Description

Find your inner bear at Bruins Den. This Bryson City vacation rental has everything you need to refresh your spirit.  Bruins Den is the epitome of comfort with a sprawling layout, easy access, and all the comforts of home plus more.  This well-appointed mountain getaway features 3 bedrooms plus a loft and 3.5 baths. There’s plenty of room and plenty to do --  a beautiful mountain view sprawls through the trees before you and the large yard around Bruins Den. Roasted Marshmallows and stories await you at the fire pit under the brilliant stars.

The name Bruins Den comes from the Old English word for bear -- bruin. The Boston Bruins were also inspired to adopt their name from this symbol of strength and power.  The restorative power of relaxation awaits you at Bruins Den, where you can enjoy a refreshing view of the Great Smoky Mountains.

Start your day off right -- huge windows let in mountain sunshine. Stainless steel appliances and gleaming granite counters brighten the fully equipped kitchen.  Glowing gas logs in the living room provide a cozy ambiance for enjoying your favorite movies on the HDTV.  Spread out or snuggle up – it’s your choice with the large sectional sofa in the living room.  Who doesn’t want options?  With a second sitting area upstairs and game area, there’s plenty of space for everyone in your group to choose their own adventure.

Dreams as sweet as honey await you.  Speaking of dreams, the first bedroom is a real treat with a King bed, flat screen TV, and private bath with a large jetted bath tub. The second and third bedrooms each have a queen bed and TVs.    The alcove in the loft has two twins, which for an additional charge can be converted into another King.   To accommodate two additional guests, there’s a  queen sleeper sofa in the loft.

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 base camp for your next trip.
