I live in SC and work as a RN at Palmetto Health Baptist in Columbia. I have six wonderful Children and one great Husband. We live on a farm and do the best we can at being part-time farmers and full-time employees elsewhere. After we rented a Cabin back in 2010 we started looking for a place of our own. We looked long and hard before we found Bearadise. We are so happy that we did. Now we want to share it with you. So have a happy stay and Thank you for visiting Bearadise. :)

SUZANNE OSMER purchased this cabin in 2011

Why SUZANNE OSMER chose Smoky Mountains

We fell in love with the beautiful little town of Brasstown; the people are friendly and welcoming to their community. There are several activities for the children and adults. We had a desire to be on water and when we saw the beauty of this cabin and the creek frontage we were hooked.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this cabin - it had everything we needed for a quiet weekend, but it was also fun to take some day trips around western North Carolina mountain towns. Just sitting on the porch and listening to the creek was so relaxing. Thank you!

Property is just what you like when staying in the mountains

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The cabin is ideal and the creek makes this place extra special. The only problem is that I am trying to get in touch with Susan Osmer since the day we left because I lost my diamond wedding band. I sent two emails thru homeaway asking if she would be so kind as to respond to my plea for help in trying to locate my wedding band and haven't heard any response. Losing my wedding band has consumed my thoughts ever since I left. I have no idea why I haven't received a response and have no way to contact her besides this review so I apologize to everyone who must read this. Please Susan Osmer recognize my plea for any response whether the news is good or bad. All the links we communicated thru prior to our visit do not work any longer. Help! Lorraine & Robert stayed from 7-29 thru 8-7-2016

The cabin was a great choice for us during our time at John Campbell Folk School. We

enjoyed the porch facing the creek so much! We spend this week in Brasstown every year and

hope we can come stay again!
