“Perfect cabin for a girls weekend!!!on”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2016

OMG where do I even begin?! I booked the Bears Den for a bachelorette weekend in the woods and I was so nervous about it for many reasons .BUT as soon as we walked into the cabin all my worries were gone ! It had everything we needed from all the kitchen utensils to the amazing hot tub and fire pit ! We spent most of our 3 days just going from relaxing in the cabin during day to spending the evenings in the hot tub and around the fire pit :) we felt so relaxed, which is so easy to do at the Bears den , I had a lot of DIY projects planned to keep the girls entertained that we didn't even do them Bc we were soooo relaxed ; we didn't even take advantage of the impressive basement filled with games , a pool table and a dart board ! We did spend an afternoon tubing ( just Bc i booked a reservation ) , which was conveniently only 15 mins away and shopped at the little shops on the way back to the cabin. All in all everyone was happy with the weekend and cabin that some of the girls wanted to come back with other friends for other celebrationa and I KNOW i want to as well ! OH and what also made the Bear den so great was Ghada! She was so nice and easy to work with between booking to questions we had along the way ! You can tell her and her family really paid attention to detail regarding the cabin from cute little decorations to all the supplies you may need for a weekend in the woods ! You do need to bring your own wood for the fire pit but after paying our last portion to the cabin , Ghada provided contact person who can deliver the wood straight to the cabin ( who btw was also really nice and easy to work with .) All in all the bear den was the PERFECT! Definitely a great getaway cabin for families, couples , and friends !!!!

#1 spot to hide away from all the craziness of DC. Clean and cute. Amazing hot tub. Great location. Missed it already.

“Lovely spot in the mountains”

Reviewed 27 Jun 2016

We enjoyed a beautiful week in the Shenandoah mountains. Bear sightings while hiking and canoeing on the Shenandoah river were special highlights. The Bear's Den Cabin is spacious and very clean. The hot tub was a great way to relax after our hiking trips. We especially enjoyed the view from the kitchen, and playing games on the pool table. Although the property is very close to the national park, the nearest hikes we could find were a half hour away. The hot water tank is also a bit small; there was not enough hot water to fill the bathroom jacuzzi.

“Fantastic family vacation!”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2014

The cabin was spacious, well furnished and very accommodating for our two families. It had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We enjoyed many mornings and evenings out on the large deck. The views were great and the cabin provided a great base for us to explore the Shenandoah Valley. We would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a secluded retreat and the opportunity to explore the area.

Owner's reply: Joni- Sounds like you and your family had a great time in the Shenandoah area. We are so happy to hear that you made lots of great memories and are happy that we were able to be a part of that. Thank you for staying at the Bears Den and we hope to have you come back in the future!

Though the road leading right up to the cabin is a bit rugged, it is absolutely worth the effort! This is a beautiful cabin in a spectacular setting. It is beautifully furnished and comfortable inside; the outside amenities are perfect. Loved the hot tub and fire pit, and the deck is the best. I would recommend the Bears Den without hesitation to families or groups. We are grateful for our time together in this special place. OH, and Ghada was very helpful and responsive...

“This place is amazing.”

Reviewed 19 Mar 2014

This is everything you want in a cabin: comfort and luxury in a rustic-looking place, fires indoor and out, a great hot tub, a game room, a fantastic kitchen, etc., etc. Everyone was blown away. Come with a big group. Just don't try to make it up the hill after a snowstorm!

“Great Cabin”

Reviewed 9 Mar 2014

My friends and I rented the cabin for a weekend get away. The cabin was perfect for our large group and had everything we needed. The kitchen is fully stocked, there are plenty of games, and the setting is beautiful. We loved the view and enjoyed sitting in the hot tub or by the fire pit. We wouldn't change anything about the experience!

Owner's reply: Allison, So glad to hear that you had fun and enjoyed the beautiful views! It's the perfect place to make memories. Hope to have you back at the Bears Den Cabin! Ghada

“Great stay at The Bears Den”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2014

I stayed at The Bears Den with a large group (12 of us total) between the ages of 21-25 for five nights, and we all had a fantastic time. We traveled from Northern New Jersey (5 hour trip), Philly, Baltimore, and DC. The house provided ample entertainment for all of us, as the dart board, pool table, satellite televisions, gourmet kitchen, hot tub and wood stove all were used throughout. We also used the fire pit in the backyard one day, which was a lot of fun as well. The view is spectacular and the location is very remote and relaxing. The house is beautifully decorated and has many bear-themed objects and pictures around the cabin, which is fun. There were not many reviews by younger people, but I assure you, this is a fantastic retreat for a young group with plenty to do and comfortable space. We all loved The Bears Den!

“Fabulous place!”

Reviewed 31 Oct 2013

This is the second year in a row we've rented this house - it's perfect, secluded and beautiful. We have had many great days here - this last trip it rained every day, but we still managed to have a great time and get outside for some hiking. I can't recommend this place enough!!

Owner's reply: Andi, Always a pleasure to have you stay at the Bears Den! We love it as much as you do and we loved hearing that you had another great weekend at the cabin. Come back soon!! Ghada

“Beautiful Home -- Exceeded our Expectations!”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2013

The pictures are great, but the cabin is even better! And the location is perfect -- feels secluded without being secluded! Beautiful sunsets, campfires in the firepit, fireflies, smores, wine on the deck . . . it doesn't get much better! Great vacation home for adventures in Shenandoah! We will be back!

Owner's reply: Kim, Thanks so much for posting a review for us. It's so nice to hear how our guests enjoyed the Bears Den and it gives potential renters a great reason to come and experience what we think is a fabulous getaway cabin! So happy that you and your group had such a great time and we would love to have you back!! Ghada
