  • The Bear’s Den


    We had a wonderful time experiencing the pleasantries of the outdoors and living remotely with this cozy cabin to accommodate us.

  • Bears Den is fantastic!!


    The property was great and very clean. Nice flat yard for kids to run around or play catch. Dozens of deer every evening as we sat around the beautiful new fire pit. It was perfect for our family of 4 and a couple of the kids friends. Located convenient to Beech Mountain, Sugar Mountain and the alpine coaster. Would definitely come back!

  • Adequate accommodations


    Although the property was very clean, I feel that the description of the property is somewhat inaccurate. The "3rd" bedroom listed with bunkbeds has no blinds at all and is, in fact, not a bedroom but a room off the dining nook that has been turned into a bedroom. The door is half glass and there is an opening in the wall giving the people inside no privacy at all for dressing. Also, there is no TV access at all but streaming and we were unable to get the upstairs TV to work at all. There is a laundry list of instructions left, stating if things aren't left just so upon leaving, the traveler will be charged a fee. For the price paid, I will not be returning.
