Great Getaway!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Getting away from our everyday hustle of life was just what we needed and Streamside Mountain Cottage was the place to do it!! Our family of five was very comfortable, the furnishings are fantastic, and the house had everything you could need. The grounds are well maintained and the property was in great condition. Bear Lake is great place to visit...we will be back!!

Reluctant to Share this Gem

  • 5 of 5

We have visited this wonderful home six times in seven years and it never disappoints. Allyson and Brian are the most accommodating owners you will find. This charming cottage location is on a large lot with side creek. It is perhaps the best in Bear Lake since it is mostly level and near the gated entry and Greeters Cottage. Your wooded view from the back screened and covered porch is a delight. We rock, dine and enjoy the fireplace outside throughout the visit. You are 15-20 minutes from Sylva for shopping and supplies but feel a world away. The private 5 mile mountain drive to the uncrowded and magnificent lakeside clubhouse and pool is both scenic and relaxing. You cannot imagine how excellent it is even from the pictures. Overlooking Bear Creek Lake is simply beautiful. Our only reservation is sharing this hidden gem with others, preferring to keep the secret to ourselves.

Phenomenal Labor Day Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here and exploring Bear Lake! The home is beautifully furnished and has everything you need, even the things you always forget to take when you rent a house (like olive oil and ketchup!). We had 4 adults and 4 small children under the age of 5 and we had plenty of room. The Lake Club is gorgeous. We spent time in the pools (our kids loved the slide!) and the lake taking advantage of the Club's paddle boards and canoes. We also rented a boat and found a beautiful waterfall. We were overwhelmed by the sheer beauty and serenity of it all. Allyson was wonderful and very helpful in the rental process. It felt like renting from a friend. Highly recommend!!

Great New Year's Eve Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We decided to do something different for New Year's Eve this year and rented this wonderful cottage. The house is beautiful and had everything we needed for our stay. We kept a fire going in both the indoor and outdoor fireplaces and loved every minute of our stay. The surrounding areas offers lots to do and the hikes throughout the Reserve were a great way to get outside and breathe in that mountain air. Ready to go back!

great location

Lovely vacation spot. Clean and everything in working order. Best was the screened in porch and the sound of the creek next to the house.
