Bear's Lair Cabin on New River~ Relax in Rustic Elegance~
average rating of 4.87234 based on 47 reviews
Murfreesboro, Tn

Gorgeous cabin in the woods on the river!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took our eleven year-old niece with us to visit my daughter and grandchildren in Rockville, VA, and wanted to find a spot to spend a few days on the river to break up the monotony of the long drive from Murfreesboro, Tn. We couldn't have chosen a better cabin for our riverside layover in a million years! The view of the water from the cabin and property was so peaceful, and we spent HOURS out in the New River's gentle current watching Canada geese and other birds on the water. The river is shallow, so kids can have a ball looking for treasures near the bank, and yet its current is strong enough to keep an adult interested. The cabin itself is beautifully appointed, with everything your family will ever want or need for your stay. We cooked out on the gas grill, played games on the deck tables, and lounged on the Adirondack chairs beside the river. There's a general store a short drive from the property, and the landscaped lawn is separated from neighbors by beautiful woods. This is the nicest place we've stayed at, and we highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get away from it all. At first, we were a little disappointed that there is no TV reception, and no wifi or internet access at the cabin. But after an hour, we had forgotten all about our electronics addictions. Spending three nights away from the news was a hidden blessing in disguise. It was SO nice to leave all of that chaos behind for a few nights. If you book an outing to Bear's Lair, make sure you check out the photo book of the owners' clearing the land and building the cabin from the ground up! It's an amazing transformation! You'll love it here, I promise!

perfect river setting

This is a perfect river setting. The river is just beautiful with a gentle slope down to it. The cabin in the woods is very private and was great for our getaway weekend. Definitely recommend!!

We came to be close to a trail race and enjoyed the seclusion of the cabin with an enchanting view of the New River. Wish we could have stayed longer.
