About the Property
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Our Craftsman-style cottage features old-world decor and comfort-inspired furnishings – the perfect escape for guests with discerning tastes. Nature greets you each morning as you sip a steaming cup of coffee, in a comfy chair, overlooking a natural stream. After a day of fun-filled outdoor activities, cozy up to a crackling fire and soft music, with a glass of wine and good book.
Our sleeping arrangements are ideal for a party of eight: The gracious king master suite, charming queen second bedroom and cozy third bedroom (with 4 twins) are a bedtime treat as you sink into designer bedding and luxurious hotel linens. And there's nothing better than catching up with family or friends over a delectable meal or dining al fresco in the comfort of our spacious screened-in patio.
Good times begin at the Lake Club where two glistening pools overlook the majestic lake and mountain vista. Soak in the sunshine while the kids try out the pool slide. Take in a doubles game at nearby tennis courts or explore the lake by canoe, kayak or pontoon. The rustic lounge and bar hits the spot for a nite cap or a sun-break. Rainy day? No problem, relax in the lodge-style tavern, treat yourself to a delectable meal, a movie in the 20-seat theater or catch up on the latest score in front of a roaring fire.
There's something for everyone at Bear Lake Reserve: Over 15 miles of hiking trails and walking paths, a Nicklaus Design® 9-hole golf course with 3400'+ panoramic views, lake streams and ponds teeming with trout and more. Within a 60-minute drive you'll find some of the most breathtaking waterfalls and overlooks. For the outdoorsman or athletically inclined there's boating, water or snow skiing, snowboarding, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, four-wheeling, fly-fishing—the list goes on and on.
If you prefer to take things at a slower pace: Tour historic Biltmore Estate, Gardens & Winery, step further back in time at Cherokee's Okonaluftee Indian Village or treat yourself to a spa day at the 42,000 sq. ft Grove Park Inn Spa. Want to shop 'til you drop? Then check out one of the many high-end boutique, gift or antique shops in nearby Highlands.
There's so much to experience and enjoy you'll find yourself coming back, time after time, to the Great Smoky Mountains. We'd love to have you visit—so call and book your vacation with us today.

About: Chris & Dawn and Tom & Angie are proud owners of the Cottage at Bear Lake Reserve. When we aren't busy with our careers in sales and marketing or contracting business, we like to travel locally or internationally and enjoy entertaining family and friends. We also like to spend as much time at our cottage and Bear Lake as possible. It's the perfect escape. Our interests include outdoor sports and activities, sight-seeing, enjoying the arts, attending cultural events, and sharing a mutual love of great wines. Giving back to community is also important to us and we've volunteered and raised money for a number of organizations including the American Heart Association, March of Dimes, Breast Cancer Society, American Diabetes Association, Big Brothers and Big Sisters and Second Harvest.
Why Tuckasegee, NC, USA:
Bear Lake Reserve® has blended unspoiled nature, outdoor entertainment and luxurious amenities seamlessly to create a memorable vacation experience for kids of all ages. The surrounding mountains, pristine waters, private resort and neighboring communities ensure that there's something appealing to every interest and taste year round, 24/7. And the location is ideal—you're far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city yet close to art and culture, entertainment and a host of outdoor activities. You can do just about anything or absolutely nothing surrounded by nature at its absolute best.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We consider our cottage at Bear Lake Reserve as our home away from home. It's the perfect retreat for every season—mild springs give way to sun-filled summers, crisp fall evenings with stunning foliage and the quiet stillness of snow covered winters. Serene woods, a crystal clear brook that runs along our property and nearby trails provide the perfect setting to slip away and recharge.
