Ceiling fans on the porch catch fresh mountain air. Let your cares drift away on the large covered porch with rocking chairs and a porch swing. A griller’s delight, Bruins Den has a gas grill and picnic table that are just right for savoring meals.
The tall trees shading Bruins Den may inspire you to go sailing through the Nantahala National Forest on a zip line canopy tour. World-famous comedians and musicians are just 20 minutes away surrounded by the flashing lights and restaurants at Harrahs Cherokee Casino. Splish, splash, tug, tug – t’s about a 20 minute drive to fishing on Fontana Lake and fly fishing on the Oconaluftee River, the best stocked river in the Southeast. Thrilling white water rafting, mountain biking, and curvy drives on the Tail of the Dragon, are all nearby making Bruins Den the perfect smoky mountain basecamp for your next trip.

Kept checking on us to be sure everything was OK. We've spent Christmas or Thanksgiving in the mountains for the last five years.
