Beautiful, clean, spacious cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

Do not hesitate to rent this cabin! The owners had excellent communication and answered questions promptly. The property is beautiful and EXTREMELY clean. I brought Clorox wipes (I always do when traveling) and did not need them. All of the beds were very comfortable, even the bunk beds! We loved all of the upgraded fixtures throughout the cabin. It was well stocked with things that are not normally found in a rental. I can't think of anything that could be improved!!! They did not skimp when furnishing this cabin. Everything is beautiful, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. The kids had so much fun playing by the lake. Thank you for a wonderful Spring Break!

Our family absolutely enjoyed our four days stay at this cabin. It was plenty large enough for all twelve of us. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen well-stocked, the views were spectacular. We'd definitely book this rental again!!

Beautiful Cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

We spend a weekend in the mountains at a cabin every year with friends... this one was by far the best one yet! Beautiful cabin, secluded with plenty of room for the kids to play outside.

Ironman CHOO 2016

  • 5 of 5

My family and I greatly enjoyed our stay at Bears Den Cabin! My husband participated in Ironman Chattanooga on Sunday, September 25th and though we experienced record temperatures in Chattanooga the entire experience was great! The house allowed us ample room to spread out and relax after his race as well as to enjoy some football games on tv the day before. My in-laws want to return to the cabin just for a vacation sometime in cooler temps so we can enjoy the amazing hot tub as well!

our stay at Bears Den

  • 5 of 5

We get the whole family together each year for our summer vacation. This is out third year and we have stayed in some awesome places. After our trip to Bears Den we asked the family which year was the best. Most of us said that the Bears Den vacation was the best. The Cabin fit us very well and the view was amazing. The lake in the picture by the cabin is beautiful but small and not really good for swimming. I would recommend a must do hike close to the cabin in DeSoto State park. Hike down to the swimming hole at the Desoto Falls. The water is fantastic. We had fun in Chattanooga which was close to the cabin. The cabin was well equipped. We ate most of our meals on a huge table that was outside on the deck that surrounded the cabin on three sides. There was a cornhole game supplied with the cabin that we all enjoyed very much. You can't beat playing while waiting for your meals to be prepared. It would have been nice to have a small boat to use on the lake but I suppose there may be liability issues. This was a fantastic trip and I would recommend this rental to everyone.

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Property was gorgeous and just breathtaking. If you are looking to relax, this is the place to do it! We swam in the lake and the kids were able to catch fish. To actually go do anything was always a long drive. Loved Thatchers restaurant and White water rafting was our favorite!
