Lovely Mountain House w/Balcony/Deck/Private Hot Tub/Fire Pit/AC/WiFi/Game Room

Enjoy total seclusion away from it all when you book this spacious two-level home for your next mountain getaway with friends and family! A modern take on the classic mountain lodge, this house has all the comforts and conveniences you've been hoping to find. The second-level main living area features an all-wood interior with high cathedral ceilings supported by exposed wood beams, plus burnished floors, rustic décor, a flatscreen TV, and lots of comfortable furniture, all crowned by a majestic, stacked-stone wood-burning fireplace. The full kitchen has lots of stainless steel appliances that include a french-door refrigerator, a center prep island, countertop appliances, and lots of counter space to work over. The breakfast bar has three barstools for those afternoon snacks and the dining room table has enough seats for up to six guests. After dinner, let the dishwasher knock out all those dirty dishes then head out to the furnished private deck, right off the dining room, to enjoy a refreshing beverage with spectacular mountain views.

When it's time to call it for the night, you'll have two second-level bedrooms to enjoy, the main room with an en-suite bath, a gas log fireplace, and deck access, with the private hot tub right outside. In the guest bedroom, you'll find a mounted ladder that leads up to a loft area, plus access to a screened-in porch that includes the home's private gas grill. Downstairs, the first-level game room includes air hockey, a flatscreen TV mounted above a stacked-stone fireplace, balcony access, and sleeping accommodations for extra guests. When you're not out on a fantastic hot-weather hike, kick back in the private hot tub or gather around the firepit for an evening of quiet stargazing. Take advantage of the private washer/dryer to keep everyone's laundry sparkling clean while you're here. Use the free WiFi to research your next mountain adventure or download a fun recipe to try out with the kids. The home's central air conditioning and ceiling fans will keep everything nice and cool during your stay.

What's nearby:
The trail leads into Nantahala National Forest, and you'll find Burningtown Falls just three miles west, where you can see some beautiful natural waterfalls. Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts is just 10 miles east with a 1,500-seat venue for professional theater, dance festivals, concerts, films, comedies, and more.

Two Bears Cabin was ABSOLUTELY beautiful! I definitely appreciated the tip about needing 4x4. The drive way was a little rough but that was expected with it being in the mountains lol the beds were also a little too firm for my back but the couch was super comfortable lol. That’s the only negative I can even say. The air hockey table was awesome at keeping the kids occupied and that hot tub was AMAZING! The view itself was worth the trip! All together it was a perfect getaway for our family. I’d definitely recommend to all my friends and family, and will likely book again in the future.

OMG, idk why more people aren’t talking about the heated floors! ❤️ Based on others reviews, the driveway was as expected. So cozy and welcoming inside, really didn’t want to leave to do anything while we were there! We really didn’t have a problem with WiFi like others reported. The kitchen had everything we needed for meals and I really want their fridge and stove/oven!!

We enjoyed Franklin and Two Bears immensely. We were only there for one full day but we spent time walking around town, ate some great food, enjoyed the Lazy Hiker Brewery, and enjoyed the property. Definitely try to get there during daylight if you can as it will make everything about the drive up easier.

Two Bears was a wonderful place to sit back and unwind for a week. The views and the hot tub helped to make it a most relaxing getaway. Franklin was just about 15 minutes away for groceries and restaurants. For the most part, everything was serene and restful.
A few things you’ll want to consider. You will need four-wheel or all-wheel drive to get up the driveway, which is about a half-mile. The internet was quite slow. You may be able to access email and text, but we could not stream any videos, which also applies to the tv since they use streaming services. Next, the master bedroom did not have a closet or dresser for your clothes. Lastly, be prepared for Yellowjackets outside. We also had some large hornets to invade the house. Don’t let these things deter you if you’re looking to get away from a busy life though. Just take these under consideration.
