  • Beautiful Home & Views!

    "We had a wonderful time in Maggie Valley & so glad we had the Bear Den to come home to. The house is immaculate! The view from the deck is amazing to say the least! Only things we needed were clothes & food! We rode motorcycles on the Blue Ridge Parkway & rode some different trails. Beautiful scenery everywhere. We ate at several restaurants in & around Maggie Valley. I did not have a bad meal! Everything was delicious! Don & his wife were very helpful as well. Super nice people! Thank you for letting us enjoy your home!"

  • Authentic pioneer log cabin secluded in enchanted forest of 200 foot tall trees.

    "We thoroughly enjoyed the vacation we spent in Lazy Bear Lodge. This is a very special authentic pioneer log cabin completely secluded in an enchanted forest of 200 foot tall trees. The only person we saw in 11 days at the cabin was the gentleman who picked up the garbage. Yet the cabin is conveniently located in a charming neighborhood minutes from gas, groceries and downtown Sylva. We especially enjoyed drinking coffee on the front porch watching the morning fog while listening to the birds sing while the butterflies fluttered in the cool breezes. We loved the glow of the gas fireplace. The hot tub under the giant trees was phenomenal. We will treasure our memories forever of our special time in this storybook lodge."

  • Beautiful home with loads of privacy!

    "We had a great time at this beautiful mountain home! Bruce was wonderful to work with - very responsive and informative. The home itself was welcoming and grand at the same time. The screened in porch with outdoor fireplace, seating area and dining table was fabulous. We spent a lot of time out there enjoying the nice breezes and wonderful view. Making s'mores in the evening was a treat. The home was well appointed and decorated with tasteful artwork and furniture, while still feeling very comfortable. The master suite was huge! Plenty of room to relax. It was nice to have bathrooms for every bedroom. Everyone had their own space in the house, while still enjoying the common areas together. The sun greeted us every morning through the large back windows of the house - no window treatments on them brought the outdoors inside, which was a nice touch. Michael at the Nature Center on property was awesome! He spent time educating us about snakes and other local "neighbors" - he even gave us a mini birds of prey encounter with one of the hawks at the center. Hope, the bald eagle, was also amazing. Highly suggest stopping in to check it out. We also ventured to the Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC) for flat water kayaking - approx. 35 minutes from the front gates. Mike was our guide and he was excellent. Highly recommend going there, if only to people watch. Walked around downtown Sylva - some cute shops and cafes. Just remember that small downtown area shops close early, so give yourself enough time to explore. Overall, we had a great mountain vacation! I would recommend this house to anyone looking to get away from it all, while still having ammenities not far away."

  • Great place to stay

    "My family stayed at this cabin for 3 nights. It was very clean and had everything we needed. My children enjoyed walking all around the cabin looking at all the art work the owner had done. This added so much charm to the cabin! We enjoyed sitting on the porch and just enjoying the nature around us. We had some friends stay with us one of the nights and it held all 10 of us very comfortably! I would definitely stay here again. It was in very reasonable driving distance to waterfalls, Tubing/ whitewater rafting, shopping and restaurants. It will not disappoint! So much better than a hotel. The owner's hospitality was wonderful! We felt very welcome!"
