All you really need to bring here are your clothes

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bama Bear Den for the month of May while my husband was working in Tuscaloosa. What a great place, Linda was an awesome host and has thought of everything you could need while visiting. The surrounding neighborhood is quite lovely and I felt very safe there, as I was by myself during the days. The place is clean and stays pretty cool even with just a window unit because it is secluded under the trees. The water feature in the yard is very peaceful and makes the porch sitting even more inviting. You can tell they worked hard on setting that up. If you are a football fan you will love this place, it is beautifully decorated in true Crimson Tide style.

The dog and I found plenty to do. If you are in town for anything beyond a ball game weekend, you should check out Hurricane Creek Park about ten minutes away. We also had a great time on the weekends going to Lake Lurleen, and the Lock parks on Holt Lake. The area really is beautiful with rolling hills, river, lakes, bicycle trails, and plenty of other things to do if you aren't there for college or sports. Close to shopping also. I also found my new favorite thrift store just a few miles away.

Warm and inviting, Linda is a gracious host and went out of her way to make our stay the best possible. Easy access to everything you need. Yet tucked away so you feel secluded.

Awesome Place! I am now officially spolied!!!

  • 5 of 5

Bama Bear Den is one of the most peaceful places we have ever stayed. The area is close to everything, however you feel like you are in your own oasis. The amenities provided give a five star hotel a run for the money. I'm serious when I say I am officially spoiled, the thoughtfulness of the small things really shine through!! It really is like coming home! I cannot wait to come back and stay with what feels like friends. Thank you so much!!!
