                              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.
