About the property

Bearfoot Retreat, Streamside Home, Pet-Friendly & only 8 minutes from Cashiers

The Bearfoot Retreat is the perfect escape from the hot, hectic city to a cool, serene setting. We furnished the huge great room with oversized leather sofas and chairs, giving it a comfortable mountain feel. Complete with a wood burning fireplace, this beautiful room opens up to an expansive wrap-around deck with seating for 12. Enjoy relaxing on the deck while listening to the tranquil sounds of the stream below. The Bearfoot Cottage sits on 1 acre of flat land - rare to find in the mountains! This allows for fun lawn sports - croquet, bocce ball, badminton or tossing a football. Complete your day enjoying the beautiful sunset on the deck.

This large but cozy mountain home has a Master bedroom on the main level with a king size bed and master bath. The main level also has a large, Hi-Def TV with a full Direct TV package and wi-fi internet. The upper level has a queen bed and full bath, with French doors and private deck overlooking the stream in the back. The lower level has a second master with a king size bed and two smaller bedrooms: one with two double beds and the other with a trundle bed. There is also a private entry way in the basement, which is especially nice for a second family or older children. Surrounded by nature’s beauty the home sleeps 10.

Enjoy the many surrounding hiking trails, golf courses or boating/kayaking on Lake Glenville.

Oh, and we're dog friendly so just let us know Lassie is coming!

The spacious and fully equipped kitchen has stainless steel appliances and granite countertops.

Grill out on the new, oversized grill or dine at one of the local restaurants. The choice is yours with the town of Cashiers only 8 minutes from home and the neighboring town of Highlands only 20 minutes west.

An eclectic decorator with a generous and kind heart owns this home. We felt welcomed and cared for in ways that soothed our souls and reenergized us for the work of life in front of us.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Nancy...your compliment about Lori's decorating style is music to our ears. We are so honored that you choose to celebrate your anniversary with us and hope that you will find time to visit again. We just finished painting the entire house and the wrap-around porch, so we'd love for you to see how it looks now!

We really enjoyed the large deck overlooking the multiple creeks on the property. Our dog enjoyed laying in the smaller creek on the side yard and playing in the water. Lots of flat yard space for dogs and children.

Great location and setting

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin for kids. There is plenty of room to play outside. Its close enough to town to go get food or shop.

Everyone loved the fire pit and creek in the back. Family room and kitchen table are large enough for 8 adults.

Lovely creek side cabin

  • 5 of 5

Lovely Rustic cabin with all the essentials. We stayed for 5 nights over the Christmas holiday and the owners were kind enough to put up a tree and other decorations throughout the cabin! You can tell they take very good care of their place and it was extremely clean. There were lots of outdoor games we could play and a creekside fire pit.

There were 8 of us total, 6 adults, 2 kids and 2 dogs and we all slept comfortably. There is a bedroom with bath upstairs, the master on the main with bath, and three adjoining bedrooms on the bottom level that share a bath. Each bedroom has its own heat/ac unit which made sleeping comfortable for everyone. There is also a fenced in yard and doggie bags are provided!

There are so many amazing waterfall hikes in this area , rainbow falls being our favorite. We would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking to be in the Cashiers/Highlands area!

Quiet, peaceful, beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Bearfoot Retreat is a peaceful getaway where all you will hear is the sounds of the stream and wildlife. The fresh mountain air, along with the beautiful mountain setting, was perfect for coziness and relaxation. The stars at night are amazing! The house has everything you need and is nicely furnished/decorated.
