About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Lazy Bear Lodge is a beautiful hand-built log cabin with heart pine floors and exposed beams. The year-round long range view is fantastic as the cabin sits at an elevation of nearly 3,300 feet. In addition, the cabin is located on nearly 5 acres adjacent to Pinnacle Park with easy access to great hiking trails.

The secluded outdoor area complete with a hot tub, fire pit, grill and picnic table is one of the highlights of our cabin. Many of our guests tell us they start the day with coffee on the porch rockers and end the day with s'mores at the fire pit. Some even tell us they never leave the property!

Lazy Bear Lodge is located just minutes from downtown Sylva, about 20 minutes from the Cherokee Casino and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and about 30 minutes from Ghost Town in the Sky, Cataloochee Ski Resort, and Maggie Valley.

The home has everything you need for a great holiday weekend or multi-week vacation including a well stocked kitchen (see our reviews!) and a huge farm table with seating for 12.

Dogs allowed with a $125 per dog non-refundable pet fee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lazy Bear Lodge was just what we needed! Everything was exactly right: the seclusion, the porch (with rockers!), the fully equipped kitchen & of course the hot tub and grill. Our favorite night was when we stayed in and gilled out dinner and sat around the campfire. It was a great week!

The cabin slept 5 very comfortably! It was clean, cozy, and exactly what we pictured for a low key getaway.

A great secluded setting

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. All we needed to bring was food. It was furnished well and very welcoming. We hiked the nearby trails, walked downtown Waynesville, and toured the WCU campus.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Great place to get away from it all. Really enjoyed the rustic ambiance of the cabin. Loved the fireplace on chili mornings and the fire pit to wind down each evening. A true gem. We're already planning our next trip!
