Our stay was wonderful!! My in-laws and

I came for a weekend stay. The photos show no justice to the beauty of the home. Stocked with all the essentials, inside and outdoors. It was like staying at home. Richard was a great host! We will be back!

Bear's Den Hideout is fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Richard was fantastic and like previous posts, he provided us a tour and history of the cabin which really added to our stay. The cabin is very well kept up and by far, the best kept rental that we have had so far. The pool was fantastic too. Let me add, the photos do not do the cabin justice. The front porch was large and had a nice sitting areas with fans. The fans made it wonderful to sit out there even on a very warm AL evening. I can't say enough good things about our experience and hope we can return to the cabin again!

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We were there for a college reunion. Richard was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end and easy to get a hold of. It was great having the pool. (Just a note, it's flagstone, not cool decking and very hot in the sun. Make sure you have sandals or water shoes and be careful if you take your pets out there). The house was clean and very comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen had everything you needed to make and or serve a meal. Bring your blow dryer, it didn't have one. You know what you get when you assume! Anyway, we had a great time and would certainly reccomend this to others. You'll love it!
