Location

Car: Necessary

Big Bear Cabin is located in the Bear Den community directly off of the Blue Ridge Parkway between mile markers 324 and 325 and is roughly half way between Linville Falls and Little Switzerland. Big Bear Cabin is very secluded and sits at an elevation of 3000+ feet above sea level within the Pisgah National Forest. The cabin is conveniently located close to many local attractions and offers short and long range mountain views. Don't feel like getting in the car to go find a hike or waterfall? No problem... It is a short walk from Big Bear Cabin to several really great hiking trails that lead directly to a beautiful waterfall inside the Pisgah National Forest. Big Bear Cabin is located within one of the very few communities (i.e. Bear Den) located directly off of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Make sure to check out the mountain views and millions of stars at night from the Hot Springs hot tub on the large front porch.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My wife and I custom built Big Bear Cabin with a lot of love in 2007 and began to share the adventure with renters in 2008. We only live two hours away and try to make it up to our cabin as much as possible when it is not being enjoyed by other people. We love our Big Bear Cabin and are sure that you will quickly fall in love with it as well!

Why the Owner Chose Spruce Pine:
We picked the Bear Den community to build Big Bear Cabin because of the location, the peacefulness, how quiet it is, and the incredible beauty of the mountain views from the lot we selected. I grew up as a little boy camping at Bear Den Campground with my parents and jumped on the opportunity to buy a piece of land in this special place. The Bear Den community is now over 50 years old and is the only community on the East side of the Blue Ridge Parkway between Hwy 226 in Spruce Pine and Hwy 221 in Linville Falls. The Bear Den community consists of over 400 sparsely developed acres and is located inside Pisgah National Forest. We absolutely love the seclusion that this provides and the tremendous amount of wildlife we see regularly while visiting the cabin. We are roughly one mile past Bear Den Campground but it is fun to drive through to see the campers as well as smell the campfires and breakfast cooking in the morning.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Big Bear Cabin has the special benefit of being part of the Bear Den community. As part of staying at Big Bear Cabin, you get to enjoy a ton of fun things to do right within the Bear Den community. You can swim in the Bear Den lake or lie on the sandy beach, paddle in a boat or canoe, fish in the lake without needing a NC Fishing License, hike on Bear Den's miles of nature trails leading to streams, waterfalls, and spectacular scenic overlooks. For the sports enthusiast, Bear Den offers areas for basketball, horse shoes, volleyball, badminton, and others. Children can play on one of two great playgrounds or in the arcade game room. The whole family can join together in the recreational building for shuffleboard, ping-pong, square dancing, and much more! There is typically night entertainment in the summer time. You can also head to the Bear Den Trading Post for light groceries, ice, drinks, and souvenirs. It is really a great time!
