About the owner: We live in nearby Highlands, NC (another beautiful place) and built this cottage as a weekend getaway to enjoy the lake, golf course and great clubhouse! Our family is from Savannah, GA and moved up to the mountains to raise our family of 5 girls in 1985. We enjoy renting and house swapping all over - Mexico, California and the southeast.
Why the Owner Chose Tuckasegee: Bear Lake Reserve is very unique. While we are 'in the middle of nowhere' you have every amenity at your fingertips without the crowds. You can visit many places during your stay at Bear Lake - Sylva - 20 minutes; Western Carolina University - 15 minutes; Cashiers - 30 minutes; Highlands - 45 minutes; Cherokee - 40 minutes; Asheville - 1 hour. Explore the Blue Ridge and Smokey Mountains from this spot and return to a very special place.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Our cottage is situated close to the Greeter's Cottage (entrance) and just down the road (a few minute walk) from the Mill Pond with stocked trout ponds, streams, hiking trails, large covered pavilion with a huge fireplace (wood provided), bathrooms and a nice living room with fully equipped kitchen. A great gathering place for meals or just drinks.
