Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
There are no next door neighbors at Lazy Bear's Rest. All you'll see from the deck is the view. Situated at the edge of 25 acres certified as a Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation, Lazy Bear's Rest is the perfect romantic getaway for 2 in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Sightings of deer, wild turkeys, or even a bear or bobcat are possible.
The experience begins on the deck of this 900 square foot luxury accommodation. Enjoy the long range view of the Piedmont, Sauratown Mountain and Hanging Rock.
Once inside you'll be swept away by the interior. The living area includes a 50'' HDtv hooked to a home theater system, DVD, and CD player, gas log fireplace, full kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, ice maker, and everything you need to cook that special meal or cook on the gas grill on the deck.
The spacious bath is decorated in the Art Deco style. The bedroom, also done in Art Deco, has a queen size bed. In the closet you will find two fluffy robes to use after enjoying the sauna or hot tub, both located on the deck. In the evenings you can snuggle around the outdoor firepit.
For the outdoor enthusiasts, there is plenty of hiking in the immediate and surrounding areas,
A short hike from the cabin will get you to Lazy Bear's private spots for getting away from it all. Steps to the deck overlooking the spring pond make it easily accessible. Take a thermos with coffee and watch the sunrise from 'The Rock' at Lazy Bear Vineyard. Keep walking past Lazy Bear's Vineyard to access the short wooded path to Lazy Bear's private waterfall. There's a picnic table there, so you can pack a lunch or bring a book and listen to the water as it flows to the bottom of the mountain.

About Carol Hodges
We've been enjoying Fancy Gap since 1999 when we purchased our property. Having lived here full time since 2003, we can't say enough about Fancy Gap and the surrounding area. Personally, we enjoy the peacefulness and serenity of Fancy Gap Mountain. The views are spectacular and, on a clear evening, we can see all the way to the lights of High Point, NC! Our interests lie outdoors - whether it's hiking, riding our ATVs, or sitting on 'The Rock' looking out over the Piedmont. It's all here - come see for yourself.
Carol Hodges purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Carol Hodges chose Fancy Gap
We live on the mountain and built Lazy Bear's rest in 2004. Our goal was to create a place for two people to get away from it all and enjoy each other's company. It's worked. We've had two weddings on the property. It's not unusual to hear that our guests are honeymooning or celebrating an anniversary.
What makes this Cabin unique
The Art Deco theme of the interior is not often seen in the mountains. When you're outside, you can walk to our private waterfall or Lazy Bear's Rock. Sit by our little spring pond and listen to the birds. Meditate on the medicine wheel. It's all here for our guests to enjoy.

Very clean and well maintained.
My wife and I rented this property for the weekend for our anniversary. The owners were very quick to respond to questions. Upon arriving, the property reflected what the photos show. Beautiful views from the back deck and hot tub, nice layout, very clean and you can tell this property has been well taken care of. Plenty of local restaurants within a short drive.
So glad you enjoyed the views and your stay at Lazy Bears Rest.
Peaceful, relaxing, beautiful!!! My wife and I loved our stay!!! So much more than expected, the pics online don't do it justice!!! We will definitely be back!!
So glad you enjoyed your stay! Hope you got to take in the awesome winter views from the deck and the property below. Come back soon
What a great place
We loved our stay at this beautiful cabin and property. We wish we were able to stay longer! Definitely read the directions because only Google Maps got us to the cabin. Our vehicle GPS was wrong. The cabin is well stocked and not too far from restaurants, grocery stores and shopping. There are also a lot of winery's around as well. We'd definitely stay again!
We are glad you enjoyed Lazy Bears Rest. The scenery in the winter can be awesome, with the leaves off the trees. We hope you do choose our place again soon.
Amazing Weekend Getaway!
Had the most amazing time getting away from the craziness of our lives for a weekend in a wonderfully cozy cabin in a beautiful setting!
Glad you could escape the everyday rat race and renew and relax. Come back again.
Beautiful property with amazing views!
We absolutely enjoyed our mountain getaway and have made visiting this cabin a yearly tradition now!
Great to have you as our guests again.
Very Nice Cabin
Everything we expected for a quiet weekend. A couple of the reviews we read had us worried about the privacy but no worries at all once we arrived. Everything we were hoping for.
Glad you enjoyed your experience and that you found everything to be up to your expectations. Hope you get to return.
