"A Gem!"
I rented this twice, At New Year's and in March 2017. I have rented before at Grand Bear and this is by far the nicest unit we have seen. Unlike those booked through the resort, this is stocked with supplies and amenities you would hope for in a luxury unit! More than you can ask for. Owner has extra air beds, luxury towels, kitchen extras, even cozy throws! It feels more like home than a rental. Owner is absolutely wonderful. You won't be disappointed!

Great weekend
Everything was great. Awesome accommodations. We had a great time. The pool table is a plus. And we were able to get to hiking trails right from the cabin, no driving required another plus. Highly recommended.

No complaints! Great townhouse with a well stocked kitchen.

Good experience. Well appointed. Would suggest owner secure their WiFi, replace the upstairs bathroom vinyl shower liner (master bathroom), and replace the towels (which were very clean) with ones that absorb water better.
