"We had a great girls getaway at Bear Lake. It is centrally located to various small towns (Sylva, Cashiers, Bryson City and Highlands). Some in our group wanted to just chill and others were a little more active. There was plenty to do for all. Some went hiking while others laid by the pool and read. If you like serenity, change of pace and nice views, this is the place to be. The weather was perfect."

"We booked this cabin and two others for our wedding party and couldn't have been happier. We booked through Bill Clark who manages a few homes here and owns one himself. He was absolutely amazing. He kept us informed and is full of useful information since he is a property owner as well.
This cabin is perfect for a large family or even multiple families, as we used it for. There is plenty of space and all houseware is provided. All you have to do is show up and relax.
The reserve is massive but this cabin is located literally in the front which is good if you plan on running into town or are attending a wedding at the Castle like we were. To get to the lake club, where the pull and boating equipment are located, it's about a 20 minute drive because of the windy roads but the views are gorgeous so we didn't mind.
I believe the cabin was recently sold and the new owners did contact us and were very welcoming. So Bill may not be managing it any more but I wouldn't hesitate to book. We will definitely be back!"

"We have been coming to the Smokies since the seventies and our week with all our family at your cottage in Bear Lake Reserve was one of our most enjoyable. Plenty of things to do for the kids as well as the adults. Excellent cottage with many comforts plus the pool and boating at the clubhouse made for a great week for all of us."

"Our group of 10 (ages 7 to 70) loved our stay here. The house/location is beautiful, and it has everything you could possibly need and more. Everyone was comfortable, and everyone had something to do- the house is stocked with movies, books, games, you name it. The owner and the staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful. Bear Lake Reserve is gorgeous and full of amenities, and the staff is friendly. It's a long, winding trek (by car) to the pool and water activities, but it is worth it to have your home base so close to the entrance. We did see real, live bears almost every day of our stay, which was thrilling and scary at the same time. Fortunately, we were given a bear safety tutorial upon arrival, and we peacefully coexisted with the bears. They were great neighbors. We would stay here again in a heartbeat."
