We loved Bear Timbers!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best idea ever for my husband and me plus our dog ... A weekend away from DC (but not too far away for a quick trip) to a cabin with everything we could imagine wanting - fireplace, heat/ac, wifi, tv, grill, hot tub, great kitchen, comfy bed, washer/dryer, bath/shower, with access to a wooded area, canoes and bikes included with life jackets and vests, and a fire pit with free firewood. We enjoyed every aspect of this cabin. We and our dog loved access to the river. It was clean, well decorated, with easy to follow instructions on how to work everything like the grill and hot tub. Id been a little concerned after seeing a review about the neighbors being close, but we didn't really see or hear anyone, so for us the neighbors were definitely a non-issue. It's a normal street with cabins/homes but they aren't right on top of each other. Overall it was a pricier cabin option for the area but for what it offers, it's truly more than a fair price. It was the perfect end to summer.

Only two complaints which were minor and didn't hamper our good time : 1- the grill needed cleaning.

2- there were a lot of dead bugs in the porched in area so we didn't enjoy that space. Both issues can and I'm sure will be quickly resolved.

One tip is that there isn't cell phone service in the area and the cabin is off of a gravel road, so getting in when it's dark at night was doable but tricky - make sure you have the directions saved and don't need the Internet to access them when you get close to the cabin. We did a day trip to Skyline Drive which was about 25 minutes away for the entrance we picked and the rest of the time just relaxed at and around the cabin. Note- there is a drip coffee machine and filters- just bring the coffee!

I found the managers to be extremely responsive and on top of things- and they were kind enough to give us a late check out since no one was coming the following day.

We really loved our visit to the cabin and highly recommend it.

Clean, beautiful, well-appointed and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Bottom line - it's exactly as advertised. Modern. Up-to-date. Clean!!!! Well-appointed with everything you need except groceries. Everything works and there isn't anything that makes you think, "Oh, I don't want to touch that." Even the yard is nicely landscaped!

Having been to a number of cabins in the area over the years, Bear Timbers is one of the best. Easy to access (even in a small 2-wheel drive car!) and close enough to town that you can go get groceries without it being a major trip, but well situated away from main roads so it's nice and quiet. The cabin itself is newly built (2013) with great appliances - fridge has filtered water through the door and an icemaker, stove/range is gas and works great, dishwasher is full-size. Full size washer/dryer are a little loud, but get the job done well. Even the TVs are "smart TVs" that you can use to access Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc. (Not that you will really spend time watching TV.... because... hot tub!) Gas grill on the deck is connected to an LP line, so no fussing with propane tanks or running out of gas mid-bbq. Easy to use (even for a novice!) and has an automatic shut off in case you forget to turn it off - yay for safety! Gas fireplace ("wood burning stove" style, but gas) is convenient and easy to use if it's cold. Central heat/ac works great and the thermostat doesn't take an engineering degree to operate - just push the up/down arrows to make it warmer or cooler. Decor is "cabin-y" but blessedly simple - not a bunch of frilly curtains and pillows - nice (very comfy) leather sofa and love seat, wooden table, wooden blinds, and gorgeous hardwood floors. Beds are "firm" but not uncomfortable. If you prefer very soft/squishy pillows then bring one. Sheets and towels are provided and are soft/comfortable - nothing threadbare or rough like you get in hotels sometimes. There's a fully-screen porch as well as an open deck area with a hot tub that was divine. Easy to operate (push button for jets. Push button for lights. Push up/down buttons to adjust temp) and clean.

The only thing I didn't totally love was the very soft water that made it hard to rinse conditioner out of my hair. More water pressure in the shower would help that a little, but that was the only thing that was anything short of ideal.

I will definitely come back and stay here again. I brought my two dogs and they loved running around the grassy area down by the river and just lounging on the deck while I soaked in the hot tub

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Bear Timbers Cabin was a perfect choice for a getaway weekend! We could not have asked for a more relaxing and comfortable location. Clean, well appointed, and convenient to many activities. Don't let the picture fool you. This is a spacious cabin with plenty of room for a large family.

Nice Cabin and property

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was nice, clean and well stocked. Hot tub is awesome and all the fire wood you can burn is an excellent bonus. The bad news: The neighbors (not shown in any of the advertising photos) are in very close vicinity with no privacy between the cabins or porches. We will probably not return to this cabin for that reason.

Owner's Response: The cabin does have neighbors not too far away. That's why we have planted thick, fast-growing trees around the borders of the property. They are still only a few years old but soon will provide thick screening and privacy.

Beautiful cabin!

  • 4 of 5

The bear timbers was such a great getaway and was very clean. Hot tub was wonderful and clean and the fire pit was perfect size for us to have a pallet fire. We also were able to bring all three of our dogs for a price but it was well worth the money because we didn't have to pay for boarding. They enjoyed the grass and the space. Great amenities with the bikes, and canoes near the river. A few flaws we had were the beds were uncomfortable and we could not regulate the temperature of the cabin to below 70.
