Beautiful crafted small home with attention given to every detail. Our guests enjoy sitting on the porch viewing multiple long-range mountains. During the evenings families gather around the outdoor fireplace to share stories and make new memories. The spa is located just outside double glass doors of the master bedroom - a refreshing way to spend time enjoying the views and fresh mountain air. When entering into the home the workmanship of hand crafted furniture is immediately noticed. The dinning table is made from locust, maple and mountain laurel branches; the bedroom has a queen bed and nightstands made from locust post and mountain laurel branches. The loft area has custom made twin beds. We have a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Start making your mountain memories for a lifetime today!

                                                                My husband and I celebrated our 5th anniversary at Gentle Bear and it was amazing!! Karen and Chester were so helpful and friendly!! We rode a Harley, so the ride up was an adventure but we made it fine and it was so worth it!! I wish our stay was not over but we will be back!! Thank you guys for a great memorable anniversary!!!

                                                                Perfect Mountain Getaway!

                                                                Jill B.

                                                                We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The cabin was beautiful and inviting. We enjoyed relaxing on the porch by the fireplace. Just what we needed!

                                                                Perfect Getaway Spot!

                                                                Deana A.

                                                                This place was nothing less than perfect! We highly recommend.

                                                                Nice new cabin with great view in quiet development. Perfect size for a couple.

                                                                Thomas A.

                                                                Cabin was very nice. Appears to be very new construction. Well decorated with great views and a nice porch area. Fire pit off to side of house that we didn't use due to rain, however the gas logs on the porch were wonderful. Many nearby attractions. We only spent time in downtown Bryson city due to short length of stay but it turned out to be very convenient to many other popular areas. Would definitely recommend to others. Perfect size cabin for couple. Hot tub was a great perk.

                                                                This property was perfect!

                                                                My boyfriend and I took a mini vacation. This cabin was just what we needed! Peaceful and relaxing!!

                                                                Thank you for letting us know you enjoyed your stay at our Gentle Bear cabin. We’re so glad you had a relaxing vacation here in the mountains! We at Mountain Memories Vacation Rentals look forward to seeing you again soon.

                                                                What a relaxing stay

                                                                TJ S.

                                                                We really enjoyed our stay with such beautiful views of the Great Smoky Mountains. Most of our time was spent on the porch just looking off into the mountains either in the rocking chairs next to the gas fireplace or the relaxing hot tub. The cabin was cozy with everything we needed and nice accents throughout. The location was close to Bryson City (10 min drive) which was magical during the holiday season with everyone in town wearing pajamas and riding the polar express. There are some excellent restaurant options with Cork & Bean Bistro, Pasqualino's Italian Restaurant, and The Filling Station Deli & Sub shop. Nantahala and Mountain Layer Breweries were also very enjoyable. It was just what we needed to get away, unplug, and unwind. You will be glad you booked this place.
