Amazing cabin

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I planned a 3-night getaway just before Christmas to enjoy the crisp mountain air. Little did we know we'd end up blanketed under one of the highest snowfall amounts on record. Close to a foot! Well, we hadn't planned on it so we weren't totally prepared. We couldn't get our car to the top of the driveway, much less back to the main highways. So we were literally snowed in. But the experience was awesome, and we give all credit to our hosts (Jim and Eunice Williams). They own one of the prettiest and coziest cabins we've ever seen. It is fully stocked with everything you'd need. Plenty of cookware, plenty of soap, plenty of linens, plenty of toilet paper, etc. All we really needed was food to eat. When we almost ran out of that, Jim and Eunice had a back-up emergency food box waiting in the pantry! And they were kind enough to extend an extra night free of charge since we were snowed in. That is hospitality at its finest, folks.

Two of their neighbors even checked on us. One brought us a little extra food and the other used his personal Bobcat to plow the roads so we could eventually drive out!

Anyone considering a stay in Blairsville should check out the Dancing Bear. You won't be disappointed!

Clean Cabin with a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our time at Dancing Bear! We found the cabin to be very clean, well-appointed and comfortable. We enjoyed the large porches with swing and rockers, as well as sitting in the living room by the fire. The location feels remote and secluded, but is easy to get to and was convenient to many hikes and downtown shops/restaurants. We will definitely be back!

Imaculate, great location, comfy! Will return again and again!

This was our second stay at Dancing Bear and we thoroughly enjoyed it again! Everything we could possibly need is provided. The cabin is neat and clean, beds and sofas are comfy. Kitchen is well--stocked for the heavy cooking we engaged in. We love the wrap-around porch, the surrounding trees and the relaxing hot tub! We would recommend this cabin to anyone, any age. We brought two grand daughters this time and they loved the upstairs bedrooms and sitting area. Wal-Mart and Dollar General are close enough and Blairsville is not very far away either. The owners, Jim and Eunice, are great to work with, always easily accessible to handle our reservation needs and questions. This place is the best we've found! We will come back every time we decide to visit this area!

  • 5 of 5

dancing bear is an amazing property.... Jim and Eunice were gracious owners, we arrived around midnight at the wrong property and called... Eunice graciously answered the phone and walked us through directions (that we didn't follow the first time) and stayed on the phone until we were safely inside.. once inside, you are greeted with the smell of wood.. kitchen and bathrooms were fully equipped, just bring your food. we will return to this property

Absolutely the quietest, most relaxing get-away ever!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin exceeded our expectations! It was extremely neat and clean and decorated so nicely with all the "bear decor" and other outdoorsy accents. Everything we could possibly need was provided (well...except Food!) The kitchen is well stocked. There are multiple TV's, very comfy sofas and a beautiful queen bed in the lovely master bedroom. Plenty of linens, extra pillows and blankets. Jim and Eunice have covered it all! We loved the swing and rockers on the wrap around porches, and screened in areas with a table for eating outside without bugs, plus an uncovered grill area with additional seating! We loved being surrounded by trees which made for cooler mornings and evenings outside, even in the heat of late July! We thoroughly enjoyed the very large, relaxing hot tub with easy access from the porch and privacy all around! This cabin is close enough to Blairsville to take advantage of shopping, dining, movies and other activities, but out of town enough to be quiet and secluded. We highly recommend this cabin for honeymooners, couples wanting to get away or as accommodations for a small family with up to 2 children.

I could go on and on about Dancing Bear cabin! It is one of the nicest we have ever stayed in. We can't wait to go back!!
