Bluff view cabin provided relaxing weekend

We enjoyed our weekend at the cabin with our family of five and mother-in-law and sister-in-law. The layout was great and the cabin was very clean. We used the loft for the little kids to sleep. The back deck was the perfect place to relax and take in the view. The kids loved the hot tub! We also made use of the side yard for the kids to blow bubbles and run around. We were a short drive from Sewanee, the Fierry Gizzard Trail and The Assembly. We had fun exploring the area and can't wait to come back another time!

Loved it !!

We had a family reunion at Lil Bear ! We had the most wonderful time ! My brother and his wife and daughter came from Tallahasse , FL,. My sister, myself and my son came from Maryville, TN. The cabin was everything as described and more. The first night (Wed. 12-26) we came there were snow flurries. We enjoyed the fireplace ! We went hiking on Thursday and on Friday we went to Chattanooga. It was raining on Friday and by the time we got home it was freezing rain. Then it turned to snow. We enjoyed the fireplace again !!! We decided to stay in all day Sat. because we were afraid the roads were bad. The snow added so much to our stay. It was fun seeing the kids in the hot tub in the snow ! We watched movies all day and enjoyed the view. Our last day was Sunday and we woke up to the sun shine (first time our whole stay) ! We hated to leave ! We had a little trouble getting out of Laurel Lake Rd. ( icy road) but we found out how helpful the people of Mount Eagle are ! Thanks to all that helped us that day ! What a great adventure we had- I am sure we will be back !!!

James Barber

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much for taking the time to send such a lovely review! It is so wonderful to have our renters tell us how hard it is to leave Lil Bear Cabin! The view, fire place, hot tub, and the coziness of the cabin make for such an amazing environment to have a family gathering! So happy to hear that Lil Bear Cabin stole your hearts and was such a lovely place to have a small family reunion. I am sure that your family from Florida was delighted to see the snow fall on the mountain and to enjoy it from the warmth of the hot tub! Wow! Come back anytime to Lil Bear Cabin anytime! Thanks again for choosing to stay with us!

Peace and quiet.

We were looking for a peaceful weekend getaway and we found it and so much more here at Lil' Bear. This quaint cabin is well stocked and had everything we needed for the weekend. Its out just far enough to keep the place serene, and close enough to town that a trip to the grocery store isn't an all day event. We loved it so much we are already planning a second trip. The owners are delightful to deal with and the place was immaculate. I am not easily impressed, but when I stepped out onto the porch and looked across the valley, the view literally took my breath away.

James Barber

Owner's reply:

Wow! Not often am I left has been an honor to share our cabin on the mountain with you and your wonderful family. Thank you for taking such great care of "my happy place"! You are welcome back anytime at Lil Bear Cabin! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience and thoughts with others! Your words are worth so much more than any marketing!!!! Call when you are ready to return to your "home away from home" at Lil Bear Cabin! Thanks again and see you soon!

Simply put this cabin was amazing, cozy, warm and inviting and all the things you would expect for a vacation get away! My family and I stayed in the cabin through our Christmas vacation and could not have asked for a more beautiful back drop. If you are looking for a "happy place" to get away from the everyday hustle and bustle of the real world then you should really consider lil' bear cabin!

James Barber

Owner's reply:

Wonderful! Thank you so very much for sharing your thoughts with our current and future renters! It is truly a blessing to have such amazing renters who love our cabin on the mountain as much as we do! We love to hear how Lil Bear has touched your hearts while making lasting memories for your family. Come back anytime. We'll leave the lil bear light on for you! :) Have a blessed New Year!

best deal ever!!!

In June two couples ,my husband and I went to a friends wedding in Swanee ,Tn. and stayed at The Lil' Bear Log Cabin. We could not have been any happier with our accommodations.For the price I was alittle worried it was too good to be true but the pictures looked nice.Well when we arrived ,it was all true and it was much better than we expected . The cabin was as cute as cute could be and had everything we needed.The view...oh words can not do the view justice, it was unbelievable.And when we thought it couldn't get any better, there was a hot tub on the back deck overlooking the mountain.We had a wonderful time in Swanee,a very small town with lots to do and see. I thought Renee' was very nice and helpful with the arrangements ,and when we got there the entire town is just as nice and helpful.Great Great trip. I would highly recommend Lil Bear Cabin to friends and told everybody who would listen to me in Swanee if they had friends coming to town tell them to stay at Lil Bear Cabin.

Just RELAX!!!!

I'm not good at just sitting around. My vacations are usually so hectic that I need a vacation from my vacation. But we set out to just relax for the weekend, and Lil' Bear Cabin is the perfect place to do it. Beautiful setting... wonderful cabin... an abundance of things to do if you choose to venture out.... it was a perfect weekend. THANKS!!!

Relaxing stay

The cabin was great. It was cozy and had all the amenities one needs for a long weekend away. Renee was very thoughtful; she left the a bed rail for my 3 year old niece to use. The views were beautiful. It was wonderful relaxing in the hot tub each morning before going hiking. The cabin is also handicapped accessible including the beautiful balcony. This was a huge plus because most cabins are not as accommodating. There are some very good local restaurants with a few minutes drive of the cabin if you don't feel like cooking.

James Barber

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much for your thoughtful review. We truely have been blessed with such lovely renters who enjoy our cabin on the mountain as much as we do!

Great View

My family loved Lil' Bear cabin. In the mornings, we could see the fog rolling through the mountain valley below us. It was a delightful surprise. I highly recommend this cabin for an easy trip to the mountains (from the Nashville area).

The mornings are one of my favorites too! Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts! We appreciate your time and efforts!

This trip was everything we hoped for and more! It had been 15 years since the last time the 5 of us lifelong best friends had been in the same place at the same time. Our trip to Lil Bear was definitely the perfect spot for us to unwind, laugh, talk, reminisce, cry, laugh some more and make wonderful memories together! The cabin was well-stocked with everything we needed and a few things we didn't realize we needed. The owners have put alot of thought and heart into providing a fantastic, cozy retreat for their guests! Oh, and the view and surrounding areas were breathtaking!!! We will definitely make many return trips to Lil Bear Cabin in the future!

Fantastic Get-A-Way

My daughter and grandson and I were lucky enough to find Lil' Bear Cabin to rent for our recent get-a-way to Monteagle. The cabin was perfect with a marvelous view of the bluff. All of the conveniences of home were found at the cabin. We had such a good time exploring the area and visiting Sewanee. I would definitely return to Lil' Bear Cabin.

Cozy and Comfortable with a Spectacular View

Lil' Bear Cabin was the perfect choice for our weekend with family. Cozy and comfortable does not even begin to describe Lil' Bear. It felt like home. It had a personal touch, with attention given to details that made it feel like a home rather than a cabin just furnished with the bare necessities as most rental cabins are. The view was spectacular as well. Everyone enjoyed their time on the spacious deck relaxing and taking in the amazing view. The deck was the choice spot for bird watching, visiting, sipping coffee, star gazing, and for forgetting about the real world in general. Our group consisted of 4 staying 2 nights as well as 3 coming in for a day of visiting. The cabin would have easily have slept all of us and after seeing what they were missing, the 3 that didn't stay the whole weekend were kicking themselves. The rental process was simple and easy with the owner providing thoughtful answers to every question that I had prior to check-in. I am highly recommending Lil' Bear to anyone out there who is in search of relaxation, a wonderful time with others, comfort beyond the ordinary, and unforgettable memories.

Just what we needed!!!!

My husband and I just returned from this PLEASANT cabin. It was exactly what we needed. Quiet, peaceful, and the view is fansastic. There is just a different kind of peace you feel when in the woods. Although we just chose to stay in and relax and reconnect, there are plenty of outdoors ativities in the area including a zipline course! We will ABSOLUTELY be returning both with and without our kids!! There are a couple of board games (we had forgotten how much fun they are) and a gamecube for the kids with a few games and several movies provided. There is also a CD player/radio but no ipod dock to date.At this reasonable price, why would we ever go to a hotel for our getaway again? Oh, and DON"T MISS dinner at Highpoint Restaurant. We have eaten there many times and everything is delicious!! The restaurant is in an old home and has a very interesting/scandalous history too, be sure to inquire!! Also, paying through your paypal account is safe, secure and easy. Thank you guys for sharng your little piece of eaven with us. Just one last word. . .Ahhhhhh!!!!

Beautiful View...

We stayed at Lil' Bear Cabin for a girls' weekend. We absolutely loved the view and the hot tub! The fireplace proved to be a little tricky, and we unfortunately never figured out how to get it going. Overall, great place to stay! Thanks!

"Off the charts stay on the Mountain"
Forget the 5 star cannot put enough stars on this cabin to do it justice. Finally build and beautiful everything you could possible dream about for an outstanding getaway. No juice left in your batteries? No worries 'Lil Bear Cabin will take care of that and have you charged up in no time. Lots of wonderful little places to visit on your stay especially if you enjoy a tasty glass of wine. The hot tub will most certainly relax every last stressed muscle you brought with you on your trip. Do not second guess booking this cabin you will not regret your stay on the mountain. My family enjoyed it so much we went ahead and booked for next year after only one day into our stay. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful home with us. My parting comment... book, book, book today.

I wanted to personally take the time to write and let you know how much my wife and I enjoyed our stay at Lil Bear. The cabin was wonderful, and provided the rest and relaxation that we so desperately needed away from work! Highlights for us included soaking in the jacuzzi, reading books in the loft, preparing meals in the kitchen, and taking in the gorgeous view from the deck. Although we spent most of our time lounging around Lil Bear, we were able to take some time to tour the University of the South campus and also visit at a couple of the restaurants in town during our stay. We appreciate your efforts and consideration in making our stay as enjoyable as possible, and we are looking forward to coming back there very soon! Thanks for having us, and have a great week- Happy renters! Nashville Tn. June 2013

Our family of 4 recently stayed at Little Bear during a reunion weekend at the University of the South. This was my first time using the Internet to find vacation rentals, and I didn't know what to expect - but immediately I was amazed at the ease of communicating with the owner. She is friendly, professional and extremely organized. The cabin itself is wonderful - very clean and well-kept, as well as stocked with all the essentials and amenities. We all loved the hot tub, and the view from the deck was amazing. It was the first weekend of chilly weather for us, and Lil' Bear Cabin was the perfect cozy little retreat. It was such a pleasure to return there after each time we went into campus. I highly recommend Lil' Bear Cabin - it truly felt as if we were borrowing a cabin from a friend - it was a true pleasure both before, during and after our stay!
I definately recommend booking in advance...Lil Bear Cabin is loved by many!

Dear Lil Bear, We had many things to celebrate with our friends this weekend. A birthday, an engagement, and a new baby are life's stepping stones to rejoice. Lil Bear Cabin provided a perfect backdrop for all our celebrations. For Sewanee alumni, there is nothing more magical than returning to our beloved mountain. Through watching th fog rise in the morning and sunsets in the evening, we reconnected and rediscovered our "salad days".(As we always called them.) As avid cooks, we definatley appreciate all the kitchen supplies which were clean and after exploring a bit found everything we needed. The cabin atmosphere was cozy, welcoming, and made our annual Sewanee pilgramage complete! Thank you for sharing!

We enjoyed a superb 3 week stay at Lil Bear Cabin. We aren't actually certain that we did not have a lil bear visitor...two different nights we filled the hummingbird feeder and the next moring the liquid was gone. It probly was a racoon getting a midnight snack, but it makes for a better story to be a bear! :) The hot tub was refreshing after a long days work. Our granddaughters loved spendiung the time in it with us! The view of the valley is breathtaking especially in the morning as the clouds hover over the trees. We were so happy to be here for the Arts and Craft weekend. We bought many American Girl handmade outfits which our granddaughters adore! We found High Point and Mi Casa wonderful dining options and enjoyed both. We are quite intrigued by Monteagle Sunday School Assembly. Thank you for a fantastic experience an sharing your Lil Bear Cabin with us! (Posted from guest book)

We had a wonderful time! Your cabin is indeed a "happy place"! The views of God's wonderful creation are priceless! :-)
It was a special family time for us with our daughter and grandchildren there. Our daughter said that our precious 2 year old told her this Morning that she wanted to go back to the cabin to see Mimi & Pop! we'll have to visit again in the future! She especially loved the "little bears" and listening to the birds sing! Everything was there that we needed, and we so appreciated your thoughtfulness in the details. Thanks again for sharing your cabin on the mountain with our family! We will be back again soon!

Review Submitted April 16, 2012. Date of Stay April 11-15, 2012. I have just returned home after 4 days at Lil Bear .. Words can not begin to express how moved we both are by our experience as guests at Lil Bear .. the only word I have is magical .. The blues will set in when it is time to leave, and for me it was very emotional as well. This place really gave us relaxation, and touched our hearts in a huge way.. it's not something I can explain in words. For a couple's retreat Lil Bear will bring you so much joy and an emotional connection that is simply Magic! The hot tub under the stars is one of our favorite amenities. The owners go the extra mile to provide the perfect place to fall in love, re-connect and relax. Forget the TV we NEVER turned it on. It is not meant to distract you from just "taking it all in". The large deck with plenty of seating provides breathtaking view for your morning coffee or evening sunset w/ cocktails. If you need "it".. it's in there .. Ladies I forgot my blow dryer no worries there is one When reading the guest book you will see how many people Lil Bear has touched in a "BIG" way and at least for me I was completely at a loss for words when adding our entry. We will be back!
Original review entry found on Vacation rentals by owner.

The cabin is SO nice, It has a fully stocked kitchen, washer & dryer, nice bathrooms, plush furniture, gorgeous view and a fabulous hot tub. Great mini vacation...we will definately return to Lil' Bear Cabin.
Sharon Boerger- Murfreesburough Tn.

This cabin was perfect for our getaway weekend! It is far enough away to feel like a getaway trip, yet close enough to be very convenient without all of the hours to get to Gatlinburg (and without all of the traffic!). The cabin itself is very neat and clean and is really a cozy place. The on/off switch gas fireplace is a super nice and convenient touch, especially after coming in from using the hot tub in 30 degree weather! The rooms were very neat and the bathrooms were clean and stocked with everything needed. The living area is nice and warm and it was fun to watch a movie on the DVD player while we watched it rain out the huge set of windows in the front of the cabin! And the view!!! Wow! The view is just amazing! We could have spent a couple more days just sitting and taking that in! After the weather broke, we got to enjoy a beautiful blue sky over the gorge and surrounding rim. I can't say enough about the view. It's the kind of place you put on your fall color seeing to-do list! As far as things to do around the cabin, there are a lot of outdoor activities that are really close, and the cabin is close enough to town to get groceries and to go out to eat if you are so inclined. We took some time to go tour the University of the South (Sewanee), which is just minutes from the cabin. If you have the chance and want to see some beautiful buildings and an amazing place that seems a little out of place, go check this campus out. European architecture in the middle of nowhere Tennessee??? I was surprised and thought it was incredibly beautiful. They have a cathedral there (I can't think of a better word for it) that is an art gallery of stained glass. If you like beautiful buildings and architecture, it's almost a must-see if you stay here since it is so close. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a little time away who doesn't want to drive forever to get there!

Loved Lil' Bear Cabin! We had so much fun, and everybody that dropped by while we were there talked about how perfect it was. I believe some of them are planning to rent it in the future, and I highly recommended it!
Rebecca Morrison, Pukalani, Hawaii

Lovely cabin and very well equipped. We had a wonderful stay for Sewanee Family Weekend despite the floods! Very cozy and wonderful to come back to after our day in the rain. The view is spectacular. The deer that greeted me at 6:30 AM were a special bonus! We will return. Thanks!
