- Here's What Past Guests Had to say about Bear Hug Cabin

- "The cabin is exactly what we expected from it's posting online and had everything we needed for us while we chilled for two days. We never left the cabin except to hike up to the top of the mountain." - Jim

- "Great experience with GSCR. They made booking and getting into our cabin a breeze! The Bear Hug Cabin was incredible! Amazing view, amazing city, and awesome hot tub!" - Johnnie

- "The staff (Cathie and Kelli) were very friendly and most helpful.  They were more than willing to answer all our questions and to assist with finding the cabin.  The instructions were very detailed and easy to follow. The cabin was everything we had hoped for.  The pictures on the website were true to form.  The only draw back was the road getting to the cabin.  There were a lot of pot holes causing the car to hit bottom.  I would have felt better if we had a four wheel drive vehicle. We wanted the feel of camping to enjoy the outdoors with the sunsets and sunrises and not be stuck in a hotel room. " - Edward

This was a perfect trip to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary. The views, local dining, Deep Creek hiking and tubing, Water Rock Knob and relaxing were some of our favorites. Can't wait to return.

Staff was extremely helpful. It was great that staff checked in with us and didn't wait for us to make contact. Of course everything was perfect so we didn't actually need anything. Best vacation ever!!! It was perfect! We were looking for some quiet rest and relaxation and found it. And the view! the day after we got home, we both wanted to go back to 'our cabin'. The patio was so inviting. We know we'll be back and can hardly wait! Thank you for doing what you do so well!

Bear Hug cabin certainly did 'Hug' us and provide the peace and tranquility that we wanted. We celebrated a birthday enjoying the hot tub in the rain with fireflies twinkling around us. The cool mountain mornings on the porch while listening to the leaves rustling, the breeze and the birds chirping offered the perfect start to the day. Thank you!

The cabin was truly wonderful. The view was breathtaking. We spent most of our time outside. The weather was perfect for a camp fire and relaxing in the Hot Tub. Spent one day hiking the Alum Cave Trail - highly recommend. Already planning our next trip back!

Cabin coziness, cabin coffee, mountain calling, heat therapy, the smell of dirt, birds singing, raging river rafting, chasing waterfalls, tail of the dragon drive, BBQ Pineapple and Baby Back Ribs, Squirrel silhouettes, smoky sunrises...all mountain magicalness. Thank you Bear Hug for hugging us!

My husband and I came for a surprise birthday weekend. We had an amazing time! The cabin was so comfortable - exactly what we needed. The views are breathtaking! We enjoyed strolling through town, took a train ride and had a wonderful meal at the Everett Hotel. Spent the rest of the time relaxing on the front porch and sitting in the Hot Tub. We will be back!!

Our 1st Anniversary trip. The cabin was wonderful and private. We thoroughly enjoyed sunsets and sunrises! The rain on the roof is good too! The Hot Tub was great to relax in every night! The grill and kitchen were great for cooking your own meals. Hiked to The Road to No Where and Deep Creek. Neat adventures, even found a few antiques. Thanks for everything!
