  • Beautiful Mountain Lake Retreat

    "We loved every minute of our one week stay at Happy Bears Cottage. We highly recommend Bear Lake Reserve for a quiet retreat amidst stunning beauty. The house is tastefully furnished and well-cared for -- there was ample seating in the living area, a huge dining table & bar stools with seating for ten, bedrooms with amazingly comfortable mattresses, and a nicely appointed gourmet kitchen adequately supplied for cooking for a crowd for the chefs among you. We loved having the large screened porch out back. It provided a safe place for our little ones to play -- with two seating areas for the adults as well. The view from the porch was stunning -- it directly overlooks a well-groomed pond, with views of the mountains beyond it. From the porch, you have easy access to a large, level grassy area around the pond -- perfect for our grandkids to enjoy. And just beyond the pond was the amphitheater area, with an even larger grassy field. This cottage is very close to the main gate, which gave us quick access to the surrounding areas on the days we wanted to explore. There are two small towns (Sylva & Cullowhee) within a 30 minute drive with grocery stores and other necessities. We spent a day at the Biltmore Estate, which is a scenic one-hour drive away. There are lots of outdoor activities available in this general area: rock climbing, hiking, beautiful waterfalls & gem mining (Franklin area), horseback riding, zip-lining & whitewater rafting. But with the outstanding amenities available at Bear Lake Reserve, you may never leave the resort! Everything was top-notch and well-groomed -- from the incredible mountaintop golf course with stunning long range views, to the lake club area with its two pool areas & gorgeous views of the lake (one infinity pool for adults & one kiddie pool with slide), plus the amenities at the lake club (theatre room, library, kids' playroom, restaurant & café, fitness center), in addition to the marina area with various boat rentals, as well as the trout pond pavilion with catch & release fishing in their stocked pond, to the Bear Creek Park area with nature trails, fire pits & camp areas for family adventures -- there are so many activities to enjoy in this resort community! Do be aware that this particular cottage is not suited for anyone with limited mobility -- there is a steep slope with stone steps from the small parking pad to the front entrance. However, I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone else -- we loved it!!"

  • Autumn view

    "Highly recommend this cottage and the village for a terrific getaway and wonderful hiking opportunities. Chad was a terrific host and his brother will win over your appetite with his Orchard menu. Kudos to the Boswells."

  • BRING A GOOD BOOK!

    "As two couples, we enjoyed the cabin while attending a family wedding nearby. It was perfect. All of the overwhelmingly positive reviews are accurate. The house is spotless, well appointed, and unbelievably comfortable. I found myself wishing I could just stay at the cabin and read a good book in the great lazyboy with the perfect lamp, or on the quiet, serene front porch swing, or down at the cool creekside picnic area! You will wish you had a longer stay!"

  • Gorgeous!! We had such a great stay!

    "We love this condo at Bear Lake Reserve! It was the perfect combination of getting away from it all while still enjoying luxury amenities. The condo is beautifully appointed, two stories with great views from the deck. The Golf club was a quick drive and is worth the gorgeous views. The Lake Club is a great place for dining, swimming and checking out the lake. We took a canoe out and had a nice time, there are also jet skis, kayaks and boats available for rent. Our two year old had such a great time. It was a pleasure working with the owner and rental agency, very kind! We look forward to coming back with friends and family!"
