  • Sky Valley Holiday in Februrary


    Well-maintained cottage close to center of Sky Valley community perched halfway up a hill. Excellent East and SE exposure with good sun - especially in the AM. Generous deck with grill and fire pit (we didn’t use either). Cottage (kitchen, especially) might feel a little small for a full house (3 BRs) but fine for two of us. Sadly, a day ahead of time they advised the gas fireplace wasn’t working and they didn’t get it fixed before we left; (no reason to believe that such problems are characteristic as everything else is in excellent condition). We could have used it as this is Feb. WiFi, etc. all good. Stayed a little over a week and would do it again.

  • After Christmas Renewal


    Spent five days after Christmas. It was a busy season and this house and location provided rest and refreshment. We were able to chill out, walk, visit the waterfall and see family who live nearby.

  • Perfect house for a mountain getaway


    My family (2 parents, 2 older teens, 1 dog) rented the Lazy Bear as our home base for a long mountain weekend. The house was perfect for our needs -- parents had the master on the main level and the teens enjoyed having their own rooms on the first floor. There was plenty of space for us to gather around the fireplace to play games. The kitchen is small, but equipped with the necessities to prep family meals. The house is in a quiet neighborhood (the bells chiming from the chapel was so lovely!) with an easy waterfall hike right down the road! From Sky Valley we visited Clayton, GA, Tallullah Falls State Park, Black Rock Mountain State Park, Highlands, NC and several waterfalls in the area -- Glen Falls and Dry Falls are memorable hikes! The property manager called prior to check-in to provide information about the area and ensure all of our questions were answered. We would definitely consider this home again!
