Brand New 2 BR 2 Bath Log Cabin with Mountain View
Brand New 2 BR 2 Bath Log Cabin with Mountain View
This cabin was just finished in 2014. Granite countertops, stainless appliances, hardwood floors, HDTV, Blu-Ray, Stone gas fireplace, gas grill, covered parking, great views and excellent location. Blasted into the rock along Thunderstruck Ridge overlooking a beautiful valley along the Blue Ridge Parkway, just a few minutes from Maggie Valley in the Cranberry Falls/Hornbuckle area. We are at 5,000 ft. elevation.
Enjoy the outdoor deck in the trees and the peace and quiet from being off of the road and below the ridgeline so no highway sounds to bother you. No neighbors right next door either! Look up at the highest point around here, called Water Rock Knob, where you can be in just 4 miles and take in spectacular views of Tennessee and the surrounding mountain peaks, or jump onto the Parkway in the other direction and arrive at the Smokey Mountain National Park in just 15 miles.
If you miss civilization, Cherokee and the famous Harrah's Casino is just 12 miles away. Not a gambler? It is still worth a visit as they have some of the best restaurants around. Bryson City and the Great Smokey Mountain Railway and Asheville and the Biltmore House are both within 45 minutes too. Of course right in town we have the popular Ghost Town in the Sky and the Catalooche ski resort and Ranch. Trails and waterfalls are everywhere.
As far as parking is concerned we have included a few photos for your review. We have paved the drive for maximum traction and added a carport for covered parking. All small and mid-sized SUV's will be able to turn around in the parking area and drive back up the driveway. Another option is to park up on the street level in our private parking area with your second or larger vehicles.
From the leather sofa and recliner to the rustic bed sets, log frame beds, infared grill, and stainless appliances you will stay in style and comfort at the Bear's Den. Come see us, you will not be disappointed.TripAdvisor property ID 1967109...Read more

We traveled with a dear couple from England and were more than pleased with this rental!. It was spotlessly clean, comfortable, beautiful and very quiet and relaxing. We only wish we could have stayed longer. Everything exceeded our expectations and Jim, the owner, was as warm and welcoming as though we had known him all along. Hope to be returning soon!

From the moment we arrived at the cabin, we were all blown away at the beauty that surrounded us. Once inside the cabin, we were all very impressed (and one of us is a Real Estate Appraiser). I've stayed in many rental cabins and condo's, but I've never seen one that was as beautifully designed and built with such high quality materials. I didn't feel like I was in a "rental". I felt like I had entered a "home". Everything we needed was available. My friend and I kept saying "I bet we need to buy _____." I'm telling you, down to the "chip clip", it was available. We made our way to the grocery store and cooked to our hearts delight without ever needing any cookware or utensils.
From the entry way to the bathrooms, living room, fireplace and kitchen, it was all amazing, but let's talk about the deck. Absolutely beautiful!!! To wake up every morning and see those beautiful mountains was a blessing. Serenity at it's best. We'd sit on that deck in the mornings then again at the end of the day, and we both marveled at the quiet & stillness that it offered. All you could hear was nature and your own thoughts. How many times do we, living in 2014, get to be at peace with nature and just our own thoughts. Unless you're blessed enough to live on top of a mountain full time, I'd say rarely.
It snowed the last 2 nights of our visit. The driveway is steep and it was covered in snow. Jim, owner of the cabin, had contacted me prior to the first snowfall and let me know to park at the top of the drive. On the day of our departure, he worked tirelessly to remove snow and ice from the drive, drove down the drive with his ATV & trailer, took our luggage to the top of the hill and helped us to load the SUV. He was definitely our hero that day (4 women with luggage is a nightmare without having to pull it up a steep drive).
I titled my review "Beware! You'll never want to stay anywhere else ever again!!!" because throughout my travels, I've never stayed anywhere that was as nice as Bear's Den cabin in Maggie Valley, NC. I will definitely be returning!!!

The cabin is excellent with upgrades through out...however, that rustic feeling is still there. There are two great big beds in two nice sized bedrooms. Lovely linens and two well appointed bathrooms. The great room was terrific with a beautiful fireplace that is cozy and adds to the charm. I really appreciated the wonderful deck off the front of the porch - what a view. There is a grill which we used and thoroughly enjoyed. We didn't use the fire pit, but there was wood there for us had we the inclination. It was great to sit on the great room leather furniture and watch the colorful mountain views out the picture window or the fire crackling after dark. All-in-all, we are definitely returning. It was a great week!! Thanks for the memories!!!!

My spouse and I stayed at this cabin on a mountainside in August. Everything about it was grand. It was easy to get to and not far from plenty of mountain vacation activities. The house itself was splendidly decorated and equipped with the finest appliances and accessories. The ownership was easy to connect with and ready and able to accommodate any question or need. I would without hesitation recommend this property. Clean, cozy, rustic, and still modern.

We are Floridians as well and couldn't have been more pleased with what we found at the Bears's Den. We looked at each other with smiles as we walked into the cabin and saw the view, the tastefulness of the decor, and the quality of the construction and furnishings. Then we walked out onto the deck to a temperature in the high 70s (in August!) and to a quiet broken only by hummingbirds coming to the feeder. This cabin was built by someone who loves the mountains and shows respect for the environment and the guests who stay here. Although near the top of the mountain it takes only a few minutes down a charming winding road to reach Maggie Valley and nearby Waynesville. If you are looking for a getaway from heat, humidity and a respite from a hectic schedule, this is THE place.

My wife and I were looking for a mid summer break from the florida heat and humidity. We love the Ashville area and had heard from friends about how beautiful the Maggie Valley area is, so we decided to give it a try this trip. We were not disappointed. The brand new 2 bedroom log cabin we found on trip advisor measured up to or exceeded every thing we were looking for. The cabin is at 5,000 feet situated in a heavily forrested area with beautiful mountain views from the deck. The peace and quiet of the location is superb, and the cabin is fully equipped with all the amenities including a washer and drier. The cabin is beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable, and the king sized bed in the master suite is one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in away from home. We especially appreciated the gas fireplace in the living area-we had 2 rainy days during the week we were there, and the fireplace made the living room very cozy-The blue ridge parkway is less than 2 miles away, and gives easy access to the spectacular scenery from the Great Smoky mountain national park, Asheville, Cherokee, Bryson City, and a host of other activities. Jim the owner lives down the road from the cabin, and is a great host. He let us know when we arrived that he was available immediately to help with any problems, and was a font of knowledge on the local area and recommendations for what to see and do.
We completely enjoyed our experience and would love to come back some day--great value for the money
