"I don’t normally write reviews but since my husband is still thanking me for finding this cabin, I feel I should give credit where credit is due.
My husband and I spent 3 days in mid-October at the Bear’s Lair and had a pleasant and relaxing experience. Primarily “flatland” drivers, we found the trek leading to the cabin in our low to the ground van an adventure once we got off the main road but if we did it everyone else can. We also made sure we were back at the cabin before dark as not many street lights once off main road.
Being 65+, having everything on one floor and having the parking pad so near to the front entrance made it easy to unload bags and groceries and retrieve glasses, maps, etc left in car.
Mattress was comfortable and towels, bedding, all the rooms, kitchen, bathrooms and especially the hot tub were clean and inviting, (and I am picky). The hot tub was a blessing to come back to after hiking and exploring the area. One of the highlights was the beautiful scenic drive through the mountains to get to Amicolala Falls. It was also very spectacular to watch the sun rise gloriously from behind the mountain in view from the porch each morning we were there.
Ed Garcia was very helpful, professional, and easy to contact. Any questions or issues we had were quickly resolved. The cabin provided ample privacy within a quiet residential area surrounded by other cabins. Having never rented a cabin from owner we did not know what to expect but I would definitely recommend staying at the Bear’s Lair. Thank you Mr. Garcia for sharing your lovely cabin with us."

"We stayed at the Summit for an amazing girls weekend that was the perfect mixture of relaxing and adventure. The cabin was beautiful, comfortable, and spacious. We spent most of our stay dining, shopping, hiking, and visiting a winery in the Blue Ridge area, but our favorite activity from our trip was spending an entire morning relaxing and visiting with each other on the rocking chairs on the porch over coffee. There were plenty of activities to do in the area and we were not able to get to everything, saving some for future trips with and without our families. The owners were quick and pleasant during the booking process and provided detailed directions and recommendations that were essential in enjoying some of the more tucked away local gems. We're looking forward to returning to this fantastic property in the future."

Even during four days of rain . No one was disappointed. Can't wait to come back and repeat our family party"

"We (two adults and one child) spent a week at this property and it was perfect! The owners are so friendly and easily accessible. The cabin is beautiful and very clean with absolutely no evidence that pets have stayed there. We loved playing in the river and relaxing in the awesome hot tub. Everything we needed was in the cabin. So convenient. We brought our dog and he loved the big yard and swimming in the river. And the hammock was perfect for a nice nap by the water. The beds were very comfortable and we all slept so well. We enjoyed dinner on the screened porch and s'mores by the fire pit. We loved the area as well. Fun shopping, horseback riding, tubing and a drive-in movie! So fun! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cabin to friends and family. We were all sad when the week was over. My daughter cried when we left!"
