Located in the southeast corner of Tennessee, surrounded by the Cherokee National Forest and nestled between Georgia and North Carolina just minutes from the Cherohala Skyway and Tail of the Dragon famous touring loop. Whether you are looking for a remote setting for a romantic outdoor candlelight dinner overlooking a massive stone fire pit or a destination for your adventurous family with a private upstairs suite for the kids, the Bear has it all and more. Still not convinced...... check out our backyard with its hundreds of miles of recreation. FOR RELAXING Sit in a large porch rocker on the private wrap around porch with views of the Unicoi Mountains. Listen to the beautiful sounds of water in Historic Coker Creek or enjoy the song of the Whip-poor-will while eating at the outdoor dining table. The outdoor fire pit can be enjoyed from the overlooking porch or the seating surrounding it. FOR THE MORE ADVENTUREOUS The Ole Bear's backyard is surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, lakes and streams, hiking trails and scenic drives. You can enjoy a ride above the clouds on the nearby Cherohala Skyway or wind your way up Chilhowee Mountain on the Ocoee Scenic Loop, the first designated national forest scenic byway in the nation. Catch a wily trout at Bald River Falls or hike through the mountains to any of our 12 waterfalls . If none of that is of interest...... how about whitewater rafting and zip-lining, motorcycle touring, fishing, golf, gold panning, mountain biking, kayaking, horseback riding!?!? AMENITIES Air conditioned with a gas fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, linens and towels, washer and dryer, TV/DVD combo w/ Chromecast, You tube TV, Amazon Fire Stick, high-speed WiFi internet, fire pit with firewood furnished, walking trails on property, gas and charcoal grills. ABOUT THE OWNER In 2010 while on vacation from Florida, my husband and I found a beautiful property in the East Tennessee mountains to build our vacation cabin. After retirement as a School Administrator, years of traveling and building nearing completion, we shifted gears and decided to make our cabin our permanent home. So, in 2014, we packed up our two rescue dogs and moved full time to this beautiful area. We haven't looked back since. In 2016, fearful of running out of projects (lol), we purchased an adjacent property with a long time vacation rental in need of work. After months of blood, sweat and yes, some tears we are ready to re-offer the 'This Ole Bear' to vacationers of these beautiful mountains. More
