Amazing Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Bear Lake. The house was beautiful, clean, and fully stocked with everything we needed. There is an amazing stream and waterfall that runs right next to the cabin. Our kids loved playing in the stream during the day and we loved listening to it at night. The outdoor fireplace was great for roasting smores during the cool mountain nights. In addition to a great house, the resort property was amazing as well. We had a great time hiking, searching for tadpoles in the lake at Mill Pond, swimming in the pool, and kayaking on the lake. All in all, one of our best family vacations to date!

My Stay at Bear Lake Reserve

  • 4 of 5

We found the cabin and the area to be absolutely beautiful! The grounds are immpeciable, the roads can be a little trecherous past dark. The cabin has a very relaxing porch and is equiped with everything you need. We normally do not stay in community's like this, because we like the solitude of being away from other cabins. We however found this locatin very tranqil, quite and relaxing. The sky is absolutely beautiful at night. The gentelmen whom we encountered at the welcome center when you arrived and during our stay, were more than welcoming and willing to make suggestions. The only complaint I would have would be the folks whom work down at the club house were not very warm or friendly. We went down once when we first arrived and felt extremely unwelcomed and uncomfortable. We decided to go to dinner one night, we made a reservation but when we arrived again we felt less than welcomed, so we chose to leave. Its was much nicer to make dinner and have it on the porch at the cabin. I would definately return to the cabin. I also think you should fix the entertainment system to work for dummies. We had a very difficult time getting it to work and we were never able to use the television in the Master Bedroom, at all. All in all we appreciated the cabin

very much and had a very calm, quite, relaxing stay. Thank you

Owner's Response: Most of our guests rave about the staff both at the Greeters Cottage and the Lake Club. We have notified the Operations Management about the comment. As to the entertainment center operation, we have changed satillite providers and have new, clear instructions on use in the notebook labeled "Welcome to Our Cottage".

Water, water, water: Surround yourself in awesomeness on Bear Creek Lake, a 497 acre secluded mountain lake: kayak, canoe, float, swim, ski, rent a pontoon boat, or bring your own boat. With over 13 miles of shoreline there are boulders to jump from, islands to explore, waterfalls to climb, and photo ops. Relax at Laughing Trout Camp-in the lakefront timber-framed pavilion, fireplace, kitchen, 2 full baths, picnic, 2 beaches. Ready for adventure? Tube the rushing Caney Fork Creek--about an hour of brisk mini rapids whisks you to the Tuckasegee River, where we'll be glad to drive you start again, or warm up in the Sundrops hot tub.
