With almost a half acre of meadow, Bears Den is conveniently located to Cherokee and Bryson City, NC.

Bears Den is well-appointed and perfect for a couple or small family. Bear Décor fills this glowing log cabin.

Leather sofas and a gas fireplace grace the living room.

The kitchen is well-equipped if you want to eat in. If you don't feel like cooking, a variety of restaurants are just minutes away in Cherokee -- with options ranging from Ruth's Chris Steakhouse with USDA prime rib and a world-class wine list over to ma and pa restaurants with native flair like Paul's serving American styled food alongside Cherokee inspired cuisine.

Stay connected while being away from it all with Wi-Fi at the cabin.

After a long day of adventures and travelling, sink into the Queen bed in the master bedroom and enjoy satellite TV.
The second bedroom has a King bed, which can be converted into two twins at your request. The second bedroom also has satellite TV.

Enjoy the fresh mountain air from the covered porch, or the large yard. Relax in the shade using the porch swing. Grill out and then eat at the picnic table in the sunny meadow.

A gem in the Smokys, Bears Den is a superb spot to enjoy all the Smokys have to offer. Harrahs Cherokee Casino and Event Center is just a few minutes away. Feel like absorbing some culture? The Oconaluftee Indian Village, the "Unto These Hills" outdoor docu-drama, and the Museum of the Cherokee Indian are all just a few minutes away. White-water rafting on the Tucksagee and Nantahala Rivers are a short drive. Tubing on the Oconaluftee River or at Deep Creek are great ways to cool off in the summer. Soar through the trees on the Nantahala Gorge Zipline Canopy Tours.

Bears Den is also less than an hour from The Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are about an hour and a half scenic drive through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

What a beautiful cabin! In spite of the heavy rain, we still enjoyed our stay in your "piece of heaven." Your Christmas decorations were so charming and inviting!! Our little grandson walked in and his little jaw dropped. Bryson City was so sweet and the Polar Express was magical for all of us . Hope to return.

We arrived late on a Friday evening, so it was very helpful to have the key in the lockbox and not have to go to a separate location to retrieve it. The directions were perfect and we found the cabin easily. It was clean, quiet, and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The front porch and the hot tub were our favorites. But everything was very comfortable. We went hiking in the GSMNP.

I love the cabin rentals each and every time I visit. Would never stay anywhere else. The team members at the GSCR are very friendly and helpful. I have stayed at Smoky Mountain Cabin rentals many times & will continue using them for all my mountain vacation stays. I love the cabins & peacefulness. I also love the views and site seeing around the areas. Each time I visit I never want to leave. I look forward to my next visit! We loved the hot tub in the gazebo

We arrived Friday afternoon and settled in and relaxed for a while. We visited the Casino a couple of times and Dillsboro. The rest of the time was spent relaxing and enjoying sitting on the deck. We didn't want to leave but are looking forward to returning to Bears Den in June. We love this place!
