We made the best memories here. The setting is majestic, the house is perfect. Views to lake unmatched. The house comfortable, and it is vintage. Sort of a time piece. Board games from the 70's, VHS tapes, cassette player and tapes. Loved every minute of it, and the house is super clean too. Mikee and Mark are the best hosts. They genuinely care. We had access to their friends' pontoon boat- the kids went tubing and had the time of their lives. Smores at the fire pit every night, grilled out day and night. Cannot recommend this place enough. Privacy, comfortable, and all around great time! Just minutes from downtown Cashiers too. Book it!!
It would be very hard to find a more beautiful place!
We love the mountains and the lake. Hard to find a place that delivers both AND is pet friendly. Red Bear Cabin delivers! It’s a fantastic location! It’s on the lake and within 25 minutes (or less) of numerous hiking trails and gorgeous waterfalls. Had beautiful lake views (as advertised). We used the kayaks and the chimnea pot. Also, just a 10-minute drive to Cashiers and roughly 30 to Highlands. Enjoyed the eclectic and vintage decor. Kitchen and bathrooms are updated (as advertised). The best stocked kitchen we’ve encountered. Owner Mike was very responsive and helpful. Already planning a return trip!
We had a wonderful Fall Break at this property. The location is wonderful, central to hiking, grocery store, beautiful lot on the lake. The cabin was very spacious and our two families could separate easily. We enjoyed the fire pits outside, the kitchen is well equipped and the cabin has charm that reminded us of our parents and grandparent's places. We arrived just in time to see the leaves changing, the waterfalls on the lake were wonderful. Very quiet. The laundry is spacious and worked well. We were asked by the owner to take our trash and recycling to the Recycling Center as we left town, which is about 4 miles away. Please know this so you can keep all your recycling separate between glass, cardboard and plastic, also so you can plan ahead. Great place to relax and enjoy North Carolina.
We had a great time and will be back again.
Stayed in red bear cottage for 6 nights with 4 adults and three teens, perfect size for this group. Right on Lake Glenville and 2.5 miles to Cashiers. Classic mountain lake cottage with beautiful views, outdoor grille and fire pit.
We were right on the Lake with a gentle slope to the Boat dock & Lower patios. Easy to get around see the waterfalls & visit the Nearby villages of Glenville & Cashiers. The home is well equipped & perfect for 2-7 persons. We were 7. We hope to come back next year. Mike & Mark & the cleaning crew were the best. They have good info. of the area & are from the area. The sunset cruise was a perfect finally night. Hugs! J&M & Crew
We had a fabulous stay at the roomy, well stocked Red Bear Cabin. Our family reunion was so relaxing and active. We were swimming in the lake, hiking all the local waterfalls, shopping unique stores, and enjoying local restaurants. We also enjoyed the beautiful views and relaxing meals at the cabin. We had six adults and three children at the cabin. A good time was had by all! We hope for a return visit in the future for a repeat of such good times.
My husband and I rented for the eclipse week and loved the beautiful setting and home. Mike met us upon arrival and we instantly understood why the place is so great. Mike and Mark and their family clearly love the place and have taken great care of it and are "concerned" hosts... they try and make sure you are pleased and comfortable in their home. Mike gave us the tour and some history of the place and pointed out the few quirks which any lake cabin/home will have! This was very helpful in helping us be good stewards of the place. We did not use the bottom floor except for laundry so I can't speak for staying in that part of the house but it seems a perfect home for adults upstairs and kids downstairs. The living room was cozy and comfortable and we used the bright and light dining room more as a reading porch/work area as our weather was great and we were able to eat all our meals on the deck. The deck provided us a great view of the lake and the island across the way. We were far up enough to be able to see everything but close enough to easily get to and from the dock and the lake. Our favorite activity was taking the kayaks out everyday and exploring different parts of the lake. We even purchased an extra night as we didn't want to leave. My sister and husband stayed that night and they loved it, too. There is nothing super modern and fancy about the place which is exactly how a lake place should be. We found it to be perfect and cannot think of any big suggestions for improvement. The kitchen was more updated than I expected and was just right. Grocery store was just four miles away so the ease of access was good. Lake temps in August proved to be perfect. Overall we had a wonderful time and to our surprise I think we had the best eclipse view we could find without gobs of other people being around. It was a fun day and we got especially lucky as the cloud cover parted just in time for the whole thing. We got to see a beautiful "sunrise" at the northern end of our lake view as the shadow moved across the sun. Kayaking to the island one day we witnessed a deer on the beach for a spell before she headed back into the woods. Mike assured me this was a rare sight. There was some highway noise (the downside of easy access) but not enough to disturb us much. Mostly the place is peaceful and quiet except for the boats, which is to be expected. Eclipse day was extremely quiet to my happy surprise. We loved the place and will be back!!
Thanks for a great week! Kitchen was well stocked and we appreciated the fun personal touches throughout the house. The setting is beautiful and we enjoyed sitting on the various patios as well as the dock. We made use of the kayaks (which was wonderful) and made s'mores in the chimerea.
