About the owner: Arriving from the Europe, we have invested in the beautiful state of Alabama and are now the proud owners of the Bear's Den Vacation Resort. We have developed this site ourselves, building all the homes and now do all the groundwork and maintenance ourselves. We live and breath this wonderful location. You need anything during your stay just ask, night or day, and if we possibly can we will deliver. We are present periodically but always in the background. We feel that we have put a little of ourselves into the venture and are so proud and happy that you have chosen our resort for your vacation.

All properties are new to the public in 2014 with superb layout, facilities and furnishings.
