'Fishing Bear Cabin' is a quaint, cozy log cabin getaway nestled on top of a secluded mountain ridge in Cherry Lake, a private community with small lakes and hiking trails.

Our location is convenient and easily accessible off of Hwy 515 yet very private and quiet. The cabin is kept clean and fresh.

About Doug & Jeanne Lindberg
We have loved the mountains and decided to buy in the Blue Ridge area because of all it has to offer - easy access, shops, hiking, tubing, rafting, antiquing, vineyards and wine tastings, festivals and so much more.
Doug & Jeanne Lindberg purchased this Cabin in 2003
Why Doug & Jeanne Lindberg chose Blue Ridge
We fell in love with the cozy, comfort of this cabin. It is very easy to get to with a four lane highway right up to the turn to go up the mountain. Once you leave the highway it is like being in another world - quiet, peaceful. We have tried to make our cabin a home away from home and provide all the comforts of home.
What makes this Cabin unique
Easy access to the cabin as well as down the driveway to park. Quiet and serene yet close to many activities, shops, local events, etc.

Very nice cabin
This is a very nice, well-equipped, clean and quiet cabin, with a gravel road for walks, relaxing hot tub and well-furnished porches. Almost feels like staying in a tree house, with lots of birds to watch and deer in the woods. Good paved road most of the way to the cabin. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely recommend to friends and family.
This cabin was exactly what we needed! It was so cozy inside & the porches were great to hangout on anytime of day. One evening we got to see 6 deer moving thru the woods & the next evening we saw 3 little pigs run thru! We watched squirrels play in the treetops & woodpeckers too! We used the grill for supper one night & found everything we needed to enjoy the meal. This place is great, we'll definitely be back soon. Thank u for sharing ur beautiful spot in the mountains with us 😊
Wow, the three little pigs is a first! So glad you enjoyed your stay and got to see the wonderful wildlife while enjoying the decks. The new bottom roofed deck has been a nice addition for us allowing grilling, hot tub usage and just hanging out in all weather. Thank you for taking the time to write this great review and we hope you'll consider returning to Fishing Bear Cabin for your next stay.
Thank you sincerely for your business.

We rented Fishing Bear Cabin for an anniversary weekend. This cabin truly is home away from home. Doing and Jeanne have everything you could possibly need for your time in the mountains. The furniture is comfortable, the beds are great and the hot tub is heavenly. We spent our days in Blue Ridge, where there is more than enough to do. If you're a wine drinker do yourself a favor and go for a tasting at Serenberry Vineyards in nearby Morganton. The wine is great and the people that work there are fantastic! Evenings spent on either of the decks at Fishing Bear are quiet and relaxing. The kitchen is perfect for cooking any size meal you want. We would recommend this property to anyone with absolutely no reservations. We loved it and we'll definitely be back!
My daughter and I stayed two nights, Feb 23-24, 2018. We enjoyed the shopping in Dawsonville and Blue Ridge. The cabin location was great, only minutes to Blue Ridge. The selection of dvds for night time viewing was perfect. The covered area for the hot tub was wonderful, even in the rain. Our trip was a last minute thing and the owners were wonderful to work with and we will definitely plan to return.
I am so happy your weekend ended up being just what you were hoping for! I actually thought of you both throughout the weekend, wondering if you were getting some good shopping and dining in! Two of my favorite things to do with the girls. Glad the covered deck was enjoyable - it is a new addition and we've gotten all positive feedback so I am pleased. Anytime you would like to make another trip, just contact me. Thanks for the nice comments.
Nice weekend getaway!
We enjoyed our stay in the cabin. There were 3 adults and a child. The cabin had everything you could expect for supplies. The cabin was a little tight for space in each of the bedrooms but that is due to having plenty of dressers and large size beds. The gas fireplace in the main living room was nice and was easily worked. The hot tub was great and worked perfectly. The DVD movie library was amazing and had all kinds of choices. The downstairs entertainment room was nice and had a good sized tv. The couches were not the most comfortable but we still enjoyed movie watching. The owners were great to work with and the cabin is very close to Blue Ridge. I would definitely recommend this cabin for the location, price, and overall enjoyment we had.
Thanks for reviewing Kelly - we appreciate all the nice comments. The futon downstairs agreeably is not the most comfortable as a sofa but has served as an additional bed. Replacing it with a new sleeper sofa is top of our list and we hope to take care of that in the very new future. Unexpectedly replacing the hot tub and putting a roof over the hot tub/ grilling deck in June delayed other items on our wish list unfortunately. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll consider us if you return to the area.

Perfect Cabin for NYE Weekend!
We had a great time at Fishing Bear Cabin. Doug and Jeanne were so communicative leading up to our stay, and the cabin was stocked with everything you could possibly need. We never even left Cherry Log! Instead we enjoyed playing games at the table, walking the trails near the cabin, spending (cold!!) nights in the hot tub, playing ping pong in the game room, and catching up around the fire. We have already talked about making this our yearly friend reunion cabin! We will definitely be back.
Happy New Year! Thanks for welcoming the new year at Fishing Bear Cabin and we are very glad you enjoyed you stay. We'd love you to make our cabin a spot for an annual friend reunion. We have several guests who return year after year!
Just send me an email and we'll get you set up.
Have a great weekend.
Jeanne and Doug
