It was a beautiful view and a nice cabin to stay in and enjoy family time.

My friends and I had a really amazing time at Bear Bottoms Welcome. The house was perfectly sized for the four of us, the bedrooms were very comfortable, and the view was to die for! We made great use of the firepit (S'MORES!!) and spent tons of time outside. My only complaint was getting past the gate into the community. We followed the instructions given and the gate never opened up on the first try. We would have to press the code many times before the gate would open. We never even figured out what we were doing right to get it open - it would just magically open after at least 10 tries. Overall, I was very happy with this home and would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Josh. We are glad you enjoyed this home and apologize for any issues with the community access gate. We will follow up with the appropriate parties to inspect the gate for any repair needed, and we hope to host you again in the near future!

The view was unmatched. The seclusion and isolation is what we wanted. We had not had a family vacation in 25 years. The Vacasa app is a permanent fixture on my phone now.

We enjoyed our 3 nights here... comfortable beds, nice family room, coolest garbage can ever. The outside areas are not being maintained, so there are lots of weeds and tree saplings growing up everywhere and the parking spot is muddy/sandy. Overall, it really was a nice place to stay and we’d stay there again.

Our family of three thoroughly enjoyed our seven nights in this large, comfortable home. Of course, the views from the deck were a highlight - absolutely stunning! We also enjoyed the downstairs bar area (especially playing darts) and making s'mores at the fire pit on the rock patio.

We loved everything about this place! The location is great, the views are beyond spectacular and the peace and serentiy is unmatched. The decor is so adorable with a cute quilt theme throughout. It is so very well equipped you could host Thanksgiving dinner here,lol. It was very clean. The drive up is steep and I wouldn't want to do it first time in the dark, so I recommend getting there during the daylight. The property managment was great to work with and quick to communicate. We will definetly be back!!

The views are amazing! The home is beautifully decorated. It is conveniently located close enough to many attractions.

The cabin was everything we envisioned. We took our 2 adult children and their spouses on a family get away to a beautiful spot in North Carolina. The Cabin had so much room, awesome views and everything you need to have a relaxing time.
We highly recommend Smoky Mountains River Adventures for Double Duckies down the Tuck river.

Loved the views from the cabin. Ride up to the cabin was steep but wasn’t too bad after you get up the first time. Cabin was centrally located not far from Cherokee and Bryson city. Very cozy and has about everything you need for your stay. Enjoyed our stay!

Spacious and comfortable cabin. Beautiful view.

I loved the peace of sitting on the porch each morning enjoying the view as I drank coffee. My son lives in the area, he came in one day we had a big family breakfast then went to Cherokee. This cabin is close to Cherokee, Bryson City, and Dillsboro. The three floors worked well also for ones that go to bed early and us that stay up late. Would love to return again to relax.
