Conveniently located in Maggie Valley with paved easy access all the way to the back door. There are no switch backs or dangerous mountain roads to deal with here. It's only 1.5 miles to Ghost Town, less than 5 miles to the Catloochee Ski Area, 2.0 miles to Joey's Pancake House and 2.5 miles to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Bear Den is a NON-SMOKING, NO PETS ALLOWED Vacaition Rental.

Having rented many vacation homes in Maggie Valley over the past 25 years, we experienced many that were not maintained well. Mattresses were old and hard, linens were worn or there was an insufficient quantity. TVs were old and lacked many of the channels we enjoyed at home. Much of the décor was whatever the owner had left over from their main house. Then occasionally we would rent a place that was really nice. When we purchased the Bear Den we decided we wanted to do all we could possibly afford to make the Bear Den like the rentals we enjoyed. So, upscale vacation rental to us is ensuring the Bear Den is well maintained, mattresses are comfortable, linens are plentiful, TVs are up to date with many channels to choose from. There is ample outdoor seating. The appliances are replaced periodically. Every spring we do major upgrades to the Bear Den to ensure none of our guests are disappointed. In 2012 we replaced all interior doors with solid wood 6 panel doors and added an outdoor stone firepit.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: Originally from Kentucky but moved to Summerville, South Carolina in 1976 as part of a career move with IBM. I have since opened a few computer stores in the Low Country that helps pay for what is important: Our Harley's, We are avid rides and love to do road trips. We also enjoy returning to Kentucky a few times a year to ride our four wheelers in the hills we love. But, the sweet spot for us is Maggie Valley, North Carolina. When we travel we can't help but compare every place we visit to North Carolina and so far we have not found any place that compares to Maggie Valley or the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina.

                      Why the Owner Chose Maggie Valley:
                      Terri and I wanted a great view without having to drive up a mountain road to enjoy it. I ride a Harley Davidson so having a paved easy access road was very important.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Soco Mountain View!! Privacy is great at the Bear Den. There are only a few houses in this Mountain community of vacation homes. You rarely see a car or a person when staying at the Bear Den.
