About Don Rucker

Home Sweet Home is Kentucky!!! A career move with IBM moved us to Summerville, South Carolina in 1976. I left IBM in 1990 and have since opened a few computer stores in the Low Country. We are avid motorcycle riders and love road trips. We also enjoy returning to Kentucky a few times a year to ride our ATV. But, the sweet spot for us is Maggie Valley, North Carolina. When we travel we can't help but compare every place we visit to North Carolina and so far we have not found any place that compares.

Don Rucker purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Don Rucker chose Smoky Mountains

Terri and I wanted a great view without having to drive up a mountain road to enjoy it. I ride a Harley Davidson so having a paved access road is very important.

What makes this cabin unique

Soco Mountain View!! There are only 15 houses in this Mountain community of vacation homes and each house has in excess of an acre of land.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at the Bear Den. It was the perfect get away for our 10 year wedding Anniversary. We loved the comfy bed & couch & giant TV. We also enjoyed the hottub which relaxed our muscles after a full day of skiing. Thank you for sharing your home on VRBO. Keren & Michael P.S. We enjoyed all the pictures too! You are so artistic!

Great little find in Maggie Valley

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed for three nights in the middle of November. There was enough chill in the air to make a fire every night and soak in the hot tub.....what a luxury for us Florida flatlanders! It is a very clean, modern house just off the main drag and is a nice base for hiking and exploring the area. Everything you need is there...and the beds were super comfortable. Don was very easy to work with and he attended to a problem with the hot tub right away. The views were amazing but we were surprised that it is located in an area with close neighbors and felt more like suburb than woods. We really enjoyed our time there and thank Don for being so gracious.

A wonderful house in Maggie Valley

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Bear Den for five nights in October. The house is lovely, very comfortable and well-maintained. It is just as is described in the property listing and photos. The beds in both bedrooms were comfortable. The kitchen had all the supplies needed to cook breakfast and dinner. The living room was a comfortable place for relaxing in the evenings. The view of the mountains from the swing on the deck was stunning, and having a hot tub and its being so conveniently located was great. We went to the area to hike, and spent most of the days hiking in the Smokies, and also hiked off the Blue Ridge Parkway. The house is conveniently located with easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway but also in a quiet location. Don responded promptly to emails with questions. We would definitely stay at the Bear Den on a return trip to the Maggie Valley area.

Beautiful Home & Views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Maggie Valley & so glad we had the Bear Den to come home to. The house is immaculate! The view from the deck is amazing to say the least! Only things we needed were clothes & food! We rode motorcycles on the Blue Ridge Parkway & rode some different trails. Beautiful scenery everywhere. We ate at several restaurants in & around Maggie Valley. I did not have a bad meal! Everything was delicious! Don & his wife were very helpful as well. Super nice people! Thank you for letting us enjoy your home!
