Bears Den's location and amenities were just right!

Just there for 4th of July weekend. Only 5 minutes to NOC and 30 minutes to Fontana Dam and marina. Very nice and can accommodate several families comfortably. Air conditioning works very well.

What fun! Planned a quick weekend trip to Bryson City. Cute cabin. Very clean. Loved the little town of Bryson City and the shops. The hot tub was a great place to unwind at the end of a long day hiking on Deep Creek trails. A few waterfalls along the way. Hope to come back in the fall. I'm sure the colors are gorgeous.

We really enjoyed our stay at this cabin. It's located between the NOC and Bryson City. Perfect for all of the activities that we had planned during the day. The fire pit outside is amazing.
