Out of this wurl

  • 5 of 5

The Red Bear Cabin is a great place for a get away or a seasonal Vacation. The location is perfect. It's far enough from the main road but convenient to go out to Cashiers Glenville & Highlands or the Village Green concert. The Russell's were great & the historic pontoon ride epic ! Should I say more. Hope to b back soon. Jane & George

Perfect Holiday Location

  • 5 of 5

Mike & Mark,

Thank you so much for sharing your family home with my family. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday we will remember always.

The kitchen was well stocked and had plenty of room for us to prepare Thanksgiving dinner for 20 (even though there were only 8 of us). There was plenty of space for all of us to eat together, noone had to sit at the kids table....well, I guess all of us were at the kids table, young and old!

The bedrooms were so spacious and the beds, linens and pillows begged us to sleep in. I'm thankful we didn't as we might have missed watching a doe swim across the brisk water of the lake our first morning at the cabin. I will try to send the video as it was amazing for all of us to witness.

We are nature lovers so we took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather with all the outdoor activities tour cabin has to offer. While the fellows kayaked, us chicks enjoyed walking the shoreline, identifying wildlife tracks in the sand and banking in the sunlight in your wide choices of outdoor seating areas.

My brother's 16 year old triplets really enjoyed the holiday! They had the downstairs to themselves, cooked breakfast every morning, and enjoyed spending time as a family in the spacious living room.

Thank you for making sure we had all the necessities for cooking Thanksgiving dinner and for making sure we felt at home. We truly look forward to seeing you again this Spring/Fall!

Owner's Response: WOW, You saw a Deer swim across the Lake. I hope I can post that video on here. Thx Teresa, When I spoke to you, I knew you were going to be a great group of guests. How true it was ! & since my brother & I are twins, we really enjoyed meeting the triplets. Your Thanksgiving was special as was ours ! Happy holidays ! Mike & Mark Russell

A perfect summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect cabin to relax. The view, the cabin and all the amendities ( kayak and pontoon boat) filled our week with lovely adventures.

Morning kayak trips to falls and trails then just chillaxing with morning coffee and evening barbecues was a hit for adults and teenagers. I would love to come back here with more friends

Great views and fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a week and had a wonderful time. The location is spectacular as the house sits on an elevated lot right on the lake, so you have an amazing, panoramic view of Lake Glenville, which is clearly the star of the show. The drive into Cashiers is only about five minutes and you can get to Sylva (and Walmart) in about 40. Nearby are many fun natural attractions like waterfalls, national forests and state parks. The home is well appointed and a great design for most groups. The two main bedrooms are on the upper (main) floor (we had the adults up there) and the lower floor is a bit more wide open and was perfect for the kids, aged 8 to 16. The kitchen has been updated fairly recently and the home is nicely furnished. The home has a dock which we used as a swimming platform. Just stroll down the steps and jump in the lake -- great. The drawbacks on this home are minor. First, the unpaved road from highway 107 is a fairly typical unpaved mountain road which may give pause to flatlanders -- but I think it is par for the course in the mountains. Second, the home is older, so the plumbing is a little quirky and it is not appointed with state-of-the-art appliances. It's more "quaint" than "upscale." Our family likes to cook and the kitchen met all of our needs. We found the home clean and the owners were very hospitable. We will be back next year.
