club house. Golf course was closed also. There is also no cell phone service that we could get on either Verizon or ATT. Just a few incidentals; no paper towels on arrival. bed spread on upstairs bed not clean, bathtub drain upstairs very slow.

It is a lovely condo --well designed and furnished but we would not rent this again.

Gorgeous!! We had such a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We love this condo at Bear Lake Reserve! It was the perfect combination of getting away from it all while still enjoying luxury amenities. The condo is beautifully appointed, two stories with great views from the deck. The Golf club was a quick drive and is worth the gorgeous views. The Lake Club is a great place for dining, swimming and checking out the lake. We took a canoe out and had a nice time, there are also jet skis, kayaks and boats available for rent. Our two year old had such a great time. It was a pleasure working with the owner and rental agency, very kind! We look forward to coming back with friends and family!
