We had a phenomenal time in this authentic pioneer cabin on 5 acres of enchanted forest of 200 foot tall trees. We especially loved drinking coffee on the front deck watching the morning fog on the mountains while listening to the birds sing while the butterflies fluttered in the cool breeze. We also loved relaxing in the hot tub under...

We stayed at Bear Necessities last weekend. We had a little trouble paying because we don't have US credit cards, but everything was OK in the end. We took our friends, so had two couples, and drove up from Atlanta after work, so arrived after 10 p.m. Finding the cabin in the dark was interesting to say the least, but...

Amazing. We had a great time. Reservations were a breeze. People were very pleasant to work with. Directions were simple enough. Although it could sleep up to 6, we vacationed on our own and had our dogs with us. It was more than enough. Far enough away, but close enough to run out and grab something you might've forgotten. The...

My husband and I stayed at "Bear Necessities" in October of 2005 for our honeymoon. I cannot rave about this chalet enough. The house itself is charming with well landscaped yard. And believe me when I tell you that this cabin is private! I live in Tennessee and the cabins are right on top of each other. Not so with...

Even though we stayed here last September 2008, this vacation will always be very special to my husband and I. The cabin was perfect - we stayed in the loft since it was a bit bigger and more fun! Mornings on the deck watching the mountains and then off we went to discover the Smokies. We always tried to get...

Girlfriends' weekend for hiking in the Smokies plus a little luxury at the end of the day. The Bear Necessities cabin is furnished for comfort and with lots of style. The kitchen is well equipped and the mountain views from the dining area., the living area, the deck, the master bedroom, are endless. After a long day of hiking, we...

This is our staple mountain vacation. We live in the Charlotte area and it's so easy and fast for us to get to. We are going back in June 08 for a 4th relaxing stay. Great bang for the buck!! Being so close to the NC mountains, we have stayed at over a dozen mountain cabins, and this is a...

If you want to rent a cabin in this area, you really need to look at the above link. I have stayed at this companies cabins before and they are great. Spring 2007 we stayed in Bear Necessities. It is located near both Dillsboro and Cherokee. It has a fantastic north view over a beautiful valley and you can see...
