About the property

Two Bed Two Bath With Mountain Views

This brand new log cabin sits along a beautiful ridgeline overlooking a small valley along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Designed with comfort in mind guests will enjoy all the amenities of home. Granite countertops, ceramic tile bathrooms, new appliances, hardwood floors, HDTV with Showtime, HBO, Starz and Encore, leather sofa and recliner, BluRay player, stone gas fireplace, Tru Infared gas grill and a nice deck sitting in the tree tops all combine to help make this property a unique experience.

The quality of the home isn't the only reason to plan your vacation here. Just as important is the setting and the location. Blasted into the rock off of the main road and below the ridgeline creates the privacy and serenity many folks are yearning for. With no highway noise you will find it so quiet that you can hear the wings of the birds as they cruise by and with no man made light nearby you will be amazed at the stars at night.

In addition to all of this the location of the property is absolutely outstanding. Only a few miles from town on a well maintained gravel road we offer a true mountain experience without sacrificing convenience. You are only one mile from the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway which is only 15 miles from the Smokey Mountain National Park. You will look up at Water Rock Knob, the highest point around with views of Tennessee and the surrounding mountain peaks, just four miles up the Parkway. You are only about 12 miles from Cherokee and the famous Harrah's Casino, Santa Land, Gem mines and more. You are situated to drive to Bryson City and the Great Smokey Mountain Railway, all of the nearby waterfalls and trails and you can still drive to Asheville and the Biltmore House in about 40 minutes.

Just so guests are well informed we have included several photo's of the driveway and carport area. When building on a ridge to achieve these great views like we have it is always difficult to carve out flat areas for parking. As you can tell we have achieved an area large enough for a mid sized SUV to come down the drive, park in the carport, turn around and drive back out. If you are driving a pickup truck or a larger sedan you will still be able to park in the carport but you would need to back up the drive (as I do at home). If you bring two vehicles there is extra parking up on the road for the second one. All in all most people will work things out depending on whether they have 4WD, AWD, FWD or 2WD.

You will be glad you choose The Bear's Den for your next vacation.

A well appointed cabin, with first class furnishings! Bring a book, a movie and enjoy the view! The master bed was 5 star! Don’t miss Waynesville, just 20 minutes south east of Maggie Valley. We will be back!

Scenic, private, modern cabin! We had a perfect week!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our stay. We were looking for a private location with scenic views and fantastic accommodations and this cabin delivered. Had everything we could possibly need. We dined out but the cabin had a fully equipped kitchen for those who’d like to find in. Upon arrival I was intimated by the steep incline in order to get to the cabin, however, by day two we had no problem manouvering our way around. Gorgeous space!! Would recommend and would love to be back.

Owner's Response: Yes everyone who first arrives stops at the top of the driveway and then slowly starts down. Like this guest said, by the next day or so they just zip up and down like nobody's business.

Great cabin in mountains with wonderful view!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was clean, neat, cozy and and very well maintained. Beds were comfortable, linens we're clean. Storm hit on the third day of our three week stay and we lost power. Owner supplied a generator so we could run the refrigerator and have lights! I would recommend this cabin to friends and family.

Beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

Bears den was beautiful with attention to detail. Lovingly decorated and very clean-more than we expected. The kitchen has everything anyone could need. There is a modern washer and dryer also. We did find the steep drive a challenge. The fireplace was very nice-just the thing for a chilly morning. The deck had a good view of the mountains. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Bears Den Maggie Valley

  • 4 of 5

First off "Maggie Valley" is a beautiful town with breathtaking views of the mountains all around! The bears den cabin was immaculate, new clean and very well decorated. Everything was in working order, with a very comfortable bed. The only down side was to many trees obstructing the view and lots of bats out at night! We took some long walks and enjoyed the mountains and nature. I would recommend this place!!!!

Owner's Response: I've had so many folks tell me how great the view is here that I was surprised these guests didn't like it. True it does close up some in the summer but you still have great views. Then again every year Mother Nature does continue to encroach so I'll take another look at it. With the leaves off in the Spring the view doesn't get any better than here. First time I've heard anyone mention bats.
