About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Comfortably Sleeps Up to 10

Convenient to whitewater rafting & kayaking just over the border in nearby North Carolina or Tennessee as well as unlimited water activities on pristine Lake Chatuge in Hiawassee with 3 marinas nearby. Got Golf? We do! Brasstown Resort, The Ridges Resort & Chatuge Shores offer excellent golfing all within a 10 mile radius. Other nearby attractions are tubing in Helen, The Cabbage Patch Doll Factory in Cleveland & horseback riding at one of the local stables. You can pan for gems or gold or tour gold mines in historic Dahlonega; Hike the near-by Appalachian Trail, Attend a wine tasting at one of the local vineyards, visit scenic Vogel Park, Helton Falls, Ana Ruby Falls and many others, or Brasstown Bald, the highest mountain in Georgia. Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds, home of the famous Fall Festival, is located just 20 minutes away. There are a couple of day spas locally that offer a number of services to pamper yourself while you unwind for all the fun- filled activities of the day!

A Perfect Setting with Tree Top Mtn Views!: “Bear Pause”, perhaps just to admire the rustic cabin nestled in among the pines, or is it the breath taking view of Brasstown Bald they’re stopping to see? You decide, but it won’t be easy, there’s so much to love about this cozy cabin hideaway. Just a few years old, it’s bearly broken-in but you’ll feel right at home as soon as you arrive. There’s ample parking for 4 cars or more and the driveway has been paved to make access easy all year round. There are 3 covered porches with plenty of seating to relax and enjoy the panoramic view of the mountains. Or watching the kids play horseshoes out in the backyard where we’ve built a great stone fire pit with log benches all around (can’t you just hear the crackling fire and smell the marshmallows toasting?). The floor plan provides plenty of personal space with a bedroom and bath on each level for a total of 3 spacious bedrooms (each with its own TV) and 3 and ½ baths.

Who Says Rustic Has to be Rough?: The Master Suite on the main level is furnished with a King Sized log bed with luxurious 18” deep, pillow-top mattress all dressed up in comfy, downy “woodland” quilt & shams with dreamy soft sheets. (Who says rustic has to be rough?) The living room has Cathedral ceilings with lots of windows and a stacked stone, gas-log fireplace, hardwood floors with a rich jewel-toned area rug, lodge styled furnishings & a 42” flat screen satellite TV mounted above the mantel. We’ve even provided a few DVD’s to watch on the new Blue Ray player for the whole family to enjoy on rainy days or chilly evenings in front of the fire. The kitchen opens out to the dining area, which comfortably seats 6 while the kitchen bar provides seating for an additional 4. You’ll find everything you need to prepare meals at home whether you’re cooking a pot of porridge for the little cubs or barbecuing on the gas grill (propane provided) just outside on the upper deck. The laundry room is located on this level.

Thoughtfully Furnished & Equipped: The loft level has another large bedroom with 2 oversized hand-hewn log beds, one a Queen and the other a Full/Double size. The full bath on this level also serves any extra guests, sleeping on the Queen size sofa bed in the open area of the loft which is furnished with a full sized pool table and additional tables and seating. The cabin is equipped with WiFi Internet service and there’s a cozy little nook with a desk, printer and fax machine; everything you need to stay in touch with the office – just bring your laptop. The lower level has a 3rd large bedroom furnished with another Queen sized hand-hewn log bed and a super sturdy bunk bed carved out of tree trunks. There’s a 3rd full bath just across the hall from this bedroom and down the hall from the Kids Playroom which highlights a 32” flat screen TV equipped with “Play Station II” and some games, but you may want to bring your own favorites. Here too, you’ll find a Foosball table & a game table with checkerboard imprint.

Very comfortable and spacious cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family was in Young Harris for a wedding. We found this cabin to be really spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. The location is very good and the cabin has great views off the back deck. We enjoyed scenic walks from the front door, visiting Brasstown Bald and being so close to Lake Chatuge. Very nice and relaxing weekend at Bear Pause.

Relaxing, Spacious Cabin

  • 3 of 5

First, let me stay I would give Bear Pause an overall 3.5. It's a beautiful, spacious cabin that just needs some TLC. We loved the privacy, and the large porch overlooking the backyard. Upon arrival, we noticed litter along the driveway, dog waste, and the yard was in need of mowing. There is a nice fire pit down a steep slope in the backyard that we used to make s'mores. The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of dishes, glasses, and anything you might need. I brought my Magic Bullet with me and there was already one there. (very nice) My boys slept in downstaris bedroom which has bunkbeds and a queen size bed. I'm not a fan of flannel sheets, and they were on most beds in July. There is no jacuzzi, as was stated on Home Away. It is a garden tub with jets in the master bedroom; very nice though not as advertised. There were six in our party, and the cabin could accomodate more. My boys loved the pool table upstairs in the loft. As far as location, we drove to Helen twice and would stay a little closer to there next time, as there is nothing to do in Young Harris. We took the boys to Vogel State Park and rode bikes, went tubing in Helen, and hiked Ana Ruby Falls. (all beautiful)

Cozy At Bear Pause

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was so cozy and inviting! We enjoyed the swing & beautiful view especially. My Rehearsal Dinner for our daughters wedding went off beautifully. Everyone was so complimentary of the place.... All the kids enjoyed the fire pit and the nearby creek! Cannot say enough good things about the cabin! Was wonderful to connect with family & friends AND get back to nature! Thank you for sharing the cabin! 😊

Beautifully appointed and equipped

  • 5 of 5

Bear Pause was a delightful property, equipped with anything you might need. Beds were quite comfortable, and the cabin decor a delight. Although we were only 6, the cabin would easily accommodate 10. We would definitely recommend Bear Pause, and look forward to returning ourselves.

Thankful Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

My extended family decided to have Thanksgiving at Bear Pause this year. We enjoyed the cabin and the time together very much. The kitchen was very well-equipped which was great since we were cooking the "big" meal together. The layout of the cabin was spacious enough for 4 teenagers and their parents. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were large. Many fun things to do both in and out of the cabin. We will definitely look in to staying at Bear Pause again.

P.S. The gas fireplace was great when the weather turned colder than expected.
