This is the second year in a row we've rented this house - it's perfect, secluded and beautiful. We have had many great days here - this last trip it rained every day, but we still managed to have a great time and get outside for some hiking. I can't recommend this place enough!!

Beautiful Home -- Exceeded our Expectations!
The pictures are great, but the cabin is even better! And the location is perfect -- feels secluded without being secluded! Beautiful sunsets, campfires in the firepit, fireflies, smores, wine on the deck . . . it doesn't get much better! Great vacation home for adventures in Shenandoah! We will be back!

Great GetawayGuest comment entered by owner
We had the pleasure of staying here for a guys weekend. The place was in a good location with a lot of things to do in the area. We hung out at the house most of the time, but did go tubing. The tubing outfitter was only a 10-15 drive and was a great way to relax on the water. The house itself is great. The fire pit is perfect and they have it set up so a fair amount of people can hang out by the fire. We brought a lot of food and drinks and had no problem cooking or storing it all. I would highly recommend this place for a large group for any occasion. The name really says it all. You can be rustic while still enjoying some luxury and relaxation

Even Better Than ExpectedGuest comment entered by owner
Even Better Than Expected
We were a bit nervous about having cramped quarters for our first vacation with our daughter (8-months pregnant), her husband, and their 6 children, but the Bears Den Cabin was even more spacious than the on-line pictures suggests. Exceptionally clean, modern - with an exceptional view. Isolated, yet lots to do. In our 4 full days (5 nights) we did Luray Caverns, Monticello, hiked the Appalachian Trail - and just stayed home one rainy day playing games, using the hot tub, hiking around the "neighborhood" and even making an evening fire between raindrops - our six grandchildren ranging from 2 years old to 15 were never bored. Beds were very, very comfortable. A great vacation, great accommodations. Would return in a heartbeat.

Great Cabin, Gorgeous AreaGuest comment entered by owner
Great Cabin, Gorgeous Area
We stayed at Bear's Den over Memorial day weekend in 2013. The cabin is simply wonderful! Many amenities and a fully stocked kitchen helped us feel right at home. Beautiful sunsets, hot tubs, fire pit, and plenty to do inside if the weather doesn't hold up. The 5 bedrooms with king / queen beds was a definite plus for 5 couples. Other places had bedrooms with bunk beds or twin beds, so this place was great for adults only. Our dogs enjoyed it too, with room to run outside. We saw no bears. Word of caution: If you are following Google Maps, DO NOT turn on Ingham Rd. It looks like a shortcut but is in fact a dead end. Also, be careful of the road. It's steep and gravely getting up, and could be troublesome in the winter.

The house was spacious, clean and well equipped. Enjoyed the deck and the hot tub but didn't even get around to the pool table, fooseball, games or movies.

We stayed out here for a weekend with a bunch of girlfriends and had one of the best weekends ever. The house was immaculate, very comfortable, well appointed, outstanding views, great "customer service" for the few questions we had upon arrival and we'll never forget it. THANK YOU!!

About the owner: My husband and I live in Virginia Beach, VA...just a few hours away from the cabin. We have always wanted a place to escape to in the mountains and we found it at the Bears Den. We fell in love with the serenity and quaintness of the area and wanted to own this beautiful cabin from the moment we walked in the door. We are always looking for ways to improve the property and make it exactly what a guest would want for an unforgettable get-a-way. Since purchasing the cabin, we have built a brand new deck on the lower level, upgraded the downstairs bathroom and renovated the fire pit area (among many other smaller projects). We try to head up to our retreat every couple of months and always have a hard time leaving to come back to reality! We also love bring along our family and friends and always make lasting memories during our stays. Some of our favorite moments is watching the sunset over the mountain while we enjoy enjoy a cocktail. And, of course, the hot tub is a magnificent place to relax while gazing at the stars! We couldn't have dreamt of a better place to escape to.
