Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Bear Hollow was a dream. The cabin was perfect and Clad, the owner, was just wonderful. We had to evacuate South Florida last minute due to hurricane Irma, and Clad was very quick to respond and accept our request. We were a group of 3 adults and 4 pets and the cabin was just the right size. It was equipped with everything we needed for a pleasant stay.

The nearest city is about 20 minutes away to load up with groceries or any other necessities.

The drive up to the cabin was beautiful! The dirt roads look intimidating at first, but our Prius was able to get up and down the mountain without any issues.

The neighborhood is peaceful and perfect for morning walks. You can easily walk down to the lake (about 10 min walk) and go fishing or even jump in for a swim (if it isn't freezing)

Cell service is to be expected on the top of a mountain. We have AT&T which didn't work but the 3rd adult had t-mobile and he had cell service and internet on his phone the entire time. Clad also mentioned that Verizon receives good service, so on the way to the cabin, we stopped at a Verizon store and picked up a myWi portable wifi box, and were able to stay connected the entire trip. (just in case you would like to stay connected while on your trip)

Again, I can't give enough praise to Clad and our stay! We will definitely be back!!

Perfect eclipse location

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our group of 3 adult eclipse watchers. The friendly owner and community welcomed us for a cookout before the exciting event. We enjoyed day trips to Asheville and the Cherahola skyway from which we took an easy hike to Huckleberry Bald which offers panoramic views of NC and TN. We want to come back for numerous float and kayaking opportunities nearby. The cabin was very clean, comfortable, with a convenient kitchen/dining inside or on the deck. The owner could not have been more accommodating; 5 stars for him too!

Owner's Response: This is a super nice family. I enjoyed having them and they are invited back anytime. The Eclips event was special and it was special to make such good friends.

Small but nice, needs some maintenance.

  • 4 of 5

It's good for up to 4 people. The deck needs to be stained, gutters need to be replaced (drips all over the place) and the trees need to be trimmed, they're all over the deck. And the right side gas feed tube of the grill leaks, causing flames to come up under the grill. Eventually that will burn through the gas line and cause.. bad news.

There is no internet and the 19" TV harkens back to a time we couldn't see anything on tv. But then again that's all in the info and pics and it didn't bother me for a weekend. The wall unit AC works great, the house is secluded but easy to get to, and it's a great value for what it is. It's approximately 20 minutes from downtown Bryson City on a very easy drive down hwy 28 and hwy 74. If you're a mountain biker it's 6 minutes to Tsali. If you're looking for some lake paddling it's 10 minutes to a few differenet launches. If you're going rafting it's about 20 minutes to 4 different rafting companies.

Overall it's a nice place for the money, it could use some updating and a little maintenance though. That being said, I would go back in again.

Quiet Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this quaint cabin for a long weekend. It was cozy and absolutely serene! Kitchen had all the cooking utensils we needed and the size of the cabin was great for 3 adults. It is up on a hill with a long winding gravel drive so I was glad we brought our 4x4 truck. I'd recommend AWD or 4wheeldrive. The location is just 10 minutes or so from Bryson City and very close to Fontana Lake and the river. Also, there are window a/c units in this cabin, I was a little worried at first but we were comfortable the whole time. Our favorite part of this cabin was how quiet it was. Absolutely peaceful. Enjoy!
