Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to get away and spend some quiet, relaxing time with our family. The cabin had everything we needed. This time of year (April) we were able to enjoy the deck with that perfect view pretty much all day. Also within 30 miles all around, are great little local restaurants and wineries that we enjoyed. A great way to truly enjoy God's creation.

Great family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We met one of our sons and his family and had a fabulous time at this guest friendly get away. It is halfway between Chattanooga, TN and Fairfax, VA. We have rented a lot of cabins, but this was one of the best. So much was done to make it a convenient and homey place to stay. Lynne and Larry were very helpful before, during and after our stay.

A Blast and A Half

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you "cousins" for your nice review! I appreciate your advice and have changed my directions to read "at the very end of the state maintained road" and "drive until you can't go anymore". I enjoyed reading your comments in our guest book, so glad you enjoyed our cabin getaway :) We would love to have you back to the cabin for your next reunion. Don't forget to ask about our returning guests discount! Lynne and Larry

The property was as described and pictured on HomeAway.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Woodsy private retreat

  • 4 of 5

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 :)
