Almost our whole family came to stay at this cabin, some came early, some later and all had a wonderful time, taking lots of daytrips and relaxing with cookouts in the evenings. The younger generation played in the creek, trying to get across and back over the stones, playing in the clear waters and not having to be afraid of one encounters here in Florida. We had comfortable beds, enough blankets for the delightfully cool nights, and lots of hot water for all the showers. We thorouthly enjoyed ourselves.

Best Value and location

We stayed at the Bears Den for three nights while in Maggie Valley. The house has room for 8 people, 6 was in our group. Is very clean and has a washer and dryer. Located close to shops and places to eat. Our next trip to this area will include a stay at the Bears Den.

It Was A Very Relaxing And Enjoyable Stay. The View Was Breath Taking. We Watched The Cows, Wild Trukeys And The Birds, Which Was Very Relaxing.the Cabin Was Very Nicely Decorated And Clean. All The Conviences Of Home. Ref. Wiht Ice Maker And Dishwasher. The Kitchen Was Very Furnished For All The Cooking. We Left On Tues. And The Dump Fill Was Closed So We Did Have A Problem Wiht The Trash. If It Could Be Left In The Trash Cans Outside Would Have Been Very Nice. Would Definitey Stay Again.




wonderful place to vacation in the mountains of NC. Three couples enjoyed the home during a four day vacation while attending the apple festival. The homeowner was very accomodating to our needs. would certainly stay again.




We Had A Lovely Month At The Bears Den In Maggie Valley, N. C. The House Was So Cozy And Complete And Well Situated For Company With Their Own Little Area Downstairs. Was Very Easy Dealing With The Owner, Ken Hardy, And It Was Beginning To Feel Like Home Being There. Do Get Off The Main Road In Maggie Valley. We Found Wonderful Areas Like Homes, Resorts, Elk, The Country Club, The Ski Area And A Wonderful Horse Ranch That We Hope To Take Our Grandson To Next Summer Called The Cataloochee Ranch. A Lot Of Hidden Treasures. We Would Not Hesitate Going There Again. Dick And Linda Shanahan

4th of July Family Get-Together

This was a great place for our children and grandchildren to meet to have some family time. The house was large enough to accommodate us all comfortably. The shaded deck was our favorite hangout place. The house stayed comfortably cool with nothing but open windows and ceiling fans. The area gave lots of opportunity for exploration and privacy. The gated community was well kept and we felt completely safe. We hope to make this a yearly (or more often) tradition at the Bears Den.

Corvette Club has fun.

We had 4 couples and this cabin was great. We drove our Corvettes and this cabin is perfect for Vettes as all of the roads are paved. The community is quiet and the area very beautiful. The large deck was a perfect place for us to have breakfast in the mornings and hang out, having fun in the evenings. We will be recommending this cabin to our friends.

This home was perfect. We had 2 families together and we never got in each others way. The home is very spacious with the perfect floor plan. The view is amazing. The home is centrally located so attractions are with in an hour drive in several directions.

The cabin's located in a gorgeous gated area, it sits on a fantastic mountain top with mountain views all around and I just cant express how wonderful this trip was for me and my family! Thanks for sharing your lovely cabin with my family. :-)

Super location

A great place to stay! The house is spacious and nicely furnished. My husband loved sitting in the huge comfy chair and watching the big screen TV. My favorite part was sitting in the rocking chair listening to the birds singing and the sounds of the creek. Thanks Ken for sharing your home with us, and for quickly responding to our inquiries while we were there.

We really enjoyed the place. Everything was set for our relaxation. The beds were comfortable. The area and view was beautiful. Now that we enjoyed the place, were thinking of coming there again next year. Thank you for making the cabin feel like our own home.

A wonderful retreat

We really enjoyed our experience at this cabin. The layout of the cabin is great and view from the deck and/or the balcony is terrific. The quiet, the trees and the mountain air are a wonderful combination. The cabin is everything that Ken says it is. I would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful! Wonderful!

Thanks so much Ken! Your place was awesome. Our family of six loved your home and the location was just what we were looking for. Everything in your home was first class and we had everything we needed. Thanks for your responsiveness to any questions we had. It was like having a vacation host at our service the way you answered questions about places to go or see. Thanks for even taking care of us when our truck broke down for a day! I'm sure we will be back in the future.

Wonderful holiday home central to everything

This well layed out home made our visit absolutely wonderful. It made it easy for us to enjoy the home as a group and also had places to go for privacy. The setting around the home is so peaceful we really enjoyed the patio for socializing and eating. Your home couldn't have been more centrally located. Close to Asheville, Cherokee casinos and Waynesville. In case no one has told you the trout fishing nearby is out of this world and the motorcycle museum is wonderful. Thank goodness your drive is paved. It made handling our motorcycles very easy. We'll be back.

Awesome Mtn Home - Awesome Location

I have stayed at this property many times over the last 2 years. The home is spacious, very warm/homey, and has been completed refreshed, inside and out. The decks outside are a great place to spend the cool summer evenings. The home is about a 1 mile walk from the center of Maggie Valley, and offers an ideal location. The home is in a gated community, which is nice, with many areas right around the cabin to walk/hike. No driving necessary - you can get a great workout, and enjoy some nice excursions right out the front door.
