"The Bear’s Den" is a beautiful log home located in a private community on the east shore of Lake Lure. The peaceful, wooded location is within walking distance of a quiet cove on Lake Lure for fishing or swimming. This destination is sure to spark treasured family memories for years to come (sorry, no four-legged family members). It is easily accessible from the parking area via a ramp, which is wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair. This home is 6.5 miles to the Beach at Lake Lure, 7.9 miles to Chimney Rock State Park, and 18.2 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC). If you enjoy privacy, The Bear’s Den offers seclusion. Lake Lure Beach and Marina are not too far away if you plan on venturing out to enjoy a weekend by the lake. If you would rather spend the day hiking along the scenic trails, Chimney Rock State Park is less than 10 minutes from the cabin. The wonderful two-story great room has beautiful wood floors, a floor to ceiling stone fireplace with gas logs and is furnished with locally crafted log furniture. The living room features DirecTV and a DVD player with surround sound. The king bed suite has a rocking chair, many charming decorative accents, and sliding door that leads to the covered deck. Begin your morning with coffee on the porch swing. The ceramic-tile bathroom adjoining the suite has a corner jetted tub for a relaxing soak after a day spent hiking, swimming or fishing. Guests will appreciate the two additional bedrooms, each with sliding doors that lead to the deck. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other has 2 twin beds. There is a full bath (tub/shower combination) nearby. Stairs from the living area lead to a cozy loft. Furnished with a queen futon, DirecTV and a game table, it is a perfect spot for an additional sleeping area, quiet reading or board games (bring cards or your favorites games to enjoy). Covered porches surround the front of the cabin and ample glass doors and windows offer soothing views of the woods beyond. There is also a back deck and a screened porch off the kitchen where guests can enjoy breakfast with the sounds of nature. Beautiful winter views of Lake Lure add to the enjoyment of a winter stay at the Bear's Den. This mountain home is perfect for every season! Enjoy the beautiful snowy weather in the winter where a cozy cabin feels just right. Stay warm by the fireplace or relax in the jetted tub in the master bath. Visit in the summer when the weather is perfect all the time and you can enjoy the soothing summer breezes and beautiful sunsets from the scenic porch overlook. No matter the season, this mountain home, our beautiful area, and Lake Lure have so much to offer, whether it is plentiful choices of restaurants or shopping, or a fun outdoor adventure you and your loved ones will never forget. If you visit once we are confident you’ll return again and again for the rest, beauty, fun, comfort, and hospitality. We hope to see you soon and look forward to you being our guest!
