Property description

'High Point Hideaway' aka " Little Bear Lodge" is a very private, wonderful, green, solar powered waterfront home on pristine Bear Lake in the Great Smoky Mountains. To say this home is unique is an understatement. This 'Island Lodge' is surrounded by water on three sides with walk around decks and views of the lake and mountains from every deck and room. HPHA is only accessible by boat. A pontoon boat fee is added to the rental for your use during your stay. You and also upgrade to our new 115 hp Aqua Patio Pontoon. This makes for a very private lake retreat with no neighbors and views on all sides.

This rustic lodge features two fire places, a master suite with king size bed and large tile his and hers showers and bidet. The guest room has a queen bed and private bath with claw foot tub and shower. Relive your childhood on the wonderful screened sleeping porch (Standard Bed). Sleeper sofa is also included in the den for added occupancy. Great chef's kitchen with bar-stools for entertaining and a gas cook stove and oven. There are also three grills, two gas and one charcoal for all your outdoor cooking needs! Don't forget to bring you IPod, this home has a top of the line sound system, Wi-Fi and Direct TV.
** This unique property has some systems that are not conventional. There is no Central Air Conditioner rather a Crosswind air circulation system. The house was designed to open up and allow the brisk breeze over Bear Lake to cool it along with large ceiling fans. Please note that if you must have A/C this may not be your best option. It s almost always cool. There is also a Rain/ Lake Water collection system with a cistern. It has a large charcoal filter for the entire house and individual charcoal filters in the kitchen. Because of the Solar system you must conserve power where you can and if we lack some sunny days there is a backup generator to keep you going! Not a problem , you just have to be mindful and not leave on lights and fans when you not in the house.

Enjoy time outside on the expansive deck an outdoor den with a wonderful stone fireplace, lounge chairs and cedar swing. Plenty of outdoor and indoor space for entertaining.
There are two docks, a sandy swimming beach, with a canoe, kayak and water toys to pull the kids around with the pontoon boat
