Cashiers house description

Stay a week or stay a month. Enjoy the hot tub and the view and the peaceful days and nights alone or with your family!

Make a lifetime of vacation memories at 'Mama Bear' at Bear Lake. Amazing view of Lake and Mountains. Fish for trout or small mouth bass, enjoy the view from hot tub and large decks, shoot some pool, or just watch the leaves change color. This summer families have enjoyed kayaking, hiking to creeks and waterfalls, fishing, gem mining and much more! Enjoy 200 feet of shoreline, and private boat dock near the public boat access. Bring your boat and tour the waterfalls. Part of the Nantahala National Forest.

'Mama Bear', a remodeled older home(circa 1980's), is only a short drive to Sylva, Dillsboro, Cashiers, and Highlands. There are many fun things to do in Cherokee; and Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and Dollywood are excellent 1 day excursions. Drive to Cataloochee and see the Elk or see a show at the Cherokee Casino. Call Western Carolina University to check the entertainment schedule and plan to catch a concert, play, athletic event, or craft show there. Mountain Heritage Day, held the last Saturday in September, is always a great reason to visit the area.

Though Mama Bear has several beds, the owner is also willing to price it right for a couple just wanting a quiet weekend alone.
Perfect getaway for a family. What a wonderful place for the whole family to share Thanksgiving or Christmas together. Sleeping includes 2 King beds, 2 Queen beds, 1 sleeper sofa. There are 2 Rock Gas-Log Fireplaces. Canoe, and life jackets available for use.

Keywords: Lakefront Mountain House, Kayaks available to rent, Peace & Quiet.

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About: We purchased this home because of the view in 2005. Mama Bear was built in 1985 and needed some upgrades. While we have already done many remodeling projects at Mama Bear, we look forward to being able to upgrade & complete more projects in the future. We look forward to enjoying relaxing days there in the future. We live 20 minutes from Bear Lake and are thankful each time we read the guest book and see that other families have enjoyed staying at Mama Bear.

              Why Cashiers:
              We chose to buy a vacation rental in this location because of the amazing view! We enjoy the peace and quiet, the beautiful lake, the mountains that change with each season, and the wildlife we've seen while canoeing. We also liked it's rustic charm....this is NOT an upscale home.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We've enjoyed watching beavers, osprey, and skunk :), catching walleye & large mouth bass, roasting marshmallows, hot-tubbing, canoeing, and just enjoying the quiet at Mama Bear.
