Beautiful views of both the river and the woods. The cabin inside is so warm and rich, it truly is comforting for the whole family.
We rented this cabin for "Cousins Weekend". It was a pretty good place to meet-halfway between Atlanta and Philadelphia. The cabin is amazing! There was plenty of space for the four of us. We each had our own bed. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking. We enjoyed walking along the river, sitting outside in the chairs, and the beauty of the leaves, though most had already fallen. The cabin is pretty secluded. The only life we saw was a skunk, a killer possum, two dear, and a pride of cats. We did arrive late - 10:30 pm and had a little trouble finding the cabin. The directions were off a bit as it said to find the red gate with "private" signs. The signs are actually located after entering through the gate and can't be seen at night. That wouldn't have been a big issue except that there are about seven red gates along the road. There is a sign at the gate that says something like "End state maintained road"-that's the gate you want. Basically, drive until you can't go any more, then enter the code to open the lock to go through the gate. That was literally our only issue, but coincidently both sets of cousins were lost looking for the right red gate at the same time. We found each other lost in the woods and conquered the "case of the mystery gate" together. Book this cabin! You will love it.
The property owner was prompt answering questions. It's a very private location and good for kayaking the new river or riding the New River Trail, with entry points close by. Didn't know if we should go with the insurance or extra temporary charge on our card. We went with the insurance, but if we stayed again, we would just do the temporary charge. Only negative was having to open and close the gate when entering and exiting the area.
My family and I enjoyed our stay at the Bear's Lair. The cabin is as advertised, Lynn thought of everything. We cooked several meals during our stay, the kitchen had everything we needed....just add food ;)
The cabin sits on a private lot overlooking the river. The river was a bit high during our stay and it rained some so we weren't able to do any "river sitting". My husband and our three children did find a day to fish from the river bank.
During the rainy days we played games, completed a puzzle, read and watched a dvd....all available at the cabin.
I would recommend brining your favorite CDs or a Bluetooth receiver to play your favorite tunes. We weren't able to pick up any radio stations. There are CDs at the cabin but they might not fit your style.
Overall the cabin met our needs and was exactly what we wanted....a secluded cabin in the woods on the river "off the grid". No cable, no wifi...just each other. It was perfect :)
Lynne was outstanding. I could not have asked for anything more. Quick, responsive, informative and a true family professional. I want to stay again. Documents and information was completed online and via voice. Simple and easy process. Home/Cabin was clean and provide all necessary supplies and equipment. I recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away and relax and unwind. What a wonderful experience. Don't bring your cell phone it won't work. Isn't that why you come there. :) Thank you.
Bear's Lair cabin is fantastic. Well equipped, remote and peaceful, but close enough to shops/entertainment for kids and adults alike.
During a stay for one week, we were not bothered by insects at all, which was surprising given how close to the water the cabin is. Lots of wildlife and the New River is just wonderful.
I would recommend this to friends and would like to go back.
Thanks to Lynne and Larry for having us.
