About Suzan Naar

We live in Marietta and have two homes in the Blue Ridge area. We work busy hectic jobs and find the North Georgia mountains the perfect relaxing getaway. We can just relax or if we feel more active there are hundreds of thing to do.

Suzan Naar purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Suzan Naar chose Blue Ridge

The soaring ceilings of the great room and the mountain views were what attracted us to this cabin. It is nicely tucked away allowing for seclusion yet close to the Toccoa River for water sports, fishing, fun and close to the quaint town of Blue Ridge for shopping, antiquing, dining, a scenic train ride and much more.

Bear's Best is smartly laid out this soaring ceilings in the great room, a huge room size sofa, natural river rock fireplace, and you are steps away from a fully stocked kitchen. The master bedroom with a corner Jacuzzi tub is inviting as well as the hot tub on the first floor. You can even roast marshmellows around the fire pit. This home is extremely close to the Toccoa River.

What makes this cabin unique

Secluded cabin with spa, fire pit, gameroom, chef's kitchen, pet friendly, & dining for 6. Perfect roomy floorplan. Complete privacy with bed and bath on each level. Stunning mountain views with a private deck and jetted tub in the master bedroom

We ran away from our hectic lives and escaped to Bear's Best to reconnect as a family. From the first night this cozy cabin felt like home. The views from the multiple decks were spectacular, including the amazing stars that you can’t see in the city. The mountain air was cool enough for us to enjoy time outside; running around the yard, investigating different types of bugs, flowers and moss and watching the hummingbirds and a turkey vulture. It seemed we were the only bears around, although we heard rumors to the contrary. During the days, after tiring from playing and exploring the area, we rested on one of the decks and played dice games from the cabins game collection. At night, we cuddled on the couch and watched movies from the cabins movie collection. The owners thought of everything we may have needed, including small details in the kitchen making it easy to whip up dinner or a light snack in a jiffy. The cabin had quick access to town where there were a number of nearby attractions. Our host, Suzan, had guides available for us to review before heading out into the wilds of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We found some excellent hiking and fishing spots, and a great, local restaurant right on the Toccoa River. After a long day of hiking, the jetted tub is a fabulous way to relax those sore muscles. Our trip was a time of relaxation and bonding, which we will never forget and can’t wait to return to this home away from home in the mountains.

Excellent! 4.7/5 -

Wonderful weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property and are already planning on making it our annual spot! We had three couples, and it was the perfect size for each couple to have their own private space but for all of us to have a great time together! The cabin was exactly as described in the listing, and everything was in great condition. The hot tub and ping pong table were huge hits, and the view was stunning. The cabin is a short drive from downtown, and we spent a fun afternoon strolling the shops and boutiques, finishing the day with a delicious meal at Black Sheep Restaurant. I would highly recommend Bears Best as a perfect weekend getaway for a small group!

It was a typical log cabin but was very nice .

  • 4 of 5

The only negatives were the shape of the beds- desperately needs new mattresses. Clean and lots of towels and most necessities in the kitchen.

Beautiful property and nice, relaxing cabin!

  • 3 of 5

Cabin was beautiful, but several things were not taken care of before we got there. Coffee pot was broken but staff did offer to bring one out which was very kind. Grill did not have gas and hot tub would not heat up any higher than 85. We had a lovely stay, but was kind of a bummer that there were these issues.

Owner's Response: Amber, We note on the directions to the cabin that you should check the cabin to make sure it is satisfactory and report anything that is wrong within the first 2 hours of your stay or as soon as the problem is discovered. We did offer to bring out another coffee pot and you declined. Our staff found that the coffee pot was working fine and though they brought a new one there was no need to replace the old one. As for the hot tub, our cleaners found that the control panel was in program mode which is not a mode we use. In the cabin there were clear instructions that all you had to do was simply turn up the heat as we turn it down to save energy between rentals. It seems someone in your party punched a few too many buttons. It took our staff half an hour to look up how to re-program the spa to the original setting. We provide 2 propane tanks and our staff checks the levels on each tank every clean. If one tanks has propane but is low we leave it because there is a second tank ready to be hooked up. I guess you must have missed the second tank that sits next to the grill. You also may not have turned on the tank that was hooked up. You do have to open the tank before it will allow propane to pass. Again, had you called and said there was no propane we would have been happy to correct any issue but this is the first we have heard of the issue. It is very hard to fix what we don't know about.
