This is a great place to use as a home base for enjoying all of what the North Georgia area has to offer. The road in is a little challenging, I was glad we were in a truck. The house is compact and well equipped, nice screen porch for the evenings. I would (and probably will) stay there again.

Unique Cabin Very Private Reviewed by: Gina G from Gadsden, Alabama Reviewed on: 06/13/2017 for their stay in 06/2017 Stonybrook Lodge My sister and I along with our teenage kids and friends stayed here for a rafting trip. It is very nice and well maintained. I loved all the privacy, enjoyed the fire pit and hot tub and strolled along all the acreage and creek. Got the perfect picture of the Strawberry Moon. Our kids loved playing air hockey upstairs and the hot tub. We would highly recommend this place.

What a nice little cabin. Incredible view. The sun went down around 9 pm when we were there so the long sunsets made it even better. We were only 2 plus a small dog, so we only utilized the downstairs during our stay. The upstairs seems nice, but only has an exterior staircase to the downstairs and the only bathroom is inside downstairs. The plan was to use the hot tub, as it is located on the hill with the view, but we were content building fires outside and hanging out around the house and porch. Maybe next time. There is central a/c but we left it off most of the time we were there in favor of leaving doors and windows open (all have screens on them) and having the fans on (there are lots of fans - awesome). There is a small fire pit and they can provide you with fire wood - which we took full advantage of. Build a fire early evening and you can enjoy the fire and the view all at once. The kitchen has modern appliances - we cooked our dinner on the fire every night but made breakfast in the kitchen in the morning. Plenty of cups, utensils, pots, pans, plates, etc. You will need a raised 4 wheel or all wheel drive vehicle to get up the driveway. Its quite a steep climb up a gravel path from the gate.

5 Br/4 Ba, House w/hot tub Near Ocoee Whitewater Rafting Wonderful secluded property We had a great time over the Memorial Day weekend. There was PLENTY of space at the property. The management company was super nice and easy to work with. There was a slight issue with one of the toilets. I called and someone came out the same night to fix the toilet. The property is very close to outdoor activities if thats your thing. You should check out all the beautiful outdoor scenery Tennessee has to offer while youre there. The pictures online do no the property justice. Its a great place for a large group! You wont be disappointed!!!

Great stay. Left on May 30, 2017 for a stay in May 2017 This was my first time renting a cabin, and I have to say was a good experience. The cabin has a large open floor on main with an updated kitchen. It has one bedroom on main and one upstairs which is very convenient for a family with kids. For the best comfort the max occupancy should be 2 with 2-3 kids( teens). The porch is a wrapped around and very wide making it perfect for outside gatherings. The pool and ping pong table in the unfinished basement helps If you are coming with kids. There is a private property very close by, just as you look from the front porch. However, it is close to 2 major fun activities water rafting and zip lining, just 12-15 min away in TN( Whitewater")

I just wanted to touch base with you to say how much we enjoyed our stay at the Lil Beaver. We were beyond impressed! And my driving mate wanted to be sure I told you that he was very appreciative of your on point directions! The cabin was super clean and well stocked, not to overlook how beautiful it was and so perfectly furnished. We could not stop commenting on how overly accommodating it was. Our only regret was leaving - but we will be back! Many sincere thanks for everything. We will not even consider renting out from anyone else! You had us pretty much locked in with the directions - and that was just a peek into how perfect the cabin and our stay was. Thank you so much, Bryan! Hope you are well and enjoyed family and friends today! Til next time - Rebecca S

"Lil Beaver" is a cozy, comfortable, well stocked cabin. The downstairs space & large grilling area are the key to a great, relaxing stay. Although in a well occupied cabin community, this home is a the end of a road, which adds to the peacefulness. The pond is a great touch, even with public access and a road bordering the opposite side. We were pleasantly surprised how peaceful & quite this place was. We saw a group of deer around the pond one morning. Lots of birds & squirrels to watch. The fire pit was awesome, but I would suggest bringing some camping/sporting style chairs, the swing is just a bit far from the pit, but a nice touch. As others have suggested, its best to have 4 wheel drive or an SUV for the roads & driveway. Follow Bryans directions for the smoothest arrival. Waze gets you close, but once you leave the blacktop, its best you know the way! We will be back! Wonderful place. Amicalola Falls & several sections of the Appalachian Trail are within driving distance. We did a day hike on the AT. We also discovered the Benton MacKaye Trail (BMT) goes through this community. Just pick up the white diamonds on Indian Rock Road & enjoy some light hiking without driving away from the cabin.

This was our first stay at the Bears Den, and we definitely plan on coming back. The cabin itself was extremely clean and well kept, and everything we needed for our stay was available. We felt like we were staying in a place of our own. The owners provide everything you need to cook and stay comfortably. Theres plenty of space for a family and the cabin provided the warm cozy feel we were looking for. The location is ideal if youre looking to explore surrounding towns such as Dahlonega or Blue Ridge but also perfect if youre looking to relax and enjoy a quiet cabin experience. Theres also a perfect area outside to enjoy the view and go fishing in the creek. I would definitely recommend the Bears Den cabin if youre looking for a cozy getaway with plenty of options around to stay entertained.

Nice mountain getaway My kids found two box turtles within an hour of arrival. We had a great time exploring around the cabin, hiking some outstanding trails, and looking around McCaysville and Blue Ridge. The cabin sits on the side of a ridge with an outstanding sunset view down the valley from the screened-in porch. We also enjoyed the pool table and the hot tub. This is a great spot for families like ours that like to cook our own meals and travel on a budget. You will hear cows mooing in the distance in the evening (and thats all) - very nice. The hosts were very helpful with detailed directions to the cabin. They also answered all of my questions quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend this rental to you.

We went at the last minute, and the host was very responsive. We found the house fairly easily, it was just as described with a nice interior. Perfect for four people. I truly loved the way the porches basically put the house out over the river/creek. Fabulous burbling!

We had another good review for one of our newest additions to the program- The cabin was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay. Listening to the creek is very relaxing. The cabin has nice furnishings and we were able to enjoy a fire in the fireplace. I would recommend this cabin. Because it was our 40th anniversary, there was a bouquet of flowers and a very nice card waiting for us when we opened the door. The pictures that are posted are of the actual cabin and creek. The cabin was clean and well maintained. This cabin is located near Mercier Apple Orchard and just a few minutes from Blue Ridge. Beth P, Dawson, GA

Bryan was a great host. My girlfriend and I had a great time. The cabin was beautiful and so was the view on the back porch. You can see all the stars in the evening on a clear night. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. All you really need to bring is clothes and some food. Bryan was very flexible on the checkout date which was very nice. Honestly we didnt want to leave the cabin because we loved it so much. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this cabin!

Mountain home away from home Left on Nov 3, 2016 for a stay in Oct 2016 Cabin was fantastic! Literal home away from home. Satellite Direct TV access, Xbox console, washer/dryer, dishwasher, fireplace, hot tub and BBQ grille all available for the renters enjoyment made the stay all that more comfortable. It was equipped with every amenity and comfort of home you could possibly want. Walk in with your luggage and get right to feeling at home. The VIEW is phenomenal. Sit on the front porch or in the hot tub and enjoy the sweeping view of the mountain range. It was secluded enough to feel like you had gotten away from everything, but close enough to every necessity you could need . close to downtown Blue Ridge, Mercier Orchards, shopping, and gas stations and Walmart for supplies. The road up the mountain is a true mountain road and requires a slight bit of familiarity with driving on rough and steep terrain, but once you get there its well worth the drive! The location made for wonderful early morning and late evening walks around the area. The fire pit was a wonderful location to sit with a beer and roast marshmallows to wind down. The management company was absolutely wonderful. Such nice folks! Had a minor problem with a slight power surge that popped off the hot tub, called the management office and they couldnt have been more accommodating and lovely to deal with!! They made it extremely easy to check in and check out. It truly felt like home. We will be returning for sure! Looking forward to making more valuable family memories!!!
