Property description

Located on 5 acres behind the gate in Old Timberline, Bear's Lair offers the privacy of a beautiful wooded setting 5 minutes from the slopes in winter, or scenic Spruce Island Lake in summer. This large, comfortable home has two large master suites with walk-in closets and private baths - one conveniently located on the first floor. The great room is a favorite gathering place with a huge stone fireplace and plenty of windows providing views of the woods and wildlife. Enjoy preparing hearty mountain breakfasts in the crowd sized well-equipped kitchen. The dining area will comfortably accommodate dinner for 12 around a huge carved oak table. Game room with pool table. Enjoy star studded nights and golden sunsets from the hot tub on the two-level deck. Exceptional natural beauty, comfort, and convenience make Bear's Lair a experience that you'll want to return to.
