A large private bridge over roaring Jonathan Creek takes you to the entrnace of the drive up Seay Mountain to Bear Pause Cabin. The area is very private and wooded, the gravel road winds up the mountain exposing magnificent views. The road is hard packed gravel and has a steady grade, never getting very steep. A 2-wheel drive vehicle can handle if fine, except in icy weather. The 2 bedroom/2bath modern cabin is lush with plantings and flowers. The porch stays shaded and cool because of the higher altitude. The beautiful log cabin has been beautifully crafted inside and out.
The area is loaded with craft, antique and gift shops. The great outdoors offers horseback riding, golf on mountain courses, trout fishing in streams, white water rafting and scenic drives. Snow skiing and tubing is available for the entire family at Cataloochee Ski Area. Nightlife includes everything from Jazz to Bluegrass, clogging or dinner entertainment.
Bear Pause Cabin is just a short drive to the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, The Biltmore Estate in Asheville, Cherokee Indian Reservation and Harrah's Casino and historic dowtown Waynesville.
