About the Property
3 bedrooms, loft, 3 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps 8
We have gone out of our way to make this home as comfortable and relaxing as possible with the laid back feel of a mountain retreat. You'll find this home warm and inviting. Some of the features include reclining sofas and chairs, plush pillow top beds, a handcrafted dining room table with seating for 10, as well as custom cabinetry and granite counter tops in the kitchen and baths. The focal point of the home is the massive floor to ceiling stone gas fireplace in the great room.
Fun things to do: Want more excitement? Try Harrah’s Casino located in nearby Cherokee. Need a relaxing drive? The scenic Blue Ridge Parkway starts in Cherokee. Want golf? Check out the Smoky Mountain Country Club in Whittier! Zip line through the Nantahala forest. Visit the Biltmore Estate in Asheville.
Relax a bit: However, if you want to truly relax, you don’t need to leave home. How about sitting in the hot tub and enjoying the mountain views during the day or stargazing at night with your favorite beverage. Or, how about cooking a steak on the grill while watching the sun set over the mountains. After dinner, nothing beats sitting around the fire pit telling stories and roasting marshmallows.
Our 'Brown Bear Lodge' has an instant charm and comfort that envelops you in luxury.
4 day minimum stay requirement over Holidays.
