Wonderful Cabin in the woods!
5 / 5 Excellent
We (myself, spouse, oldest son and his wife and 2 young kids) came to the area to be close to our youngest son and his family who were camping at Bandy Creek. (My youngest son was running in the No Business 100 mile race through the Big South Fork TN and KY -- and yes he got 5th place!). Our primary goals were to have the whole family together, and support our son running in the race. My group spent nights and mornings at the Bears Den and we all spent the day hours at Bandy Creek Campground so we could all hang out and 6 cousins could play full speed at the playground and riding bikes for miles and miles together at the campground. Great fun had by all. The local Walmart, Little Ceasars and many of your usual fast food restaurants were a short drive to town. We picked up what we needed for cooking and snacks, etc on the way in at Walmart. The cabin is welcoming from the moment you drive up. The decor was just perfect. It was very clean which I super appreciated. We all loved the whole deck, the chairs, rockers, and the incredible swing. Loved the upper level deck. With Rachels permission we invited 2 of our little grandkids at campground to overnight with us and the cousins put up a kids popup tent on the upper deck and had their own little private "campout" which was safe and super fun. The smaller 2 had to stay inside on the bunk beds which was just as fun! Never ran out of hot water. Had everything we needed. There were other cabins nearby but you are still secluded and private. Sweet little pond down the hill and the fish follow you around as you walk by. We had some TV but really, we were so busy we did not use it. Also, cell phones were sketchy at best, but I was able to find about 1/2 bar for texts in about 3 random spots on site, but if you are not patient or persistent you probably wont find those spots, or you could sign onto the wifi and communicate by emails, which worked perfectly well. I seldom find a bed I like anywhere but we had no problems with comfort in this retreat. Rachel was extremely responsive to any questions I had as we prepared for our trip. Really, I could just go on and on. This rating is a 5 all the way!!! And did I mention there are so many wonderful places to hike, bike, stroll, sit, or just get away. Thank You Bears Den for a great stay.
