  • Great cabin and excellent hospitality!

    "My wife and I just spent Valentine's day weekend here and had such a great time! We really enjoyed the cabin and all the trails around it to walk with our dog! The owner, Angie, was really nice and brought us fresh eggs from her chickens and flowers for valentine's day when we checked in. I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a nice quiet getaway. We will definitely keep it bookmarked for future vacations!"

  • Adorable Cabin, Picturesque setting

    "I took my two 13 year olds for a weekend of hiking. We chose Red Cabin because of its proximity to Dupont and the charm it appeared to have in the pictures. It did not disappoint! The kitchen was updated and accommodating for those who like to cook "in" as we do. The loft was a great space for teenagers to escape. Ellen, the owner, was so nice and great to work with. We will definitely book another weekend in the near future!"

  • 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!!"

  • Solitude With A View

    "An excellent place to hide out for a few days. What neighbors? A narrow dirt road brings you up the mountain to a truly charmed gem. The views are amazing and all the amenities are present. Sunset in the hot tub alone is worth the trip. We were lucky enough to have raspberries and black berries blooming along the driveway during our stay. A morning walk to pick the fresh, delicious treats to put on our French Toast was the icing on the cake. Downtown Asheville is not far if you want to take advantage of what it has to offer. Brea was very friendly and very easy to work with. I highly recommend experiencing a stay here."
